Dictionary of Psychopathology

Psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, psychiatric nurses, theoreticians, practitioners, and other allied professionals who together represent the entire arc of the mental health field must be versed in psychopathology, the study of mental and emotional phenomena, abnormal psychology, and specific symptoms and behaviors. Building a reference that speaks to all of these professions and subjects, Henry Kellerman assembles the first dictionary to focus exclusively on psychopathology, featuring more than two thousand entries (over fifteen hundred primary and more than five hundred subentries) on specific symptoms and disorders, general syndromes, facets of personality structure, and diagnosis. He also includes a sampling of benchmark contributions by theoreticians and researchers that cover the history of psychopathology. These contributions reflect those of a psychodynamic nature as well as cognitive and behavioral approaches, and represent the relatively new field of neuropsychoanalysis as well. This branch of neuroscience is concerned with the relation between the brain and the mind, specifically with reference to brain architecture and function. Monitored by a distinguished editorial board, the Dictionary of Psychopathology mostly adheres to the latest DSM nomenclature while also retaining useful residual diagnoses of previous DSM formulations, as well as diagnostic formulations outside of traditional nosologies. The aim of the Dictionary is to broadly contribute to the synthesis of psychopathology.

Personality

This book, for professions as well as for general readers, identifies and consolidates an understanding of personality development, personality type, and personality style. Twelve Styles are identified and displayed through case examples.

Personality

Perhaps the central question of psychology involves how personality personhood is formed. The twin factors or causes, of nature (genetics) versus nurture (environment), always lurk and subtly interplant in an epigenetic synthesis. This book, for professions as well as for general readers, identifies and consolidates an understanding of personality development, personality type, and personality style. Twelve Styles are identified and displayed through case examples. Examined is the powerful organizing principle of how emotion, especially anger, is managed. A detailed glossary helps guide the reader."

A Historical Dictionary of Psychiatry

This is the first historical dictionary of psychiatry.

A Historical Dictionary of Psychiatry

This is the first historical dictionary of psychiatry. It covers the subject from autism to Vienna, and includes the key concepts, individuals, places, and institutions that have shaped the evolution of psychiatry and the neurosciences. An introduction puts broad trends and international differences in context, and there is an extensive bibliography for further reading. Each entry gives the main dates, themes, and personalities involved in the unfolding of the topic. Longer entries describe the evolution of such subjects as depression, schizophrenia, and psychotherapy. The book gives ready reference to when things happened in psychiatry, how and where they happened, and who made the main contributions. In addition, it touches on such social themes as "women in psychiatry," "criminality and psychiatry," and "homosexuality and psychiatry." A comprehensive index makes immediately accessible subjects that do not appear in the alphabetical listing. Among those who will appreciate this dictionary are clinicians curious about the origins of concepts they use in their daily practices, such as "paranoia," "selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors" (SSRIs), or "tardive dyskinesia"; basic scientists who want ready reference to the development of such concepts as "neurotransmitters," "synapse," or "neuroimaging"; students of medical history keen to situate the psychiatric narrative within larger events, and the general public curious about illnesses that might affect them, their families and their communities-or readers who merely want to know about the grand chain of events from the asylum to Freud to Prozac. Bringing together information from the English, French, German, Italian, and Scandinavian languages, the Dictionary rests on an enormous base of primary sources that cover the growth of psychiatry through all of Western society.

Personality and Psychopathology

Synthesizing over 20 years of feminist thinking, this volume presents original critiques of mainstream psychological theories and lays the groundwork for the development of a context-based, feminist psychological theory.

Personality and Psychopathology

Under the scrutiny of feminist theory, traditional theories of personality and psychopathology are shown to be inadequate primarily because the theories reflect the biased cultural norms in which they were developed. Some limitations include their constricted views of human nature, their narrowly constructed definitions of mental health and mental disorder, and their lack of accounting for the many forces that affect human development and functioning. Synthesizing over 20 years of feminist thinking, this volume presents original critiques of mainstream psychological theories and lays the groundwork for the development of a context-based, feminist psychological theory. The first and only volume to present a specifically feminist perspective on the theoretical and conceptual foundations of treatment, Personality and Psychopathology is an essential text for upper-level courses in personality, psychopathology, and the psychology of women. Providing invaluable insights, it is necessary reading for mainstream and feminist therapists of all disciplines.

