Pragmatics of human communication : a study of interactional patterns, pathologies, and paradoxes by Paul Watzlawick( Book )
54 editions published between 1946 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,561 libraries worldwide
Called one of the best books ever about human communication, and a perennial bestseller, Pragmatics of Human Communication has formed the foundation of much contemporary research into interpersonal communication, in addition to laying the groundwork for context-based approaches to psychotherapy. The authors present the simple but radical idea that problems in life often arise from issues of communication, rather than from deep psychological disorders, reinforcing their conceptual explorations with case studies and well-known literary examples. Written with humor and for a variety of readers, this book identifies simple properties and axioms of human communication and demonstrates how all communications are actually a function of their contexts

Pragmatics of human communication : a study of interactional patterns, pathologies, and paradoxes by Paul Watzlawick( Sound Recording )
3 editions published between 1970 and 2005 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This book deals with the age-old questions of persistence and change in human affairs. More particularly, it is concerned with how problems arise and are perpetuated in some instances, and resolved in others. It examines how, paradoxically, common sense and logical approaches often fail and in doing so compound an existing problem, while seemingly 'illogical' and 'unreasonable' actions succeed in producing the desired change.-Dust jacket
The role of discourse in a theory of politicized collective identity : the 1995 Québec referendum debate by Shawn Casey O'Connor( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Politicized collective identity (PCI) is a recent social psychological model developed by Simon and Klandermans (2001), which theorizes how the identity of social groups engaged in power struggles becomes politically or socially active, that is, how group identity becomes politicized. Virtually absent from current PCI theory is any mention of the role of language in the politicization process. The purpose of the present study was to incorporate recent theorizing in language into a theory of PCI. The analysis focussed specifically on the use of linguistic structures and strategies in both reflecting and shaping the final stage of a fully politicized collective identity, that is, the efforts of groups to involve the wider society in their struggle. Methods and theory taken from critical discourse analysis were applied to campaign material arising out of the intensely contentious political struggle over Quebec independence during the 1995 referendum campaign. The primary material was the official referendum campaign booklet, to which both sovereignists (the Yes side) and federalists (the No side) had contributed an extensive outline of their respective positions. Given the advanced stage of politicization of these groups, this material served the third and final stage of PCI?the attempt of each side to involve society by triangulation, in which groups seek to enlist the support of third parties in their struggle. The results revealed how this stage was constituted in and through discourse, that is, in a wide variety of linguistic structures and strategies such as lexical choice, metaphors, semantic macrostructures, and intertexuality. It was also noteworthy that the first two stages that Simon and Klandermans had proposed (grievances and adversarial attributions) were reintroduced in the third stage as topics of discourse and were recruited into the involvement strategies of the Yes and No sides. These findings demonstrate that the theoretical integration of language and PCI contributes to a greater understanding of how groups enlist third parties and thus builds upon Simon and Klandermans's theory of politicized collective identity

Development of a Method of Analysis for Identifying an Individual Patient's Perspective in Video-recorded Oncology Consultations by Sara Healing( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Patient-centred care has become an important model for health-care delivery, especially in cancer care. The implementation of this model includes patient-centred communication between the clinician and his or her patient. However, most research on patient-centred communication focuses on the clinicians' initiative: what clinicians should do and what information they should seek to elicit from patients. It is equally important to recognize what each individual patient can contribute about his or her unique perspective on the disease, its treatment, and the effects on what is important to this patient. This thesis reports the development of a system for analyzing over 1500 utterances made by patients in eight video-recorded oncology consultations at the British Columbia Cancer Agency, Vancouver Island Centre. The analysis distinguishes between biomedical information that the patient can provide and patient-centred information, which contributes the individual patient's unique perspective on any aspect of his or her illness or treatment. The resulting analysis system includes detailed operational definitions with examples, a decision tree, and .eaf files in ELAN software for viewing and for recording decisions. Two psychometric tests demonstrated that the system is replicable: high inter-analyst reliability (90% agreement between independent analysts) on a random sample of the data set and cross-validation to the remainder of the data set. A supplemental idiographic analysis of each consultation illustrates the important role that patient-centred information played in these consultations. This system could be an important tool for teaching clinicians to recognize the individual information that patients can provide and its relevance to their care
Patient-Centred Assessment of Symptoms and Activities (P-CASA) by Christine Tomori( file )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The Patient-Centred Assessment of Symptoms and Activities (P-CASA) is a new idiographic, open-ended assessment that examines each individual patient's symptoms within the context of his or her daily life. P-CASA asks patients for their most important activities, what interferes with these activities, and any coping strategies. This thesis presents the rationale and design of P-CASA and its first validation study. Sixty patients at the Pain and Symptom Management/Palliative Care Clinic of the BC Cancer Agency (Vancouver Island Centre) completed P-CASA and the Edmonton Symptom Assessment System (ESAS), which is the current nomothetic assessment at the Clinic. The results demonstrated that P-CASA was not redundant with ESAS because it assessed (a) information about patients' activities and coping strategies, which the ESAS does not; (b) all relevant cancer-related symptoms (not just pain or a fixed list); (c) co-occurring symptoms; (d) more specific details and different priorities about symptoms than in their ESAS
