Quantitative Models in Psychology 2011 By Robert E. McGrath, PhD
This book presents a comprehensive survey of quantitative methods and concepts in psychology that covers everything needed at the graduate level and beyond, including generalizing from samples to populations, using measurement instruments to generate quantitative scales, and modeling real-world patterns and relationships.
Treating Patients With Alcohol and Other Drug Problems: An Integrated Approach, Second Edition 2011 By Robert D. Margolis, PhD and Joan E. Zweben, PhD
This new edition of the book seeks to enhance the confidence and skill of psychotherapists and other practitioners in addressing alcohol and drug use in the context of their ongoing work. It includes new material on individual psychotherapy and family therapy for clients with AOD problems, as well as an updated overview of the treatment community (both self-help and professional) that examines the basic assumptions and operating principles of various treatment venues in an effort to minimize the miscommunication that can occur when professionals from different "cultures" attempt to collaborate on client care.
Young Children With ADHD: Early Identification and Intervention 2011 By George J. DuPaul, PhD and Lee Kern, PhD
This book is the first to describe empirically-supported early intervention with children aged 2–5 years who have or are at risk for ADHD. The authors present a three-tiered model for prevention and intervention that can be implemented at home or in preschool settings. This promising model can be adjusted to the degree of difficulty the child is experiencing and consists of universal intervention strategies, small group skills instruction, and assessment-based behavioral interventions.
