Dr. Edward F. Dragan, Author of the Soon to be Released Book, ‘Keeping Kids Safe in School: What Every Parent and Teacher Should Know,’ Comments on Keeping Students Safe


Lambertville, NJ (PRWEB) August 22, 2007

Dr. Edward F. Dragan, author of the soon to be released book, Keeping Kids Safe in School: What Every Parent and Teacher Should Know, comments on keeping our students safe. School safety and liability expert, Dr. Edward F. Dragan states, “Unnecessary risks in schools must be corrected, most importantly to protect the safety of students, faculty and support staff, but also to eliminate costly litigation and settlements. Implementing regular assessments of school safety policies and procedures can greatly reduce risks.”

Dr. Dragan remarks, “All too often we hear after the fact, ‘How did this accident happen?’ or ‘Could the school have prevented it?” “Unfortunately once the accident occurs; it is too late to ask these questions, a school’s risk management plan must be proactive to be effective.”

Our nation’s schools pay millions of dollars annually in damages to school children injured in class, sexually assaulted by teachers, and harassed by fellow students. New Jersey alone faced 381 suits-more than one case a day-representing a potential liability of over 500 million dollars. This total does not include cases filed in administrative court, which typically hear special education issues. Since most cases settle privately, the general public and even some education insiders are not aware of the scope of such liability.

The following three recent instances chronicle occurrences that could have been avoided had the schools developed a risk analysis plan identifying potential safety hazards, emphasizing accountability and establishing procedures for creating and maintaining a hazard free school.

A 1.7 million dollar verdict was awarded to a third-grade student told by her teacher to return a television cart with a television on its top shelf to the library. The cart fell, causing the television to strike the student, whose injury resulted in permanent brain damage. A federal court jury decided the school was partially liable for the accident due to the student’s lack of supervision. This unfortunate incident could have been prevented if teachers and administrators had assessed the risks of allowing young children to move such equipment.

A private settlement was reached in a similar case. A board of education paid $ 850,000 to a five year old student with autism who was seriously injured when a fifty pound television fell and struck him on the head. When evidence of inadequate supervision pointed to the school’s liability the case was settled.

The coach of a girl’s track team and a student who threw his javelin one more time after the coach announced practice was over both shared payment of a $ 300,000 settlement to a student who received permanent nerve damage and facial paralysis when the javelin struck her in the face. The coach was responsible for the students while they were using potentially dangerous equipment.

Most cases of school safety violations could be prevented through practice of proactive risk management. Teachers and administrators must scrutinize their procedures, equipment use and personal practices for ways to ensure the safety of everyone concerned. Schools must follow risk management guidelines to improve overall school safety and to eliminate the high costs of accident related litigation. Although insurance companies usually pay these settlements, schools and taxpayers will ultimately have the burden of higher taxes and insurance premiums.

Dr. Dragan comments, “School administrators must develop a systematic procedure for inspecting school premises and reviewing safety procedures for evidence of potential risks. An inspection log should be established to record potential risks along with the remedial action taken to eliminate the unsafe hazard or procedure.”

In addition, Dr. Dragan suggests the following risk management guidelines to maximize school safety and security. “School administrators should assess potential risk related to all equipment in proximity or accessible to students. A safety handbook that details procedures for supervising students in all school areas should be established.”

“Administrators need to conduct in-service training and review of first-aid practices, crisis response strategies, school evacuation drills, and alternative communication methods to use, if warranted, during potential crises.”

Dr. Dragan also remarks, “Each faculty member must be aware of their specific responsibilities related to safety and should have prioritized action system available to them to effect needed safety corrections in a timely matter. Administrators need to model and emphasize personal accountability and commitment to create and maintain school safety and security procedures.”

“School administrators who demonstrate a proactive commitment to safeguarding the welfare of students, faculty members and support staff will produce safe and secure school campuses and climates which will reduce potential school liability.”

Dragan, Ed.D. is the founder of Education Management Consulting, LLC, providing consultation to school administrators and education expert witness services to attorneys on education-related issues including school management, safety, bullying, sexual harassment, child custody, and special education .

