Theory and practice of family counseling and therapy, 2nd Edition embraces multiple perspectives and provides a comprehensive discussion of contemporary family theories and practices, including human validation process and symbolic-experiential models. Bitter encourages students' personal growth and development as family therapists with a warm, inviting writing style and numerous self-reflection and active-learning exercises. Learning is enhanced through a consistent chapter organization and the use of a single case, the Quest family, throughout. This approach enables students to compare and contrast the various models and see how different approaches can be used in an integrated way. The text presents a four-stage process for conducting family sessions, including processes for forming relationships, family assessment, hypothesizing and shared meaning, and facilitating change. Each chapter ends with a Quest family case (which applies the model discussed in the chapter to the fictional Quest family), a summary and multicultural evaluation section, exercises for personal and professional growth, contact and Web information for finding out more about the specific therapy, recommended supplementary readings, and references. Additional cases throughout the text, based on Bitter's years of practice in marriage and family counseling, help students see how theories play out in the real world. A unique chapter on "Parenting for the 21st Century" addresses the fact that a majority of family counseling deals with parenting questions and issues.

"... In the development of training and practice, as a student and as a professional school counselor, counselors are searching for tangible, grounded real life examples of how to transfer and apply theory into practice for commonly encountered counseling situations.
The purpose of this text is to introduce students in training and new professional school counselors to various situations each is likely to come across during training and the first 5 years of practice. It is our hope that exposure to these experiences and attention to the diverse theoretical approaches that can be applied to resolve these student situations will enhance your training and better prepare you to deal with a variety of situations. ..." --Preface.
Basin Ghosts is a collection of original poems by Jesse Graves, author of Tennessee Landscape with Blighted Pine. Many poems in Basin Ghosts address places and themes that resonated in Graves's first collection, which won the Weatherford Award, the Thomas and Lillie D. Chaffin Award, and the Appalachian Writers' Association Book of the Year Award in Poetry. The poems in Basin Ghosts examine life in the rural South, changes that have occurred over generations in communities there, and the ways in which the past lives on through memory and attachment to the land.
This volume provides a comprehensive introduction to the theory of electronic motion in molecular processes an increasingly relevant and rapidly expanding segment of molecular quantum dynamics. Emphasis is placed on describing and interpreting transitions between electronic states in molecules as they occur typically in cases of reactive scattering between molecules, photoexcitation or nonadiabatic coupling between electronic and nuclear degrees of freedom.
Electron Dynamics in Molecular Interactions aims at a synoptic presentation of some very recent theoretical efforts to solve the electronic problem in quantum molecular dynamics, contrasting them with more traditional schemes. The presented models are derived from their roots in basic quantum theory, their interrelations are discussed, and their characteristic applications to concrete chemical systems are outlined. This volume also includes an assessment of the present status of electron dynamics and a report on novel developments to meet the current challenges in the field.
Further, this monograph responds to a need for a systematic comparative treatise on nonadiabatic theories of quantum molecular dynamics, which are of considerably higher complexity than the more traditional adiabatic approaches and are steadily gaining in importance. This volume addresses a broad readership ranging from physics or chemistry graduate students to specialists in the field of theoretical quantum dynamics.

