Recommended Reading

I’m currently reading: Kaplan and Sadock’s Concise Textbook of Clinical Psychiatry by Benjamin J. Sadock and Virginia A. Sadock

These are all books I’ve read myself and recommend to either other therapist, those interested in psychotherapy or those looking for self-help resources. I’m sure there is something here you’ll find interesting.  I could include a bunch of my favorite text books but those aren’t always easy to read, easy to find or easy to afford so I’ll try to keep this list focused on books that I think people will actually go out and buy/checkout and enjoy:
