Workplace Substance Abuse - an underestimated and silent epidemic?: T. Gilg, V. Happel, J. Lagois, H. Laurell, A. Manns
Dara Dietz begins her life story with a question: ´´How does one go from being a victim to a victor?´´ As a very young child, then through adolescence, she found herself trapped in a family environment as well as in a social religious community where she was neglected, betrayed, and molested. She easily could have lost her way. She could have become an angry person, blaming others for all her misfortune and life circumstance. It would be easy to understand her emotion. Yet, her present life is one of counting her blessings and helping others heal naturally. What changed the direction of Dara´s life journey? She chose to believe and travel with the power of love, God´s love - a love that at first was not always easy to understand, trust, or accept. As her story reveals, it was Divinely life-transforming when she welcomed this unconditional love into her heart. Dara´s life lessons are about choices and how great trials can be great teachers; how the biggest hurts can be the biggest gifts. It is one´s choice how to learn the lesson. Her story illustrates how her spiritual courage enabled her to make choices that allowed for acceptance, forgiveness, and to be in the flow of Whatever Good May Come. This inspiring audiobook is a must-listen for those who have been in or are now experiencing a situation and feelings where all hope may seem lost. It is an audiobook for people who love such individuals. 1. Language: English. Narrator: April M Barrow. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/027818/bk_acx0_027818_sample.mp3.

Silent Cry:The True Story of Abuse and Betrayal of an NFL Wife Dorothy J. Newton
A lyrical, haunting debut that explores the power of parenthood, identity, lust, and the legacy of trauma, as the lives of two neighbors are upended by ghosts from their past lives. When the news of her mother´s death reaches Jocelyn Morrow, it stirs up memories of her traumatic childhood. She is a mother herself now, to six-year-old Lucy; living a life of privilege in Southern California with her husband Conrad; moving in a world of wealthy white women, even though she is not white; as far away from her past as she can get. Her designer clothes cover a net of scars across her back, and she hides an even deeper mark—a fundamental stain, something she believes invited her abuse. She also has a blossoming secret: she is becoming obsessed with Kate, her tennis coach. Her neighbor Simon Bonaventure is a successful landscape architect and a Rwandan refugee. He too is haunted, by the wife and daughter who were taken from him in the genocide twenty years ago. The ghosts of those he could not save, and those who took them, are never far, and now he has received a letter—allegedly from his daughter, grown, and full of questions for a father she doesn´t know. As Jocelyn and Simon begin a tentative friendship, they forge a bond out of their dark secret histories—a bond that may be their only hope of being pulled back from the abyss.

And the Angels Are Silent, by Yoseph Cohen Elran XVI. ´´Ezekiel went. Ezekiel is no longer here. Who can give me back the moment to change it? Those who can, allow me to give him one last hug and tell him how much I loved him. I´ve never said those words to him. But nothing can bring him back. A single moment. A touch. A liberating sigh just to get to the end of longing.´´ This is the story of Ezra, a child who tells the story of how his family, together with all the Jews of Baghdad, experienced riots and abuse, and the story of his younger brother, who was active in the Zionist underground. And the Angels Are Silent is a heroic chapter in the history of the Zionist struggle in the revival of the country. This fascinating, creative, and mesmerizing tale penetrates the individual soul and the souls of the nation and raises the question of divine intervention in human life.

This bundle contains sad topics that confront us with the harsh realities of our society. You might know someone who is in a relationship with someone who is emotionally abusive, or you might be in a relationship with someone like that yourself. Or perhaps you don’t know how to recognize it and are curious how you can recognize the signs. Whichever the reason, you have come to the right place.Since it is all over the media and the horrific stories echo through our empathetic ears, it is almost mandatory for any caring civilian in society to understand at least some basics when it comes to sexual abuse. The facts are out there, and it is really happening to people in secret and sometimes without hiding anything. In this book, you will learn to grasp the reality of this sad phenomenon in society. Some of us may have been through it, and others have seen it in other people’s homes. Domestic violence is a serious problem. The stats don’t lie, but they aren’t completely accurate either. They reveal the victims who speak up, but not the ones who stay silent. If you are wondering what is involved in domestic violence, what to do, and how to recognize it, then you’ve come to the right place. In one part of the book, there is a study with the specific issues that relate to suicidal tendencies. Causes and consequences come to light, and comparisons are made between countries, individuals, and triggers that influence a person in a depressive state to contemplate the unthinkable. Perhaps not as severe, but verbal abuse happens all the time. Whenever people are mean to each other, they are, in some small degree, abusing another with their words. It could be strangers, coworkers, bosses, your spouse, your parents, your boyfriend or girlfriend, or your friends. 1. Language: English. Narrator: JJ Hancock.
