Steven Pfeiffer, author of the upcoming book Serving the Gifted featured on Psychology Today in an article about his research on how to define and identify ‘giftedness.’
Serving the Gifted is designed specifically for school psychologists and school counselors, and is intended to serve as a practical and easy-to-use resource for working with gifted students, their teachers, and their parents and families.
New Directions in Sex Therapy: Innovations and Alternatives focuses on cutting-edge, therapy paradigms as alternatives to conventional clinical strategies. With each passing year, the treatment of sexual problems seems to emphasize more medical and pharmacological interventions. There is correspondingly less interest in the experiences of the individuals or couples involved. This book expands the definition of our field.
This book is intended for anyone who deals with sexual issues and concerns in therapy–clinicians of every kind, novices and advanced practitioners–rather than only those who define themselves as sex therapists.
"Elsaesser has consistently returned to the subject of cinephilia and its importance as a positive and negative touchstone for both film studies and film-making itself. This preoccupation also allows Elsaesser to evocatively discuss his own emergence as a film scholar and trace the patterns of his cinematic obsession across the geographies of, in his case, Germany, England, and France. ... The Persistence of Hollywood provides an exemplary account of the continued importance of studying Hollywood, while also betraying a deep-seated passion for the form."
