Emotional Blackmail: When the People in Your Life Use Fear, Obligation, and Guilt to Manipulate You"If you really loved me. . ."

"After all I've done for you. . ."

"How can you be so selfish. . ."

Do any of the above sound familiar? They're all examples of emotional blackmail, a powerful form of manipulation in which people close to us threaten to punish us for not doing what they want. Emotional blackmailers know how much we value our relationships with them. They know our vulnerabilities and our deepest secrets. They are our mothers, our partners, our bosses and coworkers, our friends and our lovers. And no matter how much they care about us, they use this intimate knowledge to give themselves the payoff they want: our compliance.

Susan Forward knows what pushes our hot buttons. Just as John Gray illuminates the communications gap between the sexes in Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, and Harriet Lerner describes an intricate dynamic in The Dance of Anger, so Susan Forward presents the anatomy of a relationship damaged by manipulation, and gives readers an arsenal of tools to fight back. In her clear, no-nonsense style, Forward provides powerful, practical strategies for blackmail targets, including checklists, practice scenarios and concrete communications techniques that will strengthen relationships and break the blackmail cycle for good.

"Emotionally abusive parents are indeed toxic parents, and they cause significant damage to their children's self-esteem, self-image, and body image. In this remarkable book, Beverly Engel shares her powerful Mirror Therapy program for helping adult survivors to overcome their shame and self-criticism, become more compassionate and accepting of themselves, and create a more posititve self-image. I strongly recommend it for anyone who was abused or neglected as a child."
--Susan Forward, Ph.D., author of Toxic Parents

"In this book, Beverly Engel documents the wide range of psychological abuses that so many children experience in growing up. Her case examples and personal accounts are poignant and powerful reminders that as adults, many of us are still limited by the defenses we formed when trying to protect ourselves in the face of the painful circumstances we found ourselves in as children. Engle's insightful questionnaires and exercises provide concrete help in the healing process, and her writing style is lively and engaging. This book is destined to positively affect many lives."

Signs of Emotional Abuse: Know about the War for Power and Control in Relationships (Healing Emotional Abuse Book 1)For those of us who are not sure what emotional abuse is, don’t know the emotional abuse signs or are not sure how to do emotional abuse recovery, here is a clear description. In this book, readers are helped to understand the core notions of emotional abuse and emotionally abusive relationships.

It begins with definitions and explanations of why an emotionally abusive marriage happens, then works its way up to helping the reader analyze if she is in an abusive relationship. The book contains multiple small surveys and checklists to help her guide their own thoughts about her personal situation (or that of a friend), together with personal stories of women who have survived abuse.

You might think that emotional abuse is easy to spot or define. But the reason so many people suffer from an emotionally abusive marriage is that it is hard to tell what is abusive and what is not. You have to ask whether your partner is hindering your development as an adult by the use of excessive or inadequate control. You have to ask yourself whether or not the person you love is hurting you. A marriage has to be an equal relationship, but using control between partners destroys this balance and prevents their individual growth. Here there is useful information about ways to decide if what you are experiencing is care or abusive control.

By addressing the signs of spousal emotional abuse, Neil shines a light on this painful issue. For readers needing support in healing emotional abuse, the next book of this series: “Breaking Free from Emotional Abuse: How to Restore Your Joy by Healing Your Life,” will continue the support of the emotional abuse healing process.

Mobbing: Emotional Abuse in the American WorkplaceEveryday capable, hardworking, committed employees suffer emotional abuse at their workplace. Some flee from jobs they love, forced out by mean-spirited co-workers, subordinates or superiors -- often with the tacit approval of higher management.

The authors, Dr. Noa Davenport, Ruth Distler Schwartz, and Gail Pursell Elliott have written a book for every employee and manager in America. The book deals with what has become a household word in Europe: Mobbing.

Mobbing is a "ganging up" by several individuals, to force someone out of the workplace through rumor, innuendo, intimidation, discrediting, and particularly, humiliation. Mobbing is a serious form of nonsexual, nonracial harassment. It has been legally described as status-blind harassment.

Mobbing affects the mental and physical health of victims. It extracts staggering costs from victims, their families, and from organizations.

With this new book, Mobbing: Emotional Abuse in the American Workplace, there is a name for the problem and help for the victims. The book helps readers to understand what mobbing is, why it occurs, how it affects a victim and organizations, and what people can so. The authors have interviewed victims from across the U.S. and the book contains many quotes that poignantly illustrate the gravity of the mobbing experience. An overview of the literature and research is provided as well as many practical strategies to help the victims, managers, healthcare and legal professionals. Original drawings by Sabra Vidali express the depth of the experience and enhance the authors' work.

Severing the Connection: An Instruction Manual of Escaping Emotional AbuseThe author of this book is a survivor of emotional abuse. The techniques in the book may not be for everyone. It is the opinion of one person who has experienced verbal and psychological abuse first-hand, combined with portions of interviews with other victims of emotional abuse. You are encouraged to further educate yourself on emotional abuse and, if needed, seek counseling in order to deal with your abuse. You are also encouraged to use the margins and open areas of this manual to take notes concerning your personal situation.

Unlike its predecessor, the LETTERS edition (edition 2) of SEVERING THE CONNECTION: An Instruction Manual for Escaping Emotional Abuse focuses less on the reasons why abusers abuse, and more on the steps you need to take to leave that abuse behind. The new edition features letters which illustrate different aspects of emotional abuse, moments of realization, and steps taken to end it once and for all.

The Right Touch: A Read-Aloud Story to Help Prevent Child Sexual Abuse (Jody Bergsma Collection)The Right Touch reaches beyond the usual scope of a children's picture book. It is a parenting book that introduces a very difficult topic--the sexual abuse of young children. This gentle, thoughtful story can be read aloud to a child by any trusted caregiver.

In the story, young Jimmy's mom explains the difference between touches that are positive and touches that are secret, deceptive or forced. She tells him how to resist inappropriate touching, affirming that abuse is not the child s fault.

The introduction provides valuable information about sexual abuse and guidance on what to do if your child experiences an abusive situation. Jody Bergsma's gentle illustrations soften the impact of this story; yet this portrayal of a dangerous situation is very realistic. If your child is old enough to sit still and listen to a story, he or she is old enough for The Right Touch.

Used by parents and teachers nationwide to help children avoid sexual abuse, this book won the 1999 Benjamin Franklin Parenting Award. It was a finalist for the Small Press Award and was also "Selected as Outstanding" by the Parent Council, Ltd.

Why is he so mean to me?Are you, living in a relationship characterized by anxiety, fear and confusion?

Is your spouse unpredictable?

Does he seem to attract or create chaos?

Do you find yourself trying “extra hard” to earn his affection and approval?

If there are issues or problems, does he make it seem as though they are always your fault?

Do you have difficulty communicating or find yourself rehearsing what you want to say so that you are not misunderstood, and because you hope to avoid his anger?

You are not alone. It may be that you are living in an abusive relationship – and just because he’s not hitting you does not mean you are not being abused.

The abuse will not simply end. You have to be willing to take action to protect yourself and your family.

If it feels as though the world revolves around the abuser, one of the things you need to grasp is that, in his mind, it does.

Love should make you feel safe and cherished, not fearful and inadequate.

If you agree, perhaps it’s time you rediscovered your value and reclaimed your life.

Remember: An abuser will do anything to keep you, but nothing to take care of you.

