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.

Antipsychiatry: Quackery Squared

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Antipsychiatry: Quackery Squared
Jul 102020
 

More than fifty years ago, Thomas Szasz showed that the concept of mental illness—a disease of the mind—is an oxymoron, a metaphor, a myth. Disease, in the medical sense, affects only the body. He also demonstrated that civil commitment and the insanity defense, the paradigmatic practices of psychiatry, are incompatible with the political values of personal responsibility and individual liberty. The psychiatric establishment’s rejection of Szasz’s critique posed no danger to his work: its defense of coercions and excuses as “therapy” supported his argument regarding the metaphorical nature of mental illness and the transparent immorality of brutal psychiatric control masquerading as humane medical care.

In the late 1960s, the launching of the so-called antipsychiatry movement vitiated Szasz’s effort to present a precisely formulated conceptual and political critique of the medical identity of psychiatry. Led by the Scottish psychiatrist R. D. Laing, the antipsychiatrists used the term to attract attention to themselves and to deflect attention from what they did, which included coercions and excuses based on psychiatric principles and power.

For this reason, Szasz rejected, and continues to reject, psychiatry and antipsychiatry with equal vigor. Subsuming his work under the rubric of antipsychiatry betrays and negates it just as surely and effectively as subsuming it under the rubric of psychiatry. In Antipsychiatry: Quackery Squared, Szasz powerfully argues that his writings belong to neither psychiatry nor antipsychiatry. They stem from conceptual analysis, social-political criticism, and common sense.
