Women with Alcoholic Husbands by Asher

English | April 10th, 1992 | ISBN: 0807820288, 0807843733 | 240 pages | PDF | 11.30 MB

In this important study of women with alcoholic husbands, Asher vividly describes the process of coming to terms with a profound crisis in one’s private life. From interviews with more than fifty women, all of whom were participants in family treatment programs, she assembles a composite picture of the experiences shared by wives of alcoholics.
The testimony given by these women illustrates the steps they must take to regain control of their lives. The first step is figuring out what is happening and deciding what to do about it. Asher argues that the vogue of using the label “codependent” may actually hinder rather than facilitate emotional health. Led to think of themselves as addicted to their husbands’ addictions the wives of alcoholics may be persuaded that their own problems can’t be overcome. But, Asher shows, these women can take command of their lives.

Nutrition and Cardiometabolic Health by Nathalie Bergeron, Patty W. Siri-Tarino, George A. Bray, Ronald M. Krauss

2017 | ISBN: 1498704263 | English | 642 pages | PDF | 19 MB

Nutrition plays a key role in prevention of cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide. Diet influences a broad spectrum of cardiometabolic risk factors, notably a cluster including excess adiposity, dyslipidemia, impaired glucose metabolism and high blood pressure. In the face of the rapidly increasing incidence of obesity and diabetes, maintaining cardiometabolic health through adoption of a healthy lifestyle is a top public health priority.
In this book, Nutrition and Cardiometabolic Health, international experts present state-of-the-art scholarly reviews of dietary and lifestyle effects on metabolic systems associated with cardiovascular health and disease. It covers a broad range of topics including biological and behavioral processes regulating food intake; lifestyle and surgical approaches to weight loss; nutritional considerations for optimal cardiometabolic health across the lifespan; the relationship of macronutrients, whole foods and dietary patterns to diabetes and cardiovascular disease; and diet as a modulator of gene expression, epigenetics and the gut microbiome and the relationship of these traits to disorders of metabolism. This book provides its readers with an authoritative view of the present state of knowledge of dietary effects on cardiometabolic health and will be of interest to nutrition and healthcare professionals alike.

Foreword by Terry Crawford, Director of Coaching, USATF
Since the outstanding success of his New Zealand athletes Snell, Halberg and Magee at the 1960 Rome Olympics, Arthur Lydiard’s name has been synonymous with the best training methods used by the world’s top middle- and long distance runners. His schedules precipitated an athletic revolution, stressing as they did physiological conditioning as a prerequisite to sporting effort, and long-duration even-pace running at a strong speed as the means of achieving this. While instructing runners and coaches in Finland, Mexico, Venezuela, Denmark, Japan, the United States and New Zealand for more than 50 years, Arthur Lydiard always continued to experiment and refine his methods methods that are still as relevant today as they were over half a century ago.
Running With Lydiard contains expanded information on exercise physiology, diet, injury prevention and cure, discussion of Lydiard’s methods and revised training schedules.

“Parenting: Empirical Advances and Intervention Resources” ed. by Loredana Benedetto and Massimo Ingrassia

ITexLi | 2017 | ISBN: 9535138189 9789535138181 9535138170 9789535138174 | 110 pages | PDF | 6 MB

The volume focuses on some relevant theoretical issues related to children’s and adolescent adjustments, adult maternal and paternal behaviors, and their self-efficacy beliefs and competence interacting with children’s characteristics. The volume presents evidence-based treatments involving parents as key components of the intervention strategies for childhood internalizing/externalizing disorders.
Through parenting, adults raise their children and introduce them into the belonging community. Parents are active determinants of their children’s well-being, but children themselves are too.
Parent behaviors produce changes and consequences in the child’s emotive-behavioral adjustment; thus, a modification of the parenting style may be an effective way to help children and to ameliorate the family climate. Practitioners interested in parenting will find in the updated studies here reviewed new suggestions for preventive family interventions.