Emotional Assault: Recognizing an Abusive Partner's Bag of TricksWhen most people think of abuse, images of domestic violence come to mind. However, emotional abuse is a form of indirect violence that also deserves recognition. It is difficult to overcome because it is often impossible to identify. While domestic abuse is tragic, it is impossible to ignore the evidence of it. The impact of emotional abuse, on the other hand, is often invisible. Since others don’t see any physical scars, they have no idea how much the victim is suffering. When the emotionally abused spouse speaks up, people are often dismissive of her pain. This leaves the victim in a constant state of confusion and self-blame. In this book, author Lisa Kroulik identifies eight common tactics that emotionally abusive people use to control their partners, such as giving the silent treatment or playing the victim. Lisa Kroulik uses examples from her relationship with her former husband to help readers name abusive tactics in their own relationships. As she states in the introduction to this book, knowledge is power. After identifying a trait of emotionally abusive partners, Lisa Kroulik goes on to offer suggestions on how to confront it. She makes it clear that confronting the behavior may not make it stop and that each woman needs to decide for herself if her relationship is worth saving. The second section of Emotional Assault helps the reader assess her current relationship and provides resources should she decide to end it. This book is hopeful and engaging while empowering emotionally abused women to change their lives.

Trauma and Recovery: The Aftermath of Violence--from Domestic Abuse to Political Terror
When Trauma and Recovery was first published in 1992, it was hailed as a groundbreaking work. In the intervening years, Herman’s volume has changed the way we think about and treat traumatic events and trauma victims. In a new afterword, Herman chronicles the incredible response the book has elicited and explains how the issues surrounding the topic have shifted within the clinical community and the culture at large.Trauma and Recovery brings a new level of understanding to a set of problems usually considered individually. Herman draws on her own cutting-edge research in domestic violence as well as on the vast literature of combat veterans and victims of political terror, to show the parallels between private terrors such as rape and public traumas such as terrorism. The book puts individual experience in a broader political frame, arguing that psychological trauma can be understood only in a social context. Meticulously documented and frequently using the victims’ own words as well as those from classic literary works and prison diaries, Trauma and Recovery is a powerful work that will continue to profoundly impact our thinking.

Mobbing: Emotional Abuse in the American WorkplaceEveryday capable, hardworking, committed employees suffer emotional abuse at their workplace. Some flee from jobs they love, forced out by mean-spirited co-workers, subordinates or superiors -- often with the tacit approval of higher management.

The authors, Dr. Noa Davenport, Ruth Distler Schwartz, and Gail Pursell Elliott have written a book for every employee and manager in America. The book deals with what has become a household word in Europe: Mobbing.

Mobbing is a "ganging up" by several individuals, to force someone out of the workplace through rumor, innuendo, intimidation, discrediting, and particularly, humiliation. Mobbing is a serious form of nonsexual, nonracial harassment. It has been legally described as status-blind harassment.

Mobbing affects the mental and physical health of victims. It extracts staggering costs from victims, their families, and from organizations.

With this new book, Mobbing: Emotional Abuse in the American Workplace, there is a name for the problem and help for the victims. The book helps readers to understand what mobbing is, why it occurs, how it affects a victim and organizations, and what people can so. The authors have interviewed victims from across the U.S. and the book contains many quotes that poignantly illustrate the gravity of the mobbing experience. An overview of the literature and research is provided as well as many practical strategies to help the victims, managers, healthcare and legal professionals. Original drawings by Sabra Vidali express the depth of the experience and enhance the authors' work.

House Rules: A NovelThe astonishing new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult about a family torn apart by an accusation of murder.

They tell me I'm lucky to have a son who's so verbal, who is blisteringly intelligent, who can take apart the broken microwave and have it working again an hour later. They think there is no greater hell than having a son who is locked in his own world, unaware that there's a wider one to explore. But try having a son who is locked in his own world, and still wants to make a connection. A son who tries to be like everyone else, but truly doesn't know how.

Jacob Hunt is a teenage boy with Asperger's syndrome. He's hopeless at reading social cues or expressing himself well to others, and like many kids with AS, Jacob has a special focus on one subject--in his case, forensic analysis. He's always showing up at crime scenes, thanks to the police scanner he keeps in his room, and telling the cops what they need to do...and he's usually right. But then his town is rocked by a terrible murder and, for a change, the police come to Jacob with questions. All of the hallmark behaviors of Asperger's--not looking someone in the eye, stimulatory tics and twitches, flat affect--can look a lot like guilt to law enforcement personnel. Suddenly, Jacob and his family, who only want to fit in, feel the spotlight shining directly on them. For his mother, Emma, it's a brutal reminder of the intolerance and misunderstanding that always threaten her family. For his brother, Theo, it's another indication of why nothing is normal because of Jacob. And over this small family the soul-searing question looms: Did Jacob commit murder?

Emotionally powerful from beginning to end, House Rules looks at what it means to be different in our society, how autism affects a family, and how our legal system works well for people who communicate a certain way--and fails those who don't.

Explore the reading group guide for House Rules.

A Conversation with Author Jodi Picoult

Q: How did you first decide upon Asperger's Syndrome as the focus for this novel?

A: I have a cousin who's autistic. Several times, my aunt found herself in a public place trying to control one of his meltdowns--and people who didn't understand why she was restraining him contacted authorities and made allegations of abuse. As he got older, and moved into a group home, his frustrations became more intense because of his size--he'd break in windows with his fist, for example--and several times the police were called. It got me thinking that the legal system works really well, if you communicate a certain way. But if you don't, it all goes to Hell in a handbasket really quickly. A lot of the hallmark behaviors of autism--flat affect, stimming, not looking someone in the eye--could very easily be misinterpreted as signs of guilt.

Q: You have been known to do extensive research about the topics in your books. What was the research process like for this novel?

A: In addition to meeting with attorneys to get the legal information accurate, I met with six teens with Asperger's, and their parents--face to face. Even though some of the kids were very awkward in a direct setting, I needed to experience that to understand how the rest of the world would feel coming in contact with Jacob. But kids with Asperger's, who are so smart, shine when you let them answer questions on paper. So another 35 teens and their parents answered lengthy questionnaires for me about themselves, their reactions to situations, their lives, their hopes, their frustrations. It made for some incredible reading, and many of their direct experiences wound up in Jacob's life. One of these young women with Asperger's Syndrome was so detailed in her writing and so open about her experiences that she volunteered to help me further. She read the manuscript for accuracy and told me, based on Jacob's voice, what seemed consistent and what, in her opinion, Jacob would never say or do. The last bit of research I did was incredibly fun--I shadowed a CSI for a week. I got to learn blood spatter analysis, to do presumptive semen tests, to check out crime scenes, and to observe an autopsy. It was fascinating!

Q: When your central characters are in a real-life situation that affects so many people around the world--in this case, dealing with the effects of Asperger's Syndrome and autism on a family--is there more pressure on you as the author to "get it right"?

A: It doesn't really matter whether it's Asperger's or a rape victim or a cancer patient--when research subjects open up to me with such honesty I ALWAYS feel a responsibility to "get it right."

Q: If you could say one thing to the families who are dealing with the effects of having an autistic child, what would it be?

A: That you're not alone--and that, hopefully, more and more people will come to understand that a child who's "different from" is not one who is "lesser than."

Q: In a previous interview, you referred to your novels taking part in a long line of "moral and ethical fiction." When you first began writing, did you have the intention of using your work as a springboard for conversation about moral and ethical issues? Or did that come later on?

