Strategies of psychotherapy by Jay Haley( Book )

65 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 1,240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author Jay Haley is not a psychotherapist but a communications analyst. Haley more than any preceding worker has utilized the insights of communication analysis to discover a common factor in various methods of psychotherapy as well as to devise psychotherapeutic interventions which can be strikingly effective. He is very much concerned with the need for an efficient and economical approach to emotional problems and for a descriptive system that takes into account all those others who are involved directly or tangentially in a pathological system"--Foreword.

The power tactics of Jesus Christ : and other essays by Jay Haley( Book )

44 editions published between 1969 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of eight essays can surely be described as a classic. Of course, it is the title essay that is the most controversial. Jay Haley proposed an original interpretation of the Bible analyzing Jesus' actions as a man trying to build a mass movement to topple a power structure. In the other essays, Haley, using his wit and wry humor, instructs the reader on what it takes to be schizophrenic, as well as the art and technique required to have an awful marriage, and how to be a bad therapist. His rationale for a directive therapy approach is the subject of other essays. (back cover)

Dance and trance of Balinese children( Visual )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documentary on the role of dance and trance in Balinese culture, with special attention to children's learning and participation. A personal perspective is provided by I Gusti Agung Ngurah Supartha, a master dancer and teacher attached to the Indonesian Embassy in Washington, D.C., who with his two daughters and two sons discusses, demonstrates, and performs various Balinese dances. Viewed in contemporary footage and in films made by Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson in the l930s, dance is depicted as an important component in Balinese education, beginning in early childhood and continuing in the public schools and as an after-school activity. Trance dances, such as the kris dance for adults, are examined as an indicator of the intimate relationship of Balinese dance and religious practice. I Made Bandem, Made Kaler, and Dr. Milton H. Erickson comment on children's participation in trance dances. Trance dances are also discussed as tourist spectacles and the source of dances such as the legong. Supartha, a member of a family of dancers, recalls his own dance training with I Ketut Mario, who handed down his best-known dance, the kebyar duduk. In turn, Supartha's eldest son talks about the ramifications of retaining and sharing his Balinese heritage in the U.S. The future evolution of Balinese dance is represented by a deer dance created by Supartha, and a multicultural dance invented and performed by his daughters
Conversations on therapy : popular problems and uncommon solutions by David R Grove( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Grove presents provocative questions: Should he try to reunite a couple even though the husband has been violent in the past and may be again? How can one empower a stepfather who is inept and unemployed and acts like a teenager himself? When a woman can't remember much of her childhood and so suspects she was abused, is remembering necessary? How does a couple's current sexual relationship relate to past abuse? If one partner of a divorcing couple is having an affair, should the therapist help the other partner become aware of the affair - and how? Together he and Haley devise innovative strategies for these problematic situations. While starting with individual cases, the discussion ranges widely over the dilemmas that arise in hypnotic and strategic family therapy. Haley clarifies many of his positions, shows where his position has changed over the years, and introduces new techniques. This is a marvelous chance to interact with a master of psychotherapy
