    The Bully Blockers by Celeste Shally. Illustrated by David Harrington

    Awaken Specialty Press, 2009. Softcover. New. What would you do if you saw someone being bullied? Would you pretend it didn't happen? Would you walk away and hope that someone else will take care of it? Would you care? According to research, children with autism are more likely to be bullied than their peers. They make easy targets because they are socially awkward and often times unaware they are being bullied. For the child with autism, there are severe emotional, and sometimes physical, consequences to being repeatedly bullied. The Bully Blockers tells the story of a boy who witnesses a classmate with autism being bullied and how he decides to get involved. This hard-to-find book shows that one child can make a difference when he has the courage to stand up for his classmate with autism. Celeste Shally lives in Northwest Arkansas with her husband and two sons. Her oldest son was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder at the age of three. She holds a bachelors degree in Elementary Education from Northern Illinois University. As a parent and former educator, Celeste writes in response to her need for more children's books that help typical children understand and relate to their peers with autism. Foreword by Allison Singer of Autism Speaks. Ages 4-8; 32 pages. 2009

Practical methods give you potent tools and strategies to open a channel of real, effective, communication. We have seen powerful results happen with children, parents, and teachersÑall because everyone involved learned how to "get on the same page." Together, on the same page, we can begin to understand each other. We can then respond appropriately to meet your child's needs. It begins with listening. And since we are the adults "on the page," we must learn to communicate at our child's level. Anyone can learn these simple techniques, and have a significant influence on their child's behavior and success. Just open the book and begin the journey. On the Same Page! is a workbookÑa curriculum for livingÑand its lessons will last. It is over 1 pages of concepts, lessons, and activities that you use with your child, and progress at your own rate. Teachers can use it as a lesson plan, very effectively Ñ as we do. Parents can read the book with their children and use it as a teaching guide Ñ many children make it their own and read it like a bedtime story. Joleen Higgin is a speech and language therapist who has been working in the public school system for over 3 years. Laurie Shea is a paraprofessional who has been working in the public school system for the past 6 years. "This lovely, visually-based, practical book provides a range of lessons to help our students with social learning challenges explore abstract concepts in concrete ways.

    Human Nature in the Light of Psychopathology by Kurt Goldstein

    Schocken Books, 1963. Softcover. Good. Moderate shelf wear, age toning and soiling to covers, binding tight, pages lightly age-toned, clean and free of marks. Experiences of the last decades in Europe have awakened great doubt regarding the character of human nature. Qualities have been proclaimed as the highest virtues which in their very essence stand in complete opposition to those social and moral ideas that have formed the basis of Western culture for thousands of years. The success of these new ideas has so shaken the old faith that the nature of man has become problematic at its very core. The problem of human nature came within Kurt Goldstein’s scope as a physician through the task he was confronted with during the last world war: to seek ways of adjustment for a great number of people with disturbances of personality due to brain lesions. He realized that that was possible only by a thorough analysis of human nature in general. His examination of this fundamental problem, although based upon facts drawn from his experience as a psychiatrist, will be of deep interest to many other readers than physicians and psychologists, in fact to all thoughtful citizens who are groping toward a valid social philosophy for these days.

    Hope for the Violently Aggressive Child (Latest edition) by Ralph Ankenman

    Future Horizons, Inc, 2014. Softcover. New. Severe meltdowns are often mistakenly considered to be a direct component of other diagnoses such as PDD or Autism, or even misdiagnosed entirely. Standard treatment options often do not fully resolve these behaviors--while causing unnecessary side effects. "Once I started reading this book, I could not put it down! Every clinic and school should have this as a reference." -- Temple Grandin, PhD Dr. Ralph Ankenman presents new diagnoses and treatment options for children who have severe disruptive meltdowns at home or school. Referred to as immature adrenaline systems overreactivity (IASO), this approach is based on the relationship between aggression and the body's adrenaline systems. Therefore IASO does not require psychotropic drugs. Instead, IASO reduces or eliminates psychotropic drugs from a child's regimen. IASO stops episodes of violence and aggression in patients with autism, with bipolar disorder, with developmental disabilities and also many with no mental health diagnosis at all. Standard psychotropic drugs often do not fully resolve these behaviors and lead to unnecessary side effects. A companion website of the same name as this book enables caregivers and parents to discuss and share tips about this new approach. Dr. Ralph Ankenman has treated hundreds of patients with violent and aggressive behavior problems. Over time, he discovered that adrenaline-acting medicines provided many patients with safer and more effective treatment than the commonly prescribed psychiatric medicines. Dr. Ankenman spent over twenty years as Director of the Special Psychiatric Unit at Madison County Hospital in London, Ohio, and he has consulted extensively for mental health clinics, state developmental centers, and community group homes. After closing his practice in 2008, he has dedicated his time to writing and speaking about the therapeutic potential of adrenaline-acting medications. 150 pages. 2014

Some say it's materialistic, others call it scientific and still others insist it's mystical. It is all of these—and none.
