Therapy with a psychologist provides guidance to deal with distressing life events and the overwhelming emotions accompanying them. Individuals sometimes are confronted with loneliness and stress, which can result in feelings of dislocation, decreasing social contacts and troubled, interpersonal relationships.
Dr. Wendy James is a proponent for early diagnosis and treatment of psychological issues. Coping with issues in their early stages may prevent the development or continuation of harmful behavior.
Unlike adults, who are more able to express and explore their feelings, children are at greater risk of developmental problems that may become harmfully expressed as they mature. A relatively simple psychological evaluation of a child may have a positive long-term impact upon a child’s future happiness and secure place in our society.
Hey, girlfriends! This guide will help you learn about who’s a knight in shining armor—and who’s a frog.
The Princess Chronicles is a quick, provocative read that will get readers’ attention whether they agree with James’s perspective or not. Some will find their blood boiling over advice that flies in the face of modern feminism, while others will find themselves nodding in agreement with James’s observations.
Wendy James would like to explain a few things about men and women and why she believes the fairy tales had it right: each gender has something special—and very different—to offer. Or, as she so colorfully puts it, men are frogs, and women are princesses. In The Princess Chronicles: A Bedside Companion, James shares her provocative point of view in a chatty, we’ll-be-best-friends-forever style. The self-confident self-help maven explains that she not only rejects the notion that men and women are essentially the same, but she prefers it this way and thinks we should, too…then James makes a limited move to professional topics, reminding us that “men have no problem with successful women”.
Addressing her readers as “girlfriends,” James establishes a friendly but tutorial tone early on. She’s your friend, yes, but also your teacher. She’s here to tell you, for instance, how women corner the market on guilt, why men have a need to fix things, and how to keep the sexual spark between the two alive.

The Gap: A Scholarly Perspective of Executive Women
Dr. Wendy James
Dr. James’s relevant and useful research on women in leadership roles is thoroughly supported.
The Gap: A Scholarly Perspective of Executive Women, by Dr. Wendy James, is a detailed research study that examines how women experience the intersection of career, marriage, and family.
This topic is incredibly relevant: as the number of women in leadership roles grows, so too does the interest in understanding the effects of their professional success. James examines previous research theories (such as spillover theory) and societal patterns (such as the rise of dual-income families), and she examines interviewees’ responses through these lenses.
James shares six themes about executive women’s lives that were revealed through her research, one being that careers have a positive influence on self, marriage, and children. These themes overturn the “assumption of conflict” that forms the basis for preceding theories—and make the results of the research all the more important.
The participant interview transcripts in the appendix are the most engaging part of the text for nonacademic readers. Executive women themselves will find the final chapter, “Summary, Conclusions, and Recommendations,” most relevant.
