43 Self-Assessment of Functioning in Group

Lelslie Rae HRD Press, Inc. PDF

Self-Assessment of Functioning

43 in Group


This is an activity based on the completion of a self-assessment instrument followed by discussion about the shared views.


This activity should be used at a reasonably early, but not initial, stage in an event in order to (a) assess the attitudes of the participants as the event progresses, and (b) encourage the participants to share their views/feelings about their attitudes to themselves, to others in the group, and to the training event.


To afford the participants the opportunity to assess views and feelings about themselves, the others in the group, and the training event, at different stages in the event

To provide an instrument that will encourage discussion by the delegates of the views, etc., assessed

To give the trainer feedback about the way the training event appears to be going, judged from the expressed views of the participants




No pressure should be put on the participants to influence them, either in the way they will complete the instrument or in the level to which they will discuss the results. If possible, the discussion will be trainee-centered so that the participants will find their own level at that stage in the event. An assessment by the trainer of this disclosure level will provide the trainer with additional progress information.

6. Analysis

Fordham, Michael Karnac Books ePub

So far the terms analysis and psychotherapy have been used but not defined. The term analysis commonly covers all the different methods that have so far been listed, and an analyst is then thought of as a person who uses one or more of them. This wide application is of little scientific value and only distinguishes a group of psychotherapists. It therefore becomes necessary to define the essential meaning of the term. As I shall show, it corresponds to the ‘stage’ of elucidation in Jung’s scheme of therapy.

Analysis means: ‘The resolution of anything complex into its simple elements’ (Oxford Dictionary). In analytical practice it is a method of thought, combined with observation of data produced by patients, aiming to define simple entities, called primary, which explain complex symptoms, character disorders and normal psychic functioning.

Arriving at and defining what is primary is complex. In the early stages of psychoanalysis it was discovered that the root of hysterical symptoms could be located in an emotional trauma in childhood. Yet it often appeared that the traumata need not necessarily have been traumatic, indeed many of them might have been surmounted by a different child; so it was assumed that patients had a predisposition to experience events in their childhood as harmful: that was the primary cause of the condition. Freud was not content with this idea and thought ‘predisposition’ was complex. By scrutinizing the data and analysing them further he concluded that he could replace predisposition by moral standards that were in conflict with infantile sexual fantasies and impulses; he tested this conclusion, developing the techniques of free association and interpretation to assist him. For his part Jung studied the parental images from which collective standards emerged and he concluded that there were primary entities that lay behind the personal ones. They had historical, impersonal and social (collective) reference. He did this by studying data from dream and fantasy in relation to ethnological material to define a number of primary entities called archetypes (the shadow, anima/animus and the self). In all this he and Freud both proceeded analytically.

Grudge Wright

Edited by Michael Martone and Bryan Furu Break Away Book Club Edition ePub

Grudge Wright

And this is where my naive mistakes began. I had money and time, which turns out to be a dangerous combination for a fledgling comedian with zero anecdotes in his repertoire. I had time, money, two free motel ink pens, and an endless supply of Mankiller’s Motor Court memo pads. What did I know?

I sat in the motel room, or down at the Throw Park where all the stray dogs have disappeared, and tried my best not to think like this:

Jumper cable walks into a bar. The bartender says, “Man, you look horrible.” The jumper cable says, “Don’t get me started.”

A sixteen-penny nail walks into a bar and the bartender says, “Can’t serve you. You’re already hammered.”

A right-wing radio personality walks into a bar. The bartender says, “Can I get you anything?” and the guy says, “No thanks, I’m already really fucked up.”

A hairbrush walks into a bar. The bartender says, “Hold on, buddy. Don’t bristle up on me.”

You’ve heard them all, I’m sure. People always wonder, where do jokes come from? Answer: Me. When I got heckled—nightly—some genius in the audience would always yell out, “Hey, Bazooka Joe, vaudeville’s calling and it wants its act back.” I didn’t care. It was my shtick, as they say. Even people in Winesburg can have a shtick. Some comedians had woeful childhood stories, some stuck to tales of a horrific marriage, some did prop comedy. One guy wore a bag over his head and went by the Unknown Comic, from what I’ve gathered. Me, I had my Blank Goes into a Bar:

Chapter 7: A Reporting System for Modern Learning

Jay McTighe Solution Tree Press ePub

By following the backward design processes in this book, we should now have a well-aligned, mission-driven system with a focus on impacts. This focus should guide our curriculum mapping from a macro level to a micro level and align all of our assessments so they provide data to show student performance and growth in areas related to our impacts. Now we are ready to draw our work together in a manner that satisfies our original goal—to enact our vision and mission in a way that is demonstrated through student performance.

