The Abuse Prevention MonitorA collection of monthly newsletters, The Roger MacNamara anthology is dedicated to the proposition that children and vulnerable adults have the right to live abuse free lives. Each newsletter addresses a particular aspect of abuse prevention. The information continues to be as pertinent and relevant as the day it was written and the anthology is easily disassembled so issues may be used individually for training.

A Caregiver's Handbook: Halting the Angry Reaction


Caregivers HandbookThis handbook offers illustrations from the caregiving scene and at home and in public. This handbook asks employees to question themselves, their choice of employment. This handbook teaches them forms of anger and angry responses. It then asks them to evaluate their own patterns. This handbook brings anger and reality together in a self-help and coaching format. This handbook is designed for occupational and personal development and not for a "be good or be gone" single session. This handbook will challenge your organization to adequately and continuously prepare direct care staff for the daily occupational pressure.
