From the Back Cover:

This book provides a comprehensive overview of complementary and alternative therapy treatments in mental health, with information on their effectiveness and safety for specific patient populations and for use in treating specific disorders. Twenty-four different contributors in psychology and medicine document research and the current practice in treating a number of disorders, including depression, anxiety, ADHD, and addictions.

Modalities covered are both new and ancient, including acupuncture, EMDR, process work, nutritional medicine, herbal medicine, meditation, biofeedback, essential fatty acids, and others.

Each chapter begins with a description of a therapy, followed by discussions of safety and of the compatibility or conflict of the therapy with conventional treatments. Scientific documentation of the therapy's efficacy is also covered, along with a discussion of the disorders for which the treatment is best used.
