8 WAYS TO WELL BEING by Sonnee Weedn, Ph.D.

MANY BLESSINGS: A Tapestry of Accomplished African American Women by Sonnee Weedn, Ph.D.

Quite some time ago I began to think about what forces help to create leadership and resilience in women. I began thinking about the confluence of the Civil Rights Movement and the Women's Movement, and how these two forces allowed African American women to emerge in greater numbers as leaders in ways not possible in past generations. This lead me to wonder about what it was in successful African American women that helped them persevere through hardship and obstacles to come forward to claim their destiny.

These musings were the impetus for my book, Many Blessings: A Tapestry of African American Women, which contains interviews with 30 accomplished African American women and chronicles the stories of their lives and their advice to other women of all ethnicities.

It was an amazing journey of discovery and delight! The interviews are divided into seven categories of character strength that I believe embody the essence of the unique legacy of African American women.

Making Advances: A Comprehensive Guide for Treating Female Sex and Love Addicts
by Marnie C. Ferree (Editor)

-- Dr. Weedn was a contributor to Chapter 5 --
A ground-breaking work, Making Advances is the first book to offer a targeted approach for effectively treating women who struggle with sex and love addiction. This long-overlooked population faces significant challenges, including a lack of trained therapists who understand their unique pain.
Making Advances describes the problem, explores its biopsychosocial roots, and thoroughly outlines the assessment and diagnosis process. This critical text emphasizes the importance of the therapeutic relationship and describes how treating female sex and love addicts is different from treating men. It delineates the best practices for conducting group therapy, arresting acting out, addressing attachment injuries, and working with male partners of female sex addicts as well as other special populations.
Finally, Making Advances explores the process of a female sex addict’s growth into a woman of grace and integrity through building healthy relationships, healthy sexuality, and healthy living practices. Editor Marnie C. Ferree and the gifted writers provide a research and attachment-based treatment guide that is already the standard in the field.
