Unpack my Heart with Words explores how literature can be used to help young victims cope with their experiences. The process of reading, discussing and rewriting carefully selected texts can have a significant therapeutic impact, as the young person identifies his or her own experience in the narrative. This book guides readers through all aspects of implementing biblio/narrative therapy with children and adolescents, from the importance of cultural sensitivity and understanding the psychological needs of the child to providing more practical information on how to choose the right text and encourage expression through the spoken and written word. It includes exercises for use in sessions, an analysis of the importance of symbol when working therapeutically with children, and a complete account of the ethics of good practice. Drawing on the author's innovative work with young asylum seekers and refugees, and with an overview of the latest research in creativity, language and memory, the book provides a comprehensive and practical resource on the use of literature to help young victims regain their dignity and overcome the overwhelmed hurt self. This book will be of immeasurable value to students and practitioners world-wide in arts and health care who work with traumatised young people, including counsellors, clinical psychologists, educational psychologists, teachers, psychotherapists and social workers.

While governing bodies have mandated that all students have the right to an education, with disabled students treated to the same rights and opportunities as non-disabled students, policymakers do not always agree on what all-inclusive education should look like. Challenges Surrounding the Education of Children with Chronic Diseases explores the needs that children with certain conditions—such as diabetes, cancer, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and inflammatory bowel disease—might have in the classroom. Featuring coverage on a wide range of topics relating to pre-service teacher training, school administrators’ policies, and the experiences of children with chronic health conditions, this book is an essential reference source for teachers, educators, school administrators, policymakers, and anyone else concerned with inclusive educational rights for all students.

Anschläge auf Unterkünfte von Geflüchteten, rassistische Übergriffe körperlicher und sprachlicher Art, politische Maßnahmen, um Andere sterben zu machen, pauschale Urteile über die kollektive Rückständigkeit Anderer, Wahrnehmung und Erleben der Gefahr, die von ihren Körpern ausgeht ... Die rezente mediale, politische und alltagsweltliche Behandlung von Flucht und Migration hat in Europa offenen Rassismus (wieder) »salonfähig« gemacht. Dieser setzt auch auf die Dämonisierung der imaginierten Anderen, die nicht zuletzt der Bewahrung von materiellen und symbolischen Privilegien dient. Weil die Anderen dämonisch und ungezügelt sind, so die vielleicht kürzeste Analyseformel, sind wir befugt, uns vor ihnen und unsere Vorrechte zu schützen. Die Beiträge des Bandes klären diese Verhältnisse rassismuskritisch auf und widersprechen ihnen.
