Person-Centered Diagnosis and Treatment in Mental Health by Peter Ladd,AnnMarie Churchill Pdf

Clients with mental health conditions are often diagnosed and treated using a strictly medical model of diagnosis, with little input from the client themselves. This reference manual takes a person-centered, holistic approach to diagnosis and treatment, seeing the client as the unrecognized expert on their condition and encouraging their collaboration. This qualitative approach aims to find meaning in the experiences of the client, exploring the reasons behind their feelings and behaviour and taking the whole person into account. Designed to complement DSM assessments, the manual covers several different conditions including ADHD, depression, bulimia, and OCD, as well as mental health 'patterns' such as abuse, bullying, violence and loss. In each case, the client is involved in the diagnosis and treatment plan. The book features extended case studies, sample questions and treatment plans throughout. This will be an essential reference book for all those involved in mental health diagnosis and treatment, including psychologists, psychiatrists, mental health counselors, clinical social workers, school counselors and therapists.

Junkie Meets Jesus by Colin Garnett Pdf

‘Colin Garnett grew up in Stockport, South Manchester, in a tough working-class culture. A teenage involvement with alcohol, amphetamines and violence led to an adult heroin addiction. For many years he was lost in a crime-and-drugs lifestyle and did time in twenty-seven different English prison and two military prisons. But on 17th June 1993, in a prison chapel, he turned to God with a heavy heart and received Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Saviour. From that moment, God started to transform Colin’s life. Colin has become a highly effective evangelist with a very powerful ministry to those in prisons and their families, to those trapped in addictions and their families, and to the hearts and minds of developing youth. Colin and his wife Deanna now run The Bethesda Recovery Homes of South Africa where they are seeing a steady stream of individuals and families receiving reconciliation and freedom’. ENDORSEMENTS ‘Meeting Colin Garnett and hearing his story was a spiritual tonic – if not a shake-up! May God continue to keep him and use him in this very needy and difficult work for which he is almost uniquely gifted and qualified’ – Dick Lucas, Rector Emeritus, St Helen’s Church, Bishopsgate, London ‘Jesus Christ is the hope of the world. It has been a privilege to see that hope so powerfully expressed through the life and ministry of Colin Garnett, one of our graduates. Read and Rejoice’. Dr Steve Brady, Principle, Moorlands College ‘As you read this story you might forgiven for doubting its veracity because it seems so fantastic in an age of cynicism, but I urge you to read on to the end and conclude that only God can change a life and that He has done well with Colin’. Rev. Vic Jackopson M.B.E. - Founder and President of Hope Now International. ‘There are some very special people that God takes from the most unlikely places and transforms them to serve Him in an utterly amazing way. Colin is one of those people and this book is a testimony to the amazing God who continues to turn our rags to His riches. Enjoy this challenging read that has a profound message to give in an age of cynicism and despair’. Colin Bennett, Deputy Principle, Moorlands College

Creating the American Junkie by Caroline Jean Acker Pdf

Heroin was only one drug among many that worried Progressive Era anti-vice reformers, but by the mid-twentieth century, heroin addiction came to symbolize irredeemable deviance. Creating the American Junkie examines how psychiatrists and psychologists produced a construction of opiate addicts as deviants with inherently flawed personalities caught in the grip of a dependency from which few would ever escape. Their portrayal of the tough urban addict helped bolster the federal government's policy of drug prohibition and created a social context that made the life of the American heroin addict, or junkie, more, not less, precarious in the wake of Progressive Era reforms. Weaving together the accounts of addicts and researchers, Acker examines how the construction of addiction in the early twentieth century was strongly influenced by the professional concerns of psychiatrists seeking to increase their medical authority; by the disciplinary ambitions of pharmacologists to build a drug development infrastructure; and by the American Medical Association's campaign to reduce prescriptions of opiates and to absolve physicians in private practice from the necessity of treating difficult addicts as patients. In contrast, early sociological studies of heroin addicts formed a basis for criticizing the criminalization of addiction. By 1940, Acker concludes, a particular configuration of ideas about opiate addiction was firmly in place and remained essentially stable until the enormous demographic changes in drug use of the 1960s and 1970s prompted changes in the understanding of addiction—and in public policy.

Border Junkies by Scott Comar,Howard Campbell Pdf

The drug war that has turned Juárez, Mexico, into a killing field that has claimed more than 7,000 lives since 2008 captures headlines almost daily. But few accounts go all the way down to the streets to investigate the lives of individual drug users. One of those users, Scott Comar, survived years of heroin addiction and failed attempts at detox and finally cleaned up in 2003. Now a graduate student at the University of Texas at El Paso in the history department's borderlands doctoral program, Comar has written Border Junkies, a searingly honest account of his spiraling descent into heroin addiction, surrender, change, and recovery on the U.S.-Mexico border. Border Junkies is the first book ever written about the lifestyle of active addiction on the streets of Juárez. Comar vividly describes living between the disparate Mexican and American cultures and among the fellow junkies, drug dealers, hookers, coyote smugglers, thieves, and killers who were his friends and neighbors in addiction—and the social workers, missionaries, shelter workers, and doctors who tried to help him escape. With the perspective of his anthropological training, he shows how homelessness, poverty, and addiction all fuel the use of narcotics and the rise in their consumption on the streets of Juárez and contribute to the societal decay of this Mexican urban landscape. Comar also offers significant insights into the U.S.-Mexico borderland's underground and peripheral economy and the ways in which the region's inhabitants adapt to the local economic terrain.

