Okay, first the serious, non-fiction stuff...I am specifically looking for any of the following NON-FICTION books:

Betrayal in Psychotherapy and Its Antidotes:  Challenges for Patients and Therapists

The Betrayal Bond (Carnes)

Borderline Personality Disorder:  A Clinical Guide (Gunderson)

Borderline Personality Disorder:  Clinical and Empirical Perspectives

Borderline Personality Disorder (Medical Psychiatry)

Court of Last Resort:  Mental Illness and the Law


And for the interesting stuff---

Looking for any fiction with psychologists/psychiatrists as main characters.  (some people collect first editions, I collect shrink novels...)

Kellerman I have, Stephen (not Scott) White I have.  Ditto for Caleb Carr.  I have misc. other single authors and titles but if anyone knows of another good series , please let me know.  Something new would make a lovely Christmas/Birthday present to myself.  Please send me a PM.

FYI - It is against PBS rules to offer more than 1 credit for a book, regardless of how rare it is or how bad you want it.

I wish you good luck on finding the books you are looking for, though!

Have you read The Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy?  I have a paperback copy on my shelf, and everything is two for one.

A series I enjoy along Kellerman's line is by Stephen White.  He has a series about Allan Gregory a psychologist.  Good series IMHO.

Thanks, all for the responses.

Stephen White is the one I meant when I wrote Scott White.  Not enough caffeine.  It is a good series.  I think I am missing only one out of it.  Prince of Tides was also good, although I hated the violence of the ending; a little too graphic for me.  I could see it coming, but wasn't prepared for how in-depth it was described.  The Analyst, by Jonathan Katzenbach is creepy, but you have to put yourself back into the mindset when the internet and cellphones weren't what they are today.  August, bu Judith Rossner is a old standard, too.

The non-fiction books I am seeking are the specific ones I listed.  I'm trying to fill some holes in my professional collection.

Thanks again SO much for the responses!!!!
