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.

Compassion in action( Visual )

2 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 143 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

Memory, suggestion and abuse( Visual )

3 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 120 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 107 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
Psychodynamics of liberation by Kathleen Riordan Speeth( Visual )

3 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Underneath the apparent separation of individuals there is a level of unity and interconnectedness. True liberation, suggests Kathleen Speeth, involves attaining an awareness of this level. In Part I of this program, Dr. Speeth enters into an intensive dialogue on the nature and meaning of liberation as viewed in both eastern and western traditions. In Part II, Dr. Speeth focuses on our tendency to sabotage ourselves -- to act against our own best interests. She maintains that a distinction can be drawn between inner weaknesses for which we may forgive ourselves and those inner criminal impulses toward which we must remain forever vigilant. Kathleen Speeth, Ph. D., is a clinical psychologist and co-editor (with Daniel Goleman) of The Essential Psychologies. She is author of The Gurdjieff Work and Gurdjieff: Seeker After Truth. She is a faculty member of the Institute for Transpersonal Psychology in Menlo Park, California

A guide to rational thinking( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 104 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
Understanding your dreams( Visual )

3 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every dream has a unique meaning that can be learned. In part one of this two-part interview, Dr. Gayle Delaney presents her unique method of dream inter-viewing, and distinguishes her approach from the classical methods of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. She emphasizes the importance of not imposing one's own interpretations upon the dreamer. Suggesting that dreams afford us an opportunity to face our inner fears, in the hour-long second part of this program, she discusses the question of spiritual experiences in dreams and talks about the dreams of various gurus and spiritual teachers. She amplifies on the details of her dream interviewing method and demonstrates the method by working with Jeffrey Mishlove to interpret one of his dreams. Gayle Delaney, Ph. D., is the founding president of the Association for the Study of Dreams. She is director of the Delaney and Flowers Dream Center in San Francisco and is author of Living Your Dreams and Breakthrough Dreaming

The total self( Visual )

3 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the nature of the Self? In this intriguing program, Dr. Hal Stone proposes that we are not unitary beings, but that we consist of many autonomous sub-personalities and energy complexes. These express themselves as voices in our minds. Some of these voices are "primary personalities" which we normally consider ourselves. Other voices are "disowned" parts of ourselves which we typically project on to other people. Total self- understanding, says Dr. Stone, must include a detached awareness of both the primary and disowned parts of ourselves. In Part II he describes how he discovered the "Voice Dialogue" method of contacting his own sub-personalities. The process, as it has evolved, includes elements of gestalt therapy, psychosynthesis, psychodrama, transactional analysis and Jungian analysis. Dr. Stone describes various sub-personalities such as the "protector-controller," the "pusher" and the "critic." The Voice Dialogue technique is demonstrated with Jeffrey Mishlove and Dr. Stone each taking a turn as therapeutic subject. Hal Stone, Ph. D., is author of Embracing Heaven and Earth and co-author, with his wife Dr. Sidra Winkelman, of Embracing Our Selves and Embracing Each Other. He and Dr. Winkelman are developers of the "Voice Dialogue" psychotherapeutic process
