✏Unbroken Brain Book Summary : A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER More people than ever before see themselves as addicted to, or recovering from, addiction, whether it be alcohol or drugs, prescription meds, sex, gambling, porn, or the internet. But despite the unprecedented attention, our understanding of addiction is trapped in unfounded 20th century ideas, addiction as a crime or as brain disease, and in equally outdated treatment. Challenging both the idea of the addict's "broken brain" and the notion of a simple "addictive personality," The New York Times Bestseller, Unbroken Brain, offers a radical and groundbreaking new perspective, arguing that addictions are learning disorders and shows how seeing the condition this way can untangle our current debates over treatment, prevention and policy. Like autistic traits, addictive behaviors fall on a spectrum -- and they can be a normal response to an extreme situation. By illustrating what addiction is, and is not, the book illustrates how timing, history, family, peers, culture and chemicals come together to create both illness and recovery- and why there is no "addictive personality" or single treatment that works for all. Combining Maia Szalavitz's personal story with a distillation of more than 25 years of science and research,Unbroken Brain provides a paradigm-shifting approach to thinking about addiction. Her writings on radical addiction therapies have been featured in The Washington Post, Vice Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times, in addition to multiple other publications. She has been interviewed about her book on many radio shows including Fresh Air with Terry Gross and The Brian Lehrer show.

The model is directed at assisting parents in developing the ability for mentalization, insightfulness, and reflective capacities linked to infantís development of attachment security.

✏Abandoned Book Summary : Born prematurely, and later diagnosed with a life-threatening childhood illness, Ms. De Pietro spent most of her early years in hospitals. Surviving several near death experiences had a lasting effect on her. It was there in the hospital at the child life center that she was first introduced to art. She knew from then on that she would dedicate her life to being an artist. After studying at the School of Visual Arts and later at the Paris American Academy, she went on to have a fruitful career as a painter. As time went on she realized that cloistering herself in her studio painting did not address her own suppressed emotions which had caused her to seek refuge there in the first place. Furthermore, it didn’t allow her to give back to others who were suffering. Taking a sabbatical from painting to study art therapy, Ms. De Pietro set out to confront her own complexes and in the process help those in need. She learned how to use the creative process to reach those who experienced trauma and abuse. She recognized that you cannot run and hide from past trauma because the past will come and find you. What is hidden in our shadow selves is what keeps us confined and doomed to repeat the patterns of abuse. It is only by confronting the truth of what happened in the past that helps us shed the shroud of secrecy that keeps us spellbound in shame and guilt. ”We all have stories. We all have had pain and suffering in our lives, some more than others. If we keep our stories locked up and hidden they will become a heavy burden, and cause us only more grief. We can learn from our past when we step back and take a long hard look, and realize that these traumatic experiences don’t define us. We learn more from our struggles and misfortunes than we do from our accomplishments. When we let go of our guilt, shame, fear and loneliness, we can make room for the good stuff, like joy, and love. Follow the stories and you will find the truth hidden in between the lines”.

✏God Are You Nice or Mean Book Summary : Through a journey of joys, tears, struggle, and hopelessness, Debra Delulio Jones found herself shaking her fist in the air and screaming, “God, are you nice or mean?” Debra and her husband, Alan, believed they were following God’s will when they adopted Dane from an orphanage in Romania in 1991. Scars of communism left their mark on this infant, and Debra searched for many years for answers for her troubled son. She found some answers, but what she didn’t expect to find was that her relationship with God was much like that of an orphaned child who didn’t really trust her adopted heavenly father. Dane didn’t know how to trust the love of his parents due to his early abandonment and attachment issues. In his confusion he would say, “Mommy, are you nice or mean?” As she learned ways to connect to her son, Debra realized a twenty year course in clinging to God paralleled her parenting journey. She came to understand that her doubts about God were rooted in fear and pain, just like her son’s maladaptive behaviors. As an adoptive mother in the role of healing parent, she gained insight into knowing God as her healer through lessons she learned in her relationship with Dane. In her transparent and humorous way, Debra shares how she went from living as a “spiritual orphan” to a trusting daughter in her daily walk with God.

Also included is a chapter on overcoming oneís own barriers to effective nursing in the difficult psychiatric environment. This important interdisciplinary clinical resource grew from a forum of Butler Hospital nurses who convened over a two-year period to identify and explore successful interventions used in the inpatient psychiatric acute care setting. The guide represents a collaboration between these health care professionals and their colleagues at the University of Rhode Island McLean Hospital, New York Presbyterian Hospital, and the Institute of Living.

✏The Goat Bridge Book Summary : "Brilliant. . . . The intricately layered narrative, moving back and forth in time and space, builds to a conclusion both bloody and subtle . . ." ---Chicago Tribune ". . . in his most far-reaching and scorchingly beautiful novel, [McNally] extends his acute insights into the workings of the mind to the traumas of a besieged city. . . . In Stephen, an artist with a conscience and a man who has lost what is most precious, McNally has created an unflinching witness to humankind's capacity for both evil and transcendent love. And every penetrating thought, harrowing predicament, vivid feeling, and powerfully evoked setting exerts a profound fascination in this lacerating and exquisite novel of crime and war, suffering and sacrifice, revelation and redemption." ---Booklist (starred review) "With a sensitive yet razor-sharp vision, T. M. McNally probes the deepest and most difficult aspects of life in that great century of warring, the Twentieth. The Goat Bridge is a novel of love, loss, death, conflicts of the heart as well as between men who would kill in the nameof ideology. This is a poignant, masterful work." ---Bradford Morrow, author of Ariel's Crossing " . . . at once an imaginative engagement with the war in Yugoslavia, and a moving story of human frailty, bewilderment, and grief. . . . The Goat Bridge is a magnificent novel." ---Christopher Merrill, author of Only the Nails Remain: Scenes from the Balkan Wars "The Goat Bridge finds [McNally] at new heights. It's fascinating, heartbreaking, illuminating, poetic, wrenching, and unflinching." ---Playback "An unusual love story, The Goat Bridge is an unforgettable story of loss and redemption built around some very powerful images. Richly layered and emotionally compelling, this haunting tale is not only deftly written but also features masterful characterization." ---Register-Pajaronian (Watsonville CA)
