International Child Law examines and discusses the international legal framework and issues relating to children. Analysing both public and private international legal aspects, this cross-disciplinary text promotes an understanding of the ongoing development of child law, children’s rights and the protection of the child. Examining the theoretical background to the law, and providing a concise and clear overview of the instruments and institutions that protect children internationally, this text then focuses on key themes and issues in child law and children’s rights. This new edition has been updated and revised throughout, including expanded material on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, as well as discussion of recent landmark developments on the law relating to recruiting child soldiers as a result of Lubanga (2012). The third edition also includes a new case study feature that critically considers key themes and issues in international child law in a real world context. Drawing on a range of legal and other disciplines, International Child Law is a valuable resource for those in the course of study and research in this area.

This new work provides a comprehensive and thought provoking coverage of the ways in which the law and children interact. Apart from being a valuable resource to those working with children, this book will greatly assist those teaching in this area, whether in law schools or other disciplines, as there is currently little on the market which address the breadth of this important topic. The editors have brought together a range of expert authors in public and private law areas such as criminal law, human rights law, immigration law, family law, medical law, disability and discrimination law, education and the legal process. The book is designed not only to highlight the relevant law in each area, but also to identify where the current debates lie for each topic.

"Dr. Wheeler has skillfully crafted a text that covers basic psychiatric principles and skills from developing a therapeutic relationship and assessing and diagnosing the client to providing evidence-based psychotherapy for a variety of patient populations... This text is an excellent primer for teaching therapy skills and, although targeting graduate psychiatric nursing students, would prove equally valuable for students of any mental health discipline. It is also a resource for experienced clinicians wanting to expand their understanding of trauma and how adaptive information processing might be used as an organizing framework for all psychotherapy." --Linda Mabey, Journal of EMDR Practice and Research DESCRIPTION This is a how-to compendium of evidence-based approaches to practicing psychotherapy for both the experienced and neophyte advanced practice psychiatric nurse. This book integrates neuroscience with relationship science and unites disparate psychotherapeutic approaches into a model that is concise and straightforward, yet sufficiently comprehensive to provide a framework for practice. The most useful therapeutic models are highlighted with principles, and techniques of treatment for nurse psychotherapists and those with prescriptive authority. This second edition expands the award-winning first edition, providing guidelines, forms, and case studies to assist APPNs in deciding which treatment to use based on psychotherapy outcome studies and practice guidelines.

The new Brussels II Regulation applies to persons who are either nationals, habitually resident, or domiciled in a member state of the European Community. It deals with issues concerning jurisdiction and recognition in respect of dissolution of marriage and parental responsibility. In relation to decisions regarding parental responsibility, the new regulation is much wider in scope than its predecessor, since it extends to measures for the protection of all children and is not limited to consideration of their interests in the context of matrimonial proceedings. This supplement to International Movement of Children: Law, Practice, and Procedure, the established authoritative text in the area, provides a comprehensive guide to the complexities of the new Brussels II Regulation, including detailed examination of jurisdictional matters, enforcement of access rights, and the revised rules governing international child abduction. The Appendices contain all relevant source material including the full text of the new Regulation.

Essential Surgery is a comprehensive and highly illustrated textbook suitable for both clinical medical students as well junior surgical trainees, preparing for postgraduate qualifications in surgery such as the MRCS. Covering general surgery, trauma, orthopaedics, vascular surgery, paediatric surgery, cardiothoracic surgery and urology, it incorporates appropriate levels of basic science throughout. The book is ideal for modern clinical courses as well as being a practical manual for readers at more advanced levels. Its main aim is to stimulate the reader to a greater enjoyment and understanding of the practice of surgery. Essential Surgery incorporates a problem-solving approach wherever possible, emphasising how diagnoses are made and why particular treatments are used. The pathophysiological basis of surgical diseases is discussed in relation to their management, acting as a bridge between basic medical sciences and clinical problems. The uniformity of the writing style and the clarity of elucidation will encourage continued reading, while the emphasis on the principles of surgery will enable a real understanding of the subject matter. The book’s extensive use of original illustrations, boxes and tables emphasises important concepts and will aid revision. The principles of operative surgery and perioperative care are explained together with outlines of common operations, enabling students and trainee surgeons to properly understand procedures and to participate intelligently in the operating department. A major revision of the text has taken full account of the progressive evolution of surgery and includes new concepts that have advanced medical understanding. New topics have been added to ensure the book’s contents match the curriculum of the UK Intercollegiate MRCS examination, including patient safety, surgical ethics, communication, consent, clinical audit and principles of research. The broad experience of surgical teaching and training of two new authors has brought a fresh perspective on the book’s contents and its presentation. New consensus guidelines for managing common disorders have been incorporated where appropriate.

Understanding Parricide is the most comprehensive book available about juvenile and adult sons and daughters who kill their parents. Dr. Heide moves far behind the statistical correlates of parricide by synthesizing the professional literature on parricide in general, matricide, patricide, double parricides, and familicides. As a clinician, she explains the reasons behind the killings. Understanding Parricide includes in-depth discussion of issues related to prosecuting and defending parricide offenders. The book is enriched with its focus on clinical assessment, case studies, and follow-up of parricide offenders, as well as treatment, risk assessment, and prevention.
