Post-traumatic stress disorder by Matthew J Friedman( Visual )

While controversy flares over whether this anxiety-related condition even exists, two men are certain of it based on their own experiences. This program examines the disorder associated with anxiety symptoms experienced following the witnessing of a traumatic event. One man, who witnessed the deaths of his two teenage daughters, and another man shot in an IRA ambush, give highly personal accounts of the behavioral changes experienced as a result of the traumas.

Autism : diagnosis, causes, and treatments( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is it like for people with autism, living among others yet always, in a sense, living alone? And how do their parents cope, as they care for them? Built around several case studies, this program distinguishes between high- and low-functioning autism; illustrates structural and functional differences between autistic and non-autistic brains; considers genetics, neurological diseases, and immune system anomalies as possible contributory factors; and discusses associated conditions, such as mental retardation, epilepsy, and echolalia. Applied behavior analysis, the TEACCH system, multisensory stimulation, and dietary interventions are also touched upon
Voices of disposable people( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than 300 million men, women, and children are being forced to work in conditions of virtual enslavement. They have lost all control over their lives, and their survival rests in the hands of exploitative individuals and corporations. When they are no longer productive, they are simply discarded-broken, empty, and humiliated. This program goes around the world to document the stories of disposable people: sugarcane cutters in the Dominican Republic, bonded laborers in India, and migrant workers in Miami, U.S.A
