In "Healing Art and Young People", Trevor Jeavons gives a valuable insight into the world of art therapy. Interweaving moving examples from his work with young patients with his professional and personal conclusions, Trevor Jeavons draws on his years of experience working with 'unhappy' children and adults to show that his individual approach can help a wide variety of young people to make sense of their lives and develop the strength to cope with their particular problems. This is not only a book for fellow therapists that examines complex issues and offers valuable advice for those working in the field of art therapy, it is a moving testament to the spirit and creativity of 'damaged' children that can be nourished by using the appropriate approach. Trevor Jeavons avoids jargon in this very accessible and absorbing account that can be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in the minds of children, as well as being an informative and thought provoking reference book for those working in the fascinating field of art therapy. The foreword by Julie Bryant, well respected in the field of art therapy, endorses Trevor Jeavons' desire to pass on the valuable lessons that he has learnt during his encounters with children referred to him for therapy and the spirit and imagination of many of those he portrays will remain with the reader for a long time.
A fierce, honest, elegant and often hilarious debunking of the great fallacies that drive modern medicine.
'A deeply fascinating and rousing book' Mail on Sunday.
'What makes this book a delightful, if unsettling read, is not just O'Mahony's scholarly and witty prose, but also his brutal honesty' The Times.
Seamus O'Mahony writes about the illusion of progress, the notion that more and more diseases can be 'conquered' ad infinitum. He punctures the idiocy of consumerism, the idea that healthcare can be endlessly adapted to the wishes of individuals.
He excoriates the claims of Big Science, the spending of vast sums on research follies like the Human Genome Project. And he highlights one of the most dangerous errors of industrialized medicine: an over-reliance on metrics, and a neglect of things that can't easily be measured, like compassion.
'With my job on Today, I have become obsessed with sleep. The Nocturnal Brain interweaves bizarre real life stories with cutting edge neurological science in the true tradition of Oliver Sacks. A fascinating read.' Martha Kearney, BBC Radio 4 'Casebooks of neurological disorders are often strange and wonderful, but this one is special.' Sunday Times 'The Nocturnal Brain will not promise to cure your insomnia, but it does make for an entertaining and thought-provoking bedtime read.' The Guardian What happens to our brain at night? Are we really fully asleep and if so how is it that some individuals end up doing what they do? Or can it be the case that perhaps the brain never fully goes to sleep and that in some individuals there is a disconnect between the sleeping part of their brain and the active part of their brain so that the two become confused? Does this happen to all of us in varying degrees and can the reverse be the case too - so that some individuals are actually asleep during the day while appearing to be awake?! In this ground-breaking book, Dr Guy Leschziner takes us on a fascinating journey through the nocturnal brain to illustrate the neuroscience behind nightmares, night terrors and sleep walking.

This handbook accommodates the South African Nursing Council's instructions and guidelines concerning the auxiliary nurse's training and scope of practice. The 11 chapters are split into several units, each unit focusing on a specific procedure or topic. Each unit starts with a statement of its educational aims, making it easier for the auxiliary nurse to carry out her/his tasks and for the educator to evaluate progress. The author cites reference sources at the end of each chapter to assist both the learner and the mentor. Explanatory illustrations accompany the straightforward and clearly written text.
We all know that food is medicine - yet going without food is one of the single best things you can do for your health. Short, doable fasts, when strategically timed, are an incredibly powerful metabolic intervention, dovetailing perfectly with a ketogenic diet to activate your body's fat-burning mode. This in turn can ward off insulin resistance, reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, optimize brain function, prevent neurological problems, support weight loss, and more. In this in-depth yet accessible guide, Dr. Joseph Mercola explores the profound health benefits that result when ketogenic living and well-planned fasting are combined. Topics include: - How our food is making us sick and what we can do about it - The physiology and mechanisms of fasting, including stem cell activation - How the cyclical ketogenic diet - with fasting included - differs from the conventional keto diet - How fasting works and how safe it is for you - How regular one-day fasts support fat burning and detoxification while minimizing hunger and side effects - How to monitor your progress with lab tests - And much more "This will be an exciting journey for you," Dr. Mercola writes. "I am beyond excited for you to implement what I consider to be one of the most powerful physical strategies to help you not only recover your health, but also improve it to levels you likely never believed were possible."
