Embodiment in Psychotherapy: A Practitioner's Guide
This groundbreaking clinical guide explores the theory behind embodiment in psychotherapy, the science that underlies its methods, and how this knowledge can offer greater depth to clinical practice. Experts across the cognitive and behavioral sciences analyze the complex roles of the body in helping create the self and convey agency, and the essential cognitive, emotional, and behavioral processes expressed in movement, gestures, and facial expressions. Diverse techniques are shown bridging gaps between emotional and bodily awareness and verbal and nonverbal communication to reinforce self-regulation, navigate social relationships, and support the therapeutic bond. These practical guidelines demonstrate the versatility of embodiment work in use with individuals, couples, and groups in addressing a wide range of emotional, interpersonal, and somatic concerns. Among the topics covered: * Embodiment as an organizing principle. * Generating body focus: the gate to embodied work and emotional awareness. * Embodiment of social interaction: our place in the world around us. * Resource activation: bringing values into the flesh. * Therapeutic alliance: grounding interaction in space. * The power of embodying values in work place teams. Expanding on while strengthening traditional theory and methods, Embodiment in Psychotherapy brings new directions in healing to researchers, clinicians, and psychotherapists of all schools in psychiatry, counseling, coaching, and social work, as well as psychology students, trainers, managers, and supervisors.

Living With the Other: The Ethic of Inner Retreat
The book grapples with one of the most difficult questions confronting the contemporary world: the problem of the other, which includes ethical, political, and metaphysical aspects. A widespread approach in the history of the discourse on the other, systematically formulated by Emmanuel Levinas and his followers, has invested this term with an almost mythical quality-the other is everybody else but never a specific person, an abstraction of historical human existence. This book offers an alternative view, turning the other into a real being, through a carefully described process involving two dimensions referred to as the ethic of loyalty to the visible and the ethic of inner retreat. Tracing the course of this process in life and in literature, the book presents a broad and lucid picture intriguing to philosophers and also accessible to readers concerned with questions touching on the meaning of life, ethics, and politics, and particularly relevant to the burning issues surrounding attitudes to immigrants as others and to the relationship with God, the ultimate other.

Freud and Philosophy of Mind, Volume 1: Reconstructing the Argument for Unconscious Mental States
This book consists of a focused and systematic analysis of Freud's implicit argument for unconscious mental states. The author employs the unique approach of applying contemporary philosophical methods, especially Kripke-Putnam essentialism, in analyzing Freud's argument. The book elaborates how Freud transformed the intentionality theory of his Cartesian teacher Franz Brentano into what is essentially a sophisticated modern view of the mind. Indeed, Freud redirected Brentano's analysis of consciousness as intentionality into a view of consciousness-independent intentionalism about the mental that in effect set the agenda for latter-twentieth-century philosophy of mind.

REBT in the Treatment of Subclinical and Clinical Depression
The clinical protocols included in this book are focused both on clinical and subclinical depression and are targeted for both adults and youth. After providing a concise overview on depression and the empirical data supporting the clinical protocols, the book illustrates REBT/CBT protocols that provide essential guidance on how to address depression by practitioners at all levels of expertise (e.g. therapists in training and/or more experienced therapists). The field of psychotherapy research is now at a stage where the efficacy (i.e., how treatments work in controlled studies) and effectiveness (i.e., how treatments work in real life) of psychological treatments have been demonstrated for a large spectrum of disorders (Barlow, 2001). Cognitive - behavior therapies (CBT) are considered the gold standard for empirically validated forms of psychotherapy in the treatment of clinical and subclinical depression, showing short- and long-term effects (see Barlow, 2001; Chambless & Hollon, 1998) that are at least as strong as those of pharmacotherapy (medication) or other therapies (i.e., interpersonal therapy; DeRubeis et al., 200 5; Hollon et al., 2005; Shea et al., 1992) and it is hoped that these treatments will help not only treat but also prevent the onset of major depression (Cuijpers, Smit, & Straten, 2007). Cognitive -behavior therapies are based on the premise that psychological problems stem from dysfunctional cognitions (Beck, Rush, Shaw, & Emery, 1979; Ellis, 1962). In CBT, the therapist works with the client to identify and focus upon dysfunctional cognitions to modify them and remedy associated emotional and/or behavior al consequences. Two of the most influential and widespread forms of CBT are cognitive therapy (CT) and rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT) (Elis, 1987; David, 2007; David & Szentagotai, 2006).

