Описание: During the past several decades, interest in children’s psychological disorders has grown steadily within the research community, resulting in a burgeoning knowledge base. The majority of the attention and funding, not surprisingly, has focused on the more prevalent and well-known conditions. Although this raises the odds that young people with more well-known disorders such as ADHD, autism, and learning disorders will receive much-needed professional assessment and intervention, children with less frequently encountered disorders may experience a higher risk of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment. Useful data has been scattered throughout the literature for severe-but-less-frequent childhood psychological disorders, including: fire setting; gender identity disorder; impulse control disorders (i.e., kleptomania, trichotillomania, intermittent explosive disorder); selective mutism; Munchausen by proxy; childhood schizophrenia; gang involvement; sexual offending; self-injurious behavior; and feral children. This concise volume offers up-to-date information on these conditions, which, though relatively rare, may have profound effect not only on the children themselves but also their families, friends, and the community at large. Coverage of each disorder is presented in an accessible format covering:Overview and history.Description and diagnostic classification, with proposed changes to the DSM-V.Etiology and theory.Assessment tools and interview protocols.Commonly used psychological and pharmacological treatment options.Current research issues and directions for future investigation. Assessing and Treating Low Incidence/High Severity Psychological Disorders of Childhood is a must-have reference for researchers, clinicians, practitioners, and graduate students in clinical child and school psychology, pediatrics, psychiatry, social work, school counseling, education, and public policy.

This book draws on Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) - which focuses on resolving emotional and behavioural problems and disturbances and enables people to lead happier and more fulfilling lives - to provide an understanding of psychological health. Each chapter looks at an important aspect of psychological health and then discusses it in relation to the REBT approach.
Divided into two parts the book looks first at how people can remain psychologically healthy in the face of adversity and then goes on to discuss how these healthy philosophies underpin certain key areas of psychological health. As such, topics of discussion include:
Understanding Psychological Health will be of great interest to all therapists in both practice and training.
Описание: `Rofe'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 Rofe 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.
Описание: What do patients with obsessive compulsive disorder, insomnia, and schizophrenia have in common? This book proposes that these disorders share several important cognitive and behavioural processes. It argues that by studying what they have in common, we can find more effective methods of treatment. Presenting an important new 'transdiagnostic' (or across-disorders) approach for assessing and treating psychological disorders, this volume will be valuable for clinical psychologists and psychiatrists.