Author of New Wall Street Journal Bestseller, “The Ultimate Depression Survival Guide,” Donates All Royalties to Campaign to End Child Homelessness

Jupiter, Fla. (PRWEB) April 22, 2009

Martin D. Weiss, Ph.D, president of Weiss Research, Inc. and author of the new Wall Street Journal bestseller, “The Ultimate Depression Survival Guide,” is donating all of his book royalties to the Campaign to End Child Homelessness, sponsored by the National Center on Family Homelessness. Dr. Weiss presented the first donation ($ 100,000) to Dr. Ellen Bassuk, MD, president of the Center and author of America’s Youngest Outcasts, in a ceremony held at Weiss Research’s Florida headquarters on Friday.

“This donation is an integral aspect of our national grassroots campaign to Protect the People — Not the Banks!” commented Dr. Weiss. “We feel the government’s ongoing attempts to bail out failed financial institutions, such as AIG and Citigroup, are counterproductive in more ways than one. The bailouts not only reward high-risk speculation while punishing prudent investing, but they also divert precious resources desperately needed by the most innocent victims of the housing crisis.”

Dr. Bassuk added: “Even before the housing market collapse, one in 50 American children were homeless each year. Today, with millions of Americans losing their homes in foreclosures, there are certainly many more children on the edge of economic survival. We deeply appreciate Dr. Weiss’ generous contribution to our Campaign to End Child Homelessness.”

Dr. Weiss’ book, The Ultimate Depression Survival Guide: Protect Your Savings, Boost Your Income and Grow Wealthy Even in the Worst of Times (Wiley, April 2009, 978-0-470-39377-2, $ 27.95),provides clear, step-by-step instructions to all Americans on:

How to sell your home if you want to, or keep it if you don’t
How to protect your home from further losses
How to find a truly safe bank or insurer
How to build a substantial cash nest egg and keep it absolutely safe
What to do with your 401k, IRA or savings for your child’s education
The telltale signs will tip you off to a bottom in home prices, stocks and bonds
When to lock in safe, high yields on your money for years to come
Where to find the most promising profit opportunities in a recovery

Meanwhile, the Campaign to End Child Homelessness seeks to:

Strengthen local efforts to end child homelessness with direct assistance to states and communities;
Improve program design and service delivery to meet the unique needs of homeless children and their families; and
Increase public awareness of the scope and impact of homelessness on children.

Dr. Bassuk concludes: “Our Campaign to End Child Homelessness and Martin Weiss’ new book share a common theme–by taking action now, we can come through to see a brighter day.”

To purchase the book, consumers can visit http://www.UltimateDepressionSurvivalGuide.com or any national bookseller. Plus, readers and non-readers alike are invited to make charitable donations to the Campaign to End Child Homelessness at http://familyhomelessness.org/?q=node/14 or by calling 617-964-3834.

About Martin D. Weiss

Martin D. Weiss, Ph.D., founder and president of Weiss Research, Inc., is a nationally recognized expert on banking and insurance company solvency. With more than 35 years of experience, Dr. Weiss has helped empower millions of investors to make better financial decisions through his monthly Safe Money Report and daily Money and Markets.

Dr. Weiss, along with Weiss Research analyst Mike Larson, specifically named nearly all of the major institutions that have suffered a financial failure in this crisis. Weiss predicted the demise of Bear Stearns 102 days prior to its failure, Lehman Brothers (182 days prior), Fannie Mae (eight years prior), and Citigroup (110 days prior). Similarly, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) reported that, in the 1990s, Weiss greatly outperformed Moody’s, Standard & Poor’s, A.M. Best and D&P (now Fitch) in warning of future life insurance company failures. (See the Weiss forecast track at http://blogs.moneyandmarkets.com/martin-weiss/the-only-ones-who-warned-ahead-of-time/ and the GAO report at http://archive.gao.gov/t2pbat2/152669.pdf.)

About The National Center on Family Homelessness

The National Center on Family Homelessness, founded in 1988, is the nation’s foremost authority on family homelessness, and the only national organization dedicated solely to helping homeless families. Its Campaign to End Child Homelessness has already generated a strong positive response by the public, the national media, Congress and the White House. The Campaign’s legacy will be that all homeless children will receive the homes, opportunities, and support that they deserve as America’s youngest and most vulnerable citizens.

