This volume constitutes the first solidly research grounded guide for practitioners wending their way through the new maze of self-help approaches.
The Handbook of Self-Help Therapies summarizes the current state of our knowledge about what works and what does not, disorder by disorder and modality by modality.
Among the covered topics are:
dieting and weight loss.
Comprehensive in its scope, this systematic, objective assessment of self-help treatments will be invaluable for practitioners, researchers and students in counseling psychology, psychiatry and social work, health psychology, and behavioral medicine.

"Faith is taking the first step, even when
you don't see the whole staircase."
~ Martin Luther King Jr.
"I expect to pass through this world but once.
Any good thing, therefore, that I can do or any kindness
I can show to any fellow human being, let me do it now.
Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again."
~ Stephen Grellet
"Faith and Fear Share The Same Definition.
Believing that what you cannot see will surely come to pass.
Faith Attracts The Positive while fear attracts the negative."
