Dr. Kelly Rabenstein-Donohoe
Non-fiction: How-To
Ever wonder what The No.1. key ingredient to a quality life is? We’re talking…in your personal and business life, academia or higher education . . . the world! It’s simple. But it’s not easy (to obtain, that is): Emotional Success. And, according to author Dr. Kelly Rabenstein-Donohoe in Psychological Secrets for Emotional Success, Emotional Success depends on Better (and real!) Connections. Here is the formula: Awareness + Education + Empathy = Emotional Success. Dr.Donohoe’s motto: Connect Better. Be Better.

PSYCHOLOGICAL SECRETS FOR EMOTIONAL SUCCESS (73,635—first draft) is a SELF-HELP BOOK that is a recipe to make better connections. Dr. Donohoe has been a therapist for over 20 years. What she knows is that pain comes largely from disconnection. Human beings are wired to be together. Social distancing lays bare the need we have for closeness, for connecting. In Psychological Secrets for Emotional Success Dr. Donohoe wants to help people feel and be the best they can. This means connecting with others.

Dr. Donohoe has spent two decades sitting with patients, hearing their stories, exploring their emotions. She moves with them as they pass through the intensity of their lives. Desire for connection, she says, is at the center of everything. When we connect, it gives us purpose and meaning. Psychological Secrets, is meant as a balm, she tells us. Written in a chatty conversational and intimate style—with plenty of exercises throughout the book— Psychological Secrets, will help the reader move from feeling alone to feeling and being connected. The book fills a gap in the self-help oeuvre and melds psychological science written by an expert with mainstream ideas such as EQ and bias awareness. What Donohoe has learned in her academic training, as a scholar, therapist, teacher, woman, feminist, lover, parent, eater, human being—is all wrapped up in these pages. She offers data, anecdotes, information, exercises, and stories as a way of helping the reader connect with themselves and the world around them.

Psychological Secrets for Emotional Success is a book written with insight, humor, and no small amount of common sense.
