Brains and Beauty

We have a couple of books at our Friends1 Amazon storefront that will be of interest to those readers in any way involved with counseling.

The DSM-IV Casebook: A Learning Companion To The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th Ed.) (Hardcover) is exactly what its title says -- a casebook that allows students in the field to use the DSM-IV clinical manual with ease and some authority. The comments on 
amazon by people who have purchased this book really say it all. Our copy appears to be brand-new, never used. It is $18 at RestonFriends1.

Also useful to those working in the mental health field is 
Psychiatric  Care Plans: Guidelines for Individualizing Care.  It bills itself as a "quick reference manual on critical thinking and nursing processes." It comes with a CD -- which is still sealed. It appears this book was never used. $18 at RestonFriends1.

And to offer something lighter and more soul-feeding, Reston Friends brings you Annie Leibovitz at Work, a hardcover book published in 2008. One of the strengths of the work is that those reviewers who purchased it expecting a very different kind of "how to" book, were still so enchanted by it that they loved the book. We offer it for $24 at RestonFriends1.

Remember, if you are a current local Friend of Reston Regional Library, you can
 purchase any of these books without incurring shipping charges. Just e-mail us!
