Release From Powerlessness: Take Charge of Your Life (Self-Help)
Women describe Release from Powerlessness as a true handbook for understanding the impact on every aspect of life when you “give power away” – loss of self, disrupted relationships, and addictions. At the end of each chapter there are steps for taking power back and living a happy, healthy, productive life. The reader is guided with vignettes, testimonials, exercises for reflection and behavior change – and finally, with a chapter for men or for understanding them.
What’s Wrong With Me? Maybe Not that Much! (Self-Help)
