  • Il peut paraître troublant que se côtoient ici ces deux praxis, le yoga et la psychanalyse, l'un se situant dans la tradition spirituelle de l'Inde, et l'autre dans le registre clinique de notre monde occidental. Qu'auraient-ils à voisiner ensemble quand tout semble les séparer?

    Aux premiers temps de mon expérience professionnelle, alors que j'adaptais le yoga auprès d'adolescents très perturbés, sa pratique m'est apparue comme la voie royale de la thérapie psychomotrice, l'antichambre de la parole pour tous ceux qui n'avaient pas accès au dire. Bien que la cure analytique demeure à mes yeux le seul dispositif capable de débusquer l'inconscient, et de faire à long terme muter les positions subjectives, le yoga et la psychanalyse offrent entre eux certains points de contact. Patañjali l'indique dans son traité des Yoga-Sûtra: s'alléger des causes de la souffrance n'est pas qu'une simple gymnastique du bien-être, c'est lier au spirituel le travail psychique qu'il implique. Freud, vingt-cinq siècles plus tard, s'applique à en comprendre la logique inconsciente. Il ne s'agit donc pas, dans le climat actuel de psychothérapie généralisée, d'inventer une nouvelle méthode, mais d'interroger les Yoga-Sûtra à la lumière de l'événement Freud au XXe siècle, et d'entendre de l'un à l'autre résonner les savoirs.

    Typically, exporting first appears on the radar of small businesses as unsolicited inquiries from foreign customers on the web via your email, website, blog, or Facebook page. People outside your country want your product, and they want it now. The problem is that most small business owners do not know how to service these inquiries. What's the best way to ship goods? Do I need a license? Should I sell through wholesalers in specific countries or directly to consumers? How will I get paid?

  • Over the last 25 years, the advances in ultrasound have paralleled advances in Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). ART could not even be practiced or considered today without imaging. Ultrasound has become the most important and widely used tool in the diagnosis and treatment of infertility. Ultrasound evaluation is one of the first steps to assess the cause of infertility; the three areas of evaluation are the ovaries, uterus, and fallopian tubes. Ultrasound allows physicians to diagnose ovarian reserve but also pathologies such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis, or other ovarian cysts that can impact fertility. The results of this initial exam immediately affect the decisions in the management of the patient's condition. When fertility treatments begin, ultrasound is used in almost any interaction with the patient in order to monitor follicular development and endometrial response; ultrasound guidance is also vital for embryo retrieval and transfer (ET).Ultrasound Imaging in Reproductive Medicine provides a comprehensive survey of the use of ultrasonography in the female pelvis for physicians, nurses, and ultrasonographers actively involved in reproductive medicine and infertility. With a critical evaluation of advantages and disadvantages, the book covers traditional and new technologies, including three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound for ovarian reserve, ovarian monitoring and endometrial cavity assessment, Ultrasound, MRI and CT evaluation of tubal patency, MRI guided ultrasound procedures for treatment of uterine fibroids, imaging techniques of the embryo and embryo transfer, and pulsed color Doppler techniques. 3D ultrasound to assess ovarian and endometrial volume and 3D automated monitoring of follicles are also covered in detail with up to date references.

  • This volume presents a comprehensive and practical approach to the treatment of suicide and NSSI for adolescents utilizing a mentalizing framework. The beginning of the text provides up-to-date information on  the theory of a mentalizing therapy in order to ground the readers in the neuroscientific underpinnings of a mentalizing approach. Next chapters provide information on the fundamental building blocks of a mentalizing therapy at the individual and family level. These chapters provide step-by-step approaches in order to provide examples of the techniques involved in mentalizing treatment that can be employed to address suicidality and NSSI.  The next chapter builds on these concepts as the reader learns about mentalizing failures involved in common co-morbidities in adolescents who are experiencing suicidality and/or employing NSSI. The next several chapters cover practical issues related to working within this patient population including the key concept of social systems and connections for both providers and adolescents, the ability of mentalizing theory and therapy to integrate with other effective therapies, how to approach sessions after a suicide attempt, resiliency for patient, family and the provider, along with important self-care for a therapist if a patient commits suicide. The final chapter brings all of the aforementioned elements together in order for the reader to conceptualize employing a mentalizing approach to adolescents and their families when suicide and NSSI concerns are a predominate focus of care. Illustrations of specific therapeutic approaches and a list of resources and guidelines where available are also included.Adolescent Suicide and Self-Injury is an excellent resource for all clinicians working with youths at risk for suicide and/or self-injury, including psychiatrists, psychologists, pediatricians, family medicine physicians, emergency medicine specialists, social workers, and all others.

