It is particularly gratifying to prepare a second edition of a book, because there is the necessary impli cation that the first edition was well received. Moreover, now an opportunity is provided to correct the problems or limitations that existed in the first edition as well as to address recent developments in the field. Thus, we are grateful to our friends, colleagues, and students, as well as to the reviewers who have expressed their approval of the first edition and who have given us valuable input on how the revision could best be structured. Perhaps the first thing that the reader will notice about the second edition is that it is more extensive than the first. The volume currently has 41 chapters, in contrast to the 31 chapters that comprised the earlier version. Chapters 3, 9, 29, and 30 of the first edition either have been dropped or were combined, whereas 14 new chapters have been added. In effect, we are gratified in being able to reflect the continued growth of behavior therapy in the 1980s. Behavior therapists have addressed an ever-increasing number of disorders and behavioral dysfunctions in an increasing range of populations. The most notable advances are taking place in such areas as cognitive approaches, geriatrics, and behavioral medicine, and also in the treatment of childhood disorders.

Hope has previously been a construct more of interest to philosophy and religion than in psychology. New research has shown, however, that hope is closely related to optimism, feelings of control, and motivation toward achieving one's goals. The Handbook of Hope presents a comprehensive overview of the psychological inquiry into hope, including its measurement, its development in children, how its loss is associated with specific clinical disorders, and therapeutic approaches that can help instill hope in those who have lost theirs. A final section discusses hope in occupational applications: how the use of hope can make one a better coach, teacher, or parent. Key Features * Defines hope as a construct and describes development of hope through the lifespan * Provides multiple instruments for measuring hope * Guides professionals in how to assess hope levels & implement hope as part of therapy * Relates hope to all portions of the population * Includes case studies, figures, and tables to aid understanding of research findings and concepts; discusses the importance of hope to relationships, achieving goals, and success at work

The purpose of this handbook, originally published in 1984, was to provide a compreh- sive review of current clinical descriptions, research , and theories of psychopathology. Descriptive psychopathology is a ?eld that forms the foundation of clinical practice and research in clinical psychology, psychiatry, psychiatric social work, psychiatric nursing, and allied professions in mental health. Since the 1st edition, the editors have devised and updated a handbook to cover both general and speci?c topics in psychopathology that would be useful to researchers, practitioners, and graduate or other advanced students in the mental health and behavioral medicine professions. To implement this plan, we have very carefully chosen colleagues whom we respect for their expertise in particular ?elds. These authors include both clinicians and researchers who have outstanding national reputations, as well as more junior behavioral scientists and clinicians who, in our opinion, will achieve similar recognition in the future. The excellent chapters in this book lead us to believe that we have chosen wisely. We would like to express our appreciation to these authors for their outstanding contributions and cooperation.

Health and Suffering in America analyzes how we came to see various forms of suffering as "mental illness," and argues that social and historical dynamics, not scientific discovery, gave us this notion. Robert Fancher argues that the beliefs of mental health professionals have less to do with science than with the professions' own values and ideologies. The image we have of mental health care hides vast realms of unexamined assumptions. In effect, the author maintains that "mental health" consists of mental health professionals' ideas about how people ought to live and act, not discoveries about human nature. The body of the book consists of detailed analyses and critiques of four influential American cultures of therapy: psychoanalysis, behaviorism, cognitive therapy, and biological therapy. Fancher emphasizes how heavily their concepts and methods are determined by their cultures rather than by empirical data. Furthermore, our notions of mental health are not scientific discoveries, but moral ideals. Yet mental health workers often fail to understand this. As a result, they misunderstand their own authority and, worse, fail to subject their moral ideals to appropriate moral and cultural criticism. The new introduction by the author explores how the rise of managed health care coalesces with insistence on parity for mental health problems, supported by continuing claims that mental health care is science-based.

