Keine andere Autorin hat über die Jahrzehnte hin den Rassenkonflikt in Amerika so konsequent und leidenschaftlich beschrieben wie die Literaturnobelpreisträgerin Toni Morrison. "Gott, hilf dem Kind" setzt den mit "Jazz" begonnenen Zyklus fort, in dem Morrison die Situation der Schwarzen in den USA beleuchtet. Ein weiterer großer Roman der im Kampf gegen Rassismus engagierten Autorin. Lula Ann ist ein so tiefschwarzes Baby, dass ihre Mutter Sweetness bei der Geburt fast zu Tode erschrickt und der Vater die junge Familie auf der Stelle verlässt, weil er nicht glauben kann, dass dieses Kind von ihm ist. Sweetness erzieht Lula Ann zu Gehorsam und Unterwürfigkeit, nur nicht auffallen, aus Angst vor rassistischen Angriffen. Doch die heranwachsende Tochter sträubt sich gegen die verordnete Angepasstheit. Sie ändert ihren Namen, in Bride, kleidet sich in provokant strahlendes Weiß, macht Karriere bei einer Kosmetikfirma, verliebt sich in einen geheimnisvollen Mann und befreit sich auf ihre Weise von der Vergangenheit. Zwei starke Frauen, zwei verschiedene Lebensentwürfe, in dem Versuch, sich zu schützen und gleichzeitig zu behaupten. Ein Roman, der zur Weltliteratur gehört.

In recent years considerable attention has been paid to the subject of abuse in childhood. Less attention has been paid to what happens to the vast number of women and men who have reached adulthood with this experience haunting them. Moira Walker overviews the experience and its implications, dealing with physical, sexual and psychological abuse. An essential part of the content is based on interviews with survivors of child abuse, voicing their views on the effects of the experience and the effectiveness of the help offered. At the same time Surviving Secrets seeks to understand the context in which abuse takes place, the society which itself contains and sustains abuse at various levels. It is a moving account of the experience and effects of childhood abuse and a handbook for those in the caring professions, in voluntary organizations and elsewhere who are helping survivors of abuse.

The book attempts to provide the essential information that postgraduates throughout India need to capture to effectively address the health problems that our children and youth may face in the times to come. Our objective is to be comprehensive yet concise and reader friendly, embracing both the new advances in science as well as the time-honored art of pediatric practice. Both Indian and international experts in respective fields have provided the details which have been further scrutinized for exposition and usefulness to pediatric postgraduates by a chosen team of eminent academicians. We have liberally included tables, line diagrams, images, clinical photographs, illustrative figures, flowcharts and algorithms in the main text. The book is divided in 10 major Parts and further arranged into 51 Sections to cover all aspects of postgraduate pediatric curriculum. Themes which have major public health relevance for India are extensively covered. It is almost impossible to cover all pediatric problems with the same degree of detail and hence a careful balance has been made in the details of description of diseases and their management to the needs of the students, and to keep the book to a manageable size. Take-home messages are provided at the end of each chapter. Selected recent references, mostly leading articles, reviews and position statements, are provided for more detailed information if desired by the student or the teacher.

I Can Begin Again will take you into the complex and perplexing mind of an adult who bears the scars of child abuse. It was the voices of abused children both past, present, and yet to come who beckoned the author to tell her own story of childhood sexual abuse. For thirty years God would not let her rest until she finally listened and obeyed His call on her life to reach out and help others who are stuck in the grips of this devastating affliction. This very personal story will help the adult, who was abused as a child, to understand who they are and why they behave the way they do. It will prove that they do not have to remain stuck in their pain and it will show them how to reclaim the power that was stolen from them as a precious, innocent child. This revealing account will encourage those who have endured any type of abuse to believe they can do more than just survive . . . they can begin life again! The author also brings insights to those of you who live with one who has been wounded by child abuse.

Grappling with theological issues raised by abuse, this book argues that the Church should be challenged, and ministered to, by survivors. Paying careful attention to her interviews with Christian women survivors, Shooter finds that through painful experiences of transformation they have surprisingly become potential agents of transformation for others. Shooter brings the survivors' narratives into dialogue with the story of Job and with medieval mystic Marguerite Porete's spirituality of 'annihilation'. Culminating in an engagement with contemporary feminist theology concerning power and powerlessness, there emerges a set of principles for authentic community spirituality which crosses boundaries with God, supports appropriate human boundaries and, crucially, listens attentively. Appealing to Church leaders, students, practitioners and practical theologians, this book offers a creative and ethical theological enquiry as well as some spiritual anchor points for survivors.

Theresa Westbrook is genuine and I am pleased to work together for the purposes of ending child abuse, helping victims and positively influencing troubled youth.” John Borgstedt * * * The Advocates ...

Das Drama des begabten Kindes und die Suche nach dem wahren Selbst

Gemeinsame Leitthemen der in diesem Band enthaltenen drei Studien sind die Ursprünge des Selbstverlustes und Wege der Selbstfindung. Das Drama des begabten, das heißt sensiblen, wachen Kindes besteht darin, daß es schon früh Bedürfnisse seiner Eltern spürt und sich ihnen anpaßt, indem es lernt, seine intensivsten, aber unerwünschten Gefühle nicht zu fühlen. Obwohl diese "verpönten" Gefühle später nicht immer vermieden werden können, bleiben sie doch abgespalten, das heißt: Der vitalste Teil des wahren Selbst wird nicht in die Persönlichkeit integriert. Das führt zu emotionaler Verunsicherung und Verarmung (Selbstverlust), die sich in der Depression ausdrücken oder aber in der Grandiosität abgewehrt werden. Die angeführten Beispiele sensibilisieren für das nicht artikulierte, hinter Idealisierungen verborgene Leiden des Kindes wie auch für die Tragik der nicht verfügbaren Eltern, die einst selbst verfügbare Kinder gewesen sind.

In the highly anticipated sequel to her New York Times bestseller Etched in Sand, Regina Calcaterra pairs with her youngest sister Rosie to tell Rosie’s harrowing, yet ultimately triumphant, story of childhood abuse and survival. They were five kids with five different fathers and an alcoholic mother who left them to fend for themselves for weeks at a time. Yet through it all they had each other. Rosie, the youngest, is fawned over and shielded by her older sister, Regina. Their mother, Cookie, blows in and out of their lives “like a hurricane, blind and uncaring to everything in her path.” But when Regina discloses the truth about her abusive mother to her social worker, she is separated from her younger siblings Norman and Rosie. And as Rosie discovers after Cookie kidnaps her from foster care, the one thing worse than being abandoned by her mother is living in Cookie’s presence. Beaten physically, abused emotionally, and forced to labor at the farm where Cookie settles in Idaho, Rosie refuses to give in. Like her sister Regina, Rosie has an unfathomable strength in the face of unimaginable hardship—enough to propel her out of Idaho and out of a nightmare. Filled with maturity and grace, Rosie’s memoir continues the compelling story begun in Etched in Sand—a shocking yet profoundly moving testament to sisterhood and indomitable courage.
