Provides clinical descriptions diagnostic guidelines and codes for all mental and behavioural disorders commonly encountered in clinical psychiatry. The book was developed from chapter V of the Tenth Revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-10). The clinical descriptions and diagnostic guidelines were finalized after field testing by over 700 clinicians and researchers in 110 institutes in 40 countries making this book the product of the largest ever research effort designed to improve psychiatric diagnosis. Every effort has been made to define categories whose existence is scientifically justifiable as well as clinically useful. The classification divides disorders into ten groups according to major common themes or descriptive likeness a new feature which makes for increased convenience of use. For each disorder the book provides a full description of the main clinical features and all other important but less specific associated features. Diagnostic guidelines indicate the number balance and duration of symptoms usually required before a confident diagnosis can be made. Inclusion and exclusion criteria are also provided together with conditions to be considered in differential diagnosis. The guidelines are worded so that a degree of flexibility is retained for diagnostic decisions in clinical work particularly in the situation where provisional diagnosis may have to be made before the clinical picture is entirely clear or information is complete. ... As befitting a publication of considerable influence the amount of work that went into preparing ICD-10 has been formidable... - The International Journal of Social Psychiatry

An estimated 400 million people suffer from mental or neurological disorders or from psychosocial problems such as those related to alcohol and drug abuse. Many of them suffer silently. Many suffer alone. Many never receive treatment of any kind. Between the suffering and the prospect of care stand the barriers of stigma, prejudice, shame, and exclusion. In devoting The World Health Report 2001 to mental health, WHO is making one clear, emphatic statement. Mental health - neglected for far too long - is crucial to the overall well-being of individuals, societies, and countries and must be universally regarded in a new light. This book is a landmark report that aims to raise professional and public awareness of the real burden of mental and neurological disorders and the cost in human, social, and economic terms. At the same time, it aims to dismantle many of those barriers, which prevent millions of sufferers from receiving the treatment they need and deserve. The report comes at a critical time for the mental health of the world. One person in every four will be affected by a mental disorder at some stage of life. Major depression already ranks fifth in the leading ten causes of the global burden of disease. If projections are correct, within the next 20 years it will have risen to second place. Globally, 140 million people suffer from alcohol dependence. About 50 million have epilepsy; another 45 million have schizophrenia. Between ten and 20 million people attempt suicide every year. One million of them - including many who are very young - do kill themselves.The World Health Report 2001 provides a new understanding that offers new hope to the mentally ill. It comes from the great wealth of knowledge that has been gathered, particularly in the last 50 years, of the human brain and the basis of mental illness. The report is about understanding how genetic, biological, social, and environmental factors come together to cause mental and neurological disorders as well as physical illnesses. It is about understanding how inseparable mental and physical health really are, and how their influence on each other is complex and profound. It is about understanding that mental disorders occur in all countries and all societies - and that more often than not, they can be treated effectively. And not least, it is about how human understanding can make such a huge difference to the mentally ill. The report is a comprehensive review of what we know about the current and future burden of all these disorders and their principal contributing factors. It examines the effectiveness of prevention and the availability of and barriers to treatment. It deals in detail with service provision and service planning. And finally, it outlines the policies that are urgently needed to ensure that stigma and discrimination are broken down, and that effective prevention and treatment are put in place and adequately funded. This report is sending a message primarily to those who have the power or the means to make these things happen. Foremost among them are governments, who must recognize that they are just as responsible for the mental health of their citizens as for their physical health. The message is not only for health ministers. Other departments, education, employment and legislation, among them - also have major responsibilities in promoting good mental health. It is a message that goes beyond governments, towards all those in both the public and private domains who can exert a positive influence. Finally, it is a message for all those who have a mental or neurological disorder, and their families. The message is contained in the title of this report. With the new understanding of mental health at our disposal, there really is new hope.

