The Social-Emotional Guidebook: Motivate Children with Social Challenges to Master Social & Emotional Coping Skills

release date: Sep 14, 2020
The Social-Emotional Guidebook: Motivate Children with Social Challenges to Master Social & Emotional Coping Skills
Brimming with clinical wisdom gathered over two decades, this Guidebook unveils a framework for compassionate social and coping skill training for caregivers, educators, and therapists. The strategies you encounter here can benefit any child, but they were originally created to support children with ADHD, mild Autism, learning differences, and related self-regulation challenges. You’ll discover positive responses and language-scripts that celebrate successes and problem-solve social miscues and emotional overreactions. You’ll develop nuanced interventions that resolve each level of frustration and decrease unnecessary meltdowns and shutdowns. The objective is to become skilled at increasing motivation, cooperation, and collaboration while decreasing conflict, defiance, and refusal behaviors in your child. This Guidebook neatly integrates with and enhances any social skills or S.E.L. (Social Emotional Learning) curriculum. Discover how Mike Fogel’s culture of positivity puts you in the driver’s seat of the training process while your child blossoms with self-determination and self-responsibility. As the director of the Art of Friendship Social-Coping Program since 2000, Mike revolutionized social and emotional coping skills training for children and adolescents using visual communication. Mike preaches that the most powerful social training program requires caregivers at home and school to take an active role in helping the child implement the skills. That’s weighty responsibility for caregivers and professionals, but unless you have training in behaviorism and social skill development, it’s hard to know how to do it. When do you push and when do you back off? What’s the difference between a social miscue and misbehavior? How do you help without destroying your child’s self-esteem or your relationship? This book answers those questions and more with compassion and optimism.

Key By Key

Key By Key
Maybe you''ve tried to learn the piano before. Maybe you''ve given up. Maybe you''re searching for something that''s missing from your last how-to piano book. Many methods focus on teaching you all the basics in one key signature, usually C Major, because it''s easiest to navigate on the keys. After playing dozens of songs in C Major, or sometimes an entire book of songs, you finally graduate to the next key where you''ll need to learn dozens of songs in that key before mastering it. This method often leads to frustration when you''re finally introduced to a new key as it feels totally foreign. The Key By Key approach focuses on learning only a few songs in each key and then moving on to the next to fully immerse you in the world of piano. The reality of the music realm is only some songs are written in C Major! No matter what kind of music you want to play, you''ll need to know how to play in all eight of the most commonly used keys, and eventually it''s helpful to know all 24.Think of each key signature as its own room down a long corridor of closed doors. Each of the 24 doors, labeled with their unique key name, is locked as you first move in to this eclectic, antique castle. Now picture each unit of this book as a key that you discover and learn how to use. Now you can enter each room and familiarize yourself with its individual decor and vibe along with the techniques you''ll need to live comfortably in each environment.Come with me to discover our first key: C Major. But don''t get too comfortable there. Our goal is to open many doors in the corridor of your music success!

Liquidity at Risk: Joint Stress Testing of Solvency and Liquidity

release date: Jun 05, 2020
Liquidity at Risk: Joint Stress Testing of Solvency and Liquidity
The traditional approach to the stress testing of financial institutions focuses on capital adequacy and solvency. Liquidity stress tests have been applied in parallel to and independently from solvency stress tests, based on scenarios which may not be consistent with those used in solvency stress tests. We propose a structural framework for the joint stress testing of solvency and liquidity: our approach exploits the mechanisms underlying the solvency-liquidity nexus to derive relations between solvency shocks and liquidity shocks. These relations are then used to model liquidity and solvency risk in a coherent framework, involving external shocks to solvency and endogenous liquidity shocks arising from these solvency shocks. We define the concept of ‘Liquidity at Risk’, which quantifies the liquidity resources required for a financial institution facing a stress scenario. Finally, we show that the interaction of liquidity and solvency may lead to the amplification of equity losses due to funding costs which arise from liquidity needs. The approach described in this study provides in particular a clear methodology for quantifying the impact of economic shocks resulting from the ongoing COVID-19 crisis on the solvency and liquidity of financial institutions and may serve as a useful tool for calibrating policy responses.

