Description : There is now a substantial body of psychological knowledge, based on research and clinical experience, which supports and guides best practice in dealing with health- and illness-related behaviour. Peter Salmon offers a strong conceptual framework which unifies this knowledge within clinical contexts and problems. Based on the author's special interests in acute physical illness and surgery, this text shows how the beliefs, emotions and behaviour of individuals (both lay people and health professionals) can have a profound effect on the processes of understanding, communication and coping in the course of diagnosis and treatment. Peter Salmon, a senior figure in clinical health psychology, has extensive experience of training medical and health care professionals, and of dealing with patients and families. His book offers * A focus on acute illness and surgery, in contrast to the many other books which deal with chronic illness and health promotion * An introduction to psychological concepts and models, situated within the clinical reality of presentation, diagnosis, communication, treatment, and the patient-professional relationship * Guidance on evaluation of research and clinical practice which will help to inform a better understanding of behaviour and relationships in acute illness and surgery and wider medical contexts. Students and professionals in clinical health psychology, health care and medicine should read this book for an accessible, authoritative account of how psychological knowledge can help them, why people feel and behave as they do, and which medical situations can be enlightened and facilitated by the integration of psychological principles into therapeutic practice.

Description : Conrad’s life and fiction are often read through the lens of Freudian thought, though Conrad understood his own health from a pre-Freudian perspective. Joseph Conrad and Psychological Medicine recovers that perspective, revises our understanding of Conrad’s life, and rethinks the dominant themes of his work in light of pre-Freudian medical psychology. Beginning with a social history of late-nineteenth-century medical psychology and hysteria studies, Bock’s study presents a clear and readable synopsis of fin-de-siècle theories of nervous disorder and moral insanity, shows how Conrad’s doctors were trained in medical theories that privilege the physiological over the psychological, and describes what Conrad endured during his water cures at Champel-les-Bains and in an English culture that constructed nervous disease—particularly his diagnosed neurasthenia—as a feminine disorder. Joseph Conrad and Psychological Medicine reads Conrad’s fiction medically, showing how Conrad’s work focuses on such narrative strategies as Conrad’s rhetoric of hysteria and enervation and his vivid, nervous descriptions, and it shows how major tropes such as restraint, seclusion, and water— all treatments for insanity—were important issues in the medical discourse of Conrad’s day and are themes that run through Conrad’s fiction.Bock’s study also suggests that Conrad’s major breakdown of 1910 was an epiphany, an event Conrad feared for decades but that afterwards allowed him to shift the interests of his fiction. The post-breakdown fiction offers less brooding and more allegorized narrations of Conrad’s medical history as he moves towards a greater acceptance, late in his life, of his gender and sexuality.

Description : This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1885 edition. Excerpt: ... In this volume the author has aimed to give the results of his study of Medical Psychology as a thertpeutic agency, and the knowledge he has gained from many years' experience of the best methods of its application. He has not entered into a discusBion of all the phenomena of the psychic force, but only those laws of its action that render it so efficient in the cure of all forms of mental and bodily disease. It contains the best light he could obtain, from every accessible source, in relation to this primitive and apostolic mode of healiug the sick. The work is, in some degree, supplementary to the previous volume of the author on the mental aspect of disease and the psychological method of treatment. It contains information every one needs who has anything to do in the management and 3 care of the sick, and which will qualify every person of ordinary intelligence to be his own family physician. It goes forth into the world with the hope that it may contribute some influence towards reviving this divine method of healing the sick, now wholly abandoned by the principal religious and sectarian organizations of the Christian world. May an age of living faith and spiritual power succeed the present reign of materialism and religious impotency, so that the so-called miracles of history may be reproduced as the common facts of our own age. It is to be hoped that the world will again witness the spectacle of the doings of men and women who are endued with power from on high, or whose natural faculties and abilities are reinforced and augmented by an influence emanating from the Central Life and the omnipresent spiritual realm of existence, intelligence and causation. Then miracles will cease to be such, from their frequency, and lose

Description : This is Robert Fried's third book on the crucial role of breathing and hyperventilation in our emotional and physical health. The first, The Hyperventilation Syndrome (1987), was a scholarly monograph, and the second, The Breath Connection (1990a), was a popular version for the lay reader. This book combines the best features of both and extends Dr. Fried's seminal work to protocols for clinical psychophysiology and psy chiatry. Hoping to avoid misunderstanding, he has taken systematic care to introduce relevant electrical, physiological, and psychological concepts in operational language for the widest possible professional audience. Any clinician not thoroughly experienced in respiratory psycho physiology and biofeedback will leave these pages with profound new insight and direction into an aspect of our liveswhich we innocently take for granted as "common sense"-the role of breathing in health and illness. Einstein viewed such common sense as "that set of prejudices we acquired prior to the age of eighteen." I am impressed that Dr. Fried mirrors Einstein's uncanny genius in not accepting the obvious breathing is not "common sense" but, rather, is a pivotal psycho physiological mechanism underlying all aspects of life.

Description : While 40 percent of premature deaths in the United States can be attributed to such dangerous behaviors as smoking, overeating, inactivity, and drug or alcohol use, medical education has generally failed to address how these behaviors are influenced by social forces. This new textbook from Dr. Donald A. Barr was designed in response to the growing recognition that physicians need to understand the biosocial sciences behind human behavior in order to be effective practitioners. Introduction to Biosocial Medicine explains the determinants of human behavior and the overwhelming impact of behavior on health. Drawing on both recent and historical research, the book combines the study of the biology of humans with the social and psychological aspects of human behavior. Dr. Barr, a sociologist as well as physician, illustrates how the biology of neurons, the intricacies of the human mind, and the power of broad social forces all influence individual perceptions and responses. Addressing the enormous potential of interventions from medical and public health professionals to alter these patterns of human behavior over time, Introduction to Biosocial Medicine brings necessary depth and perspective to medical training and education.
