"It is refreshing to see both a researcher's and a clinician's viewpoint. The case examples in the clinician sections are great learning tools. This is a wonderful reference for both new therapists and seasoned veterans. Researchers also will learn how clinicians use theories in the real world."Score: 92, 4 StarsDoody's Medical Reviews ìThe format, whereby the evidence for efficacy of psychological interventions for the problem in question is reviewed by an expert followed by a clinician presenting a case where these treatments were actually utilized, and the real-life problems one runs up against in the course of treatment is innovative enough. But then to repeat this for 65 different problems in a manageable and succinct format represents a true integration of science and practice in a way that will move us forward.î David H.

Genre: Medical

This volume describes the basics for short- and long-term treatment of Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures (PNES) in children. The text acknowledges that the disorder, though rare and highly morbid, is treatable when it is not misdiagnosed. Given the limited diagnostic and clinical training offered to clinicians, this book aims to equip professionals with the tools needed to improve the poor quality of life of youth with PNES. The text begins by introducing the main features of the disorder and the problems involved in diagnosing PNES in children. It then describes techniques to overcome these problems in order to make a reliable and valid diagnosis of PNES, as well as provide feedback on the diagnosis and treatment plan. The last section describes the indications for cognitive behavior therapy for youth with PNES and suggested treatment paradigms. Incorporation of do’s and don’ts and their relevant clinical examples in all sections of the proposed guide provide the reader with skills and techniques. The book also includes an appendix with resources for parents, children, and school nurses and teachers, relaxation techniques for the child and parents, templates of letters for the child’s school about the condition and behavior management plan, templates of supporting letters from epileptologists and primary care physicians, CBT treatment paradigm, and information on individual supervision, workshops and webinars. Written by the few experts in this area, Pediatric Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures is the ultimate guide for psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, primary care physicians, neurologists, epileptologists, social workers, nurses, school counselors, and all medical professionals working with children experiencing seizures.

Therapeutic Storytelling for Adolescents and Young Adults

Author: Johanna Slivinske
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780199335190
Release Date: 2013-10-17
Genre: Social Science

Adolescents are often an overlooked clinical population. Among school-based practitioners, there is a natural inclination to focus the delivery of mental health services, assessment measures, and intervention plans on younger children, and there is a strong research base to support these programs. On the other hand, the waiting rooms of most practitioners in private practice are filled with young and middle-age adults, couples, or families with young children. Because most therapists do not specialize in working with teens, who might make up only a small portion of their overall caseload, there is a need for high quality, easily implemented activities to help engage with adolescent clients. This book provides an overview of the principles of therapeutic storytelling, developmental issues of adolescents and young adulthood, and their strengths-based model, before moving into a series of chapters devoted to specific issues. Commonly encountered topics such as sexuality, parent & peer relationships, substance abuse, violence & gangs, bereavement, and cultural and religious issues are covered within the chapters. Includes a convenient companion website designed to facilitate ease of use for the busy professional or academic contains printable storytelling and activity worksheets, color photographs for phototherapy and guided imagery, and additional resources/website links.

Acceptatie en Commitment Therapie bij kinderen en jongeren is een dynamisch werkboek, waarbij alle elementen/vaardigheden voor psychologische flexibiliteit aanwezig zijn, maar waar de volgorde minder vast staat.

Dit werkboek heeft als doel voldoende algemene theoretische ondersteuning te bieden voor onbekenden met de methodiek om het toe te kunnen passen. De uitgave is een aanvulling op bestaande boeken over de theorie en praktijk vanwege de theoretische koppeling van ACT met kinderen en jongeren; de oefeningen en metaforen die worden gebruikt, zijn aangepast op de belevingswereld en ontwikkelingsniveau van kinderen en jongeren. Vanwege de grote verzameling van oefeningen en metaforen, gepresenteerd als ‘kaartenbak’ in dit werkboek, zijn onbekenden met ACT eerder geneigd de methodiek toe te passen.

Akzeptanz und Commitment Therapie

Author: John T. Blackledge
Publisher: Junfermann Verlag GmbH
ISBN: 9783955710019
Release Date: 2014-03-12
Genre: Psychology

Die Akzeptanz- & Commitment-Therapie, kurz ACT, ist eine moderne Verhaltenstherapie. Im Gegensatz zu eher traditionellen kognitiven Verhaltenstherapien zielt die ACT nicht darauf ab, unerwünschte Gedanken oder Emotionen zu reduzieren oder zu eliminieren. Die Klienten lernen stattdessen, ihre Energie auf ein zufriedenstellendes Leben zu fokussieren, und zwar trotz negativer Gedanken und Empfindungen. Dieses Buch demonstriert übersichtlich und einprägsam, wie das gelingen kann. Wie hat sich die ACT entwickelt? Was sind ihre typischen Kennzeichnen? Und wie grenzt sie sich von anderen Therapien ab? Hier erhalten Sie eine fundierte Einführung. Das Buch ist ein weiterer Band aus der Reihe „Therapeutische Skills kompakt“, in der Theorie und Praxis einzelner Therapieformen fundiert und kurzweilig vorgestellt werden.

"Ich habe Feeling Good geschrieben, um meinen eigenen Patienten für die Zeit zwischen den Therapiesitzungen etwas zu lesen mit auf den Weg zu geben und so ihren Lernprozess und ihre Genesung zu beschleunigen. Ich hätte aber nicht einmal im Traum gedacht, dass diese Idee auch von anderen Lesern so positiv aufgenommen werden würde!" David Burns.
