9780132397278: Clinical Psychology: A Modern Health Profession

Introduces students to Clinical Psychology by portraying the field as a health profession that uses cognition, emotion and somatic principles to help understand, assess and modify health showcasing the field in its reality.

 

For undergraduate sophomore/junior level Clinical Psychology courses.

 

The authors approached the task as beginning with an appreciation for the problems that the profession needs to solve which makes it easy to relate to them as ‘real’. This book is distinct because it

  • Has a fresh approach to learning, encouraging problem solving rather than lecturing
  • Offers an international perspective
  • Views clinical psychology as an integrative health care profession and not just a mental health care field
  • Integrates social and biological bases of behavior
  • Presents material pertaining to the realities of being a clinical psychologist.

About the Author:

Author #1:

Wolfgang Linden is a Full Professor in Clinical Psychology whose work has centered on psychological factors in the etiology, prevention, and treatment of cardiovascular disorders and cancer. He has taught ‘Introduction to Clinical Psychology’ as a 2-semester, 4th year undergraduate course for over 20 years at the University of British Columbia. His course is organized as a co-op environment such that students spend an additional half-day per week in a clinical or clinical research placement to gather hands-on experience. This teaching model is so appealing to students that the available spots in the course usually fill within 24 hours of open registration. Dr. Linden received clinical training and accumulated clinical experience over three decades, in three countries, and in two languages. He maintains a private practice, has twice served as Director of Clinical Training in UBC’s APA/CPA accredited training program, and volunteered a great deal of time for improvements in mental health care delivery. He takes pride in having developed a research program that bridges experimental research in the laboratory with descriptive and intervention studies in clinical populations. Dr. Linden’s work has appeared in 6 books and roughly 130 peer-reviewed journal publications and book chapters.

 

Author #2:

Dr. Paul L. Hewitt is a Full Professor of Psychology in the Department of Psychology at the University of British Columbia and a practicing Clinical Psychologist in the Vancouver, British Columbia metropolitan area. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Saskatchewan in 1988 and completed his clinical residency at the University of Washington Health Sciences Center in Seattle, Washington. He has been conducting research on perfectionism and psychopathology since his undergraduate training and has published over 130 refereed journal articles, 17 chapters, and 3 books. His research and writing focuses extensively on perfectionism and maladaptive outcomes such as suicide, depression, and interpersonal problems, although he also publishes in the suicide and eating disorder literatures. Dr. Hewitt’s clinical work tends to focus on individuals experiencing difficulties from perfectionism and conducts workshops, training seminars, symposia, and educational media presentations regarding perfectionism and clinical psychology more generally. He is asked regularly to speak at national and international conferences and meetings on his perfectionism research and treatment. Lastly, Dr. Hewitt’s teaching involves courses on clinical psychology, psychopathology, assessment, and psychotherapy. He has specific interests in the training of psychotherapists but also enjoys teaching introductory psychology courses.
