By John Marzillier

  • Paperback
  • £9.99

In this innovative and engaging book, Marzillier combines first-hand accounts from trauma sufferers with over forty years of clinical practice to provide an honest, human description of how trauma affects us

Despite how rare one-off traumatic events may seem, the statistics show that the majority of us are likely to experience such trauma at some point in our lives.

In this innovative and engaging book, Marzillier combines first-hand accounts from trauma sufferers with over forty years of clinical practice to provide an honest, human description of how trauma affects us at the time and also after the event. Whether discussing accounts of terrorist bombings, natural disasters, road accidents or physical attacks, he looks at what these experiences do to us and offers practical and consoling advice - for both sufferers and their loved ones - on coping with the experience and developing resilience for the future.

The Complete Guide to Overcoming Traumatic Stress (ebook bundle)

Ann Wetmore, Claudia Herbert, John Marzillier
Authors:
Ann Wetmore, Claudia Herbert, John Marzillier

Terrible events are very hard to deal with. Those who go through a catastrophic life experience, such as a car accident, assault, long-term abuse, an illness or bereavement, often feel permanently changed by the impact of what has happened. They become numb and shut off from those around them, or grief or guilt may constantly weigh them down. Memories of horrifying scenes may intrude unexpectedly during waking hours while sleep may be disturbed by vivid, unpleasant dreams. These two practical guides on trauma and how to cope with its aftermath are written by internationally recognise trauma experts.Overcoming Traumatic Stress - Claudia Herbert & Ann WetmoreBased on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), this self-help guide offers a step-by-step programme to help you to understand your traumatic experience and how it's affecting you, and to start to rebuild your life. Traumatic stress responses, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) result from a person's coping mechanisms having been completely overwhelmed by a terrible experience. 'Flashbacks' may be so severe that sufferers may feel that they are losing their sanity and subsequently become ever more isolated in their distress. To overcome the effects of trauma it is necessary to change those reactions and begin to see events in a different light. This book demonstrates, with practical advice and tested exercises, how to find new, effective ways of coping with, and finally overcoming traumatic stress.To Hell and Back - John MarzillierIn this innovative and engaging book, world-renowned psychologist John Marzillier dovetails first-hand accounts from trauma sufferers with over 40 years of clinical practice to provide an honest, human description of how trauma affects us at the time and also after the event.Whether discussing accounts of terrorist bombings, natural disasters, road accidents or physical attacks, he looks at what these experiences do to us and offers practical and consoling advice - for both sufferers and their loved ones - on coping with the experience and developing resilience for the future.

The Truth about Chronic Pain

Arthur Rosenfeld
Authors:
Arthur Rosenfeld

It's all in your head. "Learn to bear it." "That drug will make you a junkie."For the more than 75 million Americans affected by chronic pain, these are fighting words.Despite extraordinary medical progress in recent years, millions of people, debilitated by the pain of incurable cancer, crippling arthritis, unremitting headaches, and a host of degenerative disorders, continue to suffer needlessly. Here, in their own words, are the stories of more than forty people whose lives are dictated by pain-patients, healthcare professionals, ethicists, social commentators, and scientists-shining a powerful searchlight on America's most misunderstood health problem.The Truth About Chronic Pain reveals why pain is so often ignored or under-treated. Among the reasons are the widespread belief that pain is a sign of weakness and the unfounded fears that properly administered painkillers will cause addiction. As bureaucrats, doctors, and pharmacists become adversaries in the War on Drugs, people in pain are often denied the relief they need.The voices on these pages are an eloquent testament to individual courage and a powerful plea to medical institutions, political leaders, and insurance companies to implement effective solutions to the problem of pain.

Feeding Your Child - The Brazelton Way

Joshua Sparrow, T. Berry Brazelton
Authors:
Joshua Sparrow, T. Berry Brazelton

Nursing newborns, picky toddlers, four-year-olds with bizarre food preferences-at every age, parents are concerned with what their children eat. In this indispensable, straight-to-the-point guide, Brazelton and Sparrow follow the same approach of the earlier three very successful books in this series. First they apply the Touchpoints philosophy to feeding (watch for the setbacks that often come before a leap of progress), then they follow feeding progress age by age, and finally they deal with the most common issues: breast or bottle, weaning, basic nutritional needs, the over-involved parent, food battles, adolescent overeating, and the roots of eating disorders. Mealtimes can be fun, healthy, family times-the Brazelton Way.

Written in consultation with a leading oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering centre in Manhattan and based on practical advice gleaned from the front lines of the author's physical-therapy practice, The Healing Power of Movement will be recommended and empowering reading for all cancer patients, whether they are undergoing chemotherapy or radiation, or are recovering from surgery.

The Antibiotic Paradox

Stuart B Levy
Authors:
Stuart B Levy

In this totally revised and updated edition of the classic primer on the misuse of antibiotics, Dr. Stuart Levy reveals how our cavalier and naïve attitude about the power of antibiotics can have -and already has had-dire consequences. He explains that we are currently witnessing a massive evolutionary change in bacteria. This build-up of new antibiotic-resistant bacteria in individuals and the environment, mixed with our overzealous use of antibiotic soaps and the unregulated dispensing of antibiotics worldwide, is leading us into a dangerous territory where our "miracle" drugs will no longer help.
