Unlike other child and adolescent development textbooks, Child and Adolescent Development for Educators by Judith Meece is written specifically for teacher education majors and for professionals in the field of education. It focuses entirely on the development of school-age children and youth, and provides deep coverage of those topics of most immediate concern to teachers such as cognitive development, social and emotional development, language development, literacy, individual differences in development, and children with special needs. Few texts provide this depth of coverage. The author is an expert in teacher education, having taught child and adolescent development to education majors for over fourteen years.Child and Adolescent Development for Educators also helps students to see how developmental research can be applied in educational settings. Each chapter discusses the implication of research for teaching, and the text includes pedagogical features focusing on teaching applications. It is the only development textbook that emphasizes applications to educational settings in this way. For the revision new material has been added throughout the text, including a completely new chapter on peers and families and the expansion of the content on personal, social and moral development into two chapters. By the end of the text, students will have a clear understanding of the important role of schools and teachers in children’s lives.

This Guide Will Teach You the Secrets to Activate Your Natural Healing Power Through Vagus Nerve Stimulation. Improve Your Ability to Overcome Anxiety, Depression, Trauma and More
Author: Michael Smith
Do you want to know the secrets to activate your natural healing power through practical exercise to treat stress, anxiety, depression, trauma and much more? If yes, then keep reading... Life is complicated. Despite how automatic the process is, the amount of biological perfection goes into creating a living, breathing, functional organism is insane. Even acts as simple as breathing or having your heartbeat, two functions that are entirely automatic, require several different components of your body to be in perfect synchronization. This means that several messages must be constantly going from your brain down to your body at all times, and then going back up to regulate it. Have you ever stopped to think about how complex these processes are? Or how difficult it is to stop these processes on your own? You cannot simply will your heart into no longer beating. Several processes throughout your entire body are controlled by the autonomic nervous system-the system responsible for automatic regulation. These are processes such as digestion, breathing, and regulating your heart. This is where your vagus nerve comes into play. The vagus nerve is effectively a loop through which the brain is able to communicate with the body, and then the body is able to send feedback back to the brain by continuing along with the loop. This means that your vagus nerve is critical in bodily regulation. If it is not functioning properly, then the rest of the body suffers from all sorts of other consequences as well. This means that the most important information to functioning properly is going to be routed through the vagus nerve, and if the vagus nerve cannot properly push it through, whether due to being either too active or not active enough, it will wreak havoc on your body. This book covers the following topics: What's vagus nerve and how it works Vagus nerve structure Vagal tone and mental health Adhd and vagus nerve Recommended meals Symptoms of dysfunctional vagus nerve Passive method to activate vagus nerve Practical exercise 1-week exercise plan ...And much more The vagus nerve is the tenth of the cranial nerves. Does the peculiarity of his name catch your attention? It is normal since it is a part of our body that apparently does not kill itself to work. It belongs to the so-called parasympathetic autonomic system, which is responsible for the state of calmness and relaxation and allows us to digest well and regenerate after a period of stress, in which the sympathetic system dominates (the reaction "run and fight"). As you read through this book, you will learn all about this process. You will learn about why the vagus nerve is so critically important to your own biological functioning. You will learn about how it is directly related to several of the most important functions of your body and how it is imperative in nearly every single aspect of your life. You will learn how everything can go wrong with even minor disruptions to the nerve's ability to function, and you will learn how to combat it. In particular, you will address several common ailments-you will learn about how the vagus nerve impacts chronic illness, PTSD, anxiety, inflammation, depression, and even anger. As you read through these chapters, you will learn about how the vagus nerve's malfunctioning is related to each of these issues, and also how you can help mitigate these issues through activating the vagus nerve.

Who gets diabetes and why? An in-depth examination of diabetes in the context of race, public health, class, and heredity Who is considered most at risk for diabetes, and why? In this thorough, engaging book, historian Arleen Tuchman examines and critiques how these questions have been answered by both the public and medical communities for over a century in the United States. Beginning in the late nineteenth century, Tuchman describes how at different times Jews, middle-class whites, American Indians, African Americans, and Hispanic Americans have been labeled most at risk for developing diabetes, and that such claims have reflected and perpetuated troubling assumptions about race, ethnicity, and class. She describes how diabetes underwent a mid-century transformation in the public's eye from being a disease of wealth and "civilization" to one of poverty and "primitive" populations. In tracing this cultural history, Tuchman argues that shifting understandings of diabetes reveal just as much about scientific and medical beliefs as they do about the cultural, racial, and economic milieus of their time.

Author: Mike Dow

Rebalancing these chemicals will in turn enable the rest of your brain's chemistry to reach optimal levels. Each week of the programme focuses on a different element of your life, including improving your mood by modifying your diet and using cognitive strategies, increasing your energy by focusing on sleep, exercise and memory-boosting games, and enhancing your spirit through practices that help you connect to something larger than yourself. By the end of this simple programme, you'll be thinking more clearly, remembering more accurately, learning more quickly and unleashing the floodgates of your creativity. And you'll simply feel better - for now and in the long term.

The emphasis on the neuroscientific basis for the disorders presented and their study and treatment will also make the book academically useful....This excellent and timely book will provide a valuable resource for those involved in the academic and clinical aspects of movement disorders. 5 STARS!"--Doody's Review Service
Clashing views on controversial psychological issues
Author: Brent D. Slife
Publisher: McGraw-Hill College
[The book] is a debate-style reader designed to introduce students to controversies in psychology. The readings, which represent the arguments of leading psychologists and commentators, reflect a variety of viewpoints and have been selected for their liveliness and substance and because of their value in a debate framework. For each issue, the editor provides a concise introduction and challenge questions. The introduction sets the stage for the debate as it is argued in the "yes" and "no" readings, and the challenge questions provoke further examinations of the issue. By requiring students to analyze opposing viewpoints and reach considered judgments, [the book] actively develops students' critical thinking skills.--P.  of cover.
