    "Practicing Psychodynamic Therapy is an excellent complement to Summers and Barber's earlier evidence-based guide, Psychodynamic Therapy. The psychodynamically formulated case studies are fascinating, and beautifully demonstrate the struggles and learning curve of novice therapists, describing in a refreshingly honest way their successful--and less-than-successful--interventions with patients who suffer from obsessionality, depression, trauma, and more. The down-to-earth and clear exposition of both theory and clinical cases makes this an exceptionally valuable book for beginning therapists, as well as undergraduate and graduate students being exposed to psychodynamic concepts and practice for the first time. This volume convincingly dispels any myths about the relevance of psychodynamic therapy for the practice of psychotherapy today."--Stanley B. Messer, PhD, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

    "This compelling, clearly written book addresses important questions for clinicians starting out in the world of mental health: What is psychodynamic psychotherapy? Why should a well-informed clinician learn it? How does it work? Jargon-free clinical cases--written by clinicians from varied training backgrounds who utilize a wide range of psychodynamic techniques--depict treatment with patients who suffer from panic disorder, major depression, combinations of depression and anxiety, and personality disorders. A 'must read' for clinicians of all orientations, this book will help to solidify psychodynamic therapy and techniques in the contemporary psychotherapeutic landscape."--Barbara Milrod, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College

    "Referencing the emerging body of research on the efficaciousness of psychodynamic theory, this volume is organized around 12 cases presented by early-career psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers. The diverse cases bring to light the unique relationship between psychotherapist and client and offer an in-depth look at individual approaches taken within a psychodynamic framework. Each of six core psychodynamic problems identified by Summers and Barber is covered in the cases. With its evidence-based focus, carefully selected cases, and emphasis on creating a change-oriented therapeutic alliance, this casebook will be an invaluable resource for mental health professionals for years to come."--Aaron T. Beck, MD, University Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania

    "This accessible clinical casebook illustrates how patients and therapists can work together to address and resolve the most common core problems encountered in therapeutic practice. Twelve refreshingly candid treatment narratives demonstrate specific techniques for working through these problems at different stages of therapy, offering useful strategies for catalyzing and assessing change. Both novice and experienced clinicians will find much of use in this book."--Diana Diamond, PhD, Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, City University of New York, and Senior Fellow, Personality Disorders Institute, Weill Medical College of Cornell University

    "Summers and Barber have gathered a series of eloquent and detailed cases that illustrate and enrich the approach elaborated in their earlier book, Psychodynamic Therapy: A Guide to Evidence-Based Practice. In this casebook, contributing authors openly share their clinical experience in a personal and candid fashion, offering a window into the very private relationships that develop between therapists and their patients. Indispensable for students of psychotherapy and their teachers, the book provides a rich opportunity for clinical learning and reflection."--Eve Caligor, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons

    "Therapists searching for psychodynamic concepts and techniques that will help them better conceptualize their patients' problems will benefit greatly from this book. The book begins with a summary of the authors' framework and then follows with 12 extensive case studies in which their model is carefully applied, assisting clinicians in identifying and working with each patient's core psychodynamic patterns. This is an outstanding, essential book for all dynamically oriented clinicians."--Walter N. Stone, MD, Department of Psychiatry (Emeritus), University of Cincinnati School of Medicine

    Review

     

    "One of the most important treatment developments in recent years has been the theoretical and empirical elaboration of mindfulness and acceptance into evidence-based cognitive-behavioral protocols. Books on this topic, however, have typically focused either on general theory or on clinical applications to narrow segments of psychopathology. Now Hayes, Follette, and Linehan--three of the most creative thinkers in this area--have produced a volume surveying the current status of these new intervention strategies across the wide spectrum of psychopathology. Anyone seeking to remain up to date on the applications of these exciting new procedures with a variety of client problems will want to have this book close at hand."--David H. Barlow, PhD, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders and Department of Psychology, Boston University

