Innovations and Applications for Research and Practice
Author: Larissa N. Niec
This handbook examines advances in the evidence-based behavioral family intervention, parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT). It surveys innovative adaptations tailored to specific diagnostic concerns, client populations, treatment settings, and delivery formats. Chapters provide rationales for adaptation, reviews of relevant research, and discussions of advantages and challenges. Case studies illustrate the implementation of the adaptations and help to make new techniques concrete. The handbook offers practical descriptions of the adaptations to PCIT, comprehensively reviews treatment outcome literature, and integrates cutting-edge implementation science into an exploration of the current dissemination strategies in PCIT. The handbook concludes with a consideration of the questions that remain to be addressed to extend the reach of PCIT among traditionally underserved families and to continue to advance the science and practice of children’s mental health interventions. Featured topics include: PCIT for children with callous-unemotional traits. PCIT for families with a history of child maltreatment. Group PCIT. PCIT for military families. The PCIT CALM program for treating anxiety in young children. PCIT for American Indian families. Transporting and disseminating PCIT internationally. Using technology to expand the reach of PCIT. The Handbook of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy is a must-have resource for researchers, professors, instructors, clinicians, and graduate students in child and school psychology, child psychiatry, and social work as well as such related disciplines as developmental, clinical, counseling, and community psychology, family studies, and mental health services and agencies.

USA Today bestselling author Rebecca York continues the gripping romantic saga begun in Beyond Control, as a woman with extraordinary powers finds herself pursued by those who would love her, possess her, or destroy her... On the lush Caribbean island of Grand Fernandino, Anna Ridgeway is working her “magic.” Blessed with uncanny psychic abilities since she was a child, she now uses her gift in a mind-reading act at a nightclub. But since arriving on Grand Fernandino, she's been plagued with a sense of impending danger. Her feelings are confirmed when evil forces coalesces around her and international treasure hunter Zachary Robinson. At first, Anna fears Zach's very presence. But when they touch, their physical and psychic bond astonishes them. They find they share a common past—and an uncommon passion for each other. But there is a sinister figure from long ago who will never allow their love to survive. A man who has been hunting them all their lives.
Psychopaths constitute less than 1% of the general population, but they commit a much larger proportion of crime and violence in society. This volume chronicles the latest science of psychopathy, various ways that psychopaths challenge the criminal justice system, and the major ethical issues arising from this fascinating condition.
This comprehensive handbook synthesizes the rapidly growing research base on child and adolescent psychopathy: its nature, causes, development, assessment, and treatment. The editors and contributors are leading authorities who review state-of-the-art empirical findings and weigh in on pressing questions, such as how the disorder should be conceptualized in youth and how to evaluate it in clinical and forensic contexts. Available assessment instruments and intervention approaches are critically examined. Etiological theories are presented that shed light on a range of potential causal mechanisms, including genetics, brain functioning, temperament, family processes, and other factors.
