Cognitive Behavioral Psychopharmacology Book Excerpt:

Outlines a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to coordinating psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic treatments Cognitive Behavioral Psychopharmacology takes an evidence-based approach to demonstrating the advantages of biopsychosocial integration in interventions for the major psychiatric diagnoses. It is the first and only book to translate the current evidence for cognitive behavioral, psychosocial, and pharmacologic approaches to mental health disorders into clear guidance for clinical practice. There is a burgeoning movement in mental health to acknowledge the entire person’s functioning across physical, psychological and social spheres, and to integrate medical as well as psychological and social interventions to address the entire spectrum of presenting problems. This book bridges a gap in the professional mental health literature on the subject of standalone versus combined treatment approaches. It reviews the current state of integrative care, and makes a strong case that optimal outcomes are best achieved by an awareness of how and why the cognitive-behavioral aspects of prescribed medical and psychological interventions influence treatment. Each disorder-specific chapter is authored by a prescriber and psychotherapist team who consider all the evidence around treatments and combinations, providing outcome conclusions and concise tables of recommended front-line interventions. Provides a biopsychsocial perspective that integrates the medical, psychotherapeutic, family, and community aspects of the therapeutic process Brings together and compares the current evidence for and against treatments that combine psychopharmacology and cognitive behavioral psychotherapy for major psychiatric diagnoses Outlines an evidence-based approach to determining which combination of treatments is most appropriate for each of the major psychiatric diagnoses Describes, in a way that is accessible to both prescribers and therapists, when and how cognitive behavioral therapy can be integrated into pharmacotherapy The book will appeal to a wide range of mental health professionals, including psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical social workers, licensed professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, and addictions counselors. It also will be of interest to primary care physicians and nurse practitioners who work side by side with mental health professionals.

Autism Book Excerpt:

Autism: A Practical Guide for Parents was written from the perspective of a father of children (now adults) with disabilities and who is also a licensed and certified psychologist and counselor. When parents are faced with serious medical problems in their children, they become very gullible to exaggerated claims of cure and unethical providers. The book contains substantial information about behavioral interventions to help mediate the behavioral concerns for children with autism, including an extensive reading list to help supplement the parents’ working knowledge and interventions. Also, a section is dedicated to various (and at times erroneous) interventions, including chelation, transcranial magnetic therapy, light therapy, and others. A research section is included to emphasize the importance of psychometric testing and review for the development of reliable and valid testing assessment vehicles. A psychological approach to the understanding of autism begins with a specific perspective of this challenge. First of all, children are children, including those children with autism. Second, you need to be educated about a broad spectrum of autism symptoms, including behavioral, medical, speech and language, and physical. Also, you need to join with a behavioral health team, including a psychologist, behavioral specialist, therapeutic staff support, and/or mobile therapist through your local managed care organization. Remember, you can help make positive behavioral and emotional health changes in your child to help him/her achieve a happy, healthy, and productive life. I have organized this book to be an easy read for parents and professionals. I’m sure you wouldn’t want to read about the abstract details of existential phenomenology, but would rather let me help you understand the details of autistic behavior from the viewpoint of a psychologist and father. I hope I have succeeded in this task!

The Silent Language of Psychotherapy Book Excerpt:

Therapeutic changes occur in many places, and among animals as well as humans. A theory that attempts to explain therapeutic changes should be based on principles that apply not only to those changes occurring during the hour, but also to those observed in the educational process, in interpersonal relations, and in the social milieu, as well as with animals. It would be desirable to discover principles broad enough to provide a deeper understanding of therapeutic change in this wide variety of situations. Experienced therapists appear to be similar in what they are doing, although they may disagree as to why they do it. In spite of the arguments about theoretical formulations, it can be observed that during an hour with a patient many psychotherapists may not follow their own theories too well. There probably is some relevance in a comparison of psychotherapy with a concept formation test: the subject gives the correct answers but is unable to state why he did so or what principles he followed in making his choices. The therapist, too, may help a patient but he is often uncertain as to "why" and "how." It is very likely that the effective principles in therapeutic work rest on processes that are more general than the specific principles advanced by different schools. This volume combines the elements of psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy in a theoretical system that focuses on the importance of patient-therapist interaction, especially in terms of the exchange of subtle or covert communication cues. In this significantly updated and expanded edition of their classic text, Beier and Young analyze recent developments in new areas of practice facing today's therapist: managed care and the clinical impact of the control of healthcare delivery; and biological intervention and other issues related to psychotropic medication.