A: I think I started gravitating toward that sort of niche as I kept writing. I have always written about subjects that engage me--questions I can't answer myself. They apparently tend to be big moral and ethical issues! But I never lose sight of the fact that before I was a writer, I was a teacher. I still am. My classroom's just gotten a little bigger.

Q: House Rules is your seventeenth novel. Do you feel your writing has changed since your first novel? If so, was it an intentional change, or is it something you've noticed over time?

A: I think my writing has become "cleaner." By that I mean that technically I've improved--I might turn a metaphor in five words now, where years ago, it would have taken me a paragraph. I can't say it was intentional--but you know what they say about practice making perfect…!

Q: Why did you choose to end the book when you did, rather than going into what happens to the characters in the aftermath of the trial?

A: Because at heart, this is Jacob's book. And remember, to Jacob, there was never any real mystery here, was there?

Q: Could you talk for a moment about Emma's character and her struggles throughout the book? You've said that your characters' voices come to you, that they take on a life of their own. Did you find yourself agreeing with Emma's choices as the novel progressed?

A: I think Emma is a very typical, very overwhelmed mom. A lot of the moms of autistic kids I met are so consumed with being their child's advocate that there's no room for anything else--least of all themselves. It's why so many marriages end in divorce, when a child is diagnosed on the spectrum. Emma's journey in this book is one of unwinding--allowing herself to define herself as more than just Jacob's mother, because that's been completely eroded by his autism.

Q: If the main characters in this novel had favorite books, what do you think they would be?

A: What a great question! I think Jacob's would be, clearly, anything written by Dr. Henry Lee. Oliver would love Presumed Innocent by Turow--it's probably why he decided to go to law school. Theo would read Vonnegut. He wouldn't understand Vonnegut, but he'd think it's the kind of thing a rebel would read. Rich--I think he's a closet softy, the kind of guy who's got a dog-eared copy of The Sun Also Rises in his nightstand. And dare I hope that Emma reads Jodi Picoult novels?

Q: Could you give us a glimpse into your next project?

A: Sing You Home, the 2011 book, is the story of Zoe Baxter, who has spent ten years trying to get pregnant. After multiple miscarriages and infertility issues, it looks like her dream is about to come true--she is seven months pregnant. But a terrible turn of events takes away the baby she has already fallen for; and breaks apart her marriage to Max. In the aftermath, she throws herself into her career as a music therapist--using music clinically to soothe burn victims in a hospital; to help Alzheimer's patients connect with the present; to provide solace for hospice patients. When Vanessa--a guidance counselor--asks her to work with a suicidal teen, their relationship moves from business to friendship and then, to Zoe's surprise, blossoms into love. When Zoe allows herself to start thinking of having a family, again, she remembers that there are still frozen embryos that were never used by herself and Max.

Meanwhile, Max has found peace at the bottom of a bottle--until he is redeemed by an evangelical church, whose charismatic pastor--Clive Lincoln--has vowed to fight the "homosexual agenda" that has threatened traditional family values in America. But this mission becomes personal for Max, when Zoe and her same-sex partner say they want permission to raise his unborn child.

Sing You Home explores what it means to be gay in today's world, and how reproductive science has outstripped the legal system. Are embryos people or property? What challenges do same-sex couples face when it comes to marriage and adoption? What happens when religion and sexual orientation--two issues that are supposed to be justice-blind--enter the courtroom? And most importantly, what constitutes a "traditional family" in today's day and age?

Also--in a very unique move--readers will get to literally hear Zoe Baxter's voice. I am collaborating with Ellen Wilber, a dear friend who is also a very talented musician, to create a CD of original songs, which will correspond to each of the chapters. This CD will be packaged with each hardcover book. So--literally--stay tuned!

STEALING POWER is easy, restoring it is hard.

Detective Chief Inspector AJ Colt has lived his life in the limelight. The charismatic star of New Scotland Yard is public relations gold. Everyone loves him. Well, almost everyone. For three years, a serial rapist has been taunting and tormenting him, sending him DVD copies of every drug facilitated rape he commits. It's been one year since he received the last DVD and the trail is stone cold dead. When a new DVD arrives out of the blue, a familiar landmark takes him away from the job and life he loves and back to his home town of Winchester. The last place on earth he wants to be.

Winchester Detective India Kane does not suffer fools gladly, and she's surrounded by them. Obsessively private, she keeps her head down, gets on with her job, and doesn't bother anybody. She likes life that way. When people bother her, things have a tendency to get messy. She's just landed her first lead case - a drug facilitated rape investigation - and doesn't take kindly to the arrogant newcomer parachuted in to snatch it from her.

The hunt is on.

But the serial rapist is just warming up. As he escalates, so does his power. And he won't stop until he's stolen it all...... even if it means bringing his own brand of terror directly to those who hunt him.

As they close in on their suspect, Colt and Kane find themselves on a direct collision course with the darkest depths of the human psyche, their own demons, and a web of secrets, lies, and deceit; spun by those they trust the most.

When their lives collide - it won't just be the victims' worlds that are torn apart.

Boy KarmaA gripping coming-of-age story, Boy Karma is a no-holds-barred thriller, a realistic tale of abuse, courage and survival…and a tender romance between two teenagers, which, by the end of Chapter One, will leave you with a gut-wrenching question:
What would you do if you were 14 year-old Ash?
He’s a bright kid growing up in crime-ridden East London. His family survives on welfare benefits. His old man is a boozer and a cruel, perverted bastard. His mum? She puts up with it, barely keeping things together. His little sister, Nisha? Weird…though when Ash sees blood on her dress and hears her recite the sickest poem he has ever heard, he knows exactly why.
And then he needs to grow up faster than the speed of light.
At first glance, the solution is easy. Tell someone. Talk. Share the problem. Every time he tries, however, or even thinks about it, the words won’t come out, not even with his girlfriend, Cherri. He’s trapped in a web of guilt, fear, shame…and death threats, all made worse by his mother’s answer for everything: “It’s our karma.”
But Ash is a determined kid and he goes it alone, taking risks, trying everything he can to get his father out of their lives. The consequences are brutal. But he won’t give up. Then events escalate and he is left with only one option…

NOTE (From The Author To Readers and Parents).

BOY KARMA is the Young Adult version of The Kiss of Karma. It tells the story purely from the main character’s perspective - fourteen-year-old Ash. The original novel contains the viewpoints of other characters, including the adults in the story. All of these have been omitted from Boy Karma to make it accessible to younger readers. The result is a more intimate read, based solely on what young Ash sees, does and feels, and his innermost thoughts.

However, Ash is a kid growing up in extreme circumstances and what his sister and he have to deal with at home is appalling. This means the situations and the kind of language occurring in the book may be offensive and uncomfortable for some readers, but it is a reflection of the physical and emotional reality of what children in such situations have to face...so I have not watered any of these aspects down.

The sad truth is there are children like Ash and his sister the world over who are silently suffering abuse. It is my wish this story will reach out, give them hope and let them know they do not have to face their pain alone.

A Journey through Emotional Abuse: From Bondage to FreedomOne in four women will experience domestic abuse in her lifetime. Many Christians believe domestic abuse doesn’t occur in Christian homes. Sadly, “religion is not a deterrent. There is just as much abuse in Christian homes as in non-Christian homes,” according to the Christian Coalition against Domestic Abuse. A Journey through Emotional Abuse answers the difficult question: “Am I being abused?” along with many theological questions such as, “Do I have to submit to this?” “Does God care about me?” and “Does the Bible say I can leave him?” Providing abused women with important information, in bite-size pieces, along with emotional support, the book walks readers through the Matthew 18 process of reconciling with a brother, allowing the church to intervene. Readers are given assistance with discerning whether their husband has made necessary changes or whether, for their own safety, they should leave him. For those who decide they must leave, A Journey through Emotional Abuse offers a plan for leaving safely and tips on how to prepare for consequences of their choice: police, social services, and court intervention. Readers will move from feeling confused, frightened, and alone to feeling informed and peaceful. Equipped with the knowledge of where to find help, coupled with the fact that she is the daughter of the King of the Universe, His special treasure, readers will find hope.

