Presenting cutting-edge research conducted with children, adolescents, and their caregivers, this e-book examines cognitive factors in the development of psychopathology. Investigators at the forefront of the field discuss different types of cognitive vulnerability and their links to depression, anxiety, and externalizing symptoms. Also addressed is how cognitive vulnerability itself develops, including the role of child-parent interactions, maternal depression, and physiological processes. Innovative assessment approaches are described. This material was originally published as a special section of the International Journal of Cognitive Therapy (Vol. 5, No. 3, 2012), editor, John H. Riskind, PhD.
This book is an essay on how people make sense of each other and the world they live in. Making sense is the activity of fitting something puzzling into a coherent pattern of mental representations that include concepts, beliefs, goals, and actions. Paul Thagard proposes a general theory of coherence as the satisfaction of multiple interacting constraints, and discusses the theory's numerous psychological and philosophical applications. Much of human cognition can be understood in terms of coherence as constraint satisfaction, and many of the central problems of philosophy can be given coherence-based solutions. Thagard shows how coherence can help to unify psychology and philosophy, particularly when addressing questions of epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, politics, and aesthetics. He also shows how coherence can integrate cognition and emotion.
Dimension three is an important test-bed for hypotheses in higher category theory and occupies something of a unique position in the categorical landscape. At the heart of matters is the coherence theorem, of which this book provides a definitive treatment, as well as covering related results. Along the way the author treats such material as the Gray tensor product and gives a construction of the fundamental 3-groupoid of a space. The book serves as a comprehensive introduction, covering essential material for any student of coherence and assuming only a basic understanding of higher category theory. It is also a reference point for many key concepts in the field and therefore a vital resource for researchers wishing to apply higher categories or coherence results in fields such as algebraic topology or theoretical computer science.
This book is about places which expand the meanings of "home," "neighborhood," and "community." We wrote it to share the inspiration we found in these places with others who have also dreamed of a home that not only provides shelter, but is also part of a community. We hope that this book will inspire people to take a more active role in creating the home and neighborhood they want to live in.

The purpose of this book is to provide the reader with an overview of the types of coins commonly found in the soil of Britain. Coin finds occur with surprising regularity and are commonly uncovered by gardeners and building workers, but more often by archaeologists and metal detector users. Although there are numerous catalogues available for reference, these tend to be quite expensive and also very detailed, listing numerous coins that, while familiar to collectors, rarely if ever find their way into the ground as casual losses. The aim of this book is to provide a 'one-stop shop' for the entire range of coins, tokens and counters most commonly found in Britain and to serve as a point of first reference for academics, collectors, metal detector users and history students alike.

From the critically acclaimed author of The Man Who Turned Into Himself and Superstition comes a truly bizarre and mind-twisting tale of murder, suspense, and coincidence. Isn't it odd how you can just be thinking about someone and they happen to call you on the phone that very moment? Or when you come across a picture of a friend you haven't seen in years and she suddenly bumps into you on the street the next day? That type of thing happened to George all the time, which is why he started investigating the fascinating world of coincidences and synchronicities. In fact, it's while writing a book on the subject that the most remarkable experience of his life occurs: he runs into Larry Hart, the identical twin brother he never knew he had. Or so he believes. As George gets to know this newfound twin brother, stranger and stranger things begin happening, until George realizes that Larry is not really his identical twin, but someone else entirely. While trying to get to the bottom of the identity of his mysterious twin, George discovers the real reason for coincidences and synchronicities-and why they're not nearly as innocent as they seem. Based on the real metaphysics of synchronicities, COINCIDENCE is a chilling and suspenseful novel about one man's search for the reason behind coincidences-and the shocking and murderous truths he uncovers.

It's only a matter of time before the two fall in love...but when the truth comes out, can Lou overlook the past to chase her future?
