Using new vocabulary and language to present this fresh world order that he calls the Great-Global Source-Ken Family. Phillips shares a thought-provoking plan. Righteous Orientation provides • an overview of the 200,000-year wave of human life in which Source-Ken World are the key players; • an elaborate glossary for the new words, a new time basis for humans, realistic expectations on how human systems change, and a discussion of pre-human primates; • a review of organization, intelligence quotients and standardized tests, solving the HIV-Aids problem, DNA, accountability (reparations), belief system, and vital relations between Source-Ken World; • a discussion of how to answer many questions from the past.

Although clinical trials were virtually unheard of in psychiatry for many years, they are now the gold standard for judging whether drugs are safe and useful. But should they be? What is the true status of clinical trials? Even when they ostensibly demonstrate a benefit of a certain treatment, the strict patient selection criteria, poor compliance and high drop-out rate leave the conclusions open to question. Are the new treatments really better or more cost-effective than the old? Do they have fewer side effects? In this book the authors take a critical look at recent developments and present a series of trenchant and challenging observations. Section I examines the significant changes in law and the regulatory environment that have occurred during the past ten years. Has fossilization handicapped the US Food and Drug Administration in promoting treatment advances? How can the plethora of findings be regulated? This is particularly pertinent in genomic studies and there are two chapters addressing the impact of genomics on psychiatric research. This section also addresses the role of women in drug trials – a group long excluded but now demanding a part, for without testing how can optimal treatments be devised? The next two Sections highlight clinical trials in the major areas of psychiatric pharmacological treatment, including Mood Disorders, especially Bipolar, Anxiety Disorders, and addictions. Chapters on pharmacological treatments for Eating Disorders, Attention Deficit Disorder, Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome, and Impulse Control Disorder represent the latest thinking on these subjects. The final Section contains a consummate example of out-of-the [Western]- box thinking, namely consideration of herbal medicines – used by a large number of patients, with or without medical supervision. We conclude with a close look at the problem of side effects, then selected thoughts about methodology. Clearly written, the text provides immediate access to new developments across the spectrum of drug testing. Clinical Trials in Psychopharmacology: A Better Brain is provocative reading for psychiatrists, pharmacologists and all those interested in improved drug treatments for patients with mental illness. Raises questions about the conduct of trials and the credibility of their outcomes that are relevant not just in psychiatry but all areas of medicine Discusses the ethical problems in assessing outcomes in humans, including children

Do you ever wish that you knew some very basic things about God when you first committed your life to Him? This book is an exposition into how the truth and power of the Word of God can transform the lives of the people who believe in Jesus Christ. Do you know that: God is the ultimate symbol of trust and commitment to all who need to depend on someone. There is a far-reaching benefit from godliness that cannot be obtained apart from faith, because faith in God through Christ Jesus is a firm foundation, upon which we who believe can truly rest. Faith gives substance to something that does not exist physically, but can be conceived in our hearts, spoken about, and believed in. The believer cannot pursue purpose without gaining a deep and life-changing revelation of his identity in Christ Jesus. This book is worth reading. Read more. A Christian for more than 15 years, Robert Odam has studied basic Christian growth, taught Bible study classes, and designed and directed new converts classes. His book is based on subjects he personally developed and taught in his current church when he was superintendent of Bible study classes. He believes the topics in this book are as relevant today as ever-and it will continue to be as long as there are more Christians coming to God. Robert Odam is currently a minister in his church in Crystal, Minnesota. Dr. Robert Odam is also a full time Family Practice doctor who works out of a medical clinic in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The goal of Psychopharmacology Demystified is to get the internal light-bulbs of insight to glow by using every-day situations and personal vignettes to illuminate complicated ideas and concepts usinglanguage that nursing students can understand. The text begins with a primer on neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, since this knowledge is a prerequisite for understanding the ensuing chapters covering antidepressants, mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, anxiolytic-sedative-hypnotics and cognitive enhancers, as well as a chapter on substance abuse and addiction. Each chapter begins with a personal story, followed by an overview of the topic, the history of pharmacological management, a review of the major drugs in use, and concludes with current insights and future directions of therapy. While it can be used as a free-standing text, it is meant to be used in conjunction with more traditional psychiatric nursing books and pharmacotherapy textbooks.
