Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common mental disorders affecting children and adolescents. The condition is characterized by a persistent pattern of behavioural symptoms including inattentiveness, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness associated with substantial impairment in social, academic, and/or occupational functioning. Clinical and research interest in the topic of ADHD has grown substantially in recent years but, despite this, there is still a lack of up-to-date reference texts devoted to the diagnosis, assessment, and management of patients with these conditions. Part of the Oxford Textbooks in Psychiatry series, the Oxford Textbook of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder attempts to bridge this gap by providing an authoritative, multi-disciplinary guide to the latest research developments in the diagnosis, assessment, and management of patients with ADHD. Organized into eight key sections, this textbook covers the aetiology, pathophysiology, epidemiology, clinical presentation, co-morbidity, clinical assessment, and clinical management of ADHD. Individual chapters address key topics such as the clinical assessment of ADHD in adults, and contain information on best practice, current diagnostic guidelines including DSM-5 and ICD-11, and key up-to-date references for further reading. Edited and written by an international group of recognized experts, the Oxford Textbook of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a comprehensive resource suitable for child and adolescent psychiatrists, adult psychiatrists, and psychiatric trainees, as well as child psychologists, paediatricians, psychiatric nurses, and other mental health care professionals.

Adult ADHD: Diagnostic Assessment and Treatment, Third Edition covers not only diagnostic assessment, but also comorbidity patterns as well as differential diagnosis of ADHD with for example bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder. The symptom overlap and misdiagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome in girls and women with the inattentive subtype of ADHD, ADD is explored. The chronic delayed sleep phase syndrome associated with ADHD based on disturbances in the circadian rhythm, and the possible consequences for general health (obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and cancer) are discussed. There are sections on ADHD and intelligence, criminality, sexuality, dyslexia and autism. Adult ADHD can be treated effectively but as yet the disorder is not always recognised by professionals and this book aims to help correct this. Diagnostic tools are included, such as the structured Diagnostic Interview for Adult ADHD (DIVA), and an ultra-short and somewhat longer screening tool, all based on the DSM-IV criteria for ADHD. Treatment options cover psychoeducation and motivation and individual and group coaching; long-acting stimulants and other new drugs for treating ADHD; use of melatonin to treat the delayed sleep-phase disorder. Useful information is included on the setting up and organisation of a department for adult ADHD with a multidisciplinary team. References, websites and useful international addresses have all been updated. Adult ADHD: Diagnostic Assessment and Treatment, Third Edition is intended for students, junior doctors/residents, psychologists, psychiatrists, other mental healthcare professionals and interested parties and provides a quick overview of the current state of the science and of the methods used in diagnosis and treatment. Adult ADHD: Diagnostic Assessment and Treatment, Third Edition was originally published by Pearson Assessment and Information BV, The Netherlands.

Welche Erfahrungen machen Patienten und Versicherte im deutschen Gesundheitssystem und wo sollten aus einer Bürgerperspektive Reformen ansetzen? Der Gesundheitsmonitor richtet seinen Fokus in der diesjährigen Ausgabe erneut auf diese zentralen Fragestellungen. Die Autorinnen und Autoren konnten auf der einzigartigen Datenbasis, die durch die Kooperation von Bertelsmann Stiftung und BARMER GEK nutzbar ist, spannende Antworten generieren. Die langjährige Erfassung von Befragungsergebnissen ermöglicht es, dass sich einige Beiträge des Gesundheitsmonitors 2013 sowohl mit der aktuellen Perspektive als auch mit Veränderungen in den Einstellungen der Bürger beschäftigen: Wie hat sich die Organspendebereitschaft in den letzten Jahren geändert? Welchem Wandel unterlag die Beurteilung der Kriterien und Verfahren zur Priorisierung medizinischer Leistungen? Welche Erfahrungen haben die Befragten im Bereich Pflege gemacht und wie wurde das Vorsorgeverhalten im Falle eigener Pflegebedürftigkeit davon beeinflusst? Wie gut ist das Wissen der Bevölkerung über Alzheimer bzw. Demenz und welche Einstellung herrscht gegenüber dem Krankheitsbild und den Erkrankten vor? Ferner geht es um Themen, die die aktuelle gesundheitspolitische Diskussion über die ordnungspolitische Ausgestaltung des deutschen Gesundheitssystems bestimmen, wie Zuzahlungen und die Finanzierungsreform.

