Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood : Novel, A by Rebecca Wells( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Siddalee Walker, oldest daughter of Vivi Abbott Walker, Ya-Ya extraordinaire, is interviewed in the New York Times about a hit play she's directed, her mother gets described as a "tap-dancing child abuser." Enraged, Vivi disowns Sidda. Devastated, Sidda begs forgiveness, and postpones her upcoming wedding. All looks bleak until the Ya-Yas step in and convince Vivi to send Sidda a scrapbook of their girlhood mementos, called "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood." As Sidda struggles to analyze her mother, she comes face to face with the tangled beauty of imperfect love, and the fact that forgiveness, more than understanding, is often what the heart longs for. Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood may call to mind Prince of Tides in its unearthing of family darkness; in its unforgettable heroines and irrepressible humor and female loyalty, it echoes Fannie Flagg's Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe
A multi-method study of the role of alexithymia and emotion self-awareness in couples' social support by Rebecca Wells( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The overarching goal of the present study was to examine associations between measures of alexithymia (i.e., difficulty identify and describing one's feelings) and perceptions of social support receipt and provision in a romantic context. The sample consisted of 69 heterosexual couples in long-term committed relationships. Both partners completed self-report and performance-based measures of alexithymia as well as self-report measures of received, provided and expected social support from their romantic partners. The self-report (TAS-20) and performance-based (CEAS) alexithymia measures were weakly correlated and did not demonstrate similar patterns in association with social support variables. TAS-20 scores were associated with self- and partner-reported received and provided supports, as well as self-reported satisfaction with support, but these associations were not replicated with the CEAS. Partners' scores on the CEAS interacted to predict expected support in a given interaction such that individuals high in emotion self-awareness reported expecting less emotional support from partners who were low in emotion self-awareness than from partners high in emotion self-awareness. There was a similar trend for TAS-20 scores. Overall, the results suggest that the TAS-20 is better conceptualized as a measure of alexithymic self-schema rather than of skill deficits and that perceived deficits in emotional functioning are associated with perceptions of social support. The results also have implications for understanding the role of alexithymia in social support and suggest that it warrants attention in couples' therapy focused on support related issues. Future research should examine how an alexithymic self-schema develops and investigate the role of motivation in emotion self-awareness
