Abstract
This CD guides the listener to practice breath work along with autogenics, statements used repeatedly to induce a state of deep relaxation. Listeners are encouraged to remember a time and place in which they experienced strength and a strong centre(reframed as “inner healers”). The music of Pachabel’s Canon accompanies the guided imagery of a tree Autogenic phrases emphasize growing in confidence and strength “every day in every way”. The closing image is that of energy rising through the body-as sap through the trunk of a tree. This helps to create a full circle of relaxation.

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.

This A Lion in the House program shows the enormous burden that cancer puts on any family. It also brings to light the particular impact on families headed by single parents, uninsured or underinsured families, and people in communities where resources are scarce and support is difficult to obtain. Cultural and socioeconomic differences can increase the barriers that families face while they grapple with the physical and emotional tornado of childhood cancer. It reveals the work lives of dedicated healthcare providers and educators struggling to address the enormous needs of young patients, families and other caregivers.

Destiné aux enfants dont un proche est atteint du cancer, cet ouvrage de vulgarisation est empreint de douceur et de sensibilité. Il présente à la fois un touchant récit illustré et un guide d'intervention complet pour répondre aux questions délicates... et pour réconforter les petits coeurs inquiets.
Avec générosité et délicatesse, Mélanie Bouffard, une maman survivante du cancer, raconte son expérience et elle offre ses réponses personnelles aux questions délicates des enfants vivant avec un proche atteint du cancer. Le récit est ponctué des « Mots de la psy » où Julie Vadeboncoeur, psychologue en oncologie, transmet son expertise clinique. Ses messages consistent en des conseils et des pistes d'intervention simples et concrètes à l'intention des parents et des adultes qui accompagnent l'enfant dans sa recherche d'information, de stratégies d'adaptation et de réconfort.
