The 11th Hour

by Kristine Scarrow

Annika Dietty thinks her future is with Dylan Sopick — until they run away together. One day, after weeks of secret planning, seventeen-year-old Annika Dietty leaves home at dawn to run away with her boyfriend, the charming and popular Dylan Sopick. She tried telling her friends and family how amazing Dylan is, but seeing as they all seem set against the relationship, she’s decided their only chance is to run away together. But not everything goes according to plan, and Dylan seems to be having more and more trouble dealing with every obstacle they encounter. At first Annika is sympathetic, knowing that he’s had a harder life than she has, but very soon Dylan’s behaviour becomes unsettling, and Annika realizes that her safety is at stake. She finally admits to herself that Dylan needs support that she can’t provide. She wants to get him help — if she’ll get the chance.

12 Steps on Buddha's Path

by Sylvia Boorstein Laura S.

12 Steps on Buddha's Path is an inspiring firsthand account of what happens when life seems hopeless and the miracle of finding out that it's anything but. The author describes her own journey of recovery from alcoholism - an astonishing passage through strange and frightening territory - and marks out the path that allowed her to emerge from that darkness as a wise and compassionate person living a life that is joyous and free. This book is a powerful and enriching synthesis of the 12-Step recovery programs and the Noble Eightfold Path of Buddhism. It is sure to appeal to anyone touched by addiction, including those looking for new ways to understand and work with the tried-and-true 12-Step system. Tens of millions of Americans suffer from alcoholism and other forms of dependence, and 12 Steps on Buddha's Path offers hope and help for any one of them. Though writing anonymously out of deep respect for 12-Step policies, the author is in fact a well-known professional author, deeply involved in the recovery and meditation communities.

13 Almas

by Sara De Miguel Júlio Machado

O meu nome é Sara. Quando tinha 13 anos diagnosticaram-me um pequeno tumor benigno no úmero. Os médicos não lhe deram muita importância, disseram que, como estava em idade de crescimento, com certeza que se reabsorveria por si mesmo. Eu continuei, com certa inconsciência própria da idade, com a minha vida de adolescente. Terminei o liceu com boas notas, sobrevivi a uma situação familiar muito difícil, e tive as minhas primeiras experiências como pessoa adulta. Decidi estudar psicologia porque gosto das pessoas, mas não gosto de as ver sofrer, e pensava poder ajudar os meus semelhantes a sentirem-se melhor consigo mesmos e com aquilo que os rodeia. O tumor estabilizou até que, quando tinha 19 anos, cresceu de forma súbita e rápida. Invadiu toda a zona do úmero e tive de ser operada com caráter de urgência. Removeram-me o tumor e fizeram-me um excerto de ósseo da anca com osso artificial. Precisei de mais de um ano e meio para recuperar parte da mobilidade. Foi um processo lento e doloroso, sobretudo a nível emocional, já que implicou ter uma vida de pessoa doente enquanto todos os meus amigos tinham uma vida "normal". Foi uma experiência que me afetou muito a todos os níveis. Fez-me repensar as minhas prioridades e valorizar os pequenos momentos e as relações com as pessoas da minha vida. Esta experiência precoce de doença e a presença da possibilidade (ainda que longínqua, de não podermos evitar de pensar nela) de morrer, fez com que aprofundasse na área da psicologia que trabalha com as pessoas doentes. Queria ouvi-las, partilhar a sua dor física e emocional e poder ajudá-las em tudo o que me fosse possível. O meu primeiro trabalho enquanto psicóloga foi na área da saúde mental, e, paralelamente, durante aqueles sete anos a trabalhar com os doentes com problemas graves de psiquiatria, formei-me e especializei-me em psicologia dos cuidados paliativos. �


