How growing in self-awareness deepens relationships From their years of counseling individuals, couples, and families, George Faller and Heather Wright show how to repair conflict, move from disconnection to reconnection, and discover God's movement in our life and relationships. They call their model NAME IT (Notice, Acknowledge, Merge, Embrace, Integrate, and Thank). To heal a relationship, first we connect with our own hearts and stories, then understand the other person's position, and finally merge those two truths (or versions of what is happening), giving birth to a new connection. By telling their own stories and those of clients they have cared for, Faller and Wright encourage those who feel disconnected not to despair in the midst of their trials but to find faith and a community to help them survive and grow. They show readers that rather than letting painful relationships leave them feeling alone and despairing, they can find hope in a deepened self-awareness that leads to richer relationships and spiritual vitality. Whether readers hope to experience the magical glow of romance, the joy of parenting, the satisfaction of community life, or a loving view of God, the NAME IT model will help them transform all their relationships.

“If you’ve never read it, read it now.”—Arianna Huffington, O, The Oprah Magazine Landmark, groundbreaking, classic—these adjectives barely do justice to the pioneering vision and lasting impact of The Feminine Mystique. Published in 1963, it gave a pitch-perfect description of “the problem that has no name”: the insidious beliefs and institutions that undermined women’s confidence in their intellectual capabilities and kept them in the home. Writing in a time when the average woman first married in her teens and 60 percent of women students dropped out of college to marry, Betty Friedan captured the frustrations and thwarted ambitions of a generation and showed women how they could reclaim their lives. Part social chronicle, part manifesto, The Feminine Mystique is filled with fascinating anecdotes and interviews as well as insights that continue to inspire. This 50th–anniversary edition features an afterword by best-selling author Anna Quindlen as well as a new introduction by Gail Collins.

Las neurociencias han descubierto que la práctica de mindfulness favorece la disminución de la ansiedad y el estrés e incrementa la concentración. Los padres pueden mejorar la comunicación en el hogar, reducir la conflictividad y contribuir al bienestar. Lo mismo sucede en las aulas o los consultorios. Vivimos acelerados, ansiosos por el futuro o emocionalmente cargados por asuntos del pasado, y el estrés o la insatisfacción nos invaden. Pero con solo prestar atención, ya activamos de forma natural los recursos que nos permiten mejorar nuestra calidad de vida. Esto nos posibilita despegarnos de nuestros condicionamientos para observarnos y registrarnos, o para captar a un hijo, un alumno o un paciente tal como son. Estar atentos siempre es cuidar. Integrando el cuerpo y la mente, mindfulness nos entrena en la atención, momento a momento, amorosamente y con curiosidad. Ayuda a que padres, educadores, profesionales de la salud, niños y jóvenes aumenten su capacidad de estar más despejados y conectados. Basada en su experiencia como terapeuta y entrenadora en mindfulness, Marina Lisenberg ofrece en este libro recursos para lidiar con el estrés y el sufrimiento innecesarios. Para que tanto los adultos como los niños y los jóvenes descubran los beneficios de la práctica de la atención plena y puedan elegir libremente la forma de darle sentido y plenitud a su vida.
