Einführung in die kognitive Therapie nach Aaron T. Beck Neben Albert Ellis zählt vor allem Aaron T. Beck zu den Begründern der kognitiven Therapien. Beck unterzog die Psychoanalyse bei der Behandlung von Depressionen einer kritischen Überprüfung und kam zu dem Schluss, dass sie zu langwierig sei und keine nennenswerten Verbesserungen erziele. Eine kognitive Therapie der Depression sollte Abhilfe schaffen und in den Vordergrund rücken, wie Patienten ihre Wahrnehmung aktiv gestalten. Die Prinzipien der kognitiven Therapie nach Beck sind inzwischen erfolgreich auf viele weitere psychische Störungen übertragen worden. Frank Wills erläutert in diesem Buch ihre Entstehung und typischen Merkmale sowie Unterscheidungsmerkmale, die sie von anderen psychologischen Ansätzen abgrenzt. Dieses Buch ist ein weiterer Band aus der Reihe „Therapeutische Skills kompakt“, in der Theorie und Praxis einzelner Therapieformen fundiert und kurzweilig vorgestellt werden.

Highlighting some interesting and intriguing aspects of English phonetics and phonology from a variety of perspectives, this book brings up a number of empirical questions in order to emphasize the necessity of taking a very broad view of what spoken English means in today's socio-cultural context. English has become a truly global means of communication, used as a first, second, or additional language by millions and millions of diverse speakers, in a multitude of different communicative contexts, so that the very notions of native and non-native seem to have changed profoundly, as have the notions of central/ peripheral and standard/ non-standard with regard to English varieties spoken around the globe. Therefore, today more than ever before, in studying English phonetics many small research steps need to be taken to provide diverse and broad empirical data from as many different standpoints as possible. This collection indeed looks at English phonetics from a wide spectrum of perspectives, including those of native or EFL speakers, language varieties, L2 language teaching and learning, as well as language contact, development, and change.

Every year the few hundred members of the Committees, Task Forces, and Councils of the American Psychiatric Association meet in Washington, D.C. to conduct their business. They deliberate on a wide variety of issues encompassed in the activities of each group. The psychiatrists constituting this mixed and somewhat elite group include some of the better-known and promising people in the profession, which makes the plenary session and cocktail party good occasions to meet old friends and to make new ones. Several years ago one of us (N.B.L.) attended this gathering as a member of a soon-to-be defunct group, the Committee Liaison with the American College of Physicians, and met Ann Chappell, a member of the Task Force on Women. We were soon joined by Richard Grant. Ann impressed us with the work her group was doing on issues surrounding the Women's Movement as it relates to patients and the changing roles of the early 1970s. She was struck by the fact that although some women had been very active in this endeavor, nobody in Ameri can psychiatry was addressing issues which are arising in men as a result of the changing roles of women in society. Dick and Norm were moved by what she said and decided that they would make an effort to gather together people interested in the issue of the changing roles of males in society at the oncoming meeting of the American Psychiatric Association.
The proceedings of the 11th International Mine Ventilation Congress (11th IMVC), is focused on mine ventilation, health and safety and Earth science. The IMVC has become the most influential international mine ventilation event in the world, and has long been a popular forum for ventilation researchers, practitioners, academics, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, consultants and government officials around the globe to explore research results, exchange best practices, and to launch new products for a better and safer industry. It also serves as a useful platform to attract and train future ventilation professionals and mine planning engineers, as well as for mining companies to discover better practices to provide better ventilation planning.
