The publication of a medical textbook for a new or emerging field always signals a turning point—a shift
toward greater awareness of theories, basic science research, and modes of clinical practice at the cutting
edge of medicine. Essentials of Complementary and Alternative Medicine represents just such a coming of
age for an important new clinical and scientific field.

Physiology plays a major role in the scientific foundation of medicine and other
subjects related to human health and physical performance. Pharmacology is the
science which deals with the effects of drugs on living systems and their use in the
treatment of disease. This book is designed to enhance students’ understanding of
physiology and pharmacology via a series of case studies involving human disease
and its treatment.
Traditional university teaching methods focus on informing students in terms of
physiological and pharmacological theory.
Having worked in and traveled to many countries, most recently as the Ambassador
and Permanent Representative of Thailand to the United Nations, I have
seen people in different societies react to trauma in various ways. While experts
contributed to this important book, Trauma Psychology: Issues in Violence, Disaster,
Health, and Illness, I share my perspectives from serving the people of Thailand and
other nations and from my experiences in the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami that
struck the cities and towns in the Indian Ocean rim, including Thailand.
During the past decade, consultation activities that
focus on managers and senior leaders in organizations
have increasingly been referred to as executive
coaching. This term has begun to take on a technical
meaning within the field of organization development,
yet the area of practice has suffered significantly
from a relative lack of specific attention to it
in the professional literature.
Psychological distress increases with the intensity of cancer pain. Cancer pain is often under-reported
and under-treated for a variety of complex reasons, partly due to a number of beliefs held by patients,
families and healthcare professionals. There is evidence that cognitive behavioural techniques that
address catastrophising and promote self-efficacy lead to improved pain management. Group format pain
management programmes could contribute to the care of cancer survivors with persistent pain.
In the fullness of time, our progress in understanding the natural order
advances through the process of science, and psychology is no exception.
To gain perspectives on this progress, one needs to take the long view of
a historian. In so doing, one will come to appreciate the role of great
ideas and creative individuals, while at the same time realizing that our
cumulative progress is greater than any one idea or individual.
An essential part of any business impact analysis is determining the potential effects of a
pandemic on company business financials using multiple possible scenarios that affect
different product lines and/or production sites. Depending on the sector and severity of
the pandemic, the decline in demand could range from 3 per cent (mild scenario,
manufacturing industry) to 67 percent (severe scenario, transportation and warehousing
industry). Conversely, demand in the health sector will increase.
The recession was intertwined with a major financial crisis that exacerbated the negative effects
on the economy. Falling stock and house prices led to a large decline in household wealth (net
worth), which plummeted by over $16 trillion or about 24% during 2008 and 2009. In addition,
the financial panic led to an explosion of risk premiums (i.e., compensation to investors for
accepting extra risk over relatively risk-free investments such as U.S.

Traditional healing has been defined as “practices designed to promote mental,
physical and spiritual well-being that are based on beliefs which go back to the
time before the spread of western ‘scientific’ bio-medicine. When Aboriginal
Peoples in Canada talk about traditional healing, they include a wide range of
activities, from physical cures using herbal medicines and other remedies, to the
promotion of psychological and spiritual well-being using ceremony, counseling
and the accumulated wisdom of elders (RCAP, 1996, Vol.3: 348). ...
We use discretionary accruals as a measure of earnings quality (Beneish and Vargus, 2002;
Chan, Chan, Jegadeesh, and Lakonishok, 2006). According to the accounting identity, earnings
are equal to cash flows plus accruals. Accruals are accounting adjustments designed to better
reflect firms’ fundamental operations. However, accruals are subject to managers’ discretion,
which may distort reported earnings.
Therapeutic patient education* has brought about a significant de-
crease in the number of hospital admissions of patients with bronchial
asthma or diabetic coma. In addition to a decrease of lower limb am-
putations it has resulted in a better quality of life by delaying amputa-
tions in 75% of cases
There is a need to emphasize the role of patients’ families and
significant others in long-term care.
Non-adherence should not be seen as the patient’s problem. It represents a
fundamental limitation in the delivery of healthcare, often because of a failure
to fully agree the prescription in the first place or to identify and provide the
support that patients need later on.
Addressing non-adherence is not about getting patients to take more
medicines per se. Rather, it starts with an exploration of patients’ perspectives
of medicines and the reasons why they may not want or are unable to use

Writing a second edition is a first for me, and therefore to maintain proximity to the
subject matter I recruited the help of my younger brother, whom I thank dearly. This
second edition comes after five years and contains many necessary additions, deletions
and refinements. However, the text remains succinct and true to its original objectives
with an emphasis on aiding memory.
During this period the MRCPsych examination has altered considerably and will no