Author of Groundbreaking Caregiver’s Book to Speak at Cambridge Credit Counseling’s July Community Seminar


Agawam, MA (Vocus) July 3, 2009

The current economic downturn has forced many Americans to make substantial changes in their lifestyle. Across the country, families are dealing with the crisis of foreclosure, rapidly increasing unemployment, and a general lack of confidence in the economy’s ability to rebound. As life within the country becomes more challenging, perhaps the group most adversely affected is the elderly. Over the last two years, there’s been an increase in the number of elderly parents moving back in with their children, very likely out of economic necessity. Until now, there were very few resources to assist individuals who were thrust into the position of caregiver for their aging parents.

The recently released When Your Parent Moves In; Every Adult Child’s Guide to Living with an Aging Parent, written by David Horgan and Shira Block, is a book that addresses these issues head on. Through a series of personal stories, case studies and expert analysis, the book provides individuals with strategies they can use to make a successful transition to living with one’s parents. Among the topics discussed are the pros and cons of having an aging parent move in, the possible pitfalls of such a change and how to avoid them, adjusting the family dynamic, and most important, how to manage and protect everyone’s assets.

“Among the life changes our counselors help the public manage, having one’s parent’s move in is among the most intricate,” stated Christopher Viale, president and CEO of Cambridge Credit Counseling. “There are a host of concerns to consider, and, in that sense, the timing of Mr. Horgan’s book could not be better. It will make a fantastic resource for those faced with these circumstances by not only providing advice, but also empowering families to come closer together.”

Cambridge Credit Counseling is fortunate to have the author, David Horgan, conduct a special community seminar at their offices on July 15, 2009. Mr. Horgan will discuss a variety of topics from his book, with a special focus on the financial concerns of such an arrangement. Afterward, Cambridge’s certified credit counselors will be available for individualized sessions to help families establish budgets and address any other credit related concerns they may have.

Cambridge’s seminars are offered free to the public each month. Because space is limited, those interested in attending are encouraged to contact Thomas Fox at 413-241-2362 to reserve seating.

About the Authors:

David Horgan (Ludlow, MA) is an award-winning medical educator, filmmaker, and director who brings his firsthand account of what to do, what not to do, and what can happen (the good and the bad) when a parent moves in. He has been interviewed on this subject by USA Today and ABC News. Mr. Horgan has been repeatedly interviewed by NPR, ABC, NBC, CNN, USA Today, New York Times, Boston Globe, Boston Herald, Entertainment Weekly, and other media outlets.

Shira Block (Wilbraham, MA) is a popular lecturer, freelance writer, and personal coach. She is the author of The Way Home and Step-by-Step Miracles: A Practical Guide to Achieving Your Dream. She has a master’s degree in psychology and counseling with a concentration in family therapy.

Author to Offer Attachment Parenting Consultation for Parents of Children Ages 2-18 with Behavioral, Learning and Emotional Struggles


Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 4, 2010

Laurie A. Couture, author of Instead of Medicating and Punishing, offers attachment-focused phone, email and face-to-face consultation for parents and professionals who work with children and families. Laurie works with parents and professionals to help them understand three key points:


Behavioral acting-out, emotional instability and problems with school performance are alarm signals that alert us that something is distressing and hurting the child.

Contrary to popular belief, it is natural for adolescents to stay emotionally close and connected to their parents.

Children of all ages from infancy through late adolescence need specific parenting and educational environments in order to feel happy, thrive, cooperate and reach their full potentials.

Laurie will guide parents and professionals to:

Discover principles to help parents heal their relationships with their children, regardless of their age,

Identify the surprising parenting and learning conditions that children’s brains need for mental, emotional and behavioral health and for optimal learning,

Understand why behavior modification, rewards and punishments, diagnoses and medication do not heal children or make them happy, cooperative, compassionate people,

Differentiate between the popular therapies and special education services that can actually worsen the behavior and distress of children and which treatments lead to lasting solutions, and

Learn respectful, refreshing, natural discipline principles that parents can apply to facilitate family closeness and cooperation, respectful communication and empathy for others.

Laurie A. Couture appears in the recently released film documentary, The War on Kids, which was featured on The Colbert Report and MSNBCs Dr. Nancy. With years of experience as a mental health counselor, social worker and parenting trainer, Laurie has inside knowledge of how the educational and mental health systems keep families dependent upon family-eroding institutions, services and psychiatric drugs. Laurie has helped hundreds of children and families find relief, hope and closer relationships.

