To assess whether an initiative to reduce gun violence that had been successful in Boston could be adapted for use elsewhere, researchers selected an East Los Angeles area for a similar intervention that was to include both law enforcement and social service components. Although the latter component was not widely available when the intervention began, researchers found that the intervention helped reduce violent and gang crime in the targeted districts and that crime also decreased in surrounding communities.

This is the first book to call for a major paradigm shift in applied sport psychology by providing a wealth of systematic, scientifically validated research in a field where assessment and treatment has often been haphazard. In his quest to bring sport psychology to a higher level of validity, Dr. Carlstedt describes the most current assessment methods, intervention procedures, and promising research that are critical for use in evidence-based practice. These assessment and treatment methods are based on 25 years of rigorous scientific approaches and principles that incorporate the most sophisticated research methods now available. The book describes the mechanisms that influence peak performance or psychological performance deficits and the mental training process, and provides procedures that will take the guesswork out of typical assessment and mental training. It offers tools with which practitioners can reexamine their modus operandi and critically explore the mechanism of interaction outcomes. To this end, the book includes extensive data sets on personality, behavioral tendencies, mind-body responses, and performance outcome. Dr. Carlstedt advocates moving beyond compartmentalized therapeutic sessions in the office to directly observe athletic performance during training and actual competition. The text also contains individual and team case studies to enhance its focus on individualized, efficacy-tested protocols for each individual athlete. Key Features: Presents a detailed client-centered assessment and intervention model grounded in technology-supported, step-by-step procedures, followed by efficacy testing Focuses on the importance of empirical scrutiny and individualized, efficacy-tested protocols for each individual athlete Describes the Carlstedt Protocol containing a visualization efficiency test among many other technologically based assessment and training tools Provides a roadmap for achieving a gold-standard system of accountability Practitioners will learn how to work within Carlstedt's integrative model to improve athlete performance and contribute to the advancement of evidence-based applied sport psychology.

One of the most complex global challenges is improving wellbeing and developing strategies for promoting health or preventing ‘illbeing’ of the population. The role of designers in indirectly supporting the promotion of healthy lifestyles or in their contribution to illbeing has emerged. This means designers now need to consider, both morally and ethically, how they can ensure that they ‘do no harm’ and that they might deliberately decide to promote healthy lifestyles and therefore prevent ill health. Design for Health illustrates the history of the development of design for health, the various design disciplines and domains to which design has contributed. Through 26 case studies presented in this book, the authors reveal a plethora of design research methodologies and research methods employed in design for health. The editors also present, following a thematic analysis of the book chapters, seven challenges and seven areas of opportunity that designers are called upon to address within the context of healthcare. Furthermore, five emergent trends in design in healthcare are presented and discussed. This book will be of interest to students of design as well as designers and those working to improve the quality of healthcare.

To respond to the renewed focus by the occupational therapy profession upon occupation, the fifth edition of Activity Analysis and Application has been updated and renamed to reflect this latest emphasis. While Activity Analysis: Application to Occupation, Fifth Edition maintains the sequential process of learning activity analysis, this step-by-step approach now helps students analyze activity for the purpose of optimizing the client's occupational performance. Gayle Hersch, Nancy Lamport, and Margaret Coffey successfully guide students through the development of clinical reasoning skills critical to planning a client's return to meaningful engagement in valued occupations. The authors utilize a straightforward teaching approach that allows students to progress developmentally in understanding both the analysis and application of activity to client intervention. The Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain and Process, with a prominent focus on occupation as this profession's philosophical basis for practice, has been incorporated in the updated forms and explanations of the activity analysis approach. Activity Analysis: Application to Occupation, Fifth Edition is a worthy contribution to the professional education of occupational therapists in furthering their understanding and application of activity and occupation. Features: The newly titled Client-Activity Intervention Plan that synthesizes the activity analysis into client application. Objectives at the beginning of each unit. Discussion questions and examples of daily life occupations. A Web site including 5 forms where students and practitioners can download and print information for class assignments and clinical settings.
