Failure to acknowledge and treat these problems may cause difficulties for these children ranging from placement breakdowns to more serious mental health problems in later life. Developed with a number of professionals, the book aims to help those caring for and working with these vulnerable young people to: identify and understand the mental health problems and social issues that may exist for these children; be made aware of the importance of recognising mental health problems and therefore the importance of prevention; and improve understanding of current developments in child and adolescent mental health services, specifically jooint working between health and social services. Issues covered range from depression, sexual abuse, learning disabilities and conduct disorder to teenage pregnancies, parental mental illness, school exclusion and leaving care. These various mental health problems and social care issues are brought to life through a number of vignettes. The book offers questions regarding the issues are answered by experts and children's views on the problems they face when in care are conveyed in poems. Government's objectives and targets are set out from Quality Protects and National Priorities Guidance. Information is provided on the Mental Health Specific Grant Projects for the various issues as well as other regional initiatives.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Why read a book when the book can read to you? This book just doesn't explain in dry, unpronounceable language what having bipolar disease is, it takes you through the various labyrinthine dimensions of it through stories and poems, and back out the other side to peace and even contentment with the challenges the author has faced in her life, fought and won, with the victory of life over an inevitable permanent institutionalization, like her biological grandfather, or a premature death from the devastating effects of this illness. The purpose of this book is to bring hope to all who suffer mental illness and feel like there is no way out.

WHEN MAMA CAN'T KISS IT BETTER is the raw account of a true story that shocked the nation in 2010. Gertz was America's most hated mother when news of a decision to place her adopted child in another family broke in the media. Called out by many as an unfit mother and an evil woman who threw away her child, she was catapulted into the national and international media.  WHEN MAMA CAN'T KISS IT BETTER covers: * The adoption of their daughter Emily, early signs of trouble, their birthmother's suicide, the truth about her pregnancy and warnings about how to avoid what happened to the author and her family * Raw and honest details about her daughter's rages, suicide attempts, and hospitalizations * The turmoil that living with mental illness causes for everyone in the home and how it affects siblings and marriages * The difficulty in receiving support from physicians, educators, & clinicians * The author's increasing desperation to find answers and help as rages and impulsivity became safety issues * Being judged by doctors, schools, and outsiders as "the problem" while her daughter collected diagnosis after diagnosis * The painful decision to place her daughter in another family and how she came to accept that she had to do the unthinkable * Parents worldwide waging verbal attacks on her since if the fault belonged to Gertz alone, it couldn't happen to anyone else Note from the Author: I spent the better part of six years writing this book, which began as the only way I could cope with what was happening in our lives. I just couldn't believe the lack of resources there were when I reached out for them so vociferously and started documenting what was happening inside our family if not only to maintain my sanity. I am passionate about telling my story to help increase understanding of the enormous challenges parents of special needs children face in a culture that believes that motherly love and perseverance can cure all ills. For those on similar paths, the story of my journey to a sense of peace within the context of facing unrealized dreams, human limitations, broken hearts, and the unfair circumstances of life may help them find that same place of peace in the tough decisions within their own lives. I pray this book will bring attention to the need to better support parents and kids with mental illness and other invisible disabilities and I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to call attention to such pressing societal issues. Keywords: Parenting, Disabilities, FASD, Mothering, Mental Illness, RAD, Bipolar, Memoir, Special Needs, Fetal Alcohol, Syndrome

People with mental illness commonly describe the stigma and discrimination they face as being worse than their main condition. Discrimination can pervade every part of their daily life - their personal life, working life, sense of citizenship, their ability to maintain even a basic standard of living. Though things have certainly improved in the past 50 years, discrimination against the mentally ill is still a major problem throughout the world. It can manifest itself in subtle ways, such as the terminology used to describe the person or their illness, or in more obvious ways - by the way the mentally ill might be treated and deprived of basic human rights. Should we just accept such discrimination as deeply rooted and resistant to change, or is this something that we can collectively change if we understand and commit ourselves to tackling the problem? Shunned presents clearly for a wide readership information about the nature and severity of discrimination against people with mental illness and what can be done to reduce this. The book features many quotations from people with mental illness showing how this has affected their home, personal, social, and working life. After showing, both from personal accounts and from a thorough review of the literature, the nature of discrimination, the book sets out a clear manifesto for change. Written by a leading figure in mental health in a lively and accessible manner, the book presents a fascinating and humane portrayal of the problem of stigma and discrimination, and shows how we can work to reduce it.

