The Behavioral Sciences and Health Care
Behavioral sciences for the next generation of health care providers.

The fourth edition of The Behavioral Sciences and Health Care provides trainees in every area of health care with foundational concepts of behavioral science as applied to individual and population health and disease. The text breathes new life into the biopsychosocial model by highlighting the integrated sciences model, which focuses on interdependence of the contributions made by all of the sciences basic to medicine. This integration is exemplified by the unifying conceptual framework of evolutionary science, in which increasingly complex gene individual environmental interactions explain behavior at the individual and social level.

Concise, updated chapters cover foundational elements of neuroscience, stress biology, normal psychology, and social factors in health care, addressing both traditional areas of behavioral science and topical concerns such as pain, palliative care, addictions, health care disparities, and violence. Uniquely among books of this kind, the text includes a thorough discussion of psychiatric disorders and therapies, aligned with current nosology (DSM-5). All chapters contain clinical pearls or vignettes, highlighted to emphasize applications in health care settings, as well as review questions and suggestions for further reading. A practice exam with extensive discussion of answers deepens
students understanding of core topics while preparing them for certifying and licensing exams.
This text is particularly suited for use in systems-based and casebased curricula. Individual chapters can be used creatively in flipped classrooms and other active learning environments. Accessible and
clear, without oversimplification, the book facilitates interdisciplinary education, providing a common core of knowledge for students in medicine, nursing, psychology, social work, and other health care
professions.

Frederic Church: A Painter's Pilgrimage
A beautiful overview of fascinating paintings of the classical world and the Holy Land by a beloved American artist 

Frederic Church (1826–1900), one of the leading painters of 19th-century America and the Hudson River School, also journeyed around the globe to find fresh inspiration for his highly detailed compositions. Among Church’s lesser-known masterpieces are his paintings of the Middle East, Italy, and Greece, produced in the late 1860s through late 1870s, which explore themes of human history and achievement.
 
Taking a closer look at this geographical and thematic shift in Church’s practice, this handsome book brings together the artist’s major paintings of Athens, Rome, Jerusalem, and the surrounding region. The essays concentrate on a set of six major paintings of architectural and archaeological marvels; one essay also spotlights Olana, Church’s home in New York State, which reflects the influence of Middle Eastern design. This impressive volume stands apart in its new approach to the artist’s work and its quest to determine why and how this quintessentially American figure was drawn to scenery and themes from the other side of the globe.

The Southern Foodways Alliance Community Cookbook

Everybody has one in their collection. You know―one of those old, spiral- or plastic-tooth-bound cookbooks sold to support a high school marching band, a church, or the local chapter of the Junior League. These recipe collections reflect, with unimpeachable authenticity, the dishes that define communities: chicken and dumplings, macaroni and cheese, chess pie. When the Southern Foodways Alliance began curating a cookbook, it was to these spiral-bound, sauce-splattered pages that they turned for their model.

Including more than 170 tested recipes, this cookbook is a true reflection of southern foodways and the people, regardless of residence or birthplace, who claim this food as their own. Traditional and adapted, fancy and unapologetically plain, these recipes are powerful expressions of collective identity. There is something from―and something for―everyone. The recipes and the stories that accompany them came from academics, writers, catfish farmers, ham curers, attorneys, toqued chefs, and people who just like to cook―spiritual Southerners of myriad ethnicities, origins, and culinary skill levels.

Edited by Sara Roahen and John T. Edge, written, collaboratively, by Sheri Castle, Timothy C. Davis, April McGreger, Angie Mosier, and Fred Sauceman, the book is divided into chapters that represent the region’s iconic foods: Gravy, Garden Goods, Roots, Greens, Rice, Grist, Yardbird, Pig, The Hook, The Hunt, Put Up, and Cane. Therein you’ll find recipes for pimento cheese, country ham with redeye gravy, tomato pie, oyster stew, gumbo z’herbes, and apple stack cake. You’ll learn traditional ways of preserving green beans, and you’ll come to love refried black-eyed peas.

Published in association with the Southern Foodways Alliance at the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi. A Friends Fund Publication.
