Offering a new way of understanding the high self-harm and suicide rates among sexual and gender minority youth, this book prioritises the perspectives and experiences of queer young people, including those who have experience of self-harming and/or feeling suicidal. Presenting analysis based on research carried out with young people both online and face-to-face, the authors offer a critical perspective on the role of norms, namely developmental norms, gender and sexuality norms, and neoliberal norms, in the production of self-harming and suicidal youth. Queer Youth, Suicide and Self-Harm is unique in the way it works at the intersection of class and sexuality, and in its specific focus on transgender youth and the concept of embodied distress. It also examines the implications of this research for self-harm reduction and suicide prevention.

Personal transformation, liberation, and fulfillment can be discovered by anyone, anywhere, anytime, in the message and modeling of Jesus, not by denying or changing creed, race, gender, sexual orientation, or culture, but by freely manifesting the fullness of psychological and spiritual fulfillment. Jesus taught and modeled a universal, inclusive spirituality. This book illustrates that Jesus simultaneously taught and modeled the highest form of behavioral psychology applying to everyone, everywhere. The focus herein is a reexamination and reintroduction of the life and lessons of Jesus of Nazareth from a behavioral and inclusively spiritual point of view across creeds and cultures beyond religion. Those who study and practice the spiritual tenets of diverse religions and nonaffiliated spiritual pathways apart from Christianity will recognize shared experience, belief, and practice in the behavioral and spiritual lessons taught and modeled by Jesus. Therefore, this book is written for all people, religious and secular, inclusive of creed, race, gender, sexual orientation, and culture, who believe in an infinite, permeating principle that births and joins all of Creation, that is known by any name, form, or substance (God, Goddess, Father, Mother, Yahweh, Allah, Great Spirit, Grandmother, Grandfather, Creator, Maker, One, New Physics, et al.) from which all Creation springs, from which Creation cannot be separated, and through which we become the most transcendent and liberated of our human selves.

Freedom Rights And Pornography

In the essays that follow, Fred Berger argues for freedom of expression, civil disobedience, affirmative action and what he calls liberal judicial activism and against sex-role stereotyping, paternalism and the censorship of pornography. Underlying his liberalism is a unified theory. That theory consists of a conception of rights, a theory of value and a theory of government. The conception of a right that Berger defends derives from J ohn Stuart Mill and is captured by what he calls "the rights formula": to have a right is to have important interests that society ought to protect as a matter of general rule (pp. 2, 7, 17-18, 19, 95). Since rights are to be protected by general rule, case-by-case consideration of consequences is ruled out (pp. 3, 18, 96) and neither modest increases in the general welfare, nor majority opinion, can justify the violation of a right (pp. 14-15; 17-18). Berger combines this view of the nature of a right with an objective theory of value according to which the important interests that ought to be protected are ones that people have "whether they know them or not, whether they desire that in which they have an interest or not" (p.

A guide to leaving painful, destructive relationships behind—both at home and at work Toxic relationships often come disguised as seemingly normal ones. These subtly destructive relationships are characterized by the slow erosion of self-esteem, a loss of personal identity, or a growing desire to please friends, partners, and family members who are impossible to please. In this uplifting and informative book, transpersonal psychotherapist Avril Carruthers will take a close look at adult relationships to show why we get involved in toxic relationships in the first place, and instruct the reader on how to recognize if they’re involved in one. Once the toxic relationship is identified, the author shows the reader how to begin their journey toward healing and how to meet the world with a new kind of confidence, so that the cycle of toxic relationships can be broken once and for all. What Carruthers teaches is just how possible it can be to learn how to recognize the manipulative or sweetly corrosive partner, the family dynamics that make Christmas and other get-togethers seem like hell, or the nightmare boss who causes daily torment—and that we can learn to leave these painful, destructive patterns behind forever.

DIV How much economic freedom is a good thing? This book tells the story of how the business community, and the trade associations and think tanks that it created, launched three powerful assaults during the last quarter of the twentieth century on the federal regulatory system and the state civil justice system to accomplish a revival of the laissez faire political economy that dominated Gilded Age America. Although the consequences of these assaults became painfully apparent in a confluence of crises during the early twenty-first century, the patch-and-repair fixes that Congress and the Obama administration put into place did little to change the underlying laissez faire ideology and practice that continues to dominate the American political economy. In anticipation of the next confluence of crises, Thomas McGarity offers suggestions for more comprehensive governmental protections for consumers, workers, and the environment. /div
