From the reviews:
"Handbook of Homework Assignments in Psychotherapy presents multiple approaches to the integration of homework into therapy, including perspectives from nine theoretical orientations plus psychotherapy integration, as well as research and practical case examples. This inclusiveness is to be commended, as it lends to the overall strength and contributions of the work. ... solid reference work with a broad perspective on homework that will likely become an essential component in the personal libraries of clinicians from all levels of experience as well as those of researchers." (Michele A. Schottenbauer, PsycCritiques, Vol. 52 (40), 2007)
"The Handbook of Homework Assignments in Psychotherapy: Research, Practice, and Prevention ... provides readers with an extensive overview of how clinicians of various orientations integrate homework assignments into their clinical work with various popultions. ... All chapters are well-organized, succinct, and written by experts in their respective fields. This book is geared towards clinicians working with adult populations. ... This would be an excellent book for beginning clinicians or graduate students who are seeking an overview of various treatment approaches and clinical disorders." (Jeanne M. Duax, Journal of Contemporary Psychotherapy, Vol. 37, 2007)
"The book operationally defines 'homework' in various kinds of therapy ... . is aimed at practitioners and researchers with all ranges of experience. ... Readers looking for an 'academic' perspective on homework, a comparison of different approaches to between-session work, and inspiration in working with different populations will find a great deal here. ... It really does represent a 'first to market' work that will be foundational for others interested in the theory and practise of psychotherapy homework, and certainly makes a very unique contribution."
