Cet ouvrage se veut une illustration de la diversité des situations et de la complexité des enjeux sous-jacents de même qu’un éclairage pour éviter certains pièges. La popularité grandissante de la garde partagée peut aussi comporter des risques. Celui, pour les parents qui se séparent, de faire de la garde partagée un automatisme nous apparaît bien réel de même que la tendance à opter pour cette modalité de garde sans toujours bien évaluer les exigences qui y sont rattachées. Les mises en garde éclairant ce parcours sont proposées dans un objectif préventif tout en respectant la réflexion et le sens critique. Il s’agit d’un livre s’adressant à la fois au grand public et aux professionnels et traitant de la garde partagée/résidence alternée dans ses aspects théoriques et pratiques et sous différents angles de son évolution, ici et ailleurs, depuis 1989. Par delà les frontières, un constat se dégage à savoir que la garde partagée, quelles que soient ses appellations et ses modalités, hier comme aujourd’hui, demeure d’abord et avant tout une affaire de cœur !

Extrait: ...en t'ecrivant. J'ai trouve, en repassant a Bruxelles, le chef d'escadron Jacquin, celui qui m'y avait recu, lorsque pour la premiere fois j'ai fait mon debut a la gamelle du regiment. Il m'a retenu a dejeuner et a diner, et m'a appris que le regiment avait beaucoup souffert dans les dernieres affaires. Tu as vu que nous avions fait une reculade a notre armee d'observation. Nos avant-postes n'ont point encore remue. Ils sont a Siegbourg, Kaiserwert, Elberfeld, sur une ligne a dix lieues plus loin que le Rhin. Sur ce point-la nous sommes inattaquables, ayant toutes les redoutes du Rhin, le fort d'Ehrenbreitstein, et tant d'autres positions inexpugnables. Aussi l'empereur dirige-t-il ses attaques sur Schaffhouse et Bale. Il ne lui serait pas difficile de penetrer par la; mais ils ont une tactique si bete qu'ils ne sauront pas profiter de leurs avantages. Ils ne savent pas, comme nous, faire des trouees, ils ne marchent jamais que sur une grande ligne flasque. Le quartier general de l'armee d'observation va etre a present a Cologne, ce qui rendra cette Yille bien vivante. Ne sois point inquiete de moi, ma bonne mere; nous sommes les chanoines de l'armee. Adieu, je t'embrasse de toute mon ame. J'aurais bien besoin de ma bonne dans mes etapes pour me bassiner mon lit. Mais je n'aurais pas besoin des discours de Deschartres pour m'endormir. La fatigue y supplee. LETTRE XXXV Cologne, le 4 floreal. Enfin, ma bonne mere, j'ai revu les murs et les remparts de Cologne. Ce n'est pas sans peine, val...

Miguel Bonnefoy’s colourful tale of a family’s changing fortunes is also the fascinating story of Venezuela’s development over the course of the 20th century. On the edge of the Latin American rainforest, the Oteros family farm sugar cane in their remote corner of the earth. Cut off entirely from the modern world, life is peaceful, uneventful. Until, that is, a succession of ships arrive in search of Henry Morgan’s legendary lost treasure, said to be buried deep beneath the forest floor. Soon, the isolated villagers are exposed to all the trappings of modernity, while the travellers’ search for booty unearths more than anybody could have anticipated... And so it was that the treasure lay buried amid scraps of sail and a pirate’s corpse, preserved within the belly of the Caribbean...

Kinship care – the care of children by grandparents, other relatives or friends – is a major part of foster care, yet there are distinct issues that arise in care involving family rather than 'stranger' foster carers. This book takes an in-depth look at what goes on 'inside' kinship care. It explores the dynamics and relationships between family members that are involved in kinship care, including mothers, grandparents, siblings and the wider family. Chapters also discuss issues such as safeguarding, assessment, therapy, encouraging permanence, placement breakdown, support groups, and cultural issues. The final part of the book looks at kinship care from an international perspective, with examples from New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and the United States. Drawing on a range of theoretical perspectives and with contributions from different branches of kinship care, this book provides an invaluable overview of the issues involved and how to provide effective support. It will be essential reading for all those working in the kinship care field, including social workers, therapists, counsellors, psychologists and family lawyers.

