Download and read online A Manual for Developing Humans in PDF and EPUB A Manual for Developing Humans is the third book P.M.H. Atwater was told to write during her third near-death experience. Based entirely on threes, there are no chapters . . . only the development of conscious, subconscious, and superconscious aspects to each topic--every topic--for the Manual contains the basics on every level of life--from how to use your mind, develop and use intuition, understand color, sex, relationships, children, how to take out-of-body trips, interact with spirit beings, meditate, bend time, and rethink money. Aliveness jumps from every page--of soil, rocks, mountains, vegetation, the air we breathe, our planet, our solar system, our universe--even electricity and energy itself, along with The Void (the ultimate -cradle of creation-). Each of six main parts are separated by thought-form drawings. What she learned from 80 years of living and challenging every aspect of living is interwoven into what -The Voice Like None Other- showed her how to do. A Manual for Developing Humans is filled with surprises.

Download and read online The Human Spark in PDF and EPUB What makes a human a human? In The Human Spark, pioneering psychologist Jerome Kagan offers an answer in a sweeping narrative of our personal, moral, and cultural development. In this extended meditation on human psychology as well as the methods, successes, and failures of the scientists who study it. Kagan calls out the shortcomings of the modern fad for neuroscience, and questions psychiatry's quickness to pathologize the behavior of the young. More importantly, he reminds us that our lives, however influenced by biology and upbringing, are still a tapestry to be woven, not an outcome to be endured. Whether the reader is a first-time parent wondering what influence she, her genes, and the wider world will have on her child; an educator seeking insight into the development of her students; or simply a curious soul seeking self-knowledge, Kagan makes an expert and companionable guide.

Download and read online Building Resilience of Human Natural Systems of Pastoralism in the Developing World in PDF and EPUB This edited volume summarizes information about the situational context, threats, problems, challenges and solutions for sustainable pastoralism at a global scale. The book has four goals. The first goal is to summarize the information about the history, distribution and patterns of pastoralism and to identify the importance of pastoralism from social, economic and environmental perspectives. The results of an empirical investigation of the environmental and socio-economic implications of pastoralism in representative pastoral regions in the world are also incorporated. The second goal is to argue that breaking coupled human-natural systems of pastoralism leads to degradation of pastoral ecosystems and to create an analysis framework to assess the vulnerability of worldwide pastoralism. Our analysis framework provides approaches to help comprehensively understand the transitions and the impacts of human-natural systems in the pastoral regions in the world. The third goal is to identify the successful models in promoting coupled human-natural systems of pastoralism, and to learn lessons of breaking coupled human-cultural pastoralism systems through examining the representative cases in regions including Central Asia, Southern and Eastern Asia, Northern and Eastern Africa, the European Alps and South America. The fourth goal is to identify the strategies to build the resilience of the coupled human-natural systems of pastoralism worldwide. We hope that our book can facilitate the further examination of sustainable development of coupled human-natural systems of pastoralism by providing the summaries of existing data and information related to the pastoralism development, and by offering a framework for better understanding and analysis of their social, economic and environmental implications.

Download and read online The Grown Up s Guide to Teenage Humans in PDF and EPUB A practical guide to understanding teens from bestselling author and global youth advocate Josh Shipp. In 2015, Harvard researchers found that every child who does well in the face of adversity has had at least one stable and committed relationship with a supportive adult. But Josh Shipp didn’t need Harvard to know that. Once an at-risk foster kid, he was headed straight for trouble until he met the man who changed his life: Rodney, the foster parent who refused to quit on Shipp and got him to believe in himself. Now, in The Grown-Up’s Guide to Teenage Humans, Shipp shows all of us how to be that caring adult in a teenager’s life. Stressing the need for compassion, trust, and encouragement, he breaks down the phases of a teenage human from sixth to twelfth grade, examining the changes, goals, and mentality of teenagers at each stage. Shipp offers revelatory stories that take us inside the teen brain, and shares wisdom from top professionals and the most expert grown-ups. He also includes practice scripts that address tough issues, including: FORGIVENESS: What do I do when a teen has been really hurt by someone and it’s not their fault? COMMUNICATION: How do I get a teen to talk to me? They just grunt. TRUST: My teen blew it. My trust is gone. Where do we go from here? BULLYING: Help! A teen (or their friend) is being harassed. DIFFICULT AND AWKWARD CONVERSATIONS: Drugs. Death. Sex. Oh my. Written in Shipp’s playfully authoritative, no-nonsense voice, The Grown-Up’s Guide to Teenage Humans tells his story and unpacks practical strategies that can make a difference. Ultimately, it's not about shortcuts or magic words—as Shipp reminds us, it’s about investing in kids and giving them the love, time, and support they need to thrive. And that means every kid is one caring adult away from being a success story.

Download and read online Patient Practitioner Interaction in PDF and EPUB Over 20 years ago, Dr. Carol M. Davis created the path for teaching health care professionals how to develop self-awareness and communication skills critical to providing ethical, compassionate, and professional treatment and care to their patients. That path is Patient Practitioner Interaction: An Experiential Manual for Developing the Art of Health Care, now in its Fifth Edition. While the ways of communication have evolved over the last 23 years, the face-to-face role of the practitioner and patient has not. With technology having a large presence in health care, the personal interaction and comfort provided by the health care professional serves an even more important purpose in facilitating healing with therapeutic presence. Patient Practitioner Interaction, Fifth Edition begins with chapters that assist students in self- awareness and understanding of their own history in developing their values and communication skills. This then guides the student into learning how to differentiate personal values from professional values. In the remaining chapters, Dr. Carol M. Davis and her contributors take Patient Practitioner Interaction, Fifth Edition into the heart of the text: teaching actual skill development in communicating with patients, as well as skills in diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment. The updated exercises at the end of each chapter encourage an essential element in the inculcation of these fundamental skills--reflection and personalization of the material to one's own story. New in the Fifth Edition: * A new chapter on communicating about spirituality that teaches health care professionals to better assess the needs of patients and families dealing with hope, faith, and despair * New material on communicating in the information age * A reorganization of the chapters, contemporary terminology, and references * New and updated exercises at the end of each chapter in the book * A companion website that includes the chapter exercises--available with new textbook purchase * Updated instructors material for faculty use in the classroom Instructors in educational settings can visit www.efacultylounge.com for additional material to be used for teaching in the classroom. From the Foreword by Dr. Helen J. Hislop: "The author and contributors have made the topic not just a walk through social and personal issues and professional and personal behaviors, they have encased it in a scientific format of mainstream humanity, within each individual, between a caregiver and a care receiver, between friends or adversaries. Even more notably, Dr. Davis has provided health professionals with a road map to personal growth and worth and a source of human behavior that will engender faith, trust, and open and honest interactions between patients and therapists--in short, a thesaurus and encyclopedia of the sacred trust that must exist for a successful humanitarian experience in the health care arena." Patient Practitioner Interaction: An Experiential Manual for Developing the Art of Health Care, Fifth Edition by Dr. Carol M. Davis is the answer to every curriculum's need to develop effective interpersonal professional behavior in their students.