When Love Is a Lie: Narcissistic Partners & the Pathological Relationship Agenda[Now includes a 14-page excerpt from Zari Ballard's new book Stop Spinning, Start Breathing]

When our committed relationship involves a narcissistic partner or someone with a narcissistic personality disorder, it is inevitable that the experience, at some point, will take a very dark turn. Pathological liars, chronic cheaters, and masters at passive-aggressive punishments (i.e. the silent treatment), narcissists follow a specific relationship agenda where every deceptive move is deliberately calculated to confuse and abuse the people who love them. And, as crazy as it appears, those who love the narcissist will stick it out, thinking they can fix this person or love them out of their bad behavior. We imagine the narcissist as mentally ill and, therefore, repairable. We bargain with logic, ignore our intuition, and become master truth spinners. And the truth, of course, is that narcissists, psychopaths, and sociopaths can never be fixed - not with love, therapy, and not with any magic pill. I know and understand...because I stumbled down this very path for twelve long years.

Do the behaviors of your partner continually cause you to feel suspicious? Are you subjected to silent treatments and other forms of controlling punishments? Do you find yourself choosing to overlook these behaviors rather than face a confrontation? Does your partner appear to create chaos just to keep you feeling anxious and insecure? Are you obsessed with trying to figure it all out? Answering "yes" to any of the above indicates that you may be involved with a narcissistic partner...a person without a conscience...a pretender...someone who is manipulating your life to suit his own purpose. You may even feel an agonizing codependency - not only to the narcissist but to the drama itself - and this, too, is an intention of the narcissist's pathological relationship agenda.

When Love Is a Lie is a personal, non-clinical narrative that exposes the typical manipulative behavioral patterns of narcissistic partners. Based on my own 12-year experience, this book deliberately offers no excuses for narcissism (medical or otherwise) nor does it encourage readers to cut a narcissistic partner any slack whatsoever. This book is about the reality of the situation, about why we become codependent to the drama, and, most importantly, what we can do about all of it to save our own lives.

Learn how/why a lover or partner with a narcissistic personality...
can never have - or even pretend to have - the love-worthy human qualities (the undeniable truths!) that make up the beauty of life.can - and probably has - deliberately and methodically managed down your relationship expectations so that you expect less and he gets away with morewill use the Silent Treatment and similar demoralizing methods of control to punish those who dare to call him out on questionable behaviorswill create chaos even during "good" times as a tactic for keeping you in a constant state of codependent anxietywill juggle many relationships at once and often for years with no one being the wiser...not even youlies even when the truth is a better storyRealizing the truth about your narcissistic partner is never easy but it's not the end of the world. Use this book to separate yourself from the narcissistic drama once and for all.

Revolutionary Trauma Therapy That Works Wonders.

A LIFESAVER
- "Being raised in a "family" with a great deal of neglect, physical and emotional abuse and then being diagnosed by the VA with PTSD, I learned from a very early to stuff and repress my emotions. As we all know the personal repercussions from this are many and varied. I tried both AA and NA, finding both sadly lacking after 30 years of getting nowhere with either fellowship. For a very few it works, for most of the rest of us it does not. I have only had this book for a few days, and yet I am already feeling a positive difference through the study and practice of the principles contained within it. If you have had really bad things happen to you, do yourself a favor and get this book. The language is simple and easy to understand without a lot of metaphysical BS. I cannot praise the author highly enough."

Running on Empty: Overcome Your Childhood Emotional Neglect
Running on Empty is the first self-help book about Emotional Neglect: an invisible force from your childhood which you can't see, but may be affecting you profoundly to this day. It is about what didn't happen in your childhood, what wasn't said, and what cannot be remembered.

Do you sometimes feel as if you're just going through the motions in life? Are you good at looking and acting as if you're fine, but secretly feel lonely and disconnected? Perhaps you have a fine life and are good at your work, but somehow it's just not enough to make you happy.

If so, you are not alone. The world is full of people who have an innate sense that something is wrong with them. Who feel they live on the outside looking in, but have no explanation for their feeling and no way to put it into words. Who blame themselves for not being happier.

If you are one of these people, you may fear that you are not connected enough to your spouse, or that you don't feel pleasure or love as profoundly as others do. Perhaps when you do experience strong emotions, you have difficulty understanding or tolerating them. You may drink too much, or eat too much, or risk too much, in an attempt to feel something good.

In over twenty years of practicing psychology, many people have arrived in Jonice Webb's office, driven by the threat of divorce or the onset of depression, or by loneliness, and said, ""Something is missing in me.""

Running on Empty will give you clear strategies for how to heal, and offers a special chapter for mental health professionals. In the world of human suffering, this book is an Emotional Smart Bomb meant to eradicate the effects of an invisible enemy.

There are different coping techniques and strategies that help people deal with the pain of abuse and find ways to move on to a healthier and more fruitful life. If you are a victim of abuse or know a person that is, we hope that this book will help you find ways to heal from the pain of your past and help others to do the same.

When You Are Finished With This Kindle Book About Emotional Abuse You Will Understand:
Exactly what emotional abuse isThe effects of being emotionally abusedThe signs or red flags of an emotionally abusive personalityHow to heal from being emotionally abused and much, much more...

Some Tips From This Book on Emotional Abuse:
- Abusers often attempt to manipulate their partner into becoming completely dependent on them. They then use their ability to provide for their partner as a threat, and will often emphasize that their partner won’t be able to find a better companion should they decide to leave. This is particularly problematic in abusive marriages.

- Abusers often attempt to control every aspect of their partner’s life, including material wealth, finances, and the like. They often tend to monitor their partner’s comings and goings, and give their partner very little opportunity to do things on their own.

- Abusers often change their partner’s appearance, preferring clothes and looks that appeal only to them. Abuse is a game of control and abusers often feel the need to control most aspects of their partner’s life.

As you can see, the author, Pamela Help writes in a straightforward manor. While reading this book you won't be sifting through a bunch of useless content. NO! You are going to be learning about emotional abuse through reading condensed content that is filled with wisdom.

More Helpful Ideas From This Kindle Book About Abuse
- Abusers also may be very rigid and may become uncomfortable when their partner refuses to do things that don’t fall in line with their own interests. They may react angrily and may force their partner to do what they want by using threats and manipulation.

- Abusers often exhibit aggression such as verbal aggression, insults, shaming, threatening and even physical abuse. They also use threats to manipulate their partner into doing what they want and giving them what they need, physically or psychologically.

- Abusers often minimize the emotions and feelings of their partner. Their partner eventually feels worthless. This leads to the abused person defining themselves by how their abuser sees them. They learn to become completely dependent and their abuser gains complete control in the relationship.

