In the last three decades cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) has been applied to an ever-increasing number of problems (including anxiety disorders, substance abuse, and eating disorders) and populations (children, adolescents, and older people). NICE recommends CBT as the first line treatment in the NHS for tackling a wide range of psychological disorders.

 

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques is a crisp, concise elaboration of the 100 main features of this very popular and evidence-based approach within the field of psychotherapy. The 100 key points and techniques cover CBT theory as well as practice. Divided into helpful sections, topics covered include:

 

– Misconceptions about CBT

 

– Teaching the cognitive model

 

– Assessment and case conceptualization

 

– Homework (self-help assignments)

 

– Ways of detecting and answering NATs

 

– Behavioural experiments

 

– Intermediate and core beliefs

 

– Relapse management

 

– Third wave CBT

 

For the second edition of this book, Michael Neenan and Windy Dryden have revised and updated many of the points and several new ones have been added. This neat, usable book is an essential guide for psychotherapists and counsellors, both trainees and qualified, who need to ensure they are entirely familiar with the key features of CBT as part of a general introduction to the current major psychotherapies.

Review

This insightful book is suitable for both experienced and trainee therapists. I thoroughly recommend this second edition.’ – Professor Stephen Palmer PhD, Founder Director of the Centre for Stress Management, London, UK

Oxford Textbook of the Psychiatry of Intellectual Disability (Oxford Textbooks in Psychiatry)

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Oxford Textbook of the Psychiatry of Intellectual Disability (Oxford Textbooks in Psychiatry)
Oct 032021
 

Intellectual Disability (ID) describes a lifelong condition of heterogeneous aetiology, associated with the impairment of intellectual functioning (IQ < 70), significant impairment of adaptive skills, and onset before the age of 18 years. People with ID experience significant physical and mental health problems like associated sensory/motor impairments and epilepsy, some of which are contributed to by underlying primary causes. Psychiatric problems are also three times more common in people with ID in comparison to the general population.

The psychiatry of ID is a core part of training to be a psychiatrist yet there are limited resources on this topic aimed at both trainees and practising clinicians alike. Oxford Textbook of the Psychiatry of Intellectual Disability bridges this gap by providing up-to-date evidence-based content on the assessment, diagnosis, and management of psychiatry in people with ID.

Featuring 28 chapters written by international experts in the field, the Oxford Textbook of the Psychiatry of Intellectual Disability presents fresh global insight and coverage of the subject. Chapters cover key topics from the developmental aspects of ID, mental disorders in childhood, and behaviour phenotypes, through to physical health, dementia and other disorders associated with ageing.

Each chapter provides trustworthy evidence and a wealth of practical advice for clinical situations, including case studies in community and hospital settings, and multiple choice questions for self-evaluation and consolidation of knowledge.

The situation at the southern border of the United States has drawn worldwide attention to the dramatic and traumatic plight of those experiencing forced migration. Mental health clinicians who are on the ground there, and in programs and communities around the country, will find the guidance contained in this book, which is based on the experience of the Intercultural Psychiatric Program at the Oregon Health & Science University, to be a lifeline as they grapple with their patients prior trauma and ongoing psychological struggles. The volume begins with a valuable overview of the cultural and diagnostic issues typically encountered with refugees, then proceeds to diagnosis and treatment, as well as a detailed look at the needs of special populations, including children and adolescents, geriatric patients, and asylum seekers. Clinicians will also find useful and down-to-earth information on training residents to work in this clinical arena. Finally, the book considers the many ethical issues that may arise while doing this important work. Compassionate, clinically rich, and replete with actionable strategies practitioners will find useful, The Psychiatric Evaluation and Treatment of Refugees provides those on the frontlines of this humanitarian crisis with the information and support they sorely need.

