When faced with a patient whose psychological symptoms may stem from an organic, or medical, condition rather than psychology, how does the practitioner determine exactly which is the true case? To facilitate this process and give psychologists, social workers, and nurses a useable guide to assessment, Robert Taylor created Psychological Masquerade and has updated it to be the most complete handbook you will ever need in the field. New chapters on violent behavior, amnesia and dementia, sex obsession, and Munchausen-by-Proxy fill out the guide and numerous case studies help clarify diagnostic criteria and provide a welcome hands-on approach to caring for clients in this delicate balance. As a further enhancement of the text as assessment tool, self-tests for hypothetical cases are included as are specific clinical tests that aid in clue gathering. This is the perfect clinical guide for any practitioner who is likely to come into contact with psychological masquerade among their clients and will be a welcome addition to the practitioner's toolbox.

Counsellors and psychotherapists often encounter difficult situations with clients for which they feel ill prepared. At any stage in the process a client may experience a crisis or set back in their progress or simply be unable to move beyond a certain point. Working through Setbacks in Psychotherapy is therefore intended to help therapists respond to such events which form major obstacles to the successful development and maintenance of the therapeutic relationship. The authors present a framework for understanding the problems that arise and offers effective guidance for working through difficult situations which test the skills of even the most experienced practitioners. Until now little has been written about the

Terry Castle's recent study of masquerade follows Bakhtin's analysis of the carnivalesque to conclude that, for women, masquerade offered exciting possibilities for social and sexual freedom. Castle's interpretation conforms to the fears expressed by male writers during the period&—Addison, Steele, and Fielding all insisted that masquerade allowed women to usurp the privileges of men. Female authors, however, often mistrusted these claims, perceiving that masquerade's apparent freedoms were frequently nothing more than sophisticated forms of oppression. Catherine Craft-Fairchild's work provides a useful corrective to Castle's treatment of masquerade. She argues that, in fictions by Aphra Behn, Mary Davys, Eliza Haywood, Elizabeth Inchbald, and Frances Burney, masquerade is double-sided. It is represented in some cases as a disempowering capitulation to patriarchal strictures that posit female subordination. Often within the same text, however, masquerade is also depicted as an empowering defiance of the dominant norms for female behavior. Heroines who attempt to separate themselves from the image of womanhood they consciously construct escape victimization. In both cases, masquerade is the condition of femininity: gender in the woman's novel is constructed rather than essential. Craft-Fairchild examines the guises in which womanhood appears, analyzing the ways in which women writers both construct and deconstruct eighteenth-century cultural conceptions of femininity. She offers a careful and engaging textual analysis of both canonical and noncanonical eighteenth-century texts, thereby setting lesser-read fictions into a critical dialogue with more widely known novels. Detailed readings are informed throughout by the ideas of current feminist theorists, including Luce Irigaray, Julia Kristeva, Mary Ann Doane, and Kaja Silverman. Instead of assuming that fictions about women were based on biological fact, Craft-Fairchild stresses the opposite: the domestic novel itself constructs the domestic woman.

In Pigeonholing Women's Misery, Hannah Lerman takes aim at the formal classification systems that have shaped the diagnosis of women in twentieth-century America. She describes the psychodiagnosis of women and shows us how this phenomenon has evolved, changed, and in some instances, remained static. Lerman analyzes the developmental trajectory of the DSM over time, up to the DSM-IV, showing us how a historical perspective is crucial to understanding the contemporary diagnosis of women. Unless we as therapists examine how we approach the assessment of women's mental health problems, we may continue to do harm when our intentions are to help women heal. With a feminist lens, Lerman points to the gap between diagnostic criteria cited in the professional literature and the real-life consequences resulting from particular diagnoses - or misdiagnoses. Lerman's book is a wake-up call to therapists who want to shed outdated professional cloaks and sharpen their assessment tools in ways that will suit the rapidly changing contexts of their clients. The labeling systems we have come to rely on, she convincingly argues, need to be redesigned to accommodate the complexities of gender, culture, and personal context.

