FORTHCOMING | No Way but Forward  is a narrative non-fiction telling the life stories of three families in the Gaza Strip that I've known for 25 years. The main protagonists are three men who were adolescents during the first intifada. The narrative traces their lives - and that of their families - through that movement and to the present as they have made life work in individual ways amidst the devastating decline of conditions in Gaza.

                                                                                                                                                   

ADOLESCENTS AND WAR brings together world experts in an evidence-based volume to thoroughly understand and document the intricacies of youth who have had substantial involvement in political violence.

 

 


                                                                                                                                                   

INTRUSIVE PARENTING: HOW PYSCHOLOGICAL CONTROL AFFECTS CHILDREN & ADOLESCENTS focuses on parental psychological control, or intrusive, inhibiting, and manipulative parental behaviors and interaction patterns that negatively affect healthy child development. Contributors comprehensively review new and original research and present new methodologies and findings that enhance the further study of this important component of the socialization of children.

                                                                                                                                                   

PARENTAL SUPPORT, PSYCHOLOGICAL CONTROL, AND BEHAVIORAL CONTROL presents  three central dimensions of parenting - support, behavioral control, and psychological control - have been consistently identified in research as relevant to adolescent functioning, but they have not often been studied jointly. This monograph reported on research that did so and tested unique effects of the dimensions in data from adolescents in 11 cultures across the world.
