Clinical Skills in Infant Mental Health: The First Three Years (Second Edition) 2nd Edition

What is mental health in infancy and early childhood? Why is it important? How does the infant-parent relationship influence development, and how do these early experiences shape our lives? How can clinical assessment and intervention focus on these early relationships to improve developmental outcomes for infants, young children, and their families? This thoroughly updated and expanded second edition provides an evidence-based and practical approach to assessment of young children and their families across diverse settings. The impact of attachment issues, prematurity, trauma, parental mental illness, substance abuse, and other adverse circumstances is clearly explained. Additionally, the quality of parenting and the importance of early relationships are addressed. Written for a wide range of professionals – including maternal and child health nurses, general practitioners, psychiatrists, child protection workers, early childhood educators, and community and mental health workers – this edition has two new chapters on intervention and professional issues, such as training, ethics, and advocacy. The growing understanding of factors that influence infant psychological development, and influence the social and emotional well-being of young children and their families, make this book an essential reference for all health care practitioners and early childhood professionals.

Autism, The Way Forward: A Self-Help Guide to Teaching Children on the Autistic Spectrum

This book was written for all those families, who, due to lack of funding, are unable to access therapeutic means of intervention.

The book is written as though it were a therapy session, with would-be problems dealt with as they arise. The journey this book takes its readers on is a journey into the heart of a treatment process, albeit an imaginary one, where the daily problems that one may encounter on such a program are worked through using behavioral modification and psychotherapeutic methodology. The book explains what may be going wrong on the program, what to do to test assumptions, and what to do when all else has failed. The book works from the premise that children with autism are not immune from emotional upsets and goes on to demonstrate how other forms of interventions can be combined and be shown to have positive results. The case histories within the book are altered ever so slightly so as not to distort the facts but rather to protect the children from being identified.

Lymph Nodes (Demos Surgical Pathology Guides) 1st Edition

The Demos Surgical Pathology Guides series presents in summary and visual form the basic knowledge base that every practicing pathologist needs every working day. Series volumes cover the major specialty areas of surgical pathology, and coverage emphasizes the key entities and diagnoses that pathologists will see in practice, and that they must know whether in training or practice. The emphasis is on the basic morphology with newer techniques represented where they are frequently used. The series provides a handy summary and quick reference that any pathology resident or fellow will find useful. Experienced practitioners will find the series valuable as a portable “”refresher course”” or review tool.

Lymph Nodes presents the full gamut of lymph node disorders and diagnoses that pathologists commonly see in practice. Traditional morphology and histopathologic features, coupled with clinical data, are emphasized. Chapters are complemented with both high-power images for analysis of cytologic features of lymph node cells as well as low-power images for assessment of lymph node architecture.

The chapters cover infectious lymphadenopathies, reactive lymphadenopathies, lymphadenopathies associated with systemic disorders, lymph node inclusions, spindle cell neoplasms of lymph nodes, foreign body lymphadenopathies, mature B-cell neoplasms, precursor lymphoid neoplasms, Hodgkin lymphoma, and more. Lymph Nodes is highly illustrated throughout and provides residents and clinicians with a quick reference for rotation or review.

Protein Expression in Down Syndrome Brain (Springer Medicine) 2001st Edition

31zop5krfdl-_sx385_bo1204203200_

When we worked on Down Syndrome brain in the past we have been focus­ ing on adult brain. This was a major step forwards as most work on Down Syndrome was carried out on fibroblasts or other tissues and, moreover, we introduced proteomics to identify and quantify brain protein expression. We considered evaluation of brain protein expression in Down Syndrome brain by and by more important than gene hunting at the nucleic acid level realiz­ ing the long unpredictable way from RNA to protein. The availability of fetal samples along with the proteomic appproach stimulated and reinforced studies on Down Syndrome brain. And indeed, it was found out that some observations on aberrant protein expression in adult Down Syndrome brain could not be verified in the fetal samples indi­ cating that neurodegeneration in adult Down Syndrome brain may have been responsible rather than trisomy 21. Using brains from the early second trimester of gestation led to the generation of a series of clues for the under­ standing of aberrant wiring of the brain in Down Syndrome and enabled the determination of altered key functions in early life; e. g. undetectably low drebrin was observed in Down Syndrome cortex, an integral constituent and marker for dendritic spines, main effectors of cross-talk between neurons. In addition, evaluation of the nature of the neuronal deficits in terms of neuro­ transmission markers could be established as well as neuronal density in fetal Down Syndrome cortex.
