D passer l autisme avec la m thode Son Rise
En France, 650 000 personnes sont atteintes d'un trouble du spectre de l’autisme. 8 000 enfants autistes naissent chaque année, ce qui représente 1 personne sur 150. L'auteur de cet ouvrage, Raun Kaufman, a été diagnostiqué autiste à l’âge de 2 ans, mais a perdu toute trace de cette affection pourtant réputée « incurable ». Son livre est un manuel qui rend compte d’une méthode de prise en charge précoce de l’autisme. Cette dernière repose sur une recherche d’interaction qui part exclusivement de ce que fait l’enfant ou de ce qu’il aime faire, sans jamais lui opposer un jugement normalisant. Raun Kaufman nous invite à écouter l’enfant, à se mettre à sa place, et à toujours partir du principe que les comportements problématiques de ces enfants sont également des tentatives pour préserver leur équilibre (sensoriel, moteur, cognitif) dans un monde qui ne leur est pas adapté. Car pour notre auteur, l’autisme est un trouble des interactions sociales et non pas un trouble comportemental. Au fil du livre, la méthode aborde différents points cruciaux : comprendre le trouble de l'autisme et voir à travers les yeux de l'enfant, proposer des jeux créatifs et stimulants, adopter une communication verbale et non verbale appropriée, optimiser le temps de concentration, éveiller son enfant et lui proposer un environnement adapté à ses besoins.

If your child has been diagnosed with autism, this book is for you. When Raun Kaufman's parents were told that their son was autistic and would probably spend his life in an institution, they decided to look for their own solution.

Raun now teaches his parents' Son-Rise method all over the world and has written this book to help families everywhere connect with their children and improve their lives. Autism Breakthrough explains autism and its associated behaviours from the child's viewpoint and shows parents how to apply the practical strategies of the Son-Rise programme.

The Verbal Behavior Approach
The Verbal Behavior (VB) approach is a form of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), that is based on B.F. Skinner's analysis of verbal behavior and works particularly well with children with minimal or no speech abilities. In this book Dr. Mary Lynch Barbera draws on her own experiences as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and also as a parent of a child with autism to explain VB and how to use it. This step-by-step guide provides an abundance of information about how to help children develop better language and speaking skills, and also explains how to teach non-vocal children to use sign language. An entire chapter focuses on ways to reduce problem behavior, and there is also useful information on teaching toileting and other important self-help skills, that would benefit any child. This book will enable parents and professionals unfamiliar with the principles of ABA and VB to get started immediately using the Verbal Behavior approach to teach children with autism and related disorders.
B F Skinner
B.F. Skinner died in August 1990. He had been praised as one of the most influential psychologists of the 20th century, but was also attacked by a variety of opponents within and outside the field of psychology. This introduction to his work is first of all a guide to a correct reading of his writings, a reading devoid of the distortions and misinterpretations often conveyed by many commentators, including psychologists. It frames Skinner's contributions with reference to major European traditions in psychological sciences, namely Pavlov, Freud, Lorenz and Piaget. Crucial aspects of Skinner's theory and methodological stands are discussed in the context of contemporary debates: special attention is devoted to the relationship of psychology with biology and the neurosciences, to the cognitivist movement, to the status of language and to the explanation of novelty and creativity in human behaviour.; Finally, Skinner's social and political philosophy is presented with an emphasis on the provocative aspects of an analysis of current social practices which fail to solve most of the urgent problems humankind is confronted with today. Both in science proper and in human affairs at large, Skinner's thought is shown to be not behind, as is often claimed, but ahead of the times, be it in his interactive view of linguistic communication, in his very modern use of the evolutionary analogy to explain the dynamics of behaviour, or in his vision of ecological constraints.

Evolution and Conversion
Evolution and Conversion explores the main tenets of René Girard's thought in a series of dialogues. Here, Girard reflects on the evolution of his thought and offers striking new insights on topics such as violence, religion, desire and literature. His long argument is a historical one in which the origin of culture and religion is reunited in the contemporary world by means of a reinterpretation of Christianity and an understanding of the intrinsically violent nature of human beings. He also offers provocative re-readings of Biblical and literary texts and responds to statements by Daniel Dennett and Richard Dawkins. Including an introduction by the authors, this is a revealing text by one of the most original thinkers of our time.
