CHAPTER TWO. A clinical foundation for supervisory practices

Slice ePub May 22, 2014
<p>To fulfil the promises of this book, we must establish a sound theoretical and clinical basis for the definition of effective and validated supervisory interventions and the underlying principles that support their use. To do this, we must redefine the parameters of supervision in light of recent insights into the nature of conscious and especially unconscious communication and processes, and make use of our newly acquired understanding of the evolved architecture and adaptive resources of the emotion-processing mind (Langs, 1986, 1987a, 1987b, 1988, 1989, 1992a, 1992c, 1992e, 1993a, 1993b, in press b, in press c). Let us turn to these tasks at once.</p><p> <i>SOME BACKGROUND ISSUES</i> </p><p>As Goodheart (1992, 1993) has cogently argued, psychoanalysis is a folk psychology that operates via global observations and draws general conclusions in the form of broad, high-level theoretical constructs that lead to rather uncertain technical precepts for the conduct of a psychotherapy—and its supervision. We are not surprised, then, that writings on principles of supervision are scarce and that there is no consensus as to how supervision should be carried out — and no validated precepts of supervisory practice. Teach as you were taught and were analysed is the credo — a simple, down-to-earth approach that lacks guiding discipline or structure.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/249657-doing-supervision-and-being-supervised">See more</a>

5.07 Death and the Maiden

Slice ePub December 09, 2014
<p> <em>Amara: I’ve been in hell for 2,000 years.</em> </p><p> <em>Damon: What’s another five minutes?</em> </p><p> <em>Amara: Let me die.</em> </p><p>5.07 Death and the Maiden</p><p>Original air date November 14, 2013</p><p>Written by Rebecca Sonnenshine Directed by Leslie Libman</p><p>Edited by Tony Solomons Cinematography by Darren Genet</p><p>Guest cast Autumn Dial (Doppelgänger Acting Double), Elizabeth Faith Ludlow (Girl), Brady McInnes (Guy)</p><p>Previously on The Vampire Diaries Paul Wesley</p><p> <em>Doppelgängers assemble.</em> </p><p>For an episode with some heavy storylines and a high death count, “Death and the Maiden” is a heck of a lot of fun, thanks to bonus Ninas and Pauls, more Katherine and Caroline moments, and the triumphant last moments of two bitter-to-the-end badasses.</p><p>If there’s a thin line between love and hate, Tessa has spent two millennia balancing on it, protest as she may that she no longer loves Silas. Her ability to “let go, move on” (as Lexi advised Stefan in the season four finale) is less than zero, but she more than makes up for that lack with her snark, her ferocity, and her dedication to triumphing over Silas and Amara, and by extension the doppelgänger-loving universe that she believes conspires against her interests. Faced with the pain of Silas and Amara’s betrayal all those centuries ago, Tessa turned to bloody vengeance and never looked back. Her suffering at their hands was delivered many-fold upon them: for 2,000 years, Silas was trapped in a tomb, starving save for drips of blood, while Amara (getting the short end of the stick) was encased in stone, trapped, and subjected to the pain of every dying supernatural creature. (From that perspective, Stefan’s three months of drowning does sorta pale.)</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/797782-love-you-to-death-season-5">See more</a>

10. Querying RDF: RDF as Data

Source: Practical RDF
Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>RDF as a model for metadata and RDF/XML as a way of serializing the model are interesting, but the power of the specifications lies in our ability to access the data easily, using techniques we're familiar with from other data models, such as the relational data model discussed in Chapter 6.</p><p>It is only natural that techniques used for one data model should be adapted for use with another; so the method for accessing the relational data model, Structured Query Language (SQL), is used in a similar manner with RDF/XML through language techniques such as SquishQL, RDQL, RQL, and others.</p><p>Many of the query languages and schemas mentioned in this chapter are also covered in an online document at In addition, if your interest is more inclined to RDF as data (or to the more logical side of RDF), check out the <em>www-rdf-rules</em> discussion list at</p><p> RDF and the relational data model are both metadata models, so it's natural to want to see how the one can work with the other. Stanford took a look at different designs of tables for storing RDF data in an online paper located at With some differences based on data types and the ability to store multiple models, most of the schemas demonstrated were basically the samestore the model as triples, with or without support for additional information such as namespace or model identifier.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/364009-practical-rdf">See more</a>

7. Return to the imperative: an ethical implication of psychoanalytic findings (1965)

Slice ePub May 23, 2014
<p> <i>The author describes how “laws’ of psychic reality with an ethical significance have to be differentiated from the “moral” implication of discoveries about the structure and function of the superego.</i> </p><p>But If the word “this” Is to apply, as it should, to something that we directly experience, it cannot apply to the cat as an object In the outer world, but only to our own percept of a cat. Thus we must not say “this is a cat”, but “this is a percept such as we associate with cat”, or “this is a cat percept”. This phase, in turn, can be replaced by “I am cat-perceptive.</p><p>Bertrand Russell, “An Inquiry into Meaning and Truth”, 1940</p><p>I start this paper with Lord Russell’s statement for two reasons. First of all. It succinctly states that “egocentric particulars”, as he calls such words as I, this, now, etc., are utilized to introduce statements about what Freud called. The perception of psychic qualities’, in his definition of the function of consciousness. The second reason is because of the interesting shifts from the subjunctive to the imperative mode of speech that take place as soon as he utilizes an egocentric particular himself. While it is “If the word this is … tt <i>cannot </i>…” to begin with, suddenly we hear that “we must not” …”. Also note that it is “we” who “must” use egocentric particulars correctly, meaning that if <i>I </i>use them as statements of self-observation and you use them “intend(ing) to make a statement about something which is <i>not </i>merely a part of (your) own biography …”, we will not understand one another.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/249653-sincerity-and-other-works-the-collected-papers-of-donald-meltzer">See more</a>

54. Growth Factors and Signals: Impact on Neurological Systems

Slice ePub March 06, 2015
<p>CHAPTER 54</p><p>Growth Factors and Signals: Impact on Neurological Systems</p><p>Douglas W. Zochodne</p><p>Recognition of the central and peripheral nervous systems (CNS and PNS) as plastic and dynamic has led to hope that specific growth factors or their downstream signaling cascades might protect the nervous system from disease, resurrect impaired connections or support alternative pathways providing similar function. Advances in the understanding of growth factors and growth signals have identified several critical concepts. The first of these is the realization that, hitherto, systems, including motor systems, previously thought of as static in adults have surprising responsiveness following injury. The second concept is that a number of the growth factors are elaborated by targets or glial cells to signal the growth cone or cell body, either locally or at a distance. A third concept followed the important discovery that led to the recognition that growth factors can be synthesized by neurons and act on themselves by autocrine signaling. Fourth, is the recognition that growth factors have tremendous redundancy in their actions, frequently sharing common downstream signaling cascades. Exploiting these downstream pathways may allow direct manipulation of neuronal growth. While absence of a given factor or its receptor may render severe developmental deficits, in many instances loss can be compensated for by the actions of other factors.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/776320-motor-disorders-third-edition">See more</a>
