A Jungian Reading of Selected Poems of Seamus Heaney
 Atfield, Joy Rosemary
2007 0-7734-5391-1 168 pages
This book is a study of the poetry of Seamus Heaney collected in his volume Opened Ground, in which the poems are read in Jungian terms. Heaney had referred to himself as “Jungian in religion” and naturally used terms such as “initiation”, “individuation” and the “unconscious” in interviews and essays. Therefore, key Jungian terms are examined in relation to Heaney’s poetic expression of these and explored through at least one poem from each of the collections represented in Opened Ground. This allows for an exploration of the creative tensions involved in the poet’s presentation of personal, poetic and political concerns, while also allowing for further examination of the powerful physicality and musical qualities of the language in which he luxuriates.

Nine Case Studies of Self-Defining Stories
 Ditton, Mary J.
2015 1-4955-0275-9 456 pages
An innovative book written for the benefit of professionals who, in their various roles, deal with people beset by adversity. These self-narrative stories of adversity ground the ideas within the book to real-life experiences, real-life sorrows, and real-life triumphs. The book looks at adversity from a real-life perspective, not just from the individual’s perspective. The lessons gained from this study are significant for theory and practice in the helping professions.

Adolescents with Emotional and Behavioral Disabilities Transition to Adulthood
 Smith, Mieko Kotake
1998 0-7734-8286-5 108 pages
This study presents findings of a longitudinal study of the transition to adulthood of high school students with severe emotional disabilities. The sample of this exploratory research included 41 students in the Severely Behaviorally Handicapped (SBH) program and the Transitional Adjustment Program (TAP) in public high schools and a comparison group of non-disabled students in the same community, a mid-sized county in Ohio. Data were collected through personal interviews of the students and their parents/guardians. Participants in the first-year cohort were followed for three years, and participants in the second-year cohort for two years. The report includes quantitative and qualitative findings concerning student and parent perspectives on contributions of school and family to the transition of youth to adulthood.

Agonic and Hedonic Styles of Social Behaviour
 Kortmulder, Koenraad
2005 0-7734-6201-5 204 pages
Michael Chance created the concept of two modes of social interaction, agonic and hedonic. The one based upon threat, power and anxiety; the other on playful catching of attention and prestige. Whereas the rhesus macaque’s social system in mainly agonic, chimpanzees are capable of hedonic social relationships. The book has been written by two biologists who both have a broad interest in human behavior and the social sciences. They have favoured a non-specialist style, so as to make the book readable by educated laymen and graduate students as well as scientists working in the biological, psychological and sociological disciplines.

Alarming Relation Between Early School Leaving and Crime: A Case Study of Twelve Male School Drop-Outs Who Ended Up Behind Bars
 Smale, William
2012 0-7734-2661-2 312 pages
Smale and Gounko study twelve men who dropped out of school early, and wound up in juvenile delinquency. While many studies have suggested a link between early school leaving and delinquency nobody has done a study from the perspective of the criminals using dissimilar populations. The directional causality between criminal behavior and dropping out of school has yet to be established, and this study brings researchers one step closer to fully understanding which one happens first. The authors outline a long list of factors that contribute to early school leaving, and they insist that educators can play a role in impacting the in school environment to create positive outcomes for students on the fence about dropping out.

An Experimental Reading of Wordsworth's Prelude
 Davis, Graeme
1995 0-7734-1245-X 204 pages
This interdisciplinary study examines the formal experiments of Wordsworth's 1805 Prelude in light of late nineteenth- and twentieth-century theories in neuroscience. To historians of science, the study argues that the central paradigms of dual-brain theory were advanced as early as 1805 in Wordsworth's experimental verse on the growth of his own mind. For literary critics, this study suggests ways of applying theories from neuroscience to the reading of literary texts. The study seeks to articulate a shared psychology at the center of the revolutionary poetics of the Romantics, also examining Coleridge, Blake, and other British poets.

Autism, Adhd, and Anorexia Nervosa
 Hosin, Amer
2007 0-7734-5163-3 128 pages

The author provides comprehensive coverage and evidence-based research findings that will inform both practitioners working in these areas and scholars of various backgrounds.

Balance of Human Kindness and Cruelty: Why We are the Way We Are
 Edgerton, Robert B.
2005 0-7734-6287-2 304 pages
This book reviews the many conflicting theories about human nature, those that stress our dark side, and those that emphasize our goodness. It then explores actual human behavior in societies around the world beginning with earliest and smallest known societies, foraging people such as the !Kung San Pygmies, then various kinds of farming people, and finally, city dwellers. It also focuses on human behavior during the 20th Century providing detailed examples of human kindness and inhumanity. It also examines human behavior under the most terrible kind of stress imaginable--deadly, prolonged famine. How people respond to famine around the world is described with an emphasis on the killer famine that starved much of Ireland from 1845 to 1850. Many Irish people died of starvation but unlike other parts of the world where starvation led the strong to kill and eat the weak, Irish culture forbade such killing and in reality it did not take place. Finally, the book summarizes the evidence, then concludes that even though people have biological urges that lead toward anti-social behavior, human rule systems can control most of these anti-social predispositions.