Parental Emotional Abuse: Its Impact on AdulthoodParental Emotional Abuse: Its Impact on Adulthood
This book represents years of professional work with counselees from across cultures, economic, social, and spiritual backgrounds. The vignettes and events are based on actual situations which the counselor experienced in her work. Most of the data comes from direct sessions of personal, first-hand encounter from a combination of divorcees, singles, mothers, and people who have had multiple romantically failed relationships. Those relationships brought them pain, anguish, anger, and disappointments.
There are successful adult professionals who are living in emotional pain as a result of parental emotional abuses. Many will not admit to the distress but their actions, attitudes and behaviours communicate that something is missing.
Emotional hurts begin in childhood, the time when the child is impressive and most vulnerable. It is during this period he or she is making sense of the world, love, relationship with parents and siblings, and understanding the complexities and involvement of socialization. This is the stage when trust and personality begin to emerge in order to interact and relate to others.
If the child receives mixed messages from parents in terms of the way they respond to other siblings with care and respect, but he or she is severely punished for violations, these are the events which will remain in the psyche and will most certainly affect the emotions. Unless something happens to change attitudes and understanding of socialization concerning parental responses, any negative belief will become fixated and continue towards adulthood. One of the main fixations is emotional paralysis after a very painful event which was not resolved.
Childhood is the time when children are supposed to be carefree, happy, impressionable and trusting; they absorb love as the trees absorb carbon dioxide. They love the charms and mystic moments which seem so magical and delightful. They are captivated by the wonders of life and its enigma which make them inquisitive leaving them fearless; and for some, invincible as they take risks without thought for consequences.
Parental Emotional Abuse: Its Impact on Adulthood is timely for two reasons: to help those persons who have been hiding behind those hurts while hurting others; and to let the emotionally damaged know that the neglect of their parents does not mean that everyone will be as unkind. Nevertheless, there are adults trapped in that emotional tunnel who generalize by introducing similar behaviours to their own children, or as professionals hurt their subordinates with offensive hostilities and antagonisms.
The emotionally aggrieved individual was maltreated, wronged, injured and victimized by a parent, but that he or she does not have to remain confined to a life of despair. There is hope and it begins with taking charge.
This book is ideal for Parents, Social Workers and those who work with children.

Living and Loving after Betrayal: How to Heal from Emotional Abuse, Deceit, Infidelity, and Chronic Resentment
Betrayal has many faces, including anger, abuse, deceit, and infidelity. These feel like betrayal because they violate the implicit promise of emotional bonds, that your loved one will care about your wellbeing and never intentionally hurt you. If you've recently left a relationship where you felt betrayed by your partner—or if you want to repair one—it can seem impossible to view the world without the shadow of past betrayal hovering over you. As a result, you may struggle to create meaning in your life, find the strength to forgive, or build new, loving relationships.

In Living and Loving after Betrayal, therapist and relationship expert Steven Stosny offers effective tools for healing, based on his highly successful CompassionPower program. He founded the CompassionPower agency on the belief that we are more powerful when compassionate than when angry or aggressive, and that true strength comes from relating compassionately to others and remaining true to your deeper values. In this book, you’ll learn practical strategies for overcoming betrayal-induced trauma and the chronic resentment and depression that result, using this innovative compassion-empowerment approach.

Most books on betrayal only focus on the obvious issues, such as infidelity, abuse, or sex addiction. This book explores the effects of those kinds of betrayal, as well as less-talked-about types, such as emotional manipulation, dishonesty, deceit, and financial cheating. In addition, the book helps you regain a sense of trust in others so that you can eventually find another compassionate person to share your life with or, if you choose, to rebuild a relationship with your reformed betrayer.

Recovering from the betrayal of partner isn’t easy, but Living and Loving after Betrayal offers potent ways to heal, grow, and love again.

Twisted (The Tangled Series)When spontaneous and carefree meets cautious and responsible, falling in love can get just a little Twisted

There are two kinds of people in this world: the ones who look first, and the ones who leap. I’ve always been more of a looker. A planner. Cautious. Then I met Drew Evans. He was so persistent. So sure of himself. He made it easy to leap with him.

Did you think Drew and I were going to ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after? So did I. But life is about choices, and Drew already made his. In fact, he tried to decide for the both of us—but you know that’s not my style. So I came back to Greenville, to spend some time alone . . . sort of.

Because old habits die hard, and sometimes you have to go back to where you began before you can move ahead again.

Somewhere to Hide (The Estate Book 1)**Reduced for a limited period**

'Sherratt is a unique voice in detective fiction, capturing the terror of abused women far better than any male writer.' Mail on Sunday.

From the author of No.1 bestseller Taunting the Dead comes a new series, The Estate - where drama meets crime.

Cath Mason has learned to be tough. The things she’s seen growing up on the Mitchell Estate, she’s had to be. Yet, even broken and beaten by life at times, she’s still the first person a woman in need of help seeks out.

At Cath’s house, there is safety in numbers as well as a place to hide. No matter what trouble comes to her door, she won’t turn anyone away – because she knows what it’s like to live with secrets.

But now a problem from her past has come back to haunt her, and she’s the one faced with a dilemma. What should she do first – help or be helped – despite being unsure she’ll ever be ready to confront her own demons?

With danger around every corner, can Cath protect herself as well as the women whose safety is her paramount concern? Or has the potential for revenge already gone a step too far?

SOMEWHERE TO HIDE is emotional and brutal, gripping and terrifying, psychological suspense. It is the first book in The Estate series.

Praise for Mel Sherratt
‘There's a lot of young crime writers that I've just met for the first time. There's one called Mel Sherratt; she's very interesting.’ Ian Rankin.

'A writer to watch out for.' Mandasue Heller.

‘Uncompromising, powerful and very real – an important new voice.’ David Mark.

‘The worst terrors are always those that hide closest to home.’ Elizabeth Haynes.

What the readers say:

‘I couldn't put this book down. It kept me awake at night. There's everything you need in a good story. Crime, romance, the strength of faith in others, despair, and overcoming everything. It's my first book I've read by this author and it won't be the last!’

‘This book had me gripped from the beginning through to the very end, which doesn't often happen. If you like books by Mandasue Heller, Martina Cole, Roberta Kray, then I recommend adding Mel Sherratt to your list.’

‘I loved this book. The author makes me feel as though I am living with the characters she writes about.’

Trauma and Substance AbuseOver the past decade, research on the epidemiology, nature, and meaning of the comorbidity between trauma, PTSD, and substance abuse has burgeoned. Changes in the political and social climate of the United States during this time have brought with them new challenges. Changes in the definitions of both posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and substance abuse have been proposed by those involved with diagnosing and treating people with these issues; some of these changes are expected to be reflected in future diagnostic systems.


Trauma and Substance Abuse offers a broad overview of current trends in the field of co-occurring substance abuse and PTSD from both clinical and research perspectives. The goal of this volume, newly revised to include special settings, such as court systems and disasters, and special populations, such as veterans, is to clarify issues specific to trauma, PTSD, and substance abuse and to translate both quantitative and qualitative data into specific recommendations for clinicians, researchers, and administrators.

Tamed (The Tangled Series)In the third unforgettable book by New York Times bestselling author Emma Chase, Matthew Fisher—the best friend of Drew Evans from Tangled and Twisted—wants to settle down, but he’ll have to overcome the mistrust of the vividly unique Dee Dee Warren. Includes a bonus short story, Holy Frigging Matrimony!


Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: girl meets player, they fall in love, player changes his ways.

It’s a good story. But it’s not our story. Ours is a lot more colorful.

When I met Dee, I knew right away that she was special. When she met me, she thought I was anything but special—I was exactly like every other guy who’d screwed her over and let her down. It took some time to convince her otherwise, but it turns out I can make a convincing argument when sex is at stake.

