Making sense of complementary and alternative treatments in mental health care. In mental health care, as in medical care, more and more clinicians are turning to unconventional assessment and treatment approaches to evaluate and treat their patients in the most effective way possible. But how is a clinician to makes sense of the range of complementary and alternative treatments (CAM), and when is it appropriate and safe to use conventional therapies alongside them? In this practical resource, Dr. Lake, a pioneer in the field of integrative mental healthcare, teaches readers how to integrate conventional mental healthcare—drugs and psychotherapy—with complementary and alternative approaches, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids and other natural products, mind-body practices, light therapy, music, biofeedback, energy therapies, acupuncture, and others. This is a concise, evidence-based guide to the day-to-day management of common mental health problems using an integrative approach.

This volume is a concise, convenient, and clearly written book for those who wish to study, master, and teach the core competencies of cognitive-behavioral therapy. Relevant for novice therapists as well as experienced clinicians and supervisors, this text also goes “between the lines” of evidence-based practices to highlight those methods which maximize the motivational and inspirational power of this therapy. Dr. Newman focuses on ways in which therapists can make treatment memorable for clients, thus enhancing maintenance and self-efficacy. He also highlights the value system that is inherent in best practices of cognitive-behavioral therapies, such as clinicians’ commitment to earn the trust and collaboration of clients, to be humble students of the field for their entire careers, and to seek to combine the best of empirical thinking with warmth and creativity. Notably, this handbook also emphasizes the importance of therapists applying cognitive-behavioral principles to themselves in the form of self-reflective skills, good problem-solving, being role models of self-care, and being able to use techniques thoughtfully in the service of repairing strains in the therapeutic relationship. Newman’s book provides many enlightening clinical examples, including those practices that otherwise eager therapists should not do (such as “micro-managing” the client’s thoughts), as well as a plethora of transcript material that describes best supervisory practices. It does all this with a tone that is engaging, respectful of the reader, caring towards the clients, and optimistic about the positive impact cognitive-behavioral therapies—when learned and used well—can have on the lives of so many, clients and clinicians alike.

Integrative psychotherapy: using the principles of dynamic complex systems to guide everyday clinical work. This book introduces a new, integrative, systemic approach to psychotherapy and counseling and shows how the principles of dynamic complex systems can guide everyday clinical work. Our mental, interpersonal, and biological (e.g., neuronal) systems are complex and nonlinear, and allow spontaneous pattern formation and chaotic dynamics. Their self-organizing nature sometimes maneuvers the systems into pathological states. However, the very same principles can be utilized therapeutically to encourage change for the better. The feedback-driven nonlinear dynamic systems approach described here basically attempts to facilitate positive self-organizing processes, such as order transitions, healthy patterns of behavior, and learning processes. In addition to describing the theory and evidence supporting the feedback-driven nonlinear dynamic systems approach, the authors use an extensive case study to illustrate how the principles of dynamic complex systems can guide everyday clinical work. They show how modeling and monitoring of the client‘s systems and an empirical description of its patterns allows the therapist to individually fine-tune therapeutic techniques to support the client’s progress. Fine-meshed feedback based on real-time data and time-series analysis is at the core of the approach, and so an internet-based monitoring system – the Synergetic Navigation System (SNS) – that helps capture dynamic processes and guide practitioners’ therapeutic decisions is also described.

Advances are constantly being made in the fields of medicine and healthcare, and keeping abreast of them is not always easy. This book presents the proceedings of the second KES International Conference on Innovation in Medicine and Healthcare (InMed 14), held in San Sebastian, Spain, in July 2014. The conference was attended by researchers and engineers, managers, students and practitioners from a broad spectrum of medically related fields, and this multidisciplinary group discussed the ways in which technological and methodological innovation, knowledge exchange and enterprise can be applied to issues relating to medicine, surgery, healthcare and the issues of an ageing population. A central theme of the conference was smart medical and healthcare systems, which explored how modern intelligent systems can contribute to the solution of problems faced by healthcare and medical practitioners today and addressed the application of the systems. The 43 papers included here provided a useful and interesting reference for anyone requiring an overview of current innovations in healthcare.

Asian Healing Traditions in Counseling and Psychotherapy explores the various healing approaches and practices in the East and bridges them with those in the West to show counselors how to provide culturally sensitive services to distinct populations. Editors Roy Moodley, Ted Lo, and Na Zhu bring together leading scholars across Asia to demystify and critically analyze traditional Far East Asian healing practices—such as Chinese Taoist Healing practices, Morita Therapy, Naikan Therapy, Mindfulness and Existential Therapy, Buddhism and Mindfulness Meditation, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy—in relation to health and mental health in the West. The book will not only show counselors how to apply Eastern and Western approaches to their practices but will also shape the direction of counseling and psychotherapy research for many years to come.
