You Can't Talk to Me That Way!: Stopping Toxic Language in the Workplace stands up to verbally abusive bosses, co-workers, and others and says, "Enough!" It shows readers exactly what to say and do to end the humiliation and torment. Real injury-deep wounds and lasting pain-occurs as a result of verbal insults, putdowns, and ridicule in the workplace. This book is for anyone who has become discouraged, withdrawn and isolated at work due to verbal attacks-or, just as often, has been provoked into shouting matches and verbal confrontations with his or her attacker. Toxic language in the workplace causes people to withhold their best effort, transfer to a different division, or quit outright. Productivity and team spirit wither under a cloud of language meant to humiliate, hurt, and demean. To all those who spew such language at their co-workers, subordinates, and bosses, this book insists "You Can't Talk to Me That Way!" You Can't Talk to Me That Way!: Stopping Toxic Language in the Workplace: Presents a set of personal strategies for ending verbal assault and recovering from its effects Investigates the motives and methods of verbal attackers: who they are, how they operate, and why they torture others by verbal assaults Examines the psychology and circumstances of those targeted for verbal assault Suggests specific, practical steps companies can take to become aware of destructive environments and act quickly and legally to combat them Makes readers aware of their legal options if toxic language at work is damaging their reputations, career progress, and/or physical or psychological well-being Offers a vision of the compatible, decent workplace where employees can do their best work without fear of demeaning verbal assaults from work associates at any level

How do you "hook" a Millennial student into caring about women's issues when feminism has been declared dead for decades? Written in an engaging style that promotes critical thinking, Women's Issues for a New Generation is intended for freshman- and sophomore-level undergraduates who have never heard of Mary Wollstonecraft or Anita Hill. The interdisciplinary text includes three major sections: women in the U.S., women from diverse groups (e.g., Native American and disabled), and women in the global arena. It also stresses the inclusion of men in topics such as body image, since "women's issues" are really issues that affect everyone. Other striking features included the contemporary debates (e.g., War on Women and Hillary Clinton's ambitions) and the current issues such as human trafficking. Textbooks on gender and women's studies often emphasize theory with the assumption that students already know about women's history, the pay gap, and other basic information; Women's Issues for a New Generation serves as a reader-friendly bridge to more advanced analysis of women and gender. Written by a social worker, this textbook applies social work values and the strength perspective to anyone who is fighting gender inequality.

S.E.C.R.E.T.S. Of the First Ladies graphically chronicles the true and heart-wrenching stories of numerous First Ladies who are forced to keep shocking secrets of their husband's incest, infidelity, homosexuality, pedophilia, alcoholism, pornography addiction, mental cruelty and physical abuse. Sadly, these situations are occurring in the one place thought to be a safe haven and a place free of these offenses - the CHURCH! "Christian" men, who are leaders in the church and community, have perpetuated the abuse suffered by these women. Men who hold titles, such as Bishop, Apostle, Pastor, Elder, Reverend and Minister, are committing these human injustices. The courageous First Ladies chronicled in these pages are Spirit-filled women who love the Lord and who are suffering in silence. Their silence is the greatest sin of all! First Ladies must understand their silence will not make their spouse's transgressions right, nor will it lessen the severity. First Ladies, you must understand that YOUR SILENCE WILL MAKE YOU WRONG! By remaining silent, you are, in essence, giving your consent and approval to the misguided actions of your spouse.

At the age of sixty-six, Bryanna Heartley had what most would consider an ideal life. She was the matriarch of a growing family, each of her children successful in his or her own way. She had a happy marriage. She had close friends, financial security, overseas holidays, and a psychology career that she truly loved. However, there was a problem: Bryanna was obese. She suffered from bouts of asthma, problems with reflux, high cholesterol, irritable bowel syndrome, and the early signs of hypertension and renal failure. If she wanted to live much longer, she needed to make a change. With the help of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy, she lost thirty kilograms. She realized her body remembered its childhood illnesses in a way that affected her present health and created a feeling of unworthiness. She learned why some foods became her comfort foods and how to sever that association. Now healthy and aware, Bryanna shares her story with you and guides those hoping to charge down the path to physical and emotional recovery. Bryanna learned how to be her true self, breaking harmful patterns ... and so can you.

Learn Inner Nurturing and End Emotional Eating If you regularly eat when you're not truly hungry, choose unhealthy comfort foods, or eat beyond fullness, something is out of balance. Recent advances in brain science have uncovered the crucial role that our early social and emotional environment plays in the development of imbalanced eating patterns. When we do not receive consistent and sufficient emotional nurturance during our early years, we are at greater risk of seeking it from external sources, such as food. Despite logical arguments, we have difficulty modifying our behavior because we are under the influence of an emotionally dominant part of the brain. The good news is that the brain can be rewired for optimal emotional health. When Food Is Comfort presents a breakthrough mindfulness practice called Inner Nurturing, a comprehensive, step-by-step program developed by an author who was herself an emotional eater. You'll learn how to nurture yourself with the loving-kindness you crave and handle stressors more easily so that you can stop turning to food for comfort. Improved health and self-esteem, more energy, and weight loss will naturally follow.

Understanding Everyday Incivility delves into the day-to-day annoying behaviors that color our interactions with other people, such as the use of crude language in public, family members who claim that they’re “just teasing” and we’re “too sensitive,” coworkers who constantly interrupt us, and inflammatory remarks posted on social media sites. Shelley D. Lane explores what is considered uncivil behavior, why we label some acts as crude or selfish while others are deemed polite and proper, and how these labels often change from one context to the next. She highlights the power dynamics at play in our interactions and explains how “rude” behavior can sometimes be beneficial—and “polite” behavior can be detrimental. Rather than a simplistic manual of manners, Lane provides the tools to understand everyday incivility and strategies for responding effectively and appropriately.
