              First publishe din 1992: Find out by reading Behavior and Immunity, a new volume that consists of papers presented at the Scientific Meeting of the Australian Behavioral Immunology Group (ABIG) held in November, 1990, at the University of Newcastle, Australia. The ABIG was establ...ished in response to the need to provide a forum for the presentation of data and exchange of ideas regarding the concept of brain, behavior, and immunity. The papers presented in this volume represent the state of the art in a number of areas where these interactions have been studied. Information is presented regarding the biochemistry, neurophysiology, and endocrinology of nervous system/immune system interactions; the role of behavioral conditioning in immunity; the effects of sleep and biological rhythms on immune function; the role of lifestyle, life events, and exercise in immunity; and the impact of psychoimmunology in clinical medicine. Researchers in immunology, psychology, neurology; physicians; and lay people with an interest in the interaction between lifestyle and health will find a wealth of information in this stimulating volume.

              Originally published in 1997, using 50 pharmacological case studies, this title illustrates how chronic and difficult psychiatric disorders ranging from paranoid to obsessive-compulsive personality disorder can be responsive to treatment. Readers are first taught to translate DSM...-IV diagnostic criteria to identifiable and treatable symptom correlates which are then targeted for treatment using rationally chosen medications or combinations of medication along with psychotherapy. Since medications rapidly control dysfunctional symptoms, psychotherapy becomes much more effective, enabling psychotherapists and patients to focus on underlying psychosocial issues and conflicts. Personality Disorders can help you acquire an understanding of general diagnostic and treatment concepts, the ability to identify target symptoms, and the knowledge to select medications to address each symptom identified. As a result, psychotherapy will become less time-consuming and costly and therapeutic results will be felt more quickly--desirable goals in this managed care environment. This guidebook prepares you for effective treatment of personality disorders by exploring: symptom correlates of all personality disorders medication groups with dosage guidelines clinically relevant explanations for choice of symptoms and medications clinical profiles of new antidepressants and antipsychotics intelligent use of modern rational polypharmacy Clinicians seeking to modernize and refine their approaches to treating personality disorders will learn effective drug therapy treatments that produce rapid results. Personality Disorders helps psychiatrists, primary care physicians, psychologists, psychiatric residents, counselors, social workers, and nurses who manage personality disorders to understand that patients' dysfunctional thoughts, perceptions, and behaviors are symptoms mediated by the brain. Medical students and clinical psychology students learn to approach personality disorders in the same cl

              This title was first published in 2003. This work arose out of the editors' concerns at the British preoccupation with an alleged epidemic of schizophrenia in people of African descent. Black people in contact with psychiatric services are commonly classed as schizophrenic or nor...mal and do not seem to attract any of the diagnoses or interventions which their white counterparts do. The editors asked contributors to carry out a critical broad-based review of a particular area using the technology that has been developed for conducting systematic literature reviews. The areas explored were selected by the editors from their own understanding of disciplines which might have something to contribute. They were largely disciplines which have an interest in beliefs, feelings, emotions, thought, politics, language and decision-making. In some areas there was little material available from literature searches so the reviewers used their own understanding of the subject matter rather than existing literature to write critical essays.

              In the 1980s, transcultural psychiatry was a developing field which was commanding increasing attention for three major reasons. First, many societies were becoming more and more multicultural, and therefore professional health workers needed to be aware of the needs and backgrou...nd of ethnic groups, as well as to be familiar with their own cultural assumptions. Secondly, the study of psychiatric illness across cultures can illuminate features of such an illness in our own society. Thirdly, the way in which racism may initiate or sustain psychiatric disorder had become a topic essential to a present-day understanding of transcultural psychiatry. Originally published in 1986, this book provides a review of many such aspects of transcultural psychiatry. It is written at a level suitable for mental health professionals, including trainee psychiatrists, but would also interest students and other qualified staff, including psychologists, nurses, social workers and other professional workers concerned with race relations and the provision of psychiatric services for ethnic groups.

              How The Brain Lost Its Mind: Sex, Hysteria and the Riddle of Mental Illness (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Ropper, Allan

              In 1882, Jean-Martin Charcot was the premiere physician in Paris, having just established a neurology clinic at the infamous Salpetriere Hospital, a place that was called a 'grand asylum of human misery'. Assessing the dismal conditions, he quickly upgraded the facilities, and in... doing so, revolutionized the treatment of mental illness. Many of Charcot's patients had neurosyphilis (the advanced form of syphilis), a disease of mad poets, novelists, painters, and musicians, and a driving force behind the overflow of patients in Europe's asylums. A sexually transmitted disease, it is known as 'the great imitator' since its symptoms resemble those of almost any biological disease or mental illness. It is also the perfect lens through which to peel back the layers to better understand the brain and the mind. Yet, Charcot's work took a bizarre turn when he brought mesmerism - hypnotism - into his clinic, abandoning his pursuit of the biological basis of illness in favour of the far sexier and theatrical treatment of female 'hysterics', whose symptoms mimic those seen in brain disease, but were elusive in origin. This and a general fear of contagion set the stage for Sigmund Freud, whose seductive theory, Freudian analysis, brought sex and hysteria onto the psychiatrist couch, leaving the brain behind. How The Brain Lost Its Mind tells this rich and compelling story, and raises a host of philosophical and practical questions. Are we any closer to understanding the difference between a sick mind and a sick brain? The real issue remains: where should neurology and psychiatry converge to explore not just the brain, but the nature of the human psyche?
