ABSTRACT: If you are prone to problems with anxiety and worry, you are probably highly intelligent, very creative, detail oriented, and analytical.

ABSTRACT: "Anger is a signal and one worth listening to," writes Dr. Harriet Lerner, in her renowned classic that has transformed the lives of millions of readers.

ABSTRACT: Does this sound familiar? You’ve been in the same job for fifteen years, you’re on your sixth administration (but, hey, who’s counting?), and it looks like it’s going to take a stick of dynamite to get you to jump ship. You know there’s something missing from your marriage and you have a feeling what’s missing is you, but you can’t bear to rock that comfortable old boat. You’re stuck. And, as bestselling author Judith Sills would say, you know the horse is dead. Get off!

And then set yourself loose to go find the one who is.
