A Sensory Education takes a close look at how sensory awareness is learned and taught in expert and everyday settings around the world. Anna Harris shows that our sensing is not innate or acquired, but in fact evolves through learning that is shaped by social and material relations. The chapters feature diverse sources of sensory education, including field manuals, mannequins, cookbooks and flavour charts. The examples range from medical training and forest bathing to culinary and perfumery classes. Offering a valuable guide to the uncanny and taken-for-granted ways in which adults are trained to improve their senses, this book will be of interest to disciplines including anthropology and sociology as well as food studies and sensory studies.

This book disseminates current information pertaining to the modulatory effects of foods and other food substances on behavior and neurological pathways and, importantly, vice versa. This ranges from the neuroendocrine control of eating to the effects of life-threatening disease on eating behavior. The importance of this contribution to the scientific literature lies in the fact that food and eating are an essential component of cultural heritage but the effects of perturbations in the food/cognitive axis can be profound. The complex interrelationship between neuropsychological processing, diet, and behavioral outcome is explored within the context of the most contemporary psychobiological research in the area. This comprehensive psychobiology- and pathology-themed text examines the broad spectrum of diet, behavioral, and neuropsychological interactions from normative function to occurrences of severe and enduring psychopathological processes.
Written by a teacher with many years of experience with pupils with PMLD, this book offers a well-tried approach to delivering the curriculum, with particular emphasis on the core subjects. It aims to complement and supplement existing material and provides a useful resource for busy teachers.
Drawing on ethical and sociological theories of food, this book presents a new approach to food education that moves beyond nutrition-centred education. Food education has gained increasing scientific and political importance in many countries as a promising way to change contemporary eating. However, many practices fail to address two epistemological obstacles regarding its very components – ‘food’ and ‘education’. Food has largely been thought of from a nutritionistic viewpoint alone and the ethical issues over children’s freedom of choice and well-being have been absent. This book resolves these problems by applying ethical and sociological theories of food and analysing food education in two pioneering countries: Japan and France. The book focuses on taste education and gastronomy as two key concepts which have great potential to positively impact food education. Taste education is a promising alternative to nutrition-centred pedagogy which foregrounds the experience and pleasure of eating food, creating an environment for taste sensibility and food curiosity. From taste education, the picture can be broadened to examine the role and impact of gastronomy in food education. Examining the cultural traditions of France and Japan reveals how gastronomy can impact eating habits and food cultures and how these criteria should be an intrinsic part of food education. The book concludes by constructing an integrative theory for food education that moves beyond nutrition-centred education for the benefit of one’s well-being. This book will greatly interest students, scholars, policymakers and educators working on food education, food-related issues at the intersection between nutritional and social sciences, and ‘gastronomes’ searching for a pedagogical guide for developing their capabilities to eat in a more humanistic way.
This fully revised and updated edition takes into account current changes in educational policy to provide the reader with comprehensive information about understanding and working with young children with special needs.
First edition named a Doody's Core Title and winner of an AJN Book of the Year Award! "This is truly a contribution to the hands-on clinical literature....This book can serve as a resource for nurses working in inpatient psychiatry, nursing students, and nursing faculty who teach undergraduate psychiatric nursing."—Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries "[A] great book for inpatient psychiatric nurses."—Doody's Medical Reviews Psychiatric nursing practice has changed dramatically to accommodate increasing patient acuity and an evolving healthcare landscape. In addition, the inter-relationship of medical illness and psychiatric symptoms can make treatment and care challenging for nurses regardless of where they practice. Inpatient Psychiatric Nursing: Clinical Strategies, Medical Considerations, and Practical Interventions reflects these factors by focusing on four particularly challenging aspects: keeping the patient safe, stabilizing symptoms, promoting engagement in treatment, and discharge planning. In a systematic, easy-to-access format, it offers evidence-based interventions and concrete strategies that can be used alleviate patient distress and effectively deliver care. This expanded and updated second edition is organized according to patient behaviors and interventions that nurses can employ to manage those behaviors. Each behavioral-focused chapter follows a consistent format so that readers can easily locate key information at point of care and concludes with a quick-reference table that summarizes goals, patient assessment, maintenance of safety, appropriate interventions, and next steps. The book also addresses a variety of medical conditions that may be complicated by psychiatric illness or have symptoms that may be erroneously attributed to mental illness. This symptomatic approach provides guidance for nurses and other healthcare professionals working with patients with behavioral disturbances—regardless of the cause or the practice setting.
