Since the attacks of September 11, 2001, disaster preparedness and response has developed into a discrete subspecialty in medicine, and the paramount health care initiative of the U.S. Government. The mental health component of disaster response is a serious subject of study, as trauma is associated with a substantial and long-lasting psychologic burden, both on an individual and community level. The psychopathologies associated with disaster are also quite broad, varying from several different types of post-traumatic stress and anxiety disorders to acute variations of grief-associated depression. This book is the definitive reference on mental health and disasters, focused on the assessment and treatment of the full spectrum of psychopathologies associated with many different types of individual disasters. The logistics for utilizing pre-existing community-based mental health services, as well as the development of new programs, are covered in depth. Case studies and perspectives for improving care, incorporating lessons from Hurricane Katrina and 9/11, are included in detail.

Neuroscience of Enduring Change: Implications for Psychotherapy

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Neuroscience of Enduring Change: Implications for Psychotherapy
Aug 032020
 

Neuroscience of Enduring Change is founded on the premise that all major psychotherapy modalities producing enduring change do so by virtue of corrective emotional experiences that alter problematic memories through the process of reconsolidation. This book is unique in linking basic science concepts to clinical research and clinical application. Experts in each area address each of the basic science and clinical topics. No other book addresses a general mechanism of change in psychotherapy in combination with the basic science underpinning it. This book is also unique in bringing the latest neuroimaging evidence and cutting-edge conceptual approaches to bear in understanding how psychological and behavioral treatment approaches bring about lasting change in the brain. Clinicians will benefit from the detailed discussion of basic mechanisms that underpin their clinical interventions and will be challenged to consider how their approach to therapy might be adjusted to optimize the opportunities for enduring change. Researchers will benefit from authoritative reviews of extant knowledge and a clear description of the research agenda going forward. The cross-fertilization between the research and clinical domains is evident throughout.

If Your Adolescent Has an Eating Disorder: An Essential Resource for Parents (Adolescent Mental Health Initiative), 2nd Edition

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on If Your Adolescent Has an Eating Disorder: An Essential Resource for Parents (Adolescent Mental Health Initiative), 2nd Edition
Jul 212020
 

If Your Adolescent Has an Eating Disorder is an authoritative guide to understanding and helping a teenager with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder, or other eating disorders. It is designed for parents of teens who have recently been diagnosed with an eating disorder, or who are at risk of developing one, and for other adults, such as teachers and guidance counselors, who are regularly in contact with at-risk adolescents. The book combines the latest science—including the newest treatments and most up-to-date research findings on eating disorders—with the practical wisdom of parents who have been in the trenches raising teens with eating disorders.

Written in a clear and approachable style, Drs. B. Timothy Walsh and Deborah R. Glasofer explain exactly what eating disorders are and describe their characteristics, as well as signs and symptoms. They outline the right way to go about getting help if you suspect your child may have a problem, about when and where to get treatment, and about how to navigate the healthcare system. There is also advice on how to handle everyday life–both at home and at school–once your child is diagnosed, and on how to communicate with your teen and her or his siblings about issues related to the eating disorder. Complete with red flags to look out for, warnings on the dangers of doing nothing, and a comprehensive list of additional resources, this book will help parents and other adults face and deal effectively with adolescent eating disorders before they become life-threatening.

Gabbard’s Treatments of Psychiatric Disorders

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Gabbard’s Treatments of Psychiatric Disorders
Jul 152020
 

The first major textbook to cover the treatments of DSM-5[registered] disorders in one volume, Gabbard’s Treatments of Psychiatric Disorders, Fifth Edition, provides up-to-date, comprehensive information for the busy clinician. Like its predecessors, this new edition was written by leading experts in psychiatry and constitutes an authoritative guide to standard of care for psychiatric disorders. However, the book has been thoroughly revised to conform to the DSM-5[registered], with sections and chapters corresponding to the manual’s categories, and the research summarized in this volume based on studies using DSM-IV[registered] criteria. This revision focuses exclusively on treatment, emphasizing those that have been deemed effective through the use of randomized, controlled trials, supplemented by the authors’ prodigious clinical wisdom. Since it was first published in 1989, the book has assumed the mantle of “classic,” a reputation founded on scientific rigor, cutting-edge coverage, and scrupulous editing. Evidence-based and DSM-5[registered] compatible, this new edition of Gabbard’s Treatments of Psychiatric Disorders represents a leap forward in accessibility and practicality.
