  • Helps with complex prescribing needs The evidence base for drug treatments in psychiatry ranges from meta-analyses and randomised controlled clinical trials to single case reports, and from NICE guidelines to individual SPCs.  Where do you look for information when transferring a patient from one drug to another?  Where do you find a clear overview when dealing with a complex patient (e.g, with co-morbid epilepsy or liver disease or HIV infection)?   Where can you seek advice on prescribing psychotropics during pregnancy?  The Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines in Psychiatry! The leading clinical reference for handling prescribing problems as encountered in daily practice and for formulating prescribing policy.  Evidence-based and written by experts This book is the essential guide for anyone responsible for prescribing, dispensing or administering drugs for patients with mental health disorders.  All the evidence has been reviewed and summarized succinctly by an expert team of psychiatrists and pharmacists.  New content and improved format This new edition makes greater use of tables and boxes to facilitate quick reference and includes new sections on cytochrome-mediated interactions and psychiatric side effects of non-psychotropic drugs.

  • Ce numéro 138 de Les écrits nous fait pénétrer dans l'univers de Gérard Titus-Carmel, écrivain et peintre français de renommée internationale, et dans celui des Éditions de l'Hexagone qui célèbrent cette année leur 60e anniversaire. Tandis que le premier conjugue l'écrit et le peint « d'un même mouvement, en parallèle, sans conflit ni concurrence » (Antoine Émaz) et témoigne d'un parcours singulier, les seconds se font l'écho d'une pluralité et d'une diversité étonnantes, à l'image d'une littérature aussi jeune maintenant qu'elle ne l'était dans les années 50. Les oeuvres de Titus-Carmel se mêlent ainsi aux essais et aux poèmes et proses qui lui sont dédiés, puis elles accompagnent les multiples voix qui ont marqué les Éditions de l'Hexagone, telles que Jean Royer, André Brochu, France Théorêt et Michel Gay, pour ne nommer que ceux-ci.

  • This book provides a guide to research and teaching in an Australian Indigenous Studies that is oriented toward the diverse, contemporary world. Central to this perspective is a sensibility to the intercultural complexity of that world - particularly its Indigenous component - and an awareness of the interactional capabilities that the Indigenous (and others) need to successfully negotiate it. These capabilities are important for facilitating Indigenous peoples' goal of equality as citizens and recognition as Indigenous, a goal which this book seeks to address.
    The Indigenous Studies presented in this book rejects as unproductive the orientation of orthodox Indigenous Studies, which promulgates the retention of old cultures, positive stereotypes, binary oppositions and false certainties. It adopts a more dialogical and process-oriented approach that highlights interactions and relationships and leads to the recognition of cultural and identity multiplicity, intersection and ambiguous difference.
    The book covers key topics such as ancestral cultures, colonisation and its impacts, identity politics, interculturality, intersectionality, structural marginalisation, unit development and teaching complexity. The focus of the book is the development of a sensibility that can shape readers' perceptions, decisions and actions in the future and guide teachers in their negotiation of intercultural classroom relationships.
