Here is the result of over ten years of hands-on clinical experience by two experts wha have worked with the elderly. The authors explore the contributions of the creative arts therapies, specifically movement and drama therapy, to the individual and communal welfare of residents in nursing homes. Waiting at the Gate: Creativity and Hope in the Nursing Home eloquently demonstrates how movement and drama therapy facilitate the preservation of life, of meaning, and of hope by seeking the beautiful and playful aspects of the self, and valuing humor, flexibility, and spontaneity in relationships with others. The authors show how these values challenge the "waiting to die" phenomenon of the custodial nursing home and offer lively alternatives to the resident in the new institution of the 1990s.

This book offers essential information about assessing, managing, and providing mental health treatment for suicidal adult outpatients. Suicide is a heartbreaking phenomenon that is the result of innumerable factors embedded in the personal histories and experiences of each patient. Yet despite this complexity, research has uncovered commonalities that can enable mental health practitioners to successfully treat suicidal patients. In this book, author Sam Knapp guides readers through the full process of treating suicidal patients, from screening to relapse prevention, using effective, research-informed interventions. He explains suicidal behavior through ideation-to-action theories of suicide, and argues for the application of principle-based ethics when making treatment decisions. He emphasizes the importance of a strong therapeutic relationship, and respecting patient autonomy as much as possible in such circumstances. Throughout, he makes current research on suicide accessible and useful to practicing mental health providers, connecting it with practical approaches and case examples informed by the author's extensive clinical experience.
Technology-Mediated Education in Health Sciences describes the empowering possibilities that are available to health sciences educators at tertiary institutions. It is a guide to using technology to enhance the educator's message, without the technology 'becoming' the message. Technology-Mediated Education in Health Sciences establishes ten paradigms for achieving your goals as an educator with the aid of technology. It positions the educator as the human face that defines and drives the teaching–learning experience, with technology and media playing supporting roles. An extensive toolbox supports educators in implementing new technologies, and includes sample lesson plans, factors to consider in materials production, a guide to develop instructional materials, writing tips, checklists for evaluating study materials and advice on culturally appropriate design. Various case studies have been provided that discuss how technology has been successfully adopted in health sciences contexts. The authors draw from the latest trends and developments in ICTs to present a vision of the modern lecture hall and educator–student relationship. In it, the educator is seen as a facilitator; knowledge is the product of collaborative discovery; and communication is diverse, immediate and constructive. Throughout the book, the authors remain aware of the fine line that early-adopting educators have to tread: on the one hand, they cannot be overly dependent on ICTs (thereby turning education into a mere technological activity); and on the other, they should not over-estimate the power of technology that they minimise their own human influence on learning. The question that the reader is left with is: 'Which technologies and methods are appropriate for my content, my context and my students?.