Mobbing als mitarbeiter- und organisationssch„digendes Verhalten

Eine betriebswirtschaftliche Analyse der Ursachen und Folgen

Page: 176

View: 6687


Als klingendes Modewort wird Mobbing h ufig nur als krankhaftes Beziehungsfeld verstanden, dem sich allein Experten aus Psychologie, Medizin und Soziologie zu widmen haben. Diese Studie soll dem beschriebenen Irrglauben ein Ende setzen: Bislang kaum untersuchte betriebswirtschaftliche Ursachen, Folgen und L sungsans tze von Mobbing am Arbeitsplatz werden umfassend analysiert und der Wert dieser Betrachtungsweise aufgezeigt. Arbeit nimmt im Leben einen immer gr eren Stellwert ein - und geht so mit einer st rker werdenden Sanktionsmacht einher. Was auf der einen Seite als menschliches und individuelles Leid zum Ausdruck kommt, kann sich auf der anderen in konomischen Dimensionen f r Unternehmen niederschlagen: Arbeitnehmer reagieren mit abfallender Leistungsf higkeit und geringer Motivation. Mobbing jedoch ist facettenreicher, Produktivit tssteigerung und Einsparungspotentiale bieten gegenteilige Aspekte. Ebenso bedeutend ist die Frage, wie es zu Mobbing kommen kann. F r den Schulbereich findet man Erkl rungen der "unvern nftigen Kinder," die sich aus der Gruppe heraus den Schw chsten zum rgern suchen. Doch wie ist es bei erwachsenen, oft hoch gebildeten Arbeitnehmern? Sind auch sie allein den Gesetzen der Gruppendynamik und Charakterschw chen unterlegen? Bei der betriebswirtschaftlichen Analyse von Mobbing werden Ursachen gefiltert, die tiefer als im Individuum liegen: Elemente der Arbeitsorganisation, Aufgabengestaltung, Unternehmenskommunikation, das Bild vom zu kontrollierenden "faulen homo oeconomicus" und dem daraus resultierenden F hrungsverhalten. Etwas abstrakter fasst das Konzept des Strukturellen Mobbing diese Idee. Besondere Beachtung findet auch die erste Repr sentativstudie f r Deutschland von 2002. Als konomische" L sungsm glichkeiten werden abschlie end verschiedene Konzepte wie Teamarbeit, job rotation, enlargement u.a. mit dem Mobbingbegriff verkn pft und aktuelle rechtliche Grundlagen erl utert.

The Complementary Therapist's Guide to Conventional Medicine E-Book

The Complementary Therapist's Guide to Conventional Medicine is a unique textbook for students and practitioners of complementary medicine, offering a systematic comparative approach to Western and Eastern medicine. Practitioners of complementary medicine increasingly find themselves working alongside conventionally trained doctors and nurses and it is vital for them to develop a core understanding of conventional medical language and philosophy. The book is designed as a guide to understanding conventional medical diagnoses, symptoms and treatments, whilst also encouraging the reader to reflect on and translate how these diagnoses may be interpreted from a more holistic medical perspective. Throughout the text the practitioner/student is encouraged to see that conventional and more holistic interpretations are not necessarily contradictory, but instead are simply two different approaches to interpreting the same truth, that truth being the patient's symptoms. After introductory sections on physiology, pathology and pharmacology, there follow sections devoted to each of the physiological systems of the body. In these, the physiology of each system is explored together with the medical investigation, symptoms and treatments of the important diseases which might affect that system. As each disease is described, the reader is encouraged to consider the corresponding Chinese medical perspective. The textbook concludes with chapters relating specifically to dealing with patients in practice. In particular these focus on warning signs of serious disease, supporting patients on medication and ethical issues which may arise from management of patients which is shared with conventional practitioners. The book also offers a detailed summary of 'Red Flag symptoms' which are those which should be referred for 'Western' medical investigation or emergency medical treatment, and also a guide to how patients can be safely supported in withdrawing from conventional medication, when this is clinically appropriate. Those wishing to use the text for systematic study can make use of the question and problem-solving approach offered on the accompanying CD to which references to self study exercises appear at regular stages throughout the book. This means that the text can be easily adapted to form the basis of a study course in clinical medicine for students of complementary medicine. In addition to the self-testing questions and answers, the supporting CD also contains checklists for revision and full-colour illustrations. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Clare Stephenson is a qualified medical practitioner who worked in hospital medicine, general practice and public health medicine for a number of years before training in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture. Over the course of a decade she developed and taught an undergraduate course for students of Chinese medicine on Western medicine and how it relates to TCM. She is particularly committed to encouraging communication and understanding between practitioners of different health disciplines. She currently works as a GP in Oxfordshire.

The second edition of A Primer of Clinical Psychiatry provides a broad overview of the major topics in psychiatry and provides the clinical skills necessary for competent clinical practice. It also includes an up-to-date overview of the scientific literature behind this fascinating and challenging medical discipline. This book covers in detail the psychiatric interview, the mental state examination, and clinical investigations relevant to psychiatry. All of the major syndromes of psychiatry are addressed including schizophrenia, depressive disorders, bipolar disorder, anxiety, post-traumatic disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, eating disorders, somatoform disorders and personality disorders and cover epidemiology, aetiology and clinical aspects, and discussion of specific treatment approaches.
