This book will make you cry, think, and then cry some more.” —Nicola Yoon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything, Everything “Silvera captures the agony of first love in an inclusive, bracingly emotional context.” —Entertainment Weekly “A complex, touching valentine to love and friendship . . . [Silvera] gets the small details of love and loss exactly right. These moments are framed in exquisite prose . . . In this emotionally charged story, Griffin’s desire to be honest with himself and others leads the reader to a greater understanding of how it feels to have a conflicted heart.” —The Washington Post “Through Griffin, Silvera presents an eloquent, in-depth examination of 'whatever comes next,' of the ways in which the grieving process both isolates people and draws them together.” — Chicago Tribune “ History Is All You Left Me overflows with tenderness and heartache. Even when its hero is screwing up royally, maybe especially then, Silvera's humanity and compassion carve out a space where it's not the falling that's important, it's how you pick yourself back up. There isn't a teenager alive who won't find their heart described perfectly on these pages.” —Patrick Ness, New York Times bestselling author of The Rest of Us Just Live Here and A Monster Calls “Sweetly devastating, passionately honest, and breathtakingly human.

A love story for the ages.”   —Barnes and Noble Teen Blog “The YA world has been taken by storm by Adam Silvera.” —The Writer “If you think Silvera’s debut novel  More Happy Than Not was good, then you’re about to be blown away when  History Is All You Left Me hits shelves . . . This novel does more than just bring light to the LGBTQ community, it helps bring mental health awareness into a world that desperately needs it.” —Hypable.com “A pain achingly realistic and emotional book about first loves, loss and what comes next.” —The Daily American “Silvera delivers another twisty novel about self-exploration, adolescent relationships and the bond between first loves.  History Is All You Left Me is a tale for today’s youth—one that embraces the essence of time and love.” — Bookpage “A mesmerizing yet sorrowful story of love, death, and moving on.” — Republic World (India) “Adam Silvera is wrenchingly good at writing about grief . . . History Is All You Left Me quietly shows how dealing with loss will help Griffin see himself and his world more clearly. It's a painful coming of age, but a beautifully written and very satisfying one.” —Shelf Awareness, Starred Review “Silvera packs a powerful emotional punch in this multilayered story told partly in flashbacks by Griffin, who's mourning the sudden death of his best friend and first love . . .

“Carlton captures the racism, anti-Semitism, and social interactions of the time and place with admirable nuance. The dialogue and setting are meticulously constructed, and readers will feel the humidity and tension rising with each chapter.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review “Susan Kaplan Carlton offers a rich sense of time and place and a compelling profile in courage of a conflicted 17-year-old finding her voice in this interesting snapshot of a little-known chapter of the early civil rights movement.” — The Buffalo News “Every character is memorable and complex, and the plot quickly becomes engrossing . . . the characters' moral decisions are so complicated and so surprising that many people will be kept spellbound by even the tiniest detail. Riveting.” — Kirkus Reviews “Carlton does an excellent job of mixing the personal with the historical . . . Ruth crisply relays her conflicted feelings, the tense situations, and characters who are well-shaded and occasionally surprising.” — Booklist “ In the Neighborhood of True, inspired by real-life events, is a testament to an important time in our country's history with themes that resonate today.” — Shelf Awareness “Inspired by the 1958 bombing of an Atlanta synagogue, this novel uses its immersive historical setting to convey truths about hatred that remain relevant today . . . Timely YA historical fiction that belongs on all shelves.” — School Library Journal “A gorgeous story about a teenage girl finding her voice in the face of hate, heartbreak, and injustice.” — Nova Ren Suma, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Room Away from the Wolves   “Susan Kaplan Carlton’s snapshot of 1958 Atlanta is both exquisite and harrowing, and I will hold it in my heart for a long time.” — Rachel Lynn Solomon, author of You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone and Our Year of Maybe “You might not think a book set in 1959 could feel wildly relevant, but wow does this YA set in Atlanta that explores anti-Semitism in the south during the Civil Rights era feel incredibly on point after the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. In both cases, the synagogue was specifically targeted for being not just a place of worship for Jews but for being active participants in the eternal American fight against racism.” — Barnes & Noble Teen Blog   “One of the most honest, multifaceted, and authentic portrayals of teen girlhood I've ever read. This is a must for readers of historical fiction, particularly areas that receive less attention.” — Young Adult Books Central   “I loved this book. The characters are complex and relatable . . . Carlton captures the emotions and the struggle perfectly, making it a great place to find representation of what it’s like to be Jewish then and now.” — Teenreads   “ In the Neighborhood of True is a story that really struck a chord with me. It highlights issues that remain as relevant then as they are now. It reminded us that we can’t truly hide ourselves, not when it matters the most. Most important of all, it reminds the reader that we must always tell our truths, no matter how hard it might be for others to hear them.” — The Nerd Daily

Autumn struggles to keep her fractured family from leaving their island home -- and each other -- until she learns that love and change grow side by side. 'There are some things you don't have to think about, things that are simple and solid. Leaving this island is one of those. I can't leave the island. If I do, I will no longer be me.' Autumn and her parents live on a small island in the state of Washington. The slow, natural pace of her island home has always meant a great deal to Autumn, so when her father tells her that they must move to the commercial mainland, Autumn is devastated. Autumn sets out to prove to her parents how important it is for them to stay. In the course of creating an illustrated journal that highlights the wonderful things about the island, Autumn uncovers a secret about her mother that turns her world upside-down. With poetic prose and deftly painted imagery, Monte Killingsworth tells the story of a fourteen-year-old girl in a time of upheaval, when what once seemed certain -- Autumn's island life, her parents' love for each other, her family's future -- all comes into question. But with those questions begins a new understanding: that simplicity can be misleading, and that loving may include letting go.

Voices of Trauma
149,79 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Synthesizing insights from psychiatry, social psychology, and anthropology, Voices of Trauma: Treating Survivors across Cultures sets out a framework for therapy that is as culturally informed as it is productive. An international panel of 23 therapists offers contextual knowledge on PTSD, coping skills, and other trauma sequelae as they affect survivors of traumatic events. Case studies from Egypt to Chechnya demonstrate various therapeutic approaches (and the Cultural Formation of Diagnosis from the DSM-IV), often integrated with social agencies outside the clinical setting. Authors explore the balance of inter- and intrapersonal factors in reactions to trauma, dispel misconceptions that hinder progress in treatment, and provide profound examples of mutual trust and empathy, even how the wounded may heal the therapist. Highlights of the coverage: Silence as a coping strategy: Sudanese refugee women; Individual and group identity, Western and non-Western healing: a Chinese woman in Hong Kong; Mother/infant psychotherapy with a Kosovar family; Trauma and the bicultural self: New York's Dominican community and the crash of Flight 587; Why war? Why genocide? A social psychology theory of collective violence; Transference, countertransference, and supervisory issues in intercultural treatment. Today's political climate has made refugee mental health a growing public health issue. Voices of Trauma gives clinical and counseling psychologists, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, rescue and social workers, the tools to create healing on a global scale.
