How do the good become great? Practice! From musicians and executives to physicians and drivers, aspiring professionals rely on deliberate practice to attain expertise. Recently, researchers have explored how psychotherapists can use the same processes to enhance the effectiveness of psychotherapy supervision for career-long professional development. Based on this empirical research, this edited volume brings together leading supervisors and researchers to explore a model for supervision based on behavioral rehearsal with continuous corrective feedback. Demonstrating how this model complements and enhances a traditional, theory-based approach, the authors explore practical methods that readers can use to improve the effectiveness of their own psychotherapy training and supervision. This book is the 2018 Winner of the American Psychological Association Supervision & Training Section's Outstanding Publication of the Year Award.

Breaking the Cycle of Failed School Reform

This book demonstrates how school reforms of the past 200 years share many common flaws. Based on an intensive three-year study of school reform in the United States, Breaking the Cycle of Failed School Reform analyzes and critiques the following historical reform movements: Lancastrian Plan, 1806; Age-graded Plan, 1848; Gary Plan, 1906; Trump Plan, 1959; School Development Plan, 1968; and Coalition of Essential Schools, 1984. Emerging from the study was a set of reform rubrics. These six rubrics, each corresponding to twenty-six distinct variables, provide today's educators a lens through which their schools can be assessed against the historic plans. This process allows educators to easily determine their school's strengths and weaknesses with a strong sense of historical perspective. The book concludes with a set of recommendations for practitioners, policy developers, and researchers for what has to be included if school reform is to be successful in the future.

"In 1987, the U.S. Congress established the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award program to raise awareness about the importance of quality and performance excellence as a competitive edge. Since 1999, the program has outlined criteria for educational institutions to align their mission, values, goals, processes, and resources into a comprehensive, long-term, systematic improvement effort. The book profiles six unique institutions that have successfully implemented these criteria: the Montfort College of Business at the University of Northern Colorado, National University, New Mexico State University-Carlsbad, Northwest Missouri State University, University of Wisconsin-Stout, and Western Wisconsin Technical College. The University of Wisconsin-Stout was the first higher education institution to win the Baldrige Award in 2001, and has since worked with educational institutions in 39 states and 25 countries that are interested in implementing quality improvement through the application of the Baldrige criteria. This book will appeal to academic administrators at all levels and at all types of institutions who are interested in applying a systematic approach to leadership, quality improvement, and change management within their institutions"--Unedited summary from book cover.

Shame Images of God and the Cycle of Violence in Adults who Experienced Childhood Corporal Punishment

Theoretically rich and empirically sound, this provocative study demonstrates that shame, a history of childhood corporal punishment, and certain religious beliefs are contributing factors to the cycle of violence that can occur over generations in families. Good begins her study with a thorough survey of the psychological and pastoral literature that deals with issues surrounding shame, corporal punishment, and beliefs about God. She then describes the results of her research that involved having individuals complete questionnaires on childhood punishment, religious practices, and feelings about suicide and depression. These results were then compared with those from tests designed to measure shame, guilt, and violence between adult partners. Good's research suggests that higher levels of violence and shame correspond with punitive images of God and that childhood corporal punishment may result in a higher incidence of adult depression. This fascinating work provides insight into psychological issues that affect many adults today and will be of interest to anyone who is concerned with healing the wounds of those who suffered through childhood violence.
