Book Description :

"Born in the cauldron of personal experience of suffering and healing and honed through years of professional experience, this book will help anyone understand the attractors of love and consequent suffering. I recommend it to couples who are mystified by the depth and repitition of their pain and joy and to therapists whose destiny is to help them." ~ Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., co-author with Helen LaKelly Hunt of Making Marriage Simple: Transform the Relationship you Have Into the Relationship you Want Since the dawn of civilization, men and women have been magnetically and irresistibly drawn together into romantic relationships, not so much by what they see, feel and think, but more by invisible forces. When individuals with healthy emotional backgrounds meet, the irresistible “love force” creates a sustainable, reciprocal and stable relationship. Codependents and emotional manipulators are similarly enveloped in a seductive dreamlike state; however, it will later unfold into a painful “seesaw” of love, pain, hope and disappointment. The soul mate of the codependent’s dreams will become the emotional manipulator of their nightmares. Readers of the Human Magnet Syndrome will better understand why they, despite their dreams for true love, find themselves hopelessly and painfully in love with partners who hurt them. This book will guide and inspire both the layman and the professional.

Book Description :

A psychotherapist’s guide to codependency, narcissism, the treatment of narcissistic abuse, and achieving healthy love from yourself and others. Since the dawn of civilization, people have been magnetically and irresistibly drawn together, not so much by what they see, feel, and think, but more by invisible, unconscious romantic forces. This seductive, alluring, and seemingly impossible-to-avoid love force is the Human Magnet Syndrome. It bends oppositely-matched partners in a breakup-resistant, rollercoaster-like relationship. Magnetic-like attraction, or “chemistry,” brings codependents and narcissists together in an enchanting fantasy that can never be sustained. Given time, a codependent’s soulmate dreams will predictably melt away, leaving them with the cellmate reality. This revised and updated, breakthrough book not only explains why codependents habitually fall prey to harmful and manipulative narcissists, but also why they predictably sabotage their dreams for freedom, happiness, and self-love. Rosenberg’s pioneering work on relationships, codependency, and narcissism is a necessary road map for receiving healthy love—both from others and ourselves. Praise for The Human Magnet Syndrome “I recommend The Human Magnet Syndrome to those who work in social services, education, chemical dependency, or the counseling fields and to the people they touch. It’s time to wake up and this brilliant book sounds the alarm we need.”—Melody Beattie, bestselling author of Codependent No More “This book will help anyone understand the attractors of love and consequent suffering. I recommend it to couples who are mystified by the depth and repetition of their pain, and to therapists whose destiny is to help them.”—Harville Hendrix, bestselling co-author of Getting the Love You Want and creator of Imago Relationship Therapy

Do you think that you are victim of gaslighting? Would you like to stop this issue and take control of your life? Codependency is the intense emotional dependence on a partner. The codependent feels as though she can only live with her partner present.

Codependence and emotional dependence predispose to emotional manipulation in insane and collusive relationships. Emotional manipulation can take the form of bullying, isolation, gaslighting, rejection, verbal threats, and in many cases, it can lead to physical abuse, especially in personal relationships. The impact of emotional abuse can be very devastating and often leaves the victims demoralized and feeling stripped of their self-esteem. An emotional manipulator uses various tools to engage in abuse. But one of the most used, if not the most used, is gaslighting. An emotional manipulator uses various tools to engage in abuse.

We will discover some of the signs that reveal their true personality. In DSM-5, there are nine main criteria for narcissistic personality disorder. In a relationship, these highlight superiority, involving taking advantage of others, lacking empathy, demanding approval, believing they are unique, and being arrogant. The DSM states that almost 6.2% of the population of adults may have this disease. You may have met some of them. If they have this disorder of personality, they have an enduring and narrow pattern of behavior that keeps repeating, despite what you do. Later we will talk about why to ask for divorce from a narcissist; How to manage conflicts and stop justifying abuse; How to start respecting yourself and get rid of the spell of a narcissist; How to manage and overcome loneliness in order to get a new vision of your life and be able to live serene and free. This guide is for those people who have been affected by the narcissists, however, for the narcissists as well. It is to help those people who are attracted to the people having Narcissistic Personality Disorder. As a whole, it can be a way forward on the journey to the healing process from the narcissistic relationship.

