Mike Hodges: The Pocket Essential Guide

Summersdale Publishers LTD - ROW

Who is Mike Hodges? One of the great maverick British film-makers. A director who is uncompromising and willing to fight his corner, he has made films over the last three decades that mark him out as a rare and unusual talent.

He is a difficult film-maker to define. His work includes crime drama (Get Carter, Croupier and Pulp), science-fiction (Flash Gordon and The Terminal Man) and even comedy (Morons from Outer Space), but he has also made watchable oddities such as A Prayer for the Dying (Mickey Rourke courting controversy as an IRA killer seeking redemption) and Black Rainbow (a surreal fantasy drama little seen, but much acclaimed).

He started his career in television in the 1960s, but hit the big screen with the violent crime drama Get Carter, a film that has now achieved cult status (recently voted the best British film ever in Hotdog magazine) and continues to be the benchmark any British crime film sets itself against. Though hardly prolific- just eight feature films in 30 years - Mike Hodges makes fascinating movies that just won't go away.

As well as an introductory essay, each of Hodges film and television work is reviewed and analysed. There is also an article looking at the impact and continuing influence of Get Carter and a section listing any other information about Hodges and his films.

Coaching psychology is a distinct branch of academic and applied psychology that focuses on enhancement of performance, development and wellbeing in the broader population. In Coaching Psychology in Schools, Mark Adams demonstrates how psychological principles and approaches can be applied in schools to enhance the performance of education practitioners, teams and settings, with corresponding benefits for the children under their care.

Coaching Psychology in Schools

aims to put psychology in the hands of the reader, imparting psychology-informed coaching strategies that can enhance effectiveness in supporting others to learn, change and develop. The book challenges traditional notions of how psychology can contribute to education and illustrates how better outcomes for children can be achieved by helping adults to unlock and utilise their resources. The book covers how coaching psychology can be applied to:

Develop classroom practice

Improve teacher performance

Support Continuing Professional Development

Enhance practitioner and team performance, confidence and wellbeing

Support practical problem-solving

Develop individual and organisational resilience

Real-life case examples are used throughout to illustrate practical coaching methods and techniques that are underpinned by established psychological approaches, including solution-focused coaching, cognitive-behavioural coaching, motivational interviewing and many more.

Coaching Psychology in Schools

will be essential reading for coaches, psychologists, and education practitioners who have an interest or investment in helping others to move forward, including school leaders, teacher coaches, CPD co-ordinators, advisors and consultants. It will also be of interest to those working in other professional contexts who are interested in finding out more about coaching psychology and its potential applications.
THE HEALING FIELD examines remarkable cases of healing and personal transformation made possible by a range of natural energy based healing techniques. The anomalous experiences arising in these contexts throw fresh light on the timeless issues of the nature of consciousness, reality and selfhood.
Through the unique lens of the energy healer we are able to discern a far more expansive, positive and empowering view of our place within the larger web of life. The experiences recorded in The Healing Field are based upon live cases derived from over 15 years of professional experience. The insight and understanding arising from peoples lived experience goes far to relieving the anxiety, fear and doubt that otherwise overshadows the vast majority of people.
Back Cover Text:
The Healing Field presents a collection of real-life cases drawn from intensive energy healing work. For over 15 years, Peter and his wife Gulcan have been practicing and teaching energy psychology methods such as Emotional Freedom Techniques, Tapas Acupressure Technique, Reiki and breathwork to thousands of people. Their research reinforces the idea of a healing and morally self-correcting field of consciousness.
This concept is compatible with Rupert Sheldrakes Morphic Field. The Healing Field illustrates how transpersonal fields of consciousness connect all life forms and provides powerful leverage to heal the vast range of issues not addressed by conventional medicine and therapy.
These issues often relate to:
Contracts made in the womb
Merged identities
Problems inherited from ancestors
Past life traumas
Near death experiences
Interactions with deceased persons
Spirit and entity attachment
Spiritual experiences
Encounters with higher order beings
Each section carefully references scientific research, making this book a unique bridge between science and energy healing. Using simple, natural techniques we can heal our emotional and physical issues. In doing so, we contribute towards healing the fields of consciousness that connect us all. The Healing Field provides a reliable roadmap to help you chart a new course towards realizing your full potential in life.
