Summary

A look inside the historic mental hospital that served as the location for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest—includes photos.   Seen through the eyes of those who lived there, this book examines the world of a mental hospital established in Salem, Oregon, in 1883—where, in desperate attempts to cure their patients, physicians injected them with deadly medications, cut holes in their heads, and sterilized them.   Years of insufficient funding caused the hospital to decay into a crumbling, understaffed facility, which was later used as the setting for the 1975 film One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Today, after a $360 million makeover, Oregon State Hospital is a modern treatment hospital for the state’s civil and forensic mentally ill. In this compelling account of the institution’s tragedies and triumphs, author Diane Goeres-Gardner offers an unparalleled look at the very human story of Oregon’s historic asylum.

    In 2005 a Chinook helicopter carrying sixteen Special Ops soldiers crashed during a rescue mission in a remote part of Afghanistan, killing everyone on board.In that instant, machine gunner Caleb Daniels lost his best friend, Kip Jacoby, and seven members of his unit. Back in the U.S., Caleb begins to see them everywhere—dead Kip, with his Alice in Wonderland tattoos, and the rest of them, their burned bodies watching him. But there is something else haunting Caleb, too—a presence he calls the Black Thing, or the Destroyer, a paralyzing horror that Caleb comes to believe is a demon.Alone with these apparitions, Caleb considers killing himself. There is an epidemic of suicide among veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, men and women with post-traumatic stress disorder who cannot cope with ordinary life in the aftermath of explosions and carnage. Jennifer Percy finds herself drawn to their stories, wanting to comprehend their experiences and pain.Her subject, Caleb, has been bringing damaged veterans to a Christian exorcism camp in Georgia that promises them deliverance from the war. As Percy spends time with these soldiers and exorcists and their followers—finding their beliefs both repel­lant and magnetic—she enters a world of fanaticism that is alternately terrifying and welcoming.With a jagged lyricism reminiscent of Michael Herr and Denis Johnson, Demon Camp is the riveting true story of a veteran with PTSD and an explora­tion of the battles soldiers face after the war is over. Percy's riveting account forces us to gaze upon the true human consequences of the War on Terror.

    The classic “gripping account” of three young doctors in training at a New York City hospital, updated with a new preface and afterword (The New York Times Book Review). 
     
    While supervising a small group of interns at a major New York medical center, Dr. Robert Marion asked three of them to keep a careful diary over the course of a year. Andy, Mark, and Amy vividly describe their real-life lessons in treating very sick children; confronting child abuse and the awful human impact of the AIDS epidemic; skirting the indifference of the hospital bureaucracy; and overcoming their own fears, insecurities, and constant fatigue. Their stories are harrowing and often funny; their personal triumph is unforgettable. 
     
    This updated edition of The Intern Blues includes a new preface from the author discussing the status of medical training in America today and a new afterword updating the reader on the lives of the three young interns who first shared their stories with readers more than a decade ago. 
     
    “Thought-provoking, informative.” —Publishers Weekly 
     
    ‘The diary format effectively dramatizes the often-agonizing decisions and compromises that are made in the face of sleepless nights and inexperience . . . an important book for anyone contemplating the long, arduous task of becoming a doctor.” —Library Journal

    Problem Solving - Solution Focus

    This short audio learning experience by Dr Denis McBrinn: narrated by Sara Dylan is designed to bring a clear understanding of what problem solving is, how to do it effectively and to lead you gently into reflection on the level of effective problem solving currently in your life. 
     
    "Focus on finding a solution, rather than just dwelling on the problem". Good problem solvers put the focus on finding a solution rather than the problem. Defining a problem clearly and correctly is important - a problem fully stated is half-solved. But most of us spend 80% of the time on the problem and only 20% on finding a solution. We tend to be "Problem Focused" rather than "Solution Focused" because it is easier to blame than act. 
     
    This audio learning experience includes a guided process for using left and right brain characteristics for problem solving. 
     
    How this audio learning experience works 
    This audio presentation has been designed using an experiential learning model, Kolb, D. A. (1984): concrete learning, reflective observation, abstract conceptualization, and active experimentation. 
    By taking this approach we hope to cater for all learning styles. 
    You will be given specific new information in the recording usually as “key tips”, “explanations” and “quotes”. You will be led through a gentle but positive meditative reflection process to assist you before conceptualisation and then putting your new skills into practice. 
    You will be encouraged to return to the recording from time to time to re-listen and reinforce your learning and the desired changes in your life. 
    Enjoy!