    "Some of today's most innovative scientist-practitioners provide an in-depth examination of the many ways that the concepts of mindfulness and acceptance are being integrated into cognitive-behavioral therapy, which hitherto has had little systematic contact with experiential therapies and Eastern philosophies. This book will be of interest to all mental health professionals concerned with enhancing therapeutic change in their patients and with furthering their own personal development. Provocative and at times very wise, this is 'must' reading for researchers and clinicians alike, inviting critical consideration of new and promising ideas and procedures. It is an appropriate text for graduate-level courses in psychotherapy, particularly within clinical psychology programs, and would serve as an excellent basis for a special-topic seminar on mindfulness and acceptance therapies."--Gerald C. Davison, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Southern California

    Review

    "A 'must read' for everyone in the field of psychotherapy or behavior therapy, as well as students entering the profession. The significantly revised second edition reviews the growing body of research support for ACT and presents new developments in case conceptualization and treatment implementation."--David H. Barlow, PhD, ABPP, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry and Founder and Director Emeritus, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Boston University

    "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Second Edition, presents new data and clinical insights and expresses the theoretical foundations of ACT in a fresh way. The original book was an extraordinary achievement; the second edition is even better. It shows exactly how basic science and therapeutic application can combine in the service of new and effective methods to alleviate suffering. This book is essential reading for all students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, and psychiatry."--Mark Williams, DPhil, Emeritus Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Oxford, United Kingdom

    "Presents an influential approach to helping clients accept their thoughts and feelings and overcome experiential avoidance....The authors delineate a solid clinical rationale and provide clear guidelines for ACT implementation. A real strength of this book is the chapters on each stage of treatment, which detail a wealth of strategies and interventions and include excellent exercises, therapist-client dialogues, and pointers for practice."--Leslie S. Greenberg, PhD, Distinguished Research Professor, Department of Psychology, York University, Canada

    "In the dynamic field of mindfulness-based therapies, this impressive book is a landmark contribution. The authors offer a sophisticated and wise approach to human transformation, one that has been validated by clinical research and honed by a wide range of clinical applications. This second edition is ideally suited for graduate-level courses in psychotherapy as well as for mental health practitioners. It offers a balance of rich theoretical context and clear, accessible guidance for applying ACT to a range of emotional and behavioral difficulties."--Tara Brach, PhD, author of Radical Acceptance

    "This second edition is perfectly timed, given the explosion of developments in the underlying theoretical principles and empirical research associated with this approach to treatment. The book is beautifully written and is an outstanding resource for clinician and researcher alike, whether novice or experienced. The principles of functional contextualism and relational frame theory are laid out in an easily understandable yet in-depth manner. The book's presentation of the core principles of ACT--including practical guidance for implementing them in clinical practice--is simply superb. This is an excellent text for graduate students in clinical psychology."--Michelle G. Craske, PhD, Professor and Vice Chair of Psychology and Director, Anxiety Disorders Research Center, University of California, Los Angeles

    "A long-awaited resource for clinicians working with patients with PTSD. Experienced and new clinicians will find this book an unparalleled guide for delivering every step of CPT. This is one of the most detailed and practical PTSD treatment guides available."--Richard A. Bryant, PhD, Scientia Professor, School of Psychology, University of New South Wales, Australia

    "This indispensable book from three of the top experts in the world presents everything you could possibly want to know about CPT. Beginning with a strong theoretical chapter and moving deftly to a comprehensive review of published clinical trials, this very accessible work considers moderators of treatment, how to address comorbid conditions, patient preparation, and the CPT therapeutic process. The centerpiece of the book is the CPT manual, which offers superb guidance to any practitioner who wishes to utilize this powerful therapeutic approach."--Matthew J. Friedman, MD, PhD, Senior Advisor, National Center for PTSD, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs; Professor of Psychiatry and Pharmacology and Toxicology, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth

    "An impressive trio of experts, Resick, Monson, and Chard have created a state-of-the-art manual for CPT, currently considered a critical skill for clinicians. CPT is one of the few treatments for PTSD that have been consistently empirically validated. This book offers the fundamentals to literally change the lives of trauma survivors. Containing step-by-step instruction, troubleshooting tips for common hurdles, and guidance for treating specific populations, this manual is essential equipment for mental health providers of all stripes."--Carrie H. Kennedy, PhD, ABPP, Medical Service Corps, U.S. Navy

