Women and mental disorders by Paula K Lundberg-Love( )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For too long, studies lumped women's mental health with that of men, notwithstanding profound differences. This work decisively addresses that oversight as a team of expert scholars and therapists spotlights common female mental disorders, explores the causes, and explains available therapies. Women in the United States are diagnosed with mental disorders at a far greater rate than men. Depression, anxiety, agoraphobia, and eating disorders appear to disproportionately strike women, as obviously do such female-only conditions as postpartum psychosis. Is it just that women are more likely to seek care and have their disorders recognized, or do the statistics reflect deeper disparities? In the last two decades, feminist therapists and scholars have called for new models of mental health that value women and femininity. To that end, the four-volume Women and Mental Disorders brings together recent research and theory to explore its subject from a feminist perspective. This set treats every aspect of women's mental health, from diagnoses to treatment. Underlying the entire work is an awareness of varying cultural definitions of mental health and the importance of understanding a woman's cultural background if treatment is to be respectful and successful. Special attention is also paid to women who have been victims of violence, whether in intimate relationships, the workplace, or at school, and to how these experiences impact mental and physical health, self-concept, interpersonal relationships, and career development. Approaches to treating women with eating disorders, agoraphobia, anxiety and depression, PTSD, and personality disorders are covered as well. Finally, the set provides resources to help readers address their own needs or those of friends and family."--Publisher
That's so gay! : microaggressions and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community by Kevin L Nadal( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"People who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) experience subtle forms of discrimination, also known as microaggressions. Microaggressions are commonplace interactions that occur in a wide variety of social settings, including school or the workplace, among friends and family, and even among other LGBT people. These accumulated experiences are associated with feelings of victimization, suicidal thinking, and higher rates of substance abuse, depression, and other health problems among members of the LGBT community. In this book, Kevin Nadal provides a thought-provoking review of the literature on discrimination and microaggressions toward LGBT people. The generous use of case examples makes the book ideal for gender studies courses and discussion groups. Each case is followed by analysis of the elements involved in microaggressions and discussion questions for the reader to reflect upon. This book includes advice for mental health practitioners, organizational leaders, educators, and students who want to adopt LGBT-accepting worldviews and practices. It has tips for how to discuss and advocate for LGBT issues in the realms of family, community, educational systems, and the government"--Publicity materials.

Filipinos in New York City by Kevin L Nadal( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the Spanish-American War in 1898, many Filipinos immigrated to New York City, mostly as students, enrolling at local institutions like Columbia University and New York University. Some arrived via Ellis Island as early as 1915, while Filipino military servicemen and Navy seafarers settled in New York after both World Wars I and II. After the Asian Immigration Act of 1965, many Filipinos came as professionals (e.g., nurses, physicians, and engineers) and formed settlements in various ethnic enclaves throughout the five boroughs of New York. Over the years, Filipinos have contributed significantly to New York arts and culture through Broadway theater, fashion, music, film, comedy, hip-hop, poetry, and dance. Filipino New Yorkers have also been successful entrepreneurs, corporate executives, community leaders, and politicians, and some, sadly, were victims of the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks

First coined by American psychiatrist Chester Pierce, microaggressions are often described as "brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults toward people of other races." This video provides twenty examples of microaggressions in everyday life. These include microaggressions based on race, disability, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, and religion. Several scenarios show how the intersections of multiple identities influence the types of microaggressions experienced. Dr. Nadal, Dr. Rivera, and Dr. Watkins engage in dialogue surrounding these microaggressions to better help viewers understand the complexity of these types of situations, as well as the difficulty in addressing these forms of subtle discrimination when they occur. They provide clinical insights and personal reactions to each scenario, as well as the multiple ways that people may feel or react to these microaggressions when they occur
