The three-volume Encyclopedia of Behavior Modification and Cognitive Behavior Therapy provides a thorough examination of the components of behavior modification, behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, and applied behavior analysis for both child and adult populations in a variety of settings. Although the focus is on technical applications, entries also provide the historical context in which behavior therapists have worked, including research issues and strategies. Entries on assessment, ethical concerns, theoretical differences, and the unique contributions of key figures in the movement (including B. F. Skinner, Joseph Wolpe, Aaron T. Beck, and many others) are also included. No other reference source provides such comprehensive treatment of behavior modification—history, biography, theory, and application.

Die hübsche Frankie ist hin- und hergerissen zwischen zwei jungen Männern, die unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnten. Doch eines Tages muss sie sich entscheiden - und lernt, ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen. Rebecca Chace erzählt eine faszinierende Liebesgeschichte vor dem Hintergrund des Booms der amerikanischen Baumwollindustrie zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts. Sommer 1916 in Rock Harbor, Neuengland. Als die zwei jungen Männer Frankie abholen, um sie zu einem Ausflug an den Strand mitzunehmen, ahnt sie nicht, dass sie sich eines Tages wird entscheiden müssen: zwischen dem ernsthaften, sensiblen Portugiesen Joe, der gemeinsam mit ihrem Vater in der Baumwollfabrik arbeitet, und dem weltgewandten, charmanten Winslow, Sohn des Fabrikbesitzers Curtis. Es ist ihr erster Ausflug ans Meer, die Luft riecht nach Freiheit und Abenteuer, nach Aufbruch. Und tatsächlich beginnt eine Zeit des erotischen und politischen Erwachens. Denn Frankie genießt nicht nur die extravagante, luxuriöse Welt der Curtis-Dynastie, sie interessiert sich auch für den Arbeitsalltag in der Fabrik, für dessen Verbesserung Joe kämpft. Als die politischen Gegensätze zwischen Winslow und Joe immer brisanter werden, muss auch Frankie ihr Leben neu überdenken.

Kommunalverwaltung in lokaler Politikgestaltung mit Zivilgesellschaft

Author: Andrea Walter

Publisher: Springer-Verlag

Andrea Walter untersucht Chancen und Herausforderungen für Kommunalverwaltung in lokaler Politikgestaltung mit Vereinen und Verbänden am Beispiel einer Fallkommune. Sie illustriert das Rollenverständnis von Kommunalverwaltung sowie die Bedeutung von Interaktionsregeln und des lokalen Kontextes. Auf dieser Basis entwickelt sie ein Modell administrativer Governance. Ihre Befunde ordnet sie in den Kontext lokaler Governance, kooperativen Verwaltungshandelns und Fragen der Legitimation ein. Die Autorin beleuchtet damit eine bislang wenig beachtete Facette von Kommunalverwaltung, die primär als Zuarbeiterin von Politik gilt. Dabei umfasst ein wesentlicher Teil ihrer Arbeit auf lokaler Ebene die Interaktion mit (organisierter) Zivilgesellschaft – in Zeiten knapper Kassen und zunehmender Beteiligungsprozesse gilt dies umso mehr.

Europäisches Recht ist gut und schön , sagten ihm Datenschutz-Beauftragte großer Internet-Konzerne während eines Auslandssemesters im Silicon Valley, aber wir tun in Europa sowieso, was wir wollen. Als Max Schrems daraufhin von Facebook alle über ihn vorliegenden Daten verlangte, bekam er 1.200 DIN-A4-Seiten, darunter viele von ihm gelöscht geglaubte. Schrems zeigte Facebook bei der zuständigen irischen Datenschutzbehörde an und wurde zum international beachteten David, der gegen die Goliaths des Internet antritt. Jetzt legt der Student mit der Gabe, den Datenschutz so einfach zu erklären wie Jamie Oliver das Kochen, sein Wissen, das er unter anderem bei EU-Hearings gesammelt hat, als Buch vor. Was bedroht uns wirklich? Wie schützen wir uns? Was kann die Macht von Facebook oder Google noch auf ein vernünftiges Maß reduzieren?