The book Astro4U: An Introduction to the Science of the Cosmos excites students about the grandeur of astronomy and how the universe functions. Filled with vibrant figures and informative tables that support the written text, the book has a fresh, casual, student-friendly tone that dramatically increases interest in the material while also making it more accessible. The book provides a college-level description of science with astronomy serving as the vehicle of delivery for displaying the scientific model. The content follows a traditional progression of scale, beginning with a study of the sky, followed by discussions of ancient and medieval astronomy, modern scientific practices, and key physical principles. Chapters move through the Solar System, stars, then galaxies, and finally the cosmos as a whole. Additionally, the book presents astronomy as the story of light and gravity, crucial threads that permeate the text. Because students often express concern about the math content in astronomy classes, the book begins with a chapter entitled "Astro Maths" that reviews all the mathematical skills and concepts needed to complete the course. This up-front investment increases student confidence, eliminates one of the primary blocks students face, and improves chances for student achievement and success. Astro4U is written for general education survey courses in astronomy that are geared to non-science majors.
More Than Heavy Rain brings together poems of intense observation culled from a life lived mostly outside. Set mostly around the poet’s home along the Watauga River in northeast Tennessee, the poems also reach out to such distant locations as Montana, Alaska, and post-war Germany. Some of them reconstruct the poet’s childhood in rural West Virginia. Some examine his family history, the events and relatives who helped determine the way he views the world.
This Letort Paper proposes that actions, policies, and deeds—those of the U.S. Government and al-Qaeda—be leveraged as a means of delegitimizing al-Qaeda terrorist propaganda. Two chief fronts—changing deeds and challenging deeds—is proposed. Changing deeds requires that the United States carefully and systematically examine its own foreign and military policies and their specific consequences for the Arab and Muslim world. Challenging deeds comprises systematically countering with evidence and fact al-Qaeda’s two greatest propagandistic fabrications: that the United States is a crusader at war with Islam, and that al-Qaeda is the vanguard defender of a besieged and oppressed Muslim Umma. Provocative at times, and even controversial in its willingness to reconsider long-standing U.S. Government policies, this Letort Paper is adamant that it is not spin, empty platitudes, and “lipstick on pigs,” but actual deeds, that are our surest bet for defeating this ignoble adversary.

Brian Jeffrey Maxson
This book offers a major contribution for understanding the spread and appeal of the humanist movement in Renaissance Florence. Investigating the connections between the individuals who were part of the humanist movement, Brian Jeffrey Maxson reconstructs the networks that bound them together. Overturning the problematic categorization of humanists as either professional or amateurs, a distinction based on economics and the production of original works in Latin, he offers a new way of understanding how the humanist movement could incorporate so many who were illiterate in Latin, but who nonetheless were responsible for an important intellectual and cultural paradigm shift. The book demonstrates the massive appeal of the humanist movement across socio-economic and political groups and argues that the movement became so successful and so widespread because by the 1420s¬-30s the demands of common rituals began requiring humanist speeches. Over time, deep humanist learning became more valuable in the marketplace of social capital, which raised the status of the most learned humanists and helped disseminate humanist ideas beyond Florence.

Fred W. Sauceman
In his latest collection of writings about the foodways of the Appalachian region, Fred W. Sauceman guides readers through country kitchens and church fellowship halls, across pasture fields and into smokehouses, down rows of vegetable gardens at the peak of the season and alongside ponds resonant with the sounds of a summer night. The scenes and subjects are oftentimes uniquely personal, and they combine to tell a love story, a chronicle of one person's affection for a region and its people, its products, and its places. Traversing Appalachia from an Italian kitchen in Pennsylvania to a soda shop in South Carolina, BUTTERMILK AND BIBLE BURGERS is a tribute to people loyal to the land and proud of their culinary heritage. Sauceman describes the common bond of breaking beans, the dignity of the barbecue pit, the nobility of the black-iron skillet, and the transformative power of a glass of Tennessee buttermilk. Sauceman also shares recipes from a teacher who lived to be 116. He explains Kentucky banana croquettes and Virginia Ju-Ju burgers. He samples trout caviar in the mountains of North Carolina and sorghum on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee. From a notebook stained by Nehi, Sauceman calls forth stories of Hungarian immigrants who gather every fall to make cabbage rolls in Virginia and Cubans who converge in Tennessee to roast a pig and to remember. BUTTERMILK AND BIBLE BURGERS is most of all an expression of gratitude for the persistence of the people who feed us.

Sustainable strategic management (SSM) involves analysing, formulating, and implementing business strategies that are economically competitive, socially responsible, and in balance with the cycles of nature. SSM has emerged from the coevolutionary interactions of business organisations with the society they serve and the planet they call home. SSM strategic portfolios allow organisations to create competitive advantages by serving as agents of social change and ecological protection.
This book has been specifically written as a text for traditional graduate and undergraduate strategic management courses, and its short length makes appropriate as a supplementary text in these courses as well. The authors have structured the book to follow the standard strategic management process, and they have included an ongoing descriptive case on Eastman Chemical Company designed to provide an in-depth example of the concepts presented in the chapters.
From creating organisational visions and missions, to formulating, implementing, and evaluating goals and strategies, this book provides readers with new ways of thinking about their organisation's strategic role in the greater society and ecosystem now and in the future.
