One of our New Year’s resolutions here at the OUPblog was to pay more attention to our friends in the Medical department. Well we are proud to say that this is one resolution we are sticking to (unlike that silly idea of losing weight!) and today we introduce Medical Mondays. From now on, when you visit the OUPblog on Monday morning there will be a marvelous, meaningful, medical post waiting for you (we promise, this will be the only Monday we mangle with m-word alliteration.)
Here is a taste of the great books and authors we will introduce you to this month:
- Buried In Treasure by David F. Tolin, Randy O. Frost, Gail Steketee, a guide for helping compulsive hoarders. For some holiday advice from these authors, click here.
The Mark of Shame: Stigma of Mental Illness and an Agenda for Change by Stephen P. Hinshaw, provides practical advice for overcoming the stigma of mental illness.
Violent Video Game Effects on Children and Adolescents: Theory, Research, and Public Policy by Craig A. Anderson, Douglas A. Gentile and Katherine E. Buckley, looks at current research to see if claims that violent games contribute to aggressive and violent behavior are true.
Raising and Educating a Deaf Child: A Comprehensive Guide to the Choices, Controversies, and Decisions Faced by Parents and Educators 2nd edition, by Marc Marschark, is not a “how-to” book but rather a guide through the various difficult and conflicting decisions parents of deaf children face.
Are you ready? Medical Mondays here we come!
