Resilience Builder Program for Children and Adolescents: Enhancing Social Competence and Self-Regulation Lowest new price: $49.99
Lowest used price: $76.97
List price: $49.99
Author: Dr. Mary Karapetian Alvord

This cognitive-behavioral group approach is designed to help students bounce back from and deal with the hardships, difficulties, and challenges in their lives. Participants learn to focus on what they do well and develop protective factors that promote resilience. Fun-to-do group sessions address the social/interpersonal aspects of growing up. The sessions are designed to increase confidence, self-esteem, self-control, and the use of coping strategies to deal with issues such as fitting-in and finding academic and social success. Specific resilience, leadership, and social competence skills are emphasized each week, using discussion, role-plays, or other age-appropriate techniques. Topics covered include being proactive, personal space awareness, problem solving, anger/anxiety management, self-regulation, friendship skills, starting and maintaining conversations, and understanding the impact of one's behavior on others. Relaxation and self-regulation techniques help group members increase awareness of thoughts, body, and emotions through calm breathing, visualization, progressive muscle relaxation, or yoga. Homework assignments and community field trips are utilized to reinforce the positive gains seen in the group setting and expand them for use in the world outside of group. Through the included parent letters, parents are given information about the specific skill being addressed; ideas to encourage and foster development; and recommendations for additional readings.

Understanding the Borderline Mother: Helping Her Children Transcend the Intense, Unpredictable, and Volatile Relationship

Understanding the Borderline Mother: Helping Her Children Transcend the Intense, Unpredictable, and Volatile Relationship Lowest new price: $42.07
Lowest used price: $32.95
List price: $61.00
Author: Christine Ann Lawson
Brand: imusti

The first love in our lives is our mother. Recognizing her face, her voice, the meaning of her moods, and her facial expressions is crucial to survival. Dr. Christine Ann Lawson vividly describes how mothers who suffer from borderline personality disorder produce children who may flounder in life even as adults, futilely struggling to reach the safety of a parental harbor, unable to recognize that their borderline parent lacks a pier, or even a discernible shore.

Four character profiles describe different symptom clusters that include the waif mother, the hermit mother, the queen mother, and the witch. Children of borderlines are at risk for developing this complex and devastating personality disorder themselves. Dr. Lawson's recommendations for prevention include empathic understanding of the borderline mother and early intervention with her children to ground them in reality and counteract the often dangerous effects of living with a "make-believe" mother.

Some readers may recognize their mothers as well as themselves in this book. They will also find specific suggestions for creating healthier relationships. Addressing the adult children of borderlines and the therapists who work with them, Dr. Lawson shows how to care for the waif without rescuing her, to attend to the hermit without feeding her fear, to love the queen without becoming her subject, and to live with the witch without becoming her victim.

List price: $36.00
Author: Richard C. Schwartz

Applying family systems concepts to the intrapsychic realm, the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model proposes that individuals' subpersonalities interact and change in many of the same ways as do families and other human groups. Seasoned practitioner Richard C. Schwartz illuminates how parts of a person can form paralyzing inner alliances resembling the destructive coalitions found in dysfunctional families, and provides straightforward guidelines for incorporating the IFS model into treatment. A valuable text and clinical resource, the book demonstrates in step-by-step detail how therapists can help individuals, couples, and families tap core resources, bring balance and harmony to their subpersonalities, and feel more integrated, confident, and alive.

A First-Rate Madness: Uncovering the Links Between Leadership and Mental Illness

A First-Rate Madness: Uncovering the Links Between Leadership and Mental Illness Lowest new price: $8.99
Lowest used price: $3.42
List price: $18.00
Author: Nassir Ghaemi
Brand: Penguin Books

This New York Times bestseller is a myth-shattering exploration of the powerful connections between mental illness and leadership. Historians have long puzzled over the apparent mental instability of great and terrible leaders alike: Napoleon, Lincoln, Churchill, Hitler, and others. In A First-Rate Madness, Nassir Ghaemi, director of the Mood Disorders Programme at Tufts Medical Center, offers and sets forth a controversial, compelling thesis: the very qualities that mark those with mood disorders also make for the best leaders in times of crisis. From the importance of Lincoln's "depressive realism" to the lacklustre leadership of exceedingly sane men as Neville Chamberlain, A First-Rate Madness overturns many of our most cherished perceptions about greatness and the mind.

Creativity: Flow and the Psychology of Discovery and Invention

Creativity: Flow and the Psychology of Discovery and Invention Lowest new price: $9.63
Lowest used price: $4.99
List price: $16.99
Author: Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Brand: Harper Perennial

The classic study of the creative process from the bestselling author of Flow

Creativity is about capturing those moments that make life worth living. Legendary psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (“The leading researcher into ‘flow states.’”  — Newsweek) reveals what leads to these moments—be it the excitement of the artist at the easel or the scientist in the lab—so that this knowledge can be used to enrich people's lives. Drawing on nearly one hundred interviews with exceptional people, from biologists and physicists, to politicians and business leaders, to poets and artists, as well as his thirty years of research on the subject, Csikszentmihalyi uses his famous flow theory to explore the creative process. He discusses such ideas as why creative individuals are often seen as selfish and arrogant, and why the "tortured genius" is largely a myth. Most important, he explains why creativity needs to be cultivated and is necessary for the future of our country, if not the world.

Just think if you have a go-to book that would help solve your toughest challenges when working with troubled teens. Jean Eich, PsyD, was searching for such a resource and it didn't exist....
"I didn't have and couldn't find a comprehensive, practical source of information for doing DBT with teenagers. And it needed to be something that spoke to therapists, parents and the adolescents as all are involved for successful treatment. I wanted a source of information that would include worksheets on DBT written for teenagers and n a way that appeals to them. I also wanted information about how to practically apply DBT with parents and a source of information that I could point parents to. Plus - it needed to include something for the professionals to implement DBT, and work with these distinct audiences, as they are related. Not finding what I needed - I wrote one, including all the information I have learned and applied in my own practice."
Introducing - a complete skills training manual for DBT with adolescents, focused on practical application for teens, parents and therapists, all in one comprehensive manual.

Part One covers DBT for teens with comprehensive and age-relevant skills explanations, examples and applied worksheets. Eich makes the skills real for teens with exercises that get them practicing new behaviors in real-life situations. Includes teaching pages for all four DBT skills training modules.
Part Two is a dedicated focus to parents with pertinent information on DBT, parenting and common teenage developmental issues, as well as, skills written to get parents using them individually, in connection with their child(ren), and as a part of the family system. This section not only emphasizes that DBT skills can be used for anybody and everybody, but also that parents need to be active and involved for any effective change process.
Part Three is crafted for therapists, with practical strategies on how to conduct DBT programming, tips to navigate dialectical dilemmas with adolescent developmental tasks and behaviors, and advice to balance therapy with parental involvement. Part Three also contains suggestions to teach the skills in active and experiential ways along with helpful sample forms, handouts and worksheets.
