Culture, Heritage, and Diversity in Older Adult Mental Health Care
Maria Llorente. APA Council on Geriatric Psychiatry
Health care organizations are beginning to recognize the importance of cultural competence as it relates to efficiency, quality, and equity in the delivery of care within a competitive health care market, and Culture, Heritage, and Diversity in Older Adult Mental Health Care is designed to train mental health clinicians to deliver culturally sensitive care to an increasingly diverse patient population. Projections indicate that 35% of patients older than age 65 will be from a racial or ethnic minority group by 2050, compared with 11% in 1970. Today's mental health practitioners require knowledge, sensitivity, and an understanding of institutionalized practices and systems that undermine their patients' health and well-being.

Managing the Side Effects of Psychotropic Medications, 2nd Edition
Joseph F. Goldberg, Carrie L. Ernst
Where other psychopharmacology textbooks and, indeed, most internships and residencies in psychiatry lack a solid basis in primary care medicine, Managing the Side Effects of Psychotropic Medications bridges that educational gap, offering a thorough examination of all the effects of taking a psychotropic drug, as well practical clinical advice on how to manage complications that arise.
This second edition of the guide features updated information about newer psychotropic agents, as well as new drugs to help manage iatrogenic weight gain, metabolic dysregulation, involuntary movement disorders, and other common problems. New tables and figures have also been added to aid rapid assessment and management, and the self-assessment section has been updated and expanded with more key questions to facilitate knowledge retention.
Pathologies of Love and Hate
Susan Hatters Friedman, Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry
Drawing on real-life cases as well as research data, Family Murder: Pathologies of Love and Hate distills the current psychiatric knowledge of different forms of murder within the family. Although crimes of this sort have made headlines for decades -- and although violence and homicide within the family are public health issues -- little guidance exists in the research literature for mental health professionals who treat these families or for the child protection workers and lawyers who interact with them.
This book offers a unique framework for examining the various types of family murder -- delving into the commonalities, the differences, and society's misconceptions and providing readers with a comprehensive guide to begin to understand these tragedies.
Clinical Manual for Assessment and Treatment of Suicidal Patients, 2nd Edition
John A. Chiles, Kirk D. Strosahl, Laura Weiss Roberts
Since the first edition of Clinical Manual for Assessment and Treatment of Suicidal Patients was published in 2005, advances have been made that increase our understanding of suicidal and self-destructive behavior. Although clinicians cannot unerringly predict which patients will die by suicide, they can focus more successfully on early identification of suicidal behavior and effective intervention, and this new edition of the clinical manual thoroughly explores not only assessment of suicidality but what comes after an at-risk patient has been identified. The authors argue that treating specific psychiatric disorders is not enough to prevent suicide, and they offer clinicians the necessary information and strategies to bridge that gap. The authors' main premise is that suicide is a dangerous and short-term problem-solving behavior designed to regulate or eliminate intense emotional pain -- a quick fix where a long-term effective solution is needed -- and this understanding is the underpinning of the assessment and treatment strategies the authors recommend.

Subjective Refraction and Prescribing Glasses
The Number One (or Number Two) Guide to Practical Techniques and Principles, 3rd Edition
Richard J. Kolker
Basic refraction is a foundational part of ophthalmology, and yet beginning ophthalmology residents and ophthalmic technicians are often left on their own to learn the finer points.

This updated Third Edition has been expanded in every section with thoughtful, practical advice, and has case scenarios, in a question and answer format, of situations encountered with real-world patients. It is the most comprehensive review of clinical subjective refraction to date.
Nurturing Wellness in Childhood to Promote Lifelong Health
Andrew Garner, Robert A Saul
Childhood experiences can affect a person’s lifelong health. Thinking Developmentally presents a clinical framework for understanding the impact of toxic stress and both adverse and affiliative childhood experiences on development. It makes a compelling case that many diseases of adulthood are not adult-onset, but rather adult-manifest, based on genetic and epigenetic consequences from early childhood experiences. Garner and Saul examine the needs of children and the role of parents, caregivers, the community, and medical practitioners in ensuring that children have safe, stable, and nurturing relationships. They explore community empowerment and offer suggestions for applying developmental science to help bring about healthy children, nurturing families, and caring communities.

Diagnosis and Staging of Lung Cancer
A Minimally Invasive Approach
Manoop S. Bhutani, Stephen Swisher, Jeremy Erasmus;Jr., Joseph B. Zwischenberger
There have been many recent advances in the last decade for minimally invasive image guided techniques for diagnosis and staging of lung cancer such as VATS (video assisted thoracic surgery), endoscopic ultrasound with fine needle aspiration and endobronchial ultrasound with fine needle aspiration. Today's clinicians that take care of patients with known or suspected lung cancer have a panel of image-guided techniques available to them. The application as well as sequential selection of these techniques for optimal diagnosis and staging can get confusing. This handbook will describe the pros the pros and cons of various (newer as well as traditional) minimally invasive techniques, their interplay, complementary advantages, suggested algorithms for application of these techniques. It will guide the clinician to answering the many unanswered questions as well as directions for future research. The handbook will be very timely for thoracic surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, pulmonologists, radiologists and any other physician or allied health professional (Physician Assistants, Nurse Clinicians, Advanced Practice Nurses etc.) involved in the care of patients with lung cancer. The editors of the book will be from disciplines of medicine, surgery and radiology providing their varied expertise and balance in creating this work.

An Athletic Trainer’s Guide to Sports Nutrition fills the void of a subject area that is underrepresented in current athletic trainer curriculums despite its importance in the field.
Damon Amato has created a text that can be easily read and understood by health care professionals yet is in-depth enough to create a solid understanding of how the body works, and easy enough to then pass on the information to athletes to help them eat ideally based on their specific sport, goal, and situation.
Giving a physiology background is necessary to lay the foundation for understanding why certain recommendations in the text are given; however, only the necessary details are included to focus on what is pertinent for athletic trainers to understand while advising athletes.
