Everything you didn’t know about the effectiveness of evidence-based psychotherapy in the university setting Evidence-Based Psychotherapy Practice in College Mental Health presents an overview of EBP theory, research, and practice with a focus on the key issues in this growing field. The book features individual chapters on depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and alcohol abuse, and includes a special section on training in EBP through college counseling center based practicums and internships. Contributors address common concerns and issues about EBP and present recommendations for future practice and research in college counseling centers. College counseling center administrators and staff face the increasing challenge of providing services that address the unique stresses and dynamics facing students who often deal with multiple co-existing disorders as well as the normal developmental challenges of adjusting to college life. Evidence-Based Psychotherapy Practice in College Mental Health provides mental and behavioral health professionals with insight into the considerable contrast between theory, practice, and research in EBP as they evaluate its effectiveness on campus. The book looks at which evidence-based methods are currently used for clinical assessment and treatment, how evidence-based approaches apply to the therapy practiced on most campuses, and what the implications are for practice and research in university mental health settings. Evidence-Based Psychotherapy Practice in College Mental Health examines evidence-based treatment of: alcohol related issues (personalized feedback, attitudinal change techniques, skills-based approaches, single-session interventions) depression (length of psychotherapy, diagnostic purity, lack of adherence to specific theoretical models) anxiety disorders (effectiveness studies, efficacious studies, common factors, therapist-relationship factors) eating disorders (EBP research paradigms, populations studied, interventions, assessments and outcome measures, multicultural considerations) Evidence-Based Psychotherapy Practice in College Mental Health also offers suggestions for college counseling center clinical supervisors on how to incorporate EBP training while balancing common concerns about the applicability of EBP in working with college students. This unique book is an important resource for all practitioners working in university settings—from practicum students to seasoned professionals.

`Reflective Practice in Mental Health provides a key foundation for socially-oriented practice. It integrates what is still relevant from earlier traditions (including neglected areas such as psychoanalytic perspectives), and links this to leading edge research and analysis. What is particularly refreshing is its willingness to engage with the depth and complexity of mental health difficulties - signposting a way forward that is grounded in theory and research, and taking us beyond the reactive, procedural and over-medicalised approaches that can dominate current practice.'---Jerry Tew, Senior Lecturer in Social Work, University of Birmingham, UK `An excellent book and a must for the professional who wants to further develop their knowledge and practice of psychosocial practice. It is timely as social work needs to raise its game and to establish its professional identity. Using a variety of case studies showing how a range of methods of intervention can work, this makes compelling reading for those who are engaged in working with people who have mental health problems. This book will appeal to a range of mental health professionals and is especially relevant for practitioners who are looking to develop advanced psychosocial practice'---Professor Malcolm Golightley, Head of the School of Health and Social Care, University of London, UK Reflective Practice in Mental Health is the authoritative, definitive guide to psychosocial theory, research and practice in mental health work with children and adults.

In Saving Talk Therapy, master therapist Dr. Enrico Gnaulati presents powerful case studies from his practice to remind patients and therapists alike how and why traditional talk therapy works and, using cutting-edge research findings, unpacks the problematic incentives in our health-care system and in academic psychology that explain its decline." -- From Amazon.com summary.