SHRINK: The Diet for the Mind
Philippe Tahon has made a thrilling discovery, and it's something many of us will want to know. This highly sought-after London psychotherapist has created a unique set of tools that not only enabled him to lose five stone, but is now doing the same for hundreds of others. In Shrink, Philippe shares his easy programme and teaches you to eat mindfully, intuitively and positively. He encourages you to throw away the rulebook and free yourself forever from emotional eating and the diet trap. In being mindful we can tell how hungry we really are. Using our intuition, we eat only what our body knows is good for us, and when. By eating positively, we no longer regard food as the enemy but make friends with it, embracing it for the pleasure and nourishment it brings. Philippe's holistic technique gives you back your confidence, allows you to retake control and enjoy food guilt-free. Step by step, his clients identify the patterns in their eating habits and learn how to eat what they like whilst losing weight for good. The simple beauty of this hugely successful programme is that it allows you to 'think like a shrink' and have the body you really want - for life.

The Biology of Clinical Encounters: Psychoanalysis as a Science of Mind
In The Biology of Clinical Encounters, Gedo utilizes recent findings in neuroscience and cognitive psychology to elaborate his conception of psychobiology and to consider its implications in clinical analysis. He pursues this challenging undertaking in several directions. He illuminates the way in which psychobiology enters into his hierarchical model of mental functioning, and goes on to examine three clinical syndromes - phobias, obsessions, and affective disturbances - in which biological considerations are particularly important. Of special note are chapters examining the implications of a biological approach for clinical psychoanalysis. Gedo explores the notion of transference that grows out of attentiveness to psychobiological factors, elaborates the concept of therapeutics that follows from looking beyond mental contents, and discusses the problem of assessing clinical evidence produced by analyses informed by a psychobiological orientation. Drawing on his own analytic work of over three decades, he compares analyses conducted with a psychobiological orientation with the outcome of analyses conducted earlier in his career with a more traditional psychological approach. A stimulating introduction to the interpenetration of the biological and the psychological in clinical work, The Biology of Clinical Encounters is quintessential Gedo: scholarly in conception, elegant in tone, provocative in import, and illuminating, always, of fundamental issues about the status of psychoanalysis as a science of mind.

Recipes and Everyday Knowledge: Medicine, Science, and the Household in Early Modern England
Across early modern Europe, men and women from all ranks gathered medical, culinary, and food preservation recipes from family and friends, experts and practitioners, and a wide array of printed materials. Recipes were tested, assessed, and modified by teams of householders, including masters and servants, husbands and wives, mothers and daughters, and fathers and sons. This much-sought know-how was written into notebooks of various shapes and sizes forming treasuries for health, each personalized to suit the whims and needs of individual communities. In Recipes and Everyday Knowledge, Elaine Leong situates recipe knowledge and practices among larger questions of gender and cultural history, the history of the printed word, and the history of science, medicine, and technology. The production of recipes and recipe books, she argues, were at the heart of quotidian investigations of the natural world or household science. She shows how English homes acted as vibrant spaces for knowledge making and transmission, and explores how recipe trials allowed householders to gain deeper understandings of sickness and health, of the human body, and of natural and human-built processes. By recovering this story, Leong extends the parameters of natural inquiry and productively widens the cast of historical characters participating in and contributing to early modern science.

Sensorimotor-Focused EMDR: A New Paradigm for Psychotherapy and Peak Performance
Sensorimotor-Focused EMDR combines two hugely influential and effective therapies, EMDR therapy and sensorimotor psychotherapy, to provide a new approach. In doing so, the book supports the widely held view of psychotherapists that in trauma the primary store of neurological information is somatic rather than cognitive. Many therapists trained in EMDR find that additional resources are needed for patients who present with symptoms of complex trauma and dissociation. This is because EMDR is primarily a top-down approach based on CBT, with the addition of bilateral stimulation (BLS) in visual, tactile and auditory modalities. By contrast, Sensorimotor-Focused EMDR takes a body-based and bottom-up approach that seeks to resolve trauma by reprocessing information at multiple levels - in the gut-brain, the heart-brain and the head-brain, as well as in the endocrine, immune and nervous systems. Fully revised since The Art of BART (2015), the book looks at the latest advances in neuroscience, including research into the effectiveness of psychotherapy and the mysteries of consciousness and the development of mind. It also looks at the role of newly discovered organs, the mesentery and the interstitium, and provides clear anatomical evidence for the communication of biophotons in energy channels known as the primo vascular system. SF-EMDR is the only therapy that fully integrates Western theories of affective neuroscience with Eastern observations on activation of chakras, pranas and energies, and in doing so it offers strong potential for enhanced outcomes and optimized performance for patients.

