  1. Wrestling with Destiny

    Can psychoanalysis help people control their destinies?

    Using empirical evidence from neuroscience, Lucy Holmes makes a powerful argument that it can. This book considers the various ways in which destiny is linked to the repetition compulsion, and how free association in psychoanalysis can literally change the mind in ways that can help people reshape and take control of the future. Freud’s psychoanalysis is revealed here to be startlingly modern in its consonance with the latest findings in the study of the brain.

  3. Working With Families in Medical Settings

    "Families are our patients’ primary caregivers. Health professionals interact with them regularly, though oftentimes without training in how to do so. This eminently practical volume fills a gap in helping physicians and other health professionals understand how to successfully partner with families in the treatment of our patients. Family psychiatrist Alison Heru offers us practical approaches to family assessment and intervention that can be implemented in a range of mental health and medical contexts. We learn what family factors promote health, how families adapt to chronic illness, how to intervene in disruptive family situations and how to parent during chronic or life-threatening illness. This volume provides us with practical, useable tools to understand and involve families in the treatment of our patients." —Susan McDaniel, PhD, director, Institute for the Family, University of Rochester Medical Center

  6. Assessing Common Mental Health and Addiction Issues With Free-Access Instruments

    As healthcare costs rise, so too do the costs of assessment instruments, critical tools for mental health professionals. While some traditional assessment instruments have become prohibitively expensive, as with many other fields, the Internet offers a host of more affordable and equitable alternative assessment tools at little or no cost. The pitfall of this alternative, thus far, has been the lack of vetting and quality assessment. Assessing Common Mental Health and Addiction Issues With Free-Access Instruments fills this gap by providing the first analysis and assessment of these tools, provided by some of the leading names in mental health assessment instruments.
