Unbound by Kasia Urbaniak Book Resume:
Electrifying lessons in power, influence and persuasion to equalise women in an unequal world, from former dominatrix and nun turned sought-after coach Kasia Urbaniak spent 17 years studying to become a Taoist nun. To foot the bill for her studies, she worked as a high-paid (and extremely successful) dominatrix in dungeons around New York City. What she learned in these two wildly different settings has turned into her life’s work. UNBOUND brings Urbaniak’s unique teachings for women on speaking power, persuading others and navigating conflict to a mainstream audience for the first time. Part polemic, part practical, it opens women’s eyes to why they frequently find it so difficult – personally, professionally and socially – to raise their voices, why they freeze in challenging circumstances and what they can do to change this. Too often women find themselves in the role of ‘sub’ when they need to be more ‘dom’ – in short they are paralysed by their Good Girl Syndrome and a deep-seated need to please everyone and anyone except themselves. UNBOUND shows women how to cut through layers of self-censoring and self-doubt to direct and command attention so they can express – and get – what they really think, feel, need and want.
Difficult Conversations Just for Women by Sofia Santiago Mba,Susan Harrison Book Resume:
Every woman intuitively knows that the strategies recommended for men won't work for women. Men will be called leaders and women who do the same things will be called "bossy." If she says "I feel" she may be considered hormonal. People respond negatively to assertive women, whereas assertive men are admired. And when women speak out to defend their turf they're seen as "control freaks," while men, acting the same way, are seen as highly committed. Those and many more are the reasons why women avoid confrontation at all costs, make fewer requests for themselves than men, and end up not getting what they want or deserve. This book explains why traditional strategies designed with men in mind need to be adapted, and most importantly, how. This book, written by a women-only team just for women is based on ground-breaking research. Presented in a lively and entertaining style, it gives women the tools they need to handle difficult conversations and more. Did you know that compared to men women tend to self-criticize more, apologize more, and get interrupted more? Did you know that a woman's ethnicity influences the way she communicates and even the way she is perceived? Did you know that gender, personality, and cultural differences call for different strategies when it comes to dealing with difficult conversations? Sofia Santiago and Dr. Susan Harrison understand these and want to help women to conquer the hurdles that are unique to women, in the workplace and at home. When it comes to difficult conversations, women struggle to find the right balance between aggressive (a "witch") and passive (a doormat). Women want to be perceived as competent and to be liked, but sometimes the sweet point in the middle is hard to find. That's why women needed a book like this, but it wasn't available until now. Dealing with Difficult Conversations Just for Women shares cutting-edge studies and illustrative stories. Whether they make you smile or make you frown, they will certainly make you think. Learn specific techniques and wording to feel confident and assertive before, during, and after confronting a face-to-face difficult conversation.

A Guide to Effective Communication for Conflict Resolution by Alan Sharland Book Resume:
A Guide to Effective Communication for Conflict Resolution enables the reader, first of all, to just notice their present approach to communication. It introduces 9 Principles of Effective Communication, explains them through examples and then encourages the reader to practise the Principles in their own communication. In essence the Principles are simple, but they are personally challenging because they cause us to reassess what may be common practices in our everyday communication. It is important to notice these common practices in ourselves and others first of all, to see how prevalent and unconscious they are. Once we have become more conscious or 'mindful' about our communication we can apply the Principles to our day-to-day interactions and see the difference in others' responses to us, as well as in our own contributions to communication. We then see how practising the Principles can lead to a greater sense of connection and more creative responses to the inevitable conflicts we experience with others.Alan Sharland has been a Mediator since 1994, starting as a volunteer Mediator for Camden Mediation Service in London, UK. Prior to this he was a Teacher of Mathematics in a Secondary School in Camden. His involvement in mediation arose from trying to understand more about conflict as a result of a pupil from the school he worked in being murdered by a group of youths. Many of his pupils had been involved in violence either as victims or perpetrators and sometimes both. Working with people involved in destructive conflicts in his role as a Mediator enabled Alan to recognise common behaviours and approaches that typify ineffective responses to conflict. Mediation seeks to enable more effective responses to be created by those involved in a dispute, complaint or other difficulty. Observing how participants in the mediation process moved on to create more effective ways forward for themselves gave the material for the content in this book and evolved into the Principles that inform how Alan practises as a Mediator and Conflict Coach and how he trains others to be Mediators and Conflict Coaches.
A Clinical Guide to the Treatment of the Human Stress Response by George S. Everly Jr. Book Resume:
In 1981, Plenum Press published a text entitled The Nature and Treatment of the Stress Response by Robert Rosenfeld, M. D. , and me. That text attempted to do what no other text from a major publisher had previously attempted, that is, to create a clinically practical guide for the treatment of excessive stress and its arousal-related syndromes-this to be captured between the same covers in combination with a detailed, clinically relevant pedagogy on the neurological and endocrinological foundations of the stress re sponse itself. That volume has enjoyed considerable success having found markets among practicing professionals and clinical students as well. The fields of psychosomatic medicine, health psychology, behavioral medicine, and applied stress research have appreciably expanded their boundaries since the publication of the aforementioned volume. Although remarkably little of the clinical utility of that volume has been eroded with time, it was felt that an updated and more integrative clinical textbook needed to be offered to practicing clinicians and students within clinical rather than simply create a second edition of training programs. Therefore, was made to create a significantly revised the original volume, the decision and expanded volume that would cover many of the same topics as the original volume but would provide a primary emphasis on the treatment of excessive stress and that would employ an integrative phenomenological model to facilitate that end. This present volume entitled A Clinical Guide to the Treatment of the Human Stress Response is the result.
