If you wish the true facts about the chiropractic profession, this is your book. Dr. Hawk and her co-authors review the history of the profession and provide insights into it's development as the second-largest basic portal of entry profession in the US. A lot of people have misconceptions about chiropractors, which this well crafted text will support dispel, including the facts about education, philosophical variations among providers, and the truth about the safety of chiropractic, including an enlightening review of the definitive scientific evidence regarding cervical manipulation.Each chapter is replete with current citations to the scientific literature. Readers will not only understand chiropractic history, philosophy and educational requirements, but individual chapters outline the research supporting chiropractic care for common conditions such as neck pain, low back pain and headaches, but also for extremity conditions and non-musculoskeletal conditions, as well as unique is is the authoritative volume of evidence regarding the chiropractic profession and deserves to be on all health care providers' bookshelf. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in understanding the profession.
Not sure what is unique about this book in family therapy only the latest few chapters focus on family therapy while 90% of the book is a review of statistics. Amazing book but nothing was a surprise.
The book is a fast read, in a nutshell type of book. I like that it stresses these students need accommodations for the long term. My disappointment in the book is it states evidence based in the title and does not source in the text what study can be drawn from to help the technique. It does give a reference page in the back but it is not cross referenced in the text. Also, I could not search a study to help the time theory. I see they don't experience time the same as typical children through experience and I was excited to see this in the text thinking, again by the title, that I would have evidence to help the theory but no. None of the studies referenced appeared to discover that aspect. I would have given it a 3 star for the evidence based but it was more than OK for simple to use content.
As a sufferer of ADHD myself, a parent of ADHD kids and a teacher and advocate of ADHD students, I cannot praise Dr. Barkely's work enough. There is a LOT of rubbish printed out there about this disorder, often created to look factual when it isn't. If you wish true info and tactics that really work to help kids with ADHD, then Dr. Barkley's work should be the first and latest put you look.
The book did have some amazing hints but I was a small disappointed at how little the book was for the price.I have loved all of the Russell Barkley books and his videos so my hopes were high for this book. I bought it for me to read since my kindergartener has recently diagnosed with ADHD and was having problem in school. A lot of of the tactics in the book were already in put in the school. I ended up giving my copy to our school so they could use it.
Very amazing resource for Parents to address/educate the educators of your child's school. His books are all great. My only concern with this book is that it doesn't have a lot of tactics for high schoolers. This book is geared more towards elementary and middle school age children.
Rarely does a newly published book have the potential to significantly change the field of unique education. The Handbook of evidence-based practices for emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) is clearly one of these rare books. The book begins with a prologue and ends with a epilogue by James M. Kauffman who writes that “science is a cruel mistress” and then masterfully reviews and exposes the sacred cows and pseudoscience approaches that have been inappropriately used with students with EBD. In the following chapters, Walker and Gresham show contributions from leading international scholars to provide the best evidence-based practices for students with EBD. Necessary chapters cover problems such as, racial and ethnic disproportionality in unique education, criteria and standards to identify evidence based practice, bullying and aggression, litigation in delivering services to students with EBD, much required school-based wraparound services, systematic screening for early intervention, and early intervention for preventing emerging antisocial behavior patterns. This Handbook is a major contribution to the field and critically necessary tutorial for EBD ll JensonProfessor of School PsychologyUniversity of Utah
"I have a unique shelf in my office where I place the 'latest and greatest.' That’s where I place Hill and Frank’s fresh book on emotional and behavioral disorders. Why?....because they value evidence-based practices, applications in school, defendable foundational knowledge, systematic assessment and evaluation, and rigorous research methods. They asked the best researchers and practitioners who share related values to contribute and create this edited book one of the more necessary on my shelf of favorites. For the 'latest and greatest,' obtain this book." George Sugai, University of Connecticut
The Handbook offers a comprehensive compilation of info to ensure high quality service delivery for students who show emotional and behavioral challenges. The detailed yet accessible content allows the book to serve as a welcome addition to both current practitioners and systems as well as within university pre-service training programs. In addition, it supports directions for increased cross-systems efforts given the diversity of perspectives and content from experts across service delivery fields working to address the challenges of identification and treatment of kids and adolescents who experience emotional and behavioral ndra M.

