Presents an exploration of the sobering history behind Asperger's Syndrome that reveals child psychiatrist Hans Asperger's influence by Nazi psychiatry and his use of one of the Reich's deadliest killing centers to experiment on disabled children.
"Hans Asperger, the pioneer of autism and Asperger syndrome in Nazi Vienna, has been celebrated for his compassionate defense of children with disabilities. But in this groundbreaking book, prize-winning historian Edith Sheffer exposes that Asperger was not only involved in the racial policies of Hitler's Third Reich, he was complicit in the murder of children. As the Nazi regime slaughtered millions across Europe during World War Two, it sorted people according to race, religion, behavior, and physical condition for either treatment or elimination. Nazi psychiatrists targeted children with different kinds of minds--especially those thought to lack social skills--claiming the Reich had no place for them. Asperger and his colleagues endeavored to mold certain "autistic" children into productive citizens, while transferring others they deemed untreatable to Spiegelgrund, one of the Reich's deadliest child-killing centers. In the first comprehensive history of the links between autism and Nazism, Sheffer uncovers how a diagnosis common today emerged from the atrocities of the Third Reich. With vivid storytelling and wide-ranging research, Asperger's Children will move readers to rethink how societies assess, label, and treat those diagnosed with disabilities."--Dust jacket.

The Clinician's Guide to Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Childhood Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder brings together a wealth of experts on pediatric and adolescent OCD, providing novel cognitive behavioral strategies and considerations that therapists can immediately put into practice. The book provides case studies and example metaphors on how to explain exposure models to children in a developmentally appropriate manner. The book also instructs clinicians on how to use symptom information and rating scales to develop an appropriate exposure hierarchy. The book is arranged into two major sections: assessment and treatment of childhood OCD and special considerations in treating childhood OCD. Each chapter is structured to include relevant background and empirical support for the topic at hand, practical discussion of the nature and implementation of the core component (such as exposure and response prevention, cognitive therapy, psychoeducation and more), and a case illustration that highlights the use of a particular technique.

""Robert Debré a vécu les Années folles à 18 ans. Il a jeté la robe de son père rabbin pour endosser les habits des caciques de la IIIe République. Robert Debré ne fut pas seulement un grand pédiatre, le promoteur de la réforme hospitalo-universitaire, le récipiendaire d'un prix Nobel de la paix au titre de l'Unicef, le créateur du Centre international de l'enfance, le défenseur de la recherche biomédicale et de la santé publique, l'ambassadeur d'une solidarité française pour l'enfance déshéritée. Il ne fut pas seulement l'ami des poètes et des écrivains, de Charles Péguy à Paul Valéry, de l'abbé Mugnier à la princesse Bibesco. Robert Debré fut également le chef d'une famille républicaine dont les vocations multiples surent investir les sciences, les arts et la politique mon père Olivier aimait peindre les couleurs de la Loire ; mon oncle Michel, par ses essais, lança la Ve République ; les cousins Schwartz apportèrent par les sciences leur contribution à ce que Robert Debré appelait la "maison Debré".". C'est la vocation indéfectiblement française d'un homme et de toute une famille que Patrice Debré restitue ici, avec le talent de l'écrivain, en une grande fresque d'histoire."--Page 4 of cover.

"Drawing on over forty years of clinical and research experience, Paul Wender and new coauthor David A. Tomb have created a classic, definitive model for identifying and treating children and adults who have Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). ADHD: Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Children and Adults, Fifth Edition offers insights into the progression of ADHD to those at any age and describes the best treatment. Wender and Tomb stress that drug therapy remains the most effective in treating the disorder, but psychological techniques, when combined with medication, can produce further improvement. In addition, extensive first-hand accounts from men, women, and children offer dramatic insight into what it feels like to have, and to receive medical treatment for, ADHD. Throughout, the book contains valuable information on where to seek help and what kinds of diagnostic tests exist and how reliable they are, as well as comprehensive instructions and rating scales to help parents best help their child and to help adults self-screen for the disorder. This concise and fully revised volume is a practical tool for individuals at any age, parents and teachers of children with ADHD, and clinicians."-- Provided by publisher.
"In a discussion of ADHD treatments, Wender and Tomb stress that drug therapy remains the most effective in treating the disorder. They add, however, that psychological techniques, when combined with medication, can produce further improvement. Wender and Tomb offer practical, comprehensive instructions on how parents of an ADHD sufferer can best help their child. Now a classic work, ADHD grants parents and adults whose lives have been touched by this disorder an indispensable source of help, hope, and understanding"-- Provided by publisher.

