Across the last forty years, epidemiology has developed into a vibrant scientific discipline that brings together the social and biological sciences, incorporating everything from statistics to the philosophy of science in its aim to study and track the distribution and determinants of healthevents. A now-classic text, the second edition of this essential introduction to epidemiology presents the core concepts in a unified approach that aims to cut through the fog and elucidate the fundamental concepts. Rather than focusing on formulas or dogma, the book presents basic epidemiologicprinciples and concepts in a coherent and straightforward exposition. By emphasizing a unifying set of ideas, students will develop a strong foundation for understanding the principles of epidemiologic research.
A Comprehensive, Systematic Evaluation of Treatment Effectiveness for Major Psychological Disorders. With over 500 types of psychotherapy being practiced in the field today, navigating the maze of possible treatments can be daunting for clinicians and researchers, as well as for consumers who seek help in obtaining psychological services. Evidence-Based Psychotherapy: The State of Science and Practice offers a roadmap to identifying the most appropriate and efficacious interventions, and provides the most comprehensive review to date of treatments for psychological disorders most often encountered in clinical practice. Each chapter applies a rigorous assessment framework to evaluate psychotherapeutic interventions for a specific disorder. The authors include the reader in the evaluation scheme by describing both effective and potentially non-effective treatments.
Public health professionals, field epidemiologists, health management workers and health policymakers are increasingly concerned about the potential impact that climate change can have on public health. Climate not only determines the spatial and seasonal distribution of many public health events, such as infectious diseases, health outcomes of disasters and nutrition, but also is a key determinant of extreme heat waves and storm events that result in large impacts on morbidity and mortality. However, few public health professionals are aware of the ways in which climate information may help them manage the impacts of climate on their disease surveillance and control activities, as well as program implementation and evaluation. Climate Information for Public Health Action fills an identified knowledge gap for health policy makers and practitioners (along with climate service providers) in exploring why, when and how climate information can and should be incorporated into health decision-making. Drawing together contributions from a range of key thinkers in the field, this volume will focus on three climate sensitive health outcome areas: infectious disease, hydrometeorological disasters, and nutrition.
