Extraordinary Science and Psychiatry: Responses to the Crisis in Mental Health Research

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Extraordinary Science and Psychiatry: Responses to the Crisis in Mental Health Research
Oct 212018
 

Leading scholars offer perspectives from the philosophy of science on the crisis in psychiatric research that exploded after the publication of DSM-5.
Psychiatry and mental health research is in crisis, with tensions between psychiatry’s clinical and research aims and controversies over diagnosis, treatment, and scientific constructs for studying mental disorders. At the center of these controversies is the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), which—especially after the publication of DSM-5—many have found seriously flawed as a guide for research. This book addresses the crisis and the associated “extraordinary science” (Thomas Kuhn’s term for scientific research during a state of crisis) from the perspective of philosophy of science. The goal is to help reconcile the competing claims of science and phenomenology within psychiatry and to offer new insights for the philosophy of science.
The contributors discuss the epistemological origins of the current crisis, the nature of evidence in psychiatric research, and the National Institute for Mental Health’s Research Domain Criteria project. They consider particular research practices in psychiatry—computational, personalized, mechanistic, and user-led—and the specific categories of schizophrenia, depressive disorder, and bipolar disorder. Finally, they examine the DSM’s dubious practice of pathologizing normality.

Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nursing

 Nursing, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nursing
Oct 042018
 


Named a 2013 Doody’s Core Title!
There are few new books to direct PMH-APRN treatment options…Now, this book provides the path to integration of treatment options for the holistic care of psychiatric client by PMH-APRNs.”–Doody’s Medical Reviews
“This text is a wonderful compilation of information that is needed within current advanced practice psychiatric mental health nursing. The chapters are informative, have excellent references and provide up to the minute information that is grounded in evidence-based practices.”–Barbara Jones Warren, PhD, RN, CNS-BC, PMH, FAAN
Professor, Clinical Nursing
Director, Psychiatric Nursing Specialty
National Institutes of Health/American Nurses Association Ethnic/Racial Minority Fellow
The Ohio State College of Nursing
This groundbreaking core text fills a void in nursing literature by integrating psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) approaches into advanced practice nursing. It is organized around psychiatric “syndromes” rather than DSM diagnoses, so it will remain current even after the publication of the DSM-5. The book provides clear and relevant treatment options in the form of decision trees with additional explanatory narratives. These decision trees enable practitioners to distinguish “normal” patients from those who require more customized therapeutic interventions. This holistic text integrates neurobiology, theory, and research evidence related to psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, and complementary and alternative medicine interventions. While providing comprehensive information on theory and practice, it simplifies complex aspects of treatment with clarity and provides the depth of content appropriate to support sound clinical reasoning required in advanced practice.
The book responds to the current backlash against overmedication in psychiatry. It also fulfills the upcoming requirements by APNA and ISPN that advanced practice psychiatric nurses must have skills in psychotherapy. Additionally, the text focuses on treatment issues across the life span and highlights pertinent clinical differences from the adult population through pediatric pointers and aging alerts. Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nursing reflects the extensive practice and educational experience of editors and contributors from the United States, Canada, and Scotland, all of whom are expert APNs.

Key Features: 

  • Organized around psychiatric “syndromes,” rather than DSM diagnoses, so it will remain relevant after the DSM-5 is published
  • Integrates neurobiology, theory, and research evidence related to psychotherapy. psychopharmacology, and CAM therapies
  • Provides the much-needed content on psychotherapy newly required for all psychiatric advanced practice nurses (APNA & ISPN White Papers)
  • Supports clinical decision skills through thoughtfully designed, easy-to-follow decision trees

ICONS highlight life span clinical management differences through Pediatric Pointers and Aging Alerts

Psychotherapy for the Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nurse, Second Edition: A How-To Guide for Evidence-Based Practice

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Psychotherapy for the Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nurse, Second Edition: A How-To Guide for Evidence-Based Practice
Oct 032018
 

Dr. Wheeler has skillfully crafted a text that covers basic psychiatric principles and skills from developing a therapeutic relationship and assessing and diagnosing the client to providing evidence-based psychotherapy for a variety of patient populations… This text is an excellent primer for teaching therapy skills and, although targeting graduate psychiatric nursing students, would prove equally valuable for students of any mental health discipline. It is also a resource for experienced clinicians wanting to expand their understanding of trauma and how adaptive information processing might be used as an organizing framework for all psychotherapy.
–Linda Mabey, Journal of EMDR Practice and Research
DESCRIPTION
This is a how-to compendium of evidence-based approaches to practicing psychotherapy for both the experienced and neophyte advanced practice psychiatric nurse. This book integrates neuroscience with relationship science and unites disparate psychotherapeutic approaches into a model that is concise and straightforward, yet sufficiently comprehensive to provide a framework for practice. The most useful therapeutic models are highlighted with principles, and techniques of treatment for nurse psychotherapists and those with prescriptive authority. This second edition expands the award-winning first edition, providing guidelines, forms, and case studies to assist APPNs in deciding which treatment to use based on psychotherapy outcome studies and practice guidelines. New Chapters in the Second Edition:

  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy
  • Group Therapy
  • Family Therapy
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Therapeutic Approaches for Addictions

4 Star Doody Review
Lays out a holistic paradigm for advanced psychiatric nursing (APN) practice by drawing upon a neuroscience of information processing, human development, attachment theory, and trauma. . . (and) explains the essentials of psychotherapy by melding principles underlying the therapeutic alliance, adaptive information processing (AIP), change, and a hierarchically arranged treatment format that fosters healing through the resolution of dysfunctional memory this important text holds true to the historical basis for psychiatric nursing being organized around phases and principles of the nurse-patient relationship.
Margaret England, PhD, RN, CNS, Perspectives in Psychiatric Care 
Wheeler offers the field a scholarly training manual. . . grounded in Shapiro’s (2001) adaptive information processing paradigm . . .(where) the brain is viewed as an information processing system with innate self-healing mechanisms that regulate its internal environment to survive and to maintain a stable, constant condition through dynamic regulation.
