Abstract
Que se passe-t-il dans la tête d'un adolescent ? Comment répondre au chaos émotionnel qu'il traverse ? Beaucoup de parents, dépassés par les métamorphoses de leur enfant, s'interrogent. Longtemps, on a cru que tout venait des hormones. Grâce aux neurosciences, on sait aujourd'hui que le remodelage du cerveau est au coeur de l'adolescence. Entre 12 et 24 ans, c'est un immense chantier, où tout n'est pas encore connecté. D'où les sautes d'humeur de l'ado et son hypersensibilité. D'où ses difficultés à prévoir et anticiper. Autant de situations face auxquelles interdire ou réprimer est souvent contre-productif... Le Dr Daniel Siegel nous donne ici les clés pour relever l'un des plus grands défis de la parentalité : accueillir l'incroyable potentiel de l'adolescent, instaurer un dialogue sécurisant, l'aider à développer les facultés d'introspection et d'empathie qui feront de lui un adulte équilibré et apte au bonheur. Le conflit intergénérationnel n'est pas une fatalité!

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.

Abstract
Sexual health and sexuality can be difficult subjects for parents and caregivers to broach with autistic children, made more challenging when children are at the severe end of the autism spectrum. Some parents may even question the validity of teaching sexuality to those who are severely autistic. This handbook guides you through the process of teaching about sex and sexuality, offers to answer questions such as: Why is it necessary to teach this subject to my severely autistic child? When is the right time to start talking about these issues? How detailed and explicit should I be? What methods are most appropriate? It addresses male and female issues separately and covers public and private sexual behaviours, sexual abuse, cross-gender teaching and liaising with school, in addition to the more obvious areas such as physical changes and menstruation.

Abstract
A bittersweet graphic novel about a nerdy teenaged boy who falls in love with the cool kid at school.
Adrian isn't very happy these days. He lives in a small town and goes to a Catholic high school. He wears glasses, secretly reads philosophy books, and wishes he had more muscles. He's dogged by a strict mother, bullied by fellow players on the soccer field, and chastised by the school principal, who considers rumors about Adrian being gay as a sign that he is "ill." But Jeremy, the coolest kid at school, thinks otherwise; he takes Adrian on scooter trips, where they end up in Jeremy's secret treehouse stealing kisses. Adrian finds himself falling in love, until Jeremy's girlfriend rats them out, sending Jeremy into a tailspin of embarrassment. What will become of Adrian?
Adrian and the Tree of Secrets is a poignant, beautifully illustrated graphic novel about first love, growing up, and having the courage to be true to yourself.

La collection Perso propose des récits d?intervention destinés aux ados qui traversent des situations difficiles. « Alex » leur permettra de mieux comprendre ce qu?est l?anxiété, de se sentir moins seuls et, surtout, de trouver des trucs et des exercices pour surmonter leurs difficultés.

Abstract
School is just like a film set: there's The Crew, who make things happen, The Extras who fill the empty desks, and The Movie Stars, whom everyone wants tagged in their Facebook photos. But Jude doesn't fit in. He's not part of The Crew because he isn't about to do anything unless it's court-appointed; he's not an Extra because nothing about him is anonymous; and he's not a Movie Star because even though everyone knows his name like an A-lister, he isn't invited to the cool parties. As the director calls action, Jude is the flamer that lights the set on fire.
Before everything turns to ashes from the resulting inferno, Jude drags his best friend Angela off the casting couch and into enough melodrama to incite the paparazzi, all while trying to fend off the haters and win the heart of his favourite co-star Luke Morris. It's a total train wreck!

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.

Abstract
Raising My Rainbow is Lori Duron's frank, heartfelt, and brutally funny account of her and her family's adventures of distress and happiness raising a gender-creative son. Whereas her older son, Chase, is a Lego-loving, sports-playing boy's boy, her younger son, C.J., would much rather twirl around in a pink sparkly tutu, with a Disney Princess in each hand while singing Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi."
C.J. is gender variant or gender nonconforming, whichever you prefer. Whatever the term, Lori has a boy who likes girl stuff - really likes girl stuff. He floats on the gender-variation spectrum from super-macho-masculine on the left all the way to super-girly-feminine on the right. He's not all pink and not all blue. He's a muddled mess or a rainbow creation. Lori and her family choose to see the rainbow.

My birth name is Elizabeth, but I'm a guy. Gabe. My parents think I've gone crazy and the rest of the world is happy to agree with them, but I know I'm right. I've been a boy my whole life.
When you think about it, I'm like a record. Elizabeth is my A side, the song everybody knows, and Gabe is my B side, not heard as often, but just as good.
It's time to let my B side play.

The fifty contestants in the Miss Teen Dream Pageant thought this was going to be a fun trip to the beach, where they could parade in their state-appropriate costumes and compete in front of the cameras. But sadly, their airplane had another idea, crashing on a desert island and leaving the survivors stranded with little food, little water, and practically no eyeliner.
What's a beauty queen to do? Continue to practice for the talent portion of the program?or wrestle snakes to the ground? Get a perfect tan?or learn to run wild? And what should happen when the sexy pirates show up?

Pourtant, je ne lui ai rien fait? D?accord, je me suis un peu moqué d?elle, mais ce n?est pas une raison pour me déclarer la guerre! Si je suis réputé pour avoir une grande gueule, ma voisine n?a pas la langue dans sa poche non plus. Nos rencontres donnent lieu à des duels oratoires qui déchaînent les passions à la polyvalente. Pour une fille dont j?ignorais l?existence il y a quelques jours à peine, je trouve qu?elle prend beaucoup de place dans ma vie!

Abstract
Callie loves theater. And while she would totally try out for her middle school's production of Moon Over Mississippi, she's a terrible singer. Instead she's the set designer for the stage crew, and this year she's determined to create a set worthy of Broadway on a middle-school budget. But how can she, when she doesn't know much about carpentry, ticket sales are down, and the crew members are having trouble working together? Not to mention the onstage AND offstage drama that occurs once the actors are chosen, and when two cute brothers enter the picture, things get even crazier! Following the success of SMILE, Raina Telgemeier brings us another graphic novel featuring a diverse set of characters that humorously explores friendship, crushes, and all-around drama!