Although behaviorism made a major contribution to educational practice and created opportunities for psychologists in schools, behavioral techniques have mostly been applied in areas peripheral to teaching children new problem-solving or content mastery skills. The application of recent developments in cognitive psychology and cognitive-behavioral therapy in educational settings has also remained more a promise than a reality. COGNITIVE-BEHAVIORAL PSYCHOLOGY IN THE SCHOOLS argues persuasively that cognitive psychology has much to offer in the educational setting including an expanded role for school psychologists, beyond classroom management and psychoeducational assessment. Toward this end, this volume provides a unifying theoretical framework for applying new developments to the delivery of school psychological and educational services. To facilitate the integration of cognitive-behavioral theories into educational practice, the bulk of the book is organized according to the three primary levels of service offered by school psychologists: assessment, teaching and direct intervention, and indirect intervention. An opening section provides the historical and conceptual context. Reflecting the competence orientation of cognitive-behavioral management, individual chapters in this volume explore different aspects of competence--academic, personal, and social--and present a variety of techniques for instilling self control and problem-solving strategies. Beginning with assessment issues, the book moves to the specific application of cognitive-behavioral methods to reading, spelling, math, and writing instruction. There are chapters focusing on the use of CBM for social and emotional problems, with hyperactive and impulsive children, and children with handicaps and learning disabilities. The final chapters address the prevention of mental health problems in schools and the need for system-wide changes in the schools. The volume also provides a critical review of the theoretical and empirical bases for suggested applications. Limitations of applications are noted, and areas for future research are delineated. COGNITIVE-BEHAVIORAL PSYCHOLOGY IN THE SCHOOLS is targeted at school psychologists, child clinical psychologists, and special educators. The book would also be an appropriate text for graduate courses in assessment, child behavior therapy and counseling, and special education instructional methods. The material gathered here will challenge researchers and those involved with teacher education.

The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies provides a contemporary and comprehensive illustration of the wide range of evidence-based psychotherapy tools available to both clinicians and researchers. Chapters are written by the most prominent names in cognitive and behavioral theory, assessment, and treatment, and they provide valuable insights concerning the theory, development, and future directions of cognitive and behavioral interventions. Unlike other handbooks that provide a collection of intervention chapters but do not successfully tie these interventions together, the editors have designed a volume that not only takes the reader through underlying theory and philosophies inherent to a cognitive and behavioral approach, but also includes chapters regarding case formulation, requisite professional cognitive and behavioral competencies, and integration of multiculturalism into clinical practice. The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies clarifies terms present in the literature regarding cognitive and behavioral interventions and reveals the rich variety, similarities, and differences among the large number of cognitive and behavioral interventions that can be applied individually or combined to improve the lives of patients.

For cognitive therapy to be successful, therapists must identify the key factors that contribute to their clients' problems. Effective cognitive case conceptualization necessarily precedes appropriate targeting and intervention selection. It requires the integration of the results of a comprehensive assessment into a strong conceptual foundation. Solidly grounded in recent research, and focusing particular attention on important new theoretical developments, this book first offers a comprehensive overview of the contemporary cognitive model of therapy. It then lays out detailed, easy-to-follow procedures for assessing within a cognitive framework, developing effective individualized cognitive case conceptualizations, and implementing state-of-the-art interventions based on them. A step-by-step guide for concisely summarizing and representing the salient features of a client's presentation is included. Extensive case histories bring to life the entire process of cognitive therapy--assessment, conceptualization, and intervention--for several clients with a variety of complex clinical problems: panic disorder with agoraphobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and chronic or recurrent major depressive disorder. Cognitive Case Conceptualization will become an indispensable desk reference for many experienced clinicians as well as trainees.

Gruppenpsychotherapie ist eine wirksame und ökonomische, dabei jedoch sehr anspruchsvolle Behandlungsform. Ohne gründliche Kenntnis der gruppendynamischen Verläufe und speziellen therapeutischen Anwendungen ist Angst vor Gruppen aus Therapeuten-Sicht durchaus berechtigt. Diese Angst vermag das Buch zu zerstreuen durch - eine kompetente Darstellung der Wirkprinzipien in Therapiegruppen, - die praxisnahe Beschreibung der Zusammenstellung von Gruppen, ihrer typischen Phasenverläufe und erwartbaren Konflikte, - Erfahrungsberichte aus störungsspezifischen Gruppen - und zum ersten Mal veröffentlicht: die Vermittlung speziellen Wissens über Gruppen mit traumatisierten Menschen (Luise Reddemann).
