This book explores the relevance of literature and the performing and visual arts for effective clinical psychotherapy. There is a growing interest in the use of the arts in psychotherapy, in part due to an increasing awareness of the limitations in verbal communication and scepticism towards traditional forms of medical treatment. Gathering together perspectives from international practitioners this volume embraces the value of a range of mediums to psychotherapy, from film and photo-therapy to literature and narrative therapy. Based on theoretical studies, clinical expertise and experiential learning, authors offer detailed guidelines on the value of various art forms in practice.

There are dozens of other funding directories describing college aid. But, none of them are like this one. First, unlike other directories, the High School Senior's Guide focuses only on merit and no-need scholarships. Not one of the programs covered here requires financial need. Plus, only programs open to college-bound high school seniors are included. No more scanning through hundreds of listings that apply to currently-enrolled college students, not to you. In addition, the entries here are grouped by discipline, so you can go directly to the area you want to study. Not sure what your major will be? No problem. There's even a section listing programs that are open to support studies in any area. The High School Senior's Guide provides the only way to find money for college based soley on academic record, writing or artistic ability, speech-making skills, athletic success, high school club membership, religious or ethnic background, parents' military or organizational activities, and even pure luck in random drawings. Perhaps that's why College Financial Aid gave the High School Senior's Guide 4 stars--its highest rating!

The Mobil Travel Guide star ratings are a 45-year-old consumer advocacy concept originally developed following the introduction of the interstate highway system. The goal of the Guide is not to identify and rate every property in the country, but to recommend only the best in each category, ones that we would send our customers to. We look at the stars from a consumer's point of view, rating lodgings and restaurants across North America from the perspective of the "average traveler."The Guides feature new enhanced descriptions for 2004. Listings include lodgings, restaurants, attractions, and events in established travel destinations, as well as cities and towns on the way to established travel destinations. Our new easy-to-use format makes the Guides even more indispensable to travelers. Each regional guide is organized alphabetically by state, with introductory information about the state followed by city listings in alphabetical order. For each city, the guide lists sites and attractions, lodgings, and then restaurants. One of the features that sets the Mobil Travel Guide apart from its competitors is its proprietary Mobil star rating system. Forty-five plus years of publishing experience and the oldest non-biased rating system in North America make the Mobil Travel Guide series a must-have for travelers wanting up-to-date ratings of hotels and restaurants.
