    Title: When Trust Goes Missing: A Clinical Guide
    Author: SKELLETT CHRIS

    Trust underpins every decision that we make. Typically, we will trust our partners to be faithful and to tell the truth. We will trust our friends to keep a confidence. We trust pilots and mechanics to keep planes flying, and we trust governments, banks and commercial business to act in our best interests. Meanwhile, in the virtual world, we are increasingly obliged to trust our decisions online… But when trust goes missing, life becomes hard. We suddenly doubt ourselves and those around us. We assume mistrust, and we question everything. We become sceptical and cynical. Without trust, life can be a very lonely, tiring, and negative experience. So how do we manage trust, and how can we make trust work for us?In this book, clinical psychologist Chris Skellett lays out a practical framework for trust, in which all common psychological problems can be seen at least in part as disorders of trust.

    Author: WALKER HOLLY

    “I knew that to tell this story, I would have to be brave and radically honest. I would need to find my voice, and get over any fears, insecurities and excuses not to use it. The best way I could think to do this was to surround myself with the voices of other women who had already done it.”

    A Rhodes scholar and former Green MP, Holly Walker tells her story of how she became one of New Zealand’s youngest parliamentarians, how motherhood intervened, and how she found solace and solidarity in the writings of women. This short book makes a passionate case for the role of literature in political change and personal resilience, and for the importance of women’s voices in the public sphere.

    Whole Sphere: Supporting Wellbeing & Recovery from Relational Trauma

    Title: Whole Sphere: Supporting Wellbeing & Recovery from Relational Trauma
    Author: WELD NICKI

    The goal of The Whole Sphere - Supporting wellbeing, and recovery from relational trauma is to support wellbeing to enable personal growth and development for those recovering from relational trauma. The model used to frame this "support" is an acronym 'Sphere' (Spiritual, Physical, Hope, Emotional, Relational and Engagement). A sphere is a complete whole, and these six aspects of human wellbeing summarise what supports us all to be whole and in balance, integrated and well. Each chapter explores and offers ideas to support one of the six aspects, first linked to general well-being, and then from the perspective of the impact of relational trauma. A summary of ten ideas is provided at the end of these chapters for easy reference. The final chapter (before the conclusion) applies the author's "Three Houses" information-gathering tool (known internationally) in a new way to help people complete their own self-assessment of their sphere and thereby set goals to support their own well-being. Professional help is not affordable for many affected by relational trauma and this book hopes to reach those people as well as social service workers who need practical 'around the kitchen-table' type ideas deliverable in less well-resourced communities.

    Title: Why Science Is Sexist
    Author: GASTON NICOLA

    In June 2015, Nobel Laureate Tim Hunt resigned from the Faculty of Life Sciences at University College London after making a dismissive remark about female scientists.

    The incident is just the tip of the iceberg, argues Nicola Gaston, President of the New Zealand Association of Scientists. In this timely BWB Text, she scrutinises the sexism afflicting the discipline of science, from the under-representation of women to the ‘scientific’ argument that mental capabilities are gendered. Ultimately, she asks what can be done to combat unconscious bias in science – and to ensure that the future of scientific inquiry is both balanced and objective.

    Author: ABBOTT MICK & REEVE RICHARD ED

    Images of pristine forests, mountain ranges, untameable rivers and empty expanses of coastline are the key attraction in how we promote Aotearoa New Zealand internationally: '100% Pure' no less. Such wildness is at this nation's psychological and physical core. This book searches for an understanding of 'the wild', of what makes wilderness such an important part of our psyche. The seventeen essays come from trampers, scientists, conservationists, policy-makers, photographers, historians, and writers. Together they examine many aspects of the idea of wilderness. What and where is New Zealand's wilderness? Is the wilderness something that we lock up or not? How do Maori see wilderness? How is it defined by law and what is government policy? Why? Where does that leave us? What do we want of wilderness? Can we exploit its resources? Wild Heart looks forward, as exploring the 'possibility' of wilderness lies at its core. What could wilderness in Aotearoa New Zealand become, and, consequently, what might we its people also become?

