Pediatric Lens Diseases


This book focuses on disorders of the lens, which are a major cause of blindness in children. During development, children’s eyes have unique physiological and structural characteristics, such as an immature blood-aqueous barrier, which presents considerable challenges for ophthalmologists involved in the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric lens disorders. Throughout the book, the pathology, examination, anesthesia, surgical treatment and nursing care of pediatric lens disorders are discussed in detail.  It not only presents diverse pictures and images from clinical practice, it also includes the latest findings in the field. It will be of interest to ophthalmologists and paediatricians looking to improve the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric lens disorders and provide a valuable reference resource for all those involved in ophthalmic clinical practice, teaching and research.

The author dedicates an entire chapter of the book to discussing the methods and techniques used to assess the antiviral activity of probiotic strains and their metabolites.

Humanistic Psychotherapies: Handbook of Research and Practice


By (author): David J. Cain, Kevin Keenan, Shawn Rubin

Humanistic psychotherapy is based on more than 70 years of psychological research, but there has been a surge of literature since the first edition of Humanistic Psychotherapies. This extensively updated volume highlights the flourishing evidence base for humanistic approaches, demonstrating that they are equal to or more effective than other therapeutic approaches. In fact, cornerstones of humanistic practice, such as therapist empathy and authentic emotional expression and experience, are essential to promoting positive client outcomes for non-humanistic practitioners as well.

In addition to a general review of research, the contributors focus on specific approaches, including: person-centered therapy, gestalt therapy, focusing-oriented therapy, existential therapy, emotion-focused therapy, relationship enhancement therapy, and child-centered play therapy.

Also discussed are important therapist factors and client variables that contribute to effective psychotherapy.

New findings are translated into practical guidelines for clinicians. Numerous case examples with vivid client¬ therapist dialogues illustrate how humanistic principles and approaches can be applied in actual practice not just with individuals, but also with couples, families, and children. The final chapter synthesizes the entire volume with a proposed model for optimal humanistic psychotherapeutic practice, based on 20 simple premises drawn from the best evidence available.

What I Learned in Medical School: Personal Stories of Young Doctors


Like many an exclusive club, the medical profession subjects its prospective members to rigorous indoctrination: medical students are overloaded with work, deprived of sleep and normal human contact, drilled and tested and scheduled down to the last minute. Difficult as the regimen may be, for those who don’t fit the traditional mold—white, male, middle-to-upper class, and heterosexual—medical school can be that much more harrowing. This riveting book tells the tales of a new generation of medical students—students whose varied backgrounds are far from traditional. Their stories will forever alter the way we see tomorrow’s doctors.

In these pages, a black teenage mother overcomes seemingly insurmountable odds, an observant Muslim dons the hijab during training, an alcoholic hides her addiction. We hear the stories of an Asian refugee, a Mexican immigrant, a closeted Christian, an oversized woman—these once unlikely students are among those who describe their medical school experiences with uncommon candor, giving a close-up look at the inflexible curriculum, the pervasive competitive culture, and the daunting obstacles that come with being “different” in medical school. Their tales of courage are by turns poignant, amusing, eye-opening—and altogether unforgettable.
