Essentials of ADHD Assessment for Children and Adolescents

The skyrocketing rates of ADHD diagnosis highlight the importance of mental health professionals being able to accurately identify ADHD and to differentiate it from other conditions that can mimic its symptoms. Co-authored with Elizabeth P. Sparrow, this book provides comprehensive coverage of the nature and diagnosis of ADHD, giving readers the necessary tools to conduct state-of-the-art evaluations for this common but frequently misdiagnosed disorder. Renowned ADHD expert and UC Berkeley Professor, Stephen Hinshaw, described the book as "far and away the best guide to ADHD assessment and diagnosis ever done."

Carol A. Falender, PhD and Edward P. Shafranske, PhD, ABPP

Multiculturalism and Diversity in Clinical Supervision: A Competency-Based Approach

Edited by Drs. Carol Falender, Edward Shafranske, and Celia Falicov, this practical guide presents a model for developing multicultural competence within supervision. In-depth supervisory vignettes apply the model to a variety of cultural dimensions, including gender, ethnicity/ race, immigration, socioeconomic status, disabilities, religion, and sexual orientation. APA President Nadine Kaslow said it would "quickly become the leading text on multiculturalism and diversity in clinical supervision for supervisors and supervisees alike."

Susan Hall, JD, PhD

A Counselor's Guide to Working with Men

The book features insight from nationally-recognized scholars and clinicians with expertise in treating men. Hall, associate professor or psychology, contributed a chapter together with Robert Scholz, assistant director and coordinator of alcohol and drug programs of the Pepperdine University Counseling Center in Malibu. The chapter discusses the ways in which motivational interviewing can be useful for counselors, psychologists, and other mental health professionals in engaging men reluctant to seek help.
