    Paperback. Condition: Good. 'Asperger's Syndrome in Young Children is easy to read, with lots of practical ideas and advice, presented in a sympathetic manner. It would be most useful for teachers or professionals who are new to the field or parents who believe their child may be on the Asperger's syndrome spectrum. It is a valuable source of information on strategies for helping young children with Asperger's syndrome to realise their full potential.' - ChildrenNow This landmark book focuses on how AS presents in pre-school children. An essential guide for parents coming to terms with their child's AS diagnosis and for the professionals who work with this age group, it is unique in answering pressing questions specific to younger children. How can parents help their AS child to develop speech and language? What help is available at school and home? When, if at all, should a child be informed about AS? Including a useful summary of early childhood development stages, Leventhal-Belfer and Coe provide a diagnostic model based on assessment of the child in contrast to 'neurotypical' children, considering relationships at home, in school or in care. Their book shows how to develop tailored early intervention strategies and to assist parents, teachers and mental health professionals in making informed decisions to nurture the development of AS children. The book has been read but remains in clean condition. All pages are intact and the cover is intact. Some minor wear to the spine.

    Paperback. Condition: Very Good. During a routine parent-teacher conference in November 1991, Echo Fling was told by her son's teacher that his behaviour in class was `not normal'. After two years at the pre-school, five-year-old Jimmy had failed to make any friends, had recently started to act aggressively towards his classmates, and was beginning to react violently to any changes in his routine. Echo was not taken completely by surprise: she had suspected for some time that her son was different from other children. Over the next five years, she and her husband accompanied Jimmy to doctors, medical specialists, learning consultants and psychologists. Finally, at the age of ten, Jimmy was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. This is the book that Echo Fling needed when she first set out to have Jimmy diagnosed, and it will enable parents and teachers to understand and help other children with Asperger Syndrome. The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged.

The third part details practical issues for interventions with children and their carers, and domestic violence perpetrators - the authors highlight the success of multi-agency approaches. Produced by a consortium consisting of the NSPCC, Barnardo's and the University of Bristol, and commissioned by the Department of Health, this reader will enable professionals working with children to develop informed, sophisticated and collaborative child care and protection responses for children who are experiencing domestic violence.

    Paperback. Condition: Very Good. At eighteen months old, Jodi Shaw suddenly changed from being a happy, lively, loving baby into the toddler from hell - withdrawn, refusing to talk, play or be touched, unable to concentrate or be still. Written by his mother but told from Jodi's perspective, this is a fascinating, funny, and insightful account of growing up with autism. The difficulties faced by the now 13-year-old Jodi and his family (obtaining a diagnosis, seeking support and, above all, learning to live with autism twenty-four hours a day) are not underplayed, but are recounted with empathy and humour. Jean Shaw, the mother of two children, is a housewife and full time carer. She hopes that the story of her autistic son will reassure and help many other ordinary families and also educate the general public about the problems associated with autism. The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged.

    Paperback. Condition: Very Good. The Pampered Child Syndrome is a welcome source of advice for parents or professionals working with children who are given all the love and care they need, yet who remain unhappy, anxious or angry. This book argues that we live in a society where real progress has been made in the development of child-centered parenting, education and care, but that this cultural shift has produced a generation of children who are entitled to the same rights as adults but not ready to accept grown-up responsibilities - children who are loved too much. Dr. Maggie Mamen describes common characteristics of the pampered child, and offers practical advice on how to strike an effective balance between caring for and nurturing children while at the same time maintaining authority and respect. The Pampered Child Syndrome also tackles the difficult issue of child mental health. Drawing on her professional expertise as a clinical psychologist, Dr. Maggie Mamen outlines how the symptoms of the pampered child can be similar to those used to diagnose many common emotional, behavioral, and psychiatric disorders. She flags up the danger of misdiagnosis and asserts the critical importance of maintaining a distinction, offering clear guidance on identifying genuine disorders. This book will offer valuable support and encouragement to parents, teachers, and health and social care professionals who want to raise children who are confident, happy, healthy, and socially aware. The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged.