As a mom of a 16 year old boy, Laurie works compassionately with a diversity of families, including families who have had involvement by child protective services. Laurie offers family-preserving expertise to adoptive and kinship families. She works respectfully with families of all cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, as well as homeschooling and attachment-parenting families.

Author Shares A New Legacy for Incest Survivors

Ottawa, ON (Vocus/PRWEB) March 15, 2011

Xlibris, the self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of A New Legacy for Incest Survivors. Authored by Lucie G. Spear, this book is a moving, and ultimately triumphant look into what it takes to survive incest and go on to build a life full of rich, loving relationships, and creating a new legacy.

From the ages of nine to fourteen, Lucie Spear was sexually abused by her own father. Instead of describing the details of her abuse, Mrs. Spear shares her journey of recovery, clearly explaining the loss of self and family that results from an abuser breaking the most basic of trust between parent and child. She also manages to sympathetically convey the complex inter-family dynamics that emerge once incest is revealed.

So many victims of incest remain in a downhill spiral of negativity for most of their adult life. This book will most certainly help them rise above this traumatic experience. It is invaluable to all victims and survivors, who themselves have to face the harsh realities of the past, while trying to accept that they are not to blame, or that they are not alone, in having to deal with the conflicting feelings associated with incest.

Professionals who work with incest survivors will find some guidance through the minefield of taboo and denial that tend to accompany this traumatic experience. This book serves as a source of inspiration for all individuals that want to put a stop to the senseless crime of incest and the silence surrounding sexual abuse.

My heartfelt compassion and understanding goes out to all incest survivors. The mind, body, and soul know that there is a right way to love and be loved. I dedicate this book to all of you, for your courage in changing your legacy, says the author.

For more information on A New Legacy for Incest Survivors, interested parties may log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.

About the Author

Lucie G. Spear is a mother of one (and a proud grandmother of two), a sister to eight siblings, and most importantly an incest survivor. She lives happily with her partner of fourteen years in a small town outside of Ottawa, Ontario. For this first book, because incest permeated several generations of the authors lineage, the author uses a pseudonym to protect the familys privacy. This is to allow her siblings and relatives the time and space to heal without undue pressures from outside sources.

The pseudonym derives from the authors actual middle name, Gertrude, which means strength of spear. This name has given her the strength and courage she needed to publish this book and pierce the silence on this senseless crime done to children. At the age of 56, the author shares with her readers, without going into the details of the abuse, the steps that she has taken to heal and recover from the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of her father.

Author Cherylann Thomas Reaches Out to Victims of Abuse through Inspiring Memoir

BRITISH COLUMBIA, Canada (PRWEB) September 19, 2011

“Imagine growing up without a parents love. This is what author Cherylann Thomas wants readers to think about as she shares her provocative true story.

Evil Eyes: A Daughters Memoir straightforwardly follows Cherylanns chaotic journey growing up in an abusive family and how it has affected her psyche, her emotional well-being, and her feelings of self-worth.

Thomas is brutally honest in her account of a life filled with loss and abandonment by the very people, her family, who should have protected and loved her. As a child she grew up with a psychopath father, malignant narcissist mother, and sexual molesting stepfather. In this book, her ability to articulate her experiences is inspiring and gripping.

The neglect, the verbal attacks, the lack of love, and the blame and the shame my mother placed at my feet almost killed me. This is why my memoir must be written… I want to let people know they are not alone, and no one deserves to be assaulted physically, emotionally or sexually and they can get out, the author reveals.

Thomas point in writing Evil Eyes: A Daughters Memoir is not to bash her parents or siblings, or herself. She simply wants to educate readers by sharing her very personal and unabashed story, which hopefully will help others recognize if they are involved in a psychopathic or malignant narcissist relationship and on how they can get help to regain a healthy, happy life as soon as possible. She also forces the reader to take a hard look at the medical community and how they habitually fail children of abuse who often grow up with poor coping skills and self-defeating behaviors costing trillions of dollars in pharmaceuticals, hospitalizations, social service outlets, and prisons.

For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.

