Abstract: The books reviewed in this edition engage with quite diverse themes, ranging from models of working with people with Asperger’s Syndrome to cognitivebehavioural approaches to stress management for young people, to a framework for understanding domestic violence, as well as analysis of children’s language acquisition and development. Both Bradshaw’s account of Asperger’s Syndrome and Saxton’s book on language acquisition are complimented for their accessibility facilitated by personal stories and humour, with Saxton’s work in particular encompassing a range of crosscultural examples. Laing et al.’s interrogation of domestic violence is interpreted as weaving important conceptual dimensions together with vignettes to inform practice. Both Collins-Donnelly’s approach to coping with stress and Saxton’s language development tend to prioritise cognitive dimensions over wider emotional and social aspects. A number of the reviewers suggest that the contexts of relevance of the books traverse broader domains of education and health professionals than perhaps initially anticipated by some of their authors.
