Handbook Of Professional Ethics For Psychologists. 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.

Offenders With Developmental Disabilities. 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.

Written by an eminent authority from the American Academy of Neurology's Committee on Ethics, Law, and Humanities, this book is an excellent text for all clinicians interested in ethical decision-making.

Treating Childhood Psychopathology And Developmental Disabilities. 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.)

How To Teach Daily Living Skills To Adults With Developmental Disabilities. As hard as it might be to imagine, there are people working in the social services field who aren’t as well trained as they might be. This doesn’t mean that they work for a “bad” agency or that we need to change the whole service delivery system. It means that those staff people need more training. Training in what? This book introduces readers to a wide range of principles used in teaching daily living skills to adults with developmental disabilities – including understanding the basics of behavior, assessing behaviors, writing plans, instructional processes, reinforcement, behavior management tips, data collection, ethical issues, and much more. It is written in a conversational tone rather than a textbook format, so it’s like having a conversation with someone who has “been there and done that.” This is an idea generating book designed to get you thinking about the service you provide the clients in your program.

Neurodevelopmental Disabilities. Neurodevelopmental disabilities are a common problem in child health. This book takes a comprehensive approach to addressing these often challenging clinical diagnoses. In particular, it focuses on the two most common of childhood neurodevelopmental disabilities: global developmental delay and developmental language impairment. It seeks to put forward our present conceptualization of these entities as well as their proper evaluation and assessment and diagnosis from a variety of perspectives. It also provides details on our current understanding of the scientific basis of these disorders and their underlying causes. Issues related to medical management, rehabilitation, and eventual outcomes are also addressed in a detailed way. The book has wide appeal to those in paediatrics, developmental paediatrics, child neurology, and paediatric rehabilitation. Its geographic appeal includes both developed and developing nations as some chapters are devoted to the particular issues faced in underdeveloped countries. The book’s focus on both clinical and scientific aspects is invaluable in this field. It also provides extensive information in a single source relating to often-overlooked areas such as medical management, rehabilitation, public policy, and ethics.
