Article 8:  250 words
Most people find that relationships are very difficult to manage. Instead of home being a place of peace, it is a source of aggravation, hurt and deprivation. Disappointment, loneliness, frustration and stress take a high toll on people's physical and mental health.  They can even impact people's ability to function at work and school.  Individuals also fail to have a good relationship with themselves and the world as it is.  Depression, anxiety, panic, phobias, anger, compulsions, addictions and attention problems are practically epidemic in our society.  Dealing with emotions in self-defeating ways is common and psychological trauma is more widespread than people recognize. 

Fortunately, scientific research and knowledge have been proliferating in the past few decades, helping us to understand the brain, the mind and their interplay with human relationships.  We know now, more than ever before, how to prevent and heal the trauma that is at the base of most of the above-mentioned conditions.  Also, mental health and marriage and family practitioners have been learning how to help couples create a safe haven for each other and their children. 

In her book, Peace in the Heart and Home, author Charlette Mikulka, LCSW provides a clear and accessible overview of the dynamics that overwhelm the average person, couple and family.  The book takes the mystery out of their struggles.  It then provides a wide array of effective skills, resources and methods for managing emotions, healing trauma, building self-awareness and fostering effective and fulfilling relationships.

Article 9:  350 words
Most people find it very difficult to manage relationships and the emotions they provoke. Instead of home being a place of peace, it is too often a source of hurt and deprivation. Disappointment, loneliness, fear, frustration and stress take a high toll on people’s functioning and quality of life. Marital discord and family conflict prevent family members from experiencing a safe haven. As a result, depression, anxiety, panic, phobias, compulsions, addictions and attention problems are practically epidemic in our society. It is common for the average person to turn to medications and over-the-counter substances to manage a wide range of physical and emotional symptoms. Serious health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, irritable bowel syndrome, obesity, sleep disorders, migraines, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue interfere with feelings of competence, self-worth and peace.

Fortunately, scientific research and knowledge have been proliferating in the past few decades, helping us to understand the brain, attachment relationships and their interplay with physical and mental health. We now know how to prevent and heal the relationship trauma that is at the root of most of the above-mentioned conditions. Also, mental health and marriage and family practitioners have been learning how to help couples create secure attachment bonds with each other and their children. Peace in the Heart and Home provides a clear and accessible overview of the dynamics that overwhelm the average person, couple and family. It takes the mystery out of their struggles.

The book by clinical social worker Charlette Mikulka provides abundant, explicit advice and a wide array of effective skills, resources and methods for managing emotions, healing trauma, building self-awareness and fostering effective and fulfilling relationships. Peace in the Heart and Home is the manual on life and relationships that so many have been wishing they had. A multitude of memorable anecdotes, metaphors and quotations bring the material to life and will resonate with readers’ most meaningful experiences. This book will also benefit helping professionals as they develop a deeper understanding of the most powerful dynamics and practices that foster wellbeing.

 One-Stop Shopping Handbook for Life From Kittacanoe Press
 Provides Wisdom and Practical Help


Even Those Who Have Struggled for Decades are Capable of Evolving
From Surviving to Thriving

NEWTON, New Jersey -- According to Charlette Mikulka, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and author of Peace in the Heart and Home, "Just because suffering physically, mentally and in our relationships is widespread doesn't make it inevitable." With anxiety, depression, compulsions, recurrent and chronic physical complaints and marital distress running rampant, the average person is desperately in need of sound guidance. Mikulka's newly-released book, subtitled: A Down-to-Earth Guide to Creating a Better Life for You and Your Loved Ones, provides thorough explanations, practical solutions and inspiration.

"I wanted to create a resource that would clearly spell-out the common denominators of all these diverse problems," Mikulka says. "This book provides explicit direction based on what has been proven to be effective in creating long-lasting, genuine wellbeing and secure relationships." Peace in the Heart and Home contains abundant help in the form of real-life stories, memorable language, essential skills, transformative therapeutic methods and seasoned advice. 

