The Highly Sensitive Person's Guide to Dealing with Toxic People: How to Reclaim Your Power from Nar

Author: Shahida Arabi Ma Narrator: Laural Merlington Release Date: April 2021

If you're a highly sensitive person, or identify as an 'empath,' you may feel easily overwhelmed by the world around you, suffer from 'people-pleasing,' experience extreme anxiety or stress in times of conflict, or even take on the emotions of others. Due to your naturally giving nature, you may also be a target for narcissists and self-centered individuals who seek to exploit others for their own gain. So, how can you protect yourself? In The Highly Sensitive Person's Guide to Dealing with Toxic People, you'll learn evidence-based skills grounded in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to help you recognize and shut down the common manipulation tactics used by toxic people, such as gaslighting, stonewalling, projection, covert put-downs, and love bombing. You'll also discover targeted tips to protect yourself from the five main types of toxic people: garden-variety boundary-steppers; crazymakers and attention-seekers; emotional vampires; narcissists; and sociopaths and psychopaths. Finally, you'll learn how to heal from toxic or narcissistic abuse, and find strategies for establishing healthy boundaries and a strong sense of self. If you're an HSP who is ready to take a stand against the toxic people in your life, this book has everything you need to survive and thrive.

Outsmart Your Anxious Brain: Ten Simple Ways to Beat the Worry Trick Audiobook

Outsmart Your Anxious Brain: Ten Simple Ways to Beat the Worry Trick

Author: David A. Carbonell, Ph.D. Narrator: Stephen R. Thorne Release Date: April 2021

It's time to outsmart your worry and anxiety. Drawing on the same cutting-edge psychology presented in author David Carbonell's The Worry Trick, this irreverent, on-the-go guide offers ten powerful 'counter-intuitive' strategies to help you put worry in its place-anytime, anywhere. Anxiety is a powerful force. It makes us question our decisions and ourselves, worry about the future, and it fills our days with dread and emotional turbulence. But what if we understood that anxiety is merely a trick of the mind, trying to convince us we're in danger? Anxiety is like a magician behind the curtain, playing subtle tricks on us to convince us that we're in danger when we're not. When we understand this, we can observe our anxious feelings with some distance. Based on the author's popular book, The Worry Trick, this helpful and humorous guide identifies the 'trick' of chronic anxiety, and provides the ten most powerful techniques based in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you respond differently to panic, anxiety, worry, and phobias. Once you learn to respond differently to the worry trick, you'll be able to break the cycle of chronic anxiety for good.

Listening to Ecstasy: The Transformative Power of MDMA Audiobook

Listening to Ecstasy: The Transformative Power of MDMA

Author: Charles Wininger Narrator: Charles Wininger Release Date: April 2021

A personal narrative and guide to the safe, responsible use of MDMA for personal healing and social transformation • Details the author's 50 years of responsible experimentation with mind-altering substances and how Ecstasy has helped him become a better therapist • Explains how he and his wife found Ecstasy to be the key to renewing and enriching their lives and marriage as they entered their senior years • Describes what the experience actually feels like and provides protocols for the safe, responsible, recreational, and celebrational use of MDMA for individuals and groups In a world that keeps us separate from each other, MDMA is the chemical of connection. Aptly known in popular culture as "Ecstasy," MDMA helps us rediscover our own true loving nature, often obscured by the traumas of life. On its way to becoming a prescription medication due to groundbreaking research on its use to treat PTSD, Ecstasy can offer benefits for all adult life stages, from 20-somethings to seniors. In this memoir and guide to safe use, Charles Wininger, a licensed psychoanalyst and mental health counselor, details the countless ways that Ecstasy has helped him become a better therapist and husband. He recounts his coming of age in the 1960s counterculture, his 50 years of responsible experimentation with mind-altering substances, and his immersion in the new psychedelic renaissance. He explains how he and his wife found Ecstasy to be the key to renewing and enriching their lives as they entered their senior years. It also strengthened the bonds of their marriage. Countering the fearful propaganda that surrounds this drug, Wininger describes what the experience actually feels like and explores the value of Ecstasy and similar substances for helping psychologically healthy individuals live a more "optimal" life. He provides protocols for the responsible, recreational, and celebrational use of MDMA, including how to perfect the experience, maximize the benefits and minimize the risks, and how it may not be for everyone. He reveals how MDMA has revitalized his marriage, both erotically and emotionally, and describes how pleasure, fun, and joy can be profound bonding and transformative experiences. Revealing MDMA's versatility when it comes to bringing lasting renewal, pleasure, and inspiration to one's life, Wininger shows that recognizing the transformative power of happiness-inducing experiences can be the first step on the path to healing.

