  1. Visual culture is central to how we communicate. Our lives are dominated by images and by visual technologies that allow for the local and global circulation of ideas, information, and politics. In this increasingly visual world, how can we best decipher and understand the many ways that our everyday lives are organized around looking practices and the many images we encounter each day? Now in a new edition, Practices of Looking: An Introduction to Visual Culture provides a comprehensive and engaging overview of how we understand a wide array of visual media and how we use images to express ourselves, to communicate, to play, and to learn. Marita Sturken and Lisa Cartwright-two leading scholars in the emergent and dynamic field of visual culture and communication-examine the diverse range of approaches to visual analysis and lead students through key theories and concepts.Using clear, accessible language, vivid examples, and more than 250 full-color illustrations, the authors both explain and apply theory as they discuss how we see paintings, prints, photographs, film, television, video, advertisements, the news, the Internet, digital media, and visualization techniques in medicine and science. This truly interdisciplinary text bridges art history, film, media, and cultural studies to investigate how images carry meaning within and between different cultural arenas in everyday life, from art and commerce to science and the law. Sturken and Cartwright analyze images in relation to a wide spectrum of cultural and representational issues (desire, power, the gaze, bodies, sexuality, and ethnicity) and methodologies (semiotics, Marxism, psychoanalysis, feminism, and postcolonial theory). Thoroughly updated to incorporate cutting-edge theoretical research, the second edition examines the following new topics: the surge of new media technologies; the impact of globalization on the flow of information and media form and content; and how nationalism and security concerns hav

    ‘An invaluable resource for social workers in all practice settings, not just mental health, and a core text for social work students.’ – Dr Valerie Gerrand, former AASW representative and board member of the Mental Health Council of Australia’An outstanding and very original contribution to the scholarship on mental health policy, research and service.’ – Associate Professor Maria Harries AM, University of Western AustraliaDeveloping the skills to work effectively with people who have mental health problems is fundamental to contemporary social work practice. Practitioners face new challenges in a rapidly changing work environment including working with consumers and their families and in multidisciplinary teams.

The new edition reflects the latest developments in best practice including the emergence of recovery theory and the importance of evidence-based approaches.This is a comprehensive guide to social work practice in specialist mental health settings as well as in other fields of practice, covering the most commonly encountered mental health problems.

    This innovative text shows why ethics is so important for social work practice, that it is not simply a way of defining and understanding what is good in practice, but is a means by which social work and other caring professions can actually achieve good practice.‘Professor Richard Hugman, University of NSW This book integrates ethical theory and political philosophy into a clear yet challenging framework for ethical action in social work. Firmly grounded in practice examples, it will be of great interest both to students and practitioners in the field.’ Professor Sarah Banks, Durham UniversityIn an increasingly fragmented and regulated world, the authors of Ethical Practice in Social Work argue that social work has become detached from its ethical roots. Their aim is to reinstate ethics as the driving force of good social work and welfare practice. Ethical Practice in Social Work provides the tools to develop essential ethical decision-making and problem-solving skills. Taking an applied approach with case studies in each chapter, the authors demonstrate how ethical principles can be used to transform practice into an effective, inclusive and empowering process for both professionals and their clients. They discuss the ethical principles social workers have traditionally adhered to, the role of the good social worker’ in the contemporary context, professionalism, and the way in which ethics can be used to reconcile the often differing demands of employers, community groups, clients, the profession and their own personal values. Ethical Practice in Social Work is a valuable professional reference and student text.

    “The authors set out to produce a book that would “demystify reflective practice” and they have succeeded!!! The book is rich in practical wisdom, concisely expressed, and will enable both experienced teachers and new entrants to use reflective practice to improve and develop teaching and learning in a complex and diverse lifelong learning sector.“Dr David Holloway, University of Portsmouth, UK. “This book speaks with academic authority and the experience and understanding of practitioners. The authors draw teachers into their world of everyday reflective practice that is much more than a requirement from trainee teachers, but rather is at the heart of all teachers’ practice. The authors highlight its value for improving teaching and learning and coping with ongoing change, whilst recognising honestly the difficulties in making time to reflect deeply and critically and the questions raised about the worth of reflective practice in an increasingly regulated sector. Rich examples bring the text to life, exemplify concepts and demonstrate practical applications.” Mary Samuels, Oxford Brookes University, UK. “This book has a heartening and optimistic message at its centre: reflective practice can help us as teachers discover what actually works to improve practice, not what should work or what we’ve been told might work. It is written in a refreshingly straightforward way that steers clear of educational jargon and aims for clarity; it is an antidote to the over-theorizing of Reflective Practice that it warns against.” Noelle Graal, Canterbury Christ Church University, UK. “The authors of this clear and informative book have delved into their extensive experience to produce a must have text for all those who care about the state of teaching and learning in the Lifelong Learning sector. By providing an in depth, detailed and critical accounts of the key processes and products of reflective practice their book must become a set text on initial teacher training courses for the sector and an essential resource for both tutors and managers.” Dr Graham Hitchcock, University Centre, Doncaster, UK. Reflective practice is an important skill for students learning to teach in the lifelong learning sector. This book makes the case for reflective practice in post-compulsory teaching and shows how it can be used to support teachers in coping with the complexities and contingencies of practice. The book introduces a basic model of reflective practice and then explores several further models relevant to teaching in the lifelong learning sector, offering guidance on the application of each model in practice. Collaborative approaches to reflective practice are also discussed, and the place of reflective practice in teachers continuing professional development is carefully examined. Other key features of the book include: Clear links with the professional standards for teachers in the lifelong learning sector Discussion of the challenges and issues when engaging in reflection on practice Coverage of action research, often considered an extension of reflective practice Illustrations drawn from the authors’ extensive experience in teaching and enabling learning Reflective Practice for Teaching in Lifelong Learning has been written to address the needs of student teachers across a whole range of lifelong learning courses.

