Act Or React. Have you ever been moved to act? Have you ever taken a leap of faith, unsure where you would land? Maybe you weren’t completely ready to quit your job and go out on your own. Maybe you didn’t know how your co-workers would respond when you told them you were going to Uganda on a two-week mission trip. We have all stepped out on faith one time or another, in both big and small ways. But have you ever wondered why? What causes us to speak up when there is silence, what makes us finally put the for-sale sign in our front yard? What if we could pinpoint that moment in time, and figure out what moves people to act? Act or React will take us on a journey of discovery to find out how we go from standing on the sidelines to actually getting inthe game of life and playing with purpose. Author Caz McCaslin, founder and president of Upward Sports, shares his own story to help readers examine the ongoing process which moves us from thinking about doing something to actually doing something. Concepts like Awareness, Passion, Vision, Readiness, and Intentionality, will bring to light what we have to do to live others-focused. Do we react? Do we act? Or do we do both?

Psychoanalysis And Religion Enimies Or Partners . Each of us has a specific way in which we act and react to situations which arise in our lives. We all live by action and reaction. The dynamic of living demands that we respond through action or reaction. Not all of us act and react in the same way as others to life's common circumstances from birth, childhood, adolescence to the adult years. There is no moment in life in which one does not either act or react. Some are quick to act or react, uninhibited and agile, while others are timid, acting and reacting so slowly as to be hardly noticeable. This has been the source of various mishaps and misunderstandings, whether at work, at school, within families or relationships, due to a lack of patience or comprehension toward those whose reaction times are the slower of the two groups. Today's world demands record production times and almost instantaneous reaction times from everyone. Such circumstances are sure to bring about conflict, especially when temperaments of those who influence our actions and reactions are misunderstood. For this very reason not a few employees are let go because market-driven timelines were not met. Households fall apart or are in a state of perpetual tension because one spouse does not comprehend the other on this issue. Parents, children and siblings all claim incompatibility in their relationships with each other, citing the very same motives.

Thoughts I. Thoughts I is an unconventional book. Thoughts I consists of poetry, prose and short stories in an unconventional manner. Thoughts are supposed to take place inside the mind, so the purpose behind Thoughts I is to make the reader think. Reading is supposed to be enjoyable as well as entertaining. Yet because Thoughts I is an unconventional book, it may and mostly will frustrate any reader who conforms to a regimented written style of literature. But for those readers who are looking for something different, Thoughts I may be refreshing and appealing to your senses. Hopefully it will inspire you to think, at the very least. Yet, as the author of Thoughts I, I hope to inspire more then just your mind. I hope to touch your heart and your soul. And if I can do that, then I've accomplished what I've set out to do.

Into The Rainbow. Humor is an important element in good health. We take ourselves too seriously sometimes. This book of common sense is multi-dimensional. It is a collection of thoughts for all ages: children, teens, and adults from all walks of life. It is written to help us think before we act or react too quickly. There are sketches to enhance the ideas shared. The thoughts can be taken literally or if thought about, a deeper meaning can be read "between the lines." Some are humorous and some are more serious. Common Sense to Contemplate is a book to sit down and relax with or share with someone else. Some of the thoughts may sound familiar because you or someone has said them. Remember the book is just common sense. The reader can, also, have the opportunity to share some of his/her common sense in the second book of the series: Common Sense, Too. (See information at the end of the book.) Common sense is just those things that are sometimes apparent, but we are in such a hurry we don't do them. This book helps to remind us of those ideas and actions.

Social Work And The Environment. This ground-breaking new work provides a detailed and extensive comparison of how the physical environment has been conceptualized in social work and other professions, and offers a new and attractive foundational metaphor for social work. The author acknowledges the need for greater awareness and action regarding environmental impacts and the book promotes more comprehensive notions of responsibility, identity, and stewardship that lead to a dynamic metaphor of people as place as the foundation for relevant social work practice in the early 21st century. Why is that a profession with a declared focus on "person-in-environment" has been so silent on the environmental crisis? Mainstream social work theory has narrowed the understanding of environment to include merely the social environment, but this approach is no longer sufficient for participation in multi-disciplinary efforts to tackle urgent environmental issues. Transformative notions of responsibility, identity, and stewardship have been developed on the fringes of our professional community: rural/remote social workers, Aboriginal social workers, and international and spiritual social workers. They must now move to the core of the profession.

Debating Dispositions. Ordinary language and scientific discourse are filled with linguistic expressions for dispositional properties such as "soluble," "elastic," "reliable," and "humorous." We characterize objects in all domains - physical objects as well as human persons - with the help of dispositional expressions. Hence, the concept of a disposition has historically and systematically played a central role in different areas of philosophy ranging from metaphysics to ethics. The contributions of this volume analyze the ancient foundations of the discussion about disposition, examine the problem of disposition within the context of the foundation of modern science, and analyze this dispute up to the 20th century. Furthermore, articles explore the contemporary theories of dispositions.
