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.
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.
'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.
