New World Meditation: Focusing-Mindfulness-Healing-Awakening by Lucinda Gray, Ph.D.
New World Meditation is a fusion of Focusing with Mindfulness, activating both of these amazing methods of stress reduction, healing and growth. NWM is a daily practice, a specific step by step method that goes beyond checking in, and gradually leads you into and through a healing process. Awakening is the fruit of this journey of self-discovery. Through healing you make peace with the past so that you are no longer haunted by fears of future repetitions. You are free to live in the beauty and joy of the Now; free to live with full authenticity because you accept your true self as the fully human being that you are.

Focusing in Clinical Practice: The Essence of Change by Ann Weiser Cornell.
“Since Eugene Gendlin’s landmark book Focusing, first published in 1978, there has been too little in the way of clinical application of his seminal work. In her thorough, illuminating book, Ann Weiser Cornell fills this need . . . It is “magic” made simple, pure and simple.” —Peter Levine, PhD, author of In an Unspoken Voice and Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma.
Integrating mindfulness, body psychotherapy, positive psychology, and more, Focusing—used in conjunction with any therapy type—teaches clients how to contact their inner awareness or "felt sense" to spur real change and therapeutic progress. This practical guide explains the core principles of Focusing, how to incorporate it with other treatment modalities, and how to use it to treat a range of client issues. More information

Sadie Listens: An Inward Journey by James Steele. A grief and healing story about the death of Sadie’s cat and how she notices and nurtures her feelings, all on her own. The illustrations use specific colors to represent Sadie in relationship with different aspects of herself. One of the greatest gifts to bestow upon a child is the ability to transform difficult feelings. Since this book’s debut in 2002, Sadie has encouraged children to overlay their own feelings onto Sadie’s situation, drawing them into a Focusing experience. The clarity and intensity of the illustrations give children full permission to go deeply into, and finally allow expression, to life’s paralyzing events. “The prevailing human may be the individual who can transform their broken humanness at the same velocity as technology and rapid planetary change”.

Creating Confidence - How to Do Social Work Without Destroying People's Souls by Anna Willman
Forty years ago a handful of renegade social workers in the small conservative rural town of Roseburg, Oregon, started meeting with their welfare mom clients in the local bars for gripe sessions about the welfare system. Together they developed a radical new concept they called “People Planned Delivery” and a program for women called the Confidence Clinic. Their history includes brilliant successes and stunning betrayals. It is a messy story that begins with a lot of loud yelling and name calling and goes on to a proliferation of services, all designed and, to a great degree, operated by the people who were to benefit from them. This book tells their story and provides a clear guide to following their lead in helping women to empower themselves and transform their lives. “It only takes one women to change the world, but a group of women can change anything.” Maxine Gish, Confidence Clinic graduate “The Confidence Clinic…is what I call a psychic family – a group committed to mutual help…for women who have been isolated, despairing, and dependent.” Gloria Steinem, Revolution from Within
