This important volume challenges the as As a mental health clinician, you know that every client is unique, and a client’s symptoms are the result of a complex combination of psychological, environmental, genetic, and neural factors.

    I decide to trust my gut feeling and give up on this halfway. The language is impossibly obtuse, that I realistically don't see myself finishing it any time soon. The core ideas listed in its table of contents looked interesting, and as someone who likes his counselling/clinical psychology sprinkled with discussions on philosophy of science, this definitely looked very promising. But god I know I am going to have to endure great pain as I see jargon after jargon from vastly different paradigms g I decide to trust my gut feeling and give up on this halfway. The language is impossibly obtuse, that I realistically don't see myself finishing it any time soon. The core ideas listed in its table of contents looked interesting, and as someone who likes his counselling/clinical psychology sprinkled with discussions on philosophy of science, this definitely looked very promising. But god I know I am going to have to endure great pain as I see jargon after jargon from vastly different paradigms get used at every sentence. As far as I have read I saw close to nothing to inform a hands-on therapist as well. I honestly do not dislike Hayes. I am giving this at least a two star because I feel assured Hayes does not make baseless claims, and this book will at the very least serve as a good anchor point for discussions in this area. I have a hunch that this will stay cutting edge for years to come. I can only see this book working as a textbook for a very specific class dedicated to the idea of 'Beyond DSM', because this is close to being absolutely unreadable otherwise. I dont see how the average academic trying to wrap their head around the controversies of the DSM (whether as an educator or researcher) can leverage this book. The average therapist would probably not last a few sentences. Maybe I will return when I run out of reading materials or get a dedicated reading group for this. But this book definitely isn't doing it for me now.