    "Without question, this is the single best source on CPT. In addition to providing a treatment manual, the authors present a comprehensive theoretical overview and data supporting CPT’s effectiveness. This book should be on the desk of any clinician who aims to deliver evidence-based treatment for PTSD."--Bret A. Moore, PsyD, ABPP, former military psychologist

    Review

     

    "As a reader, you are in good hands. The authors not only have used these methods themselves, they have guided hundreds of therapists through the process. The exercises, worksheets, and instructive text are all road-tested and designed to help you have the best experience possible using CBT for self-practice. The self-reflection exercises integrated into this book help you maximize your learning….Along the way, your efforts are likely to kindle new depths of meaning and new ways of being to help you become a better therapist and a happier person."--from the Foreword by Christine A. Padesky, PhD, Center for Cognitive Therapy, Huntington Beach, California

    “This terrific book places direct personal experience of CBT right at the heart of the training process. SP/SR has been an enduring passion for Bennett-Levy and his international team of authors for more than 15 years, and this steady commitment shines through in the book’s integration of clearly explained theory, evidence, and lucidly designed and written practical modules. Encouraging us to apply CBT concepts and methods to ourselves, the book highlights our common humanity--because we and our patients have the same imperfect human minds, and we too can liberate ourselves from unhelpful old patterns in just the same way. A radical and refreshing approach!”--Melanie Fennell, PhD, Oxford Mindfulness Centre, Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford, United Kingdom 

    "This workbook skillfully and compassionately walks mental health trainees and experienced practitioners alike through the steps of applying the evidence-based practices of CBT to themselves for professional and personal growth. Using well-crafted written and experiential exercises, Bennett-Levy et al. help the reader to recognize self-limiting 'old ways of being' and to develop and maintain 'new ways of being.' The result is an increase in empathy for clients who struggle with the therapeutic process (which is arduous!) and an enhanced congruency between what therapists offer their clients and how they live their own lives. The book will be of great benefit in graduate training, in group supervision, as a professional development project, or as part of a CBT retreat with colleagues."--Cory F. Newman, PhD, ABPP, Director, Center for Cognitive Therapy, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

    "The authors have done CBT a great service. Good teachers know their subject inside out; therapists who use CBT tools to understand their own vulnerabilities and strengths--and change long-standing habits of thinking and behavior--will be better at teaching these tools to clients. Clients sense this authenticity. The authors show how to imbue CBT with compassion, humanity, and the humility that comes from direct experience of how hard change can be."--Willem Kuyken, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford, United Kingdom

    "This book builds on what we already know about working with clients: learning through experience is far more valuable than being told something or reading about it. Of course, this principle applies just as much to the therapist. The book will likely be helpful to clinicians at all career stages who wish to improve their ability to help others or who are working with challenging clients."--Adam S. Radomsky, PhD, Department of Psychology, Concordia University, Canada

    "I applaud the authors for this excellent book. CBT offers highly effective tools for change, but convincing clients to use them is not always easy. There is no doubt that personal practice with the techniques will enhance the therapist's ability to motivate clients. Therapists will be better able to respond to queries convincingly and preempt any problems in implementation. Importantly, SP/SR is likely to increase practitioners' empathy and respect for clients, thus enhancing the therapeutic alliance and improving outcomes."--Analise O'Donovan, PhD, School of Applied Psychology, Griffith University, Australia

    "For years, we have been practicing and teaching CBT from the outside in: theoretical underpinnings, procedures, protocols, and techniques. At long last, we have a book that enhances CBT practice through a systematic process of self-practice and self-reflection. The authors have done an exceptional job of fostering an experiential journey through which understanding of the therapist's self and of patients can be developed via an emphasis on process, strengths, and culture. This book should be read by all CBT practitioners and trainers."--Chee-Wing Wong, PsychD, Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

    The most famous nineteenth-century British reformer of care for the mentally ill and disabled was undoubtedly John Conolly, whose 1856 Treatment of the Insane without Mechanical Restraints is also reissued in this series. However, Conolly's work at the Hanwell Asylum near London was based in part on the pioneering efforts of Edward Parker Charlesworth (1781–1853) and his younger colleague Robert Gardiner Hill (1811–78), who had already (and controversially) abolished physical restraint in the Lincoln Asylum by 1838. Conolly is known to have visited and been impressed by the Lincoln hospital, but his supporters, and his own book, suggested his primacy in the field, and Hill published this work in 1857 in order to refute Conolly's claims. The first part consists of Hill's account of his and Charlesworth's reforms at Lincoln, and the second reprints many of the letters and pamphlets which focused on the topic during this period.

