Clinical Trials in Psychiatry

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Clinical Trials in Psychiatry
Jul 032019
 

Mental health problems account for a quarter of all physician consultations, and place an enormous financial burden on society. For this reason, the search for effective treatments in psychiatry continues apace. But as they are developed, it is essential that we have effective and rigorous methods of assessing the benefits and safety of new treatments. The randomised controlled trial (RCT) is accepted as being the best method for doing this. In order to understand what does and does not work, mental health professionals need to understand how treatments have been assessed and evaluated. Clinical Trials in Psychiatry is the first book to explain RCTs for mental health professionals. It starts by discussing why we need trials and why they are the best way of deciding if a treatment works. It then describes the different types of trials, how to analyze the results, and how to conduct a trial. For anyone working in the mental health field, this book will be an essential source of reference, allowing them to make informed decisions about treatment.

What Is Mental Illness?

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on What Is Mental Illness?
Jun 292019
 

According to a major health survey, nearly half of all Americans have been mentally ill at some point in their lives—more than a quarter in the last year. Can this be true? What exactly does it mean, anyway? What’s a disorder, and what’s just a struggle with real life? This lucid and incisive book cuts through both professional jargon and polemical hot air, to describe the intense political and intellectual struggles over what counts as a “real” disorder, and what goes into the “DSM,” the psychiatric bible. Is schizophrenia a disorder? Absolutely. Is homosexuality? It was—till gay rights activists drove it out of the DSM a generation ago. What about new and controversial diagnoses? Is “social anxiety disorder” a way of saying that it’s sick to be shy, or “female sexual arousal disorder” that it’s sick to be tired? An advisor to the DSM, but also a fierce critic of exaggerated overuse, McNally defends the careful approach of describing disorders by patterns of symptoms that can be seen, and illustrates how often the system medicalizes everyday emotional life. Neuroscience, genetics, and evolutionary psychology may illuminate the biological bases of mental illness, but at this point, McNally argues, no science can draw a bright line between disorder and distress. In a pragmatic and humane conclusion, he offers questions for patients and professionals alike to help understand, and cope with, the sorrows and psychopathologies of everyday life. (20101001)

The Making of Psychotherapists: An Anthropological Analysis

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on The Making of Psychotherapists: An Anthropological Analysis
Jun 202019
 

Here, for the first time, is a book that submits the psychoanalytic community and training institute to deep anthropological enquiry. It expertly uncovers the manifold and often hidden institutional devices used to transform trainees into professionals. By analysing the origins of the splits and ructions within the profession, and by attending closely to what trainees feel, do and think as they struggle towards professional status, Davies exposes the often subtle but deeply penetrating effects psychoanalytic training has upon all who pass through it, and the way these effects come to structure and direct the community itself. The data illuminating this ethnography is culled from case-studies of clinical work, interviews with teachers, senior practitioners and trainees, as well as from his participant observation. This book is written to be accessible to all those who have an interest in the therapeutic profession – from the psychotherapist, social anthropologist, to the general reader alike.

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on The Strengths Model: A Recovery-Oriented Approach to Mental Health Services, 3 edition
Jun 172019
 

Presenting a compelling alternative to the traditional medical approach, The Strengths Model demonstrates an evidence-based approach to helping people with a psychiatric disability identify and achieve meaningful and important life goals. Since the first edition of this classic textbook appeared, the strengths model has matured into a robust vision of mental health services. Both a philosophy of practice and a specific set of tools and methods, the strengths model is designed to facilitate a recovery-oriented partnership between client and practitioner. This completely revised edition charts the evolution of the strengths model, reviews the empirical support behind it, and illustrates the techniques and values that guide its application.

Features new to this edition:
– An extensive update of the strengths literature, focusing on recovery as the dominant paradigm in mental health services
– Richly drawn case vignettes demonstrating the application of methods
– Integration of empirical research and consumers’ own experiences
– Completely updated strengths assessment and fidelity scales
– In-depth discussions and examples guide practitioners from theory to applied practice
– Descriptions of how to teach and successfully supervise large-scale implementations of strengths model work

For social workers and other mental health specialists working with clients to move beyond the disabling effects of mental illness to a life filled with meaning, purpose, and identity, this remains the crucial text.
