The Science of the Art of Psychotherapy (Hardcover): Allan N Schore The Science of the Art of Psychotherapy (Hardcover)
Allan N Schore
R827 Discovery Miles 8 270 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Focusing on the hottest topics in psychotherapy attachment, developmental neuroscience, trauma, the developing brain this book provides a window into the ideas of one of the best-known writers on these topics. Following Allan Schore s very successful books on affect regulation and dysregulation, also published by Norton, this is the third volume of the trilogy. It offers a representative collection of essential expansions and elaborations of regulation theory, all written since 2005.

As in the first two volumes of this series, each chapter represents a further development of the theory at a particular point in time, presented in chronological order. Some of the earlier chapters have been re-edited: those more recent contain a good deal of new material that has not been previously published.

The first part of the book, Affect Regulation Therapy and Clinical Neuropsychoanalysis, contains chapters on the art of the craft, offering interpersonal neurobiological models of the change mechanism in the treatment of all patients, but especially in patients with a history of early relational trauma. These chapters contain contributions on modern attachment theory and its focus on the essential nonverbal, unconscious affective mechanisms that lie beneath the words of the patient and therapist; on clinical neuropsychoanalytic models of working with relational trauma and pathological dissociation: and on the use of affect regulation therapy (ART) in the emotionally stressful, heightened affective moments of clinical enactments.

The chapters in the second part of the book on Developmental Affective Neuroscience and Developmental Neuropsychiatry address the science that underlies regulation theory s clinical models of development and psychopathogenesis. Although most mental health practitioners are actively involved in child, adolescent, and adult psychotherapeutic treatment, a major theme of the latter chapters is that the field now needs to more seriously attend to the problem of early intervention and prevention.

Praise for Allan N. Schore:

"Allan Schore reveals himself as a polymath, the depth and breadth of whose reading bringing together neurobiology, developmental neurochemistry, behavioral neurology, evolutionary biology, developmental psychoanalysis, and infant psychiatry is staggering." British Journal of Psychiatry

"Allan Schore's...work is leading to an integrated evidence-based dynamic theory of human development that will engender a rapproachement between psychiatry and neural sciences." American Journal of Psychiatry

"One cannot over-emphasize the significance of Schore's monumental creative labor...Oliver Sacks' work has made a great deal of difference to neurology, but Schore's is perhaps even more revolutionary and pivotal...His labors are Darwinian in scope and import." Contemporary Psychoanalysis

"Schore's model explicates in exemplary detail the precise mechanisms in which the infant brain might internalize and structuralize the affect-regulating functions of the mother, in circumscribed neural tissues, at specifiable points in it epigenetic history." Journal of the American Psychoanalytic

"Allan Schore has become a heroic figure among many psychotherapists for his massive reviews of neuroscience that center on the patient-therapist relationship." Daniel Goleman, author of Social Intelligence"

What is Psychotherapy? (Hardcover): The School of Life What is Psychotherapy? (Hardcover)
The School of Life 1
R243 R205 Discovery Miles 2 050 Save R38 (16%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Psychotherapy is one of the most valuable inventions of the last hundred years, with an exceptional power to raise our levels of emotional well-being, improve our relationships, redeem the atmosphere in our families and assist us in mining our professional potential. But it is also profoundly misunderstood and the subject of a host of unhelpful fantasies, hopes and suspicions. Its logic is rarely explained and its voice seldom heard with sufficient directness. This is a book that attempts to explain psychotherapy: what the needs are in all of us to which it caters; the methods by which it addresses these needs - and what the outcome of a therapeutic intervention could ideally be. The book reflects a fundamental belief of the School of Life that psychotherapy is the single greatest step any of us can take towards self-understanding and fulfilment. A course of therapy stands to render us ever so slightly less angry, self-defeating, unconfident, lost and sad. This is a guide to the purpose and meaning of psychotherapy.

This richly illustrated and comprehensive case-based atlas documents the MR findings observed in spondyloarthritis and offers guidance on selection of the appropriate imaging protocol, which is critical in detecting the potentially very subtle changes. The presented MR study protocols include T2-weighted sequences with fat saturation and contrast-enhanced T1-weighted sequences with fat saturation, these being sequences which permit better visualization of inflammatory changes of both anterior and posterior elements of the spine. Cases of spondylitis, discitis, osteoarthritis, and sacroiliitis are described, and concise information is provided on the clinical history of the rheumatic diseases. The inclusion of a large number of high-resolution images ensures that the atlas will serve as a guide to differentiation between potentially confounding diseases and an aid to early diagnosis, which has become essential with the advent of new treatments in the field of spondyloarthritis (TNF inhibitors). In addition to radiologists, neuroradiologists, rheumatologists, orthopedists, and physiatrists will greatly benefit from the contents of this volume and its thorough presentation of the rheumatic diseases.

Vitreous: In Health and Disease presents a comprehensive overview of the biochemical composition, molecular organization, morphologic structure, physiology, and metabolism of the vitreous body of the eye. The pathobiology of vitreous and vitreoretinal disorders is discussed within the context of derangements of normal biology and of a shared basic pathobiology. With emphasis on therapeutics, this book highlights not only the advances in vitreo-retinal surgery of today with text and video recordings of surgery, but also the non-surgical approaches of the future, namely pharmacologic vitreolysis. Vitreous: In Health and Disease examines such developmental and inherited disorders as dominant exudative vitreoretinopathy and Wagner's disease, connective tissue disorders, including Marfan's syndrome and Stickler syndrome, cellular invasion through trauma, inflammation, and neoplasia, and the effects of surgical intervention through vitrectomy, photocoagulation, cryopexy, and intravitreal injections. Clinicians will be able to use this text as a basic science reference manual and researchers will obtain a better understanding of the problems that confront clinicians, which should help them direct their research to the areas relevant to clinical problems that need development.
