The book is divided into four sections: an overview of the mental health of indigenous peoples; origins and representations of social suffering; transformations of identity and community; and traditional healing and mental health services. Cross-cutting themes include: the impact of colonialism, sedentarization, and forced assimilation; the importance of land for indigenous identity and an ecocentric self; notions of space and place as part of the cultural matrix of identity and experience; and processes of healing and spirituality as sources of resilience.
Offering a unique combination of mental health and socio-cultural perspectives, Healing Traditions will be useful to all concerned with the wellbeing of Aboriginal peoples including health professionals, community workers, planners and administrators, social scientists, educators, and students.

Abstract
Although office and administrative activities are usually 60 percent of the production costs in most manufacturing organizations, these areas often get excluded during lean initiatives. To achieve lean, office activities must fully support shop floor manufacturing operations to eliminate waste. The adoption of 5S throughout all office and administrative functions is the first step to increase efficiency.
In 5S for the Office: Organizing the Workplace to Eliminate Waste, Tom Fabrizio and Don Tapping bring the concepts of the 5S System -- effective tools for the elimination of waste on the shop floor -- into the office environment. The activities at the heart of 5S for the Office (organizing, ordering, cleaning, standardizing, and sustaining all of these) are completely logical. They are the basic rules for managing any effective workplace. However, it is the systematic method with which the 5S system approaches these activities that makes it unique.
This book is a blueprint for building a Lean foundation for your office
Readers of this book can immediately apply the concepts of 5S to their office and administrative activities, resulting in the elimination of waste, reduced production costs, and increased profits.
To introduce the 5S system and sell its use to executives as well as workers, consider purchasing

The very choice itself of one word or expression over another can determine feelings and attitudes and--most importantly--actions. In order to demonstrate their complex concept of the role of language in transformational learning, they offer this book, in part, as an instruction manual for collaborative exercises in self-assessment. They identify seven languages that one should adopt to overcome both internal and organization resistance to change.

Abstract
Superovulation causes detrimental effects, including embryonic loss and implantation failure. This study determined potential roles for insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I) in uterine environment regulation and preimplantation development, in conjunction with the detrimental effects of superovulation in the rat. IGF-I may be beneficial to preimplantation embryonic development. IGF-I stimulated embryonic development and metabolism in vitro and increased the rate of implantation and fetal development when the blastocysts were transferred into a receptive uterus.

Abstract
Remodeling of the endometrial extracellular matrix, which occurs during the early stages of pregnancy in the human, is mediated by the temporal expression of urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA) and matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) in both the maternal and fetal compartments and counterbalanced by their respective endogenous inhibitors, plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1) and tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs) in both an autocrine and paracrine manner. To date, the factors capable of regulating the expression of uPA and MMP proteolytic systems at the maternal-fetal interface remain poorly characterized.

Abstract
The always-on, striving for more, multitasking, 24/7 world we live in is having its toll. We are getting busier, but not happier. While the "time management" movement created more list-makers, it failed to address the heart of why "To-Do's" tended to trump time for family, and time to think, reflect, and plan was replaced by a bulging email Inbox.The author presents a model for getting to the heart of why we never seem to have enough time and how to create the time we actually need. A past workaholic, successful business owner, and consultant to large corporations, Culver knows a lot about being busy and what defines success. His solution is to first redefine the beliefs that drive the behavior and from there reset priorities, create better systems, practice better habits, and finally, invest in reflection, review, and renewal.

Abstract
Written by one of the leading researchers in First Nations and Inuit Health, this is the only entry-level text to address the current state of knowledge in the field of aboriginal health.The book places aboriginal health in Canada within its historical and philosophical context as it addresses social and clinical approaches to major health issues facing this population. It discusses the distinctive features of aboriginal health and healing as opposed to traditional Western medicine and why it should be studied as a discrete field.
Using the thread of cultural safety throughout, the text introduces students to health concerns facing the aboriginal population in general, with a special focus on the needs of women and children. The text provides a framework for professionals to approach aboriginal clients in a way that will both respect their worldviews and retain their own professional epistemology. Chapters are consistently formatted to include chapter objectives, case studies, critical thinking exercises, key concepts and terms, and recommended websites. The text adheres to the CASN/ANAC/CAN framework for teaching cultural competence and safety in regard to aboriginal health, and meets the needs of a curriculum that is highly recommended and will likely be required in the near future.Included with the text are an instructor'Äôs manual, study guide, and sample exams.

