Stand By Me
Helping your teen through tough times
I'm a dad and I'm scared.
When I say I'm a dad and I'm scared, I really mean: I'm a dad and I'm looking for answers – from the professionals, kids, mums, dads and other caregivers who have been there, holding each other's hands to hell and back.
Stand by me. Let's take the journey together.
Charting John Kirwan's personal experiences as a father, and featuring the real voices of young people today, Stand By Me investigates issues around teenage mental health, with a focus on depression and anxiety.
With clinical psychologists Dr Elliot Bell and Kirsty Louden-Bell, JK confronts the big questions facing parents and teens, highlighting key messages and offering best approaches. Stand By Me also draws on the perspectives of teenagers who have been diagnosed with mental health issues and the families who have journeyed with them. In their own words, the young people reflect on their darkest days and recovery, and consider how these experiences have shaped them as they face forward into their adult lives.
Intimate, enlightening and impossible to ignore, Stand By Me is a window into an all-too-real issue facing New Zealand families, and a powerful tool for anyone concerned about the wellbeing of young people in their care.

If not dieting, then what?
This straightforward, no-nonsense guide to weight management addresses the evidence that weight-loss treatments may worsen rather than improve long-term physical and psychological health. The solution of an attitude change that calls for a more positive view of food that is not characterized by the “no pain, no gain” ethos is presented. How to minimize fat intake without sacrificing food enjoyment is also explained.
Overcoming Problem Drinking
Self-help book aimed specifically at problem drinking uses an approach based on real clinical practice, first to recognize alcohol misuse and then, using proven Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques, to show the drinker how to turn the tables and regain control of alcohol consumption. For anyone who feels alcohol is beginning to rule their lives, this is an indispensable guide, combining the expertise of psychologists and those working in the medical profession. It also shows how to enlist the help of friends and family.
Hold Me Tight
Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love
The message of Hold Me Tight is simple: Forget about learning how to argue better, analyzing your early childhood, making grand romantic gestures, or experimenting with new sexual positions. Instead, get to the emotional underpinnings of your relationship by recognizing that you are emotionally attached to and dependent on your partner in much the same way that a child is on a parent for nurturing, soothing, and protection. Dr. Johnson teaches that the way to enhance or save a relationship is to be open, attuned, and responsive to each other and to reestablish emotional connection.
