The Thinking Skills Workbook Book Excerpt:

This new fourth edition is designed for use with adults who have suffered a stroke or other brain injury or who are affected by the aging process. While the fundamental format covering such skills areas as visual scanning, reading, observing, information acquisition, listening, memory, and abstract reasoning has remained the same, each of the individual training sections has been revised and updated with additional exercises and teacher suggestions for the teacher-learner team. More training exercises have been added, and the authors address how to use some of the new technology now readily available to enhance the rehabilitation process. The authors focus on the importance of personal choice, responsibility, health, and wellness in successful recovery. The book is designed to be most beneficial when the teacher and learner interact on a one-to-one basis, so that individual needs can be incorporated effectively into the training sessions. Additionally, the exercises encourage the use of basic learning principles such as immediate feedback and positive reinforcement while gradually increasing the difficulty level of the exercises. For each of the training sections, specific suggestions are offered to assist the teacher in finding additional exercises and activities that are personally relevant to the learner. The Thinking Skills Workbook will be a valuable tool for facilitating the recovery of cognitive skills and is written for easy use by professional rehabilitation staff, paraprofessionals, and/or family members. The incorporation of these effective learning strategies, along with the many revisions, will make the book very useful and provide for a rewarding experience for both teacher and learner.

A Guide to Mental Health Issues in Girls and Young Women on the Autism Spectrum Book Excerpt:

This book addresses the specific mental health needs of girls and young women with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Looking at the ways autism presents differently in girls than in boys, and the mental health conditions that occur most frequently in girls with ASD, this is the essential guide for clinicians and educators on tailoring interventions and support to meet girls' needs. Describing the current assessment process for autism diagnosis, the book explains why girls are under- or mis-diagnosed, leading to later mental health issues. It outlines the types of intervention that are particularly helpful for working with girls to reduce anxiety, improve social interaction skills, and manage self-harm. The book also covers how to manage eating disorders and feeding difficulties, focusing on working with girls with sensory processing difficulties. There is advice on how to deal with the emotional impact on parents, carers and families, and the challenges they face when negotiating appropriate psychological and educational support.

The Complete Guide to Self Management of Depression Book Excerpt:

Depression is a complex illness that presents in a myriad of ways and affects more than 350 million people worldwide. While medications and conventional cognitive-behavioral approaches to the treatment of depression have success, for many people these kinds of one-size-fits-all treatments are not enough to alleviate the symptoms of depression or help them find a long-term path toward wellness. In The Complete Guide to Self-Management of Depression: Practical and Proven Methods, Dr. Harpreet S. Duggal offers several evidence-based treatments for depression and presents them in a practical, easy-to-use format that can be incorporated into day-to-day self-management of depression. Self-management is increasingly becoming the standard of care in people with long-standing medical conditions, and it broadens the narrow perspective of self-help beyond the traditional treatment of symptoms to include behavioral methods, positive psychology interventions, mindfulness, and complementary and alternative medicine approaches for treating depression. Finally, besides a focus on treating symptoms, it also addresses lifestyle changes, social relationships, communication, problem-solving, and elements of wellness and recovery. In contrast to the traditional one-size-fits-all approach of self-help books on depression, The Complete Guide to Self-Management of Depression offers a menu of options for self-management of depression and provides guidance on whenand when notto use or combine particular strategies. Placing those who suffer from depression in the drivers seat of self-management can help them build confidence and prepare for the journey of managing depression.