Author: Martin N. Seif, Ph.D., Sally M. Winston, Psy.D. Narrator: Holly Adams Release Date: April 2021

'How do I know I made the right decision?' 'What if I'm wrong?' 'I need to know for sure.' Do you have thoughts like these-thoughts that cause you to second-guess yourself? Do you find yourself repeatedly checking your email for no reason, asking others for their opinions about something again and again, or lying awake at night overanalyzing and planning ahead in an attempt to feel less anxious? If so, you probably have a problem with compulsive reassurance seeking. The good news is that you can break free from this 'reassurance trap'-this book will show you how. In this unique guide, you'll find proven-effective tips and tools using CBT to help you tolerate uncertainty, face specific worrying scenarios, and gradually reduce the compulsion to incessantly seek reassurance. Most importantly, you'll learn to deal with those pesky 'doubt attacks' and trust your own judgment.

The Development of a Therapist: Healing Others - Healing Self Audiobook

The Development of a Therapist: Healing Others - Healing Self

Author: Louis Cozolino Narrator: Stephen Bel Davies Release Date: April 2021

A conversational and practical guide to the next level of professional development. Louis Cozolino, one of our most compelling clinical writers, takes us inside the mind and heart of a seasoned therapist, carrying on the tradition of personal and professional writing begun in The Making of a Therapist. This book discusses some of the more abstract concepts and ways of interacting with clients such as relaxed curiosity, finding the secret ally, and discovering the deep narrative. Also addressed are clinical concepts such as related states of mind, the process of change, free-floating attention, and listening with the third ear. More than just theoretical commentary, the book offers concrete clinical advice for the experienced therapist and brings a fresh perspective to some of the most current clinical challenges, including the complexities of executive functioning; treating clients with internet addiction; and taking responsibility for your continued personal growth, clinical supervision, and education after leaving school.

Losing Our Minds: What Mental Illness Really Is  – and What It Isn’t Audiobook

Losing Our Minds: What Mental Illness Really Is – and What It Isn’t

Author: Lucy Foulkes Narrator: Lucy Foulkes Release Date: April 2021

Brought to you by Penguin. We need to rethink the conversation around mental health. Public awareness of mental illness has been transformed in recent years, but our understanding of what it actually is has yet to catch up. Too often, psychiatric disorders are confused with the inherent stresses and challenges of human experience. A narrative has taken hold that a mental health crisis has been building among young people in recent years - one that, with the arrival of Covid-19, is set to get far worse. In this profoundly sensitive and constructive book, psychologist Lucy Foulkes argues that the crisis is one of ignorance as much as illness. Have we raised a 'snowflake' generation? Or are today's young people subjected to greater stress, exacerbated by social media, than ever before? Foulkes shows that both perspectives are useful but limited. As the effects of the pandemic take hold, the real question in need of answering is: how should we distinguish between 'normal' suffering and actual illness? Drawing on her extensive knowledge of the scientific and clinical literature, Foulkes explains what is known about mental health problems - how they arise, why they so often appear during adolescence, the various tools we have to cope with them - but also what remains unclear: distinguishing between normality and disorder is essential if we are to provide the appropriate help, but no clear line between the two exists in nature. She presents the argument that the widespread misunderstanding of this aspect of mental illness might actually be contributing to its apparent prevalence. Losing Our Minds provides both the clarity and the nuance that are so urgently needed. © Lucy Foulkes 2021 (P) Penguin Audio 2021

The Truth About Grace Audiobook

The Truth About Grace

Author: John F. Macarthur Narrator: Maurice England Release Date: April 2021

"Is the experience of God's grace in your life a thrilling thing? Just thinking about the fact that God, by His own sovereign plan, decided to be gracious to me is overwhelming. There is nothing greater than receiving grace upon grace." -John MacArthur Simple definitions can make grace feel like an obvious?even mundane?concept. Nothing could be further from the truth. Grace is the defining feature of the Christian faith. Once we understand how undeserving we are and how much favor we've been given, grace becomes shocking, thrilling, inspiring, and contagious. Best-selling author and pastor John MacArthur illuminates this profound concept with verse upon verse of Scripture. He also shows that misunderstandings about grace have led to some of the church's greatest problems, perhaps because grace is her most precious gift. The Truth About Series For decades, MacArthur has encouraged countless Christians to develop a deeper understanding of the Bible and a greater respect for God's truth. In The Truth About series, he now gathers his landmark teachings about core aspects of the Christian faith in one place. These powerful books are designed to give readers a focused experience that centers on God's character and how it applies to their daily walk of faith.
