Nutrition and Eating Disorders  Third Edition

Praise for the previous edition: "...easy-to-read...well-balanced...a good amount of detail."—School Library Journal Media images of "ideal bodies"—which, in reality, are often dangerously thin—make it easy for people to start worrying about their own body shapes and compare themselves to these model ideals. For some people, this concern with thinness becomes an obsession, and they fall victim to eating disorders. The sufferer may starve him- or herself, exercise too much, or deliberately vomit to purge the body of calories. This new edition of Nutrition and Eating Disorders, Third Edition examines some of the most common eating disorders, from anorexia nervosa to binge eating.

Changing Bodies  Changing Lives  Expanded Third Edition

"It seems like everyone else has the script. Everyone else knows what's happening and I look around and say, Duh." Of course, the truth is that no one has the script because there is no script to follow. Chances are you'd find that almost everyone else has questions and worries a lot like yours, if you could get them to admit it. This brand-new, completely updated and revised edition of Changing Bodies, Changing Lives is full of honest, accurate, nonjudgmental information on everything teenagers need to know about today. Am I the only one who can't get up the nerve to ask someone out? got my period so early? doesn't even know the right way to kiss? feels pressured to use drugs? still hasn't hit puberty yet? wants to avoid the gang scene? worries when my mom doesn't come home at night? is scared that I might have AIDS? can't decide what form of birth control to use? has no idea how to tell my friends I'm gay? goes on eating binges? has never had an orgasm? is shut out of the popular crowd? Changing Bodies, Changing Lives has helped hundreds of thousands of teenagers make informed decisions about their lives, from questions about sex, love, friendship, and how your body works to dealing with problems at school and home and figuring out who you are. It's packed with illustrations, checklists, and resources for the answers you really need. Best of all, it's filled with the voices, poems, and cartoons from hundreds of other teenagers, who tell you what makes them feel worried, angry, confused, sexy, happy, and, yes, even excited and hopeful about their lives. (Check out the first two pages for a sample of the quotes you'll find inside.) Being a teenager is tough. With the information and the ideas inside this book, you'll have what you need to make these years the best they can be.

Treatment Planning for Psychotherapists  Third Edition

Previous editions of Dr. Richard B. Makover's popular handbook Treatment Planning for Psychotherapists shed light on this all-too-often neglected element of psychotherapy while squarely establishing themselves as the go-to references on the topic. Drawing on the author's years of experience, and with engaging and memorable clinical examples, the book presents a top-down, outcome-based approach to treatment planning that emphasizes the importance of the initial interview and assessment to the planning process, while providing practical advice for enhancing patient collaboration and reducing drop-out rates. This revised edition of the guide has been updated to reflect important changes in mental health delivery systems and funding relevant to treatment providers, as well as the challenges and opportunities posed by the digital revolution. It is also more readable than ever: bullet points and chapter-end summaries distill points of emphasis, helping readers take in and reference information easily and effectively. This third edition also features: * An amplified chapter on assessment that explains how this crucial step should inform case formulation and, as a result, treatment planning.* An expanded chapter on the challenges of treating patients struggling with cognitive impairment, addiction and psychoses, among other issues, ensuring that readers are equipped to handle a wide range of scenarios.* A new, simplified approach to the often overlooked but crucial step of formulation.* Suggested readings that will provide therapists with a comprehensive view of psychotherapy in general and treatment planning in particular. The framework and methods offered in this edition of Treatment Planning for Psychotherapists make it an invaluable resource for clinical psychiatrists and psychologists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, psychiatric residents, clinical social workers -- in short, anyone engaged in the challenging but necessary work of helping patients address and overcome their dysfunction.
