Jan 1985
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
A neurologist who claims to be equally interested in disease and people, Sacks (Awakenings, etc.) explores neurological disorders with a novelist's skill and an appreciation of his patients as human beings. These cases, some of which have appeared in literary or medical publications, illustrate the tragedy of losing neurological facultiesmemory, powers of visualization, word-recognitionor the also-devastating fate of those suffering an excess of neurological functions causing such hyper states as chorea, tics, Tourette's syndrome and Parkinsonism. Still other patients experience organically based hallucinations, transports, visions, etc., usually deemed to be psychic in nature. The science of neurology, Sacks charges, stresses the abstract and computerized at the expense of judgment and emotional depthsin his...

Review

Emdr
Francine Shapiro
0465043011
Apr 1998
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
EMDR, or eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, is a new, nontraditional, very short-term therapy for treating trauma victims that utilizes rhythmical stimulation such as eye movements or hand taps. Shapiro, a clinical psychologist and fellow at the Mental Research Institute in Palo Alto, Calif., who developed the approach, reports cases in which as few as three 90-minute EMDR sessions have relieved patients' disabling anxiety. Explaining how she developed the technique in 1987, Shapiro describes the treatment, theorizes about why it works and cites supporting research. She suggests that the rhythmical stimulation inherent in the process jump starts and accelerates the brain's information processing system to enable the victims to begin to process the traumatic experiences in which they have been stuck so...


Through the Glass Wall
Howard Buten
0553382322
Mar 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Buten, a part-time clown-mime and author of several novels, founded the Adam Shelton Center in Paris, which treats autistic children. While many autism specialists have degrees in psychiatry or do neurology research, Buten has a doctorate in clinical psychology in addition to years of training and experience in clowning and other performance arts. His approach to autism is eclectic, nondogmatic and practical: if it works, he does it. While the psychiatric establishment has had many theories for the causes of autism, Buten remains somewhat agnostic, focusing on treatment instead. First, the therapist must get the autistic person's attention by figuring out what, specifically, interests them. Utilizing his theatrical skills, Buten found that by closely imitating every gesture of an autistic patient, he could catch...


Science and Pseudoscience in Clinical Psychology
Steven Jay Lynn (Editor)
1593850700
July 2004
Textbook Paperback
·
 
Review
"As a text for students, this book effectively illustrates the importance of becoming an evidence-based practitioner. It inoculates aspiring clinicians against the bandwagon appeal of 'fashionable' interventions and the seductive claims of pseudoscientific treatment studies."--Allen Rubin, PhD, School of Social Work, The University of Texas at Austin

"This unique and timely book may avert the advent of the Dark Ages into which the discipline of psychotherapy seems to be heading. By clearly articulating the fundamental differences between 'science' and 'pseudoscience,' it forewarns that anecdotes are not evidence, and demonstrates how to separate fact from conjecture. I cannot think of anyone who would not benefit from a thorough perusal of its contents, but it is particularly essential reading for those conducting any...

"We have come a long way from 1972 when AMCD was initially chartered as the Association of Non-White Concerns in Personnel and Guidance. Derald Wing Sue and David Sue's new book, COUNSELING THE CULTURALLY DIVERSE, opens with a giant bull's-eye that very elegantly depicts the current conceptualization of multiculturals and diversity. This conceptualization is complex, with a focus on addressing multiple components and layers such as race, gender, sexual orientation, religious preference, culture, disability/ability, ethnicity, geographic location, age and even marital status." —Counseling Today (ACA publication), David Kaplan, President of ACA

"Mindfulness and Psychotherapy is the first comprehensive work that pulls the various strands of knowledge under the rubric of mindfulness together and it does so in a scholarly yet highly accessible fashion.

We are offered numerous hands-on techniques and resources for mindfulness training and for its integration into our therapeutic practice--be it cognitive-behavioral or psychodynamic.
