Sharpless publishes “Unusual and Rare Psychological Disorders” handbook

Brian A. Sharpless, PhD, associate professor of clinical psychology at The American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Northern Virginia recently released Unusual and Rare Psychological Disorders - A Handbook for Clinical Practice and Research through Oxford University Press.

According to Sharpless, “Many fascinating and important psychological disorders are either omitted from our current diagnostic systems or rarely covered during graduate or medical training. As a result, most mental health students and trainees are never taught to identify, diagnose, or treat them. This lack of attention has real-world consequences not only for patients, but for basic science as well. Unusual and Rare Psychological Disorders collects and synthesizes the scientific and clinical literatures for 21 lesser-known conditions. The coverage is broad, ranging from exploding head syndrome and koro to body integrity identity disorder and persistent genital arousal disorder. All chapters follow a uniform structure and introduce each disorder with a vivid clinical vignette. After discussing the historical and cultural contexts for the disorder, authors describe the typical symptoms, associated features, current role in diagnostic systems (if any), and etiologies. Clinically relevant information on assessment and differential diagnosis is also provided. Finally, authors review the treatment options and suggest future directions for research. This unique and engaging volume will not only be a useful resource for researchers and clinicians who already possess expertise in the more well-known manifestations of psychopathology, but it will also be of interest to students and trainees in the mental health professions.”

Sharpless has authored over 35 publications on various topics related to psychopathology, psychotherapy, and the history and philosophy of clinical psychology. His previous book, Sleep Paralysis: Historical, Psychological, and Medical Perspectives, co-authored with Karl Doghramji, MD, is also available through Oxford University Press.

Northern Virginia’s Dr. Aziz Presents at Two Conferences

Dr. Nahid Aziz, Associate Professor, Clinical Psychology Programs, the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Northern Virginia, recently presented at the annual conference of Association for  Women in Psychology in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Her presentation was titled The Complex Identity of 21st Century Immigrant Women: The Role of Positionality, Self-reflexivity, and Intersectionality.


Dr. Aziz’s presentation explored how globalization affects women differently depending on geographical and social contexts and what does the concept of “well-being” encompasses from an immigrant's perspective. She also discussed an action plan towards developing collaborative networks across disciplines, in hopes of analyzing subjectivities across contexts through the concepts of positionality, self-reflexivity, and intersectionality.


On April 13, 2017, Dr. Aziz will present at the 9th Annual Muslim Mental Health Conference held at the Michigan State University, department of Psychiatry of Muslim Mental Health. There, she’ll discuss the topic of Exploring Acculturation Experiences and Psychosocial well-being of the First and Second Generation Afghan Muslim Women: A Phenomenological Approach. She will share the results of her qualitative phenomenological study which she conducted with the first and second immigrant Muslim women that was an in-depth look at the lived experiences of self-identified Afghan Muslim women and their daughters living in the US. Her study focused on the psychosocial distress that has been experienced by Afghan women in the process of acculturation and adjustment in the new host country.
