A guide to the recognition and management of mental health problems in refugees and other displaced persons. Prepared by WHO in collaboration with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the manual responds to growing awareness that the trauma, terror, loss and bereavement experienced by refugees can pose serious threats to their mental health. With this concern in mind, the manual aims to help non-specialist relief workers become alert to common mental health problems and competent in their management, whether involving simple relaxation exercises or referral to a medical specialist. The first training unit explains the basic principles of effective communication and sets out the steps to follow when developing a treatment plan. In view of the stress commonly experienced by refugees, the second unit describes several simple exercises that can help people relax, sleep better, and cope with stress. Functional complaints are covered in unit three, which includes advice on the difficult question of when to give medicines. Unit four provides a detailed guide to the recognition and management of common mental disorders. The most extensive chapter describes the special needs of refugee children, explains how to recognize their distinct mental health problems, and discusses the most appropriate types of help according to four age groups. Subsequent units offer guidance on the types of mental disorders that can be safely treated by traditional healers, and explain how to recognize and manage alcohol and other drug problems. The remaining units outline approaches for helping people who have experienced torture, other violence, or rape.
This new edition of John Horgan's critically acclaimed book is fully revised and expanded. The book presents a critical analysis of our existing knowledge and understanding of terrorist psychology. Despite the on-going search for a terrorist pathology, the most insightful and evidence-based research to date not only illustrates the lack of any identifiable psychopathology in terrorists, but demonstrates how frighteningly 'normal' and unremarkable in psychological terms are those who engage in terrorist activity. By producing a clearer map of the processes that impinge upon the individual terrorist, a different type of terrorist psychology emerges, one which has clearer implications for efforts at countering and disrupting violent extremism in today's world. In this 2nd edition, Horgan further develops his approach to the arc of terrorism by delving deeper into his IED model of Involvement, Engagement and Disengagement – the three phases of terrorism experienced by every single terrorist. Drawing on new and exciting research from the past decade, with new details from interviews with terrorists ranging from al-Qaeda to left-wing revolutionaries, biographies and autobiographies of former terrorists, and insights from historic and contemporary terrorist attacks since 2005, Horgan presents a fully revised and expanded edition of his signature text. This new edition of The Psychology of Terrorism will be essential reading for students of terrorism and political violence, and counterterrorism studies, and recommended for forensic psychology, criminology, international security and IR in general.

Self-Science is a curriculum and a process for teaching social and emotional skills. It is a flexible framework where students do activities, or experiments, that lead to discussion and learning. The students' own experiences, concerns, and questions drive the content, so the process works with people from all kinds of backgrounds, all ages, an all levels. Self-Science fuses cognitive and affective learning: students build feeling and thinking skills at the same time.Rather than telling children what not to do, Self-Science provides multiple options of what to do. It helps children become more aware of themselves and make more conscious decisions about the ways they think, feel, and act independently and interdependently. Nationally and internationally, parents and teachers are increasingly concerned about school culture and emotional intelligence competencies. Issues of exclusion, violence, depression, and under achievement are all addressed within this preventative, comprehensive program.Self-Science -- so named because emotional intelligence grows from the study of ourselves and our relationships -- is one of the few comprehensive, developmental, and research-based curricula for creating a school-wide culture of emotional intelligence. The Self-Science program creates a fundamental shift in the structure of the school toward collaboration, inclusion, and humanism.Part of the power of Self-Science is its flexibility. Once a facilitator understands how a lesson flows, she or he can easily adapt any current topics, other exercises, and even academic subject matter into the lessons. In addition, Self-Science can be taught as a "stand-alone" class or folded into existing programs such as class meetings, advisory, life-skills, or community service.

America's most renowned social philosopher John Dewey shines his powerful intellect on the serious public and cultural issues surrounding the place of the individual in a technologically advanced society. In this penetrating study, he addresses the fear that personal creative potential will be trampled by assembly-line monotony, political bureaucracy, and an industrialized culture of uniformity. Armed with his pragmatic approach and his belief in the power of critical intelligence, Dewey argues that individualism has in fact been offered a uniquely higher plane of technological development upon which to grow, mature, and redefine itself.John Dewey (1859-1952) authored more than two dozen books and scores of articles in both scholarly and popular publications. He rightly deserves the title of America's foremost philosopher and his work will influence intellectuals throughout the world for many years to come.
