You Can Still Go to Hell, and Other Truths About Being a Helping Professional

by David Moreau

From the back cover: Reading this collection while drinking bad coffee in a cheap motel room, I was struck by Moreau's honesty and humor These poems are irreverent, funny and provocative, raising important questions. Like, Why is no one recording staff's bowel movements? My coffee began tasting better, and I decided that everyone in the world should buy this book. Peter Leidy. Singer/Activist, author of Greetings from Human Service Land Read these poems. They pull no poetic punches, recording the skirmishes between human empathy and the institutions set up to organize it. David Moreau. with his eagle eye and his ear for the music of speech, details the clash between system and soul, fellow feeling and bureaucratic b.s. His clients may be limited in some ways, but in Moreau's fast-paced colloquial narratives, their humanity is heartbreakingly clear. And that clarity, mixed with edgy humor and affection, is cause for gratitude and hope. Betsy Sholl. Poet Laureate of Maine This is a wonderful (please buy it) collection. David Moreau doesn't waste a single word on setting or scenery, but I can tell you, I can draw a picture.

This is no-exit land, but each resident has a personality and character and style. There are real people here and God bless them all. Bravo, Dave!

You Who Cross My Path: Selected Poems By Erez Bitton

by Erez Bitton

This first US publication of Erez Bitton, one of Israel's most celebrated poets, recalls the fate of Moroccan Jewish culture with poems both evocative and pure. Considered the founding father of Mizrahi Israeli, a major tradition in the history of Hebrew poetry, Bitton's bilingual collection dramatically expands the scope of biographical experience and memory, ultimately resurrecting a vanishing world and culture.Preliminary Background WordsMy mother my motherfrom a village of shrubs green of a different green.From a bird's nest producing milk sweeter than sweet.From a nightingale's cradle of a thousand Arabian nights.My mother my motherwho staved off evilwith her middle fingerswith beating her cheston behalf of all mothers.My father my fatherwho delved into worldswho sanctified the Sabbath with pure Araqwho was most practicedin synagogue traditions.And I—having distanced myselfdeep into my heartwould recitewhen all were asleepshort Bach massesdeep into my heartin Jewish-Moroccan.Erez Bitton was born in 1942 to Moroccan parents in Oran, Algeria, and emigrated to Israel in 1948. Blinded by a stray hand grenade in Lod, he spent his childhood in Jerusalem's School for the Blind. He is considered the founding father of Mizrahi poetry in Israel—the first poet to take on the conflict between North African immigrants and the Ashkenazi society, and the first to use Judeo-Arabic dialect in his poetry. His most recent award is the Bialik Lifetime Achievement Award (2014).

YouCue Feelings: Using Online Videos for Social Learning

by Anna Vagin

Feelings are a crucial element of social relationships, yet students with social learning challenges (some with diagnoses such as Autism Spectrum, Social Communication Disorder or ADHD) frequently have limited understanding of emotions. Our goal for students with such challenges is for them to acquire social relationship skills that will improve their capacity for effective, fulfilling relationships with family members, people at their school or work, and members of their broader community. This is a large and complicated task. YouCue Feelings simplifies such learning using a relatively new form of storytelling - online videos - to accelerate learning about feelings and relationships. YouCue Feelings includes summaries and titles of 25 wonderful online, easily accessed videos. Each has been selected for its portrayal of rich social relationships and crucial social learning concepts. YouCue Activities, done in conjunction with video viewing, make up the core of the YouCue Feelings program. These activities range from simple drawing projects or discussions about the characters in a YouTube video, to more sophisticated activities such as building connections between the social learning concepts in videos and what happens in a student's everyday life.

