The Oxford Handbook of Infant, Child, and Adolescent Sleep and Behavior (Repost)

Amy R. Wolfson and Hawley E. Montgomery-Downs, “The Oxford Handbook of Infant, Child, and Adolescent Sleep and Behavior”
English | 2013 | ISBN: 0199873631 | 656 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Since the early 20th century, parenting books, pediatricians, and other health care providers have dispensed recommendations regarding children’s sleep that frequently involved behavioral and educational approaches.

In the last few decades, however, psychologists and other behavioral scientists and clinicians have amassed a critical body of research and clinical recommendations regarding developmental changes in sleep, sleep hygiene recommendations from infancy through adolescence, and behaviorally oriented treatment strategies for children and adolescents.

The Oxford Handbook of Infant, Child, and Adolescent Sleep and Behavior provides a comprehensive and state-of-the-art review of current research and clinical developments in normal and disordered sleep from infancy through emerging adulthood. The handbook comprises seven sections: sleep and development; factors influencing sleep; assessment of sleep and sleep problems; sleep challenges, problems, and disorders; consequences of insufficient sleep; sleep difficulties associated with developmental and behavioral risks; and prevention and intervention.

Written by international experts in psychology and related disciplines from diverse fields of study and clinical backgrounds, this handbook is a comprehensive resource that will meet the needs of clinicians, researchers, and graduate students with an interest in the multidisciplinary and emerging field of child and adolescent sleep and behavior.

Child and Adolescent Resilience Within Medical Contexts: Integrating Research and Practice

Child and Adolescent Resilience Within Medical Contexts: Integrating Research and Practice by Carey DeMichelis, Michel Ferrari
2016 | ISBN: 3319322214 | English | 345 pages | PDF | 9 MB

This book explores the social conditions that promote pediatric resilience. It presents resilience as a set of complex interpersonal, institutional, and political relationships that affect young patients’ ability to “do well” in the face of medical adversity. Chapters analyze the impact of chronic or disabling conditions on children’s development, while highlighting effective interventions that promote family well-being. This book integrates research from psychology, social work, medical anthropology, child life specialty, palliative care, public health, and nursing to examine a wide variety of family, cultural, and medical contexts. Practical strategies for supporting children and families are discussed, from meaningful assessment and interventions to social policy and advocacy.

Featured topics include:

Psychosocial factors influencing children with immune-related health conditions.

Resilience and pediatric cancer survivorship within a cultural context.

Promoting resilience in chronically ill children and their families during the transition to adolescence.

Creating a context for resilience in medical settings.

Promoting resilience through children’s health and social care policy.

Child and Adolescent Resilience Within Medical Contexts is a must-have resource for researchers, clinicians and other professionals, as well as graduate students in child and school psychology, child and adolescent psychiatry, social work, pediatrics, medical anthropology, nursing, educational psychology and policy.

Model Programs for Adolescent Sexual Health is a directory of the most promising and proven effective sexual education and prevention programs in the United States. The programs included in this volume were selected for their demonstrated positive impact on STI, pregnancy, and HIV/AIDS-related risk behaviors by a group of eminent HIV/AIDS expert scientists.

The programs also show effective prevention strategies aimed at a variety of ages (children, adolescents, college students); a variety of ethnic and cultural orientations (Latino, African-American, GLBT, and more); and for use in a variety of settings (schools, community settings, medical clinics, and more).

The following information is provided for each program listed in the directory:

-The Program Abstract summarizes the program, including its target clientele, site, approach, components, length, staffing requirements, program materials, and implementation costs

-The Program Rationale and History explains how the program was designed, and its underlying theoretical framework and assumptions

-Program Schedule explains the goals and activities of each program session

-Program Materials explains the necessary materials needed to implement the program (note that not all materials are included in this directory; however all can be ordered from Sociometrics)

-How to Implement the Program explains the ground rules and other necessary steps prior to implementation

-Evaluating the Program explains how the program was evaluated for its effectiveness

Adolescent Identities: A Collection of Readings

Deborah L. Browning, “Adolescent Identities: A Collection of Readings”
2007 | ISBN-10: 0881634611, 1138009938 | 396 pages | PDF | 3 MB

Adolescent Identities draws the reader into the inner world of the adolescent to examine the process of identity formation through the various lenses of history, anthropology, sociology, psychology, and psychoanalysis.

The volume reveals there is no single “normal” adolescent, nor is there a singular adolescent experience. Editor Deborah L. Browning illustrates that in the course of development, each individual must integrate one’s unique biologically-given constitution and temperament, personal life history, and the influence of the social and cultural milieu.

The book consists of six sections, arranged by concentric circles of influence, from the most exterior, identifiable, and potentially overt and conscious, to the most internal, private, and potentially unconscious concerns. Opening papers are drawn from sociology, European history, and cross-cultural anthropology, and address the question of whether and how adolescence can be considered a stage in development.

The second section explores how visible or potentially knowable minority statuses are experienced, and how these interact with individual identity processes. Moving closer to the adolescent’s interpersonal world, the third section presents papers about intimate relationships between adolescents and about the conscious preoccupations of adolescents when they are alone.

Extensive excerpts of Erikson’s most important contributions on identity formation and adolescence are offered in the fourth section. Papers on the most internal, private, and potentially unconscious conflicts comprise the fifth section. The book concludes with a section of papers on “failed solutions” to the challenge of adolescent identity consolidation: homelessness, drug abuse, eating disorders, and suicide.

Adolescent Identities provides mental health practitioners, teachers, and graduate students in both fields with a variety of perspectives on the internal experience of adolescents
