Bahuichivo & Cerocahui

Slice ePub May 25, 2014
<p> Bahuichivo Station, above, serves the colonial villages of Cerocahui, home to about 1,500 residents, and Urique, a little closer to the south end of the canyon. Cerocahui is about six miles/10 km from the train station; the road is mud. The owners of Paraiso del Oso will take you to their hotel if you let them know ahead of time, and a bus that meets the train goes down to the village if you would rather look around town for other accommodations. </p><p> Cerocahui is a tiny mission town with little to do except take a trip to Cerro Gallego overlooking Urique Canyon, walk/ride to the waterfall for a day trip or take a horse/hiking tour down to the mining town of Urique. Cerocahui has a colonial church and is one of the oldest communities in the mountains. </p><p> A hike along Urique River takes you down the canyon 5,500 feet/1,800meters and then, at the end of the day, back up again. Since the town sits on the rim of the canyon, you need to walk to the rim from your hotel and take any of the trails going down; they all join before long, and you can't get lost. Along the way are the remains of an old mining site where gold, silver and copper were once extracted. There is also a colonial house, a cemetery and a church. This hike takes approximately 10 hours to complete. Water should be carried. </p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/615477-northern-pacific-mexico-guaymas-the-copper-canyon-beyond">See more</a>

Chapter 14: Appealing to the People Who Can Hire You

Slice ePub May 28, 2014
<p>From the very beginning of this book, I’ve talked about meeting the needs of three distinct audiences: executive recruiters, human resources representatives, and hiring managers. Let’s examine the motivators and preferences of each of these authorities so that you’ll understand and appeal to the needs of these people who are so influential in your job search.</p><p>Executive recruiters (sometimes called headhunters) are of two types, differentiated by how they are compensated by their clients:</p><p>♦ <strong>Contingent recruiters:</strong> As the name implies, the fees these placement professionals earn are contingent upon successfully placing a candidate with their client, the hiring company. Because there is no risk and some advantage to having more than one contingent recruiter working to fill a specific position, hiring companies sometimes assign a search to more than one search firm. The recruiter works quickly and aggressively to identify candidates, fill the position, earn the commission, and move on to the next assignment. Of course, the recruiter strives to generate repeat business by delivering good candidates and building positive relationships with HR people and hiring managers.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362629-sales-and-marketing-resumes-for-100-000-careers">See more</a>

4. Death issues in the clinical situation

Slice ePub May 22, 2014
<p>To sharpen the clinical sense of how death issues materialize in and affect the course of a psychotherapy experience, I turn now to a brief clinical excerpt.</p><p>Dr Denton is a male psychotherapist who works within a psychoanalytic framework. His patient, Mrs Peters, is a woman in her mid-thirties who came to therapy for repeated episodes of depression.</p><p>A year into the therapy and three weeks before Dr Denton was due to take a month off for his summer vacation, Mrs Peters suffered and described in her session several recent traumatic incidents. Her father had fallen ill with a serious heart attack; he was in the hospital and near death, but surviving. There had been bitter arguments with her husband because he had had to travel for business and the patient felt deserted at her time of need. The patient was also distressed because her 14-year-old daughter had been out late, and the patient had fantasied that she had been killed in a car accident. When her daughter finally returned home, Mrs Peters, with uncharacteristic loss of control, had hit her daughter rather severely.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/251868-death-anxiety-and-clinical-practice">See more</a>

7. Some developmental trajectories towards homosexuality, transvestism, and transsexualism: mental health implications:

Slice ePub May 22, 2014
<p> <i>Fiona Tasker</i> </p><p>During their adolescent years, young persons’ increasing awareness of erotic attraction, together with their increasing interpersonal sexual experience, raises profound questions concerning the formation of sexual identity. Although sexual identity may be questioned at any point in the life-course, the initial formation during adolescence sets the stage on which later revisions are undertaken. For young people who experience only heterosexual attractions, fantasies, and sexual encounters, how to assimilate these into easily accessible mainstream cultural scripts of sexual behaviour is at least clear, although this process is rarely achieved without some anguish and guilt. In contrast, positive images of lesbian and gay relationships are rarely portrayed in mainstream culture, and young people who have homosexual attractions, fantasies, and sexual encounters may find that their experiences are ignored or at worst regarded negatively. Thus, integrating same-gender sexual experience into the sexual self-image can present a significant challenge to self-esteem and mental well-being.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/251859-a-stranger-in-my-own-body-atypical-gender-identity-development-and-mental-health">See more</a>