About the Author

Cherylann Thomas currently lives in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada. She now spends her time reading, writing, gardening, and spending quality time with her grandchildren. She loves to travel and explore other cultures. She hopes to investigate more on the subject of psychopathy and to help educate victims of their abuse and how to save themselves from their abusers. Thomas is currently writing a book to assist teenaged parents in raising their children to be healthy and happy adults. She has completely moved on from the family she grew up with so that she could begin to heal while continuing to help others in their quest for release from psychopaths, malignant narcissists, and sexual predators who reside not in the bushes, but in too many homes with easily accessible and vulnerable supply.

CLONING CHRIST By Best-Selling Author Peter Thomas Senese Exclusively Available On Amazon In E-Book


(PRWEB) December 24, 2011

Is it possible to Clone Christ?

According to author Peter Thomas Senese, the answer is an absolute ‘yes’.

CLONING CHRIST author Peter Thomas Senese’s electrifying best-selling theological thriller is now available in E-book format, including Amazon’s Kindle.

Peter Thomas Senese’s theological thrill ride, darting from Israel through Europe to the United States, focuses on Dr. Max Train, a leading genetic scientist from Syracuse, New York. Max was once a devout believer in God, but now lives a faithless life following the brutal slaying of his beloved wife and four year old autistic daughter twelve years ago.

After the widely publicized trial during which Max is rightfully found innocent of his family’s murder pinned on him by corrupt dark forces, Max vacations in Israel. During an earthquake outside of Jerusalem, he discovers what appears to be the True Cross Jesus of Nazareth was crucified on nearly two thousand years ago.

Max may hold the fate of Mankind in his hands. If this is the True Cross and Christ was cloned from the remaining blood stains and hair remnants on the cross, would government and religion become obsolete upon His Second Coming? If the blood stains and hair are those of Jesus, then what does this say about the long held belief Christ rose whole and entire upon his resurrection? Where would the battle lines be drawn between the advances in science and the beliefs of religion? What effect would this knowledge have on one’s faith and beliefs? Soon after, and in the hallowed halls of the Vatican a righteous Cardinal, Anselm Mugant, hears of the discovery in Jerusalem. Without the Pope’s knowledge and in clear opposition to all Catholic teaching, the wayward prelate will stop at nothing – even murder – in his bid to prevent human cloning from taking place, including his misconceived belief Max Train has intent to clone the possible body of Christ.

Mugant soon enlists the services of the internationally rumored assassin known simply as The Scorpion to track down Max and silence him with death. The Scorpion, a onetime penitent of the Cardinal, is a force of pure evil and who challenges life. He forces this same challenge onto Max as he casts a deadly shadow over his praised soul and every move he makes.

Adding intricate subterfuge to the plot is the existence of Mugant’s “Fifth Crusade”, five international industrialists with great power and reach devout in the Cardinal’s perspective on human genetic science, and controlled by Mugant’s knowledge of their deepest secrets. Together, Mugant launches an all-out attack to find the ancient artifacts in Train’s possession, and prevent the genetic scientist from doing the unthinkable in his eyes – announcing to the world a cross containing bodily remnants could indeed by the True Cross of Jesus of Nazareth – and clone the body of Christ!

Cloning Christ spins a tangled and intricate web of deceit, blackmail, violence, loss, faith, forgiveness, truth and acceptance in a story that questions the right to clone, while responding to the needs and harsh realities of life as we know it. Cloning Christ is the story of life and the sacredness of it, as shared in the novel that leaves you racing to turn the page.

Top Amazon book critic Harriett Klausner commented, “Fans will relish this thriller. The tale is loaded with action yet uses the characters as symbols of mankind similar to a medieval passion play like Everyman. The cast represents the faithful, the disbelievers, the dividers (torn between science and religion) or the selfish. “Cloning Christ” brings the debate of religion vs. science to the forefront in an exciting manner that focuses on the sacredness of life.”

Mr. Senese commented, “Cloning Christ is an absolute theological thriller that takes the reader directly to the question, ‘How would you clone Jesus of Nazareth – The Christ’? In my interpretation of that question, my answer is to follow His teachings – and that is to act best I can in kindness towards others while also being mindful not to be taken adavantage of in such acts. Still … writing and creating this story was at times joyful because it allowed me to think about many issues that brought me closer to my own faith. I am very pleased to know that years after its initial release, and with some very interesting things on the horizon for this story, readers everywhere will have access to this thoughtful and provocative story via e-book.”
