Summary Book Review Existential Psychotherapy and the Interpretation of Dreams :
Download or read book in PDF Existential Psychotherapy and the Interpretation of Dreams written by Clark E. Moustakas and published by Jason Aronson, Incorporated. This book was released on 1996-03-01 with total page 232 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Existential Psychotherapy and the Interpretation of Dreams, by Clark Moustakas, presents a fresh model for the effective integration of dreamwork in humanistically oriented psychotherapy. The existential-phenomenological emphasis opens channels of conscious awareness that enable people in therapy and in everyday living to awaken to their own visions, hopes, and dreams. The internal shadows and fires of individual consciousness come to light in therapy and in dreams and invite self-resources and self-directions for change in self-growth and in significant relationships. An Existential Model is presented in detail as a guide to effective psychotherapy. With slight modification, the Model is also applicable to an understanding and interpretation of one's own dreams as well as the dreams of people who are in therapy. Through existential awareness and reflective thinking, the reader is encouraged to discover constructive challenges and paradoxes that connect dreams with waking life and lead to the discovery of creative possibilities for work and living. The existential approach to psychotherapy and dream interpretation is explicated through examples of phenomenological interviewing, use of description in lifting out horizons and core meanings, and analysis of core themes that intimately embrace the self. Existential philosophy recognizes mystery encompasses the unknown and unpredictable and asserts that regardless of past suffering and impoverishment, the potentials for health and well-being are within reach. The Existential Model offers a practical methodology and a set of guides for achieving these goals and finding a future that moves beyond the restraints and rejections that have resulted from choosing the wrong path for identity expression and selfhood. The person is the central catalyst for decision and action and retains control over her or his own destiny.

Download or read book in PDF The Message of the Accidental Mystic written by Imma Andkaer and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2013-11 with total page 213 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A long time ago, back in the 1960s, a close friend asked me to go along with him to a book signing in Sausalito, California. I was introduced to the author. He was a recognizable and quite famous old man. As a portrait artist, I looked closely at the bright blue eyes of a once-handsome man. He said, "Will you come and visit me in San Francisco sometime?" "Yes, I will," I replied and didn't think much about it. But within a few weeks my friend was asked by the old author to visit, and I was asked to go along. We arrived that morning to a sunny, tiny apartment. We greeted the old man, and he ushered us in. His apartment walls were covered with newspaper clippings, neatly framed. There was not a bare spot among all the signed photos of famous movie stars of days gone by. Evidently he had been very well known in the movie world too. He sat us down for a cup of tea. Then he turned to me and said, "Can I tell you things of your life? Experiences you've had and didn't have and your destiny. I will record it and put it on reel to reel for you." "Of course," I said, as I was very curious of what he might know about me. And so he talked about me and was very accurate. Then he took my hand and moved closer to me, close to my face. He said, "You have something to tell the world, the entire world. I don't know what it is, but it is the entire world." But all was forgotten for more than fifty years. A few weeks ago, Michael and I were talking about the old man. What if this was all destined--Michael's gift of seeing in the spirit as Kirilian afterimage? My search for healing and search for God? Were we destined to be together? So we decided to ask! "Was the old man right? Was I destined to write this book and tell what has been revealed?" Michael touched my head and the touch revealed, YES. I asked out loud, "Who is the book for?" The touch revealed, THOSE WHO SEEK AND LOVE GOD, THE LOST WHO NEED HELP. "Is Michael a prophet?" we asked. NO. "What is Michael? What is this ability he has?" we asked. The touch revealed, UNIQUE. And so each day, as I study scripture, I ask the questions, some about the future. There are some unanswered questions. The Lord Jesus gave these statements without my questioning: HEALING OF THE WOUNDED SPIRIT. SEVERE NUCLEAR ACCIDENT INDIA. LEARN SEED PROPAGATION. PREPARE. MY RETURN. REJOICE. The material from the touch is growing into the next book. The next book will probably be easier to write.

