It is January 15th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nice job landing in 2018 guys. Last month I used the word "perhaps" three times in my little hello blurb. Since then I have been thinking about both Nat King Cole and an exquisite movie called In the Mood for Love. He sang a lovely version of "Quizás, quizás, quizás" that was used in that film. Quizás means perhaps, and there we have it: perhaps, perhaps, perhaps. I highly recommend the song, the film, and, most definitely, the Nat King Cole.I was in Saskatoon recently. It was cold and lovely. Every time I go to Saskatoon I get my friend a lemon poppy seed loaf from Harbord Bakery. This is a few doors away from Parentbooks which is near Her Father's Cider Bar and across the street from Harbord House. If you ever need help with your automobile then Torreira Import Auto Service is near us as well. They are simply the sweetest and wisest auto people. Our street is packed with courteous experts.

So, we are mainly appearing at the store this month. Other than a eagerly anticipated stop with Jessica Benjamin we remain at our nest throughout. A quiet month does not mean there are no new books though. See Karl's list below! It is an awesome and pristine list. I hope you all had a lovely holiday season. Snow arrived in Toronto. With snow came some slippery roads and sidewalks. Please be careful out there.  

News and Announcements
1. It has been slippery.  I know I mentioned this already but, when everything freezes, and then thaws, and then freezes a little bit, it is very easy to Slip 'N Slide in a dangerous way.  It can be very difficult to see the water that rests on the ice.  sometimes you can't even see the ice!  We need you safe.  Please watch your step.  The world needs you safe.

2. January Events:
Working with the Third in Mind:
Finding the Third Between Us with Jessica Benjamin - January 27th

3. Caversham's glorious presentation:

Wowza!  Sam made a holiday window.  LOOK-AT-THAT-SCRUMPTIOUS-WINDOW! 

Hot Off The Press!
Lots of new arrivals this month! Here is just a sample but please click here to view a (long) list of highlights.
Psychoanalytic Perspectives on Passion: Meanings and Manifestations in the Clinical Setting and Beyond
ed by Brent Willock, Rebecca Curtis & Lori Bohm

The manifold connotations of Passion make it highly relevant to psychoanalysis, yet, so far, no book has explored the many facets of this pervasive theme. This book provides a comprehensive guide that will sensitize readers to the omnipresent importance of passionate emotion in the clinical setting, and throughout all areas and times of life. It bursts with thought-provoking ideas. Challenging cases are illuminated by penetrating reflections and novel applications and combinations of theoretical perspectives.
The Science of Couples and Family Therapy: Completing General Systems Theory
John M. Gottman and Julie Schwartz Gottman
World renowned for their work on divorce prediction, here John M. and Julie Schwartz Gottman examine a couples therapy classic: Ludwig von Bertalanffy's 1968 collection General System Theory. This book transformed therapy, but until now there hasn't been a researched-based demonstration that these ideas work. Using the latest research tools, the Gottmans complete the promise of this early work.
Activating Happiness: A Jump-Start Guide to Overcoming Low Motivation, Depression, or Just Feeling Stuck
Rachel Hershenberg
It's not just big choices that can radically change our lives-sometimes it's the small ones. Activating Happiness offers powerful, evidence-based strategies to help you conquer low motivation, nix negative moods, and defeat depression by actively making positive choices in small, everyday moments.
Learning Good Consent: Building Ethical Relationships in a Complicated World
Cindy Crabb
Curated by Doris editor Cindy Crabb, Learning Good Consent looks at the culture of sexual consent from a standpoint both sexy and educational. Over the course of 46 pages, Cindy and friends create a well-rounded consent workshop, with all sites set on healing and helping. In a world of shady abusers, demonized victims, and one-sided dating rituals, Consent has your back. As says Cindy in the zine's intro,"Talking about our experiences with consent, our struggles, our mistakes and how we've learned, these are part of a much larger revolutionary struggle."
Indigenous Healing Psychology: Honoring the Wisdom of the First Peoples
Richard Katz
Wherever the first inhabitants of the world gathered together, they engaged in the human concerns of community building, interpersonal relations, and spiritual understanding. As such these earliest people became our “first psychologists.” Their wisdom lives on through the teachings of contemporary Indigenous elders and healers, offering unique insights and practices to help us revision the self-limiting approaches of modern psychology and enhance the processes of healing and social justice. 
Rutter's Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Sixth Edition
Anita Thapar et al
Rutter's Child and Adolescent Psychiatryis the leading textbook in its field. Both interdisciplinary and international, it provides a coherent appraisal of the current state of the field to help researchers, trainees and practicing clinicians in their daily work. Integrating science and clinical practice, it is a comprehensive reference for all aspects of child and adolescent psychiatry. New to this full color edition are expanded coverage on classification, including the newly revised Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), and new chapters on systems neuroscience, relationship-based treatments, resilience, global psychiatry, and infant mental health.
The Emotional Life of the Toddler 
Alicia F.Lieberman
Now updated with new material throughout, Alicia F. Lieberman’s The Emotional Life of the Toddler is the seminal, detailed look into the varied and intense emotional life of children aged one to three. Hailed as “groundbreaking” by The Boston Globe after its initial publication, the new edition includes the latest research on this crucial stage of development.
Future Sex
Emily Witt
A funny, fresh, and moving antidote to conventional attitudes about sex and the single woman.  Emily Witt is single and in her thirties. Up until a few years ago, she still envisioned her sexual experience “eventually reaching a terminus, like a monorail gliding to a stop at Epcot Center.” Like many people, she imagined herself disembarking, finding herself face-to-face with another human being, “and there we would remain in our permanent station in life: the future.”
Unified Protocol for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders : Workbook, Second Edition
David Barlow et al
Leading therapists and researchers have come to understand that many psychological disorders share common features and respond to common therapeutic treatments. This deepened understanding of the nature of psychological disorders, their causes, and their symptoms has led to the development of
new, comprehensive treatment programs that are effective for whole classes of disorders. Unified Protocol for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders is one such program.
Book Reviews

 Be More Cat: Life Lessons from Our Feline Friends by Alison Davies 
I had to do this.  It seems I've taken the newsletter down the cat rabbit hole.  Cats everywhere.  It feels right to me but it is not fair to all non-cat readers.  One might suggest that a mental health bookstore has bigger fish to fry.  I shall steer the ship to more neutral waters as soon as.  The trouble is one cannot simply turn the wheel willy-nilly as it might tip the ship.  These turns must be carefully calculated and the wheel must be turned in designated increments.  I shall navigate back to a newsletter whose mission is equidistant between various house pets as well as those households with no pets. In any case this is a self help book based on cats.  Each little chapter is a lesson.  From living in the moment, to bedtime rituals, to going for what you want and not giving up.  The examples are adorable and the philosophy sound.  I am biased but I am also correct.  Each chapter comes with a little homework that helps you implement cat wisdom.  Cats!
