Partie intégrante de l'enseignement du ninja, le hojojutsu ou art des cordes, consiste à immobiliser de manière sécurisée. Ce savoir est enseigné depuis le XIVe siècle et, comme tous les arts martiaux, il est à fois précis, élégant et emprunt d'éthique samouraï. Enseigné dans les vieilles écoles martiales, cet art faillit disparaître avec l'arrivée des arts martiaux modernes mais avec ce livre (le premier du genre), richement illustré et commenté, Christian Russo a pour ambition de faire revivre ce savoir ancestral. Constitué de plus de 250 illustrations et photographies, ce livre présente l'histoire, la philosophie, les outils de la pratique et l'éthique de l'art des cordes du samouraï. Il comprend aussi la reproduction d'un authentique rouleau densho (enseignements secrets) d'une école de hojojutsu datant de 1797 : le Seigo Ryu Nawa Sho.

Children who have autism require comprehensive educational and treatment services. There are a myriad of approaches currently recommended to practitioners and parents, but little is known about their efficacy. Which are the most effective in teaching skills, overcoming behavior challenges, and improving quality of life? Methods must be based in research settings, but be easily extended to real world settings where children with autism live, go to school, socialize, and recreate. Identifying and validating effective practices is a complex and multi-faceted process, but an essential one for responsible research and practice. This book brings together multiple and contemporary perspectives on intervention effectiveness for autism education and behavior support. With contributors from a variety of disciplines and orientations, Effective Practices for Children with Autism presents a critical appraisal of current practice standards, emphasizing empirically supported procedures and research-to-practice applications. By bringing together a diverse group of authors, the editors have ensured that the vast field of information on interventions for children with autism is thoroughly examined, and that no topic has gone untouched. Written for practitioners, research scientists, and clinicians, the book is an essential framework for evaluating educational and treatment procedures, selecting those that are most effective, and evaluating outcomes.
