Reunification Family Therapy
by Jan Faust
Childhood problems are often related to and exacerbated by the disintegration of the family structure. Reunification therapy is a therapeutic process incorporating different empirically based methods (CBT, humanistic, and systemic) to help repair relationships between parents and children and restore not only physical contact but also meaningful social, emotional, and interpersonal exchanges between parents and children.

Tracking Opportunities and Problems From Infancy to Adulthood
edited by Kristin S. Mathiesen / Ann V. Sanson / Evalill B. Karevold
This book provides a succinct, accessible, and integrated summary of the Tracking Opportunities and Problems (TOPP) Study – a unique longitudinal project that began in 1993 following a community sample of nearly 1,000 children and their families in Norway. Eight waves of data collection have created an extensive database on many aspects of child and family life, providing new knowledge about precursors, development paths and predictors of good adaptation as well as behavioral and mental health problems, not only of the children but also of their parents.

Mechanisms of Mental Disorders
edited by Alfons O. Hamm
Our understanding of the mechanisms guiding adaptive behavior and normal psychological functioning and of how these processes become disrupted in various forms of mental disorders has increased but translating the results of basic psychological research into clinical practice is still in the early stages.

Latest from our journals
The new European Journal of Health Psychology
Starting in the new year, the European Journal of Health Psychology will be joining our stable of journals. Previously published in German as the Zeitschrift für Gesundheitspsychologie, EJHP brings together two areas that are at the heart of Hogrefe’s publishing activities: health and psychology.
Claus Vögele, Luxembourg, Editor-in-Chief:
"As was the case for its predecessor, the European Journal of Health Psychology is dedicated to the publication of empirical or experimental research in health psychology, including applications, methodological developments, and comprehensive and critical literature reviews on the theory and application of psychological approaches to health and disease. Editors and publisher are convinced that the internationalization of the German Zeitschrift für Gesundheitspsychologie, which will also be reflected in an extended editorial board, will continue to contribute to the success of health psychology research and its implementation in health care."
