A Mother Loss Workbook

A Mother Loss Workbook: Healing Exercises for Daughters 

By Diane Hambrook, CSW, MSW. and Gail Eisenberg with Herma M. Rosenthal. (1997)

From Amazon.com – To tell you how to use this workbook would be like giving you instructions on how to grieve. Impossible. The only thing we know for sure is that no two people will approach this work in the same way. If there’s one thing you should remember as you begin this process, it is this: You are not alone. With that knowledge, you’ve already begun to heal.
–from A Mother Loss Workbook

Inspired by Hope Edelman’s bestselling Motherless Daughters, authors Diane Hambrook and Gail Eisenberg have created a sensitive, accessible workbook for women suffering the wounds of early mother loss. A Mother Loss Workbook is designed to help the, motherless daughter tell the story she needs to tell–her story. Its varied exercises, open-ended questions, writing topics, and activities, drawn from Hambrook’s years of work with motherless daughters, provide both careful direction and generous room for self-expression. This book is a safe place where no one will judge a woman, where the work she must do can be done in her own time, at her own pace, and at any stage of mourning.

A Mother Loss Workbook is an ideal supplement for personal therapy and support groups, but it is an important–and perhaps the only–tool for women just starting their journey or who are hesitant to go public with their feelings. Whether a woman uses it privately or shares it with a group, no matter how long its been since her mother died, A Mother Loss Workbook will guide her toward fully understanding her loss and taking charge of her future.

The Panic Workbook for Teens

The Panic Workbook for Teens: Breaking the Cycle of Fear, Worry, and Panic Attacks, by Debra Kissen, PhD, MHSA, Bari Goldman Cohen, PhD, & Kathi Fine Abitbol, PhD. (2015)

Panic attacks are scary, and can make you feel like you’ve lost control—leading to more anxiety, stress, fear, and even depression. This easy-to-use workbook provides step-by-step instructions to help you identify anxiety-inducing thoughts, mindfully observe them, and stop the cycle of panic, once and for all.

If you’re like many other teens with a panic disorder, you may sometimes feel like walls are closing in on you, or that something dreadful is about to happen. The most frustrating thing about panic attacks is that they can happen anytime, anywhere—sometimes when you least expect them—and you may go through your day fearing another attack. So, how can you start managing your panic before it gets in the way of school, friends, and your life?

In The Panic Workbook for Teens, three anxiety specialists will show you how to identify anxiety-causing thoughts and behaviors, mindfully observe your panic attacks instead of struggling against them, and experience sensations associated with panic until you discover that these sensations may be uncomfortable—but not dangerous.

No matter what situation you find yourself in, by learning how to objectively monitor your panic attacks, you’ll gain a sense of control and learn to work through even the toughest moments of extreme anxiety—whether you’re taking a test, on a first date, or at a job interview.
