Practitioners of primary care, by virtue of its very nature, are often responsible for encouraging and/or arranging for patients with mental illness to seek psychological treatment. Those who provide primary care should therefore be familiar with the validity and efficacy of the treatment regimens that they recommend to their patients. Science and Pseudoscience in Clinical Psychology is the “first major volume devoted exclusively to distinguishing scientifically unsupported from scientifically supported practices in modern clinical psychology” (p. xix).​
