11. Breaking Down is Waking Up Can Psychological Suffering be a Spiritual Gateway? (16pt Large Print Edition) - Russell Razzaque

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 27.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

This book explores an entirely new way of understanding psychological and mental distress based on Dr Razzaque's work as a consultant psychiatrist together with the insights he has gained as a regular practitioner of meditation. His extraordinary conclusion: mental illness can also be a form of spiritual awakening. Dr Razzaque provides evidence for this from a range of sources including direct clinical case material from his work in acute mental health services to the latest findings from neuroscience and the insights of meditative traditions. The book describes new forms of treatment for mental illness inspired by Eastern approaches and centering, in particular, around practices such as mindfulness. These therapies offer both patients and their families the inspiring idea that the approach to their psychological difficulties should go beyond just ''treating'' episodes of mental illness but also, where possible, help the individual to complete the process of spiritual growth they have begun. Dr Razzaque argues passionately that our society as a whole could benefit from developing an awareness of the spiritual power of this process of transformation. Written in the tradition of the bestselling insights of neuroscientist Eben Alexander and therapists Irvin D. Yalom and Oliver Sacks, Breaking Down is Waking Up, will speak to both professionals in the field of mental health as well as those suffering from mental illness, their family and friends and, indeed, all those who have an interest in exploring the deepest layers of what it really means to be human.

12. Building Science, Technology and Innovation Systems in Africa Experiences from the Maghreb - Abdelkader Djeflat

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 25.00  - Click book title for availability and further details

The book discusses the policies and strategies for Science and Technology (S&T) and Innovation capability building put up by the Maghreb states (Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco) in the last three decades. The application of structural adjustment programmes (SAPs) in recent years, the opening up of their economies and liberalisation of trade have confronted their firms with largely innovation-based competition and attempts to reduce the impact of this are far from effective, particularly under the era of knowledge economy and sustainability requirements. The work is articulated around three major themes: the difficult path to S&T capacity building, the attempts to put up National Innovation Systems (NIS) and the prospects of a more innovation-driven growth at the territorial level, notably through intermediate institutions and science and technology poles. While pointing out the difficulties of building NIS, the book examines how the context of an innovation-driven competition put local firms, especially SMEs, in a difficult position. It notes that the universities, which are prone to internal politics and rent-seeking, are not producing the necessary human capital. The knowledge economy era challenges raise some hopes for better access to innovation and knowledge assets in the world while at the territorial level new innovation dynamics are taking place. Based on extensive research and consultancy work done on the analysis of policies in the Maghreb, the book also raises the issue of the neighborhood of the European Union and argues that unless Europe integrates the Maghreb into a real neighborhood Innovation System, the prospects for innovation take-off in the region are limited.

20. Brilliance by Design Creating Learning Experiences That Connect, Inspire, and Engage (Large Print 16pt) - Vicki Halsey

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Many subject matter experts are just that, subject matter experts - not experts in the art of teaching, facilitating, or designing. Thousands of authors, trainers, and speakers have great content, but they lack the skills required to convey their content in a way that inspires learners to unleash their brilliance and move the learning to practice.. They often spend 70% of their time on WHAT they are going to teach, and 30% of their time on HOW, when they should be spending 30% on WHAT, and 70% on HOW. Their instructional techniques often are at odds with their message of inclusivity, eagerness for people to learn, and hopes that their content will change lives and organizations. ''Brilliance by Design'' outlines how to design learning interactions (such as meetings and workshops) that enable people to do their best thinking. Using the tested, signature ENGAGE model, it helps anyone who brings people together for the purpose of learning, problem - solving, or innovating to develop a clear, high - impact training design that unleashes brilliance. It presents a model that enables teachers to analyze learner and teacher needs, create objectives that meet those needs, and incorporate interactive tools that ''fire 'em up,'' ensuring all key outcomes are met. To help readers unleash the brilliance in others, this book provides the structure, tools, language, and models needed to create optimal learning experiences from their ideas, practices, models and books. In learning these techniques, readers will achieve powerful outcomes, building communities of learners who share best practices and communicate at a deep and profound level while doing real work.
