Playing the DSM Game  


The Cult of DSM by Gary Greenberg:

Labeling clients with DSM diagnoses is a ritual most of us perform to get reimbursed and pay our mortgages, but few of us actually believe in. Has the time finally come for us to take our dissatisfaction with the DSM seriously and turn it into something more than a bitter complaint?

The Book We Love to Hate by Mary Sykes Wylie: 

From small insignificant beginnings in 1952, when almost nobody read it, DSM has become a kind of sacred literary monster. Today, it’s the most detested and certainly the most debated mental health classification scheme ever devised.

Shedding Light on DSM-5 by Martha Teater: 

While the polemical debates over the new DSM have received widespread coverage, the reactions of ordinary clinicians have yet to receive much scrutiny.


Extra Feature


Soft Shock Therapy by Cloe Madanes: 

Using humor to help clients reconstruct their problems, even to the point of making parodies of their own dilemmas, can help some them get distance from their woes, learn to take themselves less seriously, and perhaps even gain a bit of wisdom.




Clinician´s Digest by Garry Cooper and Mary Sykes Wylie: 

Therapists’ Perspectives on the Woody Allen Allegations

In Consultation by Judith Matz: 

Confronting Our Prejudices Against Higher-Weight Clients

Therapists should not only be aware of their prejudices toward higher-weight clients, but should commit themselves to challenge those attitudes as well.

Case Study by David Johnson: 

When we find ourselves haunted by a particular case, it may mean that we’re more invested in the client making changes than the client is himself.

Point of View by Ryan Howes: 

Barbara Fredrickson’s research on the biology of love and positivity demystifies our ideas about the role of intimacy, connection, and resilience in our lives.

Bookmarks by Diane Cole: 

The era of unchallenged male entitlement has come to an end, and many men are mad as hell. A new book provides context to help us deal with this anger in the consulting room.

Family Matters by Roberta Israeloff: 

Our heads may tell us that we need to embrace inevitable changes as we grow older, but our hearts often tell a different story.

Untangling Brain Science 


The Next Big Step by Rick Hanson:

Labeling behavior in fancy neurophysiologia terms can make what we do sound more scientifically rigorous than the notoriously fuzzy language of psychotherapy. Buthow clinically useful is this brain language anyway?

The Great Deception by Brent Atkinson: 

Most of us put much too much faith in the power of our conscious minds to bring about lasting change. Instead of looking up the higher branches of consciousness, we should be looking down into the nervous system settings that generate impulses and inclinations.

Beyond Phrenology by Mary Sykes Wilie: 

If therapists are going to bring genuine insights-not just soundbites-from neuroscience into the practice of therapy, they need the nuancedm sophisticated understanding of the brain that gifted explicators like Stephen Porges and Norman Doidge offer.


Extra Feature


What Is This Thing Called Love? by Barbara Fredrickson: 

More than any other positive emotion, love resides within connections. It extends beyond personal boundaries to characterize the vibe that pulsates between and among people. It can even energize whole social networks or inspire a crowd to get up and dance.




Clinician´s Digest by Tori Rodriguez and Katheleen Smith: 

Psychotherapy and the Affordable Care Act – Ecstasy in the Consulting Room

In Consultation by Leslie Korn: 

Learning even a little about nutrition and diet can greatly enhance therapists’ ability to help clients with mood problems.

Case Study by Dan Hughes: 

Therapists must offer abused children a different felt experience of who they are.

Point of View by Ryan Howes: 

In Emotional First Aid, Manhattan psychologist Guy Winch provides an instructional manual for handling the bumps and bruises of life.

Bookmarks by Diane Cole: 

David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants

With his enormous success, Malcolm Gladwell has morphed from a darling underdog to a publishing juggernaut at whom it’s now trendy to sling insults.

Family Matters by J. Scott Janssen: 

A Bruce Springsteen song helps crack the unspoken code of father–son communication.