Throughout this book, we have described the important inputs of constructing a system for various outputs (curriculum, assessment, instruction, reporting, and other supportive structures), all of which are aligned with our stated impacts. It is worth pausing for a moment to retrace our journey and reiterate the major inputs that have gotten us to this stage.

1. Creating a compelling, futures-focused vision for schooling

2. Developing a mission that brings this vision to life by specifying desired impacts—the long-term transfer goals that we seek in student performance

Prevention of Toll Frauds against IP-PBX

James Yu

Chicago, IL 60604

Abstract – This research is motivated by a toll fraud case against an enterprise IP-PBX, and further investigation of an asterisk server log shows a growing threat of VoIP attacks against enterprise IP-PBX. Although the Session

Initiation Protocol (SIP) has a comprehensive security measures, its implementations are optional and VoIP administrators could be confused about which security measures are required for their specific environments. This study identifies several vulnerabilities in the VoIP implementation, and hackers could explore the vulnerabilities to launch various security attacks. Based on the analysis of the log data and the protocol, this study proposes several counter measures to prevent the security attacks for different VoIP implementations.

and I’d just come home from school and there Mom was bawling her eyes out. Her make-up wasn’t smeared so I figured she hadn’t been crying long. “Always the pretty ones that die,” she was saying over and over, and she didn’t have to say anything else because I know she was thinking I was safe as could be. Plain Jane she liked to call me, teasing me to hear me shout that my name was Constance, Connie, not stupid Jane. She got a big kick out of it and laughed like it was the joke of the century. Even when she’d let me sit down beside her at the vanity she’d start comparing our faces, hers with mine, and she’d always throw in “You can thank your father for that nose.” The way she said it I knew I didn’t need to be thanking anybody.

When Mom was crying about Mary Alice, Wade and I tried to give her a hug because that’s what I thought she was expecting but she pushed us out of the way and started walking around the kitchen—her head bent a little bit to the side—moving like a statue would move if it could. I don’t need to tell you that my mother was an actress at the community theater. She taught me and Wade from the very start about drama, which she said translated into English as meaning “larger than life.” Thanks to her,

2. The Riddle of the Flower Remedies: Homeopathy, Allopathy, and Flower Essences

McCabe, Vinton Basic Health Publications ePub



The Riddle of the Flower Remedies: Homeopathy, Allopathy, and Flower Essences

As often as possible in this chapter, I want to present Bach’s ideas in his own words. To this end, I want to begin with what I think is an excellent presentation of his core philosophy as presented in his pamphlet Heal Thyself 1.

“The main reason for the failure of modern medical science is that it is dealing with results and not causes. For many centuries the real nature of disease has been masked by materialism, and thus disease itself has been given every opportunity of extending its ravages, since it has not been attacked at its origin. The situation is like to an enemy strongly fortified in the hills, continually waging guerilla warfare in the country around, while the people, ignoring the fortified garrison, content themselves with repairing the damaged houses and burying the dead, which are the result of the raids of the marauders. So, generally speaking, is the situation in medicine today; nothing more than the patching up of those attacked and the burying of those who are slain, without a thought being given to the real stronghold.

CHAPTER THIRTEEN: Supervision: a psychodynamic and psychoanalytic perspective on supervisor practice and supervisor training

Karnac Books ePub

Christine Driver

Supervision within the field of psychoanalytic work could be said to have started with Freud at his Wednesday evening meetings in Berlin (Frawley-O'Dea & Sarnat, 2001). Here, the approach was very much a process of “learning from the master” (Freud himself), with little apparent reflection on the dynamics of transference and process. It was almost fifty years later, through the work of Heimann (1950) and, more especially, Searles (1955) that the significance of transference, countertransference, and uncon scious communication in supervision was realized.

The key issue that Searles identified was that the supervisor's emotions are often “highly informative reflections of the relationship between therapist and patient” (1955, p. 158), and that the supervisory relationship is influenced and affected by unconscious processes and dynamics from the patient material and the supervisory relationship. This realization led Searles to coin the term “reflection process” to describe this dynamic and, together with ideas emerging from Ekstein and Wallerstein (1972), supervision began to be seen as a more complex matrix involving at the very least a triangular dynamic (Driver & Martin, 2002, 2005; Hawkins & Shohet, 2002; Mattinson, 1975; Wiener, Mizen, & Duckham, 2003).

