  • The Caregiver: A Life With Alzheimer's, with new material (The Culture and Politics of Health Care Work)

    The Caregiver: A Life With Alzheimer's, with new material (The Culture and Politics of Health Care Work)

    Karton Kapak
    Aaron and Stella Alterra had been married for more than sixty years when Aaron began to notice puzzling lapses in his wife's memory. Innocuous at first, they became more severe and more alarming. After a series of appointments and tests, the Alterras were informed that Stella was one of the more than 4.5 million Americans with Alzheimer's disease.Combining medical research on the disease and often-painful anecdotes of memory loss, deteriorating motor functions, personality shifts, support-group and daycare experiences, and drug trials, Alterra chronicles his transformation from husband to caregiver after his wife's diagnosis.More than a chronology of one family's experience of Alzheimer's disease, The Caregiver is an intelligent, beautifully reflective testimony to how family members turned caregivers become the ultimate advocates for their loved ones in the face of a disease with no cure.

  • Cognitive Limitations in Aging and Psychopathology

    Cognitive Limitations in Aging and Psychopathology

    Karton Kapak
    Examining the major progress made in recent psychological science in understanding the cognitive control of thought, emotion, and behavior, this book reveals what happens when that control is diminished as a result of aging, depression, developmental disabilities, or psychopathology. Each chapter reports the most recent research by a leading researcher on the international stage. Topics include the effects on thought, emotion, and behavior by limitations in working memory, cognitive control, attention, inhibition, and reasoning processes. The explicit objective of the volume is to facilitate inter-disciplinary research and training.

  • Human Development and Political Violence

    Human Development and Political Violence

    Karton Kapak
    Human Development and Political Violence presents an innovative approach to research and practice with young people growing up in the context of political violence. Based on developmental theory, this book explains and illustrates how children and youth interact with environments defined by war, armed conflict, and the aftermath involving displacement, poverty, political instability, and personal loss. The case study for this inquiry was a research workshop in four countries of the former Yugoslavia, where youth aged 12 to 27 participated in activities designed to promote their development. The theory-based Dynamic Story-Telling by Youth workshop engaged participants as social historians and critics sharing their experiences via narratives, evaluations of society, letters to public officials, debates, and collaborative inquiries. Analyses of these youth perspectives augment archival materials and researcher field notes to offer insights about developmental strategies for dealing with the threats and opportunities of war and major political change.
