Relationship Skills in Social Work


Relationship Skills in Social Work


$35.63


This book considers the place of relationships in current practice and explores the ways in which social workers can use relationship skills to achieve the best possible outcomes for their clients. The book also offers a unique discussion of the social worker’s relationship with him or herself, arguing that self-awareness is as essential to good practice as an emotional understanding of the other. In doing so, the book promotes a new model for relationship-based social work, which emphasizes the importance of both the inter- and intrapersonal. Using reflective exercises and case studies, the book encourages students to relate the tools they have learnt to practice scenarios from the real world, and is essential reading for all qualifying social work students.

Social Behavior and Skills in Children


Social Behavior and Skills in Children


$68.46


That children are capable of pathology-not only such conditions as ADHD and learning disabilities, but also such "adult" disorders as anxiety and depression-stands as a defining moment in psychology’s recent history. Within this recognition is the understanding that the social skills deficits that accompany these disorders must be targeted for assessment and treatment to ensure optimal functioning in school, with peers, and in later transitions to puberty and adulthood. Social Behavior and Skills in Children cuts across disciplinary lines to clarify the scope of assessment options and interventions for a wide range of disorders. A panel of leading scholars reviews current research, discusses social deficits unique to specific disorders, and identifies evidence-based best practices in one authoritative, approachable reference. This volume: Discusses theoretical models of social skills as they relate to assessment and treatment. Analyzes the etiology of social behavior problems in children and the relation between these problems and psychopathology. Reviews 48 norm-referenced measures of social skills in children. Examines the range of evidence-based social skills interventions. Addresses challenging behaviors, such as aggression and self-injury. Focuses on specific conditions, including developmental disabilities, conduct disorders, ADHD, chronic medical illness, depression, anxiety, and severe psychopathology. Social Behavior and Skills in Children is an essential reference for university libraries as well as a must-have volume for researchers, graduate students, and clinicians in child, and school psychology, special education, and other related fields.

Counselling Skills in Palliative Care


Counselling Skills in Palliative Care


$42.33


"The health care professional working in a palliative care setting may be familiar with a professional counsellor working as a member of the care team. They may not always recognise the empowering effect that the use of empathy and counselling skills can have in their own encounters with patients and families. This book will give them the insight they need, the encouragement to apply skills, and the satisfaction that can come from the ‘emotional holding’ of distress, as well as the practical interventions that are a familiar part of clinical care." – Margaret Potter, Freelance Lecturer/Counsellor, Bereavement Studies "This is a very empowering book. With its emphasis on all health care professionals having an important role in listening, accepting and eliciting the feelings and fears of patients as they face the end of life. After reading this book, I felt reassured to see some of the ways that I handle these difficult issues illustrated, and stimulated to reflect on alternative ways that might be of help in the future. The text centres around a series of carefully drafted vignettes, which are then skillfully used in the subsequent text to illustrate issues in a grounded and relevant way" – Dr Stephen Barclay, General Practitioner, Honorary Consultant in Palliative Medicine, Health Services Research Training Fellow, University of Cambridge This book is for people working in palliative care, helping patients and families to manage and live with chronic and progressive illnesses where treatment is no longer aimed at a cure. Palliative care professionals are encouraged to work holistically, viewing themselves and their relationships with patients as significant therapeutic resources in their own right. The authors argue that sensitive counselling skills need to be used effectively by all palliative workers, not just by counsellors. The book discusses the place of counselling skills using an integrative biopsychosocial model of family systems medicine, taking into account interactions between family life cycles, social conceptions of illness and treatment, the psychosocial typology of particular diseases, and family/professional belief systems. Each chapter considers counselling skills in relation to the overall care system (including the professional team and the family), not just the patient with the disease. Ideas are explored through clinical vignettes of common scenarios in palliative care.

“This is a fabulous Book.I wish I’d had it twenty years ago. How much hassle I could have avoided.The words are informed, empirical and in places profound.This is the ‘door’ bible for a new age.Highly recommended.”Geoff Thompson – Author of Dead or Alive: The Choice is Yours and veteran ex-Door Man”Darren’s book is a must read for anyone either working the doors or considering working the doors. It shows quite clearly that using violence need not be an option in almost every single violent or aggressive situation; there is, instead, a wealth of other techniques and options available to the street-wise doorman, or woman. If you want to survive in the industry, and go home happy after work each and every night, then don’t work the doors without reading this little book.”Robin Barratt, author, writer and former old-school doormanSo you’re a black belt, bodybuilder and think you have all the skills it takes to be a bouncer, huh?Well you may make a great ‘bouncer’, but if you want to become a professional ‘crowd controller’ who can handle situations effortlessly and with as little violence as possible then you are intelligent enough to recognize the importance of mastering the techniques in this book.With the nightlife industry becoming so heavily regulated and more and more venues taking a hard line on their ‘no hit’ policies, the nightlife security industry has dramatically changed since the old days of gorilla bouncers throwing people into trash bins, and therefore by necessity new skills have evolved.The author has over a decade of experience in the security industry and set out on a quest to codify the most workable techniques in nightlife security and educate others on their use to handle situations effectively, but with as little violence as possible. The author credits his background as a lawyer with many grueling years of experience in dispute resolution as his influence for many of the techniques outlined in this book which require a subtle, yet highly effectiv