Beginning Politics in the Reproductive Cycle of Children's Tales and Games in Iran an Historical Inquiry
 Chaqueri, Cosroe
1992 0-7734-9228-3 264 pages
This study focuses on Iranian tales as a medium for the transmission of mode of thought, behavior, and social values in the process of socialization, and in the social reproduction of the superstructure. Comparisons with Turkey, China and Arab countries isolate a complex of motifs that occur only in Iranian tales, and then treat the relation of these pertinent motifs with Iran's socio-historical reality. The historical development of Chess, one of the oldest games popular among Iranians, and its impact on their socialization process is also discussed. The inquiry concludes by comparing the historical process of social rise and the social ambitions of the Iranian political elite on the basis of the games and tales they are brought up with.

Brain, Mind and Human Behavior in Contemporary Cognitive Science
 Coulter, Jeff
2007 0-7734-5315-6 260 pages
This book engages a range of currently debated issues in the philosophy of mind and cognitive science, challenging certain cognitivist positions in contemporary neuroscience. In addressing each topic, an effort is made to illuminate the historical-philosophical origins of the problems confronted, exposing a central the way in which various forms of philosophical materialism are often uncritically invoked to buttress ‘scientific’ claims about the human mind/brain and behavior. The authors conclude that a radical reorientation is required if the confusion that permeates the field is to be eliminated.

Brain, Mind and Soul in the Theological Psychology of Donald Mackay, 1922-1987
 Norman, David
2008 0-7734-5519-1 352 pages
This work seeks to present a Post-Cartesian metaphysical anthropology that is consistent with both contemporary philosophy and Reformed Evangelical Christian Theology. It does so by examining the intellectual legacy of Donald M. MacKay, arguing that his concept of complementary descriptions leads us to a deeper understanding of both modern neurophysiology and the Christian hope for personal life beyond the grave. Covering a wide range of topics from the history of philosophy and theology to logic, the philosophy of language, information theory, freedom and determinism, and the philosophy of mind, this work attempts to present an updated form of the school of thought Donald MacKay founded and ambitiously named ‘Comprehensive Realism’. This book contains 5 black and white photographs.

Child Rearing in Six Ethnic Families
 Dekovic, Maja
2006 0-7734-6092-6 324 pages
This volume reports the results of several empirical studies on indigenous and non-indigenous Dutch families conducted in the late nineties by leading Dutch experts on child rearing. The non-indigenous groups were chosen to represent the three major types of immigration to Holland: voluntary labor migrants (Turks, Moroccans and Chinese), colonial migrants (Surinamese Creoles) and refugees (Somalis). The studies were conceived in response to a government initiative to obtain information regarding “normal family life” in contemporary Dutch society. Their goal was to facilitate prevention and intervention in the field of child welfare and parental support.

Class Struggle and Deviant Labeling in Mao’s China Becoming Enemies of the People
 Tsai, Wen-hui
2001 0-7734-7320-3 324 pages
This study investigates the entire process of deviant labeling under the leadership of Chairman Mao between 1950 and 1978. Through the use of life history materials that include autobiographies and memoirs published in both English and Chinese, the causes of the labeling, the lives of the deviants, and the consequences of deviant labels on individuals, family members, and significant others are thoroughly analyzed. It documents the impacts of labeling on the self-concept of deviants and the creation of a new socially and politically defined deviant class, the ‘enemies of the people’ in Mao’s China.

Volume 3 in this series complements its volume 1 and 2 predecessors by adding clinical child work to their contributions on adult mental health work and accounts of the professional practice of Irish psychologists. Taken together these impressive papers convey a clear message that clinical psychology research and practice is alive and very well,indeed, in Ireland. Emeritus Professor Martin Herbert, former Director of Clinical Psychology Training at Exeter University.

This is the scientist-practitioner approach in action. This collection of reviews and empirical studies will be of use to all practicing adult mental health professionals. It will be of particular value to trainee clinical psychologists and other mental health practitioners in training. In the present era of evidence-based practice, what better bed-time reading? Bon appetit! Professor Michael Wang, Director of clinical psychology training, University of Hull.

Clinical Psychology in Ireland
 Carr, Alan
2005 0-7734-6242-2 228 pages
This volume presents results from a series of empirical studies conducted in the field of child protection in Ireland. These throw light of the epidemiology of child sexual abuse, profiles of survivors and perpetrators of child sexual abuse, and their families, and important treatment-related issues. The following broad conclusions may be drawn from this research. CSA victims were predominantly preadolescent girls, but boys were also abused. CSA survivors had suffered a range of different forms of abuse leading to a variety of psychological problems. Greatest adjustment problems were shown by survivors of coercive, violent, penetrative abuse. Both individual therapy and combined individual and group therapy can alleviate some of the psychological difficulties that arise from CSA. CSA perpetrators were predominantly male, and were rarely strangers. A proportion of perpetrators were adolescents some of whom were survivors of child abuse. Adolescent CSA perpetrators had significant adjustment problems. Theoretically coherent innovative interventions for adolescent CSA perpetrators are being developed. A parent support programme, that runs in parallel to group-based treatment for adolescent CSA perpetrators holds promise as a core element of a comprehensive family-oriented programme for adolescent CSA perpetrators.