Hvor ble det av sunn fornuft? Forfatter Siv E Harestad har jobbet som refleksolog siden 1993, bĺde privat og i bedrifter, undervist i faget, skrevet břker og holdt foredrag. At det var flere ting opp gjennom ĺrene som ikke ga mening, skulle det ta henne 42 ĺr ĺ komme til bunns i. Denne, hennes fjerde bok, tar opp mental helse og hvordan samfunnet blir angrepet. Angrepene er sĺ planlagte og velorganiserte at menneskesinnet ikke forstĺr at det er under massiv manipulering. De fleste fortsetter naivt ĺ tro at "det finnes jo noe godt i alle og at rettferdigheten vil seire. Mennesket ble fřdt med intuisjon, kreative evner, uante egenskaper og et ĺpent sinn. 4 % av befolkningen ble det ikke. Agendaen til de 4 % - ene er ĺ fĺ menneskene til ikke ĺ stole pĺ intuisjonen sin, ikke ĺ vćre kreative, ikke finne ut av egenskapene sine, og slutte ĺ tenke selv. I stedet for ĺ nyte livet, vćre levende, iverksette ideene, er vi mennesker blitt sĺ godt som handlingslammet. Ca 2 % av menneskene har vĺknet, de resterende 94 % ligger etter - lenge etter. Spřrsmĺlet er om de vil vĺkne i tide. . . Har du noen gang undret deg over hvorfor forhold skal vćre problematiske, oppdragelse skal vćre hardt arbeid, eller hvorfor karakteren din i matematikk skulle ha noe ĺ si for din yrkeskarriere? Har du undret deg over at noen individer ikke ser ut til ĺ ha noen skrupler? I fřrste del av boka fokuserer forfatteren pĺ psyken vĺr. Her vil du lćre om ulike ubalanser som kan fřre til mentale sykdommer. Du vil finne hypoteser om hjernebřlger og mentale sykdommer og at tilstanden til indre organer som tarmene, nyrene og genitalia kan vćre med ĺ gi Alzheimer. Del to handler om 'de andre' - de 4 %-ene og hvordan de herjer med hodene vĺre, sinnet vĺrt og hvordan de fĺr oss til ĺ tro at vi er verdilřse og leker med oss. Oppdag hvorfor vi lar dem slippe unna og hva som kan gjřres for ĺ tilgi, gi slipp, sĺ vi kan komme oss videre og vokse som mennesker. Innsikter som dette er simpelthen - Alkymi. What happened to common sense? Author Siv E Harestad has worked as a Body-reflexologist since 1993, both privately and with companies. She teaches the subject, writes books and lectures. During her 42 years several things have simply not made sense and she has worked hard getting to the bottom of them. This, her fourth book, tackles the subject of mental health and how society is being attacked. These attacks are so well planned and organized that the human mind is unable to understand that it's being manipulated big time. Naively, most continue to believe that there is 'good in everyone' and that 'justice will prevail'. Man was born with intuition, creativity, endless skills and an open mind. 4% of the population is not. These 4% of 'crazymakers' out there are determined to convince us not to rely on our intuition, not to be creative, not identify our talents and develop our skills, and stop thinking for ourselves. Instead of enjoying life, being alive and implementing the brilliant ideas we have, we humans have become virtually paralyzed. Approximately just 2% of people have awakened to this kind of thinking, while the remaining 94% is lagging behind - a long way behind. The question is: Will they wake up before it is too late? Part One focuses on mental health. Here you will learn about the kinds of imbalances that can lead to mental illness. You will find hypotheses about brain waves and mental illnesses, and that the state of inner organs, like the colon, kidneys and genitals can influence our propensity towards Alzheimers. Part Two is about 'the others' - that 4%. How they mess with our minds and our heads, make us believe we are not worthy and play games with us. Discover why it is that we let them get away with this and then move on learn how to forgive, let go, move and grow. Insights such as these are simply - alchemy.

