Doors close, doors open : widows, grieving, and growing by Morton A Lieberman( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Doors Close, Doors Open is based on Morton Lieberman's interviews with seven hundred widows and widowers over the course of seven years. In this book he shares the wisdom he has gained, retelling women's stories about the pain and anger and challenges they face in the first few months of being widowed. But most important, Lieberman has made discoveries that expose many of the pernicious myths about widows, and discloses the surprising sources of help for women and the fact that there is light at the end of the tunnel. The vast majority of women, after a painful time, found themselves flourishing - living different but satisfying lives, and changing and growing in ways they never could have dreamed of. This is a book that offers comfort and consolation by understanding so much of what so many women go through and by revealing the truth about widows: that women of all ages have the ability to respond to tragedy, to deal effectively with challenges, and to realize new ways to live and be well."--Jacket

Psychotherapeutic change through the group process by Dorothy Stock Whitaker( )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Psychotherapeutic Change through the Group Process discusses the relation between the properties of groups and therapeutic change. The purpose is to develop a view of groups that accounts for the diversity, complexity, and fluidity of the group situation. The view examines the group in depth, attending not only to overt events, but also to covert aspects of specific situations. The work addresses manifest behaviors, underlying motivations; and the cognitive, rational aspects of the groupages It explores the intense affect which may be generated under conditions of group interaction; not merely to the group or individual, but to the individual in the group and to the group as the context for personal experience and change. The research presented here was initially explored in small group studies. Separate investigations considered the ways in which patients and therapists view group events, the nature of deviation, and the development of group standards. They consider factors associated with therapeutic improvement and therapeutic failure; and characteristic concerns of early sessions. These, plus several discussions of theory and methodology have been published separately. The authors' working procedure has been to study intensively a relatively small number of groups, relying upon careful observation of natural groups rather than upon laboratory experimentation. The overall effort has been to understand the processes of therapy groups in all their clinical richness and intricacy and yet to impose a scientific discipline and control on our analyses. This has meant a continuing attempt to develop appropriate analytic procedures so that clinical analyses can be as firmly rooted as possible in concrete data and reproducible methods. This book is a unique effort at the scientific grounding of social work practice."--Provided by publisher

Self-Help Groups Implications for the Elderly by Morton A Lieberman( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A recent review of published and unpublished data suggests that the elderly are underrepresented in most self-help groups. Some national groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous do serve the aged but many others such as widow groups do not. A recent national survey of over 3,000 households conducted by Mellinger and Balter examined the use of psychotropic medication and the help-seeking patterns of troubled respondents. A secondary analysis of the Mellinger-Balter data was conducted to examine patterns of participation in self-help groups by the elderly, the effectiveness of self-help groups, and the differential patterns of participation based on problem or disease to determine what types of groups are most successful in serving the elderly. Critical policy issues raised by these analyses involve the following: (1) the relative value of age-homogeneous groups when compared with age-heterogeneous groups; (2) the best forms of legitimization of self-help groups; and (3) the role of the professional service system. These findings have implications for the different strategies of generating and maintaining self-help groups including professional transfer models, financial aid, and consultation models. A reference list and 15 data tables are appended. (Author/ABL)

Therapeutic Norms and Patient Benefit: Cancer Patients in Professionally Directed Support Groups by Morton A Lieberman( )

1 edition published in 2004 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study examines the relationship between cancer support groups’ normative regulation and patient outcomes. Cancer patients (N 289) in 54 groups were studied through the use of a cross-sectional, treatment dosage design. Outcomes were assessed by the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale and the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy, a quality of life measure commonly used in studies of cancer patients. The framework for assessing normative regulations was based on the degree to which patients matched leader norms. This approach to indexing members’ perceptions of normative regulations proved to be a successful strategy. The more a participant view matched those of the leaders, the greater the likelihood they benefited from the group. The content of the norms added an independent effect on positive outcomes. Participants who saw their groups as approving of aggressive– competitive behaviors and the intense expression of emotions were less likely to show positive outcomes
The role of insightful disclosure in outcomes for women in peer-directed breast cancer groups: a replication study by Morton A Lieberman( )

1 edition published in 2007 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study was stimulated by the recent publication (Health Commun 2006;19(2):133-142) who reported the effects of insightful disclosure on outcomes in' peer-led internet breast cancer support groups. The present study attempted to replicate their hypotheses using the same methods for coding insightful disclosure as well as parallel outcome measures. Four hypotheses are tested; writing a higher percentage of insightful disclosure words will be associated with: (1) fewer BC concerns; (2) reduction in the emotional distress; (3) better physical health; and (4) few functional limitations. New members (N = 77) to BC bulletin boards (BB) were recruited through BB postings and/or e-mails. We asked them to fill out questionnaires measuring depression and quality of life, when they joined the BB, and again six months later. Two questionnaires (CESD and FACTB [Functional Well being, Physical well being, and Breast cancer Concerns]) were administered and repeated six months later. For two of the four outcome measures (Functional Well being and Breast Cancer Concerns), insightful disclosure played a crucial and significant role, the other two showed a trend toward significance (CESD and Physical well being). The three control variables, stages, years of cancer and level of participation all had effects on the outcomes, varying with the type of outcome measure. The findings, in this study, support Shaw et al. hypotheses. In their study, only one outcome measure, reduction of emotional distress was significant. Copyright (C) 2007 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd
