Feb 112018
 

 

Patients in psychiatric care can behave in ways that can be alarming for staff, and difficult to respond to. The authors of this practical and imaginative book explain why patients may behave in these ways, and offer a toolkit of ways to respond effectively and kindly. With many everyday examples of how to keep the space positive and safe, and patients calm, this book could transform your working life.

“An overwhelming number of persons suffer from mental health problems across their life span. In this important book, the authors describe the critical issues in the psychiatric care of individuals with autism. Written by a father (who is an experienced psychologist), and his daughter (who has suffered from psychiatric disorders), it gives a detailed account of the difficulties faced by persons with autism and related disorders, especially as they transition into adulthood, and sheds light on the challenges faced both by patients and staff. I enjoyed reading the book and recommend it both to parents and caregivers of persons with autism and other developmental disabilities.” – Mohammad Ghaziuddin, MD Professor of Psychiatry, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA.

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Study Guide to Preventive Medical Care in Psychiatry: A Case Approach
Feb 112018
 

 

Study Guide to Preventive Medical Care in Psychiatry: A Case Approach is an indispensable companion to Preventive Medical Care in Psychiatry: A Practical Guide for Clinicians. Like the primary text, the study guide was written by experts in the field – many with dual training in psychiatry and medicine – and it reflects the text’s focus on clinical care for psychiatrists and other mental health care providers who work in outpatient mental health and integrated clinics. It is critical that mental health providers and trainees learn how to prevent and detect common medical conditions in their patients, who typically have higher rates of adverse health risk behaviors and may lack a primary care physician. Through the deft use of clinical cases, the study guide helps providers and trainees acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to view the patient holistically and improve outcomes.

The study guide’s authors employ effective organizational strategies and pedagogic features to achieve these objectives: • The study guide’s structure mirrors that of the primary text, with eight, multi-chapter sections authored by a team of leading experts in the respective areas. Chapter content is embodied in a series of clinical cases, each of which is followed by several multiple-choice questions, allowing readers to test their knowledge of the material. • In the answer guide, the correct answer to each question is presented, along with an explanation and the corresponding page numbers from the primary text where more complete coverage can be found. This cross-referencing allows readers to contextualize the question and answer and provides them with the opportunity to consolidate their learning of important information.• The original cases are well written and compelling, offering readers a level of detail and complexity that is both realistic and illustrative of key concepts in prevention, assessment, and treatment.• In all, the study guide offers 93 cases and 290 multiple-choice questions covering every chapter in the text. In addition, more than 50 tables and figures are included to summarize vital information and illustrate important ideas.

Mental health clinicians in practice or training will find Study Guide to Preventive Medical Care in Psychiatry: A Case Approach an essential, evidence-based tool for learning and translating a holistic, integrated model of care into the clinical arena.’

Of Two Minds: An Anthropologist Looks at American Psychiatry

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Of Two Minds: An Anthropologist Looks at American Psychiatry
Feb 082018
 

In this groundbreaking book, Tanya Luhrmann – among the most admired of young American anthropologists – brings her acute intelligence and her sophisticated powers of observation to bear on the world of psychiatry. On the basis of extensive interviews with patients and doctors, as well as day-to-day investigative fieldwork in residency programs, private psychiatric hospitals, and state hospitals, Luhrmann shows us how psychiatrists are trained, how they develop their particular way of seeing and listening to their patients, what makes a psychiatrist successful, and how the enormous ambiguities in the field affect its practitioners and patients.

How do psychiatrists learn to do what they do? What is it like for psychiatrists to deal with people who are in emotional extremity? How does the choice between drug therapy and talk therapy, each of which requires very different skills, affect the way psychiatrists understand their patients? Boldly and with sharp insight, Luhrmann takes the reader into the world of young doctors in training.

At a time when mood-altering drugs have revolutionized the treatment of the mentally ill and HMOs are forcing caregivers to take the pharmacological route, Luhrmann places us at the heart of the struggle – do we treat people’s brains or their minds? – and allows us to see exactly what is at stake.

Supervision Essentials for Integrative Psychotherapy

 Pathology, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Supervision Essentials for Integrative Psychotherapy
Feb 082018
 

 

This book presents integrative supervision applicable to integrative and single-system psychotherapy alike. Distinctive features include its synthesis of supervisory methods aligned with multiple theoretical traditions, a research-informed fit of supervision to the individuality of the supervisee, its insistence on frequent feedback from both clients and trainees, and a modeling of the philosophical pluralism and pragmatic flexibility of integration itself. In reviewing videotaped therapy sessions, integrative supervisors offer key insights into common problems, demonstrate how to adjust treatment to clients’ transdiagnostic needs, and guide trainees to clinical competence. Includes transcripts from actual supervision sessions and commentaries from the authors’ companion DVD, Integrative Psychotherapy Supervision.
