Publisher: New York, NY Norton 2003Description: xvii, 403 p., [20] p. of plates : ill. (some col.).Notes: Companion volume to: Affect regulation and the repair of the self. Includes bibliographical references (p. [313]-388) and index. Held in Family Relationships @ EMCSummary: In 1994 Allan Schore published his groundbreaking book, Affect Regulation and the Origin of the Self, in which he integrated a large number of experimental and clinical studies from both the psychological and biological disciplines in order to construct an overarching model of social and emotional development. Since then he has expanded his regulation theory in more than two dozen articles and essays covering multiple disciplines, including neuroscience, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, developmental psychology, attachment, and trauma. These two volumes (Affect Regulation and Repair of the Self and Affect Dysregulation and Disorders of the Self) are the first presentation of his comprehensive theory in book form as it has developed since 1994.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Age of opportunity : transforming the lives of older people in poverty /

by Centre for Social Justice. Older Age Working Group.

Publisher: London, U.K. Centre for Social Justice 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: A policy report by the Older Age Working Group Chaired by Sara McKee June 2011 Bibliography : pp. 149-153Summary: Life expectancy in Britain has increased dramatically over the last 80 years. This is an achievement that should be celebrated unequivocally as many older people have been able to realise the opportunities a longer life has afforded. Home ownership has reached unprecedented levels and civic participation is widespread. Yet there is another side of the coin. This review's interim report, The Forgotten Age, identified another group of older people in Britain for whom increased life expectancy has not yet afforded greater opportunities. With one in five pensioners living below the poverty line, we analysed the wide range of challenges facing older people in our most deprived communities: stubbornly high levels of social isolation, not helped by poor transport routes particularly in rural areas; the poor housing conditions in which many (and even many homeowners) live; the poor health from which many suffer; the lack of access to good, independent financial advice and a faltering social care system. We believe, however, that for this group later life does not have to be this way. We believe the challenges identified in The Forgotten Age are not insurmountable and that for these individuals later life can be the 'time of gifts' it is for so many others. Age of Opportunity focusses on reforms to bring about this change.Availability: (1)

Backing the future : why investing in children is good for us all /

by Aked, Jody | New Economics Foundation | Steuer, Nicola | Lawlor, Eilis | Spratt, Stephen.

Publisher: London, U.K. New Economics Foundation 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The report makes clear the need for a comprehensive investment programme in preventative services for children and young people that would both save spending on dealing with the impact of problems later, and deliver wider benefits to society. To achieve lasting change, Backing the Future demonstrates why it is essential to address the impact of the structural factors affecting the circumstances of children?s lives, such as poverty and inequality, together with psychological and social dimensions of their well-being. We show how this can be achieved and present an economic model for how the UK Government could fund a transition to a more preventative system, therefore turning aspiration into reality.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Inquiry into Opportunities for Participation of Victorian Seniors /

by Victoria. Parliament. Family and Community Development ommittee.

Publisher: East Melbourne, Vic. Victoria. Parliament. Family and Community Development Committee 2012Description: PDF.Other title: Victoria. Parliament. Parliamentary paper ; session 2010-12,.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2012 Georgie Crozier, MP (Chair)Summary: This report makes a series of recommendations to foster and enable older people to participate socially, economically and in the community to the extent that they want and choose to. Increased longevity and population ageing are international trends that are contributing to new thinking about the participation of people in later life. The Committee identified that a key component of changing our views of age and ageing is rethinking how we understand people in later life and their diverse experiences. To successfully rethink approaches to longevity and achieve an age-friendly Victoria that maximises opportunities for participation by people in later life, the Committee's report recommends a statewide, whole of government strategy for older people. The report outlines each element of the proposed strategy for older people. It identifies the importance of empowering senior Victorians and recognising their diversity in how they participate. The Committee's recommended strategy highlights the importance of challenging perceptions of older people in the broader community and how their participation is viewed.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2).

Rebuilding social support networks in small & [and] emerging refugee communities . /

by Whittlesea Community Connections.

Publisher: Epping, Vic. Whittlesea Community Connections 2008Description: 64 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: Independent community structures are the social fabric of communities providing strength, social interaction and contributing to identity and place within the broader community. Support networks act as key coping and survival mechanisms particularly during times of hardship. Re-establishing community structures during the settlement process however can be complex, impacted by factors such as loss of community members, dispersed settlement and lack of resources including language. The fact that emerging communities have reestablished community support structures despite these barriers and largely independently of formal support indicates that there are inherent strengths and capacities from which we can learn. This study highlights the importance of community support networks and the extent to which they provide much of the informal settlement support and social connections necessary to achieve successful settlement outcomes. To improve the sustainability and long- term outcomes for small and isolated refugee communities, greater support to strengthen internal structures and develop connections across communities is needed. In order to facilitate this process, the way in which social infrastructures are impacted by the settlement experience requires further analysis and was an aim of this research. Availability: (1)

Social cohesion in diverse communities /

Publisher: York, U.K. Joseph Rowntree Foundation 2007Description: PDF.Notes: URL: '' Checked: 6/10/2008 10:47:43 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: "This report explores relationships between new and established communities in ethnically diverse neighbourhoods. Ethnic difference and community relationships are under greater scrutiny following the 2001 disturbances in the North of England and the war on terror . A high-profi le policy response has been the promotion of social cohesion. The study takes a critical look at the meaning of social cohesion for new and established residents in Moss Side in Manchester and North Tottenham in the London Borough of Haringey. It describes patterns of neighbourhood diversity and residents accounts of social interaction, within their own ethnic groups and across others. The report considers whether ethnic difference is a source of neighbourhood tensions, and the meaning of community and belonging. It draws on resident and service provider accounts to show the factors that hinder or promote social cohesion and gives recommendations for policy and practice." -- Publisher website.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Social integration of Muslim settlers in Cobram /

by Monash University. School of Political and Social Inquiry. entre for Muslim Minorities and Islam Policy Studies.

Publisher: Clayton, Vic. Monash University. School of Political and Social Inquiry. Centre for Muslim Minorities and Islam Policy Studies 2006Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2006 Report sponsored by the Scanlon Foundation Bibliography : p. 28-29Summary: This project explores issues, challenges and successes surrounding the settlement and social integration of Muslim settlers in Cobram, Moira Shire in Victoria. It looks at relationships between Muslims and non-Muslims particularly in regard to services, programs and resources that have been offered to assist settlement and promote social cohesion. The area has a long history of multiculturalism and a number of projects have been undertaken to help assist the new wave of Muslim settlers and raise cultural awareness. Despite the best efforts of the Moira Shire Council, Muslim community leaders, and a range of NGOs and philanthropy initiatives, there have been some difficulties in integrating Muslim migrants in Cobram. The first problem relates to outdated data which does not reflect the growing size of the Muslim migrant community and its needs. A substantial increase in migrant settlement in Cobram between 2001 and 2006 is not reflected in official statistics. As a consequence community funding devoted to Cobram by Shepparton is grossly inadequate to address the needs of the Cobram Muslim migrant community.Availability: (1)
