Series: title


The 10 chapters and short communication compiled in this volume fall under the broad topic of psychology research and run the gamut from research on body image to risk factors for postpartum depression. Others cover the construction of knowledge of self and culture, the role of omega-3 fatty acids in the prevention and management of neuropsychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders, bullying in schools, perspectives on time estimation, the role of the brain- derived neurotrophic factor in bipolar disorder, the coping experiences of new parents, dementia, treatment approaches for cocaine dependence, and the relationship between childhood sexual abuse and borderline personality disorder. Contributing authors work in dietetics, education, psychology, neurology, substance abuse, epidemiology, preventive medicine, and psychiatry around the world. One chapter is an excerpt of a NCES report. The preface is an amalgamation of abstracts; it includes an introductory quote from one article as if it were its abstract, revealing the lack of attention given by the editors to the focus and content of the articles. In addition, one chapter has grammar errors suggestive of poor editing.
