Cured

Author: Anne McTiernan Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/09/2020

Anne McTiernan begins her second memoir at age twenty-nine, soon after completing her doctoral training in public health research at the University of Washington. She and her husband are now parents to four-year-old and three-month-old girls. She realizes that jobs in her field are scarce, especially for women and decides she needs better credentials to land a job. Overcoming her fear and life-long struggle with inadequacy, Anne moves the family 3,000 miles to New York, where she begins medical school. Within a few months of starting this new life, Anne is in deep trouble. She cannot handle the competing demands and feels isolated. The stress builds, until Anne suffers a series of paralyzing panic attacks that threaten her ability to function. She begins psychotherapy and starts on a journey of self-discovery, realizing she has to change to survive. Cured is the follow-up to her 2016 release Starved and differs from other physician memoirs in its themes of motherhood, mental illness, and the perspective of a female physician on how she turned adversity into a strength and set of skills.

Chronic Pain and Opioid Management

Chronic Pain and Opioid Management

Author: Jennifer L. Murphy, Samantha Rafie Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/09/2020

This book presents an integrated approach for concurrently treating chronic pain and opioid use. Many patients who suffer from chronic pain are also managing opioid medications. Because this population often requires a higher level of care, it is critical for providers to address pain and opioid management together. This book presents an integrated healthcare team approach that helps patients manage opioid use in a structured, safe, and supportive environment while also exploring all of the factors that impact the patients' pain experience. This whole-person approach to care allows for cross-cutting strategies to be applied and maximizes the reduction of suffering. The behavioral treatment strategies in this book can help providers assist patients who are struggling with chronic pain and have relied on opioids at one point. This includes individuals that are considering de-prescribing, are in the process of opioid tapering, have recently discontinued from opioids, or are currently using opioids effectively for pain. Combining expert clinical guidance with the latest research and practical case examples, the book helps practitioners across healthcare disciplines understand their patients, improve rapport and engagement, and implement treatment strategies to help patients live their best lives.

Recovery Skills Manual

Recovery Skills Manual

Author: Paul H. Earley Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/08/2020

A practical, step-by-step guide designed to help practitioners implement Dr. Earley's groundbreaking theory of addiction treatment found in RecoveryMind Training in outpatient practice (ASAM Level 1), IOP (Level 2.1), Partial Hospitalization (Level 2.5), or Residential program (Levels 3.1 to 3.7). RecoveryMind Training (RMT) is a cohesive treatment model based on the concept that addiction recovery is a learned skill. To be successful, the learning involved in recovery has to overcome the complex and hard-wired entrainment produced by the use of highly reinforcing drugs - including alcohol. The RMT model describes the dynamics of active addiction with regard to its effects on the brain - motivations, drives, memories, and cognitive distortions - with the term Addict Brain. Recovery is facilitated through the learning of a structured set of skills that promote changes in thoughts, beliefs, and actions, and bring about Recovery Mind.
