Abstract

Advocates of inclusive education argue that the social inclusion of&#xD;students with special educational needs (SEN) increases when they&#xD;are educated with typically developing peers. However, research&#xD;indicates that this is not apparent for all students with SEN. Students&#xD;with social, emotional and behavioural diffi culties (SEBD) are often&#xD;socially excluded. To understand the situation of these students,&#xD;their voices should be heard. The aim of the current explorative study&#xD;was to gain insight into: (1) the experiences of students with SEBD&#xD;regarding victimisation and social exclusion, and (2) the approaches&#xD;they applied and preferred resolving social problems. We conducted&#xD;semi-structured interviews with 28 socially excluded students from&#xD;grades 5 and 6, attending general ( N = 6) and segregated special&#xD;( N = 21) primary education. The participants were prompted to&#xD;talk about their own experiences using hypothetical scenarios. The&#xD;interviews were analysed using a multi-grounded theory approach.&#xD;The results show that students preferred diff erent approaches to&#xD;resolving these social problems than the applied approaches. They&#xD;would have liked to have seen their peers and teachers to show more&#xD;initiative. In line with these results, the need to listen to the students’&#xD;voices are emphasised.

Abstract

Compassion is an attribute of a person’s affective understanding, which aims to enable, so far as possible, shared experiences of the world’s ills and some alleviation of those ills’ effects.&#xD;Such an attribute is thus of great value within healthcare institutions such as general practices&#xD;and other primary and community healthcare settings. It may characterise the people&#xD;who participate in those institutions; or, it may not so characterise them. The appearance&#xD;of compassion, under certain conditions and even in fragile and incomplete forms, is a kind&#xD;of human excellence, a way of being for the good in community.* Compassion is not, therefore,&#xD;a commodity, to be bought, sold and traded. Although time can be costed, there is no&#xD;line for compassion in any budget. Were compassion to be thought a commodity, one could&#xD;imagine trading it off against some more measurable factor (efficiency, cost-effectiveness, etc.).&#xD;However, our human capacity for compassion, though fragile, tends to resist such marginalisation&#xD;and reductionism.

Abstract

This book focuses on how student teachers for primary and lower secondary school develop competence as teachers of writing. Analyses are based on written, digital dialogues between student teachers, mentors and lecturers during field practice. The dialogues can be characterized as discussions, and are results of SKRIVUT, an intervention study. Using writing as a mediating tool, the goal of SKRIVUT was to facilitate and strengthen the interplay between the two arenas of learning in teacher education.

Abstract

Last Year at Betty and Bob’s: An Adventure is the second in a series of three novellas emerging from a writing practice that taps the cusp of consciousness between dreaming and waking. A storyline, or genealogy, tinted a shade of RGB red, is fashioned by thinking through the felt unthought of this between space — a fabulation, an anarchive of what passes through. Lucid dreaming of this type is rife with allusions to conceptual and material goings-on, manifesting in awkward imaginaries. The dream personas are rendered as complex character amalgams with nomadic ages, sexes, genders, and phenotypes. Occurrences of lived “fact” elide with a hallucinatory real as speculation. In An Adventure, a feral feminist artist collective, The Bettys, inhabit a timeless Arcades Project. This is their experiment in wild hypo-consumerism. The event of Red Betty’s fall generates the advent of a turn. A cleaving. The intra-play of personal politics and activist artistic practices is surreally suffused with attention to color, to life and death, to lightness and heaviness.

Abstract

Last Year at Betty and Bob’s: A Novelty is the first in a series of novellas emerging from a writing practice that taps the cusp of consciousness between dreaming and waking. A storyline, or genealogy, tinted a shade of RGB blue, is fashioned by thinking through the felt unthought of this between space. A fabulation, an anarchive of what passes through. Lucid dreaming of this type is rife with allusions to conceptual and material goings-on, manifesting in awkward imaginaries. The dream personas are rendered as complex character amalgams with nomadic ages, sexes, genders and phenotypes. Occurrences of lived “fact” elide with a hallucinatory real as speculation. In A Novelty, Bette B, an ageing quasi-academic artist researcher, and BØB, attuned urban rodent, are palindromic variants of a generic cast of Betty’s and Bob’s. The happenstance of their meeting on the super slick POMOC (PostOffice MotionCorridor) affects a trans-special contagion. These are the facts of the matter. The matters that come to concern both B’s are more slippery and elusive.

Abstract

The teaching of young children has long been dominated by women. This global phenomenon is firmly rooted in issues related to economic development, urbanization, the position of women in society, cultural definitions of masculinity and the values of children and childcare. Yet, amongst the media scare stories and moral panics about underachieving boys, there are surprisingly few empirically-supported answers to vital questions such as: Is the feminisation of teaching really a problem? How is the relationship of gender and teaching considered within a framework of feminist theory? What are the perceptions of students of teaching, in comparison to other professions? Why are so few men attracted to teaching? Can more men be attracted into the classroom? The authors of this groundbreaking book have undertaken the largest, most in-depth study ever carried out on this topic, in order to assess both teachers and students' views across primary education.

Abstract

In the U.S., when a patient is in need of rigorous psychiatric care, the first step is hospitalization. However, elsewhere in the world, psychiatric home treatment is proposed as an alternative. Model programs in Canada and the United Kingdom are publicly administered by community health agencies or teaching hospitals. Home Treatment for Acute Mental Disorders provides a review of the literature on home care and describes working programs around the world. This timely volume reviews treatment plans for different disorders with case illustrations, explains the administration of a PHC program and offers guidelines to case workers. It will be of interest to psychiatrists and policy makers working on the issue of patient hospitalization.

Abstract

This open access book applies for the first time emerging concepts of socioeconomics to analyse an economic sector, namely agriculture. It considers the rational choices of all actors in the system (just as agricultural economists do) and their cultural preferences and constraints (just as rural sociologists do). Socioeconomic concepts are subsequently used to structure agricultural issues with regard to the three governance mechanisms (hierarchy, markets, and cooperation), and different agricultural systems are presented and compared. The book will be of interest to social scientists with various backgrounds, and seeks to break down the barriers of single-disciplinary thinking.
