“Rogers made history.” —Sports Illustrated Robbie Rogers knows better than most that keeping secrets can crush you. But for much of his life Robbie lived in paralyzing fear that sharing his big secret would cost him the love of his family and his career as a professional soccer player. So he never told anyone what was destroying his soul, both on and off the field. While the world around Robbie was changing with breathtaking speed, he knew that for a gay man playing a professional team sport it might as well be 1958. He could be a professional soccer player. Or he could be an out gay man. He couldn’t do both. Then last year, at the age of twenty-five and after nearly stepping away from a brilliant career—one that included an NCAA Championship, winning the MLS Cup, and competing in the Olympics—he chose to tell the truth. But instead of facing the rejection he feared, he was embraced—by his family, by his teammates, and his fans. In Coming Out to Play, Robbie takes readers on his incredible journey from terrified teenager to a trailblazing out and proud professional soccer player for the L.A. Galaxy, who has embraced his new identity as a role model and champion for those still struggling with the secrets that keep them from living their dreams. From the Trade Paperback edition.

A collection of essays and articles written over a 30 year span by a seasoned sandplay therapist. When Pixies Come Out to Play: A Play Therapy Primer is the work of a true master of the craft of sandplay therapy informed by Jungian theory and the pioneering work of Dora Kallf with whom Lois Carey studied. Woven into the exquisite tapestry of this lovely book is history and theory of the method, rich case material told in a warm and moving voice which reflects the extraordinary empathy of this remarkable sandplay and play therapist . . . A wealth of information packed into a highly readable book that just like the author herself will be a cherished gift to us all for a long time to come. —David A. Crenshaw, Ph.D., ABPP, RPT-S Clinical Director "The metaphor that comes to mind as I read this book is that of the aboriginal painting—a large canvas of lots of varied sized and colored dots which represents a map of the territory. This book provides an extensive map of the territory, that is Play Therapy, Child Therapy and sand play as it applies to children, with a particular Jungian slant. I would recommend this to practitioners and students who can learn from its wisdom." —Aideen Taylor de Faoite, author of Narrative Play Therapy: Theory and Practice. "When Pixies Come Out to Play is a wonderful book for any clinician who uses creative mediums in their therapeutic work. It is a book that provides a back drop to understanding art therapy, play therapy and sandplay from a Jungian perspective. It provides a history and theoretical framework to create context and a lens to view the work through." —Majella Ryan, Biodynamic and Integrative Psychotherapist, Child Psychotherapist.

A weekend was for the sole purpose of a bike ride. Read the book for a funny take on yesterday, mixed with some tips on the activities and games of way back when.
