The Adult years : continuity and change( Book )

15 editions published between 1989 and 1994 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Adult Years: Continuity and Change"--The baby-boom generation is now entering middle age and is only two decades away from the retirement years. The fastest-growing segment of our population consists of those over age 85. We are living longer and there are more of us every year. Is psychology ready to serve an aging and aged population? Is the training available in geropsychology adequate? Do we know enough about not just psychology but also about biology and the social processes with which the older adult is most concerned? The chapters in this volume address these and other questions of importance in psychological practice with the older adult. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)

Neuropsychological assessment of dementia and depression in older adults : a clinician's guide by Martha Storandt( Book )

18 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two of the most common psychological disorders of later life are dementia and depression. The diagnosis of these conditions presents a challenge to clinicians because the symptoms of depression and dementia often overlap; in addition, the symptoms of either of these disorders in their early stages may be attributed to the normal effects of aging. /// [This book] reviews the most up-to-date research on the diagnosis of dementia and depression [in older adults] and offers concrete recommendations for evaluating this unique population. /// The contributors to this volume, all experts in the psychological assessment of older adults, give clinicians and practitioners clear and practical guidance on differentiating psychological disorders from normal events in the aging process, identifying symptoms of depression and symptoms of dementia, performing differential assessment of dementia and depression, determining legal competency of older adults, providing clinical interpretations to clients and their families, and applying assessment to therapy and interventions.

Cataclysms, crises, and catastrophes : psychology in action( Book )

16 editions published between 1987 and 1991 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although by no means definitive, the information that clinical practitioners, community psychologists, applied social psychologists, health psychologists, and others will find in these chapters will provide a broad view of current understandings of how catastrophic events affect individuals and groups and of how human beings adapt and can be helped to adapt to the resulting stresses. The chapters in this volume provide insight into the effects of disasters resulting from technological accidents as well as natural disasters, crime and terrorism, violence against women, suicide, and irrevocable losses resulting from death, illness, and other life events. The chapters in this volume illustrate why an interaction between theory and practice, between a firm foundation in knowledge and basic human understanding, is so vital. They also illustrate how psychologists help individuals under stress confront, understand, and grow beyond not only the ordinary stresses they must face each day, but also the extraordinary stresses that today arise so often and so suddenly as a result of both natural disasters (such as volcanoes, floods, and fires) and humanmade disasters (such as toxic spills and acts of violence, crime, and terrorism)"--Preface.

In each lecture, the task of the presenter was to discuss historical aspects of an applied psychology field and to draw contemporary relevance from its history"--Preface.

Psychopharmacology : basic mechanisms and applied interventions( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psychologists are among the leaders in the laboratory and clinical investigation of drug-neurochemistry-behavior-environment interactions. Diagnosis and treatment of disorders requiring treatment with drugs, or resulting from drug abuse, are parallel critical areas of activity for psychologists. The lectures presented in this volume touch on several of these important and varied topics. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
Psychology in litigation and legislation( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the first Master Lectures in Psychology focusing on psychology and law were given more than a decade ago (Scheirer & Hammonds, 1983), interest in using psychological knowledge, and in involving psychologists in the legal process, has continued to grow. It is appropriate, therefore, that another volume in the Master Lecture in Psychology series be devoted to the interface of psychology and law. But in doing so, it was necessary to limit the coverage to manageable terrain. The field today encompasses concerns ranging from environmental policy (e.g., Pitt & Zube, 1987; Ribe, 1989) to mental health policy (e.g., Shah & Sales, 1991; Tor & Sales, in press) and from sexual harassment in the workplace (e.g., Gutek & O'Connor, in press) to psychological distress in law students and lawyers (e.g., Benjamin, Darling, & Sales, 1990; Benjamin, Kaszniak, Sales, & Shanfield, 1986). Thus, the Master Lecture Series, and the chapters in this volume, can no more cover all of the major issues in psychology and law than they could cover all of the issues in any other major subfield of psychology (e.g., clinical psychology, social psychology). The decision was made, therefore, to focus on a range of critical issues that have been raised by the intersection of psychology with two of the most visible legal systems--the courts and legislatures--and with two critical legal processes--adjudication and the creation of legislation. Because the Master Lectures in Psychology and the ensuing publications are typically limited to five presentations, this volume cannot cover the full range of issues even in this subdomain. On the other hand, the topics selected for inclusion admirably raise fundamental issues that should be of concern to psychologists who interact with lawyers, judges, and juries in litigation and who interact with legislators in drafting legislation. Relevance of Psychological Science to Litigation and Legislation Litigation provides an opportunity for parties to resolve a dispute when less adversarial means have failed. Because it often involves disagreement over what the true facts that are involved in a case may be, the resolution of this issue can constitute an important part of the trial"--Preface.

Psychology and national health insurance : a sourcebook( Book )

9 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book attempts to deal with critical issues while they are still being discussed and before final national decisions are made. The various aspects of national health insurance--scientific, professional, social responsibility, and training--will become, in our opinion, controversial and critical issues for psychology in the coming decade or two. This book should be of interest to a substantial proportion of psychologists, since it deals with evaluative, scientific, and consumer issues in addition to areas of professional concern. /// Our intent was to sample the flavor of the national discussion and include divergent points of view where controversy existed, to stimulate psychologists into some consideration of the emerging issues in this critical field, and to provide nonpsychologists and other decision makers with some sense of what psychology has to offer.

Dialectical behavior therapy for adolescents with multiple problems( Visual )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Adolescents With Multiple Problems, Alec L. Miller demonstrates this compassionate, principle-based therapy for clients who have difficulty regulating emotions and behaviors. Emotional dysregulation is common among adolescents, often leading them to self-injurious behavior, including suicide. Studies have shown that dialectical behavior therapy can significantly reduce suicide attempts and help adolescent clients deal with multiple problems. In this session, Dr. Miller works with a 17-year-old boy who is depressed, abusing marijuana, and who has recently contemplated suicide. Dr. Miller highlights the client's strengths while trying to obtain commitment to treatment in order to reduce his depression and marijuana use and build a life worth living. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a compassionate, principle-based psychotherapy for suicidal multiproblem, multidiagnostic individuals who have significant difficulty regulating emotions and behaviors. Developed by Marsha Linehan, DBT was first introduced over a dozen years ago as a treatment for suicidal and self-injurious individuals diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD)"--Container
Psychology and the older adult : challenges for training in the 1980s : proceedings of the Conference on Training Psychologists for Work in Aging, Boulder, Colorado, June 14-18, 1981 by John F Santos( Book )

10 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The task of this conference is to develop a set of policy recommendations to guide our discipline in the coming years as we strive to prepare psychologists to work with older people. It is rare for any discipline to have the opportunity to draw upon such immensely varied expertise as that gathered here this week to formalize such a statement. Seven major topics were addressed by about 100 participants in separate work groups of approximately 13-15 persons, made up of psychologists in general, geropsychologists, nonpsychology gerontologists, and consumers--including agency representatives, students, and elderly persons. The group topics included training; curriculum; continuing education, retraining, and in-service education; recruitment and retention; services and settings; psychosocial knowledge base; and biopsychological knowledge base. Over a 5-day period, the groups discussed their assigned topics with the goal of formulating recommendations that would address significant aspects of the topics and provide action plans by which the recommendations could be realized.
