About this product
- DescriptionThe Psychology Industry Under a Microscope! explores why psychology treatment efficacy rates are so poor, why psychological testing is unreliable, and why diagsis is uncertain. He also explores the weaknesses inherent in 115 APA accredited doctoral programs and what changes may help improve the effectiveness of the psychology clinician. He introduces a cognitive/behavioral diagstic system that is far more cohesive and sensible than the piecemeal and confusing system currently in place. This book introduces an easy to understand and invative visual model that integrates all of clinical psychology and far surpasses any previous attempts at developing models. The author also challenges the recent resurgence of the disease model for diagsis as well as the politics and ecomics that lie behind its current popularity. The reader may feel challenged by this book but will find it difficult to refute its content. This thought-provoking book is essential for any clinician or teacher.
