A Word at the Start…

In 2008, I published The Courage to Feel: A practical guide to the power and freedom of emotional honesty. I have come to learn that it has helped a great many people. It has even changed lives. I also realized that The Courage to Feel didn’t speak to the younger people, particularly teenagers, who came into my office.

Youth is a tumultuous time of life, and it is made more so when the adults that surround them don’t model emotional competency. Without mature emotional models, young people are left abandoned with their anger, their confusion, and their fears as they enter the journey of self-discovery. This realization planted the seeds that eventually gave birth to –

How Simon Left His Shell: The courage to feel for young people.

In my first book, the chapters are interspersed with a fable about a turtle named Simon.. I used the fable in order to make the teaching in The Courage to Feel more vivid and interesting. (Self-help books, I must admit, can be boring beyond belief).

The fable turned about Simon’s desire—and journey of self-discovery--to free the artist within him by leaving his shell. His hope was that then he could be free to paint scenes of his home in a southern marsh. Still, I felt that I was not reaching young people as directly as I wanted.

Consequently, I have expanded Simon’s story to How Simon Left His Shell and added a “User’s Guide for Parents, Teachers and Therapists.” This experiential and interactive guide, with its questions and practice scenarios, uses the fable to teach young people to value and listen to their emotional guidance system and how to be emotionally competent in stormy times.

It is my hope that emotional competence and courage will prepare these future adults as they journey through relationships, marriages and families of their own into a world thirsty for healing waters that spring from the opened heart.

The most comprehensive and practical book examining the relationship between trauma, dissociation, and eating disorders

This hands-on clinical guide delivers a trauma-informed phase model that promotes effective treatment for individuals with all forms of eating disorders. The second edition includes the addition of new chapters addressing the impact of a variety of contemporary issues—such as racism, LGBTQIA+ bias, COVID-19, and neurodiversity—on eating disorders as well as the treatment of eating disorders and trauma on children and teens. Case studies are also included throughout the text to illustrate these issues among all types of clients with eating disorders.

Underscoring its effectiveness, the book describes in depth a four-phase treatment model encompassing team coordination, case formulation, and a trauma-informed, dissociation- and attachment-sensitive approach to treating eating disorders. Authored and edited by noted specialists in eating and other behavioral health disorders, the text examines these maladies from neurological, medical, nutritional, and psychological perspectives. Dedicated chapters address each treatment phase from a variety of orientations, ranging from Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to body-centered and creative therapies. Recognizing the potential pitfalls and traps of treatment and recovery, it also includes abundant psychoeducational tools for the client. Purchase includes online access via most mobile devices or computers.
