APA therapy video database, handbooks and children’s books win publishing awards

National organizations praised several APA products and publications in 2012.

APA’s newest database, several handbooks and a number of Magination Press children’s books received honors last year from CHOICE magazine, the Mom’s Choice Awards and others.

PsycTHERAPY, APA’s database of more than 300 therapy demonstration videos, along with “Cop Watch: Spectators, Social Media, and Police Reform” and the APA Addiction Syndrome Handbook were included on the CHOICE magazine annual Outstanding Academic Title list. They were selected for “excellence in scholarship and presentation, the significance of their contribution to the field, and their value as important – often the first – treatment of their subject,” according to the magazine.

Chillax!: How Ernie Learns to Chill Out, Relax, and Take Charge of His Anger,” the first graphic novel ever published by Magination Press, was also awarded the 2012 Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards Gold Medal in the comic/graphic novel category.

Additionally, “Sally Sore Loser: A Story About Winning and Losing” and “Toodles and Teeny: A Story About Friendship,” both also from Magination Press, were named among the best in family-friendly media, products and services by The Mom’s Choice Awards.
