Abstract
This comprehensive guide describes evolving technologies in the field of mental and behavioral health. Contributors to this book demonstrate how technology fosters better access to care, through video teleconferencing systems, mental health-related apps, and other tools. Technological advances can also lead to improved treatments, through virtual reality, neurofeedback, and other device-based protocols that complement pharmacological treatments and psychotherapy. Authors also illustrate the many ways technology can be used to further professional development, whether by improving the quality of one's work, or transforming research and clinical insights into innovative business practices. There are many ways to provide technology-based or technology-assisted mental health services. This book helps clinical and counseling professionals determine which technological advances best align with their goals, and strategically consider how they will purchase new tools and train users, while ensuring clients' personal health information is protected.

Abstract
In this book, expert researchers and practitioners share essential information about providing mental health services to older adults in forensic contexts, and to the courts and judges involved. As the U.S. population ages, the needs of older adults will increasingly inform all areas of mental health practice. In coming years, psychologists can expect to play a more prominent role in helping legal decision makers to understand the unique aspects of older adults'cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning. Clinical providers will have more opportunity to help older adults and their families as they struggle with challenging legal issues such as civil litigation, eligibility for benefits, and incarceration. Chapters in this book describe the nuts and bolts of civil litigation as it relates to brain injury, dementia, PTSD, and pain; assessment of competency to stand trial and to be executed; and the special treatment needs of incarcerated older adults. Also included are chapters on assessing testamentary capacity, assessing older adults pursuing VA benefits, and psychology's role in guardianship and conservatorship decisions.

Abstract
Interprofessional Evidence-Based Practice: A Workbook for Health Professionals promotes active, team learning of interprofessional evidence-based practice (EBP). This text is distinctive in that it departs from the tradition of EBP occurring from a single disciplinary perspective. Interprofessional EBP is described in terms of a dynamic team process that blends the patient's preferences and values, and the expertise of practitioners from multiple disciplines, and incorporates multidisciplinary evidence. Teams learn to use the nine phases in the interprofessional process to challenge current disciplinary paradigms and biases to create an integrated approach to patient care, health care delivery, or population health. Drs. Penelope Moyers and Patricia Finch-Guthrie focus on developing and fostering collaboration between academic institutions and health care organizations so that students and faculty participate on interprofessional teams with mentors and staff from a health care organization. Interprofessional Evidence-Based Practice: A Workbook for Health Professionals also addresses the communication and cross-organizational factors important for supporting the work of the team. The text provides detail for developing and launching an interprofessional EBP program that goes beyond the evidence process to include implementation science to support practice change. Approaches for developing partnerships for supporting this type of program between universities and health care institutions are contained within, including sample partnership agreements and resource-sharing strategies. Inside Interprofessional Evidence-Based Practice: A Workbook for Health Professionals, each chapter includes performance objectives, key words, checklists, and materials and resources that an interprofessional team can use. PowerPoint lectures, mentor newsletters, forms, tools, and other resources are included on a companion website to guide team learning about key EBP topics, as well as to support the program coordinators and team mentors in their work with the interprofessional teams. Interprofessional Evidence-Based Practice: A Workbook for Health Professionals is the go-to resource for those who want to engage in interprofessional EBP, and for leaders who want to develop and implement an interprofessional EBP program.

Abstract
Societal awareness of transgender and gender-nonconforming (TGNC) individuals is greater now than at any point in history, owing to the education of policy makers by advocacy organizations, the education of clinicians by research and scientific organizations, and the education of the general public by movies, television, and other media. However, most professional training programs for mental health professionals provide little to no education regarding gender diversity. Transgender Mental Health squarely addresses this deficit. This guide forgoes clinical jargon in favor of accessible, straightforward language designed to educate clinicians on how to address the basic needs of the TGNC community, thus increasing access to mental health care for TGNC individuals, which has been sorely lacking to this point. Rich in cases drawn from real clinical experience, the guide is organized into four sections. The first section includes a discussion of the gender spectrum and offers a history of the TGNC experience. This section also covers advocacy, particularly letter writing for gender marker changes and gender-affirming surgeries. The second section is dedicated to mental health factors in TGNC care and examines sex and sexuality, support systems, and transitioning and detransitioning. The third of the guide's sections addresses general physical health with TGNC individuals, including masculinizing and feminizing hormones, with an eye toward preparing practitioners to address the social, psychological, and physical needs of their patients. The final section discusses all major gender-affirming surgical procedures, as well as nonsurgical interventions. Each chapter includes summarizing key points and review questions at the end that not only test the reader's comprehension of the material but also provide additional information on the complicated political, social, and cultural barriers that many TGNC individuals experience as they attempt to secure adequate care. Relevant for a range of mental health professionals, including psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, psychologists, social workers, family therapists, and school counselors, Transgender Mental Health is a simple yet thorough primer on the complex topic of gender diversity.
