This book examines why workplaces around the world have become involved in childcare and the nature of the programs that have been implemented. It provides an overview of diverse workplace initiatives beyond traditional preschool care. Partnership is a key theme, and the authors highlight the fruitfulness of collaborations that combine the resources and capabilities of different actors. Ten industrialized and developing countries are examined through a national overview on policies and facilities for childcare and the implications for working parents, followed by case studies of specific workplaces. The studies provide considerable detail on why the childcare support was started, how it is funded and managed, how various partners are involved, and the perspectives of workers and employers on the support provided. The book shows how support for childcare has been organized and funded in a variety of workplaces and the diversity of the partnerships that have evolved in both developing and industrialized countries. It will be a useful resource for policymakers and workplace partners looking for practical ways to help working parents with their childcare needs.
The Detoxing of Caregivers: Key Tips for Survival, Strength, and Patience is a multifaceted guide to providing the best possible care for your loved ones and patients while also taking care of the one person many caregivers neglect: yourself. The easy-to-understand text is not only aimed at helping the primary caregiver for those who have taken it upon themselves to care for loved ones, but it is also designed to help home-healthcare professionals cope with the stresses and demands of a career in service to patients who need round-the-clock attention. Dr. L. T. Force follows the Dimensional Solution-Based Treatment (DSBT) paradigm in his expert recommendations and advice, focusing on strategies to achieve excellent care in three domains: cognition, energy, and movement. He also discusses the holistic triage approach to treatment, where nutrition, stress reduction, and exercise are key components to the best overall health of both patient and caregiver. Dr. Force explains that the core issues that arise for caregivers must be resolved before the secondary issues can be alleviated. Instead of getting bogged down in the individual problems associated with caregiving, this unique guide helps find all-encompassing, self-empowering solutions.