1992 0-7734-9930-X 132 pages
Traces the process of maturing individuals' evolution from serial learners to multimodality assimilators of information, constructs and concepts. The book stresses the need for all social scientists to be aware of the research concerning cognitive style. Underscores the need to focus curriculum as well as instruction on the learning process, not teaching techniques.

Conditions of Psychiatric Interest in Early Human History: Homonids, Neanderthals, and Family Level Societies (Book 1) & Tribes and Village-Level Societies (Book 2)
 Fabrega, Horacio
2012 0-7734-4512-9 1060 pages
This is a truly groundbreaking work that exemplifies cutting edge scholarship. It shows that there were conditions of psychiatric interest in pre-historical societies. Did some cavemen experience something that we today would call psychiatric conditions? Can these disturbances grow out of mystical experiences that one would call otherworldly, or interpersonal circumstances? Would this apply to situations where these do not exist in any way that would be recognizable by contemporary standards?

Connections and Parallels Between Humanistic Psychology and Modern Dance at Jacob’s Pillow

This is a study of three fields developing within the 20th century. It demonstrates the relevance of the arts to humanistic psychology, and the ways in which the psychologists and dancers influenced each other.

Consciousness as Feeling: A Theory of the Nature and Function of Consciousness
 Minett, Steve
2019 1-4955-0742-4 624 pages
An ‘Ontological’ Approach: four Ontologies & their Interactions My strategy has been to forge a theory at the level of ontology, speculating as to the ultimate nature of reality and of what it is composed. The argument consists of analysing four historical/scientific ontologies and the transitions between them: the first is ‘Folk Psychology’ that I characterise as an amalgam of, Evolved Psychology and Cartesian Interactive Dualism. The first characterised by sentience, affect and empathy. The second embodies a ‘Command and Control’ model of consciousness. This is part of the second historical/scientific ontology, which I call ‘Cart-Tonism’ (an amalgam of classical, Newtonian physics and mechanistic Cartesianism). Cart-Tonism undermined Folk Psychology, and has became the predominant paradigm of contemporary scientific culture. Cart-Tonist ontology has been profoundly challenged empirically (and potentially philosophically) by the ‘new physics’ and especially quantum mechanics. However, this challenge has been nullified by a ‘failure of ontological nerve’ on the part of the ‘fathers’ of quantum theory, very much influenced by Logical Positivism. I label the most extreme version of this ontological failure, ’Ideological Empiricism’, which can be reduced to two basic principles; 1) Observations are the only reality. 2) Speculation as to what may exist beyond observations is meaningless and futile. I conclude that the current predominance of these two ontologies, Cart-Tonism and Ideological Empiricism, is what underlies the failure of contemporary scientific culture to make progress in formulating a theory of consciousness. The fourth ontology, I’m proposing is ‘Whit-Tum world’. This is a synthesis based on the later philosophical work of Alfred North Whitehead and the philosophical implications of quantum theory. A key feature here is the ‘externalising’ of mind and consciousness by postulating that ‘experience’ (‘sentience’ or ‘feeling’) is the ultimate constituent of reality. Consequently, Whit-Tum world breaks out of the alienating Cart-Tonist cul-de-sac, which has eliminated mind and consciousness from its vision of the world. By linking sensation and affect with ultimate reality, Cart-Tonism’s exclusion of mind and consciousness from nature is reversed at one stroke. This is to say that Whitehead’s ontology undid the alienation of consciousness from the natural world. Thus the continuity of the ‘creation myth’ in human history and culture is re-established. Cart-Tonism is certainly an ontology and even a creation myth. Where it differs from the human tradition of creation myths is that its account of ultimate reality is inherently ‘meaningless’ (in human terms). Traditional ontologies have tried to connect our affective experience of the world with a theory of its nature and composition. Cart-Tonism’s bleak rejection of this link does (I believe) justify describing it as pathological, seen from a humanist perspective. Ideological Empiricism’s breach with the human creation myth tradition is particularly radical, in so far as it explicitly rejects any attempt at ontology formulation. In its dismissal of ‘veiled or independent reality’ (see chapter eleven), it can be compared to Berkeleian Idealism or even to Buddhism. The massive difference being that for both the Buddha and Berkeley, consciousness is explicitly the ultimate reality, whereas Ideological Empiricism denies the existence of consciousness. Consciousness & its Functions in ‘Whit-Tum world’ In Whit-Tum world however, consciousness emerges out of the constituents of which everything is composed; from ‘drops of experience’, or sentience. This ‘experience’ accounts for the bizarre behaviour of the constituents of ‘matter’ as observed in quantum mechanics. This sentience, inherent in the fabric of all reality, provides a ‘raw material’ available to all living things, assisting them in their evolutionary struggle to survive and reproduce. This raw material is used in many different ways and at several distinct levels of sophistication: in single-celled organisms it can be used to generate the ‘cellular attitudes’, as suggested by Antonio Damasio (see chapter fifteen), the basic awareness of ‘what’s happening to me’, as described by Nicholas Humphrey (see chapters thirteen and fifteen), and the features of intelligent behaviour displayed by, for example, amoeba, as demonstrated by Brian Ford (see chapter thirteen). In the complex nervous systems of mammals, the universal raw material of sentience can be processed into an extensive awareness of the environment. And in us (the most complex of all organisms), it is the basis for the vast richness and diversity of full human consciousness. Language and culture evolved out of our primary, emotional consciousness, and has had a transformative effect on the depth and power of our conscious capacities. Of course, we know very little, in terms of the detailed mechanisms as to how the raw material of universal sentience is converted into biologically useful awareness and consciousness. The important thing, however, is to seize on Whitehead’s insights and move our conceptual world out of the ‘dead’, billiard-ball vision of Cart-Ton world, in which mind and consciousness are by definition excluded, and into the psycho-physical ontology of Whit-Tum world, in which both quantum mechanics and mind and consciousness become immediately plausible and potentially comprehensible. As to the function of consciousness, I propose that it’s the principle factor in adapting the the human infant’s mind to its environment. An adaptation that later guides adult behaviour. Before the vast influences of language and culture kick in, the conscious life of an infant consists of sensations and the infant’s affective reactions to these. As per Jaak Panksepp’s work (see chapter sixteen), the infant is genetically endowed to produce seven primordial affective responses to the sensations that it receives from its environment. While this sensitive process makes the infant vulnerable to psychological damage, it’s a marvellously effective system for adapting to the infant’s given environment: it enables the infant’s personality and life-attitudes to be finely adjusted to the conditions it finds itself in, even if these conditions are very sub-optimal (hence the potential for psychological damage). I call this process ‘deep learning’ and, according to my argument, it requires Whitehead’s ontological vision of sentience as basic to the fabric of reality in order to be effective: the infant must be conscious of its sensations of the world and it must be conscious of its affective reactions to these sensations if these potentially life-long adaptations are to be effectively established. Later in life the results of deep learning generally slip into the unconscious, but consciousness is necessary when they are being laid down.

