Review of <em>Practice-Based Research: A Guide for Clinicians</em>.

Reviews the book, Practice-Based Research: A Guide for Clinicians edited by R. Trent Codd III. As illuminated in this new book, clinicians are at the forefront of mental health care. They have the proverbial front row view of treatment implementation. Therefore, clinicians are ideally suited, compared with academic researchers, to conduct research that yields a quick and meaningful impact on the medical field. Therefore, clinicians conducting practice-based research are well situated to identify and answer questions of practical importance and direct impact on the medical field. This five-chapter, 13-article guidebook brings to light that the field of mental health faces a scientist-practitioner gap. Hopefully, this book achieves its intention: to improve the caliber of treatments delivered and research conducted, thereby helping the ultimate recipients of both—the patients.
