Is it possible that the struggles you have with your child may because he or she suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder? Once ignored, even by the medical professionals treating war veterans, PTSD is gaining global recognition as a very real and serious issue for those who have experienced traumatic events, even children. Author Jolene Philo was always told that "babies don't feel any pain" and that her son would not remember the traumatic surgeries and hospital visits he endured as a young child. However, research has shown that when children experience medical illness, witness violence, or are abused, it can leave a lasting effect. According to recent studies, 50 to 60 percent of children who experience these traumas early in life may suffer from a form of PTSD, leading to issues in childhood, through adolescence, and even into adulthood. Does My Child Have PTSD? is designed for listeners looking for answers about the puzzling, disturbing behaviors of children in their care. With years of research and personal experience, Philo provides critical information to help people understand causes, symptoms, prevention, and effective diagnosis, treatment, and care for any child struggling with PTSD. 1.

Who are made-in-India managers? What do they do differently? Over the last 50 years, several Indians have occupied top positions in multinationals across the globe. Shantanu Narayen at Adobe, Satya Nadella at Microsoft, Padmasree Warrier at NIO and Sundar Pichai at Google - there are, today, innumerable instances of CEOs born and bred in India, helming S&P's 500 companies. What accounts for such a prominent presence of Indian professionals across the world today?In The Made-in-India Manager, two stalwarts of Indian business and academics examine this little-studied phenomenon and present a compelling argument: that a unique combination of factors has led Indian management thought and practices to become a 'soft power' with the potential to decisively impact global managers of tomorrow. Drawing on their long and varied experience among corporates, the authors explore: The deep cultural influences that engender a sharp competitive instinct and an astute business perspectiveThe circumstances that inspire a high degree of resourcefulness in challenging situationsThe ability to 'think in English and act in Indian', which enables flexible functioning in multicultural work environmentsAnd, importantly, how today's young managers can build on these advantages and bring to the table their own generational learning, attitudes and capabilities to ensure future successThought-provoking and provocative, this fascinating treatise takes a long view of the Indian professional's path to definitive career success and makes for compulsory listening for every management practitioner. 1.

National Book Award Winner, Nonfiction, 2014 A vibrant, colorful, and revelatory inner history of China during a moment of profound transformation. From abroad, we often see China as a caricature: a nation of pragmatic plutocrats and ruthlessly dedicated students destined to rule the global economy - or an addled Goliath, riddled with corruption and on the edge of stagnation. What we don’t see is how both powerful and ordinary people are remaking their lives as their country dramatically changes. As the Beijing correspondent for The New Yorker, Evan Osnos was on the ground in China for years, witness to profound political, economic, and cultural upheaval. In Age of Ambition, he describes the greatest collision taking place in that country: the clash between the rise of the individual and the Communist Party’s struggle to retain control. He asks probing questions: Why does a government with more success lifting people from poverty than any civilization in history choose to put strict restraints on freedom of expression? Why do millions of young Chinese professionals - fluent in English and devoted to Western pop culture - consider themselves "angry youth", dedicated to resisting the West's influence? How are Chinese from all strata finding meaning after two decades of the relentless pursuit of wealth?Writing with great narrative verve and a keen sense of irony, Osnos follows the moving stories of everyday people and reveals life in the new China to be a battleground between aspiration and authoritarianism, in which only one can prevail. 1.

The Nightingale-Conant Corporation, in cooperation with Sandler Systems Incorporated, is proud to present The Ultimate Sandler Sales Library - featuring legendary and historic recordings from the one and only David H. Sandler - the founder of the Sandler Selling System. David Sandler was a true revolutionary who was far ahead of his time. Back in 1966, something was wrong with the way selling was being taught, and David Sandler knew it. He was a struggling, young salesman who was troubled by the forced, rote way in which he had been trained to sell. It didn’t feel right, and what's more, it didn't work. So on his own, he decided to take charge of his sales calls. He started by making “verbal contracts” with his prospects - effectively challenging them to convince him to sell rather than trying to convince them to buy. His approach was radical. Unorthodox. Non-traditional. And dramatically effective. Sandler refined his sales philosophy into a comprehensive selling system, and founded the Sandler organization to share his unique approach with other sales professionals. Since his revolutionary methodology was founded on basic principles of the psychology of human behavior, it has stood the test of time. The current proof of their ongoing success lies in the success of tens of thousands of their clients, whose lives and careers are transformed every year. What David Sandler developed in the late 1960s, and expanded into a franchising operation in the 1980s, has now grown and developed into it’s current company name Sandler Training - an organization with a rich history that dominates the global training market, with more than 250 offices worldwide, providing instruction in 27 languages. While David Sandler passed away in 1995, his legacy lives on through the national entrepreneurial network of Sandler trainers and consultants who continue to deliver exceptional training to the marketplace. 1.

