Military mental health care : a guide for service members, veterans, families, and community by Cheryl Lawhorne Scott( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Too often American veterans return from combat and spiral into depression, anger and loneliness they can neither share nor tackle on their own. This guide seeks to aid our troubled, returning forces by dissecting the numerous mental health problems they face upon arriving stateside. The authors detail not only each issue's symptoms, but also discuss what treatments are available, and the best ways for veterans to access those treatments while readjusting to civilian life. In addition, the authors connect and explain many alarming trends, such as joblessness, poverty, and addiction, appearing in our nations's veteran population on a broader scale. Post-traumatic stress syndrome and struggles with anxiety affect far more than veterans themselves, as sobering phenomena like homelessness, suicide, domestic violence, and divorce too often become realities for those returning from war. This book is both a resource for struggling veterans and a useful tool for their loved ones or anyone looking for ways to support the veterans in their lives. -- From back cover

Sexual assault in the military : a guide for victims and families by Cheryl Lawhorne Scott( )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 1,194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sexual assault and harassment in the military have been a critical subject for years. Many victims may be reluctant to press charges because of fear of retaliation, damage to their careers, and widespread uncertainty regarding the military justice system. However, when circumstances arise, there are resources available to assist victims and families in their efforts to report, seek help, and recover from the effects of sexual assault. Yet, finding those resources can be challenging, especially in a time of crisis. Sexual Assault in the Military serves as a reference guide for military members and their families about sexual assault and harassment. While more and more attention focuses on getting victims to report their abuse, accessing information can still be difficult for service members. Understanding that the military is making changes, and offering support is a necessary step towards how best to treat these cases and how to get help and justice. Cheryl Lawhorne-Scott and Don Philpott discuss the current state of affairs, the systems in place, and the supports available to victims and families. They provide documents that outline how reporting can and should take place, how cases should be handled through the military justice system, and how and where victims can access resources, including counseling
Combat-related traumatic brain injury and PTSD : a resource and recovery guide by Cheryl Lawhorne Scott( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As more veterans return from deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan, more are needing care for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and combat-related traumatic brain injuries (TBI). While there are several treatment and recovery options, outlets for support, and other resources, understanding and gaining access to them is often difficult or confusing. Authors Cheryl Lawhorne and Don Philpott offer guidance for returning veterans, from treatment options, to diagnostic criteria and techniques, to resources for rehabilitation and support. The authors begin discussions of TBI and PTSD by offering definitions of each, outlining the risk factors, and exploring the relationship between the two. They then move on to provide explanations of diagnostic criteria, treatment options, prevention techniques, and barriers to seeking care. Sections on the important role that insurance and health care plays, and on the support of family and friends, round out this volume

Critical government documents on the environment by Don Philpott( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although the earth has been around for millions of years, humans have only been seriously interested in protecting and preserving the environment for less than 200 years; the terms "conservationism" and "environmentalism" are little more than 100 years old. The Industrial Revolution brought with it many benefits such as the production of coal, steel, cement, and mass-produced chemicals and fertilizers; it also brought pollution and, shortly thereafter, a serious concern for the environment. This book presents the most up-to-date government information on various environmental topics. Critical Government Documents on the Environment presents official governmental positions on many of the leading environmental issues facing us today. All the material in this book is from published sources, including: Environmental Protection Agency, Department of the Interior, Department of Energy, Department of Agriculture, Department of Health and Human Services, the White House, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Weather Service, U.S. Global Change Research Program, U.S. Geological Survey. This book does not offer any new science but attempts to present important government information on various issues facing our environment. Areas covered include global warming and greenhouse gases, water, air and marine pollution, and renewable energy. It includes a timeline of important environmental events over the last 200 years and has an extensive glossary of environmental terms."--Page 4 of cover
