Child psychiatrist Bruce Perry shares the stories of trauma and transformation he has encountered in his line of work, describing what happens to a child's brain when exposed to extreme stress and how innovative treatments are helping those children heal and become healthy adults. He has treated children faced with unimaginable horror: genocide survivors, witnesses, children raised in closets and cages, and victims of family violence. Perry says severe and occasionally even not-so-severe emotional or physical abuse can chemically alter early brain development, resulting later in the inability to make appropriate, socially sanctioned behavioral decisions. Perry doesn't promote what he calls the "abuse excuse"for antisocial or criminal behavior; rather, he makes a powerful case for early intervention for disruptive children to prevent adult sociopathy.

B 96717B 96717 Brain-Based Parenting: The Neuroscience of Caregiving for Healthy Attachment
Grade Lvl: T Author: Hughes, Daniel A / Baylin, Jonathan
Length: 252 Copyright: 2012

A guide for parents on how to change their brain in order to improve their parenting skills, ultimately helping their children's brains as well. In this exploration of the brain mechanisms behind healthy caregiving, attachment specialist Daniel A. Hughes and veteran clinical psychologist Jonathan Baylin guide readers through the intricate web of neuronal processes, hormones, and chemicals that drive―and sometimes thwart―our caregiving impulses, uncovering the mysteries of the parental brain. The biggest challenge to parents, Hughes and Baylin explain, is learning how to regulate emotions that arise―feeling them deeply and honestly while staying grounded and aware enough to preserve the parent–child relationship. Stress, which can lead to “blocked” or dysfunctional care, can impede the brain’s inherent caregiving processes and negatively impact a person's ability to do this. Learning to be a “good parent” is contingent upon learning how to manage this stress, understand its brain-based cues, and respond in a way that will set the brain back on track. To this end, Hughes and Baylin define five major “systems” of caregiving as they’re linked to the brain, explaining how they operate when parenting is strong and what happens when good parenting is compromised or “blocked.” Emotions in children.

Shares stories from people who have recognized and overcome their adverse experiences, shows why some children are more immune to stress than others, and explains why women are at particular risk. Your biography becomes your biology. The emotional trauma children suffer not only shapes their emotional lives as adults, but it also affects their physical health, longevity, and overall wellbeing. Scientists now know on a bio-chemical level exactly how parents’ chronic fights, divorce, death in the family, being bullied or hazed, and growing up with a hypercritical, alcoholic, or mentally ill parent can leave permanent, physical “fingerprints” on the brains. When children encounter sudden or chronic adversity, stress hormones cause powerful changes in the body, altering the body’s chemistry. The developing immune system and brain react to this chemical barrage by permanently resetting children’s stress response to “high,” which in turn can have a devastating impact on their mental and physical health as they grow up.

B 95906B 95906 File Factor: Filing Away Disappointment
Grade Lvl: T Author: Dana, Terese / Meisel, Bradford
Length: 56 Copyright: 2005

Gives children an innovative way to work through and release their disappointment through guided categorization. This visual support strategy prompts children to organize information into conceptual groupings to help them understand the reason behind the emotions they are feeling. It provides a structure to analyze the root of their disappointment, file it away, review the situation with an adult, and focus on the positive by identifying situations that worked out as they had hoped. Many children with emotional and behavioral difficulties need strategies to help them learn how to regulate their responses when faced with disappointment. Helping children regulate their emotions is an important goal. Children who can't bounce back from disappointment tend to externalize blame and can become vulnerable to rage and depression. Parents, teachers and therapists can incorporate this tool to help children in elementary and middle school deal with everyday disappointments. The File Factor has been used to help improve the coping skills of children diagnosed with high functioning autism, aspergers, PDD, NLD and ADD as well as children who are easily frustrated, depressed, anxious, shut down, externalize blame or have developed a sense of being a victim.

Shows how to select students and jobs, collect data, design a system of rewards & consequences if needed, teach job skills, and maintain a successful job experience.

Length: 233 Copyright: 2019

"For students to be successful in school, they first have to be in school." With that simple statement, Jessica Sprick and Randy Sprick launch a compelling case for prioritizing student attendance. This comprehensive guide provides school and district-level administrators and teams with the background information, strategies, and tools needed to implement a multi-tiered approach to improving attendance and preventing chronic absence. The authors use the results of their work in schools throughout the United States to dispel the myth that educators have little control over student attendance and provide success stories from elementary and secondary schools that have reversed longstanding patterns of absenteeism. Citing extensive research, Sprick and Sprick share details about the shocking prevalence of chronic absence in U.S. schools and its effects on students, teachers, families, and the school community. They explain how to replace punitive approaches to absenteeism with effective methods that begin with universal supports and continue through Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions for students with more persistent problems. Specifically, they explain how to: •Build an effective school team to address absenteeism. •Create systems to collect accurate data and set priorities. •Develop an attendance initiative that generates student enthusiasm as well as staff, parent, and community support. •Design and implement strategies that are tailored to specific schoolwide concerns and demographics that reach all students.

B 97073B 97073 Talking about Trauma & Change: A Connecting Paradigms' Supplement
Grade Lvl: T Author: Bennett, Matthew S
Length: 168 Copyright: 2018

A follow up to Connecting Paradigms (B 97074), Talking about Trauma & Change: A Connecting Paradigms’ Supplement provides analogies and models to help people understand the complexity of changing behavior and healing psychological trauma. Talking about Trauma & Change presents the approaches that Matthew Bennett has used in his training and clinical work in a format that is easily integrated into individual or group conversations. Change and trauma are sensitive and complex topics; the use of these straightforward analogies and simple models helps people see their past, the present situation, and their future in a whole new positive light. This supplement has four parts. Part 1: Setting the Stage provides a brief overview of Connecting Paradigms: A Trauma-Informed & Neurobiological Framework for Motivational Interviewing Implementation. The first chapter serves as a quick refresher of the concepts presented in Connecting Paradigms. The second chapter explains the best way to implement the material in this book. Part 2: Talking about Trauma explores different analogies and models to help clients learn and reflect on their lives and traumatic pasts. There is incredible power in helping someone understand how their traumatic past is affecting them in the present. This material is liberating in that it helps people to realize many of their struggles are due to past trauma and not something inherently wrong with them as a person. In addition, the knowledge motivates many to engage in mental-health services in order to heal from their past suffering and get their children help as well. Analogies and models are effective in teaching about trauma in a safe way that minimizes the chance of retraumatization. Part 3: Talking about Change, provides several analogies and models that complement the Motivational Interviewing (MI) approaches presented in Connecting Paradigms. The focus of Part 3 is on how to help clients understand the change process and the neurobiological adjustments needed to support behavioral change. The analogies and models are a great way to build mindsight and elicit change talk. Part 4: The Hero’s Journey, presents a model that brings together critical aspects of the healing and change process. This model helps people identify where they are in their journeys to healing and growth and what they need to focus on to successfully take their next step. The hero’s journey provides many great opportunities for us to help people gain self-understanding while eliciting change talk about living the life they desire. Professional nonfiction.
