“Say Goodbye to Crazy” to Be Released for Pre-order on Valentines Day

February 14, 2015 2 comments

say goodbye to crazySay Goodbye to Crazy, a new book co-authored by Paul Elam and me, Dr Tara J. Palmatier, will be released for pre-order on Saturday, February 14, 2015 on amazon.com.

If you or your current partner have a high-conflict ex that puts the cray in cray-cray, this book is a must read for you. There is no nonsense, no negotiating with Crazy, no psychobabble and no BS. This may literally be the first self-help book in history that actually offers help, if you are prepared to set and enforce boundaries and deliver natural consequences to Crazy for using your shared children as weapons and pawns and for continuing to rob you of your peace and happiness.

Say Goodbye to Crazy walks you through the process of identifying and protecting yourself from that meddling and destructive owner of the golden uterus, unaffectionately known as Crazy. Not by appeasing her, not by figuring out how to be okay with her narcissistic hijinks, but by leaving such a bad taste in her mouth every time she interferes with your life that she will quickly decide it is time to find someone else to be the recipient of her inner lunatic.

The full release of the book is scheduled for Mother’s Day (how sweet is that), but you will be able to pre-order the ebook on Valentines Day at this LINK.

Please follow this site, AVoiceforMen.com and our podcast, Going Mental, for all the details.

Going Mental with Dr Tara Palmatier and Paul Elam: Abusive Women, Smart Men, Bad Choices

March 19, 2014 4 comments

Going Mental 01Whatever your feelings about relationships, there is no doubt that men’s lives with women can be both crazy and comical — sometimes both at the same time, sometimes not.

For a thousand arguable reasons, it is our relationship lives where logic often goes out the window and all things limbic have a way of taking over. That is true for both sexes, and it can have not only a profound impact on mental health, but on the lives of the people involved.

The world spends a nauseating amount of time obsessing on women’s experience in this area. But, at the risk of sounding cliché, what about the men?

While more people are becoming aware of men’s issues, they still suffer neglect.

Responding to that deficit is the aim of a new live Google Hangout with Dr. Tara Palmatier and Paul Elam, “Going Mental,” a program about how men experience modern relationships, good, bad or indifferent. The show debuts today, Wednesday, March 19 at 1 PM Pacific, 3 Central and 4 Eastern Time on Shrink4Men and on AVoiceforMen.

The first program will include a brief discussion about the show, followed by a discussion between Paul and Dr. T on the reasons so many men make themselves unnecessarily vulnerable, emotionally and legally, to women; the failure of many men to establish and hold fast to limits with what they will tolerate, and why all of this happens.

We are also going to focus on what can be done about it.

Please feel free to join us as we explore the side of men that most people know about but few discuss. You can watch the show live in the viewer below or at a later time that is more convenient for you.

For those who like to download podcasts to listen to on your commutes or at the gym, you will be able to do so on the Live365 AVoiceforMen Channel.
