What I Learned in Medical School: Personal Stories of Young Doctors

51wldjh6yml-_sx329_bo1204203200_-1

Like many an exclusive club, the medical profession subjects its prospective members to rigorous indoctrination: medical students are overloaded with work, deprived of sleep and normal human contact, drilled and tested and scheduled down to the last minute. Difficult as the regimen may be, for those who don’t fit the traditional mold—white, male, middle-to-upper class, and heterosexual—medical school can be that much more harrowing. This riveting book tells the tales of a new generation of medical students—students whose varied backgrounds are far from traditional. Their stories will forever alter the way we see tomorrow’s doctors.

In these pages, a black teenage mother overcomes seemingly insurmountable odds, an observant Muslim dons the hijab during training, an alcoholic hides her addiction. We hear the stories of an Asian refugee, a Mexican immigrant, a closeted Christian, an oversized woman—these once unlikely students are among those who describe their medical school experiences with uncommon candor, giving a close-up look at the inflexible curriculum, the pervasive competitive culture, and the daunting obstacles that come with being “different” in medical school. Their tales of courage are by turns poignant, amusing, eye-opening—and altogether unforgettable.

Humanistic Psychotherapies: Handbook of Research and Practice 2nd Edition

51tk7zyq0ul-_sx348_bo1204203200_

Humanistic psychotherapy is based on more than 70 years of psychological research, but there has been a surge of literature since the first edition of Humanistic Psychotherapies. This extensively updated volume highlights the flourishing evidence base for humanistic approaches, demonstrating that they are equal to or more effective than other therapeutic approaches. In fact, cornerstones of humanistic practice, such as therapist empathy and authentic emotional expression and experience, are essential to promoting positive client outcomes for non-humanistic practitioners as well.

In addition to a general review of research, the contributors focus on specific approaches, including: person-centered therapy, gestalt therapy, focusing-oriented therapy, existential therapy, emotion-focused therapy, relationship enhancement therapy, and child-centered play therapy.

Also discussed are important therapist factors and client variables that contribute to effective psychotherapy.
New findings are translated into practical guidelines for clinicians. Numerous case examples with vivid client¬ therapist dialogues illustrate how humanistic principles and approaches can be applied in actual practice not just with individuals, but also with couples, families, and children. The final chapter synthesizes the entire volume with a proposed model for optimal humanistic psychotherapeutic practice, based on 20 simple premises drawn from the best evidence available.

51j3rsz4k1l-_sx338_bo1204203200_

Clinical judgment is a critical aspect – perhaps the most critical aspect – of efficient, accurate, and cost-effective patient care. Focusing on essential clinical skills, On Rounds: 1000 Internal Medicine Pearls helps clinicians in training and in practice to identify the critical findings that will simplify complex clinical problems and lead to an accurate diagnosis. One thousand easy-to-remember clinical aphorisms, or “pearls,” help you distinguish the important findings from the incidental, pointing out the distinctive features amidst the mass of data that is accumulated in the evaluation of a sick patient, and leading to the development of mature clinical judgment.

  • Go “on rounds” with one of the most respected educators in internal medicine and learn from his nearly 50 years of clinical experience.
  • Focus on the areas that are often a source of confusion for students, trainees, and even seasoned practitioners.
  • Learn each pearl in a relevant clinical context, with tables, clinical images, and physiology information, where appropriate.
  • Recognize “black pearls:” statements that, although widely believed, are demonstrably false.
  • Improve your clinical judgment skills whether you’re a resident or an experienced clinician.
  • Carry these pocket-sized pearls with you for quick reference.
