La niña perdida (Dos amigas 4)

by Elena Ferrante

La niña perdida pone punto final a «Dos amigas», la historia de dos amigas que nacieron a mediados del siglo XX en Nápoles. UNA SAGA MEMORABLE. «Las novelas de Elena Ferrante me han tenido atado al sillón, leyendo y celebrando unas páginas donde la emoción nunca es banal.»Juan Marsé «Siempre que disfruto con un libro procuro regalarlo, y el que ahora escogería sería una de las novelas de Elena Ferrante.»Ken Follet Lina y Elena son ahora adultas y han tomado caminos distintos: Elena dejó Nápoles para casarse y convertirse en una escritora de éxito en Milán. Solo un amor de juventud que vuelve a florecer la devolverá a Nápoles, donde la espera Lina, que ahora es madre y además ha triunfado muy a su manera en el negocio local. Elena es la señora culta, Lina es en apariencia la mujer de barrio, ignorante y poco dispuesta al refinamiento, pero la inteligencia pura y la intuición están del lado de Lina. Los hechos se precipitan cuando un buen día de repente, la hija de Lina desaparece: ¿asesinato, rapto, muerte? Nadie sabe, y el barrio murmura. Desde entonces, Lina ya no es la misma y la locura acecha. Todo -los hombres, las mujeres, el paisaje, la ciudad entera de Nápoles- se convierten en testigos del duelo de una madre que no sabe llorar y un buen día también desaparecerá, devolviendo al lector a las primeras páginas de esta espléndida saga. Inteligencia, emoción contenida, escritura que se pliega a los acontecimientos y se ajusta como un guante a la trama: todo está en estas páginas donde se ha ido cosiendo una de las obras más brillantes del siglo XXI. La crítica ha dicho... «Elena Ferrante ha escrito novelas extraordinarias, honestas hasta la indecencia (...) Con su escritura le arranca la piel a la rutina.» The New York Times «Los personajes femeninos de Ferrante son verdaderas obras de arte.» El País «Elena Ferrante puede ser una de las mejores autoras de las que hayas oído hablar.» Time «Una historia de amor épica, destinada a formar parte de las grandes obras de la literatura Occidental.» Huffington Post Famosos de todo el mundo alaban su obra... «Yo... no tengo palabras para describir lo que se siente al descubrir un tesoro como éste. Los que disfrutáis con la lectura me entenderéis. ¿Cómo no conocía yo a Elena Ferrante? Su saga de Nápoles es fascinante.» Carmen Chaparro «Sé que me sumo tarde a la fiesta... ¡pero este libro es increíble!» James Franco «Ferrante es única (...) Sus libros permanecerán siempre conmigo.» Jennifer Morrison, actriz en House, Once Upon a Time

Las deudas del cuerpo (Dos amigas 3)

by Elena Ferrante

Sigue las vivencias de las protagonistas de la saga «Dos amigas»: una historia de amistad que recorre los años más importantes del siglo XX. UNA SAGA MEMORABLE Érase una vez dos niñas, Elena y Lila, que nacieron en 1944 en un barrio pobre de la ciudad de Nápoles, y desde entonces su historia ha sido el hilo conductor de esta espléndida saga napolitana que ahora llega a su tercera entrega. Lila se casó muy joven con el hombre más adinerado del barrio y poco tardó en dejarlo. Ahora vive en un lugar miserable, pero su ingenio no ha mermado; solo se ha transformado en rabia. Es quizá este odio lo que la llevará a capitanear las revueltas en la fábrica y a negarse a una convivencia pacífica y modesta con su nuevo compañero. Elena, en cambio, ha continuado con los estudios e incluso ha escrito una novela. Ahora vive entre Nápoles y Pisa, y se ha casado con un profesor de la Universidad de Florencia. Así, a primera vista, nada une ya a las dos amigas, pero el barrio de Nápoles donde fueron niñas aún las reclama, las viejas costumbres las devuelven a un tiempo que ya se fue, y la vida se cobra su precio. Reseñas de autores, prensa y famosos que alaban la obra de Elena Ferrante:«La magia de Elena Ferrante consiste en convertir la complejidad de la vida en una lectura apasionante.»Julia Montejo «Una mirada clara, lúcida, intensa.»La Vanguardia «Ferrante es un fenómeno literario. Le han rendido pleitesía Zadie Smith, Juan Marsé o Ken Follet, entre otros.»Núria Escur, La Vanguardia «Toda obra de arte pertenece a un autor, pero cuando es perfecta tiene algo de anónima.»Benjamín G. Rosado, Cultura (El Mundo) «Seguramente sea la revelación más trascendente de la narrativa europea en el último cuarto de siglo.»Robert Saladrigas, La Vanguardia «Ferrante es única. Sus libros permanecerán siempre conmigo.»Jennifer Morrison, actriz en House y Once Upon a Time

