Part recovery, part self-help, and all real, raw stories of waking up for the sake of your self and your children, Mommy Doesn’t Drink Here Anymore follows one mother’s journey from cocktail mama to sober mama. The loving mother of twins and a newborn, Brownell used alcohol to maintain a sense of her adult self and be more than “just mommy.” It didn’t take long before her drinking spiraled out of control, consuming her life and marriage, and she realized that she needed serious help. Both heart-wrenching and inspiring, this is Brownell’s true-life story, from the first thirty days to the year mark. Mommy Doesn’t Drink Here Anymore is not a book that preaches or simply takes the reader through the Twelve Steps. It provides hope and motivation to get into a program and balance your life as a mother and a recovering alcoholic. Atem is a living Magus, an icon for the twenty-first century. Part transpersonal shaman, part inner guide, part inner healer, part role model, Atem becomes a personal therapist, a guide to self-discovery and self-initiation. Atem, as healing fiction, helps readers to create their own breakthroughs, their own catharsis - emotional clearing that frees energy from internal conflict to flow creatively into new expressions.

Even if you don't happen to be a celebrity, this book will teach you methods for striking publishing gold—conceptualizing, selling, and marketing a memoir—while dealing with the complicated emotions that arise during the creation of your work. If you've ever been told that "You should really write a book" and you've decided to give it a try, this book is for you. It hones in on the three key measures necessary for aspiring authors to conceptualize, sell, and market their memoirs. Written especially for those who don't happen to be celebrities You Should Really Write a Book reveals why and how so many relatively unknown memoirists are making a name for themselves. With references to more than four hundred books and six memoir categories, this is essential reading for anyone wanting to write a commercially viable memoir in today's vastly changing publishing industry. The days are long gone when editors and agents were willing to take on a manuscript simply because it was based on a "good" idea or even because it was well written. With eyes focused on the bottom line, they now look for skilled and creative authors with an established audience, too. Brooks and Richardson use the latest social networking, marketing, and promotional trends and explain how to conceptualize and strategize campaigns that cause buzz, dramatically fueling word-of-mouth and attracting attention in the publishing world and beyond. Full of current examples and in-depth analysis, this guide explains what sells and why, teaches writers to think like publishers, and offers guidance on dealing with complicated emotions—essential tools for maximizing memoir success.

According to the popular press in the mid twentieth century, American women, in a misguided attempt to act like men in work and leisure, were drinking more. “Lady Lushes” were becoming a widespread social phenomenon. From the glamorous hard-drinking flapper of the 1920s to the disgraced and alcoholic wife and mother played by Lee Remick in the 1962 film “Days of Wine and Roses,” alcohol consumption by American women has been seen as both a prerogative and as a threat to health, happiness, and the social order. In Lady Lushes, medical historian Michelle L. McClellan traces the story of the female alcoholic from the late-nineteenth through the twentieth century. She draws on a range of sources to demonstrate the persistence of the belief that alcohol use is antithetical to an idealized feminine role, particularly one that glorifies motherhood. Lady Lushes offers a fresh perspective on the importance of gender role ideology in the formation of medical knowledge and authority.

Teens receive hundreds of mixed messages about things, especially about alcohol. There is a fine line between the celebration and presence of alcohol to earmark a special occasion and the danger of reliance on alcohol to experience life, whether it's up or down. The messages can be confusing and important self-preserving opinions can remain ambivalent. This book addresses the mixed message and controversies of alcohol and alcoholism. Readers will evaluate the dangers of binge drinking, and the appropriate legal drinking age. Also discussed are the existence of a genetic predisposition or a natural tolerance among alcoholics, and the effectiveness of Alcoholics Anonymous in treating alcoholism. Essays and personal accounts provide an array of viewpoints, which allows readers to think critically about what they are learning, and how what they think fits into each debate. Stellar essay sources include the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Surgeon General, National Institutes of Health, and the Saint Jude Retreat House.

Jugendliche und junge Erwachsene stehen Veränderungen, die in der Therapie angegangen werden sollen, oftmals ambivalent und zweifelnd gegenüber. Fehlende Gesprächsbereitschaft oder Abwehrhaltung sind die Folgen. Naar-King und Suarez erläutern anhand vieler Beispiele das Prinzip und die konkrete Umsetzung der Motivierenden Gesprächsführung. Es geht darum, den jungen Klienten die Diskrepanzen aufzuzeigen, die zwischen ihren eigentlichen Werten und Zielen und ihrem tatsächlichen Verhalten bestehen. Dadurch verstärkt sich der Wunsch der Jugendlichen, mit Hilfe des Therapeuten am eigenen Verhalten zu arbeiten. Die notwendigen Kommunikationsstrategien werden anschaulich im Buch vermittelt. Aus dem Inhalt: I Grundlagen:1 Einleitung. 2 Pubertät und junges Erwachsenenalter. 3 Die Grundhaltung der Motivierenden Gesprächsführung. 4 Personenzentrierte Beratungsqualitäten. 5 Auf Widerstand reagieren. 6 Change Talk. 7 Commitment. 8.
