Humanistic Psychotherapies: Handbook of Research and Practice

By (author): David J. Cain, Kevin Keenan, Shawn Rubin

Humanistic psychotherapy is based on more than 70 years of psychological research, but there has been a surge of literature since the first edition of Humanistic Psychotherapies. This extensively updated volume highlights the flourishing evidence base for humanistic approaches, demonstrating that they are equal to or more effective than other therapeutic approaches. In fact, cornerstones of humanistic practice, such as therapist empathy and authentic emotional expression and experience, are essential to promoting positive client outcomes for non-humanistic practitioners as well.

In addition to a general review of research, the contributors focus on specific approaches, including: person-centered therapy, gestalt therapy, focusing-oriented therapy, existential therapy, emotion-focused therapy, relationship enhancement therapy, and child-centered play therapy.

Also discussed are important therapist factors and client variables that contribute to effective psychotherapy.

New findings are translated into practical guidelines for clinicians. Numerous case examples with vivid client¬ therapist dialogues illustrate how humanistic principles and approaches can be applied in actual practice not just with individuals, but also with couples, families, and children. The final chapter synthesizes the entire volume with a proposed model for optimal humanistic psychotherapeutic practice, based on 20 simple premises drawn from the best evidence available.

Assessing and Treating Low Incidence/High Severity Psychological Disorders of Childhood

Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Stefan C. Dombrowski, Karen L. Gischlar, Martin Mrazik

During the past several decades, interest in children’s psychological disorders has grown steadily within the research community, resulting in a burgeoning knowledge base. The majority of the attention and funding, not surprisingly, has focused on the more prevalent and well-known conditions. Although this raises the odds that young people with more well-known disorders such as ADHD, autism, and learning disorders will receive much-needed professional assessment and intervention, children with less frequently encountered disorders may experience a higher risk of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment.

Useful data has been scattered throughout the literature for severe-but-less-frequent childhood psychological disorders, including: fire setting; gender identity disorder; impulse control disorders (i.e., kleptomania, trichotillomania, intermittent explosive disorder); selective mutism; Munchausen by proxy; childhood schizophrenia; gang involvement; sexual offending; self-injurious behavior; and feral children. This concise volume offers up-to-date information on these conditions, which, though relatively rare, may have profound effect not only on the children themselves but also their families, friends, and the community at large. Coverag

e of each disorder is presented in an accessible format covering:

  • Overview and history.
  • Description and diagnostic classification, with proposed changes to the DSM-V.
  • Etiology and theory.
  • Assessment tools and interview protocols.
  • Commonly used psychological and pharmacological treatment options.
  • Current research issues and directions for future investigation.

Assessing and Treating Low Incidence/High Severity Psychological Disorders of Childhoodis a must-have reference for researchers, clinicians, practitioners, and graduate students in clinical child and school psychology, pediatrics, psychiatry, social work, school counseling, education, and public policy.

Drug Abuse Treatment (Drug and Alcohol Abuse Reviews)

Features: Used Book in Good Condition

A major national goal is to improve the health of the populace while advancing our opportunities to pursue happiness. Simulta­ neously, there are both increasing health costs and increasing demands that more be accomplished with less financial support. With the number of deaths attributable to drug abuse, especially of tobacco, in the US at about 250,000 per year, the annual cost of drug addiction is over $150 billion. Improved treatment methods can both reduce these costs and improve health by preventing the continued exposure of abusers to the toxic effects of alcohol and other drugs. This fourth volume of Drug and Alcohol Abuse Reviews focuses on the strategies currently thought best for the treatment of drugs of abuse. A variety of approaches to drug abuse treatment employ those psychosocial factors that are known to influence drug use in youth and adults. Although the main emphasis is on the treatment of illicit drug use, a major cofactor in damaging the health of drug users is nicotine (tobacco) addiction, whose treatment is also reviewed. And the roles of learning and outpatient services are shown to affect treatment significantly. Thus, the problems confronted and solutions used in drug abuse treatment have here been analyzed in concise reviews that deal with the evidence for today’ s best hypotheses and conclusions. Some emphasis is also placed on reviewing new compounds used to prevent cocaine and opioid dependence.
