When I was four and a half years old, I found my mother passed-out on her bedroom floor. She had overdosed--shortly after giving birth to my baby brother, and she went on to spend six months in a psychiatric hospital. On one of the many days she was away, I remember sitting in the backseat of our car with my older brother as my father drove us to the store, when suddenly our car collided head-on with another vehicle. I was too young to understand everything happening at the time, but, in the months that followed, I became parentless for a span of time that seemed like years. That experience set the stage for a lifelong interest in the impacts of childhood trauma. It also sparked my passion for healing others. Today, based on the model created by best-selling author and trauma expert Pia Mellody (Facing Co-dependence ©2003), I share with you, Gifts from a Challenging Childhood: Creating a Practice for Becoming Your Healthiest Self. In these pages, you will: * Learn and adopt 5 Core Practices for healthy living * Cultivate a framework for your functional adult Self * Gain clarity about your family-of-origin history * Reparent your historically hurt places * Speak your truth, and learn to have your own back * Gather and use resources to help you heal from childhood trauma "In Gifts from a Challenging Childhood, author Jan Bergstrom describes with empathy and clarity the exact emotional, intellectual and neurological ways that children's brains respond to trauma, and how the impact of that experience endures in the child's life throughout adulthood. Bergstrom explains how our basic needs as children for love, protection, validation and expression must be met by our parents; and how, when these needs are not met in childhood, we can end up with one-up or one-down self-esteem and over-protective or under-protective boundaries as adults. In-depth descriptions of supportive, therapeutic techniques abound in this book, from mindfulness to grounding to writing a letter to yourself. Whether you experienced traumatic neglect or excessive control and enmeshment at the hands of your parents, this book will not only help you identify what went wrong for you, it will also provide you with validating, supportive and compassionate ways to reparent yourself." Jonice Webb, PhD Bestselling author of Running On Empty: Overcome Your Childhood Emotional Neglect and Running On Empty No More: Transform Your Relationships. "Jan's book is a precious guide to untangling the complications and difficulties many of us have in our adult lives, arising from traumatic childhoods. Read it, underline it, take it with you on your personal journey. This book will bring you home." Nick Morgan. President of Public Words, Inc, a communications consulting company, and author of Can You Hear Me? How to Communicate with People in a Virtual World. "The devastating consequences of childhood trauma for the individual, families, and society at large are far-reaching, and cannot be overestimated. Jan Bergstrom's new work builds beautifully on Pia Mellody's Post Induction Therapy model, offering hope and a detailed path forward for healing childhood wounds and living an authentic and empowered life."

As a professional animal communicator and teacher, Wolfe discovered that her most naturally gifted students, like her, had experienced early childhood trauma. She shares her story to examine the connection between childhood trauma and how it may access and intensify empathic, intuitive and healing abilities. However, along with these gifts comes a challenging energetic sensitivity, which unmanaged, can create anxiety, overwhelm, physical illness and depression.

In their chronological portrait, the authors synthesize the many voices of exceptional children, providing a historical picture that includes not only the perspective of the professional, but also, to the extent possible, that of the "client." The book begins by placing the origins of special education in historical context from Aristotle through the Enlightenment and beyond. Subsequent chapters consider individual "conditions" traditionally associated with specialized approaches (e.g., blindness, deafness, and retardation), discuss conditions that have given rise to further differentiation of childhood exceptionality, and offer a synthesis of themes and a prospective for a "new history," now emerging, of children considered exceptional.

In her timely guidebook, Boomer therapist Marcia Newman brings a fresh response to an anti-aging American culture that targets women to find their value in remaining youthful looking. Five Gifts of Pro-Aging was born out of Marcia’s own aging crisis and her three decades of working with women who increasingly find themselves obsessed with the insatiable practice of nip, tuck, highlight, laser, and fill. Through humor and her no-nonsense style, Marcia provides valuable tips, motivational questions, and personal stories to help you age more consciously and comfortably. Five Gifts of Pro-Aging will help you to: • Take stock of your own age phobia • Uncover and recover from prolific social stigmas about growing older • Learn about feminine carry-over behaviors and how to transform them • Clear up unfinished business and bring honor to your maturity • Feed your seasoned inner animal with the gift of wildness • Join with other pro-aging women who are bringing the humane back into humanity Marcia Newman is dedicated to helping Baby Boomers pioneer healthier aging attitudes and actions. In Marcia’s own words, “We are the perfect ones to revolutionize the aging freedom movement. It is my joy and privilege to bring this labor of love into the mix. My vision holds a brighter, more mature culture where women are able to receive full human dignity, no matter one’s chronological age.”

