Children and teenagers find acrobatics exciting. The challenge of risking their equilibrium together and building human formations is intriguing. Team spirit and the willingness to cooperate are required. Many of the spectacular human pyramids and partner balances are easy to learn and considerable progress can be made in a short period of time. This book provides a vivid and informative description of the principles of partner acrobatics with children and teenagers. It provides suggestions on how to begin and how to design meaningful training sessions, as well as different options for the structuring of performances. In addition to the many preparatory exercises, the practical portion of the book introduces simple acrobatic formations that have been tried and tested. The individual chapters include detailed written and visual descriptions of the many different techniques, from pyramid building to fantasy formations, from dynamic elements to elegant partner formations. The Evolution of Acrobatics Acrobatics is considered a movement art with a long tradition and evolutionary history. The term "acrobatics" stems from the Greek word "akrobates", which actually means, "one walking on his toes" and originally referred to a tightrope walker. The oldest testimonials on acrobatics (approximately 2000 BC) were found in Egypt and consist primarily of drawings on limestone rocks. The first written evidence stems from an account of an Egyptian feast in the 4th century BC, during which acrobats performed and built tall human pyramids. Acrobats have always been on the fringes of society, were seen as infamous and as a "vagrant people" who remained without rights. Their circumstances changed little during the Middle Ages. Only the emergence of the circus at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th century represented a definitive turning point for travelling artists and acrobats.

This is a comprehensive textbook on child and adolescent psychotherapy. It is suitable for students at graduate, postgraduate and advanced undergraduate levels. It will also serve to inform experienced practitioners about the latest developments in the field. Bringing together concepts and methods from psychodynamic, behavioural, cognitive and developmental perspectives, it provides an integrative conceptual model and therapeutic approach for conducting psychotherapy with children and adolescents troubled by a wide range of psychological and cognitive difficulties, including ADHD and learning disorders. The integrated model and rationale described seeks to stimulate students and experienced clinicians alike to step out of the present-day, conceptually segregated world of psychotherapy and into a world of psychotherapy unbounded by narrow theoretical orientations.

"In this colorful, lively analysis of selected African literature for young people, Osayimwense Osa focuses on Anglophone countries - Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Gambia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Zimbabwe, and South Africa - and primarily on the novel, a popular genre in contemporary adolescent literature in Anglophone Africa. This study seeks to illuminate African cultural assumptions, especially those about love and marriage and other aspects of social conduct that non-Africans may find strange." "Using the novels of Cyprian Ekwensi, Buchi Emecheta, and other lesser-known authors, Osa discusses young adult love, marriage customs, the restraints placed on women, and the catastrophic effects of polygamy; how wealth and greed can lead to immorality and crime among young people; how idealism and activism among young people can be corrupted; and the responsibilities of youth during civil war and war's devastating consequences." "Addressing the oral-story tradition that abounds on the African continent, Osa uses Ekwensi's An African Night's Entertainment - immensely popular with young Africans since its publication in 1962 - as a perfect example of a literary retelling of a traditional folk tale." "Throughout this study Osa stresses the preponderance of didacticism among African children's literature: almost all of these writers have been inspired by traditional values to direct children toward an acceptable African way of life."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
