ECUMENICAL MIGRATION CENTRE (EMC). Family RelationshipsSummary: "The study of attachment has yielded important discoveries about parent-child relationships, the internal world, and psychopathology. Yet until quite recently, therapists were largely left to draw their own inferences about the clinical applications of this growing body of knowledge. In this book, David J. Wallin translates attachment theory and research into an innovative framework that grounds adult psychotherapy in the facts of childhood development. Thoughtful, practical, and highly readable, the volume offers fresh insights on the therapist's role as well as clear-cut recommendations for practice." -- Book jacket.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Identifying indicators and tools for measuring social and emotional healthy living : Children ages 5-12 years /

by Schonert-Reichl, Kimberly | University of British Columbia. Department of Educational nd Counseling Psychology, and Special Education | Stewart Lawlor, Molly | Oberle, Eva | Thomson, Kimberly.

Publisher: Vancouver, Canada University of British Columbia 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Apirl 2009 Spring Final ReportSummary: Understanding the factors that predict children's successful adaptation is a fundamental interest of parents, teachers, and those societal agencies that wish to find ways in which to guide children on a positive developmental path. Such knowledge affords these individuals who influence children's development a deep understanding of the mechanisms and processes that may propel children away from or toward maladaptation and poor mental health and hence enables the creation and implementation of preventive efforts that promote positive development and prevent detrimental outcomes in childhood. Despite much progress in the field, however, the extant research during the past several decades has been almost exclusively devoted to identifying the predictors of negative facets of development, such as aggression and other antisocial outcomes, with scant attention paid to the discovery of factors that are associated with positive aspects of development and social and emotional health characteristics such as optimism, happiness, hope, compassion, and altruism. Most recently, there is an emerging paradigm shift occurring in psychology, education, and related fields - the prevailing focus on the negative factors that lead to poor outcomes is giving way to a focus on the positive factors that lead toward mental health and well-being.Availability: (1)

Overcoming school failure : policies that work : OECD project description /

by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2010 Bibliography : p. 30-32Summary: School failure penalises a child for life. The child who leaves school without qualifications faces weaker job prospects, lower income throughout working life and a smaller pension in retirement. The same child is also less likely to take up further learning opportunities and less able to participate on an equal basis in the civic and social aspects of modern society. Educational failure imposes very high costs to society. It limits the capacity for our economies to produce, grow and innovate, damages social cohesion and imposes additional costs on public budgets to deal with the consequences of school failure - increased criminality, higher public health spending, public assistance, etc.Availability: (1)

Prepare for life! : raising awareness for early literacy education /

by Maas, Jorg (ed.) | Ehmig, Simone (ed.) | Seelmann, Carolin (ed.).

Publisher: Mainz, Germany Stiftung Lesen 2013Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: "Results and implications of the International Conference of Experts 2013" Includes bibliographic referencesSummary: Reading is vital for education and the key to social participation. International studies show that too few people around the globe can read and write sufficiently to master the challenges posed by life today. According to the PISA study, in Europe alone some 20 per cent of young people at the age of 15 lack basic reading and writing skills. That means, on the one hand, that one young person in five in Europe is not adequately prepared for entering the world of work. On the other, it means they have not received the attention and assistance they required in the past.Availability: (1)

Professionals Protecting Children : Child Protection and Psychology Education in Australia /

by Crettenden, Angela | Australian Psychological Society | Zerk, Danielle | Farrall, Edwina | Arnold, Lynette.

Publisher: Underdale, S.A. University of South Australia. Australian Centre for Child Protection 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography: p. 63-64Summary: Child abuse and neglect, and their consequences for children, their families and carers, are issues which regularly confront psychologists in their daily work. Given the magnitude of these problems in our community, the Australian Psychological Society (APS) believes it is vital to ensure that psychologists are well equipped with the knowledge and skills to protect and nurture vulnerable children and their families. The Australian Centre for Child Protection in collaboration with the Australian Psychological Society sent a purpose developed curriculum mapping survey to 37 universities that offered Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) accredited programs in 2008. Survey responses provided information about undergraduate, fourth year and postgraduate psychology programs across most States and Territories of Australia. Results of the study showed that students in most accredited psychology programs were exposed to some child protection related content as part of their undergraduate, fourth year, or postgraduate education.Availability: (1)
