Authors:
Micki Fine

Do you have a hard time saying no to others, no matter how outrageous their requests? If so, you might be a chronic people-pleaser. Unfortunately, because we live in a society that praises putting the needs of others before ourselves, it can be difficult to break this bad habit. And while thinking of others is always commendable, there is a fine line between sacrifice and senseless approval seeking.In The Need to Please, a leading mindfulness expert and psychotherapist provides compassionate, mindfulness-based techniques that will help chronic people-pleasers like you address and overcome your fears of failure, inappropriate self-sacrificing, loss of personal identity, and voracious need of approval. In addition, you will learn to put an end to the codependent behaviors that lie at the heart of being a people-pleaser. Change is hard-especially when it means going against years of social conditioning. But if you're ready to "Just Say No," to others' demands and start saying, "Yes" to your own needs, this book can help.

The Attachment Connection

Ruth Newton
Authors:
Ruth Newton

Despite what some current child-development fads may claim, a child's future cognitive ability depends more on the emotional attunement between the parent and child than it does on cognitive stimulation, such as instructional flashcards or videos. Secure attachment gives kids a head start on development; they grow into well-adjusted, emotionally and psychologically stable, and resilient adults. This book looks at the biology of attachment theory: How does parent/child attunement affect the growth and development of the baby's brain and social and emotional functions?This book teaches parents to understand how their child's brain is developing at each stage of growth, how to foster social skills, and how attunement to their babies' needs offers parents the basic building blocks to raise a healthy, securely attached child. By understanding the role of secure attachment and affect regulation in development, parents of children age birth to 5 will learn how to create a secure environment so that their child can grow into their fullest potential.

Overcoming Traumatic Stress

Claudia Herbert
Authors:
Claudia Herbert

Terrible events are very hard to deal with. Those who go through a catastrophic life experience often feel permanently changed by the impact of what has happened. They become numb and shut off from those around them, or grief or guilt may constantly weigh them down. Memories of horrifying scenes may intrude unexpectedly during waking hours while sleep may be disturbed by vivid, unpleasant dreams. Traumatic stress responses, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder are psychological conditions that result from a person's coping mechanisms having been completely overwhelmed by a terrible experience. These 'flashbacks' may be so severe that sufferers may feel that they are losing their sanity and subsequently become ever more isolated in their distress. To overcome the effects of trauma it is necessary to change those reactions and begin to see events in a different light. This book demonstrates, with practical advice and tested exercises, how to find new, effective ways of coping with, and finally overcoming traumatic stress.
