People with mental illness are far too often subjected to discrimination and unfair treatment. It is particularly unfortunate that much of this stigmatization comes from the very people they depend upon for help--those in the mental health professions. Too many practitioners and scientists maintain "us-versus-them" attitudes and are extremely reluctant to admit any personal or family experiences of mental illness. This culture of concealment must change, and this book will change it. A groundbreaking collection of moving and inspiring stories of serious mental disorder from trainees, clinicians, and scientists in the mental-health professionals, Breaking the Silence is the first book to reveal the deep commonalities between patients and professionals. With an unprecedented level of honesty and disclosure, the contributors tell their own and their families' stories of mental disorder. Renowned psychologist Steve Hinshaw--who previously disclosed his own family's struggles with misdiagnosed bipolar disorder and who has synthesized the world literature on the stigma of mental illness--integrates, synthesizes, and provides perspective on these revealing stories. As they relate their personal and family histories, the contributors also describe the serious impairments that can accrue, the strength and courage that can be derived, and the influence these experiences have had on their own decisions to enter the mental health field. Moving in its honesty, frank in its disclosures, and sensitive in its portrayals, Breaking the Silence will be a beacon for those in the mental health professions, trainees across the many related fields, family members, and anyone who is dealing with mental illness. Its stark stories of pain, denial, and impairment, along with its clear messages of hope, courage, and resilience, will inspire for years to come.

Although feminist family therapy has been gaining recognition and followers in recent years, little is known about the variety of experiences, philosophies, and private learnings of feminist practitioners. Reflections on Feminist Family Therapy Training utilizes first-person accounts, theory, and commentary to explore the challenges feminist teachers and practitioners face and the aspects of their practice that are seldom considered. Readers of Reflections on Feminist Family Therapy Training acquire effective teaching strategies and a sensitivity to the intersection of cultural diversity and feminism. Students are introduced to several contextual factors that shape personal and professional experiences, as well as techniques that address predictable patterns of behavior and attitudes toward feminist family therapy in a variety of settings. The book presents innovative ideas and strategies from experienced trainers for tolerating, working with, and resolving gaps between theory and practice and for confronting hostility or tension within specific institutional contexts. Aimed at building bridges between teachers and practitioners of family therapy from a feminist perspective, Reflections on Feminist Family Therapy Training explores and helps you answer the following questions: What similarities and differences exist between American and European feminist family therapists? What special challenges does the feminist therapist face in a conventional training institute? Does a feminist or liberal context attend adequately to the needs of the multicultural student body? How does a trainer’s national standing or tenure status promote or harm her freedom to practice openly in a specifically feminist way? What new directions and opportunities exist for feminist family therapists? Reflections on Feminist Family Therapy Training looks at the difficulties women practitioners face in convincing family therapy to recognize the significance of gender as a variable factor. In doing so, it offers specific classroom applications and general approaches to the feminist task of getting unheard and repressed voices acknowledged. Finally, the book outlines future directions for expanding and improving feminist-informed training and for giving it a more central and integrated position in the curricula.

In May 1964, Bill McAtee became the new minister at Columbia Presbyterian Church, deep in the Piney Woods of south Mississippi. Soon after his arrival, three young civil rights workers were brutally murdered outside Philadelphia, Mississippi. Many other activists from across the country poured into the state to try to bring an end to segregation and to register black citizens to vote. Already deeply troubled by the resistance of so many of his fellow white southerners to any change in the racial status quo, McAtee understood that he could no longer be a passive bystander. A fourth-generation Mississippian and son of a Presbyterian minister, he joined a group of local ministers—two white and four black—to assist the mayor of Columbia, Earl D. “Buddy” McLean, in building community bridges and navigating the roiling social and political waters. Focusing on the quiet leadership of Mayor McLean and fellow ministers, McAtee shows how these religious and political leaders enacted changes that began opening access to public institutions and facilities for all citizens, black and white. In retrospect, McAtee’s involvement in these events during this intense period became a turning point in repudiating his past acquiescence to the injustices of the racist society of his birth. His personal account of this transformation underscores its meaning for him today and reminds the reader that no generation can ignore the past or rest comfortably on its progress toward tolerance, equality, and justice.

