Invisible Men

Men's Inner Lives and the Consequences of Silence

Author: Michael Addis

Publisher: Macmillan

ISBN: 1429974060

Category: Psychology

Page: 304

View: 4766

Award-winning research psychologist Michael E. Addis identifies and provides answers surrounding the long-unspoken epidemic of silence and vulnerability in men Drawing on scientific research, as well as his own personal and clinical experience, award-winning research psychologist Michael E. Addis describes in this book an epidemic of personal, relational, and societal problems that are caused by the widespread invisibility of men's vulnerabilities. From increasing rates of suicide among men, to alcohol abuse, to violence and school shootings, his research reveals the continued cost of staying silent when emotional, physical, or spiritual pain enters men's lives. In the spirit of such bestsellers as William Pollack's Real Boys, Addis identifies the specific problems that result from men's silence and invisibility, what causes them, and how they can be changed. Addis provides readers with compelling stories of the causes and consequences of silence and invisibility in real men's lives. Invisible Men shows both male and female readers how they can break through the gauntlets that appear to protect men, but in reality cause severe harm to men, women, and families.

Amazon Hot New Release! Silence the Voice of Self Doubt While it’s easy to believe that the main barriers to being more productive, generating and developing ideas, and doing our best work are external (how many times have you vented to a coworker about “hitting a wall?”), the truth is that these frustrating blocks are most often in our own heads. What is the entity responsible for this? The Inner Critic. The Inner Critic is relentless, driving us toward perfectionism and fanning the flames of self doubt, self-sabotage, and self criticism while dousing the sparks of creative ideas before they have a chance to develop. It encourages rationalization to help us feel better about snuffing out these sparks and keeps us believing that it’s saving us from rejection, judgment, and failure. Worst of all, it makes us think all of this is our own idea. How do we break free of something that feels like it’s a natural part of who we are? Denise Jacobs, Speaker, Author and Chief Creativity Evangelist of The Creative Dose, who speaks at web conferences and consults with tech companies worldwide, maps a way out in her latest work, Banish Your Inner Critic. This book is your manual and toolkit to help you not only reclaim your creativity and productivity, but bump it up to extreme productivity, clearing a path for you to find your zone more often – and stay in it longer. Jacobs’ guidebook will provide instant relief and lasting insight, showing you how to: • Identify and quiet the voice of self-sabotage in your head • Master three power practices to transform how you relate to yourself and your creativity forever • Overcome the fear of not knowing enough or not being original enough • Free yourself from comparisons, overwhelm, and self-criticism • Transform your self-talk into a tool for success • Generate more ideas than ever before • Embrace your expertise and share your brilliance with the world Calling on neuroscience, psychology, mindfulness principles, and self-compassion research, deftly blended with personal storytelling, Jacobs presents approachable and immediately applicable techniques for putting your Inner Critic in its place. Banish Your Inner Critic will help you make your creative process more fluid and develop practices to cultivate innovation. When your next creative idea sparks into being, you will be ready to nurture it into a dazzling light of success. Banish your Inner Critic to start doing your best work, achieving excellence, and contributing meaningfully to the world!

Soulful Spirituality

Becoming Fully Alive and Deeply Human

Author: David G. Benner PhD

Publisher: Brazos Press

ISBN: 1441214364

Category: Religion

Page: 206

View: 2131

Spirituality has an indispensable role to play in the expression of our humanity. However, spiritual practices can sometimes make us less, not more, authentically human. We may be good Christians, but we aren't good human beings. How can we ensure that our spiritual journey is conducted in a way that allows us to become fully alive and deeply human? David Benner has spent thirty-five years integrating psychology and spirituality. Here he presents an expansive, psychologically informed understanding of spirituality, probing the contrasts between soulful and soulless spirituality, deep and shallow religion, and healthy and unhealthy relationships with God to affirm the vital role of human development in the spiritual journey. Benner then suggests soulful practices for cultivating the Christian spiritual life. This book will appeal to readers seeking depth and substance in their quest for authentic spirituality. It will also be a helpful resource for mental health professionals and spiritual directors. Reflection questions and exercises for individual or group use are included at the end of each chapter.d

Hal and Sidra Stone are the creators of "Voice Dialogue" process, a therapy that transforms the inner critic from crippling adversary to productive ally. The inner critic. It whispers, whines, and needles us into place. It checks our thoughts, controls our behavior, and inhibits action. It thinks it is protecting us from being disliked, hurt, or abandoned. Instead, the critical inner voice causes shame, anxiety, depression, exhaustion, and low-self-esteem. It acts as a powerful saboteur of our intimate relationships and is a major contributor to drug and alcohol abuse. Through examples and exercises, the Stones show us how to recognize the critic, how to avoid or minimize "critic attacks," and, most important, how the inner critic can become asn intelligent, perceptive, and supportive partner in life.
