Crossing the threshold of love : a new vision of marriage in the light of John Paul II's anthropology by Mary Shivanandan( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Humanae Vitae predicted the disintegration of marriage and family life, partly as a result of the widespread use of contraception. Pope John Paul II has since articulated a fresh understanding of marriage, love and sexuality which takes account of the dignity of the human person, and especially of women." "In this exhaustive and scholarly assessment of his Christian anthropology, Mary Shivanandan examines the scientific data and the theological analysis that underlie these teachings on marriage and sexuality. Her book will be an essential text for the study of the development, meaning and implications of Catholic doctrine in this controversial area."--Jacket

Testimony Before Subcommittee on Labor, Health, and Human Services and Education by Mary Shivanandan( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document contains the testimony before Congress of a witness representing the New England Natural Family Planning Association and Natural Family Planning Education of Rochester, New York. The World Health Organization definition of natural family planning (nfp) is included which defines nfp as methods for planning and preventing pregnancies by observation of the naturally occurring signs and symptoms of the fertile phases of the menstrual cycle; abstinence from sexual intercourse during the fertile phase; and avoidance of drugs, devices, and surgical procedures to prevent conception. It is noted that national and international studies have established a method effectiveness of 98-99% for nfp. Four issues related to nfp are addressed in the testimony: (1) level of funding for nfp programs; (2) funding of qualified nfp services; (3) funding of nfp special projects at the federal level; and (4) recognition of the special needs of a nfp service. The testimony concludes by urging Congress to support with appropriate funding those who are providing natural family planning services to the community. (Nb)

Couple Communication and Sexual Attitudes in Natural Family Planning by Mary Shivanandan( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Natural family planning (nfp) refers to techniques for planning or preventing pregnancy by observation of natural signs of fertility. In using natural family planning to avoid pregnancy, there is abstinence from sexual intercourse during the fertile phase of the menstrual cycle. Social values which are incorporated into the method include couples controlling and sharing responsibility for their own fertility and the fact that nfp does not interfere with physiological processes. Rhythm is considered to be an outmoded method which has been replaced by the ovulation or mucus method and the sympto-thermal method. A key concept of nfp is joint fertility since it is the life of the sperm and ovum together which constitute fertility. In a nfp satisfaction survey previously reported by Borkman and Shivanandan, almost all couples who had been using nfp at least 2 years reported positive aspects of spousal communication as a part of nfp. Natural family planning communication provides cycle awareness for both spouses, thereby enabling the understanding of women's moods related to hormone levels. This cycle awareness, or fertility awareness, represents a new and unique form of communication for couples. Natural family planning is a mechanism for impacting communication, forcing at least minimal communication about the sexual relationship, and providing regular opportunities for discussion of intimate aspects of the relationship.
