Prescriptions Without Pills

Have you ever wanted relief from feeling discouraged? worried? irritated? locked in habits that ultimately harm you?

These negative states–depression, anxiety, anger and addictive habits–are the common colds of mental health. Like mild physical illnesses however, they can cause much distress and, if left untreated, can lead to worse difficulties.

Written by Susan Heitler Ph.D,PRESCRIPTIONS Without Pills” offers techniques for resolving the problems that have been provoking your uncomfortable emotions. “PRESCRIPTIONS” guides you back to feeling good and then shows you how to sustain feelings of well-being.

Avoid the risk of negative side effects like weight gain and mental dullness that can result from taking pills to reduce your negative emotions. Instead implement these drug-free prescriptions. Use the prescriptions on your own or with help from a therapist.

Illustrated with engaging stories from the many clients Dr. Heitler has worked with in her forty-plus years as an internationally known psychologist and psychotherapy innovator, “PRESCRIPTIONS Without Pills” aims to help you navigate the route back to well-being and learn skills that can help you to stay there.

16. October 2015 · Comments Off on Gaby Breitenbach’s book, “Inside Views…” is masterfully, brilliantly written · Categories: Child Sexual Abuse, Suggested Reading

Gaby Breitenbach_Inside ViewsGaby has the unique gift of taking us into the horror of the consequences of sexual violence without plunging us into information that could be too difficult for most people to read.  She has written a “page turner.”

She writes in depth about how the wonderful biological help of dissociation is misused by perpetrators to construct the inner world of their victims and use them in ways beyond imagination. This can be healed. It takes time, but it is not impossible.

I dissociated as a child, having been a victim of my father for 13 years.  In the last 25 years, I have been in personal contact with more adults, sexually violated as children, than anyone in America.  I have witnessed the pain and dysfunction. I assumed “Inside..” would be for professionals, only, but it is urgently important for all who want to have an understanding of how violence and dissociation impact lives and, perhaps most importantly, how survivors are healed.
