This is the golden age of cognitive therapy. Its popularity among society and the professional community is growing by leaps and bounds. What is it and what are its limits? What is the fundamental nature of cognitive therapy? It is, to my way of thinking, simple but profound. To understand it, it is useful to think back to the history of behavior therapy, to the basic development made by Joseph Wolpe. In the 1950s, Wolpe astounded the therapeutic world and infuriated his colleagues by finding a simple cure for phobias. The psychoanalytic establishment held that phobias-irrational and intense fear of certain objects, such as cats-were just surface manifesta tions of deeper, underlying disorders. The psychoanalysts said their source was the buried fear in male children of castration by the father in retaliation for the son's lust for his mother. For females, this fear is directed toward the opposite sex parent. The biomedical theorists, on the other hand, claimed that some as yet undiscovered disorder in brain chemistry must be the underlying problem. Both groups insisted that to treat only the patient's fear of cats would do no more good than it would to put rouge over measles. Wolpe, however, reasoned that irrational fear of something isn't just a symptom of a phobia; it is the whole phobia.

Using cases taken from the authors' case files or from case files of other working clinicians, this casebook portrays the rich and arresting nature of disorders as they are displayed in real people. Cases illustrate every major DSM-IV category and are followed by a therapy outcome section which gives the "rest of the story" of what happened to these clients. The authors draw on an extremely current and thorough database, look at the multiple causes of disorders, and incorporate developmental and cultural issues in each case. Two complex cases are included without a diagnosis to give students an opportunity to come up with diagnoses on their own.

Short, enjoyable, and easy-to-read, this uplifting book delivers a powerful message and unique perspective on special education. It explores the world of special education from the point-of-view of people who love what they do, presenting necessary basic information with enthusiasm, and showing just how rewarding such work can be. The authors emphasize the normalcy of exceptional individuals and the imperative to include them in everyday life at home, at school, at work, and in the community. While acknowledging that this field includes sadness and pain, the authors nevertheless take readers past those feelings to share with them the joy that comes from helping individuals reach their fullest potential, whatever that may be. The focus of the book is to explain: 1) what makes people exceptional and 2) what does one need to know to understand exceptionality. For future special education teachers.

Casebook of Clinical Neuropsychology

Casebook of Clinical Neuropsychology features actual clinical neuropsychological cases drawn from leading experts' files. Each chapter represents a different case completed by a different expert. Cases cover the lifespan from child, to adult, to geriatric, and the types of cases will represent a broad spectrum of prototypical cases of well-known and well-documented disorders as well as some rarer disorders. Chapter authors were specifically chosen for their expertise with particular disorders. When a practitioner is going to see a child or an adult with "X" problem, they can turn to the "case" and find up to date critical information to help them understand the issues related to the diagnosis, a brief synopsis of the literature, the patient's symptom presentation, the evaluation including neuropsychological test results and other results from consultants, along with treatments and recommendations. Clinical cases represent a long-established tradition as a teaching vehicle in the clinical sciences, most prominently in medicine and psychology. Case studies provide the student with actual clinical material - data in the form of observations of the patient, examination/test data, relevant history, and related test results - all of which must be integrated into a diagnostic conclusion and ultimately provide the patient with appropriate recommendations. Critical to this educational/heuristic process is the opportunity for the reader to view the thought processes of the clinician that resulted in the conclusions and recommendations offered. With the science of the disorder as the foundation of this process, readers learn how the integration of multiple sources of data furthers critical thinking skills.

School refusal behavior is a common and difficult problem facing parents of children and teenagers. The behavior can have severe consequences by contributing to a child's academic, social, and psychological problems. A child's absence from school can also significantly increase family conflict. If your child experiences anxiety or noncompliance about attending school and has trouble remaining in classes for an entire day, this workbook, and the corresponding Therapist Guide, can help. This Parent Workbook is designed to help you work with a qualified therapist to resolve your child's school refusal behavior. The Workbook outlines four possible treatment procedures that may be prescribed by a therapist, depending on your child's reasons for refusing school. Scientific evidence has shown these programs to be highly effective in treating youth 5-17 years old who exhibit school refusal behavior. Regardless of whether your child refuses school to relieve school-related distress, to avoid negative social situations at school, to receive attention from you or another family member, or to obtain tangible rewards outside of school, the flexible treatments described in this book will help you and your child overcome school refusal behavior. The Workbook describes what you can expect during your child's assessment and treatment and provides answers to questions you may have about the process. It also provides instructions for continuing certain aspects of the program at home, including relaxation and breathing techniques, as well as exposure exercises to decrease your childs anxiety. Instructions are also given for completing daily logbooks with your child to track progress, creating a morning routine to keep you both on schedule, and developing written contracts to enhance attendance and discourage nonattendance. With this user-friendly manual, you can take an active role in your childs successful return to school.

DSM-5® Casebook and Treatment Guide for Child Mental Health updates the previous companion to DSM-IV-TR with new cases and advances from DSM-5 and evidence-based assessment and treatment in child and adolescent mental health. The book presents 29 cases written by experts in the field to provide readers with realistic examples of the types of patients that clinicians encounter in practice. Each case is accompanied by two commentaries from leading clinicians (including child and adolescent psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, developmental behavioral pediatricians and nurses), who provide their perspective on diagnostic formulation and treatment recommendations, focusing either on psychotherapy or psychopharmacology. Experts draw from a combination of evidence-based assessment and interventions, biopsychosocial approaches, a systems perspective, and commonsense thinking. Thus each chapter provides an opportunity to see how field leaders would approach the diagnosis and treatment of a child or adolescent. The collaboration among the case authors and commentators yields an approach that is flexible and expansive enough to be of help to clinicians of varied disciplines working in child and adolescent mental health. Down-to-earth and engaging, DSM-5® Casebook and Treatment Guide for Child Mental Health is a rich repository of clinical wisdom that seasoned practitioners, clinicians early in training, and child and adolescent psychiatrists studying for their board exams will find extremely useful.
