Recenzii

“With frequent references to popular media, Arkowitz and Lilienfeld cover a wide range of topics ranging from popular myths regarding diagnoses and psychopathology to whether animal–assisted therapies help, what to do about road rage, the use of electroshock therapy today, and whether lunar cycles can trigger odd behaviors … this book does an excellent job at offering easily digestible consumer–oriented information that debunks many popular myths related to mental health.”  PsycCRITIQUES, 62: 40 (2017)
