Recent research on childhood difficulties with the acquisition of basic mathematical skills and successful interventions for children facing such challenges We live in a world that requires us to process enormous amounts of numerical Information as part of everyday activities such as operating technical devices, estimating or calculating financial gains or costs, and time management, to name just a few examples. A lack of numerical fluency can therefore strongly impact individuals' lives, work, health, and finances. One reason for low numeracy is developmental dyscalculia, a specific learning disorder that profoundly impairs the acquisition of basic arithmetic skills. Although the consequences of this are at least as detrimental as those of dyslexia, there is less awareness of developmental dyscalculia in the general Population and it has long been an underresearched neurodevelopmental disorder. This volume aims to further our understanding of developmental dyscalculia and measures that might help to redress it. In addition to recent research findings highlighting the importance of working memory facets in developmental dyscalculia and investigating the IQ-achievement discrepancy criterion in defining the disorder, a metaanalysis on the effectiveness of interventions for children with mathematical difficulties provides new directions for how affected children can best be helped.

New Directions in Multinomial Modeling
This monograph provides an overview of recent developments in and new applications for multinomial processing tree (MPT) modeling in cognitive psychology and related fields. Multinomial models are a class of stochastic models tailored to specific research paradigms that allow the measurement of latent cognitive processes underlying observed responses. An introductory review and literature survey in this monograph outlines the family of MPT models, the typical steps in MPT model analyses, the use of MPT models in cognitive psychology, statistical considerations, and computer programs for MPT modeling. Original research articles then present novel MPT modeling approaches in different fields, including episodic memory, binary choice models and "guessing", and word identification in early reading. Discussions of matters such as cognitive psychometrics and ongoing developments of MPT modeling throughout the contributions clearly demonstrate how active this field of research is and the wide range of applications of multinomial modeling.

Professional Sexual Misconduct in Institutions
Essential reading about a notoriously difficult problem: how abusive professionals manipulate their clients and what we as organizations and individuals can do about it. Professional sexual misconduct (PSM) is a problem that is notoriously difficult to address and that can be a minefield for all concerned - for victims, for the institutions where it takes place -, and also because outstanding and supposedly responsible members of society may be accused of abuse. Here, Werner Tschan, one of the world's leading experts in dealing with PSM, outlines an up-to-date approach to PSM and professional disruptive behaviors. He describes practical ways to prevent PSM, as well as effective treatments for victims and to rehabilitate offenders on those accused. Using examples from real-life cases from around the world, he also discusses how PSM is a societal problem and what we can do to stop it. Recent headline cases involving a variety of organizations - medical, media, church, schools, sport, industry - show that institutions can be ideal environments for PSM, and so great emphasis is placed in this volume on preventive measures that we can and must take at an institutional level. With clear, jargon-free writing this book is essential reading for all professionals interested in preventing and dealing with PSM, as well as of interest to victims and their families.

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.

Nicotine and Tobacco Dependence
This volume in the series Advances in Psychotherapy - Evidence-Based Practice provides health care providers with practical and evidence-based guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of nicotine and tobacco dependence. Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death in the world, and it is the only legally available consumer product that kills people when used entirely as intended.

This book aims to increase medical, mental health, and dental practitioners' access to empirically supported interventions for nicotine and tobacco dependence, with the hope that these methods will be incorporated into routine clinical practice. The book is both a compact "how-to" reference for clinicians and an ideal educational resource for students and for practice-oriented continuing education. The volume includes tables, boxed clinical pearls, and clinical vignettes, and the appendix includes clinical tools, patient handouts, and links to the top recommended websites for the download of additional patient materials.
An Introduction to Money Laundering Deterrence Cox, D: Introduction to Money Laundering Deterrence
Every criminal act anywhere that involves obtaining money illegally produces funds which need to be laundered. The IMF estimates that 2-5% of global GDP ($590bn and $1.5 trillion) is laundered every year - $590bn is the equivalent of Spain's yearly output. Globally, regulations have come in which affect certain businesses, especially banks and other financial institutions. These businesses have been required to put in place specific arrangements to prevent and detect money laundering and the criminal activity that underlies it. As money launderers have resorted to more sophisticated ways of disguising the source of their funds, so employees have to be ever more aware of what they are dealing with, and how to deal with it. * At present books on money laundering deterrence tend to focus on the detailed regulations and therefore do not provide much in the form of practical advice and guidance. The books also tend to look at money laundering regulation from a single perspective - say that of the UK. * Legislation requires firms to provide all relevant employees with adequate training on that legislation, and to recognise and deal appropriately with transactions where money laundering is suspected. * This book will look at a series of types of money laundering, explain how they are used and what controls, if any, could be used by an institution to protect itself. * What should make a banker suspicious, how would suspicion appear to a court or regulator, and what will the impact be on controls and reputational risk.

The quality of experimental studies substantially depends on their design, which needs to be specified before data collection. The demand for optimal designs in psychological research and related fields has grown in recent years, not least due to complex and expensive methods such as neuroimaging techniques becoming standard procedures, which has increased the need to control the time and cost involved. Optimal design is also extremely valuable for large-scale assessments and adaptive testing. Beyond that, practically every psychological study may benefit from optimal design, as the reduction of experimental effort often amounts to 20-40%. Still, textbooks on experimental design usually do not cover optimal design, the existing literature on optimal design is often written rather technically and requires profound statistical knowledge, and software packages frequently used in psychology provide few opportunities for generating optimal designs. This volume provides an introduction to optimal design and an overview on new developments and applications of optimal design to several important topics in psychology, including multilevel analysis, event history analysis, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies, and optimal test assembly. All contributions in this compilation have been written with express attention to high readability. They only presuppose statistical knowledge as typically provided by the BSc and MSc study of psychology.

The Difficult Case in Head and Neck Cancer Surgery Donald, P: Difficult Case in Head and Neck Cancer
Thieme Publishers New York im Thieme Verlag 2010
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.

American artist Ed Ruscha began making prints and drawings consisting of one word or phrase in the late 1950s and has continued to explore the language-based imagery that has become a hallmark of his work.

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.

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
