Only Brian’s father had read it all — until now.In this beautifully written memoir, Brian Harvey shares how after two months of voyaging with his father’s ghost, he finally finds out what happened in the O.R. that crucial night and why Dr. Harvey felt compelled to fight the excruciating accusations.

"A must read for parents, educators, and people with dyslexia. " -Gordon F. Sherman, Ph. D. , Past-President International Dyslexia… Association Did you know that many successful architects, lawyers, engineers—even bestselling novelists—had difficulties learning to read and write as children? In this groundbreaking book, Brock and Fernette Eide explain how 20% of people—individuals with dyslexia—share a unique learning style that can create advantages in a classroom, at a job, or at home. Using their combined expertise in neurology and education, the authors show how these individuals not only perceive the written word differently but may also excel at spatial reasoning, see insightful connections that others simply miss, understand the world in stories, and display amazing creativity. Blending personal stories with hard science, The Dyslexic Advantage provides invaluable advice on how parents, educators, and individuals with dyslexia can recognize and use the strengths of the dyslexic learning style in: material reasoning (used by architects and engineers); interconnected reasoning (scientists and designers), narrative reasoning (novelists and lawyers); and dynamic reasoning (economists and entrepreneurs. ) With prescriptive advice and inspiring testimonials, this paradigm-shifting book proves that dyslexia doesn’t have to be a detriment, but can often become an asset for success. .

A chilling expos of youth suicide driven by faith Tony Frost Tribune … Child and teen suicide is no stranger to this author I recall gazing at the stillness of my childhood friend in a coffin and the nun telling me that God had taken him back because he had been made of sin He had killed himself because word got out that he had been born out of wedlock Then there was that girl in my high school class who took the easy way out when she found herself with child A few months after I released my biography of John Paul I a gay teen called me and told me that my book had saved his life He had planned to take his life on that day because his faith condemned the person he happened to be During my years with the Children s Home and Hospital School I ve shared in the grief left in the wake of children s notes I have gone to live with Jesus Thousands of mentally and physically impaired among countless others have left the same legacy behind Then we have tragedies like F tima where two little children are saints today because their faith encouraged them to advance their deaths in slow and agonizing ways to suffer and die for sins of the flesh against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and a Catholic world that thinks it wonderful While through the years the preacher s hatred has taken its greatest toll in unwed mothers gay and transgender teens and other outcasts of religion his lure of heaven remains the leading cause of pre-puberty suicide today As for F tima I give you much more than the Vatican s beatification investigation which found these children tortured themselves with abrasive ropes and stinging nettles and abstained from drinking water on hot days As for me I must live out my days haunted by children s lives snuffed out by the preacher s irresponsible bluff because I had not acted sooner Thousands of tiny coffins lowered into the ground so that the preacher can sell his condominiums in the sky to sheep who lust for more Lucien Gregoire Though the author dismantles traditional concepts of heaven as peddled by preachers he leaves us with far greater opportunity as he proves the salvation tenet of the 33-Day Pope Don t knock yourself out over smart monkeys and Adam and Eve Each of us is responsible for our own evolution We can either choose to remain as mortal men or we can evolve as Gods

Substance Abuse and the Family demonstrates what it means to view addiction through a systems lens by considering biology and… genetics, family relationships, and larger systems. Throughout the text, Michael D. Reiter shows how to examine a person's predilection to become addicted, his or her social environment around substance use, the functionality of his or her family, and various treatment options. Chapters are organized around two sections: Assessment and Treatment. The first section pays attention to how the family system organizes around substance use and abuse. Here family roles, culture, and other issues such as family violence and resilience are covered. Two chapters are also included on the neuroscience and genetics of addiction, with contributions from Jaime L. Tartar and Christina Gobin. There are also chapters on working with partial systems, using genograms, and working in a culturally-sensitive way (with contributions from Dalis Arismendi), with culture-specific consideration paid to African American, Hispanic and Latin American, Asian American, and Native American families. The second half of the book explores what a systems orientation means in practice and goes over self-help groups for individuals and families. An overview of the major family therapy theories is included, which examines intergenerational, experiential, communication approaches, strategic, systemic, and post-modern models. A separate chapter examines issues faced by both youth and adult children of alcoholics. Intended for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as beginning practitioners, this text is one of the most penetrating and in-depth examinations on the topic available. .

This volume provides the skills practitioners need to conduct family therapy sessions in the home, school, and community. The authors… demonstrate how meetings outside of the traditional office setting can enable therapists to intervene actively in the various systems that affect clients' lives. This multisystems approach can be particularly useful when working with poor and ethnic minority families, whose support networks may include extended family, school personnel, and members of the "church family." Practitioners learn how to utilize out-of-office sessions to meet the people who are influential in clients' lives; observe the life realities of children, adolescents, and parents; and identify resources that can be mobilized to produce change. Detailed strategies are presented to help families navigate the overlapping demands of multiple agencies and institutions and to manage and prevent such problems as substance abuse, school drop-out, and child abuse. Throughout, therapeutic and ethical guidelines are illustrated by extensive clinical case material. The book is ideal for those already doing home-based work, as well as those who would like to incorporate it into their practice.
The memoir of a neuroscientist whose research led him to a bizarre personal discovery James Fallon had spent an… entire career studying how our brains affect our behavior when his research suddenly turned personal. While studying brain scans of several family members, he discovered that one perfectly matched a pattern he’d found in the brains of serial killers. This meant one of two things: Either his family’s scans had been mixed up with those of felons or someone in his family was a psychopath. Even more disturbing: The scan in question was his own. This is Fallon’s account of coming to grips with this discovery and its implications. How could he, a happy family man who had never been prone to violence, be a psychopath? How much did his biology influence his behavior? Fallon shares his journey to answer these questions and the discoveries that ultimately led to his conclusion: Despite everything science can teach, humans are even more complex than we can imagine. .
