Medical Child Abuse

RRP $311.99

Medical child abuse occurs when a child receives unnecessary and potentially harmful medical care at the instigation of a caretaker. Written and edited by leading experts on child abuse, "Medical Child Abuse: Beyond Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy" makes the case that the term Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy should be retired permanently, and replaced with a commonsense appreciation that children can be abused by their parents in the medical environment. Physicians who find themselves giving unnecessary and harmful medical care can see the abuse for what it is - another way parents can harm children. The new resource offers the first detailed, and comprehensive description of treatment for this form of child maltreatment.


An Introduction To Statistics

RRP $119.00

In An Introduction to Statistics: An Active Learning Approach, second edition, Kieth Carlson and Jennifer Winquist encourage an active approach to learning statistics. While the chapters in this book introduce basic and key concepts, this book is unique in the depth of its active pedagogical approach. Carefully placed reading questions throughout each chapter reinforce difficult concepts and guide student learning; 29 in-depth activities, each accompanied by learning objectives, carefully developed scenarios, problem sets, and quiz questions give students the opportunity to test or demonstrate their understanding of basic concepts while they read detailed explanations of more complex statistical concepts; and 15 sets of practice problems further solidify student learning.

When using most traditional text books, students only perform statistical procedures after they read multiple pages of text. This book adopts a workbook approach that forces students to be actively engaged while they read explanations. Most of the activities are self-correcting so if students misunderstand a concept their misunderstanding is corrected early in the learning process. After completing these activities, students are far more likely to understand the material than when they simply read the material.

Carlson and Winquist's approach targets students' attention toward important statistical issues. Further, this volume is based on contemporary research on memory and the "testing effect" which requires students to answer questions to facilitate their long term retention. The embedded questions throughout the chapters and activities are designed specifically to take advantage of this testing effect.
