Abstract
Outlining the findings of Dr. Michael Strober's original research--that there are three distinct stages of eating disorders--this book helps parents detect the severity of a child's weight issues and helps them steer her clear of--or maneuver herself off--a slippery slope that could lead to Anorexia Nervosa. Offering guidance on how to talk about weight and eating in ways that won't alienate the child in question, it also provides parents with the tools to help them cope with the emotional issues that are feeding their child's obsession with their weight. No matter where a child rests on the continuum of eating behaviors, this book is a useful aid for parents intent on keeping their children emotionally and physically healthy in a world of unprecedented pressures.

Abstract
This book helps youth function in an increasingly violent and less secure world. Explores important topics such as: The combination of forces that create "human volcanoes" who explode with rage and violence; The "hidden" violence that permeates our entertainment, news, and language. Because we've all become desensitized to this destructive force, we must learn to see the media with new eyes; How tolerating behaviors such as teasing, sarcasm, and bullying, which often leave emotional scars, actually encourages future acts of violence; Specific steps young people can take to reduce violence in their personal behavior, their relationships with family and friends, and in their schools and communities.

When Sara Taylor was diagnosed with a rare and deadly form of cancer at age 23, she went looking in cancer agency libraries for answers and for resources that would address the particular issues that she faced, as a young adult dealing with a life-threatening illness. Almost everything she found was targeted at patients decades older than she, people who were at very different stages in their lives - professionally, socially and emotionally. The result is the documentary film, Chasing Rainbows: Young Adults Living With Cancer – a dynamic, intimate portrait of six young people who are “living life while fighting for it”.