Elana Katz, LCSW, LMFT, senior faculty member of the Ackerman Institute for the Family, has described Peace in the Heart and Home as "a one-stop shopping handbook for life...folksy, straight-talking...a wise and comforting hand." The newly-released book is available in three formats: paperback, downloadable ebook and MP3 audiobook, read by the author.

According to Mikulka, "People are looking for peace and happiness in all the wrong places. They end up spinning their wheels and feeling exhausted. When those who struggle are parents, their children breathe in the stress and pain and inherit the legacy. Yet this is a wonderful time to be alive because clinicians and their clients are benefitting from the cross-pollination between scientific research, clinical practice and ages-old wisdom traditions. We are now able to replace futile branch trimming with deep and powerful natural methods that go right to the roots of human suffering. No matter how bad things may be, we all possess an inherent capacity to heal and feel fully alive." 

Charlette Mikulka is a psychotherapist in private practice with thirty years of professional social work experience. She and her husband have been together four decades and they have two grown sons.

Kittacanoe Press  Releases Book That Helps Keep Love Alive

 

     Peace in the Heart and Home Shows Readers the Way to Security and Thriving 

NEWTON, New Jersey--What do chocolates, flowers, jewelry, dining out and rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic have in common? All of them will not prevent the demise of something that initially appears awesome and invulnerable. So says psychotherapist Charlette Mikulka, LCSW, author of Peace in the Heart and Home: A Down-to-Earth Guide to Creating a Better Life for You and Your Loved Ones. All she has learned has convinced her that, as time goes by, couples inevitably encounter dangerous waters. Her book is jam-packed with explanations, solutions and hope.

Mikulka advises, “In order to keep a relationship from stagnating, going sour or sinking, people have to be wide awake and emotionally intelligent. There is no way a couple and the family they create together are going to prosper unless the adults are skilled in handling emotions. The average couple relies on fight, flight or freeze when difficult feelings get triggered, which undermines each other’s sense of security.”

According to Mikulka, statistics focus on divorce rates, but even when couples stay together for decades, the question still remains, “How secure and fulfilling has the relationship been?” Mikulka says, “Longevity doesn’t mean much if the partners feel tense, lonely, stifled, misunderstood, deprived, disrespected or rejected.” Fortunately, new understanding about what creates strong relationship bonds is resulting in many couples finding the love they thought was lost forever. 

Mikulka’s lifework has been devoted to studying what makes individuals, couples and families fail, thrive or merely survive. Her learning stems not only from her work as a mental health and couples therapist, but as someone who has reflected deeply on her own experiences as a child, wife and parent. She says, “I’ve discovered a great deal from my personal and professional experience and believe my book can spare others much confusion and suffering.

  • Elana Katz, LCSW, LMFT, senior faculty member of the Ackerman Institute for the Family, describes Peace in the Heart and Home as “a one-stop shopping handbook for life…folksy, straight-talking…a wise and comforting hand.”
  • Alan S. Gurman, PhD, Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine considers the book to be “a highly readable, accessible and very practical guide to living a more emotionally fulfilling life, both with oneself and in relationships.”
  • George Faller, LMFT, Director of the New York Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy, says Peace in the Heart and Home is "a profoundly important book...The true life stories of people courageously confronting their fears to claim their universal right to love and connection are an inspiration to all readers...delivers much-needed healing and will likely change the lives of many." 
  • Paul Gilbert, PhD, author of The Compassionate Mind believes Mikulka’s book is “deeply insightful and compassionate…a book of wisdom and immense helpfulness…uplifting and empowering.”   

Peace in the Heart and Home takes the mystery out of physical and emotional distress and relationship drama. The book then presents a wide array of effective skills, resources and methods for managing emotions, healing trauma, cultivating mindfulness and fostering effective and fulfilling relationships. Written in vivid language, Peace in the Heart and Home offers a wealth of explicit guidance.

Charlette Mikulka is a psychotherapist in private practice with thirty years of professional social work experience. She and her husband have raised two children, and after forty years of life’s ups and downs, love and care for each other. Peace in the Heart and Home is available in paperback, downloadable ebook and an MP3 audiobook read by the author. Further information can be obtained at www.peaceintheheartandhome.com.
