Facing Shame: Families in Recovery
ISBN: 0393305813

W. W. Norton & Company. 1989

"This book will be helpful to all practitioners of psychological services and to all persons who wish to understand their dilemnas better." ―Virginia M. Satir

Families that return for treatment time and again often have problems that seem unrelated―such as compulsive, addictive, or abusive behaviors―but that are linked by an underlying process of shame. Comparing the shame-bound family system with the respectful family system, Fossum and Mason outline the assumptions underlying their depth approach to family therapy and take the reader step by step through the stages of therapy. Case examples are used to illustrate the process.

Igniting the Spirit at Work: Daily Reflections (Hazelden Meditations)
ISBN: 1568387415

Hazelden. 2001

Control. Jealousy. Mistrust. Intimidation. Although rarely recognized as such, these behaviors can be major occupational hazards. When negative energy pervades our workplace, productivity and creativity are replaced with isolation and insecurity. Cultivating personal growth in such a setting may be challenging, but it is not impossible. Uplifting daily meditations from workplace psychologist Marilyn J. Mason assure us that-regardless of work site, salary, status, or job title-we need not sacrifice our spiritual health for our work life.
