Encyclopedia of Domestic Violence

The Encyclopedia of Domestic Violence is a modern reference from the leading international scholars in domestic violence research. This ground-breaking project has created the first ever publication of an encyclopedia of domestic violence. The primary goal of the Encyclopedia is to provide information on a variety of traditional, as well as breakthrough, issues in this complex phenomenon. The coverage of the Encyclopedia is broad and diverse, encompassing the entire life span from infancy to old age. The entries include the traditional research areas, such as battered women, child abuse and dating violence. However, this Encyclopedia is unique in that it includes many under-studied areas of domestic violence, such as ritual abuse-torture within families, domestic violence against women with disabilities, pseudo-family violence and domestic violence within military families. It is also unique in that it examines cross-cultural perspectives of domestic violence. One of the key special features in this Encyclopedia is the cross-reference section at the end of each entry. This allows the reader the ability to continue their research of a particular topic. This book will be an easy-to-read reference guide on a host of topics, which are alphabetically arranged. Precautions have been taken to ensure that the Encyclopedia is not politically slanted; rather, it is hoped that it will serve as a basic guide to better understanding the myriad issues surrounding this labyrinthine topic. Topics covered include: Victims of Domestic Violence; Theoretical Perspectives and Correlates to Domestic Violence; Cross-Cultural Perspectives and Religious Perspectives; Understudied Areas within Domestic Violence Research; Domestic Violence and the Law; and Child Abuse and Elder Abuse.

It has often been said: Give a man a fish, and he has food for a day. Teach him to fish, and he can provide for himself over a lifetime. Raising a Responsible Child explains the phenomenon of the "overindulgent parent"--who helps and protects too much -- and the "underdeveloped child"--who never really learns to stand on his or her own feet. Today many parents are especially prone to shower their children with love and attention and attempt to minimize stress by doing for them. In the scurry of modern life, parents often can't resist giving in to children's demands or solving their problems just to keep the peace. While this is basically a loving approach, it does not teach children how to be responsible and independent. Parents learn the hard way that their overindulgence does more harm than good: their children will only come to them with more demands and act helpless in the face of new problems. If you find yourself entrenched in this pattern, you can change by using a system of consistent, straight forward, and logical rules every day. You can teach your children to take responsibility for their actions and earn their privileges -- and you will find, perhaps to your surprise, that they are willing and ready to do so. Some of the issues this book will help you to deal with are: -- The whiny and overly demanding preschooler -- The small child who throws tantrums in public to get his way -- The older child who is inconsiderate of family members -- The teenager who is constantly late for school -- The young adult, who can't get her life together and mooches off her parents indefinitely. Many parents discover that the tried-and-true methods detailed here not only help their children handle emotions in a more mature and constructive manner but also result in higher self-esteem and a happier outlook on life.

DISCIPLINE WITHOUT TEARS: How To Reduce Conflict and Establish Cooperation in the Classroom Discipline without Tears is a modern classic within the teaching profession. The original edition was written by Pearl Cassel and Rudolf Dreikurs. First published in 1971 by arrangement with the Alfred Adler Institute, it has been a teacher's best friend and became an international bestseller with translations into French, Italian, Greek, German, Dutch, Japanese and Chinese. The focus of the book is to show the elementary school teacher how to manage a classroom of children effectively by understanding the nature of their behavior. The book is prescriptive, and challenges teachers to analyze their teaching style and become more effective at discipline in the classroom. With the co-authorship of Dr. Eva Dreikurs Ferguson, the book has been updated and revised to reflect current trends in education. Schools have put more emphasis on teachers knowing how to resolve issues of discipline within their classroom, and teachers will appreciate the clear and concise presentation of material that will lead to more effective learning time and a more pleasant teaching environment.
