Everything you need to know in a condensed and structured independent study guide specifically designed to prepare you in successfully passing the National Licensing Exam in Marital and Family Therapy. This innovative approach to effective and efficient preparation is tailored to the new format of the National Exam which is now far more application based than knowledge based. As other manuals contain up to 1,200 pages of text covering the entire field of Family Therapy in great detail, this author has condensed the same information down to the bare essentials of what is needed to pass the exam. This is not meant to serve as a thorough review of everything you already learned in graduate school; instead, it will review such knowledge in ways congruent to what the exam will measure. The philosophy of this manual was to teach you how to pass the exam as opposed to reviewing the textbook. The context contains a review of each primary theory to Marriage & Family Therapy as organized by the knowledge domains stated by the Association for Marital & Family Therapy Regulatory Board. To further grasp how these theories are applied to families (keeping in line with the application-based nature of the licensing exam), the author has provided a glossary containing narratives of each approach applied to the same family vignette. To further differentiate this manual from the other available options, Part I contains an overview of the exam, test-taking strategies and study techniques to ensure that your preparations are effective and efficient. It will also move beyond theory and into the other knowledge domains covered on the exam as well as provide a thorough glossary of all key terms and primary interventions labeled by the theory in which they belong. Finally, the manual includes a Practice Exam with correct answers stated along with a rationale as to why each answer was correct or incorrect. Contents include: Part I: About the Exam, Test-Taking Strategies & Study Techniques. Part II: The History of the Field of Marriage & Family Therapy. Part III: The Theory & Practice of Marriage & Family Therapy. Part IV: Clinical Considerations & Concepts Part V: The Practice Exam Walk into test day feeling confident and prepared after completing this Independent Study Guide. An affordable and effective resource made by a Marriage & Family Therapist for Marriage & Family Therapists.

A dark and unexpected novel about a Dublin undertaker who finds himself on the wrong side of the Irish mob. Paddy Buckley is a grieving widower who has worked for years for Gallagher’s, a long-established—some say the best—funeral home in Dublin. One night driving home after an unexpected encounter with a client, Paddy hits a pedestrian crossing the street. He pulls over and gets out of his car, intending to do the right thing. As he bends over to help the man, he recognizes him. It’s Donal Cullen, brother of one of the most notorious mobsters in Dublin. And he’s dead. Shocked and scared, Paddy jumps back in his car and drives away before anyone notices what’s happened. The next morning, the Cullen family calls Gallagher’s to oversee the funeral arrangements. Paddy, to his dismay, is given the task of meeting with the grieving Vincent Cullen, Dublin’s crime boss, and Cullen’s entourage. When events go awry, Paddy is plunged into an unexpected eddy of intrigue, deceit, and treachery. By turns a thriller, a love story, and a black comedy of ill manners, The Last Four Days of Paddy Buckley is a surprising, compulsively readable debut novel. From the Hardcover edition.

Professor David Entwistle's Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity is now available in a fully revised 3rd edition. Changes and additions have made throughout this unique volume, including: * 42 additional pages * expanded list of models discussed * more questions for discussions, and * an updated bibliography. As disciplines, psychology and theology share an overlapping interest in the nature and functioning of human beings. This book provides an introduction to many of the worldview issues and philosophical foundations that frame the relationship of psychology and theology, includes scholarly reflection on the integration literature, and surveys five paradigms of possible relationships between psychology and Christianity. The book is designed to help readers become aware of the presuppositional backdrops that each of us brings to these issues, and to understand various approaches for relating psychology and Christianity as partly based on presuppositional assumptions. Questions at the end of each chapter are included to help readers evaluate both the material and their own burgeoning approach to integration. This book is ideal as a textbook for students of psychology and other behavioral and social sciences (social work, sociology, theology, counseling, pastoral counseling) at both the graduate and undergraduate level. It is also written for the broader readership of psychologists, counselors, pastors, and others who are interested in integration. Instructional Resources Professor Entwistle has provided PowerPoint presentations to accompany each chapter of the book. Instructors are free to download these presentations and use them in their classes.

Among the Ten-Thousand Things chronicles the breakup of a family in contemporary New York following a devastating extra-marital affair. Jack is a sculptor — charming and vain, visionary and vulnerable in equal measure — whose controversial work wins him attention from a young admirer. When Jack’s spurned lover sends his wife Deb a box of their correspondence to their apartment (and after it is accidentally intercepted by their children), Deb takes refuge with nine-year-old Kay and eleven-year-old Simon on Rhode Island where they become embroiled with a local family that hauntingly reflects their own. At once a mordant moral vision of modern family life and an ironic dissection of our self-deceptions, Julia Pierpont’s first novel is reminiscent of Jonathan Franzen and Jonathan Dee’s blistering portraits of post 9/11 American family life. Brimming with lyricism and emotional intelligence, Among the Ten-Thousand Things is an astonishingly original and sure-footed debut that reflects our world back to us with extraordinary force.
