Self, Community & Psychology is a reader for students at UNISA studying community psychology. It brings together some of the best recent local work written from critical, social constructionist, participatory and liberatory perspectives.

The text was selected from two volumes dealing with social psychology and critical psychology respectively (Critical Psychology edited by Derek Hook, Nhlanhla Mkhize, Peace Kiguwa and Anthony Collins and Social Psychology: Identities and Relationships edited by Kopano Ratele and Norman Duncan). Both titles were published by UCT Press.

Self, Community & Psychology provides a broad introduction to community psychology and power and social formations and posits a liberatory response utilising critical analysis, self-definition and collective action.Key themes that the text explores include:

  • the act of making knowledge about selves in communities
  • the discourses, ideologies and cultures that shape communities and how they are understood
  • change processes in the increasingly complex interactions between global and local communities
  • poverty (as reflected in the lives of street children)
  • HIV/Aids
  • violence

This text addresses ideologies of race, gender and sexuality that together create particular South African post-colonial realities which legitimise oppression and cultural dispossession.

Anna Hugo 2
R333 R269 Discovery Miles 2 690 Save R64 (19%) In stock

The intermediate phase is a critically important period in schooling, when most learners make the transition from learning in their home language to using English as the language of learning and teaching. Learners and teachers find it a daunting time. There are language and literacy challenges in learning English as a subject, in addition to the linguistic complexities of classrooms in urban areas. Recent research has indicated that many intermediate phase learners are also still not fluent readers. Teaching English: As A First Additional Language In The Intermediate And Senior Phase will support teachers in overcoming these classroom challenges.

The book starts by exploring who the Intermediate and Senior Phase learner is – physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively – and then focuses on the skills of reading and viewing, writing, and speaking and listening.

In addition, the text:

  • explains the supporting role the home language can play in learning an additional language
  • provides strategies for integrating language skills in a second-language classroom
  • includes examples of how language teaching can be extended across all curriculum subjects
  • explores ways in which assessment can be used to support students’ learning
  • focuses on the use of information and communication technologies in the language classroom

Teaching English: As A First Additional Language In The Intermediate And Senior Phase is suitable for preservice teachers completing a BEd or a PGCE. In-service teachers will also find it useful.

R540 R421 Discovery Miles 4 210 Save R119 (22%) In stock

In a society afflicted by serious crime, South African citizens look to the SA Police Service for protection. Under the Constitution, police officials are responsible for upholding the law. The purpose of this book is to give them the knowledge and understanding that will equip them to do so.

In order to investigate crime effectively and gather evidence that will enable the prosecuting authorities secure convictions after due process of law, police officials have to be familiar with the fundamental elements of criminal law, criminal procedure and the law of evidence. These principles are set out in Applied Law for Police Officials. There is a clear focus on the implications of these laws for police procedures. Applied Law for Police Officials highlights the importance of effective co-operation between an investigating officer and the victim of crime, other witnesses and the prosecutor, which will greatly improve the chances of a successful criminal prosecution.

To exercise their powers lawfully, police officials must also be aware of the social context in which their duties are performed and of the constitutional principles of human rights, which receive attention throughout this book. With its unique practical approach, addressing legal principles specifically relevant to police officials, Applied Law for Police Officials will help them to provide an effective service to the community.
