PTSD and the Politics of Trauma in Israel

PTSD and the Politics of Trauma in Israel

Author: Keren Friedman-Peleg Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 13/12/2016

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, has long been defined as a mental trauma that solely affects the individual. However, against the backdrop of contemporary Israel, what role do families, health experts, donors, and the national community at large play in interpreting and responding to this individualized trauma? In PTSD and the Politics of Trauma in Israel, Keren Friedman-Peleg sheds light on a new way of speaking about mental vulnerability and national belonging in contemporary Israel. Based on ethnographic fieldwork conducted at The Israel Center for Victims of Terror and War and The Israel Trauma Coalition between 2004 and 2009, Friedman-Peleg's rich ethnographic study challenges the traditional and limited definitions of trauma. In doing so, she exposes how these clinical definitions have been transformed into new categories of identity, thereby raising new dynamics of power, as well as new forms of dialogue.

Complementary and Alternative Medicine for PTSD

Complementary and Alternative Medicine for PTSD

The number of individuals diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder has increased in the past decade, not only in the military and veteran population but within the civilian population as well. Traditional treatments such as pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy have provided less-than-ideal results proving to be less effective when used alone to treat the disorder. Complementary and Alternative Medicine for PTSD supplements these traditional treatments, using new and effective techniques to fill the therapeutic void. The alternative therapies covered include acceptance and commitment therapy, acupuncture, alternative pharmacology, canine assistive therapy, family focused interventions, internet and computer-based therapy, meditation techniques, mobile applications, recreational therapy, resilience training, transracial magnetic stimulation, virtual reality exposure therapy, and yoga. Each chapter delivers the most up-to-date understanding of neurobiology, best practices, and key points for clinicians and patients considering inclusion of these treatments in patient care. COL David Benedek and LTC Gary Wynn offer insight into the future of complementary and alternative medicine, shining a light onto how these techniques fit into clinical practice to create the most beneficial treatments for the patient. This book is both an essential resource and practical guide to everyday clinical interactions. It is a necessary addition to the medical library for students and senior clinicians alike.

Nothing Special

Nothing Special

Author: Mary Booker Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/09/2015

A remarkable collection of poetry, prose, photographs and personal experience on the experience of vulnerability. Mary Booker is widely known and respected as a dramatherapist. But in Nothing Special she draws primarily on her own autobiographical writing, movement art, poetry, photography and a year-long Working Creatively with Fear project - as well as her dramatherapy skills and knowledge. Mary explores the roots of vulnerability and fear in her own life, then uses four characters from Shakespeare's The Tempest to unpick the different faces of fear that arise when we meet rejection, abandonment, oppression, alienation, objectification, chaos and a sense of being out-of-control. She shows us how, with care, we can allow fear to become a gateway into vulnerability - and vulnerability can lead us into a deeper experience of joy, gratitude, aliveness and connection with self, others and the world around us. If you work with fear and trauma in others, or have ever experienced them yourself, Nothing Special will offer new approaches, ideas and insights for your personal, creative or professional practice. - See more at: http: //www.triarchypress.net/nothing-special.html#sthash.AS2Ygvct.dpuf
