About the Book

OMG! I’m the Grown-Up! gives care-givers an innovative strategy for managing the interpersonal dynamics of giving-care she calls the Praxis for Care. This book presents the Praxis for Care as a strategy that guides care-givers toward taking actions that are satisfying to both persons. It is a practical, easily applied approach that balances the care recipient’s needs with those of the care-giver. Dr. Yarbrough likens giving-care to riding a teeter-totter where the needs of both persons go up and down based on the circumstances at hand. As a care-giver, Dr. Yarbrough has experienced how easily one can forget herself while meeting a loved one’s care needs. That experience taught her that care-giving and giving-care are two fundamentally different practices. According Dr. Yarbrough, care-giving is what you do for your loved one; giving-care is what you do for both of you. OMG! I’m the Grown-Up! guides readers through the Praxis for Care. Using thinking points, self-reflection, and journal exercises readers build an individualized care journey for providing the best care for both people.
