            The Woman Who Cracked the Anxiety Code: The extraordinary life of Dr Claire Weekes

            The Woman Who Cracked the Anxiety Code: The extraordinary life of Dr Claire Weekes (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Dr Weekes is the invisible giant on whose shoulders many psychiatrists and psychologists now stand. Her extraordinary story has never been told because she was completely ignored by professionals in the field, who had had no answers to the anxiety state and no understanding of th...e scholarship that lay behind her work. Yet her books, which sold for a handful of dollars, worked. The mail from grateful readers was unceasing and unmanageable, and the media competed for interviews with her. Dr Weekes's approach to treating anxiety proved state-of-the-art, and her books still change lives. Her work benefitted tens of millions of people, according to one of the foremost experts in anxiety, Dr David Barlow. How was it that she came to have such a unique understanding of the anxiety state, which was an epidemic hiding in plain sight? Cracking the anxiety code was a long, isolated, individual mission. It started when a terrified young woman, about to earn her first doctorate, was standing on a London wharf in 1929 feeling she simply couldn't go on. It ended with her changing the trajectory of global treatment.

            My psychosis, for all its destruction and wrath, was a love story. When Catherine left London for the US with her husband James, to introduce her family to their newborn son Cato, she could not have envisaged how that trip would end. Catherine would find herself in an involuntary... psych ward in New Jersey, separated from her husband and child, unable to understand who she was, and how she had got there. It's difficult to know where the story of psychosis begins. Was it the moment I met my son? Or was it decided in the before, something rooted deeper in my fate, generations ago? In an attempt to hold on to her sense of self, Catherine had to reconstruct her life, from her early childhood, to a harrowing previous relationship, and her eventual marriage to James. The result is a powerful exploration of psychosis and motherhood, at once intensely personal, yet holding within it a universal experience - of how we love, live and understand ourselves in relation to each other.

            Divergent Mind: Thriving in a World That Wasn't Designed for You

            A paradigm-shifting exploration of neurodivergent women-those with autism, ADHD, synesthesia, and other sensory processing differences-offering a timely, provocative examination of why these traits are overlooked in women and how our society can benefit from allowing their unique... strengths to flourish. As a smart, successful, Harvard and Berkeley-educated writer and devoted mother, Jenara Nerenberg didn't discover her autism and ADHD until well into her adulthood, after it had already taken a huge toll on her personal and professional life. Being a journalist, she dove into the research and discovered neurodiversity-a movement which seeks to stop pathologizing `normal' and `abnormal' brains and start embracing the variety of mental makeups we all have. But we can't accept what we don't recognize, and when it comes to women, sensory processing disorders including autism, ADHD, and synesthesia are often overlooked, masked, or mistaken for something else entirely. Between a flawed system that focuses on diagnosing younger, male populations, and the fact that women are conditioned from a young age to blend in and conform to gender expectations, women often don't learn about their condition until they are adults, if at all. As a result, millions live with undiagnosed or misdiagnosed neurodivergence, and the misidentification leads to depression, anxiety, shame, and low self-esteem. Meanwhile, we all miss out on the gifts their neurodivergent minds have to offer. Divergent Mind is a long-overdue, much-needed answer for women who have a deep sense that they are different. Sharing real stories from women with autism, ADHD, synesthesia, dyslexia, misophonia and more, Nerenberg explores how these brain variances present differently in women and dispels widely-held misconceptions (for example, it's not that autistic people lack sensitivity and feeling, they have an overwhelming excess of it). Nerenberg also offers us a path forward, taking readers through practical ways that i
