Abstract
When we learn about something bad - even when we hear only bits and pieces of it - our brains get busy trying to make sense of what we've heard. Seeing distressing events on the news, or hearing about them later, can feel scary and overwhelming. Talking about what happened, and how we feel about it, is hugely important.
Something Bad Happened guides children aged 6 to 12 and the adults who care about them through tough conversations about news of large-scale events, addressing questions such as: "Where did it happen?" "Why did it happen?" And, "Will it happen again?" Feelings like sadness, fear and confusion are normalized, and coping tools provided.
For children and parents to read together, or by a child with a parent nearby, this helpful resource by a child psychologist best-selling author provides comfort, support and action plans for children learning about the big bad things happening in our world.

Abstract
The Sorry Plane is a playful introduction for kids and their caregivers to the importance of understanding and respecting our feelings, from the bestselling author of Rest Play Grow: Making Sense of Preschoolers (or anyone who acts like one).
When Molly accidentally breaks a balloon she and her sister Lucy have found, Lucy demands an apology. But, as Molly describes in fanciful, imaginative scenarios, her sorries are all gone: hiding under the bed, down the sink, off to Paris on the Sorry Plane.
As their mother explains, we can't say sorry if we don't have any sorries in us. But when our sorries return, as Molly's eventually do, we can give them to others.
Brilliantly illustrated with captivating images by artist Zoe Si, The Sorry Plane carries a profound message about the importance of connecting with our authentic emotions. It highlights how a good sorry is one that you mean from the heart and how we adults can preserve a child's caring spirit.
The Sorry Plane bears the Neufeld Institute Recommended seal which highlights children's literature that is congruent with developmental science as well as with the relational-developmental approach articulated by Dr. Gordon Neufeld, PhD.

Abstract
Naître fille ou garçon, cela change une vie. Dans beaucoup de domaines, cela influe sur nos occupations, la façon dont on s'habille, dont on communique avec les autres, les études que l'on mène, le métier que l'on choisit... Indépendamment de notre volonté, la société assigne aux filles certains comportements : cela peut engendrer des souffrances.
Pour les combattre, Emmanuelle Piquet puise dans son expérience et expose dans ce livre des exemples concrets (la répartition inégale de l'espace, les baisers forcés, les injonctions ou les remarques dégradantes sur le physique, les viols, les injures...) et propose des outils pour élaborer une stratégie de parade, des « flèches de résistance », adaptées à chaque situation. C'est actif, dynamique, original et profondément efficace !

Flora a tout pour être heureuse: un fils plein d?humour et d?esprit, un mari brillant, une vie professionnelle valorisante, des amis aimants, et même un magnifique cerisier à admirer au fil des saisons. Mais il y a un mais: une minuscule remarque désobligeante, un simple désaccord, une critique inoffensive peuvent suffire à perturber la belle dynamique de sa vie et à détruire toute confiance en elle.
Flora le sait: elle est hypersensible. Et cette qualité, qui lui apporte d?immenses joies, une empathie exceptionnelle, une relation émerveillée avec la nature, semble désormais menacer son équilibre et nuire à son bonheur. Elle prend donc les choses en main et consulte Marc, un professeur de yoga entendu à l?occasion d?une conférence. Grâce à cette démarche, elle comprendra qui elle est, elle apprendra à faire de sa sensibilité non plus un obstacle mais une ressource inépuisable garante de son bonheur au quotidien.

On a souvent vu des gens se découvrir des forces insoupçonnées devant la maladie. Pour certaines personnes, celle-ci a même servi de révélateur, de tremplin vers une vie plus authentique. D'autres ont compris à quel point une attitude positive pouvait produire des effets remarquables sur leur état physique et psychologique. Qui sont tous ces gens aux parcours extraordinaires et qu'ont-ils à nous apprendre? En s'appuyant sur leurs histoires et sur des données scientifiques récentes, Lucie Mandeville met en lumière huit attitudes qui favorisent un retour à la santé et qui nous permettent de reprendre notre vie en mains.
Faites connaissance avec les optimistes, les rusés, les bons vivants, les paisibles, les increvables, les fervents, les sociables et les courageux. Ils font la preuve que, même si la médecine peut nous aider à lutter contre la maladie, nous avons un rôle de premier plan à jouer quand il s'agit de retrouver l'équilibre et de nous offrir une vie meilleure.

