Relationship Rescue : A Seven Step Strategy For Reconnecting With Your Partner [ABRIDGED]

0743500466


·
 
Book Review
As a follow-up to his bestselling book Life Strategies, Oprah acolyte Phillip C. McGraw, Ph.D., moves from aiding the aimless individual to coaching the disconnected couple. McGraw has distilled his more than two decades of counseling experience into a seven-step strategy he calls "Relationship Rescue."

"I'm prepared to kick a hole in the wall of the pain-ridden, unhappy maze you've gotten yourself into, and provide you clear access to action-oriented answers and instructions on what you must do to have what you want," says Dr. Phil. His aim is to expose and eliminate the saboteurs that cause senseless damage to already-fragile marriages, and, like an emotional root canal, to replace them with values he says provide positive results. If you follow Dr. Phil's strategy, he will lead you on a precise journey to uncover your...

Healing for Damaged Emotions
David A. Seamands
0896939383
Oct 1991
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Preface Early in my pastoral experience, I discovered that I was failing to help two groups of people through the regular ministries of the church. Their problems were not being solved by the preaching of the Word, commitment to Christ, the filling of the Spirit, prayer, or the Sacraments. I saw one group being driven into futility and loss of confidence in God's power. While they desperately prayed, their prayers about personal problems didn't seem to be answered. They tried every Christian discipline, but with no result. As they played the same old cracked record of their defeats, the needle would get stuck in repetitive emotional patterns. While they kept up the outward observances of praying and paying and professing, they were going deeper and deeper into disillusionment and despair. I...

All You Need Is Love and Other Lies About Marriage : A Proven Strategy to Make Your Marriage Work, from a Leading Couples Therapist

0060509309


·
 
From Publishers Weekly
This particularly thoughtful and articulate volume marks the arrival of major new voice in couple’s psychology. A professor at NYU’s School of Medicine, Jacobs has also run a private psychiatric practice for the past 30 years, and his experience working with couples in both locations informs the practical, realistic view of marriage he presents in this book. "Virtually everyone has significant problems at some time in their marriage," he acknowledges. Some of those problems are made by husbands and wives, he explains; some of them are caused by biology, or by the tremendous social and economic changes of the past 40 years. Some are handed down generation after generation in families. Jacobs considers each of these sources in turn as he deconstructs "The Seven Lies of Marriage"—among them the ideas...

Review
"We have come a long way from 1972 when AMCD was initially chartered as the Association of Non-White Concerns in Personnel and Guidance. Derald Wing Sue and David Sue's new book, COUNSELING THE CULTURALLY DIVERSE, opens with a giant bull's-eye that very elegantly depicts the current conceptualization of multiculturals and diversity. This conceptualization is complex, with a focus on addressing multiple components and layers such as race, gender, sexual orientation, religious preference, culture, disability/ability, ethnicity, geographic location, age and even marital status." —Counseling Today (ACA publication), David Kaplan, President of ACA

Boundaries
Dr. Henry Cloud, Dr. John Townsend
0310247454
April 1, 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
In order to call themselves good Christians, many people have drawn overly flexible boundaries (unwilling to say no, always accommodating others' needs) or overly rigid boundaries (to the point of being righteous and judgmental). Psychologists and inspirational speakers Cloud and Townsend show readers how to set reasonable boundaries in order to follow the true path of Christianity. This book has become immensely popular, most likely because it makes personal boundaries easier to define and is filled with spiritual purpose. Some cautions: the format can be overly self-helpish for such a complex discussion and the authors at one point imply that judicious spankings may be an acceptable form of setting boundaries with children. However, many Christians will probably find themselves grateful for this biblical context of...


Basic Christian Leadership
John Stott
0830823050
Aug 2002
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Leadership today is no easy task. Christian leaders face pitfalls on every side, whether tensions from within the community or pressures from without. Those called to shepherd others get caught in power struggles and are tempted to abuse their pastoral authority. Pastors may rely on their own professional abilities and training rather than depend on God. Too often our models of leadership are shaped more by culture than by Christ, as we employ methods of ministry incompatible with true servanthood. But there is hope. Lifelong pastor and renowned biblical expositor John Stott directs contemporary church leaders to the most influential leader of the early church--the apostle Paul. Unpacking the opening chapters of Paul's first epistle to the church in Corinth, Stott recovers a vision for biblical leadership, one that...

Motivational Interviewing, Second Edition: Preparing People for Change
William R. Miller, Stephen Rollnick
1572305630
April 12, 2002
Hardcover
·
 
Review
"Miller and Rollnick have initiated an interdisciplinary movement in how practitioners can interact with patients to facilitate behavior change. The term motivational interviewing (MI) is even becoming part of the vernacular in medicine. However, the diffusion process runs the risk of diluting the spirit and fidelity of MI. This second edition will help to circumvent this tendency. The book adds substance, breadth, clarity, and evidence to the clinical and training processes, and will add momentum to mainstreaming motivational approaches to behavior change in health care. Primary care physicians and practitioners can enrich their professional work and improve patient outcomes by learning about MI. I expect exponential progress will occur over the next 10 years."--Rick Botelho, MD, Department of Family Medicine, University of...