    Review

    "CAMS dramatically decreases suicidal ideation and overall symptom distress while increasing hope, patient satisfaction, and retention to clinical care.…We suicidologists believe suicidal people must be meaningfully understood, appreciated, and given particular skills to find their way in life. This book is a major contribution in this singular pursuit."--from the Foreword by Marsha M. Linehan, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Director, Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics, University of Washington 

    "There are few books that I recommend hands-down as 'must reads' for all behavioral health clinicians--this is one of them. In this second edition, Jobes has succeeded in summarizing a prolific 30-year clinical research career in suicidology into a can’t-put-it-down, novel-like professional resource. The evidence-based CAMS approach in this book has saved lives and will continue to save the lives of patients at high risk for suicide."--Alan L. Peterson, PhD, ABPP, Aaron and Bobbie Elliott Krus Endowed Chair in Psychiatry, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio

    "This book provides powerful, evidence-based tools for engaging patients and managing the situations that tend to unnerve clinicians the most. CAMS offers a way for clinician and patient to work as a team using the self-identified drivers of distress in the patient’s language. The approach is refreshingly patient-centered and collaborative--the way most clinicians wish they could work. It allows the clinician to be courageous, honest, and to relinquish the illusion of control, while having a potentially life-saving impact. Crossing any lines of theoretical orientation, CAMS can be readily implemented 'in the trenches.' I hope this fantastic book becomes a cornerstone in every clinical training program in the mental health disciplines."--Christine Moutier, MD, Chief Medical Officer, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention

    "CAMS is a prominent feature of the clinical landscape of therapeutics for suicidality. The second edition of this manual is an eagerly awaited update that reflects significant research advances, making it an essential addition to the modern clinician's toolbox. CAMS is effective, and, crucially, it is well liked by both patients and clinicians. This book offers an articulate and practical account of a leading therapy."--Thomas Joiner, PhD, The Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Florida State University

    "Jobes is one of the leading forces in suicide prevention, whose ideas and thinking have led to untold advances. The influence of CAMS can be seen within all of today's most established approaches to reducing suicidal behavior. Flipping through the well-worn pages of my copy of the first edition of Managing Suicidal Risk, I didn't think it would be possible to improve upon it. But true to form, Jobes has knocked it out of the park. This second edition synthesizes our rapidly expanding knowledge of safe and effective care for suicidal patients. It is an essential tool for any clinician."--Craig J. Bryan, PsyD, ABPP, Executive Director, National Center for Veterans Studies; Department of Psychology, University of Utah

    When bright lives are derailed by schizophrenia, bewildered and anxious families struggle to help, and to cope, even as scientists search for causes and treatments that prove elusive. Painful and often misunderstood, schizophrenia profoundly affects people who have the disease and their loved ones. Here Ronald Chase, an accomplished biologist, sets out to discover the facts about the disease and better understand what happened to his older brother, Jim, who developed schizophrenia as a young adult. Chase's account alternates between a fiercely loyal and honest memoir and rigorous scientific exploration. He finds scientific answers to deeply personal questions about the course of his brother's illness. He describes psychiatric practice from the 1950s – when electroconvulsive shock therapy was common and the use of antipsychotic medications was in its infancy – to the development of newer treatments in the 1990s. Current medical and scientific research about the causes of the disease increases our understanding of genetic and environmental factors. Chase also explores the stigma of mental illness, the evolution of schizophrenia, the paradox of its persistence despite low reproduction rates in persons with the disease, and the human stories behind death statistics. With the author's intimate knowledge of the suffering caused by this disease, "Schizophrenia" emphasizes research strategies, the importance of sound scientific approaches, and the challenges that remain.