Hearing the Person with Dementia: Person-Centred Approaches to Communication for Families and Caregivers

by Bernie Mccarthy

Losing the ability to communicate can be a frustrating and difficult experience for people with dementia, their families and carers. As the disease progresses, the person with dementia may find it increasingly difficult to express themselves clearly, and to understand what others say. Written with both family and professional carers in mind, this book clearly explains what happens to communication as dementia progresses, how this may affect an individual's memory, language and senses, and how carers might need to adapt their approach as a result. Advocating a person-centred approach to dementia care, the author describes methods of verbal and non-verbal communication, techniques for communicating with people who can not speak or move easily, and strategies for communicating more effectively in specific day-to-day situations, including at mealtimes, whilst helping the person with dementia to bathe or dress, and whilst out and about. Exercises at the end of each chapter encourage the carer to reflect on their learning and apply it to their own circumstances, and guidelines for creating a life story with the person with dementia as a means of promoting good communication are also included. This concise, practical book is essential reading for family caregivers, professional care staff, and all those who work with, or who are training to work with, people with dementia.

Understanding Facial Recognition Difficulties in Children: Prosopagnosia Management Strategies for Parents and Professionals

by Nancy Mindick

Can you imagine not being able to recognize those you know if they wore glasses, changed their hairstyle, or perhaps put on a hat? Prosopagnosia is a severe facial recognition disorder that is thought to impact around two per cent of the population. Frequently found in children on the autism spectrum, those with the condition have difficulties distinguishing between one face and the next, meaning that they may not recognize even those who are closest to them. Nancy L. Mindick provides parents, teachers, and other professionals with an accessible explanation of the different types, causes, and characteristics of prosopagnosia. Providing an insider's perspective on the condition, she suggests ways to recognize the signs of facial recognition difficulties in children, and offers specific ideas for ensuring that they are properly supported in their learning and social development. The issues of diagnosis and disclosure are explored, and the author offers practical management strategies for helping children to cope with the condition and to navigate the many different social situations they will encounter at home, at school, and in the community. This book offers specific, practical information for parents, teachers, child psychologists, and anyone else who wishes to support the learning and development of a child with a facial recognition disorder.

Healthy Attachments and Neuro-Dramatic-Play

by Mooli Lahad Dennis Mccarthy Sue Jennings

Breaking new ground in the areas of attachment and child development, Sue Jennings introduces the concept of 'Neuro-Dramatic-Play' exploring the sensory experiences that take place between mother and child during pregnancy and the first few months after birth. She explains how this interaction, that is essentially 'dramatic' in nature, is of crucial importance for the infant to develop a healthy brain, strong attachments and future resilience. Based on sound experience and observation, this book consolidates current theories of neuroscience, attachment and therapeutic intervention and challenges commonly held psychoanalytic ideas of child development. By expanding on the often narrow view of what is understood by attachment, this book makes a strong case for early years inclusion of play and arts therapies. Neuro-Dramatic-Play is also discussed in relation to fostering and adoption, teenagers and young adults, and children with developmental or cognitive disabilities. This accessible text will interest all therapists and practitioners who work with children and teenagers, including child psychotherapists, psychologists, social workers, paediatric and perinatal nurses, paediatricians, child psychiatrists and play and arts therapists, and post-graduate students.

The Psychology of Spirituality: An Introduction

by Larry Culliford

Spirituality is increasingly accepted as integral to human psychology, vital for physical and mental health. The Psychology of Spirituality is an accessible book that introduces the relationship between spirituality and psychology. The author sets out what spirituality is, the values it represents and how it can contribute to mental health and wellbeing.

Finally, the author outlines practical advice on how to explore and make use of spirituality, covering a range of spiritual skills and practices, including meditation and contemplation. Each chapter includes case examples and exercises to explore the ideas covered. This book will be compelling reading for psychologists, psychiatrists, chaplains, healthcare professionals, students, and anyone wanting to understand better the role of spirituality and psychology in the lives of all.
