A Guide to Treatments That Work (4th ed.)Like its predecessors, this fourth edition of A Guide to Treatments That Work offers detailed chapters that review the latest research on pharmacological and psychosocial treatments that work for the full range of psychiatric and psychological disorders, written in most instances by clinicalpsychologists and psychiatrists who have been major contributors to that literature. Similarly, the standards by which the authors were asked to evaluate the methodological rigor of the research on treatments have also remained the same.Each chapter in A Guide to Treatments That Work follows the same general outline: a review of diagnostic cues to the disorder, a discussion of changes in the nomenclatures from DSM-IV to DSM-5, and then a systematic review of research, most of which has been reported within the last few years, thatrepresents the evidence base for the treatments reviewed. In all, 26 of the volume's 28 chapters review the evidence base for 17 major syndromes. Featuring this coverage is a Summary of Treatments that Work, an extended matrix offering a ready reference by syndrome of the conclusions reached by thechapter authors on treatments that work reviewed in their chapters.New to this edition are two chapters at the beginning of the book. Chapter 1 details two perplexing issues raised by critics of DSM-5: the unrealized potential of neuroscience biomarkers to yield more accurate and reliable diagnoses and the lingering problem of conflicts of interest inpharmaceutical research. Chapter 2 contrasts Native American and western ways of identifying effective treatments for mental and physical disorders, concluding that "evidence-informed culture-based" interventions sometimes constitute best practices in Native communities. Two chapters detailingpharmacological treatments for pediatric bipolar disorder (Chapter 9) and pediatric depressive disorder (Chapter 12) have also been added. More than three quarters of the chapters are written by colleagues who also contributed to most or all of the previous editions. Hence, this new edition providesup-to-date information on the quality of research on treatment efficacy and effectiveness provided by individuals who know the research best.
A Guide to Treatments That Work (3rd ed.)Much about this third edition of A Guide to Treatments That Work remains as it was in the first and second editions. Like its predecessors, this edition offers detailed evaluative reviews of current research on empirically supported treatments, written in most instances by clinicalpsychologists and psychiatrists who are major contributors to that literature. Similarly, the standards by which the authors were asked to evaluate the methodological rigor of the research on treatments have also remained the same. As before, they provide information on the quality of the researchon treatment efficacy and effectiveness that is reviewed.A few changes have been made in the substance of the book. Three chapters have been added. They cover treatments for conditions for which empirically supported treatments have only recently emerged. The first reviews current data on treatments for pathological gambling and other impulse controldisorders. As our society extends gambling venues, the number of pathological gamblers has increased proportionately. Hence, there is clear need for effective treatments for gambling problems. The second of the new chapters evaluates psychosocial treatments for posttraumatic stress disorder. Thedramatic recent increase in patients diagnosed with PTSD, in large part reflecting psychological casualties from the war in Iraq, has made the search for effective PTSD treatments more compelling than ever. Finally, the concluding chapter of the volume provides a comprehensive review of the efficacyof combined psychopharmacological and psychosocial treatments for the major depressive disorders and anxiety disorders. This chapter recognizes the growing use of combined treatments for many disorders for which monotherapies had previously been the rule.A column has been added to the Summary of Treatments That Work that estimates the percent of participants in clinical trials responding positively to specific interventions. While a number of treatments have not yet yielded reliable estimates of percent of responders, many have, and inclusion ofthem in this summary table enables readers now to know both whether an intervention meets empirically supported treatment standards and, if it does, what percent of patients have typically benefited from it in clinical trials.As an interdisciplinary work that integrates information from both clinical psychology and psychiatry, this new edition will continue to serve as an essential volume for both academics and practicing clinicians.

Throughout the course of the program, children are taught how to recognize their feelings and display them appropriately without resorting to aggressive behaviors. Groups of 4 - 6children meet on a weekly basis and participate in activities, exercises, and role-plays that reinforce the themes of the program. Topics include the importance of setting and achieving goals, using problem-solving methods to resolve conflicts, and using self-statements, relaxation, and distractiontechniques to cope with anger arousal.

Coping Power Parent Group Program : WorkbookThis program is an evidence based intervention for behavioral in pre-adolescent children (grades 5 and 6). Continuing the work of the Fast Track Program, currently under contract, this intervention targets children who are beginning to show signs of severe aggression and social dysfunction atschool.

The Coping Power program involves an intervention with aggressive children and a simultaneous program for their parents, to increase positive motivations athome as well as at school.
