The Other Brain: From Dementia to Schizophrenia, How New Discoveries About the Brain are Revolutionizing Medicine and Science
by R. Douglas Fields, PhD

8.0 CE credits  --------    Intermediate level  

This book looks at a part of the brain that has been largely ignored until recently – the glia cells.  It is a fascinating account of these cells and their many functions and involvement in health and disease, and also an illustration of the tendency science sometimes has to overlook important information or ignore paths of research because they do not fit into the currently accepted dogma or paradigm.  Includes chapters on how glial cells may be involved in disease processes such as Alzheimer's, mental health issues such as addiction, and the underpinnings of learning and memory.

A Place of Healing: Working with Nature and Soul at the End of Life

A Place of Healing: Working with Nature and Soul at the End of Life

by Michael Kearney

10.0 hours of CE Credit  -----  Advanced level                  

This book takes the position that modern medicine (the medical model) is invaluable, but has become divorced from other ways of working with patients which could support their health, emotional lives and help with the existential questions brought about by illness and the idea of impending death.  Dr. Kearney looks to the ancient Greek god Asklepios and the history and mythology around Asklepian healing for an approach that could (and in his hands does) complement modern medicine.  This approach uses Depth Psychology, dreamwork and the idea that it is who the healer is – not what she knows – that matters in helping with these existential concerns.

Manufacturing Depression: The Secret History of a Modern Disease

Description

Manufacturing Depression: The Secret History of a Modern Disease (2010)
by Gary Greenberg.

9.0 hours of CE Credit     --------     Intermediate Level          

The book follows two tracks: The major theme focuses on the history of psychiatric thinking about and treatment of the thing we now all too easily call depression, and leads to an analysis of the current mainstream medical view of depression and its treatment. The second thread in the book is about Dr. Greenberg’s own experience of depression and his participation in a clinical trial at Massachusetts General Hospital as a patient. He includes his own doubts about whether most depression is the kind of illness we currently see it as, and his experiences as a psychotherapist with severely, mildly and moderately depressed patients.  This includes a discussion about what we lose when we look at our sadness as a brain disease.
