A Lifetime of Communication explores the developmental processes that make for uniquely human change and growth. In this distinctive work, author Julie Yingling utilizes a single case example of a child, her parents, and other influential figures to demonstrate developmental interaction and transformational life events. Using relational and dialogic perspectives, Yingling follows the child from infancy into adolescence and adulthood, through the stages which the child acquires the means to communicate, to form and develop through relationships, to build human cognitive processes, and to understand the self as a responsible part of the social world. The work presents traditional and cutting-edge developmental theories as well as current research and relational perspectives in a palatable framework, employing a case example from a person's life at the start of each content chapter. Yingling examines communication and cognition in the various stages of human development, making connections between communication, relationships, and maturation. She also distinguishes the biological and physiological portions of development from those that are relational and self-directed. She concludes the volume with a summary of relational dialogical theory and a discussion of the implications of this perspective of development-both for the future of communication study and for personal growth. This monograph offers many new insights to scholars in human development, relationships, family studies, social psychology, and others interested in communication and relationships across the life span. It is also appropriate for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in relationships, developmental communication, and relational communication.
Life’s challenges can diminish our awareness of the communication occurring in our bodies, hearts, and spirits. In The Secret Life of Communication, Dr. Annie B. Wilson guides us inward so we can align the mind, body, heart, and spirit; express our own true voice; deepen our connection to the divine; and build relationships that fulfill our deepest desires. Using real-life stories from her personal journey and those of her clients, Dr. Annie B. explains communication from an holistic approach. The Secret Life of Communication discusses how to experience unity and freedom through the four layers of communication and shows you how to: • build harmony in your mind, body, heart, and spirit; • nurture communication with loved ones and coworkers; • obtain freedom from resentment and fear; • facilitate pain-free confl ict resolution; • realize the joy of knowing you are enough, just as you are; and • gain unity with divine love. With humor and insight, The Secret Life of Communication teaches us how to listen and respond to all aspects of communication. It facilitates self-knowledge and healing through deeper communication with ourselves and others.
From the beaches of Guadalcanal, United States Marines could look North towards a tiny island 29 miles away. It was Tulagi, the protective flank for the American fighting forces pitted against the Japanese. Between these two islands were fought some of the bloodiest and most costly naval battles of World War II. In October of 1942, a naval skirmish occurred which changed the life of John Lowery forever. The story begins 30 years after the war. On his boat, Tulagi, John keeps retreating to the steaming heat of the marshes of "Down East" North Carolina. There, he repeatedly agonizes over an act of cowardice that he committed one black night while under attack in the "slot." On one of these expeditions, he is brutally brought back to reality when he discovers the decomposing corpse of a murdered man. With the aid of three friends (the "Committee"), John sets out to solve the murder. While not far from where John lives, another man is also struggling with his conscience. He is Rached Bussman, a brilliant black defense lawyer, who works for the "Cartel." These are the South American drug lords who control the flow of drugs into the Mideastern states through the marshy coastal lands of North Carolina. Inexorably, these two men are driven toward each other. Each finds himself struggling to protect the ones he loves from evil and crazed Colonel Sutter and his murderous henchman, Ghent. The story is set in the locale of the Neuse River, where I live. It is fiction, based in part on real events and folklore. The character of each individual is real. Their names have been changed; their true identities are only thinly veiled. This book represents, in no small way, my perception of America and its people. The men who make up the "Committee" have been friends or patients of mine over a period of 31 years of medical practice. The Marine on Guadalcanal was Marlin Ritzel. His name was not changed. He did survive the war.
I was going through some bizarre experiences and experiencing sustained witchcraft attacks for about forty-two years. I was not prepared for these sorts of encounters and so didn't understand what was happening. I only felt the pain, hurt, and social ostracism associated with the attacks. God took over my battles; He taught me to pray in warfare, sustained me in the trial, took over my battles, and uplifted me in sustained victories. The world must hear my story and know that God is alive, the same yesterday, today, and forever, so that someone else somewhere, going through similar unexplained problems would find succor and solutions to their problems. Through these experiences, I explored the linkages of such attacks to the better understanding, management, and treatment of mental health and behavioral problems of today, as well as the respective roles for churches, parents and individuals.
A comprehensive description of the UK’s mammal population. Fully illustrated from the author’s extensive photographic collection. This book is the result of over fifty years of studying and photographing the mammals of the UK in their natural environment. It consists of full descriptions of our native mammals and the landscapes in which they live. It concentrates on the larger mammals such as the badger and foxes, but also all the smaller mammals such as stoats, weasels and polecats, and rodents including squirrels, voles and various mouse species. Finally it also describes some introduced animals both long established, such as the rabbit and brown hare, as well as briefer descriptions of the more recently introduced ones such as the mink. The book deals with how some of the mammals, such as the badger, have had their profiles raised through the work of the author together with Dr Ernest Neal. It was the combined work of various badger experts, including Derek Warren and Dr. Neal, and several MPs that resulted in the two badger bills being presented to parliament. The book contains a chapter by Adrian Middleton, a retired veterinary surgeon, on colour variations in mammals where these variations are described in detail. All of these descriptions within the book are accompanied by photographs of the various mammals taken by the author.
