CHAPTER FIVE: Supervision and general practice: towards a reflecting position

Sue Blake Karnac Books ePub

Sara Barratt

I work as a systemic psychotherapist in general practice. Over many years, I have developed different ways of working with my medically trained colleagues, often based on the concept of supervision. For systemic therapists, supervision is a familiar part of training, even though the opportunities for live supervision may dwindle as trained staff members are employed in secondary services. For doctors, neither live nor reported supervision are part of the accepted working practice. In addition, the word “super-vision”—especially among doctors—often implies a higher level of knowledge. I therefore prefer to think of supervision in terms of professional collaboration. Collaborative work in general practice—between therapist, GP, and client—can over time provide an added dimension to the relationship between doctor and patient. Rolland (1998) and Blount and Bayona (1994) emphasize the importance of interdisciplinary teams working collaboratively to generate new descriptions for patients in their cultural and life contexts, stressing the importance for patients of integrating the psychosocial and biological aspects of their lives. Collaborating by generating different perspectives on which the patient has the opportunity to comment provides the opportunity for profession-72

12. Repository Management

Loeliger, Jon O'Reilly Media ePub

This chapter presents two approaches to managing and publishing repositories for cooperative development. One approach centralizes the repository; the other distributes the repository. Each solution has its place, and which is right for you and your project depends on your requirements and philosophy.

However, no matter which approach you adopt, Git implements a distributed development model. For example, even if your team centralizes the repository, each developer has a complete, private copy of the repository and can work independently. The work is distributed, albeit coordinated through a central, shared repository. The repository model and the development model are orthogonal characteristics.

Some version control systems use a centralized server to maintain a repository. In this model, every developer is a client of the server, which maintains the authoritative version of the repository. Given the servers jurisdiction, almost every versioning operation must contact the server to obtain or update repository information. Thus, for two developers to share data, all information must pass through the centralized server; no direct sharing of data between developers is possible.

Abstract - Computer games, predominantly a form of interactive entertainment, are having some success being repurposed for educational use. However, this approach is hindered by the lack of availability of experience in serious games tools. Much research is already underway to address this challenge, with some who choose to use readily available commercial-off-the-shelf games and others attempted to develop serious games in-house or collaboratively with industry expertise. These approaches present issues including educational appropriateness of the serious game content and its activities, reliability of serious games developed and the

(often high) financial cost involved. Developments in software engineering that enable automatic generation of software artefacts through modelling or Model Driven Engineering

PowerShell breaks any line that you enter into its individual units (tokens), and then interprets each token in one of two ways: as a command or as an expression. The difference is subtle: expressions support logic and flow control statements (such as if, foreach, and throw), whereas commands do not.

You will often want to control the way that Windows PowerShell interprets your statements, so TableA-1 lists the options available to you.

TableA-1.Windows PowerShell evaluation controls




Precedence control: ()

Forces the evaluation of a command or expression, similar to the way that parentheses are used to force the order of evaluation in a mathematical expression.

Expression subparse: $()

Forces the evaluation of a command or expression, similar to the way that parentheses are used to force the order of evaluation in a mathematical expression.

However, a subparse is as powerful as a subprogram and is required only when the subprogram contains logic or flow control statements.
