Handbook Of Professional Ethics For Psychologists from the Author: William O'Donohue. Designed to fill a gap in the literature on professional ethics for psychologists, this book covers topics typically neglected in existing books, being more radical and controversial than much of the literature in this area. Rather than take ethical pronouncements associated with some organizations as dogma not to be questioned but simply understood and observed, the editors of this Handbook have encouraged a questioning, critical attitude. This book is therefore in part an attempt to push harder on the ethical impulse in psychologists, pushing beyond `comfort zones' to encourage positions of moral leadership.

Treating Childhood Psychopathology And Developmental Disabilities from the Author: Johnny L. Matson. Child psychology is a constantly expanding field, with dozens of specialized journals devoted to major disorders springing up in recent years. With so much information available – and the prospect of overload inevitable – researchers and clinicians alike need to navigate the knowledge base with as much confidence as they do the nuances of diagnosis and their young clients’ complex social, emotional, and developmental worlds. Treating Childhood Psychopathology and Developmental Disabilities fills this need by summarizing and critiquing evidence-based treatment methods for pediatric patients from infancy through adolescence. After a concise history of evidence-based treatment, promising new trends, and legal/ethical issues involved in working with young people, well-known professors, practitioners, and researchers present the latest data in key areas of interest, including: (1) Cognitive-behavioral therapy and applied behavior analysis. (2) The effects of parenting in treatment outcomes. (3) Interventions for major childhood pathologies, including ADHD, PTSD, phobias, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and conduct disorder. (4) Interventions for autistic spectrum disorders and self-injuring behaviors. (5) Techniques for improving communication, language, and literacy in children with developmental disabilities. (6) Treatments for feeding and eating disorders. This comprehensive volume is an essential resource for the researcher’s library and the clinician’s desk as well as a dependable text for graduate and postgraduate courses in clinical child, developmental, and school psychology. (A companion volume, Assessing Childhood Psychopathology and Developmental Disabilities, is also available.)

Offenders With Developmental Disabilities from the Author: William R. Lindsay. For over a century, developmental disabilities have been associated with crime in prejudicial and pejorative contexts. Offenders with Developmental Disabilities provides a balanced, comprehensive review of the prevalence, nature and development of offending by those with intellectual disabilities. Not only does this volume include coverage of evidence-based assessment and treatment ideas, strategies and plans, but also places the field in a historical, legal and ethical context. William Lindsay, John Taylor and Peter Sturmey have brought together a wealth of contributors from differing backgrounds to share new material and knowledge of assessments, treatment, and service issues in a single volume. Divided into five parts, Part I opens with theoretical issues; Part II deals with legal and services contexts including ethical concerns; Part III considers risk assessment, general assessment and approaches to evaluation; Part IV addresses specific issues of sexual offending, anger and aggression, fire raising, dual diagnosis, female offenders and personality disorder; Part V concludes with service development, professional and research issues. Forensic practitioners and students from psychology and psychiatry, lawyers and advocates, nurses and social workers will all find this comprehensive and practical book an inspiration in taking this field forward.
