The cat lady. The couple who won't let anyone in their apartment. The old man with all that junk in his yard. Their severe hoarding puts them, and often others, at risk for injury, disease, and even death. Most deny needing help, and for this reason, professionals are desperate to find more effective ways to offer and provide assistance to them. In response to this growing public health problem, Clinician's Guide to Severe Hoarding refines our understanding and presents in depth and innovative alternative to traditional interventions. Arguing that although treatment for hoarding can be effective for those who are open to help, people with severe hoarding are not. The Clinician’s Guide to Severe Hoarding describes an alternative strategy to help those who adamantly refuse help and yet face significant health and safety risks due to the hoarding problem – harm reduction. This client-centered approach takes readers through harm reduction plan development, team building, goal setting, client collaboration, and progress assessment. The Clinician’s Guide also explains that a successful harm reduction plan may encourage clients to seek further help, and offers insights into working with special populations such as people who hoard animals and children who exhibit hoarding behavior. The Clinician's Guide describes in detail a range of strategies for assisting people with severe hoarding: Strategies for engaging with clients who hoard. Guidelines for assessing harm potential. Guidelines for creating a harm reduction plan, building a harm reduction team, and conducting and evaluating home visits. Skills for client self-help: decision making, time management, and more. Guidelines for navigating the ethical and legal issues that arise in assisting people who hoard. Readings, links, and other resources. With its practical common-sense approach to a complex problem, Clinician's Guide to Severe Hoarding is a unique volume not only for mental health practitioners, but also other professionals who assist people who hoard, such as home health aides, social workers, and professional organizers.

Clinical Guide to Obsessive Compulsive and Related Disorders is a complete, comprehensive overview of OCD and related disorders (trichotillomania, excoriation disorder, hoarding disorder, body dysmorphic disorder, and tic disorders).

It discusses the pharmacological and psychosocial treatments for both adults and children with an emphasis on providing practical information for clinicians to use in their everyday practices. Based on the DSM-5, the book uses the latest evidence-based information regarding treatments including medication options, behavioral therapies, alternative treatments, and recent developments in surgical treatment. This book will provide students, residents, interns and even veteran clinicians with a basic understanding of OCD and disorders that are often associated with OCD. In addition, members of the public and those affected by these disorders may use this book to enhance their personal knowledge of the subject matter presented.

This book helps healthcare, law enforcement, and state and federal agencies recognize child maltreatment, identify those children who are at high risk for neglect and abuse, and formulate strategies for preventing or intervening in such situations. Clearly describes indicators of abuse and contrasts them with non-abuse injuries. Outlines steps to take in handling disclosure by a child. Describes the legal and social systems, and walks the reader through the courtroom procedures associated with child abuse. Lists protective services by state and outlines a model abuse investigation protocol. This reference was created to help physicians diagnose child maltreatment, recognize those children at high risk for abuse and neglect, and realize strategies for prevention and intervention in abuse cases. Although the text is approached from a medical point of view, the information contained will also be beneficial to other health care professionals, social service workers, attorneys, law enforcement workers, state agencies, and others who might be involved with abused children. Information concerning physical and psychological abuse, neglect, and sexual abuse, as well as their legal aspects, is collected here in a single volume.

DSM-IV is here, and mental health professionals--whether they applaud its rigor or decry its rigidity--will have to know how to use it. Like its predecessor, DSM-III, DSM-IV is empirically based and atheoretical. The psychodynamics of mental disorders and their etiologies are not considered. Its principal advantage is that it provides a reliable system of diagnosis. Its principal flaw is that it can lead the clinician to focus too exclusively on categorizing symptom clusters rather then on empathically understanding the person who is suffering the symptoms. In Using DSM-IV: A Clinician's Guide to Psychiatric Diagnosis, LaBruzza and Mendez-Villarrubia offer the needed supplement to the DSM-IV. Their book, a veritable road map for DSM-IV, explains the technical language and hierarchical classifications of DSM-IV while it demonstrates how the system can be adapted to a clinical approach.