You might know where this story’s headed. But the best part isn't where we ended up.

It’s how we got there.

He wants nothing more than a 'normal' happy family life - will being with Katie ever give him that? Katie does not know how to love him or anyone but she knows she could not be without him.

What had happened in those two years when she had been missing that could cause this pain and anguish and if they found out would they feel the same about her? Katie didn't think so, she had to protect them against the truth and she had to face her past - but at what cost?

Disconnected is an intense, emotional journey that will have you smiling one minute and then feeling hurt and pain the next. You want it to work out, you want the happy ending - but then life is never that straightforward, this book will leave you with a void, this book will leave you disconnected!

* have sudden outbursts of anger or rage?
* become jealous without reason?
* prevent you from seeing friends and family?
* deny you access to family assets such as bank accounts, credit cards, or the car?
* control all finances and force you to account for what you spend?
* insult you or call you derogatory names?
* humiliate you in front of your children?
* turn minor incidents into major arguments?
If you or someone you know can answer "yes" to the questions above, chances are you are suffering from nonphysical battering--controlling, tyrannical behavior that is just as damaging to a woman's self-esteem as a broken bone or a black eye. An experienced counselor who works with abused women, Mary Susan Miller breaks the silence that surrounds this devastating form of domestic violence. She identifies the many types of nonphysical abuse verbal, emotional, psychological, social, and economic--and explores why this outrageous treatment of women continues unabated in our society.
Dr. Miller also shares the stories of many survivors who have escaped their abusive relationships. Their experiences--with law enforcement, the legal system, and the community itself--can help prepare any woman for the decision of whether to stay or leave the relationship. And if she decides to go, Dr. Miller offers sound guidelines on how to protect herself and her children, since a woman's decision to leave is usually the time she is in the most danger from her abuser.
Finally, Dr. Miller inspires hope: You can break free of the nightmare of nonphysical battering and heal, once again engaging in a life of integrity, dignity, and peace.

Another Man's TreasureIlia Porter is Chechen mob boss Mikhail Kadyrov’s greatest treasure. After leaving home at eighteen to escape his verbally abusive father, beautiful, selfish Ilia has lived with Mikhail, proud of his ability to bring such a powerful man to his knees to worship. But when Ilia’s father, a police captain, kills Mikhail in a raid, Ilia’s world falls apart.

Entering to pick up the pieces is Mikhail’s younger brother, Nick—impulsive, power-hungry, and dangerous. When Nick tells Ilia he’s taking everything that belonged to Mikhail—including Ilia—Ilia is too lost in grief to fight. Nick holds Ilia prisoner in the apartment Ilia once shared with Mikhail and grooms him for a very important mission: to kill Ilia’s father and avenge Mikhail’s death.

Ilia wants no part in the plot, but being Nick’s ally is preferable to being Nick’s victim, so he begins to warp himself into the monster Nick wants him to be. Hope arrives when Nick takes another captive: Patrick, a shy massage therapist who’s stronger than he seems. Patrick and Ilia must join forces to escape Nick—and to keep each other whole as Nick does everything in his power to break them.

Lone CypressWhat does it mean to be possessed? By a person, by a dream, and by your demons? Shana knows. Shana was a ballerina. At least that was what her mother told her when she moved them to New York so she could pursue the dream. But after Shana was kicked out of school for experimenting with new dance forms and escaped her stage mom only to fall into a dangerous marriage, all she has left is a list of things she thought she was. The only thing still alive in her spirit is the ballet she wanted to choreograph, and suddenly it has taken on a life of its own. Shana runs, from her husband, from her life, and from the terrifying dreams that insist she make a change–until she runs out of time and must face not only her husband’s hired gun but the monster in her mind.

Magical realism, supernatural, psychological, spiritual contemporary fantasy romance. Lone Cypress is all of these things, at once a love story and a story of emotional healing, though it won’t ever let you rest on one conclusion for too long. Just how literal are the events of this story–possession, mental illness, symbolic nightmares, visions, mystical voices and magical objects that guide a young woman to a new love and community–and what is their source? Lone Cypress invites the reader to decide for him or herself how deep the rabbit hole goes, because all events point in the same direction, but just how far you suspend your disbelief will determine where the story ends for you.

Invisible Scars: How to Stop, Change or End Psychological Abuse

Direct and reader-friendly, the book offers insights and suggestions to both victim and abuser to bring about positive change. Poignant case studies and first-person accounts from both victims and abusers provide thought-provoking questions for the reader to consider and act upon, making this guide a valuable resource for those in psychologically abusive relationships and their loved ones, as well as for psychological professionals.

Plain TruthFrom the bestselling author of My Sister's Keeper comes the riveting story of a murder that shatters the picturesque calm of Amish country -- and tests the heart and soul of the lawyer defending the woman at the center of the storm.

The discovery of a dead infant in an Amish barn shakes Lancaster County to its core. But the police investigation leads to a more shocking disclosure: circumstantial evidence suggests that eighteen-year-old Katie Fisher, an unmarried Amish woman believed to be the newborn's mother, took the child's life. When Ellie Hathaway, a disillusioned big-city attorney, comes to Paradise, Pennsylvania, to defend Katie, two cultures collide -- and for the first time in her high-profile career, Ellie faces a system of justice very different from her own. Delving deep inside the world of those who live "plain," Ellie must find a way to reach Katie on her terms. And as she unravels a tangled murder case, Ellie also looks deep within -- to confront her own fears and desires when a man from her past reenters her life.

Healing Spiritual Abuse: How to Break Free from Bad Church ExperienceAre you a victim of Spiritual Abuse? Are you discouraged from questioning the decisions or teachings church leaders make?If you do little or no volunteer work for the church, do you feel like a second-class Christian?Does your pastor insist on being addressed by a title such as "Dr." or "Pastor"?Do you hear many broad, vague appeals to "surrender fully," "yield completely" or "lay it all on the altar"?Are public reports about various ministry activities sometimes exaggerated?Do church members feel safe talking only about past victories, not present struggles? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be a victim of spiritual abuse. Many of us have gone through bad church experiences that have left us feeling like failures. Blaming ourselves, we asked for God's forgiveness, but felt distant from the church and sometimes from God too. Often, however, the fault is not ours but that of Christian leaders who abuse spiritually. How can we recognize the signs of spiritual abuse? What can we do to gain healing from the wounds we have experienced? With clarity and refreshing honesty, Ken Blue answers these questions and offers hope and healing to the victims of spiritual abuse. In addition he shows Christian leaders how to avoid abusive patterns and instead offer Christ's gospel of grace to every casualty of bad church experiences.

Silent BirdArtist and New Yorker Pilar Russell has always been a sexual
woman—as long as the commitment is light, the feelings aren’t
overwhelming and certain memories are kept at bay. When that
stops being possible, she runs away from everything she’s ever
known— friends, family and past—to reinvent herself in a place
she’s never been before.

In the south of France she knows no one and nothing. She
doesn’t even speak the language. She can start all over.

But the past is not so easily left behind, and feelings cannot be
ignored forever.

And love, in any language, will not be denied.

However, as forensic mental health counselors, it is important to remember to see clients as human beings, understand how their environment influences their development, and empower them to reach their full potential. Dr. Kevin Nadal conducts a counseling session with Rich, a sexual offender just released from jail and mandated to counseling. Dr. Nadal employs humanistic theory, focusing on developing rapport, showing empathy and unconditional positive regard, and empowering Rich by using strength-based techniques. In the second scenario, Dr. Nadal counsels Cammie, a survivor of rape, who is in her first session with Dr. Nadal. Dr. Nadal employs humanistic client centered techniques. He is aware of the legal issues Cammie may face and while he can't provide any legal advice, he offers a safe space for Cammie to discuss her feelings and help make optimal decisions.

