The Psychology of Emotion in Restorative Practice: How Affect Script Psychology Explains How and Why Restorative Practice Works

The Psychology of Emotion in Restorative Practice: How Affect Script Psychology Explains How and Why Restorative Practice Works

How and why does restorative practice (RP) work? This book presents the biological theory, affect script psychology (ASP), behind RP, and shows how it works in practice in different settings. ASP explains how the central nervous system triggers 'affects' which are the basis of all human motivation and emotion. The book presents a clear explanation of what ASP is, how it relates to RP, and how ASP helps practitioners to understand relationships, emotions and dynamics in their work. The chapters are based around case studies which demonstrate RP in criminal justice, organizational and education settings. They show how theory links to practice, and how having a deep understanding of the theory has helped practitioners to be successful in their work.Providing an accessible explanation of how RP works, this book will be invaluable to all RP practitioners in any setting, as well as RP students and academics.

Washington's Farewell: The Founding Father’s Warning to Future Generations

Washington's Farewell: The Founding Father’s Warning to Future Generations

“A vivid portrait…A thoughtful consideration of Washington’s wisdom that couldn’t be timelier.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) George Washington’s Farewell Address was a prophetic letter from a “parting friend” to his fellow citizens about the forces he feared could destroy our democracy: hyper-partisanship, excessive debt, and foreign wars.Once celebrated as civic scripture, more widely reprinted than the Declaration of Independence, the Farewell Address is now almost forgotten. Its message remains starkly relevant. In Washington’s Farewell, John Avlon offers a stunning portrait of our first president and his battle to save America from self-destruction. At the end of his second term, Washington surprised Americans by publishing his Farewell message in a newspaper. The President called for unity among “citizens by birth or choice,” advocated moderation, defended religious pluralism, proposed a foreign policy of independence (not isolation), and proposed that education is essential to democracy. He established the precedent for the peaceful transfer of power. Washington’s urgent message was adopted by Jefferson after years of opposition and quoted by Lincoln in defense of the Union. Woodrow Wilson invoked it for nation-building; Eisenhower for Cold Wa...

Christmas in Cayman

Christmas in Cayman

Christmas In Cayman is staged in the early 1960's, in the Birch Tree Hill community, district of West Bay, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. It is a blend of fiction and non-fiction, written with some imagination by including family pets. This book is geared to children 8-15 years old. Iggie, Tommy, and Stubby are friendly inhabitants and indigenous pets for many of the Cayman Islanders. These can be seen and are very popular with families today; it shows just how much fun a family can have while working hard for a cause. Family pets are loved and welcomed into the family circle daily but they are usually cared for on the outside of the family home. Although the family usually tries to understand their pets, neither can they communicate as mentioned or be involved in planning events. The author depicts the Kelly-Vernon family as inspired by the way the older Caymanian folks prepared for Christmas in the early years. This story indicates motivation and encouragement for children to include others while fulfilling positive deeds. The entire family showed determination, genuine work ethic and community spirit. The grandparents influence, parents love, support, encouragement and confidence in the children inspired the entire family's cooperation in helping all to enjoy Christmas time. Pl...