Grâce à des récits infiniment personnels qui mettent à mal les tabous et à des textes contenant des informations ultra-pratiques (mais trop rarement véhiculées), les auteures ouvrent les rideaux et proposent une réflexion sur plusieurs aspects de la santé mentale, tels que son impact sur le quotidien et les relations humaines. Cet ouvrage magnifiquement illustré est rédigé sous le ton de la confidence entre copines (#LaVibeTPL) qui a fait la renommée de Ton Petit Look (TPL), tant sur le Web qu'en librairie.

Que l'enfant aie peur d'un monstre dans son placard, de s'éloigner, de sauter dans l'eau ou des autres enfants, son anxiété le limite dans sa vie et peut être particulièrement exaspérante pour toute la famille. Dans ce livre, vous comprendrez pourquoi les explications logiques et le réconfort échouent le plus souvent, pourquoi l'évitement n'est pas une bonne idée et pourquoi forcer n'aide pas. Lawrence Cohen, l'auteur de « Qui veut jouer avec moi ? » propose ici des stratégies originales, simples et efficaces pour aider votre enfant non seulement à dépasser son anxiété, mais aussi à retrouver confiance et solidité. Vous saurez : enseigner à votre enfant comment fonctionne le système de sécurité de son corps : l'alerte, l'alarme, l'évaluation et la fin d'alerte. L'aider à tolérer l'inconfort et traverser un moment effrayant, sans fuir ni serrer les dents. Trouver des façons rigolotes de relâcher les tensions. Rester vous-même calme lors d'une crise. Rendre à votre enfant la maîtrise de ses pensées, pour que les pensées anxieuses laissent la place à d'autres plus constructives. Mine de ressources et de finesse, ce livre propose des solutions et des techniques pour passer d'anxiété, inquiétude et peur à confiance, connexion et joie !

Abstract
The first parenting book to bring the science and psychology of children's behavior together to build brain/body awareness for self-regulation and success Self-Reg is a ground-breaking book that presents an entirely new understanding of your child's emotions and behavior that serves as a practical guide for parents to help their kids engage calmly and successfully in learning and life. Rooted in decades of clinical practice and research by leading child psychologist Dr. Stuart Shanker, Self-Reg realigns the power of the parent-child relationship for positive change. Self-regulation is the nervous system's way of responding to stress. We are seeing a generation of children and teens with excessively high levels of stress and, as a result, an explosion of emotional, social, learning, behavior, and physical health problems. But few parents recognize the "hidden stressors" that their children are struggling with: physiological as well as social and emotional. An entrenched view of child rearing is seeing our children as lacking self-control or will-power, but the real basis for these problems lies in excessive stress. Self-regulation can dramatically improve a child's mood, attention, and concentration. It can help children to feel empathy and to develop the sorts of virtues that every parent knows are vital for their child's long-term well-being. Self-regulation brings about profound and lasting transformation that continues to mature throughout life. Shanker translates decades of his findings from working with children into practical, prescriptive advice for parents, giving them concrete ways to develop their self-regulation skills and teach their children how to do the same for optimal learning, social, and emotional growth as well as for overall well-being.

Abstract
"'Let your illness be your spiritual teacher!' Make a statement like that to someone who's struggled for years with, say, rheumatoid arthritis, and be prepared for an eye roll (at best). To Peter Fernando's credit, he makes that statement, and no such impulse arises. We believe him because he's been there himself and because he backs up the statements with his own real experiences and with real wisdom from the Buddhist teachings. Fernando starts by defusing the pernicious belief that anyone is somehow responsible for their illness: you're not "wrong" for being sick. Then, having gotten past self-blame, one can begin to learn self-kindness. From there, one moves to mindfulness practices and cultivating body awareness?even if body awareness is distasteful when the body isn't behaving the way you like. Further topics include getting intimate with dark emotions (fear, despair, the scary future, frustration, grief, etc.), learning equanimity (rejoicing in the good fortune of those who don't share your suffering), cultivating healthy relationships in the midst of everything, and practical advice for living with pain. Each chapter comes with one or more practices or guided meditations for putting the teachings into practice"--from publisher.

