Healthy Parenting

By Janet G. Woititz Ed.D

If you grew up in a troubled or dysfunctional family and suffered through a parent's problems with chronic illness, addiction, emotional upheaval, or loss, you probably know what you don't want for your kids. but, you may lack the tools and experiences to create the nurturing home you do want: a place where your children's physical and emotional needs are consistently met and where your children feel safe, valued, and loved.

In Healthy Parenting, Dr. Woititz, a leading therapist, contrasts what happens in a healthy family with what happens in an unhealthy family to show just how your own upbringing influences the way you raise your children, and what you can do to make their upbringing better for them.

As both a therapist and a parent, Janet Woititz can give you the guidance you missed in your childhood and help you avoid the mistakes your parents made.

  •     Do you feel overwhelmed by your job?
  •     Are you so stressed on the job that you can't sleep? Headaches? Stomach aches?
  •     Do you spend much of your time thinking and talking about your job?
  •     Do you feel responsible for everything that goes wrong on the job?

Adult Children are among any company's most productive and valuable employees -- dedicated, conscientious, capable and eager to please. But, if you are an Adult Child and answered yes to most of the above questions, you may be suffering from workaholism, burn-out or other work related problems. This book shows you what to look for and how to make your work life more satisfying and effective.

How to Live with an Alcoholic

By Janet G. Woititz Ed.D

Marriage on the Rocks

Dr. Woititz in her first, break through book addresses the spouses of alcoholics who feel overwhelmed and desperate in their marriages. Her focus is to show that the boundaries of isolationism and depression that living with an alcoholic brings does not necessarily mean one cannot eventually find piece of mind. Whether or not the alcoholic continues drinking.

Marriage on the Rocks can show you the coping skills you deserve to have when Alcoholism impacts your life.


By Janet G. Woititz Ed.D

In Healing Your Sexual Self Dr. Woititz talks to the millions of men and women, their partners and concerned loved ones, who are "blocked" from healthy relationships because of things that happened to them in their childhood’s. She sensitively identifies what happens to adults who have sexually abused or had their sexuality abused as children, and how those experiences play out in their adult lives in ways that may or may not be sexual. The devastating impact that results when the needs of a parent govern an individual’s thoughts and feelings is also explored. The author gives us the tools for entering realistic and healthy relationships.

This is a book which will appeal to everyone who has problems with intimacy (emotional and physical), to those who have difficulty trusting, to anyone who has ever felt frigid or been impotent, and to those who pick partners who have difficulty combining love and sex.
