The role divorce plays on emotional stability can be devastating for many men and women—anger, resentment, and a sense of loss often linger well beyond the life and death of the marriage. Since much of the stigma of the past has been lifted, many are discovering that it is easier to work through these negative emotions, turning this life-altering event into a positive one by creating a better, more fulfilling life after divorce. Whether a marriage was short-term or long-term, the pain felt by the individuals involved in either type is often quite similar after it dissolves. There are also key behaviors and emotions unique to both the individual leaving the relationship as well as the one being left. What both partners have in common, however, is a deep sense of loss. Life After Divorce, Revised & Updated guides readers through this confusion, offering tips on how to heal, secrets to dealing with both new and old relationships outside the marriage, how to communicate with children caught in the crossfire, and how to deal with the effects of financial instability in the home. In this updated and revised edition of the classic book Life After Divorce, bestselling author and therapist Sharon Wegscheider-Cruse outlines the most common issues associated with the dissolution of marriages—abuse, addiction, lack of communication, money, career goals, social interests, and cheating are just a few. Readers learn how to navigate the divorce process without the added cost of unwanted attorney fees, the difference between a collaborative and mediation divorce, and how to choose which path is right for them. Also provided are two new chapters, one focusing on adult children whose parents have chosen to divorce later in life and how they can effectively deal with the guilt associated with feeling the pressure to take sides, and the other explains how technology plays a role in the dissolution of marriages. Wegscheider-Cruse believes that each and every person has the ability to grow from the trauma of divorce, coming out a better, well-rounded individual. Peace, fulfillment, and greater self-esteem are possible after divorce, as is achieving a loving and lasting relationship with a new partner.

This collection of written pieces plots the work of an NHS psychotherapist, Jonathan Pedder, turning the science of psychiatry into human encounters. He had a career teaching and inspiring colleagues and students with psychoanalytic ways of thinking, encouraging and supporting them in the challenges of contemporary psychiatry. In his work he made the world of psychoanalysis accessible to non-analysts, and this book augments the textbook on psychotherapy which Pedder wrote with Dennis Brown. Pedder was a quiet visionary influential in offering a pathway for mental health workers from many disciplines to find their way to the psychoanalytic ideas that illuminate their patients/clients.'- Professor R.

Nicole Krauss, die Autorin des Welterfolges «Die Geschichte der Liebe», kehrt mit einem phantastischen Roman zurück: Ein vom Leben enttäuschter reicher New Yorker Anwalt und eine Schriftstellerin mit Eheproblemen machen sich auf die Suche nach dem Unbekannten in sich selbst und finden in der Wüste Israels überraschende Wege, über sich, ihre Träume und die Welt hinaus ins Unendliche zu schauen. Jules Epstein, 68, einst Beweger und politischer Macher mit übergroßem Ego, gerät nach der Scheidung von seiner langjährigen Frau aus dem Tritt. Zum Schrecken seiner Kinder verschenkt er den größten Teil seines Vermögens und möchte den Rest in eine Stiftung zum Gedenken an seine verstorbenen Eltern stecken. Am liebsten würde er den seit 2000 Jahren abgeholzten Mount Hebron in Israel aufforsten lassen. Schon im Flieger allerdings lernt er einen Rabbiner kennen, der ein Treffen sämtlicher lebender Abkömmlinge von König David plant und darauf besteht, Epstein gehöre zu dieser traditionsreichen dynastischen Linie. Epstein versucht, den versponnenen Rabbi loszuwerden, aber dann trifft er auf dessen verführerische Tochter, die in der Wüste Negev einen Film dreht ... Die junge Autorin Nicole aus Brooklyn lässt nach einer Epiphanie in der Küche, bei der sie sich nur noch als nutzloses Staubkorn im Multiversum sieht, ihre Familie zurück und flieht ins Hilton von Tel Aviv, wo sie seit ihrer Geburt jedes Jahr gewesen ist. Ein Ort der Ruhe, hofft sie, an dem sie sich wiederfinden kann. Doch ein emeritierter Literaturprofessor mit dubioser Mossad-Vergangenheit lauert ihr ständig auf und bedrängt sie, ein unvollendetes Drama fertigzuschreiben, das angeblich von Kafka stammt. Und während aus den Palästinensergebieten Raketen über den nächtlichen Himmel ziehen, landet Nicole, irregeleitet vom sinistren Professor, allein in einer Hütte in der Wüste Negev. Auf dem Schreibtisch nur zwei Dinge: eine alte Schreibmaschine und ein Bildband, betitelt «Die Wälder Israels». Mit sprühender Intelligenz und erzählerischer Raffinesse webt Nicole Krauss ein traumhaft metaphorisches Gespinst von einem Roman, frei nach Dante: «Ich fand auf unseres Lebensweges Mitte in eines Waldes Dunkel mich verschlagen, weil sich vom rechten Pfad verirrt die Schritte.»

