A sharply honest and moving debut perfect for fans of The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Ask the Passengers. Riley Cavanaugh is many things: Punk rock. Snarky. Rebellious. And gender fluid. Some days Riley identifies as a boy, and others as a girl. But Riley isn't exactly out yet. And between starting a new school and having a congressman father running for reelection in über-conservative Orange County, the pressure—media and otherwise—is building up in Riley's life. On the advice of a therapist, Riley starts an anonymous blog to vent those pent-up feelings and tell the truth of what it's really like to be a gender fluid teenager. But just as Riley's starting to settle in at school—even developing feelings for a mysterious outcast—the blog goes viral, and an unnamed commenter discovers Riley's real identity, threatening exposure. And Riley must make a choice: walk away from what the blog has created—a lifeline, new friends, a cause to believe in—or stand up, come out, and risk everything. From debut author Jeff Garvin comes a powerful and uplifting portrait of a modern teen struggling with high school, relationships, and what it means to be a person.

A central argument of this book is that people avoid knowledge of how to solve social problems because solving these problems is threatening to them. Indeed, many people are threatened by the mere understanding of these problems, or more precisely, by a comprehensive understanding of their causes. Such an understanding is easy enough to come by, for researchers have compiled substantial bodies of evidence for the causes of all of our major social problems. And while the causes are often multiple and various, the matrix of variables in each case is usually no greater than that involved in numerous cognitive tasks that most people are quite capable of performing. Yet when it comes to social problems, many people fail to recognize the full array of causes, both proximal and distal, that combine to produce the social problem at issue. Instead, they attribute social problems to the supposedly flawed characters of certain segments of the population. Thus crime is seen as caused by immoral and violent people, the drug problem by self-indulgent people, poverty by lazy people, and so on. Simply put, people like to assume that social problems are caused by harmful behaviors and that these harmful behaviours are themselves caused by flawed character, period: Flawed Character leads to Harmful Behaviours leads to Social Problems. Social Symptoms of Identity Needs demonstrates how our ineffective and counterproductive responses to these problems - including the War on Drugs, the War on Crime, and the War on Terror - are themselves the result of the fact that we dont really want to solve them, because they serve as means for us, the general public, to maintain our own identities. It concludes by explaining social and cultural interventions that can prevent the social problems by preventing, repairing, or compensating for the identity problems that give rise to them.

In clear, understandable language and with helpful illustrations, this book explores every symptom of MS and discusses clinically tested and proven methods for the proper and effective management of each. No symptom is omitted: from spasticity, tremor, weakness, and fatigue to bladder, bowel, and sexual difficulties. An enlightening overview of the characteristics of MS, a useful glossary of common medical terms, and a list of helpful exercises round out this comprehensive coverage. This extensively revised fifth edition remains the definitive guide to managing the symptoms of MS, but also focuses on disease and personal management strategies. It is based on the management program developed at the oldest comprehensive MS Center in the United States, The Fairview MS Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota USA. The disease management section has been expanded to reflect the growth of our knowledge in this area. Newer ways to manage complex and routine symptoms are explored. The book has been substantially reorganized to better reflect the three areas of MS management - management of the disease, management of its symptoms, and management of issues relating to lifestyle and general wellness.

An insightful look at alienation in the modern world from the New York Times–bestselling author of The Art of Loving and Escape from Freedom. Social psychologist Erich Fromm observed the spread of alienation in the 1960s, arguing that humans who were once dynamic, creative beings were reduced to fixating on TV screens, emotionally paralyzed by anxieties over threats like nuclear war. Though we may stare at different devices and worry about other dangers today, his insights are as useful as ever, and allow us to gain perspective on the human condition. A collection of his writings on “New Humanism” and the need to reclaim our happiness and peace of mind, this is a thoughtful, fascinating overview of the past that shaped us, and the philosophies and practices that can ensure a better future, both for ourselves and for the world at large. Included are reflections on thinkers from Karl Marx to medieval Catholic mystic Meister Eckhart, as “Fromm’s large, keen mind and attractive, likable voice [strive] for heart as he asks himself the hardest questions of his day” (Kirkus Reviews). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

Migrant experiences accentuate general aspects of the human condition. Therefore, this volume explores migrant's movements not only as geographical movements from here to there but also as movements that constitute an embodied, cognitive, and existential experience of living "in between" or on the "borderlands" between differently figured life-worlds. Focusing on memories, nostalgia, the here-and-now social experiences of daily living, and the hopes and dreams for the future, the volume demonstrates how all interact in migrants' and refugees' experience of identity and quest for well-being.
