More than 1300 Web Sites and Resources for Mental Health Professionals

Since the publication of the DSM-IV Internet Companion in 1998, the Internet has grown and changed. Robert F. Stamps and his new coauthor, Peter M. Barach, have completely revised and updated the original directory of Web sites for mental health professionals.

The Therapist's Internet Handbook includes capsule summaries of more than 1300 sites, keyed to DSM-IV categories. Alongside the capsule summary, the authors include commentary, list its features, identify the links provided on that site, and qualify it in terms of usefulness. Unique to this book are completely new sections on criminal justice sites, general medical sites, and a series of helpful hints for successful Web research. Included with the book is a handy CD-ROM, with active links to all the sites discussed.

As the Internet continues to grow, professionals who utilize it will benefit from its speed and inexhaustible scope. For savvy mental health professionals, this book will become an essential, well-thumbed reference.

Advance Acclaim

'At last! Here is a full service resource for mental health professionals who search the Internet to keep current in their practices. It covers mental conditions, links to mental health metasites, data bases, libraries, mental health law, criminal justice and more. Therapist's Internet Handbook is as important to the web user as the telephone directory is for their telephone.'

Jack G. Wiggins, Ph.D., Psy.D. A past President of the American Psychological Association
'This is truly a book for the twenty-first century. The authors have created an extraordinary reference book which every mental health professional, regardless of their relative ability on the computer, should have as an essential guide to rapidly locate and utilize the extraordinary, exponentially infinite knowledge and materials presented on the Internet about mental illnesses and associated conditions. Just thumbing through the existing Web sites at the turn of the century, it's amazing, and each of these has linkages to other sites so that utilization of the Internet should become an everyday exercise for mental health professionals who want to be on the cutting edge.'

-Paul Jay Fink, M.D.
Professor of Psychiatry, Temple University School of Medicine Past President, American Psychiatric Association
