One of the main tasks in the psychological individuation process is the reconciliation of opposites, especially the opposition between consciousness and the unconscious. Dreams create a bridge between these two worlds. Jung sees the dream as the steady endeavor of the unconscious to create the best possible equilibrium in the psyche. Dreams are a means to establish a homeostatic balance, or at least to show the dreamer what would be necessary to achieve this balance. Psychotherapists of many different schools use dreams in individual therapy, but very few use them in counseling couples.
A number of developments have inadvertently exposed the extent to which the
accountancy profession had become a major industry
and, thus, indirectly invited critical
reflection upon the relevance and adequacy of its regulation. Consideration of the three
episodes allows us to explore how accountants have responded to the challenge of change
and, more specifically, how they have sought to address and neutralise the threat to the image
of themselves (and associated material benefits) as responsible, independent professionals.
For comparing Aussiedler incidence and mortality with the German/Saarland population,
indirect standardization was used. Compared to the method of direct standardization, the
indirect method is advantageous when the stratum-specific rates of one of the populations
to be compared are based on small numbers. In this case one can use the more stable rates of
the larger population for the indirect standardization, thus gaining robustness with regard
to sampling variation (Breslow and Day, 1987).
The reader of this book will find within it ideas and models based on my 25
years of experience in clinical, educational, developmental, and medical psychology
among Arabs, Muslims, Jews, and Americans, but mainly among Palestinian
Arabs. I studied for my master’s degree in clinical psychology at Haifa
University in Israel, during which time I received some practical training at
Jewish psychological centers in Israel. Thus both my theoretical study and practical
training were based on the Western-oriented theories of psychology.
Most of the reseach show that there is a positive correlation between news cardinality and trade volume plus
volatility. Liang (2006) defined the web stock news volumes (WSNV) indicator and measured the impact of it on
financial market behavior. He classified news according to direct and indirect aspects: direct news comes from a
dedicated site containing the current news of a certain company; indirect news: company is mentioned on an other
news site. His main conclusion is that significant increases of web stock news volumes are linked with the
significant changes of stock prices.
One of the main projects of the health promoting schools network in Albania, in the field of health
education for primary school pupils, has created a positive experience that has improved daily, with
different activities organized by pupils of each school. It is important to mention the significant role
of teachers that directly or indirectly make their contribution to strengthening those initiatives; the
total integration of pupils full of enthusiasm, and the integration of parents in the realization of
every concrete project.
Such an integrative approach in basic and
clinical gastroenterology seems to be essential for the pathomechanism, proper
diagnosis and management of patients who suffer from gastrointestinal disorders. The
potential reader will not only find in this book the recent advances in the physiology
and pathomechanism of GI tract disorders, but also the treatment options based on
pharmacological and surgical intervention and the recent advances in the biological
therapy with probiotics and prebiotics, which nowadays is a rapidly growing area of
Being able to look at clients and families with
a “genetic eye” has become critical for all nurses.
Advances from genetic and genomic research
have influenced all areas of health care and
cross all periods of the life cycle. Genetic factors are
responsible in some way for both indirect and direct
disease causation; for variation that determines predisposition,
susceptibility, and resistance to disease;
and for response to treatment.
