The #1 New York Times–bestselling author and child abuse survivor reveals the challenges that he still faces as an adult, as a husband, and as a father. In the blockbuster autobiography A Child Called “It”, Dave Pelzer shared the story of his childhood—one of the most dramatic and extreme stories of child abuse ever prosecuted in the state of California. As a child, Pelzer was beaten, starved, and abused both emotionally and physically by his alcoholic and mentally unstable mother. As a man, Pelzer went on to have love, happiness, a fulfilling career, and a family of his own. To many, Pelzer seemed to have found his happy ending. But for a child abuse survivor, living a normal adult life carries challenges and complications above and beyond those faced by most people. This book, the fifth in Pelzer’s nonfiction series, provides an honest and courageous look at the difficulties inherent in marriage, parenthood, work, and life from the perspective of someone who survived horrific physical and emotional terrors as a child—and who seeks to meet the responsibilities and complications of adult life with love, strength, and an open heart.

Self-help is big business, but alas, not always a scientific one. Self-help books, websites, and movies abound and are important sources of psychological advice for millions of Americans. But how can you sift through them to find the ones that work? Self-Help That Works is an indispensable guide that enables readers to identify effective self-help materials and distinguish them from those that are potentially misleading or even harmful. Six scientist-practitioners bring careful research, expertise, and a dozen national studies to the task of choosing and recommending self-help resources. Designed for both laypersons and mental-health professionals, this book critically reviews multiple types of self-help resources, from books and autobiographies to films, online programs, support groups, and websites, for 41 different behavioral disorders and life challenges. The revised edition of this award-winning book now features online self-help resources, expanded content, and new chapters focusing on autism, bullying, chronic pain, GLB issues, happiness, and nonchemical addictions. Each chapter updates the self-help resources launched since the previous edition and expands the material. The final chapters provide key strategies for consumers evaluating self-help as well as for professionals integrating self-help into treatment. All told, this updated edition of Self-Help that Works evaluates more than 2,000 self-help resources and brings together the collective wisdom of nearly 5,000 mental health professionals. Whether seeking self-help for yourself, loved ones, or patients, this is the go-to, research-based guide with the best advice on what works.

The remarkable trilogy from SUNDAY TIMES No.1 Bestseller Dave Pelzer - now in one volume. A CHILD CALLED 'IT' is Dave Pelzer's story of a child beaten and starved by his emotionally unstable, alcoholic mother: a mother who played torturous, unpredictable games that left one of her three sons nearly dead. Dave was no longer considered a son, or a boy, but an 'it'. His bed was an old army cot in the basement and when he was allowed food it was scraps from the dogs' bowl. Throughout, Dave kept alive the dream of finding a family who would love and care for him. THE LOST BOY: the harrowing but ultimately uplifting true story of Dave's journey through the foster-care system in search of a family who will love him. A MAN NAMED DAVE: the gripping conclusion to this inspirational trilogy. With extraordinary generosity of spirit, Dave takes us on a journey into his past. At last he confronts his father and ultimately his mother. Finally, Dave finds the courage to break the chains of the past and learn to love, trust and live for the future.

Boost the Engagement and Achievement of Adolescent Readers Building Academic Literacy: Lessons from Reading Apprenticeship Classrooms, Grades 6—12, features pieces by five middle and high school teachers working with the Reading Apprenticeship instructional framework introduced in Reading for Understanding (Schoenbach et al., Jossey-Bass, 1999). Filled with instructional tips, lesson plans, and curriculum resources, this book offers guidance on conducting Academic Literacy courses using readings from the companion student book–Building Academic Literacy: An Anthology for Reading Apprenticeship (Fielding and Schoenbach, Jossey-Bass, 2003). It can serve as an excellent resource for any content area teacher, grades 6—12, looking for classroom-based ideas to motivate adolescents in becoming more active, engaged and strategic readers. "Whenever we read books about teaching, we ask ourselves, ‘But what does that look like in the classroom?’ Building Academic Literacy: Lessons from Reading Apprenticeship Classrooms answers the question of what ‘Academic Literacy’ is, why it matters, and how teachers can develop these key intellectual habits in their students. This book, and its companion anthology, provide me the guidance and resources that I need." –Jim Burke, author, The Reader’s Handbook and The English Teacher’s Companion "Following close upon the heels of the widely acclaimed book Reading for Understanding, this new two-volume companion set, Building Academic Literacy: An Anthology for Reading Apprenticeship and Building Academic Literacy: Lessons from Reading Apprenticeship Classrooms, is certain to propel Academic Literacy as a course of study into increasingly more middle and high school classrooms." –Donna Alvermann, professor of education, University of Georgia and past president, International Reading Association

These ten highly inventive stories demonstrate Louis Phillips's virtuoso handling of both traditional and unconventional ways of making fiction. His stories are lean, without wasted effort or awkward moves. Infused with a kind of seismic energy, all of the stories in this debut collection twist, turn, curve, backtrack upon themselves, doing what they can to entertain and torment. In "Snakes," while Billy the Kid roams the New Mexico countryside, a side show of circus freaks engages in a bloodbath, an orgiastic slaughtering of hundreds of rattlesnakes; a writer down on his luck plays a desperate psychological game with his agent in "The House Wherein I Dwell"; in the title story, a man on his way to Florida to rescue his parents ends up in a river searching for a wooden leg; and in "Merite des Femmes," during a shared taxi ride from the airport into the city at two A.M., a woman spins a quirky tale about a man's bizarre choice of bookbinding material. Full of verbal wit and energy, these stories showcase Louis Phillips's narrative fecundity and his dazzling range of voices, styles, and themes.

Dave Pelzer's father never intervened as his mother abused him with shocking brutality. She told her son she could kill him any time she wanted to -- and nearly did. But even years after he was rescued, Dave felt rootless and awkward, an outcast haunted by memories of his years of abuse. Dave's dramatic reunion with his dying father and the shocking confrontation with his mother -- along with the discovery of her secret past -- led to his ultimate calling as a mentor to others struggling with personal hardships. Dave was finally able to break the chains of his past, learning to trust, to love, and to live.
