The Silent Child describes a way of understanding and communicating with children who are not speaking, but rather using their bodies and somatic symptoms to express states of mind. Jeanne Magagna has worked for 45 years trying to find ways of helping these children, varying in age and symptoms. Using infant observation methods of understanding primitive states of mind expressed through gestures of eyes, hands, body posture, she has worked in in-patient or out-patient settings with contributors: a group of psychiatrists, psychologists, family and child psychotherapists, physiotherapists, nurses, therapeutic care workers, teachers, parents' groups and work discussion seminar members in out-patient and in-patient settings. In their chapters, the professionals and a parent show how they use their observation, empathy and countertransference experiences to promote understanding in the silent child and his/her parents and siblings. This book is particularly important for mental health professionals, teachers and parents who are encountering "a child communicating without words". It will assist them in being curious and nurturing rather than paralyzed by the experience of having to think without the child's verbal response. Contributors: Jeanne Magagna, Nancy L. Bakalar, Melanie Bladen, Sarah Dixon, Alex Dubinsky, Jo Guiney, Bryan Lask, Natalie Le Clézio, Tara Pepper-Goldsmith, Cynthia Rousso, Ankur Sharma, Michelle Scott, Naomi Simon, David Wood, Charlotte Wormald.

Unfortunately, Hector Woollie didn't work for Child Protective Services . . . and the children he rescued, he murdered. Once upon a time, Leslie had a happy marriage, a happy son, and a happy life.

When Ian and his young stepsister disappear, Roger insists the boy kidnapped the girl, while Leslie thinks Ian might have run away. She prays that her son is near and will come home soon. Ian is near-right next door, just on the other side of a shared wall. Ian can hear his parents fighting and his mother's desperate weeping, but he can't call for help. Hector Woollie has him and his stepsister, and if either child makes a peep, the madman will slit both their throats.

"Sometimes our gut instincts are not just a feeling that something is not right. It can be an actual warning sign to beware of consequences that may follow a certain decision." Being raised in a dysfunctional home lead Jean down a path of many mistakes. Her life as a child was filled with secrets, nightmares, and fears. She never received the love and acceptance as a child that she always craved. When she found love after she moved from Houston to Louisiana, she had to leave it behind and move back to Houston. The move was caused by another dysfunctional situation she found herself in. Life in Houston for this small town girl was filled with one mistake and regret after another. She was too trusting. Without the proper guidance for her to mature into a well rounded adult, her lack of maturity carried into her young adulthood. Jean learned many of life's lessons through the mistakes she made. Not trusting her gut instincts was one of the things she struggled with through so much of her life. She finally broke away from the co-dependent relationships she always settled for. With God's help Jean began to believe in herself, and saw the positive changes in her life she always hoped for. About the Author Jean Stevens was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. Based on experiences in her childhood and her adolescence, she was on a path that would lead to many mistakes and regrets in her adult life. After she truly gave her life to Christ it began to change. She rediscovered the passion for poetry she once had as a teenager. She was encouraged to tell her story, and to place the poems that she had written into her book. The poems she wrote were the beginning of the process to finally forgive those who were responsible for the hurt and pain she carried around for so many years. It was also the start of a cleansing process to leave all the mistakes, regrets, and hatred behind. Those were things she had to let go of to fulfill her purpose in life. Writing this book was part of her purpose, to let others know that you can change your life if you really want to. You may not be able to do it on your own, but the good news is you don't have to. God placed dreams within her that she couldn't let go of. One of those dreams was to become a writer. Although she felt that her lack of education would cause the dream to not happen, she depended on God to bring it to pass. Ms. Stevens currently resides in Houston, Texas.

‘As I studied the photograph more closely, I homed in on the boy’s expression. He looked whitewashed with fear.’ Vienna, 1938: Something’s amiss at the home of young Annabel Albrecht and it’s got nothing to do with the Nazis. First, her favourite maid Eva disappears, then her friend Oskar. What’s worse, her mother is taken away, leaving Annabel to fend for herself. London 2004: Max receives a letter from his dying and estranged mother, Annabel, who requests his help. Following their last argument he has no desire to contact her. But his curiosity is piqued by the black and white photograph she had enclosed: a disturbing image of his mother and forgotten childhood friend, Oskar Edelstein, taken in Vienna, 1938. Stranger still are the words, ‘you knew’, scrawled on its reverse. The photograph and the message, are, his mother writes, part of the reason for her distance towards him. She wants him to find Oskar... The photograph haunts him following his mother’s death – and there’s something about her old house in Vienna that’s not quite right. As much as Max wants to stay away, he can’t, as he uncovers his mother’s long-buried past and the secrets preserved by Annabel’s missing friends. But as Max is to discover, some children can never be completely silenced. Is he haunted by ghosts or by guilt, and will he ever escape? The Silent Children is a gripping tale of tragedy and revenge, a modern-day ghost story that will stay with you long after you turn the final page.

The early years of life are fast gaining prominence around the world. It is well documented that investment in early childhood results in exceptionally high returns in multiple arenas; greater than those resulting from enterprise focused on later periods in people’s lives. This book presents current early years research that reflects the transdisciplinary nature of childhood. The first in the Children and Childhoods series, this volume examines multiple perspectives, places and practices that constitute early childhood. The many facets of how children and childhoods are seen, where they are enacted and how they are played out are explained through explorations of playgrounds, hospitals, museums, child care centres and other locations. Similarly diverse are the methodologies that underpin these investigations. Children, practitioners, families and researchers all contribute to this cornucopia of children and childhoods.

Barely a day goes by without news of the latest public health threat from the American media. Some of us are told we live in a "cancer cluster"-an area with a disproportionate number of cancer deaths. During the summer months, those who live in or near urban areas are bombarded with daily smog measurements and air pollution alerts. City water supplies are frequently called health hazards. At times, it seems as though virtually everything we eat and drink is denounced as bad for us by some "public health expert." Our cars burn too much gasoline; we own too many firearms; we are too fat; some of us are too skinny. Americans today are living longer than they ever have before. Why the almost daily announcements of new public health threats and proclamations of impending crises? Bennett and DiLorenzo address this question and others here. They begin by examining the large public health bureaucracy, its preoccupation with expanding governmental programs, and its concern with political issues that too often have little to do with improving public health. Then they trace the evolution of the American public health movement from its founding after the Civil War to the 1950s. They describe the transformation of public health's focus from the eradication of disease to social policy as a by-product of the 1960s. Bennett and DiLorenzo catalogue the "radicalization" of the public health movement by discussing its numerous political initiatives. They include case studies of the politicization of the public health movement in America. The authors reveal various methods of statistical manipulation that certain public health researchers use to "cook the data" in order to achieve politically correct results. A final chapter discusses the implications of the transformation of public health from pathology to politics. This vigorously argued analysis sees the public health movement as claiming expertise on virtually every social issue, from poverty to human rights. Students of public policy and public health officials, along with readers interested in public health issues, will find this absorbing reading.
