„Mögen alle Wesen glücklich sein!“ lautet ein bekannter Segensspruch der Buddhisten. Was können wir tun, um diesem anspruchsvollen Ziel näher zu kommen? Sind wir nicht alle gespalten in positive und destruktive Wesensanteile? Pema Chödrön, die wohl populärste Lehrerin des tibetischen Buddhismus, fordert uns auf zu wählen, welche Anteile wir in uns fördern möchten. Dazu benötigen wir den Mut, uns bewusst mit Ängsten und unseren negativen Denkgewohnheiten auseinanderzusetzen. Wie wir diesen Erkenntnisprozess ins Leben umsetzen, zeigt die Autorin mit Übungen, die auch ohne Meditationspraxis durchgeführt werden können. Wir lernen, den Alltag als unseren Lehrer zu betrachten. Je bewusster wir leben, desto mehr wird die tägliche Erfahrung zu einem Übungsfeld, in dem wir unsere natürliche Wärme, Offenheit und Intelligenz frei legen können, um sie der Welt zum Geschenk zu machen. So kann der Sprung in die Freiheit gelingen. Mit Übungen – auch ohne Meditationspraxis anwendbar.

If you eat to help manage your emotions, you may have discovered that it doesn’t work. Once you’re done eating, you might even feel worse. Eating can all too easily become a strategy for coping with depression, anxiety, boredom, stress, and anger, and a reliable reward when it’s time to celebrate. If you are ready to experience emotions without consuming them or being consumed by them, the mindfulness, acceptance, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills in End Emotional Eating can help. This book does not focus on what or how to eat—rather, these scientifically supported skills will teach you how to manage emotions and urges gracefully, live in the present moment, learn from your feelings, and cope with distress skillfully.

One of the few books on the treatment of psychological trauma in children that provides specific, in-depth individual, group, and family therapy interventions for complex psychological trauma, Treating Complex Trauma in Children and Their Families: An Integrative Approach focuses on the treatment of 6-12 year-old children and their relevant family members. Renowned authors Cheryl B. Lanktree and John N. Briere use their evidence-based, yet flexible treatment model, Integrative Treatment of Complex Trauma for Children (ITCT-C), as they address the use of play therapy, attachment processing, mindfulness, and other approaches, as well as interventions with family/caretaker and community systems. The authors emphasize a culturally sensitive, destigmatizing, and empowering perspective that supports both recovery and posttraumatic growth. Clinical examples and specific tools illustrate how assessment is used to guide individualized and developmentally-appropriate interventions.
