Psychological Testing That Matters: Creating a Road Map for Effective Treatment


Features: Psychological Testing That Matters Creating a Road Map for Effective Treatment
By (author): Anthony D. Bram, Mary Jo Peebles

Psychological testing is most valuable when it makes a meaningful difference in a person s treatment. This groundbreaking book offers a person- and treatment-centered approach to psychological testing, as opposed to the more common test-centered approach. The result is a clinically nuanced and robust approach to inference making and data synthesis.

The book s four sections parallel the flow of an examiner moving from overview to detail and back to synthesis: Part I describes treatment-centered diagnosis; Part II focuses on assessment of the patient s psychological capacities; Part III shows how to integrate the test information into a working understanding of the patient s problems; and Part IV explains how to consolidate test findings and communicate them clearly, using a detailed case example and sample report. Readers will find much to benefit from in this evidence-based book linking test results to meaningful individualized treatment.

Nursing Theories and Models (Routledge Essentials for Nurses)


Features: Nursing theories and models
By (author): Hugh McKenna

Nursing theory is a major part of all nursing courses and nurses are encouraged to use theories in practice, but it is not always easy for the student to make a real connection between the two. Drawing on many years’ experience of teaching and research, Hugh McKenna addresses the theory needs of both students and qualified staff. He demystifies the confusing terminology associated with nursing theory and shows how all nurses can build theory from practice through reflection and analysis. This text offers step-by-step guidelines on:

* how to analyse concepts
* how to generate and select theory
* how to apply and test theory in practice.

Written in a friendly, easy to read style, Nursing Theories and Models puts forward realistic strategies for bridging the theory-practice gap.

Trauma and Memory: Brain and Body in a Search for the Living Past: A Practical Guide for Understanding and Working with Traumatic Memory


Features: Trauma and Memory Brain and Body in a Search for the Living Past A Practical Guide for Understanding and Working with Traumatic Memory
By (author): Peter A. Levine Ph.D.

In Trauma and Memory, bestselling author Dr. Peter Levine (creator of the Somatic Experiencing approach) tackles one of the most difficult and controversial questions of PTSD/trauma therapy: Can we trust our memories? While some argue that traumatic memories are unreliable and not useful, others insist that we absolutely must rely on memory to make sense of past experience. Building on his 45 years of successful treatment of trauma and utilizing case studies from his own practice, Dr. Levine suggests that there are elements of truth in both camps. While acknowledging that memory can be trusted, he argues that the only truly useful memories are those that might initially seem to be the least reliable: memories stored in the body and not necessarily accessible by our conscious mind.

While much work has been done in the field of trauma studies to address “explicit” traumatic memories in the brain (such as intrusive thoughts or flashbacks), much less attention has been paid to how the body itself stores “implicit” memory, and how much of what we think of as “memory” actually comes to us through our (often unconsciously accessed) felt sense. By learning how to better understand this complex interplay of past and present, brain and body, we can adjust our relationship to past trauma and move into a more balanced, relaxed state of being. Written for trauma sufferers as well as mental health care practitioners, Trauma and Memory is a groundbreaking look at how memory is constructed and how influential memories are on our present state of being.

Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry


By (author): Philip Cowen, Paul Harrison, Tom Burns

Widely recognised as the standard text for trainee psychiatrists, the ‘Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry’ stands head and shoulders above the competition. Written by three of the most experienced clinicians and researchers in European psychiatry and neuroscience, the text has been honed over five editions and displays a fluency, authority and insight which is not only rarely found but makes the process of assimilating information as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

The book provides an introduction to all the clinical topics required by the trainee psychiatrist, including all the sub-specialties and major psychiatric conditions. Throughout, the authors emphasize the basic clinical skills required for the full assessment and understanding of the patient. Discussion of treatment includes not only scientific evidence, but also practical problems in the management of individual patients. The text emphasizes an evidence-based approach to practice and gives full attention to ethical and legal issues. Introductory chapters focus on recognition of signs and symptoms, classification and diagnosis, psychiatric assessment, and aetiology. Further chapters cover both pharmacological and psychological treatments in detail. The book gives equal prominence given to ICD and DSM classification – often with direct comparisons – giving the book a universal appeal.

The sixth edition has been revised throughout, but in particular with respect to the fast moving fields of neuroscience and genetics. In addition, the book now includes greater coverage of the field of social psychiatry – looking at how more community based services are being developed, and the effects these are having on the field of psychiatry. The ‘Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry’ remains the most up-to-date secondary level textbook of psychiatry available, with the new edition boasting a new modern design and greater use of summary boxes, tables, and lists than ever before. The extensive bibliography has been brought up-to-date and there are targeted reading lists for each chapter. The ‘Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry’ fulfils all the study and revision needs of psychiatric trainees, but will also prove useful to medical students, GPs, qualified psychiatrists, and those in related fields who need to be kept informed with current psychiatric practice.

By (author): Sohan Singh Hayreh

This book provides a comprehensive account of the pathogenesis, clinical features, and management of ocular vascular occlusive disorders, with the focus very much on the scientific evidence. This offers a sound basis for addressing the many controversies that surround these disorders, which collectively constitute the most common cause of visual impairment or blindness.

The second, clinical, section covers the presentation, clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment of the full range of vascular occlusive disorders of the retina, the choroid, the anterior segment of the eye, ophthalmic manifestations of carotid artery disease and the optic nerve. Ocular Vascular Occlusive Disorders, written by a distinguished world leader in the field, will be invaluable for general ophthalmologists, and particularly for retina specialists, neuro-ophthalmologists, and researchers.
