I. Introduction and Summary of Books

Children are the heart of a parent. Two people get married and they have a baby. It easy to get into a relationship, however, it is hard to maintain the long term relationship. Two people stay together under one roof, problems such as characteristics of each person and others, stress or others, at the end, quarrelling happened and make decision to separate.
So here come the situation, how are we going to tell our children? Children are so naïve, they believe in what they saw and they don’t think much. Children recognize good or bad, they don’t want their parent to be the bad person. Children ask questions when they didn’t see something they expected.
Compared to my country to United States, divorce percentage are much lower. Especially in traditional Chinese family, parent will always want to have the best for the children, no matter what happen between them. Even though some of the parent already divorce, but they still stay together and act like nothing happened in front of the children.
The reason why I’m choosing this topic because I remembered I have a same aged cousin, which his parent divorced. As we played together, we hanged out together, we asked him, why he was staying with his grandpa and grandma every day without going back to his parent. He told me that he only see his dad and mum once a month because they are working outstation. However, what I heard from my parent is, their parent were not together any more. This was so upset that my cousin doesn’t know anything about their parent divorce.

...narrative, people concentrate on small units only and thus miss interpreational clues. If you ake things out of context enough, you can make almost any part of Scripture say anything you want it to. Selectivity: This is similar to decontextualizing. It involves picking and choosing specific words and phrases to concentrate on while ignoring the others and ignoring the overall sweep of the narrative being studied. Instead of listening to the whole to see how God was working in Isreal’s history, it ignores some of the parts and the whole entirely. Moralizing: This is the assumption that principles for living can be derived from all passages. The moralizing reader, in effect, asks the question, “What is the moral of this sotry?” at the end of every individual narrative. The fallacy of this approach is that it ignores the fact that the narratives were written to show the progress of God’s history of redemption, not to illustrate principles. They are historical narratives, not illustrative narratives. Personalizing: Also known as individualizing, this refers to reading Scripture in the way suggested above, supposing that any or all parts apply to you or your group in a way that they do not apply to everyone else. This is, in fact, a self centered reading of the Bible. Misappropriation: This is closely related to personalizing. It is to appropriate the text for purposes that are quite foreign to the biblical narrative. False Assumption: This is......

Trauma informed play therapy has been found to be effective with long term chronic abuse and is a growing field of intervention (Lewis, 2011). Group therapy has been identified as an effective means to deal with the multitude of emotions felt by the survivors of sexual abuse. A group environment provides the child with the opportunity to express and explore the experiences in a safe environment while working on the interpersonal skills. This intervention has been found to be effective with children between ages of seven and twelve (Lewis, 2011). Bibliotherapy is an intervention which uses literature to work on therapeutic goals in groups and in individual sessions. Clients are prescribed fictional and non-fictional books which deal with problems similar to that of the client which allows for self-identification and learning effective coping skills. Selecting a book which resembles the story of the victims can provide emotional connection while allowing for emotional distance without having to be threatened by the experience. Although it might take longer time for the client to learn to incorporate the coping skills learnt, it has been found to be an effective means of intervention (Lewis, 2011). Children with complex trauma presented with more complicated externalized and......

Frankenstein Bibliotherapy

...Bryan Pelkey AP Literature Mrs. Chow 27 September 2015 Alternate Biblio-therapy in Frankenstein Bibliotherapy, by definition, is the use of reading materials for help in solving personal problems. It can be very useful to those the struggle with confidence issues, and has also helped improve the lives of people living through depression. It is also a tool used in literature throughout history, and sometimes it can do more harm than good. In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the monster ends up with a group of books that are less than beneficial. These books are Paradise Lost, Plutarch’s Lives, The Sorrows of Young Werther, and the journal of his creator. Each of these books, especially the passages he absorbed, had negative messages that could easily scar a being just brought into this world. Had he read different books that focused on loyalty, honor, and morals, he might have not had the fire of revenge in his heart. The first book read by the monster, Paradise Lost, is a poem written by John Milton. It tells the story of Satan, Adam, and Eve. It has a specific asphyxiation on Satan and the fall of man into sin. This could very easily give the monster a feeling of rebellion, as Adam and Eve rebelled against God. If he had instead just read the bible, his outlook on the story of creation would have been very different. He would have seen the sorrow that comes with rebellion, not just the thrill. There are also many good message in the bible, like “Thou shalt not......

Studies that require the assignment of prisoners to control groups in which they may not benefit from the research may need federal-level review. Examples of social and behavioral sciences research in the categories listed above include: • Age at first arrest as a predictor of adult criminal history • Effects of overcrowding on prison populations • The influence of prison-awarded incentives (such as promotions in custody level) on retention in substance abuse treatment programs • The use of true crime/detective stories as bibliotherapy • Social support systems in prisons • The functioning of pseudo-families in prison Designing Prison Research Consent Issues Free Choice Informed consent requires the ability to choose freely, without coercion and without undue influence. Because the autonomy of prisoners is necessarily limited, the regulations include provisions designed to reduce any undue influence on prisoners' decisions to participate in research. For example, each prisoner must be clearly informed that the decision to take part in research will have no effect on an inmate's eligibility for parole. The Use of Incentives Incentives to take part in research should be appropriate to the research setting and subject population. Prison cultures and prison......

...and family background”, (Florida Department of Education, 2011) then the teacher will be written up and/ or terminated from their teaching position. Learning disabilities is one equal consideration teachers need to think about in their classroom. When a teacher treats a student with learning disabilities exactly as a student without learning disabilities it is unfair and discouraging to the disable student. Teachers should make accommodations for these students to equal the class work and expectations. Teachers can help all students in the class to understand and respect each individual no matter their learning disability by having library books read and available to read that typifies students with challenges. “This technique, called Bibliotherapy, uses literature to illustrate to your students that they are more alike than different” (ADDitude's Education Expert, 2011). Teachers are role models for students and so they need to be aware of how equally they treat each student. If teachers treat students unfairly they can become discouraged, upset, and give up on their class work and class. This could cause a drop in a student’s grades, the overall school grades and loss of funding for the school. Equality is a very important ethical standard for every teacher to take into consideration as it can have a negative or positive impact on everyone in the school system.

...[39] Some serious academic work came out of this movement, including the creation of various magazines and non-profit organizations, such as the Mankind Project.[38] Bibliotherapy[edit] The monomyth, or hero's journey, can help people suffering from adjustment disorder cope with new life transitions.[40] Using bibliotherapy to help patients with adjustment disorder is a five stage process: Introduction of concepts, selection of text, identification and projection, abreaction and catharsis, and insight and integration. Introduction of the concepts is talking to the patient about bibliotherapy as well as archetypes and the hero’s journey. Selection of text allows the patient to pick a book or story that they enjoy or would be interested in, and most fictional literature has elements of the hero’s journey. Identification and projection is when the patient identifies themes, symbols, and archetypes in the text, then the therapist helps the patient to project themselves into the story. Abreaction and catharsis is when the patient has an emotional response to the story, usually due to factors relating to their own lives. Insight and integration is when the patient looks back on the story and what the hero did to overcome their struggles, and try to do similar things to overcome their struggles. By using bibliotherapy, a patient can project their struggles onto the hero in the story and draw parallels between the story and their real......

There must be a warm, empathic relationship as well as the use of cognitive therapy techniques that will enable clients to change their thinking, feeling, and behavior. There is a partnership in that therapists educate clients about the nature and course of their problem, the process of cognitive therapy, and how thoughts influence their emotions and behaviors. This education process can be through bibliotherapy and/or homework which serves as self- help and a continuation of issues addressed therapy sessions.
