"'Staging Disorder' considers the contemporary representation of the real in relation to photography, architecture and modern conflict. The book includes selected images from seven photographic series that were made independently of each other - Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin's 'Chicago', Beate Geissler & Oliver Sann's 'personal kill', Claudio Hils' 'Red Land Blue Land', An-My Lae's 29 Palms', Richard Mosse's 'Airside', Sarah Pickering's 'Public Order' and Christopher Stewart's 'Kill House'. The portrayal by these artists of mock domestic rooms, aircraft, houses, streets and whole fake towns designed as military and civilian architectural simulations in preparation for real and imagined future conflicts in different parts of the globe provoke a series of questions concerning the nature of truth as it manifests itself in contemporary photographic practice."--Back cover.

After the original proposals of staging for psychotic disorders developed by McGorry and colleagues, a few systems have been put forward specifically for people with bipolar disorder. There is now consistent evidence that, at least for a significant portion of people with this disease, clinical course and outcome are not as benign as initially described. The evidence thus far points to relevant differences between early and late stages of bipolar disorders in the clinical course of illness, neurobiology and systemic pathology. These differences all suggest that staging is a viable addition to clinical care in bipolar disorder. Neuroprogression and Staging in Bipolar Disorder provides a comprehensive summary of the current state of the evidence regarding the use of staging systems in bipolar disorder. Edited by the leading researchers in the field, the book systematically covers the theoretical basis for staging, comparisons between different proposals, neurobiological underpinnings, the current evidence-base, limitations and future directions, and clinical implications and recommendations for practice. The book provides a solid and in-depth outline and thus to influence research and practice in the field of bipolar disorder.

This book examines in detail the diagnostic approach to manic depressive (bipolar) illness, with special reference to the borderline zones with unipolar depression and schizoaffective disorder. Among other diagnostic issues considered are mixed episodes (often misdiagnosed by psychiatrists), rapid cycling, and the confusion with personality disorders. Within the context of diagnosis and understanding of the dynamics of bipolar disorder, temperament, character, and personality are all extensively discussed. Neurocognitive deficit and disability are covered, as are elements of evolutionary biology and behavior. With regard to treatment, the major focus is on evidence-based therapy, with reference to the results of randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses; in addition, contemporary guidelines and future trends are examined. Careful consideration is also given to the psychosocial treatment approach and issues relating to societal and economic costs and burdens.

Assessment and Staging of Care for Dementia: The IDEAL schedule and its user manual is a unique resource containing a global clinical staging schedule for dementia alongside essential, practical information on how to use it. The International Schedule for the Integrated Assessment and Staging of Care for Dementia (IDEAL) schedule assesses a patient's capacity to function in seven domains. These domains are 'activities of daily living', 'physical health', 'cognitive functioning', 'behavioural and psychological symptoms', 'social support', 'informal care', and 'formal professional care'. Each domain has a set of anchor points to assist with rating the different dimensions appropriately along with critical information on how to calculate the total sum score on the IDEAL schedule. In addition to the IDEAL schedule itself, this resource includes a glossary of key terms and guidance on recommended priorities for interventions for different symptoms and severity patterns. Global examples of how to apply the schedule based on different levels of resources and experience are also presented along with relatable case studies mapped directly to the schedule. Created by the International Dementia Alliance, this innovative tool and user manual is suitable for health care professionals with experience in the diagnosis and treatment of people with dementia around the world, as well as any of those involved in dementia care.

Bipolar disorders affect up to 3% of the world's population and are the 6th leading cause of disability worldwide. The estimated annual costs of bipolar disorder approach $50 billion in the United States, and the associated societal and personal suffering is immeasurable. Bipolar disorder is a lifelong illness that typically begins in mid-adolescence, thereby disrupting healthy developmental processes. It is also a progressive illness, making early intervention even more critical. As the disorder presents differently in youth as it does in adults, considerable controversy exists around the diagnosis in young people. The neurobiological factors leading to the onset of bipolar disorder reflect abnormalities in adolescent brain development. Bipolar disorder is strongly heritable and therefore, these developmental abnormalities likely represent the culmination of processes that precede the expression of symptoms. Current studies of children who are at risk for bipolar disorder are identifying these processes. Again, controversy exists about how to move these neuroscience gains forward to help affected individuals and, particularly to manage children at risk to delay or prevent the onset or progression of bipolar disorder. With these considerations in mind, Bipolar Disorder in Youth provides a timely, focused review of the diagnosis, treatment, and neurobiology of bipolar disorder in youth. It addresses current controversies and resolves those in which evidence is available. The book is organized into three sections based on these topics to provide comprehensive discussions to aid clinicians managing these individuals in their practices, as well as scientists trying to advance the field. The three editors are widely recognized experts in bipolar disorder, and the authors of each chapter represent international experts in the respective topics. Consequently, this book is the most comprehensive volume available discussing this important population and is a 'must' for the libraries of clinicians and scientists working with bipolar children and adolescents.

Radiation Medicine Rounds is a trinary hard cover periodical designed to provide an up-to- date review of a dedicated radiation medicine topic of interest to clinicians and scientists who are involved in the care of patients receiving radiotherapy. It is intended to serve as both a reference and instructional tool for students, housestaff, fellows, practicing clinicians, medical physicists, cancer biologists, radiobiologists, and interdisciplinary colleagues throughout the oncology spectrum. This issue of Radiation Medicine Rounds discusses the more salient topics surrounding the role of radiation therapy for hematologic malignancies. There are literally dozens of distinct lymphoma subtypes, each with its own unique molecular and clinical features. Although systemic cytotoxic and targeted therapies have improved dramatically, radiation therapy remains an important modality for optimal clinical outcomes. With contributions from nationally recognized experts, Hematologic Malignancies offers an overview of the full spectrum of therapy for hematologic malignancies ranging from lymphoma and leukemia to plasma cell dyscrasias. Recent advances in radiotherapy for hematologic malignancies allow for maintenance of excellent local control with improvements in toxicity achieved through reductions in field sizes, in dose delivered, and increasingly conformal delivery techniques. Hematologic Malignancies provides the practitioner with a current overview of best practices, recent research, and future directions in the management of these complex cancers.
