Description : Dr. Lake has made a significant contribution to integrative medicine in this book by helping to weave the integral tapestry around the complex issues of mental illness. In honor of his efforts to restore healing and meaning to mental healthcare, I bow deeply. --From the foreword by Larry Dossey, MD Dr. James Lake once again illumines the path to future medicine in this comprehensive, carefully researched, and intellectually engaging exploration of clinical integration of complementary and conventional therapies in mental health care. In a rigorous, dispassionate analysis he both reveals the outer frontiers of medical possibility and describes the professional boundaries necessary to reach such frontiers in ways that are clinically responsible as well as ethically unassailable. --Michael H. Cohen, JD, MBA, Assistant Clinical Professor, Department of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, and Assistant Professor, Department of Health Policy and Management, Harvard School of Public HealthDr. Lake has written the defining textbook for evidence-based integrative mental health care. He has comprehensively evaluated the research support for both conventional and natural therapies and redefined how we understand and treat mental health patients. His careful flow charts help guide the clinician through the challenge of assessment and differentiation to personalize therapies based on each patient's unique needs. Clinicians will also find of immense value his many tables, which summarize the evidence base for each intervention. This is a tour-de-force that forever redefines mental health care. --Joseph Pizzorno, ND, Founding President, Bastyr University This text offers an evidence-based approach to incorporating integrative psychiatry into practice that is pragmatic and useful, a great addition to the field of integrative medicine. --Roberta Lee, MD, Medical Director, Continuum Center for Health and HealingDr. Lake must be congratulated for this ground-breaking work on CAM in psychiatry. It not only provides a conceptual framework for a deeper understanding of disease of the mind-body-spirit, but also gives evidence-based blueprints for where we are and where we could go. A must read for mental health professionals interested in the philosophy and practice of integrative psychiatry. --Richard P. Brown, MD, Associate Professor, Department of Clinical Psychiatry, Columbia College of Physicians and SurgeonsThis text is comprehensive and authoritative, well written and widely referenced. It will, I hope, enlarge the way we think about mental health and treat psychiatric disorders. --James S. Gordon, MD, Founder and Director of the Center for Mind-Body Medicine This book provides a comprehensive review of integrative approaches in mental health. Here the practitioner will find clear guidance in an evidence-based manner. A wonderful contribution. --Wayne B. Jonas, MD, Director Samueli Institute for Information BiologyThis book is a tour de force in the emerging field of integrative psychiatry. The author presents the material in each chapter in a systematic, thoughtful, thorough, and practical manner. The text itself is integrative in the way it discusses management issues that a provider may encounter. As the number of patients who already include - or wish to add - alternative methods in their overall treatment plan continues to grow, this text provides an important comprehensive resource for busy providers. Health care professionals from many different disciplines who need a serious reference text on integrative psychiatry and who wish to optimize options for their patients with chronic psychiatric disorders will find this book indispensable. --Iris R. Bell, MD, PhD, Professor, Departments of Family and Community Medicine, Psychiatry, Psychology, Medicine, and Public Health, The University of Ariz

Description : Making sense of complementary and alternative treatments in mental health care. In mental health care, as in medical care, more and more clinicians are turning to unconventional assessment and treatment approaches to evaluate and treat their patients in the most effective way possible. But how is a clinician to makes sense of the range of complementary and alternative treatments (CAM), and when is it appropriate and safe to use conventional therapies alongside them? In this practical resource, Dr. Lake, a pioneer in the field of integrative mental healthcare, teaches readers how to integrate conventional mental healthcare—drugs and psychotherapy—with complementary and alternative approaches, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids and other natural products, mind-body practices, light therapy, music, biofeedback, energy therapies, acupuncture, and others. This is a concise, evidence-based guide to the day-to-day management of common mental health problems using an integrative approach.

