Release Date: 2015-09-14
Genre: Social Science

Working with Students with Disabilities: Preparing School Counselors by Vicki A. McGinley and Barbara C. Trolley is an essential tool for all school counselors in training and in practice with the aim to provide a comprehensive approach to working with students with disabilities in a school setting. As more students with disabilities are being included, school counselors need to have a fundamental understanding of the terminology, laws, principles, collaboration, assessment measures, and psycho-social, diversity issues associated with special education. This book continues in the trend of providing sound, evidenced-based knowledge with practical case examples and guided exercises, making the material 'come alive' and fostering critical thinking. “Finally, a book FOR school counselors that specifically addresses the needs of students with disabilities and how we can interface with the team in supporting these students.” –Nona Cabral, California Baptist University “McGinley and Trolley have brought together in one exceptional volume the vast material that modern school counselors often leave the classroom searching for – how to understand the complexities of the system in regards to students with special needs, how to best collaborate with professionals and families in meeting those needs, and how to best structure interventions and programs to move those students forward across social, emotional, and academic realms.” –Carrie Lynn Bailey, Georgia Southern University “McGinley and Trolley have crafted a text that illuminates the multifaceted responsibilities of school counselors relevant to special education. Faculty, graduate students and practicing counselors alike will find the problem-based learning approach a helpful guide for integrating the content covered in this text into their professional practice.” –Kylie P. Dotson-Blake, East Carolina University “Special education students are frequently the most marginalized group on school campuses. Working with Students with Disabilities: Preparing School Counselors points to ways school counselors can open pathways for creating a learning community that supports all students.” –Rolla E. Lewis, California State University, East Bay

Systematic Instruction of Functional Skills for Students and Adults with Disabilities

Author: Keith Storey
Publisher: Charles C Thomas Publisher
ISBN: 9780398091576
Release Date: 2017-02-27
Genre: People with disabilities

This book provides an overview of systematic instructional strategies and is written in a format so that teachers and other service providers can immediately put the information to use. It specifically focuses upon systematic instruction for individuals with disabilities (school age and adults) and is generic across age groups as well as disability labels. The book focuses on improving instructional practices for students and adults with disabilities. Practitioners may understand the importance of placing individuals in different settings (e.g., inclusive classrooms, supported employment sites) but not understand how to improve their skills once they are in that setting. This book is intended to give teachers and other service providers the instructional skills for improving the skills of the individuals that they are serving. The most unique feature of the text is that it is written specifically for practitioners in the field (teachers and adult service providers) as well as those in training rather than being written for other academics. An advantage of this book is that those preparing teachers and others can easily use it in methods courses as it covers instructional methodology that is seldom covered in detail in most texts. College instructors will find the book a good choice for their classes based upon: the consistent format throughout the book; the “readability” of the book for students; the comprehensive coverage of systematic instruction; and the direct applicability to applied settings. Others providing instruction, supervision, and training to direct service providers will find this book useful, such as those working in schools as well as those in transition and adult service settings.

Theorie und Praxis der Gruppenpsychotherapie

Author: Irvin D Yalom
Publisher: Klett-Cotta
ISBN: 9783608101089
Release Date: 2015-09-17
Genre: Psychology

Jetzt nur für kurze Zeit: Preiswerte Jubiläumsedition! Der amerikanische Psychotherapeut und Autor auflagenstarker Romane ist zugleich Verfasser des Lehrbuches zur Gruppenpsychotherapie. Es versteht sich als praktische Anleitung für Psychotherapeuten aller Schulen, die mit Gruppen arbeiten. Es reflektiert zugleich aber auch die wissenschaftlichen Grundlagen des Fachs. Der Fülle der Gruppentherapien wird Irvin Yalom gerecht, indem er sie nach ihren Methoden und »therapeutischen Faktoren« ordnet. Fallbeispiele aus mehr als 2000 Gruppensitzungen machen den Text so anschaulich, dass auch ein praktisch wenig erfahrener Therapeut die besonderen Schwierigkeiten einer Gruppenbehandlung meistern kann. Ein Buch, das sich seit über zwei Jahrzehnten als anerkanntes Lehrbuch halten kann, benötigt von Zeit zu Zeit eine gründliche Überarbeitung. In diese Ausgabe, die teilweise neu übersetzt wurde, gingen zahlreiche Anpassungskorrekturen ein. Überholte Therapieansätze wurden gestrichen, viele neue theoretische und methodische Erkenntnisse wurden integriert. Am grundsätzlichen Aufbau des Buches und an seiner Zielrichtung wurde jedoch nicht gerüttelt.