“Each poignant and thought-provoking story will give you the feeling of a long-lost treasure.” – Mark Victor Hansen, Co-creator of The New York Times Best-selling Series, Chicken Soup for the Soul In 52 weeks of self-discovery, The Chakra Wisdom Oracle Toolkit guides you in opening up your intuition, removing blockages from your life, improving your relationships and realizing your highest potential. Here is the full text of the fables that were revealed by angels to the popular intuitive Tori Hartman and then lost for two decades. Week by week, you will explore the 49 fables, beginning with “Renewal” – the fable of Geranium, which promises a new beginning. This standalone book can also be used in conjunction with the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Cards, a divinatory deck of 49 cards, each one representing one of the fables. Each fable is associated with one of the major chakras and has its own shade of colour (Geranium Red, for example) and a fairy-tale illustration; the visuals add extra layers of meaning to the words of the fable. There are five days of activity per week, each requiring just 10–20 minutes. On Monday, you read the fable and set your intention for the week. On Tuesday, you explore the meaning of the week’s colour. Wednesday is the Journal Journey, when you complete a written task. On Thursday there are exercises in self-understanding, to be done alone or in a group. Friday has a guided meditation. Through short bursts of activity each day, the fables will seep into your life, giving you new perspectives and helping you to make the changes you truly want.

Larry learned early on that a mans hand-shake is his bond. To this day he retains that bond as well as one of honesty and compassion for others in all his dealings. Most men are honest, but at times ambition or greed can influence the best of intentions. Although Larry had a humble beginning, he rose above it to become a very successful man and was able to change dysfunctional living practices with his own family. He instilled love, honesty and respect in their upbringing all the while exhibiting patience and understanding. His greatest love is for God, his family, friends and nature. That love has been an inspiration in the writing of both Poetic Expressions and now his autobiography. Larry also managed to take time out of his busy schedule to work with other kids as noted by all his years of coaching baseball and never missing any event that they were involved in, even if he had to leave work early. His love of nature is unequalled. Larrys descriptions have the ability to take you there. Sometimes that love of nature has resulted in butting heads with preservationists as to timberland and renewable resources. This is especially so with them filing lawsuits to stop burnt and diseased timber harvesting. A sense of humor didnt pass him by either as noted in his autobiography again and again, as he says, a man without mirth is akin to a horse without hooves. For both must tread lightly upon the rocky roads of life. To sum it up Larry quotes an unknown author, the rigors of senior years may prove to be very challenging Have we put up a good fight throughout or is it the confusion of genes and how they are inherited to blame?

The Routledge International Companion to Gifted Education is a ground-breaking collection of fully-referenced chapters written by many of the most highly-respected authorities on the subject from around the world. These fifty contributors include distinguished scholars who have produced many of the most significant advances to the field over the past few decades, like Joseph Renzulli and Robert Sternberg, alongside authorities who ask questions about the very concepts and terminology embodied in the field – scholars such as Carol Dweck and Guy Claxton. This multi-faceted volume: highlights strategies to support giftedness in children, providing ideas that work and weeding out those that don’t; is written in jargon-free language in an easy-to use themed format; is the most authoritative collection of future-focused views, ideas and reflections, practices and evaluations yet produced; includes chapters dealing with the major controversies and concerns in the field today, from the problems of identification to changing understandings of giftedness and creativity. The international aspect of the Companion, and its juxtaposition of points of view – whereby chapters are deliberately positioned and accompanied by editorial commentary to highlight the contrasts with each other – ensures that different views are addressed, allowing the reader to absorb and reflect upon the many perspectives on each issue. The Companion is a guide to the new ideas and controversies that are informing gifted education discussion and policy-making around the world. It is a first class resource to students and researchers alike.

Standing Up for Something Every Day is written for present and future teachers in the early childhood classroom who truly want to make a difference in the lives of children. Exploring some of the most complex and pressing social and ethical dilemmas confronting early childhood educators, the author provides concrete ways of addressing social justice concerns in practice. Four model teacher-guides accompany readers from chapter to chapter, and demonstrate strategies for standing up for children through ethics, respect for diversity, and commitment to advocacy for children. This book offers important insights, encouragement, and practical suggestions to early childhood educators who are committed to excellence and equity in their classrooms. “In short, this is a book for all who are committed to improving early care and education from the ground up. It is not just for those who already call themselves advocates, but is especially for teachers who may be encouraged through these pages to engage, question, reflect, and act, patiently taking small steps with the resources and support that Fennimore clearly offers. This is a book that informs us about advocacy on many levels, and, most importantly, it invites and inspires us to stand up and act.” —From the foreword by Celia Genishi, Professor Emerita of Education, Department of Curriculum & Teaching, Teachers College, Columbia University Book Features: A focus on classroom life, including relationships with administrators, colleagues, and families. Guidance for following the NAEYC Code of Ethics. Questions for discussion and practical ideas for getting started. Teacher-guides for working in different settings: rural, suburban, and urban. Beatrice S. Fennimore is a professor of education at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.
