Concise and easy-to-understand, this book provides an introduction to what attachment means and how to recognise attachment disorder in children. Colby Pearce explains how complex problems in childhood may stem from the parent-child relationship during a child's early formative years, and later from the child's engagement with the broader social world. The book explores the mind-set of difficult and traumatised children and the motivations behind their complex tendencies and behaviours. It goes on to offer a comprehensive set of tried-and-tested practical strategies that can be used with children affected by an attachment disorder. This second edition has been updated to include the new DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for Reactive Attachment Disorder and an increased number of illustrative case vignettes. This is a perfect introduction to the subject for parents, carers and practitioners in supportive roles caring for children.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Assessing prospective adoptive parents, foster carers, kinship carers and special guardians is an extremely complex task, and one that happens within a pressurized time frame. Currently, assessments draw substantially on interviews, which can generate a lot of information but little analysis to enable professionals to establish a meaningful understanding of parenting capacity. Children with histories of trauma, loss and hurt need to join families in which parents exhibit the ability to be good at relationships, are able to manage their own stress and bond with the child in their care. Now fully updated and expanded to cover the assessment of kinship carers and special guardians, this book combines the latest findings from neuroscience with research on what makes good assessments and provides guidance and tools for making thorough, analytical and effective assessments. With contributions from leading experts including Dan Hughes, Jonathan Baylin, Kim Golding and Julie Selwyn, it will provide you with the information you need to ensure the best possible chance of placement success.

For preschool children with emotional difficulties arising from difficulties in attachment, standard observations used in early years settings are not always helpful in identifying their problems and providing guidance on how they can be helped. Combining an accessible introduction to attachment and child development with a child observation tool for identifying behaviour, and the emotional needs underlying this behaviour, this book enables early years professionals to identify problems and provide appropriate support. 'Case study' boxes help to illustrate typical patterns of attachment, and all aspects of behaviour are covered including play, interaction with peers, neediness, and aggression. A range of handouts and activities is included, and guidance provided on how to work within professional boundaries. Written in clear, concise language, Observing Children with Attachment Difficulties in Preschool aims to equip the reader with the knowledge and skills needed to identify and support children's emotional and social difficulties. Suitable for use with children aged 2 – 5, this guide will be an invaluable resource for early years professionals, as well as for use by clinicians, teachers and learning support staff.

Für alle gängigen Therapieformen stellt die Einbeziehung therapeutischer Geschichten und Metaphern eine Bereicherung dar. Denn sie wirken direkt auf das Unbewusste. Das Handbuch bietet für alle häufig vorkommenden Störungen Texte an, die direkt übernommen oder auch abgewandelt werden können, und es erklärt, wie man sie sinnvoll einsetzt. Geschichten und Metaphern wirken auf die Seele, denn sie sprechen unbewusste Instanzen in uns an. Die Lösung eines Problems wird dem Unbewussten überlassen, dessen Suchmöglichkeiten nachweislich reicher sind als das rationale Denken. Das »Handbuch des therapeutischen Erzählens« ist die erste umfassende Veröffentlichung zu dieser kreativen Interventionsform. Sie bietet zweierlei: - eine Fülle vom Autor selbst erdachter therapeutischer Metaphern und Geschichten, aufgeschlüsselt nach Problemstellungen und therapeutischen Zielen. Sie lassen sich wie Bausteine in die eigene therapeutische Arbeit integrieren. - einen Methodenteil, der z. B. Aufschluss darüber gibt, wie Suggestion funktioniert, welche Erzähltypen wie wirken und wie Geschichten dialogisch entwickelt werden. Psychotherapeutinnen und Psychotherapeuten aller Schulen und in Beratung Tätige erwartet ein Fundus an Texten, die nach individuellem Bedarf abgewandelt werden können und die therapeutische Arbeit elegant ergänzen.