Your Body, Your Voice: The Key to Natural Singing and Speaking

by Theodore Dimon

In this innovative book, Theodore Dimon, EdD, shows how each part of the vocal organ (breathing, larynx, throat, and so on) works as part of a larger musculoskeletal system that is often interfered with, and how identifying this larger system and understanding in a practical way how it works allows a person to train and improve the voice, whether speaking or singing. Traditional vocal training methods, says Dimon, cannot be effective without restoring the functioning of the musculature that supports the voice. Enhanced with over 50 detailed full-color illustrations, the book discusses the fallacy of traditional breathing exercises and explains that the key to efficient breathing lies in the expansive support of the trunk and rib cage. Investigating the elements needed to produce a strong supported tone, Dimon describes the importance of voice &“placement,&” or directing the sound to a part of the body in order to produce a fully rounded, resonant tone. He identifies harmful patterns of speech and singing, and offers helpful methods for reestablishing the natural function of the vocal mechanism. Individual chapters cover elements of the whispered &“ah,&” producing a pure sung tone, vocal registers, the suspensory muscles of the larynx, and more.

Your Body's Brilliant Design: A Revolutionary Approach to Relieving Chronic Pain

by Karen Gabler

Want to know the key to eliminating chronic pain from your life? It’s not more rigorous exercise, medical interventions, or expensive therapies. It turns out you have had the key all along—your body and its natural brilliant design!For years we have been overlooking a crucial element of the body—fascia—that holds the key to allowing you to live pain-free. Many of us think of the human body as a static, mechanical system of muscles attached to a skeleton. What is missing from this picture is the tissue that unites all the parts: the fascia, a seamless web of dynamic connective tissue that surrounds all muscles, bones, organs, and even cells. When one part of the fluid fascial web moves, the rest of the body responds. When we learn how to connect to this system through subtle movements, we open up a world of understanding of how our bodies are designed to work with us, not against us, to support an easy and pain-free life.This book will teach you how to feel and embody this new anatomy by connecting to your dynamic center of gravity, or the Core Hug, and to a vertical line of muscles and fascia that runs deep through the body: the Vertical Core. When you connect to the Core Hug and the deep Vertical Core using movement, your body is able to suspend itself and sustain that suspension over time.Your body is already brilliantly designed to support you. The architecture is within you. The key is to access that brilliant design and work with it. Through stunning imagery and simple movement techniques, this book teaches you how to use the natural architecture of your body (bones, fascia, and movement) to align, balance, and support you so that you can move with ease and live without pain.

Your Soul's Plan eChapters: Parenting Handicapped Children contains the Preface, Introduction, Chapter 1: Pre-birth Planning, and Chapter 3: Parenting Handicapped Children from Robert Schwartz's best-selling spirituality book, Your Soul's Plan: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born. This special eChapter tells the true story of Jennifer, who planned to have two handicapped sons, one with Asperger's Syndrome, bipolar disorder, and Attention Deficit Disorder, the other with severe autism and blindness, and it explains why together she and her sons courageously made this choice before any of them were born. Before birth we ourselves plan great challenges in order to foster our own spiritual growth and the growth of the people we love. This inspirational, healing, and deeply thought-provoking eChapter speaks to our heartfelt desire to know: Why are children born with, or why do they develop, handicaps? What is the spiritual purpose of the handicap for both the parents and the children? What can the parents and children learn, and how can they grow, as a result of the experience? In this eChapter Jennifer shares her personal story, then has sessions with two gifted mediums in which Schwartz asks Spirit, "Were the handicaps planned before birth, and if so, why?" The great love and wisdom that come forth from "the other side" help us to understand the deeper spiritual purposes served by the handicaps. If you are parenting a handicapped child, an awareness of pre-birth planning will empower you to transform any feelings of victimization, anger, sadness, or confusion into acceptance, understanding, and peace. You will develop a deeper knowing of your and your child's courage, greatness, and love for each other as eternal souls. The full edition of Your Soul's Plan also explores the pre-birth planning of physical illness, deafness, blindness, drug addiction, alcoholism, the death of a loved one, and severe accidents. Individual Your Soul's Plan eChapters are available under the following titles: Physical Illness; Drug Addiction and Alcoholism; and Death of a Loved One.
