The Christmas Spryte Encounter: Picture with Santa

Author Introduces Ella S. Pluck To The Younger Audience!

WILLARD, MISSOURI, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 20, 2018 / — Do you recall the children’s books that changed your kid’s life? What about the Christmas stories that your family enjoyed? Author Nanette Crighton writes another story, a new favorite that would pour into the hearts of the children and give a lesson about conquering fear – The Christmas Spryte Encounter: Picture with Santa.

The Christmas Spryte Encounter: Picture with Santa introduces the character of a young boy who encounters a dilemma each year, as he must get his picture taken with Santa. The growing uneasiness of the boy triggers a tiny elf to pay him a visit. Ella S. Pluck comes to rescue the boy and helps him conquer his fear. She extends help by giving the boy a list of things that he can do to divert his attention to reduce his anxiety. In return, the boy gets a valuable present from Ella if he focuses and thinks of her. The name “Pluck” suits Ella as she shows how she can effectively take away the boy’s fear.

Dr. Crighton’s new book teaches the younger audience that fear has no hold over anyone and that parents need to understand that they play Ella S. Pluck’s part in the lives of their children. Everyone is invited to a magical reading, a sensible journey of having enough courage to overcome fear. Another must-read source by Dr. Crighton!

About the Author:
Dr. M. Nanette Crighton often ends up in charge without intentionally seeking a position of leadership. Her big-picture thinking, endearing qualities and willingness to set an example simply compel others to follow.

“I can delegate tasks making people feel empowered rather than imposed upon,” says Crighton, the medical director and owner of Crighton Aesthetic Studio. “I make a point to recognize contributions by others in a genuine way, and I make certain that I do my share of the least favorable job.”

Author Shares The Highlights Of His Life Being An Artist

Best of Ken Jackson

Author Shares The Highlights Of His Life Being An Artist

MADISON, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 20, 2018 / — Being an artist means healing ones injury and at the same time endlessly exposing them. Thus, musician and writer Ken Jackson brings his best creation to the readers – Best of Ken Jackson.

His book entitled Best of Ken Jackson discloses his triumphs, failures and everything in between in all those years. He shares his experiences when he started playing guitar and bass in high school and writing poems that flourished in his English class. Jackson’s write-up, “let’s blow up the rotten school and build ourselves a swimming pool” ignited a commotion as everyone thought of it as a threat – like a bomb threat at present, so to say.

In 1985, Kenneth Jackson recorded with a famous producer, the same person who produced Nirvana’s Neverworld. His timeline included a twenty-year sentence for a crime, but this did not hinder him from pursuing his passion. His poetry writing was honed by enrolling a course in creative writing, which at the same time served as his therapy while he was in the institution. When released in 1999, he put out a bunch of rock and roll albums and started recording his life through writing his own book titles.

The author shares his life experiences in detailed. Each section of his writing highlights events that people and artists like him can relate themselves. The author invites everyone to read his book as he shares positivity amidst the struggles that life gave him. Truly, the life of Jackson is an art and art is his life.

About the Author:
I started off as a musician in high school, playing guitar and bass. Coming out of high school, I knew some of my own songs as well as those of other artists. I didn't start writing poems for a while though-except in high school for English class, when I wrote a poem that said, "Let's blow up the rotten school and build ourselves a swimming pool," which raised an issue at school similar to bomb threats in this day and age. Then there was this dirty poem I wrote in my early twenties. But I was still writing songs then. I took some college courses in jazz, piano, songwriting, and creative writing. Back in 1985, I recorded with a famous producer. Butch Vig produced Nevermind by Nirvana, a number-one album of the year in the early nineties. Then, in 1986, I started a twenty-year sentence for a crime. That's when I started writing poetry. I took a course in creative writing from UW–Extension. I wrote a few poems and people liked them, so I wrote more. There came a time when I used poetry as therapy. I would write two poems for every two weeks. And that beats writer's block. A lot of that stuff is in the book Best of Ken Jackson. I was released in '99 and put out a bunch of rock 'n' roll albums. I was also participating in a monthly poetry group for a while. I wrote one section of this book using a variety of student researchers.

SANTUARI RESTAURANT Wins Best of Los Angeles Award- “Best New Restaurant- 2018”

“Live your best life by enjoying bold flavors from our slow roasted short rib, our divine pork belly, or one of our signature desserts.” ~Chef Brendan Mica

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 20, 2018 / — Nestled in the beautiful city of Toluca Lake, SANTUARI RESTAURANT, offering fresh Californian cuisine with delicious Mediterranean accents, wins Best of Los Angeles Award for “Best New Restaurant- 2018,” reveals BoLAA coordinator Aurora DeRose.

“After undergoing two years of upgrades and remodeling, our spectacular restaurant is now open to the public,” announces Santuari’s general manager Kim Gregory. “It’s an amazing space that features separate bar, lounge, and patio menus.”

