Although medical advances have remarkably increased the survival rate of the severely burned, such patients still encounter physical and psychological pain and disability, disfigurement, and social rejection. Rising from the Flames examines the experience of the severely burned as survivors confront it, not just as a medical event but as a human ordeal involving social, cultural, psychological, and medical trauma. It discusses the causes of burns, the physiology of injury and healing, the forms of isolation burn patients endure, and the cultural meaning attached to burns and burned persons.

"Greydon West had it all... a successful medical practice... a beautiful family... the dream life... or at least that's what he thought. Until the women he was married to destroyed it all... and everything burned to ashes in the blink of an eye. Now a single dad, he was forced to hire a nanny for his two children. She turned out to be... unconventional in every way. Only unconventional changed into lust... an unthinkable blazing hunger. But she was forbidden... off-limits. And he had sworn never to allow another woman to break down his walls"--Page 4 of cover.

Poetry can be a very deep manner of expression, akin to music and visual arts. It comes both from the soul and from the imagination. From the Ashes is, in many ways, representative of the diversity of experiences life offers us. The book is divided into three main sections. The Fires section represents the chaotic and challenging energy life contains. The Ashes section represents the processing and lessons learned through life's trials, and the Flight section represents the rising above those trials with new wisdom. The majority of the poems are a reflection of my own thoughts and feelings, but some are purely imagination, and others are a result of "challenges" from my fellow Black Rose poets to write about a picture, feeling, etc. These poems represent the best and worst life has to offer us. I feel that to understand life, one must experience, at least vicariously, all aspects of it.

Presents 100+ interventions using creative and expressive arts counseling techniques in school settings Expressive arts therapies are a rich resource for use with children and adolescents, who are often unresponsive to traditional talk therapy, and highly useful to school counselors who must overcome cultural, language, and ability barriers that are increasingly present in diverse and multicultural school settings. This is the first book written specifically for school counselors about using creative and expressive arts counseling techniques in school settings. It presents over 100 interventions using art, drama, music, writing, dance, and movement that school counselors can easily incorporate into their practices with individual students and groups, and in classroom settings. These creative interventions, based on the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model framework, support the key student domains of academic, career, and personal/social development. The text also meets the important demand for accountability in school counseling by providing guidelines for evaluating the effectiveness of each intervention. Addressing such issues as emotional expression, social skills development, managing anger/aggression, developing self-esteem, working well with diverse peers, career exploration, and academic skill development, the book is organized by specific types of expressive arts therapies and how they can be used to support different domains in the ASCA model. Each intervention outlines the presenting concerns for which it is most useful, appropriate grade levels, required materials, preparation needed, step-by-step instructions, modifications for special needs students, and an outcome assessment plan. A handy quick reference chart helps readers to quickly locate appropriate interventions for specific concerns. Ideal for the school counselor, social worker, or psychologist who may not have specific training in arts therapies, this book can also help trained arts therapists who will be working in a school setting to select appropriate interventions. Key Features: Presents over 100 creative and expressive arts interventions that can be easily incorporated into school counseling practice Addresses all relevant ASCA National Model domains (academic, career, and personal/social) Provides easy-to-follow preparation and delivery directions and outcome evaluation methods for each intervention Includes modifications for special needs populations Offers a handy quick reference chart matching interventions to appropriate concerns

Liliana Riley was born in April of 1984 to a young, unmarried mother who soon gave Liliana up for adoption. She never knew her father; in fact, she didn't know the real story of her birth until much later. When she learned the truth from her adopted parents, she felt anger. She felt she had been thrown away by her birth mother. This anger grew to encompass all aspects of her life toward the world and toward herself. Liliana's life never got easier. As a child, she was picked on by the other kids at school. As an adult, she was picked on by an abusive, alcoholic husband. Even in her role as mother to her own children, life seemed hell-bent on destroying Liliana. She began writing in an effort to heal her psychological wounds. The healing worked; through her difficulties, Liliana eventually found the strength to conquer her dreams. Rising from the Ashes is a journey to redemption after years of pain, suffering, and abuse. It goes to show that life is not easy. In Liliana's opinion, life is a battle, and the battle never ends while here on earth. Even so, the suffering she endured made her stronger. She made it through the turmoil, and although her life is far from over, her life lesson must be told in order to give hope to those now living in darkness.

German literary prodigy Johann Wolfgang von Goethe breaks ground again with this volume of sensual love poetry. Despite its titillating title, these poems -- though shockingly candid in the context of the early 1800s -- are tame by contemporary standards, and Goethe couches his carnal odes in coy, oblique metaphors.
