They feel they are trapped in their grief - feelings which later surface as the underlying cause of physical and mental problems. For these people mental health treatment is their way back to a healthy life. [This 3rd edition] provides counselling techniques to help identify and treat the grief of the bereaved." - back cover.

Human beings are grieving animals. ‘Consolation’, or an attempt to assuage grief, is an age-old response to loss which has various expressions in different cultural contexts. Over the past century, consolation has dropped off the West’s cultural radar. The contributions to this volume highlight this neglect of consolation in popular and academic discourses and explore the usefulness of the concept of consolation for analysing spatio-temporal constellations. Consolationscapes in the Face of Loss brings together scholars from geography, philosophy, history, anthropology and religious studies. The chapters use spatial and conceptual mappings of grief and consolation to analyse a range of spaces and phenomena around grief, bereavement and remembrance, comfort and resilience, including battlefield memorials, crematoria, graveyards and natural burial sites in Europe. Authors shift the discussion beyond the Global North by including responses to traumatic grief in post-conflict African societies, as well as Australian Aboriginal traditions of ritual consolation. The book focuses on the relationship between space/place and consolation. In so doing, it offers a new lens for research on death, grief and bereavement. It offers new insights for students and researchers interrogating contemporary bereavement, as well as those interested in meaning-making, emerging socio-cultural practices and their role in personal and collective resilience.

Was wissen wir heute über die neuronalen Strukturen und Prozesse, die normalem und gestörtem Erleben und Verhalten zu Grunde liegen? Was wissen wir über die neuronalen Grundlagen psychischer Störungen? Wie kommt es dazu, dass das Gehirn überhaupt psychische Störungen hervorbringt? Wie kann man mit psychologischen Mitteln neuronale Strukturen verändern? Was sind die neuronalen Mechanismen therapeutischer Veränderungen? Welche Schlussfolgerungen ergeben sich für die Praxis der Psychotherapie, wenn man ihre Problemstellungen und den therapeutischen Veränderungsprozess aus einer neurowissenschaftlichen Perspektive betrachtet? Die letzten 15 Jahre haben einen umwälzenden Erkenntnisprozess über die neuronalen Grundlagen unseres Erlebens und Verhaltens eingeleitet. Das Buch vermittelt die für die Psychotherapie relavanten Erkenntnisse der Neurowissenschaften. Es werden konkrete Leitlinien für eine neurowissenschaftlich informierte Therapiepraxis formuliert. Es wird gezeigt, dass man psychische Störungen nicht vom motivierten psychischen Geschehen trennen kann. Psychische Störungen sind Reaktionen auf schwerwiegende Verletzungen der menschlichen Grundbedürfnisse. Ihre neuronalen Grundlagen reichen über die Störung selbst hinaus und müssen mitbehandelt werden, um ein möglichst gutes Therapieergebnis zu erzielen. Daraus ergibt sich ein neues Bild von den Aufgabenstellungen und Möglichkeiten der Psychotherapie. Das Buch vermittelt Therapeuten, Studierenden, Lehrenden und Forschenden auf den Gebieten der Klinischen Psychologie, Psychotherapie und Psychiatrie das erforderliche Know-how für eine professionelle, neurowissenschaftlich fundierte Therapiepraxis.

"[This book] has been honed into an elegant compendium. This outstanding work should be widely read ñ it is perhaps the best example of an integrative approach to gerontology." Score: 94, 4 stars ñ Doody's "Phyisical Change & Aging has been a well-respected resource for caregivers ever since it was published in 1978. This updated version carries on the tradition of providing valuable information on the aging process and age-related health issues." ñ Former First Lady Mrs. Rosalynn Carter This sixth edition of a classic multidisciplinary text for students of gerontology continues to offer practical, reader-friendly information about the physical changes and common pathologies associated with the aging process. It places special emphasis on the psychological and social implications of these changes in the lives of older adults. The book is distinguished by its thorough focus on anatomy and physiology and common health problems pertaining to each body system. It emphasizes the positive aspects of aging and demonstrates how the elderly population can gain greater personal control, through lifestyle changes and preventive health strategies, toward the goal of optimal aging. This sixth edition has been thoroughly updated to present new research findings that differentiate "normal" aging from actual pathology and includes substantially updated information on diagnosis and treatment. It incorporates new data from healthy older adults demonstrating that the aging process is not necessarily as devastating as earlier research had indicated. The book provides new data and guidelines on risk factors, nutrition, preventive measures, interventions, and commonly prescribed medications, and includes expanded treatment of complementary and alternative therapies. Also included is an updated discussion of grief, ethical issues, and funeral options. The book reinforces information with practical applications of aging data. Written for students of gerontology, social work, human services, nursing, medicine, occupational and physical therapy, counseling, and elder law, it presents information that is clearly understandable for those without an extensive background in biology or medicine. Additionally, the book is a useful practitioner's guide and an easily understandable book for family caregivers. THIS SIXTH EDITION INCLUDES NEW INFORMATION ON: Diagnosis and treatment Behaviors and interventions that promote more control over an individual's aging process Genetic/DNA theories Dementia and Parkinson's disease Immunotherapy Lifelong health disparities Animal-assisted therapy Prayer and meditation Pharmacogenetics Geragogy (self-directed learning) Caregiver health as a public health issue Natural funerals (biodegradable caskets, burial urns, dying at home)

"Gamino and Ritter do an excellent job of providing cogent advice and helpful suggestions for how professionals can manage ethical dilemmas that arise from the practice of grief counseling." -J. William Worden, PhD, ABPP Clinical Psychologist Laguna Niguel, California Author, Grief Counseling and Grief Therapy, 4th Edition (From the Foreword) Essential reading for grief counselors, mental health clinicians, death educators, hospice workers, clergy, funeral directors, and social workers. Grief counselors are confronted daily with a host of serious ethical dilemmas, some so critical that they can drastically change the course of a counselor's practice and career. This practical and authoritative guide serves as a comprehensive handbook for navigating the difficult ethical issues grief counselors confront daily with clients. These include confidentiality, end-of-life issues, intimacies with clients, challenges posed by unnatural deaths, spiritual and cultural considerations, and many more. To tackle these issues head on, Gamino and Ritter present the Five P Model, a customized process for ethical decision-making that will help counselors outline a specific, step-by-step course of action to respond to the ethical dilemma at hand. The book is also rich with case examples, both hypothetical and real-life, to demonstrate how to implement the Five P Model in practice, and apply it to various ethical dilemmas. Among the key topics discussed: How to address ethical problems posed by Internet counseling, such as authenticating identity, securing confidentiality, and intervening in a crisis Death competence on the part of the counselor and how the counselor's own experience of grieving can inform counseling practice Guidance on how to report a colleague or face a complaint How to meet ethical obligations towards clients when moving or closing a practice
