Teach effective problem-solving programs for nonprofessional cancer patient caregivers who have a limited knowledge of the disease! Family caregivers are often uninformed about what they should do with family members with cancer; they are unskilled in carrying out caregiver duties and are emotionally involved as well. The Application to Problem-Solving Therapy to Psychosocial Oncology Care will help novices and expert professionals in the areas of nursing, social work, psychology, ministry, and cancer support programs learn how to introduce problem-solving concepts that can benefit cancer patients and families in counseling sessions, formal education programs, or in everyday clinical practice.

Cognitive therapy is a well known and widely used means of helping depressed patients, but is only now beginning to be extended to other client groups. Cognitive Therapy for Learning Disability contains contributions from well known and highly experienced practitioner researchers about the theoretical and practical issues surrounding the application of cognitive therapy to this special client group. Since cognitive therapy is usually understood to consist mainly of talking and introspection, the communication difficulties, challenging behaviours and the whole question of self-regulation make CBT for learning disabled people a challenging and fascinating topic. Cognitive Therapy for Learning Disability provides a wealth of practical examples for training and will be invaluable to clinical psychologists, psychiatrists and all researchers and practitioners who deal with learning disabled people in their daily lives.

Evidence based or empirically supported psychotherapies are becoming more and more important in the mental health fields as the users and financers of psychotherapies want to choose those methods whose effectiveness are empirically shown. Cognitive-behavioral psychotherapies are shown to have empirical support in the treatment of a wide range of psychological/psychiatric problems. As a cognitive-behavioral mode of action, Problem Solving Therapy has been shown to be an effective psychotherapy approach in the treatment and/or rehabilitation of persons with depression, anxiety, suicide, schizophrenia, personality disorders, marital problems, cancer, diabetes-mellitus etc. Mental health problems cause personal suffering and constitue a burden to the national health systems. Scientific evidence show that effective problem solving skills are an important source of resiliency and individuals with psychological problems exhibit a deficiency in effective problem solving skills. Problem solving therapy approach to the treatment and/or rehabilitation of emotional problems assumes that teaching effective problem solving skills in a therapeutic relationship increases resiliency and alleviates psychological problems.The book, in the first chapters, gives information on problem solving and the role of problem-solving in the etiology and the treatment of different forms of mental health problems. In the later chapters, it concentrates on psychotherapy, assessment and procedures of problem solving therapy. At the end it provides a case study. Provides a comprehensive appreciation of problem solving therapy Contains empirical evidence and applied focus for problem solving therapy which provides a scientific base and best practices Highlights the problem solving difficulties of persons with specific disorders

The text covers communications, counseling, interviewing, motivating clients, delivering oral presentations and using media in presentations. Communication is basic to the relationship that the Registered Dietitian (RD) professional has with their clients. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recognizes the importance of communication skills for practitioners to promote health, disease prevention and treatment. Providing people with information on what to eat is not enough, the RD must also promote and facilitate behavior changes to more healthful food choices. The text incorporates the Nutrition Care Process (NCP) and model, including four steps of nutrition assessment, nutrition diagnosis using PES statement (Problem, Etiology and Signs/Symptoms), nutrition intervention, and nutrition monitoring and evaluation. The PES statements are the most critical in that the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has been stressing this as an essential component of their standards and requirements. The text uses activities, case studies, self assessment questions, web references and graphics to engage the student and drive the content home.

The techniques described here are the familiar ones of establishing contracts and contigencies and training in communication and problem-solving skills. As the reader will see, these techniques are eminently teachable. The fact that they are described here and that they are teachable suggests that clinical technology has stepped forward a long way from the arcane mysteries which characterized psychotherapy efforts in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The aspect of this work which sets it clearly in the forefront is the emphasis upon soft clinical skills as being a necessary .
