Effective Treatments for PTSD Third Edition Book Excerpt:

"Clinical practice guidelines, which synthesize research evidence to generate specific treatment recommendations for a particular disorder, have been of crucial importance over the last decade in promoting a shift toward evidence-based care. PTSD clinical practice guidelines, on which this book is based, are designed primarily to help clinicians achieve improved mental health outcomes for people affected by trauma and to assist those people and their families, as well as policymakers and service delivery organizations, to develop a more sophisticated understanding of the range of available treatments and the evidence for their efficacy. This book bridges the gap between evidence-based guidelines and routine practice in the real world. The treatment chapters are preceded by contextual chapters that outline recent developments in our understanding of the nature, epidemiology, and assessment of mental health responses to trauma exposure in adults, adolescents, and children, as well as the latest evidence on prevention. The book goes on to foreshadow future developments, tailoring treatment to the unique needs of the individual clinical presentation, dissemination challenges, and economic implications"--

Complementary and Alternative Medicine for PTSD Book Excerpt:

The number of individuals diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder has increased in the past decade, not only in the military and veteran population but within the civilian population as well. Traditional treatments such as pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy have provided less-than-ideal results proving to be less effective when used alone to treat the disorder. Complementary and Alternative Medicine for PTSD supplements these traditional treatments, using new and effective techniques to fill the therapeutic void. The alternative therapies covered include acceptance and commitment therapy, acupuncture, alternative pharmacology, canine assistive therapy, family focused interventions, internet and computer-based therapy, meditation techniques, mobile applications, recreational therapy, resilience training, transracial magnetic stimulation, virtual reality exposure therapy, and yoga. Each chapter delivers the most up-to-date understanding of neurobiology, best practices, and key points for clinicians and patients considering inclusion of these treatments in patient care. Drs. David Benedek and Gary Wynn offer insight into the future of complementary and alternative medicine, shining a light onto how these techniques fit into clinical practice to create the most beneficial treatments for the patient. This book is both an essential resource and practical guide to everyday clinical interactions. It is a necessary addition to the medical library for students and senior clinicians alike.

Mental Health Care in Paramedic Practice Book Excerpt:

Mental health conditions are becoming more prevalent in today’s society and it has been estimated that 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health issue at some point in their lives. The increase in mental health complaints has also affected the volume of calls to 999 in which paramedics are regularly called to address patients’ mental health concerns. The complexities and nuances within mental health means that many paramedics feel underprepared when managing patients who are experiencing mental distress. Mental Health Care in Paramedic Practice is the first guide written specifically for paramedics to support them in understanding a range of different mental health conditions which they may come across during their practice. Not only does the book provide key information on recognising and managing a range of conditions, but it also includes case studies written by paramedics with first-hand experience of managing mental health calls. It also includes a section on legislative changes and policy descriptions as well as interprofessional working. This book is essential for anyone wanting to better understand how to care for patients with mental health concerns within the prehospital setting, including both experienced and aspiring paramedics.

Ptsd Book Excerpt:

DescriptionThe book was written with a view to enlighten those with little or no experience of coming into contact with those unfortunate to be suffering with PTSD, or indeed those with PTSD wanting more information about their disorder. It was not meant to be a work that should be read from start to finish, but may be done so if the reader wishes. It was intended to be used as a pick up reference.Extracts of the author's life and own particular turmoil has been used to give clear and concise descriptions of some of the symptoms that go to make up PTSD. The book is not written from a medical view, nor is it a definitive article on PTSD (if such a work exists) but to put down in layman's terms, words and phrases that one may hear when dealing with PTSD, in order to help form a clearer understanding of the disorder.Certain examples of PTSD in given situations have been included to give an insight into what could be happening to the sufferer, without onlookers realising. There are obvious examples where onlookers cannot fail to notice that something is going on but not understand what. I have also included a glossary of terms in an aid to understand the jargon. About the AuthorNow in his fifties being born in 1957, a generation has passed since the traumatic events that ruined his life. Scott was a company director when he had his mental breakdown. Subsequent to that he had counselling by a Community Psychiatric Nurse and Scott's past was discussed in great depth. It transpired that the traumas Scott faced all those years ago, when serving in the armed forces, had a terrible effect on him, unknowingly. That awareness of events long forgotten caused his life to completely change. Eight years after having the events exposed, in counselling, Scott was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which relieved Scott from the madness his world had become, and highlighted his set of symptoms defining his PTSD.Divorced from his first wife who could not deal with Scott's behaviour, Scott lived several years on his own, until meeting his, now, wife Sarah, who has been inspirational in not only dealing with Scott's behaviour but understanding PTSD. John has four grown up children from his first marriage and has discussed his illness with all of them, in turn. They have all been understanding about the disorder and gone on, independently, to try and find out more about the illness. It was a result of their difficulty in finding U.K. based information that led Scott to write this book.
