Andrew C. Page, Werner G. K. Stritzke - Clinical Psychology for Trainees:Foundations of Science-Informed Practice.This book describes the practice of clinical psychology with specialemphasis on providing trainee therapists with the skills and strategies to achieve the core competencies requiredfor a science-informed clinical practice. It will support the reader in making the transition from the lecturetheater to the consulting room. The approach incorporates a contemporary perspective on the multiple roles ofclinical psychologists within a competitive healthcare market, where professional psychologists not only need tobe accountable for their outcomes and efficient in achieving them, but also need to be conscious of the social andpolitical context in which psychology is practiced. Chapters are organized around the acquisition of keycompetencies and linked within an evidence-based, science-informed framework. Case studies, handouts, graphics andworksheets are employed to encourage the implementation of the skills described. This book should be read by allthose enrolled in, or contemplating, postgraduate studies in clinical psychology.