Le sexisme est plus que jamais d'actualité. Même si notre société a évolué, l'égalité entre les hommes et les femmes, entre les filles et les garçons, est loin d'être réalisée. Nous sommes encore prisonniers de nos clichés, de nos stéréotypes sexistes. Ils peuvent avoir de lourdes conséquences et nous empêchent de nous réaliser pleinement. Parler du sexisme, c'est tenter de le comprendre pour mieux le combattre.Tel est l'objectif de ce livre, qui, sous la forme d'un abécédaire en 60 mots, décrypte tous les aspects du sexisme, passés et présents : de "Amazones" à "Zizi/Zézette", en passant par "Beauté", "Egalité des sexes", "Foot", "Manuels Scolaires", "Violences"...

Written by a psychologist, this is a story of a girl who is having a difficult time in middle school. She is overweight and she has a hard time to stop eating when she feels sad or mad. Through Jenna's story, kids will learn how to stop overeating before it starts, identify emotional triggers that push them to food, and get healthier by taking better care of their bodies and minds.

Abstract
In this book, the author, a Harvard psychologist, argues that parents, not peers or television, are the primary shapers of their children’s moral lives. He contends that parents' intense focus on children's happiness; obsession with achievement; and desire to be closer to their children; have eroded their influence as moral mentors and have imperiled their children's moral growth. The author highlights inspiring parents, teachers and coaches, and presents concrete strategies for moral, happy children.

In his book, Levine draws on his experience as a clinician, a student of comparative brain research, a stress scientist and an observer of the naturalistic animal world, to explain the nature and transformation of trauma in the body, brain and psyche. This book is based on the idea that trauma is neither a disease nor a disorder, but rather an injury caused by fright, helplessness and loss that can be healed by engaging our innate capacity to self-regulate high states of arousal and intense emotions. Presenting a theoretical framework as well as case examples, the book blends the latest findings in biology, neuroscience and body-oriented psychotherapy.

Food has the power to temporarily alleviate stress and sadness, enhance joy, and bring us comfort when we need it most. It's no wonder experts estimate that 75 percent of overeating is triggered by our emotions, not physical hunger. The good news is you can instead soothe yourself through dozens of mindful activities that are healthy for both body and mind.
Susan Albers, author of Eating Mindfully, now offers 50 Ways to Soothe Yourself Without Food, a collection of mindfulness skills and practices for relaxing the body in times of stress and ending your dependence on eating as a means of coping with difficult emotions. You'll not only discover easy ways to soothe urges to overeat, you'll also learn how to differentiate emotion-driven hunger from healthy hunger. Reach for this book instead of the refrigerator next time you feel the urge to snack-these alternatives are just as satisfying!

"The quest for perfection is exhausting and unrelenting. There is a constant barrage of social expectations that teach us that being imperfect is synonymous with being inadequate. Everywhere we turn, there are messages that tell us who, what and how we?re supposed to be. So, we learn to hide our struggles and protect ourselves from shame, judgment, criticism and blame by seeking safety in pretending and perfection"--from the Publisher.

Abstract
De nos jours, il est courant d'entendre que les maladies organiques peuvent être directement reliées aux émotions que l'on vit. Votre corps exprime prévisément les problèms que votre «tête» ne veut ou ne sait pas voir. On appelle cette interaction corps-émotion la «psychosomatisation».
En plus de proposer un survol historique, cet ouvrage expose les étapes propres à ce mécanisme: les émotions ressenties, le décodage mental, le message transmis, le récepteur ? qui est la partie du corps touchée par l?émotion ?, et la réaction.
Les maladies et leurs émotions ne prétend pas être un dictionnaire médical ou psychologique. Il ne cherche pas à remplacer un diagnostic professionnel, mais au contraire à le compléter en dévoilant le côté caché des malaises qui vous handicapent dans votre vie quotidienne.
