Summary

Praise for the previous edition:
"...a very useful resource..."—Booklist

"...has the qualities of a good desktop reference: convenient size, high-quality paper, legibility, cross-references, adequate breadth of coverage, but most important, fine writing and language that is accessible but does not condescend to general readers..."—Choice

"...solid information…Highly recommended for all libraries."—Library Journal

"Recommended."—The Book Report

Twenty percent of adult Americans—one in five—will experience a mental illness during their lifetime that is severe enough to require treatment, and many others have problems that prevent them from enjoying their lives on a daily basis.

The Encyclopedia of Mental Health, Third Edition is an up-to-date A-to-Z reference covering all aspects of general mental health topics. This accessible guide sorts through a maze of professional jargon to provide incisive definitions of theories, syndromes, symptoms, treatments, and contemporary issues, in language that everyone can understand, bringing readers the most up-to-date information on this subject. Presenting more than 2,000 new and updated entries with approximately 70,000 words of new text, this volume is the perfect resource for anyone dealing with this mental disorder.

Entries include:

  • Adoption
  • Depression
  • Domestic violence
  • Environmental hazards
  • Holistic medicine
  • Life-change rating scale
  • Nervous habits
  • Performance anxiety
  • Pharmacology
  • Reflexology
  • St. John's wort
  • Type A personality
  • The workplace.
