Zorg voor de verstandelijk gehandicapte: Basiswerken verpleging en verzorging

by Yvonne van de Ven

Behandelt de meest voorkomende onderwerpen en begrippen.<P><P> Koppelt de theorie aan de praktijk door middel van casussen.<P> Behandelt naast de beperkingen ook de mogelijkheden tot ondersteuning.<P> Gaat verder dan de basisprincipes.<P> Zorg voor de verstandelijke gehandicapte laat zien hoe veelzijdig begeleiding aan mensen met een verstandelijke beperking is. Alle onderwerpen en begrippen die regelmatig voorkomen in deze zorg, komen aan bod. Om de theorie dicht bij de praktijk te brengen, is deze gekoppeld aan een casus. Dat maakt het boek aansprekend en goed leesbaar. Ook onderwerpen als wetgeving en kwaliteit blijven op deze manier dicht bij het werk van de verzorgende. De ondersteuning aan mensen met een verstandelijke beperking vindt zo veel mogelijk in de maatschappij plaats. Dit vergt van de verzorgende een aanpassing in houding en begeleiding. Het boek behandelt, naast de beperkingen, de mogelijkheden tot ondersteuning. Mensen met een verstandelijke beperking ervaren vaak beperkingen op lichamelijk, psychisch en sociaal gebied. De combinatie hiervan maakt het noodzakelijk om vanuit een breed perspectief naar cliënten te kijken. Het boek maakt duidelijk dat de rol van de verzorgende centraal staat in de multidisciplinaire begeleiding. Om problemen op tijd te signaleren, is observatie op basis van voldoende basiskennis noodzakelijk. Deze kennis biedt dit boek.

Youth and Disability: A Challenge to Mr Reasonable (Interdisciplinary Disability Studies)

by Jenny Slater

In this ground-breaking book, Jenny Slater uses the lens of ’the reasonable’ to explore how normative understandings of youth, dis/ability and the intersecting identities of gender and sexuality impact upon the lives of young dis/abled people. Although youth and disability have separately been thought within socio-cultural frameworks, rarely have sociological studies of ’youth’ and ’disability’ been brought together. By taking an interdisciplinary, critical disability studies approach to explore the socio-cultural concepts of ’youth’ and ’disability’ alongside one-another, Slater convincingly demonstrates that ’youth’ and ’disability’ have been conceptualised within medical/psychological frameworks for too long. With chapters focusing on access and youth culture, independence, autonomy and disabled people’s movements, and the body, gender and sexuality, this volume’s intersectional and transdisciplinary engagement with social theory offers a significant contribution to existing theoretical and empirical literature and knowledges around disability and youth. Indeed, through highlighting the ableism of adulthood and the falsity of conceptualising youth as a time of becoming-independent-adult, the need to shift approaches to research around dis/abled youth is one of the main themes of the book. This book therefore is a provocation to rethink what is implicit about ’youth’ and ’disability’. Moreover, through such an endeavour, this book sits as a challenge to Mr Reasonable.

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?

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.

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.

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).
