Purchase includes free access to book updates online and a free trial membership in the publisher’s book club where you can select from more than a million books without charge. Excerpt: The attack on Chaves, Portugal, which occurred on July 8, 1912, was a military action performed by supporters of the monarchy of Portugal in opposition to the Portuguese First Republic, which had been proclaimed two years prior. The attack was led by Henrique Paiva Couceiro, who had campaigned in Africa and who had become the leader of the royalists. The royalists had been discreetly armed by the Spanish king, Alfonso XIII, and had concentrated their forces in Galicia. The attack ended with a defeat for the royalist forces. Couceiro had undertaken a first incursion in 1911 with about 1,000 men, who had formed in groups of 60-70 men. They had left the town of Verín, 12 kilometers from the northern border with Spain, and had marched towards the border. Most of the men were from the region of Trás-os-Montes and were from a diverse array of social classes and skills. There were more than 100 priests in the group. In terms of military equipment, there were only 400 ancient rifles, a few Winchester rifles, and Mauser Pocket Pistols adapted to rifles, to which were added a score of automatic pistols, daggers, and swords. The 1,000 men had crossed the border after a long march in the mountainous region between Bragança and Vinhais, near the present-day Montesinhos National Park. The republican garrison in Bragança had waited for an attack that never came. This is because the royalists had changed their plans and now marched on Vinhais, which had a smaller garrison of men -only eighty infantry, cavalry and border guards. These forces from Vinhais had left the small town and had concentrated on a hill nearby. Negotiations were begun but the military commander of Vinhais refused to join or to surrender. He gave Paiva Couceiro two hours to abandon Portug…

 A Brief Introduction to Using an Evidence-Based Humanistic Solution Focused Approach to Working with Parents to Reduce Anti-Social Behaviour & Youth Offending


A Brief Introduction to Using an Evidence-Based Humanistic Solution Focused Approach to Working with Parents to Reduce Anti-Social Behaviour & Youth Offending


$3.73


This short eBook is a brief introduction to the work carried out by the author into the use of a Humanistic Solution Focused Approach to supporting parents with the aim of reducing youth offending and anti-social behaviour. This eBook also introduces an overview of the evidence gathered by the author based on 321 parents offered support, looking at the impact this approach had on reducing youth crime. To explore and introduce this approach a case study will be used to give the reader an idea of what the usual outcome session is like, and what transpires to help the parent and family from the first telephone contact through the initial face to face contact, through the sessions that take place and finally back to the changes that occur due to the support received. This eBook is primarily aimed at those working in social work settings or within family therapy. This could include family therapists, parenting support advisors, family link workers, family outreach workers, family resource team workers, youth offending service workers that specialise in parenting support or that have an interest in supporting parents, or family intervention project workers. It can also be useful for trainee social workers that will be specialising in working with children and families or trained social workers that want to add new ideas to their toolbox of skills or even children and family centre staff or those that run parenting or family courses. At this time in the UK supporting parents to reduce and prevent youth anti-social behaviour and youth crime is a hot topic. There is an increasing need to offer parenting courses and groups and one to one support to parents of children and young people that are either already ‘young offenders’ or are ‘at risk’ of becoming young offenders. To get funding the expectation is that support offered has an evidence-base. With an evidence-base it is possible to say with some confidence what outcomes are likely to be achieved. So if a proposal for funding

Groups of chapters are contextualized by Part activities, which include setting context for reading, written assessment prompts, debate suggestions, ethics discussion prompts, projects, and activities. Also, each Part contains a cooperative learning activity developed for A History of US by Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Social Organization of Schools.