A Bad Seed

My mother came from a large family, and she loved to tell me about all the things she got into with her brothers and sisters.  When she began to lose her short-term memory, she could still recall in vivid detail all of the stories she had told me as I was growing up.  She knew that I enjoyed writing, and she asked me if I would like to come stay with her once and write down all the things she could remember.  What a priceless gift! This collection of short stories was inspired by her insight and sense of humor.  I also drew inspiration from observations I made as a child and, later, as an adult living in rural areas throughout the South and Midwest. The stories in my collection deal with the struggles and triumphs of people from other periods of time, some far in the past, others close enough that we baby-boomers can remember.  And yet, regardless of how far separated we are from these times, we still share the same emotions.  Most of us can relate to one or more of these: the contrition in the heart of the young teacher who punished her student too severely in A Bad Seed, the anguish of the soldier who made a frightening and controversial decision in Grandpa Kelly Never Played Soldier; the agony of a young man over the abortion of his child in A Matter of Life or the decision of a middle-aged single woman to give hers up for adoption in Presented In Honor; the difficulty of dealing with grief in Pretendin’ Dont Make It So and Cleaning Mamas Grave; the devastation of a no-win situation in Mollies Victory; and the sometimes sensitive, sometimes hilarious insecurities of childhood in Emma’s Turn, Raising Up Jesus, and A Cultural Experience.  The way of life depicted here has mostly disappeared.  Even very isolated areas have access to satellite television and the Internet these days.  In many ways, this is wonderful.  Advances in medical care and psychological counseling can be shared, social skills can be honed, modern entertainment is available anywhere at the to

A Change of Career


$4.95


I was always the good girl, devoting myself to my studies. It got me a Harvard Law degree, and a job with one of New York’s more prestigious law firms. And then one day I realized that I had no life to speak of, had never had one, and wasn’t going to have one for many years to come. With a high student loan, a job which had my nose buried in books for 12 hours a day, and no social life to speak of, I was looking at a dozen years before my career paid out. And that would leave me a middle aged woman who’d never done anything exciting or wild or crazy. And so, inspired by fate, and an unusual client, I began to branch out and learn new skills, and shifted into another career path. This one had a lot more fun, a lot more thrills and excitement, and paid a lot better. The business card might say ‘Legal Consultant’ but my new career was that of a high priced call girl.

 A Make Believe World


A Make Believe World


$0.99


As I continued to get older and go through school the social stuff would become more difficult. It seemed like kids were becoming more and more advanced, learning more skills, and leaving me behind. If it had not been for a coping mechanism that I picked up from my special interest that developed from my ability to escape into imagination and create a make believe world, I don’t think I would have made it through school. School was difficult, painful, and emotionally draining. Thankfully I had the trombone to keep me going.As I entered my freshman year I realized that I had no friends. I started band camp that year desperately wanting to make some new acquaintances. I was hoping high school would be a little different than middle school and that maybe it would be easier to develop these friendships that I had longed for. But I would find out that wasn’t the case. By the time Christmas came my freshman year I had been rejected over and over again and just wanted to leave high school. I never really talked to anyone much about the way I was feeling. I held it in because I didn’t think other people would understand and I was afraid they would think I was weird.I found a friend in my trombone. When I signed up for band in the sixth grade I had no idea that I would end up being in band for so long or using it as a possible major in college and becoming a professional. This is something that happened due to my special interest and the make believe world developing in my mind.While other kids were out hanging out on Friday and Saturday nights, I was at home practicing a solo or playing a lick from a piece of music. I wanted to be good at the trombone and I always was motivated to be the best. I wanted to be section leader and I practiced a lot to ensure that was always the case. I think I wanted to be good at band so desperately because I hadn’t felt a lot of accomplishment in other areas of my life. This ability to play music and be the best at it gave me a sense of accom

