Balancing developmental, clinical-diagnostic, and experimental approaches to child and adolescent psychopathology, Eric Mash and David Wolfe's ABNORMAL CHILD PSYCHOLOGY is one of the most up-to-date, authoritative, and comprehensive books in its market.

The seventh edition is organized to reflect DSM-5 categories, dimensional approaches to classification, and evidence-based assessment and treatment approaches. The authors trace developmental pathways for each disorder and show how child and adolescent psychopathology involves biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors interacting with a youth's environment. Case histories, examples, and first-person accounts illustrate the categorical and dimensional approaches used to describe disorders.

The authors also consistently illustrate how troubled children behave in their natural settings: homes, schools, and communities.

Going beyond simply describing different schools of thought on psychological disorders, the authors explore the interactions of the various forces, both global ones and those unique to South Africa and Africa, that contribute to psychopathology. Furthermore, this South African edition includes a perspective on positive psychology and well-being in the context of psychopathology.

The third edition of this book, previously published as Abnormal Psychology revised second edition, presents South African debates and data to ensure that it is relevant to the local context. In addition, research from the rest of Africa has been integrated into the book to show how other countries in our region are grappling with topical issues.

This book is aimed at second- and third-year students following courses in Psychopathology or Abnormal Psychology as part of a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Social Sciences degree at Universities. It has been written by academics and practitioners from across South Africa.

What Happened To You? - Conversations On Trauma, Resilience And Healing (Hardcover): Bruce D. Perry, Oprah Winfrey What Happened To You? - Conversations On Trauma, Resilience And Healing (Hardcover)
Bruce D. Perry, Oprah Winfrey
R521 R434 Discovery Miles 4 340 Save R87 (17%) Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Oprah Winfrey and renowned brain development and trauma expert, Dr. Bruce Perry, discuss the impact of trauma and adverse experiences and how healing must begin with a shift to asking, “what happened to you?” rather than “what’s wrong with you?”

Through wide-ranging, and often deeply personal conversation, Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Perry explore how what happens to us in early childhood – both good and bad - influences the people we become. They challenge us to shift from focusing on, “What’s wrong with you?” or “Why are you behaving that way?,” to asking, “What happened to you?” This simple change in perspective can open up a new and hopeful understanding for millions about why we do the things we do, why we are the way we are, providing a road map for repairing relationships, overcoming what seems insurmountable, and ultimately living better and more fulfilling lives.

Many of us experience adversity and trauma during childhood that has lasting impact on our physical and emotional health. And as we’re beginning to understand, we are more sensitive to developmental trauma as children than we are as adults. ‘What happened to us’ in childhood is a powerful predictor of our risk for physical and mental health problems down the road, and offers scientific insights in to the patterns of behaviors so many struggle to understand.

A survivor of multiple childhood challenges herself, Oprah Winfrey shares portions of her own harrowing experiences because she understands the vulnerability that comes from facing trauma at a young age. Throughout her career, Oprah has teamed up with Dr. Bruce Perry, one of the world’s leading experts on childhood trauma. He has treated thousands of children, youth, and adults and has been called on for decades to support individuals and communities following high-profile traumatic events. Now, Oprah joins forces with Dr. Perry to marry the power of storytelling with the science and clinical experience to better understand and overcome the effects of trauma.

In conversation throughout the book, the two focus on understanding people, behavior, and ourselves in the context of personal experiences. They remove blame and self-shaming, and open up a space for healing and understanding. It’s a subtle but profound shift in our approach to trauma, and it’s one that allows us to understand our pasts in order to clear a path to our future - opening the door to resilience and healing in a proven, powerful way.

Grounded in the latest brain science and brought to life through compelling narratives, this book shines a light on a much-needed path to recovery – showing us our incredible capacity to transform after adversity.

An instruction manual for life, love, and relationships by a brilliant young scientist whose Asperger's syndrome allows her--and us--to see ourselves in a different way...and to be better at being human Diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at the age of eight, Camilla Pang struggled to understand the world around her. Desperate for a solution, she asked her mother if there was an instruction manual for humans that she could consult. With no blueprint to life, Pang began to create her own, using the language she understands best: science. That lifelong project eventually resulted in An Outsider's Guide to Humans, an original and incisive exploration of human nature and the strangeness of social norms, written from the outside looking in--which is helpful to even the most neurotypical thinker. Camilla Pang uses a set of scientific principles to examine life's everyday interactions: - How machine learning can help us sift through data and make more rational decisions - How proteins form strong bonds, and what they teach us about embracing individual differences to form diverse groups - Why understanding thermodynamics is the key to seeking balance over seeking perfection - How prisms refracting light can keep us from getting overwhelmed by our fears and anxieties, breaking them into manageable and separate "wavelengths" Pang's unique perspective of the world tells us so much about ourselves--who we are and why we do the things we do--and is a fascinating guide to living a happier and more connected life.

