To be human is to be in relationships. We can’t survive without them but it’s in relationships that we can so easily get unravelled. Some relationships just seem to do us in. Either we feel like we lose ourselves or feel burnt out from futile efforts to make things right for another. In our relationships we can experience the very best of ourselves and the very worst. The message of Growing Yourself Up is that you can’t separate understanding the individual from understanding relationships. All of life’s relationships are integral to increasing self-awareness and maturity. And it’s not necessarily the comfortable relationships that promote personal growth. In this 2nd edition of the bestselling book, Jenny examines how to help others without fostering dependency, and how to determine what kind of help you or others want from therapists. This is in response to the many lay and professional people who have found this book valuable personally and want to know how to help others grow. Drawing from Bowen family systems theory, the book takes you on a journey through each stage of life to see predictable patterns of relationships and to show how to use this knowledge to make purposeful adjustments in yourself; as well as lending a mature helping hand to others. The result is a sturdier self, sturdier relationships and a refreshing new way to view life’s challenges and opportunities.

Someone pushes your buttons . . . you feel rage . . . fear . . . sweaty palms . . . unbidden tears . . . you feel like a kid . . . We've all experienced moments when we lose control of a situation and ourselves. Now, in Growing Yourself Back Up, the first book to explain the idea of emotional regression to the general reader, bestselling author John Lee identifies the circumstances that cause these seemingly uncontrollable feelings and shows how they are directly tied to our experience as children. No adult, explains Lee, need ever experience the helpless feelings of childhood again. Here are his proven methods and visualization exercises, developed in his popular workshops, for recognizing, preventing, and diffusing regression in ourselves and others. He teaches, for example, that adults cannot be abandoned, they can only be left; if we're feeling abandoned we're regressing. He also reminds us that no matter how overwhelmed we are, adults always have options; if we believe we don't, we're in a regression. Growing Yourself Back Up will show you how to: * develop strong emotional boundaries and convey them to others * learn the Detour Method that reverses regression * confront without regressing * communicate with the authority figures who push your buttons * minimize regression at family functions Lee offers hope--as well as practical strategies that work--for conquering those childlike feelings of powerlessness that are almost always rooted in regression. From the Trade Paperback edition.

“I don’t wish my children to be adopted out to anyone at all.” Regina Fox Dodge’s mother wrote these words to her oldest daughter shortly before Regina was born. Two years later, the 43-year-old mother died, leaving her husband with eight children to raise during the Great Depression. The mother’s plan was carried out shortly after she died. Regina’s 19-year-old brother and 16-year-old sister took the four younger sisters, Marjorie, age 11, Ruth Elaine, age 8, Virginia, age 4, and Regina, age 2, to a Catholic orphanage in Pueblo, Colorado. Regina details life at the orphanage where a tender touch was not allowed but spanking was an art.

The story of Grossinger’s Catskill Resort Hotel, an American landmark where generations of New Yorkers beat the summer heat—and the fun never ended. From 1919 to 1986, if you were Jewish and lived in New York City, there was one word that could make you sigh with longing: Grossinger’s. Founded as a simple backwoods retreat, the resort grew to cover twelve hundred acres and become the premier summer destination for the great and the not-so-great to mingle, drink, dance, and romance the summers away. A true melting pot of the Borscht Belt, sports, and show-biz worlds, its loyal visitors included Rocky Marciano, Mel Brooks, and Jackie Robinson. And it’s where Tania Grossinger grew up. In this fascinating insider’s account, Grossinger sheds light on what it was like to live in the place where everyone else wanted to be—from thousands of strangers coming into your home expecting to be treated like royalty, finding clever ways to have fun and just be a kid while staying out of everyone else’s way, coming to grips with the daunting world outside of Grossinger’s, and stumbling onto startling discoveries like adults who drink, curse, fight, and have actual sex. Growing Up at Grossinger’s is both a wonderful coming-of-age story and “a delightful look at how America, especially Jewish America, enjoyed itself before the airplane took us in different directions” (Publishers Weekly). INCLUDES PHOTOGRAPHS “To be devoured in one non-stop gulp . . . fascinating reading.” —The New York Post “Tania Grossinger’s childhood was the stuff of modern fairytales. Like a version of Kay Thomson’s Plaza Hotel-dwelling Eloise by way of ‘Dirty Dancing.’” —Jewish Daily Forward

Growing up is an ongoing, challenging, exciting and satisfying journey. In this book, Wendy Freebourne takes you through that journey, step by step, giving you the tools you need to navigate it successfully. She shows you how responsibility, chosen carefully and taken on willingly, brings freedom and fulfilment; and how, although your physical abilities change as you get older, this does not mean that illness and infirmity are necessary results of aging. This book is written in an insightful, practical but gentle and compassionate, spiritual style. It gives a holistic overview, while also paying attention to practicality and detail. You will find realistic advice for moving into a maturity that is not painful or burdensome, but joyful, if also less predictable than you were brought up to believe it would be. It gives models for growing up in the twenty-first century. '. . . elucidations of how and why we function within a sometimes highly dysfunctional world and how we can do that more effectively have led me to revelations, research and new training opportunities.' Fraser Trevor MSc, Addiction Counsellor and Research Scientist

There was a time, not so long ago, when everything in life seemed pretty simple. You had great friends, you got along with your parents (most of the time!), and you were pretty happy with the way your life was. But suddenly, it seems like everything is changing. Your friends expect way too much from you, and often let you down. You fight with your parents more than you’d like, and they never seem to be happy with you. You just don’t understand why your life seems so chaotic now. Melissa and Sissy, the authors of this book, think they can help you figure out some of the big questions inundating your mind:• Who am I? • What do I want? • What should I do? • Who do I want to be? While they’re no longer teenagers, Melissa and Sissy remember a bit about their entry into teenage life. But more than that, they talk with girls who are a lot like you every day—girls who are feeling pressure from everyone around them, who are feeling like they’re changing in ways they don’t understand—physically, emotionally, and spiritually—and they feel like their lives are out of their own control. If you’ve ever asked yourself any of those questions above, or if you just don’t know why you feel like everything is changing and you miss the “good old days” of Barbies and board games, this book can help you understand who you are and give you hope for who you are becoming.
