Adventures in Sex

Illuminating questions for electrifying sex

What if sex were thrilling and fun, rather than a chore or a "drag"? What if it felt more energy-giving rather than energy-draining? Rather than being something nerve-wracking or intimidating, what if there was stuff about sex you hadn't ever thought about? Open this journal and let the adventure begin! Adventures in Sex is not yet another "how-to" book on sex. Instead, it is a series of thought-provoking questions to help you discover your own unique "sexual voice" and confidently communicate that voice to others. Whether you are partnered or single, in a non-traditional or traditional relationship, or just feeling stuck in a stagnant sexual life, this journal will guide you through exploring, expressing, and teaming up on sex.

A Radical Guide for Women with ADHD

If you are a woman with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), you've probably known - all your life - that you're different. As girls, we learn which behaviors, thinking, learning, and working styles are preferred, which are accepted and tolerated, and which are frowned upon. These preferences are communicated in innumerable ways-from media and books to our first-grade classroom to conversations with our classmates and parents.

Over the course of a lifetime, women with ADHD learn through various channels that the way they think, work, speak, relate, and act does not match up with the preferred way of being in the world. In short, they learn that difference is bad. And, since these women know that they are different, they learn that they are bad. It's time for a change.

A Radical Guide for Women with ADHD is the first guided workbook for women with ADHD designed to break the cycle of negative self-talk and shame-based narratives that stem from the common and limiting belief that brain differences are character flaws. In this unique guide, you'll find a groundbreaking approach that blends traditional ADHD treatment with contemporary treatment methods, such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), to help you untangle yourself from the beliefs that have kept you from reaching your potential in life.

Brighter Days Ahead

Deftly combining brain science with unforgettable case histories, Dr. Theodore Henderson explains exactly how the brain changes as a result of depression and how antidepressants work to reverse these changes.

He provides real-world guidance to those who suffer with depression and for their loved ones. Moreover, he addresses everyone’s worst fear – what if ketamine doesn’t work for me? He introduces other novel and powerful treatments for depression, as well as addressing childhood trauma, brain injury, and the importance of mindfulness. In this deeply informed book, Dr. Henderson guides the reader to understanding the brain, depression, and antidepressants in a sometimes poignant, sometimes gritty, no-holds barred, real-world look at depression and recovery.
