The Explosive Child by Ross W. Greene, PhD Summary

Screaming, swearing, crying, hitting, kicking, spitting, biting...these are some of the challenging behaviors we see in kids who are having difficulty meeting our expectations. These behaviors often leave parents feeling frustrated, angry, overwhelmed, and desperate for answers. In this fully revised and updated book, Dr. Ross Greene helps you understand why and when your child does these things and how to respond in ways that are nonpunitive, nonadversarial, humane, and effective. Dr. Greene describes how best to: Understand the factors that contribute to challenging episodes. Identify the specific situations in which challenging episodes are likely to occur. Reduce or eliminate challenging episodes by solving the problems that cause them. Solve problems collaboratively (rather than unilaterally) and proactively (rather than reactively). Help your child develop the skills to be more flexible, solve problems, and handle frustration more adaptively. Reduce hostility and antagonism between you and your child. With Dr. Greene's practical, expert guidance, you and your child will forge a new relationship based on communication and mutual respect.

Le Cerveau de votre enfant by Daniel Siegel Summary

La Bible de l'éducation positive LES PARENTS ONT BESOIN D'UN MODE D'EMPLOI ADAPTÉ AUX ENFANTS D'AUJOURD'HUI Comment élever mon enfant ? Comment l'aider à être heureux, équilibré, respectueux des autres ? Que fautil faire, ne pas faire ? Y a-t-il une méthode efficace pour gérer les peurs, les colères ? Ces questions, tous les parents se les posent. Aujourd'hui, les découvertes sur le cerveau jettent une lumière nouvelle sur le comportement des enfants. Ce livre met à la portée des parents les éléments de base pour comprendre et agir. IL EST POSSIBLE D'AGIR POSITIVEMENT SUR LE CERVEAU DE L'ENFANT Le cerveau est notre organe le plus complexe : il comprend deux hémisphères, plusieurs aires – dont certaines sont dédiées au comportement moral, d'autres aux décisions ou à la motivation –, plusieurs " étages " – cerveau reptilien, limbique et cortex. La clé est de les intégrer dans un même circuit, comme les différents systèmes du corps humain. Quand tous ces éléments ne fonctionnent pas ensemble surviennent les problèmes : colères, caprices, agressivité. Par notre comportement en tant que parents, nous pouvons agir sur le bon fonctionnement du cerveau de l'enfant. UNE MERVEILLE DE PÉDAGOGIE ILLUSTRÉE Il mêle le savoir et la pratique. Chaque chapitre présente une connaissance sur le cerveau (les deux hémisphères, les deux étages du cerveau) et des techniques pour intégrer ce savoir au quotidien de l'enfant. Ces techniques sont systématiquement illustrées par : – Des scenettes sous formes de BD pour montrer des situations familières (opposition, troubles émotionnels) et expliquer au parents comment y répondre. – D'autres sont destinées à expliquer aux enfants le fonctionnement de leur cerveau.

Points forts tome 2 by Docteur T. Berry Brazelton,Joshua D. Sparrow Summary

Le Dr Brazelton, célèbre pédiatre américain, est connu pour sa théorie des « points forts », ces périodes de vulnérabilité qui vont de pair avec les grands bonds en avant du développement de l'enfant. Après avoir consacré un premier volet aux trois premières années de la vie de l'enfant, et fort de sa longue expérience, il applique ce concept aux trois années suivantes et à tous les problèmes qui peuvent surgir (contrôle de soi, dépassement des peurs, apprentissage de la lecture, découverte d'autrui...). Ensuite, une partie thématique permet aux parents de trouver des solutions face aux questions de l'alimentation, du sommeil, des retards de langage, et de faire la distinction entre les variations « normales » de comportement et les problèmes qui nécessitent l'aide d'un professionnel.

The School Discipline Fix: Changing Behavior Using the Collaborative Problem Solving Approach by J. Stuart Ablon,Alisha R. Pollastri Summary

A complete guide to a paradigm-shifting model of school discipline. Disruptive students need problem-solving skills, not punishment. Traditional school discipline is ineffective and often damaging, relying heavily on punishments and motivational procedures aimed at giving students the incentive to behave better. There is a better way. Dr. Ablon and his co-author Dr. Pollastri have been working with schools throughout the world to refine the Collaborative Problem-Solving (CPS) approach, creating a step-by-step program for educators based on the recognition—from research in neuroscience—that challenging classroom behaviors are due to a deficit of skill, not will. This book provides everything needed to implement the program, including reproducible assessment tools to pinpoint skill deficits in areas like frustration tolerance and flexibility that are at the root of students' challenging behaviors. Whether you are a teacher, counselor, coach, or administrator, the CPS approach to school discipline will provide you with a new mindset, an assessment process, and an effective intervention plan for each of your challenging students. You will walk away with strategies that are immediately actionable with the students in your life.

