The Secret Lives of Adults: Your Seven Key Relationships - and How to Make Them Work
People have been sharing their life stories with psychologist Allison Keating for the past eighteen years, and the words she hears most often are `I feel overwhelmed,' followed by `I thought I'd have it figured out by now.' Adulthood is tough. As we try to divide ourselves between our partner, children, parents, siblings, friends and colleagues, it is no wonder we can feel overwhelmed, often neglecting the most important relationship of all - the one we have with ourselves. The Secret Lives of Adults invites you to audit and improve your seven key relationships, looking at how your past has influenced who you are today. ASK YOURSELF Is there a big gap between your public and private self? What are your expectations of others and of yourself? Do you understand why you react to certain comments? Do you repeat patterns of behaviour in your relationships? The Secret Lives of Adults has exercises and techniques to help you understand why you behave as you do in each part of your life, allowing you to unlock the secret to less stressful and more meaningful relationships. `Allison Keating gives us the tools to be in control of our own minds and actions, and most importantly, take back our lives.'

Body-to-Body Intimacy: Transformation Through Love, Sex, and Neurobiology
This book presents an integrative, growth-oriented approach to therapy with couples that demonstrates the dynamic interplay between partners' emotional issues and their sexual difficulties. It offers a model for relational and sexual enhancement that focuses as much on partners' present, nonverbal body-to-body communications as on their words. Dr. Stella Resnick draws on research from interpersonal neurobiology, sexology, positive psychology, and Gestalt therapy, and shares a rich assortment of therapy vignettes to demonstrate the transformative power of pleasure and how a focus on body-to-body intimacy can heal emotional wounds from the past and encourage greater presence, empathy, authenticity, playfulness, and sexual pleasure between intimate partners. The therapeutic process is explored in four related spectrums: the Problem-Transformation Spectrum, the Attachment-Sexuality Spectrum, the Pain-Pleasure Spectrum, and the Cognitive-Somatic-Experiential-Behavioral-Spectrum. Part I lays the theoretical foundation for the work. Part II examines the early attachment bond between parent and child and its effects on adult capacity for emotional closeness and sexual pleasure. Part III offers methods for resolving painful emotional issues underlying many sexual difficulties. Finally, Part IV describes the procedure for moving from a cognitive reframing of the problem to a somatic focus on the body and tracking present-moment emotional interactions to the repair of relational injuries that nurture transformational change. Also included is a series of process-oriented exercises and a handout that therapists can use in their own practice. Body-to-Body Intimacy will enable couples and sex therapists to expand their practices and enrich their clients' sexual and relational dynamics. This book also contains valuable information that will be appreciated by anyone interested in a greater understanding of a growth-oriented therapeutic process for couples and what can be achieved together by gaining a deeply loving and sexually fulfilling intimate love relationship.

Death and Chronic Illness in the Family: Bowen Family Systems Theory Perspectives
What does it mean to be `present and accounted for' when a family member is facing chronic illness or death? How does one define a self in relation to the ill or dying member and the family? Rooted in Murray Bowen's family systems theory, this edited volume provides conceptual ideas and applications useful to clinicians who work with families facing chronic illness or the death of a member. The text is divided into four parts: Part I provides a detailed overview of Bowen's theory perspectives on chronic illness and death and includes Murray Bowen's seminal essay Family Reaction to Death. In Parts II and III, chapter authors draw upon Bowen theory to intimately explore their families' reactions to and experiences with death and chronic illness. The final part uses case studies from contributors' clinical practices to aid therapists in using Bowen systems perspectives in their work with clients. The chapters in this volume provide a rich and broad range of clinical application and personal experience by professionals who have substantial knowledge of and training in Bowen theory. Death and Chronic Illness in the Family is an essential resource for those interested in understanding the impact of death and loss in their professional work and in their personal lives.

Love Now!: Untangling Relationships
We are not born knowing how to do relationships - we have to learn. We have to learn about ourselves and our own reactions so we can translate that self-knowledge into positive action in a relationship. The issues that arise in every relationship are not problems that must be avoided. They alert us that we have the opportunity to increase our understanding of ourselves and others. Never having been schooled in the world of emotions, it is easy to feel frightened and overwhelmed when we run into an experience we do not understand and do not know how to handle. We mistakenly think these learning opportunities are problems. We think something is wrong, either with our own Self or with the Other. Relationships are the school for our adult developmental task to deepen our knowledge about ourselves and about emotions. Without this knowledge, we feel desperate and hopeless, misinterpreting ignorance as failure. The information in Love Now! is so powerful that readers can immediately begin to step away from the caustic snare of angry accusations and raging arguments. Love Now! gets to the root of the issues in relationships. Real change requires that we not only know something, but that we become it. Love Now! guides the reader to deep internalization of concepts that can lead to transformation, not just behavioral change and adaptation.

Working with Developmental Anxieties in Couple and Family Psychotherapy: The Family Within
The family begins with the parental couple; it is they who create the family. This book explores the way in which the child or any member of the family can carry unresolved projections arising from the parents' families of origin: theirã family within, and the difficulties this internal family presents for the therapist. The model developed in this book explores psychoanalytically based ideas about infant development and applies them to the internal world of couples and families. It presents both a clear explanation of these theories as well as case histories that show how these ideas work in practice. The developmental model presented offers an original perspective on the wide range of problems that many couple and family therapists struggle with. These problems can be understood in the context of the family within, the way in which the family of origin dynamics have been internalised. This shared understanding between the couple and family and the therapist provides a path to greater maturity and therefore a greater capacity to cope with life's vicissitudes. Working with Developmental Anxieties in Couple and Family Psychotherapy presents both a clear theoretical framework for understanding the development of the couple and family, and a practical application for these ideas. Case studies bring the model to life through illustrating both the problems of the family or couple and the difficulties of the work. It will appeal to psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, couples and family therapists.
