This book provides an introduction to the assessment of psychological issues in the context of coaching. Coaches need to be able to recognise mental health problems in their clients, enabling them to make an informed decision about whether coaching is appropriate. This book covers legal, ethical and practical considerations guiding the reader through definition and management of more common mental health problems. The book is divided into 3 sections. Part I, Working on the Boundary, starts by exploring the distinction between normal and abnormal behaviour. In Part II, What’s Being Said?, fictional case studies are described, which cover a range of possible mental health issues from mild depression and anxiety, through to psychoses and potentially life-threatening problems. Part III, Categories of Mental Illness, guides the reader through the definition and management of the more common mental health problems. This guide to identifying mental illness may be of interest to coaches and other related professionals, whatever their level of experience.

La belle indifférence in conversion symptoms and hysteria: systematic review

Authors:
STONE Jon, et al
Journal article citation:
British Journal of Psychiatry, 188(3), March 2006, pp.204-209.
Publisher:
Royal College of Psychiatrists

La belle indifférence refers to an apparent lack of concern shown by some patients towards their symptoms. It is often regarded as typical of conversion symptoms/hysteria. This review aims to determine the frequency of la belle indifférence in studies of patients with conversion symptoms/hysteria and to determine whether it discriminates between conversion symptoms and symptoms attributable to organic disease. A systematic review of all studies published since 1965 that have reported rates of la belle indifférence in patients with conversion symptoms and/or patients with organic disease. A total of 11 studies were eligible for inclusion. The median frequency of la belle indifférence was 21% in 356 patients with conversion symptoms, and 29% in 157 patients with organic disease. The available evidence does not support the use of la belle indifférence to discriminate between conversion symptoms and symptoms of organic disease. The quality of the published studies is poor, with a lack of operational definitions and masked ratings. La belle indifférence should be abandoned as a clinical sign until both its definition and its utility have been clarified.
