Plural Publishing
Free sample

Often, books on neurogenic language disorders view individuals with these disorders as a homogeneous group--ethnically, culturally, and linguistically. Adult Neurogenic Language Disorders: Assessment and Treatment. A Comprehensive Ethnobiological Approach, Second Edition examines how the country's ever-changing demographics require sensitivity and competency in clinicians treating individuals from diverse backgrounds, and also how those demographics relate to health disparities.

As in the previous edition, this second edition addresses the three key disorders that affect adults: language/cognitive disorders associated with dementia, language/cognitive disorders associated with traumatic brain injury, and aphasia and right-hemisphere disorders.

This new edition includes updated and expanded information on the following topics:

Types, prevalence, and assessment of neurogenic language disordersEducating and counseling patients and their familiesNew technologies and new therapies available for treatmentClinician resources with literature and Internet sources

Another new feature to this edition is the companion website, which provides PowerPoint lectures with illustrations for each chapter, a total of 100 multiple-choice questions, and associated instructor answer keys.

Several pedagogical features are also included in this text:

Study questions at the end of each chapterIllustrations of site(s) of lesions, abnormal cell inclusions, and other neuropathologies in types of dementia, neuropathologies of head trauma, and strokeReference tables that compare the dementias, aphasias, and traumatic brain injuries and characteristics of associated language/cognitive disordersUpdated glossary of terms and updated references

This much-needed text illustrates the impact of cultural and ethnic diversity in neurogenic language disorders on medical speech-language pathology caseloads.

This book provides professionals in speech-language pathology and audiology with tools to assist and support family caregivers of persons with communication disorders. It is intended for speech-language pathologists and audiologists who provide intervention for adults with chronic or disabling conditions.

Family caregivers are those who provide continuous, unpaid care to family members and friends who are unable to care for themselves. Caregivers can be trained by speech-language pathologists and audiologist to augment goals established to remediate communication disorders and can be instrumental in motivating clients to complete a program of therapy. However, family caregivers are themselves vulnerable to a number of debilitating conditions as a result of the physical and emotional toll that daily caregiving can take. The stressors are well documented, including the development of chronic diseases, premature death, fatigue, and depression. In addition, caregivers and their coping styles differ according to cultural expectations, and these differences are described in detail here. Supporting Family Caregivers of Adults With Communication Disorders is needed as a resource for clinicians who provide education and counseling to adult patients and their families.

Key Features:

* Detailed description of stressors that affect family caregivers

* Questionnaires and survey instruments to help clinicians recognize the signs of caregiver fatigue and distress

* Resource information to support caregivers and engage them in the goals and objectives of intervention

* Information on caregiver resources that specialize in support areas such as transportation to and from the clinic, financial literacy, respite care, meals, end of life care, advance directives, and home health services

 How does Deaf culture fit into education, psychology, cultural studies, technology and the arts? Deaf Culture: Exploring Deaf Communities in the United States addresses this through both theoretical and practical information. With the recognition of American Sign Language (ASL) as a bona fide language, the perception of Deaf people has evolved into the recognition of a vibrant Deaf culture centered around the use of signed languages and the communities of Deaf people.

This text also describes how rapid advances in technology, including the Internet as well as new visual and auditory technologies, have not only created opportunities for Deaf people to influence how technology can be used, but additionally has become a powerful force in influencing the behavior of Deaf individuals within diverse national and international societies. This has created opportunities for incorporating diversity and international perspectives into Deaf culture. Within each chapter are multiple vignettes, examples, pictures, and stories to enhance content interest for readers and facilitate instructor teaching. Theories are introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner to ensure understanding, and clear examples are provided to illustrate concepts.

In addition, students of American Sign Language and Deaf studies will find an introduction to possible opportunities for professional and informal involvement with ASL/Deaf culture children and adults. Deaf Culture fills a unique niche as an introductory text that is accessible and straightforward for those beginning their studies of the Deaf-World.

Key Features:

* Strong focus on including different communities within Deaf culture
* Thought-provoking questions, illustrative vignettes, and examples
* Theories introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner
* Written by Deaf and hearing authors with extensive teaching experience and immersion in ASL and Deaf culture

The leading reference and text on the increasingly relevant and important topic of caring for underserved patients and those with highly unique health requirements

The timely publication of Medical Management of Vulnerable and Underserved Patients: Principles, Practice and Populations, Second Edition is designed to clarify current issues and instruct you in best practices and compliance with legislation, such as the Affordable Care Act, when caring for patients living with chronic diseases in poor and minority populations. How do these laws affect you, your practice, and patient care?


Medical Management of Vulnerable and Underserved Patients is ideally suited for clinical and educational programs and policy-oriented institutions concerned with addressing health disparities and caring for the underserved and vulnerable patient. Comprehensive in scope and authored by many of the leading names in the field, the book takes complex concepts and issues and helps you understand them, resulting in a “roadmap” to guide real-world applications and compliance with the terms of the law. Each chapter integrates key concepts, core competencies, and common pitfalls and concludes with useful lists of web resources and stimulating discussion questions.


From the reviews of the First Edition:
"This book is an ambitious and important contribution to the care of our most wounded patients. For those of us who regularly care for vulnerable patients, it provides an excellent resource and supportive guide. However, it should also become part of the standard library for all medical students and practicing physicians. All physicians have much to learn from the practical, evidence-based approaches to the societal issues we all face in practice. Ultimately, this is a book that could help all clinicians take better care of all patients, especially those who may need extra help and support as they navigate our complex health care system." -- New England Journal of Medicine
