Praise for the Clinician's Guide to Evidence-Based PracticeSeries
"A major stumbling block to the adoption of evidence-basedpractice in the real world of clinical practice has been theabsence of clinician-friendly guides suitable for learning specificempirically supported treatments. Such guides need to beunderstandable, free of technical research jargon, infused withclinical expertise, and rich with real-life examples. Rubin andSpringer have hit a home run with the Clinician's Guide toEvidence-Based Practice Series, which has all of thesecharacteristics and more."
--Edward J. Mullen, Willma and Albert Musher Chair Professor,Columbia University
