Methods for Disaster Mental Health Research. Edited by Fran H. Norris, Ph.D., research professor of psychiatry at DMS; Matthew J. Friedman, M.D., Ph.D., professor of psychiatry at DMS; et al. Guilford Press; 2006. This book examines research into the psychological effects on people and communities of largescale disasters and terrorism. It covers public mental health planning and evidence- based treatments for traumatic stress, as well as issues involved in the study of specific populations, such as children.
Clinical Neurophysiology of Infancy, Childhood, and Adolescence. By Gregory L. Holmes, M.D., professor of medicine at DMS; et al. Elsevier; 2006. Much of clinical neurophysiology is based on studies of adults; though many of the field's techniques can be modified for children, this textbook focuses on neurophysiologic testing specifically for children. It describes unique age-specific patterns as well as testing for seizures, toxic and degenerative diseases, head trauma, spinal muscular atrophies, and many other conditions.
