5. Inheritance and Polymorphism

Jesse Liberty O'Reilly Media ePub

The preceding chapter demonstrated how to create new types by declaring classes. This chapter explores the relationship between objects in the real world and how to model these relationships in your code. This chapter focuses on specialization, which is implemented in C# through inheritance. This chapter also explains how instances of more specialized types can be treated as though they were instances of more general types, a process known as polymorphism. This chapter ends with a consideration of sealed classes, which can't be specialized; abstract classes, which exist only to be specialized; and the root of all classes, the Object type.

VB 6 programmers take note: like VB.NET, C# provides full object-oriented technology, including inheritance, polymorphism, and encapsulation. These are relatively new topics for VB 6 programmers. You should study them carefully; they affect your class and application design.

Classes and their instances (objects) don't exist in a vacuum, but rather in a network of interdependencies and relationships, just as we, as social animals, live in a world of relationships and categories.

Chapter 6 Finally! Identify Specific Job Titles

Laurence Shatkin JIST Publishing ePub

By now you should have a better sense of your skills, interests, work values, and other key elements of your ideal career. Keep those factors in mind as you review the job descriptions in this chapter.

This chapter is designed to give you a good idea of what sort of job you want in terms of a job title. It is the longest chapter in the book and describes more than 288 major job titles, including their education or training required, skill levels, earnings, growth, and other details to help you make a good decision. Although this chapter is long, don’t worry. You won’t need to read it all.

Note: You may have expected this chapter at the beginning of the book, but saving the job titles until now is a strategy to shake you out of the conventional approach that focuses narrowly on job titles. That narrow focus causes people to overlook far more important matters for their longterm career satisfaction and success.

You have identified your interests and learned about other factors to consider in your career choice. But how can you identify specific jobs that would be best for you? Will they require more training or education? What do they pay? Do they offer good employment opportunities?

10. The Transition from an Institution to a Family

Mary Boston Karnac Books ePub

Rolene Szur

Most of the children who have been described were living in small children’s homes when they began attending for psychotherapy and most of them showed considerable improvements in behaviour which could be linked to the sometimes stormy course of the work with them. In some instances therapy seemed to have helped in preventing a threatened breakdown of fostering, as was the case with Katy. In a number of others improvement occurring during the course of psychotherapy proved to be a crucial factor in enabling the child either to move into foster-care, or, as in the case of Tom, to return to his own family.

Increasingly at the present time there is a trend away from children’s homes and institutional care, and towards looking for fostering placements or, more hopefully, for adoption. The skills of social workers and others in finding suitable families to match the needs of individual children will play an essential part in this process. Even with the best arrangements, however, the family and the child may need help in adapting to one another and in establishing bonds of feeling and understanding which can provide a basis for healthy growth on both sides (see Chapters 13 and 14).