Just Be Well Writers of the Round Table Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Millions of Americans suffer from chronic diseases-cancer, diabetes, depression, obesity, mental illness, and many more-and traditional medicine is failing to bring them back to health. Doctors write prescriptions to combat symptoms but, all too often, don't even try to solve the root cause of the condition. In Just Be Well, Dr. Tom Sult points the way toward a new path. He and a growing number of physicians practice functional medicine, a discipline that treats people, not diseases. Functional medicine doctors ask "Why do you have this illness?"-not "How can we stem the tide of symptoms?" They see that each of us is a marvelously interconnected system, and that when we understand what lies at the heart of a condition, we can work our way back to true wellness through changes in our lifestyle, attitude, and relationship with the world around us. Chapter by chapter, Dr. Sult takes you through the eight key physiological processes of the functional medicine matrix, weaving together accessible information, real-life patient stories, and actionable advice you can use to begin your own journey back to wellness. Whether you're suffering from a debilitating condition or just don't feel the vibrant health you used to, Dr. Sult's advice will benefit you. The stories he has to share aren't about miracle cures or instant results; they're about how people just like you have joined the functional medicine movement and discovered the power to just be well. PRAISE FOR JUST BE WELL "If I had a complex, chronic illness, I would want a guide like Dr. Sult. I trust his deep intelligence and intuition, and I love his sense of humor. And Dr. Sult calls it as he sees it. In Just Be Well, Dr. Sult takes what can seem complicated and onerous-articulating the underlying causes of disease and what to do about it-and turns it into an accessible, captivating, and hope-filled read, complete with patient stories and his own personal journey of discovery. This book will provide direction for patients who are spinning their wheels in the dominant medical paradigm. It will also inspire physicians mired in the limitations of the same medical paradigm eager for a more effective approach." Kara N. Fitzgerald, ND Integrative and Functional Medicine Co-author and editor, Case Studies in Integrative and Functional Medicine Contributing author, Textbook of Functional Medicine Contributing author, Laboratory Evaluations for Integrative and Functional Medicine "This book was so much fun to read! It reminded me of the pleasure I experienced when reading Rachel Remen's Kitchen Table Wisdom. Not only did I learn a tremendous amount, but like reading a novel, I enjoyed the experience of story. Tom Sult is a master storyteller. Dr. Sult's book shows us why the medical profession must switch from concern about what a patient has (the diagnosis) to why they have it. In acute illness and injury, the diagnosis and appropriate protocol for treatment is important. In chronic illness, Dr. Sult helps us understand why it is time to say goodbye to the diagnosis. Instead, we must begin to figure out why the person has this problem at this time and how it relates to other problems she or he has. What is the underlying biochemistry? What is this person's past and present environment? What are this person's stressors and mindset? This book is the best explanation of functional medicine that I have ever read, and if we hope to reverse the upward trend of chronic disease in America, this book has the answers. I highly recommend it." Bill Manahan, MD Past president, American Holistic Medical Association

