  1. Developmental Neuropsychology

    Developmental Neuropsychology draws upon the research of Alexander Luria and Lev Vygotsky to present a comprehensive study of developmental neuropsychology from a Russian, and Western perspective. Janna Glozman offers a fresh and accessible analysis of Luria and Vygotsky’s collaboration, which greatly influenced the field of neuropsychology as we know it today.

  2. Water and Post-Conflict Peacebuilding

    Edited by Erika Weinthal, Jessica J. Troell and Mikiyasu Nakayama

    As a basic human need, the provision of safe water is among the highest priorities of government and humanitarian interventions during post-conflict recovery and peacebuilding. In the aftermath of war, water, sanitation, and infrastructure play a critical role in the recovery of livelihoods and economic development. Moreover, shared waters have great potential for interstate cooperation, assisting to rebuild trust following conflict and to prevent a return to conflict. This volume draws on studies from around the world to create a framework for understanding how water resources decisions and activities can facilitate or undermine peacebuilding in a post-conflict setting.

  3. What We See and What We Say

    Image-based research methods, such as arts-based research, can fill the absence of the voice of impoverished, under-privileged populations. In What We See and What We Say, Ephrat Huss argues that images are deep and universally psycho-neurological constructs through which people process their experiences. The theoretical model demonstrated in this book demonstrates that images can be used to enable three different levels of communication: with self, with others similar to oneself, and with others who differ in terms of culture and power.

  4. Psychology and Politics: A Social Identity Perspective

    What makes us divide the world into ‘us’ and ‘them’? How can we exert social influence over others? When does a peaceful protest turn into a riot? Why are some politicians heroes one day and villains the next? Where do we find the resources to resist authoritarian regimes?

  6. Personality Assessment in Depth

    Comprised of five unique and extended case studies, Personality Assessment in Depth examines contemporary clinical problems that are familiar to clinicians, but have not been explored extensively in the personality assessment field. Each case study demonstrates the test protocols of the Rorschach test, Thematic Apperception Test, MMPI or MCMI, and Human Figure Drawings. Important clinical questions and areas of theoretical concern are examined, including differential diagnosis of disorders of affect and personality in light of contemporary viewpoints about these disturbances, personality and adaptation accompanying neuropsychological deficit, and stages of development, including differentiating these from personality characteristics viewed longitudinally, the latter demonstrated by a noteworthy comparison of two evaluations of the same patient, first as a 15-year-old adolescent and then as a 25-year-old adult.

  7. Creative Activities for Group Therapy

    Leading a group is a delicate balancing act of tasks and dynamic group and individual factors, and the group leader’s expertise and skill are fundamental to maintaining this balance. However, no matter how competent and well-prepared the group leader is, there can be situations that present challenges that are not easily addressed, defy conventional interventions, or call for a different approach. The material presented in this book is intended to give group leaders evidence-based creative and inspirational tools, techniques, intervention strategies, and the like to address these dilemmas and difficult situations.

  8. Helping Beyond the 50 Minute Hour

    This book is intended as an inspiration for practicing psychotherapists and counselors, as well as students, to become actively involved in a meaningful effort. The authors have searched far and wide to identify practitioners representing different disciplines, helping professions, geographic regions, and social action projects, all of whom have been involved in social justice efforts for some time, whether in their own communities or in far-flung regions of the world. Each of them has an amazing story to tell that reveals the challenges they’ve faced, the incredible satisfactions they’ve experienced, and what lessons they’ve learned along the way. Each story represents a gem of wisdom, revealing both questions of faith, as well as of sustained action. The authors have been encouraged to dig deeply in order to talk about the honest realities of their work. After reading their stories, you will be ready to pick a cause that speaks to you and begin your own work.

  10. Bioenergy Production by Anaerobic Digestion

    Edited by Nicholas E. Korres, Padraig O'Kiely, John A.H. Benzie and Jonathan S. West

    Interest in anaerobic digestions, the process of energy production through production of biogas, has increased rapidly in recent years. This book is one of the first to provide a broad introduction to anaerobic digestion and its potential as a viable means to turn agricultural crops or crop residues, animal and other organic waste, into biomethane.
