Toxic Encounters: Why People Pursue Rebound Relationships, Part I

Description

The vision of Toxic Encounters: Why People Pursue Rebound Relationships is to discourage rebounding and entering rebound relationships. Toxic Encounters provides appropriate research on the topic of rebounding used as a coping strategy and explores how it guides activities in the dating marketplace.

Rebounding and rebound relationships tear at the very fabric of one’s personality and belief system. In fact, rebound relationships challenge traditional belief systems and they promote a more unstable view of romantic relationships and love.

This book encourages the reader to take time for healing before entering another relationship. Contrary to what many people say, it is okay not to be in a relationship. It is okay to be in a relationship with one’s self for a season, so one can discover his or her own hidden treasures and value. When one can do that each person will be able to discover what is not in another person and if that absence is a deal breaker.  

Lastly, this book encourages the reader to examine their zeal, their enthusiasm. Coverage of this topic is based on what has been written in the psychology literature and inclusion of ideas that promote life recovery from the author’s position. Romantic relationships can be wonderful, and they can also be deadly.

Life recovery from toxic encounters requires self-reflection and self-assessment before re-entering the competitive mating marketplace. It is my hope and appeal to the reader to pursue productive life choices. God bless you. Thank you for purchasing and reading this book.

Toxic Encounters: Adult Attachment & the Problem With Rebounding, Part II

Description

Toxic Encounters: Adult Attachment & the Problem with Rebounding helps you to understand how you become and continually remain attached to a person who has no respect for you or your standard. This book also helps you to understand how you abandon your own standard through logical reasoning. We reason many things about the relationships we enter.

We always enter relationships of any kind with the best intentions, never believing that we may contribute to the mistreatment and mishandling of our hearts. We never assume that we have a part to play into how someone “does us wrong.” We just assume that if the person did us wrong, then that person alone is the culprit.

Toxic Encounters: Adult Attachment & the Problem with Rebounding serves as Part II in the Bait, Hook & Switch series. It comes directly after Toxic Encounters: Why People Pursue Rebound Relationships. The first book explores my revelations about rebound relationships and the concept of rebounding, and I mirror the structuring of the book using basic textbook principles.

I want readers to learn about the concept of rebounding. Baiting, hooking, and switching are all defined within multiple aspects of the rebounding process. The book largely focuses the discussion on how the rebounder “porns” the rebound relationship. Inevitably, creating an exit plan becomes the primary goal. The first book essentially serves as an education tool.

In contrast, the central theme of Toxic Encounters: Adult Attachment & the Problem with Rebounding is adult attachment in rebound relationships. The book explores rebound relationships as representing one of multiple romantic relationship styles, characterized as deficient in relationship quality, and as one that falls under the insecure attachment style concept postulated within John Bowlby’s work titled The Making and Breaking of Affectional Bonds.

In the book, Bowlby suggests that when infants are separated from their primary caregivers, they go through three major phases: protest, despair, and detachment. Definition of these phases are further considered in the first chapter.

To be sure, Bowlby’s concepts are not fully explored in this book because the ideas here are suitable for a discussion about rebounders using rebounds as substitutionary caregivers or rebound mothers. This is a discussion best appropriate for a future scholarly book.

Toxic Encounters: Why You Should Go No Contact, Post-Rebounding, Part III

Description

Toxic Encounters: Why You Should Go No Contact, Post-Rebounding is the third part in the Bait, Hook & Switch series. The central theme of the work­ is predicated on the answer to the following question: Where do I go from here?

Many people struggle with transitioning out of an abusive relationship and into a more fruitful life. They want to let go of someone who is using them or not treating them fairly, but they do not know how to approach the task. No one wants to feel as if he or she is a rebound. No one wakes up in the morning and says, “My goal today is to become a rebound and let my rebounder use me and do with me whatever he or she feels.” No one grows up wanting to become a prostitute or a pimp or a drug dealer or a liar or a murderer.

We all observe and learn different behaviors by watching people make life happen for themselves. To be someone’s rebound is to say that you are only worthy of navigating your life in a graveyard, in quicksand, without ever the possibility of leaving your emotional ditch.

This book will help you to assess your current rebound relationship, recognize the dangers it poses to your life, create a first-line defense system, establish a transition plan to exit the relationship, and task manage the exit from the relationship.

