The Psychology of Meaning

Author: Keith D. Markman, PhD; Travis Proulx, PhD; and Mat

Offered by: American Psychological Association


Title Description

From moral philosophy and existentialism to the clinical realm of psychotherapy, The Psychology of Meaning explores the multifaceted nature of this highly subjective construct. The volume's contributors examine meaning along five dimensions — the architecture of meaning, responding to uncertainty, meaning from retrospection, compensating for meaning violations, and restoring meaning: physiological and neurocognitive mechanisms.

Contributors to this sweeping survey examine not only the many phenomenological aspects of meaning, but also the clinical aspects of people's reactions to the...

THE RORSCHACH INKBLOT TEST

Author: James P. Choca

Offered by: American Psychological Association


Title Description

In this highly readable interpretive guide to the Rorschach Inkblot Test, James Choca describes the uses to which it is best suited. Used appropriately, the Rorschach uniquely reveals a person's level of energy, control of emotions, and thought processes- something that other tests are unable to do.

Choca reviews the current literature, emphasizing those markers that have the strongest scientific support, and illustrates how to integrate the science and clinical art of Rorschach interpretation when working with patients. Case examples deftly illuminate these principles.

After reading this book, graduate students and professionals will have acquired a solid foundation for administering and interpreting this constructive clinical tool.

Trauma Therapy in Context
The Science and Craft of Evidence-Based Practice

As researchers have developed increasingly more effective interventions aimed at relieving trauma symptoms, trauma therapists have come to understand that the success of these approaches is highly contingent on personal factors.

Recovery too is highly variable and deeply dependent upon an individual’s distinctive history and cultural context. This book examines several current clinical approaches to trauma focused treatment. Rather than describe theoretical approaches in isolation, the editors have integrated these interventions into a broader clinical context. C...

Title Description

InRelational-Cultural Therapy, Judith V. Jordan explores the history, theory, and practice of this relationship-centered, culturally oriented form of therapy. Mainstream western psychological theories generally depict human development as moving from dependence to independence. In contrast, relational-cultural therapy is built on the premise that, throughout the lifespan, human beings grow through and toward connection, and that we need connections to flourish, even to stay alive. This theory views isolation as a major source of suffering for people, at both a personal and cultural level.

Strategic Decision Making in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Author: Amy Wenzel

Offered by: American Psychological Association


Title Description

This book describes strategic decision making, a flexible yet evidenced-based approach to making clinical decisions in order to move treatment forward in cognitive behavioral therapy. It dispels the myth that there is a single “right” therapeutic intervention that must be delivered in any one instance; in fact, many courses of action can facilitate change provided they are implemented strategically. Strategic decisions (a) follow logically from the case conceptualization, (b) are arrived upon collaboratively between the therapist and patient, (c) allow the patient to leave the session with something new, and (d) are seen through in their entirety before their effectiveness is evaluated.

The impulse to investigate the natural world is deeply rooted in our earliest childhood experiences. This notion has long guided researchers to uncover the cognitive mechanisms underlying the development of scientific reasoning in children. Until recently, however, research in cognitive development and education followed largely independent tracks. A major exception to this trend is represented in the multifaceted work of David Klahr. His lifelong effort to integrate a detailed understanding of children’s reasoning and skill acquisition with the role of education in influencing and facilitating scientific exploration has been essential to the growth of these fields.

Examining Its Influence on Social Life

Author: Michael D. Robinson

Offered by: American Psychological Association


Title Description

This book explores the possibility that people understand abstract social concepts using metaphor, which is not simply a matter of words. Rather, it is a cognitive tool for understanding abstract concepts (such as morality) in terms of superficially dissimilar concepts that are relatively easier to comprehend (such as cleanliness). In the past decade, the development of a formal theoretical framework, labeledconceptual metaphor theory, has stimulated systematic empirical study on metaphor's role in social psychological phenomena. This book summarizes current knowledge and integrates recent developments in the topic of metaphor and in the cognitive underpinnings of social life.

How do countries become dictatorships? What social, political, and interpersonal dynamics create opportunities for despots to take and maintain control? And how are dictatorships overthrown? Ever since World War II, social scientists have recognized the crucial importance of these questions. Yet despite the great strides made in our understanding of dictatorships, most studies in this area are undertaken by academics in liberal democracies who view totalitarian societies from the "outside in," a perspective that has caused researchers to ignore crucial elements of everyday life and to misunderstand the role of ideology and brute force in totalitarian societies. In this book, Fathali Moghaddam presents his "springboard model" of dictatorship, derived from both a substa...

Presurgical Psychological Screening
Understanding Patients, Improving Outcomes

Author: Andrew R. Block

Offered by: American Psychological Association


Title Description

Surgery patients’ emotional and psychosocial concerns, health-related behaviors, outcome expectations, and compliance with the treatment regimen can all influence the ultimate effectiveness of surgery. Mental health professionals are increasingly called upon to perform presurgical psychological screening (PPS) to ensure that patients are given the treatments most likely to be effective, while reducing the chances of worsening their conditions. This book presents PPS procedures for a wide range of surgery types, such as spinal surgery, organ transplantation, bariatric surgery, and plastic surgery. The authors explain how to conduct PPS, communicate results, and identify possible pre- or postsurgery interventions to mitigate risk factors.

