Dr. Jill Stansbury draws on her decades of clinical experience and her extensive research to provide an unparalleled range of herbal formulas. Organized by body system, each volume includes hundreds of formulas to treat common health conditions, as well as formulas that address specific energetic or symptomatic presentations. For each formula, Dr. Stansbury briefly explains how the selected herbs address the specific condition. Sidebars and user-friendly lists help readers quickly choose which herbs are best for specific presentations and detail traditional uses of both Western and traditional Asian formulas and herbs that are readily available in the United States. Volume 4 focuses on herbal formulas that are complementary therapies to treatment of peripheral nerve issues, including neuropathy and nerve trauma, and central nervous system issues such as seizures, Parkinson's disease, and dementia. A chapter on psychiatric disorders focuses on herbal therapies for common conditions such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, dissociative disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well as the use of herbal formulas in treatment of those dealing with drug addiction. A chapter on pain management provides herbal formulas for both acute and chronic pain conditions, including headaches, sinus pain, muscle pain, neuralgia, gastrointestinal pain, and pain from injuries.

Volume 1 focuses on digestion and elimination; Volume 2 covers circulation and respiration; and Volume 3 focuses on endocrinology and the reproductive systems. Volume 5, which will cover immunology, orthopedics, and otolaryngology, will be published in spring 2021.
This atlas presents the detailed anatomy of the external carotid arterial branches for interventional radiology. In the last decade, interventional neuroradiology (endovascular treatment via the cerebral arteries) has advanced rapidly thanks to the development of new technological devices, such as detachable coils for brain aneurysm. Anatomical knowledge of the target vessels is essential for interventional neuroradiology, and innovative new imaging techniques like 3D angiography and image fusion techniques can depict the detailed anatomy of small vessels together with surrounding organs. This compilation provides not only 2D angiography images, but also 3D and cross-sectional images, as well as fusion images mainly based on 3D angiography, CT and MRI to further readers' understanding of the complicated anatomy of the small branches of the external carotid artery.

The book offers a valuable resource for interventional neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons and neurologists, as well as otolaryngologists, plastic surgeons, radiology technicians, and all medical staff involved in interventional radiology.
Educators face an often overwhelming set of tasks, including educating the whole child, preparing students for the future, meeting all students' daily needs, meeting multiple stakeholders' expectations, and being accountable to government mandates. In The Handbook for SMART School Teams (Second Edition): Revitalizing Best Practices for Collaboration, authors Anne E. Conzemius and Jan O'Neill offer a revamped edition of their groundbreaking resource to support educators and school teams as they meet these challenges head-on.

The book is split into three parts. Part one lays the groundwork for building effective teams. Part two offers tools and processes to sustain effective teamwork. Finally, part three describes methods for schoolwide improvement.
Starting part one, chapters 1 and 2 show readers how to cultivate an atmosphere of collaboration and define team roles. In chapter 3, K 12 teachers and administrators will learn the characteristics of building effective teams and of giving and receiving effective feedback.
Part two starts with chapter 4, which focuses on planning, organizing, and executing meetings. Readers will also explore different types of meetings and their pros and cons. In chapters 5 and 6, educators will gather effective collaboration tools to better understand how staff, students, and stakeholders view their schools. Chapter 7 explores the power of data tools, and educators will examine how data are beneficial for more than identifying problems.
Finally, part three begins with chapter 8, which offers methods for organizing all team members into a cohesive system. In chapter 9, K 12 teachers and administrators will learn a process for schoolwide improvement: selecting a leadership team, preparing the school for change, and isolating key questions to ask during the process.