Sexuality and Its Disorders explores sexuality from an evolutionary perspective using powerful, real-life case studies to help readers provide effective guidance around issues relating to sexuality. Drawing on his 30 years of clinical experience and research, author Mike Abrams provides a comprehensive, evidence-based, and clinically-oriented text with cutting-edge coverage throughout. Discussions include the physical and psychological development of sexual identity; the social aspects of sexual behavior; the many expressions of sexuality; cognitive behavior treatment of sexual problems; and more. The many perspectives of sexuality are examined with interviews and commentaries from major figures in the field—including David M. Buss, Helen Fisher, C. Sue Carter of Kinsey, Todd K. Shackelford, Ken Zucker, and Gordon Gallup—who discuss such topics as the origins of sexuality, the nature of love, the role of attachment, and the treatment of sexual problems.

Book Description :

The time has come to stop pathologizing the desire to love, help, and care for an addicted loved one. In Prodependence, Weiss presents a research-based social and psychological understanding of human interdependence, accepting and even celebrating human interdependency in ways that are healthy and life-affirming for each person. This ground-breaking work presents a new paradigm for useful and healthy support in the face of addiction, offering both the lay reader and professional an evolved prism through which they can examine, evaluate, and improve not just relationships affected by addiction (though that's the primary focus of this book), but relationships in general. Prodependence, a new psychological term created by Robert Weiss to describe healthy interdependence in the modern world, turns this around. Rather that preaching detachment and distance over continued bonding and assistance, as so many therapists, self-help books, and 12-step groups currently do, prodependence celebrates the human need for and pursuit of intimate connection, viewing this as a positive force for change. Simply stated, prodependence occurs when attachment relationships are mutually beneficial- with one person's strengths filling in the weak points of the other, and vice versa. And this can occur even when an addiction is present

After meeting my first psychopath, I had to know where his humanity went. But after meeting many more over 20 years, while working as an acting and meditation coach, the worlds of Buddhism and Psychopathy converged. Another pattern emerged, and that was the fast decline in empathy in general. Whether we wanted to be detached or callously indifferent, the end result was the same. Our emotional illiteracy had blocked our understanding, and without understanding, there is no empathy. Take a journey of involution with me as we plunge into human consciousness to connect once again with ourselves and each other.

Jane, is a composite character of many women, some fictional and some similar to true life. She is beautiful, strong-willed, intelligent and athletic. No one would suspect that shes a victim of Domestic Violence against Women. Jane encompasses the types of domestic abuse women suffer. She is brainwashed to be a people pleaser. She represses her true feelings to survive her home and school life. Jane must appear positive and happy to avoid punishment. She is disempowered to assert herself. To avoid the disappointment of her parents Jane lies and steals to get her wants and dreams met. She is screaming inside with her need to be loved unconditionally. Jane rebels by detaching from herself. Her unrealistic world view causes her to be co-dependent, vulnerable and nave, a walking target for domestic abuse against women. In the end she is empowered to finally get free and to heal. Praise for You Dont have to be a Wimp to be Abused (for Women) Wallin crafts a brilliant, insightful work. Readers will learn practical ways to deal with their issues. You wont be able to put this book down even if you dont identify with Jane. The Quick Reference Guide really nails the issues. ~ Marlene Worrell, novelist and screenwriter; latest release is Angel in Shining Armor. Very interesting and informative. I like the idea of using a fictional character narrative to explore the various issues surrounding domestic abuse. The technique works well and is preferable to the more traditional methods. ~ Laurence French

