Ostracised: A true story of sibling reconciliation through Facebook, 15 years after being ostracized by her family, for speaking out to protect her nephew from being abused. [Ellen Bothwick] on Amazon.com.
Lisa Hyaenidae's insight:
Book DescriptionPublication Date: May 28, 2011A true story of sibling reconciliation through Facebook, fifteen years after being Ostracised by her family, for speaking out to protect her nephew from being abused. Ellen read her first book when she was 36 years old! The book was ‘Toxic Parents’ by Susan Forward. To enable her to deal with the events of this story and write this book, she needed to face up to her previously concealed semi literacy. This is the true story of Ellen being thrown out of her family for making difficult decisions, involving both the Police and Social Services, to protect her infant nephew from being subjected to the same horrors that she faced as a child. Ellen delivers a powerful account of what her life was like including letters, emails and diary extracts, detailing this traumatic period when she was totally Ostracised by her entire family, the people you would expect to ‘have been there for her’. It covers a fifteen year period in her life in which she experienced absolute despair and sadness. She strongly and sensitively tells of the consequences for herself and those around her arising from speaking out. The story starts with Ellen, astonishingly, finding a picture of herself on her estranged brother’s Facebook page and her subsequent journey to reconciliation with him. This stark account of battling against adversity is uplifting and optimistic as despite these challenges in her life, Ellen is now happy and successful. Profile of Author Ellen Bothwick was born in 1958 in Stratford upon Avon. Despite leaving school with virtually no qualifications because of her dyslexia, she forged an early career in Sales and Marketing Management, travelling extensively throughout the UK and Europe, selling Capital Equipment to both the Private and Public sectors. During this time she became more and more interested in ‘Change Management’ and the impact of change on the motivation of individuals. In 1998 she started her second career when she established her own Training Company specialising in training people in Neuro Linguistic Programming. Ellen is now an experienced International Soft Skills Trainer of NLP and Motivational Public Speaker. She utilises a style of training which actively involves the collaboration of students to help them achieve maximum results and sustain life-changing behavior in both their professional and personal lives. Ellen has a very strong sense of fairness, equality and justice and believes passionately in NLP as a set of tools that can help people move on and progress with their work and lives. Ellen is married and lives in Worcestershire with her husband Russ and Spike the cat. Ellen can be contacted via www.Ostracised.me

Lisa Hyaenidae's insight:
Book DescriptionRelease Date: January 1, 1990

It is estimated that as many as 34 million people grew up in alcoholic homes. But what about the rest of us? What about families that had no alcoholism, but did have perfectionism, workaholism, compulsive overeating, intimacy problems, depression, problems in expressing feelings, plus all the other personality traits that can produce a family system much like an alcoholic one?

Countless millions of us struggle with these kinds of dysfunctions every day, and until very recently we struggled alone. Pulling together both theory and clinical practice, John and Linda Friel provide a readable explanation of what happened to us and how we can rectify it.

Incest: A New Perspective: Mary Hamer: 9780745624167: Amazon.com: Books

Incest: A New Perspective

~ Mary Hamer (author) More about this product
Price: $29.95
Incest: A New Perspective [Mary Hamer] on Amazon.com. *FREE* super saver shipping on qualifying offers. In this major new book, Mary Hamer offers a new perspective on incest, making a link with the scandal of sexual abuse on the part of priests.
Lisa Hyaenidae's insight:
Editorial ReviewsReview"Hamer's book plunges into the thicket of our scandals and blindness about incest, to tell us that abuse is the price paid by a society that insists on clear norms of masculinity and femininity. It is not possible to speak of incest, in other words, says Hamer, without addressing the entire social order. And this is what she does, in this clearly written, energetic, and powerful book." Antonia Lant, Department of Cinema Studies, New York University

 

"A personal journey of significance to us all. This account of the routine withdrawal of tenderness from close relationships will go against the grain of much formal cogitation. But it slides along the grain of an important kind of emotional knowledge. Agree with it or not, the effect is uncanny. Its echoes will reverberate a long time." Marilyn Strathern 

"A brave and original book. Mary Hamer's Incest combines autobiography, literary criticism and psychoanalysis to break down embedded formulae about love, masculinity and tenderness." Terri Apter, Newnham College, Cambridge

 From the Back Cover

 

In this major new book, Mary Hamer offers a new perspective on incest, making a link with the scandal of sexual abuse on the part of priests. She explores the contradiction that while the occurrence of incest is widespread, it is almost universally a taboo subject. Hamer’s novel and innovative approach removes the taboo from the discussion of incest, and places sexual abuse in the context of the whole social order.

Drawing on the work American psychotherapist Judith Herman, Hamer invites readers to focus on the neurological damage caused by traumatic experienced, arguing that it is overwhelming of one person by another by constitutes abuse, and this which causes the damages, not the fact of a close relationship. She revisits the real two-life cases of Father Porter from Massachusetts and Sappho Durrell, daughter of the British writer Lawrence Durrell, in order to demonstrate the inherent contradictions in official accounts of the subject, from genetics and anthropology to law. She also draws on the work of artists and filmmakers to explain the way film and literature have helped to preserve our understanding of abuse and its place in the world.

