Now available in trade paperback, this is the heart-rending drama of one family s courage, heartbreak, sacrifice, and triumph in c...onfronting an agonizing medical condition, written by two master storytellers. Cory Friedman woke up one morning when he was five years old with the uncontrollable urge to twitch his neck and his life was never the same again. From that day forward his life became a hell of uncontrollable tics, urges, and involuntary utterances. Eventually he is diagnosed with Tourette s Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive disorder, and Cory embarks on an excruciating journey from specialist to specialist, enduring countless combinations of medications in wildly varying doses. Soon it becomes unclear what tics are symptoms of his disease and what are side effects of the drugs. The only certainty is that it kept getting worse. Despite his lack of control, Cory is aware of every embarrassing movement, and sensitive to every person s reaction to his often aggravating presence. Simply put: Cory Friedman s life is a living hell. AGAINST MEDICAL ADVICE is the true story of one family s decades-long battle for survival in the face of extraordinary difficulties and a rigid medical establishment. Read More

She was a beautiful doelike child, with an intense, graceful fragility. In her first year, she picked up words, smiled and laughed..., and learned to walk. But then Anne-Marie began to turn inward. And when her little girl lost some of the words she had acquired, cried inconsolably, and showed no interest in anyone around her, Catherine Maurice took her to doctors who gave her a devastating diagnosis: autism.

Grateful parents and professionals worldwide have welcomed this essential guide to the highly recommended Floortime approach for t...reating children with any of the autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Now available in paperback, Engaging Autism includes new, exciting information on neuroscience research into the effects of this approach, plus guidance for parents navigating the controversies surrounding the treatment of autism. Unlike approaches that focus on changing specific behavior, Greenspan s program promotes the building blocks of healthy emotional and behavioral development.

The Floortime approach can also be applied at any age including early infancy, when the first signs of risk for ASD may appear so that preventing the full development of autism becomes a real possibility.

The messages that we give to ourselves are the most important messages we hear. The internal briefings and conversations we hold d...etermine our attitudes, our behavior and the course of our lives. If, as children, we were criticized and shamed, our internal dialogue will be self-deprecating. If we are used to large doses of self-imposed sarcasm and negative reviews of our daily performance, we gradually mutilate our self-esteem, our creativity and our spirit. As adult children of alcoholics, we can continue to remain in the past and believe the negatives that we were taught; or we can change our beliefs with affirmative thoughts that can set us free into better and more expansive experiences. What we choose to believe will ultimately rule our world. Affirmations are a way to wake us up to make us fully conscious and aware of the daily choices we make. And, as we learn to direflect our thoughts, our feelings and behavior will naturally follow. Affirmations are a way to discover personal awareness, growth and spiritual potential, and self-regard.
