QUALITATIVE DIAGNOSIS OF HUMAN MOVEMENT (W/BNDIN ACCESS)

$100.50
$75.50
$75.50 - $100.50
New/Used: Used

For kinesiology professionals, qualitative movement diagnosis (QMD) is a critical skill in helping individuals improve performance or reduce the risk of injury. Qualitative Diagnosis of Human Movement: Improving Performance in Sport and Exercise, Third EditionWith Web Resource, focuses on the processes behind movement observation, assessment, and diagnosis, emphasizing how to recognize and correct errors in human movement. This unique text teaches anyone working in human movement-related professions how to integrate and apply knowledge from the fields of kinesiology, allied health, and engineering to help clients, patients, or athletes improve their movement performance or move with a lower risk of injury.

Well received by scholars worldwide, the previous editions, formerly titled Qualitative Analysis of Human Movement, broke new ground as the first texts devoted to QMD. The third edition continues building on that foundation with a new title, Qualitative Diagnosis of Human Movement, to better reflect the diagnostic and corrective aspects of this critical skill. Following are other improvements to this edition:

- A web resource replaces the CD-ROM from the previous edition and contains more than 70 all-new video clips and follow-up questions to provide real-life examples to practice movement diagnosis.

- Expanded coverage of the use of video and computer technology shows readers how to use modern tools to aid in observation and evaluation of movement.

- An additional 80 new sources of research relevant to QMD illustrate the extent to which this area of study has taken hold in the kinesiology field.

As in previous editions, Qualitative Diagnosis of Human Movement, Third Edition, organizes research-based knowledge into a simple theoretical structure supplemented with numerous examples of application. It introduces a four-task interdisciplinary model of QMD--preparation, observation, evaluation and diagnosis, and intervention--and summarizes the development of this approach and the perceptual factors relevant to movement diagnosis. Readers are then led through a series of tutorials that provide real-world examples. These practice scenarios will help readers better understand the process from beginning to end as they review photos in the book in QMD Practice sections (with accompanying video in the web resource or video-enhanced e-book), and then perform their own movement diagnosis by viewing video from the web resource or video-enhanced e-book in QMD Explorations.

In addition, a chapter titled Theory-Into-Practice Situations provides case studies spanning a variety of movement, fitness, and sport settings. These case studies are featured in both the book and the web resource as printable forms that offer readers support in developing their own plan to assist the subject in the case study. Several other features such as QMD Technologies and QMD Demonstration sideboxes add more tools to show students how QMD can help clients in real-world sessions. For instructors, an image bank containing the book's prominent figures, tables, and photos is available for use in delivering lectures.

Qualitative Diagnosis of Human Movement, Third Edition, provides students, teachers, and researchers with a practical diagnostic framework, tutorials to guide them through the QMD process, advice on capturingg relevant information from motor performances, and descriptions of intervention strategies. The updated edition and the unique web resource are invaluable tools capable of sharpening the skills of even experienced diagnosticians. This text will assist readers in integrating their knowledge of all kinesiology subdisciplines in order to develop or improve their skills in QMD and better serve their clients, patients, and athletes.

    RECOVERING HISTORICAL CHRISTOLOGY FOR TODAY'S CHURCH

    $29.75
    New/Used: New
    This book explains the basic tenets of Christology that a college student would encounter in a basic Christology class. The book is written in three different sections. The first section focuses upon primary Christological passages, which include a limited survey of Christology in the New Testament. The second section reviews the Christological Councils, limited to the first four ecumenical councils (i.e., Nicea, Constantinople, Ephesus, and Chalcedon). The third section deals with the application of Christology, correlating the biblical witness with the councils, preaching Christology to a contemporary church, and summarizing the Christological content for the contemporary church. The book is a textbook for an introductory Christology class. As such, it will meet the needs of professors who are trying to find an introductory work that surveys the many aspects of teaching Christology. It will also be a valuable tool for pastors as an easy-to-read reference for sermon building and Sunday school lessons, and youth directors as an accessible tool to teach basic foundational Christological truths to their youth group. ""Eight master guides chart a path through the complex and sometimes confusing terrain of early Christological developments. As they navigate from Colossians to Chalcedon, they describe ditches to avoid and significant forks in the road. Throughout the journey, they set their sights upon the final destination of contemporary application. In the end, they lead the reader safely home to a robust Christology for the twenty-first century."" --Paul Hartog, Faith Baptist Theological Seminary ""Christology is the heart and soul of the church. But, as Jones and the other contributors show, the church throughout history has wrestled to articulate carefully the significance of Jesus for his day and ours. Here is an introduction that takes seriously the Scripture, history, and tradition. It demonstrates that the question, 'Who do you say that I am?' remains as relevant today as it was in the first century AD."" --David B. Capes, Wheaton College Marvin Jones is the assistant professor of theology and church history at Louisiana College. He is the author of The Beginning of Baptist Ecclesiology (2017) and Basil of Caesarea: His Life and Impact (2014).

    RESEAU: COMMUNICATION, INTEGRATION, INTERSECTIONS (LL)

    $53.33
    New/Used: New
    After the highly successful launch of this popular, college-level intermediate French program, the Second Edition of Réseau: Communication, Intégration, Intersections expands upon the features that have made it so popular in two- and four-year colleges and universities around the world. Reseau conceives of the teaching of French as a holistic endeavor, not only in terms of language skills--speaking, listening, reading, and writing--but also in terms of cultural knowledge in the broadest sense. Based on the belief that knowledge of a second language and culture necessarily brings about a greater understanding not only of the world in an increasingly global context, but also of the individual self, the content and activities in Reseau offer students the opportunity to reflect on the differences between their own and French and Francophone cultures and experiment with the new identities that so many researchers suggest language learning can encourage.
