Description : There are things you absolutely must say during a time of conflict with your partner and there are things that you totally should not. But what if your partner's conflict style is to say ... nothing at all? Whether the reason you are fighting is as commonplace as a missed date or as serious as cheating, silent treatment is a major obstacle to overcoming a relational struggle.Generally, people are silent when they are too angry and do not want to communicate until they have had time to recollect, deal with their emotions, and then discuss from a place of love. They also use silent processing as a passive, aggressive way of manipulating someone to accept conditions.Getting the silent treatment from a partner or friend is not fun; Concepcion explains that it is a form of manipulation or emotional coercion.In this study we will learn why people give us the silent treatment and what we can do to handle it!

Description : Ostracism is among the most powerful means of social influence. From schoolroom time-outs or the "silent treatment" from a family member or friend, to governmental acts of banishment or exile, ostracism is practiced in many contexts, by individuals and groups. This lucidly written book provides a comprehensive examination of this pervasive phenomenon, exploring the short- and long-term consequences for targets as well as the functions served for those who exclude or ignore. Within a cogent theoretical framework, an exemplary research program is presented that makes use of such diverse methods as laboratory experiments, surveys, narrative accounts, interviews, Internet-based research, brief role-plays, and week-long simulations. The resulting data shed new light on how ostracism affects the individual's coping responses, self-esteem, and sense of belonging and control. Informative and timely, this book will be received with interest by researchers, practitioners, and students in a wide range of psychological disciplines.

Description : When Grant Baker, an accomplished and respected newspaper photographer, suddenly stops talking one day, his wife embarks upon a journey to find out why. Pauline's quest prompts theories from authorities that include a theologian and a doctor, ranging from simple anger to God's will to an inexplicable physiological condition, in an exploration of themes that takes in faith, perception, guilt, identity, artistic endeavor, communication, universal light, and love. Along the way, the road hits some detours that, rather than answering the central question, raise even more. Why does a small-town cop arrest Grant? How does he land in a hospital in the aftermath of a violent storm? Why does an attractive newspaper art critic dump a glass of wine on his head in a local bar? How does an Edvard Munch painting find its way into an art gallery exhibit of photographs? What tale would Grant tell, if only he would - or could?

Description : NBA player Anthony Smith has had his share of trials and heartache. As he sits in a police station answering questions about his past, he reveals secrets, insecurities and events that led up to his possible demise. On the basketball court, his presence was unrivaled. He was handsome; an athletically-built heartthrob with the ego to match, even in high school. All the girls wanted him, but he only had eyes for one: Traci Benson. Unfortunately, she was the reason he was sitting in an interrogation room rehashing events that occurred years ago. How could someone so small, make such a huge impact on his life and change the way he viewed the world and how he loved? Get enthralled in this tale of love, seduction, heartbreak, and betrayal. The characters in this novel experience things we all did as teenagers, but did not have the hindsight to understand how these decisions and actions would affect us well into adulthood. Rico J writes a page turner that leaves the reader screaming at the end in shock and leaves characters in your mind well after you have closed the back cover.

Description : Hurtful criticism. Nasty 'jokes'. Angry outbursts for seemingly no reason. Verbal attacks towards your innocent comments. Stole-cold silent treatment. Manipulative actions to ensure you don't know if you're coming or going. Sound familiar? The phrase to summarize the above abhorrent treatment is narcissistic rage. The words 'narcissistic' and 'rage' are bad enough by themselves. When you merge them together, it becomes a force to be reckoned with; a volatile tornado that can emotionally destroy anything that dares enter its path. The term is as frightening and daunting as it sounds, and enduring the full force of narcissistic rage is enough to mentally and emotionally defeat just about anyone who gets in the way. This book will cover the following: - What narcissistic rage is - The types of narcissistic rage - What causes this rage to erupt - The silent treatment and how to handle it - Gaslighting and temper tantrums This book aims to give you a better understanding of narcissistic rage and the deadly silent treatments that comes alongside it. I endured an abusive, narcissistic relationship for a long time, and have used my experience to connect with other survivors to help them heal, too.

Description : Aversive behaviors have greater influence on social interactions than is generally acknowledged, determining personal satisfaction, interpersonal attraction, choice of partners, and the course of relationships. What motivates aversive behaviors? To what extent do they obtain desired outcomes? In what ways are they unnecessary and destructive? How do other people respond, emotionally and behaviorally? These are just a few of the many interesting questions addressed by the 16 respected researchers who contribute to Aversive Interpersonal Behaviors. Nine chapters give this heretofore neglected subject the attention it is due, probing a dark side of interpersonal relationships to understand both its destructive and adaptive nature.

Description : The Golden Window of Silence integrates the use of silence as spiritual discipline and its abusive use by systemic structures. Silence may be used as a lifegiving practice or in a destructive way at all levels of societal systems. One of the contentions of The Golden Window of Silence is that when one uses silence to listen to all levels, one may find the source of all non-violent communication. It is by this means that silence becomes one of the most powerful means of social justice. "Proceeds from book sales go to Sunbear Community Alliance, a Texas Non-Profit Corporation."

Description : Follow the incredible journey of one piece of paper—a copy of Psalm 23—as it travels around the world, linking lives and hearts with its simple but beautiful message. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures… Shortly before a tragic car accident, Kate McConnell wrote down the powerful words of Psalm 23 on a piece of paper for her wayward son. Just before she loses consciousness, Kate wonders if she’s done enough with her life and prays,“Please, let my life count.” Unbeknownst to Kate, her handwritten copy of Psalm 23 soon begins a remarkable journey around the world. From a lonely dry cleaning employee to a soldier wounded in Iraq, to a young Kurdish girl fleeing her country, to a Kenyan runner in the Rome Invitational Marathon, this humble message forever changes the lives of twelve very different people. Eventually, Kate’s paper makes it back to its starting place, and she discovers the unexpected ways that God changes lives, even through the smallest gestures. With beautiful prose evocative of master storyteller Andy Andrews’s The Butterfly Effect, this “intriguing…[and] inspiring read” (RT Book Reviews) will touch your heart and remind you of the ways God works through us to reach beyond what we can imagine.
