It has been a pleasure to be involved in the ‘Contemporary
Thinkers Reframed’ series produced by I.B.Tauris. I would like to
pay tribute to Susan Lawson’s initiative and courage in proposing
a series of books on contemporary thinkers aimed specifically at
the visual artist and visual-arts students. I would also like to
acknowledge Philippa Brewster, Liza Thompson and Gretchen
Ladish’s patience and commitment to the project. Estelle Barrett
has, as always, enriched this book through our ongoing dialogues
and her generosity in reading the manuscript.
If you have already studied to become a coach you already know
the answer to this question. If you think you know exactly what
coaching is then you can afford to skip a few pages to Chapter 2
and start thinking about how to develop your coaching skills to the
point at which you can run a successful coaching business. If you
have any doubts whatsoever then read on. Knowing exactly what

Resilient kids ‘bounce back’ from the inevitable crises that come along. Most
young people are skilled in dealing with frustration, teasing, disappointments
and generally maintain good relationships. For others, emotional control
is tricky and any perceived threat is met with furious, sometimes physical

To be generous, we must first be wealthy. To give, we must have
something TO give. To move, for once and for all, beyond worry
about money is to open up our ability to live up to our potentialto
do our greatest work.
With you for company, I am excited about the future we will create
... starting with our wealth.
Let's stop ignoring the truth and talk about multiple ways for
coaches to earn money.
This is about our lives and our livelihoods. Ready, set, engage!
The essays that follow adopt and adapt, explore and expand an approach to the
medieval art object that Madeline Caviness has dubbed “triangulation.” The pioneering
role of Professor Caviness in pursuing critical and theoretical goals provides the a priori
condition for this volume.
In a world immersed in readymade images, consumer advertising
and the bureaucratised language of institutions, Kristeva’s work
explains how art or aesthetic experience is one of the few means
by which we can generate and access images that are linked to our
vital and lived experiences and that have the capacity to engender
personal, political and social renewal.
This study offers a new framework for understanding how the arts create private and public value, highlights the importance of the arts intrinsic benefits and indentifies how both instrumental and instrinsic benefits are created.
All of our home visiting programs are based on best-practice models and work to prevent child
maltreatment through the provision of services that strengthen families. In addition to our primary
prevention programs, our home visiting staff are a partner with State Child Welfare and the Zero to
Three Court team, where we help families develop parenting skills as they prepare to regain custody
of their children.
This is a watershed moment in the field of neuroimaging. At least three emerging
trends have been slowly reframing the field for the last five years. Each one of these
trends intersects with a foundational issue in human brain mapping, affecting the measurement
or methodological or theoretical nature of the overall field. First are methodological
problems that have arisen concerning nonindependence of samples—in effect
the lack of cross-validation procedures applied in the field, especially in social neuroscience
