              This book is written for parents, grandparents, medical staff and caregivers of people with Down syndrome; undergraduate students and young researchers in the field of intellectual disabilities, to give a broad coverage of Down syndrome, showing the latest advances and the change...s in its perception, based on practice, personal experience and research.Down syndrome is discussed throughout the lifespan - from birth to old age, in the family and community. The issues of friendship, school and employment as well as health in its broadest sense and the challenges of ageing are reviewed. The application of policies based on both the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the concept of quality of life is also considered. Genetics is often misunderstood, so a simple explanation is given in terms of a condition that occurs naturally as a result of billions of years of evolution.The variability of people with Down syndrome is exemplified with cases from various parts of the world that have been successful in their lives and in their activities. The book is summarised with an optimistic photo essay.It contains an abundant bibliography both historical and recent.This book, originally published in Spanish, was translated to benefit a wider range of readers in need of a rigorous exposition of Down syndrome in accessible terms, including those whose English is their second language.

              Emotionality has long been recognised as a crucial ingredient in human beings. A good connection with emotionality is essential; and it is highly complicated and dynamic in human life. It can never be fully explained or analysed by rational analysis and measurement of emotions. T...he writer has published a book Emotionality & Mental Illness: A Multi-dimensional Model in New York: Nova Science in 2012 in which various perspectives in emotionality are described. It is also related to ones meaning of life, self and ego strengths, mind, body, behaviours and deeds, interpersonal relationships, roles and social functioning. Then, a multi-dimensional model in terms of feeling, mood, affect and sense is constructed to interpret the emotionality of persons with mental problems is also described. This book is an extension and elaboration of the above mentioned book, and the second in a two volume series. It is a further refined articulation of emotionality in severe mental illness. Based on the multi-dimensional model of emotionality in terms of affect, mood, feeling and sense, the writer tries to interpret and intervene with the emotionality of severe mental illnesses such as the blunt affect of schizophrenia, feelings of anger in major depressive disorder, a dissociative sense of fear in post-traumatic stress disorder and the lonely mood in borderline personality disorder. In this book, the writer begins each chapter with a focus on the various perspectives of a specific type of mental illness. Based on these perspectives, the writer attempts to integrate these perspectives with related concepts in emotionality hoping that it can provide a humanistic, yet pioneering, platform in interpreting and intervening in persons with severe mental illnesses.