by Sara De Miguel

C'est curieux car chaque fois qu’une personne me demande ce que je fais, je réponds que je suis psychologue en soins palliatifs, et automatiquement, elle change de sujet. Presque personne ne m'interroge sur mon travail, presque personne ne veut entendre parler de la maladie, et encore moins de la mort, alors que la seule chose certaine dans notre vie, c'est que nous allons mourir. Nous ne savons pas quand ni comment ; mais quand ce moment se produira, nous voulons tous « bien mourir », sans même se demander en quoi consiste « bien mourir ». Heureusement, j'ai l'immense plaisir d‘exercer au sein d'une équipe de médecins et d'infirmiers très professionnelle, mais surtout très humaine, avec qui j’ai partagé l'expérience extraordinaire d'aider de nombreuses personnes à mourir du mieux possible. Et si c'est ainsi, c’est parce que chaque personne malade rencontrée possède une histoire et un présent qui sont le fruit de son unique passé. Ils nous lisent les pages de leur biographie, nous enseignent à voir avec nos yeux et à sentir avec notre cœur ; ils nous font part de leurs peurs et de leurs inquiétudes, laissent exprimer leurs émotions pour que le moment venu ils puissent mourir avec le moins de souffrance possible. Mon plus grand apprentissage au fil des années a été le suivant : si nous écoutions davantage les personnes proches de la mort, nous les aiderions à mourir mieux. Et surtout, si nous écoutions davantage les personnes qui s'approchent de la mort, nous apprendrions à vivre mieux.

by Jessica Catani Sara De Miguel

Se ascoltassimo di più le persone che si avvicinano alla morte, impareremmo a vivere meglio. È curioso come, ogni volta che qualcuno mi chiede cosa faccio ed io rispondo che sono psicologa di cure palliative, automaticamente si cambi discorso. Quasi nessuno mi chiede del mio lavoro, quasi nessuno vuole sentir parlare di malattia, né tantomeno di morte, quando l’unica cosa certa nella nostra vita è che moriremo. Mi chiamo Sara e il mio più grande insegnamento in questi anni è stato che se ascoltassimo di più le persone che si avvicinano alla morte, le aiuteremmo a morire meglio. E, soprattutto, che se ascoltassimo di più le persone che si avvicinano alla morte, impareremmo a vivere meglio.

13 Souls

by Jesus M. Gonzalez Sara De Miguel

It is curious that every time someone asks me what I do for a living, and I answer that I am a palliative care psychologist, they automatically change the subject. Almost no one asks me about my work, almost nobody wants to hear about illness, much less death, when the only thing certain in our life is that we will die. My name is Sara, and my greatest learning these years has been that if we listened more to the people who are nearing death, we would help them to die better. And above all, that if we listen more to the people who are nearing death, we would learn to live better.

The 2 x 4 Model: A Neuroscience-Based Blueprint for the Modern Integrated Addiction and Mental Health Treatment System

by Robert Andrew Chambers

Over a quarter century of studies have shown that addictions, mental illnesses, and their combinations (dual diagnoses) are pervasive in the general population. Meanwhile, emerging neuroscience is revealing that the neurodevelopmental basis of major mental illness and addiction diseases are tightly interconnected and often unified pathologies of the brain. This science calls into question the profound split between the addiction and mental health fields that define our fragmented research, professional training, and treatment delivery systems—a split that leaves most patients out of reach of adequate professional expertise and evidence-based standards of care. The 2 x 4 Model, as described in this translational textbook of Addiction Psychiatry, is the essential blueprint and operational manual for the fully integrated, expertly staffed, Dual Diagnosis clinic— a clinic that is maximally capable and efficient in treating the full spectrum of addictions, mental illness, and their comorbidities, through integration of psychotherapies and medications, by one team under one roof. Replication of 2 x 4 Model Clinics into a national system would allow widespread access to excellent, transparent standards of Addiction Psychiatry as a decisive measure against mass incarceration and the exploding health care crisis of untreated addictions, all while rebuilding brain health as a core public health, social and economic imperative of modern society.