An internationally recognized group of outstanding authors have crafted a remarkably useful tutorial to understanding and applying evidence-based practices for kids and adolescents with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD). Edited by two experts in unique education and school psychology, Walker and Gresham have designed this book around six thematic sections: (1) Foundations, (2) Screening and Identification, (3) Interventions for Specific Disorders and Settings, (4) Generic Intervention Approaches, (5) Early Intervention, and (6) Research Methods. Most sections includes six or seven chapters that cover such subjects as bullying, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, anxiety disorders, social skills training and assessment, functional behavior assessment, and a lot of more. All the authors are to be commended because it is a daunting task to place together content based totally on evidence-based practices as Kauffman indicated in his epilogue because it requires rejecting much “evidence” as unscientific. Given the dismal long-term outcomes for kids and adolescents with EBD, this book provides a tutorial for practitioners implementing the most robust interventions to change the trajectory of these youngsters who show the most challenging hn W.

The Handbook of Evidence-Based Practices for Emotional and Behavioral Disorders includes the most current, scientifically based info on practices to help the learning and success of kids and youth with behavior disorders. The chapter authors are the best and the brightest of scholars that the field has to offer, and the editors have been leaders in the field for decades. This leadership and collective wisdom shows through in the series of chapters that cover all aspects of educational applications of evidence-based practices for kids and youth with behavior disorders. I expect that this will be the key reference text on this subject for years to m Odom, Director, Frank Porter Graham Kid Development Institute, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
This is a very dry read with perfect concise content that is EBM-centric. I am becoming a better ER doctor with clearer validation for my clinical decisions as I read this - and it helps me to sleep on my commute. A small humor or levity would've been appreciated (or maybe justan attempt to create it an easier, faster read) - in that respect the amazing ol' Blue Book really delivered - but this is more ER-appropriate and is a lot like the Blue Book in terms of content, goals and info delivery and organization so I'll recommend it in lieu for its perfect review of current concepts. It has changed my opinion on several management tactics over the latest month so it's clearly doing its job of educating me.
This book is an invaluable resource for the busy emergency physician. Concise and simple to follow text lays out evidence based interventions and practice for a dozens of subjects relevant to critically ill patients in the emergency setting. The expert info laid out here will not only create you feel more confident in the approach and treatment of the initial resuscitation of critical patients but also in the transition to the intensive care. As an emergency physician with over 18 years of clinical practice I cannot emphasize how highly I recommend this book as a must have, not only for the benefit of the ED physician but for your patients as well.
A very high yield critical care reference that is a pleasure to read. Each chapter is written by leaders in the field, in a concise format, directed towards ED physicians. If you are looking for a resource that provides a solid review of current literature and gives you immediate pearls that can improve your clinical practice, this is it.
Finally, an EBM book written by Emergency Medicine and Critical Care physicians that either trained in Critical Care, did a fellowship in critical care, or most importantly, are working in the Emergency Department. Along with DeGowen & DeGowen, this is a must on every practicing Emergency Medicine physician's bookshelf. As we face more and more hospital overcrowding, we search ourselves taking care of the sickest patients in the hospital. After reading this book, you will feel more comfortable in knowing how to manage these patients.
This is the excellent book for the Emergency Physician or Resident looking to learn more about Critical Care Medicine. The chapters are concise and excellent for a busy physician who works with critically ill patients in the Emergency Department. Each chapter provides enough, yet not too much detail on high yield topics. Definitely evidence-based and honest about the strength of the evidence. The end of chapter summaries are also quite good.
This book set me back $77.88, and perhaps because of that hefty price, I came to it with high expectations. Its organization, I must say, is excellent; it includes 4o chapters, the first chapter an introduction and each chapter thereafter focusing on evidence-based interventions for a specific issue -- e.g., one chapter with interventions for oppositional defiant disorder, another with interventions for major depressive disorder, and so ere is definitely amazing items in these pages, but some beautiful huge weaknesses, as well. Take, for instance, the chapter on social skills deficits. It's is written by Frank Gresham, the co-author of the Social Skills Improvement System. Gresham has some amazing items to say, but he only discusses three interventions, all which he himself created. Nothing versus these interventions, but there are other evidence-based interventions for youth with social skills deficits, interventions which might work better for specific clients, but you'll have to find elsewhere to learn about them.I've only read a few chapters so far but have come across some other problems. For instance, the chapter on interventions for stress refers to the Learning to BREATHE mindfulness program as a promising tactic and touts one study showing that the program "resulted in lower levels of perceived stress and psychosomatic complaints as well as increased emotional regulation among 216 high school students." Sound great, but if you go online and actually read the study, you'll search that it didn't have an active control group and wasn't even a randomized controlled trial. In other words, there doesn't seem to be evidence that this program does what it claims to do, but you'd only know that if you did your own research.
The info received through the application is very helpful. It keeps one updated about different development in the medical field and bursts a lot of myths. Amazing application if one is interested to hold track of developments in this field.
Perfect application for upto date news on medical industry. Ayurveda and homeopathy info also given which is an added advantage for users. Medicine find is there which is a very amazing option to know abt the tablets that we are consuming.
