Mindfulness and Character Strengths
Looking for the latest research and practices on character strengths and mindfulness? Curious about how character strengths can supercharge your mindfulness practice? Or how mindfulness can help you deploy your best qualities? Look no further - the answers are in this book! At the core of this hands-on resource for psychologists and other practitioners, including educators, coaches, and consultants, is Mindfulness-Based Strengths Practice (MBSP), the first structured program to combine mindfulness with the character strengths laid out in the VIA Institute's classification developed by Drs. Martin E. P. Seligman and Christopher Peterson. This 8-session program systematically boosts awareness and application of character strengths, helping people flourish and lead more fulfilling lives. The author's vast experience working with both mindfulness and character strengths is revealed in his sensitive and clear presentation of the conceptual, practical, and scientific elements of this unique combined approach. It is not only those who are new to mindfulness or to character strengths who will appreciate the detailed primers on these topics in the first section of the book. And the deep discussions about the integration of mindfulness and character strengths in the second section will benefit not just intermediate and advanced practitioners. The third section then leads readers step-by-step through each of the 8 MBSP sessions, including details of session structure and content, suggested homework, 30 practical handouts, as well as inspiring quotes and stories and useful practitioner tips. An additional chapter discusses the adaption of MBSP to different settings and populations (e.g., business, education, individuals, couples). The mindfulness and character strengths meditations on the accompanying CD support growth and development. This highly accessible book, while primarily conceived for psychologists, educators, coaches, and consultants, is suitable for anyone who is interested in living a flourishing life.
Wörterbuch der Psychologie und Psychiatrie 1. Englisch - Deutsch Haas, R: Wtb. Psychologie 1/Engl.-Dt.
Das zweibändige Wörterbuch der Psychologie und Psychiatrie (Englisch/Deutsch, Deutsch/Englisch) ist als einzigartige Sammlung von Fachtermini mittlerweile zu einem unverzichtbaren Hilfsmittel für Wissenschaftler, Praktiker und Studenten sowie für Dolmetscher und Übersetzer geworden. Für die nun vorliegende Neuauflage wurde das Wörterbuch nicht nur vollständig revidiert und aktualisiert, sondern auch deutlich erweitert. So wurde z.B. durch die Berücksichtigung der Nomenklaturen aus ICD-10 und DSM-IV sowie durch das Hinzufügen zahlreicher anderer Einträge der gesamte Wortschatz der Psychologie und Psychiatrie auf den neuesten Stand gebracht. Insgesamt wurde diese Auflage um etwa 4.000 Begriffe ergänzt. Das Wörterbuch umfasst nicht nur zahlreiche Fachtermini aus der klinischen Psychologie und aus der Psychiatrie, sondern auch viele neue Begriffe aus den Bereichen kognitive Neurowissenschaften, biologische Psychologie, Persönlichkeitspsychologie, psychologische Methodenlehre, computergestützte Diagnostik, Internet und Informatik. Veränderungen im Sprachgebrauch sowie die neue deutsche Rechtschreibung werden durchgängig berücksichtigt. Zusätzlich werden in einem Anhang rund 1.000 der geläufigsten Abkürzungen aus den Bereichen Psychologie und Psychiatrie erklärt und übersetzt. Widely used for many years by scientists, practitioners and students, as well as translators, the two-volume English-German / German-English Dictionary of Psychology and Psychiatry is generally regarded as the most exhaustive bilingual compilation of terminology in these fields available. In this brand new edition, the Dictionary has not only been fully revised and updated, but also considerably expanded. For instance, all the terms and vocabulary from the field of psychology and psychiatry have been carefully reviewed and brought up to date by the inclusion of the terminology used in DSM-IV and ICD-10, as well as numerous other entries. Overall, around 4,000 new terms have been added in this edition. The Dictionary thus includes not only words and terms from clinical psychology and psychiatry, but also new terminology from areas such as cognitive neuroscience, biological psychology, personality psychology, methodology, and computer-based assessment, as well of course as relevant terms from fields like computing and the internet. At the same time changes of usage and the new German spelling and orthography have been incorporated throughout. Also included in an appendix are explanations and translations of more than 1,000 of the most common abbreviations used in the fields of psychology and psychiatry.

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. Hani Rashid is one of the founding instructors in the "paperless studio" curriculum at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, a progra

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

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.

It emphasizes the means and methods of assessment, but theories, research, and issues concerning human personality that have influenced psychological assessment are also considered. It is designed primarily for use in a one-semester course on personality assessment at the upper undergraduate or beginning graduate level. In addition to being a textbook, this volume is a useful source book, providing coverage of a wide range of instruments and procedures, a comprehensive glossary, an appendix of test publishers and addresses, an extensive bibliography, and complete indexes of authors, subjects, and tests. These features add to the book's value as a reference source for professional psychologists and researchers in the behavioral sciences. Each of the 13 chapters of the book ends with a summary, a set of exercises and activities, and a list of suggested readings for further study of the topic.

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.
Employer Brand Management

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.
