What's hot and what's not in self-help
Date:3/21/2013

Self-help is a big business but, alas, not always a scientific one. 95% of self-help resources in mental health possess no scientific research attesting to their success. For every life challenge, there are dozens of self-help books to help individuals navigate, creating another problem: How do you find the self-help manual that's most effective? In SELF-HELP THAT WORKS, Dr. John C. Norcross and five scientist-practitioners identify the best and the worst of self-help manuals. Drawing on careful research, clinical expertise and national studies, they recommend self-help materials for 41 different behavioral disorders and life challenges.

The self-help movement has moved online and Dr. Norcross and his colleagues explore the effectiveness of online resources. SELF-HELP THAT WORKS provides print and online resources to navigate issues from Abuse to Divorce, Schizophrenia to Dementia/Alzheimer's, and PTSD to Sexuality. In addition to evaluating self-help texts, the authors recommend films, support groups and websites. The revised 4th edition of this award-winning book, previously titled Authoritative Guide to Self-Help Resources in Mental Health, has expanded, updated content and new chapters focusing on autism, bullying, chronic pain, GLB issues, happiness, and nonchemical addictions. The final chapters provide key strategies for consumers evaluating self-help as well as for professionals integrating self-help into treatment.

Altogether, SELF HELP THAT WORKS evaluates more than 2,000 self-help resources to give professionals and individuals the most up-to-date resources to change their lives.