Remember that although divorce is an ending, it is also a new beginning…Life does not always go as planned, and people are allowed to change. Sometimes that change shakes the very core of a relationship. It’s part of living. It’s how we grow. In a perfect world, and with a bit of luck, we get to change and grow old with our partners. That’s the dream. At least it was mine. But not all relationships work that way. And when they don’t, we have to realize that life is too short to spend it tearing each other apart and battling the same battles until death do we part.

Real people face real fears! Dr. Hicks inspires you to discover that God has designed a way to help you cope with the fears in your life.

Are the end times upon us? The signs may be all around us, visible to those who are looking: outbreaks of horrific diseases, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, monsoons, hurricanes, crime and lawlessness, a lack of compassion for others, fallen religions, corrupt governments, and the general degradation of society. In a world growing increasingly less safe and certain, one woman steps up to make a difference, one lost soul at a time. Cathy Burrows knows what it’s like to be alone in the world. At the age of five, she was orphaned. She was eventually adopted and raised by an older couple. Then, for the second time in her life, she loses her parents. After her adoptive parents pass away, Cathy decides to open her ranch to anyone looking for a safe haven. She creates a place far from the rampant lawlessness of the land and the diseases that are killing hundreds of thousands of people. Little does she know that, in so doing, her life will be transformed, bringing her more joy than she ever thought possible.

A woman's fulfillment lies in marriage and children. A career in business is merely a way to kill time until the right man comes along. Emjay Howe age thirty three had been hearing this all her life. As a girl she heard it from her mother and aunts and now she heard it from her contemporaries as well. Emjay Howe was still single at thirty three, but she had finished her B.A. degree and was well on her way to a career at Newtelco. The way she looked at it; the sky was the limit. She had set her sights on a possible V.P. sometime in the next fifteen years. Her mixed heritage, i.e. Cuban and Negro accounted for her fair skin, dark brown curly hair and light brown eyes. She was a striking figure; tall and slender and lithe from exercise and strict attention to food intake. Her feelings about her racial mixture was a constant source of unrest for her. Whenever she was thwarted in love she blamed her mixed blood. But she also felt her career goals acted as a shield against any serious personal involvement. As the story unfolds. Emjay is ending a five year relationship with Phil, an account executive, nineteen years her senior. Phil is white, divorced twice and says he will never marry again. Harry Howe, Emjay's brother is a closet alchoholic, who has a high paying job in city government. He and Emjay view their mixed background differently. He says it hasn't prevented him from having anything he really wanted. His skin color is darker than his sister's and he is married to Joan who is darker than he. They have no children. Joan has something of a possessive attitude towards Hal, their next door neighbor because he gave her a set of keys to his apartment so she could look out for his mail when he was out of town. She has tried but has not successfully been able to befriend her sister-in-law, Emjay. She feels Emjay looks down on her because she is less educated and has a darker skin color. Joan can not forgive Emjay these feelings. Hal Braeden is a white, anglo-saxon, self made millionaire who lives in St. Thomas, V.I. half a year and the other half in New York during the football season. Whatever time is left he travels extensively following his favorite team when they are out of town. He is married to Amanda, an attractive black woman ten years his junior. They have a son, Steven who is a miniature of his father. Amanda has a teen-age daughter from a previous relationship. Amanda after seven years with Hal has discovered a whole new world beyond her marriage. Hal introduced her to the world of business and she wants to try it on for size. In New York, Hal lives in the same apartment building as Harry; the same floor; four apartments down the hall. This coincidence accounts for the friendship between Harry and Hal. Hal's idea of an open marriage with freedom to date for both parties, when he is out of town has added a sense of non-caring and boredom to their union.

If you're in a troubled marriage, divorce might seem like a reasonable option. But in most cases, it's a calamity. Shows like Bravo's Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce and HBO's Divorce normalize the dissolution of marriage, making couples feel that divorce can be a happy new beginning. Celebrities suggest a norm that divorce is not only acceptable but advisable. Gwyneth Paltrow's "conscious uncoupling" makes divorce seem trendy and enlightened. Today, couples are even throwing "divorce parties"—complete with invitations and caterers! Enough, says psychologist Diane Medved. If you're hurtling down the road to divorce, the first thing to do is to put on the brakes. Don't let your spouse, your friends, or the "divorce industry" rush you into ending your marriage. Take a deep breath and read this book. Drawing on three decades of clinical and personal experience, Dr. Medved will show why you should save—and revitalize—your marriage. She expertly unmasks the threats to marriage, including hookup apps that promise non-committal sex, and legions of professionals who are financially invested in your divorce. She punctures one-by-one the arguments in favor of divorce, proving that "the good divorce" is a myth. Don't Divorce is the antidote to a pro-divorce culture, the tool that will empower you to revive a dying marriage and recover the happiness that seems out of reach.
