Abstract
Leading activist and essayist Brynn Tannehill tells you everything you ever wanted to know about transgender issues but were afraid to ask. The book aims to break down deeply held misconceptions about trans people across all aspects of life, from politics, law and culture, through to science, religion and mental health, to provide readers with a deeper understanding of what it means to be trans.The book walks the reader through transgender issues, starting with "What does transgender mean?" before moving on to more complex topics including growing up trans, dating and sex, medical and mental health, and debates around gender and feminism. Brynn also challenges deliberately deceptive information about transgender people being put out into the public sphere. Transphobic myths are debunked and biased research, bad statistics and bad science are carefully and clearly refuted.This important and engaging book enables any reader to become informed the most critical public conversations around transgender people, and become a better ally as a result.Market: General interest, professionals working with the trans community, people questioning their own gender identity, family and friends of people transitioning.

Abstract
Dans cette édition mise à jour, Catherine Lefebvre fait le point sur le sucre et les changements survenus ces dernières années concernant les impacts d'une surconsommation sur notre santé et celle de la planète. Certes, une prise de conscience s'est faite dont les effets ont été vérifiables, avec notamment l'adoption de nouvelles mesures prises par certains gouvernements : réforme des politiques de transformation alimentaire, taxes sur les boissons sucrées, révision du guide alimentaire. La mise à jour de cet ouvrage permet d'approfondir notre réflexion sur les répercussions du modèle agricole actuel sur l'environnement et la biodiversité, et sur le coût humain relié à l'exploitation de la main-d'oeuvre dont on parle trop peu, mais qui rappelle malheureusement le temps de l'esclavage. L'auteure démontre ainsi les rouages d'un système alimentaire qui ne tourne pas rond.

In her work at Harvard and UCLA, with more than twenty years of experience in both clinical and academic medicine, she helps patients make important health decisions everyday. She?s bringing those lessons to life here with a blend of science and personal stories to discuss her dramatic new definition of ?a healthy life.?

Abstract
When Meaghan O'Connell got accidentally pregnant in her twenties and decided to keep the baby, she realized that the book she needed -- a brutally honest, agenda-free reckoning with the emotional and existential impact of motherhood -- didn't exist. So she decided to write it herself.
And Now We Have Everything is O'Connell's exploration of the cataclysmic, impossible-to-prepare-for experience of becoming a mother. With her dark humor and hair-trigger B.S. detector, O'Connell addresses the pervasive imposter syndrome that comes with unplanned pregnancy, the fantasies of a "natural" birth experience that erode maternal self-esteem, post-partum body and sex issues, and the fascinating strangeness of stepping into a new, not-yet-comfortable identity.
Channeling fears and anxieties that are still taboo and often unspoken, And Now We Have Everything is an unflinchingly frank, funny, and visceral motherhood story for our times, about having a baby and staying, for better or worse, exactly yourself.

The manual includes session outlines and core content for each of the 10 sessions as well as Parent Activities which help parents to explore the impact of anxiety in their families and encourage them to experiment with new strategies. Detailed explanations and worksheets help parents to support children in undertaking systematic exposure therapy through Worry Dragon Challenge Ladders. Parents learn self-care and mindfulness skills to help them be more effective in managing anxiety and frustration in themselves and the family. Use with TWD Facilitator's Manual, Children's Workbook and Core "Taming Worry Dragons" book.
For professionals, patients, families. In the absence of a parent group, the manual may also be helpful for parents whose children are in individual or group therapy that is based on the TWD model of cognitive behavioural therapy.

Abstract
Circles involves categorizing social roles and designating the colour circle with its associated Three "T's", Touch, Talk, and Trust. Video mini-dramas serve as illustrations of common social relationships and display typical touching behaviours as well as conversation levels and degrees of safety. In Circles, the emphasis is on matching the social role with the appropriate circle colour and teaching students to model behaviours that are parallel to those seen on the video. Part 1 lays the foundation for making distinctions among the various kinds of relationships that each person has.

Numerous worksheets and other practical tools can be downloaded and printed for repeated use.

Abstract
When facing contentious issues such as screen time, food choices, and bedtime, children often act out or shut down, responding with reactivity instead of receptivity. This is what New York Times bestselling authors Daniel J. Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson call a No Brain response. But our kids can be taught to approach life with openness and curiosity. When kids work from a Yes Brain, they?re more willing to take chances and explore. They?re more curious and imaginative. They?re better at relationships and handling adversity. In The Yes Brain, the authors give parents skills, scripts, and activities to bring kids of all ages into the beneficial ?yes? state.