Abstract
Helping to promote healing in Aboriginal people with addiction and mental health issues requires specialized knowledge and unique skills. Health, social service and justice workers must first have a grasp of history and the emotional legacy that today's generation of Aboriginal people carry. They must also be prepared to blend Aboriginal and Western approaches to match their clients' unique world views. Journey to Healing is a comprehensive and practical evidence-based resource. It was written to help prepare students and professionals to provide counselling and social services to Aboriginal people with mental health and addiction issues in urban, rural and isolated settings. The scope of the book is broad; each chapter focuses on a specific topic. Many of the authors are Aboriginal and all are respected experts in their fields. Each author shares his or her scholarly learning, insight, wisdom and experience of addressing addiction and mental health issues in Aboriginal populations. The guide is intended to serve as a course text for health, social service and justice programs in universities and community colleges. It will also be of interest to social workers, addiction and mental health service providers, and prison, probation, parole and police officers working with Aboriginal communities.

Abstract
The "primes" are universal and unavoidable patterns of group behavior that emerge whenever people attempt to transform systems or collaborate to solve complex problems. Every change agent has felt their effect, but few can recognize, anticipate, and manage them. Unacknowledged, the primes can put any leadership agenda at risk. Once mastered, the primes become a force that drives intended outcomes. The Primes is a field manual for anyone ready to step up to serious challenges, predict and manage inevitable problems, create a brighter future, and produce extraordinary results.
An essential guide for 21st century problem solvers and change agents, The Primes unveils 46 universal secrets of how to:
Tackle complex problems successfully and deliver extraordinary results on time
Forge lasting consensus among competing interests and keep teams focused and productive
Recognize and eliminate the most destructive forces in an organization
Establish cultures of integrity
The Primes gives leaders the edge they need to succeed. Once the primes are revealed, you'll see them everywhere!

Abstract
It is the rise from falling that Brown takes as her subject in Rising Strong. As a grounded theory researcher, Brown has listened as a range of people?from leaders in Fortune 500 companies and the military to artists, couples in long-term relationships, teachers, and parents?shared their stories of being brave, falling, and getting back up. She asked herself, What do these people with strong and loving relationships, leaders nurturing creativity, artists pushing innovation, and clergy walking with people through faith and mystery have in common? The answer was clear: They recognize the power of emotion and they?re not afraid to lean in to discomfort.

Abstract
Pre-eclampsia, which is characterized by maternal hypertension, proteinuria, hypoperfusion of end organs and a systemic maternal innate inflammatory response, is a leading cause of maternal mortality and morbidity world-wide. When of early-onset, pre-eclampsia is associated with fetal intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). IUGR can occur in isolation, so-called normotensive IUGR. What is poorly understood is that some women develop the maternal syndrome of pre-eclampsia whilst others have only the fetal syndrome (normotensive IUGR), despite the fact that the initiating event in both is believed to be reduced uteroplacental perfusion.

Abstract
The Wisdom of Teams is the definitive work on how to create high-performance teams in any organization. Having sold nearly a half million copies and been translated into more than fifteen languages, the authors? clarion call that teams should be the basic unit of organization for most businesses has permanently shaped the way companies reach the highest levels of performance.
Using engaging case studies and testimonials from both successful and failed teams?ranging from Fortune 500 companies to the U.S. Army to high school sports?the authors explain the dynamics of teams both in great detail and with a broad view. Their conclusions and prescriptions span the familiar to the counterintuitive:
Commitment to performance goals and common purpose is more important to team success than team building.
Opportunities for teams exist in all parts of the organization.
Real teams are the most successful spearheads of change at all levels.
Working in teams naturally integrates performance and learning.
Team endings can be as important to manage as team beginnings.
