APA practice guidelines provide evidence-based treatment recommendations.
Two guidelines are now in press for publication as supplements to the
American Journal of Psychiatry. The guideline on obsessive-compulsive
disorder will be published in the June issue, while the revised guideline on
Alzheimer's disease and other dementias will be published in July.
Guideline watches describe evidence that is new since the publication of a
guideline. A new watch for the guideline on substance use disorders (second
edition) will be published in the spring issue of the APA journal
Focus and posted online at<www.psych.org/psych_pract/treatg/pg/prac_guide.cfm>.
Guideline drafts are made available for review in the Members Corner of
APA's Web site at<www.psych.org>.
Two drafts will be posted there shortly: one on panic disorder and the other
on HIV/AIDS; both are second editions.
