The ultimate survivors that have flourished in the most difficult of circumstances, rats have a long history of being the smartest rodent in the room! Rats are growing more and more popular as pets for adults and children alike. Having raised and trained rats for over forty years, Miriam Fields-Babineau, in her book Rat Training, teaches rat owners to harness that intelligence through a reward and clicker system of training. An avid proponent of reward-based positive-training techniques, the author explains how to create a successful learning environment for your rat as you teach him how to come on command, jump through a hoop, walk on a leash, stand on his hind legs, and much more. Illustrated with color photographs by Evan Cohen and Virginia Broitman, Rat Training includes tips on what to look for when buying a rat, how to care for your new pet, and how to acclimate your rat to other household pets. In the chapter called Rat Manner,” the author describes how rats think and their social organizations and behavior. Fields-Babineau has trained rats for various purposes, including working in movies, and her chapter called The Great Rat Race” describes the demands of rat shows and acting careers for rats. The chapter called Scurry and Hurry” is devoted to agility training and trick training (such as shoulder riding). Resources and glossary included.
There are a number of reasons a woman may choose online submission. It's a good way to ease into the community by making friends and observing other people at a safe distance. Creating an online persona allows women to keep their real names and identifiers private. This not only helps maintain physical safety but also gives her the freedom to talk about sexual fantasies and naughty ideas without fearing judgment from other people or consequences on the job.
Online submission also allows for a sexual experience rooted in the world of fantasy. A woman can take on any role or persona she wants, and perform acts she would not be willing or able to do in real life. She can express emotion, devotion and talk as dirty as she likes without feeling self-conscious or uncomfortable. While the scenarios sometimes described in online submission can be pure fantasy (seemingly endless sexual romps with multiple orgasms and no pain or soreness), the feelings of lust, love, loyalty, friendship, and arousal are all very real and can be a part of a vibrant sexual life.
This Submissive Training guide will take you into the world of online submission, along with safety protocols and techniques for making the digital fantasy a physical reality. You will also learn how to make the transition from online submission to a real life meeting.
Psychotherapy continues to progress at a remarkable rate as researchers become more creative in the development and application of a wide variety of empirically tested techniques. Older techniques have been refined and newer ones have emerged. Both old and new techniques are being quantified, assessed, and compared in group design research, and, for the first time since modern therapy's beginnings in the writings of Sigmund Freud, remarkable strides have been made in asking and answering vital questions about the effectiveness of various treatment strategies. One such strategy, Progressive Relaxation Training, grew out of a set of methods originating in the 1930s in the writings of Edmund Jacobson. The primary purpose of this guide is to set forth in detail the therapist behaviors and skills necessary for the effective application of progressive relaxation training. The guide was designed to provide therapists in many disciplines--including psychology, psychiatry, social work, pastoral counseling, nursing, and rehabilitation services, for example--with the tools they need to train their clients in relaxation. The guide was also designed to be used in research on stress and stress management, psychotherapy outcome, and related topics. This purpose is particularly important because there are few manuals available which describe in detail the actual procedures used in relaxation training.
