Happiness is a loaded term that means different things to different people. To some, it might mean life satisfaction, to others, a fleeting moment of joy. Rather than seeking to be happy, Oliver James encourages us to cultivate our emotional health. Outlining the five elements of good emotional health - insightfulness, a strong sense of self, fluid relationships, authenticity and playfulness in our approach to life - he offers strategies for optimizing each characteristic to live more fulfilling lives. Helping us to understand the impact our emotional baggage has on our daily interactions, he reveals how to overcome unhelpful patterns and become more self-aware - revitalizing our approach to life. One in the new series of books from The School of Life, launched January 2014: How to Age by Anne Karpf How to Develop Emotional Health by Oliver James How to Be Alone by Sara Maitland How to Deal with Adversity by Christopher Hamilton How to Think About Exercise by Damon Young How to Connect with Nature by Tristan Gooley

There is no excuse for not teaching preventive, healthy coping strategies to prepare kids for their teenage years. -- Ronald R. Brill In his innovative book, Emotional Honesty & Self-Acceptance, Ronald Brill, a former university professor and health educator, argues that youth can learn how to self-manage upsetting and stressful experiences. This work explains the relationship between recognizing and dealing with emotional pain, which is essential to avoid harmful behavior toward ones self and others. Since the book was published in 2000 he continues to research and develop training programs for educators, including advising schools and student services professionals so they can more effectively help students learn and practice brain-based coping skills to reduce thigh risk emotional stress. This book contains guiding principles used in classroom programs he introduced to over 700 4th to 6th grade elementary students from 2002 to 2008. His virtual classroom website, www.copingskills4kids.net, helps schools, parents and counselors guide children in the use of healthy and safe coping skills. The book and website are designed to enable recovery from everyday emotional pain caused by loss, rejection, betrayal and humiliation. He refers to these as universal, core Emotionally Wounding Experiences. Like physical wounds, emotional ones can also be infected if left unattended or ignored. His classroom programs prove that by age of nine, students can learn these lessons to begin preparing for the turbulent teenage years. Violence prevention is an important benefit of developing emotional resilience and self-acceptance. The authors commitment to brain-based coping skills learning is now shared by tens of thousands of individuals and institutions around the world seeking new ways to help youth avoid harming others for the emotionally wounds they may otherwise have not learned to heal. The 300-page book uses analysis of school shooting incidents to advocate new strategies schools and parents can use to boost kids coping confidence needed to more easily get over inevitable emotionally painful and stressful experiences. It is written for mature teenagers and adults. This powerful tool provides evidence to those advocating coping skills education programs at home and school. This approach with todays youth can make them more responsible and self-accepting persons. It also helps them develop new capabilities to deal with the emotional challenges and changes during adolescence. Some Introductory Chapter Titles: What We Dont Know About Hurt Feelings Can Kill Us!

An extraordinary, powerful connection exists between feeling and feeding that, if damaged, may lead to one relying on food for emotional support, rather than seeking authentic happiness. This unique workbook takes on the seven emotions that plague problem eaters - guilt, shame, helplessness, anxiety, disappointment, confusion, and loneliness - and shows readers how to embrace and learn from their feelings. Written with honesty and humor, the book explains how to identify and label a specific emotion, the function of that emotion, and why the emotion drives food and eating problems. Each chapter has two sets of exercises: experiential exercises that relate to emotions and eating, and questionnaires that provoke thinking about and understanding feelings and their purpose. Supplemental pages help readers identify emotions and chart emotional development. The final part of the workbook focuses on strategies for disconnecting feeling from food, discovering emotional triggers, and using one's feelings to get what one wants out of life.

Think Right, Feel Right, finally a book that truly shows us how! In many lives, past wounds and circumstances have kept peace and happiness beyond reach. Now, with the help of Dr. Isett's innovative guide, we can reach them. This groundbreaking book is loaded with fresh thinking, solid answers, and the tools we need. Step-by step, the guide helps us build lasting emotional well-being and overcome problems with anxiety and worry, depression, addiction and self-esteem. We find out how to regulate our emotions, build esteem, and mindfully control our emotional health and well-being and, we come away with the ability to live a happier, healthier life. Life affords no guarantee that we learn how to feel well. If we weren't taught how to self-nurture or regulate our emotions effectively, happiness and emotional well-being will be scarce. We over rely on substitutes like spending, eating, working, or drugs and alcohol to prop up our sagging moods and emotions, increasing the risk of addiction. Or we may struggle along with low self-esteem, anxiety and depression and perhaps try to buffer these telltale symptoms with medication. Think Right feel Right puts us on the right path: it shows us how to feel well and stay feeling well. Offering cover-to-cover self-help, this practical guide delivers its powerful, behavior-changing message with compelling logic and clarity. The guide's straightforward style, helpful examples, chapter summaries and study guide questions make it easy to use. Empowering personal growth through its cutting-edge cognitive-behavioral approach, Think Right, Feel Right extends the opportunity for real help to many. Although the guide is not intended to be a substitute for professional help when indicated, it is an important and long-needed resource for those seeking to improve their emotional health and well-being as well as for mental health professionals, educators, parents and others promoting wellness.