As your Life Score increases, you will start to feel better in life. Aiming for a 70% Life Score balanced throughout your six Life Elements is the key to success: Home Work Self-Development Pleasure Social Partner Although the world frequently goes through periods of economic uncertainty, the rich are still getting richer and inequality is as widespread as ever. One aspect that levels the playing field for all of us is our capacity to experience satisfaction and happiness in our lives. People are realising that we are moving into an ideas economy where our minds are driving the world forward more than our hands. With this shift away from excess and materials into ideas and services, having a positive life experience is becoming more important than money. You may be cash rich and time poor. Or worst still, cash and time poor. However, neither of these circumstances preclude the opportunity to become addicted to leading a better life. What makes this book different? There are many self-help books out there, but you will not find many that will provide you with a proven step-by-step rational guide on how to lead a satisfying life. This book has a measurable and repeatable life-design system that motivates you to regularly gain Life Points based on your intrinsic values. From the Back Cover THE STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO USING THE LIFE POINTS STRATEGY. GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR LIFE TODAY. GDP is dead.

Leading a balanced and satisfying life is a challenge that many people struggle to overcome because they don't understand what they want and how much control they really have to change. Often their own limiting beliefs are holding them back. The Life Junkie provides a practical guide on how to measure and improve your life satisfaction on a regular basis. A by-product of higher satisfaction levels is a sense of happiness. Every activity you participate in will give you Life Points. The more you do in each of the six Life Elements, the higher your total Life Score. Aiming for a Life Score of 70% will give you purpose and fulfilment like you've never experienced before.

As the portrait of a fringe group, this book invites the reader to engage with the phenomenon of outcasts; it orders the rich material – which has grown out of numerous projects of artistic research with female drug users in European prisons and therapy institutions – and sets it into context. In this way, the conditions which have become structurally embedded in social processes are laid open and made perceptible as a matter of public concern. The biographical and artistic work with the inmates, the correspondence, the interventions in the isolated, public, and cultural sphere, the minutes, reflections, and results of the interdisciplinary exchange with scientists are comprehensively documented and illustrated.

This book narrates all the areas of my life where I have failed and what I would have done differently to bring out the best of me. This book gives you all the practical ways of becoming the best of you. It is a ten-volume series designed and written to help you become the best, and nothing but the best.

The Globalisation of Addiction by Bruce K. Alexander Pdf

The Globalisation of Addiction presents a radical rethink about the nature of addiction. Scientific medicine has failed when it comes to addiction. There are no reliable methods to cure it, prevent it, or take the pain out of it. There is no durable consensus on what addiction is, what causes it, or what should be done about it. Meanwhile, it continues to increase around the world. This book argues that the cause of this failure to control addiction is that the conventional wisdom of the 19th and 20th centuries focused too single-mindedly on the afflicted individual addict. Although addiction obviously manifests itself in individual cases, its prevalence differs dramatically between societies. For example, it can be quite rare in a society for centuries, and then become common when a tribal culture is destroyed or a highly developed civilization collapses. When addiction becomes commonplace in a society, people become addicted not only to alcohol and drugs, but to a thousand other destructive pursuits: money, power, dysfunctional relationships, or video games. A social perspective on addiction does not deny individual differences in vulnerability to addiction, but it removes them from the foreground of attention, because social determinants are more powerful. This book shows that the social circumstances that spread addiction in a conquered tribe or a falling civilisation are also built into today's globalizing free-market society. A free-market society is magnificently productive, but it subjects people to irresistible pressures towards individualism and competition, tearing rich and poor alike from the close social and spiritual ties that normally constitute human life. People adapt to their dislocation by finding the best substitutes for a sustaining social and spiritual life that they can, and addiction serves this function all too well. The book argues that the most effective response to a growing addiction problem is a social and political one, rather than an individual one. Such a solution would not put the doctors, psychologists, social workers, policemen, and priests out of work, but it would incorporate their practices in a larger social project. The project is to reshape society with enough force and imagination to enable people to find social integration and meaning in everyday life. Then great numbers of them would not need to fill their inner void with addictions.

Approval Junkie by Faith Salie Pdf

From comedian and journalist Faith Salie, of NPR's Wait Wait…Don't Tell Me! and CBS News Sunday Morning, a collection of daring, funny essays chronicling the author's adventures during her lifelong quest for approval Faith Salie has done it all in the name of validation. Whether she’s trying to impress her parents with a perfect GPA, undergoing an exorcism to save her toxic marriage, or baking a 3D excavator cake for her son’s birthday, Salie is the ultimate approval seeker—an “approval junkie,” if you will. In this collection of daring, honest essays, Salie shares stories from her lifelong quest for gold stars, recounting her strategy for winning (very Southern) high school beauty pageant; her struggle to pick the perfect outfit to wear to her divorce; and her difficulty falling in love again, and then conceiving, in the years following her mother’s death. With thoughtful irreverence, Salie reflects on why she tries so hard to please others, and herself, highlighting a phenomenon that many people—especially women—experience at home and in the workplace. Equal parts laugh-out loud funny and poignant, Approval Junkie is one woman’s journey to realizing that seeking approval from others is more than just getting them to like you—it's challenging yourself to achieve, and survive, more than you ever thought you could.
