Self made Men

In Self-Made Men, Henry Rubin explores the production of male identities in the lives of twenty-two FTM transsexuals--people who have changed their sex from female to male. The author relates the compelling personal narratives of his subjects to the historical emergence of FTM as an identity category. In the interviews that form the heart of the book, the FTMs speak about their struggles to define themselves and their diverse experiences, from the pressures of gender conformity in adolescence to being mistaken for "butch lesbians," from hormone treatments and surgeries to relationships with families, partners, and acquaintances. Their stories of feeling betrayed by their bodies and of undergoing a "second puberty" are vivid and thought-provoking. Throughout the interviews, the subjects' claims to having "core male identities" are remarkably consistent and thus challenge anti-essentialist assumptions in current theories of gender, embodiment, and identity. Rubin uses two key methods to analyze and interpret his findings. Adapting Foucault's notions of genealogy, he highlights the social construction of gender categories and identities. His account of the history of endocrinology and medical technologies for transforming bodies demonstrates that the "family resemblance" between transsexuals and intersexuals was a necessary postulate for medical intervention into the lives of the emerging FTMs. The book also explores the historical emergence of the category of FTM transsexual as distinguished from the category of lesbian woman and the resultant "border disputes" over identity between the two groups. Rubin complements this approach with phenomenological concepts that stress the importance of lived experience and the individual's capacity for knowledge and action. An important contribution to several fields, including sociology of the body, gender and masculinity, human development, and the history of science, Self-Made Me will be of interest to anyone who has seriously pondered what it means to be a man and how men become men.

While the ABPN has now supplied such standards for psychiatry,psychiatric interviewing instruction has not been standardized inthe US or in other countries. Similarly, the few psychiatricinterviewing books available are written in textbook form, oftenlong and often from the subpecialty perspective (e.g. psychodynamicinterviewing). Critically, no interviewing guides to datetake a true biopsychosocial perspective. That is, they limitthemselves to “interviewing” as an isolated techniquedivorced from full patient assessment, which for quality patientcare must include the interface of psychological and socialcomponents with biological components. Similarly, fewinterviewing texts are fully integrated with DSM/ICD categoricaldiagnostic schemata, even though these descriptive diagnosticsystems represent the very core of our clinical language—thelingua franca of the mental health professions. Without good descriptive diagnoses there cannot be adequatecommunication of clinical data among providers. The proposed book will meet this need for training inbiopsychosocial assessment and diagnosis. The patient interview is at the heart of psychiatricpractice. Listening and interviewing skills are the primarytools the psychiatrist uses to obtain the information needed tomake an accurate diagnosis and then to plan appropriatetreatment. The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology andthe Accrediting Council on Graduate Medical Educationidentify interviewing skills as a core competency forpsychiatric residents. The Psychiatric Interview: evaluation and diagnosis is anew and modern approach to this topic that fulfills the need fortraining in biopsychosocial assessment and diagnosis. Itmakes use of both classical and new knowledge of psychiatricdiagnosis, assessment, treatment planning and doctor-patientcollaboration. Written by world leaders in education, the book isbased on the acclaimed Psychiatry Third Edition byTasman, Kay et al, with new chapters to address assessment inspecial populations and formulation. The psychiatricinterview is conceptualized as integrating the patient's experiencewith psychological, biological, and environmental components of theillness. This is an excellent new text for psychiatry residents at allstages of their training. It is also useful for medicalstudents interested in psychiatry and for practicingpsychiatrists who may wish to refresh their interviewingskills.

Fundamentals of the Physical Therapy Examination: Patient Interview and Tests & Measures introduces physical therapy students to essential screening and examination techniques that form the foundation of their practice, across all body systems. It then builds on the foundational knowledge and helps students develop clinical decision-making skills. Experienced clinicians make numerous and rapid decisions about what questions to ask during a patient interview, what systems need to be screened for problems that lie outside the scope of physical therapy, and what tests and measures must be performed during an initial patient examination. Physical therapy students and some new graduates often struggle with this decision-making process and answering the why questions. This text provides the reader with fundamental, step-by-step approach to the subjective and objective portions of the examination process for a broad spectrum of patients within the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, integumentary, and cardiopulmonary realms (according to the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice). Ample rationale is provided for why a test/measure would or would not be selected based on the patient s diagnosis or presentation. In addition to rationale to help with the clinical decision-making process, case examples and sample documentation will also be provided.
