Collaborative Problem Solving: An Evidence-Based Approach to Implementation and Practice

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Collaborative Problem Solving: An Evidence-Based Approach to Implementation and Practice
Sep 112019
 


The Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach is a revolutionary, evidence-based practice for understanding and helping behaviorally challenging children and adolescents. The technique itself is a non-punitive, non-adversarial, trauma-informed model of care designed by the Think:Kids initiative within Massachusetts General Hospital, the top psychiatric hospital in the United States.
The philosophy acknowledges that challenging behaviors in children―including tantrums, pouting, violent outburst, lack of engagement and others―is not “bratty,” but the child is lacking the skills appropriately respond to an expectation of an adult. Since the child’s brain has not developed the communication functions that adults have, this “bad behavior” is really a way for them to communicate that they are struggling. Punishing them is the worst course of action because in reality, such an action causes them to withdraw and develop negative emotions. These negative effects are often carried throughout an individual’s life if not appropriately managed. The CPS approach, therefore, meets behaviorally challenged children at their level and helps them build the skills to respond appropriately. This is the opposite of the traditional, punitive approach, which is harmful to a child who really needs compassion.
Since 2001 when its implementation began across the United States, this evidence-based approach has met with great success; apart from individual patients and families, schools, law enforcement agencies, social workers, and a wide range of individuals and intuitions have adopted this method with great success and could serve as an excellent secondary market for a resource like this. New York State’s and California’s Department of Education have both report positive results, for example. The top researchers in this field have given lectures and articles that have had an overwhelming response, with many mental health and para-professionals reaching out to Think:kids in search of more guidance on the subject; despite this, no such resource exists.
This book will be the first to systematically describe the key components necessary to ensure successful implementation of Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) across mental health settings, including private practice, medical schools, large hospitals and research settings, therapeutic school settings, social work settings, and many others. A secondary audience includes non-mental health professionals who may also manage behaviors, including educators, law enforcement, administrators, and others. The reader will gain a concrete framework that will support their task of implementing this approach within their program, organization, and/or system of care.

Re-Visioning Psychiatry: Cultural Phenomenology, Critical Neuroscience, and Global Mental Health

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Re-Visioning Psychiatry: Cultural Phenomenology, Critical Neuroscience, and Global Mental Health
Sep 082019
 

Revisioning Psychiatry explores new theories and models from cultural psychiatry and psychology, philosophy, neuroscience, and anthropology that clarify how mental health problems emerge in specific contexts and points toward future integration of these perspectives. Taken together, the contributions point to the need for fundamental shifts in psychiatric theory and practice: • Restoring phenomenology to its rightful place in research and practice; • Advancing the social and cultural neuroscience of brain-person-environment systems over time and across social contexts; • Understanding how self-awareness, interpersonal interactions, and larger social processes give rise to vicious circles that constitute mental health problems; • Locating efforts to help and heal within the local and global social, economic, and political contexts that influence how we frame problems and imagine solutions. In advancing ecosystemic models of mental disorders, contributors challenge reductionistic models and culture-bound perspectives and highlight possibilities for a more transdisciplinary, integrated approach to research, mental health policy, and clinical practice.

Psychobiology of Behaviour

 Behavioral Sciences, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Psychobiology of Behaviour
Aug 202019
 

The book provides a comprehensive reference on the neurobiological understanding of behaviour, how behaviour is regulated by the brain, and how such behaviours in turn influence the brain.
The work offers an introduction to neural systems and genetics/epigenetics, followed by detailed study of a wide range of behaviours – temperament and personality, instincts and drives, memory and cognitive function, sex and sexual differentiation, ethology and evolutionary biology, aging, drug abuse and other problematic behaviors, psychophysiology and ultimately the links to biological psychiatry and psychopharmacology. Research findings on the neural basis of social behaviour are integrated across different levels of analysis, from molecular neurobiology and neural systems/behavioural neuroscience to fMRI imaging data on human social behaviour. The content covers research on both normal and abnormal behaviours, as well as developmental aspects.
The target audience includes psychiatrists, neurologists, nurses, psychologists and all researchers and advanced students in behavioural, social and developmental neuroscience, as well as clinical neuroscientists.
