Whose Child Am I? - Unaccompanied, Undocumented Children in U.S. Immigration Custody (Paperback): Susan J. Terrio Whose Child Am I? - Unaccompanied, Undocumented Children in U.S. Immigration Custody (Paperback)

In 2014, the arrest and detention of thousands of desperate young migrants at the southwest border of the United States exposed the U.S. government's shadowy juvenile detention system, which had escaped public scrutiny for years. This book tells the story of six Central American and Mexican children who are driven from their homes by violence and deprivation, and who embark alone, risking their lives, on the perilous journey north. They suffer coercive arrests at the U.S. border, then land in detention, only to be caught up in the battle to obtain legal status. Whose Child Am I? looks inside a vast, labyrinthine system by documenting in detail the experiences of these youths, beginning with their arrest by immigration authorities, their subsequent placement in federal detention, followed by their appearance in deportation proceedings and release from custody, and, finally, ending with their struggle to build new lives in the United States. This book shows how the U.S. government got into the business of detaining children and what we can learn from this troubled history.

In New York's Central Park, some of the playgrounds constructed as part of the midcentury experimental ""playground revolution"" still remain. In Central Park's Adventure-Style Playgrounds, Marie Warsh tells the engrossing history of these playscapes built in the 1960s and 1970s, exploring their connections to the art, recreational design, urbanism, grassroots movements, and child-development theories of the period. She further details the Central Park Conservancy's efforts decades later to preserve and renew these playgrounds. So-called adventure-style playgrounds featured interconnected forms including pyramids, mounds, and steps, and basic materials such as water and sand, encouraging new levels of creativity and interaction. By the end of the 1970s, ten of Central Park's twenty-two existing playgrounds, formerly paved, sterile, standard-equipment-filled lots dating to the 1930s, had been transformed according to the new design ideals. With time, deterioration prompted concerns about safety, and much of the equipment was removed. However, community interest led the Central Park Conservancy to update and preserve the playgrounds that remained in the park. Building on successful aspects of the playgrounds, designers incorporated new technologies, materials, and equipment that reflect contemporary ideas about children's play and approaches to urban park management. They also developed strategies to better integrate them into the landscapes of the park. Today, Central Park's adventure-style playgrounds represent significant works of renewed modern landscape architecture as well as models for new thinking about playground design.

Youth in Regime Crisis - Comparative Perspectives from Russia to Weimar Germany (Hardcover): Felix Krawatzek Youth in Regime Crisis - Comparative Perspectives from Russia to Weimar Germany (Hardcover)
Felix Krawatzek
R1,702 Discovery Miles 17 020 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

How do political regimes respond to the challenges emanating from youth mobilization? This book seeks to understand regime resilience and breakdown by analysing the public meaning of youth, as well as the physical mobilization of young people. Mobilization carried by young people is a key component in understanding the stabilisation of the authoritarian regime structures in contemporary Russia, but the Russian experience makes only sense if placed in its broader historical context.Three comparative cases, the breakdown of the authoritarian Soviet Union, the breakdown of the democratic Weimar Republic, and the crisis of the democratic regime in France around 1968 highlight how regimes which lacked popular support have compensated for their insufficient legitimacy by trying to mobilize youth symbolically and politically. This book illustrates the symbolic significance of youth and its role in regime crisis by analysing a new data set of newspaper articles with a new method of discourse analysis. The combination of qualitative interpretation and quantitative network analysis enables a deeper and more systematic understanding of discursive structures about youth. Through this methodological innovation the book contributes to the way we define the categories of youth, generation, and crisis. It makes the case that our conceptualisation should reflect the way terms are being used - usages that can be captured in a systematic way with new methods of discourse analysis. Oxford Studies in Democratization is a series for scholars and students of comparative politics and related disciplines. Volumes concentrate on the comparative study of the democratization process that accompanied the decline and termination of the cold war. The geographical focus of the series is primarily Latin America, the Caribbean, Southern and Eastern Europe, and relevant experiences in Africa and Asia. The series editor is Laurence Whitehead, Senior Research Fellow, Nuffield College, University of Oxford.