Coping with Severe Mental Illness: Families Speak Out
 Mermier, Martha Brinton
1993 0-7734-9285-2 212 pages
This book describes the overwhelming problems families face in dealing with their relatives who suffer from psychiatric disorders. The majority of the text consists of direct anonymous quotations from a questionnaire mailed to families of hospitalized patients as well as results from interviews done in the course of the author's employment as a clinical social worker in a state hospital. There is an examination of the period when the illness first appears, and the difficulties of finding appropriate treatment and handling the patient's resistance to care are addressed in detail. It gives insight into the problems of daily living -- handling money, interpersonal relationships, marriage and work. It also examines the more unique aspects of psychiatric disorders, such as suicide, aggressive behavior, and frequent substance abuse.

A Way of Interpreting Irrational Behavior as Political Action
 Kaye, Bradley
2012 0-7734-4049-6 260 pages
In philosophical and economic traditions it is common place to discuss agency as rational and self-interested. This book examines how therapeutic practices in bi-polar support groups actually contradict this baseline presupposition. Can irrational people whose behavior does not correspond to their own personal interests be viewed as political agents, and this book argues yes. How does the madness inherent in mental illness factor into political organizing in radical groups like anarchists, and how can a new existential-phenomenological philosophy, which Dr. Kaye creates, help us to better understand grassroots organizing. The chapters progress from a discussion of transversality as the panacea to disciplinary power, which opens up agency, on to a discussion of existential-phenomenological intentions. It then moves to advocacy for this new philosophical system. It finishes in the final chapter on the art of living.

Critical Study of Self-Help and Self-Improvement Practices. Textual, Discursive, and Ethnographic Perspectives
 Cherry, Scott
2011 0-7734-1576-9 356 pages
The contemporary cultural phenomenon of self-help is highly visible and yet inadequately understood. This study explores the seeming polarization of self-help – the splitting of the individual (the self) and the collective (the help) – through detailed ethnographic examination of self-help books and self-help groups. It relates these “poles” by exploring a central and connecting event, hypothesized as the hyphen in self-help, a workshop for a group of readers led by a self-help book author.

Critique of Naturalistic Philosophies of Mind
 O'Brien, Dan Jayes
2007 0-7734-5266-4 320 pages
This book aims to provide arguments to substantiate that John McDowell’s rejection of an approach to the philosophy of the mind which he, in his Mind and World, termed ‘bald naturalism,’ which is an attempt to construe mental relations in terms of the law-like structure of nature. The first part of the book defines the bald naturalist position distinguishing between to forms of the philosophy with regards to their acceptance or criticism of folk psychology. In the second part of the book, a more sophisticated bald naturalism is considered in relation to a study of the practice of interpretation utilized to reveal features integral to the structure of mind. Having demonstrated that the rational constraints on interpretation are open-ended, it becomes apparent that bald naturalism, which is unable to deal with this fact, is unable to properly understand interpretation or the mind.

