Praise for "Critical Thinking in Clinical Practice," Third EditionEileen Gambrill is unparalleled in her ability to describe common flaws and biases in clinical decision making. The result in this revised edition is a steadfast call for change that also acknowledges the demands of practice. A must-read for clinicians and researchers alike.--Elizabeth K. Anthony, PhD, Assistant Professor, School of Social Work, Arizona State UniversityThis "Third Edition" builds upon the impressive strengths of Gambrill's prior treatments of the topic to support the notion that critical thinking is a "teachable skill" and one essential for contemporary practice in the human services. This book should be the default authority on the topic of critical thinking for human service professionals and would be an excellent textbook.--Bruce A. Thyer, PhD, LCSW, Professor and former Dean, Florida State University College of Social WorkI was skeptical about how "Critical Thinking in Clinical Practice" could be improved, but Eileen Gambrill has succeeded Her articulation of critical thinking skills for clinical decisions ultimately will benefit the people we serve.--Joanne Yaffe, PhD, ACSW, Associate Professor of Social Work and Adjunct Associate Professor of Psychiatry, University of UtahA balanced and illustrative guide to incorporating critical-thinking values, knowledge, and skills into clinical education and practiceNow in a third edition, "Critical Thinking in Clinical Practice" is written for helping professionals who want to think more clearly about the decisions they make and the context in which they make them.