Książki ogólne / naukowe

IntroductionThe present volume of Cracow Indological Studies contains articles addressing different issues pertaining to a broadly formulated subject Histoiy and Society as Described in Indian Literature and Art. Its first part (Cracow Indological Studies, vol. 14) was devoted to visual and performing arts, as obviously the interpretation of sculptures, paintings, objects of craft as well as film art cannot be neglected while searching for pieces of information providing a better insight into the ancient and modern histoiy of India. The articles presented in the second part use literary sources in order to examine diverse aspects of the past and present. Similarly to the first part, which contains in its subtitle the Sanskrit word drsya-‘what should be looked at’-and in this way brings together the varied phenomena which can be described by this term, starting from ancient Indian theatrical art and finishing with modem Indian cinematography, the present volume’s subtitle also refers to the indigenous Indian theory of literature, using the Sanskrit word sravya or ‘what should be listened to’, ‘what is worth listening to’. This term covers both poetry and prose compositions. The authors of this particular volume bring manifold literary works, among them also scientific treatises and scriptures, which ‘should be listened to’ to readers’ attention and analyse them in order to have a better understanding of Indian society and culture. The essentially plural identity of Indian literature is represented in this volume by the pan-Indian Sanskrit literary tradition, Hindi literary culture encompassing the North of India and the most important and ancient among the South Indian Dravidic literatures, namely Tamil writings. The specialists explore a great number of issues: the relations between writing, history and ideology, gender, class, changing sensibilities, discourse and language-to name only a few.The opening article by Tiziana Pontillo introduces the fascinating question of asceticism as a permanent life choice. The authoress quotes Raghuvamsa passages regarding renunciation as a praiseworthy act rather than an obvious course of life. She focuses on two relevant passages from the Buddhacarita: one of them presents Buddha’s father, whose lineage probably did not observe the brahmanic varna- srama system, however wishing that his son would go successively through prescribed stages of life and not renounce the world too early. Indeed, Asvaghosa’s work reflects the socio-religious conflict between the brahmanic inclusivistic theory of four ordered stages of life and the Buddhist encouragement to renounce the world (here the latter path is unusually called arsamarga). The article elaborates also on the term suksma dharma, interpreting it as an ‘uncertain common dharma path’, constituting the point of departure for both, the true Buddhist dharma and the brahmanic srauta reform.The next paper, “Political Metaphors in the Mahakavya. The Conceptual Metaphor THE STATE IS THE HUMAN BODY in Magha’s Sisupala- vadha”, authored by Anna Trynkowska, applies cognitive linguistics methods in order to study the metaphor. The selected stanzas concern politics, a subject which appears prominently in Sanskrit court poems, and the conceptual metaphor under discussion is “the state is the human body”. Trynkowska shows it in the relevant passages of Magha’s poem entitled Sisupalavadha. Perhaps it is not surprising that the majority of examples provided by Magha focus on the condition of the state and its stability. The fitness of the human body is mapped onto political stability and the power of functional elements of the state. Political enemies are conceptualized here in terms of diseases, causing an inappropriate condition of the human body. There are also stanzas naming these dangerous diseases, consumption being referred to most frequently. Trynkowska presents the set of mappings used in these metaphors, specifying the categories in the source domain (the human body, its structure and condition as well as the causes of an inappropriate condition of the body and their remedies) and the corresponding functional elements of the state in the target domain. The proposed method of analysis sheds more light on the structure of such stylistic devices and helps in a better understanding and noticing of their specific features.The epic poem which Tomasz Winiarski discusses is the famous Raghuvamsa by Kalidasa. The author has identified a very interesting passage in its sixteenth canto (verses 4-24), which presents a dying capital city in a very specific way. The main stress is on the role of the female characters in the description. Step by step Winiarski introduces the reader into the sophisticated technique implied by Kalidasa, namely the process of deconstructing/reconstructing the image of the city, a subtle play between reality and illusion, the past and present, light and darkness. The images stereotypical and characteristic of kavya literature are put into an unusual context and combined in unusual ways. As Winiarski points out, taking kavya works as the source of knowledge “may be deceptive if one wants to know what the physical reality and the form of a city was”, but “it is a valid and maybe the only source to answer the question of what it meant for Indians of that time. (...) the way urban life was rendered in stories and poetry was, and still is, a way to fully understand what the city was, how to be a part of it, and how to preserve its existence and meaning.”The following two papers deal with the Sanskrit historiography in South India.Rajendran Chettiarthodi examines the Musikavamsa, a poem written in the 11th century by Atula, as an example of sanskritization of regional history. Choosing Sanskrit as his medium and the mahakavya as a form of expression Atula made an attempt to enhance the prestige of his patron, king Srikantha of the Musika dynasty ruling over North Kerala (...)

