|Title:||Do Self-Help Books for Psychological Problems Actually Help?||Contributor(s):||Malouff, John M (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/6185||Abstract:||If you start experiencing a psychological problem like depression or marital discord, you might think about reading a self-help book specific to your problem. There are a wide range of books from which to choose. 'The Authoritative Guide to Self-Help Materials in Mental Health' by Norcross and colleagues (2003) groups hundreds of self-help books by problem (eg, obsessive-compulsive disorder) and gives a summary and rating for each. Some self-help bestsellers of recent years include David Burns' 'Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy' (1999) and John Gray's 'Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus: a Practical Guide to Improving Communication and Getting What You Want Out of a Relationship' (1992).||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||The Skeptic, 25(1), p. 51-53||Publisher:||Australian Skeptics Inc||Place of Publication:||Australia||ISSN:||0726-9897||Field of Research (FOR):||170106 Health, Clinical and Counselling Psychology||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||920209 Mental Health Services||HERDC Category Description:||C3 Non-Refereed Article in a Professional Journal||Other Links:||http://www.skeptics.com.au/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/theskeptic/2005/1.pdf
