Local marriage and family therapist Christina Hathaway recently used her professional coaching experience to publish her first book, “Don’t Hold Their Poop.”

The self-help book, released earlier this year, doubles as a workbook of lessons and activities to help readers process thoughts and emotions they may carry throughout their lives, according to a press release.

Hathaway, the founder and CEO of Ignite Ambition, approaches the world of self-help books by comparing what is described as life’s big messes to the silly concept of “poop” in a 60-page book, featuring fun, relatable graphics.

“I am hoping that the reader is intrigued enough to pick up the book,” Hathaway states in the release.

“With a funny and short synopsis about the book, the reader will quickly understand that ‘poop’ is actually the emotions that other people project onto the reader and how the reader can begin recognizing when they have internalized poo.”

She created the book to make it easy for any reader to conceptualize the concepts of setting boundaries and managing their emotional expressions. People of all ages and professionals can benefit from chapters such as, “Pop a Squat and Relax,” which encourage not taking oneself too seriously, the release said.

As a family and marriage therapist, Hathaway described her therapy practices as off-the-cuff and down-to-earth as she used her style of therapy for her writing style in “Don’t Hold Their Poop.”

“My goal was for my clients to leave therapy sessions remembering the shenanigans that came out of my mouth when they were triggered or in stressful real-life situations,” Hathaway said. “Per my client’s account, it worked.”

“Don’t Hold Their Poop,” which is illustrated by Brenna Lundy, is available for purchase on its website, on Amazon in print and eBook formats as well as local bookstores, The County Seat and Changing Hands Bookstore.