"The Dog in the Sky" offers a view of the world that is skewed, vibrant and larger than life. Here, words turn into tiger-moths or laughing birds, the Minotaur finds his Ariadne and Pinochio's sister cuts loose from her strings. "The Dog in the Sky" is drunk on life, on love, on air thick with peach light, but also shows the flipside where you can't trust the earth beneath your feet. In her second collection, Helen Ivory takes you further into a world of illusions and transformations. Here are voices lost inside mental illness, divided and diverting selves, as well as sinister figures who control their madness and make things happen. She creates puppet shows in which larger-than-life forces pull the strings and write the scripts, drawing also from the darkly dramatic world of fairytale and myth. 'There is something subtle and unique about Helen Ivory's writing. You can see the shadows she moves among, the fabulists and fantasists, but there is a numbed, almost purely narrative quality to the voice which destabilises itself as it goes along. Her best poems are quite exquisite, not so much a matter of known poetic craft as of vision, instinct and frayed edgy experience playing it dead straight' - George Szirtes. 'Ivory's language, seemingly innocuous, sometimes almost deadpan, is in fact highly and instinctively wrought to contain the elusive resonance of her subject-matter...myth, madness, dislocation of self, shifting intent of narrator and her quixotic elemental world...They capture the imagination at full strength. Prepare, therefore, to be disturbed' - Sarah Law, "Stride".

In his landmark book, The Time Paradox , internationally known psychologist Philip Zimbardo showed that we can transform the way we think about our past, present, and future to attain greater success in work and in life. Now, in The Time Cure , Zimbardo has teamed with clinicians Richard and Rosemary Sword to reveal a groundbreaking approach that helps those living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to shift their time perspectives and move beyond the traumatic past toward a more positive future. Time Perspective Therapy switches the focus from past to present, from negative to positive, clearing the pathway for the best yet to come: the future. It helps PTSD sufferers pull their feet out of the quicksand of past traumas and step firmly on the solid ground of the present, allowing them to take a step forward into a brighter future. Rather than viewing PTSD as a mental illness the authors see it as a mental injury --a normal reaction to traumatic events--and offer those suffering from PTSD the healing balm of hope. The Time Cure lays out the step-by-step process of Time Perspective Therapy, which has proven effective for a wide range of individuals, from veterans to survivors of abuse, accidents, assault, and neglect. Rooted in psychological research, the book also includes a wealth of vivid and inspiring stories from real-life PTSD sufferers--effective for individuals seeking self-help, their loved ones, therapists and counselors, or anyone who wants to move forward to a brighter future.

Stop Caretaking the Borderline or Narcissist - 2826714114

Stop Caretaking the Borderline or Narcissist Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

People with Borderline or Narcissistic Personality Disorders have a serious mental illness that primarily affects their intimate, personal, and family relationships. Often they appear to be normally functioning at work and in public interactions, and Narcissists may even be highly effective, in the short term, in some work or social situations. However, in intimate relationships, they can be emotional, aggressive, demeaning, illogical, paranoid, accusing, and controlling-in the extreme. Their ability to function normally or pleasantly can suddenly change in an instant, like flipping a switch. These negative behaviors don't happen once in a while, they happen almost continuously in their intimate relationships and most often, and especially with their Caretaker family member. Here, Margalis Fjelstad describes how people get into a Caretaker role with a Borderline or Narcissist, and how they can get out. Caretakers give up their sense of self to become who and what the Borderline or Narcissist needs them to be. This compromises the Caretaker's self-esteem, distorts their thinking processes, and locks them into a Victim-Persecutor-Rescuer pattern with the Borderline or Narcissist. The book looks at the underlying rules and expectations in these relationships and shows Caretaker's how to move themselves out of these rigid interactions and into a healthier, more productive, and positive lifestyle-with or without the Borderline/Narcissistic partner or family member. It describes how to get out of destructive interactions with the Borderline or Narcissist and how to take new, more effective actions to focus on personal wants, needs, and life goals while allowing the Borderline or Narcissist to take care of themselves. It presents a realistic, yet compassionate, attitude toward the self-destructive nature of these relationships, and gives real life examples of how individuals have let go of their Caretaker behaviors with creative and effective solutions.

