Description : Assessment and Therapy is a derivative volume of articles pulled from the award-winning Encyclopedia of Mental Health, presenting a comprehensive overview of assessing and treating the many disorders afflicting mental health patients, including alcohol problems, Alzheimer's disease, depression, epilepsy, gambling, obsessive-compulsive disorder, phobias, and suicide. According to 1990 estimates, mental disorders represent five of the ten leading causes of disability. Among "developed" nations, including the United States, major depression is the leading cause of disability. Also near the top of these rankings are bipolar depression, alcohol dependence, schizophrenia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. In addition, mental disorders are tragic contributors to mortality, with suicide perennially representing one of the leading preventable causes of death worldwide. Assessment and Therapy describes the impact of mental health on the individual and society and illustrates the factors that aid positive mental health. Twenty-six peer-reviewed articles written by more than 40 expert authors include essential material on assessing and treating schizophrenia, manic-depressive illness, major depression, anxiety disorders, and other mental illnesses. Professionals and libraries will find this timely work indispensable.

Description : These volumes make new contributions to the history of psychiatry and society in three ways: First, they propose a theory of values and ideology influencing the evolution of psychiatry and society in recurring cycles, and survey the history of psychiatry in recent centuries in light of this theory. Second, they review the waxing, prominence, and waning of Community Mental Health as an example of a segment of this cyclical history of psychiatry. Third, they provide the first biography of Erich Lindemann, one of the founders of social and community psychiatry, and explore the interaction of the prominent contributor with the historical environment and the influence this has on both. We return to the issue of values and ideologies as influences on psychiatry, whether or not it is accepted as professionally proper. This is intended to stimulate self-reflection and the acceptance of the values sources of ideology, their effect on professional practice, and the effect of values-based ideology on the community in which psychiatry practices. The books will be of interest to psychiatric teachers and practitioners, health planners, and socially responsible citizens.

Description : Managing life with a disability is tough for a child, the parents, siblings, and for the child’s teacher and classmates. Every person, disabled or not, wants to be happy, loved, and respected. They want to be accepted. Parents also desire these same things for their child. But, often, society doesn’t accept people with disabilities. In Give Me a Chance, author Janis Gilbert offers insight into the world of the disabled. Based on her professional experiences as a special education teacher and a mother of two sons with life challenges, she shares what she’s learned. This guide: gives an overview of disabilities, defining what they are, how they’re acquired, and provides statistics about disabilities in the United States; looks at well-known people with various disabilities and how disabilities have been portrayed in popular culture through movies; covers the history of the treatment of people with disabilities and how it’s changed throughout the years; examines diagnosis and treatment of disabilities and challenges associated with this work, including shortages of resources; gives insight into aspects of life for people with disabilities including family and social relationships, education, employment, transportation, housing, and others; and discusses caregiving, advocacy, community support services through governmental and nonprofit agencies, and planning for the time when parental caregivers are gone. Give Me a Chance provides an understanding of disabilities and the complex issues people with disabilities and their caregivers face every day and suggests ways we can make a person’s life better and more fulfilling.