On Being a Person by Todd H. Speidell Summary

From the Introduction: The approach of this text will be multidisciplinary: psychologists, philosophers, theologians, and ethicists grappling with what it means to be a person. This volume will not attempt to provide a comprehensive history of psychology but will instead focus on selected representatives of various paradigms of psychology: from the þrst systematic psychologist, Aristotle, through psychology's development as an empirical science, and to recent developments in family systems theory. It will especially emphasize a social-relational-spiritual view of the self: namely, human relations to God and to others are essential to humanity.Ó

Sais-tu pourquoi je saute ? by Naoki Higashida Summary

" Quand Naoki explique Pourquoi je saute ? c'est à se demander pourquoi le reste du monde, lui, ne saute pas du même élan du coeur " –; Josef Schovanec Pour la première fois, un enfant atteint d'autisme sévère nous raconte l'autisme de l'intérieur. Il répond aux questions que les parents se posent : Pourquoi fuis-tu le contact visuel ? Est-il vrai que tu détestes qu'on te touche ? Pourquoi répètes-tu la même question sans arrêt ? Pourquoi sautes-tu en tapant des mains ?, etc. David Mitchell, l'un des meilleurs écrivains anglais de sa génération et père d'un enfant autiste, a découvert ce texte qui fut pour lui une révélation, une sorte de Scaphandre et le Papillon de l'autisme : " J'ai eu l'impression, pour la première fois, que notre fils nous racontait ce qui se passait dans sa tête. " Il a décidé de le traduire du japonais avec sa femme KA Yoshida : " Ce livre est bien plus qu'une somme d'informations, il apporte la preuve qu'il y a, emprisonné à l'intérieur du corps autistique, apparemment impuissant, un esprit aussi curieux, subtil et complexe que le vôtre, le mien, celui de n'importe qui. " Naoki a appris à communiquer grâce à une grille alphabétique. Il a écrit ce livre à 13 ans et l'a d'abord publié via Internet. Il a aujourd'hui 22 ans et communique toujours grâce à son clavier. Il vit à Kimitsu et tient un blog. Traduit de l'anglais par Daniel Roche

Answering the 8 Cries of the Spirited Child by David Arp,Claudia Arp Summary

Besides feeling ready to pull their hair out, parents of spirited children are often convinced that their spirited child would behave better if only Mom or Dad were smarter, wiser or more patient! In their new book on"difficult" children, child development experts Claudia and David Arp remind readers that there's no such thing as a Super Parent. Having a spirited child can make parenting more intense and sometimes overwhelming, but you can begin to recognize the eight most common cries for help and what they really mean: "Look at me!" "Did I do good?" "You're not listening!" "Let me do it my way!" "You can't make me anymore!" "I hate you!" "I can do it myself!" and "I am a big kid already!" The Arps -- with humor, compassion, insights from Scripture, and the latest in research -- show you ways to develop win-win strategies for nurturing your not-so-compliant child. Help just arrived.

Observing Children with Attachment Difficulties in Preschool Settings by Ann Frost,Jane Fain,Sian Templeton,Eleanor Durrant,Kim Golding Summary

For preschool children with emotional difficulties arising from difficulties in attachment, standard observations used in early years settings are not always helpful in identifying their problems and providing guidance on how they can be helped. Combining an accessible introduction to attachment and child development with a child observation tool for identifying behaviour, and the emotional needs underlying this behaviour, this book enables early years professionals to identify problems and provide appropriate support. 'Case study' boxes help to illustrate typical patterns of attachment, and all aspects of behaviour are covered including play, interaction with peers, neediness, and aggression. A range of handouts and activities is included, and guidance provided on how to work within professional boundaries. Written in clear, concise language, Observing Children with Attachment Difficulties in Preschool aims to equip the reader with the knowledge and skills needed to identify and support children's emotional and social difficulties. Suitable for use with children aged 2 – 5, this guide will be an invaluable resource for early years professionals, as well as for use by clinicians, teachers and learning support staff.

Social Workers' Desk Reference by N.A Summary

People all over the world are confronted by issues such as poverty, a lack of access to quality education, unaffordable and or inadequate housing, and a lack of needed health and mental services on a daily basis. Due to these issues, there is a need for social workers who have access to relevant and timely scholarly materials in order to meet the needs of those facing these issues. The social, psychological, and biological factors resulting from these issues determine the level of a person's mental health at any given point in time and it is necessary for social workers to continue to evolve and develop to the new faces and challenges of the times in order to adequately understand the effects of these issues. In the first and second editions of the Social Workers' Desk Reference, the changes that were occurring in social work practice, education, and research were highlighted and focused upon. This third edition continues in the same tradition and continues to respond to the changes occurring in society and how they are impacting the education, research, and practice of social work as a whole. With 159 chapters collaboratively written by luminaries in the profession, this third edition serves as a comprehensive guide to social work practice by providing the most recent conceptual knowledge and empirical evidence to aid in the understanding of the rapidly changing field of social work. Each chapter is short and contains practical information in addition to websites and updated references. Social work practitioners, educators, students, and other allied professionals can utilize the Social Workers' Desk Reference to gain interdisciplinary and interprofessional education, practice, and research.

Denied! Failing Cordelia: Parental Love and Parental-State Theft in Los Angeles Juvenile Dependency Court by Simon Cambridge Summary

The Cankered Rose and Esther's Revenge begins the author's dramatic journey of adopting his teenage daughter with severe attachment issues in Seattle. The heartbreak of then seeing Cordelia "stolen" by the efforts of his former wife and the child-welfare legal complex in Los Angeles, alongside that of the trauma of being denied during efforts to reunify with her are each foreshadowed here. Issues surrounding adoption trauma, parenting children with reactive attachment disorder, and the author's own struggles with Asperger's syndrome will be his constant companions on this perilous journey of adopting, losing, and then trying to reunite with his beloved daughter. In this and subsequent volumes, the author will also be questioning the ability of the child-welfare legal complex and the Los Angeles Juvenile Dependency Court to understand the nature of damaged child attachment or the therapeutic parenting needed to heal children with "special needs." Ultimately, each would be as responsible for "failing Cordelia" as the breaking of the violent waves for the shattering movement of the rocks on the beach.