     Around Budapest

There’s no other city in Hungary like Budapest – everything of importance starts or ends here. It is the beauty of Budapest that sets it apart. Straddling a gentle curve in the Danube, it is flanked by the Buda Hills on the west bank and the start of the Great Plain to the east. Architecturally it is a gem, with enough examples of baroque, neoclassical, Eclectic and Art Nouveau (Secessionist) to satisfy anyone.

Besides the heady mix of museums and shopping streets, outdoor entertainment areas called kertek (literally ‘gardens’) and ‘ruin pubs’ heave with party-makers in the warmer months, and there are numerous thermal baths in which to pamper yourself.

Like any capital city, Budapest does have a gritty side. But come spring (or summer, or a brisk autumn day, or dusk), when the city is at its loveliest, cross the Danube on foot and you will see why this passionate and vibrant city remains unmissable.

1 Action you can take now to recognize their effort in some appropriate way that communicates to them (and to others in the organization) how valuable they are to you and why their contributions are critical to your telecommuting success.








Stay in Touch with Co-Workers

With the time you invest each day in accomplishing your work; communicating with clients, partners, and your boss; addressing the technological and administrative issues critical to your work; and maintaining some semblance of balance in your life, it’s very easy to find little or no time to stay connected with your co-workers.

Certainly you’ll communicate with them when it’s essential to your work, but it’s also important to stay in touch with co-workers for nontask purposes. This not only strengthens the foundation of your relationships, it also assures your co-workers that you’re present (albeit in a virtual way!), available, and aware of them and their issues.

Rossetti, Christina Carcanet Press Ltd. ePub

Her heart that loved me once is rottenness

    Now and corruption; and her life is dead

    That was to have been one with mine, she said.

The earth must lie with such a cruel stress

On eyes whereon the white lids used to press;

    Foul worms fill up her mouth so sweet and red;

    Foul worms are underneath her graceful head;

Yet these, being born of her from nothingness,

These worms are certainly flesh of her flesh.–

    How is it that the grass is rank and green

And the dew-dropping rose is brave and fresh

Above what was so sweeter far than they?

Even as her beauty hath passed quite away,

    Theirs too shall be as though it had not been.

So I said underneath the dusky trees:

    But, because still I loved her memory,

    I stooped to pluck a pale anemone,

And lo my hand lighted upon heartsease

Not fully blown: while with new life from these

    Fluttered a starry moth that rapidly

Complexity in Architectural Time

Henry Glassie Indiana University Press ePub

Temporal mixing characterizes the buildings called vernacular. The English parish church, a world wonder of architectural creativity, carries the vernacular idea deeply into time. If vernacular buildings tick with many clocks, changing different components at different rates to display continuity and change at once, then they contrast with buildings that belong perfectly to one moment in time. Nonvernacular buildings are wholly original, new in every detail. Here we have come prematurely to an important conclusion. No building is entirely new. If it were, it would be utterly incomprehensible. Rejecting every old convention, lacking windows and doors, serving no function of shelter or social division, the thing might be sculpture, but it would not be a building. No matter how grandiose or revolutionary the creation, there must be some tradition, some presence of the common and continuous — of the qualities called “folk”— or people would not be able to understand it or use it. In their mixing of the old and the new, all buildings are vernacular, the products of real people in real situations. But within practice, attitudes differ.

10 The Truth about Flight Upgrades

Planet, Lonely Lonely Planet Publications ePub



How to maximise your chances of getting that mythical upgrade to first class


Getting an upgrade to a superior cabin on a flight is a bit like getting rid of hiccups – there are dozens of colourful theories for doing it, but no foolproof solution. In truth, the only trick isn’t really a trick: you’ve got to work on your status.

‘In the event of cabins being overbooked the decision is in the hands of the gate crew,’ says Tom Otley, Editorial Director at Business Traveller. ‘They can see the details of the tickets you’ve booked, and how many loyalty points you have. If you’re a regular traveller, and have higher status than other passengers on that flight, then you get the bump up.’

That, then, is the unromantic truth. There remains, of course, no harm in flashing those baby blues at check-in. Where there’s a spare seat in F there’s always a chance.

Take the bump

Getting upgraded is a perk, but a more lucrative tweak to your journey is being bumped off an overbooked flight – often in exchange for vouchers, tier points or cash. If you’re waiting to board and hear offers of compensation to those willing to take the bump, position yourself by the desk so you’re best placed to swoop and grab the goodies.
