With the goal of integrating science and practice, each chapter also provides substantive therapeutic guidelines derived from the research. Contributors identify underlying principles of change that clinicians can draw on to improve their effectiveness and offer critical guidance for assessment, case formulation, and evidence-based intervention.

With more than 200 publications, Dr. Castonguay focuses his research on different aspects of therapeutic change and training (including variables related to interventions, relationship, client, and therapist), especially in the context of psychotherapy integration. He is also involved in practice-oriented research and the development of practice research networks aimed at facilitating collaboration between clinicians and researchers. In addition, he has been investigating the process and efficacy of new integrative treatments for generalized anxiety disorder and depression. Dr. Castonguay is a recipient of the Distinguished Psychology Award from Division 29 (Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy) of the American Psychological Association and the Distinguished Career Award from the Society for Psychotherapy Research (SPR). He has served as president of SPR and of the North American chapter of SPR. Thomas F. Oltmanns, PhD, is the Edgar James Swift Professor of Psychology in Arts and Sciences and Professor of Psychiatry at Washington University in St. Louis, where he was formerly Director of Clinical Training in Psychology.

He has served on the board of directors of the Association for Psychological Science and as president of the Society for Research in Psychopathology, the Society for a Science of Clinical Psychology, and the Academy of Psychological Clinical Science. Dr. Oltmanns is a recipient of awards for outstanding teaching from Washington University in St. Louis and the University of Virginia, as well as the Toy Caldwell-Colbert Award for Distinguished Educator in Clinical Psychology from Division 12 (Society of Clinical Psychology) of the American Psychological Association. Abigail Powers Lott, PhD, ABPP, is Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Emory University School of Medicine.

She has received numerous teaching awards for her efforts in educating both clinical psychology interns and psychiatry residents at Emory University
"The eagerly awaited second edition of this text belongs on the bookshelf of every graduate student, clinician, and researcher interested in the contemporary relation between clinical science and practice. Castonguay, Oltmanns, and Lott have brought together a stellar group of contributors. Indeed, a significant strength of this book is its breadth. This volume goes beyond simple DSM symptom-based descriptions of various forms of psychopathology, reviewing basic research on 'non-symptom' characteristics of disorders--such as social and occupational functioning, emotion dysregulation, and the cultural context in which the aberrant behaviors occur--and discussing implications of this research for evidence-based prevention and treatment. Contemporary transdiagnostic concerns are highlighted in important new chapters on suicidality, sleep difficulties, and sexual problems."--Ian H. Gotlib, PhD, David Starr Jordan Professor, Department of Psychology, Stanford University "The editors are the perfect team for a volume that focuses on the integration of clinical science and practice. They have assembled a broad team of experts who address basic research on psychopathology and its translation into evidence-based practice in each chapter. The book provides graduate students with an 'all-in-one' package that will foster their development as clinical scientists."--Joanne Davila, PhD, Department of Psychology, Stony Brook University, State University of New York
