            No Visible Bruises: What we don't know about domestic violence can kill us

            No Visible Bruises: What we don't know about domestic violence can kill us (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            An award-winning journalist's exploration of the domestic violence epidemic, and how to combat it. An average of 137 women are killed by familial violence across the globe every day. In the UK alone, two women die each week at the hands of their partners, and in the US domestic v...iolence homicides have risen by 32% since 2017. The WHO deems it a 'global epidemic'. Yet public understanding of this urgent problem remains catastrophically low. Journalist Rachel Louise Snyder was no exception. Despite years of experience reporting on international conflicts, when it came to violence in the domestic sphere, she believed all the common assumptions- that it was a fate for the unlucky few, a matter of bad choices and cruel environments. That if things were dire enough, victims would leave. That violence inside the home was private. And, perhaps most of all, that unless you stand at the receiving end of a punch, it has nothing to do with you. All this changed when Snyder began talking to the victims and perpetrators whose stories she tells in this book. Fearlessly reporting from the frontlines of the epidemic, in No Visible Bruises she interviews men who have murdered their families, women who have nearly been murdered, and people who have grown up besieged by familial aggression, painting a vivid and nuanced picture of its reality. She talks to experts in violence prevention and law enforcement, revealing how domestic abuse has its roots in our education, economic, health, and justice systems, and how by tackling these origins we can render it preventable.

            Our understanding of what makes a family has undergone a revolution in the last few decades, from same-sex parenthood to surrogacy and IVF. But what has the impact been on children? In We Are Family, Professor Susan Golombok visits lesbian mothers, gay fathers, single parents, co...-parents, trans parents, surrogates, and donors, and, more importantly, their children, to find out if they are as well-adjusted, happy, and emotionally stable as children from traditional nuclear families. And she discovers that the answer is yes - and sometimes even more so. Susan's work at the Centre for Family Research at Cambridge proves that any family set-up can provide a loving, secure home for a child - although, inevitably, the children from these families will often face prejudiced attitudes from others. Since the 1970s, when she was first drawn to this area of research after reading about lesbian mothers whose children were being removed from their care, Susan has worked tirelessly to challenge outdated attitudes and prevent families being split up for no good reason. This book tells the stories of those families - their struggles and their triumphs - while celebrating love and family in all its wonderful variations.

            Falling somewhere between childhood and adulthood, 'Youth' is a key period of transition. It can be difficult to define and make sense of this period in one's life. However it is categorised, young people face a number of challenges and issues growing up in today's world.

            Strange Situation: a mother's journey into the science of attachment (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            A full-scale investigation of the controversial and often misunderstood science of attachment theory, inspired by the author's own experience as a parent and daughter. When award-winning editor, writer, researcher, and longtime Zen student Bethany Saltman gave birth to her daught...er, Azalea, she felt like there was something 'off' about her experience. She knew she loved her daughter, but would oftentimes be angry, short on patience, even unkind. She went in search of the reasons why, and how to better understand herself, her daughter, and their relationship. With the intensity of her spiritual pursuits, Saltman launched a broad inquiry into the science of attachment, a field of developmental psychology that answers the question of why - from an evolutionary point of view - love exists between parents and children. Specifically, Saltman focused on the data from a famous laboratory procedure, the 'Strange Situation', used around the world by scientists as the gold standard for measuring attachment security. A child and caregiver enter a room with two chairs and ordinary toys. Through a series of orchestrated comings and goings, the nature of the pair's relationship is revealed. What Saltman saw by studying the Strange Situation is that love is unbreakable. Each and every one of us - including her - is built for it. In this intimate, rigorous, and deeply personal rendering, Saltman boldly asks science to answer to love, and discovers that while our behaviour as parents is important, attachment research insists that what matters most is the way we think about our attachments, transmitted mind to mind from generation to generation. This is excellent news. After all, as Saltman's decades of Zen practice tell her and her readers, the one thing completely within our power to change is our minds. Readers will also be given the tools with which to interpret and better understand their own relationships. More than just a memoir or biography, Strange Situation offers fresh insi
