Sleep Disorders

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

This sourcebook presents the history of sleep disorders from restless legs to insomnia to night terrors, alongside emerging research, illustrations of sleep disorders in society, and treatments.

Part of the Health and Psychology Sourcebooks series, this compact volume offers concise information on an issue threatening human health and well-being: sleep disorders. The authors are established psychologists and researchers specializing in the study of sleep and sleep disorders, one an editor for the Journal of Sleep Disorders and Therapy and the other a certified behavioral sleep medicine specialist.

The book begins with an introduction that underscores how prevalent sleep disorders and the condition of sleep deprivation are in this nation and why they are considered a public health concern. Chapters explain and illustrate disorders including apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy, nightmares, night terrors, and sleepwalking, with each chapter providing an empirical review followed by a case study. For each disorder, history; signs and symptoms; incidence; theory; personal, familial, societal, and economic factors; treatments and solutions; and emerging research are included.



  • Integrates current and emerging theory and research
  • Illustrates the disorders in society, at work, and in relationships in "Up Close" case studies
