A 鈥渃ourageous, compassionate, and rigorous every-person鈥檚 guide鈥?(Christina Bethell, PhD, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health) that shows the link between Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and adult illnesses such as heart disease, autoimmune disease, and cancer鈥?lt;i>Childhood Disrupted</i> also explains how to cope and heal from these emotional traumas.<br /><br />Your biography becomes your biology. The emotional trauma we suffer as children not only shapes our emotional lives as adults, but it also affects our physical health, longevity, and overall wellbeing. Scientists now know on a bio-chemical level exactly how parents鈥?chronic fights, divorce, death in the family, being bullied or hazed, and growing up with a hypercritical, alcoholic, or mentally ill parent can leave permanent, physical 鈥渇ingerprints鈥?on our brains.<br /> <br /> When children encounter sudden or chronic adversity, stress hormones cause powerful changes in the body, altering the body鈥檚 chemistry. The developing immune system and brain react to this chemical barrage by permanently resetting children鈥檚 stress response to 鈥渉igh,鈥?which in turn can have a devastating impact on their mental and physical health as they grow up.<br /> <br /> Donna Jackson Nakazawa shares stories from people who have recognized and overcome their adverse experiences, shows why some children are more immune to stress than others, and explains why women are at particular risk. 鈥淕roundbreaking鈥?(Tara Brach, PhD, author of <i>Radical Acceptance</i>) in its research, inspiring in its clarity, <i>Childhood Disrupted</i> explains how you can reset your biology鈥攁nd help your loved ones find ways to heal. 鈥淎 truly important gift of understanding鈥攊lluminates the heartbreaking costs of childhood trauma and like good medicine offers the promising science of healing and prevention鈥?(Jack Kornfield, author of <i>A Path With Heart</i>).

The great lie of our society is that mental health and mental illness are the same. <BR><BR><B>Lorenzo Gomez</B> wants to dispel that notion for good. In his new book, <i>Tafolla Toro</i>, he reaches back in time to share stories of his turbulent, traumatic, and often violent middle school years in one of San Antonio鈥檚 most crime-riddled neighborhoods. He opens up to reveal the fear, anxiety, and hopelessness he felt as a teenager and how those forces shaped his life until he began taking steps as an adult to improve his mental health. <BR><BR>Alternating between shocking stories from his youth and letters written to his 12-year-old self, Lorenzo shows young people how to retake the battle of their mind by dealing with what is true and dismantling the lies that lead to self-deception. In Lorenzo鈥檚 journey, readers will see someone who understands what they feel, knows what they鈥檙e going through, and is standing up to tell them: <i>Decide today that you are worthy.</i>

<p> Although the physical and psychological benefits of youth participating in sport are evident, the increasing professionalization and specialization of youth sport, primarily by coaches and parents, are changing the culture of youth sport and causing it to erode the ideal mantra: 鈥淚t鈥檚 all about the kids.鈥? </p><p> In <i>Best Practice for Youth Sport</i>, readers will gain an appreciation of an array of issues regarding youth sport. This research-based text is presented in a practical manner, with examples from current events that foster readers鈥?interest and class discussion. The content is based on the principle of developmentally appropriate practice (DAP), which can be defined as engaging in decisions, behaviors, and policies that meet the physical, psychological, and social needs of children and youth based on their ages and maturational levels. This groundbreaking resource covers a breadth of topics, including bone development, burnout, gender and racial stereotypes, injuries, motor behavior, and parental pressures. </p><p> Written by Robin S. Vealey and Melissa A. Chase, the 16 chapters of<i> Best Practice for Youth Sport</i> are divided into four parts. Part I, Youth Sport Basics, provides readers with the fundamental knowledge and background related to the history, evolution, and organization of youth sport. Part II, Maturation and Readiness for Youth Sport Participants, is the core of understanding how and why youth sport is different from adult sport. This part details why it is important to know when youth are ready to learn and compete. Part III, Intensity of Participation in Youth Sport, examines the appropriateness of physical and psychological intensity at various developmental stages and the potential ramifications of overtraining, overspecialization, overstress, and overuse. The text concludes with part IV, Social Considerations in Youth Sport, which examines how youth sport coaches and parents can help create a supportive social environment so that children can maximize the enjoyment and benefits from youth sport. </p><p> In addition to 14 appendixes, activities, glossaries, study questions, and other resources that appear in <i>Best Practice for Youth Sport</i>, the textbook is enhanced with instructor ancillaries: a test package, image bank, and instructor guide that features a syllabus, additional study questions and learning activities, tips on teaching difficult concepts, and additional readings and resources. These specialized resources ensure that instructors will be ready for each class session with engaging materials. Ancillaries are free to course adopters and available at www.HumanKinetics.com/BestPracticeForYouthSport. </p><p><i>Best Practice for Youth Sport </i>provides readers with knowledge of sport science concerning youth sport and engages them through the use of anecdotes, activities, case studies, and practical strategies. Armed with the knowledge from this text, students, coaches, parents, administrators, and others will be able to become active agents of social change in structuring and enhancing youth sport programs to meet the unique developmental needs of children, making the programs athlete centered rather than adult centered so that they truly are all about the kids. </p>
