Explaining the long-term fallout that can result from seemingly minor emotional and psychological injuries, Dr. Winch offers concrete, easy-to-use exercises backed up by hard cutting-edge science to aid in recovery. He uses relatable anecdotes about real patients he has treated over the years and often gives us a much needed dose of humor as well.
"Better than years of therapy"
The Addictive Brain is a fair and balanced investigation of addiction, backed by hard science and behavioral science. Most of us have probably seen the old antidrug commercial in which an actor compares your brain on drugs to an egg sizzling in a hot frying pan. That's a powerful image, but it doesn't tell us what actually happens when drugs enter your body and interact with neurochemical processes.
"Enlightening and absorbing."
In 1976, a mysterious "Inner Voice" spoke to Helen Schucman, dictating what would come to be known as A Course in Miracles - a spiritual classic that would go on to sell over two million copies and influence countless people worldwide. Those who study this 1,333-page course can struggle for years to progress through its resonant but often difficult-to-comprehend truths.
"Live YOUR Life with Intention and Purpose"

"An excellent introduction to various religions"
Dr. Amador's research on poor insight was inspired by his attempts to help his brother Henry, who developed schizophrenia, accept treatment. Like tens of millions of others diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, Henry did not believe he was ill.
"lots if heart"

"Science Based Courtship"
Why are more American adolescent girls prey to depression, eating disorders, addictions, and suicide attempts than ever before? According to Dr. Mary Pipher, a clinical psychologist who has treated girls for more than 20 years, we live in a look-obsessed, media saturated, "girl-poisoning" culture. Despite the advances of feminism, escalating levels of sexism and violence - from undervalued intelligence to sexual harassment in elementary school - cause girls to stifle their creative spirit an natural impulses, which, ultimately, destroys their self-esteem. Yet girls often blame themselves or their families for this "problem with no name" instead of looking at the world around them as the culprit.In this insightful production of Reviving Ophelia, for the first time listeners will hear the personal and painfully honest voices of girls on the front lines of adolescence. By laying bare their harsh day-to-day reality, Reviving Ophelia sounds an alarm identifying these problems, and issues a call to arms to deal with them. And with compassion, Dr. Pipher offers parents compassion, strength, and realistic strategies with which to revive these present-day Ophelias' lost sense of self.

"Serious FEX agents only"
Jerry and Diane show us how to look at every relationship as if there were only two emotions: love and fear. Fear, whose motto is "seek, but never find," is a product of our ego - our negative mind that views life as a constant battle in which we must defend ourselves, pass judgments and condemn. Love, the absence of fear and its accompanying guilt, is a beautiful light symbolizing our connection to a Higher Power.
"Enjoyed this audio"
Love is where there is no fear. Fear is where there is no love. In our age of anxieties, most of us live by complex expectations about what we should achieve, how we should act, and how others should treat us. As a result, we are victimized by guilt and fear - guilt because our standards haven't been met in the past, fear that they won't be met in the future. Inevitable, these negative emotions wreak havoc on our personal relationships, self-esteem, and peace of mind.
"A bit of interesting stuff.....Terrible audio qual"

"For the privileged only"
Humans are excellent liars. We don't like to think of ourselves as capable of lying; it hurts us too much to admit. So we lie to ourselves about that, too. As a clinical psychologist, I am regularly confronted with the brutal truth that we all lie. I am not talking about deliberate, bold-faced lying. No, this type of dishonesty is far harder to detect and admit. It is the kind of lying that comes from not being psychologically strong enough to be honest with ourselves about who we are.

Can you name the ten commandments? That's all right...you're not alone. More people claim to live by the ten commandments than those who know what they are, let alone what they mean.