Die neurowissenschaftliche Erforschung der Achtsamkeit Trotz ihrer langen Geschichte ist wenig über die neurophysiologischen Prozesse bekannt, die beim Meditieren ablaufen. Der Achtsamkeitsmeditation wurde in der psychologischen und neurowissenschaftlichen Forschung bislang die größte Aufmerksamkeit zuteil. Dieses Buch gibt einen prägnanten Überblick über die Studienergebnisse und zeigt auf, wie Achtsamkeitstraining die mentale Aktivität verbessern und die neuronalen Verbindungen im Gehirn ebenso beeinflussen kann wie Prozesse im Körper. Im Fokus stehen dabei vor allem die Aspekte Aufmerksamkeitskontrolle, Emotionsregulation und Selbstbewusstheit. Die Anwendung von Achtsamkeit im Bildungs- und Gesundheitsbereich sowie bei psychischen Störungen ist ebenso Gegenstand der vorgestellten Studien wie effektive Stressbewältigung und Voraussetzungen für eine gelungene Achtsamkeitspraxis. Yi-Yuan Tang führt auch aus, dass die Wirksamkeit von Meditationstraining zwischen Individuen schwankt, und liefert eine Orientierung in Bezug darauf, wer am wahrscheinlichsten davon profitieren dürfte.

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in adulthood is a prevalent and impairing disorder. While medications have been effective in treating adult ADHD, the majority of individuals treated with medications still have symptoms that require additional skills and symptom management strategies. This Second Edition of Mastering Your Adult ADHD is thoroughly updated to present the most current, empirically supported treatment strategies in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for coping with symptoms of adult ADHD. The Therapist Guide provides clinicians with effective means of teaching adult clients skills that have been scientifically tested and shown to help them cope with ADHD. The program has been updated to include the optional use of technology and smart phones to improve organization and planning. Core modules cover the development of systems for keeping track of appointments and tasks, reducing distractibility, and improving adaptive thinking skills, and there's an optional module on reducing procrastination. Information is also provided regarding holding an informational meeting with a spouse, partner, or family member. The step-by-step, session-by-session descriptions are a practical resource for therapists who deliver the treatment. The companion Client Workbook contains all of the necessary information for participating in the practical CBT intervention. It includes worksheets, forms, and a link to an assessment measure that can be used to gauge progress during treatment.

Worldwide longitudinal studies performed since the 1970s have clearly shown that ADHD persists into adulthood. These findings have stimulated researchers to develop the therapeutic approaches for adult patients, especially in European countries where scientific and clinical interest in ADHD has increased.. In this volume, leading experts from Europe and the United States present their long-term results in order to provide an overview of important aspects of ADHD across the lifespan. These results include epidemiology, neurobiology, psychopathology, longitudinal course, comorbidity and social impairment associated with ADHD. Topics include diagnostic problems and therapeutic options as well as molecular genetic studies. Further, morphological and functional imaging studies in adult ADHD are reviewed, as well as the very important issue of comorbidity. Providing an excellent source of up-to-date information, this publication is essential reading for psychiatrists, neurologists, geneticists, psychotherapists, physicians and other therapists working with ADHD patients.

Haben wir vergessen, dass Schler geistige Wesen sind und ber unendliches Potenzial verfgen? Als Insiderin dokumentiert Marta Marchisan, dass selbst in einem schwerbehinderten Schler oftmals viel mehr steckt als wir glauben. Sie entlarvt den von der Gesellschaft aufrecht erhaltenen Mythos um Lernschwchen und ADHS und deckt die wahren Ursachen auf, die manche Schler am Lernen hindern. Marchisan bietet praktikable Lsungen fr das Problem des Analphabetismus an und gibt uns mit ihren Anekdoten vom Kmpfen und berleben ihrer Schler in einem suppressiven Bildungssystem wieder Hoffnung. Dr. Marchisan ist fr mich mehr als Gold wert. Sie hat einem Menschen, der niemals im Leben etwas Wertvolles geleistet htte, den Weg gewiesen. Sie hat mir geholfen zu verstehen, wer ich bin, und mir gezeigt, dass ich alles erreichen kann. Simone, 12. Klasse, Hanau, Deutschland Sie hat mir das Lesen beigebracht, als es sonst niemand konnte.

