Dealing With HIV And AIDS In The Classroom (Paperback): Lesley Wood Dealing With HIV And AIDS In The Classroom (Paperback)
Lesley Wood
R551 R444 Discovery Miles 4 440 Save R107 (19%) Special order

Much has been written about how many parents, children and educators are infected or affected by HIV and AIDS. However, little has been offered in the way of practical, pedagogical and emotional help for teachers dealing with HIV and AIDS in their classrooms. This book is an attempt to help those teachers cope on a day-to-day basis in the classroom.

Dealing With HIV And AIDS In The Classroom was inspired by reflections, comments and photographs provided by real teachers who created a new understanding of what it is like to be a teacher in a world where HIV and AIDS are endemic.

  • A focus on the self-development of the teacher: Teachers have the potential to be change agents and can start to take the lead in shifting attitudes towards HIV and AIDS in the educational context.

  • Practical application guidelines: Each chapter gives concise ideas on how to practically apply the theory/knowledge in the school setting, with particular emphasis on the creative use of limited resources.

  • Simple, straight forward language: Teachers will find the book easy to read.

  • Personal, real-life experiences of teachers, along with their own photographs: Teachers will relate to these experiences, as theirs are probably similar.
The Quest for Sustainable Development (Paperback): William Fox, Enslin van Rooyen The Quest for Sustainable Development (Paperback)

R371 R330 Discovery Miles 3 300 Save R41 (11%) Special order

Sustainable development currently dominates the agenda of government programmes and projects in Africa. The developmental challenges posed by population increases, the prevalence of HIV/Aids and urbanisation trends, inter alia, require government institutions and other development agencies to improve performance and delivery. The implementation of sustainable development depends largely on all stakeholders being involved in the planning and evaluation of respective programmes and projects. Issues relating to entrepreneurship and small business development, policy management, local government integrated development planning, and the role of women, need to be attended to effectively and efficiently. To achieve meaningful sustainable development objectives, entities such as the African Union and initiatives like NEPAD need to coordinate regional and continental development activities. However, a number of imperatives impact on the outcomes of all attempts to achieve sustainable development. In this well-researched, important book, some of the most prominent sustainable development issues are investigated. The chapters were authored by academics who are well-versed in their respective fields.

Introduction to Genetics: A Molecular Approach (Paperback, New): T. A Brown Introduction to Genetics: A Molecular Approach (Paperback, New)
T. A Brown
R585 R539 Discovery Miles 5 390 Save R46 (8%) Special order

Genetics today is inexorably focused on DNA. The theme of Introduction to Genetics: A Molecular Approach is therefore the progression from molecules (DNA and genes) to processes (gene expression and DNA replication) to systems (cells, organisms and populations). This progression reflects both the basic logic of life and the way in which modern biological research is structured. The molecular approach is particularly suitable for the large number of students for whom genetics is a part of a broader program in biology, biochemistry, the biomedical sciences, and biotechnology.

Introduction to Genetics presents the basic facts and concepts with enough depth of knowledge to stimulate students to move on to more advanced aspects of the subject. The book is divided into three parts. Part 1 examines the function of the gene as a unit of biological information. Part 2 studies the role of the gene as a unit of inheritance. And Part 3 explores some of the areas of research that are responsible for the high profile that genetics has in our modern world, from agriculture and industry to medicine and forensics, and the ethical challenges that genetic knowledge imparts.

Introduction to Genetics is available for purchase as an e-book in its entirety or as individual chapters, and as a 1-year or 6-month rental.

On Learning from the Patient (Paperback, 2nd New edition): Patrick Casement On Learning from the Patient (Paperback, 2nd New edition)
Patrick Casement
R849 Discovery Miles 8 490 Special order

On Learning from the Patient is concerned with the potential for psychoanalytic thinking to become self-perpetuating. Patrick Casement explores the dynamics of the helping relationship - learning to recognize how patients offer cues to the therapeutic experience that they are unconsciously in search of. Using many telling clinical examples, he illustrates how, through trial identification, he has learned to monitor the implications of his own contributions to a session from the viewpoint of the patient. He shows how, with the aid of this internal supervision, many initial failures to respond appropriately can be remedied and even used to the benefit of the therapeutic work. By learning to better distinguish what helps the therapeutic process from what hinders it, ways are discovered to avoid the circularity of pre-conception by analysts who aim to understand the unconscious of others. From this lively examination of key clinical issues, the author comes to see psychoanalytic therapy as a process of re-discovering theory - and developing a technique that is more specifically related to the individual patient. The dynamics illustrated here, particularly the processes of interactive communication and containment, occur in any helping relationship and are applicable throughout the caring professions. Patrick Casement's unusually frank presentation of his own work, aided by his lucid and non-technical language, allows wide scope for readers to form their own ideas about the approach to technique he describes. This Classic Edition includes a new introduction to the work by Andrew Samuels and together with its sequel Further Learning from the Patient, will be an invaluable training resource for trainee and practising analysts or therapists, and those teaching in related professions.
