London: Routledge. 128 pp. Hardback octavo, no jacket as issued, very good condition, minor edgewear. The practice of psychodrama allows participants to create a world for themselves, free of usual rules and constraints. This freedom from all ordinary conventions is what Moreno called 'surplus reality', and is one of the most vital, curative and mysterious elements of psychodrama. Leif Dag Blomkvist and Zerka Moreno explore the depths of this long-neglected and inadequately explained concept. In addition, each chapter is prefaced by Leif Dag Blomkvist's explanations and illuminations of the forces and energies - from early religious rituals and festivals to the art of surrealism - which have influenced psychodrama. Psychodramatists and mental health professionals who wish to take therapy beyond the 'verbal' will find the book valuable reading. ISBN: 0415223202. Our Book No: 10101. $50 AUD.

Children with autism have also been placed on stringent diets, subjected to high-temperature saunas, bathed in magnetic clay, asked to swallow digestive enzymes and activated charcoal, and injected with various combinations of vitamins, minerals, and acids. He considers the manipulation of science in the popular media and the courtroom, and he explores why society is susceptible to the bad science and risky therapies put forward by many anti-vaccination activists.

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press (CUP). 283 pp. Paperback large octavo, very good condition, tables, few tiny dents rear cover, light crease front cover near spine, minor edgewear. Second edition. Bipolar depression is now known to exist as a spectrum of disorders rather than a single disease entity.

The only academic and clinical management review focussing entirely on bipolar II, covering history, epidemiology, burden and neurobiology, and including a clinical debate by international experts about effective management strategies. New chapters cover comorbidity, over-represented personality styles, illness 'trajectories' and distinguishing bipolar II from personality-based emotional dysregulation states.

At the heart of Sigmund Freud's theory of psychoanalysis is the concept of repression, the avoidance of experiences associated with conflict.

The world's leaders in clinical psychiatry, clinical psychology, health psychology, and cognitive psychology examine the historical origins of the concept of repression, survey the clinical and research evidence for its existence as a psychological function, and summarize the major theoretical formulations of repression current today, including the emerging concept of repression as a personality style. Explores the implications of a repressor personality style for physiology and health, investigating its links to stress and its effects on the immune system and on diseases such as cancer.

583. Snyder, C. R. (editor) (1999). Coping: The Psychology of What Works. New York: Oxford University Press. 350 pp. Hardback dustjacket, very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket). Essays on the nature of coping from eminent researchers. Most people take the process of coping for granted as they go about their daily activities. In many ways, coping is like breathing, an automatic process requiring no apparent effort. However, when people face truly threatening events (stressors), they become acutely aware of the coping process and respond by consciously applying their day-to-day coping skills. Coping is a fundamental psychological process, and people's skills are commensurately sophisticated. This volume builds on people's strengths and emphasizes their role as positive copers. It features techniques for preventing psychological problems and breaks from the traditional research approach, which is modeled on medicine and focuses on pathology and treatment. These provocative essays explore topics including reality negotiation, confessing through writing, emotional intelligence, optimism, hope, mastery-oriented thinking, and more. ISBN: 0195119347.

657. Watters, Evan (2010). Crazy Like Us: The Globalization of the American Psyche (1st ed). New York: Free Press. 306 pp. Hardback dustjacket, very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket). It is well known that American culture is a dominant force that exports everything from movies to junk food worldwide. Reveals that the most devastating consequence has been the bulldozing of the human psyche itself - the process of homogenizing the way the world goes mad. America has been the world leader in generating new mental health treatments and modern theories of the human psyche. It exports drugs packaged with the certainty that its biomedical knowledge will relieve the suffering and stigma of mental illness. It categorises disorders (the DSM model), thereby defining mental illness and health, and then parades these apparent scientific certainties in front of the world. American interventions have discounted and worked to change indigenous beliefs. For example, in post-tsunami Sri Lanka, reports on the Western trauma counselors who, in their rush to help, inadvertently trampled local expressions of grief, suffering, and healing. In Hong Kong, he retraces the last steps of the teenager whose death sparked an epidemic of the American version of anorexia nervosa. ISBN: 9781416587088. Our Book No: 2931. $20 AUD.
