Cast Life: A Parent's Guide To Ddh

RRP $34.99

When a child is diagnosed with Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH) parents experience a range of emotions and responses. They want to understand not only the condition, but also what the future holds for their child. This comprehensive book covers everything you need to know about DDH, from symptoms and explanations of the condition to details of the treatments involved. It also looks at what life is like when your child is in a cast as well as the emotional side of DDH, an area that is often overlooked. Natalie Trice, whose son was born with DDH, wrote Cast Life specifically for other parents as she knows only too well the questions that run through your mind when a diagnosis is made. This essential book doesn't bombard you with medical jargon, but equips you with the knowledge and facts you need to understand and get to grips with DDH. With comments from other parents and case studies, plus expert advice, Cast Life is a must have book for anyone dealing with DDH. The author, Natalie Trice, regularly writes about DDH, parenting and lifestyle issues for various publications, websites and on her blog, www.justbecauseilove.co.uk. She lives in the UK with her husband and two young sons, Eddie and Lucas. Lucas inspired this book and is still on his DDH journey. Part of the royalties from the sale of the book are donated to Spica Warrior (www.spicawarrior.org), a UK based charity raising awareness of DDH.

Parenting Your New Puppy

RRP $24.99

This book shows that "bringing up" a puppy rather than "training" it is the route to success.

In this practical, readable and entertaining book, Caroline Spencer and Lesley Harris bring a new slant to a well-explored subject and propose significant shifts in an owner's understanding of why their puppy behaves as he does and what makes him tick.

Like children, dogs are born without behavioural issues; it is what happens in the early weeks of life, and the way in which his new owner nurtures, guides and educates him that will enable him to become a well-balanced adult - or not.

Drawing on a combined 40 years of experience, the authors will help you in your initial choice of a puppy. When you take him into your home, it will show you how to interpret natural canine communication and play, and how to use these signals to educate and guide your puppy in a positive way. The confidence he gains in you, the parent, will help him through sometimes difficult and confusing situations, to become a happy, trustworthy, and trusting friend for life.

About the Author

Both Lesley Harris and Caroline Spencer have worked with and owned dogs for over 40 years. Caroline's early career was in nursing, and she believes the empathy necessary when caring for people is equally important when working with dogs. She is author of Why Does my Dog Do That? and designer of the 'Ultimate Happy At Heel Harness'. Caroline has 2 children and five dogs. For the last 20 years Caroline has worked with owners on an individual basis, and also gives talks on communicating effectively with puppies and problem dogs.

For many years Lesley worked with preschool children, and found this experience to be an invaluable aid when working with puppies, as the methods for education and guidance proved to be surprisingly similar. Working to help dog owners overcome their issues, together with the advent of grandchildren, has served to reinforce this viewpoint.


A Cop Doc's Guide To Public Safety Complex Trauma Syndrome

RRP $302.99

"Cop Doc's Guide to Public Safety Complex Trauma Syndrome" is written in response to the need for an advanced, specialized guide for clinicians to operationally define, understand, and responsibly treat complex post-traumatic stress and grief syndromes in the context of the unique varieties of police personality styles. The book continues where Rudofossi's first book, "Working with Traumatized Police Officer Patients", left off. Theory is wed to practice and practice to effective interventions with police officer-patients. The 'how' and 'why' of a clinician's approach is made highly effective by understanding the distinct personality styles of officer-patients. Rudofossi's theoretical approach segues into difficult examples that highlight each officer-patient's eco-ethological field experience of loss in trauma, with a focus on enhancing resilience and motivation to - otherwise left disenfranchised. Thus, this original work expands the ecological-ethological existential analysis of complex PTSD into the context of personality styles, with an emphasis on resilience - without ignoring the pathological aspects of loss that often envelop officer-patient trauma syndromes.
