The field of infectious disease epidemiology has been front-and-center for the past few years. It has its own unique culture and set of tools and rules. This book offers a whole new vocabulary, from how to consider transmission—with the idea of a disease reproductive rate—to how disease is dispersed or clustered, and how to design a study. It presents the key concepts and principles underlying infectious disease epidemiology in an organized manner, and describes important activities such as disease surveillance and outbreak investigation. The book is valuable to those beginning their study of infectious disease epidemiology, as well as those working to train the next generation of prevention and control experts. It provides a unique introduction and perspective to the field of infectious disease epidemiology, utilizing a combination of intuitive case studies, popular media examples, and didactic exercises. The chapters introduce learners to major conceptual approaches in the field, as well as key factors that enable us to mitigate disease spread. Each chapter is structured to include key terms, a helpful narrative, “Heads Up” sections that help to allay conceptual confusion, highlights on a key figure in history, and a section with lessons learned from the classroom and questions to foster further investigation. The book is structured into four parts that walk learners through the world of infectious disease epidemiology, first covering disease emergence and basics, moving on to modes of transmission and types of diseases, then proceeding to infectious diseases in context, and finally disease control, eradication, and emergence. The authors hope that both the integrated approach and content of the book provide an exciting entrée into a field that is rich in its complexity, dynamicism, and multidisciplinary leanings.

EMDR and Attachment-Focused Trauma Therapy for Adults:Reclaiming Authentic Self and Healthy Attachments
At the heart of this innovative text is the strengths-based Attachment-Focused Trauma Therapy for Adults (AFTT-A) model that facilitates healthier functioning and attachment patterns for adult clients. This model uses a multimodal, step-by-step approach to restructuring the internal personality system to reclaim the authentic “Self” by providing new attachment experiences for “Child” parts of Self and negotiating new adult-life roles. AFTT-A orients all inner personality components to the present moment in which unmet childhood needs for nurturing and protection can be met within clients themselves. The book delivers a sequence of scripted protocols that access and activate the client’s own strengths, creating an internal system of resources and using bilateral stimulation to deepen positive affective shifts.
Throughout the book in Pause and Reflect sections, the authors encourage therapists to think about their own attachment patterns that emerge in therapy sessions and implement activities to enhance personal self-awareness and improve attunement to clients. Short vignettes and e cerpts from client sessions illustrate the model’s application, and end-of-chapter Points to Remember and Troubleshooting tips reinforce key concepts and underscore common therapy challenges and their solutions. The AFTT-A model is useful not only for EMDR therapists but can also be easily integrated with non-EMDR models of trauma therapy.
At no time in recent memory has the practice of public health leadership been more challenging. This book, and its accompanying set of diverse and accessible learning experiences (interviews with notable leaders, case studies, self-assessments, reflection exercises, and the like), provides a solid foundation for the practice of leadership in organizations focusing on such leadership topics as strategic leadership, systems thinking, team leadership, change leadership, and the development of others. Further, the book exposes readers to the challenges, actions, and lessons learned from the
COVID-19 pandemic and other public health and healthcare crises—from after-action reviews to interviews and insights from those on the front lines—culminating in the development of a leadership framework to inform leadership practice. The intended audience for this textbook includes candidates for MHA, DrPH, and MPH degrees, as well as leaders in healthcare, health administration, and public health seeking to further develop their leadership practice. Although key leadership theories will be explored and integrated, the primary focus of this book is on the practice of leadership. The key differentiating feature of the book is that it gives voice to those who practice leadership and have the credibility to discuss the popular as well as the academic literature on a topic—building on a solid foundation of theory, skills, behaviors, and lessons about the challenges leaders face and the contexts in which they must succeed. The book also provides a wide and rich array of learning experiences that incorporate lessons and insights from public health and healthcare leaders. It is organized into four parts. Part I details leadership basics. Part II focuses on key leadership theories and their application. Part III discusses the context and challenges of leadership practice. The final part focuses more specifically on the practice of leadership.
This book primarily is founded upon the credence gleaned from Dr. Vannatta’s published dissertation that demonstrated through a rigorous systematic content analysis of Group Counseling course syllabi used to prepare students at the graduate level to conduct group counseling programs and interventions, while learning group leadership skills, and understanding group dynamics and so forth, minimally included evidence of multiculturalism being incorporated in the courses. It provides content, experiential activities, strong case applications in group leadership across every chapter. The book also provides a detailed case illustration that includes a solid foundation of the goals, purpose, membership, and other group dynamics. It uses different examples to bring to life the learning objectives of the chapter. The cases attempt to provide a broad spectrum of group leaders, coleaders, and group members. The use of multiple cases affords the reader some consistency of engaging in the material while reflecting on applying specific aspects of group leadership. Additionally, the book has an entire chapter that includes a variety of creative and thoughtful case illustrations to highlight special topics centered on a myriad of multicultural considerations. Finally, it pays particular attention to providing information on leading groups, like most group counseling texts on the market; however, it expands the market by offering counselor educators, doctoral students and early career professionals strategies on providing supervision to masters’ level practitioners.
Treating Depression With
EMDRTherapy: Techniques and Interventions introduces EMDRDeprEnd, a pathogenic memory-based EMDRtherapy approach. DeprEnd has been demonstrated in a number of studies and meta-analyses to be at least as effective as—and often more effective than—other guideline-based therapies in treating depression, including cognitive behavioral therapy. EMDRDeprEnd is particularly helpful with chronic and recurrent depression that does not respond well to other treatments. Written by the international research team who developed this quick-acting and efficient therapy, this book provides clinicians with the evidence-based tools they need to integrate EMDRDeprEnd into their practices. Treating Depression With EMDRTherapy explains a step-by-step approach to processing the pathogenic memory structures that are the basis of most depressive disorders and ways to address both Depressive and Suicidal States. Real-world case studies incorporate the often-co-occurring trauma-based disorders found in depressive patients. These are practical “how-to” chapters, including one devoted to drawing integration with numerous examples of actual patient drawings as clients go through the EMDRprocess. Abundant illustrations enhance understanding of stress- and trauma-based depressive disorders and the successful interventions that improve client outcomes. Protocol scripts for therapist and client also help prepare readers to provide optimal treatment to their clients.
