Psych City is a book that is used as a guide to organize a simulated community. The goal of the book is not only to create a simulated community, but also to provide opportunities for those involved in the experience to learn the events and patterns of life found in the community and examine the psychological, social, and political systems that are found in the community. The book is divided into two sections. Section I is the simulation proper, and gives detailed descriptions of simulated living conditions such as geography, population, housing, government, education, finance, and taxes. The first part also assigns the participants to the different roles they have to play and gives the community problems to solve. The second part is made up of sets of readings and exercises that pertain to the different situations found in the simulated community. The text is recommended for psychology, sociology, and anthropology professors that wish to give an interactive learning experience for the entire class, as well as those who wish to further study about community and conduct social experiments.
In his first book, Joshua Thomas expertly explains the dangers lurking within modern Mental Health Services and guides you towards sound and useful Psychological Therapy.

The author also describes what makes a Good Psychologist and Good Psychology, so you can get Good Psych, the therapy that does you good. At the core of the book is a fearless insight into real therapy with real case studies. Each case provides unique insights into the murky world of psychological therapy. “A refreshingly honest appraisal of the dysregulated mental health services that the public and practitioners are faced with. Essential reading for individuals and families to increase their chances of connecting with the right psychology practitioner and avoiding poor practices. Interestingly, the book is a useful text for new and established psychologists in appreciating and assessing their own readiness to provide good therapy.” - Dr Jake Anderson, B.B.Ns, Ph.D, M.Psych (Clinical)

Using the skills you've learned so far in Introduction to Psychology, please write a brief self-assessment describing how things are going in your freshman year. Presenting Concerns: The Patient, Leigh Nolan (that would be me), has just started her first year at Stiles College. She has decided to major in psychology (even though her parents would rather she study Tarot cards, not Rorschach blots). Patient has always been very good at helping her friends with their problems, but when it comes to solving her own . . . not so much. Patient has a tendency to overanalyze things, particularly when the opposite sex is involved. Like why doesn't Andrew, her boyfriend of over a year, ever invite her to spend the night? Or why can't she commit to taking the next step in their relationship? And why does his roommate Nathan dislike her so much? More importantly, why did Nathan have a starring role in a much-more-than-friendly dream? Aggravating factors include hyper-competitive fellow psych majors, a professor who's badly in need of her own psychoanalysis, and mentoring a middle-school-aged girl who thinks Patient is, in a word, naive. Diagnosis: Psych Major Syndrome
Major corporations are a part of world-wide industry. They keep the money flowing; they keep the economy rolling. But what is a corporation, really? To Detective Bruno Polidori of the Orlando Police Department, a corporation is nothing but a name on paper. The goings-on of these money-monsters have little to do with Bruno’s everyday life—that is, until one night, when everything goes wrong. An unusual energy flows across the Florida peninsula one night, and the “corporations” suddenly become living, breathing human beings. Not only are they now among the living, but Bruno begins to suspect these newly formed humans are criminal psychopaths. He’s seen his share before, working law enforcement, but nothing like this. These psychopaths don’t just want to wreak havoc; they want to bathe the city in greed. As the police department struggles to stop the psychopaths by brute force, Bruno struggles to understand the psychology of these corporate souls. Each one has a unique personality and pathology, and in order to stop them, he must get close enough to ruin them from the inside. Orlando is falling apart around him. Detective Bruno Polidori is its only hope ... if the corporations don’t kill him first.
