Childhood Disrupted Book Excerpt:

"A groundbreaking book showing the link between Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and adult illnesses such as heart disease, autoimmune disease, and cancer--Childhood Disrupted also explains how to cope with these emotional traumas and even heal from them. Your biography becomes your biology. The emotional trauma we suffer as children not only shapes our emotional lives as adults, it also affects our physical health, longevity, and overall wellbeing. Scientists now know on a bio-chemical level exactly how parents' chronic fights, divorce, death in the family, being bullied or hazed, and growing up with a hypercritical, alcoholic, or mentally ill parent can leave permanent, physical "fingerprints" on our brains. When we as children encounter sudden or chronic adversity, excessive stress hormones cause powerful changes in the body, altering our body chemistry. The developing immune system and brain react to this chemical barrage by permanently resetting our stress response to "high," which in turn can have a devastating impact on our mental and physical health. Donna Jackson Nakazawa shares stories from people who have recognized and overcome their adverse experiences, shows why some children are more immune to stress than others, and explains why women are at particular risk. Groundbreaking in its research, inspiring in its clarity, Childhood Disrupted explains how you can reset your biology--and help your loved ones find ways to heal"--

Uncomfortable Book Excerpt:

We can run, but we cannot hide from ourselves—or our past. At age forty-three, the past that I thought I had so neatly put behind me collided with the present. I had spent many years trying to distance myself from the memories of my childhood. Little did I understand that my past was controlling every aspect of my life. All the years of depression, anxiety, and addictions could have been avoided if I had known what I understand today. That is what this book is all about—what I wish I had known. I had believed the lie that time heals all wounds. This idea of time and healing may be true of broken hearts, but with the trauma of child abuse, this understanding could not be further from the truth. Our future can be full of joy and happiness in the wake of abuse, but only once we learn how to face our past. I spent over twenty years hiding from my past in church, hoping that God would somehow make it all go away. In many ways my life was enriched, but in many other ways, I was worse off than when I started. In this book, I explore why so many of us seem to be languishing in church when the opposite should be true. The truth is that God loves us way too much to allow us to run away from what He knows can become our better qualities. I hope you will join me as I share my past of abuse, what I have experienced along my journey, my ideas about God and who He has become in my life, and what I have learned about healing and recovery.

The Enlightened Marriage Book Excerpt:

Love and marriage are two of the greatest gifts life has to offer, yet too many marriages fail because couples don’t fully understand the five stages of relationships. Because most of us have had hurtful experiences in past relationships, often going back to childhood, we develop an inaccurate love map that causes us to get off track when the stresses of life increase. For more than 40 years, Jed Diamond has been helping couples repair even the most damaged relationships and reweave the broken strands of marriage. In The Enlightened Marriage, Dr. Diamond will help you: Get through Stage Three—Disillusionment without losing your love. Understand that when your partner says, “I love you, but I’m not in love with you anymore,” it is not the end, but the beginning of Stage Four—Real Lasting Love. Learn why healing childhood wounds is the greatest gift of love you can give and receive from your partner. Recognize and address the mid-life stresses of “manopause,” irritable male syndrome, and male-type depression. Follow your calling in Stage Five to make a real difference in the world.

Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Health and Aging Book Excerpt:

This text addresses the specific lack of clinical educational support for transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) individuals as they age. Chapters are written by multidisciplinary healthcare experts who present topical discussions in five critical areas: essential foundational information needed to understand the life experience of older TGNC people; mental and behavioral health issues; social service considerations; specific concerns for nurses; and unique long-term medical concerns for providers. In addition, special attention is placed on providing care for TGNC veteran populations, including strategies to access social services and Social Security, and developing support networks. Transgender Health and Aging is an excellent resource for clinical and research professionals from a variety of medical disciplines, including geriatricians, primary care physicians, psychiatrists, public health officials, social workers, nurses as well as nonprofessional audiences interested in transgender healthcare in older adults.
