TitleExperts in Science and Society
Author(s)Kurz-Milcke, Elke;Gigerenzer, Gerd
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer US, 2004.
DescriptionVIII, 314 p. 19 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteIn today's complex world, we have come to rely increasingly on those who have expertise in specific areas and can bring their knowledge to bear on crucial social, political and scientific questions. Taking the viewpoint that experts are consulted when there is something important at stake for an individual, a group, or society at large, Experts in Science and Society explores expertise as a relational concept. How do experts balance their commitment to science with that to society? How does a society actually determine that a person has expertise? What personal traits are valued in an expert? From where does the expert derive authority? What makes new forms of expertise emerge? These and related questions are addressed from a wide range of areas in order to be inclusive, as well as to demonstrate similarities across areas. Likewise, in order to be culturally comparative, this volume includes examples and discussions of experts in different countries and even in different time periods. The topics include the roles of political experts, scientific experts, medical experts, legal experts, and more

TitleThe Challenge of Cognitive Therapy : Applications to Nontraditional Populations
Author(s)Vallis, T. Michael;Howes, Janice L;Miller, Philip C
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer US, 1991.
DescriptionXII, 186 p : online resource
Abstract NoteCognitive therapy is fast becoming one of the more popular and well?? respected forms of psychotherapy. In both research and clinical practice, several advantages of cognitive therapy have been identified. Cognitive therapy is structured enough to provide a therapeutic framework for clinicians, as well as a theoretical framework for clinical researchers, yet flexible enough to address an individual's problems in a highly idio?? syncratic manner. Accompanying the popularity of cognitive therapy is the expansion of its application beyond the areas in which it was initially developed and validated (the "traditional" areas of depression and anx?? iety) to areas where validation has not yet occurred (the "nontraditional" areas). We strongly believe that such broadening of cognitive therapy should be encouraged, but that conceptual models to guide the therapist and researcher in these areas should be explicated. It is the purpose of this text to provide a conceptual framework for dealing with select, nontraditional populations. The idea and motivation for this text develops from a cognitive therapy interest group in Toronto. All of the authors contributing to this text are involved in this group. We represent a group of cognitive thera?? pists functioning in a variety of diverse settings, including clinical re?? search units, general hospital settings, private or public rehabilitation centers, and private practices. Thus, the diversity of referrals for cogni?? tive therapy within our group is great

TitleHandbook of Assessment in Childhood Psychopathology : Applied Issues in Differential Diagnosis and Treatment Evaluation
Author(s)Frame, Cynthia L;Matson, Johnny L
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer US, 1987.
DescriptionXVIII, 688 p : online resource
Abstract NoteOne of the most important practical problems in child psychology and psychia?? try is the differential diagnosis of emotional disorders. Until recently, the gener?? al mode of assessment had been to apply to children the characteristics of psychopathology that were evident in adults. In addition, there had been few assessment tools available for use with children aside from modified versions of adult instruments. Understandably, this approach was controversial, and dissat?? isfaction with it led to the more recent knowledge that adult and child problems may be manifested quite differently. The third edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders takes these factors into account much more extensively than previous editions. Furthermore, a great deal of research on methodology in child assessment procedures has emerged recently. Yet, in spite of these advances, practicing clinicians are still frequently at a loss in moving from the characteristics of the disturbed child before them to the final assign?? ment of a psychiatric diagnosis. The focus of this book is to outline the various methods of viewing and categorizing the wide range childhood psycho?? pathology, with special emphasis on the end product of making a differential diagnosis. Our goal was to make this book unique in several ways. First, we attempted to cover a wider range of disorders than is typical in currently available hand?? books

TitleTherapeutic Change : An Object Relations Perspective
Author(s)Blatt, Sidney J;Ford, Richard Q
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer US, 1994.
DescriptionXXVIII, 300 p : online resource
Abstract NoteDynamic psychotherapy research has become revitalized, especially in the last three decades. This major study by Sidney Blatt, Richard Ford, and their associates evaluates long-term intensive treatment (hospital?? ization and 4-times-a-week psychotherapy) of very disturbed patients at the Austen Riggs Center. The center provides a felicitous setting for recovery-beautiful buildings on lovely wooded grounds just off the quiet main street of the New England town of Stockbridge, Massa?? chusetts. The center, which has been headed in succession by such capable leaders as Robert Knight, Otto Will, Daniel Schwartz, and now Edward Shapiro, has been well known for decades for its type of inten?? sive hospitalization and psychotherapy. Included in its staff have been such illustrious contributors as Erik Erikson, David Rapaport, George Klein, and Margaret Brenman. The Rapaport-Klein study group has been meeting there yearly since Rapaport's death in 1960. Although the center is a long-term care treatment facility, it remains successful and solvent even in these days of increasingly short-term treatment. Sidney Blatt, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at Yale Univer?? sity, and Richard Ford of the Austen Riggs Center, and their associates assembled a sample of 90 patients who had been in long-term treatment and who had been given (initially and at 15 months) a set of psychologi?? cal tests, including the Rorschach, the Thematic Apperception Test, a form of the Wechsler Intelligence Test, and the Human Figure Drawings

