All families change over time. Sometimes a baby is born, or a grown-up gets married. And sometimes a child gets a new foster parent or a new adopted mom or dad. Children need to know that when this happens, it’s not their fault. They need to understand that they can remember and value their birth family and love their new family, too. Straightforward words and full-color illustrations offer hope and support for children facing or experiencing change. Includes resources and information for birth parents, foster parents, social workers, counselors, and teachers.

Traumatic or adverse experiences are pervasive among school-aged children and youth. Trauma undermines students' ability to learn, form relationships, and manage their feelings and behavior. School-based professionals working with traumatized students are often unaware of their complex needs or how to meet them within the hours of the typical school day. Combining knowledge of the cognitive and behavioral effects of trauma, evidence-based interventions, educational best practices, and the experiences of veteran educators, Supporting and Educating Traumatized Students: A Guide for School-Based Professionals presents a new framework for assisting students with a history of trauma. Designed specifically for busy educators who work with traumatized students daily, this volume brings together practitioners, researchers, and other experts with backgrounds in education, school psychology, school nursing, school social work, school counseling, school administration, clinical psychology, resilience, and trauma studies to examine the impacts of numerous traumatic experiences on school-aged children and youth. The book provides practical, effective, and implementable strategies and resources for adapting and differentiating instruction, modifying the classroom and school environments, and building competency for students affected by trauma. Chapters offer techniques and strategies designed for all types of educational environments and in the context of multiple potential sources of trauma. Supporting and Educating Traumatized Students is an essential resource for classroom teachers and for practicing school-based professionals. It is also useful for courses that address crisis, trauma, and education across a broad spectrum of specializations, including school social work, education, psychology, counseling, and school administration.

Reflecting the latest practices, accreditation requirements, and developments from the field, bestselling SOCIAL WORK AND SOCIAL WELFARE: AN INTRODUCTION, 7e gives readers a broad understanding about the social work profession and the role it plays in the social welfare system. Part of the Brooks/Cole Empowerment Series, the Seventh Edition is completely up to date and thoroughly integrates the core competencies and recommended practice behaviors outlined in the 2008 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). With its signature systems/ecological approach in understanding social welfare, the book focuses on specific social welfare areas in which social workers play major roles in policy and practice. It adopts the philosophy that there are many reasons why social problems occur, and students need to understand the history, values, factors (economic, political, and cultural) that surround these issues and the attempts to solve or address them. Instead of presenting a specific political perspective, the authors encourage readers to think critically about issues in a new way. Each chapter opens with a vignette about a social worker in a specific setting and closes with a discussion about the career opportunities for social workers in the area discussed.

Ihre Mission führt sie über dunkle Pfade, wo rachedurstige Geister lauern, und durch glühende Wüsten, die ihr alles abverlangen. Dabei muss sie ihren Feinden immer einen Schritt voraus sein.

Achtung Vampire: Zoey wird von einem Vampirspäher gezeichnet. Sie hat nun keine andere Möglichkeit als ihre Freunde, die alte Schule und ihre Familie zu verlassen und fortwährend als Vampirin im House of Night zu wohnen. Im Vampirinternat muss Zoey neben dem neuen Vampiralltag auch lernen mit Macht und Magie umzugehen. Schon bald wird nämlich klar, dass Zoey keine gewöhnliche Vampirin ist, sondern aussergewöhnliche Fähigkeiten besitzt und sie zur Anführerin der Töchter und Söhne der Dunkelheit bestimmt ist. "Gezeichnet" ist der Auftakt der Fantasy-Romanserie "House of Night". Im ersten Moment erinnert die Geschichte zwar an Harry Potter, doch im weiteren Verlauf grenzt sich das Abenteuer von Zoey und ihren Freunden zunehmend von ihm ab und die Eigenheiten der Vampire und ihren Abenteuern kommen deutlich zum Vorschein. Die Sprache ist z.T. geprägt mit jugendlichen Aussprüchen und witzigen Klammerkommentaren und passt bestens zu einem Jugendbuch. Ein bis zur letzten Seite spannender Fantasy-Roman mit Suchtpotential. Ab 12 Jahren, *****, Astrid Marty.

Was ist deine Bestimmung? Altruan – die Selbstlosen. Candor – die Freimütigen. Ken – die Wissenden. Amite – die Friedfertigen. Und schließlich Ferox – die Furchtlosen ... Fünf Fraktionen, fünf völlig verschiedene Lebensformen sind es, zwischen denen Beatrice, wie alle Sechzehnjährigen ihrer Welt, wählen muss. Ihre Entscheidung wird ihr gesamtes zünftiges Leben bestimmen, denn die Fraktion, der sie sich anschließt, gilt fortan als ihre Familie. Doch der Eignungstest, der über Beatrices innere Bestimmung Auskunft geben soll, zeigt kein eindeutiges Ergebnis. Sie ist eine Unbestimmte, sie trägt mehrere widerstreitende Begabungen in sich. Damit gilt sie als Gefahr für die Gemeinschaft. Beatrice entscheidet sich, ihre bisherige Fraktion, die Altruan, zu verlassen, und schließt sich den wagemutigen Ferox an. Dort aber gerät sie ins Zentrum eines Konflikts, der nicht nur ihr Leben, sondern auch das all derer, die sie liebt, bedroht...

"I have been through some of the worst of contentious divorce litigation," Alec Baldwin declares in A Promise to Ourselves. Using a very personal approach, he offers practical guidance to help others avoid the anguish he has endured. An Academy and Tony Award nominee and a 2007 recipient of Golden Globe, SAG, and Television Critics Association Awards for best actor in a comedy, Alec Baldwin is one of the best-known, most successful actors in the world. His relationship with Kim Basinger, the Academy Award–winning actress, lasted nearly a decade. They have a daughter named Ireland, and for a time, theirs seemed to be the model of a successful Hollywood marriage. But in 2000 they separated and in 2002 divorced. Their split---specifically the custody battle surrounding Ireland---would be the subject of media attention for years to come. In his own life and others', Baldwin has seen the heavy toll that divorce can take---psychologically, emotionally, and financially. He has been extensively involved in divorce litigation, and he has witnessed the way that noncustodial parents, especially fathers, are often forced to abandon hopes of equitable rights when it comes to their children. He makes a powerful case for reexamining and changing the way divorce and child custody is decided in this country and levels a scathing attack at what he calls the "family law industry." When it comes to his experiences with judges, court-appointed therapists, and lawyers, Baldwin pulls no punches. He casts a light on his own divorce and the way the current family law system affected him, his ex-wife, and his daughter, as well as many other families. This is an important, informative, and deeply felt book on a contentious subject that offers hope of finding a better way.
