Handbook of diagnosis and treatment of the DSM-IV personality disorders by Len Sperry( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Handbook begins by addressing how and why personality disorders - once considered difficult if not impossible to treat - have been reconceptualized in a much broader fashion. This new paradigm shift reflects breakthroughs in assessment and combined treatment strategies of personality disorders, which coincide with the increasingly differentiated criteria of DSM-III, DSM-III-R, and now, DSM-IV. The volume goes on to examine eleven distinct types of personality disorders as designated by DSM-IV. Each of these chapters is divided into five major sections: overview, description, clinical formulations, assessment, and treatment, with a major emphasis on the two latter categories
Mobbing : causes, consequences, and solutions by Maureen P Duffy( Book )

14 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An administrator known for her innovative on-the-job thinking becomes the target of anonymous rumors about financial mismanagement of her department. The rumors are proven baseless but her boss decides that she can't work with "that woman" anymore and prevents her from attending key meetings. The administrator sees a cardiologist for the first time in her life because of increasing chest pain, and her family doctor prescribes antidepressants "to get her over the hump." The administrator whose identity is interwoven with her job and company is bewildered by what is happening to her at work and says she doesn't know who she is anymore. A middle school student is the target of relentless name-calling and slurs by a group of other kids at school. The slurs include derogatory comments about his sexuality, appearance, and family. The taunting has increased over several months, and many teachers have witnessed it. The student was the subject of a recent conversation in the faculty lounge, where some faculty members said the student needed to "toughen up," while others expressed concern for his well-being. The student's main strategy has been to try and keep away from the group of kids, but he finds himself trusting fewer of his "friends," feeling both angry and sad, and having a hard time concentrating. What features of these two situations are almost identical, and why are they both classic instances of workplace and school mobbing? Mobbing is not the same as bullying, as the authors of this volume explain with cogent analysis of the organizational and contextual frameworks within which mobbing always occurs. From the Salem witch trials to workers trying to do the best they can at work, to kids whose humiliation in school has made the headlines, the authors offer numerous illustrations of mobbing, followed by insightful analyses and discussions of lessons learned. Duffy and Sperry provide a wealth of research to demonstrate the devastating toll that mobbing takes on its victims, their families, and the organizations where it occurs. The authors painstakingly avoid simplistic solutions to mobbing, such as removing the "bad apples," and instead, move the conversation forward by showing how bold and compassionate organizational leadership is required to improve conditions for the benefit of both individuals and their organizations"--Providd by publisher
Cognitive behavior therapy of DSM-IV personality disorders : highly effective interventions for the most common personality disorders by Len Sperry( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the treatment of patients with various disorders of personality has been discussed in clinical literature since the early days of psychotherapy, the general literature on the psychotherapeutic treatment of personality disorders has emerged more recently and is growing quickly. It is also in recent times that cognitive behavioral therapists have offered a structured, active, and directive treatment approach, in addition to advocating the use of a wide range of cognitive and behavioral techniques for addressing personality disorders. Cognitive Behavior Therapy of DSM-IV Personality Disorders specifies a number of effective and realistic treatment strategies that focus on both the temperament and character dimensions of personality and degree of severity of the disorder
Psychological treatment of chronic illness : the biopsychosocial therapy approach by Len Sperry( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Psychological Treatment of Chronic Illness: The Biopsychosocial Therapy Approach is unique in its focus on the experience of chronic illness from both the patient's and the provider's perspective. It emphasizes the need for a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment, case conceptualization, and treatment plan. It also stresses the clinical value of tailoring the treatment process to a patient's personality, family, culture, and health dynamics. In addition, counter-transference and other therapeutic relationship issues are addressed because they are more common and problematic in working with people who are chronically ill than they are with traditional psychotherapy clients. Case studies and extensive session transcriptions further illustrate the process of treating chronic illness"--Jacket. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)

"As the population ages, physicians are turning to psychotherapists to help the increasing number of patients who are struggling with chronic illnesses. To provide effective and appropriate treatment to these patients requires that clinicians broaden their psychological perspective and augment their intervention strategies and treatment plans specific to chronic medical illness.

The strategies and protocols tailored for these conditions are illustrated with extensive case studies and session transcriptions that make the treatment process tangible and results oriented. In addition, the book offers guidelines for dealing with such issues as illness denial, noncompliance, and challenges to life meaning that often stand in the way of patients leading full lives, despite their chronic illnesses"--Jaquette.
