Clinical Handbook of Psychological Disorders, Fifth Edition: A Step-by-Step Treatment Manual by David H. Barlow
This clinical reference and widely adopted text is recognized as the premier guide to understanding and treating frequently encountered psychological disorders in adults. Showcasing evidence-based psychotherapy models, the volume addresses the most pressing question asked by students and practitioners–“How do I do it?” Leading authorities present state-of-the-art information on each clinical problem and explain the conceptual and empirical bases of their respective therapeutic approaches. Procedures for assessment, case formulation, treatment planning, and intervention are described in detail. Extended case examples with session transcripts illustrate each component of the treatment.

Barlow has done it again–assembled a stellar group of scientist-practitioners to write scholarly yet accessible chapters on the full array of commonly encountered psychological disorders. Each chapter provides a sophisticated examination of psychopathology, assessment, and the best evidence-based interventions, interweaving science and practice in a dynamic fashion. Like the previous editions, this thoroughly updated and expanded volume is a ‘must read’ for graduate students, researchers, clinicians, clinical supervisors, and instructors.”–Gerald C. Davison, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, University of Southern California
“This fifth edition makes an already outstanding work even better. Existing chapters have been updated with the latest empirical and clinical evidence, and new chapters represent important developments in the field. This book is special for several reasons: The authors are top-notch, chapters cover both psychopathology and treatment, and an extensive case study with session dialogue is included in each chapter. Almost no publishers allow chapters of sufficient length to include all these important elements, but this book has them. Barlow’s book has been an invaluable part of my course on empirically supported psychotherapies for clinical psychology graduate students for a decade; the fifth edition will continue to be the basis of my course for years to come.”–Dianne L. Chambless, Ph.D., Professor, and Director of Clinical Training, Department of Psychology, University of Pennsylvania
“Barlow has assembled core treatment protocols written by leading experts in this clear, comprehensive, and highly practical volume. Each chapter includes a discussion of diagnostic criteria, evidence base, assessment, and treatment, culminating in an engaging case presentation. Key treatment considerations are artfully woven throughout the chapters. Conveying essential information in a usable fashion, this is the perfect text for teaching evidence-based interventions.”–Jillon S. Vander Wal, PhD, Department of Psychology, Saint Louis University
“Barlow has once again produced a top-notch resource for behavioral health professionals! Chapters are written by experts on each disorder and include reviews of the extant research as well as very helpful case examples. The fifth edition incorporates findings from the latest research as well as new chapters on such important areas as generalized anxiety disorder, sleep disorders, and co-occurring depression and substance use disorders. This is an invaluable resource for graduate students as well as practitioners seeking a comprehensive resource on the nature and treatment of psychological disorders.”–Julia D. Buckner, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, Louisiana State University
“This text has consistently served as the single best instructional aid for teaching evidence-based therapies to clinical psychology students in our doctoral program. Barlow has once again assembled the best clinicians and scholars to provide a thoughtful balance of theory, rationale, evidence, and clinical techniques. Although many of the included approaches have longstanding track records of efficacy in reducing human suffering, the fifth edition succeeds in keeping the material current, fresh, and relevant.”–David M. Fresco, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, Kent State University; Department of Psychiatry, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine
“Clinical Handbook of Psychological Disorders, Fifth Edition, offers a comprehensive, in-depth look at DSM-5 psychological disorders. The descriptions of diagnostic criteria, clinical features, empirically-based treatment techniques, and accompanying case examples are a great way to help trainees and experienced practitioners obtain detailed information about each disorder. I assign this book to my students and find it to be a reference that I utilize time and again.”–Lisa A. Paul, PhD, Department of Psychology, Northern Illinois University
“The first day of class was yesterday, and students are already enthusiastic about the fifth edition of Barlow’s Handbook! For the past 15 years, subsequent editions of this text have played an important role in my teaching the main evidence-based interventions for common mental health disorders to clinical social work students. Chapters are authored by the treatment developers themselves and are structured to provide an immediately practical foundation. Each edition is better than the one before it! Finding a text that navigates this complex territory authoritatively from an evidence-based practice perspective and makes it understandable to beginning clinicians has been extremely valuable.”–André Ivanoff, Ph.D., Columbia University School of Social Work
