Handbook of Individual Therapy by Edited by Windy Dryden (£20.50)Publisher: Sage — 1998Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 080397843X]Condition: Very Good. Light crease to the bottom corner of the upper wrapper. Slight soiling at the leading edge of the text block. Text complete, clean and tight. A pleasant copy.Description: From the cover: “This major new edition of the highly successful Individual Therapy: A Handbook presents a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the 12 key approaches to individual therapy.

A distinguished team assembled from among Britain’s leading counsellors and psychotherapists — all experienced exponents of the particular form of therapy they discuss — introduce the principles and methods of each approach concisely and accessibly. Following a clearly defined structure, chapters place each school of thought in its historical context, outline its main theoretical assumptions and set out its mode of practice, while case examples illustrate the approach in action. The contributors clarify the ways in which practitioners can identify those clients who will most benefit from each form of therapy and indicate the general strengths and limitations of each therapeutic approach.

Further chapters place counselling and psychotherapy in its social context, relate research to actual therapeutic practice and explore the training and supervision of individual therapists.

The handbook is designed for trainee and practising counsellors: novice therapists interested in obtaining an overall picture of the practice of individual therapy as well as experienced therapists interested in learning about alternative approaches to individual therapy. It will also be a valuable resource for others working in the helping professions, and for students of applied psychology.”

What makes a treatment a “best choice”? The designation draws on a combination of factors, including effectiveness, safety, and cost.

Best Choices from The People’s Pharmacy is the first book to present such a wide range of treatment options and evaluate them side by side. Inside this exclusive expanded edition you’ll find:

  • Remedies for dozens of health concerns, from acne to weight loss.
  • Thumbnails that offer at-a-glance descriptions of the best choices- complete with vital information on possible side effects and approximate cost.
  • Ratings that allow you to compare the treatment options for each condition with ease.
  • The People’s Pharmacy Favourite Picks — a selection of self-care strategies tested and recommended by People’s Pharmacy fans.
  • A survival guide of must-have remedies collected from top health experts who answered the question, “What three things would you take to a desert island?”
Best Choices from the People’s Pharmacy is the latest work from Joe and Terry Graedon, whose incisive investigation and reporting of all aspects of health care has earned them a worldwide audience. The Graedons have culled their best choices through careful review of current scientific research as well as testimonials from their legion of People’s Pharmacy readers and listeners. Armed with this information, you can make the best choice for you.”

Hospital of the Nation: Story of Spa Medicine and the Mineral Hospital At Bath by Roger Rolls (£12.50)Publisher: Bath: Bird Publications — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Description: Illustrated by way of: Appendices [2]; Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs; Colour Plates;

From the cover: “Of all English spas, Bath has enjoyed the greatest reputation as a medical centre for treating rheumatic diseases with its naturally hot mineral water having a healing tradition originating in the mist of antiquity with the legendary story of Bladud, the prince who cured himself of leprosy by bathing in the hot springs.

For centuries, the inexhaustible flow of the Bath waters turned the city into a haven for invalids and a magnet for doctors. The pursuit of health became Bath’s most important industry. In 1738, Britain’s first national specialist hospital was founded in the city, drawing patients from the far-flung corners of the kingdom with illnesses which would benefit from spa treatment. Known best as the Mineral Water Hospital, it is still thriving as the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases and is nowadays an internationally famous institution for the research and treatment of these crippling disorders.

Published to coincide with the hospital’s 250th anniversary, this lavishly illustrated book has something to interest everyone -from the follies and foibles of eccentric governors and doctors to indecent practices and curious cures. On a more serious level, the author discusses possible reasons for the success of mineral water treatment and gives an insight into life in an eighteenth century hospital.”

A-Z OF HERBS:

The second section of the book is a botanical A-Z encyclopaedia of herbs, detailing over 150 common and lesser-known varieties of plant, and providing growing tips as well as essential information on their medicinal, culinary and scented properties.

Natural Remedies for Allergies by Paul Morgan (£10.50)Publisher: Parragon — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0752525379]Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled at the edges.Description: From the cover: “Allergies have become something of an obsession in the 1990s: press reports talk of ‘an allergy to life’; and scientists tell that the extraordinary increase in allergy cases over the last century can be put down to environmental pollution as a result of the increasing industrialization of society. This book shows allergy sufferers that there are other ways to reduce the risk of provoking an allergic response and of treating one if it occurs. First, it cuts through the jargon, using clear no-nonsense language to explain what allergies are and what causes them, before discussing the pros and cons of conventional medical treatment. Then it discusses the various types of allergy, from food allergies to allergic skin conditions, with cross-references to the various types of natural treatment that follow. Next the book shows how natural remedies — from herbal medicines, elimination diets and homeopathy to stress-management techniques — can help by both alleviating the symptoms of an allergic response and prevent one from occurring.”Notes: Size: 9¾" x 7".