Psychoanalytic psychotherapy is a new development in the treatment of people with learning disabilities and mental health problems, which traditionally has utilised behavioural management and limited counselling. The papers collected here have evolved from the work of the pioneering Learning Disabilities Service at the Tavistock Clinic, London, which is made up from specialised professionals from the fields of psychology, psychiatry, child and adolescent psychotherapy, adult psychotherapy and social work. The service mainly offers individual psychotherapy but also provides group work, parent work, family therapy and consultative work with professionals where necessary.This volume demonstrates the vast range of work undertaken by members of the service, covering treatment for children, adolescents and adults from the fields detailed above. It also contains an in-depth look at aspects of life in residential settings and at audit and research. Several central concepts reoccur: the theory of early trauma; the theory of "secondary handicap", a term coined by Valerie Sinason to describe the particular use a person makes of their handicap; and the sheer painfulness of having a learning disability to all concerned and the magnitude of defensive manoeuvres used by people to evade this reality.A major and worthwhile aim of the editors is to encourage an interest in training in psychotherapy with this patient group, an overlooked but rewarding field. This book will appeal to many for a variety of reasons. It is pertinent for those from any field who are already engaged in work with people with learning difficulties and will also be of interest not only to general practitioners and students of psychotherapy but also to non-specialists who are connected with the issues raised, such as carers, keyworkers, family members and friends.In this book, psychoanalytic psychotherapy with children, adolescents and adults with learning disabilities is described in detail, with discussion about some of the technical issues which can arise in clinical work with this patient group. The book aims to be accessible to a wide range of readers, and includes chapters on group therapy in an educational setting, on research and on aspects of institutional care. It will be pertinent and useful to all practitioners and trainees in the fields of learning disabilities, child and adolescent mental health, including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and psychotherapists.Contributors:Annie Baikie; Marta Cioeta; Louise Emanuel; Lydia Hartland-Rowe; Sally Hodges; Maria Kakogianni; Pauline Lee; Victoria Mattison; Lynda Miller; Sadegh Nashat; Nancy Pistrang; Elisa Reyes-Simpson; Nancy Sheppard; David Simpson; and Judith Usiskin.

Disciplinary psychology has failed to achieve a coherent conception of human agency. Instead, it oscillates between two differing conceptions of agency that are equally untenable: a scientistic, reductive approach to choice and action, and an instrumental approach that celebrates a romantic notion of free will. This book examines theoretical, philosophical psychology and argues for a historically and socioculturally situated human capacity for choosing and acting in ways not entirely determined by culture and/or biology. The authors present a detailed developmental theory of how agentic capability emerges from the pre-reflective activity of humans in a real physical and social world.

Public masquerades were a popular and controversial form of urban entertainment in England for most of the eighteenth century. They were held regularly in London and attended by hundreds, sometimes thousands, of people from all ranks of society who delighted in disguising themselves in fanciful costumes and masks and moving through crowds of strangers. The authors shows how the masquerade played a subversive role in the eighteenth-century imagination, and that it was persistently associated with the crossing of class and sexual boundaries, sexual freedom, the overthrow of decorum, and urban corruption. Authorities clearly saw it as a profound challenge to social order and persistently sought to suppress it. The book is in two parts. In the first, the author recreates the historical phenomenon of the English masquerade: the makeup of the crowds, the symbolic language of costume, and the various codes of verbal exchange, gesture, and sexual behavior. The second part analyzes contemporary literary representations of the masquerade, using novels by Richardson, Fielding, Burney, and Inchbald to show how the masquerade in fiction reflected the disruptive power it had in contemporary life. It also served as an indispensable plot-catalyst, generating the complications out of which the essential drama of the fiction emerged. An epilogue discusses the use of the masquerade as a literary device after the eighteenth century. The book contains some 40 illustrations.

In Caring for People with Challenging Behaviors, caregiving staff can find effective ways to prevent, reduce, or eliminate disruptive behaviors exhibited by residents in long-term care settings. Nearly 80% of LTC residents have some degree of moderate to severe behavior problems, stemming from mental illness, dementia, difficult personalities, longstanding behavior patterns, or personal distress. This new book provides practical, evidence-based coping and intervention strategies for use in care planning and day-to-day care. Through vignettes of readily recognizable resident types, staff will learn to understand what triggers and reinforces residents' challenging behavior. Solutions come from identifying the interpersonal ABCs of behavior the antecedents, the behaviors, and the consequences and using communication techniques and other effective psychological approaches to encourage positive behavior.
