How often have you seen a friend and been greeted with "How are you?" Almost always our automatic response is "Fine thank you" regardless of whether it's true. We proclaim in church services that "God is good all the time . . . All the time God is good," but there are often times when we feel that life is just unfair and ask God, "Why?" The uplifting songs and victorious testimonies of our church gatherings are frequently difficult to identify within the midst of the suffering and hardship of people's daily lives, yet there is all too often no room for our "not-OK" experiences in our Christian communities. This is especially true for pastors and leaders who are required to always be strong and OK all the time. But the songs of lament in the Psalms paint a very different picture of understanding life and how human beings express themselves to God. Dr Rico Villanueva uses these Scriptures to teach us that in the presence of God, there is room to be "not-OK" and that our negative experiences don't have to be ignored. This book challenges us to confront our struggles and questions instead of denying them. Most importantly, the author invites us to bring all of ourselves into the presence of God and the community of faith. For it is through our experiences and sharing them with God and his church that we grow in intimacy with God and our relationships with one another.

A cancer diagnosis is never welcome, but for Veronica Arnold it was a call to battle rather than a temptation to drown in despair. Her response was, “Bring it on!” She wanted to see what God would do to help her through this. It’s Okay to Be Me: A Journey to God’s Heart by Way of Cancer presents the very personal account of Veronica’s early years and the factors that contributed to her feelings of rejection. While not a victim of abusive, alcoholic, or drug-using parents—or even of abject poverty—indwelling sin twisted her experience, convincing her that she was terribly fl awed and unworthy. But God was at work in her life, calling out to her and holding her close even at her most rebellious times. It was when she was at her most vulnerable point, fearing a possible death sentence from cancer, that she finally got the message that she was infinitely valuable and eternally and unconditionally loved by the very Creator of the universe. Walk with her through the revelational process of finding her true worth. Discover the ways God prepared her for her most difficult journey and continually supported her through the stress of the challenging decisions, surgery, and recovery. It’s Okay to Be Me chronicles how she discovered, for the first time in sixty-five years, why it really was okay to be herself. “An amazing and inspirational life-changing account of a personal journey! ... Veronica has given a gift to others by sharing her story.” - Ashley Hood, medical/oncology social worker

This book describes research on the emotional communication between parents and children and its effect on the children's emotional development. Inspired by the work, and dedicated to the memory of Dr. Haim Ginott, it presents the results of initial exploratory work with meta-emotion--feelings about feelings. The initial study of meta-emotion generated some theory and made it possible to propose a research agenda. Clearly replication is necessary, and experiments are needed to test the path analytic models which have been developed from the authors' correlational data. The authors hope that other researchers will find these ideas interesting and stimulating, and will inspire investigation in this exciting new area of a family's emotional life.

Parenting can be such an overwhelming job that it’s easy to lose track of where you stand on some of the more controversial subjects at the playground (What if my kid likes to rough house—isn’t this ok as long as no one gets hurt? And what if my kid just doesn’t feel like sharing?). In this inspiring and enlightening book, Heather Shumaker describes her quest to nail down “the rules” to raising smart, sensitive, and self-sufficient kids. Drawing on her own experiences as the mother of two small children, as well as on the work of child psychologists, pediatricians, educators and so on, in this book Shumaker gets to the heart of the matter on a host of important questions. Hint: many of the rules aren’t what you think they are! The “rules” in this book focus on the toddler and preschool years—an important time for laying the foundation for competent and compassionate older kids and then adults. Here are a few of the rules: • It’s OK if it’s not hurting people or property • Bombs, guns and bad guys allowed. • Boys can wear tutus. • Pictures don’t have to be pretty. • Paint off the paper! • Sex ed starts in preschool • Kids don’t have to say “Sorry.” • Love your kid’s lies. IT’S OK NOT TO SHARE is an essential resource for any parent hoping to avoid PLAYDATEGATE (i.e. your child’s behavior in a social interaction with another child clearly doesn’t meet with another parent’s approval)!

The Thin Woman provides an in-depth discussion of anorexia nervosa from a feminist social psychological standpoint. Medicine, psychiatry and psychology have all presented us with particular ways of understanding eating disorders, yet the notion of 'anorexia' as a medical condition limits our understanding of anorexia and the extent to which we can explore it as a socially, discursively produced problem. Based on original research using historical and contemporary literature on anorexia nervosa, and a series of interviews with women diagnosed as anorexic, The Thin Woman offers new insights into the problem. It will prove useful both to those with an interest in eating disorders and gender, and to those interested in the new developments in feminist post-structuralist theory and discourse analytic research in psychology.
