This useful guide from two of America's preeminent psychics is unique in its focus on individual psychology and interpersonal relationships. It begins with simple meditations during which practitioners learn how to recognize their own psychic energy--and also determine if that energy is constrained. Psychic Psychology shows how to free energy through such tools as grounding, clearing psychic enmeshment, and finding the space from which to respond most openly, resourcefully, and generously to life. An entire chapter is devoted to exploring the specific energies men and women have based on their biological differences and helping them to deal with their own energy and that of the other sex. Friedlander and Hemsher present the everyday usefulness of clairvoyant skills within a big picture where they explain that we create our reality, but do not control it; and that the personality--like the soul--is eternal and always growing. The final section describes how psychic skills can be applied in real-world contexts, which are often ambiguous and contradictory. The book explores common issues such as dealing with self-doubt without jumping to unwarranted, blind confidence and how to communicate effectively, with clear boundaries.

AMERICA'S MOST COLD-BLOODED! In the horrifying annals of American crime, the infamous names of brutal killers such as Bundy, Dahmer, Gacy, and Berkowitz are writ large in the imaginations of a public both horrified and hypnotized by their monstrous, murderous acts. But for every celebrity psychopath who's gotten ink for spilling blood, there's a bevy of all-but-forgotten homicidal fiends studding the bloody margins of U.S. history. The law gave them their just desserts, but now the hugely acclaimed author of The Serial Killer Files and The Whole Death Catalog gives them their dark due in this absolutely riveting true-crime treasury. Among America's most cold-blooded you'll meet * Robert Irwin, "The Mad Sculptor": He longed to use his carving skills on the woman he loved--but had to settle for making short work of her mother and sister instead. * Peter Robinson, "The Tell-Tale Heart Killer": It took two days and four tries for him to finish off his victim, but no time at all for keen-eyed cops to spot the fatal flaw in his floor plan. * Anton Probst, "The Monster in the Shape of a Man": The ax-murdering immigrant's systematic slaughter of all eight members of a Pennsylvania farm family matched the savagery of the Manson murders a century later. * Edward H. Ruloff, "The Man of Two Lives": A genuine Jekyll and Hyde, his brilliant scholarship disguised his bloodthirsty brutality, and his oversized brain gave new meaning to "mastermind." Spurred by profit, passion, paranoia, or perverse pleasure, these killers--the Witch of Staten Island, the Smutty Nose Butcher, the Bluebeard of Quiet Dell, and many others--span three centuries and a host of harrowing murder methods. Dramatized in the pages of penny dreadfuls, sensationalized in tabloid headlines, and immortalized in "murder ballads" and classic fiction by Edgar Allan Poe and Theodore Dreiser, the demonic denizens of Psycho USA may be long gone to the gallows--but this insidiously irresistible slice of gothic Americana will ensure that they'll no longer be forgotten.

McWilliams distills the essential principles of clinical practice, including effective listening and talking; transference and counter transference; emotional safety; and an empathic, attuned attitude toward the patient. The author describes the values, assumptions, and clinical and research findings that guide the psychoanalytic enterprise, and shows how to integrate elements of other theoretical perspectives when necessary. She also discusses the phases of treatment and covers such neglected topics as educating the client about the therapeutic process, handling complex challenges to boundaries, and attending to self-care.

