SOS Help for Emotions – Managing Anxiety, Anger & Depression
by: Lynn Clark Ph.D.

“SOS Help For Emotions – Managing Anxiety, Anger, And Depression is a self-help book that is fun to read and easy to apply. By understanding and applying insights and techniques from this book, you will learn useful self-help methods from cognitive behavior therapy. You will gain insight into changing your thoughts and feelings and for becoming more successful in attaining your goals. Knowing the five steps of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) will help you to deal with difficult people more effectively. Most people believe that bad events (such as a large credit card debt) and unpleasant people (an overly critical boss) directly cause high levels of anxiety, anger, depression and other miserable feelings. However, SOS teaches what we believe and tell ourselves about the bad events and those difficult people primarily determine our upsetness. When you believe that other people and bad events directly cause your emotions, how do you go about helping yourself to feel better? You cannot help yourself feel better. You are stuck in a rut if you believe that you must change other people or the world before you can feel better. Some people think getting very angry will cause others to change. However, others will not change as a result of your anger. Successful people find a way to change their anger into calmness and then to go about achieving their goals. SOS teaches you the steps for managing anxiety, anger, depression, and other unpleasant feelings. Our Beliefs and Self-Talk primarily cause our feelings and behavior and not bad events and difficult people. SOS teaches the reality that we are responsible for managing our feelings and behavior. SOS was updated in 2008 with the best self-help techniques from cognitive behavior therapy, the most effective form of modern therapy. Used internationally by adults, older teens, and counselors, SOS is available in English, Spanish, Turkish, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean. Included are exercises, quizzes, 100 engaging illustrations, and accompanying free resources at SOS Programs. Visit the Amazon Lynn Clark author page to learn more.”

The Body Never Lies – The Lingering Effects of Cruel Parenting
by: Alice Miller

“Never before has world-renowned psychoanalyst Alice Miller examined so persuasively the long-range consequences of childhood abuse on the body. Using the experiences of her patients along with the biographical stories of literary giants such as Virginia Woolf, Franz Kafka, and Marcel Proust, Miller shows how a child’s humiliation, impotence, and bottled rage will manifest itself as adult illness—be it cancer, stroke, or other debilitating diseases. Never one to shy away from controversy, Miller urges society as a whole to jettison its belief in the Fourth Commandment and not to extend forgiveness to parents whose tyrannical childrearing methods have resulted in unhappy, and often ruined, adult lives. In this empowering work, writes Rutgers professor Philip Greven, “readers will learn how to confront the overt and covert traumas of their own childhoods with the enlightened guidance of Alice Miller.”

Self Matters – Creating Your Life from the Inside Out
by: Dr. Phil McGraw

What if there is a You that has never seen the light of day, has never got to say, “Hey, what about me?”

What if there is a You that you have never even met and certainly never permitted to just be, without fear of judgment or condemnation?

What if you live your life on the sidelines in constant fear of failing to please those who forever seem to stand in judgment of you and your life?

What if you discovered that you had settled for what life has served up instead of what you really wanted and needed?

What if you really think and feel things you have never allowed to come out, and certainly never acted on?

What if your marriage is not at all what you really emotionally want and need, but you silently stay the course anyway, selling out your hope to be happy?

What if you are allowing days to turn into weeks and weeks to turn into months and months to turn into years, all adding up to a lifetime of being what some nameless, faceless world has assigned you to be?

If any of these “What ifs” are true in your life, then we need to talk, and through these pages, we will. First, I have some bad news, and I have some good news. The bad news is you are making the choices that have put you in this life circumstance; the good news is you are making the choices that have put you in this life circumstance. Now is the time to make the biggest choice of your life. Through Self Matters, I will help you do just that.”

Where to Draw the Line: How to Set Healthy Boundaries Every Day
by: Anne Katherine, M.A.

“Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

In the perennial favorite Boundaries, Anne Katherine introduced the concept and importance of personal limits. In Where to Draw the Line, she takes the next step with a practical guide to establishing and maintaining healthy boundaries in a wide range of situations.With every encounter, we either demonstrate that we’ll protect what we value or that we’ll give ourselves away. Healthy boundaries preserve our integrity. Unlike defenses, which isolate us from our true selves and from those we love, boundaries filter out harm.

This book provides the tools and insights needed to create boundaries so that we can allow time and energy for the things that matter — and helps break down limiting defenses that stunt personal growth. Focusing on every facet of daily life — from friendships and sexual relationships to dress and appearance to money, food, and psychotherapy — Katherine presents case studies highlighting the ways in which individuals violate their own boundaries or let other people breach them. Using real-life examples, from self-sacrificing mothers to obsessive neat freaks, she offers specific advice on making choices that balance one’s own needs with the needs of others.

