Cultural Variation in Psychopathology
Improving mental health care through culturally sensitive research and practice Culturally sensitive practice is a vital component of effective mental health care in our increasingly diverse societies: Mental illnesses vary in prevalence between cultural and ethnic groups, as do the meanings attached to them and people's responses to them. The important implications of this interplay between culture and psychopathology for diagnosis and treatment are scrutinized and elucidated in this comprehensive and well-organized book, which uniquely looks at a range of practical examples involving various ethnic minority populations in North America and Europe. Leading experts from around the world have integrated divergent topics into a systematic and clinically relevant volume. Cultural Variations in Psychopathology: From Research to Practice is an important resource for researchers and in particular for any mental health professional who works with ethnically diverse communities.

Handbook of Positive Supervision for Supervisors, Facilitators, and Peer Groups Bannink, F: Handbook of Positive Supervision
This clearly written, practical handbook describes an innovative and successful approach to individual, group, and peer supervision that is suitable for use in any environment (clinical, corporate, educational, health, governmental, community): positive supervision. Positive supervision focuses on what actually works instead of on problems and on supervisees' strengths rather than on their deficits. The task of supervisors using this approach is - unlike the more traditional problemsolving - to create solutions with their supervisees and to teach them to apply the same approach when working with their own clients. Essential reading for all supervisors, this book introduces a new form of supervision, based on positive psychology and solution-focused brief therapy, that is shorter, more positive and hopeful, and more cost-effective than traditional methods.
A provocative look at research and practice in suicide prevention - a "must read" for all concerned. This provocative and erudite book highlights theoretical and methodological challenges that have plagued and continue to plague the field of suicidology. The basic premise is that recent research has not served to advance our understanding of suicidal behavior, but tends to repeat older research, often apparently without awareness that we are often merely "reinventing the wheel". As the authors maintain: "Very little of consequence has appeared in suicidology for many years - no new theory and no ground-breaking research." The book discusses the contributions that each of the major disciplines have made to suicidology (is there a misplaced devotion to Durkheim's 100-year-old theories?), and provide an overview of research and theories in some typical areas. Drawing from this, specific recommendations as to what researchers and theorists can do in the future to advance our understanding of suicide and suicide prevention are offered. It is hoped that these recommendations will stimulate research and theorizing so that our understanding of suicide will progress.

Follower-Centric Approaches to Leadership
New research on followers as fundamental participants in the development, impact, and maintenance of leadership processes The vast majority of studies of leadership are cross-sectional comparisons of leadership styles and followers' perceptions of leaders' styles; however, within the last two decades scholars have begun to study the other side of the proverbial coin, focusing on followers' styles and the processes of followership. The studies in this volume examine what it means to "reverse the lens" in leadership research by studying how followers perceive and enact their own roles in the co-production of leadership. The contributions highlight new research on followers' needs, motivations, and attributions as critical aspects of the leadership relationship. They present new theories and perspectives on the study of leadership and followership as well as potential directions for further research. The followercentric approach to leadership covers questions such as: . How do followers perceive followership, i.e., construct and enact their roles in relation to leaders? . What does it mean to be labelled a follower? . How do individual characteristics and qualities of followers influence the development of leaders? . What roles do followers' needs, values, wants, and preferences play in their tolerance or affinity for certain leadership styles? . What types of leadership help in developing effective followership and what types of followership help in developing effective leadership?

An indispensable guide to making the transition to dual IFRS/GAAP financial reporting U.S. financial reporting will undergo an unprecedented level of change within the next several years.

The Significance of Grace in the Letters of Paul
To determine the importance and function of the concept of grace in the letters of Paul, this book examines «grace texts» that relate to entrance into and continuing existence as a member of the Christian community. Although the focus is not on texts that deal with the relation of the church to Torah, this study points toward answers to questions about Paul's views of the role of grace in relation to the Jewish law. The picture that emerges is one of grace as a vital theme for Paul. This is not simply because grace is a useful part of his arsenal in the battle against reliance on «works of the law,» but because it is a vital part of the past, present, and future life of the believer.

Asymptote, an award-winning New York City -- based architectural firm, expands the boundaries of traditional architectural practice with work that ranges from buildings and urban design to computer-generated environments. Recognized internationally as both leading-edge architects and virtual-reality artists as well as sought-after critics and teachers, Asymptote partners Lise Anne Couture and Hani Rashid have emphasized research into cultural trends and technological influences as the core of their practice. The firm has completed or is overseeing projects around the world, with commissions as diverse as a trading floor for the New York Stock Exchange; a multimedia research park in Kyoto, Japan; a modular furniture system for the Knoll furniture company; a music theater in Graz, Austria; and a new center for art and technology for the Guggenheim Museum in SoHo, New York. Designed and written by the partners, Asymptote is the first book to fully document their "real world" (as opposed to virtual) projects.In mathematical terms, the word "asymptote" is defined as a line that a given curve gets closer and closer to, but never touches, as it gets further from the origin towards infinity. In architectural terms, Asymptote is the Manhattan-based architectural design and research practice established by Lise Anne Couture and Hani Rashid in 1989.Rashid and Couture's work is intriguing because it draws inspiration from a wide range of sources not traditionally associated with architecture -- among them the design of airline interiors, sporting equipment, and organic systems like seashells and honeycombs; and various means of communicating and disseminating information. Their projects areconcerned as much with light, speed, and traversing virtual boundaries as with "real-world" geometries and building systems.

