Clinical Neurotherapy Book Excerpt:

One of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide is brain injury. Most cases are mild, and the prevalence of disability and its impact are not well known. In the last 20 years neuroimaging technologies have changed the way we approach traumatic brain injury (TBI), especially mild injury (MTBI), and its sequelae. New treatment tools have been emerging in parallel with diagnostic technologies. Here, these noninvasive tools will be reviewed, especially those with therapeutic value that have a direct impact on brain function, either passively (operant conditioning, neurofeedback) or actively (transcranial electromagnetic stimulation). The main focus will be on EEG as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool for MTBI.

Technical Foundations of Neurofeedback Book Excerpt:

Technical Foundations of Neurofeedback provides, for the first time, an authoritative and complete account of the scientific and technical basis of EEG biofeedback. Beginning with the physiological origins of EEG rhythms, Collura describes the basis of measuring brain activity from the scalp and how brain rhythms reflect key brain regulatory processes. He then develops the theory as well as the practice of measuring, processing, and feeding back brain activity information for biofeedback training. Combining both a "top down" and a "bottom up" approach, Collura describes the core scientific principles, as well as current clinical experience and practical aspects of neurofeedback assessment and treatment therapy. Whether the reader has a technical need to understand neurofeedback, is a current or future neurofeedback practitioner, or only wants to understand the scientific basis of this important new field, this concise and authoritative book will be a key source of information. .

Innovations in the Treatment of Substance Addiction Book Excerpt:

Emerging approaches to treating addictions and minimizing relapse are spotlighted in this idea-packed volume, as alternatives or adjuncts to standard psychological and pharmacological therapies. Its biopsychosocial perspective delves into the causes and processes of chemical dependence, and the clinical characteristics it shares with other addictions (e.g., food, sex, gambling, online activities), to identify client needs that substance abuse may fulfill. Accordingly, the diverse modalities featured here address substance addiction on multiple levels, offering clients physical or mental stimulation and/or emotional relief as well as affording different degrees of autonomy. Methods can be mixed and matched to reinforce treatment goals, and clinicians can tailor treatment to individual issues and interests to assure clients nuanced and meaningful care. Included in the coverage: · Use of herbal medicine to treat drug addiction. · EMDR therapy and the treatment of substance abuse and addiction. · Evaluating the change processes in drug users’ interventions. · Web-based interventions for substance abuse. · Physical exercise and treatment of addiction. · Mindfulness to reduce the anxiety during the abstinence · Neurofeedback to deal with craving and anxiety symptoms Psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical social workers, and addiction counselors and educators will find Innovations in the Treatment of Substance Addiction a valuable sourcebook for understanding addiction—and intervention—in its wider context.

Integrative Psychiatry and Brain Health Book Excerpt:

Integrative Medicine is an emerging discipline that not only bridges the existing disciplines of psychiatry psychology, but provides a scientifically-based framework that synthesizes the rest of physiology, biochemistry and other health dimensions such as social support and spirituality, which collectively contribute to brain and body health and overall well-being. Patients who have not tolerated or not responded optimally to traditional treatments are also good candidates for integrative approaches. This new edition of Integrative Psychiatry and Brain Health reflects the tremendous advances in science that allude to mechanisms of action that weave together seemingly unrelated disciplines for the promotion of health and wellness. Part of the Weil Integrative Medicine Library, this volume provides a rational and evidence-based approach to the integrative therapy of mental disorders, integrating the principles of alternative and complementary therapies into the principles and practice of conventional psychiatry and psychology. Integrative Psychiatry and Brain Health examines what works and what doesn't, and offers practical guidelines for physicians to incorporate integrative medicine into their practice and to advise patients on reasonable and effective therapies. The text discusses areas of controversy and identifies areas of uncertainty where future research is needed. Chapters also cite the best available evidence for both the safety and the efficacy of all therapies discussed. The information is presented in accessible and easy-to-read formats, including clinical pearls and key points.

Imaging the Brain in Autism Book Excerpt:

Data compiled by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention indicates an alarming and continuing increase in the prevalence of autism. Despite intensive research during the last few decades, autism remains a behavioral defined syndrome wherein diagnostic criteria lack in construct validity. And, contrary to other conditions like diabetes and hypertension, there are no biomarkers for autism. However, new imaging methods are changing the way we think about autism, bringing us closer to a falsifiable definition for the condition, identifying affected individuals earlier in life, and recognizing different subtypes of autism. The imaging modalities discussed in this book emphasize the power of new technology to uncover important clues about the condition with the hope of developing effective interventions. Imaging the Brain in Autism was created to examine autism from a unique perspective that would emphasize results from different imaging technologies. These techniques show brain abnormalities in a significant percentage of patients, abnormalities that translate into aberrant functioning and significant clinical symptomatology. It is our hope that this newfound understanding will make the field work collaborative and provide a path that minimizes technical impediments.

Clinical Neurotherapy Book Excerpt:

Past and possible future trends and major developments in neurotherapy are reviewed and put into context. Neurotherapy has comprised several broad areas that can be divided into volitional and nonvolitional interventions. One common element of these approaches is the goal of altering (“modulating”) neuronal activity, in the pursuit of improved efficiency and effectiveness. A wide range of techniques has evolved that are generally used either sequentially or in combination. Integrated methods that incorporate multiple approaches are becoming increasingly important and clinically relevant. The future of neurotherapy will be influenced by a range of factors that will include scientific and clinical developments, economic realities and sociocultural influences. In addition, a unified approach with a cohesive theoretical underpinning has not yet been achieved. Progress in neurotherapy will require progress in all of these areas to secure its proper role in the fields of medicine, psychiatry, psychology and mental health. A singular purpose and a unified design approach can lead to improved levels of usability and efficacy.