    "This important book illuminates how an individual's theory of emotion, emotion-regulation strategies, and meta-emotions influence well-being and experience. The contribution Leahy makes could be quite profound, as his ideas and clinical experience bridge the areas of emotional intelligence, cognition, self-regulation, and the practice of psychological therapies. Clinicians working in all orientations will find this volume a source of invaluable ideas."--Adrian Wells, PhD, School of Psychological Sciences, University of Manchester, United Kingdom

    "Highly accessible and filled with illustrative clinical case examples, this book is a valuable resource for any modern psychotherapist. The volume provides practical guidance to target emotional schemas in therapy. It is a masterful contribution by one of the leading experts in CBT. Every clinician should be familiar with the techniques outlined in this excellent work."--Stefan G. Hofmann, PhD, Department of Psychology, Boston University

    "Leahy offers a version of cognitive therapy that richly embraces emotion and addresses it with nuance and respect. This is not your grandmother’s cognitive therapy. I learned much from this book and am confident that other readers from outside the cognitive therapy world will as well."--Paul L. Wachtel, PhD, Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership, The City College of New York, and Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, The Graduate Center, The City University of New York

    "Although primarily focusing on thoughts and behaviors--as we are trained to do in CBT--is appropriate and effective for many clients, others present for treatment with problematic responses to their own and others' emotions. This wonderful book clearly outlines the role that emotion plays in psychological disorders and shows how to work with emotions throughout the course of therapy to help patients improve their relationships, learn how to make important decisions, and cope with life’s inevitable challenges. Helpful case examples, scripts, and assessment guidelines make the book even more user friendly. I am already using what I learned from this book in my daily work. That rarely happens!"--Deborah Roth Ledley, PhD, private practice, Plymouth Meeting and Narberth, Pennsylvania

    "This book extends the practice of cognitive therapy to include a most important and clinically relevant focus on the role of emotion in the change process. Drawing on empirical evidence and clinical experience, Leahy has captured a truly evidence-based approach to treatment. The book is unlike many others in presenting clinical guidelines that not only draw on different theoretical orientations, but also integrate research and practice. Vividly illustrated with clinical vignettes and transcripts, this volume offers insights for any and all therapists looking to increase their clinical effectiveness."--Marvin R. Goldfried, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Stony Brook University

    "This straightforward book is highly informative and compelling. Leahy has a unique ability to convey the phenomena of the human condition. He suggests practical and useful techniques to help clients identify, validate, and respond effectively to their emotions. A particular strength is the focus on specific emotional contexts and experiences that clients typically bring to therapy. An essential text for teaching diverse groups of trainees about the importance of working with emotions in therapy and how best to do so."--Douglas S. Mennin, PhD, Department of Psychology, Hunter College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York

    "In this second edition of their influential text, Dobson and Dobson provide an update and elaboration of CBT that should be part of every clinician's toolkit. Using concrete examples, the authors cover the full range of CBT techniques that are based on clear research evidence."--Stefan G. Hofmann, PhD, Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Boston University

    "Dobson and Dobson have written an important book that bridges science and practice for students and clinicians alike. The evidence base for the efficacy of CBT has long been established in a multitude of research studies, but practitioners vary widely in the methods they use. This book provides an overview of successful treatments and demonstrates how to use CBT principles in an evidence-based way to plan and deliver treatment."--Judith S. Beck, PhD, President, Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy

    "An outstanding resource for clinicians at any level who want to add depth to their command of CBT. Reading this book is like consulting with a wise and generous colleague or supervisor. The authors detail the practical nuances of how to proceed from start to finish, including suggestions for overcoming obstacles. The clinical examples are vivid and abundant. Areas of confusion and overlap among models are explained, myths are addressed, and technical adaptations are highlighted. The updated second edition offers a concise synthesis of the relevant research literature that is geared precisely to the practicing clinician. I plan to use this book as a text in my psychotherapy course."--Denise D. Davis, PhD, Department of Psychology, Vanderbilt University

