What is Clinical Psychology? Summary

Clinical psychology is the fastest growing health care profession within the UK National Health Service, and is increasingly important in other parts of Northern Europe and English-speaking countries. This book explains what clinical psychology is, and what clinical psychologists do, to a non-specialist but informed readership. It explains the conceptual framework which clinical psychologists adopt, the rationale behind their techniques, and uses detailed case studies and examples to illustrate their practice. It provides further accessible reading, and a glossary of terms, to introduce this growing area of work. The authors are all leading clinicians and researchers, and specialists in their fields. This second edition has been fully revised to take account of the way in which the profession of clinical psychology has developed, and how health services are being reorganized and delivered. Two new chapters are included, one on psychological work with offenders, and the other on alcohol and drug misusers. Other significant new material covers child abuse, and new patterns of work with people with severe learning disabilities. It also takes account of practice in Europe and the USA. This book is intended for psychology undergraduates taking options in abnormal or clinical psychology; students on clinical psychology MSc courses; practitioners or trainees in health care professions (clinical psychology, medicine); health service managers and patients.
