The Handbook of Sport Neuropsychology (2010) | Dr. Frank Webbe
From the Foreword to the Handbook of Sports Neuropsychology by Dr. Frank Webbe
Dr. Webbe uses his vast knowledge and experience in the field of sport neuropsychology to create a superb road map that provides important information and direction for the study of sports concussion. This handbook reflects his skill at attracting some of the world’s leaders in sport neuropsychology as chapter authors, and his ability to organize and integrate their unique funds of knowledge. I am pleased to have been asked to contribute to this important addition to the literature, and I hope you will join me in experiencing Dr. Webbe’s passion and optimism regarding the future of sport neuropsychology, which is reflected in this extraordinary gift to our field.

Diversity Sensitive Personality Assessment (2018) | Dr. Radhika Krishnamurthy
Diversity-Sensitive Personality Assessment is a comprehensive guide for clinicians to consider how various aspects of client diversity―ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, nationality, religion, regionalism, socioeconomic status, and disability status―can impact assessment results, interpretation, and feedback. Chapters co-written by leading experts in the fields of diversity and personality assessment examine the influence of clinician, client, interpersonal, and professional factors within the assessment context. This richly informed and clinically useful volume encourages clinicians to delve into the complex ways in which individuals’ personal characteristics, backgrounds, and viewpoints intersect. This book fills an important gap in the personality assessment literature and is an essential resource for clinicians looking to move beyond surface-level understandings of diversity in assessment.
Competency-Based Education for Professional Psychology (2009) | Mary Beth Kenkel

A Closer Examination of Applicant Faking Behavior (2006) | Rich Griffith and Mitch Peterson
The faking of personality tests in a selection context has been perceived as somewhat of a nuisance variable, and largely ignored, or glossed over by the academic literature. Instead of examining the phenomenon many researchers have ignored its existence, or trivialized the impact of faking on personality measurement. The present volume is a much needed, timely corrective to this attitude. In a wide range of chapters representing different philosophical and empirical approaches, the assembled authors demonstrate the courage to tackle this important and difficult topic head-on, as it deserves to be. The writers of these chapters identify two critical concerns with faking. First, if people fake their responses to personality tests, the resulting scores and the inferences drawn from them might become invalid. For example, people who fake their responses by describing themselves as diligent and prompt might earn better conscientiousness scores, and therefore be hired for jobs requiring this trait that in fact they might not perform satisfactorily. Second, the dishonesty of the faker might itself be a problem, separate from its effect on a particular score. Someone who lies on a pre-employment test might also lie about the hours he or she works, or how much cash is in the till at the end of the shift.
Finding Life Beyond Trauma: Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to Heal from Post-Traumatic Stress and Trauma-Related Problems
If you've experienced trauma—whether as a result of common life events like accidents or abusive personal relationships or extraordinary experiences like war or natural disasters—you may find that the pain and emotional unease you feel don't go away over time. In fact, they may get worse. But the trauma you experienced lies in the unchangeable past. Because of your strength and perseverance, you survived, and now the rest of your life stretches before you. How do you want to live it? Finding Life Beyond Trauma is about living life well after a traumatic event. It uses the powerful techniques of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help you take a different approach to painful feelings and chart a new course for a rich and meaningful life.
Mindfulness-Oriented Interventions for Trauma: | Victoria M. Follette
Mindfulness-Oriented Interventions for Trauma: Integrating Contemplative Practices
Grounded in research and accumulated clinical wisdom, this book describes a range of ways to integrate mindfulness and other contemplative practices into clinical work with trauma survivors. The volume showcases treatment approaches that can be tailored to this population's needs, such as mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), and mindful self-compassion (MSC), among others. Featuring vivid case material, the book explores which elements of contemplative traditions support recovery and how to apply them safely. Neurobiological foundations of mindfulness-oriented work are examined. Treatment applications are illustrated for specific trauma populations, such as clients with chronic pain, military veterans, and children and adolescents.

Internationalizing the Curriculum | Richard Griffith, L. Foster-Thomspon & B. Armon
Internationalizing the Curriculum in Organizational Psychology
This book assembles state-of-the-art thinking on the internationalization of the curriculum of training centers in I/O and Work Psychology. The experts contributing chapters share their thoughts on the knowledge and skills that students must master in the 21st century, as well as their research on how we can develop students to be globally perceptive, culturally competent working professionals. Chapters cover a full range of topics such as: the scope of subject matter and content, learning objectives and outcomes, global competencies, co-curricular activities, experiential learning and the tacit curriculum, while curriculum development must stem from the philosophy of each institution, these philosophies may diverge in focus (e.g. science versus practice) and outcomes (e.g. jobs versus mastery). Therefore, the goal of the book is not to prescribe a particular curriculum, but rather to provide insight on possible curriculum elements that may be customized for use by training institutions.
The goal of this well known book is to provide methods for understanding major EEO laws, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Equal Pay Act of 1963, and the American with Disabilities Act of 1990. Also included are over 700 cases involving federal case law that focus on issues relating to the terms and conditions of employment. New to this third edition are sections at the end of each chapter on "Implications for Practice." These accessible sections will give organizations and managers practical advice on strategies and guidelines for implementing laws and guidelines. A website of additional case materials, power points, and teaching aids accompany this book.
