Your emotions contain brilliant information. When you learn to welcome them as your allies, they can reveal creative solutions to any situation. For 35 years, empathic counselor and researcher Karla McLaren has developed a set of practical tools for the real-world stresses of family, career, and the quest for personal fulfillment. In The Language of Emotions, she presents her breakthrough teachings for a new and empowering relationship with your feeling states. Your emotions—especially the dark and dishonored ones—hold a tremendous amount of energy. We’ve all seen what happens when we repress or blindly express them. However, there is a powerful alternative. In The Language of Emotions, you’ll learn to meet your emotions and engage with them to safely move toward resolution and equilibrium. Through experiential exercises covering a full spectrum of feelings from anger, fear, and shame to jealousy, grief, joy, and more, you will discover how to work with your own and others’ emotions with fluency and expertise. When we relate to our emotions with respect and authenticity, we can directly access our innermost wisdom, unfold the deepest parts of ourselves, and heal our most painful wounds. The Language of Emotions gives us a much-needed resource for self-understanding and freedom: How to overcome addictions, distractions, and unresolved trauma—the three primary impediments to emotional ease Using the energy of anger to protect and restore personal boundaries Step-by-step guidance in the five skills of the empath (someone skilled in reading emotions) How to balance your “quaternity,” a metaphor for the interplay of mind, body, spirit, and emotions Honoring sadness as a source of release and rejuvenation Joy, the natural response to beauty and communion Praise “In my graduate education in counseling psychology, I found very little information about our emotions. Yet in my work as a therapist and educator, I’ve seen that emotions are key to healing. Karla McLaren’s book offers an outstanding guide to the signals and messages emotions send us, along with clear instructions for intelligent and emotion-supporting actions we can take in response. Karla has made a huge contribution to the well-being of us all; The Language of Emotions will become required reading in all of my courses.”—Nancy —Feehan, MFT, adjunct professor of counseling psychology at the University of San Francisco “Karla McLaren’s unique, empathic view of emotions surprisingly revalues even the most ‘negative’ emotions and opens pathways to understanding the depths of the human soul.” —Michael Meade, author of The World Behind the World and The Water of Life “This book changed the way I relate to others, and to myself, forever.” —Gavin De Becker, author of The Gift of Fear

Counseling the Communicatively Disabled and Their Families: A Manual for Clinicians, Second Edition, written by George H. Shames, emphasizes the development of specific interviewing and counseling skills for speech-language pathologists and audiologists, which is a requirement of ASHA's clinical certification standards. The book offers a clear, basic definition of counseling, then builds a picture of the multidimensional role of counseling in speech-language pathology and audiology using anecdotal references to clinical cases. Among the changes in the Second Edition, Dr. Shames, a licensed speech-language pathologist as well as a licensed clinical psychologist, has expanded the theoretical overviews that ground the "learning by doing" skill development feature of this updated edition. Practicing clinicians and students in communication disorders programs, in addition to social workers and clinical psychologists, will find this book invaluable to their training as focused, helpful evaluators and counselors of the communicatively disabled. It will also apply to training in other contexts and circumstances wherein counseling is appropriate.

Love More, Binge Less, and Stay Fit breaks new ground with its cutting-edge approach to permanent weight loss. For the first time, overcoming years of constant weight struggle is defined by more than nutrition and exercise. We all want to know how to escape from ongoing weight fluctuations, food guilt, dieting misery, and body image insecurity. We also want to know how to find the best diet to get to our dream body size and weight that we imagine will provide a turning point toward a fit body and self-confidence. In this book, Annie Stern writes with compassion and great insight to isolate the four big obstacles and the five secrets that change the perspective of weight loss and the diet industry. The goal is to create permanent changes between the relationship we have with food and with our body. This book provides a road map to illustrate why restrictive diets followed by guilt-ridden binges, overeating, and body hatred show up in our life as a constant weight struggle. Have you tried every new diet or weight-loss plan and chronic exercising but you're still gaining back the pounds you lost within a few months? Perhaps this frustration sends you in search of still another plan, which ends in the spinning wheel of compulsion to dieting for years to come. In that case, this book is for you. Our degree of readiness is the key to paying attention to what's behind the symptoms as we seek the solutions for how to stop fighting food, fighting with our fridge, or fighting with our body-but mainly with ourselves. Only then we will find real joy with our bodies again.
