Untangling you: How can I be grateful when I feel so resentful?

This book is the first to investigate the dynamic relationship between gratitude and resentment. Each chapter provides meaningful and practical ways of loosening the toxic hold of resentment and the vital and powerful role gratitude plays in this process. You will explore gratitude practices that can help you untangle your everyday resentments, including those arising from betrayal, broken expectations, ageism, perfectionism, and workplace conflict. You will discover how gratitude can lead you to experience greater peace of mind, better health, and improved relationships in ways you never thought or realised were possible.

“This is a wise and practical book, the fruit of decades of thoughtful research and experience. There are not many people who could rightly decide to do without it.”

Margaret Visser

Gratitude in Education:
A Radical View

At a time when many of us are looking for new paradigms that can lead to an increase in our care of the environment and each other, this book offers a perspective that places education at the heart of positive change in areas of global significance. The first full text to explore the role of gratitude in teaching and learning, this book has guided the thinking and practice of leaders, educators, and professionals in other fields, because it speaks to the everyday concerns in ways that are practical and to the heart. It answers the question of how to practise gratitude in time-poor, stressful, toxic, and competitive environments to help readers to cultivate a rich inner and outer life.

“Howells writes with educators in mind, but Gratitude in Education is accessible to anyone interested in developing a way of seeing and being that humbly, authentically, and actively gives thanks for gifts received.”

Professor Susan E Carlson
Educational Leadership and Teacher Education, Multnomah University, Portand, Oregon.