Sociocultural Issues in Psychiatry: A Casebook and Curriculum 1st Edition

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Sociocultural Issues in Psychiatry: A Casebook and Curriculum 1st Edition
Sep 292021
 

As the demographics shift within the US population, the importance of culture on mental health diagnosis and treatment has become critical for education and clinical training in psychiatry. While it’s impossible to gain an in-depth understanding of every culture, clinicians need to have the skills and knowledge required to provide culturally respectful care for an increasingly diverse clinical population. By explaining fundamental concepts in cultural psychiatry using a case-based format, clinicians and educators in the mental health fields will be able to reduce cultural clashes and unproductive clinical encounters. Although similar books have focused on providing guidelines for working with discrete populations (e.g., African Americans, Asian Americans, LGBTQ), the purpose of Sociocultural Issues in Psychiatry is to enhance clinicians’ knowledge and skills by translating theory into practice across diverse patient populations and clinical contexts. Mental health clinicians at all levels, trainees, or practitioners, will benefit from the content and education provided in this book.

Enhancing Clinical Case Formulation: Theoretical and Practical Approaches for Mental Health Practitioners 1st Edition

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Enhancing Clinical Case Formulation: Theoretical and Practical Approaches for Mental Health Practitioners 1st Edition
Sep 292021
 

Clinical formulation lies at the heart of how mental health professionals understand psychological distress. It is the application of a framework that cohesively integrates scientific knowledge with the symptoms of distress. In essence, it is the creation of order to what is often experienced as disorder. The aim of this book is to bring awareness to the theoretical and practical opportunities for mental health professionals that exists by using atypical information when adapting typical formulation models.

Each chapter reflects some variation in how formulation is defined, conceptualised and practiced, by using information that regularly materializes from professional encounters but often is omitted from the formulation of a particular presenting problem. Chapters on diet and exercise, sleep, spirituality, sexuality and meaning-making highlight how approaches to formulation can be extended to provide additional opportunities for intervention for the client and practitioner.

A professional encounter orientated in the manner proposed will generate a type of formulation that will raise interesting and testable hypotheses that can assist in understanding ‘stuck’ points in therapy, difficulties within the therapeutic relationship, low motivation or inability to engage in particular approaches and will assist in devising person-specific mental health interventions. This book will appeal to clinical psychologists and psychotherapists in practice and training.

Child and Adolescent Psychopathology 3rd Edition

 Pathology, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Child and Adolescent Psychopathology 3rd Edition
Sep 252021
 

A unique, multi-discipline, developmental approach to childhood psychopathology

Child and Adolescent Psychopathology is the only comprehensive text in the field to address genetic, neurobiological, and environmental factors within a developmental context. Based on cutting-edge research and aligned with the DSM-5, this book emphasizes how, when, and why disorders emerge among young people, and the ways in which symptom profiles change at different stages of development. This new third edition has been updated to include new chapters on OCD and trauma disorders consistent with DSM-5 classification, and includes new discussion on epigenetics and the neighborhood effects on the development of delinquency. Coverage includes extensive discussion of risk factors, from disturbed attachment relations and abuse/neglect, to head injury and teratogen exposure, followed by in-depth examination of behavior disorders and psychological disorders including Autism Spectrum, Schizophrenia Spectrum, and Eating Disorders.

Psychological disorders in children are increasingly being explored from a relational perspective, and continuous advances in neurobiology research are adding an additional dimension to our understanding of cause, effect, and appropriate intervention. This book provides detailed guidance toward all aspects of childhood psychopathology, with a multi-discipline approach and a unique developmental emphasis.

  • Discover how psychopathology emerges throughout the stages of development
  • Learn how both genetics and environmental factors influence risk and behaviors
  • Understand the prevalence, risk factors, and progression of each disorder
  • Gain deep insight from leading experts in neurobiology and developmental psychopathology

As the field of child psychology continues to evolve, behavioral and psychological disorders move beyond a list of symptoms to encompass the ‘whole child’—biology, chemistry, environment, and culture are becoming increasingly relevant in understanding and treating these disorders, and must be considered from the earliest assessment stages. Child and Adolescent Psychopathology provides comprehensive information on childhood disorders from a developmental perspective.
