'This paperback book provides a useful overview of most of the skills that clinical psychologists need to develop throughout their training … One of the major strengths of the book is that it outlines clinical skills with clarity (aided by useful case examples) yet it constantly reminds the reader of the wider empirical framework that is required. … this book should provide an invaluable resource for all clinical psychology trainees, especially those early in training, and also for those considering or attempting to embark on a career in clinical psychology.'
