The land of decoration : a novel by Grace McCleen( Book )

55 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 1,393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Judith and her father don't have much but Judith sees the world with the clear Eyes of Faith, and where others might see rubbish, Judith sees possibility. Bullied at school, she finds solace in making a model of the Promised Land - a world of wonder that Judith calls The Land of Decoration. Perhaps, she thinks, if she makes snow indoors there will be no school on Monday. Sure enough, when Judith opens her curtains the next day, the world beyond her window has turned white. She has performed her first miracle - and that's when her troubles begin
The Professor of Poetry by Grace McCleen( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Dutch and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A poem wrapped in brown paper. A man, a woman, a city, and a past that must not be remembered. Elizabeth Stone, a respected academic, has a new lease on life. In remission from cancer, she returns to the city where she was a student over thirty years ago to investigate some little-known papers by T.S. Eliot, which she believes contain the seeds of her masterpiece; a masterpiece that centres on a poem given to her when she was eighteen by the elusive Professor Hunt ... But as the days pass in the city she loves and her friendship with Professor Hunt is rekindled, her memories return her to a time shadowed by loneliness, longing and quiet despair, and to an undeclared but overwhelming love. Paralysed by the fear of writing something worthless, haunted by a sense of waste, Elizabeth Stone comes to realise she is facing the biggest test of her life
The offering by Grace McCleen( Book )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I thought it began the day Father came home without work. Then I thought perhaps it really began the day we arrived at the farm, rumbled up the track, opened the gate and stood looking around as if we had found ourselves in some enchanted land ... Something happened on Madeline's fourteenth birthday, something so traumatic that it triggered her mental breakdown. Many years later, she still can't - or perhaps won't - recall the events of that night. A charismatic new psychiatrist, Dr Lucas, believes he can unlock Madeline's memory by taking her step by step through the preceding year, when her father moved the family to an island he was certain God had guided them to. Money was short, her mother often unwell and her father a volatile presence. Yet Madeline loved their rural idyll, sensing God in every blade of grass; and when things started to go wrong, she thought she knew how to put them right. But as Dr Lucas unearths the past, it becomes apparent that she was seriously misguided - and that he is treading on very dangerous ground. Lyrically evoking the rhythms and beauty of the natural world, The Offering is a novel taut with foreboding, a haunting tale of misplaced faith and a heartbreakingly damaged psyche

Ti år gamle Judith McPherson og faren bor i et hus fullt av gamle gjenstander og eier lite av verdi. Men der andre ser søppel, ser Judith muligheter. Hun bygger derfor en modell av Guds lovede "Prydelsens land" med mennesker av piperensere, elver av aluminiumsfolie og fjell av pappmasjé og bark. Og hva hvis Judith nå hadde lagd snø av barberskum, bomull og cellofan? Da hadde skolen kanskje holdt stengt på mandag? Da Judith åpner øynene neste dag, er verden utenfor helt hvit. Hun har utført det første mirakelet. Og dermed starter også problemene for Judith og faren. Denne debutromanen er en oppvekstskildring om ensomhet, lengsel og savn

Vagal tone and depression in adolescents: Protective factors during parent-adolescent interaction by Grace McCleen( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Vagal tone, an index of emotion regulation, is related to a number of mental health outcomes in youth, including depressive risk and symptomology. The current study examined the role that vagal tone, as measured by respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) at rest and during emotionally relevant stressors, plays in adolescent symptoms of depression. Mothers and their adolescents (ages 11-17) participated as dyads (N = 58) in paced-breathing and real-time family interaction tasks to assess patterns in vagal tone. Outcome measures were resting RSA, RSA reactivity, and adolescent-report of depressive symptomology at the time of visit and during two follow-up sessions. Multilevel modeling significantly predicted adolescent depression from multiple interactions between RSA and affect, including a three-way interaction between adolescent resting and reactive RSA and positive maternal affect during the conflict task. These analyses provide novel evidence that adolescent RSA reactivity measured during a parent-adolescent interaction task is related to youth depressive symptomology over time
Youth emotion regulation and processing: risk and resilience factors in the context of maternal depression by Grace McCleen( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Differences in emotion processing and regulation are implicated in many psychosocial outcomes in youth, and may be measured not only by self-report, but also by objective psychophysiological response to stimuli. A growing literature identifies central nervous system patterns of emotion regulation and processing to be a risk/resilience factor in childhood and adolescent depression, yet relatively little is known about what can affect and predict these patterns. The current study will extend research on peripheral measures of emotion regulation into investigation of the role that electroencephalographic (EEG) emotion regulation and processing patterns play in risk for youth depression, especially in the context of maternal depression. Mothers and their daughters (ages 10-14) participated as dyads (N = 26) in a laboratory visit after completing self-report assessments. Daughters viewed a series of emotional faces to provoke brain response to affective stimuli via the late positive potential (LPP) EEG component. Outcome measures are daughter LPP to happy, neutral, and sad faces, youth self-report of cognitive emotion regulation style, youth-report of parenting behaviors, and maternal and youth self-report of depressive symptomology near time of visit. Results showed the relationship between maternal depression and youth LPP was moderated by two youth cognitive emotion regulation scales - acceptance and positive reappraisal - as well as two youth-reported parenting styles - parental involvement and positive parenting. Clinical implications suggest that these operate as risk/resilience factors for adaptive emotion processing
