The customers, and even Michelle, are falling under the spell of the magical stories of romance, adventure, and lost dogs.

Jill Stark was living the dream. She had a coveted job as a senior journalist, she was dating a sports star, and her first book had just become a bestseller. After years of chasing the fairytale ending, she’d finally found it. And then it all fell apart. Getting her happy-ever-after plunged Jill into the darkest period of her life, forcing her to ask if she’d been sold a lie. What if all the things that she’d been told would make her happy were red herrings? Could it be that the relentless pursuit of happiness was making her miserable? From the ashes of Jill’s epic breakdown comes this raw, funny, and uplifting exploration of our age of anxiety. Charting her own life-long battles with mental health, Jill asks why, in a western world with more opportunity, choice, and wealth than ever before, so many of us are depressed, anxious, and medicated. When we’ve never had more ways to connect, why do we feel so profoundly disconnected? Happy Never After is a soul-searching journey from despair to clarity and a forensic examination of our troubled times. Road-testing neuroscience’s latest psychological frontiers in compassion, acceptance, gratitude, play, hope and solitude, Jill turns the happiness fairytale on its head, and swaps the ‘quick fix’ approach to mental health for the long road back to herself. In the end, Jill has a hard-earned question for us. We’re all looking for answers. We all want the happy-ever-after. What would happen if we stopped chasing, stayed still, and found calm and meaning in places we least expected?

Mary has brought Mark, recently returned from war service in Afghanistan, into counselling because of concerns for his gambling and how much it is costing the family. Is his military service playing some role in the increase in his gambling? Kylie has a problem with her anger. Brett is threatening to leave if her aggression is not better contained. Is her irritability that of an untreated depression or perhaps the brooding anger of a borderline personality disorder? Bettina is taking Lithium for bi-polar disorder and has just come out of hospital after a two-week admission related to her anorexia, and there is a need to closely monitor her weight. Natalie, her partner, is feeling highly stressed. She loves Bet, but feels overwhelmed be a responsibility to keep her alive. What support and guidance is best for Bettina? Much relationship counselling today is conducted by generalist psychologists, social workers, and counsellors. Yet there is a strong case for a greater role for clinical psychologists. Accurate assessment during couples therapy is essential, the dynamics between people are complex, and the process is potentially very demanding of clinical skills. This book provides an opportunity to make the argument for greater involvement in relationship counselling by the clinical psychology profession and to guide both clinical students and practitioners toward an informed and integrated approach to relationship counselling, drawing on the best evidence-based treatments.

This book examines how membership of the European Union has affected life in the ten former communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe that are now members of the European Union. It attempts to answer some fundamental questions: Was the reward of EU membership worth the sacrifices made? How have the new member states fared? Has the promise of EU membership, on which so many expectations were based, been realised? Or have the new member states traded a Socialist Commonwealth with Moscow pulling the strings for an over-centralised Brussels bureaucracy that lacks transparency and accountability? How has a shared communist past influenced the countries' post-socialist and post-accession trajectory? How have the populations of post-communist Europe fared? Have some done better than others? Are these divergences confined to the political, economic or social spheres, or to more than one? If there have been disappointments, how have the populations reacted to these? By taking stock of debates within domestic elites, popular opinion, non-governmental organisations, civil society, and external actors, this book seeks to answer these crucial questions.

Chief among Tolstoy' s shorter works is "The Death of Ivan Ilych," a masterful meditation on the act of dying. The first major fictional work published by Tolstoy after a mid-life psychological crisis, this novella reflects the author' s struggle to find meaning in life, a challenge Tolstoy resolved by developing a religious philosophy based on brotherly love, mutual support, and charity. These guiding principles are the dominant moral themes in "The Death of Ivan Ilych," an account of the spiritual conversion of a judge-- an ordinary, unthinking, vulgar man-- in the face of his terrible fear about death. Also included in this volume are "Family Happiness," an early work that traces the arc of a marriage; "The Kreutzer Sonata," a frank tale of sexual love that shocked readers when it first appeared; and "Hadji Murá d," Tolstoy' s final masterpiece about power politics, intrigue, and colonial conquest.

DescriptionIn a quiet village, maybe not so far away from you, lives a person that has a mental health problem that has gone unnoticed for years. Every thing is fine until the ideal little world that this person lives in is destroyed. After viewing the families of the village in a different light feels that someone needs to help the children. That is the right thing to do to send them to heaven early, so to avoid a life of misery and upset, as they carry the baggage of a bad childhood through to adulthood. The killer can see not wrong it what is done and feels in fact they are a saint for saving these children, releasing them into paradise early. How far will the killer go, you will be shock! But is this a cold hearted murderer? Or are they helping these children to avoid the suffering that this world brings? That is up to you to decide! About the AuthorAlison Haydon was born in the year 1968 in the September, an autumn baby. Alison got through school obtaining, to her shock, O levels and left not wanting to go to collage. She then went from job to job until children came along. Alison is happily married to Ian and have four children, two boys and two girls. Her eldest girl has Asperser Syndrome and she is the reason behind the book, Happy ever after - not! Alison believes that not enough help is given to the families of children that have mental health issues and are just left to get on with it. She hopes the story shows the world that not ever killer is cold hearted and not ever one with mental health issues is a killer, but as a society we should be more encouraged to welcome and help people that are deemed as not "normal" to hopefully stop anything like this happening. Alison is currently doing an Open University degree in English, a creative writer's course and a teaching course to, hopefully, go on and teach adults with learning problems the joy of being able to get the story from the head to the paper. She also has the good luck of going and playing for two hours a week in a drama group.