Book excerpt: It was quite by accident that Imma Andkaer first learned that her husband, Michael, could see into a person's aura and witness injury, disease, and a variety of emotions such as anger, love, hate, and fear. In her memoir, My Manifest and the Grail, Andkaer traces a journey into a fascinating, hidden world just beyond our sight, in which everything we think and believe produces the energies of love or hate. Andkaer chronologically shares her experiences, beginning with a traumatic childhood during which her mentally ill mother was taken away from their family. She continues through her adulthood as she married, overcame a near-death experience, became pregnant, and eventually divorced the man who had come to manipulate her at every turn. As she reveals how she bravely faced life alone as a single mother of a cherished son, Andkaer recalls a dark time; she attempted suicide and wondered if anyone would ever understand her pain. It was only when she vowed to heal herself from within that she began to see visions that took her on an empowering journey to the truth. My Manifest and the Grail shares one woman's incredible life story as she unites her spirit with the "Touch" to offer an important message of healing.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Teaching is a dedicated job for people who are interested in molding young lives. But when one is both black and a substitute teacher with an accent, the job becomes very challenging. Teaching is a white color and middle class job. Alpha being black with an accent had a real trip to hell and back because he had a daily shower of humiliations torturous and sometimes disrespectful and overt racist instances. His determination was stretched to the limits of physical and mental endurance in the public school where racism, ethnic cleansing, hatred for people of color and accent exerted their weight like lead. The result was frustration, demotivation and the feeling of hopelessness. This novel is a true story of classroom encounter, but the names, places and scenes are fictitoius. Alpha stayed at the end of the line with all his qualifications and experience while those who came after him, less qualified and experience moved on. But the organization and maintenance of the system was like a sinking old flag ship.
Summary Book Review Reciprocity (Routledge Revivals) :
Download or read book in PDF Reciprocity (Routledge Revivals) written by Lawrence C. Becker and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2014-06-17 with total page 450 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The tendency to reciprocate – to return good for good and evil for evil – is a potent force in human life, and the concept of reciprocity is closely connected to fundamental notions of ‘justice’, ‘obligation’ or ‘duty’, ‘gratitude’ and ‘equality’. In Reciprocity, first published in 1986, Lawrence Becker presents a sustained argument about reciprocity, beginning with the strategy for developing a moral theory of the virtues. He considers the concept of reciprocity in detail, contending that it is a basic virtue that provides the basis for parental authority, obligations to future generations, and obedience to law. Throughout the first two parts of the book, Becker intersperses short pieces of his own narrative fiction to enrich reflection on the philosophical arguments. The final part is devoted to extensive bibliographical essays, ranging over anthropology, psychology, political theory and law, as well as the relevant ethics and political philosophy.

For all of the thousands of pages written on the recent global financial crisis, there is very little solid ethical analysis of the underlying causes and concepts. He makes a critical distinction betweenthe motivation of financial actors and their competence, then argues that most of the analysis of the crisis has been about motivation. In particular many have called into question the very idea of capitalism as seeking to maximize profits for shareholders. While DeBruin admits that motivation is an important idea, he traces much of the difficulty to incompetence on the part of multiple stakeholders, who have no real motivation to learn about how the basic ideas in finance actually work"--

