The integration of developmental perspectives, attachment theory, and neurobiological implications provides a thorough summary of the many factors that can affect a child's growth and development, and the subsequent influence on grief expression. Chapters explore relevant social topics rarely addressed in other texts, such as the death of African American men, suicide among Aboriginal youth in Canada, death/suicide among LGBTQ youth and social media's influence. Also included are practical tips for helping professionals who want to better understand how grief and loss affect children and teens, as well as a meditation guide that provides concrete opportunities for growth and healing.

'This workbook, developed after 23 years of work with children, is designed to help children change their 'stinking thinking.' 'Stinking Thinking' are ways children think that cause them to be anxious, depressed, angry, guilty, frustrated, embarrassed, insecure, or jealous. The exercises help children ages 6 to 12 years develop cognitive skills, positive thought patterns, and resilience to cope with daily hardships. The wizard theme is attractive to children and encourages them to interact with parents or therapists as they practice the concepts. Therapists and parents will find this workbook user-friendly, attractive, and fun. It is a valuable adjunct to cognitive behavioral approaches. Children are fascinated with wizards and enjoy the exercises.' - Virginia Child Protection Newsletter 'This ingenious workbook, designed for use by psychologists, teachers or parents, is highly visual and interactive and could beneficially be used with individuals and groups of children. Based on the CBT approach, it encourages children to explore their negative thinking patterns which in turn enhances their ability to cope with daily challenges. The author has cleverly used the world of magic as a backdrop to each session, and children are enticed to become "super thinking wizards" as they learn to outsmart negative thinking.' - The Psychologist 'Joann Altiero's No More Stinking Thinking is a workbook for parents, teachers and therapists to teach children how to develop the cognitive skills and resilience that will help them to cope with daily adversity, including criticism, disappointment and bullying. Each lesson explains a different type of "stinking thinking" - from ignoring the big picture or jumping to conclusions, to making a big (or little) deal out of something - and teaches children how to spot and combat it. The book aims to teach children about the power of positive, healthy and confident thinking and assertive behaviours. A final "exam" and a graduation certificate are included. No More Stinking Thinking is accessible and fully interactive and an ideal tool for helping children develop positive thinking in an imaginative and exciting way.' - Afasic News 'This workbook aims to help those working with children teach positive thinking. Simple exercises encourage children to think about any negative views they may have about themselves and address them. Each chapter looks at a particular problem, for example jumping to conclusions. There are fun activities as well as exercises to summarise what has been learnt and children can work towards becoming a Super Wizard Thinker.' - ChildrenNow 'This book is written to help children combat negative thinking. The children work through the book with you and become a wizard of positive thinking! The idea of the book is very good and is written in a very light hearted manner. I would recommend this book to anyone who feels their child needs some help feeling good about themselves.' - www.ncma.org.uk 'This book is a workbook for parents/carers and children to encourage positive thinking. It is written in a friendly style, which makes it easy for children to follow. I particularly liked the lay out, it is in 6 chapters for steps to positive thinking and the pages are clearly laid out with lots of pictures and activities and spaces to draw your own pictures. The pictures complement the text well and make the chapters more fun. The activities are easy for the children to follow as well as making them think about what they have just read. I shall be using it in my setting and would recommend it to other childminders.' - National Child-Minding Association 'I think this workbook would be a useful resource for professionals, in particular teachers, who could use the exercises as discussions points when working with a group of children.' - Adoption-net.co.uk How can children learn to combat negative thinking in a fun and constructive way? By applying to be a wizard of positive thinking, of course! Joann Altiero's No More Stinking Thinking is an easy-to-use workbook for use by parents, teachers, and therapists to teach children how to develop the cognitive skills and resilience that will help them to cope with daily adversity, including criticism, disappointment and bullying. Each lesson in this mental health "wizard class" explains a different type of "Stinking Thinking" - from ignoring the big picture or jumping to conclusions to making a big (or little) deal out of something - and teaches children how to spot and combat it.

`In his clear and accessible style, Colby Pearce defines the value and significance of resilience as an essential aspect of psychological survival. He traces the origins of resilience in the early relationships which shape our emotional and social development and describes processes and responses that enhance resilience for children who have had a less than adequate start in life. This is a valuable book for anyone involved in children's emotional well-being, from parents and community to schools and policy makers.'-Heather Geddes, Educational Psychotherapist and author of Attachment in the Classroom This is a short, accessible guide to promoting resilience in children. Resilience helps children to cope with adversity and `stand on their own two feet', which can be crucial to their development, well-being, and future independence and success in adulthood. The author covers three key factors that affect resiliency: vulnerability to stress and anxiety, attachment relationships and access to basic needs. For each, the author gives practical advice and strategies, such as how to regulate children's stress and anxiety, how to encourage and maintain secure attachments, and how to assure children that their needs are understood and will be met. The model presented will help parents and carers ensure their children grow up happy, healthy and resilient. This book will be invaluable for parents, carers and practitioners in supportive roles caring for children.

