She stresses that all spiritual traditions ultimately offer a means toward transcendence of the limited self1672ocn021628692visu19880.56Communication and congruenceMany 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 books1501ocn019540348visu19880.47The Human DilemmaSeries moderator Jeffrey Mishlove interviews Rollo May on existential psychology and the role of anxiety in our lives1391ocn021250187visu19880.39Guide to rational livingDiscussion focuses on how our behavior, emotions and our ideas are interrelated1363ocn796024268visu19880.60Bugental, James F. THumanistic psychotherapyInterviewsHumanistic-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 is1341ocn027209581visu19920.37Approaches to consciousness(Cont.) In "Working with comas" Arnold Mindell discusses the unique methods he has developed for working with individuals in comatose states. Using the techniques of "process psychology" he is able to find channels into the minds of comatose individuals that allow him to establish communication. In "The art of psychotherapy," Irvin D. Yalom discusses his novel When Nietzsche wept, which highlights the existential issues of human consciousness which are the basis of his own therapeutic approach. The soul-searching self-examination of the philosopher Nietzsche is contrasted with the methodical approach of Joseph Breuer, a renowned physician and pioneer psychotherapist1262ocn796024197visu19880.54Compassion in actionInterviewsRam 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 is1173ocn024683436visu19880.39Does mind matter?Series moderator Jeffrey Mishlove interviews speakers on the relationship of mind to body or brain; comparison of the mind to computers; and the mind in Buddhism1013ocn796024292visu19940.60Memory, suggestion and abuseWith 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 Trauma961ocn042496500visu19880.37Boundaries of the soulJeffrey Mishlove interviews June Singer about the theory and practice of Carl G. Jung's analytic psychology934ocn796024166visu19880.60Awakening intuitionWe can train our own intuitive faculty by learning to quiet the mind and listen to internal signals. Frances Vaughan, Ph. D., says intuition involves a direct knowing without mediation by human senses or logic. She points to several types of intuition--spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical913ocn019540261visu19880.31Living philosophicallySeries moderator Jeffrey Mishlove interviews speakers on the self as it relates to society, the universe, religion and thought892ocn027871086visu19920.47Understanding prejudiceThe demographics of society are forcing us to come to terms with cultural diversity. In this 2-part program, Jeffrey Mishlove interviews Price Cobbs who describes the principles of ethnotherapy designed to facilitate a deep examination of the ways we think about other groups872ocn796024216visu19880.63Cultivating and applying intuitionA gifted intuitive and a professional psychologist, Helen Palmer, Ph. D., describes the relationship between intuitive and psychic abilities. Palmer says that intuition training frequently involves the use of disciplines such as concentration, visualization and contemplation, and this often leads to personality growth and spiritual development862ocn796024184visu20070.67Addiction, attachment and spiritual crisisChristina 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 therapy853ocn796024305visu19880.56Speeth, Kathleen RiordanPsychodynamics of liberationInterviewsUnderneath 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, California852ocn796024318visu19940.67Lucid dreamingLucid dreams are dreams in which you are aware that you are dreaming. Researcher LaBerge discusses techniques for inducing lucid dreams as well as some practical applications. These include anxiety reduction, practicing various skills, creative problem solving and exploring decision scenarios. Stephen LaBerge, Ph. D., is a research associate at Stanford University's sleep and dream laboratory. He is founder of the Lucidity Institute in Palo Alto, California, and is author of Lucid Dreaming and Exploring the World of Lucid Dreams852ocn796024331visu19880.60Transcending limitationsWe all limit ourselves by attachment to old attitudes and outworn ideas. James Fadiman, Ph. D., author of Be All That You Are, offers several techniques to help us recognize and discard such attitudes and set goals for the changes we desire. A distinguished humanistic psychologist, Dr. Fadiman is past-president of the Association for Transpersonal Psychology and of the Institute of Noetic Sciences831ocn796024150visu20110.67A guide to rational thinkingWorking 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 revolution823ocn024462703visu19870.56Thinking about thinkingMichael Scriven, a philosopher and multi-disciplinary scholar, discusses what he calls "evaluation phobia", the fear that individuals and organizations have about carefully examining the logic of their own decisionsFri Feb 13 10:20:34 EST 2015batch24093
