Many of us are afraid to communicate to others our true feelings. One of the most influential modern psychologists and a founder of family therapy, Virginia Satir describes how internalized "rules" for social behavior limit our communication. Ms. Satir demonstrates various communication styles--depreciation, blaming, intellectualizing and irrelevance--which people use to cover up their feelings of low self-esteem. The late Ms. Satir was one of the most influential psychologists of her day. She was the author of Conjoint Family Therapy, Peoplemaking, Self Esteem and numerous other books

Humanistic-existential psychotherapy is a journey toward greater wholeness and aliveness. The late James Bugental, Ph. D., was the first president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology, president of the California State Psychological Association. He is author of The Search for Authenticity, Psychotherapy and Process and several other seminal books. The client in this process does not necessarily alleviate symptoms or change behavior--but rather completes therapy with a larger sense of who he or she is
Compassion in action( Visual )

3 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ram Dass probes deeply into the nature of helping relationships. He suggests that when we see deeply into each human being, no matter how desperate the situation, we are able to honor and learn from them. If we view ourselves as the "helper," we become trapped in the prison of our own self-image -- and this interferes with genuine compassion. Ram Dass' own path has led him to look for God in every person and situation. Following this path, his life of service has included working with refugees, with the blind, and with the dying. In this moving, two-part program, he examines the delicate state of awareness in which one acts compassionately for social change while also accepting the world exactly as it is
Becoming more fully human by Jeffrey Mishlove( Visual )

5 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problems of society result less from an intrinsic evil in human nature than from our failure to stop repeating behavior patterns from the past. Change, says Virginia Satir, begins with learning to accept and understand the many parts of oneself
Memory, suggestion and abuse( Visual )

3 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With regard to memory, the human brain functions neither like a computer nor a video camera. Memories, says Dr. Michael D Yapko, are more a function of reconstruction than reproduction. Many factors affect memory, and detailed memories, accompanied by strong emotions, can readily be obtained through hypnotic suggestion --even when such memories have no basis in fact. Dr. Yapko reviews the psychotherapeutic interactions that often lead to a diagnosis of childhood sexual abuse and enumerates various therapeutic pitfalls. Michael Yapko, Ph. D., is a clinical psychologist and author of Trancework and Suggestions of Abuse: True and False Memories of Childhood Sexual Trauma

Addiction, attachment and spiritual crisis( Visual )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christina Grof describes her own struggle to overcome alcoholism and suggests that the impulse that leads to addictive behavior stems from our yearning for spiritual union. Crises of spiritual opening, she says, may often look like episodes of acute psychosis and are often difficult and even painful. Unlike psychosis, however, such crises can lead to higher states of personality integration. Christina Grof is founder of the Spiritual Emergence Network. She is author of The Thirst for Wholeness, and is a developer, with husband Stanislav Grof, of Holotropic therapy

Cultivating mindfulness by Jeffrey Mishlove( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The underlying cause of most social and personal problems is lack of mindfulness. Psychologist Charles Tart, Ph. D., author of States of Consciousness and Waking Up, discusses how difficult it is to translate meditative awareness to the problems of daily life. He describes the training methods of G.I. Gurdjieff as an alternative form of mindfulness training intended to be used in the midst of workaday activities
A guide to rational thinking( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Working to change your personal philosophy is a valid therapeutic technique -- one which can lead to genuine growth. Behavior, emotion and cognition, says Albert Ellis, are all interrelated. He tells us how to recognize irrational belief patterns based on musts and shoulds. He then presents methods for self-analysis and therapy. Dr. Ellis discusses and demonstrates the modeling approach, the use of humor, the use of cognitive homework, unconditional acceptance of clients, the use of strong language and dealing with low frustration tolerance. In a moving manner, he also describes the application of these principles in his own life experience. (A program in two parts) Born in 1913, Albert Ellis, Ph. D., is one of the most influential figures in the history of psychology. He is author of over 600 academic papers and more than 50 books including A Guide to Rational Living, How to Live with a Neurotic, Humanistic Psychotherapy, The Art and Science of Love and Sex Without Guilt. Dr. Ellis is considered the grandfather of cognitive behavior therapy, the founder of Rational-Emotive Therapy (RET) and one of the architects of the sexual revolution