    Paperback. Condition: Very Good. As awareness of Asperger Syndrome (AS) grows, it becomes increasingly important that all professionals have a familiarity with and understanding of the condition. However, for teachers, who have minimal spare time, it is difficult to access the details they need for working with AS children without wading through extensive books aimed at parents and professionals. Asperger Syndrome - What Teachers Need to Know bridges this gap and is the ideal starting point for teachers wishing to learn about Asperger Syndrome and how best to work with and get the most from a child with an ASD. Providing a summary of currently available information on AS and covering all the key issues that will concern teachers (e.g. social skills, homework, playground behaviour, assisting with study), Matt Winter, a teacher himself, imparts tips and practical ideas that he has found successful and invaluable for anyone working in a school environment.

    Paperback. Condition: Very Good. This book is based on detailed weekly observations of infants in their home environment from shortly after birth until two years. Each infant's interactions, relationships, physical, emotional and cognitive development are systematically studied. The focus of the study is on vulnerable infants, and problems in their development encountered in the course of observations are carefully assessed in terms of risk and resilience. The aims of the book are to explore, first, how far these observations can contribute to the development of a new methodology for studying infancy; second, how this approach leads to the emergence of new theoretical concepts and, third, how this study can influence professionals in the field. The book demonstrates that these observations can combine theoretical perspectives from psychoanalysis and child development psychology and can extend both kinds of theory. Comparisons between the infants leads to the development of a theoretical model, and this is demonstrated throughout the five case studies. The findings from the study concentrate on continuity and change in infant development and how the model facilitated conceptualisations and comparisons of infant development. The book ends with considered conclusions about risk in infancy and the scope for further research. The book will be essential for all engaged in the study of infancy, and for professionals working with infants, young children and their families. The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged.

    Paperback. Condition: Very Good. How do you respond simultaneously to the needs of adults experiencing domestic violence and the specific needs of their children? Domestic Violence and Child Protection explores the challenges of working effectively in this complex field and offers positive models for practice. Leading practitioners and researchers outline the essential safety considerations for children, adult victims and child protection workers, and stress the importance of children's experiences, using children's own words to describe their diverse needs. The contributors offer examples of good practice in prevention, intervention and recovery, drawn from international settings. They highlight new directions for policy and practice, and consider whether these might be achieved through increased communication and coordination between agencies, or by developing multiprofessional agencies that are able to offer integrated responses. Individual chapters address child abduction, legal issues concerning child contact arrangements, and dealing with abuse in the context of divorce. Including perspectives from social services, health services and the voluntary sector, this book is a valuable source of information and ideas on how to work safely and sensitively with children living with domestic violence and will be a key reference for social workers, health professionals and policy makers.

For professionals in health, social care and children's services, an ability to negotiate successfully is vital.

Arguing that in the health and social services a different, less aggressive approach is required to that advocated by negotiators in the commercial sectors, Keith Fletcher explains how to prepare for and deal with negotiation situations more confidently so that settlements can be reached which satisfy all parties.

    Paperback. Condition: Very Good. Drawing on one-to-one guided conversations with disabled children and follow-up interviews with their parents and siblings, this volume takes an in-depth look at the effects of disability on disabled children. Approaching this neglected subject through the disabled child's perspective, it considers: * disabled children's understanding of disability * the ways in which children negotiate the experience of disability in their everyday lives * children's perceptions of their relationships with professionals and their knowledge and views of service provision * children's aspirations for the future and their views on the type of support which might help achieve them * siblings' perceptions of the effects on them of having a disabled brother or sister. Informed by the social model of disability, Clare Connors and Kirsten Stalker identify and draw out the implications of their findings for social work and health services. Illustrating effective ways of communicating directly with disabled children, this will prove an invaluable resource for academics, policy makers and practitioners working with disabled children in health and social care settings.

