Cognitive Behavior Therapy of DSM-5 Personality Disorders: Assessment, Case Conceptualization, and Treatment


Features: Routledge
By (author): Len Sperry, Jon Sperry

The first edition of Cognitive Behavior Therapy of DSM-IV Personality Disorders broke new ground. It differed from other CBT books by offering brief but thorough user-friendly resources for clinicians and students in planning and implementing effective treatments. The third edition of this classic text continues this tradition by providing practitioners?both practicing clinicians and those in training?a hands-on manual of highly effective, evidence-based cognitive and behavioral interventions for these challenging disorders.

The beginning chapters briefly describe the changes between the DSM-IV-TR and DSM-5 and emphasize the best of the recent evidence-based CBT assessment and treatment strategies applicable to personality disorders. The book then guides clinicians in each step of the treatment process–from assessment to case conceptualization to selection and implementation of intervention. Case material is used to illustrate this process with the most recent developments from Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, Schema Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Analysis System of Psychotherapy, Mindfulness-based therapies, and Dialectic Behavior Therapy.

Chemical and Physical Behavior of Human Hair


By (author): Clarence R. Robbins

Human hair is the subject of a remarkably wide range of scientific investigations.  Its chemical and physical properties are of importance to the cosmetics industry, forensic scientists and to biomedical researchers.  The fifth edition of this book confirms its position as the definitive monograph on the subject.  Previous editions were recognized as “concise and thorough” (Journal of the American Chemical Society), “an invaluable resource” (Canadian Forensic Science Society Journal), and “highly recommended” (Textile Research Journal).  Chemical and Physical Behavior of Human Hair is a teaching guide and reference volume for cosmetic chemists and other scientists in the hair products industry, academic researchers studying hair and hair growth, textile scientists and forensic specialists.
Features of the Fifth Edition:
 Recent advances in the classification and characterization of the different proteins and genes in IF and keratin associated proteins in human hair are described. 
 The mechanism and incidence of hair growth and loss and hair density vs. age of males & females are described for Asians, Caucasians and Africans in different scalp regions. 
 Details of hair surface lipids and cuticle membranes provide a better understanding of the surface and organization of the CMC and its involvement in stress strain is presented. 
 Recent evidence demonstrates a more bilateral structure in curly hair and a more concentric arrangement of different cortical proteins in straighter hair. 
 SNPs involved in hair form (curl and coarseness) and pigmentation and genes in alopecia and hair abnormalities are described.
 The latest biosynthetic scheme for hair pigments and structures for these and the different response of red versus brown-black pigments to photodegradation is described.
A new method for curvature on 2,400 persons from different countries and groups is used to assign curvature throughout this book. 
Additional data for age and effects on diameter, ellipticity, elastic modulus, break stress and other parameters are presented with much larger data sets featuring statistical analyses.
Hair conditioning, strength, breakage, split ends, flyaway, shine, combing ease, body, style retention, manageability and feel parameters are defined and described.
A new section of different life stages by age groups considering collective and individual changes in hair fiber properties with age and how these affect assembly properties.

Handbook of Mindfulness: Culture, Context, and Social Engagement (Mindfulness in Behavioral Health)


This handbook explores mindfulness philosophy and practice as it functions in today’s socioeconomic, cultural, and political landscape. Chapters discuss the many ways in which classic concepts and practices of mindfulness clash, converge, and influence modern theories and methods, and vice versa. Experts across many disciplines address the secularization and commercialization of Buddhist concepts, the medicalizing of mindfulness in therapies, and progressive uses of mindfulness in education. The book addresses the rise of the, “mindfulness movement”, and the core concerns behind the critiques of the growing popularity of mindfulness. It covers a range of dichotomies, such as traditional versus modern, religious versus secular, and commodification versus critical thought and probes beyond the East/West binary to larger questions of economics, philosophy, ethics, and, ultimately, meaning.

Featured topics include:
  • A compilation of Buddhist meditative practices.
  • Selling mindfulness and the marketing of mindful products.
  • A meta-critique of mindfulness critiques – from McMindfulness to critical mindfulness
  • Mindfulness-based interventions in clinical psychology and neuroscience.
  • Corporate mindfulness and usage in the workplace.
  • Community-engaged mindfulness and its role in social justice.
The Handbook of Mindfulness is a must-have resource for clinical psychologists, complementary and alternative medicine professionals/practitioners, neuroscientists, and educational and business/management leaders and policymakers as well as related mental health, medical, and educational professionals/practitioners.

Overcoming Alcohol Use Problems: A Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment Program (Treatments That Work)


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Elizabeth E. Epstein, Barbara S. McCrady

Problems with alcohol use are common and often occur with other psychological and social problems as well. Left untreated, alcohol use disorder can have significant impact on a person’s functioning, health, and relationships. This cognitive-behavioral treatment has been scientifically proven to help individuals achieve and maintain abstinence. The treatment protocol has been developed with the benefit of each author’s 25+ years of clinical experience in treating substance abusers; it is user-friendly and easy to deliver in a clinically meaningful way. Rooted in the client’s individualized assessment and life context, the program can be tailored to gender-specific issues and personal needs.

The 12-session program is comprised of interventions to help the client stop drinking and prevent relapse. The client becomes aware of his or her drinking patterns and triggers through self-recording. Each session involves skill training and anticipating high-risk situations. The client learns how to manage triggers, deal with urges to drink, rearrange behavioral consequences, challenge alcohol-related thoughts and refuse drinks. Additional treatment components include managing anxiety and depression, building social support, assertiveness training, anger management, and problem solving.

This therapist guide provides detailed instructions for conducting each session, sample dialogues, and completed examples of forms. Introductory chapters offer important background information, a discussion of clinical issues, and recommendations for assessment and determining the level of care. The corresponding workbook allows the client to follow along with the information prsented in session and includes forms for homework. Overcoming alcohol problems is an attainable goal with this effective and comprehensive program.