Sigmund Freud Comprehensive Reference Dictionary Of Psychoanalysis

The uniqueness of this Comprehensive Reference Dictionary is that, even though there are many professionals practicing psychoanalysis as well as publishing books and articles in the field, this work is based exclusively on the 24 primary texts of the recognized founder of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, M.D. Several dictionaries of relevance to psychoanalysis as a field of research and practice presently populate the market and though the quality of these efforts vary from excellent to acceptable, they all draw from a variety of sources, practitioners, researchers, and scholars but none limit themselves to a delineation of terms and concepts employed exclusively in the collected works of Freud himself. This definition is dedicated solely to a delineation of the terms and concepts developed and employed by Freud himself and used in his published works. That these terms and concepts became common nomenclature by subsequent generations of practitioners is of no relevance to our efforts here.Given the magnitude of this undertaking in creating an encyclopedic dictionary for practitioners in the broad field of psychoanalysis, I am determined to lay out a rational and logical fashion the methodology I have employed in gathering and sorting the materials included in this work. By doing so, I hope both to demonstrate the fundamental comprehensiveness of my approach and to validate the integrity I attempt to embody in this undertaking. This reference dictionary aspires to be a great resource for scholars, students, and practitioners of psychoanalysis who desire to have in one location a comprehensive delineation of every term and concept developed by Freud himself appearing in his published works. Every term and concept employed by Freud in any of his 24 volumes in his Collected Works is listed including the volume or volumes in which they appear and the page number for their exact location for referencing by the user of this dictionary.For 20 years I taught a doctoral-level seminar in the international summer program of Oxford University and have held a professorial appointment in research psychopathology specializing in the classical and modern schools of psychotherapy with special emphasis on the psychopathology of personality disorders. Presently, I am Editor-in-Chief of a scholarly journal in this field, The Behavioral Mind: A Journal in Personality Disorders, which fosters a balance between the APA's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and humanistic psychology embodied in the work of the Third Force led by Abraham Maslow and Carl Rogers, among others. In the development of this major reference work based on the Standard Edition of the Collected Works of Sigmund Freud, I have taken my inspiration from the creators of the great dictionaries of the English language, particular Dr. Samuel Johnson's essay on lexicography prefacing his landmark epic in commencing the first comprehensive Dictionary of the English Language (August, 1747, titled "Plan of a Dictionary of the English Language"), and that of the creators of the Oxford Dictionary of the English Language (launched May, 1860).In 1950, Nandor Fodor and Frank Gaynor, with a Preface by Theodor Reik, produced the first dictionary of psychoanalytic terms which were gleaned from over 60 primary source materials written by Freud himself. Though a monumental undertaking and an early key reference source for psychoanalysts, the book, titled, Freud: Dictionary of Psychoanalysis (N.Y.: The Philosophical Library, Inc., 1950), had some disappointing shortcomings in that it often defined the terms by only reference the book title from which it was selected but without a page reference. When bibliographic referencing was attempted, it never provided more than the chapter in which the word being defined was to be found.

Curing Psychological Symptoms

This book is more than a technical treatise. It considers 10 fascinating cases to show how Dr. Kellerman’s methods have worked over a half-century of private practice. A majority among those profiled do not require medication, some do.

Curing Psychological Symptoms

In this book—written for clinicians as well as the curious general reader—Dr. Henry Kellerman examines psychological symptoms such as obsessions, compulsions, and phobias by using a symptom code to unravel, and then cure, the symptom. The unfortunate fact is that psychotherapists have never really had a map or an instruction manual that they could follow so that any symptom could be unlocked and cured. Even though psychotherapists know a great deal about the processes of psychotherapeutic treatment, nowhere is there any spelled-out technique that they systematically could use to penetrate the symptom and then cure it. This book is more than a technical treatise. It considers 10 fascinating cases to show how Dr. Kellerman’s methods have worked over a half-century of private practice. A majority among those profiled do not require medication, some do. In addition to discussing the cure, Kellerman employs a way to struggle better, with the objective of learning how to utilize the symptom code.

Defining Psychopathology in the 21st Century

With that understanding comes a critical need to establish a diagnostic taxonomy for psychiatric illness that is more precise but still clinically relevant. This volume responds to that need.

Defining Psychopathology in the 21st Century

Among today's astounding research discoveries, perhaps the most fascinating is the mapping of the human genome and its implications for a vastly improved understanding of how genes affect our physiology and behavior. With that understanding comes a critical need to establish a diagnostic taxonomy for psychiatric illness that is more precise but still clinically relevant. This volume responds to that need. It highlights the shortcomings of current categorical diagnoses, such as those used in DSM-IV, for future research needs in behavioral disorders in general and psychiatric genetics in particular. With a chapter by each distinguished neuroscientist who presented at the 2000 American Psychopathological Association (APPA) meeting, this volume is divided into four sections: Definitional Tensions, which discusses the difficulties with the current categorical diagnostic system; Imaging Psychopathology, which presents research demonstrating how imaging technologies can tremendously improve our illness definitions; Longitudinal Studies, which details what we can learn from epidemiological and other longitudinal studies; and Exploring Alternatives, which discusses the application of dimensional classification systems in genetics research in psychopathology, with a fascinating chapter on using new methodologies for treating subsyndromal or pre-schizophrenia, a taxonomic condition defined herein as "schizotaxia." This unique collection represents a significant step in developing approaches to classification that will lead to more accurate diagnoses and treatments for patients and a broader range of taxonomic options for researchers. As such, it will also be welcomed by psychiatric clinicians and educators, as well as by anyone interested in genetics and how it governs human behavior.
