Chris Kearney and Tim Trull's ABNORMAL PSYCHOLOGY AND LIFE: A DIMENSIONAL APPROACH provides students with a concise, contemporary, science-based view of psychopathology that emphasizes the individual first and the disorder second. Through consistent pedagogy featuring clinical cases and real first-person narratives, the text illuminates our understanding that abnormal behavior--rather than being either present or absent--exists in everyone to some degree on a continuum from normal to pathological. By highlighting this widely accepted dimensional view--which places the behavior of an individual at the forefront of clinical assessment, prevention, definition, and treatment--the text's goal is to encourage students to become intelligent consumers of mental health information. With its emphasis on assessment and treatment as well as prevention, the book gives students the tools necessary to understand the precursors of abnormal behavior, overcome the stigma associated with it, and identify the real people classified as exhibiting it.

In Betty Reid Soskin's 96 years of living, she has been a witness to a grand sweep of American history. When she was born in 1921, the lynching of African-Americans was a national disgrace, minstrel shows were the most popular American form of entertainment, women were looked at suspiciously by many for exercising their right to vote, and most African-Americans in the Deep South could not vote at all. From her great-grandmother, who had been enslaved until she was in her mid-20s, Betty heard stories of slavery and the difficult times for Black Folk that immediately followed. In her lifetime, Betty has seen the nation begin to break down its race and gender biases, watched it nearly split apart in the upheavals of the civil rights and Black Power eras, and, finally, lived long enough to witness both the election of an African-American president and the re-emergence of a militant, racist far right. But far more than being merely a witness, Betty Reid Soskin has been an active participant with so many other Americans in shaping the country as we know it now. The child of Louisiana Creole parents who refused to bow down to Southern discrimination, she was raised in the Black Bay Area community before the great westward migration of World War II. After working in the civilian homefront effort in the war years, she and her husband, Mel Reid, helped break down racial boundaries by moving into a white community east of the Oakland hills. There she raised four children--one openly gay, one developmentally disabled--while working to end the prejudices against the family that existed among many of her neighbors. With Mel, she opened up one of the first Bay Area record stores in Berkeley both owned by African-Americans and dedicated to the distribution of African-American music. Her community organizing activities eventually led her to work as a state legislative aid, helping to plan the innovative Rosie the Riveter National Park in Richmond, California, then to a "second" career at the Rosie Park as the oldest park ranger in the history of the National Park Service. In between, she used her talents as a singer and songwriter to interpret and chronicle the great social upheavals that marked the 1960s. In 2003, Betty displayed a new talent, writing, when she created the popular blog CBreaux Speaks. Now followed by thousands, her blog is a collection of Betty's sometimes fierce, sometimes gently persuasive, but always brightly honest story that weaves both the wisdom of the ages and the fresh enthusiasm of an always youthful mind into her long journey through an American and African-American life, as well as America's long struggle to both understand and cleanse its soul. Blending together selections from many of Betty's hundreds of blog entries with interviews, letters, and speeches collected throughout her long life, Sign My Name to Freedom invites readers into an American life through the words and thoughts of a national treasure who has never stopped looking at herself, the nation, or the world with fresh eyes.

We have come to understand that for many sexual abusers, treatment works -- if we can find the right combination of approaches. The points of view represented here support the urge of treatment providers to keep looking for more effective approaches, and provide a firm basis in current practice and the history of the field. Editors ans authors Mark Carich and Steven Mussack have created a reference that is practitionner-oriented and refuses to shy away from healthy disagreement. The Handbook for sexual abuser assessment and treatment provides the basic outline of treatment approaches and their justification -- the "how and why" of current practice. It is an invaluable resource for any agency treating sexual abusers and taking on new practitionners. Any debate engendered by this volume can only stimulate more effort, enhancing our ability to assist the sexual abusers entrusted to our care. Translating this opportunity into fewer victims in the future is what we are all about.

The first edition of this book was acclaimed as a practical, insightful and humane guide for professionals in mental health, social work and voluntary and government agencies who are concerned with the care of refugees and other victims of political and military violence. These professionals can develop feelings of irritation, disappointment and hopelessness when their work seems not to have the expected result. Successful counselling and therapy require empathy with such victims of traumatic events. But empathy must be based on, and combined with, expertise and knowledge that is both scientific and research-based, and focused on the special needs of these victims. This book is written from the first-hand experience of a world expert in this field, and provides A practical guide to clinical work with adult, child and adolescent victims A conceptual framework which places treatment in the context of the main therapeutic approaches A review of the research evidence that supports these methods of assessment and treatment Many clinical examples and a full consideration of the special problems of communication across cultures and language barriers Recognition of the special problems for professionals and volunteers dealing with these clients This new edition reflects the latest scientific and clinical work and knowledge, and will be essential for mental health professionals as well as for a wider readership of social, legal and administrative professionals who are concerned with the wellbeing of these victims. "A supremely accessible, comprehensive text on the effects of detention, torture, rape, exile, and culture shock, and how to understand and effectively help victims. It is also a vivid insight into traumatization and transgenerational suffering, and into transcultural and transtheoretical therapy. Harrowing yet timely, essential reading for frontline therapists and counsellors." —Colin Feltham, PhD, Sheffield Hallam University

Few of the excellent models that have been developed for working with trauma survivors take into account the complexity of an individual's unique background and experience. Even treatment for members of ""special groups"" often ignores the individual's multilayered identities - which may include age, social class, ethnicity, religious faith, sexual orientation, and immigrant status - in favor of a ""one-size-fits all"" approach.Drawing on her extensive clinical experience and the latest research, Laura Brown shows therapists how to become more sensitive to individual identity when working with clients who have suffered trauma. The author explains how culturally sensitive therapists draw upon multiple strategies for treating patients and are aware of both dominant group privilege and of their own identity and culture. The book has a practical focus and contains a variety of case studies illustrating how theoretical constructs can inform assessment and treatment.
