Real-World Learning - Preparing for your Profession Outside of the Classroom (Paperback): Bernadette Friedrich Real-World Learning - Preparing for your Profession Outside of the Classroom (Paperback)
Bernadette Friedrich
R1,162 Discovery Miles 11 620 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The workbook Real-World Learning: Preparing for your Profession Outside of the Classroom was developed and designed to help students get the most out of experiential education opportunities. Through twelve engaging chapters, students explore topics such as lifelong learning after college, professionalism in managing workplace relationships, work-life balance, how managing a project differs from managing one's own life, the importance of professional ethics, the mindfulness mindset, and whether to pursue a career in academia or in industry. Each chapter is designed around a specific career-related or career development topic. Students benefit from learning the theory behind the reasons for exploring each topic, as well as from the practical understanding of the knowledge they gain. All chapters feature clear learning objectives, real-life examples, personal reflection and development activities, key terms, suggested readings, and a concluding worksheet that allows for a more exploration of the topic and how it relates to the students' future career. While some of the material may be of special interest to engineering students, it is all very applicable to any student seeking an internship, cooperative education experience, service learning opportunity, or study abroad program.

SPUNK 2022 - A Manifesto Modernising Fatherhood (Hardcover): SPUNK 2022 - A Manifesto Modernising Fatherhood (Hardcover)
R247 Discovery Miles 2 470 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

From the Father Stunter Culture that says fathers are less than to masculinity narratives telling men theres only one way to be a father -- lets face it -- fathers are dealt a short shaft. The truth? We need fathers more than ever. We've an urgent task to set things right with, and for, fathers. And its one that must be done. If you don't agree; this book is not for you. SPUNK: A Manifesto Modernising Fatherhood elevates the conversation about modern fatherhood beyond the nuts and bolts of daddy daycare as it goes deep inside how men view their fathering as they attempt (day in, day out) to be a dad to their kids. Inside SPUNK you will discover more than a thousand men revealing what it means to be a father in this fast-changing world. Through a combination of brand-new research married alongside portraits from acclaimed podcast, School for Fathers, men uncover how much being a father is a whole new, often confusing, ballgame. Fathers are simultaneously stunted by outdated structures while held tight to fixed notions of manhood leaving them (and us) in something of a hot mess. SPUNK is a pragmatic tell-all of why fathers behave in the ways they do and a problem-solving roadmap for the kind of fatherhood men are already shooting for but struggling to grasp. The kind of fatherhood our children yearn for and deserve. Using data from fathers globally, SPUNK provides answers to: What kind of SPUNK do modern fathers need? How do fathers with this SPUNK raise their children? Why SPUNK will lead the way to a more authentic and fulfilled fatherhood identity. This straight-shooting book offers practical alternatives to sucking up the same old BS from the world we live in -- the media, policies, laws and workplace structures -- that attempts, relentlessly, to control what fathers are (not) capable of. Compassion, candour and radical father-allyship form the foundation of change as we collectively must ask, whats needed now for a better future for fathers and our children? The answer is SPUNK.

'Brilliantly witty, profoundly illuminating, Alice Sherwood is a master storyteller' Simon Schama 'This wise, quirky, funny, wholly original book is an authentic delight. I loved it.' Tim Harford 'Alice Sherwood is the real deal' Marcus Du Sautoy 'Fascinating and hugely entertaining' Brian Eno 'Beautifully written, hugely readable and completely fascinating - a book for smart thinkers everywhere.' Mary Ann Sieghart, author of The Authority Gap 'This is a trailblazing book.' Rory Sutherland 'Alice Sherwood places 'authenticity' in the dock with a series of brilliantly analysed cases. From soft drinks to malaria tablets, Andy Warhol to Yves Saint Laurent, they are unfailingly compelling and often shocking. I found myself instantly absorbed by her formidable storytelling powers and her wry and psychologically penetrating commentaries.' Philip Mould, presenter of Fake or Fortune? We live in an age when the pursuit of authenticity - from living our 'best life' to eating artisan food - matters more and more to us, but where the forces of inauthenticity seem to be taking over. Our world is full of people and products that are not what they seem. We no longer know whether we are talking to a person or a machine. But we can fight back - and this award-winning book shows us how. Authenticity argues that, although our counterfeit culture is shaped by the most powerful forces of evolution, economics, and technology, we can still come together to reclaim reality. Along the way, we meet the world's greatest impostor, who finally became what he'd pretended to be; the wartime counterfeiter who fooled a nation; nature's most outrageous deceivers; the artist who encouraged people to forge his pictures; the 'authentic' brand that was anything but. But we also meet people living unexpectedly rewarding lives in virtual worlds, and foot soldiers in the 'armies of truth' who are taking down today's conspiracies and cons. Provocative, insightful and original, Authenticity is that once-in-a-generation revelation: a work rich in histories but supremely and urgently of our own time. You'll never think about deception and reality in the same way again.

R620 R566 Discovery Miles 5 660 Save R54 (9%) Ships in 7 - 10 working days

Assessment is an important part of any psychologist's role and the outcome can have consequences, positive and negative, for the person being assessed. The principles and practice of psychological assessment is a guide to drawing up, administering and interpreting assessment procedures, and judging whether the techniques used are theoretically and procedurally sound. It also takes a special look at assessment from an organisational perspective, because although many of the technical and scientific issues with respect to psychological assessment are common to all areas of applied psychology, there are numerous issues and applications that are unique to the organisational context. The principles and practice of psychological assessment is more of a "how to" than a critical text, but includes some background information and in-depth theorising for more problematic issues. A glossary of terms and a unique cognitive map of psychological tests are provided. Changes in this third edition include a new chapter on the history of assessment in South Africa, and the dominant narrative in some quarters that industrial psychologists set out deliberately to ensure the failure of some segments of the workforce. The principles and practice of psychological assessment is aimed at third year and honours students of psychology and industrial psychology as well as practitioners.

This book introduces a new, evidence-based model of hypnotherapy called "hypnotic relaxation therapy" (HRT). Easily integrated with other therapeutic models or used alone, HRT has been proven effective in a wide variety of applications including pain management, anxiety reduction, smoking cessation, insomnia treatment, and treatment of post-menopausal symptoms. This new model advances the field of hypnotherapy by making relaxation an explicit part of hypnotherapy and measuring individual differences in hypnotizabillity with the introduction of a new measurement instrument, the Elkins Hypnotizability Scale (EHS). Additionally, it is the first book to integrate Cognitive-Experiential Self Theory with HRT.

Dr. Elkins is a highly esteemed leader in clinical hypnosis. He has served as President of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, President of the American Board of Psychological Hypnosis, Vice-Chair of the Council of Representatives of the International Society of Hypnosis, and Chair of the Fellows Committee of the Society for Psychological Hypnosis of the APA. His book provides clinicians with the guiding principles of HRT as well as the empirical research underlying it. Dr. Elkins offers a session-by-session approach to HRT that covers the process for structuring sessions, treatment planning, and dealing with resistance, and explicates detailed applications of HRT. Guidelines for formulating hypnotic suggestions are described, as is HRT as a proven effective source of intervention for hot flashes in menopausal women. The book explains how to integrate HRT with other modalities and discusses the ethical considerations of HRT. Additionally, the book introduces the Elkins Hypnotizability Scale for clinical assessment of hypnotizability that is currently being used in NIH-funded research at Baylor University and the Mayo Clinic. Case examples and sample transcripts are incorporated throughout the book, which also includes a sample brochure for patients. Key Features:
