Anxiety-Free Kids (2nd ed.) offers parents strategies that help children become happy and worry free, methods that relieve a child's excessive anxieties and phobias, and tools for fostering interaction and family-oriented solutions. Using a unique companion approach that offers two books in one-a practical, reader-friendly book for parents and a fun workbook for kids-this solutions-oriented guide utilizes the cognitive-behavioral approach to therapy and integrates the parent in the child's self-help process. Research has shown that if left untreated, children with anxiety disorders are at higher risk to perform poorly in school, to have less-developed social skills, and to be more vulnerable to substance abuse. Covering the six most commonly occurring anxiety disorders-generalized anxiety, separation anxiety, specific phobias, social phobias, panic disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder-this book gives kids and parents successful strategies for achieving relaxation, conquering worries, challenging faulty thinking patterns, developing positive self-talk, and facing one's fears.

The definitive, stand-alone companion book to the groundbreaking documentary—now with 50 plant-based recipes with full-color photos to help you start changing your health for the better We know there’s something terribly broken about our industrial food, medical, and pharmaceutical systems—even as medicine continues to advance, people in the Western world are getting sicker than ever. What’s going wrong, and what do we need to know to stop it? Can we avoid the leading causes of death, just by changing our diet? Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn, creators of the revolutionary documentary What the Health and the award-winning documentary Cowspiracy, take readers on a science-based tour of the hazards of eating animal products—and what happens when we stop. Journey with Andersen and Kuhn as they crisscross the country, talking to doctors, dietitians, public health advocates, whistle-blowers, and world class athletes, to uncover the truth behind the food we eat, and its stunning implications for our health. With the help of writer Eunice Wong, they empower eaters with knowledge: about the lethal entwining of the food, medical, and pharmaceutical industries, and about the corporate, legislative web that confuses the public and keep Americans chronically—and profitably—ill. What the Health takes readers on an adventure through this maze of misinformation with the same fresh, engaging approach that made their documentary so popular with viewers. Also included are 50 recipes to help you reclaim your life and health, including: Creamy Mac Winter Lentill and Pomegranate Salad Mom's Ultimage Vegan Chili Black Bean Fudgy Brownies PB&J Smoothie Baked Apple Crumble with Coconut Cream If the film was a peephole, then the book knocks down the door itself, with expanded interviews, extensive research, and new personal narratives. There's a health revolution brewing. What the Health is your invitation to join.

This volume explores the interrelations between bodily boundaries and vulnerabilities. It calls attention to the vulnerability of bodies as an essential aspect of having boundaries and being bound to other bodies. The volume advances an understanding of embodiment as the central aspect of subjectivity, its identity formation and its relations to others and the world. The essence of embodiment is what connects us with others and in equal measure what distinguishes us from others. The collection also addresses the centrality of the body to political and cultural activity, targeting the role and constitution of norms in the regulation of bodies, and the construction of spaces that bodies inhabit, in constructing national and cultural identities. It raises questions of how bodies and boundaries materialize in co-constitutive relation to one another; how bodies are situated and come to embody various bodies and intersections between different categories of identity and systems of value, meaning and knowledge; how the regulation and policing of bodies and the boundaries between them come to constitute bodies as being weak, strong, vulnerable or resilient and as having more or less fixed or fluid boundaries. The chapters in the volume all demonstrate how individual human bodies are formed in relation to each other as they are regulated and distinguished from one another by larger collective bodies of nature, culture, science, nation and state, as well as by other human or non-human animal bodies.
