Counseling psychologists have led the field of professional psychology in many areas including psychotherapy, supervision, vocational psychology, consultation, the promotion of human strengths, and the use of humanistic and empowering approaches to mental health promotion and treatment. As such, the specialization may be one of the broadest, most flexible, and widely applicable specialties in the field of applied and professional psychology. In Specialty Competencies in Counseling Psychology, Fuertes, Spokane, and Holloway provide a striking balance of the rich history of the counseling specialty and a thorough articulation of the professional practice domains conducted by the counseling psychology specialist. The authors deliver informative examples of each foundational and functional domain of competency as well as a comprehensive discussion of the historic roots that support the specialty's leadership role in professional psychology. In addition to interested individuals who wish to learn about the specialization of counseling psychology, readers from all specialties who are committed to developing professional competencies in psychotherapy assessment and intervention, supervision, vocational psychology, consultation, and contemporary issues having to do with human diversity and multiculturalism will also be served well by reading this volume. In order to assist such readers, the authors successfully capture how counseling psychology interfaces and overlaps with the other psychology specialties yet also distinguishes itself from them. Series in Specialty Competencies in Professional Psychology Series Editors Arthur M. Nezu and Christine Maguth Nezu As the field of psychology continues to grow and new specialty areas emerge and achieve recognition, it has become increasingly important to define the standards of professional specialty practice. Developed and conceived in response to this need for practical guidelines, this series presents methods, strategies, and techniques for conducting day-to-day practice in any given psychology specialty. The topical volumes address best practices across the functional and foundational competencies that characterize the various psychology specialties, including clinical psychology, cognitive and behavioral psychology, school psychology, geropsychology, forensic psychology, clinical neuropsychology, couples and family psychology, and more. Functional competencies include common practice activities like assessment and intervention, while foundational competencies represent core knowledge areas such as ethical and legal issues, cultural diversity, and professional identification. In addition to describing these competencies, each volume provides a definition, description, and development timeline of a particular specialty, including its essential and characteristic pattern of activities, as well as its distinctive and unique features. Written by recognized experts in their respective fields, volumes are comprehensive, up-to-date, and accessible.

In its evolution, psychoanalysis has become a broad spectrum of theories making use of an approach that can be considered psychoanalytic in that it is based on the existence and importance of unconscious motivation.

The book is designed for all mental health professionals and will be very helpful to psychologists seeking to strengthen their background in psychoanalytic theory or treatment.

For the past 60 years, the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) has been the premier credentialing agency for psychologists. ABPP is increasingly recognized as a highly valuable standard of specialty competency through the board certification process. For specialty recognition, some jurisdictions require ABPP certification, with more states getting involved each year. Additionally, there is increasing recognition of the importance of the ABPP credential by employers such as hospitals and health service systems, and organizations such as the US Public Health Service, the US Department of Defense, and the Department of Veteran Affairs. This edited book provides a comprehensive description and hands-on, practical guide for individuals seeking certification from any one of the 13 specialty boards of the American Board of Professional Psychology. The book contains answers to frequent areas of inquiry and questions posed by potential candidates. In addition to providing a brief description of the history and mission of ABPP, the book offers step-by-step information concerning the "where, what, and how" of the board certification process. Finally, never-before offered information is provided, such as what pitfalls to avoid, and how to get further involved in the profession as a board certified psychologist.

Originally termed "Industrial-Organizational Psychology (I/O)," practitioners of this specialty emanate from varying backgrounds in business-psychology related fields. Although it was one of the "original four" specialties of the American Board of Professional Psychology established in 1947, the domain of contemporary I/O professional practice can best be thought of as a "hybrid" across multiple traditions. For this volume in the series, Jay Thomas describes this particular hybrid model. The original board reflecting the specialty of I/O psychology (i.e., the American Board of Industrial and Organizational Psychology) within the greater organization of the American Board of Professional Psychology (which at the time of this writing encompasses 13 differing specialty boards in professional psychology), reconstituted itself in 2005 to be the "American Board of Organizational and Business Consulting (OBC) Psychology." This name change was made in order to best capture the notion that specialists in this area can be educated and trained (and practice) in related, but somewhat differing traditions. Readers interested in this specialty area within psychology will find this text invaluable as the most current description of the competencies thought important to help define the OBC psychologist.

As professional psychology has transformed into the practice of psychology as a health profession, a substantial focus has been placed on defining the competencies required for practicing as health service providers. Not all health service providers, however, acquire the essential competencies needed for functioning in medical hospitals and health science center settings, the province of clinical health psychology. It is important to distinguish competencies for practicing as health service providers from competencies for the specialty practice of clinical health psychology. In Specialty Competencies in Clinical Health Psychology, Larkin and Klonoff provide a comprehensive overview of recent efforts to define specialty competencies for the practice of clinical health psychology. They have been at the table for every national conversation focusing on this topic and share this knowledge with those who desire to become clinical health psychologists and those who train and supervise them.
