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.

DIY Circus Lab for Kids gives families everything they need to produce their own circus! Author Jackie Leigh Davis invites the you into the international youth circus community, then dives into the circus skill families: juggling, acrobatics, manipulation, balance, and clowning. The book opens with a do-it-yourself prop-making class, and provides enough homemade circus equipment to get you started on some fun circus basics. Rising circus stars will then move on to lessons in toss juggling, flower sticks, poi, human pyramids, and how to move on to even more tricks and skills. And best yet, kids will see how to combine skills into an act, and acts into a show. DIY Circus Lab for Kids also includes the Circademic Corner, which is full of academic and scientific factoids about circus, and Safety Check boxes whenever skill-learning requires adult supervision. Many of the skills in this book are safe enough for kids to do themselves, with a few requiring an adult “spotter” so families or classes can enjoy them together.

Entertaining Children

. Audiences sit ... We accept that adults risk their lives as a form of entertainment,
but in the Indian circus children and teenagers also defy death on a daily basis.

Parkour Sports combines the trend sports of parkour, freerunning and parcouring. All of these disciplines are founded on moves derived from classic gymnastics skills, which makes them eminently suitable for school sports classes. The exercises are motivational and offer scope for spontaneous variation, while the moves themselves are creative and dynamic. Since parkour is gaining steadily in popularity outside the school arena, it is all the more important that schools provide pupils with a safe and methodical learning framework, to prepare them adequately for real-life urban conditions. This handbook has been conceived as a practical guide, for which reason, all the practice movements covered are illustrated with photo sequences. Sports teachers and trainers will find that the moves contained in this book are presented and explained in a clear and easy to understand manner and require a minimum of prior preparation.Over and above this, each move is introduced with the same systematic methodology, including warm-up exercises, a game segment, and a relaxation phase. The book contains a total of seventeen complete sample lessons, all of which have been tested in actual sports lessons. Additional materials are available from the Internet, at: www.parkoursport.com.17 sample lessons covering all moves encountered in the range of parkour disciplines458 illustrations33 sketches

The Culture of AIDS in Africa enters into the many worlds of expression brought forth across this vast continent by the ravaging presence of HIV/AIDS. Africans and non-Africans, physicians and social scientists, journalists and documentarians share here a common and essential interest in understanding creative expression in crushing and uncertain times. They investigate and engage the social networks, power relationships, and cultural structures that enable the arts to convey messages of hope and healing, and of knowledge and good counsel to the wider community. And from Africa to the wider world, they bring intimate, inspiring portraits of the performers, artists, communities, and organizations that have shared with them their insights and the sense they have made of their lives and actions from deep within this devastating epidemic. Covering the wide expanse of the African continent, the 30 chapters include explorations of, for example, the use of music to cope with AIDS; the relationship between music, HIV/AIDS, and social change; visual approaches to HIV literacy; radio and television as tools for "edutainment;" several individual artists' confrontations with HIV/AIDS; various performance groups' response to the epidemic; combating HIV/AIDS with local cultural performance; and more. Source material, such as song lyrics and interviews, weaves throughout the collection, and contributions by editors Gregory Barz and Judah M. Cohen bookend the whole, to bring together a vast array of perspectives and sources into a nuanced and profoundly affective portrayal of the intricate relationship between HIV/AIDS and the arts in Africa.

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.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2017 in the subject Psychology - Learning Psychology, Intelligence Research, Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (Philosophische Fakultät und fachbereiche Theologie), language: English, abstract: This study analyzes the success factors of winning awards for individual beneficiaries and as an organization within Mully Children’s Family (MCF), a Kenyan NGO for marginalized and traumatized children. The Actiotope Model is used to help analyze, and define the success factors. The Educational Capital developed and the development of Learning Capital supported by MCF as a construct is analyzed through the use of: 1) a QELC questionnaire with beneficiaries, 2) interviews of beneficiaries 3) NBLC checklist-based questionnaires for people in the support system and 4) interviews of staff and community. The Microsystems developed by the MCF construct, provide tools and well-developed Educational Capital as well as a system of coaching and nurturing to be able to enhance Learning Capital. The MCF construct is a Microsystem; it has its own compounds, schools, playgrounds and clubs, to ensure that the best Micro- and Mesosystem is created to rehabilitate and help beneficiaries effectively interact and impact the Exosystems around them, while some win awards. The success factors based on the QELC questionnaire for the award winners were determined. The three strong correlations for award winners were: 1) Cultural Educational Capital, especially as it relates to their choice to surround themselves with other high achievers within the MCF construct; 2) Organismic Learning Capital which suggests that award winners not only understand the significance of keeping their bodies healthy but also practice this; 3. Modifiability Belief, the award winners understand they have the ability to modify their behavior, learn from their mistakes and success and then modify their present actions. The impact of mentors was researched. Peers were found to play a vital role in success as well. The MCF construct intentionalizes staff-beneficiary and peer-peer mentoring. The success of MCF, which supports the modification of each beneficiary through the complex intentionalized Actiotope, is effective as can be seen by the rankings of their primary and secondary exam results and the numerous awards of individuals and teams; and also provides an environment in which marginalized members of Kenyan society have the chance to develop themselves to win awards, become entrepreneurs, and become vital members of society.

Whether you want to join the circus or be simply an armchair acrobat, the women in this book can tell you how it's done from women involved in every area, photographs, recipes, poetry, diagrams and much more.