This book will appeal to all those who wish to think more clearly on this subject, including teachers of film and literature and those studying the sociology of family, psychology, anthropology and criminal justice.

Father's Touch, Second Edition

~ Donald D"Haene (author) More about this product
Price: $14.95
Father's Touch, Second Edition [Donald D'Haene, Donald D"Haene] on Amazon.com. *FREE* super saver shipping on qualifying offers. From author Donald D'Haene and his appearance on Oprah.
Lisa Hyaenidae's insight:
From the Inside FlapFather’s Touch is an intimate book. I use this term consciously and respectfully. The struggle to understand and achieve healthy intimacy (in all its forms) is central to a survivor’s recovery quest. As you read this book you will come to know and admire many facets of Donald D’Haene. You will meet Donald as an innocent–a boy victim. And you will accompany him on his heroic journey to being the victor he is today. Intimacy is evident throughout this book: It is found in the author’s generous invitation to share the experiences of a frightened, confused young boy, and in the immediacy of his terrifying flashbacks. Some parts of this narrative are particularly chilling, notably the author’s use of quotes from the father’s own writings. These offer us rare glimpses into the self-deluding, self-justifying, devious, selfish mind of a child abuser. The diary entries are hard to read, hard to stomach, and likely to elicit strong emotions in the reader. Their inclusion is further evidence of Donald D’Haene’s courage.

I Thought We'd Never Speak Again: The Road from Estrangement to Reconciliation [Laura Davis] on Amazon.com. *FREE* super saver shipping on qualifying offers.
Lisa Hyaenidae's insight:
Editorial ReviewsAmazon.com ReviewWe've all been advised to forgive and forget, but rarely has anyone suggested a way to reconcile without necessarily forgiving. I Thought We'd Never Speak Again does. It covers every sort of contention, from seemingly minor differences that can escalate over time to larger issues of abuse, neglect, and dysfunction.

Author Laura Davis (The Courage to Heal) once again comes from a very personal place in this book; she has slowly renewed relations with her mother's family after 10 years with no contact. As she interviews people and shares their stories, she uses the wisdom they've gained to illustrate numerous ways to reconcile--sometimes involving forgiveness and sometimes not. From the family who lost a member to a drunk driver or drive-by shooting to generations of kids on opposite sides of racial, religious, or political issues, the process of coming to peace is a lengthy one, marked by both pain and rewards.

Useful for adults who are dealing with personal issues or families trying to move beyond the emotional aftermath of 9/11, this loving and thoughtful book examines how we can all work together to achieve understanding. --Jill Lightner --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Losing My Religion: How I Lost My Faith Reporting on Religion in America and Found Unexpected Peace [William Lobdell] on Amazon.com. *FREE* super saver shipping on qualifying offers.
Lisa Hyaenidae's insight:
Editorial ReviewsFrom Publishers WeeklyA former religion reporter for the Los Angeles Times, Lobdell recounts in this plainly written memoir how he became a Protestant evangelical, nearly accepted Catholicism and, in the end, rejected faith altogether. Central to the arc of this memoir is the unfolding sexual abuse scandal in the Roman Catholic Church, which Lobdell covered in depth during his time as a religion reporter, beginning in 2000. Despairing of the role of priests and bishops in that scandal, he refashions his identity as a crusading reporter out to cleanse the church of corrupt leaders. But after finding that his investigative stories about faith healer Benny Hinn and televangelists Jan and Paul Crouch appear to make no difference on the reach of these ministries or the lives of their followers, he gives up on the beat and on religion generally. Lobdell subjects his faith to the rigors of rationalism. If Christians are no more ethical than atheists, why belong to a church? It's a curious utilitarian argument that sounds more like a rearview explanation than a revealing account of loss of faith. Still, the memoir's strength lies in the wrenching emotional toll exacted by the Catholic abuse scandal. If nothing else, it suggests reporters may have been victimized by the scandal, too. (Mar.)

Editorial ReviewsFrom the Back Cover

Make peace with yourself and reclaim your life with Mark Sichel's powerful ten-step healing program

"That's it. I've had it. I never want to see or hear from you again." Those words may have caused great anguish, or great relief, at the moment they were spoken--depending on whether you were the giver or the receiver of the powerful punch. But now you're left with the nagging despair of losing a family member. The pain can be overwhelming, but there is a way out. Through the help of Healing from Family Rifts, you can find peace again and recover from the isolation of family exile.

Author and licensed clinical social worker Mark Sichel knows what it's like to suffer a family exile: his parents cut off all communication with him years ago. Now he's applying the steps used during his own recovery to help you overcome the heartbreak of your family rift. Through his powerful and proven ten-step program, along with the stories of other embattled survivors of family wars, you will achieve real, permanent, inner reconciliation, regardless of the cause of the rift--whether divorce, marriage outside your race or religion, emotional abuse, objections to sexual orientation, addictions, or any other reason.

From dealing with the shock of the rift to building your second-chance family, from recognizing the signs of acute stress disorder to learning from successful families, Mark Sichel's ten steps to healing will help you achieve serenity and contentment by learning how to make peace with yourself first.
