Following on from our brilliant April title, Dr Jane McGregor’s Coping with Aggressive Behaviour, Sheldon Press is delighted to reveal all the information you need to get to know our May releases.
First up is Understanding Hoarding by expert declutterer and Director of Hoarding Disorders UK CIC, Jo Cooke.
Compulsive hoarding can make life a misery, affecting health, well-being and lifestyle, and posing a significant risk of fire, illness, infestation and other dangers. Hoarding touches the whole family and, in extreme cases, impinges on basic freedoms, such as space in which to eat, do paperwork or even sleep. Packed with practical advice, Understanding Hoarding aims to help those with hoarding difficulties and those who live with them. It is also a useful resource for friends and professionals. Topics include: what hoarding is; what triggers hoarding; why an intensive clear-out doesn’t work; decluttering tips and tricks; how to help a hoarder; where your stuff goes; therapies and resources; what the professionals say; hoarders; stories.
The hoarder’s journey can be a long and complex one but, in this useful book, expert Jo Cooke says that it is possible to take control of your life and your stuff.
Our second May release is Autism and Asperger Syndrome in Adults by Dr Luke Beardon.
Autism is still persistently viewed as a disorder or impairment, but this concept needs to be challenged. Written by a university lecturer with decades of experience in the field, this helpful book presents an up-to-date overview of autism and Asperger Syndrome. Dr Luke Beardon examines aspects of adult life, including further and higher education, employment, dating and parenthood, and what they mean for autistic people. Topics include: terminology and what’s preferred; diagnosis and related issues; tips for undiagnosed adults; understanding the impact of autism on the individual; sensory issues; transition into adulthood; friendships and intimate relationships; the criminal justice system – what happens when autistic people break the law.
In this sensitive and insightful book, Dr Luke Beardon tackles myths and stereotypes about autism, and clearly explains its implications in adulthood.
Our may releases are out now and available to buy from Books etc.
