This book presents an authoritative overview of the emerging field of person-centered psychiatry. This perspective, articulating science and humanism, arose within the World Psychiatric Association and aims to shift the focus of psychiatry from organ and disease to the whole person within their individual context. It is part of a broader person-centered perspective in medicine that is being advanced by the International College of Person-Centered Medicine through the annual Geneva Conferences held since 2008 in collaboration with the World Medical Association, the World Health Organization, the International Council of Nurses, the International Federation of Social Workers, and the International Alliance of Patients’ Organizations, among 30 other international health institutions.In this book, experts in the field cover all aspects of person-centered psychiatry, the conceptual keystones of which include ethical commitment; a holistic approach; a relationship focus; cultural sensitivity; individualized care; establishment of common ground among clinicians, patients, and families for joint diagnostic understanding and shared clinical decision-making; people-centered organization of services; and person-centered health education and research.

Psychiatric diagnosis is one of the most important topics within the broad field of psychiatry. Clear, accurate definitions of the various disorders are essential for clinicians around the world to be confident that they are classifying patients in the same way, thereby enabling comparisons of treatment regimens and their outcomes. There are two major classification systems in use, one produced by the World Health Organization, the WHO International Classification of Diseases, Mental Disorders Chapter, and one by the American Psychiatric Association, the well known Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Both of these are being revised so this book from the prestigious World Psychiatric Association is especially timely.

In this book, leading experts in the field provide a broad and integrated coverage of the concepts, structure and context of psychiatric diagnosis. It begins by addressing mental health and illness around the world from historical, philosophical and cultural perspectives. Health is approached comprehensively, to include such aspects as resilience, resources and quality of life. The book then covers major specific psychopathology topics in Section II, including new categorizations and dimensional approaches. Section III concentrates on the complex problem of comorbidity, a primary challenge for modern diagnostic classifications in psychiatry. Finally, Section IV reviews emerging international diagnostic systems in psychiatry, considering innovative models and adaptations.

This book will be essential reading for anyone involved in the diagnosis of psychiatric disorders.

For generations, doctors have been diagnosing babies with colic, offering little comfort and few solutions to worried, weary parents. But recent medical advances made through cutting-edge technology now reveal that many if not most cases of colic are actually caused by acid reflux. In this revolutionary book, Bryan Vartabedian, a noted pediatric gastroenterologist and the father of two babies with acid reflux, provides hands-on, practical advice about this hidden epidemic–and how to make your own baby happy again.

• Recognize the seven signs of reflux in infancy.
• Discover the role of milk protein allergy–the other colic.
• Learn what, when, and how to feed an irritable baby and the best positions for sleep.
• Recognize the role of formula, breast milk, bottle systems, burping, and pacificers in your baby’s fussiness, and irritability.
• Understand when and why your baby may need testing for reflux.
Weigh the pros and cons of available treatment options.
Identify when a specialist is needed and where to find one.

Complete with inspiring real-life cases of colic solved, plus tips, sidebars, and illustrations, this essential guide provides real answers to a problem that has been upsetting babies–and parents–for years. Help and hope are at hand!

“This is the book for every parent whose young baby is a ‘bundle of misery,’ in pain, and hard to feed, and for that baby’s pediatrician, too.”
–Laura Nathanson, M.D., F.A.A.P., author of The Portable Pediatrician

“Great news for exhausted parents and for suffering babies! Colic Solved gets to the root of what is making many babies cry, and offers powerful, real-world solutions. This is a must-have book for desperate parents everywhere.”

Au centre des préoccupations scientifiques et sociales, l’empathie interroge la capacité à reconnaître le semblable au-delà du différent. Définie comme la capacité de se mettre à la place de l’autre, cette notion suscite un intérêt renouvelé, au carrefour de la philosophie, des neurosciences, de la psychologie cognitive et de la psychanalyse.

Ce que l’empathie incarne, c’est l’ambiguïté même de la notion d’esprit.

Des intervenants prestigieux, d’horizons différents, se sont réunis lors du Colloque de Cerisy, afin de débattre sur ce sujet. Ils se sont appuyés sur ce que pouvait apporter la diversité des modèles théoriques de ces différentes disciplines à ce concept source de polémique.

L’empathie est ainsi évoquée dans de nombreuses situations chez l’homme, pour la création d’instruments de transmission de l’émotion ou du sens, pour la reconnaissance et le soulagement de la souffrance de l’autre, la compréhension de ce qui fait communauté sociale pour la transmission des valeurs, l’influence sur les individus ou les collectifs.

La découverte récente des neurones miroirs et les nombreuses recherches qui lui ont succédé en neurosciences ont ouvert une nouvelle voie dans l’explication du « fossé de la transmission » entre soi et autrui.
L’empathie offrirait-elle une piste pour comprendre la complexité de l’humain à partir de l’exploitation cognitive et psychique de la mécanique cérébrale ?

Cet ouvrage intéressera les psychiatres, les psychologues, les thérapeutes, les philosophes mais aussi les chercheurs en neurosciences et sciences humaines.

 

This book is about the evolution and nature of cooperation and altruism in social-living animals, focusing especially on non-human primates and on humans. Although cooperation and altruism are often thought of as ways to attenuate competition and aggression within groups, or are related to the action of “selfish genes”, there is increasing evidence that these behaviors are the result of biological mechanisms that have developed through natural selection in group-living species. This evidence leads to the conclusion that cooperative and altruistic behavior are not just by-products of competition but are rather the glue that underlies the ability for primates and humans to live in groups. The anthropological, primatological, paleontological, behavioral, neurobiological, and psychological evidence provided in this book gives a more optimistic view of human nature than the more popular, conventional view of humans being naturally and basically aggressive and warlike. Although competition and aggression are recognized as an important part of the non-human primate and human behavioral repertoire, the evidence from these fields indicates that cooperation and altruism may represent the more typical, “normal”, and healthy behavioral pattern. The book is intended both for the general reader and also for students at a variety of levels (graduate and undergraduate): it aims to provide a compact, accessible, and up-to-date account of the current scholarly advances and debates in this field of study, and it is designed to be used in teaching and in discussion groups. The book derived from a conference sponsored by N.S.F., the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, the Washington University Committee for Ethics and Human Values, and the Anthropedia Foundation for the study of well-being.
