Torey Hayden könyvei a rukkolán


Torey Hayden - Murphy's ​Boy
His ​name was Kevin but his keepers called him Zoo Boy. He didn’t talk. He hid under tables and surrounded himself with a cage of chairs. He hadn’t been out of the building in the four years since he’d come in. He was afraid of water and wouldn’t take a shower. He was afraid to be naked, to change his clothes. He was nearly 16. Desperate to see change in the boy, the staff of Kevin’s adolescent treatment center hired Hayden. As Hayden read to him and encouraged him to read, crawling down into his cage of chairs with him, Kevin talked. Then he started to draw and paint and showed himself to have a quick wit and a rolling, seething, murderous hatred for his stepfather Hayden writes very readably. Though Kevin must have been scary, he is rarely scary to her and this is not a frightening book. It is reassurance we all need. In the wreck of this world, love still works. We can heal each other, if we listen.

Torey Hayden - Egy ​gyerek
Egy ​hatéves lány fához kötözte és felgyújtotta hároméves társát. A kisfiú válságos állapotban került kórházba. Van-e élet ezek után a kislány számára? "Ez a könyv csak egyetlen gyermek története. Nem azért íródott, hogy sajnálatot ébresszen. Nem is azzal a szándékkal, hogy egy tanárt megdicsérjenek a munkájáért. Még kevésbé azért, hogy riogassa a békés és boldog tudatlanságban élőket. Nem. Ez a könyv csupán válasz szeretne lenni arra a kérdésre, vajon frusztráló dolog-e mentálisan beteg gyerekekkel dolgozni. Egy dal szeretne lenni, amely az emberi lélek tiszteletére íródott, egy kislány tiszteletére, aki olyan, mint valamennyi gyermekem. Mint mi mindannyian. Valaki, aki élni akar." (a Szerző)

Torey Hayden - Beautiful ​Child
Seven-year-old ​Venus Fox never spoke, never listened, never even acknowledged another human being in the room with her. Yet an accidental playground 'bump' would release a rage frightening to behold. The school year that followed would prove to be one of the most trying, perplexing, and ultimately rewarding of Torey's career, as she struggled to reach a silent child in obvious pain and remained committed to helping a 'hopeless' girl, and patiently and lovingly leading her towards the light of a new day.

Torey Hayden - Napraforgóerdő

Torey Hayden - Szellemlány
Jadie ​sohasem beszélt. Nem nevetett, nem sírt, és nem adott ki semmilyen hangot. Akárhogy próbáltak közeledni hozzá, bezárva maradt saját zavaros világába, ahol a szellemek beszéd nélkül is megértik egymást. Az osztályba érkező energikus új tanárnak végre sikerül megtörnie a hallgatást. Ő tudja, hogy szóra bírni egy sérült lelkű gyermeket sokszor könnyebb, mint szembenézni azzal, ami elől a némaságba menekült. Jadie történetei mégis megdöbbentik. Feldolgozásukhoz minden korábbi tapasztalata kevés. Amiről a kislány mesél, túl borzasztó ahhoz, hogy bárki komolyan vegye - az elmondottak csak egy zavart elme víziói lehetnek. Vagy talán mégsem... A könyv szerzője gyermekpszichológus, aki pályáját fejlesztő pedagógusként kezdte. Dolgozott általános iskolák speciális osztályaiban, kutatóintézetekben és magánklinikákon. Tanácsadója és együttműködője több gyermekbántalmazás ellen küzdő szervezetnek. 1979 óta írja visszaemlékezéseit az osztálytermekben, illetve terápiás csoportokban vívott küzdelmekről. Megrázó gyermeksorsokat bemutató könyvei sorra kerülnek fel a sikerlistákra.
