Everything you didn’t know about the effectiveness of evidence-based psychotherapy in the university setting Evidence-Based Psychotherapy Practice in College Mental Health presents an overview of EBP theory, research, and practice with a focus on the key issues in this growing field. The book features individual chapters on depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and alcohol abuse, and includes a special section on training in EBP through college counseling center based practicums and internships. Contributors address common concerns and issues about EBP and present recommendations for future practice and research in college counseling centers. College counseling center administrators and staff face the increasing challenge of providing services that address the unique stresses and dynamics facing students who often deal with multiple co-existing disorders as well as the normal developmental challenges of adjusting to college life. Evidence-Based Psychotherapy Practice in College Mental Health provides mental and behavioral health professionals with insight into the considerable contrast between theory, practice, and research in EBP as they evaluate its effectiveness on campus. The book looks at which evidence-based methods are currently used for clinical assessment and treatment, how evidence-based approaches apply to the therapy practiced on most campuses, and what the implications are for practice and research in university mental health settings. Evidence-Based Psychotherapy Practice in College Mental Health examines evidence-based treatment of: alcohol related issues (personalized feedback, attitudinal change techniques, skills-based approaches, single-session interventions) depression (length of psychotherapy, diagnostic purity, lack of adherence to specific theoretical models) anxiety disorders (effectiveness studies, efficacious studies, common factors, therapist-relationship factors) eating disorders (EBP research paradigms, populations studied, interventions, assessments and outcome measures, multicultural considerations) Evidence-Based Psychotherapy Practice in College Mental Health also offers suggestions for college counseling center clinical supervisors on how to incorporate EBP training while balancing common concerns about the applicability of EBP in working with college students. This unique book is an important resource for all practitioners working in university settings—from practicum students to seasoned professionals.

Mental health concerns are the most serious and prevalent health problems among students in higher education. Increasingly effective psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic treatments have facilitated matriculation for students with histories of anxiety, mood, personality, eating and substance abuse disorders. This phenomenon has been accompanied by a striking increase in the number of previously undiagnosed students requesting treatment. College and university mental health programs struggle to care for larger numbers of students, necessitating greater interdisciplinary collaboration in treatment, research, outreach, and educational services. This book fills an important gap in the literature and provides a comprehensive resource for nearly every aspect of college mental health. It includes a strong emphasis on the training and education of graduate and professional students for future work in this field. Chapters are devoted to the significant ethical and legal issues related to treatment and associated administrative and policy challenges. Scholarly chapters on the promise of community mental health and public health approaches are especially innovative. There is also a chapter on international issues in college mental health which will be helpful to those students studying abroad. Mental Health Care in the College Community is written by acknowledged experts from mental health, college and university administration, legal and educational disciplines, all with extensive administrative and clinical experience in higher education settings. This book is clearly written and well illustrated with abundant tables, charts, and figures. This text will become essential reading for college mental health clinicians, graduate students in the mental health disciplines (psychiatry, psychology, counselling, nursing, and social work), student affairs deans and their staff, and even presidents or provosts of universities and colleges.
