Clinical Handbook of Emotion-Focused Therapy

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Clinical Handbook of Emotion-Focused Therapy
Dec 152018
 

 

Through Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), clients learn to rule their emotions, instead of letting their emotions rule them. With guidance from a skilled EFT therapist to help them identify, experience, accept, and tolerate difficult emotions, people can learn to regulate, explore, make sense of, transform, and flexibly manage their emotions. As a result, they become more skilled in responding adaptively to situations as they arise.

EFT therapists help individuals and couples engage in productive emotional processing. They also offer methods to help clients become aware of their emotional needs. In this book readers will learn to:

– conceptualize clients’ core emotions in order to form a focus of therapy
– guide clients through the process of emotional change, and
– structure therapy in an ongoing fashion, recognize key emotional markers, and facilitate the tasks needed to move to the next phase.

This handbook offers a comprehensive tour of EFT research and applications for all common mental health issues including depression, anxiety, interpersonal trauma, personality disorders, and eating disorders.

Handbook of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo : Diagnosis and Treatment

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Handbook of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo : Diagnosis and Treatment
Dec 152018
 


Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is a clinical syndrome (or disorder) marked by the recurrent attacks of vertigo or dizziness, provoked by lying down or turning over in the supine position (i.e. when the head changes position in relation to the vector of gravity). It is the most frequent vestibular syndrome, with a lifetime prevalence of 10% by the age of 80.

The clinician who deals with vertiginous patients ought to be familiar with this disorder. The general practitioner should be able to suspect BPPV from the history of the patient in order to refer the patient correctly and save unnecessary time as well as costs for the patient.

This book is a relatively brief, but accurate approach to the diagnosis and treatment of BPPV. It is accompanied by high quality color figures of the most principal diagnostic and therapeutic maneuvers, so that they can be understood by clinicians and physiotherapists of both advanced and basic levels of knowledge for the topic. Figures of the maneuvers are accompanied by 3D and 2D (where appropriate) illustrations of the labyrinth with semicircular canals and otoconia placement in the lumen of the affected canal; through this way, pathophysiology becomes evident to the reader. A brief, but comprehensive report of treatment maneuvers as they are introduced by the most recent and reliable researchers is provided. Chapter Six is focused on the most principal evidence based data.

Special care has been given to the chapter on differential diagnosis of BPPV, because clinical entities that can manifest with symptoms mimicking BPPV can also be associated with true BPPV. These two ways of BPPV being clinically associated with vestibular pathology are also discussed, based on abundant literature references. This is a truly unique effort to offer the reader a detailed approach to these delicate clinical matters, which are not routinely reported with such clarity, accuracy and detail.

Another practical issue of premium importance is failure of treatment and further measures. Up-to-date information is also provided in this last chapter.

This book has been an effort to offer specialized knowledge – both at a basic and advanced level – in a clear, structured and pleasant-to-read presentation.

Compiled by nearly two dozen contributors and edited by four leading neurologists from the Cleveland Clinic, this comprehensive point form review presents thelatest research, data, and knowledge on all aspects of neurology that you need to know to succeed on these exams.

The book is organized into five sections for easy access and concludes with a practice test. The first section covers basic neurosciences, including neurochemistry, clinical neuroanatomy, andgenetics. The next section discusses clinical neurology, with chapters devoted to the major diseases and disorders including stroke, head trauma, dementia,epilepsy, and movement disorders, among others. In the third section, NCS, EMG, EEG, evoked potentials, and sleep neurology are covered, with images to enhance understanding of fundamental neurophysiologic techniques. After a dedicated chapter on pediatric neurology, the final section contains nine chapters on subspecialties, including neurorehabilitation, adult and child psychiatry, neurourology, neuro-oncology, and more.

Each chapter has been fully reviewed, revised, and updated to reflect current knowledge and practice and presents the information in an outline format, ideal for test preparation. Crucial topics and high-yield data are highlighted in bold or italic for maximal retention. With several new features, such assuggested readings and a cheat sheet at the end of each chapter, this third edition of Ultimate Review for the Neurology Boards is essential reading for anyone taking the neurology boards or MOC exam.

The Revised Third Edition Features:

Surface Imaging for Biomedical Applications

 Radiology  Comments Off on Surface Imaging for Biomedical Applications
Dec 142018
 

Based on hospital clinical trials examining the use of signal and image processing techniques, Surface Imaging for Biomedical Applications bridges the gap between engineers and clinicians. This text offers a thorough analysis of biomedical surface imaging to medical practitioners as it relates to the diagnosis, detection, and monitoring of skin conditions and disease.

Written from an engineer’s perspective, the book discusses image acquisition methods, image processing, and pattern recognition techniques. It focuses on a variety of techniques used in recent years for image processing and pattern recognition (principal component analysis, independent component analysis, singular value decomposition, texture modeling, inverse model analysis, polynomial surface fitting, and classification techniques), and considers interventional and non-invasive procedures used to diagnose skin-related disease.

It examines the biological causation of four skin disorders (psoriasis, vitiligo, ulcer, and acne), provides basic terminologies in surface imaging, and details the outcome of various clinical observations and other research. It also details numerous measurement parameters related to surface imaging (body surface, skin color, tissue characteristic, thickness, roughness, volume of skin, and retinal changes).

• Discusses the development of a psoriasis severity measurement tool
• Provides material on assessing segmented repigmentation areas in vitiligo patients via VT-Scan
• Introduces a volume ulcer assessment using non-invasive 3D imaging
• Presents an automated system for acne grading that is based on capturing the images of various body parts using the DSLR camera
• Includes the MATLAB® codes for various pattern recognition techniques applied during the assessment/measurement at the end of each chapter
This interdisciplinary reference highlights the importance of disease diagnosis and monitoring, and is suitable for medical practitioners, biomedical engineers, and core image processing researchers.
