"Literature is replete with stories of children who recover against impossible odds. No less dramatic are real-life accounts in social work case files. But why are some children so resilient when others are not? How can social work practice appropriate these positive forces on behalf of more children? Risk and Resilience in Childhood: An Ecological Perspective, 2nd Edition takes a major leap forward from other social work texts to probe not only risk but resilience and the protective factors that promote positive developmental outcomes. Firmly research based, it bridges the gap between ecological theory and strengths-based practice and provides a foundation for developing case-specific interventions. Building on the concepts and models articulated so expertly in the best-selling first edition, the authors of Risk and Resilience, 2nd Edition introduce a framework and interdisciplinary language for understanding and conceptualizing social and health problems of children and their families. Readers will easily draw implications for practice from its clear and organized presentation. Using an ecological and multisystems perspective, each chapter examines risk and protective factors for specific social problems and disorders in childhood, including drug abuse, school failure, adolescent pregnancy, and delinquency. Risk and Resilience, 2nd Edition is a compelling and rich resource for practitioners, scholars, and educators.Special Features * Summarizes and distills for social work practice the latest research on risk factors for childhood problems. * Devotes a full chapter to suicidal behaviors among youth. * Describes how to tailor interventions on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation."

GUIDING YOUNG CHILDREN is written for early childhood educators and others responsible for working with and guiding young children in daily activities. The eighth edition of this popular book takes a developmental approach--stressing the need to consider the child's developmental level when planning activities. It offers concrete suggestions on how to guide children as they are involved in specific activities, such as playing, eating, napping, etc. The authors strive to teach educators and caregivers to manage the environment so that children can manage themselves and thus gain independence. The important issue of inclusion is integrated into each chapter. The coverage of managing challenging behaviors has been expanded. The authors continue to take a positive behavior approach and show how caregivers can have a positive impact on all children and their self-esteem by building a warm, supportive relationship, setting realistic expectations, and expressing confidence in the children’s ability to make good choices. The book includes many suggestions for application assignments that will help the reader get to know individual children. The authors hope to encourage readers to think about the origins of their own values and beliefs as they encounter different ideas among colleagues and the families of children in their care.
