            True stories of life, death and fate from a provincial pathologist Dr Cynric Temple-Camp's suspense-filled, often Gothic story-telling ability captivated readers in his debut book, The Cause of Death. In the Quick and the Dead, New Zealand's self-confessed aficionado of death is ...back with more mysterious illnesses, gruesome murders, baffling crimes, and the other curious, scarcely believable ways people meet their demise. The Quick and the Dead is also a book about life and the margins of survival - why some people live and others don't when faced with a seemingly similar peril. How much does luck, fate and chance play its part? What is the difference between life and death? What separates the quick and the dead?

            The Trouble with Trauma: Resolve the Impact of Abandonment and Fear of Rejection, and Understandthe Importance of Connection in Recovery (Paperback)

            In reality, trauma impacts all of us and many people just don't realise that traumatic experience is the basis of a lot of their unhappiness. The value of understanding ourselves is not always clear in relation to how we interact with others, how we treat ourselves or how we find... our best balance in order to feel that life is fun, enriching and fulfilling. You've heard of Maslow's 'Hierarchy of Needs' - all practical needs for survival. Our primary emotional need is for connection. Our connections as children denote our connective capacity as adults. Author, psychologist and trauma specialist Kerry Howard believes that our challenges as human beings all centre around a central theme: our childhood issues. These issues are at the basis of all of our health challenges in our lives. In The Trouble with Trauma, Kerry brings together the differing elements of trauma in one place incorporating biology, neurology, psychology, physiology and epigenetics to consider the reason that trauma causes physical and psychological changes in our bodies and what we can do to resolve them. Kerry peppers the book with her experiences in applying this information to her own life and with her clients. This book comes from a place of practical experience and credibility across all forms of personal transformation. Kerry provides down-to-earth advice on every aspect of the life-review process and provides a practical framework for understanding how trauma impacts our lives and what we can do to resolve it. The Trouble With Trauma is the answer for those people who have always wanted to be truly happy, focused on their health and satisfied in their bodies, who seek to gain a supportive network of friends and family and healthy relationships.

            A new crop of chemicals is radically changing the recreational-drug landscape. Known as Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPS), these chemicals include replacements for known drugs like cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana, and heroin. They are synthetic, made in a laboratory, and are much m...ore potent than traditional drugs - and, all too often, they are tragically lethal. Fentanyl, Inc. is the first deep-dive investigation of a hazardous illicit industry that has created a worldwide epidemic, ravaging communities and overwhelming and confounding the government agencies that are challenged to combat it. Drugs like fentanyl, with arcane acronyms like 4-ANPP, K2, and NBOMe, were all originally developed in legitimate laboratories for proper medicinal purposes. Their formulas were then hijacked by rogue chemists, largely in China but increasingly in other places, too, who change their molecular structures to stay ahead of the law, a process that makes the drugs' effects impossible to predict. Westhoff has infiltrated this shadowy world. In Fentanyl, Inc., he recounts how he tracked down a mysterious drug baron in New Zealand who unintentionally sparked one aspect of the synthetic-drug revolution. He visits the shady factories in China from which these drugs emanate, providing startling and original reporting on how China's vast chemical industry operates. He chronicles the lives of addicts and dealers, families of victims, law enforcement officers, and underground drug-awareness organisers in the U.S. and Europe. Together, they provide the shocking full picture of a calamity we are only just beginning to understand. And yet from its depths, as Westhoff relates, are emerging new strategies that may provide essential long-term solutions to the drug crisis that has affected so many.

            Splitting: The inside story on headaches

            Splitting: The inside story on headaches (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Ellison, Amanda

            A leading neurologist lifts the lid on head pain - a fascinating, accessible guide to headaches, with some practical advice along the way - from what causes migraines to how sinus pain happens to whether we should just reach for the painkillers and ignore the root causes. This is... Why We Sleep for the head. There is nothing novel about headache. Since time immemorial, humans have suffered in its grip. Medieval Persia was a hotbed of intense debate over how to avoid and subsequently cure headache, and castor oil seemed to be prevalent as a remedy. Thankfully we have moved on. Darwin became a recluse because of his headaches, but on the bright side, this gave him more time to stay at home and think about the origin of the species. I doubt any modern human sees their headache as being a blessing, but it is trying to tell you something. How do we find out what that is? What is the point of pain?

            Mindfulness for the Next Generation: Helping Emerging Adults Manage Stress and Lead Healthier Lives
              

            Mindfulness for the Next Generation: Helping Emerging Adults Manage Stress and Lead Healthier Lives (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)

            College students and other young adults today experience high levels of stress as they pursue personal, educational, and career goals. These struggles can have serious consequences, and may increase the risk of psychological distress and mental illness among the age group now com...monly referred to as emerging adults. Scientific research has shown that practicing mindfulness can help manage stress and enhance quality of life, but traditional methods of teaching mindfulness and meditation may not be effective for college-age adults. This fully updated second edition of Mindfulness for the Next Generation describes an evidence-based approach for teaching the useful and important skill of mindfulness to emerging adults. The manualized, four-session program outlined here, Koru Mindfulness, is designed to help young adults navigate challenging tasks, and achieve meaningful personal growth. Rogers and Maytan, psychiatrists and developers of Koru Mindfulness, also discuss the unique stressors emerging adults face, identify effective teaching techniques for working with them, and review the now-robust research supporting mindfulness for stress reduction in a scientifically rigorous yet reader-friendly way. Among the features new to this edition are new data on the effectiveness of the curriculum, an introduction to the Koru mindfulness teacher certification program, and adaptations for culturally informed practice, reflecting the international appeal of Koru Mindfulness as well as its growing use outside of college settings, and extensively revised in-session scripts. Mindfulness for the Next Generation is written for therapists, teachers, health professionals, and student service providers.
