Mary Pipher's groundbreaking investigation of America's "girl-poisoning culture", Reviving Ophelia, has sold nearly two million copies and established its author as one of the nation's foremost authorities on family issues. In Letters to a Young Therapist, Dr. Pipher shares what she has learned in 30 years as a therapist, helping warring families, alienated adolescents, and harried professionals restore peace and beauty to their lives. Letters to a Young Therapist gives voice to her practice with an exhilarating mix of storytelling and sharp-eyed observation. And while her letters are addressed to an imagined young therapist, every one of us can take something away from them. Long before "positive psychology" became a buzzword, Dr. Pipher practiced a refreshingly inventive therapy - fiercely optimistic, free of dogma or psychobabble, and laced with generous warmth and practical common sense. But not until now has this gifted healer described her unique perspective on how therapy can help us revitalize our emotional landscape in an increasingly stressful world. Whether she's recommending daily swims for a sluggish teenager, encouraging a timid husband to become bolder, or simply bearing witness to a bereaved parent's sorrow, Dr. Pipher's compassion and insight shine in every minute of this thoughtful and engaging book. 1.

Packed with fascinating data that paints a provocative picture of the new rich. In Fortunes of Change, David Callahan contends that something big is happening among the rich in America: they're drifting to the left. When Callahan set out to write a book on the new upper class, he expected to profile a greedy and reactionary elite - the robber barons of a second Gilded Age. Instead, he discovered something else. While many of the rich still back a GOP that stands against taxes and regulation, liberalism is spreading fast among the wealthy. In Fortunes of Change, we meet an upper class increasingly filled with super-educated professionals and entrepreneurs who work in "knowledge" industries and live in the bluest parts of America. This cosmopolitan elite takes for granted such key liberal ideas as multiculturalism and active government, and have ever less in common with an extremist GOP based in small-town America and dominated by Tea Party activists and the likes of Sarah Palin. Fortunes of Change explores: Why some of America's wealthiest people backed Barack Obama's presidential bid and are pouring record sums into the Democratic Party and liberal organizations, even though they stand to see their taxes go up How a few big donors have spent millions to create the modern gay rights movement and how environmental activists have tapped a river of new liberal cash Why Hollywood, rolling in new profits thanks to globalization, has more money than ever to back Democratic candidates and push politics to the left Why Silicon Valley is turning more liberal and how tech money - including Bill Gates's vast fortune - is funding a growing array of liberal groups and politicians How the upper class is likely to get more liberal as young heirs are inculcated with liberal ideas in America's most elite prep schools and universities David Callahan is a co-founder of the thi 1.

A brilliant young scholar's history of 175 years of teaching in America shows that teachers have always borne the brunt of shifting, often impossible expectations. In other nations, public schools are one thread in a quilt that includes free universal child care, health care, and job training. Here, schools are the whole cloth. Today we look around the world at countries like Finland and South Korea, whose students consistently outscore Americans on standardized tests, and wonder what we are doing wrong. Dana Goldstein first asks the often-forgotten question: "How did we get here?" She argues that we must take the historical perspective, understanding the political and cultural baggage that is tied to teaching, if we have any hope of positive change. In her lively, character-driven history of public teaching, Goldstein guides us through American education's many passages, including the feminization of teaching in the 1800s and the fateful growth of unions, and shows that the battles fought over nearly two centuries echo the very dilemmas we cope with today. Goldstein shows that recent innovations like Teach for America, merit pay, and teacher evaluation via student testing are actually as old as public schools themselves. Goldstein argues that long-festering ambivalence about teachers - are they civil servants or academic professionals? - and unrealistic expectations that the schools alone should compensate for poverty's ills have driven the most ambitious people from becoming teachers and sticking with it. In America's past, and in local innovations that promote the professionalization of the teaching corps, Goldstein finds answers to an age-old problem. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nan McNamara.

In his most powerful and provocative novel to date, master storyteller Irving Wallace turns his incomparable talents to the world of sex therapy. Erotically charged, compassionate, and suspenseful, The Celestial Bed explores the way people make love in postsexual-revolution America. Dr. Arnold Freeberg is a courageous, pioneering sex therapist whose dedication to his patients and the principles of his profession prompt him to step outside the law and utilize the most effective tool of all in combating sexual dysfunctions - sex surrogates. Although sex surrogates are highly trained and supervised professionals who guide, demonstrate, and teach people with low sexual self-esteem how to enjoy intimacy, according to the law in many states they are prostitutes. Driven out of Arizona, Dr. Freeberg establishes a new clinic in southern California with the help of his most experienced surrogate, beautiful young Gayle Miller, and a new male surrogate, movie-star-handsome Paul Brandon. But where Dr. Freeberg expected to be able to practice in peace, he encounters powerful adversaries - an ambitious district attorney, a power-hungry evangelist, a duplicitous newspaper reporter, and the violently jealous psychotic boyfriend of one of his most needy patients - who would tear down his life's work, humiliate his patients, and put him and his staff on trial for pandering and prostitution. In the riveting, swiftly-paced narrative style that made him one of America's most widely read authors, Irving Wallace takes the reader behind closed doors into the private treatment rooms where sex surrogates lead their patients through the therapeutic exercises designed to bring them to sexual fulfillment. Readers will find themselves drawn into a circle of extraordinary people dedicated to repairing the sexually wounded, and come to understand the sex therapist's essential piece of wisdom - good lovemaking is first loving yourself and then learning to share that lo 1.