Dirty HabitA crack-addicted prostitute and a nun get stuck on an elevator. One is going to, one is coming from, a meeting with a killer.



In a seedy hotel, battered prostitute Leslie (Kirsty Hinchcliffe) flees the scene of a crime only to get trapped on the elevator with young Sister Amelia (Reagan Dale Neis). When no one responds to their cries for help, they reluctantly turn to each other. Leslie starts smoking crack and goes from standoffish, to giddy, to ferociously hostile at the drop of a hat. The unlucky sister learns more than she wants about the violent crime Leslie has just perpetrated. Tensions mount as Leslie pries into Sister Amelia's private affairs and they discover a shared secret that binds them together in a macabre and surreal plot involving a talking handbag and a Catholic bishop (Sam Anderson).


It's a dark, hallucinatory ride with powerful performances and supernatural thrills that goes straight to the heart of a girl on her way to Hell.

Abuse:  Pursuing Wholeness-Individual Use DVD Copy*Dr. Coyle perceives sexual/ physical/emotional abuse to be the most extreme of all human violence and suffering. This comprehensive, yet highly compacted bio-psycho-social approach to the resolution of abuse issues combines the building or rebuilding of the self (through coordination with the Self-esteem and Goal-Setting Track) with a variety of coping resources needed for dealing with multiple traumas and betrayals. He specifically and directly addresses the losses, anger, trauma, assertiveness/boundary difficulties, and other challenges resulting from abuse.

Abuse affects fundamental developmental issues in contrast to trauma, which often more simply occurs following stable and expected development. Abuse destabilizes and threatens the foundations of personal development as well as inflicting trauma, making the educational approach to abuse a delicate and involved topic. Its complexity and the power of this track clearly require consultation with a therapist in collaboration with this programmed approach. The Self-Esteem and Goal Setting Track is highly recommended prior to this track. Additionally, because addictions are common among individuals who have been previously abused, attention to addictions issues, addressed in the Addictions Track may also be necessary.

A Clockwork Orange [Blu-ray]Stanley Kubrick's striking visual interpretation of Anthony Burgess's famous novel is a masterpiece. Malcolm McDowell delivers a clever, tongue-in-cheek performance as Alex, the leader of a quartet of droogs, a vicious group of young hoodlums who spend their nights stealing cars, fighting rival gangs, breaking into people's homes, and raping women. While other directors would simply exploit the violent elements of such a film without subtext, Kubrick maintains Burgess's dark, satirical social commentary. We watch Alex transform from a free-roaming miscreant into a convict used in a government experiment that attempts to reform criminals through an unorthodox new medical treatment. The catch, of course, is that this therapy may be nothing better than a quick cure-all for a society plagued by rampant crime. A Clockwork Orange works on many levels--visual, social, political, and sexual--and is one of the few films that hold up under repeated viewings. Kubrick not only presents colorfully arresting images, he also stylizes the film by utilizing classical music (and Wendy Carlos's electronic classical work) to underscore the violent scenes, which even today are disturbing in their display of sheer nihilism. Ironically, many fans of the film have missed that point, sadly being entertained by its brutality rather than being repulsed by it. --Bryan Reesman

It follows the story of a man in his thirties who has lost control of his life, and that of his family, while living the "hippie" lifestyle. Classic 70's lingo is also discussed, and terms such as "hardhat," "square," and "hippie" are defined.  Overall, this is a wonderful film about the hippie phenomenon.

The history of psychology and psychiatry build upon the various mental health diseases presented and their consequent treatments.

The series discusses significant issues in adolescent society and cuts through many barriers with its honest and relevant advice and information. Many teens suffer emotional abuse from their peers, family and other trusted adults. Emotional abuse can be difficult to define as there may not be physical signs, however it is clear that this form of destructive behavior is based on power and control. Emotional abuse can affect a student's self-esteem and greatly impair psychological development and social interaction. It can manifest itself in social withdrawal, severe anxiety, fearfulness, depression, physical complaints, substance abuse and the inability to feel and express emotions appropriately. Emotional abuse can occur when anger goes too far or when parents or teens in relationships constantly criticize and threaten resulting in damage to self-esteem and feelings of self-worth. In this program, Teens discuss their experiences with emotional abuse, how they recognize it and the effect and consequences it has now and can have on teens throughout their lives. Interspersed with the Teen discussions are valuable insights and guidance from clinical psychologist Dr Deborah Cooper. Dr Deborah Cooper is internationally known and a highly respected expert on relationships and personal growth. Dr. Cooper is a State License Marriage Family Child Counselor (MFCC) and holds a State Teaching Credential - Psychology and Hypnosis.

Invisible Child Abuse 	Invisible Child Abuse (Individual Version)Emotional child abuse is frequently overlooked in our focus on physical and sexual abuse, often invisible to those both outside and inside the family. However, the damage that emotional child abuse can inflict has severe impact later in life on a person's self-esteem, relationships, and career. In this film, actual group participants discuss how despite their successes they continue to treat themselves the way they were treated as children, and continually struggle with the ghosts of their childhood. In powerful footage, men and women discuss painful incidences, and uncover the legacy of emotional child abuse that often spans multiple generations. Featured therapist Dr. Robert Firestone works with these group participants to give them voice to the abuse they experienced, as well as to the child that couldn't then fight back. From watching this video, you'll learn: + How childhood emotional abuse is kept hidden, how it can have a damaging impact later in life, and how its legacy can span many generations. + What emotional child abuse looks like from many different perspectives and experiences. + How to give voice to childhood emotional abuse, and increase one's compassion in order to move beyond it.

Postcards from AmericaThis avant garde film is based on two angry autobiographical books by David Wojnarowicz: Close to the Knives and Memories That Smell Like Gasoline. Wojnarowicz, a noted performance artist, died of AIDS . The film examines three sides of his life. The first looks at his suburban childhood and the abuse he suffered at his alcoholic father's violent hand. The second chronicles his experiences as an teen-age street hustler and criminal in New York, and the third section, which is highly abstract, follows the adult Dave as he wanders through a dangerous desert. Once these identities are established, chronology is scattered to the winds, and the three ages of David play up to and comment on each other. The work of Wojnarowicz is also represented in Knud Vesterkov's film, By The Dawn's Early Light. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

The PrisonerTwo legendary actors at the height of their careers face off in a film so controversial that both the Cannes and Venice Film Festivals banned it. Following World War II, a strong-willed cardinal (Academy Award winner Alec Guinness, 1957 Best Actor, THE BRIDGE OVER RIVER KWAI) is arrested as a traitor to the state. His will is strong, but so is that of his inquisitor (Jack Hawkins), a seemingly benevolent man who uses oily charm to lure the cardinal into speaking freely. The interrogator eventually resorts to false evidence, dirty tricks and cruelty. Months pass, and the cardinal's spirit seems impossible to break. As the interviews become increasingly hostile, the captors turn to the last bastion of the immorally powerful: torture. Eventually the cardinal is exploited and destroyed. A tale for all times, all beliefs, and once witnessed, impossible to forget. THE PRISONER is a bold example of corruption, power and faith.

