The Art and Science of Personalising Care with Older People with Diabetes by Trisha Dunning Summary

This unique book is intended for all health professionals caring for older people with diabetes such as specialist and general nurses, doctors, primary care practioners and dieteticians. Although there is an increasing body of work about personalised care, no publications were identified that encompass the focus and scope of the proposed book. The global population is ageing and increasing age is a key risk factor for diabetes. Older people with diabetes are often vulnerable, have complex care needs and often have cognitive changes, which makes personalising care challenging for health professionals. Thus, this is an internationally relevant book filling a gap in the current literature. This is a practical and updated book that will use an engaging and easy to read narrative style. It challenges readers to reflect in and on their practice. It encompasses people with diabetes’ and authors’ stories, which are known to have a special interest to readers, make it easier to apply the information to practice, enhance learning, and hence the relevance and value of the book. It is relevant to advocacy organisations as well as managers and service planners. Researchers and scientists may find relevant information on grant and ethics applications, research protocols, plain language statements for potential participants and operationalising research protocols.

Roald Hoffmann on the Philosophy, Art, and Science of Chemistry by Jeffrey Kovac,Michael Weisberg Summary

Nobel laureate Roald Hoffmann's contributions to chemistry are well known. Less well known, however, is that over a career that spans nearly fifty years, Hoffmann has thought and written extensively about a wide variety of other topics, such as chemistry's relationship to philosophy, literature, and the arts, including the nature of chemical reasoning, the role of symbolism and writing in science, and the relationship between art and craft and science. In Roald Hoffmann on the Philosophy, Art, and Science of Chemistry, Jeffrey Kovac and Michael Weisberg bring together twenty-eight of Hoffmann's most important essays. Gathered here are Hoffmann's most philosophically significant and interesting essays and lectures, many of which are not widely accessible. In essays such as "Why Buy That Theory," "Nearly Circular Reasoning," "How Should Chemists Think," "The Metaphor, Unchained," "Art in Science," and "Molecular Beauty," we find the mature reflections of one of America's leading scientists. Organized under the general headings of Chemical Reasoning and Explanation, Writing and Communicating, Art and Science, Education, and Ethics, these stimulating essays provide invaluable insight into the teaching and practice of science.

The Art and Science of Working Together by Christine Thornton Summary

The Art and Science of Working Together: Practising Group Analysis in Teams and Organizations is a primary resource for anyone wishing to learn more about the complex unconscious dynamics of organizations, providing a practical guide for organizational work, a guide to how to improve things, and a strong theoretical foundation in the group analytic concept of the ‘tripartite matrix’.

Leaders and leading consultants give case studies, describing their thinking as they work, to illustrate the theory in action. This essential new resource will allow clinically trained practitioners to extend their scope into organizational work, and all coaches and leaders to benefit from knowledge of the group analytic discipline. It is essential reading for consultants and coaches working with teams and organizations, and for leaders within organizations.

The Art and Science of Valuing in Psychotherapy by JoAnne Dahl,Tobias Lundgren,Jennifer Plumb-Vilardaga,Ian Stewart Summary

Valuing is central to acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), yet few therapists truly understand how to engage clients in this complex process. Questions such as What is the purpose of my life? and How do I make decisions? are difficult to answer honestly for ourselves, let alone share with another person. The Art and Science of Valuing in Psychotherapy is the mental health practitioner's complete guide to helping clients identify their values and apply them to their lives in practical ways. You will also learn to establish your own values as a professional, which may shift from client to client, and act in accordance with these values in therapy. The book provides you with practical tools for conducting values work, including easy-to-understand metaphors, defusion exercises, guided imagery exercises, scripts for role play, client worksheets, assessment quizzes, and more. Once you've mastered the art and science of valuing, you'll find out just how broad the applications for values work can be for conceptualization and interventions in the workplace, in organizations, and on the community level, and discover how effective values work can be for tapping into your clients' capacity for change. [The Art and Science of Valuing in Psychotherapy] will illuminate how a focus on values can inform every aspect of psychotherapy, from case conceptualization to the therapeutic relationship. At once accessible and profound... highly recommended. -Steven C. Hayes, Ph.D., University of Nevada Foundation Professor of Psychology at the University of Nevada, Reno

The Art and Science of Transformational Leadership by Raghurami Reddy Etukuru Summary

Transformation is a process of bringing radical change to the context that sets a new direction and takes the organization to an entirely different level of effectiveness with little to no resemblance to the past. There is always a need for positive change and for transforming people’s lives regardless of what has been achieved so far by the organization or the society. There is always room for people to dream big, think big, make a difference, and make an impact to bring about transformative change. Transformation is required in virtually any field, whether it is business, technology, education, health care, banking, agriculture, politics, poverty reduction, entertainment, transportation, cities, or manufacturing. Transforming an organization or the lives of people within a society is purely a leadership-based mission that requires a creative and innovative mind-set. The aspects of the transformation process include purpose-driven vision, creativity, innovation, design thinking, agile transformation, cultural transformation, digital capabilities, human experience transformation, and business model transformation. Transformational leadership is about envisioning the future and making it brighter by way of bringing about transformative change. Transformational leaders must be courageous and empathetic. Several qualities that transformational leaders need to possess in order to embrace transformation include vision, creativity, inspiration, courage, collaboration, commitment, empathy, and emotional intelligence. These aspects, along with their appropriate components and subcomponents, are discussed in The Art and Science of Transformational Leadership.

Leadership by Larry F. Ross Sr. Summary

Leadership plays a major role in everything that we do in life. Though effective leadership is a personal role that requires individual thinking and attainment, one must make sure that it is focused on the overall success of the organization. However, there are other roles that are directly tied up in what we call leadership and some of the roles include self-leading, managing change, empowering people, leading by example, delegating authority, facilitating cooperation, and building and leading a team.Leadership is not just power but for the most part, it is about relationships. Leadership is also about one s power to reward and punish in a nondiscriminatory manner. To have a certain style or persona that ensures people will support your implementation of goals for the success of the organization. However, at the end of the day, you will never get there without fi rst leading oneself to do the right thing in all of your endeavors. One learns leadership by being a leader.This cannot happen unless you have the proper skills (visionary, trustworthy, inspirational, etc.) because leaders must balance many roles to be successful. However, sometimes you need help to guide and remind you how to take a course of action. This book serves as a sounding board to help guide you with its recording of best practices. Climb the ladder of leadership; hired, trainee, mentor, team lead, supervisor, manager, and executive and let people know that you can successfully lead with every step you take.
