Today's women have been trained in the art of juggling, which has them constantly balancing the roles of caregiver, breadwinner, and nurturer. They are taught to care for everyone but themselves. Alice D. Domar, Ph.D., has shown that women who nurture themselves lead healthier, more joyous, and ultimately more meaningful lives. Self-Nurture is the secret to surviving in a world of stressful demands.

Seasoned by her role as mother, psychologist, sister, wife, daughter, and friend -- and by her years of clinical practice with women -- Dr. Domar shows readers how to nurture themselves in their own multiple roles and relationships including:
-- The "relationship quadrant" -- a tool for resolving problems in your closest relationships
-- Strategies for transforming negative thoughts about your work and career to positive ones
-- Creative ideas for guilt-free time for yourself

Readers of Sarah Ban Breathnach, Joan Borysenko, and Christiane Northrup will find Self-nurture a down-to-earth, exploratory map to learning the art of caring for oneself.
