THE SUCCESSFUL INTERNSHIP: PERSONAL, PROFESSIONAL, AND CIVIC DEVELOPMENT, 4th Edition, offers you more than just a resource for how to find a position or how to interview. It addresses the concerns, emotions, needs, and unique personal challenges that are the essence of an internship or field experience, and focuses on the internship as a vehicle for your development as a civic professional. The authors describe in detail the path of change you'll find yourself embarking on and the challenges you'll face along the way. A four-stage model of the internship process–anticipation, exploration, competence, and culmination–places the material in a meaningful framework that lends structure to your understanding of the work you'll be doing.

In a world of rising tension and stress it is not uncommon to feel dominated and overwhelmed by the events of life. "Raising the Soul", a practical guide to gaining a firm anchor and taking control of one's situation, is based on seven contemplative exercises interpreted from the work of Rudolf Steiner. When carried out diligently, these simple exercises – which may take just a few minutes of each day – are powerful tools for personal growth and inner strengthening. They can help us, for example: to stay more balanced in emotionally charged situations; to see the positive side of any circumstance; to become more open-minded; and to develop an inner mood of gratitude. At the same time the exercises assist with the practical details of everyday life: remembering the important particulars of our day, putting intentions into action, and thinking more clearly. "Raising the Soul" presents a pathway to help us say 'yes' to more of what life offers – to be open to the abundance of life's experiences. The book is organized so that each chapter introduces a different soul capacity that can be mastered in turn. The headings include: Review of the Day; Clear Thinking; Intention in Action; Balance in Feeling; Positive World View; Open Mind; and Gratitude. The book also offers clear descriptions of the exercises, a 'Plan of Action', and advice on developing a meditative practice.
