This unique and timely book may avert the advent of the Dark Ages into which the discipline of psychotherapy seems to be heading. By clearly articulating the fundamental differences between 'science' and 'pseudoscience', it forewarns that anecdotes are not evidence, and demonstrates how to separate fact from conjecture. I cannot think of anyone who would not benefit from a thorough perusal of its contents, but it is particularly essential reading for those conducting any form of counseling or psychotherapy. - Arnold A. Lazarus, Rutgers University


This book offers a rigorous examination of a variety of therapeutic, assessment, and diagnostic techniques in clinical psychology, focusing on practices that are popular and influential but lack a solid grounding in empirical research. Featuring chapters from leading clinical researchers, the text helps professionals and students evaluate the merits of novel and controversial techniques and differentiate between those that can stand up to scientific scrutiny and those that cannot. Reviewed are widely used therapies for alcoholism, infantile autism, and ADHD; the use of EMDR in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder; herbal remedies for depression and anxiety; suggestive techniques for memory recovery; and self-help models. Other topics covered include issues surrounding psychological expert testimony, the uses and abuses of projective assessment techniques, and unanswered questions about dissociative identity disorder. Offering a balanced, constructive review of available research, each accessibly written chapter concludes with a glossary of key terms. Timothy Anderson, Ohio University, Athens, OH.

Format: Taschenbuch
Mit diesen deutlichen Worten beschreibt Carol Tavris in ihrem Vorwort - "The Widening Scientist-Practitioner Gap: A View from the Bridge" - das Rezept, nach dem ein beträchtlicher Teil der Psychotherapeuten arbeitet.

Dass gerade Tavris dieses - sehr intelligente, sehr gut informierte, sehr kritische und sehr wissenschaftsorientierte - Vorwort schreiben durfte, war eine vorzügliche Idee der drei Herausgeber.

Dr. Tavris verdanken wir - unter anderem - das lesenswerte Buch
Psychobabble and Biobunk: Using Psychology to Think Critically about Issues in the News und das nicht minder gute, zusammen mit E. Aronson verfasste Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions, and Hurtful Acts, in dem die wichtige und unheilvolle Rolle von Selbstrechtfertigungen dargestellt und untersucht wird.

Das Buch behandelt fünf Kontroversen zwischen angemaßter und tatsächlicher Wissenschaft:

I. Kontroversen in Bezug auf Diagnosen

II. Generelle Kontroversen in der Psychotherapie

III. Kontroversen bezüglich der Behandlung erwachsenenspezifischer Störungen

IV. Kontroversen bezüglich der Behandlung kinderspezifischer Störungen

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well researched, balanced, and provocative 1. Februar 2003
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This edited volume contains chapters which provide critical analysis of a variety of important subjects in clinical psychology. Lillienfeld et al take a hard look at general issues such as diagnosis and treatment as well as specific issues including New Age treatments for psychological disorders and tests and personality measures. It also examines other subjects such as controversial interventions for ADHD, trauma and autism. The book will spark a great deal of argument and some outrage, since there are a lot of oxen and sacred cows being gored therein. But it is long past time that the yawning chasm between science and clinical practice was addressed, and this volume does an admirable job. I recommend this book to all thoughtful clinicans, as well as general readers with an interest in clinical psychology.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Well written, but may be missing something. 28. Dezember 2006
Von Bookworm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As a psychologist who is aware of some of the questionable research and clinical practices in psychology I read this book with interest. Many of the chapters were interesting and the criticisms valid. I was disappointed, however, that a book that claims to debunk pseudoscience seemed to have a major blindspot. For example Waschbusch and Hill's chapter examines treatments for ADHD without reference to the controversy that exists about the validity of ADHD as a neurobiological syndrome. There is debate about the unscientific manner in which groups of nonspecifc behaviours are named as syndromes, in the absence of any physical evidence. Discussing treatments for these "disorders" without mentioning this at all seems a glaring oversight in a book that devotes so much attention to issues of diagnosis and assessment and claims to expose pseudosicence. It hardly takes courage or insight to criticise the fringe elements, but what about blatant pseudoscientific practices carried out by mainstream psychologists?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Clarity 6. November 2006
Von A. Montgomery - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Although largely aware of the plethora of pseudoscientific nonsence that besets the field of mental health, it is very refreshing to have this collation of information brought together in one volume. As a clinical psycholgist I am confronted daily by people who have been referred to purveyors of unscientific, and often damaging, "interventions". All too frequently, these people have been referred to such snake-oil sellers by mental health professionals - psychologists, psychaitrists, medical doctors etc. This book, and hopefully further editions of it, should be compulsory reading for everyone seeking to work in the mental health and forensic fields. Only by truly embracing scientific methodology and an unremitting scepticism can we hope to move forward in understanding mental health and criminal problems. Our patients, their families, and the public deserve no less.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read 15. März 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I am finishing my Ph.D. in psychology this year, and this is a definate read for anyone in the field, espececially those who are considering persuing a career in psych. This book has confimed my long-standing fears as a graduate student: That there is much non-science in the field of psych and the profession is openly hostile to those that say so, while at the same time donning the semantically garb of "scientist". The truth is there is very little science in psych these days, and it is psychology's "dirty little secret".

4.0 von 5 Sternen WHAT THIS BOOK IS, and is not 1. Juni 2011
Von Linda Filkins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Having just finished this book, and based on some of the reader reviews Ive seen here, I feel the need to inject this little comment. This book is a wonderful, long-teaching essay in the practice and importance of critical thinking. This book is NOT a "debunking" of the need for treatment of several widely diagnosed diseases, discussed in the book (ADHD,Autism or addiction/substance abuse) or a denial of the need for effective treatments for these diorders. The widespread misapplication or non application of sound practice in diagnoses, and treatments of arguably questionable effectivenss are the targets of Lilienfelds critical thinking.Many people who read this book should first become familliar with the "10 commandments" of critical thinking that Lillienfeld begins his courses with.