Embrace Leadership to Combat All Forms of Prejudice Is there a “nigger” in you? If you have attempted to avoid and/or escape oppression, been made to feel as if you are a problem, been treated as “lesser than” or even like a criminal, all just because you are different in a given context, then what Dr. J. W. Wiley asserts through the title of this book inescapably applies to you. Through any of our multiple identities—stereotyped, marginalized, or ostracized by our socio-economic class, level of education, gender, disability, age, race, sexual orientation, or religion—we are all potential victims as well as perpetrators of denigrating language and discrimination. Dr. Wiley borrows the agency of nigger, arguably the quintessential, most universally known term of disparagement of those negatively considered the Other, to re-frame the word as no longer just a racial term but one that symbolizes many of the ways we disrespect or bully one another, are inconsiderate of one another, prejudge one another, and internalize our demonization. He defines the word in a way that demonstrates its equivalence to other dysfunctional language (retard, bitch, fag, trailer trash, etc.) that suggests that those so targeted are unworthy of consideration in our society. By creating a conversation around such language, Dr. Wiley challenges us to recognize that, when we give in to our prejudices and stereotypes, the “nigger in you” is what we are apt to see when we encounter those different from ourselves. The author, who is Director of the Center for Diversity, Pluralism, and Inclusion for the State University of New York–Plattsburg, a Lecturer in Philosophy and Interdisciplinary Studies, and president of his own consulting business, engages diversity in a uniquely inclusive way and as inseparable from social justice. By dissecting the offensive language we often use, consciously or unconsciously, Dr. Wiley provokes us to recognize that, since every one of us has multiple identities beyond just the color of our skin, it is virtually impossible for most of us not to have felt the sting of oppression, or the power of privilege that some of those same multiple identities may confer on us. Consequently, it is morally incumbent on us to contest and ultimately transcend oppression wherever we encounter it, to respect the humanity of those different from us, and become allies in the war to protect and advance people’s right to be different. Through personal stories, scholarship, poetry, commentary on current affairs, lyrics, and his experiences as a Black man both rooted in African American culture and the culture of the academy who daily has to navigate and negotiate multiple worlds, Dr. Wiley leads us on a journey toward social justice. In doing so, he empowers us—in whatever sphere, private or public, in which we have some agency—to embrace our leadership moments by engaging those who would perpetrate dysfunctional language or behavior, and help create a world in which differences are respected and validated.

In the medical treatment of children and teenagers and the accompaniment of their parents, alternative therapies, homoeopathy, anthroposophic medicine, psychology and psychosomatics play an ever greater role alongside conventional, science-based medicine. Before a therapy can be successful, an individual diagnosis must be made, taking somatic symptoms, mental and emotional aspects and the developmental stage of the child into account. The background and context of the illness must be determined as well: Why has this child developed this particular disease at this particular moment? In this way your therapy can activate the child’s own disease-fighting resources and support it in developing its potential. Ten years after the first edition, Individual Pediatrics has been completely revised for its fourth edition. Current developments in the field of epigenetics, questions about vaccination, sun protection, and vitamin D are covered, as are newly developed and refined treatment concepts for disorders such as inadequate ventilation of the middle ear, bronchial asthma, neurodermatitis, and ADHS. New case reports have been added, and all drug data have been updated.

Unser Gesundheitssystem gehört zu den besten der Welt und zu den größten Wirtschaftsfaktoren Deutschlands. Rund 5,2 Mio. Menschen arbeiten in der Gesundheitswirtschaft und die Gesamtausgaben belaufen sich auf ca. 300 Mrd. Euro pro Jahr. Die Unternehmen der privaten Krankenversicherung versorgen ihre Versicherten je nach Tarif mit guten bis hervorragenden Gesundheitsleistungen. Es gibt allerdings eine kleine Anzahl von Behandlungen, die als „nicht medizinisch notwendig“ eingestuft werden müssen. Der Autor widmet sich in seinem Buch explizit diesen Behandlungsfällen aus der versicherungsmedizinischen Praxis, in denen die private Krankenversicherung (teilweise) nicht leisten konnte. Wichtige Gründe hierfür sind u. a. unwirksame Präparate oder Behandlungsmethoden, nicht indizierte Diagnostik oder Therapie sowie Überdiagnostik und Übertherapie. Viele geschilderte Fälle aus der Praxis sind so interessant oder gar abstrus, dass sie einfach zum Nachdenken oder auch zum Schmunzeln anregen. Das Werk richtet sich insbesondere an Mitarbeiter der Leistungs- und Rechtsabteilungen der PKV Unternehmen und an medizinische Gutachter, sowie an alle Ärzte, die mit den Besonderheiten der PKV befasst sind. Aber auch interessierte Versicherte, die wissen wollen, für welche Behandlungen eine Erstattung aus welchen Gründen möglicherweise nicht zu erwarten ist, werden hier angesprochen.
