"Every mass shooting in America raises the question of whether there would be fewer such shootings if people who have mental illness were locked away. Of course, some perpetrators were already being treated when they acted, and some never gave any sign that they might be dangerous before they acted. Nevertheless, the question of involuntary commitment comes up over and over again when a mass shooting occurs. In Committed, psychiatrists Dinah Miller and Anne Hanson offer a comprehensive account of the controversy surrounding involuntary psychiatric care in the United States. Through interviews and cases they explore the clinicians, consumers, advocates, institutions, and laws involved. They talk with people who have been involuntarily committed--both those who have been helped by this treatment and those who have been traumatized by it--and with doctors who believe that more people with mental illness should be treated, even against their will. They talk with families, policemen, ED staff, judges, someone from the Church of Scientology, representatives from NAMI and APA, and medical administrators of inpatient facilities. They explore practices such as seclusion and restraint, involuntary medications, and involuntary electroconvulsive therapy--all within the context of civil rights. Miller and Hanson explain why some people push for increased involuntary treatment while others view psychiatrists as money-hungry power mongers and their medications as the cause, not the cure, of symptoms. The authors take a middle view, advocating for the limited and judicious use of involuntary and humane psychiatric care as a last resort when someone poses a danger to themselves or others"--

COMMITTED is the ultimate recruiting resource for the pre-collegiate women's lacrosse player. Lacrosse, as with all sports, is a wonderful vehicle; a means to an end, not an end on its own. With that perspective, COMMITTED guides its reader through the process, speaking both to her emotional and rational needs. The recruiting cycle can challenge the simple, untainted love for the sport, change a player's motivation, and test her skills and focus, and this manual will arm her with all the tools to handle each step of the way, emotionally and rationally. There must be a healthy balance of approaching this cycle with mindfulness and focus, and with heart and spirit. COMMITTED provides the perfect equation to doing so while also ensuring the reader that they are leaving no stone unturned in the recruiting process.

Designed for use by mental health professionals and graduate students, Committed Action in Practice clearly conceptualizes committed action—an integral aspect of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)—and offers a deeper investigation of the first of the six core processes of ACT. The book also provides comprehensive descriptions and insight into the conceptualization, integration, and application of committed action in therapy. Committed action is an important part of the hexaflex model for acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)—the other core processes being acceptance, defusion, self-as-context and perspective taking, values clarification, and mindfulness. In practice, committed action happens when clients act in the direction of their identified values, even in the presence of obstacles. Written by Patricia Bach, Daniel J. Moran, and Sonja Batten—three ACT-oriented experts and trainers who are highly prolific in the field of modern behavioral psychology—Committed Action in Practice is a deep, focused exploration of this core aspect of ACT. With sections on the conceptualization, application, and integration of committed action in ACT, you’ll gain an understanding of how this process fits into the hexaflex model, what blocks people from taking values-based action, and how to blend the committed action component of ACT with other evidence-based therapies. With this comprehensive guide, you’ll know just how committed action works in an ACT treatment plan and be ready to apply it in practice.

Between 1902 and 1934, the United States confined hundreds of adults and children from dozens of Native nations at the Canton Asylum for Insane Indians, a federal psychiatric hospital in South Dakota. But detention at the Indian Asylum, as families experienced it, was not the beginning or end of the story. For them, Canton Asylum was one of many places of imposed removal and confinement, including reservations, boarding schools, orphanages, and prison-hospitals. Despite the long reach of institutionalization for those forcibly held at the Asylum, the tenacity of relationships extended within and beyond institutional walls. In this accessible and innovative work, Susan Burch tells the story of the Indigenous people—families, communities, and nations, across generations to the present day—who have experienced the impact of this history. Drawing on oral history interviews, correspondence, material objects, and archival sources, Burch reframes the histories of institutionalized people and the places that held them. Committed expands the boundaries of Native American history, disability studies, and U.S. social and cultural history generally.

The Committed Enterprise represents Hugh Davidson's major statement on what makes a sustainable and excellent organization. It is based on over a year of intense fieldwork during which the author interviewed in person the most senior executives in 126 organizations in the US and Europe. It is much easier to describe vision and values than implement them. Vision and values management is in the dark ages compared with that of Marketing, Finance or Operations. It is often derided and all too often just doesn't work. The Committed Enterprise takes a hard approach to this 'soft' topic and describes how to build unstoppable organisations, whether businesses or charities, hospitals or orchestras, by managing vision and values scientifically yet creatively. It shows how to lay the foundations for success by understanding the conflicting needs of stakeholders and uniting them through the right vision and values. These forge uncompromising commitment, and transform organizations, teams and countries. Hugh Davidson details Seven Best Practices for making vision and values work every day, at every level, based on analysis of his interviews with leaders of 125 high calibre enterprises in USA and UK. These include: · Design and timing · Linkage to key success factors · Communicating through action · Embedding via appraisal and rewards · Branding the organization · Rigorous measurement Using a unique fast track / scenic route format, the book includes hundreds of examples, quotes and checklists from enterprises as diverse as PepsiCo, Caltech, Tesco, Mayo Clinic, BP, New York Police Department, DuPont, Save the Children, UPS, New York Philharmonic, and many others. The Committed Enterprise brings a new dimension to managing organisations. It is designed for leaders and managers of every kind of enterprise. So buy it, read it, then make it happen!

Committed to Disillusion

Can a writer help to bring about a more just society? This question was at the heart of the movement of al-adab al-multazim, or committed literature, which claimed to dominate Arab writing in the mid-twentieth century. By the 1960s, however, leading Egyptian writers had retreated into disillusionment, producing agonized works that challenged the key assumptions of socially engaged writing. Rather than a rejection of the idea, however, these works offered reinterpretation of committed writing that helped set the stage for activist writers of the present. David DiMeo focuses on the work of three leading writers whose socially committed fiction was adapted to the disenchantment and discontent of the late twentieth century: Naguib Mahfouz, Yusuf Idris, and Sonallah Ibrahim. Despite their disappointments with the direction of Egyptian society in the decades following the 1952 revolution, they kept the spirit of committed literature alive through a deeply introspective examination of the relationship between the writer, the public, and political power. Reaching back to the roots of this literary movement, DiMeo examines the development of committed literature from its European antecedents to its peak of influence in the 1950s, and contrasts the committed works with those of disillusionment that followed. Committed to Disillusion is vital reading for scholars and students of Arabic literature and the modern history and politics of the Middle East.
