Multicultural Assessment: Principles, Applications, and by Richard H. Dana

By Richard H. Dana

Psychologists in the course of the global are being requested to evaluate an more and more diversified purchasers: immigrants, refugees, moment and 3rd generations nonetheless encouraged by means of diverse cultures and languages, and indigenous peoples now relocating in the direction of the mainstream. so much are ill-equipped by way of education and adventure to appreciate, determine, and therefore deal with such consumers safely and ethically. almost all agree at the desire for culture-sensitive overview, however it has confirmed tough to supply enough prone, regardless of strong intentions and investment. Too usually, consumers who can have various worldview and health-illness ideals are marginalized.

For many purposes, common review tools designed, researched, and normed on a couple of teams within the United States--the MMPI-2, the Rorschach, and the TAT--are used as if they have been universally acceptable. such a lot busy practitioners have little time to enquire possible choices built to be used with one new workforce or one other, taken with one factor or one other, mostly in a learn context.

In this ebook, Richard Dana proposes a brand new version of multicultural review perform and issues instructions for destiny education and study. He offers basic, culture-specific, and step by step instrument-specific guidance for using the normal armamentarium with assorted teams. all through, he highlights fascinating new interpretive percentages the conventional exams provide that are meant to be usually exploited, yet emphasizes the significance of spotting psychometric limits. 4 prolonged examples of using one or numerous tools with a selected staff supply concrete illustrations of the version in action.

Julian by Robert Charles Wilson

By Robert Charles Wilson

Apostat. Fugitif. Conquérant.
Il s'appelle Julian Comstock ; il est le neveu du président des Etats-Unis.
Son père, le général Bryce Comstock, a été pendu pour trahison (on murmure qu'il était blameless de ce crime).
Julian est né dans une Amérique à jamais privée de pétrole, une Amérique étendue à soixante états, tenue de major de maître par l'église du Dominion. Un can pay en ruine, exsangue, en guerre au Labrador contre les forces mitteleuropéennes, pour les dernières ressources naturelles.
On le connaît désormais sous le nom de Julian l'agnostique ou (comme son oncle) de Julian le Conquérant.
Ceci est l'histoire de ce qu'il a cru bon et juste, l'histoire de ses victoires et défaites, militaires et politiques.

Fresque post-apocalyptique, western du XXIIe siècle, fulgurant hommage à Mark Twain, Julian est le plus atypique des romans de Robert Charles Wilson. Une réussite majeure et une critique sans concession des politiques environnementales actuelles.

Welded Design: Theory and Practice by J Hicks

By J Hicks

Welded layout is frequently regarded as a space during which there is plenty of perform yet little idea. Welded layout has a tendency to be ignored in engineering classes and plenty of engineering scholars and engineers locate fabrics and metallurgy complex matters. Engineering judgements on the layout degree have to take account of the houses of a fabric – if those judgements are mistaken disasters or even catastrophes may result. Many engineering catastrophes have their origins within the use of inappropriate or invalid tools of study, incomplete details or the inability of figuring out of fabric behaviour.

The job of engineering layout calls at the wisdom of quite a few engineering disciplines. along with his huge engineering history and gathered wisdom, John Hicks is ready to convey how a talented engineer may perhaps use fabrics in a good and monetary approach and make judgements at the desire for the location of joints, be they everlasting or transitority, among related and diverse materials.

This e-book presents working towards engineers, lecturers and scholars with the mandatory heritage to welding strategies and strategies of layout hired in welded fabrication. It explains how layout practices are derived from experimental and theoretical reviews to supply useful and fiscal fabrication.

  • Provides professional details on a subject matter usually passed over from engineering courses
  • Explains why yes tools are used, and in addition offers examples of often played calculations and derivation of data.

By Yoshio Waseda, Shigeru Suzuki

This e-book describes the elemental features of fabrics characterization for the ferric oxyhydroxides shaped on metal surfaces. chosen examples, from either the fundamental technology and the utilized engineering issues of view, are offered. Of particular curiosity is the recent structural info on ferric oxyhydroxides containing a small quantity of alloying components. The textual content relates this to their quite a few states and their function in corrosion processes.
