Published/Hosted by American Orthopsychiatric Association.
Readings is a very special publication. The only interdisciplinary journal that focuses exclusively on books of interest to mental health professionals. A wide range of new books are covered in an easy-to-read and attractive format that features the finest writing to be found in any journal. Each issue includes major essay-reviews by leaders in the field as well as a comprehensive section of brief reviews prepared by specialists drawn exclusively from within the Ortho membership. While anchored in the mental health literature, Readings reaches out to other areas; law, sociology, philosophy, political science, literature that have a bearing on mental health practice and policy. And Readings is an unusually handsome mental health journal, in which essays are illustrated by fine black-and-white photography. Recently, there has been an explosion of book publishing for the mental health professional. And new journals sprout like mushrooms, covering the field's every niche and crevice. Rather than adding just one more piece to the mounting pile of professional reading, Readings can help make it easier to manage. It can serve as a guide to choosing the the best and most relevant of the new professional books. More so than any other journal, Readings constitutes a concise and attractive means of keeping abreast of the literature. Discontinued in 2001. Back issues available.
