The primary purpose of this book is to provide a state-of-the-art look at the study of consciousness, which is in the midst of a great renaissance. While honoring Jerome Singer's impressive career in psychology, this volume demonstrates the broad and inte
The remembered self : emotion and memory in personality by Jefferson A Singer( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Remembered Self Jefferson A. Singer and Peter Salovey persuasively argue that memories are an important window into one's life story, revealing characteristic moods, motives, and thinking patterns. Through experimental evidence, clinical case material, and examples from literature, the authors offer a fresh perspective on the role of memory in personality and clinical psychology. They demonstrate how certain repetitive memories help shape our emotional responses to present situations. These same memories are in turn "re-remembered" and "mis-remembered" through the lens of our most passionate goals. Singer and Salovey discuss the specific role of mood's influence on what and how we remember, and they explain how a person's "self-defining" memories may serve as archetypes of the personality's most central themes. The authors also show how identifying and understanding key narrative memories can lead to more effective psychotherapy. Finally, the authors propose that a renewed emphasis on conscious thought and narrative memory may provide an integrative bridge among personality, social, clinical, and cognitive psychologists. Such an approach, the authors argue, could reduce the tension between heavily quantitative psychologists and qualitatively oriented phenomenologists, leading to a more inclusive and complex vision of the whole person. Organized in four parts, the book begins by introducing a new theoretical perspective on memory content and organization in personality and goes on to present research evidence in support of this theory. The second part illustrates how memory content can be influenced by mood states, attentional processes, and biases of the self. The third part of the book links the previous theoretical and experimental work to the practice of psychotherapy. Finally, the last chapter attempts to locate the philosophy and methods advocated in the book into a larger debate occurring at present in psychology. Unlike the conventional psychoanalytic approach to memory which concentrates on what is forgotten, Singer and Salovey treat memory in a new and different way with an emphasis on what is remembered. Theirs is a bold new theory of memory and self that is both comprehensive and accessible
Message in a bottle : stories of men and addiction by Jefferson A Singer( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on his research in personality, Singer provides an innovative set of recommendations about treatment strategies and appropriate psychotherapy for those suffering from severe addictions. Their stories make clear the limitations of a disease model of addiction that fails to address the men's fundamental loss of identity and membership in sober society. Singer's heart-wrenching Message in a Bottle teaches us lessons about the addict's world, but the insights that emerge are a message for us all
Personality and psychotherapy : treating the whole person by Jefferson A Singer( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The last quarter-century has seen tremendous advances in personality research, with important implications for understanding the kinds of emotional and interpersonal problems that people bring to therapy. Yet until now, the field has lacked a resource that connects major personality theories and empirically based assessment strategies to the needs and concerns of the practicing therapist. Blending scientific rigor and clinical compassion, this much-needed volume provides an innovative approach to using multi-dimensional assessment to get to know and treat clients as whole persons, instead of simply treating symptoms or diagnoses." "Showing how and why contemporary personality science matters in the clinical context, this book offers eminently practical tools for psychotherapists from any disciplinary background, and will also be of interest to personality and social psychologists. It is an ideal text for advanced undergraduate courses and for graduate seminars taught within clinical training programs."--Jacket

Memories that matter : how to use self-defining memories to understand & change your life by Jefferson A Singer( )

6 editions published between 1900 and 2005 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Who are you? Your family background, line of work, and cultural beliefs may situate you within different social groups, but the memories you have of your life experiences are what truly make you unique. These self-defining memories can be powerful tools for change, giving you invaluable inspiration and guidance. On the other hand, self-defeating memories can interfere with your goals, control your moods, and rob you of your capacity for happiness and enjoyment. The trick is to maximize the power of your positive memories and minimize the influence of your negative ones. This book offers a simple, step-by-step program that will guide you to identify and explore the memories that define the real you."--Back cover

Resilient Relationships Using We-Stories to Enhance Resilience by Jefferson A Singer( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Positive Couple Therapy: Using We-Stories to Enhance Resilience is a significant step forward in the couple literature. Utilizing a strengths-based approach, it teaches therapists and couples a unique method for uncovering positive potential within a relationship. The authors demonstrate how "We stories"--Created, recovered and made anew-provide essential elements of connection. With vivid imagery, these stories capture the couple's sense of "We-ness," highlighting memorable moments of compassion, acceptance, and respect. A shared commitment to the "We" simultaneously builds the relationship and enables each individual in the partnership to feel a greater degree of both accountability and autonomy. Couples that can find their stories, share them with each other, and then carry them forward to family, friends, and a larger community are likely to preserve a sense of mutuality that will thrive over a lifetime of partnership. Positive Couple Therapy provides simple and practical instruction for reclaiming positive stories that can catalyze hope in relationships that have become stressed and strained. The authors weave together cutting edge thinking and research in attachment theory, narrative therapy, neuroscience, and adult development, as well as their own research and clinical experience to present vivid case histories, step-by-step strategies, exercises, questionnaires, and interview techniques. They cover a range of contemporary couple experiences: couples in conflict, LGBT partnerships, deployed and discharged military couples, and couples at various points across the life span. The authors' unique Me (to US) Scale, a 10-item tool that assesses the degree of mutuality a couple possesses at the start of treatment, gives therapists of any theoretical orientation the ability to put this intervention to immediate use