Developing the Whole Child - The Importance of the Emotional, Social, Moral, and Spiritual in Early Years Education and Care
 Daly, Mary Catherine
2004 0-7734-6166-3 356 pages
The critical importance of the early years is now recognized and it is widely acknowledged that early learning and experience remain crucial to all later development. A limited amount of publications are beginning to address the emotional and social domain. However, there are few if any publications which address the important areas of moral and spiritual growth. This book addresses the emotional, social, moral and spiritual progress of the young child. One of the vital aspects of this book is its proposal to optimize the progress of these areas within the context of the whole child. Its use of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs as its structural base to outline the needs of children provides a very useful framework for the reader to fully comprehend just what is involved. Though written by an Irish author the book tackles developmental areas and indeed philosophical questions which are important all over the world. The book shows that at present we are not doing the best for our children and the negative repercussions of this are being felt in homes, schools, communities and in societies worldwide. The author suggests that the best possible opportunities and experiences must be provided for children in those vital early years so that children have happy and fulfilling experiences. The book puts the onus on the reader to start making changes immediately. If we ignore this book’s contents we do so at our peril. Thus this book makes a very valuable contribution to scholarship and one that can not be ignored.

 DeCarvalho, Roy J.
1991 0-7734-9908-3 180 pages
Examines the humanistic psychologies of Abraham Maslow and Carl Rogers in the context of the main currents of mid-century western psychology.

Argues that Maslow and Rogers established themselves at the forefront of those psychologists who were discontent with behaviorism and psychoanalysis and in doing so laid the groundwork for a humanistic alternative in American psychology.

Heresy of Oedipus and the Mind/ Mind Split. A Study of the Biocultural Origins of Civilization
 Colavito, Maria M.
1995 0-7734-8854-5 292 pages
The nature/nurture controversy, sometimes known as the evolution/environment controversy, seems to have trickled down into the information systems of the vernacular world as an unfortunate rift between duelling scholarly camps. The Biocultural Paradigm is offered as a model that transcends both camps, by recognizing the neuro-biological origins of human development and by delineating exactly how and when sociological influences can and cannot affect those neuro-biological invariants. The Biocultural Paradigm is established by using existing discoveries in evolutionary neuro-biology and Selection Theory. It is composed of five proto-cultural models ("biocultures") which correspond to the five evolutionary centers of our neurological structures.

 Corballis, Michael
2016 1-4955-0425-5 188 pages
Michael Corballis has taken on the difficult task of reiterating and contextualizing this sad moment in the history of neuropsychology. This is not a tell-all book, nor a self-help book, rather a sense-making venture.

Individuation and the Power of Evil on the Nature of the Human Psyche
 Jordan-Finnegan, Ryder
2006 0-7734-5753-4 288 pages
This study examines two primary plays: After the Fall by Arthur Miller and The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark by William Shakespeare, using a Jungian Analytical Psychological approach. By focusing on certain components of Jung’s theories of individuation, the development of personality, and the power of evil, the study provides evidence that the two main characters, Quentin and Hamlet, respectively, come to a place of moral differentiation.

This book emphasizes the components of the human condition and provides examples from the dramatic works of Shakespeare and Miller as evidence of the possibilities available to humanity. Significantly, the use of Jung’s ideas on individuation with Miller’s plays bring to the world of literary scholarship a contribution of understanding the work that Miller was doing and how vitally important his plays are to humanity as a touchstone of human development. The analytical bridge created between Jung and Shakespeare represents a clear statement of the importance of original and pioneering scholarship between two writers who seemingly have no reason to be connected.

This study will appeal to scholars in Renaissance and modern literary studies, as well as those interested in psychology and religion. The work provides a look into realms of literature, psychology, philosophy, and religion, which not only points to the theoretical analysis provided in scholarship but also to the more serious and eternal questions concerning evil and personality.

Intellectual Autobiography of a Jungian Theologian
 Dourley, John P.
2006 0-7734-5975-8 392 pages
This book describes the development of the author’s thinking on religion. It begins with his theological initiation into the supernatural and Aristotelian dualism of Aquinas in the seminary of the late 1950s and early 1960s. It continues through his turn to the immanental theology of Paul Tillich and, through Tillich, to the even deeper interiority of Carl Jung’s psychology and to his decision to train as a Jungian analyst. Jung’s thought led him to an appreciation of the apophatic mystical tradition and its moment of the immersion of the individual in that nothingness beyond the distinction between the divine and the human. The volume also contains an early work in which the author attempts to bridge the gap between the worlds of theology and psychology by relating Tillich’s immanentalism to Jung’s understanding of the “religious function” of the psyche and its role in generating humanity's sense of God. The last work in the volume is a series of essays dealing with the interface of psychology and theology containing essays on Jung’s appreciation of mysticism and a critical analysis of the difficulty in bringing fully together Tillich’s Christian theology and Jung's psychology.

