“Breastfeeding reminds us of the universal truth of abundance; the more we give out, the more we are filled up, and that divine nourishment—the source from which we all draw—is, like a mother's breast, ever full and ever flowing.

Clinical social worker Bette J. Freedson shares seven key insights she has identified through years of workshops, counseling sessions, and her own self-examination as a single mother. Millions of heroic single mothers around the world, poor and rich, are rearing their own or someone else's children. Deaths, separations and divorces, and military deployments send many more women into single mother status every year, while other "hidden" single mothers bring up children virtually alone as fathers are ill, disabled, disengaged or just plain disinterested. In Soul Mothers' Wisdom: Seven Insights for the Single Mother Bette Freedson gently guides often-overwhelmed single mothers to a strong personal identity, a rediscovery of resilience, strength, and courage, and an affirmation of parenting purpose. Soul Mothers' Wisdom helps the woman parenting on her own understand that she can create the life she wants and become the woman she desires to be, transforming challenges into opportunities and solutions, chaos into calm, and discovering (or re-discovering) all she has to offer to her children and her self. Mental health professionals agree—children have a better chance of becoming emotionally healthy adults when their mothers' choices are guided by the wisdom that emanates from a solid core of self, i.e., "soul." Soul Mothers' Wisdom: Seven Insights for the Single Mother offers single mothers the knowledge, counseling and affirmation to help them and their children thrive. "This is a fine book full of support for single parents who have to face the job of raising children alone, and having to share them with another caregiver when they return to work," says T. Berry Brazelton, M.D., .former host of the Emmy-award-winning TV show What Every Baby Knows. "I would advise all single mothers to read it."

' Health psychology is an offer of help, an effort to understand how biological, behavioral, and social factors influence health and illness. As one of the fast-growing sub-specialties, it has now outstripped other divisions of psychology in terms of excitement in the public eye. And yet a new occupation was built on somewhat unrealistic, idealized assumptions. The title of this book was therefore chosen to emphasize the fact that an extensive critique of those assumptions is essential. This book proposes arbitrary boundaries for a discourse on health psychology. The array of subjects is based on two major themes: the foundation of health psychology and the range of disorders where psychological knowledge might benefit the sick; and the question of whether or not health psychology has a systematic and pragmatic structure so as to qualify as a profession. Contents:The Point of Departure: The Pillars of the Health Psychology Edifice‘Bad Boys’ and Prenatal ProgrammingBetween Psychiatry and Medicine: Illness in Search of a PlaceThe Deadly TrioCollective Exaggerated EmotionsA Complementary Point of ViewHolistic Philosophy and a Recipe for Causative GoulashIf Health Psychology is the Answer, What was the Question? Readership: Undergraduates, graduate students, academics, researchers and practitioners in medicine, health science and psychology; members of the public with an interest in science and technology. Keywords:Health Psychology;Medically Unexplained Symptoms;Holistic Psychology and Medicine;PsychopharmacologyReviews:“Professor Myslobodsky has written a thoughtful, scholarly, and entertaining book on disease and health. He punctures many popular balloons belonging to both medicine and psychology, thereby exposing the reader to the vast amount of hot air that has been widely promoted as facts. Both medicine and psychology, it turns out, are professions in process, and their intersection is still to be determined.”Professor E Fuller Torrey The Stanley Medical Research Institute “The Fallacy of Mother's Wisdom should be required reading for every health psychologist and the text for every health psychology course in the country. In addition to its remarkable scholarship, the book has beautiful artwork and a striking cover picture.”Professor Emeritus Irving Maltzman UCLA “This timely and important book critically examines the classic “truths” and “axioms” in psychosomatic medicine and health psychology. Over the last decades, many claims have been made suggesting how serious diseases could be cured by changing mental states , which are flourishing in popular books and TV programs. This book discusses the scientific evidence for such claims, using new techniques, such as functional neuroimaging, where it is possible to provide empirical evidence to back up critical evaluations of the psychosomatic/health psychology axis.”Professor Kenneth Hugdahl University of Bergen, Norway “It is an impressive accomplishment … a delightful read that is at the same time most scholarly in its account of medical history and in its many references to literary works. It is also jam-packed with useful information for the practitioner. Myslobodsky's point of view on the many issues that health psychologists must face with all the new developments in medical science is always refreshing and provocative. The book is fascinating and I learned much from reading it. I recommend it highly.”Elliot S Valenstein Professor Emeritus University of Michigan “His books, ‘Mother’s Wisdom' included, fill me with both knowledge and recognitions of its limits and, even more importantly, they help me think. They transcend professional boundaries, and the writing is good enough that I would recommend them to anyone who is interested in promoting a healthy body, a healthy mind, and even a healthy society.”Professor Pamela J Taylor Co-editor Criminal Behaviour and Mental Health “The final chapter manages to articulate with remarkable clarity the issues that anyone involved in, or interested in, health psychology cannot afford to ignore … this book is so rich in content and so effective in bringing health psychology into the critical light of scientific inquiry.”Journal of Scientific Exploration '

"It's amazing how much my mom did on my behalf. As a seventeen-year-old single mom with relatively little support and all the chips stacked against her, she was able to provide an incredible amount of support for me. Her lessons enriched my spirit, my emotions, and my relationship with God." When Lisa, a seventeen-year-old from Queens, New York, found out she was pregnant, she knew she only had one choice—to keep the child and give him the best life she could. That baby was Terrence Jenkins, better known to the world as Terrence J. From hosting gigs on BET's 106 and Park and E! News to roles in some of Hollywood's biggest movies, Terrence J is living a life he could have only imagined when he was a young boy. But it was the lessons he learned from his mother that helped make him a man—lessons about sacrifice, courage, loyalty, dreams, and perseverance. Through her words and her actions, Lisa showed Terrence the right path. From an early age Terrence's mother pushed him to succeed and led by example. Most important, she put her son first—even if it meant leaving behind the only life she had ever known in New York City in search of a safer environment for her son, having the drive to go back to school to learn a new skill, or having the courage to start her own business and build it from the ground up. Her drive eventually became Terrence's drive. Inspirational, funny, current, and down-to-earth, The Wealth of My Mother's Wisdom offers advice for a new generation. With stories, lessons, and advice from one of the top young names in Hollywood, along with input from some of his famous friends like Kevin Hart, Ludacris, T.I., Trey Songz, and Laz Alonso, Terrence J offers a positive, powerful message: with a strong family bond, the possibilities are endless.
