Warrior Mom

Tracy M. Slepcevic Morgan James Publishing

Modern medicine considers Autism to be an “incurable diagnosis,” but Warrior Mom challenges this claim, sharing one mother’s journey to heal her son. For any parent who has heard the chilling words "your child has autism," Tracy Slepcevic offers hope, inspiration, and advice to help you navigate the system, evaluate different treatment options, and heal your child’s underlying conditions. After her son Noah had a severe regression after meeting all his milestones, Tracy spent years trying to figure out what was wrong with her little boy. Once given a diagnosis, doctors said Noah would never lead a fully functioning life, but Tracy knew this was not her son’s fate. Refusing to give up, Tracy read dozens of books, attended autism conferences, and spent countless hours researching how to heal her child. She was determined to turn her son around from what doctor’s called an “incurable diagnosis” so that Noah could live his best life possible. Over the years, Noah made great progress with biomedical intervention and lives a fully functional life today with a bright future ahead of him. Warrior Mom is an inspiring story of hope and an indispensable guidebook for any parent desperate to hear the truth that autism is not a hopeless diagnosis and that many underlying conditions associated with autism are treatable.

Control Abuse Bullying And Family Violence In Tourism Industries

Elisa Zentveld Channel View Publications

This book explores the roles that control, abuse, bullying and family violence can play within the tourism system. While it is generally understood that such behaviours are significant issues in society, the correlation between these types of behaviour and tourism has not been assessed in scholarly circles. The volume sets out to explain each of these behaviours within tourism industries using autoethnography as its method. This book reveals the heightened risk of family violence during family events, sporting events and in the tourism system, and explains that risks continue and can even increase after separating from a perpetrator of family violence. This is an important and under-researched area in the tourism and events literature and will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in these fields, as well as family violence, social work, health and law.
