Get Naked by Saudia L. Twine Ph.D.

This product was recommended by Dr. Saudia L. Twine from Eros Meets Agape

The reason I suggest this book for your article is simply because in this world we all want love but most people struggle with how to find it, keep it and have a happy relationship. When women experience a breakup (women especially), it takes a toll on their self-esteem and their view of self. In my book I help people understand that these are automatic thoughts that are driven by prior experiences and can be changed. The book teaches those recovering from a breakup to heal and to learn to love again without fear, so they can move on to the next level in life, able to approach and conquer their next project or relationship with self confidence knowing and believing they are worthy and capable of love.

Turning Tragedy Into Triumph by Joyce Mikal-Flynn

This product was recommended by Joyce Mikal-Flyn from MetaHab

People experience injury, trauma, and sometimes a complete crisis. What do they do? Where do they go? How do they successfully manage the trauma or the crisis? How do families and loved ones help and cope? The current model of rehabilitation is insufficient. It ignores the potential for growth and fails to incorporate the survivor’s personal experience of trauma and inner strengths in planning his or her recovery. MetaHabilitation© recognizes each person’s inherent capacity to move forward, not in spite of the trauma but as a direct result of it. Individuals have the aptitude and inner force to move beyond basic survival and ultimately thrive. Life crises can be transformative. These unique and troubling experiences become opportunities to creatively restructure the self, find meaning, reduce suffering and allow each person to overcome and become master of his or her fate. Extensive research and interviews with ordinary individuals who recovered from major tragedies or trauma in extraordinary ways prompted the book. This work reveals insights and provides the basis of this concept and system of recovery. Troubling and unacceptable limitations in current rehabilitative models provided the rationale and motivation for a new treatment modality — a system that specifically recognizes and understands the uniqueness of each person’s potential, inner strength, and courage to guide them and families to achieve full and complete recovery-to MetaHabilitate. Stories of MetaHabilitated survivors illuminate stages, characteristics, determining factors, and facilitating conditions that allow people to see the possibilities and turn tragedy into triumph.
