Abstract
Spencer was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma at the age of six. Tracey and Steve did what most parents try to do: provide a fun and stimulating environment for their kids to grow in and reach their full potential. Foster did what brothers do: he offered up his bone marrow and rode shotgun in the all-terrain electric assault vehicle. Scupper did what sinister Portuguese Water Dogs do: he tried to eat the house one piece of furniture at a time and displace the "owner" from his spot in the bed. And Spencer? Spencer played soccer, sailed boats, built windmills, skipped a lot of school and developed a serious teenage drug habit. Along the way, Steve wrote this deeply personal, hilarious, and utterly moving collection of stories. They spilled out of his brain and onto the keyboard as there is not enough room for happy optimism and utter terror to coexist. I'll Shave my Head Too is an incredible balance between readability, humour, and emotional impact.

Abstract
Bayan Azizi was just an average nine-year-old boy playing street hockey with friends and teasing his younger brother and sister when the unthinkable happened. A series of symptoms - a droopy eyelid, a slight speech impediment, some motor difficulties - took him to Children's Hospital in Vancouver, British Columbia where a CT scan revealed a tumour in his brain stem. The tumour was not cancerous but was located in a place that made complete removal impossible and was intricately connected to the fundamental functions of life such as breathing, heart-rate, and swallowing and this made complete removal impossible. Over the next few years Bayan faced the possibility of death, endured three brain surgeries, maximum radiation, and chemotherapy. In his compelling yet humorous autobiography told through the lens of childhood, Bayan shares his life story from early childhood to present times, revealing his grit, his down-to-earth acceptance, and his determination to live a full life.

Pain
Abstract
Coming to grips with chronic pain is a very trying process for teenagers and their families. Dancing with Pain takes us into four teen's experiences dealing with pain from a facial injury, Sickle Cell Disease, CRPS (complex regional pain syndrome) and neck and shoulder trauma.
Combining animation of the brain's central role and embodiment through dance, we are led into the different stages of their healing, including the experience with their chronic pain team.
Produced and directed by Dr. Leora Kuttner with choreographer Judith Marcuse and dancer Vanessa Goodman, edited by Moira Simpson, with original score by Hal Beckett, this film is to inform and support health care professionals, patients and their families.

This is the multilingual version of this DVD. The audio of the DVD is in English, with subtitles in Korean, Punjabi, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese.
Eating disorders in the family can make meal times extremely difficult for youth, parents, and siblings. This video demonstrates strategies that can be used before, during, and after meals to provide structure and support for youth with eating disorders. The strategies presented in this video are supported by research and can help meal times go more smoothly, with less anxiety and fewer arguments, and at the same time, help youth to complete their meals.
Parents and caregivers share their experiences with four stages of providing meal support: meal planning, meal preparation, supported eating, and post meal.
The video includes scenarios demonstrating how parents and caregivers can use the strategies presented to provide structure and support during meal times to youth at home.

Abstract
Bulimia Nervosa is a serious illness with potentially life threatening complications. Coping with Bulimia Nervosa can be overwhelming for youth and their families. Youth with Bulimia Nervosa may appear to have no difficulty eating but may be hiding significant emotional distress and chaotic eating patterns, including periods of severe food restriction. These patterns can have serious physical and emotional effects that lead to bingeing and purging. Youth may feel very ashamed and embarrassed about this behaviour, which can push them to restrict even more, creating cycles of negative feelings and behaviours which can be very difficult to change. Structure and support from caregivers can reduce these negative feelings and make it easier for youth to manage their behaviour. In "Supporting Youth with Bulimia Nervosa: Helpful Approaches for Families" you will hear from parents and youth about strategies that they found helpful while recovering from Bulimia Nervosa.

Abstract
This volume is designed to help pediatric health professionals gain a true understanding of childhood pain. Pain is the most common reason for children to seek a medical consultation and sometimes is the most common reason for avoiding it. Unaddressed fears and anxiety complicate pain management and recovery. This book comprehensively examines children's fears and anxieties that accompany their need for pain relief, and gives the professional the communication skills and words that can help calm these fears. This book is addressed to all disciplines, and is organized into three parts: Part I explores the scientific understanding of pain as a part of children s development; Part II explores pain treatments themselves, their efficacies and how to combine them for therapeutic impact; and Part III uses this understanding to help translate knowledge into clinical practice in three major arenas of pediatric health care and the general practice setting: the physicians office, the dentist's office, and in the hospital.
