Short Description:
This book explores how Airbnb has developed from its early days as a niche accommodation provider to the alternative traveller segment to a mainstream booking platform for short-term accommodation and other travel-related services. Every chapter discusses three distinct periods of time: the time before, during and after COVID-19. The pandemic has disrupted Airbnb’s growth and expansion trajectory, leading Airbnb to focus once again on the key to its success: local communities.

All About Anxiety: An Introductory Guide to Neuroscience, Assessment, and Intervention
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

Short Description:
This book explores the topic of anxiety disorders. Including information on neuroscience, assessment, and intervention.

Long Description:
Anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental health disorders experienced by people in the United States. However, given their complexity, they are also one of the most misunderstood. While these disorders can be quite debilitating, appropriate assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning are critical to the recovery process.

The chapters introduce the reader to a variety of topics. The chapters include introduction to anxiety and the nervous system, building blocks of anxiety, assessing anxiety, and cognitive and behavioral interventions. The chapters were written to build upon one another. Thus, skipping a chapter and jumping ahead can be problematic as the reader may have missed foundational material in the prior chapters.

I would like to acknowledge that as part of this open educational resource product, there were several mental health providers that peer-reviewed these chapters. I would like to extend a deep gratitude for their time, edits, and constructive feedback.

Government can be defined as the institutions and processes that make and implement a society’s legally authoritative decisions. The government unit can be a city, a school board, a county, a state, a multi-state regional compact, a national government, or even an international body. In the U.S., government includes the national government institutions—Congress, the presidency, the federal courts, and the federal bureaucracies; the 50 state governments—state legislatures, governors, courts, and bureaucracies; and the thousands of local governments—cities, counties, and other special government districts such as school boards and the transportation authorities that govern airports, seaports, and mass transit. These governments make legally authoritative decisions that include legislation, administrative regulations, executive orders, case law rulings, and other public policy actions that are authoritative because individuals and organizations are obligated to obey them or face some kind of legal sanction.

This text is a comprehensive introduction to the vital subject of American government and politics. Governments decide who gets what, when, how (See Harold D. Lasswell, Politics: Who Gets What, When, How, [New York: McGraw-Hill, 1936]); they make policies and pass laws that are binding on all a society’s members; they decide about taxation and spending, benefits and costs, even life and death.Governments possess power—the ability to gain compliance and to get people under their jurisdiction to obey them—and they may exercise their power by using the police and military to enforce their decisions. However, power need not involve the exercise of force or compulsion; people often obey because they think it is in their interest to do so, they have no reason to disobey, or they fear punishment. Above all, people obey their government because it has authority; its power is seen by people as rightfully held, as legitimate. People can grant their government legitimacy because they have been socialized to do so; because there are processes, such as elections, that enable them to choose and change their rulers; and because they believe that their governing institutions operate justly.Politics is the process by which leaders are selected and policy decisions are made and executed. It involves people and groups, both inside and outside of government, engaged in deliberation and debate, disagreement and conflict, cooperation and consensus, and power struggles.In covering American government and politics, this text introduces the intricacies of the Constitution, the complexities of federalism, the meanings of civil liberties, and the conflicts over civil rights;explains how people are socialized to politics, acquire and express opinions, and participate in political life; describes interest groups, political parties, and elections—the intermediaries that link people to government and politics; details the branches of government and how they operate; and shows how policies are made and affect people’s lives.