Toxic Encounters: When They See You As 7/8, A Case Study

Description

This case study[1] briefly explores the mating market along with mate poaching and offers a case description on the ranking 7/8, which ultimately prepares you for understanding the dynamics of the mating market.

This case study explores three reasons why a potential romantic partner might perceive you as a 7/8 within the mating market:

  • Reason #1: You’re An Alternative
  • Reason #2: You’re Not Competitive
  • Reason #3: You May Be a Rebound

[1] This case study is housed in Toxic Encounters: Why People Pursue Rebound Relationships. It functions as a chapter.

Toxic Encounters: 5/6, 7/8, 9/10: Which One Has High Value? A Case Study

Description

This case study[1] explores the concept of mate value within the mating market context, which is further discussed in a subsequent chapter. Mate value is a perception of one’s self in comparison to others; this is self-perception. It is also a global view of beauty and physical attractiveness; this is social perception. Mate value influences mate retention behaviors, mate preferences, mate suitability, and mate replaceability. This case study explores these concepts.

Setback Books & Pricing

Overcoming Setback

Overcoming Setback: Five Keys for Entering & Exiting Correction

Description

The title explores overcoming life’s little setbacks, focusing primarily on the importance of moving out of survival mode and into life recovery by adopting the Seven Stages of Setback outlined in the book.

Overcoming Setback Workbook: Processing Towards Life Recovery

Description

Overcoming Setback Workbook: Processing Towards Life Recovery is a companion to the main title Overcoming Setback: Five Keys for Entering and Exiting Correction. The workbook is a useful tool for helping people reflect on those areas of setback that have been a struggle. One of the obvious desires we have when we are in setback is the desire to get out of it quickly and move on with our lives.

We feel we do not have the time to address the setback. The problem with this desire is that until you address your setback, you are doomed to repeat the patterns that led to the setback. You are in setback for a reason, and it is important to discover that reason.

Overcoming Setback Workbook is a handy self-reflection, practical tool that helps you to acknowledge and resolve one or more setbacks in your life. Exiting setback begins with acknowledgement, and you cannot change what you do not acknowledge. This means that you must acknowledge the failure connected to the setback. Failure precedes setback. Missed instruction precedes failure. Once you can understand what you missed, how it contributed to the failure, and how both led to setback, then you will be able to get back on the path you are supposed to be on and move forward.

Overcoming Setback Workbook includes a Sample Life Plan.

Sample Life Plans & Workbooks

Favors Sample Life Plan: Using Psychology, SWOT, & SMART to Measure Financial Progress

Description

Favors Sample Life Plan is a book about helping you understand and close the gaps in your knowledge base concerning the proper use of money, finances, and financial management. I wish we all could be great money and financial managers, but this may not be the capacity for everyone. Until you can address your own adult complicity with bad financial decision-making, you will never move forward. Reflection always begins with assessing the environment that nurtured your thinking.

Favors Sample Life Plan Workbook: A Case Study for Addressing Chronic Homelessness

Description

Favors Sample Life Plan Workbook: A Case Study for Addressing Chronic Homelessness is an extension of the Overcoming Setback Series and Life Recovery Series that focus on encouraging readers to address their behavior behind the setback and recover from negative decision-making, respectively.

Favors Sample Life Plan Workbook creates the Homeless Recovery Series and addresses a target audience struggling to overcome a life setback involving the behavioral aspects of chronic homelessness. Any individual who continues to remain chronically homeless is headed for a perpetual setback without intervention. Chronic homelessness is a life failure that requires multiple processes to exit. Without pursuit of recovery, it would be difficult for the individual to be emotionally, psychologically, spiritually, and financially stable, in perpetuity.

Chronically homeless people must believe that they are worthy of recovery. They must envision recovery. They must envision returning to their tent, examining it, assessing their situation, grieving over their contribution, and saying to themselves, “It’s time to get up.” It is time to pick up one’s tent and walk.

NOTE:

All books under the Favors Life Recovery Coaching Curriculum are undergoing final editing and minor revision. All books and companion resources will be available on Amazon by end of April 2022. Timeline is subject to change based on capacity and volume expectations.
