Now in its fourth edition, Behavioral Research and Analysis: An Introduction to Statistics within the Context of Experimental Design presents an overview of statistical methods within the context of experimental design. It covers fundamental topics such as data collection, data analysis, interpretation of results, and communication of findings. New in the Fourth Edition: Extensive improvements based on suggestions from those using this book in the classroom Statistical procedures that have been developed and validated since the previous edition Each chapter in the body now contains relevant key words, chapter summaries, key word definitions, and end of chapter exercises (with answers) Revisions to include recent changes in the APA Style Manual When looking for a book for their own use, the authors found none that were totally suitable. They found books that either reviewed the basics of behavioral research and experimental design but provided only cursory coverage of statistical methods or they provided coverage of statistical methods with very little coverage of the research context within which these methods are used. No single resource provided coverage of methodology, statistics, and communication skills. In a classic example of necessity being the mother of invention, the authors created their own. This text is ideal for a single course that reviews research methods, essential statistics through multi-factor analysis of variance, and thesis (or major project) preparation without discussion of derivation of equations, probability theory, or mathematic proofs. It focuses on essential information for getting a research project completed without prerequisite math or statistics training. It has been revised many times to help students at a variety of academic levels (exceptional high school students, undergraduate honors students, masters students, doctoral students, and post-doctoral fellows) across varied academic disciplines (e.g., human factors and ergonomics, behavioral and social sciences, natural sciences, engineering, exercise and sport sciences, business and management, industrial hygiene and safety science, health and medical sciences, and more). Illustrating how to plan, prepare, conduct, and analyze an experimental or research report, the book emphasizes explaining statistical procedures and interpreting obtained results without discussing the derivation of equations or history of the method. Destined to spend more time on your desk than on the shelf, the book will become the single resource you reach for again and again when conducting scientific research and reporting it to the scientific community.

Integumentary Essentials: Applying the Preferred Physical Therapist Practice PatternsSM answers the call to what today’s physical therapy students and clinicians are looking for when integrating the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice as it relates to the integumentary system in clinical care. As a part of Essentials in Physical Therapy led by Series Editor Dr. Marilyn Moffat, Integumentary Essentials: Applying the Preferred Physical Therapist Practice PatternsSM is edited by Katherine Biggs Harris in a user-friendly format that not only brings together the conceptual frameworks of the Guide language, but also parallels the patterns of the Guide. In each case, where appropriate, a brief review of the pertinent anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, imaging, and pharmacology is provided. Each pattern then details three diversified case studies coinciding with the Guide format. The physical therapist examination, including history, systems review, and specific tests and measures for each case, as well as evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, plan of care, and evidence-based interventions are also addressed. Sample Cases in Some of the Practice Patterns Include: -Primary Prevention/Risk Reduction for Integumentary Disorders: A patient with multiple sclerosis; an octogenarian in skeletal traction; a patient with rheumatoid arthritis -Impaired Integumentary Integrity Associated With Superficial Skin Involvement: A patient burned from a splash injury; a patient with a CVA and a pressure area; a patient with a deep vein thrombosis, cellulitis and edema -Impaired Integumentary Integrity Associated With Partial-Thickness Skin Involvement and Scar Formation: A patient with a vascular ulcer; a patient with mixed vascular disease and pressure ulcer; a patient with a superficial partial-thickness burn -Impaired Integumentary Integrity Associated With Full-Thickness Skin Involvement and Scar Formation: A patient with a neuropathic wound; a patient with a full-thickness traumatic, arterial insufficient wound; a patient with a full-thickness infected wound -Impaired Integumentary Integrity Associated With Skin Involvement Extending Into Fascia, Muscle, Bone, and Scar Formation: A patient with infection in a post-traumatic wound extending to the bone; a patient pre-operative for free flap surgical coverage of a sacral pressure ulcer; a patient post free flap reconstruction of an electrical wound At long last, Dr. Marilyn Moffat and Katherine Biggs Harris have created a book that will integrate the parameters of the Guide, as it relates to the integumentary system, into the practice arena, that not only covers the material but also allows for a problem-solving approach to learning for educators and students.

Reconceptualizing the Literacies in Adolescents' Lives, Second Edition focuses on exploring the impact of young people's identity-making practices in mediating their perceptions of themselves as readers and writers in an era of externally mandated reforms. What is different in the Second Edition is its emphasis on the importance of valuing adolescents' perspectives - in an era of skyrocketing interest in improving literacy instruction at the middle and high school levels driven by externally mandated reforms and accountability measures. A central concern is the degree to which this new interest takes into account adolescents’ personal, social, and cultural experiences in relation to literacy learning. In this new edition of Reconceptualizing the Literacies in Adolescents’ Lives students’ voices and perspectives are featured front and center in every chapter. Particular attention is given throughout to multiple literacies--especially how information and new communication technologies are changing learning from and with text. Nine of the 15 chapters are new; all other chapters are thoroughly updated. The volume is structured around four main themes: * Situating Adolescents’ Literacies–addressing how young people use favorite texts to perform their identities; how they counter school-based constructions of incompetence; and how they re/construct their literate identities in relation to certain kinds of gendered expectations, pedagogies, and cultural resources; * Positioning Youth as Readers and Writers–stressing the importance of classroom discourse, cultural capital, agency, and democratic citizenship in mediating adolescents’ literate identities; * Mediating Practices in Young People’s Literacies–looking at issues of language, social class, race, and culture in shaping how adolescents represent themselves and are represented by others; and * Changing Teachers, Teaching Changes–capturing the productive ambiguities associated with teaching urban adolescents to read and write in changing times, encouraging students to conduct action research on topics that are personally relevant, and using ‘enabling constraints’ as a concept to formulate policies on adolescent literacy instruction. Reconceptualizing the Literacies in Adolescents’ Lives, Second Edition is an essential volume for researchers, faculty, teacher educators, and graduate students in the field of adolescent literacy education.
