Recrafting a Life : Coping with Chronic Illness and Pain. by Johnson, Charles.(DLC)1746807; Webster, Denise.;
Recrafting A Life Solutions For Chronic Pain and illness -- Copyright -- Contents -- Foreword -- Acknowledgments -- Chapter 1 Introduction and Overview of the Book -- Part I Theory -- Chapter 2 Becoming a Worthy Companion: Clarifying and Refining a Philosophy of Care -- Chapter 3 Caring and Self-Care -- Chapter 4 Creating a Meaningful Life -- Part II Therapy -- Chapter 5 Stages of Recrafting a Life -- Chapter 6 The First Meeting: Exploring the Landscape: The Solution-Focused Approach -- Chapter 7 Solution Building -- Chapter 8 Recrafting Consciousness: Clinical Hypnosis for Pain and Chronic Illness -- Chapter 9 Suggestive Therapeutics: Hypnotic and Posthypnotic Suggestions to Treat Chronic Pain and Illness -- Chapter 10 Caring for the Caregiver -- Chapter 11 Experiments in Self-Care -- Index.Chronic illness and pain are now, more than ever, seen asas major problems in the current health care system. Because they are unresponsive to both antibiotics and surgery, theyr are seen as elusive and mysterious. The National Medical Expenditure Survey estimates that over 80 million U.S. citizens live with a chronic illness. The most prevalent are arthritis, diabetes, respiratory diseases, hypertension and mental illness. This book uses the novel Robinson Crusoe as an archetypal metaphor for the patients who must learn to survive on their own isolated "island" of chronic pain. This unique style is combined with a variety of in-session approaches and other tools which clients have found helpful in identifying their goals and progress. By emphasizing the importance of self-care the authors hope to diminish the sense of helplessness felt by the both the patients their loved ones.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: Research and Clinical Significance -- Name Index -- Subject Index.In Volume 2 of Current Thinking and Research in Brief Therapy the author's consideration of Ericksonian-influenced brief therapy continues. Presently, there is a concern among those in the psychotherapy profession who worry that this area of science will become heartless. Others are equally concerned that their hearts not become science-less in the future. In this volume, the authors respect both viewpoints and attempt to weave these notions together. Throughout this book, different types of emotions in psychotherapy unfold. For instance, Harry Aponte presents a thoughtful piece on the issue of client-therapy intimacy, while Doug Flemons and Shelley Green, a married couple, share a humorous yet sensitive article on sexual concerns in couples, and finally, Daniel Handel provides a powerful story of the use of hypnosis with a dying adolescent. In addition to the emotional side of psychotherapy, the authors include the scientific aspects of psychotherapy. A discussion about various models of brief therapy is given, emphasizing that the therapeutic effects of the treatment models are attributable to "the non-treatment specifics" of the therapeutic interaction. A review of empirical data on the key elements of Ericksonian hypnosis and the social-psychological aspect of Ericksonian hypnosis are discussed as well. Finally, an important, and perhaps controversial, essay on ethics in the general non-therapeutic use of hypnosis by lawyers and its use in recovering memories is presented.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.

In his new book, Giorgio Nardone performs another quantum leap, leading his readers to a more operative knowledge of the precise logic of therapeutic change. Most intimidating mental disorders are based on perceptions of reality that when using an ordinary 'common-sense' logic as our reading lens, look as if they are irrational

His own private practice is one where he rarely sees clients more than one or two times. Clients know in advance that this is the way that he works, and so their expectation is that during this session they are going to get down to the hard stuff. This means working as if each session were the last one. So, this book is about all of the things that are designed to work in a single-session mode.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.

And as the author points out in this collection of essays and interviews, some of these stories are better than others. This book is an investigation into which might be the better stories and how they can help clients reach their goals in therapy. This book contains fifteen essays and interviews written or co-written by Michael Hoyt. The collection represents Dr. Hoyt's recent thinking on helping clients with the brief, future-orientated therapeutic approaches.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.