Henry Lindon is playing a game of tit for tat that he’s about to lose. ​Successful, charming executive Henry Lindon was happily making high-dollar global deals and enjoying the good life in Dallas when his job mysteriously disappears—and with it, his identity. On top of that, he’s sure his beautiful wife is having an affair with some Romeo down in Argentina. While attempting to start a new life teaching law, Lindon is finding his paranoia has got him around the throat and won’t let go. In class one day, the discussion goes off track from law and libel to tattoos. When a student appears in his office in pink shorts and a crop top and takes the subject of tattoos to a much-too-personal level, Lindon’s at a loss to explain why and worried about ramifications. Discovering he may have the Department of Justice on his back with phony felony charges, he’s reaching his breaking point and nothing’s making sense. Two tattoos, a murder, and an old rivalry are part of a distant game of revenge that’s about to come full circle.

Book Description :

This book addresses the ways in which clinical psychologists ought to conceptualize and respond to the prejudice and oppression that their clients experience. Thus, the link between prejudice and oppression to psychopathology is explored. Basic scientific information about prejudice is reviewed, and the current status of the major minority groups is explored. Chapters examine the role of prejudice and oppression in institutional structures such as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and professional organizations. The discussion addresses ways to assess these phenomena in individual cases and how to intervene in psychotherapy. The book ventures to evaluate the status of the profession of psychology with respect to prejudice, stigmatization, and oppression by critically examining evidence that the profession has responded adequately to these social problems. These issues are hard to talk about and are not well talked about in the field. This book is a push in the right direction.

Book Description :

The lives of African American gay men have greatly gone unnoticed in the American consciousness. Despite the fact that Black gay men have made great contributions to our global society. For example, James Baldwin served as a literature giant. Bayard Rustin was one of the key organizers of the 1963 March on Washington. Alphonso David is the first person of color to lead the HRC (Human Rights Campaign). The purpose of this book is to discuss the narratives of Black gay men. There is no doubt that American history has done a nonexistent job of portraying the lives of these Black gay men. Most of these lives have been relegated to the background of society. This book purposes to change that narrative by having 10 to 12 gentlemen discuss their background and how it brought them to where they are in life now. The goal of this book is to also discuss the victory for each of the authors. Praise for Unheard Voices: A Collection of Narratives by Black, Gay & Bisexual Men "Open and transparent discussion about the lives and important contributions of African American gay men is long overdue. Rarely are marginalized people from any walk of life afforded the well-deserved positive attention from mainstream media outside of sports and pop entertainment culture. It has always been important for us to represent ourselves in this regard rather than wait for somnambulant media professionals to wake up and properly embark upon inclusionary coverage of positive images reflected by non-dominant members of society. Unheard Voices: A Collection of Narratives by black gay and bi-sexual men is an essential literary commentary that does exactly that. I will definitely use it as an important reference in my work as an LGBTQ activist." Sheila Fay Waters, Ph.D. Social Psychologist "Unheard Voices establishes a distinctive position, providing a testament to the lived experiences of a group that have become further marginalized, and stigmatized in academia, as well as in the black community. It is a piece of work that boldly, and unapologetically provides a glimpse into a culture, that is hidden, which doesn’t fit the stereotypical narrative of the black male experience in America. Those seeking to gain insight and understanding, as well as direction to navigate challenges faced by black men, this is a must read. By incorporating this piece of work into both academic and social circles, as added value, can elevate and transcend barriers, so those from such marginalized groups, will have a seat at the table. This collection of stories provides wisdom, and a narrative of overcoming some of the darkest obstacles faced by black men from the LGBTQIA community." Carl Featherston MA.Ed, Ed.S Scholarly-Practitioner "Unheard Voices is arguably one of the most open and pure writings from individuals who have navigated life as Black, Gay or Bisexual men. While we have always been present our presence hasn’t always been valued. Our contributions to society are undeniable but we could only be viewed through a lens that made others comfortable. Today, these exceptional men, in their own voices, share their stories which, I hope, will serve as source of enlightenment and encouragement to everyone! This is a must read regardless of your age, gender, sexual preference or race. You will indeed be better informed!" Pedro W. Douglas, Ed.D. Retired University Administrator
