Pragmatics of human communication : a study of interactional patterns, pathologies, and paradoxes by Paul Watzlawick( Book )

57 editions published between 1946 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Called one of the best books ever about human communication, and a perennial bestseller, Pragmatics of Human Communication has formed the foundation of much contemporary research into interpersonal communication, in addition to laying the groundwork for context-based approaches to psychotherapy. The authors present the simple but radical idea that problems in life often arise from issues of communication, rather than from deep psychological disorders, reinforcing their conceptual explorations with case studies and well-known literary examples. Written with humor and for a variety of readers, this book identifies simple properties and axioms of human communication and demonstrates how all communications are actually a function of their contexts
Change : principles of problem formation and problem resolution by Paul Watzlawick( Book )

22 editions published between 1974 and 2011 in English and held by 1,271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why some problems persist while others are resolved. This classic book explores why some people can successfully change their lives and others cannot. Here famed psychologist Paul Watzlawick presents what is still often perceived as a radical idea: that the solutions to our problems are inherently embedded in the problems themselves. Tackling the age-old questions surrounding persistence and change, the book asks why problems arise and are perpetuated in some instances but easily resolved in others. Incorporating ideas about human communication, marital and family therapy, the therapeutic effects of paradoxes and of action-oriented techniques of problem resolution, Change draws much from the field of psychotherapy

The situation is hopeless, but not serious : (the pursuit of unhappiness) by Paul Watzlawick( Book )

6 editions published between 1983 and 1993 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a tongue-in-cheek look at the ways in which we turn ourselves into our own worst enemies. Using metaphors, vignettes, jokes, innuendoes and other "right-hemispheric" language games, Dr. Watzlawick shows how we can make everyday life miserable and inflate trivialities beyond recognition. Those who believe that the search for happiness eventually leads to happiness should consult the chapter "Beware of Arriving."--Publisher description

Changements : paradoxes et psychothérapie by Paul Watzlawick( Book )

7 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in French and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "Comment, dans les relations humaines, les impasses apparaissent-elles ? Qu'est-ce qui fait que, souvent, nos tentatives de provoquer un changement ne font que nous emmurer dans un jeu sans fin? Il y a des changements qui ne sont que source de la permanence. Dire "plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose" équivaut, si l'on prend les choses par l'autre bout, à affirmer que ça change quand on s'y attend le moins. La technique ici proposée se situe délibérément à la surface : barrer le pourquoi ? - question qui porte sur les causes "profondes" - pour mettre en avant le quoi ? - interrogeant une situation ici et maintenant. Un chemin est frayé dans la forêt des paradoxes humains, qui va de Russel, Wittgenstein et Bateson à Groucho Marx. Entre la logique et l'humour, une thérapie est mise en place qui ne prétend point guérir autre chose que notre rapport présent à autrui."
