|The Medical Marriage: A Couple's Survival Guide
Lowest new price: $40.63
Lowest used price: $2.47

Author: Wayne M. Sotile
What makes a good marriage when one or both spouses are physicians?
Physicians experience stress, depression, substance abuse, obsessive-compulsiveness, and workaholism and commit suicide more often than the general population. In addition, the spouse of a physician can become trapped in a self-focused style of coping that ruins the marriage. But all is not dismal! The Medical Marriage sheds light on the secrets of the medical couples who manage to avoid or escape a bad marriage.
Over the past sixteen years, Wayne and Mary Sotile have collectively spent more than 60,000 hours counseling high-powered couples, including hundreds of physicians. Their book offers provocative answers to a number of questions: Why is the traditional medical marriage quickly becoming a thing of the past? Why are female physicians 40 percent more prone to divorce than their male colleagues? Are physicians' careers being hurt or helped by their efforts to better balance their professional and personal lives?
The Medical Marriage is the first book to address the intimate lives of medical couples. Here doctors and their spouses will learn about the stages of the medical couple's journey; the issues that make money a source of stress in the medical marriage; eight type of medical marriages - their strengths and weaknesses; nine characteristics of highly successful medical couples; the Intimacy Formula for a high-passion medical marriage; and six keys for negotiating differences without damaging the relationship.
Written with the insights of professional marriage therapists and the compassion and empathy of a couple who themselves are juggling the roles of professionals, parents, and passionate partners, The Medical Marriage is destined to become the classic self-help guide for couples facing the challenges that fill both medicine and marriage in contemporary times.

|Practical Ethics for Psychologists: A Positive Approach
Lowest new price: $16.85

List price: $49.95
Author: Samuel J. Knapp
Brand: Spring Arbor Distributors
On a daily basis, psychologists confront ethical issues. "Practical Ethics for Psychologists: A Positive Approach" helps psychologists clarify what they value, consider how they should behave, and determine what constitutes proper professional conduct. This book is unique in stressing the importance of positive ethics - that is, ways in which psychologists can reach their highest ethical ideals, rather than just avoiding breaking rules. Using the newly revised "2002 APA Code of Ethics" as a guide, the authors lay out a five-step model for resolving ethical dilemmas, illustrating the discussion with thumbnail sketches of both ethical and questionable behaviors. Throughout, they stress the importance of self-care, which involves self-regulation, emotional competence, and an understanding of the unique occupational challenges of being a psychologist. Readers will find themselves consulting the book over and over again for guidance on dealing with ethically complex issues like competence, multiple relationships, informed consent, confidentiality (including confidentiality with life endangering patients), fees and financial issues, public statements, and risk management. Individual chapters are devoted to special issues for psychologists working in forensics, teaching, business, assessment, therapy, and supervision and training. This book is ideal for classroom use or self-study.
|Restorative Gardens: The Healing Landscape
Lowest new price: $50.50
Lowest used price: $7.98
List price: $50.00
Author: Ms. Nancy Gerlach-Spriggs
Restorative gardens for the sick, which were a vital part of the healing process from the Middle Ages to the early 20th century, provided ordered settings in which patients could begin to heal, both physically and mentally. In this book, a landscape architect, a physician and a historian examine the history and role of restorative gardens to show why it is important to again integrate nature into the institutional - and largely factorylike - settings of modern health care facilities. The authors present the history of restorative gardens and studies six American health care centers that cherish the role of their gardens in the therapeutic process. These institutions are examined in detail: community hospitals in Wasau, Wisconisn, and Monterey, California; a full-care mental institution in Philadelphia; a nursing home in Queens; a facility for rehabilitative medicine in New York City; and a hospice in Houston. In their comprehensive review the authors suggest that contemporary scientific understanding clearly recognizes the beneficial physiological effects of garden environments on patients' well-being. The book ends with a plea to make gardens - rather than the shopping mall atria so often seen in newly renovated hospitals - a vital part of the medical milieu.

|Strange Harvest: Organ Transplants, Denatured Bodies, and the Transformed Self
Lowest new price: $25.00
Lowest used price: $1.25
List price: $34.95
Author: Lesley A. Sharp
Strange Harvest illuminates the wondrous yet disquieting medical realm of organ transplantation by drawing on the voices of those most deeply involved: transplant recipients, clinical specialists, and the surviving kin of deceased organ donors. In this rich and deeply engaging ethnographic study, anthropologist Lesley Sharp explores how these parties think about death, loss, and mourning, especially in light of medical taboos surrounding donor anonymity. As Sharp argues, new forms of embodied intimacy arise in response, and the riveting insights gleaned from her interviews, observations, and descriptions of donor memorials and other transplant events expose how patients and donor families make sense of the transfer of body parts from the dead to the living. For instance, all must grapple with complex yet contradictory clinical assertions of death as easily detectable and absolute; nevertheless, transplants are regularly celebrated as forms of rebirth, and donors as living on in others' bodies. New forms of sociality arise, too: recipients and donors' relatives may defy sanctions against communication, and through personal encounters strangers are transformed into kin. Sharp also considers current experimental research efforts to develop alternative sources for human parts, with prototypes ranging from genetically altered animals to sophisticated mechanical devices. These future trajectories generate intriguing responses among both scientists and transplant recipients as they consider how such alternatives might reshape established―yet unusual―forms of embodied intimacy.
|Matters of Life and Death: Key Writings
Lowest new price: $23.57
Lowest used price: $2.93
List price: $31.95
Author: Iona Heath
In this extraordinary book, Iona Heath draws on her experience as a general practitioner to select and comment on a collection of passages concerning death and dying, and to consider the essential nature of general practice. In Ways of Dying Heath illuminates the process for professionals and lay readers, and stimulates consideration of approaches to improved care at end of life. Her renowned work The Mystery of General Practice (which has been unavailable for some time), considers the complex character of this field, its core values and changing roles. The two extended essays cover important issues on the role of the healthcare professional in the care of the dying, the idea of life and death, and the essential nature of general practice. Matters of Life and Death offers inspiration for all doctors, especially those with an interest in medical humanities. It will also be of great interest to general readers interested in end of life matters, and the nature and art of medicine.
