Now in its sixth edition, School Programs in Speech-Language Pathology: Organization and Service Delivery continues to be a vital resource for faculty, graduate students, school-based practitioners, and program administrators who strive to make a difference in the school setting. The text provides practical solutions and strategies to tackle the challenges faced in the complex and ever-changing education landscape. The authors aim for the book to be an excellent opportunity to stimulate new ways of thinking about the critical role speech-language pathologists (SLP) play in children's education and social development. It provides a foundation for understanding where SLP programs fit within the school organization. SLPs will be motivated to collaborate with colleagues, lead discussions about the link between communication and learning, and introduce innovative models for delivering services. School Programs encourages SLPs to embrace their positions on school teams, share knowledge to make services educationally relevant and help children reach their highest potential.

Joseph B. Lejeune and Cheryl D. Gunter
Gunter and LeJeune have developed and validated a Critical Thinking Scale that allows them to evaluate four levels of critical thinking competence across five dimensions of critical thinking skill in clinical students, clinical practitioners, and clinical administrators. In a series of studies, they have documented the level of critical thinking demonstrated in the completion of various clinical service delivery tasks for simulated patients. The Gunter and LeJeune work has resulted in 26 state and national conference presentations, as well as in the publication of the book, Critical Thinking in Clinical Practice in Speech-Language Pathology.

We are all busy--and we all long for quiet and connection. Yet despite the growing body of evidence supporting the benefits of mindfulness, the hectic pace of modern life leaves little time to devote to meditation, relaxation, and contemplation. In New World Mindfulness, mindfulness teacher and therapist Donald McCown and physician Marc Micozzi provide techniques to successfully integrate mindfulness into real life so we can rise above the stress of work, family, and community that can easily pull us out of the moment and into states of tension, anxiety, or depression.

This master-class-in-a-book is designed to guide teachers of mindfulness-based interventions (MBI) in continuing to develop more competence while raising global standards of practice and pedagogy. Starting with the central yet elusive concept of stewardship, it then expands upon the core components of MBI pedagogy. A series of reflective essays by MBI teachers from around the world foregrounds differences and challenges in meeting participants “where they are.” Such reflections are both inspiring and thought-provoking for teachers ―wherever they are. The book also provides practical guidance and tools for adjusting teaching style and content for special populations, from chronic pain patients to trauma survivors, from health care professionals to clergy, and including many others. Detailed scripts and practices, ready to adopt and adapt, offer opportunities to explore new directions in the classroom, and to continue the life-long development of the teacher.

One of the most pressing questions facing society today is how to care for its burgeoning elderly population. By the year 2050, experts predict that one-third of the world’s population will be over 60 years old. Health promotion for the elderly is therefore becoming an increasingly important topic in public policy and planning.This book examines the challenges presented by an ageing global population, our varying expectations of healthy ageing, and the importance of exercise and physical activity for the elderly. Drawing on empirical research from around the world, it considers the factors that influence health and well-being in later life and compares practices and policies designed to promote healthy ageing. It presents case studies from 15 countries spanning Europe, North and South America, Africa and Asia, and sheds light on how attitudes to physical activity differ across nations, regions and cultures.Ageing, Physical Activity and Health: International Perspectivesis important reading for allstudents, researchers and practitioners with an interest in physical activity, public health, exercise science or gerontology.
