Cognition and Behavior in Multiple Sclerosis

This book offers a comprehensive analysis of the effects of multiple sclerosis (MS) on cognition. Authors survey the impact of cognitive impairment on behavioral problems, daily living, and the development of neuropsychiatric disorders. Neuropsychologists and other mental health practitioners will learn to interpret MRIs, and provide treatment for a wide range of symptoms and disorders, including depression, fatigue, and challenges with daily living that patients with MS often confront.

Developing the Therapeutic Relationship

In this unique book, master clinicians and psychotherapy researchers examine how technique and the therapeutic relationship are inseparably intertwined. Using a variety of theoretical and research “lenses” and drawing on various models of psychotherapy, including psychodynamic therapy, cognitive–behavioral therapy, emotion-focused therapy, and brief family therapy, the contributors discuss the factors affecting client outcomes. Engaging case studies bring these processes to life by demonstrating how successful therapists negotiate the relationship and make key moment-to-moment decisions.

Treating Depression, Anxiety, and Stress in Ethnic and Racial Groups

This volume shows therapists how to adapt cognitive behavioral treatments for use with racial and ethnic minority clients. Contributors demonstrate how a client’s particular sociocultural background contextualizes her experience and understanding of mental health issues.  They examine the influence of sociocultural context on experiences of social anxiety among Asian-Americans, the role of racial identity in the way stress and anxiety are experienced by African-American clients, and much more. They propose adaptations of standard CBT treatments to maximize their effectiveness for all clients, regardless of race or ethnicity.

Learning Interventions for Consultants

This book merges consulting psychology with the psychology of learning to help consultants design and deliver effective learning interventions for individual employees, work groups, and entire organizations. The authors outline a five-step process that reviews how to conduct a needs analysis, develop a contract that sets reasonable goals and expectations for their clients, design learning methods to meet the organization’s needs, implement the program and tailor it as needed, and evaluate outcomes to ensure continuous improvement.

Mutual Radicalization

In this groundbreaking book, social psychologist Fathali Moghaddam explores the roots of violent conflicts around the world that are characterized by cycles of pathological hatred and extreme ideological polarization between two groups. He refers to this process as mutual radicalization and presents a three-stage model for understanding it, based on well-established psychological principles. Moghaddam applies this model to ten real-world case studies, demonstrating how mutual radicalization occurs at international and domestic levels. Moghaddam also outlines practical solutions for achieving deradicalization.
