During the past five years there has been a reawakening of interest in the psychotherapy of patients with medical disorders characterized as psychosomatic. For three decades, psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy were used extensively to treat and study psychosomatic disorders. Early in the 1960s, interest in this approach to these conditions faded, and the ·Psychosomatic Service· in most hospitals became the ·Consultation Liaison Service· (Lipowski, 1967). The recent focus of biofeedback on psychosomatic conditions provides a new technique with which the physician or psychiatrist may treat these patients (Rickles, 1981). In addition, the successful application of biofeedback training to a variety of complaints such as those presented in this volume has heralded the addition of biofeedback to the treatment modalities used for medical complaints. Frequently, psychological factors can still be seen; for example, when biofeedback treatment may require lifestyle changes on the part of the patient, the exploration of secondary gains or resistances before the disorder can be success fully treated, and the establishment of rapport and empathy which is so important for truly effective biofeedback training. Aside from certain psychological dimensions that are always present in biofeed back training, in this case biofeedback is being used in a primarily medical setting for primarily medical complaints.

Renowned marathon expert and leading sports scientist Professor John Brewer reveals why many of the concepts surrounding marathon training and running are wrong ­- and suggests how the latest sports science research transforms the way marathons should be approached. Run Smart uses the latest scientific research to show how preparing for, and running, marathons can be made easier, and in doing so challenges many of the myths that surround marathon running. The book will draw on the author's experience as one of the UK's leading sports scientists, his extensive research background in marathon running, and his experience as a marathon runner, to provide credible advice to runners to support their preparation for a marathon. The book will challenge many current concepts, myths and ideas, and provide science-based alternatives in areas such as training and nutrition that will optimise and ease a runner's preparation for, and completion of, the 26.2 mile distance. This highly accessible book will use the latest scientific findings to support new runners training for their first marathon and help more experienced athletes improve and train smarter.

Running Repairs

Running Repairs is a handbook for everyone who runs - from those training for a one-off charity event, through those who run to keep fit to experienced club runners who regularly race. A recent Runner's World magazine survey revealed that over 80 per cent of runners have experienced an injury and that avoiding injury or recovering from injury is the main worry for nearly every runner. This will be the first book to specifically address these concerns. Written by an experienced physiotherapist and recreational marathon runner, Running Repairs is written in two parts: Part one - covers a series of strengthening and flexibility exercises designed to be incorporated within any running schedule, designed to help prevent injury in the first place. Part two - covers the most common running injuries and how to manage them. A series of flowcharts helps the reader to diagnose the most likely cause of any ache and pain and recommends a plan of action to aid recovery - from rest and ice to referral to a physiotherapist. The book also covers basic biomechanics so that runners can understand their running style and identify the specific injuries that are associated with that style, plus nutritional advice for recovering from injury. The book will be an essential reference for all runners - allowing them to treat any injuries immediately and in many cases saving considerable amounts of money on unnecessary physiotherapy appointments (the author estimates that about 50% of injuries that runners visit her practice with could be treated effectively by the patient and that the vast majority of injuries could be avoided with appropriate exercises being incorporated as part of training).
