    CA$19.95
    Grieving for your child is an appalling prospect, truly a parent's worst nightmare.

Shattered by the loss, she is not the person she was--her life forever divided into "before" and "after," defined by membership in a fraternity of grieving parents who function every day in a disbelieving fog.

  • It Takes 2 to Tango, Maybe...

    CA$14.95
    This book speaks to the power of commitment and availability as a treatment tool to effect the most change. In traditional therapy the therapist sits on one side of the process and the client sits on the other. In Dr. Manswell's approach, the therapist, while still respecting the boundaries of therapist and client, becomes part of the solution. Trust, availability, respect, commitment and patience shared equally amongst these three key players makes the difference. Gambling addiction is such a puzzle to those not afflicted with this disability. Dr. Manswell and his clients help us gain insight into the thinking process and emotions that are at war within the gambler as they struggle to overcome the devastating hold gambling has over their lives. It is a story of pain, but more importantly it is a story of hope and of perseverance — and, finally, of success.
  • Journey to Joy: The...

    CA$24.95
    You will laugh. You will cry. You will be uplifted. Journalist Christalee Froese vividly brings to life her recovery from depression in her first book, Journey to Joy. This bold, brave memoir follows Froese on a two-year journey to restore her happiness, and her faith in life. After spending 21 days each month focusing on life-restoring topics like peace, creativity, food, fitness, faith, love, writing, travel, gratitude, and joy itself, Froese emerges with the hope she’d lost. Both heartbreaking and humorous, Journey to Joy offers insight into the stumbles and falls of recovery, and the persistence required to get back up time and again. Froese’s journey takes her to a Chinese orphanage where she finds courage, strength and true purpose. The raw storytelling will change how you view depression and anxiety … and permanently alter your own approach to joy. Most profoundly, Journey to Joy will restore your faith in miracles, and the underlying goodness of mankind. "Grab a pack of sticky notes and choose your own topics of joy. I invite you to embrace your suppressed desires as we wind our way through this book, and life, together. May the act of writing down things you love and have always wanted to do set you free, as it did for me." --Christalee Froese
