What starts as personal dissatisfaction in the workplace can become personal transformation that changes clinical practice and ultimately changes the culture of medicine. Physicians and professionals train extensively to relieve suffering. Yet the systems they train and practice in create suffering for both themselves and their clients through the neglect of basic human needs. True healthcare reform requires addressing dehumanization in medicine by caring for the whole person of the professional and the patient. Re-humanizing Medicine provides a holistic framework to support human connection and the expression of full human being of doctors, professionals and patients. A clinician needs to be a whole person to treat a whole person, thus the work of transformation begins with clinicians. As professionals work to transform themselves, this will in turn transform their clinical practices and healthcare institutions.

Over 10 million adults in the United States have chronic problems with dizziness and imbalance - vestibular problems. This compares to 400,000 with multiple sclerosis or 1.5 million with autism for example, both chronic illnesses with much greater name recognition. Vestibular problems are difficult to diagnose and treat. While vestibular problems come with various medical names (Meniere's, Perilymph Fistula, Endolymphatic Hydrops, Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), Mal de Debarquement (MdDS), and others) they present a common challenge for the affected person on how to deal with the dizziness and eventually find balance. Finding Balance addresses over a decade of illness, from the initial two years searching for a diagnosis, through the long years of treatment and finally to the period of rebuilding a life within the confines of what dizziness and vertigo will allow. Finding Balance provides a detailed description of symptoms, what can trigger them, the emotional reactions to symptoms, how to recognize their subtle differences, and how to track them in order to contribute to your own diagnosis. It also emphasizes the patient's responsibility for healing and eventually how to find the inner balance in life that will be necessary to equitably live with these symptoms over time. And it provides a sense of time, of patience. Special Features of Finding Balance Include: Call-out boxes presenting facts and tips for dealing with the disorder All of the medical information in the book has been reviewed by vestibular specialists for accuracy Bulleted lists at the end of chapter with advice to the reader on next steps

The Peaceful Mind:Finding Balance Within Your Emotions and Caring For Your Mental Health, and Recreating Yourself from Within Andrew thinks that his life sucks. He has received three queries in the office in the past three months and another one could mean indefinite suspension. However, he does not know what to do. Everything just seems to be coming down on him at the same time. As he left the office that evening, he decided to take the LA Metro Rail heading home. Highlighting at the Union station near downtown, Andrew boarded a bus but stopped about five streets before his home. He then decided to take a walk the rest of the way. The thought of going home also did not sound appealing to Andrew. He is sure to meet a not-so cheerful wife who has lost her enthusiasm for everything. He couldn’t also stomach seeing their only child, Jason still in his deplorable state, health-wise. Life for Andrew and Janet has been so uneventful for the couple in the past four years now. A sick child whose condition seems to defy medical solution, Janet’s recent loss of job due to regular absenteeism to cater to their sick son and now Andrew’s ever-mounting problems at work. As he walked, Andrew assessed the current situation in his life. As a Sales Executive, the figures have not been looking so good in the past four months and the Marketing Manager can’t stand the situation anymore. Now, his job is on the line. “Phew! So what’s the way out of this whole mess?” Andrew asked himself! Part of Andrew’s story reflects a lot of people’s reality out there. And having a higher emotional intelligence can help you address some of the issues that make you feel like you are stuck in life. Agreed, emotional intelligence will not resolve a critical health situation and more but with a more balanced emotional state, you can get every other aspect of your personal and corporate life back in shape. This book, on Emotional Intelligence, exposes some of the underlying principles that can help you become a highly effective and emotionally mature person. It also incorporates actionable steps and workbooks to use in improving your emotional intelligence to becoming the person of your dreams. Are you ready to begin your journey to self-discovery?

From the reviews of the First Edition: "This book is an ambitious and important contribution to the care of our most wounded patients. For those of us who regularly care for vulnerable patients, it provides an excellent resource and supportive guide.

All physicians have much to learn from the practical, evidence-based approaches to the societal issues we all face in practice. Ultimately, this is a book that could help all clinicians take better care of all patients, especially those who may need extra help and support as they navigate our complex health care system." -- New England Journal of Medicine The Second Edition features: Fully revised to reflect passage and impact of the Affordable Care Act on care of underserved patients Expanded with major new chapters, from Health Quality to Rural Healthcare, and additional content relevant to nursing Focused on evidence-based practice with a patient-centered approach Full color format Boxed main points and Practical "Pearls,” such as how to write a disability letter PowerPoint slides and question sets, exercises, and cases to aid instruction