Evidence-Based Teaching for Higher Education

Over the past two decades, a growing body of scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) has emerged. This empirical study of teaching methods, course design, and student study practices has yielded invaluable information about how teachers teach and learners learn. Yet, university faculty members remain largely unaware of the findings of SoTL research. As a result, they tend to choose their teaching techniques and tools based on intuition and previous experience rather than on scientific evidence of effectiveness. This book synthesizes SoTL findings to help teachers choose techniques and tools that maximize student learning. In order to stimulate future SoTL research, the book also recommends numerous areas for future investigation. It concludes with advice for docum...

Concern over increased childhood obesity has spurred various school-based interventions. However, these interventions often have little positive effect and may inadvertently contribute to unhealthy behaviors during weight loss attempts. Indeed, a general emphasis on appearance and weight (rather than health) can promote eating disordered behaviors. This book provides a conceptual model for understanding both obesity and eating disordered behaviors. Specifically, it advocates for body acceptance and intuitive eating — a flexible, healthy eating behavior involving awareness of the body's hunger and satiety cues. Within this context, the chapters review evidence-based school interventions in nutrition, self-regulation, exercise, body acceptance, media literacy, and min...

Evil, Destructive Experience, and Psychotherapy

In this book, prominent writers on psychotherapy present different, sometimes opposing views on humanity’s dark side and consider how these views impact their clinical practice. Must therapists address the dark side in order to help people grow constructively? Or can they work to develop clients’ positive features without addressing the dark side at all? How does one help a victim of “evil” cope in therapy, and what if the client is a perpetrator? Additional chapters address broader implications, such as whether psychology is a fundamentally moral enterprise, whether human negativity is necessarily immoral, and how organizations that strive for virtue might instead perpetuate vice. Complete with engaging case studies, this book will stimulate dialogue on importa...

Emotional Regulation Tools for Kids With AD/HD

Author: Judith M. Glasser and Kathleen Nadeau

Offered by: American Psychological Association


Title Description

Everybody likes to feel good but it's normal to be sad, angry, or frustrated when things don't go the way you want them to. Many kids with ADHD have really strong feelings that make it hard for them to control their behavior. While others may think they are "over-reacting," children with ADHD are often less self-observant and more reactive, meaning it is harder for them to understand and control their feelings. Learning to Feel Good and Stay Cool offers practical tools to help kids with ADHD manage and reduce unwanted feelings and to develop daily habits that can help them feel good and function well. Illustrated with cartoons that will hold children's interest, the book is divided into sections that can be read in smaller portions. Also includes a note and resources f...

Caring for an older family member with physical or cognitive impairments is a difficult, strenuous process. Caregivers often struggle to balance their own needs with those of the care recipient.

Alcohol and Illicit Drug Use in the Workforce and Workplace

Author: Michael R. Frone

Offered by: American Psychological Association


Title Description

In this authoritative book, Michael R. Frone takes a close, hard look at what we know and don’t know about workforce and workplace substance involvement. In doing so, he exposes the lack of evidence behind many popular myths that have persisted since the 1980s “war on drugs.” Frone’s comprehensive review covers nearly all of the related research conducted over the past 20-30 years, including several national studies and government reports as well as the broader research literature. In particular, Frone analyzes methodological limitations and the tendency of many science reporters to “go beyond the data” when interpreting results. Given the need for evidence-based management and policy, this book will be a comprehensive resource for researchers and practit...

Attachment-Based Family Therapy for Depressed Adolescents

Author: Guy S. Diamond, Gary M. Diamond, and Suzanne A. Levy

Offered by: American Psychological Association


Title Description

Attachment-Based Family Therapy (ABFT) is the only empirically supported family therapy model designed to treat adolescent depression. This book describes clinical strategies for therapists, as well as the theoretical basis of the approach and the evidence base that supports it. ABFT emerges from interpersonal theories that suggest adolescent depression and suicide can be precipitated, exacerbated, or buffered against by the quality of interpersonal relationships in families. ABFT organizes the therapy around tasks that repair interpersonal ruptures and rebuild an emotionally protective, secure-based, parent-child relationship. The treatment initially focuses on repairing or strengthening attachment and then turns to promoting adolescent autonomy.

Synthesizing Nurturance and Discipline for Optimal Child Development

Title Description

Psychologist Diana Baumrind's revolutionary prototype of parenting, called authoritative parenting, combines the best of various parenting styles. In contrast to previous emphases on parental responsiveness alone (permissive parenting) or on demandingness alone (authoritarian parenting), authoritative parenting combines high levels of both responsiveness and demandingness. The result is an appropriate mix of warm nurturance and firm discipline. In this book, leading scholars update our thinking about authoritative parenting and address three unresolved issues: mechanisms of the style’s effectiveness, variations of effectiveness across cultures, and untangling how parents influence children from how children influence them. By integrating perspectives from developmen...