Middle-Class Waifs: The Psychodynamic Treatment of Affectively Disturbed Children
In this volume, a well-known psychoanalyst, dance therapist, and educational consultant chronicles her clinical work with deeply troubled children who fall between the cracks of our diagnostic and educational systems. These children, who frequently turn out to have been sexually or punitively abused, have no real emotional home despite the fact that they live in materially comfortable circumstances. In spite of their apparent brightness and precocity, they do not thrive in the classroom, where their disruptive behavior, tendency to act out, and fragmented learning bring them to the attention of teachers, counselors, and school psychologists. Standard diagnoses do not explain their plight; such children are neither retarded nor learning disabled nor neurotic. Through poignant case studies, Siegel reviews the developmental circumstances that bring these middle-class waifs to a critical impasse with both their parents and the educational establishment. Time and again she discovers that the children's expectable developmental course has been derailed by their accommodation to parental abuse and deformed parental expectations. Psychodynamic treatment invariably uncovers the maladaptive solutions that fueled the children's behavioral and learning disturbances. This volume speaks to a broad clinical and non-clinical readership: psychoanalytic clinicians; psychologists; counselors; social workers; art, dance, and music therapists; special education teachers; child therapists; and child care workers. They will all join in admiration of Siegel's treatment approach which focuses on what is healthy in deeply traumatized children and, in so doing, helps debunk the myth of the untreatable child.

Interpretation and Interaction: Psychoanalysis or Psychotherapy?
In recent decades the relationship between psychoanalysis and psychotherapy has been a focal point for debate about the distinctiveness of analysis as a particular kind of therapeutic enterprise. In Interpretation and Interaction, Jerome Oremland invokes the interventions of interpretation and interaction, rooted in the values of understanding and amelioration, respectively, as a conceptual basis for reappraising these important issues. In place of the commonly accepted triadic division among psychoanalysis, exploratory psychotherapy, and supportive psychotherapy, he proposes a new triad: psychoanalysis, psychoanalytically-oriented psychotherapy, and interactive psychotherapy. Anchoring his classification in what he terms the orientation of the therapy rather than the orientation of the therapist, Oremland submits that analysis and psychoanalytically-oriented psychotherapy strive systematically to interpret the therapeutic interaction as expressed in the transference. Interactive psychotherapy, on the other hand, uses the transference selectively to ameliorate psychic stress. Interpretation and Interaction is enriched by a concluding chapter from Merton Gill, a preeminent authority on the therapeutic process. Gill's critical appreciation of Oremland's proposals amounts to an illuminating refinement of his own position on the relationship between psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. Scholarly in conception, thoughtful in tone, and pragmatic in yield, Interpretation and Interaction is a clarifying addition to the psychoanalytic theory of psychotherapy. It will have the practical consequence, in Gill's words, of aiding clinicians in retaining their analytic identities and their analytic orientation across the spectrum of their therapeutic work.

Recently, xenophobia as a social standpoint or social attitude has come under increased scrutiny by the public, scholars, and educators; however, few works have directly summarized current theories of xenophobia as well as articulated critical perspectives on the issue. This work provides an overview of the concept, historical factors related to its development, and a review of varied theoretical perspectives. The intertwining of psychological and sociological perspectives allows the author to present a multi-dimensional, multi-layered argument in a way which effectively prevents any attempt to apply any one single over-arching theory, and thus effectively presents the complexity of the topic at hand.

Current Thinking and Research in Brief Therapy
In Volume 2 of Current Thinking and Research in Brief Therapy the author's consideration of Ericksonian-influenced brief therapy continues. Presently, there is a concern among those in the psychotherapy profession who worry that this area of science will become heartless. Others are equally concerned that their hearts not become science-less in the future. In this volume, the authors respect both viewpoints and attempt to weave these notions together. Throughout this book, different types of emotions in psychotherapy unfold. For instance, Harry Aponte presents a thoughtful piece on the issue of client-therapy intimacy, while Doug Flemons and Shelley Green, a married couple, share a humorous yet sensitive article on sexual concerns in couples, and finally, Daniel Handel provides a powerful story of the use of hypnosis with a dying adolescent. In addition to the emotional side of psychotherapy, the authors include the scientific aspects of psychotherapy. A discussion about various models of brief therapy is given, emphasizing that the therapeutic effects of the treatment models are attributable to the non-treatment specifics of the therapeutic interaction. A review of empirical data on the key elements of Ericksonian hypnosis and the social-psychological aspect of Ericksonian hypnosis are discussed as well. Finally, an important, and perhaps controversial, essay on ethics in the general non-therapeutic use of hypnosis by lawyers and its use in recovering memories is presented.