Spending a week doing nothing but exploring the possibilities of Lego, thereby risking yet another job; impulsively sinking all his savings into wildly impractical self-employment ventures; sleepless nights, gripped by the need to write - these are just some manifestations of the often damaging periods of manic, uninhibited energy Brian Adams has experienced since his mid-twenties. But as a sufferer of bipolar disorder (also known as manic depression), he has been hospitalized several times with debilitating depression and undergone electric shock treatment, numerous drug therapies and even gone so far as to attempt to take his own life. This engaging, humorous, sometimes dark and sometimes startling account gives rich insight into how it feels to live with bipolar disorder.

    Paperback. Condition: Very Good. Macmillan Nurses and church bereavement visitors, some hospice trained, will use this book: so, too, will dippers in and purchasers of bedside books, both before and after bereavement.' -Plus - Christian Council on Ageing 'I would recommend this book to professionals and non-professionals alike. It is thought provoking and insightful, yet because of the topics explored, tragic in places. It is a gentle reminder of the humanitarian aspects of caring for, and staying with, the dying in this increasingly medicalized world'. - Palliative Medicine 'The poets, Hilary Elfick and David Head, both have connections with the hospice movement, and their poems tell us much about hospice philosophy and practice in care for the dying. I found the poems in which the dying speak for themselves the most moving: I want a stay of execution The longer the better. I can wait. Let the guilty die. Not me. Not who I am. Poems about individual patients are interspersed with poems exploring connecting themes in the poets' lives. Patients, families and carers are all represented. This inclusiveness gives the book real power. Cythia Fuller's careful arrangement and selection of the poems moves the reader from the shock and denial of first diagnosis through acceptance (although not in all cases) of the inevitablilty of death. The experience of loss and painful sharpness of memory is captured in lines like: What is grieving, but attending to the fact that you have gone? Dr Andrew Hoy in his introduction suggests the book should be essential reading for professional carer, as well as for patients and families. After reading (and re-reading) Hilary Elfick's Breaking the Thread I can see why.' - Palliative Care Review 'The Poetry in Attending to the Fact was written by a hospice chaplain and a hospice trustee. They range over the human events and activities around death and dying, including the intimate and the undignified. Horror and pain aren't shirked, but yet bring dignity and compassion.' - Progress in Palliative Care 'It should be of interest to health and social care workers who operate in hospice or palliative care services, or indeed to any staff who want to gain some insight into the experience of supporting someone with a terminal condition. a useful reminder of the need for staff to recognize and reflect upon the deep emotions which can arise in this area of work.' - Care and Health Magazine 'The poems show the human side of care and are essential reading for those who wish to be critically reflective about the nature of care and their own insight within the caring process.' - Contact 'The poems range from sad to the inspirational, describing the humiliating indignities that accompany decline and death as well as the experience of caring for, parting from and staying with the dying. The poets have made an honest response to the people they have met and the experiences they have found themselves in. It will certainly add to limited resources available in this area.' - Methodist Recorder 'Unflinchingly honest and intimate, Elfick and Head find the words to express the inexpressible: not only the humiliating indignities that accompany human decline and death and the ambivalent feelings evoked by intimacy, but the experience of caring for, parting from, and staying with the dying.' - Sandra Bertman, Research Professor of Palliative Care, Boston University 'These poems show the reader the human side of care. They must be essential reading for professional carers as well as for patients and families.' - Andrew Hoy, Chairman of the Association for Palliative Medicine of Great Britain and Ireland This inspirational collection of poetry explores one of the most difficult and painful subjects to make sense of in writing - what it is like to care for the dying and the dead. Drawing on the authors' own work in hospices, these poems take the reader on a journey that explores the experience of either supporting, or being, someone going through the physical changes and complex emotions that accompany ill-health and death. The poems themselves range from the savage to the sad to the sublime, encompassing a wide range of perspectives on illness, care, loss, grieving and comfort. They highlight the centrality of the human spirit. Attending to the Fact is an unusual source of experience, insight and self-recognition, both for professionals working with the seriously ill and dying, and also for patients and their families and all who have been touched by grief. The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged.

