Jacques Lacan's thinking revolutionised the theory and practice of psychoanalysis and had a major impact in fields as diverse as film studies, literary criticism, feminist theory and philosophy. Yet his writings are notorious for their complexity and idiosyncratic style. Emphasising the clinical basis of Lacan's work, An Introductory Dictionary of Lacanian Psychoanalysis is an ideal companion to his ideas for readers in every discipline where his influence is felt. The Dictionary features:
* over 200 entries, explaining Lacan's own terminology and his use of common psychoanalytic expressions
* details of the historical and institutional context of Lacan's work
* reference to the origins of major concepts in the work of Freud, Saussure, Hegel and other key thinkers
* a chronology of Lacan's life and works.

|Proprioception Control in Joint Stability
Lowest new price: $64.95
Lowest used price: $64.99
List price: $77.00
Author: Scott M. Lephart
This is the first comprehensive reference to address the basic science of proprioception and neuromuscular control. Drawn from the research of internationally respected authorities and spanning several disciplines, this is the one book you need in order to learn the status of scientifically supported knowledge regarding proprioception and its role in motor control and joint stability.
This is your best resource for
-reviewing the structure and function of the sensorimotor system,
-gaining insight into the neuromuscular system as it relates to joint stability and proprioception, and
-developing rehabilitation programs aimed at correcting neuromuscular control and proprioception problems.
Proprioception and Neuromuscular Control in Joint Stability draws from the work of renowned experts in the fields of orthopaedic surgery, biomechanics, physiology, athletic training, physical therapy, and engineering. It presents specific content and management strategies related to knee, shoulder, and ankle injuries.
Based on the proceedings of a conference conducted by the Foundation for Sports Medicine Education and Research/American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, this reference explores directions for future research and clinical protocols.
Divided into four sections, the reference first examines the contribution of the sensorimotor system to joint stability in Section I. Section II examines the effects of ligament injury on proprioception and neuromuscular control. Section III identifies special issues related to proprioception and neuromuscular control, while Section IV presents the role of rehabilitation in reestablishing proprioception and neuromuscular control.
Proprioception and Neuromuscular Control in Joint Stability offers a unified and inclusive body of knowledge regarding proprioception and serves as a valued guide for directing future research and clinical applications.

Evidence-Based Treatments for Alcohol and Drug Abuse encompasses the developments in the field over the last decade, blending theory, techniques and clinical flexibility.
Research in the past decade has shown that substance abuse and substance dependence are treatable. The field has witnessed the introduction of evidence-based psychological and specific pharmacological treatments. Unfortunately, many of the empirical supported therapies for addictions are still not widely applied by practitioners. The third volume in the Practical Clinical Guidebooks Series (PCG), Evidence-Based Treatments for Alcohol and Drug Abuse, defines the characteristics, classification, and prevalence of substance use disorders, and provides the clinician with practical guidelines applicable across a variety of treatment settings and patient groups.
Drawing on the recent research in the field, the authors provide the practicing clinician and student with an up-to-date understanding of the epidemiology, etiology, course and prognosis of substance abuse disorders that would be relevant to clinical practice. In addition to describing phenomenology and etiology, the book provides a comprehensive guide to the assessment and treatment of DSM-IV-TR substance abuse disorders (SUDs), including abuse and dependence of alcohol, stimulants, opiates, hallucinogens, cannabis/marijuana, sedative, and party drugs.
