 The Best Within Us: Positive Psychology Perspectives on Eudaimonia  2013  Edited by Alan S. Waterman, PhD

“The Best Within Us assembles a panel of distinguished scholars whose work has been central to understanding positive aspects of psychological functioning. Together, the chapters explore the many ways in which the philosophic concept of eudaimonia is being employed in psychology.”

 Neuropsychological Assessment and Intervention for Youth: An Evidence-Based Approach to Emotional and Behavioral Disorders  2013  Edited by Linda A. Reddy, PhD; Adam S. Weissman, PhD; and James B. Hale, PhD

“Many recent books in clinical psychology with children and adolescents have highlighted the use of neuropsychological assessment, neuroscience, and clinical interventions for complex developmental and neurological disorders — but not for the most common behavioral disorders that present in this young population. Neuropsychological Assessment and Intervention for Youth serves to fill this significant void in the professional literature.  This comprehensive text translates basic brain science into empirically-supported clinical assessments and interventions for children. Co-editors Reddy, Weissman, and Hale — all first-rate clinical researchers — selected the emotional and behavioral disorders examined in each chapter based on their high prevalence in children and adolescents (e.g., OCD, ADHD, anxiety disorders, conduct disorders, etc.).” 

That's So Gay!: Microaggressions and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community  2013  By Kevin L. Nadal, PhD

“In this book, Kevin Nadal provides a thought-provoking review of the literature on discrimination and microaggressions toward LGBT people. The generous use of case examples makes the book ideal for gender studies courses and discussion groups. Each case is followed by analysis of the elements involved in microaggressions and discussion questions for the reader to reflect upon.”
