This is a book of hope and promise about bereavement therapy. The Phoenix Grievers, ordinary people whose attributes enable them to transform and transcend their own grief, are used as models of the self-actualization that can result in the aftermath of an unbearable loss. Based on the experiences of these exceptional grievers, bereavement therapist Joanne Jozefowski offers guidelines on how to avoid hazards, adapt with healthy coping mechanisms, and eliminate unnecessary suffering. She provides a developmental model of the process of grief; identifies the phases of impact, chaos, adaptation, equilibrium and transformation; and offers phase-specific recommendations for the bereaved and their therapists. A well-written and valuable resource for both grievers and the mental health professionals who help them, this book provides hope for transformational grief and the tools to forge that outcome.

A dynamic cultural history of the internationally celebrated Phoenix Dance Company, unique in several ways: its members were in their teens when they formed the company in 1981, they gained recognition very early in their careers through an established television arts program in 1984, they were skillful performers but had not received formal training, they were based in the north of England at a time when most dance centered in London (and New York), and they were black British men who had known each other since childhood, coming from a tight-knit African-Caribbean community.As children, they learned a lot from London Contemporary Dance Theatre and watched videos of Twyla Tharp, Netherlands Dance Company, Dance Theatre of Harlem and the Alvin Ailey Company. This complex narrative, played out through gender, ethnicity and class, places Phoenix as a significant artistic force in contemporary dance. One of the paradoxes it faced was the expectation by funding bodies, critics and audiences that it represent the black community. Such expectations posed a challenge for each successive artistic director. This provocative story investigates institutional racism on the part of arts policy makers, funders and critics.

Drawing Phoenix - How to Draw Mystical Creatures For the Beginner Table of Contents Introduction Part I | General Facts and Fiction Folklore, Myths, and Legends Religion and Spirituality Pop Culture Music Film The Gospel of the Phoenix and the Phoenix Principle Part II | How to Draw the Phoenix Drawing Tools The Drawing Process Setting a Creative Intention What does drawing in layers mean? Rendering Basic Rendering Exercises Drawing in Layers Lines, Shapes, and Gesture Drawing Form Construction Detailing Shadowing, Blending, and Building Contrast Glossary The Author Introduction The legend of the phoenix appears almost in every culture: A mystical bird (usually associated with a woman) who takes off to the heavens in a fiery blaze. The character has probably been most famous by the animated comics and animated series X-Men. Later turned into a film, Jean Gray’s allure and superb psychic powers are put in the spotlight when she magnificently transforms, unleashing her true potential as the prophesied Phoenix. The Phoenix is associated with great power, and it is because of the massive potentialities she is endowed with that the battle between good and evil ensueswhere good hopes she could tame the power, but evil intends to take control and use it to further spread malevolence. The third of the How to Draw Mythical Creatures series, Phoenix takes on another mystical exploration. The first part tackles historical and mythical accounts on the existence of such a creature. The second section provides basic drawing essentials designed to instruct the absolute beginner. Prior to focusing on the subject at hand, you will have the opportunity to equip yourself with rudimentary basic processes. Included is a discussion on rendering, which will guide you on how to establish lighting, contrast, and shading topics among which can be intimidating for the novice. Without further ado, I welcome you to join me on this mystical adventure. Welcome aboard!

Part of the self-image of Phoenix is that the city has no history and that anything of importance happened yesterday. Also that Phoenix, the Arizona state capital, is a “clean” city (despite a past of police corruption and social oppression). The “real” Phoenix, easygoing, sun-drenched, a place of ever-expanding development and economic growth, guarantees, it is said, an enviable lifestyle, low taxes, and unfettered personal freedom and opportunity. Little of this is true. Phoenix has been described as one of the least sustainable cities in the country. This sixth largest urban area of the United States has an alarmingly superficial and tourism-oriented discourse among its leaders. This book examines a series of narrative works (novels, theater, chronicles, investigative reporting, personal accounts, editorial cartooning, even a children’s television program) that question this discourse in a frequently stinging fashion. The works examined are anchored in a critical understanding of the dominant urban myths of Greater Phoenix, and an awareness of how all the newness, modernity and fun-in-the-sun mentality mask a uniquely dystopian human experience.

