Discover the deliciously dark and fantastically funny No. 1 bestseller about a woman living life rather too well and being whisked away from it all, from the No. 1 bestselling author of Grown Ups 'Gloriously funny' SUNDAY TIMES ___________ 'How did it end up like this? Twenty-seven, unemployed, mistaken for a drug addict, in a treatment centre in the back arse of nowhere with an empty Valium bottle in my knickers . . .' Meet Rachel Walsh. She's been living it up in New York City, spending her nights talking her way into glamorous parties before heading home in the early hours to her hot boyfriend Luke. But her sensible older sister showing up and sending her off to actual rehab wasn't quite part of her plan. She's only agreed to her incarceration because she's heard that rehab is wall-to-wall jacuzzis, gymnasiums and rock stars going cold turkey - plus it's about time she had a holiday. Saying goodbye to fun will be hard. But not as hard as losing the man who she realises, all too late, might just be the love of her life . . . _________ 'A born storyteller' Independent on Sunday 'The voice of a generation' Daily Mirror Praise for Marian Keyes: 'Comic, convincing and true' Guardian 'Mercilessly funny' The Times 'Funny, tender and completely absorbing!'

Here is the first major work that examines the benefits of applying social understanding to addiction. The author demonstrates how a social perspective shifts the paradigm from viewing a person in terms of "particles" to viewing a person in terms of relationships. This reorientation creates promising new opportunities for intervention. The book discusses recent advances in theories on community capacity building, resilience, and social ecology alongside their practical applications. Written in an engaging style, the book features numerous vignettes, key points, and illustrations that help you apply the material in your own practice.

Desire in the broadest sense, as a form of generous self-assertion should ideally increase with the passage of time as we gradually acquire deeper insight into ourselves and others. Prescriptive cultural stereotypes, however, put obstacles on our path to progress as individuation. Yet growing older should not entail renunciation of the singularity of personal fulfilment. This volume is a collection of literary testimonies to the power of art to challenge and resist the social constraints on desire in the context of aging. In the essays, men and women claim their right to age in desire and imaginative vigour.
MARIAN KEYES—RACHEL'S HOLIDAY Rachel's Holiday is not an
autobiography but a fictional account of a twentyseven-year-old Irish girl's
addicted life in New York City and her two-month stay in a rehab in her home
country of Ireland.

Media portrayals and diagnostic criteria convey an image of an addicted person as someone whose deficient coping skills and severely compromised functioning are readily apparent. Yet addictions remain some of the most frequently missed diagnoses in health and mental health care settings. This occurs, in large part, because most people with addictions do not fit the stereotype. In the context of psychotherapy, the typical patient with an addiction will present depression, anxiety, marital problems or a general sense that life is not working. This book addresses how addictions can be recognized more often and accurately assessed in the context of psychotherapy. Along with learning about the standard assessment instruments, the reader is introduced to methods for asking the appropriate questions and listening to the clinical dialogue for signs of a undisclosed addiction. This book provides a great deal of knowledge about addictions and their assessment in a way that is relevant to clinical practice.
RACHEL'S HOLIDAY by Marian Keyes There is no better book out there about
addiction than RACHEL'S HOLIDAY. The fact that it's one of the funniest books
you'll ever read doesn't detract in the slightest from the seriousness of the subject

Dive into Mammy Walsh's A-Z of the Walshes with this laugh-out-loud ebook-only short guide to everyone's favourite dysfunctional Irish family 'Marian Keyes: what a genius' DAILY MAIL ________ It does exactly what it says on the tin, but here's a brief word from its author, Mammy Walsh herself: "There's this woman I know from bridge, Mona Hopkins, a lovely woman she is, even if I must admit I'm not that keen on her myself, and she said a great thing the other day. I was expecting her to say "Two no trumps," but instead she comes out with a saying about her children. She says, "Boys wreck your house and girls wreck your head." Isn't that a marvellous bit of wisdom - "Boys wreck your house and girls wreck your head!" And God knows it's the truest thing I've heard in a long time. I should know. I have five girls. Five daughters. And let me tell you, my head is wrecked from them. Although, now that I think of it, so is my house . . ." Mammy Walsh's A-Z of the Walshes is the perfect re-introduction to the beloved Walsh family, featured in Marian's bestselling novels about the Walsh sisters: Watermelon, Rachel's Holiday, Angels, Anybody Out There and The Mystery of Mercy Close.
