On Learning from the Patient (Paperback, 2nd New edition): Patrick Casement On Learning from the Patient (Paperback, 2nd New edition)
Patrick Casement
R709 Discovery Miles 7 090 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

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.

An Introduction to Statistical Modeling of Extreme Values (Hardcover, 2001 ed.): Stuart Coles An Introduction to Statistical Modeling of Extreme Values (Hardcover, 2001 ed.)
Stuart Coles
R2,650 R2,233 Discovery Miles 22 330 Save R417 (16%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Directly oriented towards real practical application, this book develops both the basic theoretical framework of extreme value models and the statistical inferential techniques for using these models in practice. Intended for statisticians and non-statisticians alike, the theoretical treatment is elementary, with heuristics often replacing detailed mathematical proof. Most aspects of extreme modeling techniques are covered, including historical techniques (still widely used) and contemporary techniques based on point process models. A wide range of worked examples, using genuine datasets, illustrate the various modeling procedures and a concluding chapter provides a brief introduction to a number of more advanced topics, including Bayesian inference and spatial extremes. All the computations are carried out using S-PLUS, and the corresponding datasets and functions are available via the Internet for readers to recreate examples for themselves. An essential reference for students and researchers in statistics and disciplines such as engineering, finance and environmental science, this book will also appeal to practitioners looking for practical help in solving real problems. Stuart Coles is Reader in Statistics at the University of Bristol, UK, having previously lectured at the universities of Nottingham and Lancaster. In 1992 he was the first recipient of the Royal Statistical Society's research prize. He has published widely in the statistical literature, principally in the area of extreme value modeling.

Apartheid, 1948-1994 (Paperback): Saul Dubow Apartheid, 1948-1994 (Paperback)
Saul Dubow
R483 Discovery Miles 4 830 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This new study offers a fresh interpretation of apartheid South Africa. Emerging out of the author's long-standing interests in the history of racial segregation, and drawing on a great deal of new scholarship, archival collections, and personal memoirs, he situates apartheid in global as well as local contexts. The overall conception of Apartheid, 1948-1994 is to integrate studies of resistance with the analysis of power, paying attention to the importance of ideas, institutions, and culture. Saul Dubow refamiliarises and defamiliarise apartheid so as to approach South Africa's white supremacist past from unlikely perspectives. He asks not only why apartheid was defeated, but how it survived so long. He neither presumes the rise of apartheid nor its demise. This synoptic reinterpretation is designed to introduce students to apartheid and to generate new questions for experts in the field.

Introduction to Game Design, Prototyping, and Development - From Concept to Playable Game with Unity and C# (Paperback): Jeremy... Introduction to Game Design, Prototyping, and Development - From Concept to Playable Game with Unity and C# (Paperback)
Jeremy Gibson Bond
R990 R818 Discovery Miles 8 180 Save R172 (17%) Shipped within 4 - 9 working days

Game development and design are among today's fastest-growing technical fields, now supported by programs in hundreds of colleges and universities. Today's #1 game development platform and engine is Unity, and C# is the most powerful language available for writing Unity applications. Now, one hands-on guide covers both game development and design, and both Unity and C#.
Written by an instructor who helped pioneer America's #1 university game development program at USC, this guide illuminates the basic tenets of game design and presents a detailed, project-based introduction to game prototyping and development, using both paper and the Unity game engine.
Jeremy Gibson presents prototyping as a core game design skill (much as sketching is a core artist's skill), taking a straightforward, commonsense approach that has been refined over many years of teaching beginners. Throughout, you're encouraged to experiment on your own, and to discover that most problems have multiple solutions.
Gibson first introduces general game design concepts, including game mechanics, design approaches, methodologies for analyzing games, and the math and probabilistic foundations of many games. Next, he explores basic programming concepts that are nearly identical across most modern languages (e.g., variables, functions, classes, arrays, loops, and conditionals.
Then, in the heart of the book, Gibson presents eight hands-on game prototyping tutorials, each delving into specific prototyping and programming skills. These modular tutorials cover games ranging from block puzzles to first-person shooters, 2D platformer to physics puzzles. Each tutorial chapter ends with optional exercises that encourage you to enhance the games you've already constructed, and learn more skills for launching your own original projects.
To support new developers, Gibson also presents a simple C# reference that makes this language far easier to learn and use -- whether you're writing games or anything else.

It presents its data and interpretations in a manner which does not avoid the issues revealed within the research but has an uplifting effect on the reader and leaves them feeling optimistic about the quality of History teaching in UK secondary schools." Robert Wyness, Student, De Montfort University, Leicester,UK* Why do we teach and learn about the past? * How is history taught in schools? * What are the influences on the way teachers teach and pupils learn about the past? History is one of the most ideologically disputed of school subjects. Over the past generation, the subject has experienced fundamental changes in content, pedagogy and approach. This book is the first detailed account of the way history is taught in schools to be published for 30 years. Drawing on fieldwork in comprehensive schools, and on research studies worldwide, the authors pose fundamental questions about the way teachers teach and learners learn. They consider its purposes on teaching about the past in a world of accelerating change. The book sets out to explore the realities of classroom history teaching and to offer pointers for the development on the subject in a new century.
