              Life and Suicide Following Brain Injury tells the story of Tom, a 43 year-old man who acquired a brain injury from a road traffic accident at the age of 22. Tom survived but went on to take his own life 20 years later. As a vulnerable adult with mental health issues and long-term... difficulties with substance misuse, this book tells Tom's story from his early childhood through to his death. In telling Tom's story, the author- a researcher in brain injury and Tom's sister- identifies the multiple suicide risk factors as well as the lack of understanding and inadequate service provision for people with complex needs following TBI. His story serves as a harrowing example of what can go wrong when timely intervention and support is not forthcoming, identifying a multitude of risk factors and possible points of intervention to improve care in the future. This book provides insight to professionals and academics across health and social care in the risks of suicide associated with TBI. It also provides support for those who have experienced the grief of losing a survivor to suicide, or those struggling to support a survivor who is suicidal.

              The experience of adoption, both adopting and being adopted, can stir up deep emotional pain, often related to loss and early trauma. A for Adoption provides insight and support to those families and individuals facing these complex processes and challenges. Drawing on both a psy...choanalytic, theoretical framework, and first-hand accounts of adopters, adoptees and professionals within the adoption process, Alison Roy responds to the need for further and consistent support for adoptive parents and children, to help inform and understand the reality of their every-day lives. This book explores both the current and historical context of adoption, as well as its depiction within literature before addressing issues such as conflict in relationships, the impact of significant trauma and loss, attachment and the importance of early relationships, and contact with birth families. Uniquely, this book addresses the experiences of, and provides support for, both adoptive professionals and families. It focuses on understanding, rather than apportioning blame, and responds to a plea from parents who requested .... a book to help me understand my child better...

              We are in the early stages of the next big platform shift in healthcare computing. Fueled by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the cloud, AI is already transforming the way health and medical services are provided. As the industry transitions from static digital repositories to in...telligent systems there will be winners and losers in the race to innovate and automate the provision of services. Critical to success will be the role leaders play in shaping the use of AI to be less artificial and more intelligent in support of improving processes to deliver care and keep people healthy and productive across all care settings. This book defines key technical, process, people and ethical issues that will need to be understood and addressed in planning and executing an effective AI plan. It provides clinical and business leaders with a framework for successfully moving organizations from the aspiration to execution phase of intelligent systems to improve clinical, operational and financial performance. Written for clinical and business leaders in health, this book defines Artificial Intelligence and its role in driving digital transformation to improve clinical, operational and financial outcomes of provider, payer and public health organizations worldwide. It provides readers with an in-depth (but non-technical) look at the technology building blocks of AI (e.g. machine learning, cognitive services, bots) with real-world use cases cited along the way to illustrate the power of AI in healthcare settings. This book defines a practical planning framework empowering clinical, business and IT leaders to understand AI and create an organizational plan to implement intelligent solutions that increase the effectiveness of every worker in achieving the goals and objectives of health and medical organizations.

              The Routledge Handbook of Ecocultural Identity brings the ecological turn to sociocultural understandings of self. The editors introduce a broad, insightful assembly of original theory and research on planetary positionalities in flux and formation in the Anthropocene - or what c...ultural ecologist David Abram presciently introduces in this Handbook as the Humilocene, the epoch of humility. Forty international authors craft a kaleidoscopic lens, focusing on the following key inquiries in this burgeoning field: Section I illuminates identity as always ecocultural, expanding understandings of who we are and how we become as individuals, groups, and a species. Section II examines ways ecocultural identities are fostered and ways difference and spaces of interaction can be powerful sources for reimagining futures. Section III illustrates ways the media sphere (re)produces and challenges particular ecocultural identifications. Section IV delves into politics of identities and ways ecocultural frameworks inform resolutions as complex and integral as the current planetary moment. Section V demonstrates ways to evolve identities and, in turn, the sociocultural systems at the heart of ecocultural relations. The Routledge Handbook of Ecocultural Identity provides an essential interdisciplinary resource for scholars, teachers, students, protectors, and practitioners interested in ecological and sociocultural regeneration.

              Students often think of science as disconnected pieces of information rather than a narrative that challenges their thinking, requires them to develop evidence-based explanations for the phenomena under investigation, and communicate their ideas in discipline-specific language as... to why certain solutions to a problem work.

              Drawing on the findings of a series of empirical studies undertaken with boards of directors and CEOs in the United States, this groundbreaking book develops a new paradigm to provide a structured analysis of ethical healthcare governance. Governance Ethics in Healthcare Organiza...tions begins by presenting a clear framework for ethical analysis, designed around basic features of ethics - who we are, how we function, and what we do - before discussing the paradigm in relation to clinical, organizational and professional ethics. It goes on to apply this framework in areas that are pivotal for effective governance in healthcare: oversight structures for trustees and executives, community benefit, community health, patient care, patient safety and conflicted collaborative arrangements. This book is an important read for all those interested in healthcare management, corporate governance and healthcare ethics, including academics, students and practitioners.

              Touch has been a taboo in mainstream Western talking therapies since their inception. This book examines the effects on us of touch, and of touch deprivation - what we feel when we are touched, what it means to us, and the fact that some individuals and cultures are more tactile ...than others. The author traces the development and perpetuation of the touch taboo, puts forward counterarguments to it, outlines criteria for the safe and effective use of touch in therapy, and suggests ways of dismantling the touch taboo should we wish to do so. Through moving interviews with clients who have experienced life-changing benefits of physical contact at the hands of their therapists, the place of touch in therapy practice is re-evaluated and the therapy profession urged to re-examine its attitudes towards this important therapeutic tool. This book will be essential reading for therapists, counsellors, social workers, educators, health professionals and for any general reader interested in the crucial issue of touch in everyday life.

              A Practice Beyond Cultural Humility offers specific guidance to support students and practitioners in providing on-going, culturally competent professional care. The book introduces a cultural diversity-training model named the ORCA-Stance, an intentional practice which brings to...gether four core components: Openness, Respect, Curiosity, and Accountability. Drawing from an array of influences, including theological and evidenced-based thinking, it showcases work with common clinical populations in a variety of contexts, from private practice to international organizations. Each clinical chapter offers a brief review of information relevant to the population discussed, followed by a case study using the ORCA-Stance, and a summary of recommended best practices. Topics such as poverty, immigration, and chronic illness are explored and, in each case, the practice of the ORCA-Stance is shown to allow relationships to become more culturally attuned and, therefore, more effective. A Practice Beyond Cultural Humility provides practical examples, research, and wisdom that can be applied in day-to-day clinical work and will be valuable reading for graduates, marriage and family therapists, and mental health workers who seek to continue their professional development.