By 2016, it was impossible to ignore an international resurgence of xenophobia. What had happened? Looking for clues, psychiatrist and historian George Makari started out in search of the idea's origins. To his astonishment, he discovered an unfolding series of never-told stories. While a fear and hatred of strangers may be ancient, he found that the notion of a dangerous bias called "xenophobia" arose not so long ago. Coined by late-nineteenth-century doctors and political commentators and popularized by an eccentric stenographer, xenophobia emerged alongside Western nationalism, colonialism, mass migration, and genocide. Makari chronicles the concept's rise, from its popularization and perverse misuse to its spread as an ethical principle in the wake of a series of calamites that culminated in the Holocaust, and its sudden reappearance in the twenty-first century. He investigates xenophobia's evolution through the writings of figures such as Joseph Conrad, Albert Camus, and Richard Wright, and innovators like Walter Lippmann, Sigmund Freud, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, and Frantz Fanon. Weaving together history, philosophy, and psychology, Makari offers insights into varied, related ideas such as the conditioned response, the stereotype, projection, the Authoritarian Personality, the Other, and institutional bias. Masterful, original, and elegantly written, Of Fear and Strangers offers us a unifying paradigm by which we might more clearly comprehend how irrational anxiety and contests over identity sweep up groups and lead to the dark headlines of division so prevalent today.

Increase the efficacy of your treatment interventions in intercultural couples therapy The Intercultural Exeter Couples Model: Making Connections for a Divided World Through Systemic-Behavioral Therapy provides practitioners with a thorough guide to effectively treating intercultural couples. The book consists of a systematic effort to translate systemic ideas that take into account a cultural perspective into a highly useable and practical form. The Intercultural Exeter Couples Model also attempts to marry two, often distinct, forms of practice: the systemic and the behavioral. Both approaches have much to contribute to effective couples' counselling but they are often theoretically siloed. This book demonstrates the value of using both approaches simultaneously. This book provides concrete and practical strategies for implementing systemic and behavioral approaches to intercultural couples' therapy in a manner consistent with clinical best practice. Rather than ignoring the significant and complex impacts that differing cultures can have on a relationship, The Intercultural Exeter Couple Model puts those differences front and center, encouraging the therapist to engage with the cultural mismatch that can be at the core of many couples' ongoing friction. The book's chapters tackle both the model itself and a variety of interventions, covering topics including: Teaching couples how to break patterns and prepare them to establish new ones Training couples to communicate effectively Establishing new modes of behavior in couples An explanation of empathic bridging maneuvers A description of the use of life-space explorations Perfect for clinicians, students, and professors interested in or practicing in the field of couples' therapy, The Intercultural Exeter Couples Model provides readers with an in-depth exploration of an increasingly important model of couples therapy and describes, in painstaking detail, the interventions necessary to achieve positive patient outcomes.

A Journey Toward Understanding, Active Treatment, and Societal Prevention of Trauma Imagine, if you will, a disease--one that has only subtle outward symptoms but can hijack your entire body without notice, one that transfers easily between parent and child, one that can last a lifetime if untreated. According to Dr. Paul Conti, this is exactly how society should conceptualize trauma: as an out-of-control epidemic with a potentially fatal prognosis. In Trauma: The Invisible Epidemic, Dr. Conti examines the most recent research, clinical best practices, and dozens of real-life stories to present a deeper and more urgent view of trauma. Not only does Dr. Conti explain how trauma affects the body and mind, he also demonstrates that trauma is transmissible among close family and friends, as well as across generations and within vast demographic groups. With all this in mind, Trauma: The Invisible Epidemic proposes a course of treatment for the seemingly untreatable. Here, Dr. Conti traces a step-by-step series of concrete changes that we can make both as individuals and as a society to alleviate trauma's effects and prevent further traumatization in the future. You will discover: - The different post-trauma syndromes, how they are classified, and their common symptoms - An examination of how for-profit health care systems can inhibit diagnosis and treatment of trauma - How social crises and political turmoil encourage the spread of group trauma - Methods for confronting and managing your fears as they arise in the moment - How trauma disrupts mental processes such as memory, emotional regulation, and logical decision-making - The argument for a renewed humanist social commitment to mental health and wellness It's only when we understand how a disease spreads and is sustained that we are able to create its ultimate cure. With Trauma: The Invisible Epidemic, Dr. Conti reveals that what we once considered a lifelong, unbeatable mental illness is both treatable and preventable.

Auf internationaler Ebene, so seitens politischer Entscheidungstrager, Klinikern und A rzten, Graduierten und Laien, wachst das Interesse an der Bindungstheorie. Dennoch werden die Publikationen fA1/4hrender Forscher und auch wichtige theoretische und empirische Abhandlungen haufig kaum gelesen oder verstanden. Grundsatztexte sind nicht direkt zuganglich. Die Theorie wird haufig missverstanden, auch von Praktikern in ihrer taglichen Arbeit. Hinzu kommt, dass die Bindungstheorie mitunter falsch angewandt wird. ZurA1/4ckzufA1/4hren ist dies teilweise auf den Umstand, dass Grundsatztexte in Zeitschriften erscheinen, die nicht frei zuganglich ist, oder in BA1/4chern veroeffentlicht werden, die Klinikern und interessierten Lesern nicht prasent oder die zu teuer sind. Dieses Buch soll zum einen pragnant und zuganglich sein, zum anderen die Bindungstheorie auf interessante Weise, aktuell und mit all ihren Facetten prasentieren. Es enthalt Nachdrucke sorgfaltig ausgewahlter Buchkapitel und Zeitungsartikel sowie bislang unveroeffentlichtes Material des BegrA1/4nders der Bindungstheorie.
