Compassionate Critical Thinking demonstrates how to use mindfulness with instructional effectiveness to increase student participation and decrease classroom stress, and it turns the act of teaching into a transformational practice. Many books teach mindfulness, but few provide a model for teaching critical thinking and integrating it across the curriculum. The purpose of this book is to show teachers how to create a classroom culture of compassionate critical thinking. When students feel a lack of meaning and purpose in their school lives, they resist learning. Using a Socratic style of inquiry, Rabois changes the classroom dynamic to encourage self-reflection, insight, and empathy. Vignettes capture dialogue between teacher and students to illustrate how mindfulness practices elicit essential questions which stimulate inquiry and direct discovery. What bigger mystery is there, what more interesting and relevant story, than the story of one’s own mind and heart and how they relate us to the world?

You know the cycle: you have a stressful day and find yourself snacking or overeating at dinner to make yourself feel better. The ritual of eating becomes so calming, you can't stop-and the guilt and self-criticism you feel can lead you to overeat even more the next day. What you may not know is that simply replacing your negative feelings with compassion for yourself can interrupt this cycle so that you can meet your emotional needs without resorting to overeating. The Compassionate-Mind Guide to Ending Overeating presents an evidence-based program designed to help you grow a deep and abiding love for your body and health that transcends your emotional connection with food. As you work through the worksheets and evaluations in this book, you'll discover the specific reasons for your overeating, find out which foods trigger you to overeat, and then develop satisfying meal plans for getting your eating back on track. You'll also build compassionate-mind skills for dealing with stress, self-criticism, and shame, and establish a balanced eating pattern that will free you from the overeating cycle.

Communication: A Critical/Cultural Introduction, Second Edition introduces communication, from intimate and interpersonal to the public and mediated, as cultural. Using contemporary critical theory, authors John T. Warren and Deanna L. Fassett focus on communication as advocacy—inherently influenced by culture, history and power. By situating communication concepts and theories within contemporary and engaging cultural scenes, the book is much more than a survey of ideas—it demonstrates the power of communication in our everyday lives.

Compassionate Confrontation is a compelling look at the cultural challenges facing the twenty-first century Christian. Written in a practical and direct style, the book presents a biblical alternative to the "take back the culture" and "stay out of the culture" agendas that are advocated by well-meaning Christians. It dares Christians to take God's Truth into the public arena where absolutes and Truth have been replaced by speculations and lies. Full of battlefield stories and biblical references, the book presents a balanced look at the American culture and the biblical role of the church within it. The author calls for Christians to compassionately confront a dying world with the life-giving Truth found in God's Word and demonstrated in the lives of true Christians. His passionate, logical exhortation to the church is based on biblical truth, shaped by the teachings of Francis Schaeffer, and tested in the trenches of experience. Jim Evans has been married to his wife, Joan, for thirty-one years. He is the father of four grown children and has two grandchildren. He received his undergraduate degree from Lancaster Bible College and his graduate degree from Palm Beach Atlantic University. He has established two churches, directed a mission to Haiti, and is currently engaged in conference speaking and assisting national preachers in Africa, India, and Eastern Europe. He has also served as a Christian lobbyist in New York, worked as police liaison for the anti-abortion group, Operation Rescue, was imprisoned for opposing abortion, testified in federal courts, and debated with opponents of Christianity on television, radio, and secular university campuses. Over thirty years of ministry experience in the streets, courtrooms, prisons, and churches of America give him an unusual qualification to speak to the issues confronting the church in twenty-first century America.

Written by a leading healthcare academic and an accredited international business coach, this book takes a new approach to one of the most crucial issues in healthcare – how to care for patients appreciatively, responsively and compassionately. In the light of the findings of the Francis Report (2013), and at a time when healthcare services are under enormous pressure, there is a clear and urgent need for such a book. Despite the challenges of ill health, the authors demonstrate that the opportunity is there for any healthcare practitioner to draw out what the patient needs and desires, in line with the patient’s own values, purposes and beliefs. This approach seeks to alleviate suffering and allows the patient to be more empowered and motivated to change, discovering choice and possibility in times of adversity. In this way, the practitioner can help the patient increase their own resilience and resourcefulness. At the same time, the practitioner discovers their own ability to self-care and self-manage. Aimed at healthcare students and practitioners at all levels, Appreciative Healthcare Practice will provide a valuable and supportive learning resource for a wide range of individuals involved in caring. Contents include: Introduction Carers’ stories Compassionate and dignified care Professionalism – on becoming a professional Applying appreciative inquiry in practice and education Creativity and care Applying the three-eye model to healthcare Mindful healthcare practice The appreciative care worker and coach

This book offers a moral rather than instrumental notion of university education whilst locating the university within society. It reflects a balancing of the instrumentalization of higher education as a mode of employment training and enhances the notion of the students’ well-being being at the core of the university mission. Compassion is examined in this volume as a weaving of diverse cultures and beliefs into a way of recognizing that diversity through a common good offers a way of preparing students and staff for a complex and anxious world. This book provides theoretical and practical discussions of compassion in higher education, it draws contributors from around the world and offers illustrations of compassion in action through a number of international cases studies..
