“Given Cameron Waters’ history of traumas in and outside of foster care, we believe he was acting in self-defense toward his foster parent’s abusive behaviors...we see a great potential of rehabilitation in him. He’s a good kid,” Garry argues. "Good kids don't hit their foster parents and destroy other people's property." My stomach drops as I look down at my fingers, twitching like spiders, wishing they could climb up the walls and disappear. I don’t remember everything that happened. It was self-defense. Wasn’t it? He started beating on me first. Right? Would they believe that? At what point does flight become fight? Cameron has reached his threshold. Will he run? Or will he fight back? On a journey of finding family, peace, and love, he must first learn to win the battle in his head. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Jerome.

Health and Risk Issues in Adolescent Behavior
94,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Are all adolescents at risk? Can the adolescent period be navigated without sliding into problem behaviors? Health and Risk Issues in Adolescence: A Multi-factorial Perspective answers these questions and presents a holistic approach to understanding the psychosocial factors that predict outcomes in development. In the past, the period of adolescence has been maligned with problematic outcomes and intervention programs based on risk reduction alone have been limited in success. In today's society which is ravaged by drug and alcohol abuse, violence, cultism, and crime, this book is a paradigm shift in the development of intervention programs. It deals with resiliency building as a basis for preventing risky behaviors. Special variables such as leisure, social self-image, peer pressure are examined, and how these variables are moderated by other developmental contexts. The information in this book will provide a pragmatic tool for stakeholders in adolescent development work. Parents, teachers, social workers, rehabilitation workers, researchers and all who desire to generate strong developmental support for their emerging adult will find invaluable information in this book.

Treatment of Sex Offenders
76,39 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This rigorous survey offers a comprehensive rethinking of the assessment and treatment of sexual offenders for a bold challenge to practitioners. It critiques what we understand about offenders and the mechanisms of offending behaviors, and examines how this knowledge can best be used to reduce offending and relapses.   To this end, experts weigh the efficacy of common assessment methods and interventions, the value of prevention programs, and the validity of the DSM’s classifications of paraphilias. This strengths/weaknesses approach gives professional readers a guide to the current state as well as the future of research, practice, and policy affecting this complex and controversial field.   Included in the coverage:   Strengths of actuarial risk assessment. Risk formulation: the new frontier in risk assessment and management.  Dynamic risk factors and offender rehabilitation: a comparison of the Good Lives Model and the Risk-Need-Responsivity Model. The best intentions: flaws in sexually violent predator laws. Desistance from crime: toward an integrated conceptualization for intervention.From a victim/offender duality to a public health perspective.   A call to clear thought and accurate action, Treatment of Sex Offenders will generate discussion and interest among forensic psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, and social workers.

The Myth of Executive Functioning
58,84 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Executive functioning: we measure it, assess it, document its development in youth, track its decline in age and use it as a basis for diagnoses, treatment planning and-of course-theories. Could it be possible that science has spent decades chasing a cognitive phantom?Noting the lack of consensus concerning definition, component skills, and location within the brain, The Myth of Executive Functioning calls basic assumptions, prominent theories, commonly used test methods, and even the phrase executive functioning into question. The book's deceptively simple argument takes an evolutionary/neuroscience look at the cornerstones of cognitive organization, including memory, planning, decision-making and adaptation to novel circumstances. From there, gaps are identified between systems of cognitive control and those behaviors that are evaluated in neuropsychological testing-gaps that contribute to the disconnect between how science views mind and body, brain and behavior. The author's problem-solving metaphor places new emphasis on stimulus processing and on the relationship between movement and thought as he offers thought-provoking perspectives on: The limits of neuropsychological constructs.The components of adaptive thinking. The automatic aspects of problem solving. The left-brain/right-brain dichotomy. Problems with the domain approach to cognition. New paradigms for testing cognitive functioning. A controversial presentation with the potential to change clinical practice and training, The Myth of Executive Functioning will be read, debated and learned from by neuropsychologists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, cognitive neuroscientists and rehabilitation specialists.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

For people with severe/profound and multiple disabilities, managing the basic necessities of daily life often poses myriad challenges. Despite great odds, advances in assistive technology are making a difference in these individuals' lives. Advances in microswitches, voice outcome communication aids, and computer-based systems are creating new opportunities for living independently, improving basic life skills, and reducing problem behaviors among individuals with combined motor, sensory, and intellectual disabilities.This unique volume examines how education and rehabilitation can improve the lives of even those individuals most affected by severe/profound and multiple disabilities. Interventions currently in use and in experimental stages are surveyed in terms of how they work and their applicability to clients with various needs. In addition, it examines the characteristics of developmentally disabled populations and offers guidelines for choosing suitable technologies. It presents empirical evidence on the advances in improving interaction with caregivers, control of the home environment, handling self-care tasks, and other core skills.Assistive Technology examines interventions that are innovative, respectful of the dignity of clients, and practical for ongoing use, including:- Microswitches in habilitation programs.- Speech-generating devices for communication and social development.- Instructional technology for promoting academic, work, and leisure skills.- Assistive technology for promoting ambulation.- Orientation systems for promoting movement indoors.- Assistive technology for reducing problem behaviors.A state-of-the-art guide to a growing field, Assistive Technology is an invaluable resource for researchers, clinicians, graduate students as well as clinicians and allied professionals in developmental psychology, rehabilitation and rehabilitative medicine, learning and instruction, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, and educational technology.