Bouncing Back - Skills for Adaptation to Injury, Aging, Illness, and Pain (Paperback): Richard Wanlass Bouncing Back - Skills for Adaptation to Injury, Aging, Illness, and Pain (Paperback)
Richard Wanlass
R622 Discovery Miles 6 220 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Decline in our physical and mental abilities may be due to injury, illness, or chronic pain, or may simply be the results of normal aging. Sometimes changes in ability are gradual enough and minor enough that we adapt to them effortlessly. In other circumstances, however, these ability changes are more abrupt or more pronounced and pose a real challenge to our coping resources. In Bouncing Back: Skills for Adaptation to Injury, Aging, Illness and Pain, Richard Wanlass shares new research findings and observations of what he has learned in his thirty-five years of helping others adapt to these changes. Bouncing Back presents seven modules associated with changes in ability, including self-management, mood regulation, stress and anxiety management, anger and frustration management, relationship management, memory management, and pain management. Exercises follow almost every section to ensure concepts are understood and practiced. These developed tools provide new resilience skills and strategies to become better at change. They address the specific challenges of the broad and growing population of those learning to adapt to their loss of ability, and should be of aid for the public and for rehabilitation psychologists and neuropsychologists in their practice.

R942 Discovery Miles 9 420 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This text provides a step-by-step healing process for adults reared in dysfunctional families and who have unfinished business with their pasts. This process encourages individuals to tell the truth about abuse and neglect, embrace and feel the feelings, identify how present-day acting- out behaviour is related to inner dialogue, and apply the inner child method to adulthood issues.; Providing information on shame, codependency, abuse, neglect, birth order and boundaries, this workbook enables the individual to gain new understanding about their past and present. Using the activities described here, a person should first develop skills that help in healing childhood trauma, and consequently be given the means to address adulthood problems such as correcting self- defeating thought and behaviour patterns. The learning of self-nurturing, self-acceptance and health boundaries should then follow as a matter of course.; This text reintegrates the personality parts in a functional way through the use of exercises and visualisations, with the aim of enabling the individual to finish with the past and live successfully in the present. Examples of real-life inner child therapy assignments are also included.; A manual for therapists ISOSBN 1-55959-063-7 and a visualisation tape ISOSBN 1-55959-076-9 are also available.

About 30 percent of hospice patients report a "visitation" by someone who is not there, a phenomenon known in end-of-life care as a deathbed vision. These visions can be of dead friends or family members and occur on average three days before death. Strikingly, individuals from wildly diverse geographic regions and religions-from New York to Japan to Moldova to Papua New Guinea-report similar visions. Appearances of our dead during serious illness, crises, or bereavement are as old as the historical record. But in recent years, we have tended to explain them in either the fantastical terms of the supernatural or the reductive terms of neuroscience. This book is about how, when, and why our dead visit us. Allan Kellehear-a medical sociologist and expert on death, dying, and palliative care-has gathered data and conducted studies on these experiences across cultures. He also draws on the long-neglected work of early anthropologists who developed cultural explanations about why the dead visit. Deathbed visions conform to the rituals that underpin basic social relations and expectations-customs of greeting, support, exchange, gift-giving, and vigils-because the dead must communicate with us in a social language that we recognize. Kellehear emphasizes the personal consequences for those who encounter these visions, revealing their significance for how the dying person makes meaning of their experiences. Providing vital understanding of a widespread yet mysterious phenomenon, Visitors at the End of Life offers insights for palliative care professionals, researchers, and the bereaved.

