Fort Collins: A History

Arcadia Publishing
Free sample

While today's Fort Collins is a popular destination for foodies and weekend adventurers, it was once a lonely military outpost poised on the nation's frontier. Cattle rustlers and trigger-happy cowboys walked an uneasy line between saloon doors and the hangman's noose. By 1895, Fort Collins had lost some of its gritty edge, and it became a dry town full of churches, sheep ranches and sugar beet farms. The city was again transformed over the past century into a community that embraced a thriving beer culture and green living. Local historian Barbara Fleming traces the story of the Choice City from its early pioneer days through its modern renaissance.

Area 51

It is the most famous military installation in the world. And it doesn't exist. Located a mere seventy-five miles outside of Las Vegas in Nevada's desert, the base has never been acknowledged by the U.S. government-but Area 51 has captivated imaginations for decades.

Myths and hypotheses about Area 51 have long abounded, thanks to the intense secrecy enveloping it. Some claim it is home to aliens, underground tunnel systems, and nuclear facilities. Others believe that the lunar landing itself was filmed there. The prevalence of these rumors stems from the fact that no credible insider has ever divulged the truth about his time inside the base. Until now.

Annie Jacobsen had exclusive access to nineteen men who served the base proudly and secretly for decades and are now aged 75-92, and unprecedented access to fifty-five additional military and intelligence personnel, scientists, pilots, and engineers linked to the secret base, thirty-two of whom lived and worked there for extended periods. In Area 51, Jacobsen shows us what has really gone on in the Nevada desert, from testing nuclear weapons to building super-secret, supersonic jets to pursuing the War on Terror.

This is the first book based on interviews with eye witnesses to Area 51 history, which makes it the seminal work on the subject. Filled with formerly classified information that has never been accurately decoded for the public, Area 51 weaves the mysterious activities of the top-secret base into a gripping narrative, showing that facts are often more fantastic than fiction, especially when the distinction is almost impossible to make.
As practical and insightful as its predecessor, the second edition of this acclaimed text gives students of cognitive and cognitive-behavioral therapy a solid grounding in principles while modeling an integrative approach to the problems they will encounter most. The same quartet of knowledgeable clinicians who authored the original have updated and restructured their work to take readers through the best of contemporary cognitive practice, from intake interview and case conceptualization to the crucial final meetings. Their goal is to offer empirically valid interventions that truly address the complex problems of today’s clients, and this straightforward volume presents these strategies with maximum utility for trainee and clinician alike.

- Clinical vignettes and verbatim transcripts illustrating interventions in action.
- Guidelines for assessing clients throughout the course of therapy.
- Effective ways to strengthen the therapeutic relationship.
- Equal coverage on treatment of Axis I and personality disorders.
- New chapters on treatment of children, adolescents, couples, and groups.
- Techniques for getting past roadblocks, dealing with non-compliance, and avoiding relapses.

Uncovering new clinical possibilities, debunking common misconceptions, and encouraging readers to sharpen their skills, the authors show why, decades after its inception, cognitive therapy continues to get results.

The second edition of Clinical Applications of Cognitive Therapy is an invaluable source of knowledge for researchers and advanced students of behavior therapy, clinical and counseling psychology, psychiatry, and psychiatric social work, and for clinicians at all levels of practice.

When the first edition of Clinical Applications of Cognitive Therapy was published in 1990, it provided a valuable resource for practitioners, researchers, and advanced students of Cognitive Therapy. At that time, a large body of research supported the cognitive view of psychopathology and showed that Cognitive Therapy was an effective treatment approach. However, as practitioners went forth to apply Cognitive Therapy in real-life clinical practice, they faced significant challenges. In controlled outcome studies, standardized treatment protocols for treating one specific problem had been applied with carefully selected research subjects. In clinical practice, individuals seeking treatment typically had more than one problem at a time, had a variety of factors which complicated treatment, or had problems for which no standardized treatment protocol had yet been developed. Clinical Applications of Cognitive Therapy was a volume written by practitioners, for practitioners, which provided an integrated, step-wise approach to understand ing the principles and practice of Cognitive Therapy. Its clear, practical approach was rich in clinical vignettes that demonstrated how the principles and strategies of Cognitive Therapy are applied. In addition to discussing the treatment of depres sion, suicidality, and anxiety disorders, it discussed the complications that arise when applying Cognitive Therapy's apparent1y straightforward approach in the consulting room. In particular, it included an extensive discussion of the inter personal complexities encountered when applying Cognitive Therapy with clients who have personality disorders.