    Author: WALSH TONY

    These angling stories will whet your appetite to be out on the river again. From one end of New Zealand to the other, these short chapters introduce the reader to some of our country’s fabulous wild waters and the cunning brown and rainbow trout lurking in them. With beautiful photographs of New Zealand’s back country rivers this could almost be a travel book as much as a set of fishing yarns. As author Tony and his wife wander from one river to another you will be introduced to the wild, untamed beauty of our nation. You will experience Tony’s love of nature and the tranquillity of the back country rivers as much as the thrill of landing some of those big trout. Written by the author of The Black Singlet Brigade and Boots ’n’ All, Wimps in Waders is a book for any-one who enjoys a lazy afternoon on a riverbank as much as the adrenaline rush brought on by the hunt for that worthy adversary, New Zealand’s well-schooled trout. Experiences gained in 50 years of fishing make for an enthralling read as Tony grows from a tentative spin fisherman to a fully-fledged angler. A chance encounter with another river bed angler led to Tony’s introduction to the local fishing club and as he confesses his membership led to growth in his skills. This can be noted from the explanations of fishing techniques and fly tying guidelines found throughout the book. These short stories explore some of our relatively unknown streams and are beautifully illustrated with full colour photographs.

Her travels around Australia take her to treatment facilities and AA groups. Mining the expertise of leading researchers, she explores the early predictors of addiction, such as childhood trauma and temperament, and teenage impulsivity. Drawing on neuroscience, she explains why other self-destructive behaviours - such as eating disorders, compulsive buying and high-risk sex - are interchangeable with problematic substance use. Valentish follows the pathways that women, in particular, take into addiction - and out again. Woman of Substancesis an insightful, rigorous and brutally honest read.

    Who are Maori children with special education needs? Why would working with them be any different to working with other children with special education needs? Why is this a highly important job - he mahi whakahirahira? This book provides essential information for those striving to provide culturally responsive, effective education for Maori children. Working with Maori Children with Special Education Needs emphasises the importance of learning from the past and listening to Maori children, their parents and wider whanau. It explores the key components of culturally responsive, evidence-based, special education practice; it describes holistic and inclusive responses to educating all tamariki, especially those with identified special education needs; and it discusses a paradigm for Maori disability identity - whanau haua. This book also features specific categorial studies, outlining Maori concepts and advising professionals. The studies explore the needs of deaf children and their whanau; outline general, educational and cultural barriers for Maori who are vision impaired or blind; and discuss physical disability, intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder, and giftedness from a Maori perspective. This book then considers ways that teachers and whanau can capitalise on their respective strengths and knowledge in order to take joint responsibility for students' learning and behaviour. Each chapter includes study questions.

    Author: POND WENDY & WOLFFRAM PAUL

    Allan Thomas began lecturing at Victoria University's School of Music in 1977, and developed across the following three decades a wide range and vision for ethnomusicology there. World Music courses were complemented by tuition in and performance of Indonesian gamelan, using the set of instruments from Cirebon which he had brought to New Zealand in 1974. The twin focus on Asian and Pacific music also broadened into explorations of vernacular music in New Zealand society. Postwar musical life of Hawera township in Taranaki is the subject of Music Is Where You Find It (2004). In this volume, Allan's distinctive voice and sensibility are sustained through another generation of ethnomusicological studies by students and colleagues who have jumped over the boundary fence to find music in its social context at stock sales, agricultural shows, dance festivals, brass band competitions, Irish pubs, and in communities wherever they have travelled.

The rules of good writing are deceptively simple but this book helps writers to see those principles at work, through examples by stylish authors from Charles Dickens to John McPhee. First published in 2007, The Writer's Diet became a bestselling handbook and now returns refreshed alongside a new version of www.writersdiet.com. The book will highlight your bad habits and sharpen your style - for clearer, crisper sentences filled with words that count.

    Title: Writing Life: Twelve NZ Authors
    Author: SHEPARD DEBORAH

    A unique, candid and intimate survey of the life and work of 12 of our most acclaimed writers: Patricia Grace, Tessa Duder, Owen Marshall, Philip Temple, David Hill, Joy Cowley, Vincent O'Sullivan, Albert Wendt, Marilyn Duckworth, Chris Else, Fiona Kidman and Witi Ihimaera. Constructed as Q&As with experienced oral historian Deborah Shepard, they offer a marvellous insight into their careers. As a group they are now the 'elders' of New Zealand literature; they forged the path for the current generation. Together the authors trace their publishing and literary history from 1959 to 2018, through what might now be viewed as a golden era of publishing into the more unsettled climate of today. They address universal themes: the death of parents and loved ones, the good things that come with ageing, the components of a satisfying life, and much more. And they give advice on writing. The book has an historical continuity, showing fruitful and fascinating links between individuals who have negotiated the same literary terrain for more than sixty years. To further honour them are magnificent photo portraits by distinguished photographer John McDermott, commissioned by the publisher for this project.