Anxiety in Children and Adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder: Evidence-Based Assessment and Treatment begins with a general overview of the history of research on anxiety in ASD and the path towards evidence-based assessment and treatment methods. Thereafter, chapters focus on the nature of ASD and anxiety comorbidity, the assessment of anxiety in ASD, and its treatment. Later chapters are devoted to future directions for research on this topic, including a discussion of anxiety assessment and treatment for adults and minimally verbal individuals. Anxiety disorders in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can cause substantial distress and impairment over and above that caused by ASD alone. Emerging research on genetic, psychological, psychophysiological, and psychometric aspects of ASD establish anxiety as a valid and necessary treatment target in this population. This book is designed to help a broad array of providers who work with children with ASD understand cutting-edge, empirically supported treatments for anxiety, including specific treatment plans and strategies.

Vitamin A is essential for the functioning of the human immune system. In industrialized countries, foods like flour or sugar have been fortified with it for decades. But it's not the same picture in some developing countries, where children with Vitamin A deficiency run the risk of dying from common childhood illnesses like measles. The cost of ensuring all children receive enough Vitamin A is peanuts: capsules cost just 2 cents each, but improve children's chances of survival by as much as 25%. This episode of Life looks at the prospects for two very different Vitamin A distribution programs in Ghana and Guatemala, and asks whether the best way to ensure all children have access to the nutrients that can help them lead healthy, fulfilled lives isn't new, genetically-modified crops -- like the experimental Vitamin-A modified 'golden rice' currently being developed in Professor Ingo Potrykus' lab in Switzerland, as part of an initiative supported by the Rockefeller Foundation.

Beyond ADHD weaves Emmerson's personal story of his ADHD diagnosis, exploring along the way the latest medical, scientific and societal explanations and tools for managing and living with the condition. Including interviews with a number of experts at the forefront of next-generation ADHD diagnostics and treatment, he questions the cookie-cutter way ADHD is commonly diagnosed and treated. Suggesting that the list of symptoms often used to identify ADHD can be attributed to many other disorders and conditions, he explores how and why ADHD diagnoses have increased by 50% in the last ten years. Emmerson advocates a different approach to ADHD, arguing that it should be a diagnosis of exclusion rather than the other way around, and that we must look past the label, recognizing that individual symptoms vary and treatment plans should be better tailored to the individual. He examines mental and behavioral issues from all sides, including the possibility that nurturing - rather than trying to alter or suppress - the active, "360-degree" mind is a viable way for those diagnosed with ADHD to realize their gifts and lead purposeful lives.

Cardioskeletal Myopathies in Children and Young Adults focuses on plaques that kill people in their 40's-50's and the way they start to form in young adulthood. The Annals of Family Medicine report that approximately half of young adults have at least one cardiovascular disease risk factor (Mar 2010), and an increase in cardiovascular mortality rates in young adults was substantiated in a study at Northwestern Medicine (Nov 2011). Given the increasing recognition of genetic triggers behind all types of cardiovascular disease, and the growing population of young adults with primary or acquired myocardial disease, the need has arisen for a reference that offers a comprehensive approach to the understanding of basic, translational, and clinical aspects of specific muscle diseases while making the link between young adult and adult health. * Reveals the link between cardiac muscle disease and skeletal muscle disease* Explains how genetics and environmental factors effect muscle function of diverse origins* Designates current and novel therapeutic strategies that target both cardiac and skeletal muscle systems.
