Few countries can provide adequate health services for all the mentally ill, yet none has developed a rational system to decide who should be treated. Could we develop a staged treatment process to reach all in need? If not, how do we decide who to treat? What should the criteria be for deployment of scarce treatment resources? How do we determine such criteria? In this pioneering work, an international team of 60 eminent psychiatrists, epidemiologists, health administrators, economists and health planners (including Australia) seek to improve the current health system.052166229X. $25. health, psychiatry, therapy, psychotherapy. abe 12/0 (14) isbn. $10 $12, $30 $31, $160 + 7. psychology.

Current attitudes towards drug misuse in the media and government often exaggerate the pharmacological power of drugs. Their coercive influence is widely believed to be so great that to experiment with a drug is tantamount to addiction. This book argues that such beliefs are largely inaccurate and harmful. Explanations for drug use vary according to circumstances. Drug users may explain that they lost their willpower and capacity for personal decision-making, because this is the explanation expected of them. But most actually use drugs because they want to, and because they see no good reason for giving them up. Addicted behavior is therefore a form of learned helplessness that encourages passivity and irresponsibility.3718651971. $15. psychology, cognition, attributions, health, therapy, addiction. abe 10/0 (15) isbn. $49, $93 +8. addiction.

Argues that the idea of taking drugs to enhance performance has not always been the crisis or evil we now think it is. Instead, the late 19th century was a time of some experimentation and innovation largely unhindered by talk of cheating or health risks. By the interwar period, experiments had been modernised by exercise physiologists, but still there was little sense that this was contrary to the ethics or spirit of sport. World War 2 provided the impetus for both increased use of drugs and the emergence of an anti-doping response. By the late1950s a new ethics framework was imposed on the drugs question that constructed doping in highly emotive terms as evil. Alongside this emerged the science and procedural bureaucracy of testing.9780415357722. $40. history, addiction, drugs, sport. abe 14/0 isbn incl pod. $54 $66 $95. sport.

Prozac, Paxil, Zolofit - turn on your TV and you are likely to see a commercial for one of the many selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) on the market. Explores the history of SSRIs in the United States and the controversies that surround them. When Prozac was released in the late 1980s, Healy was among the psychiatrists who prescribed it. But he soon observed that some of his patients became agitated and even attempted suicide. Could the new wonder drug actually be making patients worse? Healy draws on his own research and expertise to demonstrate the potential hazards associated with these drugs. He intersperses case histories with insider accounts of the research leading to the development and approval of SSRIs as a treatment for depression. Clearly demonstrates that the problems go much deeper than a side-effect of a particular drug. The pharmaceutical industry would like us to believe that SSRIs can safely treat depression, anxiety, and a host of other mental problems. But the cure may be worse than the disease.0814736971. $18. health, depression, addiction, drugs, drug industry, united states. abe 25/1 isbn. $6, $19 $34 $44 ($37). health depression.

Oakland, Ca: Context Press / New Harbinger Publications. Paperback octavo, as new condition, correction slip loosely inserted. 335 pp. 495g. The positive psychology movement is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play. At the same time, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), a mindfulness-based, values-oriented behavioral therapy that has many parallels to Buddhism, yet is not religious in any way, has been focused on helping people achieve their greatest human potential. ACT and positive psychology both promote human flourishing, and they often share overlapping themes and applications, particularly regarding setting goals, psychological strengths, mindfulness, and clarifying what matters most - our values and search for meaning in life. Despite these similarities, both therapeutic models are rarely discussed in relation to one another. By understanding of the seven foundations of well-being, professionals will walk away with concrete, modernized strategies to use when working with clients.9781608823376. $40. psychology, positive psychology, therapy, mindfulness, eastern religions, buddhism, transpersonal. abe 26/1 isbn. $36 $57 $78 +5 ($60 abs). home fast sellers.

MacArthur Foundation Series on Mental Health and Development] (Reprint ed.). Chicago: University of Chicago Press. Paperback octavo, very good plus condition. 512 pp. 725g. At the heart of Sigmund Freud's theory of psychoanalysis is the concept of repression, the avoidance of experiences associated with conflict. Repression and related defense mechanisms such as dissociation remain central concepts in all psychodynamic approaches to psychotherapy, though many cognitive and behavioral scientists have greatly extended and altered Freud's original definition of repressive behavior. The world's leaders in clinical psychiatry, clinical psychology, health psychology, and cognitive psychology examine the historical origins of the concept of repression, survey the clinical and research evidence for its existence as a psychological function, and summarize the major theoretical formulations of repression current today, including the emerging concept of repression as a personality style. Explores the implications of a repressor personality style for physiology and health, investigating its links to stress and its effects on the immune system and on diseases such as cancer.0226761061. $30. psychology, cognition, personality, health, dissociation, repression, abnormal psychology, psychopathology. abe 25/0 (10). $9 $59 +1. psychology.

Most people take the process of coping for granted as they go about their daily activities. In many ways, coping is like breathing, an automatic process requiring no apparent effort. However, when people face truly threatening events (stressors), they become acutely aware of the coping process and respond by consciously applying their day-to-day coping skills. Coping is a fundamental psychological process, and people's skills are commensurately sophisticated. This volume builds on people's strengths and emphasizes their role as positive copers. It features techniques for preventing psychological problems and breaks from the traditional research approach, which is modeled on medicine and focuses on pathology and treatment. These provocative essays explore topics including reality negotiation, confessing through writing, emotional intelligence, optimism, hope, mastery-oriented thinking, and more.0195119347. $20. health, stress, coping, psychology. abe 24/1. $11 $32, $56 + ($28 abs). psychology.
