A proper quality of a track and other infrastructure objects represents a basic requirement for train safety and punctuality. Most of the physical systems and their components deteriorate over time. This affects performance and may lead to failures. Albert Einstein said, "You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else." Only if we understand how the whole system works, taking into account its imperfections and how they influence its quality and performance will we be able to learn the rules of the game and "play better." The book provides the readers with the necessary functional knowledge of track behaviour and comprehensively covers the function of the various track components, their interaction as elements of the track system, as well as the interaction of the track with railway vehicles. By presenting important tools for a deep understanding of track-behaviour this book aims to be a reference guide for infrastructure managers and to help them to find ways improving track quality for optimum long-term behaviour.
Productive therapeutic change is facilitated when the therapist and client have a good therapeutic relationship, share views on salient therapeutic matters, agree on goals to enhance client well-being, and understand what they each have to do to achieve the goals of therapy. In this book Windy Dryden and Michael Neenan address the difficulties that both client and therapist bring to rational emotive behaviour therapy (REBT) when either party is resistant to change.
Divided into two parts, Client Resistance and Therapist Resistance, Working with Resistance in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy tackles the challenges experienced by both client and clinician when using REBT. Addressing issues of resistance enables both the client and practitioner to move beyond problems in the consulting room and build a more productive relationship, resulting in more effective sessions and assisting in the resolution of underlying problems for which the client has sought help.
Working with Resistance in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy is essential reading for any practitioner hoping to use REBT more effectively in their day-to-day practice.
