Problem Solving Therapy in the Clinical Practice (Hardcover, New): Mehmet Eskin Problem Solving Therapy in the Clinical Practice (Hardcover, New)
Mehmet Eskin
R1,383 Discovery Miles 13 830 Within 7 - 11 working days

Evidence based or empirically supported psychotherapies are becoming more and more important in the mental health fields as the users and financers of psychotherapies want to choose those methods whose effectiveness are empirically shown. Cognitive-behavioral psychotherapies are shown to have empirical support in the treatment of a wide range of psychological/psychiatric problems. As a cognitive-behavioral mode of action, Problem Solving Therapy has been shown to be an effective psychotherapy approach in the treatment and/or rehabilitation of persons with depression, anxiety, suicide, schizophrenia, personality disorders, marital problems, cancer, diabetes-mellitus etc.

Mental health problems cause personal suffering and constitue a burden to the national health systems. Scientific evidence show that effective problem solving skills are an important source of resiliency and individuals with psychological problems exhibit a deficiency in effective problem solving skills. Problem solving therapy approach to the treatment and/or rehabilitation of emotional problems assumes that teaching effective problem solving skills in a therapeutic relationship increases resiliency and alleviates psychological problems.The book, in the first chapters, gives information on problem solving and the role of problem-solving in the etiology and the treatment of different forms of mental health problems. In the later chapters, it concentrates on psychotherapy, assessment and procedures of problem solving therapy. At the end it provides a case study.

This book integrates theory, research & practiceand provides a comprehensive appreciation of problem solving therapy.Itcontains empirical evidence and applied focus for problem solving therapy which provides a scientific base and best practices.The bookalso highlights the problem solving difficulties of persons with specific disorders and provides a better understanding of the relevance of problem solving therapy to a broad range of emotional problems.

Telemental Health - Clinical, Technical, and Administrative Foundations for Evidence-Based Practice (Hardcover, New): Kathleen... Telemental Health - Clinical, Technical, and Administrative Foundations for Evidence-Based Practice (Hardcover, New)
Kathleen Myers, Carolyn Turvey
R1,606 Discovery Miles 16 060 Within 7 - 11 working days

Acquiring access to mental health treatments can be difficult for those who are not near mental health facilities. The growing field of telemental health addresses this problem by using video and telephone conferencing to provide patients with access to psychiatric professionals. However, the process faces challenges to gain adoption into mainstream medical practice and to develop an evidence base supporting its efficacy. In this comprehensive text, leading professionals in the field provide an introduction to telemental health and explore how to construct a therapeutic space in different contexts when conducting telemental health, how to improve access for special populations, and how to develop an evidence base and best practice in telemental health. In the past 15 years, implementation of telemental health has seemed to follow more from need than from demonstrated efficacy. The thorough and insightful chapters within this book show the importance of continued research and thoughtful development of ethical and responsible practice that is needed in the field and begin to lay out steps in constructing this process. Telemental Health will be an essential book for all clinical practitioners and researchers in mental health fields.

Information in this bookis focused on the clinical practice of telemental health, no other text is similarly oriented to clinical practice. Limited options for interested audience makes this text a top choice.The Editors are experienced in multiple aspects of e-health across diverse clinical settings, and the authors are national leaders who are most knowledgeable regarding developments in the field. Emphasis is on providing evidence-based care, and telemental health emerges as comparable to usual care, not a "second best" option; material is not esoteric but relevant to clinical practice. Readers will be able to readily find the equipment and other technology to establish their practice.

Education and cognitive psychology are natural companions-they both are focused on how people think and learn. Although collaborations have occurred for many years, recently there has been a much greater interest in collaborations that bring cognitive principles into classroom settings. This renewed collaborative research has led both to new evidence-based instructional practices and to a better understanding of cognitive principles. This volume contains overviews of research projects at the intersection of cognitive science and education. The prominent contributors-cognitive psychologists, developmental psychologists, educational psychologists, and science educators-were chosen both for the quality of their work and the variety of their contributions-general principles; influence of affect and motivation; and focus on math and science education.

James W. Grice
R2,192 Discovery Miles 21 920 Within 7 - 11 working days

This book introduces a new data analysis technique that addresses long standing criticisms of the current standard statistics. Observation Oriented Modelling presents the mathematics and techniques underlying the new method, discussing causality, modelling, and logical hypothesis testing. Examples of how to approach and interpret data using OOM are presented throughout the book, including analysis of several classic studies in psychology. These analyses are conducted using comprehensive software for the Windows operating system that has been written to accompany the book and will be provided free to book buyers on an accompanying website.

The software has a user-friendly interface, similar to SPSS and SAS, which are the two most commonly used software analysis packages, and the analysis options are flexible enough to replace numerous traditional techniques such as t-tests, ANOVA, correlation, multiple regression, mediation analysis, chi-square tests, factor analysis, and inter-rater reliability. The output and graphs generated by the software are also easy to interpret, and all effect sizes are presented in a common metric; namely, the number of observations correctly classified by the algorithm. The software is designed so that undergraduate students in psychology will have no difficulty learning how to use the software and interpreting the results of the analyses.

* Describes the problems that statistics are meant to answer, why popularly used statistics often fail to fully answer the question, and how OOM overcomes these obstacles * Chapters include examples of statistical analysis using OOM * Software for OOM comes free with the book * Accompanying websiteinclude svideo instruction on OOM use "

Language, cognition, and memory are traditionally studied together prior to a researcher specializing in any one area. They are studied together initially because much of the development of one can affect the development of the others. Most books available noweither tend to be extremely broad in the areas of all infant development including physical and social development, orspecialize in cognitive development, language acquisition, or memory. Rarely do you find all threetogether, despite the fact that they all relate to each other. This volume consists of focused articles from the authoritative "Encyclopedia of Infant and Early Childood Development," and specifically targetstheages 0-3. Providingsummary overviews of basic and cutting edge research, coverageincludes attention, assessment, bilingualism, categorization skills, critical periods, learning disabilities, reasoning, speech development, etc. This collection of articles provides an essential, affordable reference for researchers, graduate students, and clinicians interested in cognitive development, language development, and memory, as well as those developmental psychologists interested in all aspects of development.

R2,182 Discovery Miles 21 820 Within 7 - 11 working days

Human learning is studied in a variety of ways. Motor learning is often studied separately from verbal learning. Studies may delve into anatomy vs function, may view behavioral outcomes or look discretely at the molecular and cellular level of learning. All have merit but they are dispersed across a wide literature and rarely are the findings integrated and synthesized in a meaningful way. Human Learning: Biology, Brain, and Neuroscience synthesizes findings across these levels and types of learning and memory investigation.
Divided into three sections, each section includes a discussion by the editors integrating themes and ideas that emerge across the chapters within each section. Section 1 discusses general topics in human learning and cognition research, including inhibition, short term and long term memory, verbal memory, memory disruption, and scheduling and learning. Section 2 discusses cognitive neuroscience aspects of human learning. Coverage here includes models, skill acquisition, declarative and non declarative memory, age effects on memory, and memory for emotional events. Section 3 focuses on human motor learning.
This book is suitable for cognitive neuroscientists, cognitive psychologists, kinesthesiologists, and graduate courses in learning.
* Synthesizes research from a variety of disciplines, levels, and content areas
* Provides section discussions on common findings between chapters
* Covers motor and verbal learning