Jungian Analysis of Balzac’s La Peau De Chagrin Alchemy and the Novel
 Soos, Emese
2015 1-4955-0411-5 408 pages
This study focuses on the relationship of Balzac to alchemy as it applies to the analysis of La Peau de chagrin. His interest stems from family influences, extensive reading in his early student days and research he did to document his fictional works. In La Peau de chagrin the protagonist cast as a youthful hero formulates a plan to achieve his goals according to the alchemical process of transformation, and the organization of the novel parallels its principal stages. Alchemy thus serves as a paradigm that highlights the hero’s missteps and suggests the moral reflection missed by contemporaneous critics according to Balzac.

Life-Study of Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Using the Intensive Journal Method of Ira Progoff
 Gestwicki, Ronald
1992 0-7734-9576-2 180 pages
Most studies of lives rely on objective methods of analysis. The Intensive Journal method relies instead on the subjective capacities of the investigator, and is particularly sensitive to how depth or unconscious processes are at work in the life, not from the perspective of pathology, but from the perspective of growth. Each "chapter" works through a period of time in Kafka's life as if he were keeping the journal. This is not an imaginative exercise but a careful following of the Intensive Journal method for working non-analytically in a life. You have the sense of being taken through Kafka's life as if you were he.

The verbal text draws from and responds to writings by Sigmund Freud on women, and Charcot's famous lectures, filtered through 20th-century feminist criticism and theory. With illustrations.

A decisive new approach to our understanding of ‘intellectual disability’ as a social and linguistic category.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in Moby-Dick, L’assommoir, and Buddenbrooks: Interpreting Novels Through Psychological Categories
 Jacobson, Karen F.
2005 0-7734-5983-9 340 pages
This study uses the complex symptoms of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder to reveal new insights about three of the most prominent novels of the last half of the nineteenth century, Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, Emile Zola’s L’Assommoir, and Thomas Mann’s Buddenbrooks.

What may have seemed like a persistent idiosyncratic behavior pattern to Realists and Naturalists, has now been identified as a disorder with attributes that have been observed for centuries and are still difficult to treat. Following an in-depth description of the relevant components of OCD, the novels and their characters are analyzed in the context of this prevalent psychiatric disorder. Melville, Zola, and Mann identified increased anxiety in nineteenth-century society and they doubted the autonomy of human behavior. These writers applied their accurate intuitions of a psychological syndrome as a means of exploring the philosophical concepts of fate and free will and their relationship to control.

This work argues that the characters in these three novels constitute psychological case studies that can be applied to the understanding of OCD. It contains a literary analysis that provides insights into these literary masterpieces, and demonstrates the close interaction between medical science and literature.

On the Death of My Father. A Psychoanalyst's Memoir
 Silberberg, Martin
1995 0-7734-9052-3 164 pages
{The death of one's father is} "the most important event, the most poignant loss, of a man's life." -- Sigmund Freud When the author's father died a few years ago he was shaken by feelings of unsuspected depth. This memoir is a narrative of his personal struggle to comprehend and integrate his father's death into his life. In this very thoughtful, simply written and, at times, wrenching analysis of this relationship with his father, the author offers perceptive insights about the entire process of loss and mourning both as it relates to the living and those who have died which reaches beyond his own individual experience.

Otto Gross, Freudian Psychoanalyst, 1877-1920 Literature and Ideas
 Green, Martin
1999 0-7734-8164-8 372 pages
Otto Gross was one of the most famous – and controversial – Freudian analysts of the first decade of the 20th century. Highly praised by Freud and also a patient and friend of C. H. Jung, he was rejected from the movement because he wanted to adapt psychoanalysis to function as a philosophy of revolution. He had a strong influence on other analysts and was a famous anarchist belonging to radical cultural groups. He was also the center of sexual scandals, for employing orgiastic forms of therapy, and for giving poison to deeply depressed women patients, who used it to commit suicide. His father, Hans Gross, was famous as the man who introduced criminology in the Austro-Hungarian empire. Father and son were close collaborators in Otto's early years, but later the father tried to get him confined in a mental institution, and finally had him examined by state doctors who declared him insane and incapable of managing his own affairs. His influence on his contemporaries included Max and Alfred Weber, Frieda von Richtofen (later Frieda Lawrence), and her sister Else, and the young Jewish writers of Prague, including Franz Werfel, Franz Kafka, and Max Brod.

paper: Sociopathy: The Explanation of Teacher Abuse
 Popp, Jerome A.
2016 1-4955-0313-5 34 pages
All members of the teaching profession should be cognizant of the phenomenon of teachers with antisocial personality disorders who attempt to remove good teachers from the school or unit they wish to dominate. The author examines their activities and notes that they are for the most part invisible to teachers and administrators. Targeted teachers are reluctant to talk about their stress. It will be helpful if those teachers who have experienced sociopathic abuse, or teachers who have observed other teachers being attacked, would report their experiences or observations.

