The breadth, clarity, and usefulness of the coverage is first rate." -Alan Whitlock, University of IdahoClinical Psychology: Science, Practice, and Culture distinguishes itself from other core texts for undergraduate clinical psychology courses through the evenhanded presentation of multiple clinical perspectives and emphasis on multicultural issues.
