The headlines ring with stories of opioid addiction and overdose. Parents complain about their children’s screen addiction, law enforcement decries the flood of fentanyl, scores of Americans overdose and die daily, and teen alcohol poisoning and marijuana-induced psychosis rates continue to rise. Disabling depression and anxiety are diagnosed at alarming rates in families across the country. Now, more than ever, families struggle to live with, care for, and protect their family members suffering with addiction or mental illness. Kenneth Perlmutter, a California psychologist with 30-plus years in the field, has written Freedom from Family Dysfunction specifically for family members who love someone battling addiction or mental illness who want to break the cycles of codependency and relapse plaguing their dysfunctional systems. The combination of compelling vignettes, lively dialogues, and step-by-step instructions makes this guidebook an indispensable tool for the parents, partners, adult children, and the clinicians who treat them, to heal the powerlessness, pain, and impossibility of life with someone they’ve been trying to help, sometimes for decades. Perlmutter takes a systemic and inter-generational view, combining current knowledge with his deep personal experience of addiction and family dysfunction to guide readers toward understanding their systems, their positions in them, and the forces that keep things stuck. “Stress-Induced Impaired Coping (SIIC)” is the term he’s coined to describe his ground-breaking model of family system pathology and recovery. He invites families to see themselves not as dysfunctional, but as wounded, as they work toward connection, closeness, and the restoration of systemic mental wellness and sustainability. Best of all, the method works regardless of whether the one identified as “the problem” makes changes or not. Family members who take up Perlmutter’s method will: · ​create closeness by pursuing connection over being right · reject “tough love" · learn to communicate authentically and to set boundaries confidently and fairly · rebuild trust, authenticity and equality in family relationships · reduce chaos, anxiety and distress in the mind and in the home · shift the entire family system itself toward wellness

When Wayne Purinton was 19, feeling it was his patriotic duty, he decided to volunteer for service to his country. Soon after, Wayne-a gentle, innocent farm boy from Kansas who had never shot at anything bigger than a pheasant-was flung into the jungles of Vietnam and told to track down and kill the enemies of his country. The horrors he experienced-shooting Viet Cong until it became a dehumanizing, almost casual affair, watching his peers gunned down around him-pervaded, and after his return, he didn't speak of Vietnam again even to those closest to him.

Recounts the 1927 arrest and imprisonment of the sixth Habad-Lubavitcher Rebbe, Yosef Yitzhak Schneersohn, by Soviet authorities, based mainly on his autobiographical notes and supplemented by other sources. Relates how Schneersohn remained steadfast in observing religious practices during 19 days in Leningrad's Spalerno prison. Protest within the country and abroad apparently saved his life and succeeded in getting his sentence changed to ten years imprisonment in the North and then to three years internal exile in Kostroma. This, too, was commuted and he was allowed to emigrate to Riga. Relates his efforts to support an underground network of traditional Jewish education in a hostile environment and to encourage observant Jews in many parts of the USSR. The account stresses persecution from the Yevsektsia (Jewish section) of the Communist Party more than from the party itself, and the resistance of Schneersohn as a leader and inspirer of traditional Judaism in the face of opposition from without and within.

Young Gabe's is a story of heartache and jubilation. He's a child slave freed after the Civil War. He sets off to reunite himself with his mother who was sold before the war's end. "Come morning, the folks take to the road again, singing songs, telling stories, and dream-talking of the lives they're gonna live in freedom. And I follow, keeping my eyes open for my mama. Days pass into weeks, and one gray evening as Mr. Dark laid down his coat, I see a woman with a yellow scarf 'round her neck as bright as a star. I run up to grab her hand, saying, Mama?" Gabe's odyssey in search of his mother has an epic American quality, and Keith Shepherd's illustrations—influenced deeply by the narrative work of Thomas Hart Benton—fervently portray the struggle in Gabe's heroic quest. Selected as a 2012 Skipping Stones Honor Book and for the 2012 IRA Teacher's Choices Reading List. A. LaFaye hopes Walking Home to Rosie Lee will honor all those African American families who struggled to reunite at the end of the Civil War and will pay her respects to those who banded together through the long struggle for freedom. She is the author of the Scott O'Dell Award-winning novel Worth and lives in Tennessee with her daughter Adia. Keith Shepherd is a painter, graphic designer, and educator working out of Kansas City, MO. His painting "Sunday Best" is part of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum's permanent collection. He describes his work as being "motivated by family, religion, history, and music."
