This is the first volume to integrate neuropsychology and behavior therapy into a comprehensive, cohesive assessment and treatment methodology. Of particular value is a discussion of how to integrate multiple sources of information and criteria for selecting treatment techniques. The work will appeal to a wide audience including neuropsychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, and special educators.
Latino/as make up the fastest growing ethnic minority population in the U.S., and yet the U.S. mental health workforce is not adequately trained to meet the needs of this group. As such, there is an urgent need to prepare students, supervisors and mental health professionals to effectively study, understand and meet the needs of this growing population. This volume emphasizes the diversity within this heterogeneous ethnic group from multiple psychological and socio-historical perspectives, with special attention on Latino/a group complexities and differences. It covers the historical context, cultural factors and political realities of U.S. Latino/as and their impact on mental health. Finally, it provides practical ways mental health practitioners can integrate traditional cultural values, gender role ideologies and socio-cultural factors into clinical practice with Latino/a clients, and offers promising interventions for mental health concerns.
The dilemma of how best to protect human rights is one of the most persistent problems facing the international community today. This unique and wide-ranging history of humanitarian intervention examines responses to oppression, persecution and mass atrocities from the emergence of the international state system and international law in the late sixteenth century, to the end of the twentieth century. Leading scholars show how opposition to tyranny and to religious persecution evolved from notions of the common interests of 'Christendom' to ultimately incorporate all people under the concept of 'human rights'. As well as examining specific episodes of intervention, the authors consider how these have been perceived and justified over time, and offer important new insights into ideas of national sovereignty, international relations and law, as well as political thought and the development of current theories of 'international community'.
