Moving from Fear to Courage: Transcendent Moments of Change in the Lives of Women

Moving from Fear to Courage: Transcendent Moments of Change in the Lives of Women Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why do so many women stay in abusive relationships? Why do some fail to their potential? Why do so many avoid taking risks? These are good questions, but it might be more illuminating to ask why some women are able to escape their abusers, or take huge risks and become conspicuously successful? The authors asked these questions and found an interesting answer. Each of the women they spoke with had experienced a moment of transcendence - a moment in which their fear was overcome by one brief flash of insight they would eventually recognize as courage. The text examines the common and often unconscious fears women face in abusive situations and explains how readers can protect themselves in situations where real fears are justified. It encourages readers to face fears that prevent achievement of potential, offering specific ways for wome to help themmselves, find solutions to problems, and make positive life choices.

Synopsis:

We didnt know each other very well. Wed met at graduate school and liked each other, but wed just never spent much time together. When one of our favorite professors became gravely ill, we came together to support each other through the difficult time. We began to share how afraid we were—of losing our teacher and of the many vulnerabilities of life. What is the true meaning of life? How do we keep ourselves going when everything is falling down around us? What can we do to overcome our fears? The more questions we asked, the more we began to reflect upon our own lives and the events that had transpired to bring us together that day . . .

Synopsis:

How are some women able to successfully escape their abusers or to take huge risks? This inspiring book by two mental health professionals looks at the brief moments of insight that change women's lives.
