About Us


Founded in 1967 and headquartered in Philadelphia, The Charles Press Publishers is a small independent publisher of reference, scholarly, textbooks and trade books in the fields of medicine and the behavioral and social sciences. Our titles cover a broad range of subjects, including psychology, health and health care, sociology, aging, eldercare, suicide, death and dying, grief, loss and bereavement, parenting, reference, counseling, self-help, criminology and true crime, comparative religion, pets and veterinary medicine.


Our goal is to publish books that offer valuable teaching solutions, approaches, and perspectives to the disciplines and markets we focus on. While we are always guided by the needs and demands of our markets, we continually strive to publish books that fulfill the practical needs of professionals, the informational needs of general readers who are seeking effective approaches to challenges in life, the learning experiences of students and the teaching needs of instructors.