Description : As the population ages, increasing numbers of older people require the attention and services of mental health professionals. Despite their prevalence, however, mental health problems in this population often go undiagnosed and therefore untreated. This textbook offers medical students and professionals the information they need to care for older people with mental disorders. Drs. Donna Cohen and Carl Eisdorfer, two internationally recognized experts in geriatric mental health, provide a comprehensive framework within which students and practitioners alike can address the salient issues of the field. These include the biopsychosocial aging processes, specific pathologies prevalent in later life, social issues common to the elderly, the delivery of care in various settings, and the economic policies affecting services for older people. The authors' goal is not only to enhance clinical practice but also to urge physicians to develop and coordinate a more holistic care strategy that acknowledges the complex challenges of older patients. To this end, Cohen and Eisdorfer discuss essential principles of optimal care, the latest research findings, evidence- and consensus-based practice standards, resources to help professionals keep abreast of the changing mental health landscape, and ethical dilemmas of clinical practice and research. The signal strength of this book lies in its integrated approach, an approach that emphasizes the philosophy and principles of caring for older people along with clinical practices and issues. From this broader perspective, the authors describe the many factors that influence the lives, health, and well-being of older patients and their caregivers, making this an ideal text for psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, and social workers.

Description : This text outlines for the first time a structured articulation of an emerging Islamic orientation to psychotherapy, a framework presented and known as Traditional Islamically Integrated Psychotherapy (TIIP). TIIP is an integrative model of mental health care that is grounded in the core principles of Islam while drawing upon empirical truths in psychology. The book introduces the basic foundations of TIIP, then delves into the writings of early Islamic scholars to provide a richer understanding of the Islamic intellectual heritage as it pertains to human psychology and mental health. Beyond theory, the book provides readers with practical interventional skills illustrated with case studies as well as techniques drawn inherently from the Islamic tradition. A methodology of case formulation is provided that allows for effective treatment planning and translation into therapeutic application. Throughout its chapters, the book situates TIIP within an Islamic epistemological and ontological framework, providing a discussion of the nature and composition of the human psyche, its drives, health, pathology, mechanisms of psychological change, and principles of healing. Mental health practitioners who treat Muslim patients, Muslim clinicians, students of the behavioral sciences and related disciplines, and anyone with an interest in spiritually oriented psychotherapies will greatly benefit from this illustrative and practical text.

Description : Textbook of Homosexuality and Mental Health brings together in one volume the entire range of material and variety of perspectives concerning homosexuality and mental health. With more than 50 chapters written by leaders in the field, this book is the most complete review of the topics of homosexuality and mental health and treatment of gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, and transsexuals to date. Starting from the belief that homosexuality is a normal variation of human sexuality and not a mental illness, this revolutionary book presents current information on homosexuality from a mental health and medical perspective. Sections focus on demographic, cultural, genetic, biological, and psychological perspectives; development throughout the life cycle; relationships and families; psychotherapy; multicultural identities and communities; professional education; and medical care. A variety of special issues, such as sexuality, substance abuse, violence, suicide, religion, and HIV/AIDS, are discussed. Also included are several unique chapters that cover topics not readily available elsewhere, among them transsexuality; minority gay, lesbian, and bisexual people; the impact of the sexual orientation of the therapist; latency development in prehomosexual boys; and clinical issues specific to psychotherapy with gay, lesbian, and bisexual patients. The clinical and theoretical richness contained in this volume makes it an accessible and invaluable reference for clinicians and the general public alike. Chapters complement each other, while providing enough information to be useful if read on their own.

Description : With decreases in lengths of hospital stay and increases in alternatives to inpatient treatments, the field of hospital psychiatry has changed dramatically over the past 20 years. As the first comprehensive guide to be published in more than a decade, the Textbook of Hospital Psychiatry is a compilation of the latest trends, issues, and developments in the field. The textbook, written by 70 national experts and clinical specialists, covers a wide range of clinical and administrative topics that are central to today's practice of hospital psychiatry. This is the only textbook on the market today that provides information for psychiatric hospital clinicians and administrators in a single all-inclusive volume. It covers information not generally available in other textbooks and medical journals, touching on a variety of cutting-edge issues, such as safety improvement, use of seclusion and restraint, suicide prevention, and culturally competent psychiatric care. The book's 35 chapters are divided into four parts: Part I, Inpatient Practice -- focuses on specialty psychiatric units (e.g., acute stabilization unit, eating disorders unit, forensic unit, child unit), including the many psychopharmacological and psychosocial treatments used within each. This section also touches on specialized treatment for patients with co-occurring problems, such as substance abuse, developmental disabilities, and legal difficulties. Part II, Special Clinical Issues -- covers clinical issues from the perspective of different populations (consumers, families, suicidal patients). This section also examines the recent trend toward patient-centered care.
