Out in Time explores the life experiences of three generations of gay men — the Stonewall, AIDS, and Queer generations — arguing that while there are generational differences in the lived experiences of young gay men, and each one confronts its own unique historical events, realities, and socio-political conditions, there are consistencies across time that define and unify the identities of gay men.

In WELL, physician Sandro Galea examines what Americans miss when they fixate on healthcare: health. A deeply affecting work that is at once rigorous and person, Well examines the subtle and not-so-subtle factors that determine who gets to be healthy in America. Sandro Galea argues that the country's failing health is a product of the society and culture Americans have built for ourselves — not just in lifestyle, but in the separations entrenched across the spectrum of American experience.

Therapists help their patients improve through a combination of words and a therapeutic relationship. To do this effectively, practitioners need to know not only what to intervene on (i.e., how to identify and understand clinical problems) but also how to intervene (viz., what techniques to use). This book teaches therapists how to develop and use the many techniques of psychodynamic psychotherapy. Along with providing step-by-step instructions for techniques, it also describes the characteristics of "good" interventions and provides tips for assessing their effectiveness.

Positive body image entails appreciating, loving, respecting, nurturing, protecting, and seeing beauty in the body regardless of its consistency with media appearance ideals. Embodiment reflects a connection between the mind and the body, which have a continual dialectical relationship with the world, and includes positive body connection, body agency and functionality, attuned self-care, positive experiences with body desires, and living in the body as a subjective rather than objectified site. This 37-chapter handbook reviews current knowledge on positive body image and embodiment, as well as future directions for work in these areas, which will be useful for mental health researchers, practitioners, advocates, and activists.