  • Now in an updated edition, this is the most comprehensive book on modern ultrasound imaging in assisted reproductive technology (ART) and reproductive medicine. Fully revised and expanded, it covers emerging technologies possible with the improvement in ultrasound equipment. 3-D monitoring of ovarian follicles, bidirectional vibrant color and Doppler, and improved 3-D and 4-D imaging of reproductive structures are discussed. MRI-guided ultrasound procedures are covered, and comparisons of 3-D imaging with MRI imaging for uterine anomalies is reviewed with an emphasis on the advantages of 3-D performed in the gynecologist's office, and as a less expensive modality.The overall approach of the original edition is maintained, starting with ultrasound safety and technique and diagnosis of the ovary, uterus and fallopian tubes (both normal and pathologic), followed by both male and female infertility and ART treatments and procedures. Ultrasound monitoring of follicular development, the endometrium, and as an aid in embryo transfer to maximize IVF success rates are reviewed. Topics new to this edition include updated information on the diagnosis of benign and malignant adnexal masses, 3-D follicle monitoring, and the diagnosis of adenomyosis and endometriosis, including deep inseminated endometriosis. Additionally, the evaluation of endometrial receptivity, the use of contrasts for fallopian tube patency, controversies regarding septate uterus versus arcurate uterus with the use of 3-D ultrasound, and 3-D ultrasound with saline infusion sonogram and early pregnancy ultrasound are all discussed.An excellent resource for reproductive medicine and ART specialists, gynecologists and ultrasonographers alike, Ultrasound Imaging in Reproductive Medicine, Second Edition covers all that clinicians need to know about the role of ultrasound, from the first time a woman comes into the clinic for treatment, including ART, to early pregnancy monitoring. See better, do ART better.

  • Given the global crises confronting the world today, it is important to interrogate the notion of "the modern state" and to evaluate its effectiveness in providing security and services for its populations, including the most disadvantaged and vulnerable. This book investigates the modern state's capacity to serve its constituents by examining the organisations that facilitate two key elements of contemporary living: social capital and social enterprise. These elements are explored in a series of rich case studies located in Australia, Ireland and Bangladesh, with broader implications for policy and practice in the rest of the world. The case studies highlight the growing importance of social enterprise and social entrepreneurship in fostering social capital and in contributing to the idea of "the enabling state". This book will appeal to researchers, policy-makers and community leaders working in business, education, employment pathways, homelessness, housing, local government, mental health, public administration and refugee resettlement.                                                                                                                                             

  • The book offers a comprehensive analysis of public opinion toward presidential candidate spouses over the course of three decades, drawing on multiple theoretical frameworks including the concept of "new traditionalism" and a plethora of empirical data to explore why some spouses engender greater support than others-and what these reactions reveal about the American public and the gendered nature of the American presidency. Recognizing that presidential candidate spouses are important but understudied political actors, this book provides extensive analysis of public evaluations of Bill Clinton and Melania Trump during the 2016 presidential election as well as the presidential candidate spouses in the 1992 and 2012 elections and places public reaction to these individuals in historical context. The book considers important trends in U.S. elections including party polarization from the distinctive vantage points of candidate spouses and explores the symbolic importance of historic firsts including the first African American candidate spouse and the first male candidate spouse. No other work provides a systematic exploration of public opinion towards candidate spouses as distinct political entities across the modern political era.

  • Après vingt ans de mariage, la femme de Robert Collie s´est résignée à vivre avec un historien qui frétille de bonheur à la découverte d´un fragment de papyrus moisi ou d´un tesson d´amphore. Une fois par lustre, elle aimerait tout de même un peu d´attention. Un restaurant. Un cinéma. Ou les deux ! Pas de chance, Robert est noyé sous le travail : à la lumière de nouvelles sources, il se propose de contredire tout ce qu´on sait sur un tyran du Caucase mort depuis mille cinq cents ans. C´est urgent ! Urgentissime ! Le problème, c´est que l´Histoire n´est pas sans rapport avec le présent. Remettre en question un héros national au nom d´une prétendue rigueur historique est pure inconscience.
    Le pacifique Robert Collie s´apprête à froisser la susceptibilité de tout un peuple, dont certains éléments incontrôlés pourraient se montrer violents. Pour défendre sa thèse, le mari-historien va-t-il devoir sortir de son bureau ? Se transformer en historien-homme-d´action ? Il en a si peu le profil que sa femme se verra obligée de lui prêter main forte. Après un premier livre à l´humour caustique très remarqué, Sorbonne Confidential (Fayard, 2007), Laurel Zuckerman offre ici un roman d´aventures décalé, une comédie familiale loufoque, une satire du milieu de la recherche et une interrogation presque sérieuse sur la place de l´histoire dans la société - le tout d´un trait de plume vif et enlevé.
