Discover how to: - Free yourself from the burden of proving your love and requiring proof in return - Avoid doing anything out of guilt, resentment, shame or obligation - Learn to effectively express how you are and what you need

From the start of life, all of us strive to achieve two goals: intimacy with another person and discovery and expression of our own identity. All too often, however, we experience these goals as conflicting. Being and Loving is an outgrowth of Dr. Horner's work as a teacher and psychotherapist. In this book, she focuses on the image of self and of others formed in the first three years of life and guides readers down a carefully chosen path that leads to a workable solution to their problems. To all those who have experienced frustration and despair born of conflict between being and loving, this book says, "Give it another try."
In this enlightening, Tom d'Ansembourg challenges readers to peal away their emotional mask and finally live an authentic life. Each day, millions of us walk through life with complete disregard to our own needs. We're polite and attentive, wearing the mask of the giver. Yet, deep inside, we ache for acknowledgement, balance and connection. Others may wear the aggressor's mask, fighting to be heard, demanding to be listened to, or breaking through walls to get what we want. The truth is, whatever mask we wear keeps us from connecting to our basic human needs. In this critically acclaimed book.
Tools to Resolve Conflict & Foster Relationship Intelligence

Pubpsher: PuddleDancer Press
Positing a radically new understanding of the root of conflict—unmet needs—this analysis boldly directs students and teachers to recognize feelings as important messengers of those needs. Refocusing attention from feelings to the needs behind the feelings addresses the underlying problem rather than the symptom; with this objective, the concept of the “No–Fault Zone" is introduced. It is a place in the classroom free from criticism or blame where students learn trust and respect for one another, develop successful conflict-resolution skills, and the responsibility for resolution shifts from teacher to students. The complete conflict resolution curriculum is included, providing step-by-step guidance and making this classroom kit a time-saver for busy teachers.

When Lindsey flirts with him, Hanson isn't sure if it's real or out of gratitude. Things like that don't happen to him, and he has little self-confidence.

Hanson has been given a second chance, and isn't going to waste it. Maybe by learning to love himself, he can love someone else, too.
