Mental Health, Mental Illness and Migration

Mental Health, Mental Illness and Migration by Driss Moussaoui
English | PDF,EPUB | 2021 | 636 Pages | ISBN : 9811023646 | 10.4 MB

This book unravels the mental health challenges of the migrants and the socio economic and cultural conditions that bear on the mental well being. In addition, it covers the measures of intervention that can help the migrants maintain or restore their mental well being. Research included in the book is timely given that there is ever increasing mobility of people which on one hand has led to better livelihoods, but on the other has created conditions of stress for the migrants and their families. As migrants are often found to be hesitant of using the health care facilities in the new place which may be due to the lack of awareness, this book elaborates on the health care facilities, cost issues, stigma, and several other factors.

Technology to Support Children's Collaborative Interactions: Close Encounters of the Shared Kind

Technology to Support Children's Collaborative Interactions: Close Encounters of the Shared Kind by Nicola Yuill
English | PDF,EPUB | 2021 | 148 Pages | ISBN : 3030750469 | 7.8 MB

This book explores how technology can foster interaction between children and their peers, teachers and other adults. It covers in particular how technology can support children collaborate, so helping them to learn and engage positively with the world, in both work and play. It focuses on children, rather than young people, though the principles of supporting interaction mostly apply throughout all life stages. Chapters on classrooms and on autism explain principles behind using technology in ways that support, rather than obstruct, social interaction in diverse populations. Collaborative interaction involves both verbal and non-verbal behaviour and this book presents evidence from closely analysing children’s behaviour in natural settings. Examples from cutting-edge technology illustrate principles applying to more widely-available technology.
