Abstract
Voici la nouvelle édition revue et mise à jour de ce bestseller de Benoit Hammarrenger pour mieux comprendre l?opposition et les comportements difficiles des enfants de 4 à 12 ans. Le neuropsychologue y communique son expertise de manière simple et accessible, car selon lui : « les parents et les intervenants seront nettement plus efficaces s?ils parviennent à cibler les causes sous-jacentes aux manifestations d?opposition du jeune et à intervenir à la source du comportement ».
Selon Benoit, l?opposition est souvent un symptôme, une manifestation visible (et parfois difficile à comprendre) de quelque chose d?autre qui ne va pas. Ainsi, dans bien des cas, elle émerge de facteurs présents dans l?environnement, sur lesquels il est possible d?agir. Il explique comment, en s?attardant plus précisément au développement du cerveau, aux styles d?autorité, aux conflits familiaux, à l?anxiété, au TDAH, au syndrome de Gilles de la Tourette et à la douance, entre autres thèmes abordés. Des interventions spécifiques, ciblant les causes réelles des comportements d?opposition, sont ensuite détaillées.

Abstract
It's another busy day at the hospital! Meet doctors and nurses, ride in an ambulance, and discover the magic of medicine in this nonfiction story for kids.
This book is perfect for any child who is nervous about a trip to the hospital. Dr. Christle Nwora takes readers behind the scenes to meet the incredible people who keep you healthy, from surgeons to mental health therapists. Dr. Nwora also explains the science behind how things work, from X-rays to operating theaters.
Set over the course of one day, you?ll follow different patients through their trip to the hospital, including:
- A couple having a new baby
- A boy getting a cast for his broken arm
- A woman on her way to have an operation
As you turn the pages of this book, illustrated by Ginnie Hsu, marvel at the way hospital staff work together―see who prepares the food in the cafeteria, what goes on in the laundry room, and what doctors chat about during their coffee break.
Once you've read this book you'll realize hospitals are full of heroes!

Abstract
Dans le cadre de sa pratique comme psychologue et neuropsychologue, Benoît Hammarrenger rencontre souvent des parents qui souhaitent améliorer leurs relations avec leurs enfants et leurs adolescents. Ceux-ci lui racontent alors toutes sortes de situations marquées par des crises, de l'opposition, de la tristesse, de l'anxiété ou de la colère, mais aussi par leur propre sentiment d'impuissance en regard de la distance qu'ils voient s'installer entre les membres de la famille. Or, au fil des ans, Benoît a observé qu'une constante se dégage de toutes les situations de détresse familiale. Cette constante, c'est le besoin de cultiver une meilleure communication, c'est-à-dire une communication profonde et authentique, au-delà des mots, là où se jouent les vrais enjeux. Selon lui, il existe sept clés essentielles à l'établissement d'une communication saine et enrichissante dans la famille :
- Être à l'écoute des émotions des jeunes et se placer en synchronie avec eux
- Laisser une place à la colère en montrant qu'il s'agit d'une émotion légitime
- Cultiver l'empathie et l'esprit d'équipe entre frères et soeurs
- Installer une autorité parentale légitime, que les enfants auront envie de suivre
- Aider les jeunes à mieux connaître leurs parents pour consolider leur lien avec eux
- Composer avec les enjeux spécifiques de l'adolescence
- Tenter de comprendre ce que le jeune vit et cherche vraiment à exprimer, alors que ses habiletés de communication sont encore en construction.
Dans ce nouveau livre accessible et teinté d'humour, Benoît aide les parents à faire alliance avec leur jeune, à créer un climat sain dans la famille... et il en profite pour leur rappeler d'arrêter de parler de bière lorsque leur jeune, lui, parle d'ours

Abstract
You Know, Sex is the first thoroughly modern sex education book for every body, covering not only the big three of puberty?hormones, reproduction, and development?but also power, pleasure, and how to be a decent human being.
Centering young people?s experiences of pressures and joy, risk and reward, and confusion and discovery, there are chapters on body autonomy, gender, consent, pornography, masturbation, stigma, boundaries, harassment,
trauma, and a lot more.
The puberty, anatomy, and reproduction chapters include trans, nonbinary, and intersex bodies and experience, and all of it takes place in our contemporary, media-saturated world (aka, there?s lots of smart phones and social media).
Racially and ethnically diverse, inclusive of cross-disability experience, You Know, Sex is a book for every kind of young person and every kind of family?essential for kids, everyone who knows a kid, and anyone who has ever been a kid.

Abstract
"Your home probably has some sort of pain relief medication, something to combat bouts of allergies, and maybe a few vitamins or supplements from the local health store. And then there are the prescribed medications, the ones you're taking daily and those that you take 'as needed'. But do you ever wonder how your medications work, what is the best time to take each, or how that pain relief tablet, those allergy meds, and prescription drugs interact when taken at the same time? Or how your newly prescribed antibiotic reacts with that glass of wine you had with dinner?
"Preventing Medication Errors at Home tells you what you need to know about those medications in your house and how each can improve your health and possibly cause harm. With drug therapy being a major part of conventional medical treatment, and so many medications available over-the-counter, tens of thousands of people in the United States alone die every year from side effects related to their diabetes, pain, depression and blood-thinning medications, and roughly one million people
are admitted to the hospital for drug-related issues. At least half of these disasters are preventable with proper awareness of how drugs work, how to take them properly, how to identify serious side effects, and how to avoid dangerous drug combinations.
"Dr. Simon Haroutounian presents an engaging, easy-to-read book to help you take responsibility for your medications. Learning how to ask the right questions before you start a new medication is likely to improve your health, and possibly save your life"--from the inside front cover
