The big difference between grammar and rocket science is that most of us can get by just fine in life without knowing anything about rocket science. Not so grammar. "Do I say 'him and me, ' or 'he and I'?" is a major question on many writers' minds. "How about who and whom? or then and than? you're and your?" These valid questions send many people to their keyboard, seeking online solutions because, up to now, there hasn't been an easy-to-read, encouraging, actually fun resource to answer people's basic questions about writing and grammar. Carolyn Henderson's "Grammar Despair" is such a resource, providing, as she promises, quick simple solutions to a variety of common grammar and writing questions, including that "He and I" and "Him and Me" one. Short, fast-paced, informative and entertaining, Grammar Despair can be read in one sitting, then set on the desk (or in the e-reader) for repeated referral. Carolyn's clear, concise explanations to common problems avoids what she calls Grammar Speak, providing solutions in everyday language, without the expectation that the reader be an expert in grammar. Grammar Despair begins with Words That Sound the Same but Are Used Differently -- It's and Its; Their/There/They're; Will and Well; Two/To/Too, and more; then progresses to some basics on Writing Mechanics: varying sentence structure so that you don't sound like a robot or a six-year-old child; formal versus informal writing and when to use each; capitalization essentials. And, because more and more people are blogging and writing online, Carolyn touches upon Things We Didn't Worry About 150 Years ago like Search Engine Optimization and how it can affect your writing; overuse of meaningless words, like "intention;" and the gender question -- do you use "he" when you don't know the gender of the person you're talking about, or he/she, or they? Writers of all caliber and experience levels enjoy Grammar Despair as a user friendly resource to some of the most common writing issues in the English language.

Transforming Despair to Hope: Reflections on the Psychotherapeutic Process with Severely Neglected and Traumatised Children offers a thorough overview of the problems and rewards of trying to help severely neglected and traumatised children. Drawing on over 40 cyears of clinical experience, Monica Lanyado provides a historical and social perspective on this challenging population, as well as helpful theoretical frameworks and thoughtful support for all professionals and clinicians working with these children. This book brings together selected past writings and new chapters from Lanyando. In it she describes the consequences of severe neglect and trauma on a child’s emotional development, and then goes on to examine what it is that brings about positive change. By using vivid clinical examples of therapeutic practice with these children, she elucidates the difficulties associated with this population, as well as for those who care for them in families and in residential settings. Transforming Despair to Hope is a valuable resource for child and adolescent mental health professionals and trainee clinicians, as well as those in related fields working with children in need.

How do experiences of hope and despair impact upon our capacity to meet life's challenges in narrative and family therapy? Clients' experiences of hope and despair can be complex, reflecting individual and family histories, current patterns and dynamics, the stresses of everyday life, and the social contexts of families' lives. This book analyses how therapists meet and engage with these dichotomous aspects of human experience. The editors place the themes of hope and despair at the centre of a series of reflections on practice and theory. Contributors from all over the world are brought together, incorporating a range of perspectives from narrative, systemic and social constructionist frameworks. The book is divided into three sections, covering: reflections on hope and despair facing adversity: practices of hope reflections on reconciliation and forgiveness. Hope and Despair in Narrative and Family Therapy looks at the importance of hope in bringing about positive therapeutic change. This book will be of great use to family therapists, psychotherapists, counsellors, and students on therapeutic training courses.