    "Dobson and Dobson offer a detailed and thorough yet highly readable resource that can be used by students and practitioners in all areas of mental health. The chapters flow in a way that nicely mimics all the steps in the therapy process that an expert in CBT would take in order to set up the treatment for success. Along the way, Dobson and Dobson provide practical guidelines, tools for assessment, strategies for in-session structure, and tips for successful homework and enhancing motivation. I especially like the 'myth boxes' and the ongoing case example that continues throughout the book."--Simon A. Rego, PsyD, ABPP, Chief Psychologist, Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine

    A controversial psychiatrist, Lyttleton Stewart Forbes Winslow (1844–1913) grew up around the lunatic asylums run by his father, Forbes B. Winslow, who was a specialist in the treatment of mental illness, establishing also medical grounds for the plea of insanity in criminal defence. Lyttleton spent much of his own medical career attempting to show the courts that crime and alcoholism were linked to mental illness, though he later gained notoriety for his amateur detective work: he claimed to know the identity of Jack the Ripper. Published in 1874, this book examines, often through case descriptions, the legal framework within which the mentally ill were managed, and comparisons are made with the status quo elsewhere in the world. It is an enlightening but often disturbing insight into the institutional treatment of mental illness in the late nineteenth century.

    "This volume charts a new course for the models and applications of assessment in CBT. Leading authorities in the field examine both conceptual and pragmatic concerns in the measurement of cognitive processes and outcomes, as well as the connection between cognitive assessment and other critical features of the therapy process. Particular attention is given to the implications of DSM-5 for assessment, dimensional and transdiagnostic considerations, and the role of assessment in case conceptualization. The editors have purposefully attended to assessment from diverse perspectives, giving the book a unique place in the field. It will be of interest to a wide variety of practitioners, researchers, and students."--Keith S. Dobson, PhD, Professor and Head, Department of Psychology, University of Calgary, Canada

    "With cognitive-behavioral treatment covering such a variety of mental health conditions, the need is greater than ever for careful evaluation beyond the standard history. This book demonstrates the value of a multipronged approach. Remarkably comprehensive, it will help guide clinicians, researchers, and students in a quest to better serve those who seek care. I know something about evaluating patients, and I learned a lot from reading this book."--James Morrison, MD, Affiliate Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Oregon Health and Science University

    "Providing a timely summary of the major challenges facing the field of cognitive clinical assessment, Brown and Clark set an agenda for future research that is both challenging and compelling. Chapters by internationally recognized experts offer a balanced summary and thought-provoking critique of the present state of the field. Each chapter concludes with Key Points that nicely summarize content and highlight recommendations relevant to clinical practice, research, and training. Essential reading for CBT practitioners and researchers, it would also be a solid and stimulating text for graduate courses."--Gregory H. Mumma, PhD, Department of Psychology, Texas Tech University

    "Addressing a key element of cognitive therapy, the editors have put together a great volume that helped me consider assessment in the detail it deserves. The book guides us to ensure that assessment is evidence based and woven throughout a course of therapy. It urges clinicians to think beyond giving clients just another self-report questionnaire and helps us understand the measures we use (and those we don’t, but should). I heartily encourage clinicians to read this book--and take heed of the guidance it provides--so we can be truly empirical in our work."--Nick Grey, DClinPsy, Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, United Kingdom

    Elsevier now offers a series of derivative works based on the acclaimed Meylers Side Effect of Drugs, 15th Edition. These individual volumes are grouped by specialty to benefit the practicing physician or health care clinician. The unwarranted effects of medications used in psychiatry can adversely affect a treatment plan. This book is critical in helping psychiatrists and mental health professionals assess the adverse effects of drugs such as antidepressants, mood stabilizers, hypnosedatives, and antipsychotic drugs. The material is drawn from the 15th edition of the internationally renowned encyclopedia, Meyler's Side Effects of Drugs, and the latest volumes in the companion series, Side Effects of Drugs Annuals. Drug names have usually been designated by their recommended or proposed International Non-proprietary Names (rINN or pINN); when those are not available, clinical names have been used. In some cases, brand names have been used. This volume is critical for any health professional involved in the administration of psychiatric mediations. It surpasses the Physician's Desk Reference by including clinical case studies and independent expert analysis. Features: complete index of drug names; most complete cross referencing of drug-drug interactions available; and extensive references to primary and secondary literature. It also includes information on adverse effects in pregnancy. The book is divided into six sections: Antidepressants - A general introduction to their adverse effects, followed by monographs on individual drugs and groups of drugs (including lithium); Neuroleptic drugs - A general introduction to their adverse effects, followed by monographs on individual drugs; Hypnosedatives - A general introduction to their adverse effects, followed by monographs on individual drugs; Drugs of abuse; Drugs used to treat Alzheimer's disease; and Psychological and psychiatric adverse effects of non-psychoactive drugs.