TitleChildhood Aggression and Violence : Sources of Influence, Prevention, and Control
Author(s)Crowell, David H;Evans, Ian M;O'Donnell, Clifford R
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer US, 1987.
DescriptionXVIII, 299 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThe conference on which this volume is based was one of a series of symposia initiated by the Department of Psychology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa on the theory and research surrounding topics of interest to the faculty and germane to the Hawaiian community. In order to encourage interaction around specific themes, the symposium series has assembled a small, select group of scholars to exchange knowledge, ideas, and enthusiasm with the resident faculty, students, and the community at large. The first two symposia concentrated on cross-cultural themes (Marsella, Tharp, & Ciborowski, 1979; Marsella, DeVos, & Hsu, 1985). The third one addressed a significant social problem: aggression and violence in children. At the time that our plan was being developed, Hawaii, along with mainland states, was experiencing or at least expressing widespread alarm over the involvement of children and youth in violent crime, in belligerence at school, as perpetrators of aggression at home, and as victims of physical abuse. This symposium was planned around a major area within the department, the Clinical Studies Program. The Clinical Studies Program has developed along two interrelated lines of concentration: one emphasized the foundation of clin?? cical psychology in basic science and the other expanded its purview into the broader community, covering prevention, systems change, and social networks

TitleResearch Methods in Applied Behavior Analysis : Issues and Advances
Author(s)Poling, Alan;Fuqua, R. Wayne
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer US, 1986.
DescriptionXIV, 352 p. 7 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteThe branch of clinical psychology known as behavior modification or, synonymously, applied behavior analysis, has grown substantially from humble beginnings in the 1960s. Many colleges and universities now offer courses in applied behavior analysis, and more than a few grant degrees in the area. Although they remain controversial, behavior mod?? ification procedures have been used to good advantage in dealing with a range of problem behaviors and are now rather widely employed in schools, residential institutions, and other therapeutic facilities. The two hallmarks of applied behavior analysis are utilization of the principles of operant conditioning to improve human behavior and utilization of scientific research methodology to assess the effectiveness of treatments. The present text provides an overview of several issues peculiar to applied behavior analysis research methodology. Six general areas of concern are (a) trends in applied behavior analysis research, (b) assessment and measurement issues, (c) experimental designs and strategies, (d) interpretation of findings, (e) ethical issues in applied behavior analysis, and (f) the societal impact of studies in the area. As evidenced by a sizable number of recently published articles, these topics are of considerable interest to behavior analysts. They also are relevant for students of scientific epistemology and general psychological research methods

TitleFundamentals of Behavior Analytic Research
Author(s)Poling, Alan;Methot, Laura L;LeSage, Mark G
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer US, 1995.
DescriptionXII, 222 p : online resource
Abstract NoteBy the end of his long life, B. F. Skinner (1904-1990) had become one of the most influential and best known of psychologists (Gilgen, 1982; Heyduke & Fenigstein, 1984). An important feature of the approach to the study of behavior that he championed, behavior analysis, is the intensive study of individual subjects over time. This approach, which is characterized by the use of within-subject experimental designs, repeated and direct measures of behavior, and graphic analysis of data, stands in marked contrast to the research methods favored by many nonbehavioral psychologists. Skinner discussed the advantages of his approach in a number of books (e.g., Skinner, 1938, 1953, 1979), but never devoted a book to methodology. Sidman (1960) and Johnson and Pennypack (1993b) did devote books to behavior analytic research methodology. These books are of excep?? tionally high quality and should be read carefully by anyone interested in behavior analysis. They are sophisticated, however, and are not easy reads for most neophyte behaviorists. Introductory-level books devoted entirely to methods of applied behavior analysis (e.g., Kazdin, 1982; Barlow & Hersen, 1984) are easier to understand, but somewhat limited in coverage

TitleUsing Rational-Emotive Therapy Effectively : A Practitioner's Guide
Author(s)Bernard, Michael E
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer US, 1991.
DescriptionXVI, 350 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThe initial conceptualization of this book was much more narrow than the final product that has emerged. I started out believing that it would be enlightening to have a group of acknowledged rational-emotive therapy (RET) expert practitioners with well-established literary credentials write about how they approach the problem of modifying dient irrationality. Many RET practitioners of all levels of experience are, on the one hand, enamored of the economy, the precision, and the accuracy of psychological insight that RET theory offers, but they are, on the other hand, equally frustrated by their own inability to "persuade" or otherwise change some of the dients they work with more quickly or even at all. Indeed, dients themselves frequently express the view that RET is illuminating, yet they find themselves at the same time puzzled and perplexed by their inability to make the substantial changes that RET invites. It became dearer as I discussed the project with many of the contrib?? utors that to practice RET effectively requires more than just innovative and persistent assessment and intervention techniques. For example, Rus?? sell Grieger expressed the view that more prerequisite work needs to be done on the value and philosophical systems of dients-induding person?? al responsibility and the philosophy of happiness-before many dients can show significant shifts in their thinking. Susan Walen raised the gener?? al issues of how effective RET can be in the treatment of biologically driven affective disorders