A high proportion of couples in western industrialized countries are unable to have children, and in many cases these couples need psychosocial support. This book describes a range of counseling and therapy approaches that can be used in a variety of circumstances. The approaches described here provide concrete assistance and advice on psychosocial interventions for all professionals who are active in reproductive medicine, fertility treatment, and counseling or therapy for couples. The book introduces the most recent knowledge about psychosomatic treatment of fertility disorders, and describes assessment methods that can be used in everyday practice by those providing both medical treatment and counseling for fertility disorders. On the basis of numerous case examples, various different approaches to counseling and therapy are described, including, for example, specific approaches that can be taken by primary care or family physicians, or how to approach the problems in couples with different cultural backgrounds. A manual for gynecologists in the final chapter provides concrete advice and guidelines for a holistic, psychosomatic course of treatment for childless couples.

Fruits is a collection of Tokyo street fashion portraits from Japan's premier street fanzine of the same name. 'Fruits' was established in 1994, by photographer Shoichi Aoki, initially as a project to document the growing explosion in street fashion within the suburbs of Tokyo. Over the last five years, the magazine has grown to cult status and is now avidly followed by thousands of Japanese teenagers who also use the magazine as an opportunity to check out the latest styles and trends. The average age of the kids featured in the magazine is between 12 and 18, and the clothes that they wear are a mixture of high fashion -- Vivienne Westwood is a keen favourite -- and home-made ensembles which when combined create a novel, if not hysterical, effect.This extensive collection of portraits represents a unique documentation of the changing face of street fashion throughout the last decade. Colourful, fascinating and funny, this is the first time these cult images have been published outside Japan. Fruits will delight followers of fashion and youth culture.

Richard Mosley has been involved in brand strategy development and implementation for nearly twenty years, including eight years with WPP's marketing consultancy Added Value where he led the internal marketing practice. Both authors share a belief in the need for marketing and HR to work together more effectively, especially in businesses which rely on people to deliver the customer brand experience. People in Business's recent clients include BP, British Airways, Hiscox, John Lewis, Man Investments and Unilever.

Improving Memory and Study Skills Herrmann, D: Improving Memory
This text is designed to serve as a primary text for teaching the science of studying to university and other students. Divided into five main sections, 13 chapters deal with: (1) Fundamentals, including scientific findings concerning learning and studying, and the physiological and psychological basis of memory; (2) Physical and emotional state when studying/taking exams; (3) How best to store and remember information; (4) Using the environment and things around us to help; (5) Integrating the above. Improving Memory and Study Skills is based on the latest research, including that of the authors, on how students study, learn, and remember. The authors collectively have over 100 years of experience in teaching and research about how students can learn more efficiently. This text presents both the rationale and the methods that have led to a new and successful multimodal approach to developing memory and study skills. Not only is the book full of practical recommendations for both teaching and learning these skills. In addition, the scientific reasons for the suggested procedures are clearly laid out, and the explanations in turn are grounded in practical examples. Each of the 13 chapters is rounded off by a concise summary of the most salient points, and the book itself is completed by a comprehensive glossary, and full author and subject indexes.

Suicide and Euthanasia in Older Adults
Suicide among older people is a significant problem, but one that has tended to be neglected in recent years. And in an age where populations and cultures are becoming increasingly mixed due to migration and globalization, it is vital that lessons concerning suicide and euthanasia be learned from different countries. This book provides help by bringing together a unique range of perspectives on aging, suicide, and euthanasia from different cultures and countries around the world. In addition to analytical overviews of the relationship between socio-economic or psychological factors and suicidal behavior, differences between younger and older suicides, family factors, and physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia, contributions by leading authorities from 10 different regions each contain a description of suicide in old age, as well as discussions of views concerning the role of the elderly in that culture and the issue of euthanasia/assisted suicide, especially in the terminally ill. This book is of interest not just for suicidologists but also for psychiatrists, psychologists, sociologists, ethicists, thanatologists, geriatricians, psychogeriatricians and psychogerontologists. A remarkable book, dealing with vital but often neglected topics: . Suicide in the elderly . Euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide . Cultural aspects
ICD-10 /DSM-IV Crosswalks
The clearly laid-out tables in this book allow quick comparisons to be made between the two major classifications of mental disorders, DSM-IV (including the latest TR version) and ICD-10. The cross-walks (in both directions) detail all the significant differences between the two systems, thus helping both clinicians and researchers avoid having to resort to complicated and time-consuming comparisons between the two manuals.
Personality Assessment. Methods and Practices
This highly regarded book, now in its third, fully revised edition, is a survey of concepts, methods, procedures, and materials concerning the assessment of personality.
