"The aspects of the book related to the philosophy of science and cognitive science (inductive and deductive reasoning, biases, and heuristics) are distilled in reasonable and useful ways. I recommend this book to those addiction professionals who want to create their own framework for ethical decision making." --PsycCRITIQUES Ethical decision-making is required in many of the difficult situations faced by addiction professionals. In this guide, Michael Taleff describes how to integrate critical thinking with ethical decision-making.

The author presents common ethical dilemmas that addiction professionals face in their daily work--such as boundary issues, confidentiality, dual relationships, and more--and asks readers to consider their own responses to these dilemmas. The book then shows readers how to apply new models of ethical thinking to practice. Key features: Presents an ethical self-exam to encourage critical thinking about one's own decision-making method Introduces a variety of models such as the social contract theory, existentialist theory, and ethical egoism Discusses how biases, emotional reactions, and fallacies can weaken ethical decision-making Presents an introductory "Ethics Judgment Kit," a simple, practical decision-making procedure for students This book demonstrates how critical thinking skills can impact and improve the process of ethical decision-making.

In the video above, listen to the author, Dr. Roberts, discuss with Chief of Staff John M. Oldham the challenges that medical residents face in managing their own mental health and wellbeing. Professional ethics and decision making have become areas of heightened critical inquiry, as well as matters of normal but challenging psychiatric practice. Informed by the extensive clinical experience of the author and guest contributors, A Clinical Guide to Psychiatric Ethics approaches the ethical aspects of mental health care -- both subtle and dramatic -- with clarity, coherence, and optimism. This engaging text functions as both a review and a guide to issues on the horizon, as well as those encountered every day. The Guide achieves these objectives by employing several strategic features: Structured logically into three parts (Fundamentals, Caring for Special Populations, and Evolving Topics), the book takes the reader from the general to the specific and from the traditional to the emergent. Case scenarios at the end of each chapter not only focus the individual reader on the chapter's concepts and issues, but also may be used in independent study or small-group discussions. The text emphasizes real experience over remote theories, attuning readers to clinical realities with keen sensitivity. It does not offer simple answers, but provides guideposts to impart information, foster skill development, and encourage openness, collaboration, and self-reflection among both veteran clinicians and trainees. Significant focus is given to the care of individuals from distinct populations (e.g., children and veterans) and care occurring in unique contexts (e.g., small communities), underscoring the book's broad usefulness. The material is thoroughly current, aided by useful lists, tables, and figures to enhance its accessibility. A Clinical Guide to Psychiatric Ethics provides a trustworthy compass and expert companion for those traveling with their patients along the ethical frontier of mental illness.

Millions of people enter or seriously consider entering alcohol or drug treatment each year. In their understandable state of urgency, most first-time treatment seekers and their loved ones may rush to the first treatment option they encounter. They are unlikely to be aware of why one form of intervention would be a good choice for their particular problem or why some approaches may, under some conditions, actually be harmful. Lacking reliable information, they are unable to make informed choices. Recovery from Addiction offers a concise, reader-friendly guide for substance dependent persons, their families, and friends to help make sense of the full range of available treatment options. Cloud and Granfield introduce readers to their options, from inpatient and outpatient programs and today's major pharmacological approaches to alternative therapies including strategies for using the Internet to access support meetings and approaches which do not call for life-long abstinence from the substances now causing the problem. They outline the underlying principles of each program, its pros and cons, and what a participant can expect when entering that type of treatment, guiding readers in choosing the approach likely to be best for them or their loved one. They also provide specific strategies for addicted individuals who wish to consider recovery on their own, without groups or treatment. A vital resource for addicts wishing to recover and their loved ones, Recovery from Addiction is also a valuable tool for health care professionals, from social workers to school counselors, responsible for referring clients to drug and alcohol recovery programs.

