In recent years, interest in non-Western curative techniques among Americans has grown by leaps and bounds. Integrative Body-Mind-Spirit Social Work is the first book to strongly connect Western therapeutic techniques with Eastern philosophy and practices, while also providing a comprehensive and pragmatic agenda for social work, and mental health professionals. This breakthrough text, written by a cast of highly regarded researchers from both Asia and America, presents a holistic, therapeutic approach that ties Eastern philosophy and practical techniques to Western forms of therapy in order to help bring about positive, transformative changes in individuals and families. Integrative therapy focuses on the mind-body-spirit relationship, recognizes spirituality as a fundamental domain of human existence, acknowledges and utilizes the mind's power as well as the body's, and reaches beyond self-actualization or symptom reduction to broaden a perception of self that connects individuals to a larger sense of themselves and to their communities. Here, the authors provide a pragmatic, step-by-step description of assessment and treatment techniques that employ an integrative, holistic perspective. They begin by establishing the conceptual framework of integrative body-mind-spirit social work, then expertly describe, step-by-step, assessment and treatment techniques that utilize integrative and holistic perspectives. Several case studies demonstrate the approach in action, such as one with breast cancer patients who participated in body-mind-spirit and social support groups and another in which trauma survivors used meditation to get onto a path of healing. These examples provide solid empirical evidence that integrative body-mind-spirit social work is indeed a practical therapeutic approach in bringing about tangible changes in clients. The authors also discuss ethical issues and give tips for learning integrative body-mind-spirit social work. Professionals in social work, psychology, counseling, and nursing, as well as graduate students in courses on integral, alternative, or complementary clinical practice will find this a much-needed resource that complements the growing interest in alternatives to traditional Western psychotherapy.

It explores the full range of theoretical approaches that drive social work treatment and knowledge development, from psychoanalysis to crisis intervention. This treasure trove of practice knowledge equips professionals with a broad array of theoretical approaches, each of which shine a spotlight on a different aspect of the human condition. Emphasizing the importance of a broad-based theoretical approach to practice, it helps the reader avoid the pitfalls of becoming overly identified with a narrow focus that limits their understanding of clients and their contexts. This sweeping overview of the field untangles the increasingly complex problems, ideologies, and value sets that define contemporary social work practice. The result is an essential A-to-Z reference that charts the full range of theoretical approaches available to social workers regardless of their setting or specialty.

Every fifteen seconds someone commits a crime of domestic violence in the United States, and most violators will be court-mandated to receive group treatment. Outcome studies of traditional treatment programs (those with confrontational or educational approaches) indicate high rates of dropping out and low effectiveness, lending urgency to the need to find an alternative method. This book describes a cutting-edge treatment approach that creates effective, positive changes in domestic violence offenders. Solution-focused therapy focuses on holding offenders accountable and responsible for building solutions, rather than emphasizing their problems and deficits. By focusing on "solution-talk" instead of "problem-talk," clients are assisted in developing useful goals and solution behaviors that are then amplified, supported, and reinforced through a solution-building process. The book will be of great interest to professionals and graduate students in social work, psychology, and counseling.

This is the first book to call for a major paradigm shift in applied sport psychology by providing a wealth of systematic, scientifically validated research in a field where assessment and treatment has often been haphazard. In his quest to bring sport psychology to a higher level of validity, Dr. Carlstedt describes the most current assessment methods, intervention procedures, and promising research that are critical for use in evidence-based practice. These assessment and treatment methods are based on 25 years of rigorous scientific approaches and principles that incorporate the most sophisticated research methods now available. The book describes the mechanisms that influence peak performance or psychological performance deficits and the mental training process, and provides procedures that will take the guesswork out of typical assessment and mental training. It offers tools with which practitioners can reexamine their modus operandi and critically explore the mechanism of interaction outcomes. To this end, the book includes extensive data sets on personality, behavioral tendencies, mind-body responses, and performance outcome. Dr. Carlstedt advocates moving beyond compartmentalized therapeutic sessions in the office to directly observe athletic performance during training and actual competition. The text also contains individual and team case studies to enhance its focus on individualized, efficacy-tested protocols for each individual athlete. Key Features: Presents a detailed client-centered assessment and intervention model grounded in technology-supported, step-by-step procedures, followed by efficacy testing Focuses on the importance of empirical scrutiny and individualized, efficacy-tested protocols for each individual athlete Describes the Carlstedt Protocol containing a visualization efficiency test among many other technologically based assessment and training tools Provides a roadmap for achieving a gold-standard system of accountability Practitioners will learn how to work within Carlstedt's integrative model to improve athlete performance and contribute to the advancement of evidence-based applied sport psychology.

Clients will be able to (1) Build safety, stability, regulation & flexibility, (2) Significantly reduce/eliminate trauma response symptoms, and (3) Increase engagement with others, life & meaningful goals. "Drs. Marie Dezelic andGabrielGhanoum havecreated a comprehensive and innovative manual for the meaning-centered treatment approach to heal past trauma. Their work and approach are commendable; their ability to convey it to other clinicians is superb." Amir Levine, M.D., Co-Author of ATTACHED: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How it can Help You Find and Keep Love "To categorizeTrauma Treatment - Healing the Whole Person asa conventional "manual" would only marginalize its inherent value as a supportive resource for all people experiencing life transitions, whatever they may be. Informed by Viktor Frankl's System of Logotherapy and Existential Analysis, and guided by their own innovative model of meaning-centered trauma treatment, Drs. Dezelic and Ghanoumaptly demonstrate howfinding meaning in life-under ALL circumstances-is both within us, and within reach. Importantly, it is along this pathway to meaning where the healing process ultimately takes place and where wholeness in spirit, mind, and body can be found." Alex Pattakos, PhD, Co-Author of Prisoners of Our Thoughts: Viktor Frankl's Principles for Discovering Meaning in Life and Work; and The OPA! Way: Finding Joy & Meaning in Everyday Life & Work "The paradigm shift in the traditional treatment model is currently upon us; the idea behind living a fulfilling and authentic life is paramount in the therapeutic community and addiction industry. The missing links are self-actualization, self-transcendence, and meaning in the everyday experience when talking about recovery and sobriety. Dr. Dezelic and Dr. Ghanoum providea clear and concise trauma training platform for professionals across disciplines where meaning is woven throughout all of the interventions." Cali Estes, PhD, Author of The Recovery Coach Workbook "How do we heal from the pain of traumatic events? How do we survive in the face of unavoidable suffering and loss? Once again, Dezelic and Ghanoum have developed innovative, colorful and informative Conceptual Pictographs to illustrate their model of recovery. TTFP is flexible enough to be appropriate for individual and group counseling, as well as for self-exploration. This manual is an invaluable addition to the treatment plan for clinicians dedicated to helping trauma survivors heal from and discover meaning in the face of tragedy and sorrow." Ann-Marie Neale, PhD, Diplomate in Logotherapy, Editor of Meaning-Centered Therapy Manual: LTEA Brief Therapy Protocol for Group & Individual Sessions; and Meaning-Centered Therapy Workbook: Based on Viktor Frankl's Logotherapy & Existential Analysis"

Also presented are practical strategies for integrating mindfulness into clinical training.