Common Core. NCLB. Differentiation. A through G. Race To The Top. Despite all this, we continue to push kids through school and out the other end with little to show for our time, effort, and the public’s money. Meanwhile, the Achievement gap, the Economic Gap widens, and kids arrive at the commencement stage without basic skills to obtain and hold employment. All Thumbs; Feeding the Achievement Gap, is an educator’s analysis of how and why we have eliminated vocational and technical education in public secondary schools, and what this has done to skew education into a single track where every kid is made to prepare themselves for obtaining a university degree, no matter their interest or capability. This skewed disposition on the part of educators, a bias toward one style of education, has in turn created a form of hubris where we (educators) dictate what is to be learned, when and how, without an understanding of the types of skills needed to promote continuity in the diverse job world. This bias is fuelled by a number of things:* Vocational education is viewed as the dumping ground for kids of minority and low socioeconomic status.* Technical and vocational education are perceived as atavistic; a throwback to an age superseded by the progress of technological evolution.* The shift toward digital and Cloud-based learning at the expense of working with realia.* Attempting to squeeze more education into a time frame incapable of stretching to fit the accoutrements.* Our belief as educators that technical and vocational skills are learned rote, leaving students stranded with lower-order thinking/problem-solving skills while the world is moving toward the need for higher order cognitive skills.* The move to skew the secondary school coursework structure that filters out students who have differing skills, who desire different kinds of educational options.* Our attempts as educators to provoke culture change, producing a more refined disposition in our students that mo

 Anything You Can Do, I Can Too


Anything You Can Do, I Can Too


$0.99


We’ve all heard of the song “Anything You Can Do, I can do Better.” This is something that I have taken with me own life and adapted it into the way I approach social interaction and things dealing with Asperger’s Syndrome.I believe that all children have the ability to learn, feel, love, and connect with other children. Some will be better at it than others. Some people have made autism out to be this horrible thing and blown it way out of proportion. The truth is, autism is no different than anything else in life.For example, look at two people who play basketball. Let’s compare Michael Jordan to myself in that regard. I played basketball in elementary school and now I shoot hoops for fun every now and then. MJ is a professional and played for the Chicago Bulls. Michael Jordan is the greatest player to ever play in the National Basketball Association. If he and I were to play one on one I would most certainly lose. My conclusion is Michael Jordan is a better basketball player than I am. I’m okay with that. Believe it or not, there are some things that I could be better at than he is.This is no different than comparing a neurotypical child to a child on the autism spectrum. While one might excel and have great social skills, the other might go onto become an engineer or invent something useful to society. While we all alike in some ways, we are also different in many other ways.You have to remember no matter what that we are all unique. We all have something to contribute to this world. That’s the beauty of life. When you put all of us together we have a great variety of people with different likes and interest. If everyone all liked the same thing there wouldn’t be enough of it to go around for all of us.Always remember some people are going to be better at something than you are; but you are also better at something than they are. Have this attitude about life in general, especially about autism. There are many things that you will learn from your child if you ar

 Boosting Your Self-Esteem Through Imagination


Boosting Your Self-Esteem Through Imagination


$0.99


The mind can be a powerful tool. This can be both good and bad. We are all familiar with the saying “we can be our own worst enemy” and that is true, but the flip side of that is that we can also be our own best supporter and advocate. I’ve been learning about this in my day to day life. The way that mind processes thoughts is an important part of the development of our self-esteem.Just a few short months ago I was dealing with some depression from all of the negative going on in my life. Some of the thoughts that were going through my head on a daily basis were “girls hate me” “why do they hate me?” “People don’t like me because I have Asperger’s Syndrome.”The negative thoughts were overwhelming and it was becoming more difficult to see the positive side of life. I have dealt with this throughout my life as an adult due to the complications of socialization and making friends. I have had many ups and downs and I kept trying to stay positive. The negative days were still present and were interfering with my ability to do the everyday things that an adult needs to do in life to support himself and be productive.It wasn’t until recently when things began to turn around for me. My life has taken on and expanded in areas that I never thought I’d see myself grow in. My social skills set have improved a lot in the past month or two and I am now a lot more content with life. My thoughts are positive thoughts and there are no negative thoughts. If one occurs I have learned how to quickly defeat that negative thought and turn it into a positive one. I do this by behavioural modification. Just like with any behaviour it’s important to modify it instead of taking it away completely. Taking behaviour away completely can lead to many destructive things occurring. It’s important that when dealing with children we see what the behaviour is, and then come up with a plan to modify or change the behaviour.The same is true for thoughts. We want to avoid all of the negative thoughts th

Coaching Myths

Unlike the generations of coaches that have gone before them, today’s coaches are expected not only to teach motor skills to young athletes but to do so in an environment that is conducive to the ethical, emotional, social and physical well-being of each one of them. Each of the 15 chapters of this book presents, and then systematically debunks, the most pervasive, persistent and potentially harmful myths in coaching, including such chestnuts as “play by my rules,” “winning is the ultimate goal” and “there’s no I in ‘team.’” Although the information in every chapter is based on current scientific evidence (and there are numerous source notes), each is written in the everyday language of coaches and covers topics that are of particular interest to coaches, parents, athletic administrators, recreation programming specialists–and even the occasional fan.

