52 Years Coping with Chronic Back Pain Book Excerpt:

This book is about holistic strategies and techniques I discovered to keep me active and alert by reducing pain. It encourages you to focus on the things you can do and enjoy, such as playing and learning instruments, rather than what you cannot do. I developed a Continually Growing Big Plan which included: healthy living and healthy eating; home treatments; physical and mental exercises; complementary medicine and other alternative treatments such as yoga, tai-chi, meditation, Positive Mental Attitude (PMA), relaxation techniques, pacing, activating endorphins and many more. Attitude and self-awareness impact on how we deal with obstacles and pain; it is a twofold battle: physical and mental. Included are pointers on: -PMA - Is the practice of continually searching to improve the current situation. -Optimism - A willingness to make an effort; readiness to do something. -Acceptance - Acknowledging your current situation, which may change. -Resilience - Bouncing back from adversity and never giving up. -Gratitude - Appreciate the good things in life, focussing only on positives. -Determination - Being purposeful, tenacious and resolute. -Open mindedness – Being receptive to new ideas. -Lateral thinking – Viewing problems from a new and unusual perspective. -Creativity – Being imaginative to create or change your approach. -Investigative mind – Be willing to learn more about every aspect of your condition and what can be done to improve it. -Decisiveness – Developing the ability to make decisions with confidence. -Organised/Discipline mind – Developing the ability to reflect and control feelings and impulses. This attitude refers to a person's self-management skills. -Tolerance – Developing the capacity to endure pain by focussing on the above attitudes. -Self-confidence – Developing all of the above will boost self-confidence and regain trust on your own abilities, qualities, decision making and judgement. It is my greatest wish that this book inspires and empower readers to seek their own personal positive outcomes. The key is: Never give up!

Self Help in Mental Health Book Excerpt:

Self-help is big business, but alas not a scienti c business. The estimated 10 billion—that’s with a “b”—spent each year on self-help in the United States is rarely guided by research or monitored by mental health professionals. Instead, marketing and metaphysics triumph. The more outrageous the “miraculous cure” and the “r- olutionary secret,” the better the sales. Of the 3,000 plus self-help books published each year, only a dozen contain controlled research documenting their effectiveness as stand-alone self-help. Of the 20,000 plus psychological and relationship web sites available on the Internet, only a couple hundred meet professional standards for accuracy and balance. Most, in fact, sell a commercial product. Pity the layperson, or for that matter, the practitioner, trying to navigate the self-help morass. We are bombarded with thousands of potential resources and c- tradictory advice. Should we seek wisdom in a self-help book, an online site, a 12-step group, an engaging autobiography, a treatment manual, an inspiring movie, or distance writing? Should we just do it, or just say no? Work toward change or accept what is? Love your inner child or grow out of your Peter Pan? I become confused and discouraged just contemplating the choices.

Chronic Pain a Self Help Guide Book Excerpt:

Chronic Pain: A Self-Help Guide offers a practical program for coping with chronic pain. Dr. Steven W. Pollard appraises the current methods for managing chronic pain and presents his program for a down-to-earth, flexible menu of coping strategies for fellow sufferers of chronic pain. Walking step-by-step through the stages of pain from denial, anger, bartering, and depression to acceptance, Dr. Pollard leads the sufferer gently on the route towards a clear and simple set of guidelines to enable them to live with, cope with, and take control of their own lives in the midst of chronic pain. In approximately August of 2008, he began developing his own severe chronic lower back pain and suffered with it for the next three years. His experience with severe chronic pain gave him the impetus to develop a program to help him cope with the pain. While he still has some severe pain, he has regained new purpose in his life to help others learn how to cope with their pain. With his professional training in treating severe chronic pain and the added advantage of experiencing severe pain himself, he was able to develop the effective method for managing chronic pain. Now he presents both his story and his methods in hopes of helping others overcome their suffering and build new lives.

Recrafting a Life Book Excerpt:

Chronic illness and pain are now, more than ever, seen asas major problems in the current health care system. Because they are unresponsive to both antibiotics and surgery, theyr are seen as elusive and mysterious. The National Medical Expenditure Survey estimates that over 80 million U.S. citizens live with a chronic illness. The most prevalent are arthritis, diabetes, respiratory diseases, hypertension and mental illness. This book uses the novel Robinson Crusoe as an archetypal metaphor for the patients who must learn to survive on their own isolated "island" of chronic pain. This unique style is combined with a variety of in-session approaches and other tools which clients have found helpful in identifying their goals and progress. By emphasizing the importance of self-care the authors hope to diminish the sense of helplessness felt by the both the patients their loved ones.