Transformative Approaches to Social Justice Education is a book for anyone with an interest in teaching and learning in higher education from a social justice perspective and with a commitment to teaching all students. This text offers a breadth of disciplinary perspectives on how to center difference, power, and systemic oppression in pedagogical practice, arguing that these elements are essential to knowledge formation and to teaching. Transformative Approaches to Social Justice Education is structured as an ongoing conversation among educators who believe that teaching from a social justice perspective is about much more than the type of readings and assignments found on course syllabi. Drawing on the broadest possible definition of curriculum transformation, the volume demonstrates that social justice education is about both educators’ social locations and about course content. It is also about knowing students and teaching beyond the traditional classroom to meaningfully include local communities, social movements, archives, and colleagues in student and academic affairs. Premised on the notion that continuous learning and growth is critical to educators with deep commitments to fostering critical consciousness through their teaching, Transformative Approaches to Social Justice Education offers interdisciplinary and innovative collaborative approaches to curriculum transformation that build on and extend existing scholarship on social justice education. Newly committed and established social justice pedagogues share their experiences taking up the many difficult questions pertaining to what it means for all of us to participate in shaping a more just, shared future.

An eye-opening and enlightening collection of stories from people living with Selective Mutism (SM), this book provides a much-needed platform for people with SM to share experiences of the condition in their own words. Exploring all aspects of SM, from symptoms and diagnostic criteria, to triggers and the consequences of being psychologically unable to speak, the stories in this book dispel the myths around this often misunderstood condition. Far from refusing to talk, or choosing not to, the contributors offer genuine insights into why they simply cannot speak in certain situations or in front of certain people. Children, teens and adults from the UK and US share experiences of feeling isolated, struggling at school, and finding ways to communicate. Letting people with SM know that they are not alone with the condition, the book will also help family, friends and professionals to understand what it is like to live with SM.

Skylar and Brinay Williams are the true definition of “sisters from another mother.” The product of an extramarital affair, Brinay has always been the outsider in her father’s family. When her mother dies unexpectedly, Brinay seizes the opportunity to put some distance between herself and her painful past. A change of scenery seems to be just the cure Brinay needed as she soon finds herself on the path to real happiness, excelling in college with the man of her dreams by her side. Her life is shaping up to be picture-perfect—until she discovers just how much love her man has to give. Skylar has always been a daddy’s girl, and when Brinay pops up as the prettier and more likeable outside child, Skylar makes sure to let Brinay know that she’s a nonfactor, just like her side-piece mother had been for their father. Skylar is the epitome of spoiled. She moves through life flaunting her wealth and looking down her nose at anyone that she feels is beneath her—that is, until she meets Dontie, who’s the complete opposite of her upscale lifestyle. Despite his thuggish ways, Skylar can’t resist the sexiest man in Miami, so she jumps at the chance to be his wife. Little does she know he takes “keeping it in the family” to a whole new level. My Sister’s Husband takes the reader on a wild ride and shows how some familial ties can never be broken, even between sworn enemies.

Medical imaging technologies can help diagnose and monitor patients' diseases, but they do not capture the lived experience of illness. In this volume, Devan Stahl shares her story of being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis with the aid of magnetic resonance images (MRIs). Although clinically useful, Stahl did not want these images to be the primary way she or anyone else understood her disease or what it is like to live with MS. With the help of her printmaker sister, Darian Goldin Stahl, they were able to reframe these images into works of art. The result is an altogether different image of the ill body. Now, the Stahls open up their project to four additional scholars to help shed light on the meaning of illness and the impact medical imaging can have on our cultural imagination. Using their insights from the medical humanities, literature, visual culture, philosophy, and theology, the scholars in this volume advance the discourse of the ill body, adding interpretations and insights from their disciplinary fields.

FINALIST -- The National Jewish Book Award In this deeply personal journey of discovery, Ami Ayalon seeks input and perspective from Palestinians and Israelis whose experiences differ from his own. As head of the Shin Bet security agency, he gained empathy for "the enemy" and learned that when Israel carries out anti-terrorist operations in a political context of hopelessness, the Palestinian public will support violence, because they have nothing to lose. Researching and writing Friendly Fire, he came to understand that his patriotic life had blinded him to the self-defeating nature of policies that have undermined Israel's civil society while heaping humiliation upon its Palestinian neighbors. "If Israel becomes an Orwellian dystopia," Ayalon writes, "it won't be thanks to a handful of theologians dragging us into the dark past. The secular majority will lead us there motivated by fear and propelled by silence." Ayalon is a realist, not an idealist, and many who consider themselves Zionists will regard as radical his conclusions about what Israel must do to achieve relative peace and security and to sustain itself as a Jewish homeland and a liberal democracy.
