Spirituality and the healthy mind : science, therapy, and the need for personal meaning by Marc Galanter( )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,558 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

"These five chapters provide a comprehensive, yet succinct review of the body of evidence produced on a worldwide basis concerning both beneficial and adverse effects associated with alcohol consumption, emphasizing the importance and variability of the dose-effect relationship and the resulting sometimes opposite effects. Better understanding of the pathogenesis involved will allow for a more rational and practical application of these findings to patient care, both in terms of their immediate implementation and for some possible future therapeutic approaches."--Pages 5-6

Textbook of addiction treatment : international perspectives by Nady el-Guebaly( )

13 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 218 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)
What is Alcoholics Anonymous? : a path from addiction to recovery by Marc Galanter( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 169 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
