When Love is Not Enough
Jane Gregory's daughter Chrissy exhibits behaviour which people find challenging - screaming fits, stripping off her clothes and violent outbursts. As an adult she was diagnosed with a rare chromosome disorder and autism. Jane offers practical advice for other parents, and explains how she got the right support and effective treatment.
Introducing Children and Young People to their Autistic Spectrum Disorder
This workbook is designed for a child to work through with an adult. Unlike other books, its content and layout are devised for children who read, think and process information differently. The first part is a theoretical introduction. The second part is a series of worksheets through which the child creates a unique book about themselves.
Guidelines for Research-Informed Practice
This book describes recently developed intervention programs which have been shown to be effective for reducing the incidence, severity or impact of domestic violence in particular populations. It also features assessment programs that identify risk profiles of potential perpetrators and victims.
James Williams is an SP (special person) - he was diagnosed with autism in childhood. His mother, Joan Matthews, is an NP (normal person). As James grew up, his different perception of the world created problems. Together, he and his mother met the challenges with ingenuity and humour. This is a book of their practical solutions to those problems.
This book is based on the life accounts of 244 children of minority ethnic origin who were placed with predominantly white foster carers and adopters. The book provides a most interesting overview of the decision-making and planning processes that shape the placement in care of children of minority ethnic origin in the UK.
The Cost of Fear
Psychodynamic Perspectives on Abuse brings together psychoanalytic psychotherapists, political theorists, organisational consultants, social workers and social policy academics to explore the nature and ramifications of abuse in a new light. Psychodynamic Perspectives on Abuse is unique in its range and focus.
Social and Personal Perspectives
Documenting experiences representative of all those involved in the adoption process - adoptee, adoptive and birth parent and professional, and informed by psychoanalytic and social and cultural theory perspectives, this important addition to the literature on adoption highlights a new dimension in social policy and personal accounts in this field.
Based on the first-hand accounts of children and their mothers regarding their experiences of both domestic violence and support services, this is the first book to examine children's experiences of a range of service provision in response to domestic violence.
A Narrative Approach
The book includes the correspondence between Marner and a number of children who have presented with problems varying from nightmares to anorexia. It shows how the extra encouragement from the therapist helps the child to overcome his or her particular monster or problem externalized as a persecuting phenomenon.
Speaking the Unspeakable
Bonnie Meekums presents creative groupwork strategies and techniques for professionals working with women who have experienced child sexual abuse. The practical strategies have been developed from an understanding of the complex process of recovery, and are informed by the voices of women who have been abused in childhood themselves.
