The Basis for the Movie Mean Girls
PARENTS CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN GIRL WORLD
Do you feel as though your adolescent daughter exists in a different world, speaking a different language and living by different laws? She does.
This groundbreaking book takes you inside the secret world of girls' friendships, translating and decoding them, so parents can better understand and help their daughters navigate through these crucial years. Rosalind Wiseman has spent more than a decade listening to thousands of girls talk about the powerful role cliques play in shaping what they wear and say, how they feel about school, how they respond to boys, and how they feel about themselves. In this candid and insightful book, Wiseman discusses:
- Queen Bees, Wannabes, Targets, Torn Bystanders, and others: how to tell what role your daughter plays and help her be herself
- Girls' power plays, from birthday invitations to cafeteria seating arrangements and illicit parties, and how to handle them
- Good popularity and bad popularity: how cliques bear on every situation
- Hip Parents, Best-Friend Parents, Pushover Parents, and others: examine your own parenting style, Check Your Baggage, and identify how your own background and biases affect how you relate to your daughter
- Related movies, books, websites, and organizations: a carefully annotated resources section provides opportunities to follow up on your own and with your daughter
Enlivened with the voices of dozens of girls and parents and a welcome sense of humor, Queen Bees and Wannabes is compelling reading for parents and daughters alike. A conversation piece and a reference guide, it offers the tools you need to help your daughter feel empowered and make smarter choices.

Exploring the ways that clients' lives, and family therapy itself, are constrained by larger forces of racial, cultural, sexual, and class-based inequality, this groundbreaking volume expands the boundaries of the field and works toward truly inclusive clinical practice. Editor Monica McGoldrick--whose earlier ETHNICITY AND FAMILY THERAPY provides in-depth portraits of the family systems of more than 40 ethnic groups--here takes up vital cultural issues that cut across all ethnicities. Integrating theoretical exposition, case vignettes, and evocative autobiographical narratives, contributors offer concrete suggestions for improving family therapy training and developing services that minority families may experience as more relevant to their lives.

Spinoza (USED)

$22.00
More Info

Renowned for his metaphysics, Spinoza made significant contributions to understanding the human mind, the emotions, moral philosophy, and political philosophy.
Beginning with an overview of Spinoza's life, Michael Della Rocca carefully unpacks and explains Spinoza's philosophy: his metaphysics of substance and argument at the center of his whole system that God is the sole independent substance; his account of the human mind and its relation to the body; his theory that human beings tend towards self-preservation and his most famous work, the Ethics, including the problem of free will; and his writings on the state, religion and scripture.

Della Rocca concludes with a chapter on Spinoza's legacy and how modern philosophers, Hume, Hegel, and Nietzsche, responded to Spinoza's challenge. Ideal for those coming to Spinoza for the first time as well as those already acquainted with his thought, Spinoza is essential reading for anyone studying philosophy.

We share with our brothers and sisters our earliest memories, our parents, our home, our cultural heritage and its values. How has that "accidental bond, " formed at birth and tested in our childhood, shaped us as adults? Drawing on detailed interviews with eight sets of adult siblings and integrating research from leading psychologists and social scientists, journalist Susan Scarf Merrell reveals that these relationships forged in childhood influence our lives in often unsuspected and startling ways. No matter what kind of relationships we now have with our siblings - close or distant, loving or hostile - our histories with them exert a profound effect on our current relationships with lovers, friends, coworkers, even our own children. Understanding that bond can give us fresh insights into the adults we have become.
