Fievre passes on the tips and guidance that have helped her educate her Black students, including:

Strengthen the Mother-Baby Bond During and After Breastfeeding

“I needed this book in my life when I was weaning my babies. All of the mamas need this book.”—April Morones, Lactation Consultant

Perfect gift. An interactive guide, tool and special picture book keepsake that prepares your child and you for the end of nursing.

Weaning is a special and emotional transition―get the help you need. If you’re a breastfeeding mom, you know on an emotional level that the bond between mother and child is strengthened when breastfeeding. Due to both breast milk itself and the tangible contact of nursing, the connection is also strengthened on a scientific and physical level. This, among other advantages of breastfeeding, is part of what makes weaning so difficult, both for children and mothers. Knowing when to stop breastfeeding, and how to do it in a way that honors and preserves your relationship with your child, can make the process easier and smoother. In Mama’s Milk and Me, author and mother Alisha Gaddis provides a loving and interactive guide for taking this inevitable step.

Celebrate this new chapter in your life. While weaning comes with its challenges, it also opens the door to experience new and exciting milestones with your child. Just as your child will continue to grow and develop, so too will your relationship. Part of what makes this book a wonderful gift for new moms and mamas with experience is that it doubles as a keepsake. With a fill-in-the-blank format, mothers are provided a space to reflect and work through the emotional process of weaning. In addition, the book includes prompts for ideas on how to celebrate this step with your child. Learn more about:

  • The importance of breastfeeding and the bond between you and your child
  • How to sustain the connection even after breastfeeding stops
  • The exciting changes and developments that await you after weaning

I Am Not a Juvenile Delinquent

By

A Mourning Mother, a Group of Girls and the Power of Rehabilitative Poetry

“This stunning memoir, written with the eye, ear and imagery of a poet, takes the reader through a grieving mother’s journey toward healing—as she reaches out to others who, like her, have been shattered by unspeakable grief. Charde encourages young, incarcerated women to find their voices and to write and share their haunting life stories, as she shares hers with them.” —Carol Henderson, author of Losing Malcolm and Farther Along

For fans of the acclaimed movies Stand and Deliver. After the death of her child, a grief-stricken psychotherapist, teacher, and writer volunteers as a poetry teacher at a residential treatment facility for “delinquent” girls. Here, their mutual support nourishes and enriches each other, though not without large quantities of drama and recalcitrance.

Learning to let go of grief and loss by writing poetry as therapy. Compelling, appealing, poignant and often hilarious, I Am Not a Juvenile Delinquent chronicles the passion that grew for pushing voices out into the world. As Sharon and the girls share their losses through weekly writing, they came to realize their unlimited potential and poetic talents.

Healing from trauma. Healing can come in surprising ways across age and social class, as it did for both the girls and Sharon. But what happens when Sharon finally grasps that the most challenging experiences are the best teachers? Narrated in five parts, the book also contains poems written by the girls, as well as excerpts from their writing, Sharon’s son’s writing, and her own.

Write to Restore

By

Using Your Words to Heal

A holistic approach to recovering from trauma. Creative writing is increasingly becoming a go-to method for trauma recovery. There is great power in the written word, and even more so when those words are our own. Journaling provides a cathartic release of emotions because it allows us to not only process past experiences but also reflect on how we’re feeling in the present moment. In this way, writing is one of the most easily accessible self-care practices.

Give voice to what has been silenced. Healing from trauma can be a slow and painful process, especially for sexual trauma survivors, who are often shamed into keeping their experience to themselves. This companion journal to Jen Cross's book Writing Ourselves Whole is a space to put the pain on a page, and in doing so, release the hold it has on us and restore our bodies and minds.

Creativity as a tool for change. Trauma and violence leave a distinct mark on our lives, one that is not easily erased. Writing on our own or with a community or group can be an extremely transformative process for creating change both within ourselves and socially. It encourages discussions about mental and emotional health that lead to finding more approaches to healing.

Jen Cross has worked with sexual trauma survivors for over fifteen years and founded an organization that is devoted to creating spaces for survivors to write and talk about their experiences. In this self-help journal, you will find:

  • A 60-day guided journey to healing from your experience
  • Sixteen writing exercises that gently prompt writers deeper into their experiences and into renewal
  • Follow-up readings, additional exercises, and suggested uses for your writing

If you’ve worked through books such as Start Where You AreHealing the Wounded Heart, and Present, Not Perfect then Our Words Restore Us will provide further support and restoration for your healing process.