The Madonna of the St. Denis Bar-BQ is a true account of a parent-child relationship, beginning with the details of the death of the authorís mother, Belle-Moue, and tracing her history back, chapter by chapter, to her birth some decades earlier. It reads like modern-day fiction, scored with factual information. The theme is universal. Authors from different cultural backgrounds have written about the life and death of a parent: Simone de Beauvoir and Michael Ignatieff, among others, have recounted the mother-to-daughter, mother-to-son legacy. The setting for the book, originally entitled Belle-Moue, is regional: it is the life story of a QuÈbÈcoise, in la belle province, from 1988 back to 1909. The plot includes a distinct dimension ó the veritable influence of religion and government on 20th century French Canada and on women in particular ó a subject about which Huguette OíNeil writes with convincing authority. An award-winning author, she is also a journalist and served as Director of Information for the Quebec Council on the Status of Women. The Madonna of the St. Denis Bar-B-Q was originally published by Triptyque under the title Belle-Moue. The book won both the Prix Gaston-Gouin and the prix Juge-Lemay, and has been translated by Suzanne OíConnor. Critical Comment ìIn a book with a few pages, Huguette OíNeil packs a wallop, delving into the complexities of mother-daughter relationships, the sociopolitical climate of Quebec, and bares her own soul in the process.... She exposes her mother with all her warts and makes no attempt to hide her own feelings of guilt, and at times annoyance, with her mother, striking a chord that resonates with every reader.î ó Sharon McCully, The Record, 2004 ìBy contrasting her motherís powerlessness with her own political activism, OíNeil reflects on the social changes that have enabled her to believe in the possibility of modifying the course of womenís destiny. In a series of emotionally charged passages that sporadically disrupt her otherwise dispassionate narrative, OíNeil forgives her mother for her submissiveness and recognizes the extent to which the latterís unconditional love was fundamental to hwer own sense of self-worth. î ó U of T Quarterly, Winter 2006 ìOíNeil manages to explore the ravages of her motherís life with wisdom and tenderness....î ó Joan Cadham, Montreal Review of Books, 2004

Why do people work hard, and take pride in what they do? This book, a philosophically-minded enquiry into practical activity of many different kinds past and present, is about what happens when people try to do a good job. It asks us to think about the true meaning of skill in the 'skills society' and argues that pure competition is a poor way to achieve quality work. Sennett suggests, instead, that there is a craftsman in every human being, which can sometimes be enormously motivating and inspiring - and can also in other circumstances make individuals obsessive and frustrated. The Craftsman shows how history has drawn fault-lines between craftsman and artist, maker and user, technique and expression, practice and theory, and that individuals' pride in their work, as well as modern society in general, suffers from these historical divisions. But the past lives of crafts and craftsmen show us ways of working (using tools, acquiring skills, thinking about materials) which provide rewarding alternative ways for people to utilise their talents. We need to recognise this if motivations are to be understood and lives made as fulfilling as possible.

Mitchell Thomashow, a preeminent educator, shows how environmental studies can be taught from different perspective, one that is deeply informed by personal reflection. Through theoretical discussion as well as hands-on participatory learning approaches, Thomashow provides concerned citizens, teachers, and students with the tools needed to become reflective environmentalists.What do I know about the place where I live? Where do things come from? How do I connect to the earth? What is my purpose as a human being? These are the questions that Thomashow identifies as being at the heart of environmental education. Developing a profound sense of oneself in relationship to natural and social ecosystems is necessary grounding for the difficult work of environmental advocacy. In this book he provides a clear and accessible guide to the learning experiences that accompany the construction of an "ecological identity": using the direct experience of nature as a framework for personal decisions, professional choices, political action, and spiritual inquiry.Ecological Identity covers the different types of environmental thought and activism (using John Muir, Henry David Thoreau, and Rachel Carson as environmental archetypes, but branching out into ecofeminism and bioregionalism), issues of personal property and consumption, political identity and citizenship, and integrating ecological identity work into environmental studies programs. Each chapter has accompanying learning activities such as the Sense of Place Map, a Community Network Map, and the Political Genogram, most of which can be carried out on an individual basis.Although people from diverse backgrounds become environmental activists and enroll in environmental studies programs, they are rarely encouraged to examine their own history, motivations, and aspirations. Thomashow's approach is to reveal the depth of personal experience that underlies contemporary environmentalism and to explore, interpret, and nurture the learning spaces made possible when people are moved to contemplate their experience of nature.
