LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- Jaqueline Hornor Plumez will discuss her new book, "The Bitch in Your Head: How to Finally Squash Your Inner Critic," on Monday, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Anderson’s Book Shop, 96 Chatsworth Ave., Larchmont. The book aims to help people end self-criticism.
Plumez says the book “offers tools and techniques to rid yourself of negative thinking in every area of your life – and in every era of life.” The book draws from her experience as a psychologist, working with patients whose negative self-talk was often very damaging to themselves.
Recipient of both the Distinguished Psychologist and Distinguished Service awards from The Westchester County Psychological Association in May, Plumez will receive Bucknell University’s 2015 Service to Humanity Award.
“I’ve come to think that if my book helps women stop being so mean to themselves, that really will be a service to humanity -- even though I will never be Mother Theresa,” said Plumez, after reflecting on the award she received by Bucknell. Plumez is also the author of "Successful Adoption, Divorcing a Corporation and Mother Power." She has appeared on the "Today" show and "Good Morning America," and her articles have appeared in Ladies’ Home Journal and The New York Times Magazine.
