A collection of philosophical and scientific papers illustrating diverse viewpoints on the mind-body problem.
A groundbreaking work of science that confirms, for the first time, the independent existence of the mind-and demonstrates the possibilities for human control over the workings of the brain. Conventional science has long held the position that 'the mind' is merely an illusion, a side effect of electrochemical activity in the physical brain. Now in paperback, Dr Jeffrey Schwartz and Sharon Begley's groundbreaking work, The Mind and the Brain, argues exactly the opposite: that the mind has a life of its own. Dr Schwartz, a leading researcher in brain dysfunctions, and Wall Street Journal science columnist Sharon Begley demonstrate that the human mind is an independent entity that can shape and control the functioning of the physical brain. Their work has its basis in our emerging understanding of adult neuroplasticity-the brain's ability to be rewired not just in childhood, but throughout life, a trait only recently established by neuroscientists. Through decades of work treating patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), Schwartz made an extraordinary finding: while following the therapy he developed, his patients were effecting significant and lasting changes in their own neural pathways. It was a scientific first: by actively focusing their attention away from negative behaviors and toward more positive ones, Schwartz's patients were using their minds to reshape their brains-and discovering a thrilling new dimension to the concept of neuroplasticity. The Mind and the Brain follows Schwartz as he investigates this newly discovered power, which he calls self-directed neuroplasticity or, more simply, mental force. It describes his work with noted physicist Henry Stapp and connects the concept of 'mental force' with the ancient practice of mindfulness in Buddhist tradition. And it points to potential new applications that could transform the treatment of almost every variety of neurological dysfunction, from dyslexia to stroke-and could lead to new strategies to help us harness our mental powers. Yet as wondrous as these implications are, perhaps even more important is the philosophical dimension of Schwartz's work. For the existence of mental force offers convincing scientific evidence of human free will, and thus of man's inherent capacity for moral choice.
Siegel, who directs the Mindsight Institute and teaches psychiatry at UCLA, offers a comprehensive guide to his approach to the psychotherapeutic relationship. Interweaving ideas of mind, brain, and relationship, and demonstrating their interplay in distinct areas of thought and behavior, Siegel distills his theories into a fully realized model that therapists can apply to their interaction with clients. The exercises and explanations are geared towards training therapists in developing mindful behavior, showing how this behavior comes to affect neural reactions in the brain, and how mindfulness increases the level of connection in the therapist-client relationship. Written for psychotherapists of all levels of experience, this relatively small volume is unusually substantial in its content, encompassing as it does an overarching structure for practitioners to apply in their practice.

Teasdale (Medical Research Council's Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, Cambridge, England) describe an approach to treating depression that combines the Eastern meditative practices and perspectives of mindfulness meditation, with the Western psychological epistemologies and practices of cognitive therapy. They speak to clinicians and researchers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Suttle (Moredun Foundation, Britain) updates the detailed reference for veterinarians and keepers of livestock to incorporate findings from the past decade. His goal is to find a useful middle ground between basic science that looks at nutrition on a cellular or molecular level, and studies that are thinly disguised advertisements for commercial products. He discusses the requirements for minerals, natural sources of minerals, assessing and controlling mineral status in livestock, a number of specific minerals such as potassium and iodine, occasionally beneficial elements, potentially toxic elements, the design of supplementation trials for assessing mineral deprivation, and minerals and humans.
Among the five nations authorized under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty to possess nuclear weapons, China has the smallest nuclear force and maintains the most restrained nuclear posture. In The Minimum Means of Reprisal, Jeffrey Lewis examines patterns in Chinese defense investments, strategic force deployments, and arms control behavior to develop an alternative assessment of China's nuclear forces. The Minimum Means of Reprisal finds that China's nuclear deployment and arms control patterns stem from the belief that deterrence is relatively unaffected by changes in the size, configuration, and readiness of nuclear forces. As a result, Lewis argues, Chinese policy has tended to sacrifice offensive capability in favor of greater political control and lower economic costs. The future of cooperative security arrangements in space will depend largely on the U. S. -Chinese relationship. Lewis warns that changes in U. S. defense strategy, including the development of new strategic forces and the weaponization of space, will prevent the United States from reassuring China in the event that its leaders begin to lose confidence in their restrained deterrent. The result may further damage the already weakened arms control regime and increase the threat to the United States and the world. Lewis provides policy guidance for those interested in the U. S. -Chinese security relationship and in global security arrangements more generally.
Did the Supreme Court's upholding of Miranda in 2000 adversely impact law enforcement, as conservatives have complained, or was it a reaffirmation of individual rights? Welsh S. White looks at both sides of the issue, emphasizing that Miranda represents just one stage in the Court's ongoing struggle to accommodate a fundamental conflict between law enforcement and civil liberties, and assessing whether the Court's present decisions (including Miranda) strike an appropriate balance between promoting law enforcement's interest in obtaining reliable evidence and the individual's interest in being protected from overreaching police practices.

Models for Multidisciplinary Arrangements: A State-By-State Review of Options (APA Practitioner's Toolbox Series)by Will Mcdermott Emory Mcdermott
As a result of the expansion in insurance coverage for mental health care services, a substantial percentage of Americans have third-party insurance for professional psychological services. Increasingly, however, this development is creating significant problems for psychologists as more payers are limiting patients' ability to choose their own therapists as well as the number of treatment sessions that will be covered. This book discusses options for mental health professionals on a state-by-state basis, as well as limitations. Good reference tool for mental health professionals.
