The Wiley Concise Guides to Mental Health are designed to provide mental
health professionals with easily accessible overview of what is currently
known about the nature and treatment of psychological disorders. Each
book in the series delineates the origins, manifestations, and course of a commonly
occurring disorder and discusses effective procedures for its treatment.
The authors of the Concise Guides draw on relevant research as well as their clinical
expertise to ground their text both in empirical findings and in wisdom
gleaned from practical experience.
There are a wide range of problems that are considered psychological
disorders, including mental and emotional disorders, problems
related to alcohol and drug abuse, and some diseases that cause both
emotional and physical symptoms. Psychological disorders often begin in
early childhood, but during adolescence we see a sharp increase in the
number of people affected by these disorders. It has been estimated that
about 20 percent of the U.S. population will have some form of mental
disorder sometime during their lifetime. Some psychological disorders
appear following severe stress or trauma.

This book is the long-anticipated sequel to the first edition of Psychological Aspects
of Women’s Health Care written almost a decade ago. In this edition, the authors
continue the tradition of writing and speaking plainly about the
fascinating, and at times baffling, relationships between women patients and
their obstetrician and gynecologist physicians. As the authors note, the field
has changed dramatically since the first volume was published.

NHS policy and the provision of psychological services in the NHS.
An outstanding range of contributors provides an overview of
evidencebased health care and the research methods that underpin it,
demonstrating its effect on policy, provision, practitioners and patients.
This book has an aim to present latest applications, trends and developments of virtual reality technologies in three humanities disciplines: in medicine, psychology and pedagogy. Studies show that people in both educational as well as in the medical therapeutic range expect more and more that modern media are included in the corresponding demand and supply structures. For the Internet and various mobile media, associated research and application projects now have fixed key words such as "E-learning" and "E-Mental Health" or "M-Learning", "M-Mental Health"....
would like to introduce this encyclopedia of psychology
by focusing on both twenty-first century
and more distant historical contexts, while additionally
highlighting the scope and depth of the work of
psychologists, their students, and their supporters.
As reading these volumes will show, psychology is a
diverse and large field. It is also a science. I remind
readers that most of the research described in these
volumes is completed through the silent contributions
of tens of thousands of volunteers as well as
nonhuman animal participants.
Every clinician knows that the human relationship with the person diagnosed with a psychotic
disorder and particularly schizophrenia is the cornerstone of effective therapy and
the foundation for recovery. This was one of the major tenets of an earlier generation of
psychotherapeutic effort in schizophrenia and related psychoses but had drifted out of focus
during the 1980s with the rise of an excessively narrowbiological psychiatry and the decline
of the traditional psychoanalytic approach.
The aim of this volume is to focus on how counseling psychology fosters and
builds optimal human strength and well-being. Counseling psychology in some
form has always been a vital part of promoting good health and preventing
mental, physical, and social disorders. The chapters in this book show how
counseling psychology plays a major role in helping people make changes at
home, work, and in the community in ways that prevent disease risk and
strengthen personal and social resources.
Caring for the Patient with Deficits of Higher Cerebral Function
Some of the deficits described in this chapter are so complex that they may bewilder not only the patient and family but also the physician. It is imperative to carry out a systematic clinical evaluation in order to characterize the nature of the deficits and explain them in lay terms to the patient and family. Such an explanation can allay at least some of the anxieties, address the mistaken impression that the deficit (e.g.
Background: Depressive disorder is often chronic and recurrent, and results in a heavy psychosocial burden on the families of patients with this disorder. This study aims to examine the effectiveness of brief multifamily psychoeducation designed to alleviate their psychosocial burden. Methods: Thirty-two relatives of patients with major depressive disorder participated in an open study testing the effectiveness of brief multifamily psychoeducation. The intervention consisted of four sessions over the...
Well-being is more than the absence of mental illness. One review of the literature (Ryan &
Deci, 2001) describes it as ‘optimal psychological functioning and experience’. Precisely what
constitutes optimal experience has been the subject of philosophical debate since the roots of
the hedonic tradition in the 4th century BC when it was proposed that the goal of life was to
experience the maximum amount of pleasure.
.Treating Personality Disorder
This book considers personality disorders and how they are treated within the institutional context of prisons and hospitals and oﬀers practical guidance on assessment, formulation and integrated treatment planning.
This guideline has been developed to advise on the treatment and management of
borderline personality disorder. The guideline recommendations have been developed
by a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals, service users, a carer and
guideline methodologists after careful consideration of the best available evidence.
I am a clinical psychologist. The guiding training model for clinical
psychology is called "scientist-practitioner" which demands that any
Ph.D. clinical psychologist must be trained both as a scientist and
practitioner. Since receiving my Ph.D.
More than 30 years ago, Aaron T. Beck (1967, 1976) emphasized the
operation of cognitive schemas as the most fundamental factor in his theories
of emotional disorders. Schemas, accordingly, played a principal role in the
development and maintenance of psychological disorders as well as in the
recurrence and relapse of episodes.