Among the Healers MERRELL PUBLISHERS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Every day, everywhere in the world, people deal with sickness (both physical and mental), and must choose ways to address the illnesses from which they suffer. Some will go to doctors, take medicine, have surgery. Others will do nothing. Still others try a combination of prayer and medical attention. And some communities rely on religious, spiritual, and ritual healing methods that employ various techniques to heal their loved ones. Here, a renowned anthropologist takes the reader on a tour of the myriad spiritual healing traditions from around the world. Lessons from communities in rural Ireland, Mexico, Brazil, Europe, Israel, Russia, Africa, and the U.S. will provide a road map for readers as they navigate through the many traditions, rituals, and sacred mysteries of healing. Eleven degrees south of the equator in Africa, members of a small, mud-hut village gathered around a little African shrine-just a forked pole-to heal a member of their community. Holy things were being done. Music played. The old medicine men sang, and everyone joined in. The crowd was intent on singing-out a harmful spirit from the body of a sick woman. Would the ritual work? Would the woman be healed? The stories and anecdotes found here will enlighten readers about alternative, non-medical approaches to healing a variety of illnesses through spirit and ritual. The stories, told from first-hand accounts in many cases, are fascinating and will move readers to a greater understanding of the role of religion and the spirit in the life of the body. Anyone facing an illness of any sort, or caring for a loved one, will find strength in these pages, and possibly new approaches that engage the mind, the spirit, and the body in the fight against sickness.

Medicine and the arts have in common a concern for all aspects of people's lives. This delightful anthology celebrates the many ways in which they interact. Robin Downie has mixed together a rich concoction of poems, stories, prose extracts, music, paintings, and drawings which illustrate the fundamental issues of birth, life, and death. From reviews of the hardback edition The best presents are often those you want to buy for yourself and part with only grudgingly. The Healing Arts falls headlong into this class. New Scientist This book is really much better than any anthology has a right to be...remarkably handsome: large format, good paper, spacious layouts, colour plates, and photographs...but the most striking aspect is the quality and variety of the selected items, and the way in which they flow and are mutually reinforcing.' Journal of the Royal College of Physicians of London ' a splendid anthology ...Downie's anthology is interesting, varied ...and fun to dip into.' The Lancet Here's some cultural diversion for anyone on the mend from the surgeon's knife or fighting illness, or indeed for the hypochondriac. Read Betjeman on nurses, Larkin on ambulances, and C S Lewis on grief. And more in the same vein.' Focus ...a delightful collection of poetry, essay, and musical score, punctuated by carefully selected drawings and paintings. It is undoubtedly a delightful gift for almost anyone in medicine, and a goodly number outside the profession. British Journal of Anaesthesia He has compiled a beautiful and inspiring collection of poems, drawings, paintings, cartoons, music and excerpts from books and journals to give pleasure, to heal and inform, and to "stretch the imagination, deepen the sympathy and enrich perspectives" ...It superbly fulfills Downie's goal of bringing pleasure, stretching the imagination, and deepening sympathy. I strongly recommend it to those of you who value the arts and have some association with the medical profession. The Medical Humanities Review This book is a gem which will have wide appeal...It breaks new ground in using art, prose and poetry to explore interactions between medicine and the arts.
