Book Description :

Adjunctive treatments, in which patients are provided additional modalities that can assist in their behavior change or the maintenance of their behavior change (i.e. telehealth, psychoeducation, consumer-driven treatment planning), have a useful role in addressing problems that can't be solved by face-to-face meetings. The adjunctive therapies covered in this book are all based on improving patient’s self management of their problems or the factors that exacerbate their problems. The book is broadly organized into two sections. The first gives a broad overview of the major adjunctive modalities and the second concentrates on a systematic description of their role in the treatment of a number of special populations while providing practical suggestions for the timing and coordination for the use of the adjunctive therapies discussed in the book.

Book Description :

Face to face psychotherapy is useful, but expensive, in terms of direct professional fees and associated administrative costs. Moreover, conventional face-to-face therapy also has significant indirect costs such as stigma, and opportunity costs (e.g., time and effort required to attend sessions). Finally, this mode of therapy is simply not available to some individuals because of the uneven distribution of expertise in certain geographical areas. These barriers result in a number of individuals needing care to go untreated or receiving less than optimal treatment. Moreover, a persistent problem with many therapies is that they have a high rate of relapse. There is significant attention being placed in attempts to remedy these problems. For example, President Bush's recent New Freedom Commission on Mental Health report stressed the role of telehealth, psychoeducation, consumer driven treatment planning and wrap around services in redesigning mental health service delivery in the U.S. Adjunctive treatments in which patients are provided additional modalities that can assist in their behavior change or the maintenance of their behavior change have a useful role in addressing these problems. In a stepped care model, patients meeting certain criteria (e.g., lower intensity of the problem) can perhaps first be triaged to one or more of these adjunctive therapies. Alternatively, these adjunctive therapies can be prescribed commitently with ongoing face to face therapy. A third possibility is that one or more of these interventions can be prescribed post-face-to-face therapy in an attempt to maintain positive changes and to prevent relapse. These adjunctive therapies are all based on improving patient's self management of their problems or the factors that exacerbate their problems. The web can help them gain additional information and support; bibliotherapy (such as David Burn's very successful Feeling Good) can allow them to efficiently learn more treatment options and behavior change techniques. Lifestyle changes such as improvements in exercise have recently been shown to be as effective as anti-depressant medication. This approach is consistent with the recent movements related to patient centered care and consumer driven health care. These and the other possibilities discussed in the book are currently underutilized in treatment planning and this book in part is meant to correct this gap. There is no current book that has this perspective. This book will be unique in drawing together all of these adjunctive therapies. It will examine the evidence base for each of these and identify problems where the data show that they are efficacious. Practical suggestions will be given for the timing and coordination for the use of these. The chapter authors will be asked to identify key elements that appear to be related to quality. Finally, since these is a relatively new field, authors will be asked to discuss the research and the knowledge dissemination issues. The book is broadly organized into two sections. The first gives a broad overview of the major adjunctive modalities while the second concentrates on a systematic description of their role in the treatment of a number of special populations. The book editors are individuals with histories in organized systems of mental health care, brief and cost-effective psychotherapies, research, teaching, and innovations in each of these. Thus, we believe the book will gain attention. It meets a significant need in the managed care industry: how to promote innovations that at once produce healthier individuals and bring down costs. Compared to physical medicine, the behavioral health industry has been slow to innovate, and slow to adopt modern technologies such as web based interventions, and this results in unnecessary costs and less healthy patients. This book is an attempt to help spur these innovations.

Adolescence is typically fraught with problems, even under optimal conditions. And when chronic illness is added to the picture, medical and related social issues can complicate, and even disrupt, the course of development. The first text geared toward the integrated care setting, Behavioral Approaches to Chronic Disease in Adolescence offers clinicians an evidence-based guide to helping their young clients manage their chronic conditions and treating the psychosocial effects—from school problems and stigma to noncompliance and depression—that frequently follow diagnosis. Expert contributors present up-to-date information on epidemiology, symptoms, comorbid psychosocial problems, and treatment options for a variety of common illnesses, arranged to foster effective interventions for adolescents and efficient collaboration with other care providers in the team. Coverage is comprehensive, authoritative, and accessible, ensuring best practice while respecting each client’s individuality: Empirically-based treatment guidelines for illnesses commonly found in youth, including Type 1 and 2 diabetes, asthma, cancer, obesity, and chronic pain. Overview of the physiology of adolescence, particularly as it may be affected by medical conditions, and of adolescent brain development. Latest findings on the role of families in teens’ adjustment to illness and treatment. Cultural considerations affecting ethnically diverse clients and their families. Detailed discussions of ethical issues relevant to treating chronically ill young people, and of controversies involving pharmacotherapy with this population. Chapters contain useful handouts for clinicians and clients. Taking Care of the Practitioner” chapter with helpful strategies for avoiding burnout. Its emphasis on specific practical information makes Behavioral Approaches to Chronic Disease in Adolescence a “go-to” reference for health psychologists, child and adolescent mental health practitioners, pediatricians and family practitioners, and clinical social workers.