The School Years (Paperback, 2nd New edition): John Coleman The School Years (Paperback, 2nd New edition)
John Coleman
R885 Discovery Miles 8 850 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

"The School Years" presents a lively collection of essays on key issues affecting young people in the school setting. This edition takes into account the major social changes which have occurred since 1979--changes which have had a direct impact on education and adolescents. The contributors, five of whom are new since the first edition, take an entirely new and up-to-date approach to current controversial issues.
Poverty and unemployment, the schooling of post-sixteen-year-olds, the problems of sexual and emotional abuse, the phenomenon of AIDS, issues of gender, race and equal opportunities, increasing divorce rates--all these have affected the lives of children and adolescents. In addition, in many countries education reforms have altered the organization and ethos of the school setting, inevitably creating greater challenges for the students. The contributors explore the fundamental questions about human development in the school, focusing on such aspects as the learning of gender roles, the origin of the concept of self, the role of the peer group, the development of morality, the causes of delinquency, and the relation between home and school.
"The School Years" covers the current controversial issues having to do with the socialization of young people and also provides a broad theoretical perspective on the subject. It will be an essential book for all those concerned with adolescence and education.

This open access book presents the results from the second cycle of the IEA International Civic and Citizenship Education Study (ICCS 2016). Using data from 24 countries in Asia, Europe and Latin America, the study investigates the ways in which young people are prepared to undertake their roles as citizens in a range of countries in the second decade of the 21st century. It also responds to the enduring and emerging challenges of educating young people in a world where contexts of democracy and civic participation continue to change. New developments of this kind include the increase in the use of social media by young people as a tool for civic engagement, growing concerns about global threats and sustainable development, as well as the role of schools in fostering peaceful ways of interaction between young people. Besides enabling the evaluation of a wide range of aspects of civic and citizenship education, including those related to recent developments in a number of countries, the inclusion of test and questionnaire material from the first cycle of the study in 2009 allows the results from ICCS 2016 to be used to examine changes in civic knowledge, attitudes and engagement over seven years.

This volume brings together current research on young people, (non)religion, and diversity, documenting the forms young people's stances may take and the social or spatial contexts in which these may be formed. The social contexts studied include the family, school, and faith communities. The spatial contexts include (sub)urban and rural geographies and places of worship and pilgrimage.Youth and (non)religion are an area of academic interest that has been gaining increasing attention, especially as it pertains to youthful expressions of (non)religion and identities. As research on religion and young people spans and expands across academic disciplines and across geographic areas, comparative approaches and perspectives, such as presented in this volume, offer important spaces for reflecting about the experience of religiosity among young people and the ways they are learning about, and developing, (non)religious identities. Building bridges geographically and methodologically, this volume provides an international perspective on religion and nonreligion among young people, offering a diversity of religious and nonreligious perspectives.

How do today's teenagers talk? What are the distinguishing features of their style of language, and what do they tell us about the English language more generally? Drawing on a huge corpus of examples collected over a fifteen-year period, Sali A. Tagliamonte undertakes a detailed study of adolescents' language and argues that it acts as a 'bellwether' for the future of the English language.

Highly topical and full of new insights, the book is essential reading for anyone interested in how teenagers talk.

In Everyday Desistance, Laura Abrams and Diane J. Terry examine the lives of young people who spent considerable time in and out of correctional institutions as adolescents. These formerly incarcerated youth often struggle with the onset of adult responsibilities at a much earlier age than their more privileged counterparts. In the context of urban Los Angeles, with a large-scale gang culture and diminished employment prospects, further involvement in crime appears almost inevitable. Yet, as Abrams and Terry point out, these formerly imprisoned youth are often quite resilient and can be successful at creating lives for themselves after months or even years of living in institutions run by the juvenile justice system. This book narrates the day-to-day experiences of these young men and women, focusing on their attempts to surmount the challenges of adulthood, resisting a return to criminal activity, and formulating long-term goals for a secure adult future.

Here is the result of over ten years of hands-on clinical experience by two experts wha have worked with the elderly. The authors explore the contributions of the creative arts therapies, specifically movement and drama therapy, to the individual and communal welfare of residents in nursing homes. Waiting at the Gate: Creativity and Hope in the Nursing Home eloquently demonstrates how movement and drama therapy facilitate the preservation of life, of meaning, and of hope by seeking the beautiful and playful aspects of the self, and valuing humor, flexibility, and spontaneity in relationships with others. The authors show how these values challenge the "waiting to die" phenomenon of the custodial nursing home and offer lively alternatives to the resident in the new institution of the 1990s.
