CBT and Psych Health Boiler Plate

#2  Postby Lazar » Feb 25, 2010 8:55 pm

Managed to rescue this from the flames:

Try mood gym for a good intro into CBT. Note that this is not a substitute for professional help but it will give you an idea what to expect.

Padesky is the leading researcher in this field. Her website with LOTS of good resources can be found
here

Authentic happiness (horrible name I know) has some decent resources that I have used on occasion. I have also taken many of the questionnaires and used them in research before and they are OK for certain things. In addition they sometimes run free trials on various well-being improvement techniques with results showing many of them can be reasonable effective and easily done at home.

Also try the following books:

Change your thinking and

Learned optimism

The APA locatoris good for finding a psychologist and the APA site itself has some good resources such as here and here.

Also try the following books:

Change your thinking and

Learned optimism

Evidence of CBTs effectiveness (care of Mr. Samsa)

Here's a review of some metanalyses of CBT

Drugs and therapy more effective than just drugs by themselves

CBT more effective than sleeping pills

There are some more links to research on the Wiki page: CBT

As for evidence for behavioral therapy in general, well we have a couple of journals, the main ones being: Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior (for the underpinning science of behavior) and Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis (for how those principles are used in applied settings).

Some tutorial videos from the Society for Quantitative Analyses of Behavior: here. Includes basic overviews and advanced lectures on behavioral topics ranging from evolution, choice theories, self control, reinforcement and Pavolvian conditioning, etc.

PsyCrit: A resource where various behavioral scientists submit semi-peer reviewed articles on various topics that generally don't fit into the usual journals. Some discussions on intelligence, language, parapsychology, neuropolitics, etc.

Not sure if this is better here or in biological sciences but since we are blurring the distinctions anyway. This free e-book is a primer in behavioral genetics for the interested lay person and comes from the publishers of the journal Science.

BEHAVIORAL GENETICS: An introduction to how genes and environments interact through development to shape differences in mood, personality, and intelligence This book is an introduction for non-scientists to the science of behavioral genetics and its broader ethical and social implications. Among the topics covered are how scientists explore the influence of genes and environment on behavior and how such research may challenge our understanding of human nature, personal responsibility, and equality. It is a product of a project on behavioral genetics conducted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and The Hastings Center.


Long long time since I read it but came across it again recently and thought others might find it useful. I do not remember it well but it starts it did do a good job from memory of cutting through the press of "x gene discovered" to explain the vast complexities which and not captured in this media tidbits. Not sure how out of date it is as it is a bit over a decade old.

Enjoy :cheers:

EDIT: Oh while I am at it thanks to palindnilap :cheers: for tracking down this free full text version of the review of gene-culture evolution published in Nature Reviews: Genetics that I posted in the evolutionary psychology thread.

Highlighting major new developments in the field, this updated edition of Discovering Psychology offers high school and college students, and teachers of psychology at all levels, an overview of historic and current theories of human behavior. Stanford University professor and author Philip Zimbardo narrates as leading researchers, practitioners, and theorists probe the mysteries of the mind and body.

Based on extensive investigation and authoritative scholarship, this introductory course in psychology features demonstrations, classic experiments and simulations, current research, documentary footage, and computer animation. This series is also valuable for teachers seeking to review the subject matter. Produced by WGBH Boston with the American Psychological Association. 1990, 2001.

Andy Tompson's "Why We Believe in Gods" is a good introduction to neuropsych research into religious belief.

Here's an interesting lecture on the relationship between emotions and decision making. [Sorry, couldn't embed it.]

How to Improve Your Self-Control (link courtesy of Chairman Bill)

and an interesting book I'm reading: Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions , by MIT behavioral economist Dan Ariely.
Image
Irrational behavior is a part of human nature, but as MIT professor Ariely has discovered in 20 years of researching behavioral economics, people tend to behave irrationally in a predictable fashion. Drawing on psychology and economics, behavioral economics can show us why cautious people make poor decisions about sex when aroused, why patients get greater relief from a more expensive drug over its cheaper counterpart and why honest people may steal office supplies or communal food, but not money. According to Ariely, our understanding of economics, now based on the assumption of a rational subject, should, in fact, be based on our systematic, unsurprising irrationality. Ariely argues that greater understanding of previously ignored or misunderstood forces (emotions, relativity and social norms) that influence our economic behavior brings a variety of opportunities for reexamining individual motivation and consumer choice, as well as economic and educational policy.


A couple of other books that may be of interest:
Robert Cialdini, Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion
Image
Arguably the best book ever on what is increasingly becoming the science of persuasion. Whether you're a mere consumer or someone weaving the web of persuasion to urge others to buy or vote for your product, this is an essential book for understanding the psychological foundations of marketing. Recommended.


Elliot Aronson, The Social AnimalImage
A landmark text that maintains its relevance and unique approach edition after edition, The Social Animal offers a brief, compelling introduction to modern social psychology. Through vivid narrative, lively presentations of important research, and intriguing examples, Elliot Aronson probes the patterns and motives of human behavior, covering such diverse topics as terrorism, conformity, obedience, politics, race relations, advertising, war, interpersonal attraction, and the power of religious cults.

Free journals that focus on behavior analysis:
The Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior is primarily for the original publication of experiments relevant to the behavior of individual organisms.
Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior: Vols. 1 to 98; 1958 to 2012

The Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis publishes research about applications of the experimental analysis of behavior to problems of social importance.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis: Vols. 1 to 45; 1968 to 2012

The Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies is a nonprofit organization that harnesses the expertise of hundreds of behavioral scientists to solve problems in the home, school, community, and the workplace.
