SAGE and Alexander Street Press Collection Selected as a 2008 CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title
Los Angeles, London, New Delhi, Singapore, and Washington DC (January 13, 2009)—SAGE and Alexander Street Press’s Counseling and Psychotherapy Transcripts, Client Narratives, and Reference Works has been honored as a 2008 CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title.
It was chosen from among the 7,000+ titles reviewed in CHOICE each year for its excellence in scholarship, presentation, and the significance of its contribution to its field. The prestigious list reflects the best in scholarly titles reviewed by CHOICE and brings with it extraordinary recognition in the academic library community.
“This is a great resource,” said the CHOICE reviewer C. L. Hebblethwaite about Counseling and Psychotherapy Transcripts, Client Narratives, and Reference Works. “It pulls together in one place literature that may already be in many research libraries, but it also includes unique primary literature not easily accessed.”
Counseling and Psychotherapy Transcripts, Client Narratives, and Reference Works is a unique research and training resource for psychologists, social workers, counselors, therapists, and students of mental health and the social sciences. It contains over 2,000 transcripts of actual therapy sessions and major reference works, including non-fiction, first-person diaries, letters, autobiographies, oral histories, and personal memoirs, many of which has been made anonymous to protect patient privacy. The content has been thoroughly indexed, enabling researchers to find materials by diagnosis, symptoms, or patient demographics.
“SAGE and Alexander Street Press have continued to develop and enhance this product since its initial launch, adding additional content and user-friendly features based on feedback from faculty, students, librarians, and professionals,” said Stephen Rhind-Tutt, Alexander Street Press President. “We’re very pleased to be included in the CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title list this year, something that acknowledges the excellence of this content and the research experience that comes with it.”
