Counselling Skills for Dietitians

Counselling Skills for Dietitians

Dietitians need to use advanced communication skills as well as technical expertise in order to assess clients′ needs, identify their problems and help them to manage their diet and lifestyle. The ability to develop a helping relationship is fundamental to achieving a mutually satisfactory dietetic interview. Counselling skills, defined as advanced communication skills used intentionally in a helping relationship, are therefore essential for good dietetic practice at all levels of the profession.

This book demonstrates how a practitioner can develop a counselling approach and employ appropriate counselling skills to overcome the communication difficulties encountered by dietitians and those engaged in helping clients change their eating behaviour.

New material in the second edition includes an expanded section on the patient interview including assessing motivation and applying aspects of CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and a new section on personal development including examples and discussion on issues of interprofessional communication and working in a multidisciplinary team.

Soils of the Past: An Introduction to Paleopedology

Soils of the Past: An Introduction to Paleopedology

A student-friendly textbook that describes ancient soils, how they may be identified, and their use in paleoenvironmental reconstruction Ancient soils contain vital mineralogical, geochemical, textural, and paleontological information about the continental environments in which they formed. Advances in isotope geochemistry and sequence-stratigraphic models allow evermore detailed reconstructions of environmental change from paleosols, and new insights into such diverse topics as atmospheric chemistry, global change, paleoecology, geobiology and mass extinction. This book educates readers about the field of paleopedology and how it remains a key area of investigation for geologists and environmental scientists seeking to learn about, and reconstruct, the condition and evolution of paleoenvironments. Presented in three sections--Soils and Palesols; Factors in Soil Formation; and Fossil Record of Soils--Soils of the Past: An Introduction to Paleopedology describes the main types of ancient soil, procedures for identifying and studying them, their classification and, most significantly, a wide array of examples of how paleosols have been used for paleoenvironmental reconstruction. The book is an excellent reflection of the current state of knowledge and can be widely adopted over many disciplines. All chapters have been revised and updated to reflect advances in soil science in the last two decades New tables display a wealth of new data added since the 2nd edition published in 2001 New figures have been added and line art has been redrawn to improve clarity and promote understanding References have been updated throughout Soils of the Past, 3rd Edition is written for advanced undergraduates studying paleopedology as part of a degree in geology, environmental science, or physical geography, and for interested professional earth scientists.

Geriatrics At Your Fingertips 2002 Edition

The fourth edition of Geriatrics at Your Fingertips is a portable, practical and economical tool for professionals who provide primary care to older persons. Content focuses on the evaluation and management of the diseases and disorders that most commonly affect older persons in various healthcare settings. GAYF minimizes the time clinicians spend searching for the information that they need to make patient care decisions. Many of the care strategies are derived from guidelines published by organizations such as the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research, the American Heart Association, and the American Diabetes Association, among others.

GAYF describes assessment instruments, recommended diagnostic tests, and management strategies that include non–pharmacologic and pharmacologic therapy. The design of the tables and lists of drugs facilitates appropriate prescribing. Generic and trade names are provided, as well as information on dosages, how the drugs are metabolized or excreted, and how each drug is supplied––with special emphasis on impact in older patients.

Body system disorders (such as respiratory diseases), symptoms (like pain), and life–style issues (such as alcohol and tobacco abuse) are covered in separate chapters.

At the end of the book are lists of telephone numbers and Web sites that serve as additional resources for specific information on general aging, end–of–life, legal issues and elder abuse, and specific health problems.

Principles of Microbial Diversity (ASM Books)

Principles of Microbial Diversity (ASM Books)

This brand new textbook will fill a currently empty niche in microbiology textbooks and provide a current, comprehensive view of microbial diversity. A microbial diversity course is considered one of the three core courses that every department should require of its majors, the other two being microbial genetics (Molecular Genetics of Bacteria, 4e) and pathogenesis (Bacterial Pathogenesis, 3e).

There are typically two ways to teach courses on microbial diversity. 1) Focus on metabolic diversity: which microbes are able to "eat" metals, which microbes tolerate extremely high or extremely low temperatures, etc. 2) Consider microbes systematically or phylogenetically, figuring out which group belongs with or next to this other group, what the line of descent might be between organism X and organism Y, etc.--a more evolutionary approach. Brown teaches from the second approach.

Intended for senior undergraduate students majoring in microbiology or a related field such as genetics or biology, graduate students either in other programs, or incoming graduate students with non-microbiology backgrounds.

• Includes a series of “Questions for Thought” at the end of each chapter.
• Offers a practical guide to molecular phylogenetic analysis, focusing on how to create and interpret phylogenetic trees, and an overview or survey of “the Tree of Life.”
• Focuses on the major phylogenetic groups of bacteria and archaea.
• Presents a discussion of various conceptual aspects of microbial complexity, from genomics and cell biology.
