While intended primarily as a guide to recovery for anyone who is experiencing depression, this book is also written with the relatives and friends of that person in mind, hoping they can make sense of what can be a difficult experience to grasp from the ‘outside’. Understanding the journey through depression by all who are affected can act as a bridge between people who feel isolated by depression and those who care about them. ’This book shows you the practical steps you can take to lift your mood; helps you listen to what depression may be trying to teach you about your life; and gives you a way to be with yourself when you feel most vulnerable. It is possible for any human being to lose their way, but it is equally possible for any human being to find their way. I hope this book supports and strengthens your recovery by showing that you have the inner strength to come through depression.’ Tony Bates.

They experienced immediate attraction. Soon they fell in love and got married, but had to deal with Lupé’s complex health problems. She tried valiantly to fight off her ailments. Her faith in Jesus Christ sustained her through her pain. Pasco rounds out this intimate journal with a tender glimpse into his own emotions and insights as his wife passed into the presence of the Lord, Whom they both loved. He shares his heartfelt recollection and devotional sentiment and gives God the Father, through His Son, Jesus Christ, all the glory, for He sent Pasco this 4’11” American Indian woman who became the love of his life. She gave him a wakeup call and inspired him to turn his life over to the Lord and become Born Again. I’m 4’11” and Going to Heaven is written in memory of Lupé as she always used to say, “I’m 4’11” and I’m going to heaven!” Now Pasco feels he hears Lupé’s spirit saying, “I’m 4’11” and I’m IN heaven!”

People with Asperger Syndrome have many characteristics that are frequently seen in a negative light. Brenda Boyd shows that for every characteristic of AS that can be looked at negatively, there are several positive aspects that can be drawn on and developed. Discussing AS in general terms, she talks through the reasons why people with AS approach life in the way they do, and what an enormous contribution they make to the world. She then explores different characteristics of AS; while she acknowledges the negative perception so many people have of these characteristics, she points out the large number of advantages to the Aspergers way of thinking for individuals with AS, those around them and society as a whole. For every negative, Boyd proves there are many more positives. From their refreshing honesty to their originality and potential to become leaders rather than followers, people with AS have many admirable personality traits that should be nurtured. This book shows that by adjusting our perceptions of what is 'normal' and embracing diversity, AS can not only be understood and accepted, but appreciated. Appreciating Asperger Syndrome is a celebration of AS which should be read by individuals with AS, family members, and anyone who knows or works professionally with individuals with AS.

How do lesbians and gays negotiate their sexual identities in mental health care contexts? How do they manage the institutional homophobia and heterosexism embedded in health care practice and practitioners? Using interpretive phenomenology, Hazel Platzer overturns limiting dualisms to describe the ways in which lesbians and gays are silenced and pathologized in their mental health care encounters, how they resist, and how their resistance can restrict access to care. She highlights the difficulties of researching a sensitive topic with a relatively “hidden” population, and devises innovative techniques for handling bias and a multi-methods approach to the phenomenological study of experience and identities. She then offers proactive steps toward creating a health care environment in which lesbian and gay identities are normalized, improving both access to and quality of health care.

Behavioral activation is a stand-alone treatment whose principles can be integrated easily with other approaches that therapists already use.

Rich clinical illustrations include an extended case example that runs throughout the book. Twenty-two reproducible forms, worksheets, and tables can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.

Hollywood: The Oral History covers the history of Hollywood from the Silent era up to the 21st century. What makes this book unique from any other survey of Hollywood's history is that it is the history of an art form through the words of those people who created it - from Harold Lloyd to Katharine Hepburn to Warren Beatty to Jane Fonda and beyond, including directors, writers, producers, editors, designers of sets and costumes. As such, the authenticity of the text is irrefutable. The material in the book - gathered over the decades by the American Film Institute - has never been published before, has never been heard before. It is comprehensive - a monument that will never age nor be surpassed.

Seeing God Through Hurt, has been a blessing to many people who have read or even received a copy from someone else. The feedback that my staff and I get have been very positive and encouraging. When something can motivate or encourage someone in there own life is what any author should want when they publish an inspirational book. I have been blessed to do many radio inverviews, television interviews and several seminars. With this book we are working on workshops that are to help others overcome stuations, and issues that they may be facing and unsure as to how to get through. Seeing God through Hurt is the tool and book just for people who think they cannot make it through, and as I state in my book all things are possible with God!!!! See you at my next book signing. Follow me with events on my website at "scarterinspirations.jimdo.com". Sincerly, Your Author of the faith, Sandra K. Carter

A powerful workshop-in-a-book for healing from loss One day everything is fine. The next, you find yourself without everything you took for granted. Love has turned sour. The people you depended on have let you down. You feel you’ll never love again. But there is a way out. In The Abandonment Recovery Workbook, the only book of its kind, psychotherapist and abandonment expert Susan Anderson explores the seemingly endless pain of heartbreak and shows readers how to break free—whether the heartbreak comes from a divorce, a breakup, a death, or the loss of friendship, health, a job, or a dream. From the first shock of despair through the waves of hopelessness to the tentative efforts to make new connections, The Abandonment Recovery Workbook provides an itinerary for recovery. A manual for individuals or support groups, it includes exercises that the author has tested and developed through her decades of expertise in abandonment recovery. Anderson provides concrete recovery tools and exercises to discover and heal underlying issues, identify self-defeating behaviors of mistrust and insecurity, and build self-esteem. Guiding you through the five stages of your journey—shattering, withdrawal, internalizing, rage, and lifting—this book (a new edition of Anderson’s Journey from Heartbreak to Connection) serves as a source of strength. You will come away with a new sense of self—a self with an increased capacity to love. Praise for Susan Anderson’s The Journey from Abandonment to Healing: “If there can be a pill to cure the heartbreak of rejection, this book may be it.” — Rabbi Harold Kushner, bestselling author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People
