Dr. Stuart Shanker revolutioniert die Erziehung unserer Kinder: Seine Methode der Selbstregulierung ermöglicht Kindern aller Altersstufen – und deren Eltern – zu einer besonderen inneren Balance zu finden, einem Zustand von ruhiger Wachsamkeit. Von klein an wirken zu viele Reize auf sie ein, spätestens ab dem Schulalter sind sie einem oft unvorstellbaren Stress ausgesetzt. Das macht unruhig, unkonzentriert, aggressiv und hyperaktiv. Erwachsene reagieren meist mit einer Forderung nach Gehorsam – was leider nur dazu führt, dass der Druck weiter erhöht wird. Dr. Shankers Methode geht an die Wurzeln und bietet eine wirkliche Lösung. So kann Kindern – vom Kleinkind bis zum Teenager – geholfen werden. Jedem einzelnen.

`This book encourages all those working with children with speech, language and communication needs to develop their creativity within a model of child-centred reflective practice, acknowledging that our interaction with children has an effect at many different levels. Therapists, teachers, teaching assistants and parents will find a wealth of practical suggestions and a solid foundation of research within these pages.' Mary Hampton, Chair, Association of Speech and Language Therapists in Independent Practice (ASLTIP), UK For many children, the act of communication that most of us take for granted can be a struggle, and communicating with others can become something to fear rather than enjoy. This creative book is full of fun and imaginative ideas to help children aged 4-11 with a speech or language delay or disorder to develop their communication abilities and skills. It is packed with activities and games tailored to help develop abilities such as effective listening, imagination and perseverance, and to build specific skills such as formulation of questions, categorising, taking turns and understanding non-verbal communication. Tips for personalising and shaping the activities are provided. A comprehensive theory section also covers how play can be a therapeutic tool for enhancing communication, and how to structure the emotional environment. Practical advice on working with groups and individuals and in different settings is also given. This activity book is an invaluable resource not only for speech and language therapists and students, but also for parents, teachers, carers and other support staff who are looking for creative ways to promote speech and language development.

Anger is a feeling experienced by children and grown-ups alike. Whenever something or somebody meddles with a person in a contrary way, it can make them get to be furious. Displeasure is a typical reaction to such a circumstance. However Anger can be classed as a gentle or extraordinary disturbance. Contingent upon the individual, the condition and their feelings, indignation may bring about a man to end up incensed or even irate. Individuals who get to be furious act in various ways. Some lash out or turn out to be to a great degree guarded. Other individuals tend to remain quiet about their indignation, restraining their negative feelings and hurt. While some individuals get to be heedless and even oppressive. Resentment can be an appallingly destructive feeling in the event that it isn't controlled.

Eine Reise ins Herz der amerikanischen Rechten

In vielen westlichen Ländern sind rechte, nationalistische Bewegungen auf dem Vormarsch. Wie ist es dazu gekommen? Arlie Russell Hochschild reiste ins Herz der amerikanischen Rechten, nach Louisiana, und suchte fünf Jahre lang das Gespräch mit ihren Landsleuten. Sie traf auf frustrierte Menschen, deren "Amerikanischer Traum" geplatzt ist; Menschen, die sich abgehängt fühlen, den Staat hassen und sich der rechtspopulistischen Tea-Party-Bewegung angeschlossen haben. Hochschild zeigt eine beunruhigende Entwicklung auf, die auch in Europa längst begonnen hat. Hochschilds Reportage ist nicht nur eine erhellende Deutung einer gespaltenen Gesellschaft, sondern auch ein bewegendes Stück Literatur. "Jeder, der das moderne Amerika verstehen möchte, sollte dieses faszinierende Buch lesen." Robert Reich "Ein kluges, respektvolles und fesselndes Buch." New York Times Book Review "Eine anrührende, warmherzige und souverän geschriebene, ungemein gut lesbare teilnehmende Beobachtung. ... Wer ihr Buch liest, versteht die Wähler Trumps, weil sie auf Augenhöhe mit ihnen und nicht über sie spricht." FAZ
