"Behavioral Addictions is a timely landmark achievement and a must read for anyone interested in addictive and compulsive behavior and its treatment. Rosenberg and Feder have brought us leading addiction experts, who clearly present the growing evidence for including behavioral addictions in the DSM-5 and how best to treat them. While gambling is the first to be included in the DSM-5 chapter on substance related disorders, other behavioral addictions are likely to follow as evidence grows. This is the most important new textbook in addiction psychiatry in recent years." - Richard Frances MD, Founding President, American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry
DSM-V broke new ground in May of 2013, designating a new disorder called "behavioral addiction." Clinicians immediately wanted to know: how is a behavioral addiction different from an impulse control disorder? What are the criteria for determining that some behaviors are addictions rather than impulses? What, if anything, does this mean in terms of effective treatment?
Behavioral Addictions is the first and most authoritative text ever written on the subject of behavioral addictions. This comprehensive work explains the criteria used to determine addiction, the evidence for identifying assorted behaviors as addictions, and the evidence-based treatment for each.
With contributions from preeminent experts covering an exhaustive list of behavioral addictions, this book is unique in its coverage of behavioral addictions, their criteria, and treatment. It is a valuable and timely resource for any clinician treating addictions.

Resumen (en inglés): Exactly one hundred years ago, Jung coined the term ‘Analytical Psychology’ to differentiate his theories about the nature and dynamics of the human psyche from those of his compatriot, Freud, and Freudian ‘Psychoanalysis’. Although regarded as a body of thought and therapeutic practice in its own right, Analytical Psychology has continued to encourage and incite dialogue and debate with many other academic traditions and fields of study, beyond its psychological and psychiatric disciplinary origins. Academic research into Analytical Psychology is subsequently found in a wide variety of fields and areas of study—including but not limited to, philosophy, political thought, literature, religious studies, education, sociology, film and media, fine art and art history, neuroscience, quantum physics, environmental studies. Its widespread appeal demonstrates its usefulness in clarifying the nature of our human behaviours and interactions, and for establishing important links between otherwise disparate disciplines.
This special issue will show case a range of different applications of Jungian thought and practice, and to that end, we welcome submissions from any disciplinary perspective, and also any academic approach (theoretical, empirical, historical, cultural, or otherwise). Papers are especially welcome that employ interdisciplinary perspectives or reveal the impact of Analytical Psychology on other disciplines or fields of study.
