Divergent Thinking and Creative Potential (Paperback): Mark A. Runco Divergent Thinking and Creative Potential (Paperback)
Mark A. Runco
R1,000 Discovery Miles 10 000 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Divergent thinking tests are given more often than any other test of creativity .They are not actually tests of creativity per se but are instead assessments of creative potential. They are based on sound scientific theory and have been improved many times over the years. This volume describes the theory supporting the use of divergent thinking tests. It also presents specific research findings. It describes what has been discovered about divergent thinking in the past 10 years. Unlike other volumes, it focuses on divergent thinking rather than attempting to cover all of creativity assessment. It gives the specifics of research so the validity of the claims can be easily determined. Each chapter is based on a specific research project so each stands alone. A large number of topics are covered, including the impact of experience, the role of time in creative thinking, differences among various tests of divergent thinking, the use of new scoring methods, and the relationship of divergent thinking with other facets of the creative process.

This book aims to provide a comprehensive reference for academics, practitioners, policy makers, researchers, and students who are interested in the subject of happiness and wellbeing in Singapore.

The Delusions of Crowds - Why People Go Mad in Groups (Hardcover): William J Bernstein The Delusions of Crowds - Why People Go Mad in Groups (Hardcover)
William J Bernstein
R640 Discovery Miles 6 400 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

From the award-winning author of A Splendid Exchange, a fascinating new history of financial and religious mass manias over the past five centuries "We are the apes who tell stories," writes William Bernstein. "And no matter how misleading the narrative, if it is compelling enough it will nearly always trump the facts." As Bernstein shows in his eloquent and persuasive new book, The Delusions of Crowds, throughout human history compelling stories have catalyzed the spread of contagious narratives through susceptible groups--with enormous, often disastrous, consequences. Inspired by Charles Mackay's 19th-century classic Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds, Bernstein engages with mass delusion with the same curiosity and passion, but armed with the latest scientific research that explains the biological, evolutionary, and psychosocial roots of human irrationality. Bernstein tells the stories of dramatic religious and financial mania in western society over the last 500 years--from the Anabaptist Madness that afflicted the Low Countries in the 1530s to the dangerous End-Times beliefs that animate ISIS and pervade today's polarized America; and from the South Sea Bubble to the Enron scandal and dot com bubbles of recent years. Through Bernstein's supple prose, the participants are as colorful as their motivation, invariably "the desire to improve one's well-being in this life or the next." As revealing about human nature as they are historically significant, Bernstein's chronicles reveal the huge cost and alarming implications of mass mania: for example, belief in dispensationalist End-Times has over decades profoundly affected U.S. Middle East policy. Bernstein observes that if we can absorb the history and biology of mass delusion, we can recognize it more readily in our own time, and avoid its frequently dire impact.

"It is difficult to find books that provide such a wealth of information on legal issues for practicing clinicians. This is a solidly written, invaluable resource that all practicing mental health professionals must read." Score: 97, 5 Stars.--Doody's Medical Reviews

""Legal Self-Defense for Mental Health Practitioners" is interesting, informative, and committed to professional, ethical quality care of service recipients....Woody offers many useful risk management strategies for mental health professionals.... and his] discussions are provocative and are supported by current, well-established references."--PsycCRITIQUES

"I give high marks to "Legal Self-Defense for Mental Health Practitioners" because it presents a real-world perspective and no-nonsense analysis....As impressive, is that this valuable information is packed into a mere 153 pages, making the book an economical investment of time for the knowledge that is gained."--New England Psychologist

At some point in their careers, mental health professionals may face legal action from clients. Clients may be noncompliant regarding policies agreed upon at the outset of therapeutic services, not adhere to an individualized treatment plan, be inappropriately aggressive, and file unjustified ethics and licensing complaints and/or lawsuits. Unfortunately, many mental health practitioners are not prepared for such actions and suffer great distress that affects their professional and personal lives. This practical text, written by an author who is both a psychologist and an attorney, demonstrates how mental health professionals can avoid legally actionable mistakes in their practices and what to do if they occur.

Reflecting contemporary social policy and laws regarding mental health services, the text emphasizes the protection of rights for both practitioner and client, and addresses such pitfalls as malpractice, licensing hearings, noncompliant clients, and dealing with the legal system. It distills the author's wisdom, gained over more than 30 years of legal counsel to all types of mental health practitioners, and describes how to improve practice strategies for achieving quality care, confront ethics and licensing complaints, and defend against potential or actual lawsuits. Additionally, the book covers individualized treatment planning, effective record keeping, how to deal with dangerous clients, how to insulate yourself from risk, and more. Numerous real life examples further help practitioners foster the knowledge and skills to assertively defend their rights should the need arise. Key Features:

Illustrates how to avoid legally actionable mistakes in assessment and treatment Covers such issues as effective record keeping, treatment planning, dealing with dangerous or non-compliant clients, protecting your practice, and more Helps mental health professionals foster a "warrior" mentality when faced with unjust allegations of wrongdoing Presents numerous real-life cases

