A fully updated edition of an important psychology text for nursing and health science students.
This fully updated second edition of Psychology for Health Professionals is written specifically for health science and nursing students in Australia and New Zealand.
Authored by the highly regarded Patricia Barkway, with a diverse range of expert contributors, this Elsevier text interprets psychology for nurses, as well as for students of paramedicine, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, public health, pharmacy, psychology, social work and midwifery.
Psychology for Health Professionals 2e examines essential psychological theories, placing them within a social context. Acknowledging increasing awareness that behaviour is influenced as much by external factors as biological and psychological ones, the book's first half outlines psychological, lifespan and social theories, then applies them to contemporary health issues in later chapters.
A key focus of this leading psychology textbook is examining individual personality and psychological theory within the social context of people's lives. New content includes current, evidence-based research, references and clinical examples relevant to interdisciplinary, contemporary healthcare practice. Issues of cultural safety and awareness have been strengthened throughout; there is a new section on chronic illness and a focus on recovery.
This introductory psychology text does not assume its readers will have prior 'psychology' knowledge, yet it can easily be used well beyond first-year university.
"The material covered in the various chapters] is undoubtedly relevant, up to date, and has some nice features; the emphasis on social inequalities and cultural factors as important considerations for those involved in the delivery of healthcare is particularly good."

Through his development of quantitative experimental methods, the chemist Antoine Lavoisier (1743-1794) implemented a principle that many regard as the cornerstone of modern science: in every operation there is an equal quantity of material before and after the operation. The origin of Lavoisier's methods, however, has remained a missing piece in this remarkable episode of scientific history, perhaps because the talented young scientist himself was not prepared for the journey his discoveries would set before him. In this book, Frederic Holmes suggests that Lavoisier gradually came to understand the nature and power of his quantitative method during the year 1773, when he began to carry out a research program on the fixation and release of airs. Drawing upon Lavoisier's surviving laboratory notebooks, Holmes presents an engaging portrait of a scientist still seeking the way that would lead him to become the leader of one of the great upheavals in the history of science.
Holmes follows Lavoisier day-by-day at work in his laboratory over a course of several months. The scientist's resourcefulness and imagination spring to life in this account, as does his propensity to make mistakes, which taught him as much as his successes. During the course of this odyssey, Lavoisier saw his early theory of combustion collapse under the weight of his own efforts to provide experimental evidence to support it. In compensation, he acquired a method and the hard-won experience on which he would later construct a more enduring theoretical structure.

Описание: Build a Foundation for Continual Growth In today's turbulent world you need to continually develop new skills to remain agile and adaptive--otherwise, your strengths will become crutches. But contrary to what many people believe, the best way to develop new skills isn't working on your weaknesses--it's identifying and elevating the underdeveloped abilities that lie between your weaknesses and your strengths.
Books like StrengthsFinder 2.0 have helped leaders build on what they're best at--but they stop there. If you only go that far you're missing a huge opportunity for professional growth. Leading Silicon Valley consultants Thuy and Milo Sindell argue that relying exclusively on your top abilities can actually hold you back--it's critical that you expand your repertoire of skills. The most effective way to do that is find your hidden strengths--midlevel skills that can quickly be elevated into learned strengths with attention and focus. This book shows you how. Too many people waste their time working on their weaknesses, say the Sindells. Although focusing on shoring up weaknesses on the surface makes sense, they've found that it takes too much time and effort--the ROI just isn't there. The neglected skills in the middle, neither strengths nor weaknesses, are where the most potent development opportunities lie. They're close enough to being strengths that putting your energy there can offer a fast and powerful payoff. Us the Sindells' free online Hidden Strengths Assessment, along with the exercises and case studies in the book, you'll be able to identify your most promising hidden strengths and create a plan to turn them into major assets. In today's work environment, not growing and stretching yourself translates into lack of innovation, stagnation, and obsolescence. You can't keep leaning on the things you're naturally good at or your strengths will become training wheels. But with the Sindells' help, you'll continually develop new skills that will keep you riding at the front of the pack.

Описание: The October 2014 session of the Synod of Bishops looked at the >>> modern family through a pastoral lens, focusing in particular on >>> situations where there seemed to be a conflict between church >>> doctrine and pastoral need. Two subjects rose to prominence: the >>> situation of lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender persons and the >>> situations of Catholics whose marriage has failed and who have later >>> remarried. >>> In this contribution to the Synod scheduled for October 2015, Bishop Geoffrey Robinson contends that if the second session of the Synod is to find answers, it must first look seriously at the church teachings involved to see whether they might allow some room to move' in finding pastoral solutions.+ That is what he offers here.