"It is one thing to discuss these matters clearly and often, but it is another to make them living experiences for the reader. I am particularly impressed by the many ways in which the authors strive to involve the readers, whether it be by presenting dilemmas to consider or spelling out activities that highlight the points under consideration. This not only is a book that students will read with interest and enthusiasm, it also is one that will make the task of the instructor clear and easier to accomplish."- George Stricker, PhD, Argosy University The only text to integrate ACA and APA ethics standards and address ethical aspects of self-care This is the first textbook to integrate both ACA and APA standards of ethics for programs spanning both counseling and psychology disciplines. It provides a clear, comprehensive review of ethical standards and guidelines by the ACA and APA and distills the essence of both to find common ground for counselors and psychologists to understand and engage in ethical decision-making. The text also clarifies legal requirements at state federal levels, and facilitates critical thinking regarding the complex intersections of legal requirements and ethics codes in a way that is easily understandable. Focusing on key issues such as confidentiality, professional boundaries, professional and multicultural competence, social media, and situations with colleagues, the book is also unique in its inclusion of how ethical guidelines are impacted by self-care. Chapters engage readers with self-assessment questions, illustrative case vignettes, and discussion questions. A glossary of terms helps to clarify legal and ethical terminology and additional resources direct readers to more in-depth research. The text is ideally suited to meet the needs of both CACREP and non-CACREP programs that train counselors who work in an interprofessional climate of mental health care . It is also useful for undergraduate programs in addiction and substance abuse services counseling. An Instructor’s Manual provides additional value. Key Features: Reviews and integrates both ACA and APA ethical standards and guidelines Designed for both CACREP and non-CAPREP approved programs staffed by individuals representing both ACA and APA standards Focuses on confidentiality, professional boundaries, competence, social media, and responsibilities to colleagues Offers information on ethics of counselor self-care Includes case vignettes with discussion questions, self-assessment questions, glossary, and Instructor’s Manual

Wie geht man damit um, wenn die eigenen Kinder ganz anders sind als man selbst, was bedeutet das für sie und ihre Familien? Und wie akzeptieren wir und unsere Gesellschaft außergewöhnliche Menschen? Ein eindrucksvolles Buch über das Elternsein, über die Kraft der Liebe, aber auch darüber, was unsere Identität ausmacht. Der Bestsellerautor Andrew Solomon hat mit über 300 Familien gesprochen, deren Kinder außergewöhnlich oder hochbegabt sind, die das Down-Syndrom haben oder an Schizophrenie leiden, Autisten, taub oder kleinwüchsig sind. Ihre Geschichten sind einzigartig, doch ihre Erfahrungen des „Andersseins“ sind universell. Ihr Mut, ihre Lebensfreude und ihr Glück konfrontieren uns mit uns selbst und lassen niemanden unberührt. »Solomon hat eine Ideengeschichte geschrieben, die zur Grundlage einer Charta der psychologischen Grundrechte des 21. Jahrhunderts werden könnte... Erkenntnisse voller Einsicht, Empathie und Klugheit.« Eric Kandel »Das vielleicht größte Geschenk dieses monumentalen, so faktenreichen wie anrührenden Werks besteht darin, dass es zum permanenten Nachdenken anregt.« Philip Gourevitch »Dieses Buch schießt einem Pfeil um Pfeil ins Herz.« The New York Times »Dies ist eines der außergewöhnlichsten Bücher, die ich in letzter Zeit gelesen habe: mutig, einfühlsam und zutiefst menschlich... Seine Geschichten sind von meisterhafter Feinfühligkeit und Klarheit.« Siddhartha Mukherjee, Autor von ›Der König aller Krankheiten‹

Medical ethics, sociology and epidemiology rarely arouse one's passion and can, as minor subjects within a busy curriculum, find themselves ignored by vast swathes of students. However, recent times have seen not only a greater general understanding of these subjects but also a greater appreciation of their role within modern medical practice. In addition, these subjects are increasingly appearing in exams and, more importantly, they will crop up in every field and at every level of future working lives. In writing this book, the authors hope to provide a springboard from which students can develop a reasoned ethical approach to dilemmas as and when they present, both within their practice of medicine and in the exam situation. The sociology and public health sections aim to provide key information on the theories and studies that have helped to shape the practice of these disciplines - topics that are all too often unacknowledged by medical students and doctors alike. In doing so, the authors hope to provide the essential facts on these subjects without leaving readers to wade through irrelevant material. It is hoped that all students might begin to enjoy evidence (as well as experience)-based medicine and appreciate its importance regardless of the medical or surgical careers that they pursue. More than 80 line artworks, tables and boxes present clinical, diagnostic and practical information in an easy-to-follow manner Friendly and accessible approach to the subject makes learning especially easy Written by junior doctors for students - authors who understand exam pressures Contains ‘Hints and Tips’ boxes, and other useful aide-mémoires Succinct coverage of the subject enables ‘sharp focus’ and efficient use of time during exam preparation Contains a fully updated self-assessment section - ideal for honing exam skills and self-testing Self-assessment section fully updated to reflect current exam requirements Contains ‘common exam pitfalls’ as advised by faculty Crash Courses also available electronically!
