New Books in PsycBooks

PsycBooks has added two contemporary titles to its database and 12 classic titles.  A full list of the added titles is available here.  The two contemporary books are described below:

 Cultural Adaptations: Tools for Evidence-Based Practice With Diverse Populations  2012  Edited by Guillermo Bernal, PhD and Melanie M. Domenech Rodríguez, PhD

“The unifying theoretical framework of this volume promotes culturally adapted EBPs as productive and empirically viable approaches to treating ethnic minorities and culturally diverse groups. Chapter authors describe cultural adaptations of conventional EBPs for a variety of psychological problems across a wide range of cultures and ethnicities — Latino/as, Chinese, African Americans, and American Indians among them.”

Research for the Public Good: Applying the Methods of Translational Research to Improve Human Health and Well-Being  2012  Edited by Elaine Wethington, PhD and Rachel E. Dunifon, PhD

 “This book demonstrates how emerging methods of translational research can be applied to important topics of interest to social and behavioral scientists. Accessible models and real-world case studies are provided to help bridge the gaps among research, policy, and practice.  Social and behavioral sciences now often contribute to public- and individual-level interventions that promote education, disease prevention, health care delivery, health care access, and more. This broader, more inclusive approach to translational research has gained popularity and been promoted by the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control, medical centers, and university programs.”
