Conducting Miranda Evaluations: Applications of Psychological Expertise and Science within the Forensic Context

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Conducting Miranda Evaluations: Applications of Psychological Expertise and Science within the Forensic Context
May 182019
 

This innovative book provides both the conceptual framework and clinical methods needed to appropriately handle problems that arise in the administration of Miranda warnings and waivers. Largely overlooked for decades, Miranda rights have been compromised in multiple ways, and in millions of cases. For example, each year, thousands of adult arrestees with intellectual disabilities or severe mental disorders waive their rights with markedly impaired Miranda understanding and reasoning. This also applies to thousands of developmentally immature juvenile detainees, who are often provided with complex warnings far beyond their comprehension levels. Addressing this continued crisis, Conducting Miranda Evaluations presents balanced and empirically based guidelines for conducting forensic assessments and communicating their empirical conclusions to the legal community. This book provides psychologists, and related professionals with the essential forensic and legal knowledge for carrying out evaluations of both Miranda comprehension and waiver-relevant reasoning.

Psychology’s Misuse of Statistics and Persistent Dismissal of its Critics

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Psychology’s Misuse of Statistics and Persistent Dismissal of its Critics
May 142019
 

This book is a strenuous critique of the misinterpretation of statistical knowledge of populations in mainstream psychology, exploring the implications of assuming that those statistics constitute scientific knowledge of individuals. It investigates the essential nature and historical roots of this interpretive practice, and documents the lack of change in mainstream thinking despite previous critiques of the practice. The author contends that prevailing interpretive traditions result in bad science, in that invalid claims are made to knowledge of individuals. He also discusses the socio-ethical problems resulting from this misinterpretation of statistics, where psychological practitioners unjustifiably endorse interventions in the lives of individuals. Lamiell urges psychologists to abandon the aggregate statistical methods which he argues have transformed the field into ‘psycho-demography,’ and to embrace instead alternative research methods that are logically suited to gaining scientific knowledge about the psychological functioning of individuals. This book concludes by highlighting some of the currently available methodological alternatives, as well as discussing some enduring conceptual impediments to the serious consideration of those alternatives.

Reviews on Biomarker Studies in Psychiatric and Neurodegenerative Disorders

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Reviews on Biomarker Studies in Psychiatric and Neurodegenerative Disorders
May 092019
 

This book includes a series of reviews on general aspects of biomarker use in the study of psychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases and the development of medications involved in their treatment. It describes the pros and cons of the various approaches and covers the successes and failures in this research field. It is only by a thorough understanding of the shortcomings that progress can be made. The overall goal is to facilitate the understanding and treatment of these disorders, by providing a viable mechanism of catching up with other areas of modern medicine, such as diabetes and heart disease. Finally, it is anticipated that the development and application of valid biomarker tests and the leveraging of novel drug targets will help the fields of psychiatry on neurodegenerative disorders move into the area of personalized medicine where the right patients can receive the right medication at the right time for the best possible outcome.

The Science and Pseudoscience of Children’s Mental Health: Cutting Edge Research and Treatment

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on The Science and Pseudoscience of Children’s Mental Health: Cutting Edge Research and Treatment
May 062019
 

Intended for mental health practitioners, concerned parents, and child advocates alike, this book presents a powerful new paradigm for understanding the causes of children’s psychological disturbances-and as a result, the proper treatment of these symptoms. Based in cutting-edge research on the developing brain and epigenetics, this important volume serves to inform readers about the latest scientific conclusions and clinical practices that need to supplant pervasive and often dangerous drug prescriptions to millions of children. Sharna Olfman, PhD, and contributors including leading researchers, clinicians, and childhood advocates present their research findings and explain the implications for treatment of a range of symptoms, including autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), concussion syndromes, and mood disorders. The book definitively lays to rest the “chemical imbalance theory” of mental illness, a theory that has been roundly discredited by the scientific community but kept alive by the pharmaceutical industry. Chapters focus on the real science of epigenetics and the sensitivity of the developing brain to environmental influences such as trauma and chemical toxins-legitimate research findings that are largely ignored by mental health practitioners and rarely influence practice.

Clinical child neuropsychiatry

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Clinical child neuropsychiatry
May 012019
 


Neuropsychiatry is a rapidly expanding field, linking the traditional areas of neurology and psychiatry, which has benefited greatly from recognition of the role of genetic and environmental determinants of psychiatric disorder particularly in childhood and adolescence. Based on twenty years of clinical experience and eighteen years of research, Professor Gillberg has utilised his unique and detailed interdisciplinary knowledge of neurobiology, pharmacology, epidemiology and neuropsychology to compile this comprehensive reference to clinical assessment and treatment of the many neuropsychiatric disorders of childhood which, at a conservative estimate, affect five in every hundred children. This is valuable reference resource that is sure to be welcomed by a wide range of professionals and researchers including child neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, speech therapists and special education teachers