ظل يُقال لنا طيلة عشرات السنوات إن التفكير الإيجابي هو المفتاح إلى حياة سعيدة ثرية. لكن مارك مانسون يشتم تلك " الإيجابية " ويقول: " فلنكن صادقين، السيء سيء وعلينا أن نتعايش مع هذا ". لا يتهرّب مانسون من الحقائق ولا يغفلها بالسكّر، بل يقولها لنا كما هي: جرعة من الحقيقة الفجِّة الصادقة المنعشة هي ما ينقصنا اليوم. هذا الكتاب ترياق للذهنية التي نهدهد أنفسنا بها، ذهنية " فلنعمل على أن يكون لدينا كلنا شعور طيب " التي غزت المجتمع المعاصر فأفسدت جيلًا بأسره صار ينال ميداليات ذهبية لمجرد الحضور إلى المدرسة. ينصحنا مانسون بأن نعرف حدود إمكاناتنا وأن نتقبلها. وأن ندرك مخاوفنا ونواقصنا وما لسنا واثقين منه، وأن نكفّ عن التهرب والفرار من ذلك كله ونبدأ مواجهة الحقائق الموجعة، حتى نصير قادرين على العثور على ما نبحث عنه من جرأة ومثابرة وصدق ومسؤولية وتسامح وحب للمعرفة. لا يستطيع كل شخص أن يكون متميزًا متفوقًا. ففي المجتمع ناجحين وفاشلين؛ وقسم من هذا الواقع ليس عادلًا وليس نتيجة غلطتك أنت. وصحيح أن المال شيء حسن، لكن اهتمامك بما تفعله بحياتك أحسن كثيرًا؛ فالتجربة هي الثروة الحقيقية. إنها لحظة حديث حقيقي صادق لشخص يمسكك من كتفيك وينظر في عينيك. هذا الكتاب صفعة " منعشة لهذا الجيل حتى تساعده في عيش حياة راضية مستقرة.

أيهما أشد خطراً، المسدس أم حوض السباحة؟ ما هي الأشياء المشتركة بين معلمي المدارس ومصارعي السومو؟ لماذا ما يزال تجار المخدرات يعيشون مع أمهاتهم؟ ما هو مقدار اهتمام الوالدين حقاً؟ ما هو تأثير قضية «رو» و«ويد» في جرائم العنف؟ قد لا تبدو هذه الأسئلة مثل الأسئلة النمطية التي يسألها الاقتصادي، لكن ستيفن د. ليفيت ليس اقتصادياً نمطياً؛ إنه عالم شجاع أكثر من أي شيء آخر، يدرس المادة والأحاجي في الحياة اليومية ــ من الغش والجريمة إلى الرياضة وتربية الأطفال ــ وتقوم استنتاجاته عادة على قلب الحكمة التقليدية رأساً على عقب. وغالباً ما يبدأ بتل كبير من المعطيات وبسؤال بسيط لم يطرح من قبل. إنه يهتم ببعض هذه الأسئلة مثل قضايا الحياة والموت، وبعضها الآخر ذو ميزات استثنائية دون شك. وهكذا يحتوي هذا الكتاب على حقل جديد من الدراسة، وهو (الاقتصاد العجيب). ومن خلال سرده للقصص الآسرة ومن النظرة العميقة غير المباشرة، يبين ليفيت وزميله ستيفن ج. دوبنر أن الاقتصاد -في جذوره- دراسة للحوافز ـــ كيف يحصل الناس على ما يريدون أو يحتاجون، لاسيما عندما يريد الناس الآخرون الشيء ذاته أو يحتاجونه. في كتابهما (الاقتصاد العجيب)، يشرع المؤلفان في استكشاف الجانب الخفي ـــ من كل شيء؛ الأعمال الداخلية لعصابة مخدرات، وحقيقة الوسطاء العقاريين، وأساطير تمويل الحملات. وقصص الغش لدى معلمي المدارس. وأسرار جمعية كوكلوكس كلان (العرقية). ومن هنا فإذا كانت الأخلاق تمثل كيف نريد للعالم أن يسير، فإن الاقتصاد يمثل كيف يعمل العالم فعلاً. صحيح إن قراء هذا الكتاب سيتسلحون بقصص وأحاجٍ تكفي لتروى في آلاف الحفلات، لكن كتاب (الاقتصاد العجيب) يستطيع أن يقدم أكثر من ذلك، إنه يعيد تعريف الطريقة التي ننظر بها إلى العالم الحديث تعريفاً حرفياً. العبيكان للنشر
