The community support skill standards : tools for managing change and achieving outcomes : skill standards for direct service workers in the human services( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document presents national voluntary skill standards for direct service practitioners working with individuals with and without disabilities, called Community Support Human Service Practitioners (cshsp). A rationale for such standards is presented. The skill standards are then presented, organized around 12 broad, functional themes of human service work: (1) participant empowerment; (2) communication; (3) assessment; (4) community and service networking; (5) facilitation of services; (6) community living skills and support; (7) education, training, and self-development; (8) advocacy: (9) vocational, educational, and career support; (10) crisis intervention; (11) organizational participation; and (12) documentation. For each of the 12 categories of standards, skill standard statements describe a set of associated job functions, activity statements describe specific tasks or work activities involved in that skill area, and performance indicators offer a means of determining whether the practitioner can actually perform the activity. Activities to begin the implementation of the standards in secondary and postsecondary educational contexts are described, including the promotion of a nationally recognized "Certificate of Mastery." Appendices include a list of project participants, results of a survey of degree-granting higher education institutions in this field, and cshsp attributes needed for effective work. (Cr)
The way of the hare by Marianne Taylor( Book )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Brown Hare is an animal we all know but rather rarely see, even though it is quite common, active by day and lives in the wide open spaces of classic lowland countryside. It can make itself almost invisible, lying still in its form until it takes off suddenly, fleeing at astounding, breakneck pace. Those lucky enough to see a hare in a moment of stillness, may see in its staring golden eyes a strangeness and mystery that hints at its legendary status. It is a favourite subject of wildlife artists and sculptors in love with depicting its lithe and leggy form in full flight, and its March mating madness. A nationwide treasure-hunt for a golden hare, sparked by Kit Williams' famous 1979 book Masquerade ended with more mystery than it began. It's smaller cousin, the Mountain Hare, is an even greater mystery, living on bleak uplands where snowfall shuts down access in winter. It changes colour with the seasons and is hunted by the great Golden Eagle, but most of us hardly know it exists. The book explores the lives of both of these hares, in life and in story, and attempts to unravel the real animal from its image in our collective imagination, and examine just why it holds such fascination for us. The book includes accounts of first-hand encounters with wild hares, and interviews with people who have worked with them and studied them. It is illustrated with line drawings and a section of colour photographs taken by the author

Numberland by Marianne Taylor( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world is full of fascinating facts and statistics, but presented without context and in no particular order they can be overwhelming. Numberland: The World in Numbers interprets the world around us through numbers, breaking the most amazing and revealing of facts down to their bare bones. For example, did you know that the average eyelash lasts five months? That 400 quarter-pound hamburgers can be made out of one cow? Or that the average human will grow 590 miles of hair in their lifetime? Ordered in easily digestible sections such as 'Around the World', 'the USA', 'Money', 'Religion' and 'History', the book navigates an ordered path through a noisy world of information overload."--Publisher description