The newly renovated bar and lounge are highlighted by a specialty cocktail menu, as well as fresh approaches to classic cocktails, craft beers, and a boutique wine list. However, the pièce de résistance remains the decadent, from-scratch menu created by acclaimed Executive Chef Brendan Mica.

“Live your best life by enjoying bold flavors from our slow roasted short rib, our divine pork belly, or one of our signature desserts such as baklava cheesecake with crispy filo, local honey and candied walnuts or our black forest brownie with chocolate ganache and market cherries,” Mica expresses.

“Santuari offers stunning dining and lounging areas and is the perfect way to treat yourself to an amazing lunch. I positively devoured the rib eye steak and paired it with a glass of Merlot. Delicious! This is will now be my go-to spot in LA,” raves Michelle P., a BoLAA member and satisfied diner from Los Angeles, CA.

“The newest winner amongst the 4,000 member “Best of Los Angeles Award” community, Santuari Restaurant truly celebrates the best people, places, and things in Los Angeles,” DeRose concludes. “This is what Los Angeles is all about— delicious diversity and excellence.”

Psychologist Dr. Valerie Kendall to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA, August 20, 2018 / — Psychologist Valerie Kendall, or Dr. Val as she is familiarly known, is an MA, PhD, Registered Therapist with numerous other credentials in her arsenal. She also practices a full complement of modalities, and for clients of all ages. As a certified Play Therapist in both Canada and the U.S.A., she works a lot with children through the medium of play. With many adults she counsels in the field of ADD or addictive behaviors, which include sex addiction, gambling, and The Internet. Regarded as a Substance Abuse Expert, she assesses and counsels people on the abuse of alcohol and drugs. With other adults, she functions as a couples’ counselor. Above all, she is someone who cares, who builds a true relationship with clients and offers the kind of unconditional love that lets them know that even when they feel they are at the most unlovable point in their lives, they still have value.

Dr. Val practices out of two localities 1) The Healing Space, Calgary, and 2) McRae St. Okotoks. She is affiliated with many professional associations in Canada including: CPA, PAA, CCPA, CFCH, (AB.), ACEP. She’s registered and certified with the American Board of Hypnotherapy and the Alberta Hypnotherapy Association. Dr. Val attends workshops and conferences offered by the Rocky Mountain Play Therapy Institute, where she did most of her child therapy training. This led to an invitation to write a chapter in the forthcoming book Turning Points in Play Therapy and The Emergence of Self. Her section recounts one case history that professionals and families will learn from, about when a child in play therapy reveals that first glimmer of hope and progress.

While some of Dr. Val’s therapies correlate to energy and that might seem edgy, she felt that if so many PhDs were involved in an organization like ACEP (Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology), it must be worth investigating. Depending on the client, their interest and mindset, she might use a newer technique like EFT or a more conventional approach like cognitive behavioral therapy When she does apply Emotional Freedom Technique, she’ll introduce the concept of energy flow and tell clients energy is something that exists, but we don’t see it travelling across the air – like the key fob that opens a car door or a cell phone text message. This energy is inside us too, and Dr. Val might tap on acupressure points in the body to release it and rebalance the body.

Dr. Val has lived in England and Canada and was in the education field before she became a therapist, as a resource room teacher and sports coach. She believes the one-to-one rapport she used with students is what helps her reach children today, and to create a sense of respect for people of any age. Being genuine, having positive regard, establishing trust, and empathy for the client are some elements of Carl Rogers’ person-centered approach that inspire congruence with patients. This Carl’s emphasis on the relationship revolutionized the American Psychological approach, which at the time emphasized psychodynamic and behaviorist method. It makes him one of Dr. Val’s idols. Another Carl that influenced her was Carl Jung. She embraces many of his concepts, such as archetypes (inborn tendencies resonating and driving basic human behavior), and his sense of connectedness across our big world– like when a butterfly flaps its wings in Japan and it is felt elsewhere.

Dr. Val says some techniques that work with children can also break through to adults. Someone might be nervous about opening up to a therapist, but when you toss them a ball, or hand them a musical instrument, it’s not formal or intimidating anymore. Still, she has to tell clients things they don’t want to hear, like own up to the consequences of an impulsive choice or negative behavior, or it’s to go off to rehab. She may have to be tough at times, but for the most part she likes to have fun, and loves bringing about change.

CUTV News will feature Dr. Valerie Kendall in an interview with Jim Masters on Wed, Aug 22 at 4:00pm EDT

The Coach For Lawyers John Allison to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

SAN RAFAEL, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 20, 2018 / — The law attracts a certain type of person–driven, ambitious, competitive–but several studies have shown that more than 25 percent of practicing lawyers are stressed out and disillusioned. They are unable to find much personal satisfaction from their work, to say nothing of achieving the elusive work-life balance. They are not happy. In fact, according to a Johns Hopkins University study of more than 100 occupations, researchers found lawyers suffer dramatically elevated levels of clinical depression compared with the general population.

