Alcohol problems in adolescents and young adults : epidemiology, neurobiology, prevention, and treatment by Marc Galanter( Book )

40 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alcohol is the substance most frequently used by youth. According to 2002 data from Monitoring the Future (MTF), a nationally representative survey of youth, 78 per cent of 12th graders, 67 per cent of 10th graders and 47 per cent of 8th graders reported consuming alcohol in their lives. Youth who drink may experience a range of adverse short and long-term consequences including academic problems such as lower grades or school failure, social problems, physical problems such as hangovers or medical illnesses, unwanted or unintended sexual activity, physical and sexual assault, memory problems, increased risk for suicide and homicide, alcohol-related car crashes and death from alcohol poisoning. Clearly, drinking by young people and its consequences presents a significant public health problem which must command attention. This volume of Recent Developments in Alcoholism focusing on alcohol consumption by adolescents and young adults is therefore extremely timely
Spirituality and the healthy mind : science, therapy, and the need for personal meaning by Marc Galanter( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Can the spiritual and the professional, two perspectives that seem different, be reconciled? This book is designed to provide an answer to that question. It draws on recent findings in psychology, neuroscience, and innovative therapies to understand how people express their spiritual needs. It then shows how the mentally ill, substance abusers, and people troubled by a sense that something is missing in their lives can be helped by developing a sense of personal meaning, while still benefiting from contemporary therapy and medications. Finally, it examines shortcomings in both the biomedical and spiritually-oriented approaches."--Jacket

What is Alcoholics Anonymous? : a path from addiction to recovery by Marc Galanter( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alcoholics Anonymous has two million members worldwide, yet this fellowship remains a mystery to most people, and is even viewed by some as a cult or a religion. Written by a psychiatrist and educator in the treatment of alcohol and drug abuse, What Is Alcoholics Anonymous? provides an overview of this popular and established yet poorly understood recovery movement. Author Dr. Marc Galanter integrates findings from the latest research in psychology, cultural history, and clinical science with a range of first-person experiences with AA. The result is a thorough, objective, and accessible investigation into what AA is, how it works, and how the organization might be considered and used by both healthcare professionals and anyone affected by pursuit of recovery--Adapted from publisher description

Recent developments in alcoholism, volume 5 : an official publication of the American Medical Society on Alcoholism, the Research Society on Alcoholism, and the National Council on Alcoholism by Marc Galanter( Book )

6 editions published between 1985 and 1998 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the President of the Research Society on Alcoholism Alcohol research has entered an era of growth which brings enhanced opti mism regarding the elucidation of the biochemical and psychosocial factors which combine to produce the phenomena of alcohol abuse and alcoholism. The solidification of knowledge regarding the genetic determinants of certain alcohol-related problems puts on firm footing the biological approaches for developing solutions to these problems. The current volume of Recent Devel opments in Alcoholism contains an excellent blend of information both on stud ies assessing the behavioral and physiological variables which may be ge netically linked to an individual's risk of developing problems with alcohol, and on clinical and basic science investigations of the pathological conse quences of excessive ethanol ingestion. Further progress in the alcoholism research area will continue to require investigation of the interactions of en vironmental variables with the genetically determined biology of an individ ual. Novel techniques in the fields of molecular genetics, physical chemistry, and behavioral pharmacology are being brought to bear on the central issues in the field, and the addition of these tools to the science of alcohol research brings closer the prospect of fruitful clinical application of our basic knowl edge. The Research Society on Alcoholism remains devoted to the task of promoting the generation of knowledge regarding the actions of alcohol and the mechanisms which produce alcohol abuse and alcoholism
Textbook of addiction treatment : international perspectives by Nady el-Guebaly( Book )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addiction is an increasingly recognized major global public health issue. A growing number of medical specialties, psychological and social science training programs, and professional associations are incorporating addiction as part of their training and continuing education curricula across a broad array of cultures. The need for an International Textbook in this expanding field has therefore become evident. Presenting a world view of the spectrum of addictions-related problems across different cultures, this reference volume highlights the main differences and similarities between clinical practices in the field of Addiction Medicine based on neurobiological similarities as well as epidemiological and socio-cultural differences. While the focus will be on marshalling the empirical evidence in support of the clinical practices, areas where information is mostly experiential will be noted. Examples where an international perspective is critical involve issues such as: the current shift of the smoking epidemic from developed to low and middle-income countries; the growing influence on young people from the parental home and local neighbourhood to role models potentially continents away the demonstrated benefits and limitations of international drug conventions which on the one hand have contained the problem of illegal drugs versus an increase in the use of a legal drug, like tobacco; the need for cost effective translation of the clinical practices of Western health care settings to prevention and treatment strategies adapted to the needs of the rest of the world. This Textbook, which collates the experience and wisdom of more than{OCLCbr#A0}260 leaders in the field, coming from more than{OCLCbr#A0}30 countries,{OCLCbr#A0}is promoted by the International Society of Addiction Medicine (ISAM), founded in 1999, which has as its principal mission the education of practitioners in Addiction Medicine and their trainees worldwide (website: www.isamweb.org)