A European Minimum Wage: Implications for Poverty and Macroeconomic Imbalances

A European Minimum Wage: Implications for Poverty and Macroeconomic Imbalances
A hypothetical European Minimum Wage (MW) set at 60 percent of each country’s median wage would reduce in-work poverty but have limited effects on overall poverty, as many poor households do not earn a wage near MW and higher unemployment, higher prices, and a loss of social insurance benefits may erode direct benefits. Turning to competitiveness, since the MW increase to reach the European standard would be larger in euro area countries with excessive external surpluses, the associated real appreciation should help curb existing imbalances. However, a few countries with already weak external positions would experience an undesirable real appreciation.

The System Has Failed

The System Has Failed
"Terrell wasn''t raised in the corrupt streets of Detroit. After being abused and left for dead by his violent, psychotic father, he was raised by his aunt in uncle in a loving home in the suburbs. However, he never lost touch with his mother, whose selfish scheming sparked the fire that led to that fateful night when Terrell became disabled. Now that he''s an adult, his tainted bloodline has other plans for the wheelchair-bound teenager. Throwing away his silver spoon, Li''l T easily favors an oversized .40-cal he keeps tucked on his lap. With Simone, his wicked-minded mother, co-signing his every criminal move, Terrell hopes he can rise up to be half the man he believes his deceased father was, even though Kamal was the one to put him in the iron-wheeled casket. A product of the system, Terrell is haunted by his past, but he''s determined not to let anything stop his shine."--Page [4] of cover.

Measuring Financial Access

Measuring Financial Access
This departmental paper marks the 10th anniversary of the IMF Financial Access Survey (FAS). It offers a retrospective of the FAS database, along with some reflections as to its future directions. Since its 2009 launch, the FAS has provided granular data on access to and use of financial services. It is a supply-side database with annual global coverage based on data sourced directly from financial service providers—aimed at supporting policymakers to target and evaluate financial inclusion policies. Its data collection has kept pace with financial innovation, such as the rise of mobile money and growing demand for gender-disaggregated data—and the FAS must continue to evolve.

Stress Testing in Sub-Saharan Africa

release date: May 11, 2020
Stress Testing in Sub-Saharan Africa
The paper finds that supervisory stress tests are conducted in more than half of sub-Saharan African countries, particularly in western and southern Africa, and that the number of individual stress tests has grown exponentially since the early 2010s. By contrast, few central banks publish assessments of macro-financial linkages; the focus leans more toward discussing trends and weaknesses within the financial sector than on outside risks that may negatively affect its performance.

Finance and Inequality

release date: Jan 17, 2020
Finance and Inequality
The study examines empirical relationships between income inequality and three features of finance: depth (financial sector size relative to the economy), inclusion (access to and use of financial services by individuals and firms), and stability (absence of financial distress). Using new data covering a wide range of countries, the analysis finds that the financial sector can play a role in reducing inequality, complementing redistributive fiscal policy. By expanding the provision of financial services to low-income households and small businesses, it can serve as a powerful lever in helping create a more inclusive society but—if not well managed—it can amplify inequalities.

Governance and State-Owned Enterprises: How Costly is Corruption?

Governance and State-Owned Enterprises: How Costly is Corruption?
State-owned enterprises (SOEs) are present in key sectors of the economies around the world. While they can provide an important public service, there is widespread concern that their activities are negatively affected by corruption. However, there is limited cross-country analysis on the costs of corruption for SOEs. We present new evidence on how corruption affects the performance of SOEs using firm level data across a large number of countries. One striking result is that SOEs perform as well as private firms in core sectors when corruption is low. Taking advantage of a novel database reforms, we also show that SOE governance reforms can generate significant performance gains.

Reassessing the Role of State-Owned Enterprises in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe
The Central, Eastern, and South Eastern European (CESEE) region is ripe for a reassessment of the role of the state in economic activity. The rapid income convergence with Western Europe of the early 2000s was not always equally shared across society, and it has now slowed dramatically in many countries of the region.