SAGE celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the Counselling in Action in November 2008. To view the video - click here ------------------------------------------------------------- `One of the most reliable (and readable) guides to what is involved in counselling that stems from the various psychoanalytic traditions. Jacobs' well-organized and comprehensive summaries of the main theories and his illustrations of psychodynamic counselling drawn from his own work will inspire students and trainees on counselling and therapy courses. They will also interest (and create envy) in more experienced readers' - Professor Andrew Samuels, Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex Psychodynamic Counselling in Action is widely regarded as the most accessible introduction to the psychodynamic approach, making it ideal for readers who are new to the subject. In this Third Edition of his bestselling book, Michael Jacobs describes the psychodynamic counselling process from initial meeting right through to the end of the relationship. He sets out the main theory and principles involved in psychodynamic work and - through two case studies - a man and a woman - shows how these can be applied creatively and effectively within the process. In updating the book, he has also extended his discussion of defences and the therapeutic relationship. Psychodynamic Counselling in Action has been instrumental in training many thousands of counsellors. Now in its Third Edition, it continues to be the essential text for a wide range of courses.
This manual is based on current neuroscience and treatment outcome studies that demonstrate the importance of focusing on the full range and depth of emotional and social functioning. Beginning with a classification of the spectrum of personality patterns and disorders found in individuals and then describing a profile of mental functioning that permits a clinician to look in detail at each of the patient's capacities, the entries include a description of the patient's symptoms with a focus on the patient's internal experiences as well as surface behaviors. Intended to expand on the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders)and ICD (International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems) efforts in cataloging the symptoms and behaviors of mental health patients, this manual opens the door to a fuller understanding of the functioning of the mind, brain, and their development.
More than ever, the aging process is recognized as carrying a special set of emotional challenges-especially when acute or chronic medical conditions are involved. In this light, Psychodynamic Perspectives on Aging and Illness presents a fresh, contemporary application of psychodynamic theory, addressing the complex issues surrounding declining health. Informed by the spectrum of psychodynamic thought from self, relational, and classical theories, this forward looking volume offers more modern interpretations of theory, and techniques for working with a growing, complicated, but surprisingly resilient population. It illuminates how to enhance the therapeutic relationship in key areas such as addressing body- and self-image issues, approach sensitive topics, and understand the disconnect that can occur between medical patients and the often impersonal, technology-driven health care system. At the same time, the author cogently argues for pluralism in a therapeutic approach that is frequently threatened by forces both within and outside the field. Among the topics covered: Medical illness as trauma. Idealization and the culture of medicine. Normative and pathological narcissism in the ill and/or aging patient. Noncompliant and self-destructive behaviors. Transference and countertransference issues. Psychotherapy with cognitively impaired adults. Grief, loss, and hope. Expanding on what we know and candid about what we don't, Psychodynamic Perspectives on Aging and Illness offers mental health researchers and practitioners an insightful framework for improving the lives of older patients.
The book introduces the basic principles of psychodynamic psychiatry and the four fundamental theoretical frameworks derived from psychoanalytic theory: ego psychology, object relations theory, self psychology, and attachment theory.
Psychoeducational Assessment of Students Who Are Visually Impaired or Blind: Infancy Through High Schoolby Sharon Bradley-Johnson
Discusses administering psychological tests to students who are blind.
From the author: This book reflects my beliefs about how psycholinguistics, and cognitive psychology in general, should be taught. Since psycholinguistics is a scientific discipline, the book discusses theories about the central cognitive aspects of language understanding, rather than presenting a morass of unstructured facts on a series of loosely connected topics. It also attempts to reflect the emergence of cognitive science, an interdisciplinary approach to the study of language and other cognitive processes. It describes not only psychological studies, but also ideas from linguistics, artificial intelligence, the philosophy of language and formal logic. There is no pretence that the discussion is exhaustive.
Concise, yet without skimping on information, this book reviews current theory and research, addresses important diagnostic issues, and provides salient details in a number of key areas related to GAD. Assessment procedures and treatment planning are covered, along with the latest therapy outcome data, including findings on newer therapies. Also detailed are specific cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, including cognitive strategies, psychoeducation, and anxiety monitoring.
In dedicating this guide for rehabilitation specialists, consultants J. Taylor and S. Taylor (U. of Connecticut Health Center, Farmington) refer to frustration and patience as well as to pain and expertise, recognizing that bouncing back from sidelining sports injuries entails mind as well as body. Augmented by celebrity soundbites, the authors detail the referral process for assessing psychological problems; mental influences on rehabilitation (motivation, anxiety, focus); facilitatitive techniques (imagery, using negative thinking positively, pain management, social support); return to the sport; and development of a psychological rehab program (with sample forms, program prescription summaries).

Psychological Aspects of Cancer: A Guide to Emotional and Psychological Consequences of Cancer, Their Causes and Their Management opens with two essays on the biological basis of emotion/mental-driven body processes and disease. The consequence of such considerations is that since thoughts and emotions can be modulated and changed by health care professionals, psychological counseling should be seen not only as a way to help patients cope, but possibly to influence the disease itself. A unique overview of a key area of cancer care, this important title then proceeds to offer a section on genetic predispositions to cancer and the psychological considerations involved in screening and pre-emptive therapies and decision-making in cancer therapy. A third section deals with the philosophical and religious underpinnings of psychological factors involved in coping with disease state stressors and the roles of hope in coping. The fourth section is an acknowledgement that patients with cancer live in a social context, which often includes a partner and/or caregiver. The fifth section includes several essays on aspects and modalities of care-giving that are designed to help patients coping with their cancer and its aftermath, which increasingly extends for years. An important title covering key aspects of one of the most troubling disorders of our time, Psychological Aspects of Cancer: A Guide to Emotional and Psychological Consequences of Cancer, Their Causes and Their Management will provide the busy practitioner with cutting edge knowledge as well as practical information that can translate into better care for patients with cancer.
