Terapia metacognitiva dei disturbi d'ansia e della depressione

Adrian Wells

editore: Erickson

pagine: 304

Questo volume, scritto in uno stile chiaro e pragmatico che ne rende la consultazione e l'applicazione particolarmente semplici, illustra nel dettaglio teoria e pratica della terapia metacognitiva: un approccio che si colloca nell'ambito della terza generazione delle terapie cognitivo-comportamentali e che vanta crescenti evidenze empiriche di efficacia. Adrian Wells mostra come il disagio emozionale non dipenda tanto dal contenuto dei pensieri negativi, come postulava la terapia cognitiva standard, quanto da come le persone reagiscono ad essi con strategie disfunzionali, quali la ruminazione e la rimuginazione, in base alle proprie credenze metacognitive. Scopo della terapia diventa quindi quello di aiutare il paziente a sviluppare una nuova e più funzionale relazione con i propri eventi interni, quali pensieri, emozioni e sensazioni negative. Passando in rassegna le strategie e le tecniche proprie di questo approccio per il trattamento dei singoli disturbi d'ansia e della depressione - tra cui il dialogo socratico, gli esperimenti comportamentali, l'esposizione metacognitiva, il training attentivo e la detached mindful-ness - il manuale si propone come risorsa valida e preziosa per i clinici che si occupano di queste problematiche.

The Heart of Leonardo

Francis C. Wells

editore: Springer

pagine: 256

This book contains all of Leonardo Da Vinci's drawings on the heart and its physiology, accompanied by re-translations of all of the associated notes. All Leonardo's drawings have been interpreted in the light of modern knowledge by a practicing cardiac clinician and anatomist. The veracity of his work is proven against contemporary dissections of cardiac structure and comparison of his illustrations with contemporary images generated by Magnetic Resonance scanners and high definition ultrasound will astound the reader. Perhaps the most interesting element is the re-dissection of the Ox heart set against Leonardo’s own drawings. His place in the greater scheme of anatomical development will be put into context with his ideas of man’s place in the microcosm/macrocosm continuum.

Le balle di Darwin. Guida politicamente scorretta al darwinismo e al disegno intelligente

Jonathan Wells

editore: Rubbettino

pagine: 287

Stanchi dei soliti libri su Darwin? Ecco il primo libro contro Darwin! Un libro che vi racconterà quello che il vostro insegnante di scienze probabilmente non vi ha mai detto. Lo sapevate che molte prove che sono state finora addotte a supporto della teoria darwiniana sono state accettate acriticamente da tutti gli scienziati evoluzionisti senza verificarne l'attendibilità? Lo sapevate che i fossili non ci consentono di trarre alcuna conclusione certa sull'evoluzione delle specie? Perché l'evoluzionismo non ha trovato finora applicazione nel campo della medicina? E se il darwinismo fosse diventato una mera ideologia e strenuamente difeso proprio in quanto ideologia indiscutibile e da accettare quasi come verità di fede? E se il disegno intelligente fosse molto di più che un'ipotesi utile agli uomini di fede? E se fosse una teoria che riesce a spiegare le complessità del mondo vivente, anche a livello molecolare, meglio delle "mutazioni casuali" postulate dall'evoluzionismo?

Pulmonary Imaging

Contributions to Key Clinical Questions

Athol Wells, Sujal R. Desai
e altri

editore: Informa Healthcare

pagine: 220

Unlike other texts of imaging for clinicians, Pulmonary Imaging seeks not to teach the physician or surgeon about the radiologic signs of pulmonary disease but rather inform about the value of the various imaging tests in different clinical scenarios. Accordingly, each chapter is written by a clinician and radiologist: the basic ethos is that the clinician identifies the common problem-areas and questions faced in a given field of pulmonology and that the radiologist attempts to critically define the role, if any, of the different imaging studies. Pulmonary Imaging will be valued by physicians and surgeons who regularly investigate and manage patients with pulmonary disease. There is little doubt that imaging tests are vital in the investigation of respiratory disease. However, because of the staggering advances in imaging technology, the practicing physician or surgeon is often faced with a wide range of potential radiologic tests. Moreover, it is fair to state that the evidence-base for the utility of some tests in specific clinical scenarios sometimes lags behind the enthusiasm and adoption in practice. Indeed, it has become apparent to many thoracic radiologists that, in certain clinical settings, the more sophisticated radiologic techniques (e.g. multidetector row CT) probably have little to offer over the more traditional modalities, such as plain radiography. The main aim of Pulmonary Imaging: Contributions to Key Clinical Questions is to inform the reader about the value of various imaging tests in different clinical scenarios, based on the available evidence. Each chapter is co-authored by a physician and radiologist with the former defining the key clinical questions which arise in a specific setting and the radiologist outlining the role of imaging tests, if any, in answering these questions. It is hoped that this critical approach to radiologic tests will appeal not only to physicians and surgeons but also to radiologists who must regularly manage patients with respiratory disease.

Supportive Care in Radiotherapy

Mary Wells, Sara Faithfull

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 418

More than 50 per cent of people with cancer have radiotherapy at some time during their illness, yet their needs for supportive care have received little attention compared with the needs of patients undergoing other types of cancer treatment. Unlike other texts, which concentrate on the planning and delivery of radiotherapy, this book addresses the impact of treatment on the individual and the issues facing health carers who provide clinical and supportive care."Supportive Care in Radiotherapy" integrates key aspects of assessment, physical and psychosocial morbidity and toxicity management, placing these in the physical, psychosocial and organisational context in which they occur. Patients' perspectives are used throughout the text to illustrate the physical and emotional experience of radiotherapy and the difficulties facing patients who are in transition through the system. New and innovative approaches to patient care are discussed as well as challenges facing radiotherapy practitioners today.Practical advice on the assessment and clinical management of acute and late side effects is provided. Critical reviews of the current evidence base are included, along with future directions for clinical research and development. Written by a multi-professional group of authors, this book is aimed primarily at nurses and therapy radiographers but is also relevant to hospital and community doctors and nurses who encounter patients before, during and after radiotherapy. The book will be suitable for undergraduates and postgraduates, as it relates current research findings and theory to the clinical practice environment, within the context of cancer care delivery in the 21st century.
