Loving What Is
Author: Byron Katie, Stephen Mitchell
Out of nowhere, like a breeze in a marketplace crowded with advice, comes Byron Katie and “The Work.” In the midst of a normal life, Katie became increasingly depressed, and over a ten-year period sank further into rage, despair, and thoughts of suicide. Then one morning, she woke up in a state of absolute joy, filled with the realization of how her own suffering had ended. The freedom of that realization has never left her, and now in Loving What Is you can discover the same freedom through The Work. The Work is simply four questions that, when applied to a specific problem, enable you to see what is troubling you in an entirely different light. As Katie says, “It’s not the problem that causes our suffering; it’s our thinking about the problem.” Contrary to popular belief, trying to let go of a painful thought never works; instead, once we have done The Work, the thought lets go of us. At that point, we can truly love what is, just as it is. Loving What Is will show you step-by-step, through clear and vivid examples, exactly how to use this revolutionary process for yourself. You’ll see people do The Work with Katie on a broad range of human problems, from a wife ready to leave her husband because he wants more sex, to a Manhattan worker paralyzed by fear of terrorism, to a woman suffering over a death in her family. Many people have discovered The Work’s power to solve problems; in addition, they say that through The Work they experience a sense of lasting peace and find the clarity and energy to act, even in situations that had previously seemed impossible. If you continue to do The Work, you may discover, as many people have, that the questioning flows into every aspect of your life, effortlessly undoing the stressful thoughts that keep you from experiencing peace. Loving What Is offers everything you need to learn and live this remarkable process, and to find happiness as what Katie calls “a lover of reality.”

Eating disorders present diagnostic and treatment challenges to clinicians. While such disorders need both medical and psychological treatment, patients may be too medically ill for a thorough psychiatric evaluation and may be misunderstood by many primary care physicians. In this book, Drs. Philip S. Mehler and Arnold E. Andersen provide a user-friendly and comprehensive guide for primary care physicians, mental health professionals, and others who encounter patients who have eating disorders. Mehler and Andersen identify common medical complications that people who have eating disorders face and answer questions about how to treat them. They also cover such serious complications as osteoporosis, cardiac arrhythmia, electrolyte abnormalities, and gastrointestinal sequelae. Incorporating illustrative case studies, medical background on the complications, guidelines for diagnosis and treatment, and an up-to-date list of selected references, chapters cover important topics including team treatment and nutritional rehabilitation. Care of the patient who is very medically compromised is based on extensive experience.

Such a Pretty Face
Author: Marcia Millman
Publisher: W W Norton & Company Incorporated
We are a fat-obsessed society. Four out of every ten Americans are clinically overweight. Being fat, especially for American women, holds a special significance and is laden with symbolism. Low-fat foods, dieting programs, and diet books, few of which make a lasting difference, are the basis of a multibillion-dollar industry.Yet, despite this obsession with weight control, there is little serious discussion of the deeper meaning of obesity. In a way, obesity is as powerful a taboo as sexuality was for the Victorians.This book argues that the effort to lose weight should be secondary to an understanding of the mythology of fat. Being fat is seen as much more than a physical condition. Fat women are stereotypically viewed as unfeminine, either in flight from sexuality or sexual in some forbidden way, intentionally antisocial, out of control, hostile, aggressive.Using case studies, moving, sometimes painful, autobiographical accounts, and observing such organizations as a fat rights society, Overeaters Anonymous, and a children's diet camp, Marcia Millman reveals how people live with the burden of these stereotypes and explores the truth or falsity of them.This book proves the humanness, the defiance, vulnerability, self-doubt, courage, and even the beauty of those who violate our arbitrary standards of physical beauty. It sees them as whole people, to whom attention must be paid.

Den Kern der einzelnen Kapitel bilden falldarstellende Kurzgeschichten. Diese beruhen auf wahren Begebenheiten, die die Autorin in ihren ‚Rollen‘ als Krankenschwester, Sozialpädagogin, Erziehungswissenschaftlerin, Dozentin, Coach, systemische Beraterin und Rundfunkjournalistin mit anderen Menschen erleben durfte oder erzählt bekam … Jene sind dem im Titel genannten Prinzip gefolgt und beherzigten für sich: Take care of your mind!, denn sie haben am eigenen Leib erkannt, dass ihre Gedanken für ihre gemachten Erfahrungen eine maßgebliche Rolle spielen. Dies birgt zugleich eine enorme Relevanz und Brisanz für den Einzelnen und seine Selbstverantwortung, denn spätestens wenn er Kenntnis davon gewonnen hat, was nach diesem Prinzip folgend alles in seiner Macht steht, trägt er auch die Verantwortung dafür. Daher empfehle ich an dieser Stelle ganz bewusst zu entscheiden, ob Sie weiterlesen wollen oder nicht. Bei der Entscheidung sollten Sie davon ausgehen, dass Sie die Anwendung dieser Denkweise zugleich mit neuer ungewohnter Energie ausstatten und in die Eigenverantwortung bringen kann. Letzteres könnte sich für Sie dabei als unangenehm und lästig erweisen, ersteres wird in aller Regel als sehr angenehm und wohltuend empfunden. Wichtig dabei ist es, gut auf sich selbst Acht zu geben und für das eigene Wohlbefinden zu sorgen …