    Best Practice in Construction Disputes takes a holistic approach to construction disputes in an effort to identify and examine their genesis and life cycle. It examines the factors that contribute to a high incidence of disputes on major construction projects, including the adversarial culture of the construction industry, the high degree of uncertainty surrounding projects, the inevitably of conflict between contracting parties and the role of the construction contract in facilitating such conflict. Best Practice in Construction Disputes analyses how conflicts on construction projects all too often escalate into costly and drawn-out disputes. It identifies strategies that parties can employ to ensure that conflicts are used to generate positive solutions to problems rather than escalating those problems into disputes. Dispute Avoidance Processes (DAPs) are a relatively recent innovation that are increasingly being used on major construction projects around the world to help parties communicate, cooperate and collaborate and avoid the escalation of conflicts into disputes. Best Practice in Construction Disputes contains the most comprehensive analysis of current DAP models, including Dispute Resolution Boards (DRBs), Dispute Adjudication Boards (DABs), and Dispute Resolution Advisors (DRAs). DAPs are, not a panacea, and there will always be disputes that cannot be avoided. Best Practice in Construction Disputes examines the key forms of Alternative/Appropriate Dispute Resolution (ADR) that are available for resolving construction disputes, including mediation, expert determination, senior executive appraisal/mini-trials and early neutral evaluation, as well as emerging hybrid models such as med-arb, arb-med and collaborative settlement processes. It provides the most scholarly analysis of how these models can be used to resolve construction disputes without the need to resort to any form of binding dispute resolution. Some construction disputes are incapable of being resolved without the imposition of a final and binding decision. Litigation, arbitration and adjudication are the three forms of binding dispute resolution available for the resolution of construction disputes. Best Practice in Construction Disputes examines these three systems in order to determine how they currently work and how they could be improved. This is the first book to identify world’s best practice in the three distinct areas of avoidance, management and resolution of construction disputes. It provides a comprehensive roadmap to guide the construction industry out of its current disputatious culture and into state-of-the-art practices that will make major construction and infrastructure projects more profitable for all involved. This review was first published in the NSW Law Society Journal Vol 52 No.4 May 2014.This review was first published in the Law Institute Journal Victoria 88.01, April 2014. Features * Examines the role construction lawyers can play before, during and after completion of a project to help the parties complete their projects on time, within budget and with no outstanding disputes. * Comprehensively identifies best practices for the avoidance, management and resolution of construction disputes. * Focuses on solutions for the construction community to work towards the avoidance of disputes, rather than just focusing on their resolution.

    “We are wellness. We are consciousness. That is our natural state. Disease is an imposter.” As one of the world’s only female experts on the ancient Indian tradition of Ayurvedic medicine, renowned teacher Bri. Maya Tiwari has devoted her heart and soul to sharing the philosophy and methods that saved her from terminal cancer and redirected her life. Now, in The Path of Practice, she offers a short course in healing and living and reveals how she has gone back to the sources of Ayurvedic wisdom to reclaim time-honored, natural, and spiritual techniques for contemporary life. Diagnosed with ovarian cancer at twenty-three, Bri. Maya was given two months to live. Her doctors’ advice: die painlessly with heavy dosages of morphine. Instead, in the middle of winter, she left her career as a popular fashion designer in New York City and began several months of intensive meditation and holistic nutrition alone in a remote Vermont cabin. By Spring, her health and vitality had been restored. Inspired by dramatic visions and dreams of her family and ancestors, Bri. Maya became a student of one of India’s few living masters of the traditional Vedas. Today, healthy in body and spirit, she devotes herself to teaching the wisdom practices of the Vedas to help others heal emotional and spiritual discomfort, dis-ease, and physical illness. In The Path of Practice, Bri. Maya’s gentle, compassionate voice instructs you in living life consciously in the present moment, so that you can recover your natural rhythms and align yourself and your inner cycles with the universe. With particular emphasis on using the primordial feminine healing power of shakti—which everyone possesses—Bri. Maya leads you through the daily practice, or sadhana, of a three-part wellness program that includes nutrition and cooking with whole foods, breath work and meditation, and chanting with healing sounds. Encouraged by the inspirational stories of Bri. Maya’s life and those of others who have made these simple but powerful practices an integral part of their lives, you will learn how to take charge of your own health. Through Bri. Maya’s unique philosophy and practice of “cosmic memory,” you will discover your personal, body wisdom and intuition, your singular mission in the world, and your connection to the divine within you and around you. Filled with illuminating insights, easy-to-follow recipes, and meditations and exercises that can be adapted to different lifestyles and traditions, The Path of Practice is one of the only holistic programs designed for women by a woman. Imbued with the spiritual strength and centeredness of its remarkable author, here is a practical and profound book you will turn to time and time again for instruction, wisdom, and peace of mind.
