The CBT Handbook: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy


By (author): Catherine Evans-Jones

This is a comprehensive resource of photocopiable worksheets to aid therapeutic intervention. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) aims to help people overcome their emotional difficulties through helping them identify and change their thoughts and behaviour. CBT has been evaluated for a wide range of presenting problems and evidence of its efficacy found for depression, panic, agoraphobia, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), specific phobia, social phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This eminently practical book provides more than 80 A4 photocopiable worksheets for cognitive behavioural therapists to use with clients. As well as covering the fundamental techniques of CBT, it supplies worksheets specific to presenting problems, such as OCD, panic and worry. Worksheets are essential tools in CBT. They record events and patterns, provide new information, and suggest new ways of thinking and acting. When and how to use a worksheet is determined by a number of factors: the formulation, the stage in therapy, the current focus of treatment, the reading and writing ability of the client and the wishes of the client. The use of worksheets in CBT is an ongoing learning process for both therapists and clients. This is a fantastic resource for all clinicians working within the cognitive behavioural model.

Computational Models of Brain and Behavior


A comprehensive Introduction to the world of brain and behavior computational models

This book provides a broad collection of articles covering different aspects of computational modeling efforts in psychology and neuroscience. Specifically, it discusses models that span different brain regions (hippocampus, amygdala, basal ganglia, visual cortex), different species (humans, rats, fruit flies), and different modeling methods (neural network, Bayesian, reinforcement learning, data fitting, and Hodgkin-Huxley models, among others).

Computational Models of Brain and Behavior is divided into four sections: (a) Models of brain disorders; (b) Neural models of behavioral processes; (c) Models of neural processes, brain regions and neurotransmitters, and (d) Neural modeling approaches. It provides in-depth coverage of models of psychiatric disorders, including depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), schizophrenia, and dyslexia; models of neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and epilepsy; early sensory and perceptual processes; models of olfaction; higher/systems level models and low-level models; Pavlovian and instrumental conditioning; linking information theory to neurobiology; and more.

  • Covers computational approximations to intellectual disability in down syndrome
  • Discusses computational models of pharmacological and immunological treatment in Alzheimer’s disease
  • Examines neural circuit models of serotonergic system (from microcircuits to cognition)
  • Educates on information theory, memory, prediction, and timing in associative learning 

Computational Models of Brain and Behavior is written for advanced undergraduate, Master’s and PhD-level students—as well as researchers involved in computational neuroscience modeling research.

Social and Behavioral Science for Health Professionals


By (author): Brian P. Hinote, Jason Adam Wasserman

Social and Behavioral Science for Health Professionals examines various social and behavioral factors that affect health and illness, with a particular focus on how these phenomena inform clinical practice. The book introduces interdisciplinary insights from fields like sociology, psychology, and epidemiology to elucidate important and often problematic features of patient care routinely confronting physicians, nurses, and other allied health practitioners. Each chapter provides clear learning objectives and is organized around core concepts to facilitate clinicians’ abilities to think in new and expanded ways about health and illness, as well as patient and professional interactions. The content explores the implications of a shifting epidemiological landscape; the critical roles of social factors as fundamental causes of health and disease; health disparities; the medicalization process and resulting changes in diagnostic patterns and expectations of practitioners; understandings of the illness experience of patients; interpersonal and interprofessional collaboration; clinical bioethics and the social psychology of ethical decision-making; and the significance of health system design and health policy. As a result, the book represents an important resource for improving patient care, particularly at a time when health is more intricately linked to social and behavioral conditions than ever before.

Special Features of Social and Behavioral Science for Health Professionals:

  • Presents a genuinely interdisciplinary approach to various social and behavioral aspects of health.
  • Emphasizes the clinical implications of various social and behavioral science insights for health, illness, and patient care.
  • Addresses multiple dimensions of health and disease, from social conditions to disease epidemiology to the social psychology of illness experience and interpersonal communication.
  • Each chapter provides clear learning objectives that emphasize critical content.
  • Responds to the changing expectations in medical, nursing, and allied health education, which increasingly require training in the social and behavioral aspects of health and illness.
  • The Instructor’s Manual includes a detailed grid that maps each chapter to the core competencies of various health care fields including medicine, nursing, physician assistant, dentistry, and more. A sample course syllabus is also included.

Specific health professions included in the core competencies grid are:

    • LCME (allopathic medicine)
    • AAMC (allopathic medicine)
    • AACOM (osteopathic medicine)
    • ADEA (dentistry)
    • CODA (dentistry)
    • ARC-PA (physician assistants)
    • AACN (nursing)
    • ACPE (pharmacy)
    • CCE (chiropractic)
  • Focusky and PowerPoint® presentations are available for each chapter. Focusky is a software package that allows instructors to provide dynamic presentations in class, and the authors have provided one presentation for each chapter.

    The Myth of the ADHD Child, Revised Edition: 101 Ways to Improve Your Child’s Behavior and Attention Span Without Drugs, Labels, or Coercion


    By (author): Thomas Armstrong

    A fully revised and updated edition of the groundbreaking book on tackling the root causes of children’s attention and behavior problems rather than masking the symptoms with medication.

    More than twenty years after Dr. Thomas Armstrong’s Myth of the A.D.D. Child first published, he presents much needed updates and insights in this substantially revised edition. When The Myth of the A.D.D. Child was first published in 1995, Dr. Thomas Armstrong made the controversial argument that many behaviors labeled as ADD or ADHD are simply a child’s active response to complex social, emotional, and educational influences. In this fully revised and updated edition, Dr. Armstrong shows readers how to address the underlying causes of a child’s attention and behavior problems in order to help their children implement positive changes in their lives.
         The rate of ADHD diagnosis has increased sharply, along with the prescription of medications to treat it. Now needed more than ever, this book includes fifty-one new non-drug strategies to help children overcome attention and behavior problems, as well as updates to the original fifty proven strategies.

    Five Constraints on Predicting Behavior (MIT Press)


    By (author): Jerome Kagan

    A distinguished psychologist considers five conditions that constrain inferences about the relation between brain activity and psychological processes.

    Scientists were unable to study the relation of brain to mind until the invention of technologies that measured the brain activity accompanying psychological processes. Yet even with these new tools, conclusions are tentative or simply wrong. In this book, the distinguished psychologist Jerome Kagan describes five conditions that place serious constraints on the ability to predict mental or behavioral outcomes based on brain data: the setting in which evidence is gathered, the expectations of the subject, the source of the evidence that supports the conclusion, the absence of studies that examine patterns of causes with patterns of measures, and the habit of borrowing terms from psychology.

    Kagan describes the important of context, and how the experimental setting — including the room, the procedure, and the species, age, and sex of both subject and examiner — can influence the conclusions. He explains how subject expectations affect all brain measures; considers why brain and psychological data often yield different conclusions; argues for relations between patterns of causes and outcomes rather than correlating single variables; and criticizes the borrowing of psychological terms to describe brain evidence. Brain sites cannot be in a state of “fear.”

    A deeper understanding of the brain’s contributions to behavior, Kagan argues, requires investigators to acknowledge these five constraints in the design or interpretation of an experiment.
