Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual

by Alliance of Psychoanalytic Organizations

This manual is based on current neuroscience and treatment outcome studies that demonstrate the importance of focusing on the full range and depth of emotional and social functioning. Beginning with a classification of the spectrum of personality patterns and disorders found in individuals and then describing a profile of mental functioning that permits a clinician to look in detail at each of the patient's capacities, the entries include a description of the patient's symptoms with a focus on the patient's internal experiences as well as surface behaviors. Intended to expand on the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders)and ICD (International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems) efforts in cataloging the symptoms and behaviors of mental health patients, this manual opens the door to a fuller understanding of the functioning of the mind, brain, and their development.

Psycholinguistics: Central Topics

by Alan Garnham

From the author: This book reflects my beliefs about how psycholinguistics, and cognitive psychology in general, should be taught. Since psycholinguistics is a scientific discipline, the book discusses theories about the central cognitive aspects of language understanding, rather than presenting a morass of unstructured facts on a series of loosely connected topics. It also attempts to reflect the emergence of cognitive science, an interdisciplinary approach to the study of language and other cognitive processes. It describes not only psychological studies, but also ideas from linguistics, artificial intelligence, the philosophy of language and formal logic. There is no pretence that the discussion is exhaustive.

Includes exercises and narratives about disability, primarily by caregivers.

The Psychological Assessment of Political Leaders: With Profiles of Saddam Hussein and Bill Clinton

by Post Jerrold M.

In an age when world affairs are powerfully driven by personality, politics require an understanding of what motivates political leaders such as Hussein, Bush, Blair, and bin Laden. Through exacting case studies and the careful sifting of evidence, Jerrold Post and his team of contributors lay out an effective system of at-a-distance evaluation. Observations from political psychology, psycholinguistics and a range of other disciplines join forces to produce comprehensive political and psychological profiles, and a deeper understanding of the volatile influences of personality on global affairs. Even in this age of free-flowing global information, capital, and people, sovereign states and boundaries remain the hallmark of the international order -- a fact which is especially clear from the events of September 11th and the War on Terrorism.
