"This Handbook underscores the importance of gender in the lives of girls and women developmentally across significant phases of the life span. Considering the importance of cultural context, this book illustrates how gender socialization in female development and behavior affects self-evaluation, identity processes, and the social roles that girls and women adopt. Its chapters illustrate how externally induced risks such as poverty, discrimination, and violence present challenges to healthy development. Significantly, the chapters also draw attention to long overlooked and compelling strengths and capacities that provide a firm basis for growth and health."--BOOK JACKET.

Der Klassiker der Gesundheitsliteratur komplett aktualisiert und überarbeitet! Christiane Northrup ist in den USA die Koryphäe auf dem Gebiet der Frauenheilkunde. Sie beschreibt offen, klar und einfühlsam die Veränderungen, die Frauen zwischen 40 und 55 erwarten. Dabei räumt sie gründlich auf mit der gängigen Vorstellung, dass sich hinter dem Begriff „Wechseljahre“ einfach eine Ansammlung körperlicher Probleme verbirgt, die – am besten mit Hormonen! – behandelt werden müssen. Die Wechseljahre sind vielmehr ein körperlicher und geistiger Umwälzungsprozess, der Frauen eine echte Chance zum Wachstum bietet – wenn es ihnen gelingt, auf ihre innere Stimme zu hören. Northrup deckt den Zusammenhang zwischen den Wechseljahren und dem emotionalen Leben einer Frau auf und beschreibt unter anderem, wie die Wechseljahre zu einer Verschiebung der weiblichen Prioritäten führen, wie Frauen klimakterische Beschwerden als Weckrufe ihres Körpers erkennen können, wie sich hormonelle Veränderungen auf die Sexualität auswirken, wie Frauen mit den Veränderungen ihres Äußeren umgehen oder sich vor Herzerkrankungen, Alzheimer und Krebs schützen können. Northrup ermutigt Frauen, die Botschaften ihres Körpers zu verstehen, die Wechseljahre als eine Zeit der positiven Energie zu begreifen und die wunderbare Kraft dieser Lebensphase für ihre persönliche Entwicklung zu nutzen. In der Neuauflage des Bestsellers hat Northrup die neuesten Studien und Fallbeispiele zusammengetragen und berichtet mit ihrer reichen Erfahrung aus ihrer Praxis.

We all think we know what we have to do to manage our weight, and blame ourselves when we don't meet the goals we have set. In reality, we need to understand the biology behind the body's regulation of weight to achieve the control we are hoping for. And we need strategies for overcoming obstacles: the stress of daily life, emotional upsets, and people who sabotage our efforts or attack our self-esteem. The Cognitive Behavioral Workbook for Weight Management is a different kind of weight management guide that focuses on helping you stay disciplined and dedicated to your weight management goals by using cognitive behavioral therapy. This approach has been used by therapists for years to treat a diverse range of mental health conditions, and researchers have found that it also helps people make healthy changes that last. This workbook includes exercises and worksheets to help you design a customized weight management strategy most likely to be effective for you based on the habits and lifestyle you have now. You'll set specific goals to improve your body image and your health, and follow a realistic weight management plan designed specifically for you. It is possible to feel good about yourself as you work toward a healthier lifestyle. This book will show you how. Learn to: •Manage situational, emotional, and interpersonal eating triggers •Overcome body image difficulties and critical thoughts •Make changes toward weight management that you actually enjoy •Use support from friends and family to bolster success

“An essential, must-read guide” (Dr. Susan Albers, New York Times bestselling author of Eating Mindfully) from the renowned Duke Integrative Medicine center: the first book to combine health psychology with cutting-edge nutrition research to deliver an up-to-the-minute method for eating mindfully and breaking the yo-yo diet cycle. It’s easy on occasion to eat too much, eat too quickly, eat for comfort, or choose junk food. But every year millions of Americans vow to lose weight and get healthy and aren’t able to overcome the largest roadblock to these changes—ingrained eating habits. Now two leading experts from Duke Integrative Medicine offer a new paradigm for eating and health—a step-by-step program that dismantles old patterns, provides new tools for making healthy choices, and fosters deep, internal motivation. Grounded in scientific research, The Mindful Diet examines how what we eat and drink affects our body on a biochemical level, and how we can become aware of our own internal signals through the practice of mindfulness. Loaded with concrete meditation exercises, behavioral techniques, nutrition advice, and meal-planning charts, this book provides the tools to manage cravings, curb emotional overeating, and figure out when you are full. Instead of an all-or-nothing approach to eating, The Mindful Diet focuses on the many variables that drive our habits—including stress, unhappiness, and even unconscious beliefs—and provides a roadmap for sustainable change. “This is not an eat this, don’t eat that program; rather, it’s an attack on the negative thoughts and patterns that lead to diet failure” (Publishers Weekly). Lasting weight loss and healthy living begin in the mind: now you can learn how to re-program your body, make healthy choices, lose weight, and keep it off for life.