China’s recent growth has called attention to the power-transition theory, which contends that the danger of a major war is the greatest when a rising dissatisfied challenger threatens to overtake a declining satisfied hegemon. Steve Chan questions this prevailing view by analyzing the extent of ongoing power shifts among the leading powers, exploring the portents for their future growth, and seeking indicators of their relative commitment to the existing international order. To better understand the strategic motivations of ascending and declining states, insights are drawn from prospect theory and past episodes of peaceful and violent transition (such as the end of the Cold War and the outbreak of the First and Second World Wars). He concludes that China is unlikely to instigate a confrontation with the US, and that whilst military conflict over the Taiwan Strait is possible, this is more likely to be due to China’s inability to prevent US involvement than its willingness to provoke the US. This book places China in a comparative and historical context, in which inquiry is informed by the experiences of other major powers and pertinent theories in international relations, such as those on extended deterrence, preventive war, and democratic peace. Its comparative and theoretical orientation and its contrarian perspective will be of great interest not only to students and scholars of international relations and Chinese politics, but also to policy makers and professionals.

Wright brings more than forty years of clinical and classroom experience to this topic and shares real-life dialogues to demonstrate healthy, healing counseling sessions.

A New Romanticism

Andrew Chavez provides a large representative sampling of the poetry that is part of his exploratory journey leading to the final development of his perspective called a new romanticism. Chavez turned to poetry because of intense revelatory experiences; those same revelations guide and direct his work. A reader is allowed an opportunity to follow the ups and downs, the misdirections, errors, and pitfalls that were part of the unique process of discovery. The poetry strives to be as direct, clear, and brief as possible. Chavez believes that a thinking mind with something to say has a natural melody to those expressions. The job of the poet is to say what needs to be said then stop. There is no law of poetry guiding length. A poem should be as long, or short, as necessary to say, tell, or show whatever needs to be said, told, or shown.

Wherever people are working, there is some type of stress—and where there is stress, there is the risk of burnout. It is widespread, the subject of numerous studies in the U.S. and abroad. It is also costly, both to individuals in the form of sick days, lost wages, and emotional exhaustion, and to the workplace in terms of the bottom line. But as we are now beginning to understand, burnout is also preventable. Burnout for Experts brings multifaceted analysis to a multilayered problem, offering comprehensive discussion of contributing factors, classic and less widely perceived markers of burnout, coping strategies, and treatment methods. International perspectives consider phase models of burnout and differentiate between burnout and related physical and mental health conditions. By focusing on specific job and life variables including workplace culture and gender aspects, contributors give professionals ample means for recognizing burnout as well as its warning signs. Chapters on prevention and intervention detail effective programs that can be implemented at the individual and organizational levels. Included in the coverage: · History of burnout: a phenomenon. · Personal and external factors contributing to burnout. · Depression and burnout · Assessment tools and methods. · The role of communication in burnout prevention. · Active coping and other intervention strategies. Skillfully balancing scholarship and accessibility, Burnout for Experts is a go-to resource for health psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, and organizational, industrial, and clinical psychologists.

In the thirty-third century, a vast empire teeters on the edge of destruction in the trilogy that “has the sweep and power of Asimov’s Foundation” (Jean M. Auel, author of the Earth’s Children series). A draconian ruling class. A slave rebellion threatening to boil over. A clandestine organization that has limitless power so long as it stays in the shadows. Concord is a hell of a place to die. In M.K. Wren’s mesmerizing trilogy (Sword of the Lamb, Shadow of the Swan, House of the Wolf), a hero defies his birthright to achieve a greater purpose—leading the citizens of Concord to freedom. Doing so may cost the one-time Lord Alexand everything he holds dear, from his love to his own life. With a breathtaking sweep and unforgettable characters, M.K. Wren has penned a series perfect for readers of Divergent.
