With these poems, and with her devotion to life, Lim is wise¿on our behalf.¿ ¿Margo Berdeshevsky ¿Robin Lim is one of my heroes. Her dedication to mothers, babies and the health of the planet family, is matched only by her love of writing.

I am certain that you too will discover that the world is a brighter place with her in it.¿ ¿Michael Franti

Sharon Shoesmith was Director of Children's Services for Haringey in 2007 at the time of the death of Peter Connelly, also known as 'Baby P'. In Learning from Baby P, she carries out a dispassionate analysis of the events which followed Peter Connelly's death, documenting the responses of the media, politicians and the public. She explores the psychological and emotional responses we share when faced with such horrifying cases of familial child homicide, and how a climate of fear and blame which follows such tragedies can lead to negative consequences for other children at risk of harm, and for the social workers striving to protect them. Learning from Baby P is a thought-provoking book which aims to deepen understanding and shed light on the difficult relationship between politics, the media and child protection.

Splitting the infant's internal world into fragmented memories is a protective strategy that the infant unconsciously uses for survival .
Author: Carroll Saussy
Publisher: Westminster John Knox Press
Carroll Saussy believes that women, especially, have difficulty with self-esteem because their lives are shaped and controlled by patriarchal rules and roles that make them second-class citizens. Only in recent decades and in highly educated or politically active communities have women awakened to and begun to expose the damaging effects of the domination-subordination soul of patriarchy. Saussy takes a theological and ideological approach in reviewing the system that fosters such poor self-esteem.

Understanding. Knowledge. Insight. It is the goal of most people and humanity in general to understand and to gain knowledge. To understand our natural world. To understand space. To understand those things so tiny we can never see them. We want to understand what other people are saying, insight into what they are feeling and what makes them tick. For most people, it is natural to want to understand more about a wide variety of topics and disciplines. Perhaps the most important understanding of them all is the knowledge of self. Adult babies have traditionally not fared well in the area of understanding of ourselves. The few professional attempts to explain ABDL behaviour and thinking have been less than helpful and often insulting and deeply offensive. Being described as a paraphilia alongside and adjacent to paedophilia and other serious disorders has been the nightmare that has haunted the community for a generation. Slowly however, the light has been dawning on the extraordinary world of the adult baby. The first step was the recognition that being an adult baby is no mere affectation, fetish or odd choice of behaviour. It was the understanding that the baby self is a genuine and subjectively real identity. Not a thing, not a concept or a feeling, but an identity. A few professionals have belatedly drifted onto the scene and made a few inroads, but they have been well behind the small group of hard-working ABDLs themselves who have sought to build a body of understanding on who we are. Knowing who we are is the key to success, happiness and the ability to move forward. The works of B. Terrance Grey, Rosalie and Michael Bent led the way to building an intellectual basis of understanding of who Adult babies are. Then came Dylan Lewis, whose canon of work in this area has no peer. This new book – Living Happily as an Adult Baby – makes a promise in its title that is almost obscene in its arrogance. Adult Babies have often struggled with the power of their baby identity and happiness - especially long-term happiness – has often eluded them. This work is commended to all adult babies, their family and friends as it seeks to further humanity’s understanding of this most complex identity structure. The Adult Baby.

"What we have lost, writes Rob Weatherill in this wide-ranging meditation on contemporary culture, 'is our sense of, and a necessary respect for, the unconscious, for otherness, for mystery, for death'. We are preoccupied with survival and gratification at the expense of human suffering and concern. This is the denial of the psyche: a levelling-out of meanings and values." "The central paradox explored in Cultural Collapse is that while we enjoy greater freedom and abundance than ever before, at least in the rich parts of the world, we can't help noticing a corresponding inner weakness and loss of control. We are also alarmed by the prevalence of sex abuse, rape, hard porn, and violence. There is nothing new in these concerns; they have been voiced throughout the modern period. But psychoanalysis can and must make some comment on this severance of meanings, and this Weatherill sets out to do." "Cultural Collapse is not an academic study of psychoanalytic thought about culture. It proceeds from direct experience of a schizoid culture. The analytic space, from which Weatherill writes, gives people the freedom to be listened to properly, and because of this it has learnt something about the human condition and contemporary culture. Weatherill looks with an analytically informed eye at the loss of a religious dimension and the rise of new forms of utopianism; racism; addiction; the crisis in parenting and education; feminism and the collapse of male narcissism; and the loss of private space under capitalism." "At a time when the relations between morality, the social fabric and the inner world are causing distress throughout the world, Rob Weatherill provides a searching study of the growing impoverishment of life in Western society."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
