"Lays out a holistic paradigm for advanced psychiatric nursing (APN) practice by drawing upon a neuroscience of information processing, human development, attachment theory, and trauma. . . (and) explains the essentials of psychotherapy by melding principles underlying the therapeutic alliance, adaptive information processing (AIP), change, and a hierarchically arranged treatment format that fosters healing through the resolution of dysfunctional memory this important text holds true to the historical basis for psychiatric nursing being organized around phases and principles of the nurse-patient relationship." -Margaret England, PhD, RN, CNS "Perspectives in Psychiatric Care" "Wheeler offers the field a scholarly training manual. . . grounded in Shapiro's (2001) adaptive information processing paradigm . . (where) the brain is viewed as an information processing system with innate self-healing mechanisms that regulate its internal environment to survive and to maintain a stable, constant condition through dynamic regulation." -Robert M. Greenfield, PhD "Journal of Trauma & Dissociation" This is a holistic, evidence-based approach to practicing psychotherapy for both the experienced and neophyte advanced practice nurse. Integrating neuroscience with psychotherapeutic theory, this award-winning text presents clear, step-by-step guidelines for techniques that reflect the wealth of experience garnered by Dr. Wheeler, an APN clinician of many years. The book unites disparate psychotherapeutic approaches into a model that is concise and straightforward, yet sufficiently comprehensive to provide a framework for practice that highlights the most useful models, principles, and techniques of psychotherapy. This second edition expands Peplau's interpersonal paradigm, validated by neuroscience and attachment research, from a two-person model to a more contemporary holistic perspective. It presents a practice framework that is based on relationship science and Adaptive Information Processing as an explanatory mechanism. The text educates APNs in the developmental and psychodynamic issues that are critical to accurate assessment and subsequent treatment. It also features several new chapters focusing on Motivational Interviewing, Integrating Complementary Modalities, Cognitive Processing Therapy for Trauma, EMDR, and Working with the Substance Abusing Client. The book features a hierarchical framework for treatment and is replete with case illustrations and practice examples. Also included are helpful communication techniques, assessment tools, and forms for practice. New topics in the second edition: Motivational Interviewing Peplau's Interpersonal Psychotherapy from a Holistic Perspective Integrating Complementary Modalities Cognitive Processing Therapy for Trauma Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Working with the Substance Abusing Client
Manual of Regulation-Focused Psychotherapy for Children (RFP-C) with Externalizing Behaviors: A Psychodynamic Approach offers a new, short term psychotherapeutic approach to working dynamically with children who suffer from irritability, oppositional defiance and disruptiveness. RFP-C enables clinicians to help by addressing and detailing how the child's externalizing behaviors have meaning which they can convey to the child. Using clinical examples throughout, Hoffman, Rice and Prout demonstrate that in many dysregulated children, RFP-C can:
This handbook is the first to provide a manualized, short-term dynamic approach to the externalizing behaviors of childhood, offering organizing framework and detailed descriptions of the processes involved inRFP-C. Supplying clinicians with a systematic individual psychotherapy as an alternative or complement to PMT, CBT and psychotropic medication, it also shifts focus away from simply helping parents manage their children's misbehaviors. Significantly, the approach shows that clinical work with these children is compatible with understanding the children's brain functioning, and posits that contemporary affect-oriented conceptualizations of defense mechanisms are theoretically similar to the neuroscience construct of implicit emotion regulation, promoting an interface between psychodynamics and contemporary academic psychiatry and psychology.
Manual of Regulation-Focused Psychotherapy for Children (RFP-C) with Externalizing Behaviors: A Psychodynamic Approachis a comprehensive tool capable of application at all levels of professional training, offering a new approach for psychoanalysts, child and adolescent counselors, psychotherapists and mental health clinicians in fields including social work, psychology and psychiatry.