The Mental Health Professional and the New Technologies: A Handbook for Practice Today
In the last two decades, new communication technologies have dramatically changed the world in which mental health professionals and their patients live. Developments such as e-mail, online chat groups, Web pages, search engines, and electronic databases are directly or indirectly affecting most people's routines and expectations. Other developments are poised to do so in the near future. Already, for example, patients are acquiring both good and bad advice and information on the Web; many expect to be able to reach their therapists by e-mail. And already there is pressure from third party payers for providers to submit claims electronically. These technological breakthroughs have the potential to make mental health care more widely available and accessible, affordable, acceptable to patients, and adaptable to special needs. But many mental health professionals, as well as those who train them, are skeptical about integrating the new capabilities into their services and question the ethical and legal appropriateness of doing so. Those unfamiliar with the technologies tend to be particularly doubtful. How much e-mail contact with patients should I encourage or permit, and for what purposes? Why should I set up a Web site and how do I do so and what should I put on it? Should I refer patients to chat groups or Web-based discussion forums? Could video-conferencing be a helpful tool in some cases and what is involved? How do I avoid trouble if I dare to experiment with innovations? And last but not least, will the results of my experimentation be cost-effective? The book includes: an extensive overview of legal and regulatory issues, such as those raised by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA); concrete technical, ethical, and managerial suggestions summarized in a seven-step Online Consultation Risk Management model; and how to resource lists and sample documents of use to beginners and experienced professionals alike.

The Art of Creating a Magical Session: Key Elements for Transformative Psychotherapy
Recent research has repeatedly confirmed that it is not the technique nor the theory, but the interaction between therapists and clients that creates change in clients. This practical guide outlines the ways in which psychotherapists can find new methods of moving their therapy sessions toward dynamic, healing interactions by shifting away from an overreliance on techniques and theories. The Art of Creating a Magical Session discusses the key elements needed to create the interaction conditions for transformational therapeutic change to occur. Using a conceptual approach to client transformation, the book draws from a diverse range of sources including indigenous traditions and rituals, as well as the latest research on the common factors that contribute to success in the therapy room. Each chapter focuses on educating and inspiring mental health professionals to easily adapt and apply creative and resourceful approaches to help their own clients begin inner transformations. With case studies and narratives woven throughout, this accessible guide will support mental health practitioners as they approach their practice in new ways and achieve deeper, and more magical, therapy sessions. It will be valuable reading for psychotherapists, psychologists, social workers and counselors.

This book equips readers with the knowledge required to improve diagnosis and treatment and to implement integrated prevention programs in patients with eating and weight disorders.

The third part discusses body image in people suffering from different eating disorders and/or overweight or obesity, and two final chapters focus on body image in the integrated prevention of eating disorders and obesity, and cultural differences regarding body image. The book will be of interest to all health professionals who work in the fields of psychiatry, clinical psychology, eating disorders, obesity, body image, adolescence, public health, and prevention.

Systems Theories for Psychotherapists: From Theory to Practice
Systems Theories for Psychotherapists explores three key theories that underpin many of the models of psychotherapy: general systems theory, natural systems theory, and language systems theory. The book presents the aesthetics (how to see and understand what is happening) and the pragmatics (what to do in the therapy room) behind each theory. It also explores how therapists can successfully conceptualize the problems that clients bring to therapy, offering a range of contemporary examples to show how each theory can be applied to practice. Starting with an introduction to systems theories, the book then delves into cybernetics, interactional systems, natural systems, constructivist theory, and social construction theory. Each chapter uses a distinctive case example to help clinicians to better understand and apply the theories to their own therapeutic setting. Woven throughout the book are three helpful learning tools: Applying Your Knowledge, Key Figure, and Questions for Reflection, providing the reader with the opportunity to critically engage with each concept, consider how their own world view and preconceptions can inform their work with clients, and challenging them to apply prominent systems theories to their own practice. Systems Theories for Psychotherapists is a clear and valuable text for undergraduate and graduate students in mental health programs, including counseling, marriage and family therapy, social work and clinical psychology, as well as for all practicing clinicians.

Experts across integrative medicine offer accessible blueprints for smoothly implementing data-based behavioral interventions, from disease management strategies to treatment of psychological problems, into patient-centered, cost-effective integrated care.

Drugs and Child Maltreatment
This book combines experience in child protection with expertise in clinical pharmacology and forensic toxicology, to set out a broad contemporary understanding of child maltreatment with drugs. It explores presentations that range through ante-natal exposure, factitious illness, deliberate poisoning, drug accidents while in the care of drug-affected adults, misuse of therapeutic drugs and the drug-related death of a child. It describes how to recognise where deliberate drug exposure or perversion of proper therapeutics is being used to harm a child, how to use laboratory testing to confirm a diagnosis, how to combine medical and social care with the need to gather legal evidence and how to deploy social, medical and legal resources for child protection. The roles of the forensic toxicologist and contemporary forensic laboratory methods in resolving cryptic presentations are discussed in each context. There is guidance on effective communication about drugs within the child protection team and on writing reports for legal purposes, on the way to returning the child to safety. The book also explores the particular difficulties that arise in reconciling parents' rights and cultural beliefs with the obligation to document a child's drug exposure and in dealing with parents and carers who themselves may be drug-impaired.
