  1. Psychodynamic Art Therapy Practice with People on the Autistic Spectrum

    Psychodynamic Art Therapy Practice with People on the Autistic Spectrum offers a valuable counterbalance to the phenomenological, cognitive and behavioural theories that currently prevail in the wider field of practice and research. The result of a decade of work by a group of highly experienced art therapists, this book presents eight frank and compelling accounts of art therapy with either adults or children with autism, supported by a discussion of the relevant theory.

  2. A Guide to Psychological Understanding of People with Learning Disabilities

    Who are the people we describe as having learning or intellectual disability? Many clinical psychologists working in a mental health setting are now encountering people with learning disabilities, in some cases for the first time. This book provides the background information and understanding required to provide a basis for a truly inclusive and effective service for people with learning disability.

  3. Insanity and Divinity

    Covering the interrelation of psychosis and spirituality from a number of angles, Insanity and Divinity will generate dialog and discussion, aid critical reflection and stimulate creative approaches to clinical work for those interested in the connections between religious studies, psychoanalysis, anthropology and hagiography.

  4. Introduction to Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Technique: 2nd Edition

    Introduction to Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Technique is a revised edition of the popular technical guide to the conduct of psychodynamic psychotherapy written by Sarah Fels Usher, published in 1993. In her thoroughly updated book, the author takes the student from the very beginning through to the end of the processes involved in using psychodynamic psychotherapy as a method of understanding and treating patients. 

  5. Psychosis and Emotion

    There is increasing recognition that emotional distress plays a significant part in the onset of psychosis, the experience of psychosis itself and in the unfolding of recovery that follows. This book brings together leading international experts to explore the role of emotion and emotion regulation in the development and recovery from psychosis.

  6. Formulation in Psychology and Psychotherapy, Second Edition

    The first edition of Formulation in Psychology and Psychotherapy caught the wave of growing interest in formulation in a clinical context. This completely updated and revised edition summarises recent practice, research, developments and debates while retaining the features that made the first a leading text in the field. It contains new chapters on personal construct formulation, formulation in health settings, and the innovative practice of using formulation in teams.

  7. Surviving, Existing, or Living

    For professionals working with people who experience severe psychosis, increasing empirical evidence for the benefits of psychotherapy for psychosis has been especially welcome. Given the limitations of medication-only approaches and the need for an expanded perspective, including for those diagnosed with schizophrenia, Surviving, Existing, or Living takes a fresh look at severe psychosis, offering a heuristic model for understanding psychosis along a continuum of severity, from the extreme experience of acutely impairing psychosis to a more enriched life experience.

  8. Cognitive Behavioural Approaches to the Understanding and Treatment of Dissociation

    The study of dissociation is relevant to anyone undertaking research or treatment of mental health problems. Cognitive Behavioural Approaches to the Understanding and Treatment of Dissociation uses a cognitive approach to de-mystify the processes involved in linking traumatic incidents to their effects.

  9. Models of Madness, Second Edition

    This second edition of Models of Madness challenges the simplistic, pessimistic and oftentimes damaging theories and treatments of the ‘medical model’ of madness. Psychiatric diagnoses and medications are based on the false premise that human misery and distress are caused by chemical imbalances and genetic predispositions, and ignore the social causes of psychosis and what psychiatrists call ‘schizophrenia’.

  10. Progressive Counting Within a Phase Model of Trauma-Informed Treatment

    Clinicians recognize trauma and loss as a prominent source of clients' problems. Progressive counting is a significant advance in trauma treatment because it is about as efficient, effective, and well-tolerated as EMDR while being far simpler for therapists to master and do well. PC's value has already been supported by two open trials and a controlled study. Are you ready to provide therapy that routinely affects profound healing and lasting change? This book will show you how.