Boundaries are the unseen structures that support healthy, productive lives. Where to Draw the Line shows readers how to strengthen them and hold them in place every day.”

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff with Your Family: Simple Ways to Keep Daily Responsibilities and Household Chaos From Taking Over Your Life
by: Richard Carlson Ph.D.

“While it’s easy to allow little things to take over our lives, there are things we can do to make life around the house less stressful,” writes Richard Carlson in Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff with Your Family: Simple Ways to Keep Daily Responsibilities and Household Chores from Taking Over Your Life. In this collection of 98 brief essays, Carlson (author of Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff … And It’s All Small Stuff) meditates on small, but meaningful ways to avoid being overwhelmed by life, particularly family life. From Number 8: Make Peace with Bickering, to Number 14: Encourage Boredom in Your Children, to Number 72: Stop Exaggerating Your Workload, Carlson’s messages serve as reminders for truisms most readers already know but have lost sight of in the bustle of daily life. Carlson’s “ways” may be simple, but simplicity is not stupid–his book offers vital injections of wisdom. –Ericka Lutz

Generation Me: Why Today’s Young Americans are More Confident, Assertive, Entitled, and More Miserable Than Ever Before
by: Jean M. Twenge Ph.D.

“Called “The Entitlement Generation” or Gen Y, they are storming into schools, colleges, and businesses all over the country. In this provocative new book, headline-making psychologist and social commentator Dr. Jean Twenge explores why the young people she calls “Generation Me”—those born in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s—are tolerant, confident, open-minded, and ambitious but also cynical, depressed, lonely, and anxious.

Herself a member of Generation Me, Dr. Twenge uses findings from the largest intergenerational research study ever conducted—with data from 1.3 million respondents spanning six decades—to reveal how profoundly different today’s young adults are. Here are the shocking truths about this generation, including dramatic differences in sexual behavior, as well as controversial predictions about what the future holds for them and society as a whole. Her often humorous, eyebrow-raising stories about real people vividly bring to life the hopes and dreams, disappointments, and challenges of Generation Me.

GenMe has created a profound shift in the American character, changing what it means to be an individual in today’s society. The collision of this generation’s entitled self-focus and today’s competitive marketplace will create one of the most daunting challenges of the new century. Engaging, controversial, prescriptive, funny, Generation Me will give Boomers new insight into their offspring, and help those in their teens, 20s, and 30s finally make sense of themselves and their goals and find their road to happiness.”

  • How will my child “bond” or form attachments to me?
  • When and how should I tell my child that he was adopted?

  • Will adoption make adolescent upheavals more complicated?

Up-to-date, sensitive, and clear, Raising Adopted Children is the definitive resource for all adoptive parents and concerned professionals.

Raising Children in A Changing World – Preschool Through Teen Years
by: Dian G. Smith

“Yes, the world is changing, but as Smith ( Parents’ Guide to Understanding Discipline ) points out in this informative and thought-provoking guide, it has changed for parents, not for children, who only know the world as it is now. In this new volume in the Children’s Television Workshop Family Living series, Smith shatters nostalgic illusions about family life in the “good old days” by pointing out, for instance, that in 18th-century America, most mothers were too busy with housekeeping and farm work to make children the center of their attention. Smith tackles thorny issues head-on in such chapters as “New Roles for Parents: Divorced, Single, and Step-” and “Is the World Really a More Dangerous Place?” “What’s New About Sex?” emphasizes the importance of parents taking responsibility for educating their children about sex, and “What’s New About Drugs?” says building a child’s self-esteem is the best form of drug prevention. Enjoyable to read and briskly paced, this book offers pertinent, level-headed advice (“good judgment and a set of personal values” are the best tools for child-rearing), highlighted by parents’ heartfelt and insightful comments. ”

Help Me, I’m Married
by: Joyce Meyer

“With God, It’s Never Too Late to Improve Your Marriage Dear Reader, Many people enter into a marriage because they’re expecting the other person to do something for them, to give them something, to “Make me happy.” But we need to look at marriage from the standpoint of giving, not getting. When each partner fully gives him- or herself over to thinking of the other, “What can I do for you?” each will receive everything desired-and more besides. The Bible says, “… It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35 KJV). And about marriage: “Let marriage be held in honor (esteemed worthy, precious, of great price, and especially dear) in all things… ” (Hebrews 13:4 AMP). A good marriage does not just happen, no matter how wildly in love you were when you got married. You have to be creative. Learn what the Word says and practice it. There’s nothing better than a really great marriage, and nothing worse than a bad one. Discover how to grow blessings and happiness in your marriage. Do this and you’ll bring great victories into your home-greater than you could ever imagine. Joyce Meyer.”
