an experiential approach to psychopathology 2016 what is it like to suffer from mental disorders

giovanni stanghellini

description

this book introduces the reader to a clear and consistent method for in-depth exploration of subjective psychopathological experiences with the aim of helping to restore the ability within psychiatry and clinical psychology to draw qualitative distinctions between mental symptoms that are only apparently similar, thereby promoting a more precise characterization of experiential phenotypes. a wide range of mental disorders are considered in the book, each portrayed by a distinguished clinician. each chapter begins with the description of a paradigmatic case study in order to introduce the reader directly to the patient's lived world. the first-person perspective of the patient is the principal focus of attention. the essential, defining features of each psychopathological phenomenon and the meaning that the patient attaches to it are carefully analyzed in order to "make sense" of the patient's apparently nonsensical experiences. in the second part of each chapter, the case study is discussed within the context of relevant literature and a detailed picture of the state of the art concerning the psychopathological understanding of the phenomenon at issue is provided.
an experiential approach to psychopathology, and the method it proposes, may be considered the result of convergence of classic phenomenological psychopathological concepts and updated clinical insights into patients' lived experiences. it endorses three key principles: subjective phenomena are the quintessential feature of mental disorders; their qualitative study is mandatory; phenomenology has developed a rigorous method to grasp "what it is like" to be a person experiencing psychopathological phenomena. while the book is highly relevant for expert clinical phenomenologists, it is written in a way that will be readily understandable for trainees and young clinicians.show more

treatment of generalized anxiety disorder therapist guides and patient manual

gavin andrews

description

generalized anxiety disorder (gad) is characterised by excessive anxiety and worry about everyday concerns such as work, family, relationships, finances, health, and safety. the worry is difficult to control; it lasts months and years rather than hours or days, and is accompanied by a variety of additional symptoms including restlessness, irritability, fatigue, muscle tension, and difficulties concentrating and sleeping. the worry and anxiety in gad is distressing and disabling. people who worry in a maladaptive way benefit from good, proactive treatment, and that is the focus of this book. it begins by tracing the history of gad. it then looks at the effectiveness of pharmacological and psychological treatments and favours the latter. in chapter 4, contemporary models of gad are listed and new developments in cognitive behaviour therapy (cbt) are explored. this chapter may be particularly applicable to the difficult-to-get-better patient. a clinician's guide to treatment is then presented which covers assessment, formulation, and the beneficial and problematic steps in cbt.
finally there is a patients' treatment manual that can be used as a curriculum for individual or group therapy, or it can be copied and provided to patients to work though on their own. 'treatment of generalized anxiety disorder' is a short, accessible, and practical guide for any therapist who has to deal with this debilitating problem.show more

mentalization based treatment for personality disorders a practical guide

anthony bateman

description

mentalizing – the ability to understand oneself and others by inferring mental states that lie behind overt behaviour – develops within the context of attachment relationships. it is crucial to self-regulation and constructive, intimate relationships, both of which are impaired in personality disorders because of sensitivity to losing mentalizing at times of anxiety and attachment stress. loss of mentalizing leads to interpersonal and social problems, emotional variability, impulsivity, self-destructive behaviours, and violence. this practical guide on mentalization-based treatment (mbt) of personality disorders outlines the mentalizing model of borderline and antisocial personality disorders and how it translates into clinical treatment.
the book, divided into four parts – the mentalizing framework, basic mentalizing practice, mentalizing and groups, and mentalizing systems – covers the aims and structure of treatment, outlines how patients are introduced to the mentalizing model so that their personality disorder makes sense to them, explains why certain interventions are recommended and others are discouraged, and systematically describes the process of treatment in both group and individual therapy to support more stable mentalizing. people with personality disorders commonly have comorbid mental health problems, such as depression and eating disorders, which complicate clinical treatment. therefore, the book advises the clinician on how to manage comorbidity in treatment. in addition, mentalizing problems in families and social systems, for example, schools and mental health services are also covered. a families and carers training and support guide is provided as families and others are often neglected during the treatment of people with personality disorder. the book is a valuable guide for all mental health workers on how to effectively treat personality disorders.show more

the healing virtues character ethics in psychotherapy

associate professor of philosophy duff waring

description

the healing virtues explores the intersection of psychotherapy and virtue ethics – with an emphasis on the patient's role within a healing process. it considers how the common ground between the therapeutic process and the cultivation of virtues can inform the efforts of both therapist and patient. the ethics of psychotherapy revolve partly around what therapists should or should not do as well as the sort of person that therapists should be: e.g., empathic, prudent, compassionate, respectful, and trustworthy. contemporary practitioners have argued for therapist virtues that are relevant to assisting the patient's efforts in a healing process. but the ethics of a therapeutic dialogue can also revolve around the sort of person the patient should be. within this book, duff r. waring argues that there is a case for patient virtues that are relevant to dealing with the problems in living that arise in psychotherapy, e.g., honesty, courage, humility, perseverance. the central idea is that treatment may need to build virtues while it ameliorates problems. hence, the patient's work in psychotherapy can both challenge character strengths and result in their further development.
the book is unique in bringing the topic of virtue ethics to the psychotherapeutic encounter, and will be of interest to psychotherapists, philosophers, and psychiatrists.show more

interpersonal psychotherapy for posttraumatic stress disorder

john c. markowitz

description

posttraumatic stress disorder (ptsd) is a prevalent, debilitating public health problem. cognitive behavioral therapies (cbts), and specifically exposure-based therapy, have long dominated ptsd treatment. empirically supported treatments-prolonged exposure (pe), cognitive processing therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (emdr), and virtual reality therapy-all have relied upon the "fear extinction model" of exposing patients to reminders of their trauma until they grow accustomed to and extinguish the fear. while exposure-based treatments work, they (like all treatments) have their limits. many patients refuse to undergo them or drop out of treatment prematurely; others may actually worsen in such treatment; and still others simply do not benefit from them. interpersonal psychotherapy for posttraumatic stress disorder describes a novel approach that has the potential to transform the psychological treatment of ptsd. drawing on exciting new clinical research findings, this book provides a new, less threatening treatment option for the many patients and therapists who find exposure-based treatments grueling.
interpersonal psychotherapy (ipt) for ptsd was tested in a randomized controlled trial that compared three psychotherapies. dr. markowitz and his group found that ipt was essentially just as effective as exposure-based prolonged exposure. ipt had higher response rates and lower dropout rates than did pe, particularly for patients who were also suffering from major depression. these novel findings suggest that patients need not undergo exposure to recover from ptsd. interpersonal psychotherapy for posttraumatic stress disorder describes an exciting alternative therapy for ptsd, details the results of the study, and provides an ipt treatment manual for ptsd.show more

attention deficit hyperactivity disorder adult outcome and its predictors

lily hechtman

description
