MANUALS FOR EMPIRICALLY VALIDATED TREATMENTS

A Project of the Task Force on Psychological Interventions

Division of Clinical Psychology, American Psychological Association

 

William C. Sanderson, PhD & Sheila Woody, PhD (Editors)

June 1995

 

Development of this resource

The Division 12 (Clinical Psychology) Task Force on Promotion and

Dissemination of Psychological Interventions issued a report in

October of 1993 establishing criteria for judging whether a

treatment may be considered to be empirically validated as well as

forming an initial list of well-established and probably

efficacious treatments. Please see that report (Task Force on

Promotion and Dissemination of Psychological Procedures, 1995) for

complete details. In order to facilitate the dissemination of

these treatments, the Task Force on Psychological Interventions has

now collected a list of manuals detailing the well-established

treatments. (One exception will be noted by careful readers:

Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Bulimia was inadvertently omitted

from the initial Task Force list but is included in this resource.)

Of course, this list will be updated as new treatments are

empirically evaluated. In addition, several treatments that are in

fact empirically validated but were overlooked in the initial

report will be added to the updated version. We want to emphasize

that this list is inclusive, not exclusive.

In order to compile this resource listing of manuals, we wrote to

leading investigators in the respective areas of treatment

research, particularly those whose work formed the basis for

judging a particular treatment to be efficacious. These

investigators provided citations for those published manuals. Many

of them offered to provide copies of unpublished manuals to other

clinicians, although requests must be accompanied by a check to

cover the costs of photocopying and postage.

What qualifies as a manual? In building this resource, we

attempted to locate materials that provide sufficient detail to

allow a trained clinician to replicate the treatment. Of course,

no treatment manual is adequate in the absence of solid theoretical

grounding and supervised training in the particular approach.

Recognizing this, we have also included, when available,

information about training in these approaches. We specifically

excluded conference workshops as a training resource, because these

workshops typically do not offer the opportunity for supervised

experience.

Comments and feedback

This listing is intended as a growing resource for researchers and

clinicians. We welcome your feedback on the materials listed here,

as well as your suggestions for materials we have overlooked.
