"Mental health professionals comprise a nation of differences. Those differences do not necessarily make us weak; differences can serve as sources of creativity, strength, and progress if constructively harnessed. In this volume, we have tried to constructively harness the active interplay of these various tenaciously held views, to find the harmony among these diverse voices on EBPs in mental health. In terms of process, informed dialogue and respectful debate are surely the ways to progress. In terms of outcome, we should remember that the overarching goal of EBPs, however defined and disseminated, is to enhance the effectiveness of patient services and to improve public health"--Book.

In her number one bestseller, You Just Don't Understand, Deborah Tannen showed why talking to someone of the other sex can be like talking to someone from another world. Her bestseller Talking from 9 to 5 did for workplace communication what You Just Don't Understand did for personal relationships. Now Tannen is back with another groundbreaking book, this time widening her lens to examine the way we communicate in public--in the media, in politics, in our courtrooms and classrooms--once again letting us see in a new way forces that have been powerfully shaping our lives. The Argument Culture is about a pervasive warlike atmosphere that makes us approach anything we need to accomplish as a fight between two opposing sides. The argument culture urges us to regard the world--and the people in it--in an adversarial frame of mind. It rests on the assumption that opposition is the best way to get anything done: The best way to explore an idea is to set up a debate; the best way to cover the news is to find spokespeople who express the most extreme, polarized views and present them as "both sides"; the best way to settle disputes is litigation that pits one party against the other; the best way to begin an essay is to oppose someone; and the best way to show you're really thinking is to criticize and attack. Sometimes these approaches work well, but often they create more problems than they solve. Our public encounters have become more and more like having an argument with a spouse: You're not trying to understand what the other person is saying; you're just trying to win the argument. But just as spouses have to learn ways of settling differences without inflicting real damage on each other, so we, as a society, have to find constructive and creative ways of resolving disputes and differences. Public discussions require making an argument for a point of view, not having an argument--as in having a fight. The war on drugs, the war on cancer, the battle of the sexes, politicians' turf battles--in the argument culture, war metaphors pervade our talk and shape our thinking. Tannen shows how deeply entrenched this cultural tendency is, the forms it takes, and how it affects us every day--sometimes in useful ways, but often causing, rather than avoiding, damage. In the argument culture, the quality of information we receive is compromised, and our spirits are corroded by living in an atmosphere of unrelenting contention. Tannen explores the roots of the argument culture, the role played by gender, and how other cultures suggest alternative ways to negotiate disagreement and mediate conflicts--and make things better, in public and in private, wherever people are trying to resolve differences and get things done. The Argument Culture is a remarkable book that will change forever the way you perceive the world. You will listen to our public voices in a whole new way.

Alain Chartier was one of medieval France's most influential writers, but has been overlooked by modern criticism. This is the first full-length study of his work in its cultural context. It reconsiders the French verse debates in particular, based on their material context of transmission and on similarities with his French and Latin prose works.

This book explores the construction of Christian identity in fourth and fifth centuries through inventing, fabricating and sharpening binary oppositions. Such oppositions, for example Christians - pagans; truth - falsehood; the one true god - the multitude of demons; the right religion - superstition, served to create and reinforce the Christian self-identity. The author examines how the Christian argumentation against pagans was intertwined with self-perception and self-affirmation. Discussing the relations and interaction between pagan and Christian cultures, this book aims at widening historical understanding of the cultural conflicts and the otherness in world history, thus contributing to the ongoing discussion about the historical and conceptual basis of cultural tolerance and intolerance. This book offers a valuable contribution to contemporary scholarly debate about Late Antique religious history and the relationship between Christianity and other religions.

Debate and Dialogue in Correctional Settings describes how debate can be integrated into existing classroom activities. It offers a new model for debate that emphasizes respectful dialogue, acknowledging counter evidence, and audience participation to facilitate meaningful learning. The model makes extensive use of diagrams, idea maps, and other visual approaches. The DDD model also promotes a range of practical skills, including critical thinking skills, associated more broadly with learning. Perhaps of most utility is the inherent flexibility of the model in meeting the needs of different instructors and classrooms.

This research examines the geographical manifestations of the debates in 2002 over adding sexual orientation antidiscrimination protections within three Florida communities: Miami-Dade County, the City of Orlando, and Collier County. These debates are analyzed within the context of a spatialization of social rights as they take place through community dialogue of the local 'moral landscape'. The overall theoretical dimensions implicated within the spatial diffusion of civil rights protections for sexual minorities are: the spaces of citizenship, community designs on the local political economy, and how the 'culture wars' and local politics coalesce and converge around embodied identity and geographies of inclusion or exclusion. These theoretical designs are approached from two basic scalar aspects: phenomena internal to the individual, and how their particular belief system shapes their geographical imaginations of their community; and culture as a structure of social relations that are writ large through local institutions and regimes. Culture war issues such as gay and lesbian civil rights constitute a distinctive arena of local governance, apart from urban politics as usual. In addition, organizations and individuals that serve as gatekeepers for 'community values' become a key resource in comprehending how morality politics and identity are embedded within notions of the politics of place. While keeping this framework in mind, the debate on anti-discrimination policy that includes sexual orientation was arguably the same for all three places: explosive and divisive. But in other ways, the geographical contingencies of each place exhibit some important and unique differences which greatly impacted the nature of the community debate, as well as the ultimate outcome in passing or rejecting these ordinances.