    Paperback. Condition: Very Good. `The combined practice area of the contributors to this book include social work, psychotherapy, sociology, counselling psychology, creative writing, nursing, and medicine. Several of the authors have multiple professions, and have come to palliative care later in their careers. Indeed, the combined skill of this group is impressive. Each chapter is unique and each story worthy in its own right. The commonalities are remarkable also. I recommend it to all palliative care professionals, when feeling a little-jaded about what we are doing and being swept along with the winds of changing technology and evidenced based practice, and to other health-care workers who feel an inclination to bring a little humanity to their care'. -Omega Vol 51 (1) 77-86, 2005 `This book offers unique way of looking at caring for palliative parents by using the influence of the self. It also offers an opportunity for reflection how our experiences can enrich the experience of patient's faced with the prospect of dying. Professionals who enjoy reading stories will thoroughly enjoy this book.' -International Journal of Palliative Nursing `In a way it is surprising that palliative care has not produced more books like this: collections in which those engaged in the daily work of caring for dying and bereaved people share something of their motivations for entering this particular world, their experiences along the way, and their reasons for staying in or quitting it.Christina Mason was right to embark on this project. She has edited a book that deserves to be widely read.' -Palliative Medicine 2003 `This is a delightful book. Although its focus is on professionals working in specialist palliative care, it would be useful for any practitioner wanting to learn more about reflective practice or their motivations for caring.' - Journal of Community Nursing This rich collection of accounts explores the personal and professional experiences of palliative care workers. Contributors from a variety of disciplines associated with care at the end of life - among them social workers, a nurse, a doctor, a counselling psychologist, an academic researcher, a psychotherapist and a creative writing therapist - explain how and why they came to work in palliative care, what they bring to the work and the ways in which it has enriched their own lives. Including descriptive examples of their work with clients and families, they discuss the spiritual needs of patients, how to manage personal boundaries and power relations, the use of narrative and story telling in care work and the impact of working with people who are very ill and grieving on every day life. This thoughtful and positive book presents a variety of experience-based perspectives on working in palliative care. Emphasising the use of self and the importance of reflective practice in professional work, this book will be of relevance to all professionals in medical and social care who want to gain a deeper understanding of their work and of the motivation underlying it. The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged.

    Paperback. Condition: Very Good. Adoption is currently taking centre stage in family policy in the UK and USA, with new legislation that places emphasis on providing and maintaining permanent family homes for children separated from their families of origin. This book explores the challenges of adoption and how best to support families coping with these demands. Angie Hart and Barry Luckock draw together adoptive parents' experiences, professional practice and empirical research to provide an integrative account of adoption support services. Using three fictional families, they illustrate issues such as the adoption of older children, single, lesbian and gay adoptive parenting and the importance of openness in adoptive relationships. The authors bring sociological and anthropological perspectives to bear on current developmental psychology models of trauma and attachment and examine the effectiveness of various therapeutic interventions. Developing Adoption Support and Therapy will make current research and legislation on adoption support accessible to therapists, parents, social work practitioners and managers alike.

    Paperback. Condition: Very Good. Raising Responsible Teenagers combines comprehensive discussion about child development with practical advice on parenting styles and discipline techniques. Each stage of child development is discussed, creating a picture of where the child 'is at' on entering adolescence. Adolescence is the final stage of childhood, the springboard to adult life and a time where values are being blended into a mixture that parents can still greatly influence. Bob Myers provides the tools for this, such as the use of rules made and agreed on by all the family and based on the simple philosophy of `a fair go and safety for everyone'. Being a realist, he also offers ways of handling difficult behaviour and shows how adults in the parenting role can focus control on their own parenting skills, rather than focusing just on the child. Each chapter contains useful examples and checklists for further thought, as well as a fund of useful advice. This book will provide an extremely useful guide for parents, teachers and all those who wish to interact with young people in a conflict-free atmosphere, and who wish to see them become considerate, achieving and responsible adults. The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged.
