Treating Traumatized Children: A Casebook of Evidence-Based Therapies


Featuring extensive case studies, this volume provides a unique window into implementation of evidence-based treatments in real-world community settings. Experienced therapists illustrate the use of three effective therapies for traumatized children and their caregivers: trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), child-parent psychotherapy (CPP), and parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT). Covering the entire process of assessment and intervention, the cases highlight ways to maintain treatment fidelity while addressing complex clinical challenges with diverse clients. Experts in the respective therapy models offer instructive commentaries at the end of each case. The book also provides a concise introduction to each model, including its theoretical underpinnings, empirical support, and applications.

Podrid’s Real-World ECGs: Volume 5A, Narrow and Wide Complex Tachyarrhythmias and Aberration [Core Cases]


By (author): Philip Podrid, Rajeev Malhotra, Rahul Kakkar, Peter A. Noseworthy

Podrid’s Real-World ECGs combines traditional case-based workbooks with a versatile Web-based program to offer students, health care professionals, and physicians an indispensable resource for developing and honing the technical skills and systematic approach needed to interpret ECGs with confidence. ECGs from real patient cases offer a complete and in-depth learning experience by focusing on fundamental electrophysiologic properties and clinical concepts as well as detailed discussion of important diagnostic findings and relevant management decisions. Six comprehensive volumes encompass more than 600 individual case studies plus an online repository of hundreds more interactive case studies that include feedback and discussion about the important waveforms and clinical decision-making involved. From an introductory volume that outlines the approaches and tools utilized in the analysis of all ECGs to subsequent volumes covering particular disease entities for which the ECG is useful, readers will take away the in-depth knowledge needed to successfully interpret the spectrum of routine to challenging ECGs they will encounter in their own clinical practice.

Volume 5, Narrow and Wide Complex Tachyarrhythmias and Aberration–Part A: Core Cases presents 61 case studies to allow students to sharpen their skills in reading ECGs and diagnosing both narrow complex tachyarrhythmias (originating in the sinus node, atrium, or AV node) and wide complex tachyarrhythmias (ventricular, supraventricular with aberration, and pacemaker associated). There are also ECGs that present etiologies and mechanism for aberration. Each case offers one or more ECGs that illustrate various causes of aberration, highlighting features that help to establish its etiology.

60 additional cases for further study are available in a separate digital edition, Volume 5B: Practice Cases.

Pesticide Toxicity to Non-target Organisms: Exposure, Toxicity and Risk Assessment Methodologies


By (author): Johnson Stanley, Gnanadhas Preetha

The pesticide should cause effect on the target pests and be selective enough to spare the non-target beneficial. The book deals with the pesticide toxicity to predators, parasitoids and microbes which are used for pest management in the agroecosystem. The other beneficials exposed to pesticides are pollinators, earthworms, silkworm and fishes. The book contains information on the modes of pesticide exposure and toxicity to the organisms, sub-lethal effects of insecticides and method of toxicity assessment, risk assessment of pesticidal application in the field. The purpose of the work is to compile and present the different procedures to assess pesticide poising in organisms related to the agroecosystem along with discussions on risk assessment procedures with clear comparison of toxicity of pesticides to target pests and non target beneficial organisms.

Pediatric Neurotoxicology: Academic and Psychosocial Outcomes (Specialty Topics in Pediatric Neuropsychology)


This book focuses on children and the impact of neurotoxins on the developing brain to guide the practice of psychologists working with children in clinical and school settings. Each chapter covers a distinct neurotoxin or group of neurotoxins, with particular emphasis on the impact of the neurotoxin exposure on the developing brain and long-term cognitive and psychosocial outcomes. This is more complex than studying neurotoxins with adults because of the rapid development occurring in the child’s brain. Further, children are more susceptible than adults to the effects of neurotoxins due to their developmental status. Many of the effects discussed in this volume occur in utero, thus setting the stage for an altered developmental trajectory.

Non-Neuronal Mechanisms of Brain Damage and Repair After Stroke (Springer Series in Translational Stroke Research)


This book provides a comprehensive overview of the latest research in the role of non-neuronal cells – astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, endothelial cells, pericytes, microglia, and other immune cells in ischemic brain injury and long-term recovery. In these cases, neurodegeneration and brain repair are controlled in a sophisticated system, incorporating interactions between different cell types and cellular systems. Also explored are the therapeutic strategies that target non-neuronal responses after stroke and their translational potentials.

The Objective Monitoring of Physical Activity: Contributions of Accelerometry to Epidemiology, Exercise Science and Rehabilitation (Springer Series on Epidemiology and Public Health)


This book examines the new knowledge that has been gained from the objective monitoring of habitual physical activity by means of pedometers and accelerometers. It reviews current advances in the technology of activity monitoring and details advantages of objective monitors relative to physical activity questionnaires. It points to continuing gaps in knowledge, and explores the potential for further advances in the design of objective monitoring devices.

Epidemiologists have studied relationships between questionnaire assessments of habitual physical activity and various medical conditions for some seventy years. In general, they have observed positive associations between regular exercise and good health, but because of inherent limitations in the reliability and accuracy of physical activity questionnaires, optimal exercise recommendations for the prevention and treatment of disease have remained unclear. 

Inexpensive pedometers and accelerometers now offer the epidemiologist the potential to collect relatively precisely graded and objective information on the volume, intensity and patterns of effort that people are undertaking, to relate this data to past and future health experience, and to establish dose/response relationships between physical activity and the various components of health. Such information is important both in assessing the causal nature of the observed associations and in establishing evidence-based recommendations concerning the minimal levels of daily physical activity needed to maintain good health.
