Other Books we love

In addition to our book club, below are some other books our providers love.

Atlas of the Heart Book

Atlas of the Heart: Mapping Meaningful Connection and the Language of Human Experience

Brene Brown

We all loved this book!! It's designed to be read, re-read, discussed and mulled over.  Brown writes, “When we don’t have the language to talk about what we’re experiencing, our ability to make sense of what’s happening and share it with others is severely limited” (xxi) The book details 78 emotions and gives fantastic examples of possible ways to respond when experiencing said emotion.  

Chatter: The Voice in Our Head, Why It Matters, and How to Harness It

Ethan Kross

We are all familiar with our “inner voice” and how positive or unhelpful it can be!  Finding ourselves spiraling with difficult thoughts in our heads is a familiar place we have all been during challenging or anxiety-filled moments in our lives.  Chatter really helps the reader look at their inner dialogue and how it can be useful for us and, at times, hinder us in our daily lives.  This fascinating book is full of references to a variety of research and  the author presents many tools to better manage the negative spiraling thoughts that can so easily occur. I find this book incredibly valuable because our lives are greatly impacted by the type of thoughts we experience.  Finding effective, easy to use strategies to manage negative thinking is key to positive well-being.
