Recognize and realize your true desires
Is your life what you want it to be? For most women, the answer is not really. Too often, we listen to everyone but ourselves when it comes to determining how our lives should be proceeding-and this prevents us from living the lives we really desire.
In this remarkable new book, a team of highly credentialed psychologists shows you how to overcome unproductive, blameful thoughts and unrealistic expectations-the things you tell yourself about how marriages, friendships, children, and careers should be. Each chapter lays out widely promoted images of a modern woman-the mother raising a perfect child and loving every minute of it, the top-of-her-game career woman, the woman who loves her body just as it is-then reveals how women more often beat themselves up with these ideals than achieve them. Finding Your Voice shows you how to use self-talk to sort through expectations, isolate your own voice, and take the necessary steps to meet your unique needs. You'll be happier and more confident, and you will live a more fulfilled life-the one you're entitled to.

Do you remember the answer you used to give when you were asked what you wanted to do when you grew up?

This is a book for grown-ups who want to rekindle their childhood dreams with a midlife career change. This is also a book for people who have found fulfilling work lives but have no idea what they will do with themselves in retirement.

We've all been given advice about financial planning and the importance of exercise and eating right. We've been sensible, we have lived in the Real World. No one has asked us: What have you learned about yourself on the job? What has made you happy? Satisfied? Proud? Have you neglected a talent that you nurtured as a youth? What would you be happy never doing again and what would you like to do that you have never done? In other words, for you, what is the Good Life?

Until now. In What Do You Want to Do When You Grow Up? Dorothy Cantor shows that everyone is different when it comes to deciding what it takes to keep growing and learning during one's work life and after. Through questions and reflections concerning your past ambitions and your present realities, through the work stories of people in the midst of transition, Cantor provides the simple tools that can broaden your horizons. With this book and a bit of spirit, you have all you need to make a plan for your next adventure...your future.

The Psychology of Today's Woman - New Psychoanalytic Visions (Paperback): Toni Bernay, Dorothy Cantor The Psychology of Today's Woman - New Psychoanalytic Visions (Paperback)

The sexual revolution, oft discussed in the journalistic literature of recent years, has brought in its wake a host of questions that are only beginning to be addressed. How are women coping with "real world" challenges for which they may be ill prepared, both socially and psychologically? How successfully are they integrating old and new ego ideals in forging new identities? Is their ostensible "liberation" actually making for a sense of integration and wholeness? The Psychology of Today's Woman: New Psychoanalytic Visions probes these and related questions from the standpoint of both developmental and therapeutic concerns. Taking Freud's notion of female sexuality as a point of departure, editors Bernay and Cantor have compiled a collection of original essays that reassesses traditional conceptions of female psychology (Section I), proffers new visions of femininity (Section II), and explores critical situations in the lives of contemporary women (Section III). A final section of the book, of special interest to analysts and psychotherapists, examines the various facets of the clinical treatment of women. Collectively, the contributors to this volume articulate a strong challenge to the "deficiency model" of female identity that has long dominated psychoanalytic theory. More impressively still, they offer constructive alternatives to the preconceptions of the past. They converge in the belief that the richness and diversity of female experience cannot be encompassed in the overly simplified definitions and "masculine" analogizing of classical analysis. Whether we investigate the status of "masculinity" and "femininity" as personality traits, the relationship between "nurturance" and "aggression" in female identity, or the meaning of "normality" and "pathology" in treatment situations, we are very much in a realm of multiple truths in which the formulas of the past give little sense of the options of the present or the possibilities of the future.
