Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment for Generalized Anxiety Disorder


Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment for Generalized Anxiety Disorder


$43.63


Medical understanding of the nature and treatment of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) has dramatically increased over the past 15 years. Recent studies have shown that GAD is a common disorder, with one-year and lifetime prevalence rates of approximately 1.6% and 5.1% respectively. Contrary to previously held assumptions, Gad leads to considerable distress and impairment, which translate into substantial personal, social, and financial costs. Research into the nature of GAD has provided a number of theoretically-driven and empirically-supported conceptualizations have spawned cognitive-behavioral treatments for GAD, a few of which have received empirical support in controlled clinical trials. The main objective of this book is to present a detailed analysis of the etiology, assessment, and treatment of GAD by focusing on the cognitive-behavioral model and treatment options for GAD. Following chapters would provide a review of the empirical support for the different models of GAD, a detailed description of the assessment and step-by-step treatment of GAD (including many examples of therapist-client dialogue), and data on treatment efficacy in individual and group therapy. The book would conclude with a description of maintenance and follow-up strategies. There are a disproportionately small number of treatment manuals for effective interventions for individuals with what newer evidence has shown to be an increasingly common and widespread disorder. This handbook would be a useful tool for clinical and counseling psychologists in treatment of GAD, and a welcome addition to our new series.

 Alive With Bipolar


Alive With Bipolar


$8


Description This is Lorraine’s second book with Chipmunka and picks up two years on from the end of her last book. She charts the changes in her life and the changes which she has positively sought in her attempts to live with bi-polar and to live a happy, fulfilling life. This book is honest and uplifting. About the Author Lorraine Blackburn is 35 years of age and has bi-polar disorder. She was wrongly diagnosed for 18 years with clinical depression. She has now overcome her condition and wants people to know that they are not alone. Book Extract It is now two years since I completed my first book, ‘There Will Always Be A Sunrise’, which, if you have read it, will give you more meaning to this journey. It is mind blowing how much has changed in the past year of my life: it has been a hurricane, pleasant and a calm on the outside, at times, and then at others, I’m stuck in the eye with chaos flying around inside me. My endeavour for this book is to share what has happened in my life because I feel it often helps others to know someone else has been through similar experiences and survived. More then anything I want to pass the fact across that I am still here and surviving and I am even experiencing really happy times and calmness of mind and that my body is resting. It’s all new really and I can vividly bring to mind the feelings of anxiety and depression. I really appreciate the days without them, although I still get times when their claws are snagged against my skin and squeezing my mind. I’m not going to enter into great detail here but my life has taken some extreme ups and downs, including another hospital admission in the private hospital, only for ten days this time, and a couple in the NHS hospital. I hope to delve deeper into my feelings this time as people have asked about this from my last book. I think it was harder last time, due to the length of time passed, the fact that my memories were heavily sedated ones and my feeling that I didn’t want to

 Containment in the Community


Containment in the Community


$29.95


The primary focus of this volume is to support practice by individuals and teams that deal directly either with individuals diagnosed with mental disorder or with those whose presentation causes the same dilemmas for practitioners. The book draws on experience gained across a wide spectrum of settings: within the NHS, the National Offender Management Services (NOMS) and the wider criminal justice services, as well as various services for children, young people and their families.The subject matter of this text covers antisocial, offending and challenging behaviours: in particular behaviours that create unusual levels of anxiety in practitioners or the public. Valuable insights are offered, with examples, into ways of thinking about these problems and practical guidance is offered on the way professional teams and the individuals within them can develop and maintain effective work. Whilst not explicitly focussed on those identified as having a personality disorder, the material concerns individuals with psychological difficulties that are pervasive, enduring and which have a particularly intrusive impact on caring staff members working with them.This book is a valuable contribution to service improvement and provides essential support for our ability to provide effective intervention and a more capable workforce to assist those with complex and often challenging needs.
