Handbook Of Neurologic Music Therapy from the Author: Michael H. Thaut. Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) is a form of music therapy developed for people suffering from cognitive, sensory, or motor dysfunctions - arising from neurological diseases of the nervous system. People who can benefit from this therapy include sufferers from: stroke, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson's and Huntington's disease, cerebral palsy, Alzheimer's disease, autism, and other neurological diseases affecting cognition, movement, and communication (e.g., MS, Muscular Dystrophy, etc). The Handbook of Neurologic Music Therapy is a comprehensive landmark text presenting a new and revolutionary model of music in rehabilitation, therapy and medicine that is scientifically validated and clinically tested. Each of the 20 clinical techniques is described in detail with specific exercises, richly illustrated and with pertinent background information regarding research and clinical diagnoses. The book is a 'must have' for all neurologic music therapists and those who want to become one, clinicians, university faculty, and students alike. Physicians and therapists from other disciplines will find this tome an important guide to provide new insight how music can contribute significantly to brain rehabilitation and how Neurologic Music Therapists can be effective interdisciplinary providers in patient care.

Neurological Physiotherapy from the Author: Cecily Partridge. There is a surfeit of writing about evidence-based practice which is often difficult to relate to the actual treatment of patients. This book however, starts with real patients and their problems, then turns to specialist clinicians from different philosophies describe how they would treat that patient. This means that the contents are directly relevant to clinical practice. The authors have provided a generous list of references to support their choice of treatment. The book will be of interest to a wide audience including physiotherapy clinicians and researchers, others in the health care teams treating patients with neurological conditions and managers organising these services. It will also be valuable for both undergraduate and postgraduate therapists studying neurology. Contents: ? Section One - Single Incident Neurology - Case Reports: stroke; head injury; incomplete spinal injury; complete spinal injury ? Section Two - Progressive Disorders - Case Reports: Parkinson?s Disease; Multiple Sclerosis

Salud Mental Comunitaria from the Author: Ana María MARCOS DEL CANO. Uno de los problemas más acuciantes de nuestra sociedad es el aumento de trastornos psíquicos en todas las franjas de edad de la población, con el consiguiente riesgo de exclusión social y de pérdida de potencialidad de todo el grupo social. En este momento urge pensar sobre aquellas cuestiones emergentes que hacen tambalear el fundamento de la convivencia grupal, que es la persona, sujeto desde la cual se crea todo el tejido y entramado social.

Neuropsychological Rehabilitation from the Author: Chad A. Noggle, PhD, ABN. "Neuropsychological Rehabilitation provides useful introductory material and backgroundinformation on various disorders, assessments, and rehabilitative interventions for adult andgeriatric populations...This book is essential for psychologists or clinical neuropsychologists who have a stronginterest in understanding the current medical aspects of neuropsychological rehabilitation."--PsycCRITIQUES This volume disseminates knowledge about the most advanced practices and techniques in the rehabilitation of neuropsychological deficits, covering both specific neuropsychological domains and approaches in neurorehabilitation. It adheres to the philosophy that it is not enough to identify a deficit or diagnose a disease unless doing so helps to direct rehabilitation efforts to improve function. Intended to advance clinical skills, the book goes beyond surface diagnostic practice to foster rehabilitative efforts in response to residual deficits and disease. The volume begins by addressing the foundations of neuropsychology in rehabilitation and discussing, in depth, domain-specific rehabilitation practices, with a focus on functioning. This is followed by a discussion of supplemental applications and practices that go beyond function-specific methodology including neuroimaging and pharmacological agents. Also covered is the role of system/environmental manipulation and transitioning strategies. The final section attends to those presentations/groupings most commonly seen in rehabilitation practice for which there is no prototypical form. Key Features: Presents in depth the most advanced clinical applications for neuropsychological rehabilitation Covers neuropsychological rehabilitation in terms of specific cognitive domains (attention, language, memory) and approaches to and practices in neurorehabilitation (neuroimaging, vocational rehabilitation, pharmacological rehabilitation) Written by the foremost scholars in the field

Patient Care In Neurology from the Author: Adrian C. Williams. This book addresses modern attitudes to, and management of, the common neurological conditions, reflecting the shift in clinical neurology from being a largely diagnostic service to becoming a specialty based on treatment, longterm education and support of patients. Throughout, the emphasis is on developing a close working relationship between neurologists, psychiatrists, rehabilitation staff and specialist nurses, and the importance of the team approach to patient care, including consideration of the patient's own experience of their situation and the role of community services such as lay societies and charities. This is the only text presenting this holistic approach to neurological care. The aim of this book is to stimulate debate about the best service provision for neurology, covering considerations relevant to the commissioning of services, running outpatient clinics, transcultural issues and the role of the nurse specialist. The book assesses the role of neurogenetics in preventive neurology and opportunities for the continued application of gene therapy techniques. Also covered are the psychosomatic conditions often faced by a neurologist and the management of the secondary psychological results of organic neurological disease.
