Fifty One Moves
It is shocking that although just one per cent of children are taken into care by local authorities, almost 30 per cent of prisoners have been in care. Ben Ashcrofts heart-rending account of abandonment, loneliness and rejection in family life, the care system and beyond begins at age nine and ends with him turning his life around after being moved from pillar to post, crime, drugs, going missing and custody. Ten years on, he works to motivate young people from similar backgrounds to believe that they can do the same; that whatever life throws at them they should Never, ever, give up. It is also a warning to parents, professionals and carers alike: to listen to what young people have to say, to make time for and reassure them and to recognise the often small but important things that make a difference in the bewildering world of growing-up. Challenges the core concepts we have as members of society, or indeed as child care professionals: Dr Peter McParlin (from the Foreword). The book was described as inspirational, powerful, emotional, compelling and required reading for anyone interested in the care system when released on Kindle, e.g. An inspiring and moving account of the trauma and distress caused to a young boy by his family and our care system: Sarah A very raw book but this only adds to the sense of passion and honesty with which it is written: Fiona Sorsby, Bingley, West Yorkshire.

On a souvent parlé du harcèlement sexuel dans la vie professionnelle en oubliant qu'il n'était qu'une forme de violence parmi d'autres. Ce livre - best-seller en Allemagne et dans les pays nordiques - révèle l'étendue d'un fléau bien plus vaste. De nombreux salariés sont, sans raison valable, victimes de leurs collègues, de leurs supérieurs hiérarchiques, parfois même de leurs subordonnés coalisés contre eux : on les harcèle, on les met en quarantaine, on les humilie, on tente de les briser par tous les moyens. On estime, en France, à un million environ le nombre de personnes soumises, au mobbing. Les conséquences pour la victime sont très graves (effondrement psychologique, perte de son emploi et de sa crédibilité, parfois suicide), mais le prix que paye la société est également énorme, puisqu'une seule victime suédoise, finalement réduite à l'invalidité, aura coûté plus de 3 500 000 francs ! Comment identifier le mobbing ? Comment le combattre ? Quels sont les recours dont dispose le salarié ? En répondant à ces questions, H. Leymann en appelle à la constitution concrète d'une véritable éthique professionnelle.
Research on work related stress
Stress at work is a priority issue of the European Agency of Safety and Health at Work. The report addresses the following issues and questions: the nature of stress at work; stress management strategies; does work stress affect health and well-being and, if so, how?; the implications of existing research for the management of work-related stress. This report examines the difficulties involved in placing work stress in the context of other life stress factors. It is stated that work stress is a current and future health and safety issue, and, as such, should be dealt with in the same logical and systematic way as other health and safety issues.

The Body Economic
Recessions can hurt . . . but austerity kills In The Body Economic, Dr. David Stuckler and Dr. Sanjay Basu provide hard evidence to reveal the tragic human toll of the ongoing recession worldwide. From a rise in alcoholism in the UK to scores of suicides in California to HIV outbreaks and abandoned children in Greece, the book tells the stories of people who were not bailed out and who are now bearing the brunt of the 2007 stock-market crash. The authors argue that this suffering is not inevitable. Based on a decade of groundbreaking research stretched across five continents, The Body Economic shows how key public health decisions can affect the impact of financial crises for better or for worse. Urgent and provocative, The Body Economic draws attention to a growing area of "recession medicine." It speaks to a hopeful audience, not only providing evidence of the realities of recession and illness but also presenting illuminating case studies of resilience and creative response to difficult conditions. The authors show that recession can provide opportunities to tackle long-standing public-health problems in surprising new ways, paving the way for a happier and healthier future.
