Childhoods : growing up in Aotearoa New Zealand( )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Children are citizens with autonomy and rights identified by international agencies and United Nations conventions, but these rights are not readily enforceable. Some of the worst levels of child poverty and poor health in the OECD, as well as exceptionally high child suicide rates, exist in Aotearoa New Zealand today. More than a quarter of children are experiencing a childhood of hardship and deprivation in a context of high levels of inequality. Maori children face particular challenges. In a country that characterises itself as 'a good place to bring up children', this is of major concern. The essays in this book are by leading researchers from several disciplines and focus on all of our children and young people, exploring such topics as the environment (economic, social and natural), social justice, children's voices and rights, the identity issues they experience and the impact of rapid societal change. What children themselves have to say is insightful and often deeply moving
Children and their urban environment : changing worlds by Claire Freeman( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In our fast-changing urban world, the impacts of social and environmental change on children are often overlooked. Children and their Urban Environment examines these impacts in detail, looking at the key activities, spaces and experiences children have and how these can be managed to ensure that children benefit from change. The authors highlight the importance of planners, architects and housing professionals in creating positive environments for children and involving them in the planning process. They argue that children's lives are becoming simultaneously both richer and more deprived, and that, despite apparently increasing wealth, disparities between children are increasing further. Each chapter includes international examples of good practice and policy innovations for redressing the balance in favour of child supportive environments. The book seeks to embrace childhood as a time of freedom, social engagement and environmental adventure and to encourage creation of environments that better meet the needs of children. The authors argue that in doing so, we will build more sustainable neighbourhoods, cities and societies for the future."--Publisher description
Planning with children for better communities : the challenge to professionals by Claire Freeman( )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Planning with children for better communities is important reading for local authority planners and policy makers, project workers, community development workers, children's rights officers, youth workers, play workers and students of social and community work and politics. It should also be read by those people in the voluntary and community sector concerned with children's issues relating to planning and community development."--BOOK JACKET
Living together : towards inclusive communities in New Zealand( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do we develop inclusive, engaged and robust communities? In this book, experts in community planning explore some of the challenges, strategies and solutions. Many issues are considered, including how to provide for the needs of specific groups - whether migrant, the young, elderly or indigenous, communities with local and central government, and the development of online communities and the influence of feminism
Living space : towards sustainable settlements in New Zealand( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Risk, Protection, Provision and Policy( )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume provides an overview of recent research (within geography and allied disciplines) around the overarching concept of 'safe and accessible places of encounter'. It develops according to three interrelated themes. The first part of the volume examines several of the many spaces children use and that are relevant to the geographies of children and young people including: the city centre and inner city high rise housing, urban versus suburban and rural spaces, local neighbourhoods, the 'home' (for particular groups of children and young people such as child domestic workers in Bangladesh), school playgrounds, services (such as domestic violence shelters), outdoor natural spaces, and "life space" (where music and arts are presented in a non-political space in Bosnia-Herzegovina). The second part examines how notions of safety, protection and risk relate to providing children and young people with good life chances, and accessible spaces that enhance or reduce well-being. This middle section emphasises the debate about risk and the need to balance risk and safety/protection. The final part focuses on policy that builds on the provision/identification of spaces, safety/protection and risk. The emphasis is on how policy at different levels (international-national-local-family) helps provide better spaces of encounter and enhances life chances for children and young people. This section also recognises the different levels of policy making associated with different parts of the world and different regional settings. The gap between policy intentions and outcomes is recognised (e.g Cambodia's policies on orphanage tourism). The policy section includes contributions that relate to planning, education, migration, architecture, health, connection and citizenship, and sustainability. It provides insights into how professionals working in these fields can, through policy, enhance children's and young people's lived experiences and living environments.p>
Head space : a handbook on brain injury by Claire Freeman( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ninety people a day in New Zealand are affected by brain injury in some form and many are the result of concussion. This represents approximately between 24,000 and 33,000 people every year. The most challenging aspect of a brain injury is that it is a hidden injury and depending on the severity means that the difficulties experienced by individuals and those around them are not always obvious to the public in general. Head Space is a unique manual specifically designed to be used by people with a brain injury or stroke. Considerable care has been taken regarding the graphics, font, content, level of detail and overall layout so that readers receive the necessary comprehensive information in a manner that is understandable and not overwhelming. The handbook has been the result of over four years' research and development by New Zealand Spinal Trust staff, Dr Bernadette Cassidy and Claire Freeman and through collaboration with the Brain Injury Association Canterbury/West Coast), staff of the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Service at Burwood. When a person is recovering from a brain injury, they and their families/whanau need access to a wide range of information and resources - this handbook is the first step in providing that information in a format that is easy to understand. Having the appropriate information about brain injury and the impact it has on a person can help remove the fear and stress associated with it."--Publisher's description

Sand colic in a 4 year-old Quarter Horse gelding by Claire Freeman( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The patient, a four year-old Quarter Horse gelding, presented with a week-long history of mild, persistent colic responsive to analgesic therapy. Physical examination was unremarkable, and both gastrointestinal and non-gastrointestinal differential diagnoses for chronic colic were investigated. Abdominal radiographs revealed a sand accumulation in the patient's cranioventral abdomen, leading to a diagnosis of sand colic. Although abdominal radiographs are considered the most useful diagnostic tool for sand colic, a well-established imaging protocol for evaluating abdominal radiographs for sand does not exist. The amount and clinical significance of sand accumulations is therefore difficult to determine. The patient was treated with psyllium hydrophila mucilloid administered via nasogastric tube every 24 hours for a total of four treatments. While hospitalized, the patient's clinical signs improved, and the gelding has shown no signs of colic since discharge. (Abstract.)

Children, Nature and Cities by Claire Freeman( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"That children need nature for health and well-being is widely accepted, but what type of nature? Specifically, what type of nature is not only necessary but realistically available in the complex and rapidly changing worlds that children currently live in?This book examines child-nature definitions through two related concepts: the need for connecting to nature and the processes by which opportunities for such contact can be enhanced. This book analyses the available nature from a scientific perspective of habitats, species and environments, together with the role of planning, to identify how children in cities can and do connect with nature. This book challenges the notion of a universal child and childhood by recognizing childrens diverse life worlds and experiences which guides them into different and complex ways of interacting with the natural world. Unfortunately not all children have the freedom to access the nature that is present in the cities where they live. This book addresses the challenge of designing biodiverse cities in which nature is readily accessible to children."--Provided by publisher
