Accessible to a broad audience, this volume brings mainstream health psychology concepts to bear on the problems of international health and cross-cultural issues to bear on concepts and theories in mainstream health psychology. It also incorporates a number of pedagogical featuresùcase vignettes, problem solving/debate exercises, case studiesùwhich make it an ideal supplemental text for courses in health psychology. Students will appreciate the extended case studies, while instructors will value the multidisciplinary perspective. A thought-provoking examination of the state of knowledge about health in developing countries, Health Psychology in Global Perspective is a valuable resource for academics and professionals in health psychology, psychology, cross-cultural psychology, clinical psychology, social psychology, anthropology, and public health.

Childhood Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Book Excerpt:

A complex, puzzling disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is characterized by a child's or teenager's obsessions with contamination, object hoarding, and exact orderliness and compulsions involving rituals of washing, cleaning, checking and rechecking, or counting. Childhood Obsessive Compulsive Disorder draws on the most up-to-date research available to provide a comprehensive overview of this problem, from diagnosis through treatment. Authors Greta Francis and Rod A. Gragg first describe childhood and adolescent OCD in its various forms and discuss the etiology and epidemiology of OCD. They also explore assessment methods and their usefulness in research and practice, and both pharmacological and psychosocial treatments. In addition, intriguing case examples of this enigmatic disorder, measurement scales for it, and a manual for cognitive-behavioral treatment make this book a vital guide for clinicians. Consolidated into one integral volume, the information on diagnosing and treating children with OCD presented here will be invaluable to students, professionals, and researchers in clinical/counseling psychology, developmental psychology, nursing, behavioral psychology, and social work.

The Rationality of Psychological Disorders Book Excerpt:

`Rofé's book is a unique scientific contribution to the understanding of psychopathological phenomena. He does more to unravel the mystery of the underlying causes of psychological disorders than we've seen in a long time. His book The Rationality of Psychological Disorders is a `true endeavor that presents a definite challenge to the scientific community of Psychology'. This book is a must-read for scientists, mental health professionals and others who search for the logic and rationale in the irrational and bizarre.' Elizabeth F. Loftus, University of Washington, Past President, American Psychological Society. `The notion of repression is crucial to many psychological theories, but serious questions have been raised about it. Indeed, some investigators have questioned whether repression even exists. In this book, Professor Rofé offers provocative ideas concerning repression and its role in psychopathology in general. His ideas merit attention and I can highly recommend his book for both researchers and clinicians.' David S. Holmes, Chancellor and Distinguished Professor, University of Kansas.