Paths to Social Deviance and Conformity. A Model of the Process
 Rudoff, Alvin
1992 0-7734-9438-3 144 pages
Serves three purposes. First, to develop a model of deviance that synthesizes existing knowledge about it. Second, to offer a model with empirical content for testing. Third, to engage students in the process with attention to the concepts and general knowledge scattered through the literature. The variables used to develop the model fall into three major categories: personality, culture, and social structure. Each category is elaborated, and each factor is explored to establish empirical content. Combining the three categories permits the evaluation of general propositions on conformity and deviance.

Physiological Basis and Quantum Versions of Memory and Consciousness
 Hudson, Arthur J.
2006 0-7734-5746-1 244 pages
This book on memory and consciousness arose out of a concern for there being a lack of understanding of the physiological processes which underlie consciousness. Knowledge related to the origin of consciousness is essential to many disciplines with an interest in human behavior but because brain damage often produces impaired consciousness it is especially important to neurologists, neurosurgeons and psychologists in managing patients. There have been major advances in how memory is stored and recalled in the cerebral cortex but how memory is very rapidly and transiently accessed during consciousness, as when the environment is swiftly visually scanned and recognized, is not understood. Therefore, a detailed physiological explanation of how memory is integrated with consciousness is necessary if consciousness is to be understood. The reader of this work is provided with a basic overview on the structure and function of neurons, their electrical behavior, the role of neurotransmitters, neural circuits, protein networks, etc. in the recording of information in the cerebral cortex. On this background of knowledge, an electrophysiological theory and quantum versions of consciousness are presented, demonstrating how sensory input can be very rapidly matched to memory and sustain a coherent state of consciousness.

Psychoanalysis and the Portrayal of Desire in Twentieth Century Fiction
 Gorton, Kristyn
2007 0-7734-5559-0 236 pages
This book explores the concept of desire through psychoanalytic theory, namely in the work of Freud and Lacan, in Feminist theory and in contemporary critical theory and literature. Wide ranging in its pursuits, the book examines what Gorton terms ‘critical scenes of desire’ in literary and artistic examples in order to argue that desire, as a concept, allows for moments of production and transformation. Unlike theorisations that situate desire as ‘lack’, Gorton argues that desire can be reconceived as progressive and multiple. She also suggests that there is a desire on the part of the reader or critic which creates a second ‘scene of desire’ in which the reader tries to ‘solve’ the enigma of the text. In other words, there is a tendency on the part of the critic and reader to want to fill in the gaps that desire creates in the narrative. This book does not seek to be comprehensive in its theorisation of the concept of desire, nor does it attempt to offer a history of the concept within cultural theory. Instead, it examines the way we read for desire and argues that the concept of desire can be found in these readings as progressive and transformative.

Psychological and Religious Narratives in Iris Murdoch’s Fiction
 Hardy, Robert
2000 0-7734-7570-2 208 pages
This study explores the religious narratives woven into Murdoch’s work alongside the psychological ones. It traces the influence of specific psychoanalytic texts on her work and shows that Freud and Jung, who both wrote a great deal on religion, are useful to understanding more than just Murdoch’s portrayal of the psychological side of the self.

Psychological Approach to Hospital Acquired Infections
 Bartzokas, C. A.
1995 0-7734-9030-2 164 pages
Work describes the first study of hospital-acquired infections from the psychological perspective. In a systematic probing of the attitudes and behavior of clinical staff towards handwashing, the single most important preventative measure, factors hitherto implicated have been eliminated one by one. The responsibility for avoidable infections has been shown to lie within the psyche of individuals, and explains why Semmelweis's precepts, though consistently validated by generations of medical scientists, remain unheeded in practice.

Psychology of American Culture
 Hall, Lena
2015 1-4955-0400-X 520 pages
The book provides a comprehensive view of a psychology of the American culture. It expands on the template of the European American cultures showing how its values of individualism, competition, Protestant work ethics, materialism, enjoyment of leisure activities, physical attractiveness and need for status and power are expressed in everyday communications styles, and educational, and social activities. It shows how the significance of individualism focuses on the importance of the self and the maintenance of high self-esteem; and how these and other closely related American values are all exemplified in, social relationships, sports activities, and television programs.

The study also elaborates on America’s cultural diversity resulting from its immigration history, and shows how this phenomenon only adds to the dynamic nature of a culture which now includes numerous ethnic groups with varying attitudes and values associated with group affiliation, family structures, conception of physical and mental illness, languages, religions, time orientation, religious holidays and cultural celebrations. This book weaves the picture of a cultural mosaic, that, notwithstanding its diversity, through processes of acculturation and enculturation, now includes individuals who work to attain the American Dream by adapting to the values and beliefs of their new home.

Psychology of Carl Jung. Essays in Application and Deconstruction
 Holt, David
1992 0-7734-9481-2 536 pages
Jung's psychology is not a system. It is not a self-contained science that can be laid before the public in text-book fashion. It is a work. These 28 essays, written betweeen 1968 and 1991, represent such a work. They speak from within Jung's psychology,but invoke a world outside. In doing so they address four principal themes: theatre, time, the social body, and the grounding of psychology in ontology.

