The course of alcoholism : four years after treatment by J. Michael Polich( Book )

18 editions published between 1976 and 1981 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traces longitudinal patterns of alcohol-related problems and alcoholic remission over four years. A sample of 922 male alcoholics was assessed at the time of admission to treatment and at several followup points; at four years, the data included interviews and validating information for survivors, and official causes of death for those deceased. The analysis identifies factors associated with remission, relapse, and alcohol-related death over the four-year period. Patterns of psychological functioning and social adjustment are also examined and related to drinking behavior. Methodological analyses assess the validity of self-reports and the extent of potential bias due to nonresponse. Results show that although about half of the cohort was in remission at four years, remissions were generally intermittent rather than stable over long periods of time

Doing crime : a survey of California prison inmates by Mark A Peterson( Book )

9 editions published between 1976 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a survey conducted in five California prisons during July and August 1976, this study explores criminological issues concerning the number of crimes committed by offenders, the characteristics of high-rate "career" criminals, and the associations between these characteristics and the crimes themselves. The survey of 624 incarcerated male felons is the first known examination of these issues using offender-provided information from a large sample. It provides new information on offenders' descriptions of their crimes, their involvement with criminal justice agencies, the reasons they offer for their crimes, and their perceptions of and attitudes toward crime and the criminal justice system. It also describes the relationship between crime rates and three kinds of self-reported information: personal characteristics--age, race, drug use; experience with the criminal justice system--prior criminal record, current conviction offense, juvenile record; social-psychological characteristics--self-concept, motivation, attitudes about crime, perception of the payoffs of crime, and economic, residential, and marital status
The September 11 syndrome : anxious days and sleepless nights by Harriet B Braiker( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everyday life for ordinary citizens has become fraught with danger and the real threat of attack. Suddenly fear of flying, fear of crowded places, anxiety over heights, subways, public transportation, and even opening the mail cannot be dismissed as mere phobias. We are told to "get back to a normal routine" at the same time we are told to "be on your highest alert for attack"--It's no wonder we are fearful and anxiety-ridden. But at least for the near future, we must learn to manage our fears and anxieties or else become paralyzed by them and become unable to live our lives. Renowned psychologist Harriet Braiker presents 10 methods her patients have used successfully to reclaim their lives by managing stress in anxiety in ways that allow them to be vigilant to potential dangers and at the same time carry on their day-to-day business and personal affairs and plan for the future. Dr. Braiker presents readers the keys to psychological hardiness and resiliency - using proven techniques used by survivors of trauma and people who "thrive" on stress.; Many people actually become energized and more effective in times of stress - for instance, Mayor Rudy Guiliani has performed at the top of his game during the WTC disaster, and even his staunchest critics have praised his actions. Braiker shows how to maintain the necessary mindset readers need in order to regain freedom of travel, commerce, and everyday joys. Her strategies include advice on how to focus on things you can control, instead of on things you can't. She tells readers that anxiety is not necessarily something they must avoid - that in fact, anxiety can facilitate performance if it can be kept at just the right level. This book will show how to keep that anxiety level in check

The disease to please : [curing the people-pleasing syndrome] by Harriet B Braiker( )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

People pleasers are not just nice people who go overboard trying to make everyone happy. Those who suffer from the Disease to please are people who say "Yes" when they really want to say "No." For them, the uncontrollable need for the elusive approval of others is an addiction. Their debilitating fears of anger and confrontation force them to use "niceness" and "people-pleasing" as self-defense camouflage. Featured on NBC's "Today," The disease to please explodes the dangerous myth that "people pleasing" is a benign problem. Best-selling author and frequent "Oprah" guest Dr. Harriet Braiker offers clear, positive, practical, and easily do-able steps toward recovery. As a recovered peoplepleaser, you will finally see that a balanced way of living that takes others into consideration but puts the emphasis first on pleasing yourself and gaining your own approval is the clearest path to health and happiness
Patterns of alcoholism over four years by J. Michael Polich( Book )

6 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The four-year study addressed a large number of research questions, including both methodological issues and substantive issues about the nature of alcoholism. This paper presents results from three of the principal study areas, comprising the most important findings of the research. The first area is the status of the cohort at four years: that is, the overall conditions of this group of alcoholics. This includes the types of drinking behavior found at the four-year point, certain developmental patterns of drinking behavior, and the extent of mortality between admission to treatment and the four-year followup. Second, this paper examines the overall social and psychological adjustment of the cohort, apart from drinking behavior itself. The four-year study collected a variety of psychosocial measurements to describe the subjects in terms of broad aspects of human functioning. The most important question here is one of rehabilitation: How much improvement in social characteristics can be observed at four years, compared to the debilitated conditions that were prevalent when these subjects were admitted to treatment? Third, this paper addresses patterns of relapse. The relapse process is highly relevant to both traditional and modern conceptions of alcoholism, and the four-year study expended considerable effort in studying it over time. The discussion here will describe the patterns that appeared at four years and the models that were used to predict conditions under which relapse occurs
