The Department of Health has issued a new code of practice on confidentiality. Although the guidelines cover many aspects of confidentiality that counsellors and psychotherapists might feel part of their standard practice, they are now being made explicit in the document. It is stated that the code is also relevant to anyone working in the health area, including those working in the private and voluntary sectors. However, all those working within the confines of the NHS need to establish the working practices of confidentiality that are required by law, ethics, and policy. In particular, it emphasizes that the public
█ understand the reasons for processing personal infor-
█ give their consent for its disclosure;
█ trust the way the NHS handles their information;
█ understand their rights to access information held about them.
The document points out that confidentiality is a legal obligation derived from case law, that it is already established within professional codes of conduct, and now must be included within all NHS contracts as a specific requirement linked to disciplinary procedures. Where organizational procedures are not in place to facilitate this requirement, staff have to show that they are working within the spirit of this code and making every effort to comply with it.See All Chapters

The Bible has two different accounts of creation—the first in Genesis 1:1–2:4a, and the second in Genesis 2:4b–25. Stretching the imagination a bit, we could even find a third creation account in the Book of Job, starting in chapter 38, when God interrogates Job, saying, “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?” And then God goes into all the elements of nature that he created—which is done in an alternation of “Who has. . . ?” and “Have you . . . ?” In the process, Job’s stature grows smaller and smaller. And Psalm 104 praises God’s creation: “O LORD, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you have made them all. . . . When you send forth your spirit, they are created; and you renew the face of the earth.” Doesn’t that sound like creation in the making, or creation in action? Somehow the Bible is telling us there are many ways of looking at creation.
Let’s begin with a brief summary of Genesis 1. It relates a clear message: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” From the first two verses, however, it isn’t clear whether God created space and time out of nothing (as verse 1 suggests) or out of the chaos of primordial waters (as verse 2 suggests, with the Spirit of God hovering over the waters). The Catholic teaching speaks of creation out of nothing (ex nihilo1) and takes verse 2 as the next step.See All Chapters

In this age of diet fads and fast foods, the best eating plan may be the oldest. In Biblical times, people lived on whole grains, fruits, nuts, greens, legumes, and olive oil, only consuming small amounts of animal protein. Their diet was filled with fiber, lean protein, antioxidants, phytochemicals, and phytonutrients, and was low in fat, sodium, and cholesterol.
A diet that contains plenty of phytochemicals can help prevent heart disease and cancer, reduce blood pressure, and slow the effects of aging. These naturally occurring compounds lay an antioxidant-rich foundation that’s inhospitable to toxins, free radicals, and other stressors. Moreover, they help to eliminate free radicals that damage our DNA, the source of healing and intelligence in the body.
Can eating vegetables promote healing and prolong your life? Many mainstream scientists think so. Experts are now convinced that the right dietary choices can extend life span and keep us younger, healthier, and stronger as we go through life.See All Chapters

Frustrated with the results of his summative assessment on the Revolutionary War, Mr. Creighton was looking for new ways to help his students learn. Under immense pressure to meet adequate yearly progress, Mr. Creighton and his colleagues were working tremendously hard. When so many of his students failed the unit test, he was quite discouraged, as were his students.
After examining the assessment, it became clear that the majority of the items on the test were at a knowledge or recall level in which students were asked to identify the causes of the Revolutionary War and explain how and why the colonies fought for their independence. Each of these topics was discussed at length during class, and the test asked students to recall those discussions in multiple-choice and short-answer questions. The test should have been a slam-dunk for students as the instruction—lectures and discussions—all addressed these concepts.
In response to a professional development training focused on defining learning with a focus on high expectations, Mr. Creighton constructed the next test at a much higher level, with questions that asked students to contemplate specific situations and consider how the law might be applied in response. While some items were simple, such as identifying the branches of government and their functions, the majority of the test incorporated more complex tasks that required students to discuss the role each branch might play in authentic scenarios.See All Chapters
