Crisis intervention is offered in many settings. Examples include crisis centers, hotlines, Internet-based programs, mental health centers, college and university counseling centers, hospitals, schools, children and youth programs, correctional facilities, victim assistance programs, and other social service agencies. Staff members and interns in such organizations, as well as students in human services courses, have relied on earlier editions of CRISIS INTERVENTION—which one reviewer said "reads like a novel" and another described as "an excellent book with a wealth of information." The boo

Concerned with contemporary notions of personhood and the relationship between persons and places, this book, presents a detailed insight into the Vanua Lavan’s engagement with modernity, and examines how they relate to the past, make sense of the present and anticipate the future. Marilyn Strathern’s claim that the Melanesian person is a dividual by and large holds for the Vanua Lavan person. But Vanua Lavans have also been exposed to, and creatively engaged with, what can be summarised under the term ’Western individualism’. The author draws together several themes, d

A delightful, whimsical tale—one of the most popular books for cat lovers ever written, now newly illustrated. May Sarton’s fictionalized account of her cat Tom Jones’s life and adventures prior to making the author’s acquaintance begins with a fiercely independent, nameless street cat who follows the ten commandments of the Gentleman Cat—including "A Gentleman Cat allows no constraint of his person, not even loving constraint." But after several years of roaming, Tom has grown tired of his vagabond lifestyle, and he concludes that there might be some appeal after all

Hedges poses dozens of questions that young soldiers might ask about combat, and then answers them by quoting from medical and psych
