Genre: Medical

SUBSTANCE ABUSE COUNSELING, Fifth Edition, is at the cutting edge of the addiction field, combining a focus on the most current empirical studies with a firm belief that clients must be treated with a collaborative and respectful approach. These core values lay the basis for individualized treatment planning, attention to the client's social environment, a multicultural perspective, and a recognition that client advocacy is part of the counselor's role. Authors Lewis, Dana, and Blevins believe strongly that clients differ not only in the specific behaviors and consequences associated with their drug use but also in culture, gender, social environments, physical concerns, mental health, and a host of other variables. Using an integrated approach, the authors describe innovative methods for meeting clients' needs through personalized assessment, treatment planning, and behavior change strategies, showing students how to select the most effective treatment modalities for each client. Updated with new references, this edition features a stronger emphasis on motivational interviewing, expanded material on ethical considerations, coverage of cultural and diversity considerations in every chapter, and digital downloads of key forms that appear throughout the text.

The longrifles of western Pennsylvania

Author: Richard F. Rosenberger
Publisher: Univ of Pittsburgh Pr
ISBN: UOM:39015029077404
Release Date: 1993-01-01
Genre: Antiques & Collectibles

The American longrifle, also known as the Kentucky rifle, was the finest rifle in the world for over a century. As this beautifully illustrated book shows, the gunmakers of western Pennsylvania were second to none in their skill and artistry. From the first settling of the land west of the Alleghenies, local gunsmiths produced the rifles that enabled the frontier family to survive in the wilderness. Richard F. Rosenberger and Charles Kaufmann have written the definitive work on the guns and gunsmiths of Allegheny and Westmoreland counties from the mid-eighteenth century to about 1870, with an emphasis on the "golden age" (1785-1815). They present a brief history of the longrifle, an introduction to its manufacture and use in western Pennsylvania in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, biographies of all major gunmakers, and detailed descriptions of known guns. They include fifty-eight longrifles and pistols, each one photographed in three views. Several are shown in full color. Close-ups reveal the exceptionally fine detail on some of the rifles. The American longrifle evolved slowly from its European ancestor, beginning about 1725. In order to survive on the frontier, settlers required a weapon of greater accuracy, lighter weight, increased efficiency in the use of powder and ball, and longer range. Over time, these requirements stimulated the development of a new rifle, which became the finest firearm of its day. The longrifle may have been a necessity; but it was often a work of art as well, with a finely carved and inlaid stock and an intricately designed patch box. This book establishes western Pennsylvania as an important site in the manufacture of the American longrifle. Itis essential reading for collectors and for anyone interested in the history of this area.

Mindfulness Based Play Family Therapy Theory and Practice

Author: Dottie Higgins-Klein
Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company
ISBN: 9780393708639
Release Date: 2013-09-09
Genre: Medical

Incorporating mindfulness and family therapy into play-family sessions. When a child is offered a space to relax the “busy mind,” his experience is comparable to mindfulness meditation. Therapists can help children remain in this calm state—in the state of the present moment—if they have the right tools and techniques to do so. During this stillness, a child can reach a level of consciousness that is parallel to the deepened awareness that occurs during mindfulness meditation. Conducting play sessions in this stage allows for healing and progress. Not only can the symptoms of children’s pain be reduced in intensity and duration, but their self-esteem can be enhanced. This book presents a new and comprehensive framework for helping children through play therapy within the context of the family and incorporating ideas from the practice of mindfulness. This experience-based therapeutic model respectfully derives from the best roots of traditional family therapy and play therapy modalities. Additionally, it draws from child development theory, interpersonal neurobiology, and mindfulness. Either spontaneous play or directed play can be used according to the need.
