How to Incorporate Wellness Coaching into Your Therapeutic Practice:A Handbook for Therapists and Counsellors Laurel Alexander
In recent years, multimedia learning, or learning from words and images, has developed into a coherent discipline with a significant research base. The Cambridge Handbook of Multimedia Learning is unique in offering a comprehensive, up-to-date analysis of research and theory in the field, with a focus on computer-based learning. Since the first edition appeared in 2005, it has shaped the field and become the primary reference work for multimedia learning. Multimedia environments, including online presentations, e-courses, interactive lessons, simulation games, slideshows, and even textbooks, play a crucial role in education. This revised second edition incorporates the latest developments in multimedia learning and contains new chapters on topics such as drawing, video, feedback, working memory, learner control, and intelligent tutoring systems. It examines research-based principles to determine the most effective methods of multimedia instruction and considers research findings in the context of cognitive theory to explain how these methods work.
This is a complete guide to the pricing and risk management ofconvertible bond portfolios. Convertible bonds can be complexbecause they have both equity and debt like features and new marketentrants will usually find that they have either a knowledge offixed income mathematics or of equity derivatives and thereforehave no idea how to incorporate credit and equity together intotheir existing pricing tools. Part I of the book covers the impact that the 2008 credit crunchhas had on the markets, it then shows how to build up a convertiblebond and introduces the reader to the traditional convertiblevocabulary of yield to put, premium, conversion ratio, delta,gamma, vega and parity. The market of stock borrowing and lendingwill also be covered in detail. Using an intuitive approach basedon the Jensen inequality, the authors will also show the advantagesof using a hybrid to add value - pre 2008, many investors labelledconvertible bonds as ´investing with no downside´, there are ofcourse plenty of 2008 examples to prove that they were wrong. Theauthors then go onto give a complete explanation of the differentfeatures that can be embedded in convertible bond. Part II shows readers how to price convertibles. It covers thedifferent parameters used in valuation models: credit spreads,volatility, interest rates and borrow fees and Maturity. Part III covers investment strategies for equity, fixed incomeand hedge fund investors and includes dynamic hedging andconvertible arbitrage. Part IV explains the all important risk management part of theprocess in detail. This is a highly practical book, all products priced are realworld examples and numerical examples are not limited tohypothetical convertibles. It is a must read for anyone wanting tosafely get into this highly liquid, high return market.

We all know what it means these days to be a ´´grumpy old man´´, because part of that role is to be outspoken. Well, we´ve heard just about enough out of the men, thank you very much. Grumpy Old Women gives us the other perspective, the female take, on the million irritations of today´s world. So what´s the difference? Surely what is irritating to the mature members of one sex is equally annoying to the other? Not necessarily, and this is precisely what Grumpy Old Women seeks to address. Body image, visitors, children, animals, shopping, careers, parties, holidays, and yes, grumpy old men themselves, all are very much on the list of what today´s mature woman finds a source of concern. From the series producer and stand-up comic Judith Holder, the book will also incorporate material from the new series Grumpy Old Women, which features a diverse, colourful, and very grumpy group of celebrities, including Janet Street Porter, Jenny Eclair, Ann Widdecombe, Germaine Greer, Kathryn Flett, and Jilly Cooper. Written with wit, style, and sympathy, the book is sure to be a source of both amusement and comfort to women everywhere, grumpy, old, or otherwise. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alison Steadman.

Finally, a road map to recovery from the nation´s most original thinker on addiction. In his revolutionary book The Heart of Addiction, Dr. Lance Dodes examined the underlying emotions that drive addictive behaviors - whether drinking, gambling, sex, or eating. Now, in Breaking Addiction, Dodes presents a comprehensive guide outlining seven critical steps to overcome addiction, based on his findings. hrough his practice and research, Dodes has found that virtually every addictive act is preceded by feelings of helplessness. In his refreshingly clear style, Dodes incorporates case histories to illustrate exactly how these feelings set addiction in motion, how to recognize the path toward addiction and then how to take back control. Many people, discouraged by current treatments, have been hungry for an approach that digs addiction up by its roots. Since the publication of The Heart of Addiction, Dodes´s ideas have been incorporated by therapists and treatment centers around the country, and are taught by universities and training centers for clinicians. With special sections for both families and health-care professionals, Breaking Addiction is poised to be the handbook for a new, comprehensive, and in-depth understanding of addiction. 1.