Book Description :

Emerging Adults and Substance Use Disorder Treatment addresses how a societal shift in the timing of developmental tasks affects treatment outcomes for substance use disorders, which are among the most highly prevalent and costly mental health problems in the United States. It presents readers with a summary of the developmental period of emerging adulthood as well as a comprehensive review of state-of-the-art substance use disorder treatments for this group. There are an estimated 30.6 million emerging adults living in the US, and as many as 34.5% of them have serious problems with substances that often require clinical treatments. That equates to 10.5 million emerging adults ages 18-25 in the United States with a substance use disorder. However, research on substance use disorder treatments for emerging adults lags behind that for adolescents and older adults. This book fills a gap for academic audiences on this important and up-and-coming area of research. The first half of this volume address developmental issues associated with emerging adulthood, paying specific attention to how developmental features influence diagnosis and treatment. The second half of the book presents the state-of-the-science on interventions for emerging adults, with each chapter summarizing either a body of work on a particular type of intervention or a special topic affecting intervention delivery to emerging adults.

Book Description :

The number of individuals diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder has increased in the past decade, not only in the military and veteran population but within the civilian population as well. Traditional treatments such as pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy have provided less-than-ideal results proving to be less effective when used alone to treat the disorder. Complementary and Alternative Medicine for PTSD supplements these traditional treatments, using new and effective techniques to fill the therapeutic void. The alternative therapies covered include acceptance and commitment therapy, acupuncture, alternative pharmacology, canine assistive therapy, family focused interventions, internet and computer-based therapy, meditation techniques, mobile applications, recreational therapy, resilience training, transracial magnetic stimulation, virtual reality exposure therapy, and yoga. Each chapter delivers the most up-to-date understanding of neurobiology, best practices, and key points for clinicians and patients considering inclusion of these treatments in patient care. Drs. David Benedek and Gary Wynn offer insight into the future of complementary and alternative medicine, shining a light onto how these techniques fit into clinical practice to create the most beneficial treatments for the patient. This book is both an essential resource and practical guide to everyday clinical interactions. It is a necessary addition to the medical library for students and senior clinicians alike.

Book Description :

Clinical research has produced a continuous stream of evidence-based guidelines to guide practice in gynaecology. The guidelines are often widely scattered: this book brings together the essential guidelines in one comprehensive resource. The primary focus is on Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and other UK national guidelines; however, many chapters contain a 'Guideline Comparator' box carrying information from important international guidelines. Where there are no UK guidelines, information based on international guidelines is provided; where any guidelines do not exist, available evidence and accepted norms of practice based on expert opinion are detailed. Several chapters also contain a 'what not to do' box, which should act as a source of rich debate. To assist those studying for postgraduate examinations - such as MRCOG - the information is presented in schematic flowcharts, representing a step-by-step method of approaching clinical problems and providing an easy-to-use learning resource.

Book Description :

Clinicians searching for evidence-based quantitative assessments on which to base diagnosis and treatment of patients with bipolar disorder need look no further. Advances in Treatment of Bipolar Disorders analyzes the benefits and harms for both older and more recently developed treatments, and places these analyses in the context of the authors' many years of clinical experience. The result is a book that is both quantitatively sound and qualitatively rich, and one that will help clinicians understand the latest research and integrate it into their practices with confidence. In addition to comprehensive coverage of the most important recent advances, the book addresses advances in more specific areas, including the treatment of particular populations such as women, children, and older adults. In addition, the book covers many critically important topics and boasts an abundance of helpful features: Evidence-based quantitative assessments of benefits use "numbers needed to treat" for therapeutic effects and "numbers needed to harm" for side effects, ensuring that the quality of data supporting interventions meets a rigorous standard. The book's information is based not only on controlled trials and FDA approvals but also on almost two decades of clinical research and clinical treatment experience by clinicians at Stanford University. Plentiful figures and summary tables are provided to summarize the content and make it easy-to-grasp and clinician-friendly. In addition to coverage of acute bipolar depression and acute manic and mixed episodes, the book provides chapters on the preventive treatment of bipolar disorder and the pharmacology of mood-stabilizing and second-generation antipsychotic medications. Bipolar disorders are challenging and complex mental illnesses, and clinicians need all the help they can get in managing the effects of these illness on their patients' lives. Advances in Treatment of Bipolar Disorders aims to provide everything clinicians need to know to update their knowledge of this rapidly evolving field and ensure an evidence-based standard of care for this patient population.

Book Description :

Once thought pure entertainment akin to magic acts, hypnosis is now a growing field being practiced by psychologists, psychiatrists, and medical doctors. Across all ages—from children to adults and the elderly—patients are finding professional, therapeutic hypnosis can help them recover from mental maladies ranging from addiction to depression and psychosis, and from physical illnesses from chronic pain to obesity and skin disorders. Studies show hypnosis can even speed healing from broken bones, burns, and surgery. These unprecedented volumes, including some of the best-known experts in the field hailing from Harvard, Stanford and other top universities, cover the newest research and practice in this intriguing arena. Edited by a psychologist at Harvard Medical School, this set explains developments in hypnosis, from its colorful if misguided inception with Anton Mesmer, across clinical techniques developed for health care in the 20th century, to emerging research showing new potential applications to aide mental and physical health. Chapters also highlight what psychologists, neurologists, physicians, and scientists have discovered about how personality, cognition, and brain functions affect, and are affected by, hypnosis. An appendix explains how to tell the difference between an entertainer or charlatan and a practitioner who is trained, credentialed, and practicing research-backed hypnosis. Universities with hypnotherapy programs and courses are also included.
