New Books added to PsycBooks database

The PsycBooks database added 5 contemporary books to the database last month and 20 classic books.  A complete list of the books is here

 The 5 contemporary books are described below:

Attachment in Group Psychotherapy  2013  By Cheri L. Marmarosh, PhD, Rayna D. Markin, PhD, and Eric B. Spiegel, PhD

“This book applies attachment theory to group psychotherapy, explaining how group therapists can effectively work with members of different attachment styles. By understanding the needs of each member based on his or her attachment style, the leader can best foster corrective emotional exchanges that challenge members' maladaptive beliefs about themselves and others.”

Building Psychological Resilience in Military Personnel: Theory and Practice  2013  Edited by Robert R. Sinclair, PhD, and Thomas W. Britt, PhD

“…Researchers have consistently identified resilience, a term derived from the psychological and psychiatric literature, as perhaps the single most important factor predicting successful outcomes for military personnel and their families.  In this book, editors Robert Sinclair and Thomas Britt and a distinguished group of researchers investigate the concept of resilience, its essential role in normal psychological development, and its relevance within various occupational contexts unique to the military.”

Families of Children With Developmental Disabilities: Understanding Stress and Opportunities for Growth  2013  By David W. Carroll, PhD

“This book surveys the most recent empirical research on families of children with disabilities and provides guidelines and strategies for the developmental and family psychologists who support these clients.”

Internet Sex Offenders  2013  By Michael C. Seto, PhD

“In this comprehensive, state-of-the science work, Michael C. Seto examines a wealth of research conducted over the last decade regarding the use and contribution of the internet to sexual crimes including the creation and dissemination of child pornography, and online and offline solicitation efforts leading to contact offenses such as rape and sexual assault.”

Strategic Decision Making in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy  2013  By Amy Wenzel, PhD

“This book describes strategic decision making, a flexible yet evidenced-based approach to working through decision points in order to move treatment forward in cognitive behavioral therapy. It dispels the myth that there is a single "right" therapeutic intervention that must be delivered in any one instance; in fact, many courses of action can facilitate change provided they are implemented strategically.”
