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


$67.73


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.

Clinical Skills: The Essence of Caring


Clinical Skills: The Essence of Caring


$61.36


""An excellent foundation text for first year pre-registration nurses. The accompanying DVD encourages application of the theory and helps consolidate learning." Janine Lee, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK" ""This book provides an excellent alternative to other Clinical Skills books. The most obvious and most useful difference is the addition of a CD Rom. The book itself is clearly laid out from the beginning, with the table of contents detailing all the essential areas of nursing that are often forgotten. It is often assumed that nursing students already know the basics so the inclusion of how to bed bath a patient or how to feed a patient was welcomed. While primarily aimed at those following the common foundation program (1st year) it has also been of great use to myself during my 3rd year." Jackie Sheridan, Student Nurse, Glasgow Caledonian University, UK" ""I found this book useful for a backup from clinical skills sessions to refresh my mind. It uses simple easy understandable language with key ideas highlighted and uses pictures and diagrams where necessary. I found the cd-rom invaluable as it uses step to step guides of skills used and although we all learn them in skills sessions we sometimes forget the gold standard way as we learn to cut corners. It is easy to use and well designed … It covers all branches of nursing with case studies to back up understanding and provide real-life examples of using skills in practice." Becky Gray, Student Nurse, University of Worcester, UK" ""I was very impressed by this textbook. It reads very well, is easy to follow and is suitable for students within the common foundation programme. Allowing these students to see alternative aspects of other branches which they may not have seen within practice is valuable and the DVD material naturally adds to the learning and helps to show theory within practice." Conleth Kelly, Lecturer in The Faculty of Health and Social Care, The University of Chester, UK" ""This is an impressively comprehensive guide to clinical skills drawing from the expertise and real life experiences of a variety of contributors with health and social care backgrounds … The edge to the book that I feel raises it above other clinical skills guides, is the free interactive DVD. Designed to be used at certain points during the reading of the book, it provides the reader/viewer with extensive further reading and resources … Additionally, and perhaps most usefully, it provides the student with video clips of the clinical skills being performed, which show how the best evidence based methods can easily be applied in practice."

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.

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.

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.

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

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

 Deathworld - The Original Classic Edition


Deathworld – The Original Classic Edition


$7.95


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. A
