Stepping Into Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy Book Description:

This volume will be of enormous interest and value to the growing number of people qualified both in the established and the new training societies for analysts and therapists, or studying to enter them. Within it theory and practice are closely interwoven, demonstrating how theories and models emerge, both from the study of earlier pioneering publications and from day to day experience, and are tested time and time again in the process of a group of practitioners accepting them as viable. An impressive and creative blend of the characteristics which this profession demands of its practitioners is in evidence here, combining originality with passion for their subject and the flexibility required to develop their own pattern of thought.'In the practice of modern analytical psychology it has become of central importance to reorganise, analyse and interpret projections and introjections of many sorts, the patient's transference, the analyst's counter-transference, and the dialectical interaction between the two, which is descriptively termed transference/counter-transference. Transference and counter-transference evoke each other; the patient's gradual acceptance of the analysis of those processes and his growing consciousness of the way they influence his relationships are facilitated by the analyst who can successfully blend his knowledge of archetypal forces, images and symbols with his experience of developmental factors.'- Judith Hubback, from the Introduction.

Body Image Care for Cancer Patients Book Description:

This book is the first and only academic textbook of principles and practices of body image care for cancer patients, designed to target a multidisciplinary audience of healthcare care professionals engaged in the science and/or practice of psychosocial oncology internationally. Content is primarily geared toward mental health professionals or those involved in supportive care of cancer patients, but is broadly applicable to all members of the oncologic healthcare team. Best practices and models of body image care are reviewed and presented in such a manner as to be directly relevant to oncologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, social workers, rehabilitation specialists, speech and language pathologists, and other allied healthcare professionals. Body Image Care for Cancer Patients provides a 7omprehensive overview of available literature on body image outcomes with cancer populations, and integrates scientific findings from the general body image literature that can be applied to the oncology setting. Readers are provided with a comprehensive theoretical foundation along with practical recommendations for assessment tools and intervention approaches that can be utilized by a range of healthcare professionals. Case examples are incorporated throughout the textbook considering different aspects of disease and treatment, and are written from the perspective of different professional disciplines. This book will be relevant for emerging as well as established healthcare professionals internationally, and can be used in training and other educational settings. This book is unique as there is no current academic text focusing on advancing the science and practice of body image care for cancer patients. Other reference texts have broadly focused on reviewing body image theory and findings in the general population or across a broad spectrum of medical illness. The time has come for a more focused textbook specific to body image and cancer that can significantly benefit the field of oncology.
