  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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’.

  4. 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. 

  5. Overcoming Masculine Depression

    In Overcoming Masculine Depression, psychologists John Lynch and Christopher Kilmartin present a model that provides new ways of understanding men’s behaviors. This unique book does not portray men as victims, but seeks to increase awareness that a great deal of depression in men is misunderstood and quite oftentimes misdiagnosed. Many men "act out" their symptoms through anger, workaholism, and relationship conflict.  

  6. Elements of the Helping Process

    Elements of the Helping Process: A Guide for Clinicians takes a humanistic approach to guiding clinicians, emphasizing that professional practice involves a deliberate, conscious, and disciplined use of self with clients participating in a forum that is steady, safe, and consistent. As with the previous editions, it is directed personally to clinicians and students and contains illustrative case material and instructive excerpts from actual practice experience.  

  7. A New Understanding of ADHD in Children and Adults

    For over 100 years, ADHD has been seen as essentially a behavior disorder. Recent scientific research has developed a new paradigm which recognizes ADHD as a developmental disorder of the cognitive management system of the brain, its executive functions. This cutting-edge book pulls together key ideas of this new understanding of ADHD, explaining them and describing in understandable language scientific research that supports this new model. 

  8. Textbook - New Edition: Prescribing Mental Health Medication

    Already used by providers and training institutions throughout the world, the newly revised second edition of Prescribing Mental Health Medication is the text of choice for explaining the entire process of medication assessment, management and follow up. Instructors can request an exam copy.
     

  9. Anxiety, 3rd Edition

    Unique in combining an introduction to the subject with comprehensive coverage of the latest developments in research and practice, this textbook provides excellent breadth and depth of coverage for practicing and trainee clinical psychologists, and students of clinical psychology.

  10. Semantic Polarities and Psychopathologies in the Family

    The gap between psychotherapeutic practice and clinical theory is ever widening. Therapists still don’t know what role interpersonal relations play in the development of the most common psychopathologies. Valeria Ugazio bridges this gap by examining phobias, obsessive-compulsions, eating disorders, and depression in the context of the family, using an intersubjective approach to personality.
