Behavioural Phenotypes in Clinical Practice by Gregory O'Brien
Book DescriptionClinics in Developmental Medicine No. 157 Clinicians, educators and other specialists who work with young people with intellectual disabilities are increasingly aware of the extent to which their clients' behaviours are shaped by the respective causal syndrome. This book is a practical response to the need for interventions and ongoing care programmes to take account of this within the context of coordinated multimodal case planning. An international team of experts drawn from child health, special education, psychology, psychiatry and related disciplines explores general principles of case management, in addition to giving consideration to a large number of individual syndromes, resulting in a comprehensive review of the subject. All of the authors have been involved in original research on the themes explored, and in the development of coherent service responses to the challenges posed by behavioural phenotypes. This will be essential reading for all professionals engaged in the care and management of people with intellectual disabilities.

Futuna: Life of a Building, Hardback (June 2016)
Since its grand opening in 1961, Wellington's Futuna Chapel - devised by architect John Scott and artist Jim Allen - has held a singular place in New Zealand's cultural history. Futuna: Life of a Building tells the remarkable story of the chapel's inception and construction, and its status beyond as well as within the architectural world.
ACB with Honora Lee, Hardback (October 2015)
Every Saturday Perry and her father visit her gran, Honora Lee, at the Santa Lucia retirement home. Honora is outspoken and sull of surprises. Perry adores her, but Gran's memory is failing. As Perry compiles an ABC of life at Santat Lucia for a school project, it seems to her that Gran is losing words just as quickly as she is collecting them.
Whale Years, Paperback (March 2015)
Between 2011 and 2014, poet and artist Gregory O'Brien found himself following the migratory routes of whales and seabirds across vast tracts of the South Pacific Ocean, resulting in work that O'Brien describes as "acts of devotion - a homage to a series of remarkable locations and to the natural histories of those places".
Beauties of the Octagonal Pool, Paperback (February 2012)» View all books by Gregory O'Brien
Centres on the 'octagonal pool' of the Waitemata Harbour. A gazing ball, an infinity pool, an endless sea, an organic compass, a contrapuntal spring, a glorious parrot, a bounded harbour - the octagonal pool might reflect where we've been to, or where we are going. This is a good place to be marooned.