 Deathworld - The Original Classic Edition


Deathworld – The Original Classic Edition

Kill or be killed! The trilogy is one of Harrisons best machinegun typewriter books by far. The opening premise of the first novel is that Deathworld is a jungle planet teeming with life that evolves with a speed and ferocity unlike any other planet in the universe. To survive for even a moment on the surface you must be superbly trained and superbly armed and prepared to kill hordes of clever and supremely deadly predators. And then you need to figure out how to get work done in the meanwhile! And obviously, people with the skills needed to survive on Deathworld might find work elsewhere … in sequels perhaps. Terrific non-stop action. Grab this one, its a True Si-Fi Classic. Composed before the PC era of Mr Harrison (when no one dies and all good people, fight for equality and social justice, it concerns the ultimate expression of darwinism on a planatary scale. A race of people whose homeland is literlary evolving to kill them, will of need themselves evolve to become the most leathal race of men in the galaxy.(Ok, so Dune was first!) Sarcasm, wit and action, ballanced with just the right level of homocidal ferver and hair splitting suspence! A true 70s must read! This book is a classic — the main character, Jason dinAlt, is a gambler and a scoundrel, with an ability to influence luck in his favor. Hes recruited to help raise money for the inhabitants of Pyrrus, and has to follow the girl sent to arrange the deal to see the place for himself. I refer to Deathworld and the others in the triology everytime someone asks me to recommend a SF classic. Imagine a planet where the grass has curved, needle sharp tips, you sit on a rock and the lichen tries to get you, all the animals have one thing in common – kill the human invaders. Imagine that to survive you need to attend a pre-school for colonists and your survival skills never extend beyond first grade. This is Deathworld. If you never read another SF, at least read his finest – Deathworld.

“Self-forgetfulness is the reigning temptation of the technological era. This is why we so readily give our assent to the absurd proposition that a computer can add two plus two, despite the obvious fact that it can do nothing of the sort–not if we have in mind anything remotely resembling what we do when we add numbers. In the computer’s case, the mechanics of addition involve no motivation, no consciousness of the task, no mobilization of the will, no metabolic activity, no imagination. And its performance brings neither the satisfaction of accomplishment nor the strengthening of practical skills and cognitive capacities.”In this insightful book, author Steve Talbott, software programmer and technical writer turned researcher and editor for The Nature Institute, challenges us to step back and take an objective look at the technology driving our lives. At a time when 65 percent of American consumers spend more time with their PCs than they do with their significant others, according to a recent study, Talbott illustrates that we’re forgetting one important thing–our Selves, the human spirit from which technology stems.Whether we’re surrendering intimate details to yet another database, eschewing our physical communities for online social networks, or calculating our net worth, we freely give our power over to technology until, he says, “we arrive at a computer’s-eye view of the entire world of industry, commerce, and society at large…an ever more closely woven web of programmed logic.”Digital technology certainly makes us more efficient. But when efficiency is the only goal, we have no way to know whether we’re going in the right or wrong direction. Businesses replace guiding vision with a spreadsheet’s bottom line. Schoolteachers are replaced by the computer’s dataflow. Indigenous peoples give up traditional skills for the dazzle and ease of new gadgets. Even the Pentagon’s zeal to replace “boots on the ground” with technology has led to the mess in Iraq. And

TEACHER, POET, COMPOSER, ENTHUSIAST, AND STORY WRITER”Life is a space in time to be enjoyed” especially when we are in the process of using our own talents to bring to reality our uniqueness and creativity. I believe that each person has the potentiality of a genius hidden inside just waiting to be shown to the world. My experiences with children from infants to those in Grade One, has proven my belief in this Philosophy of Teaching. I have allowed children the freedom to use their talents in my 55 years of teaching in a formal classroom. While fulfi lling the curriculum formulated by the Educational system, I tried to nurture, guide, encourage, praise and enhance the lives of the Little Ones under my tender care. The books that I have long wanted to be in the hearts and minds of the Public is now happening for me. Some of the children I taught way back in 1954 up to the present day have experienced the wonder and fun of learning with others. I too have learned from them. The children created the Spa, and Restaurant with a bit of direction from me. There was no high-powered technology involved. We just enjoyed a wonderful time and learned so many skills, in Reading, Math, Health, Science and Social Attitudes. I have more “Wonders” to share with the world. I am the youngest of a family of l3members, a song composer, and a poet. Enjoy this story and the many other creative enrichments for your life soon to appear in bookstores and on the internet. Being 72 hasn’t stopped me yet and I don’t believe my age will ever be a challenge to me. Anyone who knows me can reassure you of that statement. Be on the look out for the next adventures of the children I have encountered. You’ll enjoy every moment of our imaginings.Peace, Patricia