John Allison was fortunate to be one of the exceptions. After a successful and rewarding professional career as a trial lawyer and litigation manager, both in private practice and in-house with a Fortune 100 company, Allison has resolved to share what he’s learned as The Coach for Lawyers, so lawyers can experience the rewards and satisfaction the practice of law can offer.

“It’s easy for lawyers to work themselves to the point where they get totally burned out,” says Allison. “I had other interests outside of the law. If I was in trial, I would work long hours, but generally I would try to avoid working on weekends. I set boundaries around my professional time. I took vacations.”

Allison’s clients often seek guidance when navigating a transition. They might be unhappy in their current role and thinking about changing jobs or they might be wanting to shift from one practice area to another. Allison also helps lawyers deal with difficult people, whether they be colleagues, clients or adversaries. Allison coaches his clients through their process, giving them tools to deal more effectively with the situation they find themselves in.

“I especially enjoy seeing lawyers that I work with as a coach go from an unhappy place to a place where they are enthusiastic about what they’re doing and optimistic about their future,” says Allison.

Allison has also written three books about lawyers, the legal profession and the practice of law: Choosing Your Lawyer: An Insider's Practical Guide to Making a Really Good Choice; Transforming the Practice of Law: Reclaiming the Soul of the Legal Profession; and his most recent book The Art of Practicing Law: A Practical Guide for Lawyers.

“To satisfy your clients you have to understand what the client’s objectives are, how to develop a plan that is consistent with the client’s objectives, not what you want to have happen,” says Allison. “It’s about letting them know that you have their best interests at heart, you’re on their side, and you’re not letting your financial goals or other agenda get in the way. You’re really focusing on the client, I think that’s the key.”

A recent Pew Research Center study showed that 35 percent of the people in the United States believe that lawyers add little or nothing to the value of society. Allison is hoping to change that perception.

“I just really enjoy helping people be the best that they can be,” says Allison. “I can help lawyers enjoy the type of success and rewards that I did. And I’m not just talking about money. I’m talking about personal satisfaction. Practicing law can be a profoundly rewarding experience.”

CUTV News Radio will feature John Allison in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on August 22nd at 2pm EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

Alyson Franz of Paradigm Shift to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

JOHNSTON, RHODE ISLAND, UNITED STATES, August 20, 2018 / — While traditional talk therapy is considered the standard in mental healthcare, rarely does it lead to people completely letting go of their problems. In fact, people will often rehearse their problems instead of letting them go if all they do is talk about them.

Alyson Franz is a bilingual licensed independent clinical social worker and the founder of Paradigm Shift, where she offers transformational healing programs, coaching and therapy, as well as personal growth workshops and programs.

“Paradigm Shift is about transformation,” says Alyson. “It's about being able to let go of whatever is holding you back and stepping into the best version of yourself.”

Alyson specializes in synergetic therapy, a combination of traditional therapies and modern therapy modalities, which includes energy psychology, mindfulness and spirituality.

“We integrate a lot of energy psychology into the traditional healing model because energy psychology actually gets to the root of the problem,” says Alyson. “Everything is energy at its core, including emotions, whatever block or fear or issue that we're having is energetic at its core. We identify what it is, that's affecting the person, whether it be a trauma, a belief, an identity, or fear. There's lots of possibilities of energetically what could be holding people back. We're good at figuring out what that block is and helping them release it.”

According to Alyson, the whole premise of energy psychology is that a disruption in our energy system is the root cause of whatever symptoms we're experiencing: sadness, depression, anxiety and nightmares are just some examples. That energetic charge is what we need to clear.

“I don't just want to be a good therapist, I want to help people tap into their unlimited potential, because we all have this potential, but very few of us use it. Once you start letting go of your blocks life can become amazing. I’ve seen people make unbelievable changes in their lives.”

Many people have experienced trauma or other life events that led them to feeling stuck, unhappy and unfulfilled. Alyson was that person. She knew that life was meant to be happy and there was a way she could completely heal, but she had no idea what it would take.

“Synergetic therapy was a big part of my healing process,” says Alyson. “I feel like I've been very thorough on the work on myself, so it's very easy for me to help people get insight into what's going on for them. And after we identify the block we clear it from their system. And we all have a lot more blocks than we think we do. People are frequently surprised by how many blocks they actually have.!”

As for the future, Alyson plans to expand Paradigm Shift’s model and serve as a light for the community and help clients awaken to their full potential.

CUTV News Radio will feature Alyson Franz in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on August 22nd at 12pm EDT and with Jim Masters on August 29th at 12pm EDT.