    Review

     

    "A masterwork of CBT for the next generation. Tolin bases his approach on the (often-neglected) fundamentals of behavior therapy, and deftly merges them with the new science of emotion regulation, acceptance, and mindfulness. I was delighted to see that Tolin provides a wealth of information about dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). This book picks up on what so many other CBT texts miss, such as how to manage the therapeutic relationship, how to make clinical decisions based on case conceptualization, how to deal with treatment-interfering behaviors, and how to approach truly challenging cases. All that, and it’s an entertaining read to boot--how many textbooks can make that claim? This book is a 'must read' for every clinician, student, and professional who wants to deliver excellent CBT."--Marsha M. Linehan, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Director, Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics, University of Washington; developer of DBT

    "A thoughtful and pragmatic guide to the practice of CBT. Tolin not only describes what to do, but also lays out a theoretical basis for his recommendations. His approach is clinically informed and eminently practical. This book does a marvelous job of cutting through the academic clutter and speaking directly to what needs to be done in the clinical context. It will prove to be an invaluable training tool for students in psychology and the allied professions."--Steven D. Hollon, PhD, Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Professor of Psychology, Vanderbilt University 

    "As CBT becomes the dominant scientifically informed approach to treatment, having access to easily digestible explanations of core concepts is increasingly important. Tolin presents sophisticated concepts in a lively manner, with case examples that run through each chapter. I plan to adopt this book in my graduate course on CBT, and expect it to be a go-to resource in treatment planning. I recommend this book to every clinician at every level, given the universality and broad appeal of the approach."--Dean McKay, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychology, Fordham University; past president, Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies

    "Truly a definitive volume on how to implement CBT principles with skill, sensitivity, and flexibility. This is a 'must-read' book for anyone who is learning, practicing, or teaching CBT; I will certainly use it in my graduate course. Tolin weaves complex scientific knowledge into his clear, clinically relevant, step-by-step guide. The prose is engaging, accessible, and sometimes even wry. Don’t be daunted by the book's comprehensiveness--you will thoroughly enjoy every chapter!"--Lizabeth Roemer, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Massachusetts Boston

    "This is a very useful book written by one of the field’s leading clinician-researchers. Tolin moves the reader through the process of formulating a patient’s difficulties and then directly tying treatment interventions to this formulation. He embeds clear explanations of the science behind CBT principles throughout the book; evocative case material helps the reader put the ideas into practice. This is a terrific book for the trainee who wants a thorough grounding in CBT. For the experienced clinician, it is like having a virtual colleague at your side to consult with on occasion as you take care of your patients."--Mark H. Pollack, MD, The Grainger Professor and Chairman, Department of Psychiatry, Rush University Medical Center

    "This book reflects the user-friendly style that Tolin is known for; it renders complex concepts easy to grasp and apply in everyday therapy. Practitioners will gain valuable tools and find many examples for practicing CBT with a diverse group of clients and problems. It’s a fun read and a fine guide to understanding why people are suffering and how to help them make critical changes in their behaviors, thoughts, and feelings. Essential reading for clinicians-in-training and for practicing therapists who want to strengthen their skills and improve their patient outcomes."--Gail Steketee, PhD, MSW, Dean and Professor, School of Social Work, Boston University

