The Mental Health Professional and the New Technologies: A Handbook for Practice Today

Buy
Technology, used for both informational and telecommunication purposes, is becoming one of the most important factors in the future of health care delivery. One can see the oncoming change simply by surfing the Internet and looking at the proliferation of health-related Web sites. The 7 million Web sites uncovered by the Alta Vista search engine using the key words health care are actually only a fraction of what is available worldwide. Also discernible on the Web are the international, federal, state, and private sector initiatives supporting the development of an information infrastructure for global, national, and regional health care. For instance, the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), the American Telemedicine Association (ATA), and the American Telemedicine Service Providers (ATSP), as well as other private groups, are focused on providing leadership for the adoption of health care information technology and management systems. They help shape health care public policy and industry practices through advocacy and educational and professional development initiatives. Mental health care mirrors these trends of general health care.

By incorporating technologies into various facets of mental health care, from service delivery to practice management, "psychotechnologies"1 are dramatically changing the field. Even concepts of mental health treatment are affected by the psychotechnologies, as new therapeutic approaches are designed to benefit from technological innovation. When combined with the power of the Internet, the psychotechnologies promise not only increased accessibility and affordability, but also greater acceptability and adaptability in delivering care. This inevitable use of technology means opportunities abound for mental health practitioners who are ready to explore new avenues for service delivery. Mental health professionals need to learn about, and take advantage of, the technologies that have already transformed much of health care delivery.

Design and Analysis of Approximation Algorithms (Springer Optimization and Its Applications)
Design and Analysis of Approximation Algorithms (Springer Optimization and Its Applications)

Unlike other books on theoretical computer science, this textbook organizes approximation algorithms into chapters based on the design techniques for the algorithms. This allows the reader to study approximation algorithms of the same nature together.

Evolutionary Algorithms for Solving Multi-Objective Problems (Genetic and Evolutionary Computation)
Evolutionary Algorithms for Solving Multi-Objective Problems (Genetic and Evolutionary Computation)
Solving multi-objective problems is an evolving effort, and computer science and other related disciplines have given rise to many powerful deterministic and stochastic techniques for addressing these large-dimensional optimization problems. Evolutionary algorithms are one such generic stochastic approach that has proven to be successful and widely...

miRNA Regulation of the Translational Machinery (Progress in Molecular and Subcellular Biology)
miRNA Regulation of the Translational Machinery (Progress in Molecular and Subcellular Biology)

The silencing of gene expression by small interfering RNAs has been recognized for only a relatively short time, but this has transformed our understanding of both transcriptional and post-transcriptional gene regulatory mechanisms. Multiple pathways culminate in formation of an RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC) containing a member of the...
