From Library Journal
It has been estimated that five percent of older people suffer from severe intellectual impairment. So these two eloquent and readable guides will be much in demand as the number of families facing the challenge of caring for a relative with some form of dementing illness continues to grow.

The Oxford Practice Skills Course
R. A. Hope
0192627546
Apr 1996
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Ethics, communication skills, and the law ('practice skills') are important in all aspects of modern health care. Doctors and nurses must be sensitive to the ethical aspects of their work and understand the legal framework within which clinical decisions are made. Well developed skills of
communication, with patients, their relatives and other members of the clinical team, are a key feature of good clinical practice

Until recently, the important of practice skills has been relatively neglected in health care education. This situation is changing. The UK General Medical Council, for example, has recently identified three aspects as part of the core of the medical course, and the move to degree courses in
nursing has led to an increasing focus of practice skills in nurse education.

Driven to Distraction: Recognizing and Coping with Attention Deficit Disorder from Childhood Through Adulthood
Edward M. Hallowell
0684801280
January 1994
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
This clear and valuable book dispels a variety of myths about attention deficit disorder (ADD). Since both authors have ADD themselves, and both are successful medical professionals, perhaps there's no surprise that the two myths they attack most persistently are: (a) that ADD is an issue only for children; and (b) that ADD corresponds simply to limited intelligence or limited self-discipline. "The word disorder puts the syndrome entirely in the domain of pathology, where it should not entirely be. Although ADD can generate a host of problems, there are also advantages to having it, advantages that this book will stress, such as high energy, intuitiveness, creativity, and enthusiasm, and they are completely overlooked by the 'disorder' model." The authors go on to cite Mozart and Einstein as examples of...


Youth on Trial
Thomas Grisso
0226309126
Aug 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
It is often said that a teen "old enough to do the crime is old enough to do the time," but are teens really mature and capable enough to participate fully and fairly in adult criminal court? In this book--the fruit of the MacArthur Foundation Network on Adolescent Development and Juvenile Justice--a wide range of leaders in developmental psychology and law combine their expertise to investigate the current limitations of our youth policy. The first part of the book establishes a developmental perspective on juvenile justice; the second and third parts then apply this perspective to issues of adolescents' capacities as trial defendants and questions of legal culpability. Underlying the entire work is the assumption that an enlightened juvenile justice system cannot ignore the developmental psychological realities of...


Ethical, Legal, and Professional Issues in the Practice of Marriage and Family Therapy
Charles H. Huber
0137692331
November 2000
Textbook Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This book offers a wealth of up-to-date coverage geared to the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy standards. With its practical focus and planned, concise coverage, the book ensures readers gain both a theoretical background and an applications orientation. An entire chapter is devoted to exploring contemporary ethical issues for which no formal precedent has yet been established. In addition, there are numerous case studies, and discussions of the differences between MFT as a distinct profession and MFT as a professional subspecialty. In each of the three major sections, chapters address “general” issues, as well as issues specific to marriage and family therapy. A concluding chapter in each section offers case illustrations that expand upon the material covered in the previous chapter....


Handbook of Couple and Family Forensics
Florence W. Kaslow
0471191299
Jan 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Review
"The trouble is that the range of legal issues that influence family life is broad and growing. To stay abreast of all that needs knowing, one would need to consult a host of attorneys just to find another host of attorneys who knew what they were talking about. A comprehensive forensics resource is needed, and this book fills the bill nicely. It belongs on the bookshelf of every MFT who is not also a practicing family law attorney with 50 years of experience!" (Gregory Brock, Ph.D. University of Kentucky -In the 10/01 Journal of Marital and Family Therapy)

Book Description
Many families turn to mental health professionals for advice and counseling on how to cope with the stresses of legal crises. The first and only book of its kind, this handbook provides mental health...


Tales from the Bed: On Living, Dying, and Having It All
Jenifer Estess
0743476824
May 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
By the time 40-year-old Jenifer Estess died of ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) last December, she and her sisters had founded an organization-Project A.L.S.-to find a cure for this fatal neuromuscular disease. This fast-paced, witty book, written with one of her sisters, is both a memoir of Jenifer's six-year struggle with the disease and a chronicle of Project A.L.S.'s birth and work. Unfortunately, the beauty of the writing and the story is compromised by a too-casual structure; even simple chapter titles could have remedied the book's scattered feeling. This haze appears elsewhere, too: for instance, after deciding to found Project A.L.S, the sisters recruited theater colleagues, including Ben Stiller, to help, but they don't explain how Jenifer had made those contacts in the first place (the necessary details of...


Death Is That Man Taking Names
Robert A. Burt
0520243242
Sept 2004
Paperback
·
 
From the New England Journal of Medicine, March 6, 2003
Robert Burt has written a provocative and disturbing book that should be read by all professionals involved in end-of-life care. He suggests that dying patients, their families, and their physicians are "all vulnerable to unruly psychological forces unleashed by the imminent prospect of death" and that self-determination by patients is an inadequate safeguard against the many surrounding "forces of evil." He uses the legal and clinical examples of physician-assisted suicide, abortion, and capital punishment to illustrate his thesis. Although I disagree with some of his conclusions and examples, the central themes deserve serious consideration. His first theme is that all persons facing end-of-life decisions are inherently ambivalent, with mixed emotions and motivations....

From Publishers Weekly
Among the troubling aspects of new reproductive technologies is the takeover of reproduction by the marketplace. This probing study accepts the free market process while casting a discerning and skeptical eye at its pitfalls. Harvard business prof Spar (The Cooperative Edge: The Internal Politics of International Cartels) explores many aspects of the high-tech commodification of procreation: the fabulous revenues commercial fertility clinics earn from couples' desperate desire for children and the ensuing conflicts between medical ethics and the profit motive; the premiums paid for sperm and eggs from genetically desirable donors; the possible exploitation of poor, nonwhite and Third World surrogate mothers paid to gestate the spawn of wealthy Westerners; the fine line between modern adoption practices and...