    "Doing CBT is a wonderful overview of CBT principles, rationales, and techniques. Clear, humorous, and free of pretension, Tolin’s book is a game changer. It is an invaluable resource both for the graduate student developing foundational skills and the highly experienced practitioner looking for a toolbox full of ideas. The book begins with excellent coverage of the cognitive, behavioral, and emotional explanations for psychological distress. What follows is a detailed description of intervention delivery that addresses how to build the therapeutic alliance and use a variety of evidence-based interventions. The book concludes with three helpful case examples that show the process of case conceptualization, treatment, and assessment in real-world contexts. The volume and quality of information, combined with Tolin’s highly engaging writing style, make this book an indispensable tool for any clinician."--Joel Minden, PhD, private practice, Chico, California

    "I have taught a course on Principles of Behavior Therapy in our clinical psychology doctoral program for 16 years, but, until now, I have never found a text that works. This is the book I have always wanted. It is practical, yet rich with evidence and science; full of humor, yet rigorous and detailed. Tolin's approach to describing CBT and the flexible way in which it is applied across disorders fits beautifully with the way I have always understood CBT and organized my class. Thank you and bravo to the author for this masterwork!"--Thad Leffingwell, PhD, Professor and Head, Department of Psychology, Oklahoma State University

    "This valuable volume presents a synthesis of four decades of systematic work within one of the most comprehensive, profound research programs on human motivation in the history of psychology. It is a true milestone in motivational research, as rich in conceptual insights as it is in exciting findings. The book offers a formidable set of answers as to why people do what they do, and with what consequences. An assured and instant classic!"--Arie W. Kruglanski, PhD, Distinguished University Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Maryland, College Park

    "This book is a tour-de-force exposition of the motivational nutrients needed for optimal human growth and well-being. It is global in scope, while also replete with applications to specific contexts. SDT and its mini-theories are characterized by astonishing scholarly vitality and depth of thought, combined with unrivaled relevance for everyday life at all levels of society. Taken as a whole, the advances summarized in this volume have transformed what we know about human behavior and development.”--Carol D. Ryff, PhD, Hilldale Professor of Psychology, University of Wisconsin–Madison

    "Ryan and Deci have produced a treasure for those who want to understand the basis of human motivation and learn how to improve societies. What a resource! The book carefully explains SDT and the research supporting it, including the role of universal needs, intrinsic motivation, and growth. Importantly, the volume addresses how we can use SDT to improve schools, health care, family life, psychotherapy, work, sports--nearly every aspect of social life. It is no wonder that the SDT movement is spreading around the globe."--Ed Diener, PhD, Professor of Psychology, University of Virginia and University of Utah

    "A masterful, comprehensive explication of the tenets of SDT. The authors demonstrate a keen sense of history and respect for their intellectual ancestors, stepping only lightly on a few theoretical toes. The theoretical claims that comprise SDT are coherently documented by a plethora of well-crafted and ingenious laboratory and real-world research studies. A major contribution is the compelling practical application of the theory to numerous life domains, including classroom teaching, the workplace, psychotherapy, and others. There is great wisdom in these applications. The breadth of topics will make this volume attractive to researchers, clinicians, educators, and sports and organizational psychologists."--Susan Harter, PhD, John Evans Professor of Psychology (Emerita), University of Denver

    "This superb handbook delivers all that it promises. Robinson, Watkins, and Harmon-Jones have brought together the top international researchers in the field to share the latest research on neuroscience, experimental cognitive and social/affective psychology, and their clinical applications in a highly accessible way. Readers learn which findings are now considered established and where the most exciting future directions lie. The book will be invaluable both as a reference for clinicians interested in keeping up to date with their field and as a text for graduate students and teachers in cognitive neuroscience and personality, social, and clinical psychology. A 'must have' for all interested in this critically important area."--Mark Williams, DPhil, Emeritus Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Oxford, United Kingdom

    "People continually evaluate their environments, themselves, and each other. Discoveries about the resulting emotions have implications that are central to fields as diverse as psychology, biology, economics, and law. Robinson, Watkins, and Harmon-Jones know good science, and their book is a gold mine of current information about the many facets of the cognition-emotion connection. They relate emotion to genes, hormones, attention, memory, goals, decisions, personality, anxiety, psychopathy, and much, much more. Students, researchers, and clinicians--anyone seeking to understand emotion and its impact--will find this book as readable as it is essential."--Gerald L.
