Post-Romantic Stress Disorder
By John Bradshaw
John Bradshaw is arguably the most accomplished and well-known leader alive today in the addictions field. He taught us about functional and dysfunctional families, showed us how shame could become toxic and poisonous to our core selves, and helped us understand and heal the wounded, vulnerable 'inner child' conceived by, and thriving in, that environment. In Post-Romantic Stress Disorder (PRSD), John Bradshaw gives readers a clear explanation of the difference between falling in love, lust and true love. Based on his research, PRSD is a serious psychological disorder and the cause of 40 per cent of all divorces - divorces that could have been prevented. Every day people throw away perfectly good relationships because they just don't know how to navigate the tides, but if they could learn and understand the concepts Bradshaw presents in this book, the portrait of the family unit could have a whole new landscape. Join this great teacher as he tackles issues that threaten and endanger so many modern relationships. Be encouraged as he leads the way to a deeper and more fulfilling partnership. As he so eruditely observed some time ago, 'As the health of the marriage goes, so goes the health of the family'. Yet Bradshaw ladles out hope unlimited - if parents could restore a deep, authentic love for each other it could be passed on to their children and relationships and families would flourish.
Papadaddy's Book for New Fathers
By Clyde Edgerton
After three decades of being a father, Clyde Edgerton-with four kids ranging in age from six to 30-is supremely qualified to give tips to dads of all ages. His fathering advice, pre-birth through schooling, involves plenty of his trademark humor, but also sound guidance enhanced by his training and experience as an educator. Papa Edgerton suggests that on occasion a father might forego reading and just point to the pictures of dogs and cats in baby books, and also that he might place a blanket on the lawn, lie on his back with the whole family, and watch Sky Television. Edgerton's humorous and helpful counsel will guide new parents on interacting with in-laws and coping with sleep deprivation, while also providing strategies for recovery after you've cursed in front of a mimicking baby. "If you don't feel apprehensive just before your first child is to arrive, you are abnormal," writes Edgerton. Yet by way of his experience, observation, and imagination, he provides caution and pure joy in equal measure.
