Writing in Nonacademic Settings
$55.00
Guilford
March-20-1986Publisher_Guilford Publications
When we think of writing we tend to think of journalism, fiction and poetry, or academic articles and books, forgetting that most writing is never intended for publication. Rather, it is prepared by white-collar employees in the daily performance of their jobs. Ironically, until quite recently composition has been taught be academics who, by and large, were ignorant of the sorts of writing their students would be called upon to do after college in the extra-university settings for which they were being prepared.

Recognizing the critical need among composition instructors for more specific information about nonacademic writing, editors Odell and Goswami present the findings of leading investigators in composition research and suggest how these data might be used to inform writing curricula. This volume offers important insights into the many contexts, forms, and audiences for nonacademic prose, as well as the impact of new communications technologies on the writing process and the written document. Providing a broadening of the concept of writing, and the effect it has on workers in a wide range of settings, this volume will be useful for composition researchers, linguists, students of survey methodology, and all teachers of rhetoric and composition.

July-22-1998Publisher_Guilford Publications
This eagerly awaited volume draws upon the authors' many years of experience in the inner city to provide vital guidance to therapists working with poor families. While standard counseling models are often limited to individual persons and their problems, this book emphasizes the importance of understanding individual needs within a larger family framework, and considering the family itself within broader organizational and community contexts. Weaving in numerous case histories and examples of practical interventions, the authors demonstrate how their inventive approach can be used to draw out clients' strengths and to make the most of limited social service resources. Readers will learn new techniques to gather information, reframe family assumptions, handle conflict, and explore alternative patterns of interaction. In addition, the authors show therapists how to increase the level of collaboration between poor families and the multiple agencies that provide assistance with foster care, substance abuse counseling, perinatal programs, residential and psychiatric centers for children, and home-based services.
