Author: Jessica Minahan,Nancy Rappaport
Since its publication in 2012, The Behavior Code: A Practical Guide to Understanding and Teaching the Most Challenging Students has helped countless classroom teachers, special educators, and others implement an effective, new approach to teaching focused on skill-building, practical interventions, and purposeful, positive interactions with students who have mental health disorders. Based on the success of the previous book, author Jessica Minahan has written this companion guide for educators seeking additional guidance for creating and implementing successful behavior intervention plans (“FAIR Plans”) for the students teachers worry about the most: those with anxiety-related or oppositional behaviors. Minahan takes readers step-by-step through the process of understanding and practicing the components of a FAIR behavior intervention plan so that they or a team can immediately customize it and put it to work in classrooms. Additional tips on creating interventions, as well as checklists to help with implementation and monitoring progress, are also included. Packed with brainstorming and reflection exercises, planning activities, templates, case studies, recommended apps, and other technology resources, The Behavior Code Companion will help educators create optimal classroom environments for all students.

This new NICE guideline seeks to address these problems by offering advice on prevention strategies and a range of psychosocial interventions.It reviews the evidence across the care pathway, encompassing access to and delivery of services, experience of care, selective prevention interventions, case identification and assessment, psychological and psychosocial indicated prevention and treatment interventions, and pharmacological and physical interventions.Readership: Intended for healthcare professionals in CAMHS, but this will also be useful to professionals in primary care (as there is much emphasis on recognition).

"Happiness, whether consisting in pleasure or virtue, or both is more often found with those who are highly cultivated in their minds and in their character, and have only a moderate share of external goods." - Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) "We can't leave people in abject poverty, so we need to raise the standard of living for 80% of the world's people, while bringing it down considerably for the 20% who are destroying our natural resources." - Jane Goodall. Like no other group activity book, Rich Esposito shows a fascinating description of our closest relatives' behavior and what they can teach us about ourselves, and the evolution of our own cultures, highlighting the importance of getting to know a student and their needs in the modern day America. His Amazing Group Activities is to ensure students overall quality of life. Student behavior problems demonstrate that there is a reason or purpose behind every behavior. That is, behavior does not "just happen." There are specific actions; environments, people, etc. that trigger the behavior and ability to make reasonable judgments. Esposito's Amazing Group Activities is a must-have for all educators.

How to create and deliver effective hypnotic interventions with children. From the initial interview to creating the best metaphors, Using Hypnosis with Children is a practical, step-by-step guide that shows health care providers (including therapists, nurses, pediatricians, dentists, and educators) how to create and deliver hypnotic interventions that are customized and effective into their pediatric clinical work, with utilization and flexibility as key components to an overall treatment approach. Using case examples of language for all age groups, readers learn first how to identify the salient targets or themes, deliver a session that hits these targets with precision, and then connect the session to the child's everyday experience. More broadly, readers learn to use hypnosis as a way to help create new neural pathways, teach self-regulation, introduce a more internal locus of control, and develop positive interpersonal experiences. Chapters focus on the most common issues that children face, including anxiety, depression, medical procedures/pain, and sleep.
