This book provides a clinical tool for recognizing, and understanding, human adaptive responses to stress and the anxiety it causes. For use in the here-and-now, the recognition algorithm systematically delineates the observable hierarchy of psychological adaptive mechanisms, known in psychoanalytic theory as ego defenses, established in previous longitudinal research. Based in a theoretical model, it teaches practical, systematic recognition of these mechanisms which are not only helpful to know when seeing a patient but also when observing human behavior in everyday life.

The purpose of this handbook, originally published in 1984, was to provide a compreh- sive review of current clinical descriptions, research , and theories of psychopathology. Descriptive psychopathology is a ?eld that forms the foundation of clinical practice and research in clinical psychology, psychiatry, psychiatric social work, psychiatric nursing, and allied professions in mental health. Since the 1st edition, the editors have devised and updated a handbook to cover both general and speci?c topics in psychopathology that would be useful to researchers, practitioners, and graduate or other advanced students in the mental health and behavioral medicine professions. To implement this plan, we have very carefully chosen colleagues whom we respect for their expertise in particular ?elds. These authors include both clinicians and researchers who have outstanding national reputations, as well as more junior behavioral scientists and clinicians who, in our opinion, will achieve similar recognition in the future. The excellent chapters in this book lead us to believe that we have chosen wisely. We would like to express our appreciation to these authors for their outstanding contributions and cooperation.

Clinical psychology is a complex field that is often studied in a piecemeal way. Most books on the subject simply enumerate the many roles of the clinical psychologist, such as the most commonly used approaches to assessment and treatment. This book, however, provides a central, coherent theme -- the philosophy of science-- around which to study the subject matter.This book serves as an excellent reference to introductory clinical psychology. It is "accessible" to the reader with little background in clinical psychology, and it integrates the material around a central theme, the philosophy of science. Within this theme, the author integrates theoretical and applied materials, chronicles the historical development of the field, and presents empirical evidence. The book also address practical matters like therapy techniques and the training and employment of clinical psychologists. Topics include the history of clinical psychology, psychological treatment, and clinical assessment, amongst others.New clinical psychologists.
