'[An] excellent book...an important source of learning, bringing clarity and insight into often isolated areas' - Counselling in Medical Settings (CMS) Journal 'Glyn Hudson-Allez's book is very well researched and clearly written...time-limited therapy is an effective and professional means of offering practical help and the book is highly recommended reading for all counsellors wishing to work in this way' - Family Practice As general practitioners are increasingly capping provision of counselling sessions, time-limited therapy skills are becoming ever-more important to counsellors working alongside GPs. Time-limited therapy provides a specific set of skills which enable counsellors to cope successfully with the large number and wide range of referrals they can receive in primary care settings. This book covers both difficulties commonly presented in primary care, such as anxiety, stress, bereavement and depression, and problems not usually considered appropriate for working within a time-limited framework - such as eating disorders, medical complaints and abuse: the author shows that clients with such problems can also be helped effectively.Integrating counselling skills with psychological knowledge, Glyn Hudson-Allez outlines the psychological and physical aspects of each problem and provides concise guidelines, with illustrative case studies, on how time-limited therapy can be used efficiently in each case. She also discusses the administration and evaluation of a counselling service within primary care.
"Lays out a holistic paradigm for advanced psychiatric nursing (APN) practice by drawing upon a neuroscience of information processing, human development, attachment theory, and trauma. . . (and) explains the essentials of psychotherapy by melding principles underlying the therapeutic alliance, adaptive information processing (AIP), change, and a hierarchically arranged treatment format that fosters healing through the resolution of dysfunctional memory this important text holds true to the historical basis for psychiatric nursing being organized around phases and principles of the nurse-patient relationship." -Margaret England, PhD, RN, CNS "Perspectives in Psychiatric Care" "Wheeler offers the field a scholarly training manual. . . grounded in Shapiro's (2001) adaptive information processing paradigm . . (where) the brain is viewed as an information processing system with innate self-healing mechanisms that regulate its internal environment to survive and to maintain a stable, constant condition through dynamic regulation." -Robert M. Greenfield, PhD "Journal of Trauma & Dissociation" This is a holistic, evidence-based approach to practicing psychotherapy for both the experienced and neophyte advanced practice nurse. Integrating neuroscience with psychotherapeutic theory, this award-winning text presents clear, step-by-step guidelines for techniques that reflect the wealth of experience garnered by Dr. Wheeler, an APN clinician of many years. The book unites disparate psychotherapeutic approaches into a model that is concise and straightforward, yet sufficiently comprehensive to provide a framework for practice that highlights the most useful models, principles, and techniques of psychotherapy. This second edition expands Peplau's interpersonal paradigm, validated by neuroscience and attachment research, from a two-person model to a more contemporary holistic perspective. It presents a practice framework that is based on relationship science and Adaptive Information Processing as an explanatory mechanism. The text educates APNs in the developmental and psychodynamic issues that are critical to accurate assessment and subsequent treatment. It also features several new chapters focusing on Motivational Interviewing, Integrating Complementary Modalities, Cognitive Processing Therapy for Trauma, EMDR, and Working with the Substance Abusing Client. The book features a hierarchical framework for treatment and is replete with case illustrations and practice examples. Also included are helpful communication techniques, assessment tools, and forms for practice. New topics in the second edition: Motivational Interviewing Peplau's Interpersonal Psychotherapy from a Holistic Perspective Integrating Complementary Modalities Cognitive Processing Therapy for Trauma Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Working with the Substance Abusing Client
The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of infusional 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), folinic acid and oxaliplatin (modified FOLFOX-6) in patients with advanced gastric cancer (AGC), as first-line palliative combination chemotherapy. We also analyzed the predictive or prognostic value of germline polymorphisms of candidate genes associated with 5-FU and oxaliplatin. Modified FOLFOX-6 chemotherapy appears to be active and well tolerated as first line chemotherapy in AGC patients. The 6-bp deletion in TS-3'UTR might be a candidate to select patients who are likely to benefit from 5-FU based modified FOLFOX-6 in future large scale trial. Proceeds from the sale of this book go to the support of an elderly disabled person.
