Introduction: Earl Hopper and Haim Weinberg

Slice ePub May 23, 2014
<p> <i>Earl Hopper and Haim Weinberg</i> </p><p>In this Introduction we outline the development of the concept of the social unconscious, and identify several of the current areas of interest in it. We believe that the study of the social unconscious is at the heart of the group analytic project, which continues to change and to develop.</p><p> <i>I</i> </p><p>Before Freud, the notion of the unconscious mind was often used by philosophers such as Spinoza, Leibniz, Schopenhauer, and Nietzsche. For them, the “unconscious mind” referred to perceptions, thoughts, feelings, and sensations that, at any given time, are outside the field of consciousness. Working within this tradition, but at the same time attempting to break free from it, Freud developed a topographical model of the personality in which psychic life could be represented in terms of three levels of consciousness: the conscious, the preconscious, and the unconscious, including the non-conscious. As a noun, “unconscious” referred to mental or psychic processes, phenomena, and structures that occur or exist in the absence of conscious awareness; as a verb, it referred to the action of making or having made these processes and phenomena, and structures unconscious, in the sense of suppressing, repressing and/or splitting off, as an adjective and/or adverb, unconscious referred to the fact that such psychic processes, phenomena, and structures are outside and/or have been put outside a person’s conscious awareness. It was assumed that the unconscious is a matter of degree, and not a permanent condition. It was also assumed that, in one way or another, the unconscious originates within the human body and in the human species.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/243356-the-social-unconscious-in-persons-groups-and-societies-mainly-theory">See more</a>

Appendix: Competences in Business Coaching

There is considerable consistency among these professional bodies with respect to the skills and competences required for a coach, although coaching competences are yet to be empirically validated. Based on studies to date, these bodies recommend specific core competences to build your capacity as a coach.</p><p> <i>International Coach Federation (ICF)</i> </p><p>The ICF has definitions and related behaviours for each competency, distinguishing between behaviours that should always be present and visible and those that are called for only in certain coaching situations. The 11 competences are listed below in their four groupings, with the related behaviours omitted for the sake of clarity (ICF, 2008a:1–3):</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/615311-business-coaching-international">See more</a>

American Wilderness: A System Like No Other

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>On September 3, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the act that created the National Wilderness Preservation System. It had taken eight years and 66 drafts to get the legislation passed. The Wilderness Act established 54 Wilderness Areas in National Forests in 13 states. This act, written by Howard Zahniser of the Wilderness Society, declared that “A wilderness, in contrast with those areas where man and his own works dominate the landscape, is hereby recognized as an area where the earth and community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain.”</p><p>I believe the idea of wilderness is one of the great inventions of the 20th century. This was the first time in the history of the United States that a government acted on the realization that some land needed to be protected from development and left alone. Up until that time, most U.S. laws were enacted to encourage development and the use of natural resources. There are a few examples from world history going back to the Babylonian and Chinese Empires where natural areas were protected, but the Wilderness Act is significant in the context of the 200 years of the Industrial Revolution that preceded it. The Act signified that a powerful, industrialized country like the United States had realized the need to set limits to expansion and growth.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/606690-our-beautiful-fragile-world-the-nature-and-environmental-photographs-of-peter-essick">See more</a>

Redirecting from an asynchronous postback

Slice PDF May 27, 2014
<p>Protected Sub ButtonClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal args As EventArgs)</p><p>Dim btn As Button = CType(sender, Button) btn.Text = "Clicked"</p><p>CType(btn.NamingContainer.FindControl("ColorLabel"), Label).Text = _</p><p>"Repeated panel updated at: " & DateTime.Now.ToLongTimeString()</p><p>End Sub</p><p>And replace the ColorLabel control with the following:</p><p><asp:Label runat="server" ID="ColorLabel"</p><p>BackColor='<%#</p><p>TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(GetType(System.Drawing.Color)).ConvertFromString(Eval("val ue")) %>'</p><p>Text='<%# Eval("name") %>' /></p><p>One caveat of this approach is that if the UpdatePanel that triggered the asynchronous postback is destroyed and recreated, ASP.NET Ajax may lose track of it and the panel may not get updated. This can happen for example if the click event handler for the button calls DataBind() on the DataList control.</p><p>Redirecting from an asynchronous postback</p><p>It is quite common to use Response.Redirect from an event handler to redirect the user's browser to a different page. This scenario is supported from asynchronous postbacks too. In this case, the redirect will use client-side JavaScript to execute instead of the redirect headers that are used in the case of synchronous postbacks.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362796-asp-net-ajax-updatepanel-control">See more</a>