But beneath the athleticism, smiles, sponsorship deals, and haul of gold medals was a dark secret: a story of sexual abuse and trauma that, when revealed, became one of the biggest scandals in the history of American sports. In early 2018, Larry Nassar, the former doctor for USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University, was sentenced to serve out the rest of his life in prison after pleading guilty to a variety of sex crimes. In a show of unparalleled force, more than 150 young women - from gold medalists to former Michigan State University athletes to old family friends - confronted the once beloved Nassar in court, sharing their pain and resolve. Many of them took legal, financial, and career risks to speak out. But these women’s stories also reveal a stranger, more far-reaching truth: that the institutions responsible for protecting them - from the United States Olympic Committee to local police departments - had known in some form about the abuse for years, and had not put an end to it. Twisted tells the harrowing story of these crimes and how Larry Nassar got away with them for as long as he did. New York Times best-selling author Mary Pilon and Carla Correa chronicle the scandal from its inception, tracking the institutions that Nassar hid behind, the athletic culture that he benefited from, and the women who eventually brought him to justice. In this Audible Original, you’ll hear directly from these people - including the voices of coaches, parents, industry leaders, and the survivors themselves - as they grapple with the truth about Nassar and describe what it took to bring him down.As we mention in Twisted, here are some resources for yourself or a loved one who may need information or confidential support. a href=https://www.childhelp.org/hotli 1.

Maureen F. Morrell and Ann Palmer are raising two very different children: Justin, a whirlwind of activity and mood swings, who is supervised in a residential farm community, and Eric, quiet and passive, who lives independently at college. The authors give an account of the striking similarities as well as the stark differences in their experiences of parenting children at opposite extremes of the autism spectrum. The two mothers speak openly about their children's diagnosis and early childhood through to adolescence, young adulthood and the day they leave home. They give a moving account of the challenges they faced and the surprising consolations they found along their sons' very different paths in life. Through their friendship and two decades of shared experiences of parenting an ASD child, each has gained a clear understanding of her own strengths and limitations, as well as those of her child. Parenting Across the Autism Spectrum offers a personal perspective and practical guidance for parents at the start of their journey with autism, especially those whose children are newly diagnosed. It also provides useful insights for professionals working with individuals across the autism spectrum and their families. The book was elected the 2007 Autism Society of America's Outstanding Literary Work of the Year.

Business leaders: how can you solve the seemingly intractable problem of millennial disengagement? One word: BestWork. (Ok, that's actually two words jammed together, but we own it!). Show millennial employees how to do their BestWork, work that's meaningful to them and also creates measurable value for their (your) organization, and they will lock into work like Legos. Your organization's productivity will soar. In How to Be a Millennial Whisperer, author Spencer Deering provides business leaders a fun and concise guide to doing just that. Readers will learn to understand their millennial employees in order to ramp their productivity at work. As Deering says, 'You, too, can be a Millennial Whisperer.' This book couldn't have come soon enough. Some pundits suggest the problem of millennial disengagement is overblown. They're wrong. Millennials' professional struggles are getting worse not better, and it's grown into the biggest managerial problem of our time. Deering leverages his unique dual-background of teaching and entrepreneurship to show business leaders the BestWork path. He unpacks the problem of millennial employee disengagement with dexterity and wit, offering new insights with proven solutions. The result: with Deering's approach, business leaders, managers, and companies have the capacity to (finally!) get their millennials highly productive for the long term. In the first part of the book - 'America, We Got a Problem' - Deering reviews sources for and growing trends of what's hindering young professionals. From grade school to grad school, America's 'most talented generation' has been well-educated but ill-prepared to enter the workforce. The outcome: 90% of high performing young professionals don't expect to be with the same employer in five years! Facts like these make us wince, but Deering's humor keeps it light when encountering the sore spots. Employee retention is only part one of the problem. If employees stay in their seats but remain adrift, productivity still suffers. Their ascension, however, can be launched once they determine self-direction. To get there, most require greater self-awareness of their talents and drivers at work - and where they can aim them - but they simply don't know how to do it. In the second part of the book - 'America, We Got a Solution' - Deering provides actionable advice on how to show them. Leaders can finally stop using HR Band-Aids or playing the 'Engaged Charade.' When you become a Millennial Whisperer your millennial employees will thank you for helping them overcome the biggest professional challenge they face. They'll start doing work that's personally rewarding and rewards their company too. Then their productivity skyrockets. Deering's solution may be simple, but it could require a culture change in your organization. Employees must be given the bandwidth to determine what crucial organizational challenges they were born to solve - and then solve them. This will create lasting value instead of a culture of promotion based on faulty foundations. Deering even provides helpful case studies from his company, Supurlativ, that's helped Millennials (and others) discover their BestWork. Millennials don't WANT to be disengaged. And business leaders yearn for more productivity. How To Be A Millennial Whisperer solves for both by helping build the sound foundation for a sustained commitment to excellent, meaningful and value-creating work.