Creating Your Giant Self Book Excerpt:

A critical reason this is (well, maybe not THE best) a useful book is that YOU do the work! The more you apply what you learn and understand, the greater your growth. This is not a quick fix book, but one to assist you in a lifelong journey of self-discovery. It is difficult to understand what another person really thinks or feels, because it is dangerous to your career, your relationships, and even your existence. You can learn to know who you really are. As you travel you will find things about yourself you dislike and like. The more honest you are the more you will like yourself and amazingly enough, like and be liked more easily by others. By using the metaphors of Giant and diminished self, you have a means to constantly evaluate what you are experiencing. As you do this you are getting more in tune with what you're thinking and feeling. Most people are not congruent, that is, what they think and what they feel are not in synch. In psychology when this happens it is called inappropriate affect. The face you show does not reflect what you feel or think. Yet, in many situations you cannot (because the repercussions are too great) express or even show what you're thinking and feeling so what you say does not reflect your internal experience. As the years pass you move further away from congruency and often can no longer even recognize what you are feeling and thinking. You believe that what you're "supposed" to feel or think in that setting is what you're actually feeling and thinking. I will try to help you discover who you are or could have become or still could become. In metaphor it is creating your GIANT SELF, which is the realization of your inherent potentials plus hard work! This self is a marked contrast to your diminished self. This self is the brainwashed, depressed, frightened, rigid self that those with greater power have made you believe is who you are. Without even knowing you I can say that you can become a person who can look yourself in the mirror and honestly like who you see. It means opening up to ideas and concepts that may be confusing, unnerving, and may mean that your world as you know it now will never be the same. Many of the ideas seem to be so simple and logical that you will say, "I knew that!" You may know it, but have you had the courage to apply it? I think one reason Dr. Wilson believes in this book is that I send an honest searchlight into my mind, body, and soul. Some of the things I discovered I did not like - still do not like. However, I found that by challenging EVERYTHING I believed I was able to free myself from many of the errors of my past. Besides my dark sides, I found a rather decent, intelligent person who was worthy of being loved and appreciated. One thing I had to admit and face was the number and constancy of errors I made on a regular basis. Humans are error-making machines. There are so many things that cause us to make mistakes that each of us could talk for hours about the stupid things we've done. How many times have you pulled instead of pushed even though the sign on the door was very clear? I know I have. I shake my head and laugh - most of the time. Other times my inattention or stupidity creates errors of judgement that could have caused a serious accident. I misjudge how far away a car is before I shoot out into the intersection. Or, I'm in a rush and I take a chance knowing full well that I'm acting like a fool. Take our senses. Each information bit that stimulates one of our sensory nerves is affected by our attention toward it, its magnitude, its intensity, its uniqueness, and the number and sensitivity of the nerve endings that receive it. It then travels through that sensory system with countless chances for the message to be garbled or misinterpre

Self help for Trauma Therapists Book Excerpt:

For those offering trauma-informed care, it can be difficult to maintain wellbeing and a balanced, positive outlook when the nature of their job requires frequent engagement with traumatic disclosures. Self-help for Trauma Therapists: A Practitioner’s Guide intends to assist human service workers- such as those working as therapists, social workers and counsellors- to maintain their self- care and professional effectiveness when working in fields where stress and trauma play a key factor in their everyday working lives. Adopting a comprehensive, multi-layered approach to self-care based, the book grounds its exploration of practice through researched accounts with experience professionals. Including accounts from clinical psychologists, therapists, counsellors, social workers and the friends and family of people in these professions, this book creates a narrative on stress and trauma from the human service worker perspective. Interwoven with these stories of practice, the author includes reflections on her own experiences in practice over the past 25 years with trauma survivors. With discussions on risk and resilience, compassion fatigue and vicarious traumatisation, readers are introduced to the theories and practical applications of developing a professional model for maintaining wellbeing and self-care in their work. Self-help for Trauma Therapists: A Practitioner’s Guide is the first book of its kind to be written solely for human service workers. It is essential reading for beginning and more advanced practitioners who are involved in working with trauma and recovery and will also be of interest to supporters of those working in the helping professions.
