Three Men in a Boat is a humorous book, written by the British author Jerome K. Jerome, about a two-week boating expedition on the River Thames. The book was originally supposed to be used as a serious travel guide but that gave way to the timeless humor as Jerome kept writing it. Jerome would later write Three Men on the Bummel, a sequel to this classic book.
Martyrs to hypochondria and general seediness, J. and his friends
George and Harris decide that a jaunt up the Thames would suit them to
a 'T'. But when they set off, they can hardly predict the troubles that
lie ahead with tow-ropes, unreliable weather-forecasts and tins of
pineapple chunks â€“ not to mention the devastation left in the wake of
J.'s small fox-terrier Montmorency.
Hallucination-focused Integrative Treatment (HIT) is a specific treatment for auditory verbal hallucinations which integrates techniques from CBT, systems therapy, psychoeducation, coping training, rehabilitation and medication. It emphasises active family involvement, crisis intervention when required and specialised motivational strategies. In clinical trials HIT has been proven to have longer lasting and wider ranging effects than other therapies, high patient satisfaction scores and a low drop-out rate.
In Hallucination-focused Integrative Therapy, Jack Jenner presents a full manual for using HIT with patients. Divided into five parts, the book offers a clear and straightforward explanation of each aspect of the treatment. Part One introduces auditory verbal hallucinations in their social and historical context. Part Two explains the need for an integrative approach to treating them and sets out the eleven-step diagnostic procedure. Part Three describes the treatment in full, including motivational strategies, the constituent modules and how to integrate them, flexible implementation of a tailor-made procedure and its overall effectiveness. It also demonstrates the use of HIT with specific patient groups, including those suffering from trauma, children and adolescents, those who are suicidal and those with learning difficulties. Part Four examines other hallucination-focused therapies. Finally, Part Five covers insight-oriented psychotherapies. The book also includes several appendices of supplementary material which enhance the content.
Illustrated throughout with case studies and clinical material, Hallucination-focused Integrative Therapywill be of interest to psychiatrists, psychologists, psychiatric nurses and social workers working with patients who experience auditory verbal hallucinations.
