Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(1), 33–35. Reviews the book, Klinische Psychologie, Vol. 8 (2nd half) of Handbuch det Psychologie edited by Ludwig J. Pongratz (1978). This second half-volume begins with an outline of methods and problems in psychotherapy research. It is a reference book of unique value that demonstrates the emergence and advances of clinical psychology in Germany. The book gives little space to the traditional psychological tests and psychometric techniques. It displays new and promising therapeutic approaches in school, community, and work relationships, as well as in social therapy applied in correctional institutions and with delinquents. This review is intended to provide the reader with information about the organization of the book and the wide scope of topics. There are, however, many outstanding chapters in the book which merit greater in-depth review, particularly the chapters on problems and methods in psychotherapy research.