This completely revised and enlarged 2nd edition of The Tobacco Epidemic provides a comprehensive update of the clinical, public health and political aspects of tobacco smoking. Since its 1st edition in 1997, knowledge on the health hazards of tobacco and nicotine addiction has increased considerably, but recent data has shown that the global problem has become more aggravated in low- and middle-income countries: if current trends continue, tobacco smoking will be responsible for the deaths of 1 billion people in the 21st century. Written by outstanding international experts, the book covers the history of tobacco production and use, the economics of tobacco use and control, as well as the health consequences of active and passive smoking in both adults and children. Special chapters discuss the impact of media, movies and TV on tobacco consumption in young people, the patterns and predictors of smoking cessation in the general population and in different social subgroups, and initiatives supported by the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. Readers will find the latest information on how nicotine dependence is treated with nicotine replacement products, what role health care professionals play in helping smokers to quit and what effects smoke-free environments, advertising bans and price increases have on smoking prevalence. The potential harms and benefits of smokeless tobacco, waterpipe tobacco smoking and electronic cigarettes are also evaluated. This book is a must-read for anyone in the medical profession who treats patients with smoking-related diseases and for those engaged in tobacco control. It will also be appreciated by interested nonmedical readers like journalists and legislators.
They are laborers, soldiers, refugees, and orphans. In areas of the world torn by poverty, disease, and war, millions of children are invisible victims, deprived of home, family, and basic human rights. Their chances for a stable adult life are extremely slim.The powerful interdisciplinary volume Vulnerable Children brings a global child-rights perspective to the lives of indigenous, refugee, and minority children in and from crisis-prone regions. Focusing on self-determination, education, security, health, and related issues, an international panel of scholars examines the structural and political sources of children's vulnerabilities and their effects on development. The book analyzes intervention programs currently in place and identifies challenges that must be met at both the community and larger policy levels. These chapters also go a long way to explain the often-blurred line between vulnerability and resilience. Included in the coverage:Dilemmas of rights-based approaches to child well-being in an African cultural context.Poverty and minority children's education in the U.S.: case study of a Sudanese refugee family.The heterogeneity of young children's experiences in Kenya and Brazil.A world tour of interventions for children of a parent with a psychiatric illness.An exploration of fosterage of Owambo orphans in Namibia.UNICEF in Colombia: defending and nurturing childhood in media, public, and policy discourses. Vulnerable Children is a must-have volume for researchers, graduate students, and clinicians/professionals/practitioners across a range of fields, including child and school psychology, social work, maternal and child health, developmental psychology, anthropology, sociology, social policy, and public health.
The global emphasis on approaches to HIV prevention, treatment and care that people should know their HIV status has led to the prominence of Voluntary Counselling and Testing (VCT).Despite the national scale up of VCT in Kenya up to the rural areas, and massive campaigns, the uptake of the services by young people is low.Factors that influence translation of VCT knowledge into the actual uptake of VCT services have not been adequately studied especially among young people in rural areas. This book,provides a critical examination of the factors that young people identify as influencing their uptake of VCT services in selected rural districts of Central Province Kenya. Social and service-related factors are evaluated based on the Health Belief Model. The analysis should help shed more light on the complexity of sexual behaviour among young people and on some factors that complicate the process of translating information into health-seeking behaviour. This book should be especially useful to professionals in the education, communication and health fields or others interested in understanding young people in Kenya.