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Before I began the writing of this book, I was going to do a painting. I bought my canvas and a few more art supplies. But it will be after Easter, as I am having Easter at my house. So, there is much to be done. I told my tennis friends I might title this book "e;On Court Off Court In Court Too"e;. But, this book took another turn when "e;new baby"e; was born. I had said, "e;Well maybe this will be one of the chapters."e; I learned a lot through tennis, the importance of perseverance even in the toughest time, the wins the losses, and all the changes and acceptance but mostly the friendships developed through the years. The humorous moments on the tennis courts that give much needed levity on court and off court too. That might be my next book. Tennis and painting seems like a healthy balance. I won't forget my love of music and dance, family and friends. We are all blessed with our gifts.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Example in this ebook CHAPTER I. Anno Domini Twenty-six, Tiberius Caesar, the ruler of the world, left Rome, with a small retinue, never to return. In the following year he arrived at the island of Capreae, and there took up his permanent abode. It was a spot which already possessed substantial proofs of imperial favour, in the shape of villas, baths, and aqueducts built by the orders of the Emperor Augustus. It well merited the partiality displayed, for there are few places to be found more favoured by nature, in point of situation, than this small, lofty, iron-bound mountain-island of Capreae. Opposite, at a distance of three miles, approaches the tip of a sharp promontory of the mainland, which divides two bays curving away on either hand. That on the north, from the earliest times, has had the reputation of being the loveliest in the world. That on the south, although not comparable, has yet considerable beauty. Capreae, therefore, stands aloof amid the blue waters, at the apex of these two semicircles, surveying both from its lofty mountain and sheer cliffs. Why the Emperor Tiberius left Rome and secluded himself, for the remainder of his life, in this small island, away from the seat of his empire, has never, with certainty, been explained. Whether it was for political reasons, or for the purpose of giving full indulgence to those vicious habits which rumour so freely ascribed to him, is not within the scope of these pages to be determined. He hastened to continue to his new home those same marks of favour which his deified predecessor had begun. Armies of workmen assailed the summits of the cone-like hills and wave-washed cliffs. New villa-palaces arose on every hand, so that the narrow limits of the island hermitage might afford to Caesar the utmost variety possible. Of the twelve projected villas, each named after a deity, some three or four had been completed and occupied at the time of our story, whilst the building of the remainder was actively proceeding. In the autumn of the year thirty, the date of our story, Tiberius had hidden himself away from his people for about three years, and, already, dark rumours were flitting abroad of strange enormities and dread cruelties shrouded in that outline of mountain amid the sea. The seclusion of the imperial hermit was strictly preserved, and unauthorised feet were jealously warned from his rocky retreat. Curiosity became more inflamed and imagination more rampant. To turn the invisible Caesar into something akin to an ogre or monster was an easy and natural outcome of the insular mystery. One thing, however, is certain, that, although lost, as the Emperor may be said to have been, to the eyes of the world, the world and its affairs, in turn, were never hidden from him. Caesar remained Caesar—sleepless, prompt and vigorous amid his mysterious rocks. Day after day, couriers came and went with tidings from every corner of the known world. The vast empire, like a sprawling giant, had Capreae for its heart, which impelled the life-blood ceaselessly to every extremity of its veins and arteries. To be continue in this ebook

Download or read book in PDF The Room at the End of the Hall written by Bette Ann Moskowitz and published by Springer Science & Business Media. This book was released on 2013-02-11 with total page 116 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this first person narrative, Bette Ann Moskowitz tells what it is like to be a volunteer long-term care ombudsman, and how, with thirty-six hours of training, she entered the unfamiliar world of a nursing home to advocate for its almost-three hundred residents. She brings the reader along as she learns the ropes, makes mistakes and meets tragic and beautiful people struggling for their lives. When she becomes assistant coordinator of the program, she gets an even broader view of institutional life, advocacy, and old age. Problems are big and small: a man discharged for having a sexual relationship with a fellow resident; residents not getting evening snacks; an intelligent resident with mental health problems fighting to be a partner in her own care. Author of DO I KNOW YOU? A Family's Journey Through Aging and Alzheimer's, Moskowitz says advocating for the old and disabled in long-term care can be a transgressive act. "We often oppose the authorities by standing up for the one with two different shoes against the Suits. Sometimes we don't know enough. We have access, but little power. Yet, an ombudsman may be the only thing standing between the resident and disaster." In addition to shedding light on this unheralded and important volunteer health care worker, THE ROOM AT THE END OF THE HALL raises questions about how America and Americans go about the business of old age, and how old age itself is changing as the baby boomer generation enters it.
