Mental health professionals will learn how to integrate a neurocognitive perspective into their clinical research and practice of psychotherapy.

Mohlman, Deckersbach, and Weissman provide a splendid introduction to the neurocognitive perspective. They have selected top scholars to write thorough, thought-provoking overviews which are highly accessible and informative. Importantly, although this volume is organized around traditional diagnostic categories, it gently forces the reader to think in a transdisciplinary fashion. The resulting book brings us many steps closer to understanding fundamental processes that underlie individual differences in mental health symptoms and their effective treatment." - J. Gayle Beck, PhD, Lillian and Morrie Moss Chair of Excellence, Department of Psychology, University of Memphis "This remarkable volume is a bold and much-needed step toward integrating and bridging neuroscience and clinical psychology. Drs. Mohlman, Deckersbach, and Weissman assembled an outstanding group of experts to pave the way for the next generation of a neuroscience-informed clinical psychology. A prime example for a cross-disciplinary approach, this excellent book is a must-read for any scientifically-based mental health care professional." - Stefan G. Hofmann, PhD, Professor of Psychology; Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Boston University; Author, An Introduction to Modern CBT "This book provides a fascinating look into how discoveries in basic science can be used to inform and improve psychological treatments for a wide range of mental health issues. The research reported in this book is at the forefront of the most exciting work in clinical psychology and provides fresh new ideas about how to develop state-of-the-art psychological treatments." - Christopher G. Beevers, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Director of the Institute for Mental Health Research, University of Texas at Austin "This book bridges the gap between basic and clinical science and provides an important perspective for understanding the nature and treatment of psychiatric problems. The integrative neurocognitive viewpoint of this volume expertly examines theory and data in a way that offers an invaluable approach to mental health problems. From professional researchers and psychotherapists to students alike, the authors have done a superb job producing a text that will be indispensable for all students of mental health." - Rick Ingram, PhD, Director of Clinical Training, Department of Psychology, University of Kansas "The text is well-written and bursting with valuable findings and punctuated with references to not only the limits of current knowledge, but also future opportunities. As such, the text can be successfully added to the reading list of graduate courses in abnormal psychology and clinical practice to recognize the changing nature of a field and enhance the training of future mental health professionals. The clarity of its narrative makes the work even suitable to undergraduate courses and of interest to all readers who want to deepen their knowledge of forms of mental illness, and become aware of sensible practices of assessment and intervention. All in all, it is a good read." - Maura Pilotti, Ph.D., Ashford University for Metapsychology
