Hidden Treasure is a follow up to Oaklander's first book, Windows To Our Children. Most of the books available in working with this population are written from a traditional 'play therapy' point of view. The Gestalt Therapy-based approach provides a more effective method for psychotherapeutic work with children of all ages. The focus is on the relationship between the therapist and client, rather than observation and interpretation. It is a vigorous, dynamic approach.Violet Oaklander uses a wide variety of creative, expressive and projective techniques in her work, and each chapter reflects and exemplifies the use of this work in the service of therapy. The approach is applicable to a wide variety of ages, as well as individual, family and group settings. The book will interest child and adolescent psychotherapists, psychologists, social workers, counselors, interns, school personnel as well as graduate-level students. Parents may also find it helpful, as well as adults who are interested in the child within.

WHAT'S HAPPENING TO PARENT'S RELATIONSHIPS WITH THEIR KIDS? To find out, the author interviewed hundreds of parents for their opinions. Many felt that they were losing their children; some thought they'd already lost them; some say they didn't care. But in interviews, it became obvious that they care, very much, and that frustration about their children's futures in this topsy-turvy world has made them feel powerless. The author wrote this book to find out if the bond is truly rupturing and, if so, what parents can do about it. While uncovering data for the book, she came to know great educators, teachers, psychologists, as well as wise parents. She contacted Sixty Minutes, Nova, numerous Internet sources, and learned texts. The opinions of many of these experts as well as parents' comments are included in this book. The author found that most psychologists are competent, caring people, ready to help needy clients. But many appeared badly trained or still echo the theories of Freud and Erickson and others who criticized parents for their children's problems. Many mothers and fathers feel these criticisms have been unwarranted and unfair. This book will show that parents are far wiser and more competent than they think.

When LET'S STOP DESTROYING OUR CHILDREN was first published, it was a lonely book. It was the first of its kind: there was no other comprehensive, popularly written book of this type. While other books on one difficult aspect or another of childhood (accidents, child abuse, juvenile justice) had been published, none encompassed the entire spectrum of the terrible aspects of childhood that faced a good many youngsters. And the very notion of children's rights had been the province of the professionals or the politicians of the United Nations. The book had enormous publicity and made a major difference in many areas. But, for years, it has been the dream of the author to update this seminal volume, the first on society's abuse of children. Finally, with the advent of a pioneering publisher, it was possible to reprint the original book and include THEN AND NOW, a major new review of the conditions in the book, and give many direct comparisons with those in the last few years. The rights of children will be advanced by the spread of information about why and how we, as a society, are still abusing children and what can be done about it.

What does it take to become a teacher, a nurse, an accountant or a plumber? It takes a few years of study and/or apprenticeship. Being educated for our chosen career gives one the knowledge and confidence to succeed in that vocation. What does it take to become a parent...usually little more than a few moments of pleasure? Which education system prepares us for our role as parents? I believe that being a Mom or a Dad is THE most important career assignment we will ever be given and yet we receive little or no preparation for this life-long task. In the past, parents produced many children in order to compliment their challenging work load. Today however, most parents would like to give their children more than what they themselves have had; they also want them to have a happy and comfortable childhood and then they envision success, fulfillment and happiness for their offspring in their adult lives. Have you thought of how you would go about assisting your child to achieve these milestones of life? ‘The Gifts you can Afford to give your Children’ offers some thoughts on subjects such as: The Gift of Creativity – how to help your child find the creativity within himself; The Gift of Honesty and Integrity – the value of living a truth-filled life; The Gift of Humour – finding and enjoying the lighter side of life together as a family; The Gift of Self-worth and Confidence… It also looks at finding the Light within ourselves and our children – the gentle vibration within every living cell in our Universe. It proposes a deeper, more satisfying and creative approach to raising children…a conscious and thoughtful way of exploring parenthood.

Child expert Jill Rigby reveals the dangers of the self-esteem parenting philosophy and offers an alternative approach that teaches children to respect both themselves and others. After decades of experimenting with child-focused parenting, parents are beginning to realize that the result is often self-centered children who tend toward narcissism, selfishness, mediocrity, and dysfunction. Rigby espouses a new goal of parenting: gently bumping children off self-center and teaching them to be unselfish givers instead. Raising Unselfish Children in a Self-Absorbed World dares to revisit the values of compassion, forgiveness, thanksgiving, and unselfishness and insists that we can instill these values in our children. With her encouraging approach, Rigby helps parents realize it's never too late to change their children's point of view and equip them to interact with kindness and respect in a world outside themselves. Teaching concepts, such as developing a passion for compassion, learning to give by forgiving, and filling every day with thanksgiving, Raising Unselfish Children in a Self-Absorbed World offers a new paradigm for parenting -- one that educates the heart and teaches moms and dads how to parent with a new end in mind.

A nation of great resources, the United States is confronted all too often with headlines about shootings in schools and with the unsettling reality that homicide rates for juveniles far exceed that of other industrialized nations. The challenge of reducing youth violence has prompted a flurry of commentary, legislative activity, and scholarly studies—much of it skewed by lurid pronouncements, alarmist sentiments, and misleading categorizations. Focusing on the role of institutions in combating youth violence, this volume seeks to reflect its complex and multidimensional character. Copublished by the Governance Institute and the Brookings Institution, the book brings together a wide range of skilled professionals and academics across disciplines to focus on the coordination and implementation of youth anti-violence strategies. The work redefines the way we think institutionally about youth violence and collaborative initiatives, providing a pragmatic roadmap for constructive change. The essays constitute a new framework to guide key players in the juvenile justice system: prosecutors, the defense bar, the courts, correction and probation departments, faith-based institutions, schools, the media, nonprofit institutions, and the private sector.

A gripping tale of fiction that explores the dark and terrifying truth about man’s ability and willingness to sacrifice human’s greatest asset for greed, our children. A powerful and dangerous leader of a crime cartel in Mexico has sworn revenge on a young rancher in Texas that was forced to kill the crime boss’ son after he forced his way into the rancher’s house and brutally molested and nearly murdered his fiancé. Two years later, Pablo Perez is now ready to exact his revenge by not only taking the rancher’s son but his fiancé and her girlfriends and their daughters as well. Perez not only plans to make Wayne Masters suffer for the death of his only son but demands that a profit me made as well. He puts forth a well-crafted series of events that will draw the moths to the flame. His victims will come to him voluntarily without realizing the danger and finality of their innocent decisions. From his villa fortress on the Pacific Ocean in Mexico, Perez operates an export business unlike any other. He exports children and young women. The small country community in Texas is ripped apart and filled with fear and despair as the homicidal trafficker watches his plans of riches and revenge bear fruit at the expense of innocent children. Every parent and grandparent will shutter as they read how easy it could be to lose their children. Every parent to be will rethink the age-old belief that they can protect their children from the predators of this world. The cast of characters from Conchita’s Eyes all return in this suspenseful story that leaves us all to wonder what really happened to the millions of children that become missing each year. Although harrowing through out, the story is also about love and mankind’s constant struggle against evil in our world.
