Personalizing Psychotherapy: Assessing and Accommodating Patient Preferences

By: John C. Norcross and Mick Cooper

Associated Courses: Counseling Process, Psychological Counseling, Psychotherapy

 E-Collection: Full, Clinical

This book provides detailed guidance on assessing and accommodating patient preferences for the psychotherapist, the therapeutic approach, and treatment activities.

Blending empirical research and clinical expertise into easy-to-read advice, the authors offer multiple strategies for routinely assessing preferences as they evolve over the course of therapy, focusing primarily on strong likes and dislikes. Four key strategies for accommodating a client’s preferences are explored in depth: adopting them into treatment, adapting the therapist’s approach, exploring alternative preferences, and referring the patient to another practitioner if necessary.

 

Crises in the Psychotherapy Session: Transforming Critical Moments into Turning Points

By: Julian D. Ford

Associated Courses: Counseling Process, Psychological Counseling, Psychotherapy

E-Collection: Full, Clinical

What do you do when your client flies into a rage or has a severe panic attack during a therapy session? Crises that erupt in the midst of a psychotherapy session can be overwhelming not just for the client but also for the therapist. Yet every crisis also can be a therapeutic breakthrough. With this book, therapists learn how to transform such critical moments in psychotherapy into powerful and positive turning points.

Drawing from trauma and attachment theory and the essential principles of psychotherapy and crisis management, Ford explains how crises can be understood as episodes of extreme emotional dysregulation. With a series of in-depth case examples, Ford shows how therapists can utilize emotion regulation as a practical framework to deescalate crises.

 

Refugee Mental Health

Edited by: Jamie D. Aten and Jenny Hwang

Associated Courses: Social Work and Mental Health, Human Behavior in Social Environments

E-Collection: Full, Clinical

This book is an in-depth practical guide for mental health practitioners working across diverse theoretical orientations to provide mental health services tailored to the needs of refugees. These needs are felt more keenly than ever as displaced populations continue to grow. Refugees often experience high rates of psychological distress, and appropriate mental health care services remain severely underdeveloped.

 

Trauma and Racial Minority Immigrants: Turmoil, Uncertainty, and Resistance

Edited by: Pratyusha Tummala-Narra

Part of the Cultural, Racial, and Ethnic Psychology Series

Associated Courses: Psychology of Ethnic and Racial Minorities, Psychology of Prejudice

 E-Collection: Full, Academic

For racial minority immigrants in the United States, trauma can have both historical and ongoing sources. Today’s immigrants face a dangerous mix of rising nationalism and xenophobia, alarming rates of displacement within and across nations, war, trafficking, terrorism, and deportation. Multiple traumas stem from these experiences and can be exacerbated by interpersonal violence and other forms of marginalization within communities.

In the nuanced pages of this book, you will deepen your understanding of the immigrant experience and develop professional skills to help heal traumatic stress faced by racial minority immigrants.

With three purchase options to select from, the 2021 E-Collections offer the ability to procure perpetual access to the relevant psychological research your users have come to rely on.
