  2. Online Child Sexual Abuse

    CEOP Warns of links between Downloading and Child Sex Attacks

    The BBC News website reports today that The Child Exploitation and Online Protection (Ceop) center wants police to prioritize those caught downloading child abuse images, who have access to children. According to the report, the images being downloaded are becoming more extreme. This report follows on the heels of a report to MPs that highlighted how child sex abuse was taking place all over the UK. For her recent book, Online Child Sexual Abuse: Grooming, Policing and Protection in a Multi-Media World, Elena Martellozzo conducted extensive research with the police and a specialist paedophile unit. The book adds significantly to our understanding of this problem, and examines how it is policed currently, and how it might be policed in the future.

  6. Climate Change and Social Ecology

    Featured Book: Climate Change and Social Ecology

    Climate Change and Social Ecology takes a new approach to the climate crisis, portraying global warming as a challenge of rapid social evolution. This book argues that, in order to address this impending catastrophe and bring about more sustainable development, we must focus on improving social ecology – our values, mind-sets, and social organization. Steps to do this include institutional reforms to improve democracy, educational strategies to encourage public understanding of complex issues, and measures to prevent corporations and the wealthy from shaping societies in other directions instead.

  10. The Psychology of Assessment Centers

    Research on the reliability and validity of assessment centers (ACs) has been ongoing for at least 50 years and continues to this day. The assessment center method is a technique or process that is used to assess individual performance and potential. One of the most heavily researched topics over the last 30 years has been the internal structure of AC ratings that assessors make on rating dimensions after the completion of each exercise. This volume, with contributions from experts from around the world, looks at Dimension-Based Assessment Centers, Task-Based Assessment Centers, and Mixed-Model Assessment Centers. All three perspectives are presented in different sections, and a summary of these diverse perspectives is given at the end of the book.
