Social Work Practice In The Real World: An Argument For Evidence Tested Practice, Tomi Gomory May 2000

Social Work Practice In The Real World: An Argument For Evidence Tested Practice, Tomi Gomory

Tomi Gomory

This chapter explores the relevance of practice guidelines for the advancement of clinical social work by attempting to explicate the current epistemology of empirical social work practice, Justificationism, and contrasting it with an alternate epistemology, Fallibilism (Karl Popper’s Critical Rationalism). The chapter asserts the superiority of fallibilism for the advancement of knowledge and recommends its implementation. It is further argued that whether or not clinical practice guidelines are essential to practice depends on whether guidelines can be more explanatory (helpful) than some other alternative such as Falibilitic Critical Thinking (Fa.C.T.) when critically assessed against it. Examples and ...

Moviemod: An Implementable Decision-Support System For Prerelease Market Evaluation Of Motion Pictures, Jehoshua Eliashberg, Jedid-Jah Jonker, Mohanbir S. Sawhney Jan 2000

Moviemod: An Implementable Decision-Support System For Prerelease Market Evaluation Of Motion Pictures, Jehoshua Eliashberg, Jedid-Jah Jonker, Mohanbir S. Sawhney

Operations, Information and Decisions Papers

In spite of the high financial stakes involved in marketing new motion pictures, marketing science models have not been applied to the prerelease market evaluation of motion pictures. The motion picture industry poses some unique challenges. For example, the consumer adoption process for movies is very sensitive to word-of-mouth interactions, which are difficult to measure and predict before the movie has been released. In this article, we undertake the challenge to develop and implement MOVIEMOD—a prerelease market evaluation model for the motion picture industry. MOVIEMOD is designed to generate box-office forecasts and to support marketing decisions for a new ...

Francis Lieber: Anglican And Gallican Liberty Reading And Study Guide, Steven Alan Samson Jan 2000

Francis Lieber: Anglican And Gallican Liberty Reading And Study Guide, Steven Alan Samson

Faculty Publications and Presentations

Francis Lieber, who later held the first formal political science chair in America (Columbia, 1858), contrasted the English and French contributions to civil liberty in an article he published in 1849, the year following the European revolutions of 1848. Four years later, Lieber extended his analysis and added a major section on American liberty in Of Civil Liberty and Self-Government (1853). More than a century afterwards, Friedrich A. Hayek, who won the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1973, drew on Lieber's comparison of Anglican and Gallican Liberty in his treatise on political philosophy, The Constitution of Liberty (1960).

Mission Nuestra Senora del Rosario founded in 1754, is located four miles west of modem-day Goliad, Texas. Established for the Karankawa Indians, it was finally abandoned in 1808.

Archeological Test Excavations At 41wm543 On Fm 734, The Parmer Lane Extension, Williamson County, Texas, Barbara J. Hickman

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

A previously recorded site, 41WM543, was re-evaluated by archeologists from the Texas Department of Transportation in connection with the FM 734 Parmer Lane extension northwest of Austin, Texas. The portion of the site within the proposed right-of-way was tested after a burned rock concentration was exposed. Chronology of the open campsite is based on projectile point typology as no datable features were found. The diagnostic projectile points represented a time span of Early Archaic through Late Archaic Periods. The majority of the points were found in only two levels, however. Given the lack of buried features, no further work is ...

Consumed By Faith: The Development Of Christian Fundamentalism And Its Applications In Contemporary Society, Laura M. Gagne Jan 2000

Consumed By Faith: The Development Of Christian Fundamentalism And Its Applications In Contemporary Society, Laura M. Gagne

Honors Theses

My research aims to understand how and why fundamentalists justify violence against people who do not fit their profile of "righteous" or "saved" persons, such as abortion doctors and clinic workers, gays and lesbians, and Jews. The first section of this paper travels through the history of fundamentalism since its origins in the British and American apocalipticism, or belief in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. However, my history of Protestant Fundamentalism in the United States will focus on the ways in which Fundamentalism developed in response to many changes in American social structure. I interpret Fundamentalism as an anti-modern ...

Relationships And Universal Energy Laws, Carroy U. Ferguson Dec 1999

Relationships And Universal Energy Laws, Carroy U. Ferguson

Carroy U "Cuf" Ferguson, Ph.D.

Relationships are our most intense forms of "mirrors" in the world. They show us in direct and indirect ways how we are using our personal energy systems in what I call our three life spaces. They show us how we consciously and unconsciously employ what some authors have called Universal Energy Laws (see attached descriptions of these laws) to co-create the quality of our relationships. Whether or not we "attract" and/or deal with relationships in conscious or subconscious ways, what I call the "mirror effect" is reflected in our three life spaces—personal life space, societal life space, and ...