'thought provoking' Gwen Adshead Shocking, eye-opening and grimly fascinating, these are the true stories, patients and cases that have characterised a career spent treating mentally disordered offenders. As a forensic psychiatrist, it's Dr Das's job to treat and rehabilitate what the tabloids might call the 'criminally insane', many of whom assault, rob, rape, and even kill. His work takes him to high-security prisons and securely locked hospital wards across the country, as well as inside courtrooms, giving evidence as an expert witness. From the young woman who smothered her two-year-old nephew in a flash of psychosis, to the teenager who set his house on fire with his mother locked inside, Dr Das must delve into the minds of these violent offenders to elicit their symptoms of mental illness, understand their actions and prevent future atrocities. In this honest, revealing and at times humorous memoir, Dr Das shares stories from his fifteen years as a psychiatric doctor working with this dangerous clientele, detailing some of his most extreme, heart-breaking and bizarre cases - and how he's learned to live with his mistakes when the worse happens. Compelling, enlightening and candid, if you enjoyed Unnatural Causes, Dark Side of the Mind or The Prison Doctor, you'll love IN TWO MINDS.

Premonitions are impossible. But they come true all the time. Dr John Barker was an ambitious psychiatrist with an uncontrollable interest in strange mental conditions. In 1966, in the wake of a national disaster, he had an outlandish vision. He would collect the public's premonitions and forebodings. He would build a database to predict the future and help avert future disasters. The Premonitions Bureau is the astonishing story of this bizarre real-life undertaking - the radical thinking and peculiar characters behind it; the hundreds of correspondents, their visions, the headlines that they made; and the Bureau's two most gifted "percipients", a charismatic piano teacher and a troubled switchboard operator. Together, the pair predicted plane crashes and train wrecks, assassinations and international incidents with disturbing accuracy. And then, they called to give Barker their most unnerving premonition: a glimpse of his own imminent demise. The debut book from one of today's most exciting long-form storytellers, The Premonitions Bureau is an enthralling secret history of madness and wonder, promethean ambition and mortal fear - a journey to the unsettling reaches of the human mind.

It includes previously unpublished critiques of the ideas of Melanie Klein and comments on the work of other psychoanalysts, as well as clinical examples, case studies, and gems of thought extracted from his files. Many of the topics will be of direct use to clinicians: for example, play in the analytic situation, the use of silence; psychosomatic disorder, interpretation in analysis, and seven chapters on psychotherapy with children and adolescents. Other chapters treat such themes as the fate of the transitional object, fear of breakdown, the split-off male and female elements, the basis for self in body. Also included are Winnicott s writing on convulsion therapy and leucotomy; his memoir by his widow, Clare; and, as a postscript, a talk he gave late in life discussing the influences that shaped his work."

Now in its fourth edition, "Criminal Profiling" - winner of a 2013 Texty Award from the Text and Academic Authors Association - is an established resource centered on the deductive profiling method developed by the author. With 35% new content, this edition contains cases in each chapter, along with the latest advances in evidence-based profiling. Additional information has been added covering topics such as mass homicide, as well as the timely inclusion of a chapter on terrorist profiling and interviewing.

Deductive profiling is different from other forms of profiling in that it does not involve averaged, statistical profiles. Instead it focuses on criminal profiling as an investigative process, solving real crime through an honest understanding of the nature and behavior of criminals. It approaches each criminal incident as its own universe of behaviors and relationships. Throughout the text, the author illustrates the most crucial tenet that any good criminal profiler should adhere to: the enthusiastic desire to investigate and examine the facts.

"Criminal Profiling, Fourth Edition," is an ideal companion for students and professionals alike, including investigators, forensic scientists, criminologists, mental health professionals, and attorneys. Readers will use it as a comprehensive reference text, a handbook for evaluating physical evidence, a tool to bring new perspectives to cold cases, and as an aid in preparing for criminal trials.

The idea for this book originated at NCA's Summer Institute 'Catching Ourselves in the Act: A Collaborative Planning Session to Enrich our Discipline through Social Constructionist Approaches'. The conference provided the opportunity to interact with like-minded others to discuss how social construction approaches influence, or should influence, our work. Another goal for the conference and for this book is to promote social construction approaches within the discipline. We need to look forward by focusing on how the social construction perspective transforms our own work. When we teach, how can we best clarify the social construction principles we believe in, and how can we convey the passion we feel for this approach? How can we insure that our research practices are faithful to constructionist principles? What practices can we, or must we, adopt to remain faithful to these principles. Together, the chapters in this volume address such questions with the intention of helping us take the next step forward. This book extends the conversation about social constructionism approaches and invites others to participate in that conversation.

This edited collection provides a forum for communication scholars whose efforts are directed toward social change. Originating from theme sessions at the 2008 convention of the International Communication Association (ICA), this volume engages communication theory to enlarge communication practices. Chapters address perennial issues of interest to communication scholars as experienced in contemporary terrains: how can scholarship weave its way more fully into the lives of people residing outside of the academy; what counts as social impact; what are the epistemological and ontological debates that play out in the realm of communication scholarship that seeks to redress lived inequities; ans, what ethical demands accompany scholarship and activism in international landscapes characterized by globalization, neo-colonialism, and rapid technological shifts. Each chapter makes a distinctive contribution to communication theory and practice. Collectively, contributors' work reveals the eclectic nature of theoretical and methodological work pursued by communication scholars and practitioners, and focuses on meaning-making as it evolves, changes, adapts, and is sustained in conversation, mediated communication, distributed organizing, and other venues. This collection seeks to foster edifying dialogue about social injustices, and move people to meaningful reflection and action.
