Concussion: A Clinical Profile Approach to Assessment and Treatment

Concussion: A Clinical Profile Approach to Assessment and Treatment Lowest new price: $42.43
Lowest used price: $39.46
List price: $64.95
Author: Anthony P. Kontos

Medical consensus once held that all concussions were the same, and treatment for all concussion patients therefore followed the same standard approach. In this volume, Anthony Kontos and Michael Collins debunk the one‑size‑fits‑all approach, arguing instead that individuals who experience concussion respond best to targeted interventions based on their specific clinical profile of symptoms and impairment. In fact, the most commonly prescribed management strategy—rest—can actually prolong recovery time for some individuals.
 
The authors present a comprehensive, team‑based model for assessment and treatment of concussion. Assessment should involve an interdisciplinary lineup that evaluates the patient across multiple domains, including vestibular and oculomotor function, cognitive fatigue, post‑traumatic migraine, and anxiety/mood. Based on the individual’s clinical profile, treatment should actively target the affected domains. The book combines empirical evidence with case examples, with special attention to at‑risk populations such as athletes, military, and youth.

This resource is essential reading for those who assess, treat, or research concussion, including professionals and students in clinical-counseling psychology, neuropsychology, neurology, neurosurgery, optometry, pediatrics, physical therapy, primary care, sports medicine, and athletic training.

The Human Side of Cancer: Living with Hope, Coping with Uncertainty

The Human Side of Cancer: Living with Hope, Coping with Uncertainty Lowest new price: $5.70
Lowest used price: $1.85
List price: $14.99
Author: Jimmie Holland

For more than twenty years, Dr. Holland has pioneered the study of psychological problems of cancer patients and their families -- whom she calls "the real experts." In The Human Side of Cancer, she shares what she has learned from all of them about facing this life-threatening illness and what truly helps along the cancer journey. This book is the next best thing to sitting in Dr. Holland's office and talking with her about the uncertainty and anxiety elicited by this disease. And it is a book that inspires hope -- through stories of the simple courage of ordinary people confronting cancer.

"There are two aspects to the human side of cancer: what cancer does psychologically to people and their families, and how emotions and behaviors may influence the risk of getting cancer and its outcome," writes Jimmie C. Holland, M.D., founder of the field of psycho-oncology (the psychological issues of cancer) and chairman of the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. "The human side of cancer is all encompassing; it's about you, your surroundings, and your experience of the illness."

Doctors often don't have the time or the skills to deal with psychological issues. The Human Side of Cancer tackles the emotional issues of cancer head-on. Holland knows there's no "one size fits all" coping style and is sensitive to each reader's uniqueness and belief system. "We do have overwhelming proof, however, that how you cope with your illness can improve your overall quality of life," she asserts. The theory that cancer patients with a "fighting spirit" have a better chance of survival than those who are passive is not, it turns out, supported by research. But whether or not your personality is spunky and confrontational or laid-back and accepting, you can use your own methods of coping to make sure you live a healthy lifestyle and hang in there with your cancer treatment--which does improve your chances of survival. The authors explain how you can choose a doctor who demonstrates the "Three C's" (competence, compassion, and caring) and gives you practical instructions for making the most of each doctor's appointment. The book also covers coping strategies, the psychological effects of different treatments, psychosocial issues related to specific forms of cancer, and the "emotional baggage" of surviving.

The Human Side of Cancer combines sensitive advice and explanations with quotes and anecdotes of cancer patients, research summaries, self-help tips, and checklists. The book is for both the cancer survivor and family members. Anyone dealing with cancer will benefit from Holland's wisdom and experience. --Joan Price

    Music, Language, and the Brain Lowest new price: $33.00
    Lowest used price: $26.71
    List price: $44.95
    Author: Aniruddh D. Patel

    In the first comprehensive study of the relationship between music and language from the standpoint of cognitive neuroscience, Aniruddh D. Patel challenges the widespread belief that music and language are processed independently. Since Plato's time, the relationship between music and language has attracted interest and debate from a wide range of thinkers. Recently, scientific research on this topic has been growing rapidly, as scholars from diverse disciplines, including linguistics, cognitive science, music cognition, and neuroscience are drawn to the music-language interface as one way to explore the extent to which different mental abilities are processed by separate brain mechanisms. Accordingly, the relevant data and theories have been spread across a range of disciplines. This volume provides the first synthesis, arguing that music and language share deep and critical connections, and that comparative research provides a powerful way to study the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying these uniquely human abilities.
