Background:Little research has been undertaken on children and adolescents with psychiatric co-morbidity and this group is seldom subject to evidence-based treatment. Equally, there has been little research on creating an evidence base for Narrative Therapy, which means that narrative family therapy (NFT) is seldom available to children and adolescents with a psychiatric disorder.Objective:A single group clinical design was used to examine the efficacy of NFT for children and adolescents with

used to examine territoriality as it relates to Antarctica. The next section examines the relationship between state border narratives and Antarctic narratives, raising questions about their different effects. The methodology section outlines the case study, involving documents and observations of processes from New Zealand, supplemented by materials from Argentina and the Secretariat of the Antarctic Treaty. The analysis is built around three type of narrative effects – narrative translation

the status of the artist within the boundaries of the art institution. Seen from a perspective interested in exile and migration, this is interesting in itself. Western art institutions tend to favor white western masculinity and its artistic and literary traditions and artists, leaving less room for narratives or aesthetics that do not reference the canon or that do not fall neatly into the frames of a western narrative. Not every artist’s ‘kiss’ carries the same authority, and not all travelling

This paper argues that assessment practices used by teachers in schools and early childhood services, including narrative approaches, provide accessible, authentic, low-cost, and easily administered assessment. Assessment for learning embeds assessment within teaching and learning and supports teachers to work in collaboration with parents and children to deepen understanding of children’s strengths and interests, and to support relationships. Further, assessment for learning provides an

semen, fetus and abortion through some of the other narrative strains of this novel, transgresses our sense of cleanliness. I claim that the aesthetic use of the abject emphasises the literary characters’ outside position which is, at the same time, shaking pre-established conceptions of Italian culture and identity. They have themselves become abjects in the eyes of many of their fellow Italians. The characters also use acts of abjection as a means of dealing with their complex identity; through

the general narrative discourse of the novel. The analyses will consider how place names contribute to the representation, mapping and appropriation of the spaces and places in which the protagonist visits and lives.
Place names have for a long time been studied in linguistics, yet the acknowledgment of their emotional and political impact is quite recent. The study of place names has mainly been related to reflections in various disciplines on their role in processes of de-colonisation (e.g. Rose

The distribution of the native orange (Capparis mitchellii) in the Northern Flinders Ranges of South Australia is limited generally to a narrow corridor running from Moolawatana Station in the north, to Baratta Springs in the south, on the eastern side of the Ranges. The association of this favoured ‘bush tucker’ species with Aboriginal occupation sites within that area, and an Adnyamathanha narrative tradition which attributes the origin of the tree in this area to direct human intervention

Setting up a brand new primary school is always a challenge but with limited resources this challenge is exacerbated. A model of curriculum, developed by James Beane (1997) and defined as “Integrated Curriculum”, which used a democratic approach, was trialled in the new school. It was co-constructed with students and had not been previously used in a full primary school before in New Zealand. This proved to be yet another challenge. In this reflective narrative, the Foundation

Providing a very different perspective on social justice, this narrative explores and discusses the inherent social justice tensions of being a Māori educator (indigenous to Aotearoa New Zealand) within a mainstream nonindigenous higher education institution in New Zealand. Here the social justice tension is not so much about how to help others but how to correlate widely accepted professional standards and practices with competing personal cultural sensitivities and insights. Specifically

The third part of the paper suggests an alternative definition which allows extending research to include a psychological perspective onto the movement and incorporates the motivation of the creators and users of low-tech architecture. Based on the case study of Paulina Wojciechowska’s work and the newly proposed definition combined with a model based on the psychological theory developed by Erich Fromm, the paper attempts to introduce a narrative that reveals more about low-tech than