Mockingbird Don't SingFrom the age of one and a half to thirteen, Katie, was imprisoned by her parents. Locked in a room, tied and immobile, bound to a "potty-chair", Katie endured years of isolated silence punctuated by brutality. When Katie’s case finally came to public attention she was moved to a hospital in Los Angeles, where it was discovered she had never been taught to speak. Katie was an anomaly, a modern day Wild Child. Medical and psychological doctors descended on the girl in droves, often with selfish motivations in this heart-breaking story. With stunning care to detail Mockingbird Don’t Sing tells Katie’s story of imprisonment, discovery and her difficult road to joining the human family as a beautiful young woman.

Abuse: Pursuing WholenessDr. Coyle perceives sexual/ physical/emotional abuse to be the most extreme of all human violence and suffering. This comprehensive, yet highly compacted bio-psycho-social approach to the resolution of abuse issues combines the building or rebuilding of the self (through coordination with the Self-esteem and Goal-Setting Track) with a variety of coping resources needed for dealing with multiple traumas and betrayals. He specifically and directly addresses the losses, anger, trauma, assertiveness/boundary difficulties, and other challenges resulting from abuse.

Abuse affects fundamental developmental issues in contrast to trauma, which often more simply occurs following stable and expected development. Abuse destabilizes and threatens the foundations of personal development as well as inflicting trauma, making the educational approach to abuse a delicate and involved topic. Its complexity and the power of this track clearly require consultation with a therapist in collaboration with this programmed approach. The Self-Esteem and Goal Setting Track is highly recommended prior to this track. Additionally, because addictions are common among individuals who have been previously abused, attention to addictions issues, addressed in the Addictions Track may also be necessary.


Many additional resources can be foundincluding innovative web-based assessment tools by Dr. Coyle. All presentations have a handout/journal available to assist in learning this material. Other creative educational content is regularly being added. Streaming content, iPod and Unbox download formats are available. Distributors and purchasers of large quantities of these educational resources may call (888) 868-3191.

The WizardLess raunchy than Tommy and more conventional than Tron, The Wizard also revolves around gaming. There's even a Bridges on board. In Tron it was Jeff, in The Wizard it's Beau. As opposed to the rock opera’s pinball-playing "deaf, dumb, and blind kid," however, quasi-catatonic Jimmy (Luke Edwards) is a video game wiz. While the nine-year-old lives with his mother, half-brothers Corey (Fred Savage, circa The Wonder Years) and Nick (Christian Slater, fresh from Heathers) live with their father, Sam (Bridges). When Jimmy, who recently lost his sister, is placed in a home, Corey busts him out for a trip to California. (Today, Jimmy's condition would be labeled post-traumatic stress disorder.) As they're leaving Utah, they join forces with gaming enthusiast Haley (Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis), who suggests LA's National Video Game Championships. So, off they go by foot, skateboard, and the kindness of strangers. Sam, Nick, and obnoxious bounty hunter Putnam (Will Seltzer) are close behind. The outcome may be a foregone conclusion--the fractured family makes their peace--but The Wizard still offers a nostalgic, Nintendo-laden look at 1980s gamer culture (Power Glove, Super Mario Bros. 3, etc.). Plus, sharp-eyed viewers will spot Toby Maguire milling around before the showdown at Universal Studios Theme Park. If not for the hitchhiking, gambling, and reckless automotive destruction--after Putnam takes a knife to Sam's tires, Sam smashes his headlights with a shovel--the movie would be appropriate for all ages. In other words, it earns its PG rating. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

In "Drug and Alcohol Abuse", Dr. William Richard Miller demonstrates his approach to treating clients with problems involving substance abuse. Drug and alcohol abuse are a common presenting problem in therapy, second only to depression, so it benefits therapists to have an approach ready for this issue. Dr. Miller uses motivational interviewing, a Rogerian technique designed to increase a client's sense that he or she is capable of handling the problems they confront. In this session, Dr. Miller works with a woman who has been in and out of recovery for use of various substances who is aiming toward reducing her substance use. By reflectively listening and pointing out her strengths, Dr. Miller guides the client toward recognizing other interests in her life with which she can replace drug and alcohol use.

A Clockwork Orange [HD DVD]Stanley Kubrick's striking visual interpretation of Anthony Burgess's famous novel is a masterpiece. Malcolm McDowell delivers a clever, tongue-in-cheek performance as Alex, the leader of a quartet of droogs, a vicious group of young hoodlums who spend their nights stealing cars, fighting rival gangs, breaking into people's homes, and raping women. While other directors would simply exploit the violent elements of such a film without subtext, Kubrick maintains Burgess's dark, satirical social commentary. We watch Alex transform from a free-roaming miscreant into a convict used in a government experiment that attempts to reform criminals through an unorthodox new medical treatment. The catch, of course, is that this therapy may be nothing better than a quick cure-all for a society plagued by rampant crime. A Clockwork Orange works on many levels--visual, social, political, and sexual--and is one of the few films that hold up under repeated viewings. Kubrick not only presents colorfully arresting images, he also stylizes the film by utilizing classical music (and Wendy Carlos's electronic classical work) to underscore the violent scenes, which even today are disturbing in their display of sheer nihilism. Ironically, many fans of the film have missed that point, sadly being entertained by its brutality rather than being repulsed by it. --Bryan Reesman

Derailed (Unrated) [HD DVD]A clandestine love affair may claim a terrible price from two desperate people in this intelligent thriller. Charles Schine (Clive Owen) is an advertising executive who is happily married to Deana (Melissa George) and has a young daughter. However, that begins to change when Charles meets Lucinda Harris (Jennifer Aniston) on a commuter train. Lucinda, who is also married with a daughter, keep bumping into Charles on the train, and they strike up a friendship that soon grows into something deeper. Eventually Charles and Lucinda fall into infidelity, but the consequences turn out to be greater than they imagined; Philippe Laroche (Vincent Cassel) is a dangerous criminal with a taste for violence who has learned about the affair. Laroche demands a substantial payment if he is to keep the word of Charles and Lucinda's relationship from their spouses, but they become convinced that Laroche is not to be trusted and that he may mean to do greater harm to their loved ones that simply telling them they've been unfaithful. Derailed was the first American project for Swedish filmmaker Mikael Hafstrom.

Real Life Teens: Emotional AbuseReal Life Teens is an unbiased and realistic look from the perspective of teens, at the wide variety of issues teens face today featuring young teenagers telling their real stories, in their own words. The series discusses significant issues in adolescent society and cuts through many barriers with its honest and relevant advice and information. Many teens suffer emotional abuse from their peers, family and other trusted adults. Emotional abuse can be difficult to define as there may not be physical signs, however it is clear that this form of destructive behavior is based on power and control. Emotional abuse can affect a student's self-esteem and greatly impair psychological development and social interaction. It can manifest itself in social withdrawal, severe anxiety, fearfulness, depression, physical complaints, substance abuse and the inability to feel and express emotions appropriately. Emotional abuse can occur when anger goes too far or when parents or teens in relationships constantly criticize and threaten resulting in damage to self-esteem and feelings of self-worth. In this program, Teens discuss their experiences with emotional abuse, how they recognize it and the effect and consequences it has now and can have on teens throughout their lives. Interspersed with the Teen discussions are valuable insights and guidance from clinical psychologist Dr Deborah Cooper. Dr Deborah Cooper is internationally known and a highly respected expert on relationships and personal growth. Dr. Cooper is a State License Marriage Family Child Counselor (MFCC) and holds a State Teaching Credential - Psychology and Hypnosis.
