Question by kimcarter: How To Practice Safe Online Dating?
Feeling tempted to post an online dating profile but too scared?
Answer by carolenticing0182 Be Honest in the Information You Provide About Yourself: Age, sex, ethnicity, income, body habits, marital status (this is a big one), expectations, etc. Most of all, the picture you choose in your profile should be a recent one that truly represents you. Do not use that old high school or college graduation picture because you looked slim or better. Another big no-no is to place a picture that has another person in it with you whom you have cut out…I cannot stress on how bad an impression that creates!
State Exactly and With Radical Clarity What, Where, Who you are Looking For and What He or She Can Expect From You and Vice Versa: This includes what type of relationship you are looking for. If you are looking for a serious one, then please don’t post your profile on the intimate encounters section or site as that massively reduces your chances of being taken seriously. Are you interested in long-distance relationships? Are you willing to travel to see your date and if so, how frequent and how far? If not, minimize your contacts to people who are local to you and make that clear.
Be Realistic in Your Expectations: Don’t expect Mr. Charming to come into your message inbox right away and filter through people who contact you using all your senses, including the sixth sense! Ask a lot of questions and take notes if you have to. Don’t think that everyone who contacts you has the right to meet you in person and do not trust people after one or two chats. Communicate via the site’s messaging system first, as it is more secure. If and when you feel comfortable, switch to email and take it slow and easy. After that, switch to the phone and only after that should you meet in person, presuming no red flags have gone up during this time. Don’t be upset if you don’t get a lot of second dates and don’t push for them if you are the only one feeling the connection.

Although divorce is essentially a matter of personal choice, its emotional aspects are necessarily entwined with legal dynamics, making decisions about divorce a matter of both the heart and the law. Consequently, feelings become facts that must be accommodated in the divorce process in order to reach a viable lasting result. Divorce mediation, an alternative to traditional judicial intervention and third-party decision making, facilitates private negotiation and takes into account emotional as well as legal dimensions of marital dissolution. This process empowers divorcing couples to be actively involved in making the choices that will affect their lives for years to come. The divorce mediator acts as a neutral party who promotes decision making with the family and helps divorcing couples to develop their own parental, financial, and property arrangements.
Because divorce mediation views divorce as a multidimensional process that involves both legal and psychological matters, it has attracted professionals from both fields who wish to facilitate a less adversarial approach to the dissolution of a marriage. DIVORCE MEDIATION: THEORY AND PRACTICE fills the currently unmet need for a comprehensive treatment of this burgeoning field. Editors Folberg and Milne, both nationally recognized authorities, have compiled an interdisciplinary state-of-the-art work on divorce resolution. Leading practitioners have contributed chapters which define the theory of divorce mediation, and outline techniques and strategies, as well as ethical considerations and constraints, standards of practice, and policy issues. Current results and forthcoming research findings on such important and controversial matters such as mediation’s role in domestic violence disputes are also included.
The volume opens with a lucid discussion of theory and practice, the nature of divorce disputes, and methods for achieving settlements. It goes on to offer a detailed overview of the psychological and legal dimensions to be considered. Next, organizational settings in which divorce mediation occurs, namely courts-of-law, private practice, agencies, and organizations are discussed. The implications of divorce mediation for such complex areas of dispute as child custody and financial agreements are vividly conveyed. The process of engaging couples in constructive communication and reducing irrationality is fully explored in the chapters on power balancing, communication strategies, and techniques to break impasses. Legal and ethical issues discussed include liability of divorce mediators, confidentiality and privilege, and standards of practice. The book closes with comprehensive coverage of research results, a longitudinal comparison of mediated versus adversarial divorce, and an in-depth descriptive analysis of common divorce mediation behaviors.
This groundbreaking volume brings together a wide range of noted practitioners and researchers in this dynamic discipline to produce the singular interdisciplinary, comprehensive work on this subject to date. DIVORCE MEDIATION: THEORY AND PRACTICE will be an indispensable tool for mediators, therapists, social workers, lawyers, educators and other dispute resolution professionals. It will be of interest to anyone concerned with empowering couples to determine their own mutual and individual responsibilities, and rendering the process of marriage dissolution more cooperative and humane.
Question by BigRig: What is the definition of studio practice in art?
I’m supposed to write about the studio practice of contemporary artists but I don’t really know if I’m approaching this the right way. What exactly does studio practice mean?
Answer by Debonair I can’t say that I have heard this term used before but I think what the phrase studio practice might mean is the manner in which the artist uses the studio to do what it is that they do. The set up,equipment used ,procedures,work schedule/ethic. Areas designated for different types of work,drawing in one, another for painting,etc All of this would of course vary from one individual to the next.
I did a search using the words” studio practice’ and got this university course description that uses the words. Do remember that is a course description. It includes what an artist would do in a studio but is describing what the students will be doing in the different course levels.
