Painful partings : divorce and its aftermath by Lita Linzer Schwartz( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For those who have made the difficult decision to end their marriage, emotional divorce can be as difficult to achieve as legal divorce. This timely and compassionate book shows couples, their families, and their therapists how best to navigate the bumpy terrain of the road to divorce." "The book covers emerging alternatives to litigation - like mediation, and looks at sensitive legal matters, such as physical and emotional abuse and child custody. It also examines timely issues like fathers' rights, mid-life divorce, and what happens when one partner exits a marriage in order to lead a homosexual lifestyle." "Painful Partings shows marriage and family therapists how to help clients marshal their energies toward constructive closure, rather than destructive resolution. Essential reading for therapists who work with divorced and divorcing families, the book is also a compassionate guide for spouses and parents negotiating the painful process of divorce."--Jacket

Endangered children : neonaticide, infanticide, filicide by Lita Linzer Schwartz( Book )

"Endangered Children: Neonaticide, Infanticide, and Filicide provides a psychological, sociological, and criminological perspectives of these acts, as the authors answer the many questions that arise from these crimes." "With an emphasis on neonaticide in terms of motives, alternatives, defenses offered, and penalties imposed, this book will be of interest to everyone from social workers to attorneys. A secondary area of focus is infanticide and filicide, again with attention paid to motives, defenses, and legal outcomes. Particular attention is paid to psychological/psychiatric defenses that have been offered and their impact as reported in law review articles and elsewhere." "This text will examine the mothers of the victims in terms of background and motives along with the role, if any, mental illness plays in the deaths of their children."--Jacket

"Psychologists are increasingly sought by the media for insights into national events and social issues and for guidance in dealing with psychological disorders and common interpersonal problems. This opportunity offers psychologists a credible, far-reaching, and inexpensive way to educate millions of Americans about psychological findings and knowledge. The challenge is to do this in an ethically and professionally responsible manner while still being responsive to unique pressures under which the media representatives operate. This volume provides practical guidance in doing just that in working with print, radio, and television media."--Jacket
Why give "gifts" to the gifted? : investing in a national resource by Lita Linzer Schwartz( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book looks at gifted and talented students from a "national resource" point of view. The first chapter establishes the basic premise that gifted and talented children represent a significant resource to any nation and that it is profitable to the nation to invest in their development and education. Subsequent chapters describe types of giftedness, characteristics of gifted youth, underidentified gifted populations (and techniques for identifying them), and the role of adults in fostering giftedness and providing needed opportunities. One chapter is devoted to the special case of gifted females. One chapter addresses nine categories of options available for enhancing the educational experiences of gifted students and explains how these options can be modified and combined to meet the needs of a specific school district and its gifted students. A chapter on "follow-up" studies of gifted and talented students suggests certain commonalities in personal qualities among the "successful" gifted and talented as well as the kinds of activities that appear to promote achievement and maintain a positive self-concept. (Contains approximately 230 references.) (Db)

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What if you were an adopted child and someone tried to remove you from the family you had grown to love? In the past twenty years, changes in laws, judicial decisions, social welfare practices, and the availability of American children for adoption have led to an increase in disrupted adoptions. When Adoptions Go Wrong: Psychological and Legal Issues of Adoption Disruption examines the psychological and forensic aspects of adoption with an emphasis on how negative events can affect children and the families that choose to adopt them - and how you can prevent those events from happening."--Jacket
Child homicide : parents who kill by Lita Linzer Schwartz( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From governments that enact population-limiting legislation or commit wholesale neonaticide, to families who purposely allow a weak, infirm, or unfavorably gendered infant to perish rather than expend limited resources, neonaticide, infanticide, and filicide are practiced on every continent and by every level of cultural complexity." "This book examines the crime of neonaticide from all angles including historical, cultural, psychological, and legal. The book details child homicide in its many forms, such as shaken baby syndrome and Munchausen by Proxy as well as the differing circumstances involved in infanticide and filicide. Unlike many books on the subject, it investigates the behavior of the father - responsible in roughly 75 percent of these cases - whether aggressive, complicit, or merely absent, and his ultimate culpability under the law."--Jacket
