Children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) have emerged as a major phenomenon within the education and health care systems. Prenatal exposure to alcohol is known to result in a range of birth anomalies for infants and children. Children with FASD experience a range of developmental delays, which limit their participation and progress in a range of educational and social settings. Written by one of the UK's top experts in the field, this practical and informative resource explores the complex and compounding socio-cultural, historical and political factors surrounding maternal drug and alcohol use, and the implications this has for young children's learning and development across the childhood workforce. The book provides a framework of knowledge and understanding as a tool to develop inclusive practice. Developing Inclusive Practice for Young Children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders is an essential read for all early childhood professionals and practitioners. It offers a range of pedagogical strategies to improve children's long-term developmental trajectory, whilst supporting children and families in a sensitive, respectful manner.
The book that revolutionized the psychotherapist's approach to treating alcoholism<br> <br> When it was first published in 1985, Treating the Alcoholic challenged traditional psychotherapeutic approaches to alcoholism treatment. Since then, thousands of mental health professionals, using Dr. Stephanie Brown's treatment model, have found renewed faith in their ability to help alcoholic patients achieve lasting recovery.<br> <br> The book begins by studying the experiences of people who have stopped drinking and provides firsthand descriptions of the inevitable emotional, physical, and psychological problems that follow. Dr. Brown then offers a model for treatment that replaces the notion of abstinence as a static state with a dynamic, process-oriented "continuum of recovery" principle. She translates the twelve steps of Alcoholics Anonymous into psychological terms, taking particular care to explain the crucial notion of "loss of control." Perhaps the most surprising element of Dr. Brown's model is her emphasis on the triadic therapeutic relationship in which therapist, patient, and AA counselor work in partnership to ensure ongoing recovery.<br> <br> Once considered a radical departure from the conventional wisdom, Treating the Alcoholic offers a now-proven approach that enables psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, alcoholism counselors, and other mental health professionals to understand the dynamics of alcoholism and make profound contributions to the recovery process.
