Free sample

"This fiction book begins as eight frustrated midlife women-from all walks of life-meet Dr. Kailey Madrona, a woman specialist. All are in perimenopause, the long and chaotic transition to menopause. They are as different as women can be-yet they share the mysterious experiences of perimenopause, night sweats, flooding periods or mood swings. We follow these women as they consult Dr. Madrona, learn the surprising hormonal changes explaining their symptoms, get better or worse, and try or refuse therapies. As each woman lives through her particular challenge, we begin to see how we, too, can survive perimenopause! Dr. Jerilynn Prior tells the story of women in perimenopause through a unique blend of storytelling and scientific fact."--

Most North American colleges have programs that help students understand the harm done to victims of sexual violence and, if prosecuted, the potential consequences of their perpetrators. However, only a few programs also address those aspects of masculine culture that surround sexual assault. Sexual Assault in Context addresses the undesirable aspects of masculine culture that sustains the violation of women and girls. It examines several typically overlooked patterns of behavior that provide the basis for sexual assault and provides an overview of masculine psychological development as a context for sexual assault. The book also includes prevention strategies, information on funding and consultation issues, and additional resources for investigating further into male gender awareness and sexual assault.

The text's hands-on, practical approach, helps counseling professionals negotiate educational, organizational, and logistical issues in helping college men understand the gendered context of sexual assault and harassment. This resource is intended to help reduce the incidence of sexual assault on college campuses, as well as help men gain a greater understanding of: cultural gender pressures; relationship skills; their impact on others; and the considerable influence male peer cultures have on how women are treated.

Sexual Assault in Context provides an easy-to-read synopsis of male gender and sexual assault education strategies. It is intended as a resource for college counseling and/or violence prevention programs, and for those interested in understanding the psychological and social effects of the current culture of masculinity.

Based on her hugely popular Facebook posts and Instagram photos, Feeding My Mother is a frank, funny, inspirational and piercingly honest account of the transformation in Jann Arden's life that has turned her into the primary "parent" to her mom, who is in the grip of Alzheimer's.

Jann Arden moved in to a house just across the way from her parents in rural Alberta to be close to them but also so they could be her refuge from the demands of the music business and a performing career. Funny how time  works. Since her dad died in 2015, Jann cooks for her mom five or six times a week. Her mom finds comfort in her daughter's kitchen, not just in the delicious food but also just sitting with her as she cooks. And Jann finds some peace in caring for her mom, even as her mom slowly becomes a stranger. "If you told me two years ago that I'd be here," Jann writes, "I wouldn't have believed it. And yet we still fall into so much laughter, feel so much insane gladness and joy. It's such a contrast from one minute to the next and it teaches me constantly: it makes me stronger and more humble and more empathetic and caring and kind."    
     The many people who are dealing with a loved one who is losing it will find inspiration and strength in Jann's wholehearted, loving response and her totally Jann take on the upside-down world of a daughter mothering her mother. Feeding My Mother is one heck of an affirmation that life just keeps on keeping on, and a wonderful example of how you have to roll with it.
