The lost art of listening by Michael P Nichols( Book )

37 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in 8 languages and held by 2,017 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We never outgrow our need to connect with others--to feel as though we are heard and understood. That is why a sympathetic ear is such a powerful force in human relationships--and why the failure to be heard is so painful. But why do we often feel cut off when speaking to the people closest to us, family members, friends, or colleagues? What is it that keeps so many of us from really listening? Psychologist Michael P. Nichols answers these questions and more in this ground-breaking exploration of why people don't hear one another. His book, an engaging guide to the secrets of listening and being listened to, is filled with examples that clearly demonstrate easy-to-learn techniques for becoming a better listener. He also illustrates how empathic listening enables us to break through misunderstandings and conflict and to transform our personal and professional relationships.--From publisher description

Family healing : tales of hope and renewal from family therapy by Salvador Minuchin( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in English and Chinese and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The family, the source of our greatest hope for happiness, sometimes turns out to be the source of our greatest disappointment. Now, in the culmination of his lifework, world-renowned family therapist Salvador Minuchin reveals how his own personal experiences shaped his understanding of the family and his ability to cut through the knots of family dynamics. The grandson of Russian Jewish Emigrants to Argentina, Minuchin grew up secure in a closely knit extended family within a larger society of outspoken anti-Semitism and dictatorial politics. The impact of his formative experiences - anti-Peronist revolutionary activities which landed him in jail, service in the Israeli army in 1947-48, work with displaced children of the Holocaust and with poor black and Puerto Rican delinquents - helped forge his development as theorist and famed clinician. Where others saw only chaos and confusion, Minuchin found structure: members of families shadow dancing within invisible boundaries and systems. As he tells the dramatic stories of families who have sought his help, Minuchin reveals the hidden rules that trap family members in stifling roles. His confrontational yet compassionate style of therapy unlock the self-defeating patterns which foster marital conflict, difficulties with children, problems adjusting to old age and retirement, and other crises at each stage of the family life cycle. Each therapeutic encounter is a compelling dialogue between Minuchin's wisdom and a family struggling with pain but resistant to change. His creative and daring solutions to familiar family crises offer insight into the workings of all families. In this book of inspiration and hope, Minuchin shows us the hidden strengths to be found in the heart of the family itself

Inside family therapy : a case study in family healing by Michael P Nichols( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of family therapy is usually told in a particular way. The subject is families, but the point of view is the therapist's. This perspective allows us to narrow our focus to essential dynamics - complementarity, triangles, cross-generational coalitions - and to emphasize therapeutic techniques. Face to face with a family in pain, it can be hard to see past their griefs and complaints to the underlying dynamics. So if therapists sometimes reduce the complexities of human relationships to categories they can deal with, they do so for a good reasons. But, inevitably, something is lost. [This book] brings you into the consulting room to see for yourself what goes on. Many cases are described, but the emphasis is on the details of one family's therapy. This story also takes you deep into the experience of the family in treatment
