Control is a myth. Sooner or later, all of us run into people and situations we have absolutely no control over. That's precisely when we need to step in and take charge. As nationally renowned psychotherapist and author Patricia Wiklund shows in this persuasive new book, taking charge means valuing yourself for who you are and using your strengths to achieve what's important. Warm, practical, and appealingly down-to-earth, "Taking Charge When You're Not In Control" offers real solutions to difficult, everyday issues.

Once we clarify how we feel about what life has dealt us, we gain the power to stop feeling like victims and embrace our best options truthfully and capably. Even if we can't change outside events, we can change the way we react. That's the essence of taking charge -- and this complete program of self-understanding explains how to:
-- confront -- and defuse -- the "out of control" people in our lives
-- stop the labeling, blaming, shaming, and feeling guilty game
-- release yourself from the victim mentality once and for all
-- let go, forgive, and feel your absolute strongest emotionally
-- free yourself of anxiety, self-doubt, anger, and frustration
-- and much more

"Taking Charge When You're Not In Control" is not a recovery book but rather a book about being -- and feeling -- recovered. Here you'll find exercises, anecdotes, and great advice to help you start taking charge -- right now.
