From childhood to millennials and beyond, it is essential we take a life-course approach to occupation and work when in pain. Written by experts in the field, Work and pain: A lifespan development approach provides an authoritative summary and analysis of the relationship between all forms of occupation and pain. Divided into three sections, 'Foundations', provides a critical account of the nature of work and of pain. The next section, 'Investigations', analyses the bi-directional relationships between children living with chronic pain and parents; between being a child in pain and schooling; what it is to be a millennial in pain; the implications of pain which is determined to be occupational in origin; and enabling a life lived well with pain as one ages. The final section, 'Interventions', critically reviews what individuals can change, what workplaces can do, and how governments can innovate to try to maximise workability for people living with pain in the context of current working practices. Work and pain: A lifespan development approach investigates and guides the reader on understanding how and why people seek to be occupied, and how we can maximise their social and personal involvement when living with ongoing pain, suggesting ways forward in research, practice, and policy.

Grief and Loss Across the Lifespan Book Review:

"[Grief and Loss Across the Lifespan] represents a significant advance because it looks at the issues from a bio-psychosocial perspective. To a social worker who has worked mainly in a medical and nursing environment, this is a great step forward." --Bereavement Care "[Offers] valued sensitivities, knowledge, and insights, and most importantly, age-appropriate interventions for a range of significant losses....Counselors will want to keep this indispensable work close at hand." -Kenneth J.

Applegate, PhD Professor Emeritus Graduate School of Social Work & Social Research Bryn Mawr College "[A] thorough, thoughtful, sensitive, and up-to-date contribution that may be the best book available today for teaching bereavement, grief, and mourningÖ.[H]ighly recommended for experienced grief professionals as well as for students." -Jeffrey Kauffman, MA, MS, LCSW, BD, CT, CAS, BCETS Psychotherapist in private practice, Philadelphia, PA "Walter and McCoyd have written a well-organized and comprehensive examination of grief and bereavement that will be useful to the seasoned professional as well as the student new to grief and loss. The historical analysis of grief theory from classic to postmodern is interesting reading and essential for a full understanding of grief and loss in modern society. " --Paige E. Payne, MS, MSW, LSW Support Services Manager PinnacleHealth Home Care and Hospice Harrisburg, PA Grief and Loss Across the Lifespan is unique in its treatment of grieving patterns and intervention strategies for different age groups. With this book, students and practitioners will learn how grief is influenced by biological responses to stress, psychological responses to loss, as well as social norms and support networks. The authors utilize a developmental framework, as each level of development from infancy through old age is addressed in four ways: Reviews normal developmental issues, abilities, and challenges for the age in question Analyzes how individuals of each age cope with serious loss of a significant other, and how they may experience life-threatening illness themselves Examines how significant others react to and mourn the death of someone in that age range Identifies the normative losses a person is likely to experience, and addresses protective and risky ways of coping with those losses The authors review important grief theories, such as postmodern and Dual Process Theory, and discuss current topics in grief, including continuing bonds, meaning making, ambiguous loss, and disenfranchised loss. With the help of this book, practitioners and students of grief counseling can learn to help patients of all ages understand that loss is at the heart of life and growth.

Vulnerability to Psychopathology Book Review:

Vulnerability has become the focal point of much theory and research in the study of psychopathology. Until now, however, work on child and adult disorders has largely been conducted separately, with little cross-communication of knowledge on risk factors across the lifespan. This important work brings together leading clinical researchers to lay the foundations for an integrative lifespan perspective on biological, psychological, and social-contextual processes of vulnerability. Demonstrated are ways that the vulnerability construct can lead to genuine progress in understanding not only the genesis of psychological symptoms, but also their prevention and treatment. For each of the major disorders, a chapter on the condition as it appears in childhood and adolescence is followed by a chapter on adulthood. Contributors review theories of vulnerability and resilience, current findings, and clinical implications of the research. A third chapter on each disorder, written jointly by the authors of the previous two, highlights commonalities and differences in child and adult psychopathology and identifies key questions that remain unanswered.

Mental Health Across the Lifespan Book Review:

Mental wellbeing is an integral part of being, and feeling, healthy, and it is estimated that one in four people will suffer from some form of mental illness during their lifetime. In spite of this, it is often overlooked in mainstream healthcare. The overall aim of this book is to provide knowledge and understanding of how mental health affects human beings from conception through to end-of-life, and the challenges that society as a whole has to address in the treatment of mental health. Beginning with an exploration of historical, social and cultural contexts, the book then goes on to discuss mental health care, and mental health promotion, during pregnancy and early parenthood, childhood, adolescence and young adulthood, adulthood for both men and women, and in older people. Containing reflective exercises, the chapters are designed to provide an easily-accessible and engagingly-written introduction to mental health. Containing chapters that can be read and reviewed in isolation, or used as an entire text, Mental Health Across the Lifespan: A Handbook provides a solid introduction to mental health for students. The book will also act as a useful reference for doctors, nurses, midwives, health visitors, allied health professionals, and health and social care support workers who have no specialist mental health training but often work in partnership with, and care for, people suffering from mental health issues.

Domestic Abuse Across the Lifespan Book Review:

Domestic abuse has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. Are you prepared to work with the people whose lives it has changed? Domestic Abuse Across the Lifespan: The Role of Occupational Therapy reframes the problem of domestic violence, taking it out of the home and into the practice of occupational therapy. It identifies the effects of all types of domestic abuse (spousal, child, elder, etc.) as well as frameworks to address dysfunction that has occurred secondary to the abuse. This book shows that the effects of domestic abuse are indeed in the realm of occupational therapy practice, and that just as occupational therapists would consider other environmental concerns (i.e. kitchen and bathroom safety), they must also consider abuse and its effects. Domestic Abuse Across the Lifespan: The Role of Occupational Therapy provides you with: definitions and illustrative examples of each type of domestic violence risk factors for becoming a victim or an abuser an examination of the occupational therapist's role with victims of abuse reasons why women may decide to refuse intervention a discussion of the connection between victim advocacy and occupational therapy a case study detailing the clinical findings and treatment of a six-month-old infant with shaken baby syndrome who received in-patient occupational therapy a case study of a child witness of domestic abuse and the use of the Occupational Therapy Psychosocial Assessment of Learning (OT PAL) in measuring the psychosocial aspects of his performance in a nontraditional classroom setting a checklist for occupational therapists who encounter elder abuse and a case study that illustrates its use . . . and much more! The number of people whose lives are scarred by domestic abuse is vast and growing every day. Occupational therapists working in many different settings will encounter children, adults, elders, and individuals with disabilities who have experienced intimate violence and abuse. Domestic Abuse Across the Lifespan: The Role of Occupational Therapy is the tool to help you help them.
