Fools Crow (1890–1989), einer der letzten großen Häuptlinge der Sioux, erhielt in einer Vision den Auftrag, sein Wissen um die heiligen Traditionen seines Volkes aufzeichnen zu lassen. Sein von Thomas E. Mails niedergeschriebener Bericht ist ein faszinierendes Zeugnis der Weisheit einer »ökologischen Spiritualität«, deren Bedeutung für unser Überleben auf diesem Planeten heute von Indianern wie Nicht-Indianern wiederentdeckt wird.

Clifford Geertz (1926-2006) war einer der bedeutendsten Kulturanthropologen des 20. Jahrhunderts. Wie wichtig seine Vorstellung von Kultur als sinnstiftendes Bedeutungsgewebe heute noch ist, zeigt die erschütternde Gewalt von Menschen, die befürchten müssen, dass ihr sozio-kulturelles Netz Risse und Löcher bekommt, sie Halt und Orientierung verlieren. Die Geschichte und prekäre Situation der Inuit verdeutlicht diese Zusammenhänge. Barbara Schellhammer verbindet das Geertz'sche Denken mit dessen konkreter Anwendung in Nordkanada und bietet somit neue Perspektiven und Entwicklungsmöglichkeiten - sowohl für die sozialwissenschaftliche Theoriebildung als auch für die besorgniserregende psycho-soziale Lage der Inuit.

Lessons from Faith Traditions in Transforming Conflict

Over more than twenty years as a mediator, Aaron T. Wolf has learned that successful conflict resolution is shaped by complicated dynamics--from how comfortable the meeting room is to the participants' deepest senses of self. Bridging seemingly intractable issues means addressing multiple layers of needs. Wolf's approach may be surprising to Westerners who are accustomed to separating rationality from spirituality and science from religion. The Spirit of Dialogue draws lessons from a diversity of faith traditions to transform conflict, from identifying the root cause of anger to aligning with an energy beyond oneself--what Christians call grace--to the true listening practiced by Buddhist monks. Whether atheist or fundamentalist, Muslim or Jewish, Quaker or Hindu, any reader involved in difficult dialogue will find concrete steps towards a meeting of souls.

Presents 100+ interventions using creative and expressive arts counseling techniques in school settings Expressive arts therapies are a rich resource for use with children and adolescents, who are often unresponsive to traditional talk therapy, and highly useful to school counselors who must overcome cultural, language, and ability barriers that are increasingly present in diverse and multicultural school settings. This is the first book written specifically for school counselors about using creative and expressive arts counseling techniques in school settings. It presents over 100 interventions using art, drama, music, writing, dance, and movement that school counselors can easily incorporate into their practices with individual students and groups, and in classroom settings. These creative interventions, based on the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model framework, support the key student domains of academic, career, and personal/social development. The text also meets the important demand for accountability in school counseling by providing guidelines for evaluating the effectiveness of each intervention. Addressing such issues as emotional expression, social skills development, managing anger/aggression, developing self-esteem, working well with diverse peers, career exploration, and academic skill development, the book is organized by specific types of expressive arts therapies and how they can be used to support different domains in the ASCA model. Each intervention outlines the presenting concerns for which it is most useful, appropriate grade levels, required materials, preparation needed, step-by-step instructions, modifications for special needs students, and an outcome assessment plan. A handy quick reference chart helps readers to quickly locate appropriate interventions for specific concerns. Ideal for the school counselor, social worker, or psychologist who may not have specific training in arts therapies, this book can also help trained arts therapists who will be working in a school setting to select appropriate interventions. Key Features: Presents over 100 creative and expressive arts interventions that can be easily incorporated into school counseling practice Addresses all relevant ASCA National Model domains (academic, career, and personal/social) Provides easy-to-follow preparation and delivery directions and outcome evaluation methods for each intervention Includes modifications for special needs populations Offers a handy quick reference chart matching interventions to appropriate concerns
