  • Through our monthly newsletters (now in our 4th year!), we try to advance these goals.  We invite – actually relish – our readers’ contributions and comments and, with permission, publish them.
  • Classes, workshops and retreats for women.  It’s our experience that women – meeting together in structured groups – often find benefits of shared wisdom and insights to be a powerful catalyst in their individual quests (just as the Pages did – evident to readers of Eavesdropping).

Creating a New Holiday Drama

You can’t deny it – ‘tis the season!  Already.  As I was shopping for some Halloween goodies, I spotted Christmas wrapping paper and decorations – just waiting their turns to be moved front and center. Holidays are anticipated eagerly by some and dreaded just as passionately by others.

Eavesdropping:  As Real Women Talk About the Gifts and Challenges of Aging

How the greatest generation of women  embrace aging with an open heart, an open mind, and a renewed zest for living.

Kendra Brown, Ph.D asked a group of interesting women to meet with her to examine this perplexing question. Their meetings, enthusiastically continued for over three years, and became sources of support and empowerment for the members as they pondered topics of love and loss, obstacles and opportunities, surprises and sticky situations.  Dr. Brown, along with some help from her friends, wove these discussions into a fictional format and their book, Eavesdropping:  As Real Women Talk About the Gifts and Challenges of Aging, was published and is now in its second printing.  Readers can “listen” in on the lively discussions filled with honesty, wisdom and lots of laughter on a range of topics.

Erica’s Blog: A Tool Kit for Fixing What’s Not Working in Your Life

Cover_l

This is another book in the field of self-help for women! How could that possibly be worth writing or publishing? The shelves of bookstores and local libraries are full of titles. Amazon’s lists seem endless. Yet Erica’s Blog proudly proclaims that it’s different and it has a proven track record with individual readers, as a text for group therapy or as an addition to individual therapy. Readers criticize self-help books for “reading too much like textbooks” with “too many pages devoted to analyzing and defining problems.” They also complain they feel “talked down to” by authors who offer simplistic suggestions. Erica’s Blog avoids these pitfalls, presenting respected clinical approaches in a unique “fictionalized” format. Readers get acquainted with Erica through her blog and, as the book progresses, find themselves identifying with her. They can gain validation, comfort, and hopefully, even courage as they observe Erica struggling with—and profiting from—the various “tools” in her “tool kit.” The unique fictional package combining honesty and humor with serious and time-honored clinical tools makes this book a page-turner for the reader.