 Richardson, Herbert W.
2015 1-4955-0414-X 184 pages
This book is written for clergy who are approached by people asking questions about unusual spiritual experiences. Rather than being dismissive to those claiming they have lived previous lives or heard voices or who see the providence of God, this study attempts to enlighten clergy as to the possible ways to frame explanations regarding these spiritual experiences in a way that can avoid damaging the inquiring person’s faith.

Representing the Catastrophic
 Kerner, Aaron
2007 0-7734-5410-1 340 pages
When attempting to represent a catastrophic event in history the tendency is to disavowal the event by referring to it as “unimaginable,” or otherwise such events are assigned to the domain of “fiction” or “fantasy.” For example, in response to 9/11 and the images of the planes flying into buildings, many responded “it was like I was watching a movie.” How then, when our knee-jerk response is to assign catastrophic events to the “incomprehensible” or the domain of utter fantasy, do we convey the reality of these events? What rhetorical strategies are at our disposal? How are catastrophic events, such as the Holocaust or Hiroshima represented, when we no longer have an immediate relationship to them? When the last survivors of these catastrophic events are gone, how will we relate to representations of these events? What rhetorical strategies will prove most useful in conveying the historical significance of these events, even when the physical traces are gone? This book addresses these questions.

Research on Bipolarity and Reflexivity
 Lefebvre, Vladimir A.
2006 0-7734-5822-0 160 pages
This book is an enlarged second edition of A Psychological Theory of Bipolarity and Reflexivity (The Edwin Mellen Press, 1992). The objective of publishing the second edition is to familiarize readers with the new achievements in the studies of bipolarity and reflexivity, which have been significantly advanced within the last ten years. A special journal, Reflexive Processes and Control, is devoted to these studies and published papers related to their development and applications. The “Workshop on Multi-Reflexive Models of Agent Behavior” took place in 1999 in Los Alamos, New Mexico, where the main topic discussed was the model described in the first edition of this book. A modified version of the same model is now used for simulation of economic and military decision-making. Some results of this work have already been published. The theory underlying all these studies has been developed as well. While in the early 1990s, the model was purely phenomenological; now it can be deduced theoretically on the base of general principles of information processing done by humans and animals. It has also been demonstrated that the model can describe process of choice made by mammals and birds, as well as by human beings. The most important theoretical and empirical achievements will be included in this edition.

Role of Sports in the Formation of Personal Identities. Studies in Community Loyalties
 Hughson, John E.
2012 0-7734-2666-3 312 pages

Studies ranging from skateboarding as resistance to conformity, cricket and the imagined community of Yorkshire, gender identity and rock climbing, and violence in soccer, among others are offered in this text. A theme the authors discuss at length is how communities are formed on the basis of sports, and how different identities emerge out of these shared experiences, and whether there is a socio-political aspect to this process.

Separation of Psychology and Theology at Princeton, 1868-1903
 Maier, Bryan N.
2005 0-7734-5930-8 176 pages
It is well established that science in general and human science in particular gained both prestige and popularity in the latter half of the nineteenth century. The new or experimental psychology was no exception. Only a few decades after its ‘origin date’ in 1879, experimental psychology became the dominant paradigm for psychology and maintained this dominance well into the twentieth century. How did Christians interested in human nature respond to this rapidly advancing understanding of human nature? Was their traditional Biblical understanding of people at risk or could the new psychology and the old theology come to some understanding?

Professor Bryan N. Maier begins to answer these questions, at least in part, by unfolding the intriguing story of how one influential Evangelical institution reacted to this new psychology. A case study of who taught psychology and how psychology was taught at Princeton College in the latter third of the nineteenth century reveals at least one way that Evangelicals attempted to resolve the relationship between their faith and this new human science. Professor Maier argues that in systemic terms, a temporary and fragile alliance was formed between the new science and the old theology. This alliance, represented by the personal and professional relationship between James McCosh and James Mark Baldwin, postponed the conflict through their generation but ultimately undermined the ability of Scripture to say anything authoritatively concerning human nature.

Studies of How the Mind Publicly Enfolds Into Being
 Smythe, William E.
2004 0-7734-6351-8 450 pages
Although there are many published treatments of the mind in public spaces, none of these reflexively focus on how the self, mind and psyche publicly unfold. The notion of mind in public spaces is a very topical issue, but there are currently no available books that consider in depth the theoretical basis on which public claims of mind are being made.

This pioneering volume is a collection of papers all of which consider how the mind publicly produces and enfolds itself into being. Refusing to characterize the mind in terms of its dissimilarity with society, yet not accepting the strictly critical project of deconstructing the individual/society split, the authors in this volume are mutually inspired by the awareness that mind, psyche, and self are the interpretations in a dialogue that publicly unfolds.

This book will be of interest to scholars and researcher who decentralize the self into a multiplicity of voices as a way of accounting for mind’s inherently cultural and historical fabric. This book could be used as a primary text in graduate courses in Cultural Studies, Psychology of Personality, History of Psychology, Philosophy of Mind, and Philosophy of Psychology. It would be appropriate for any course that deals with subjectivities and in-depth treatment of the psychosocial. It would also be useful as a supplementary text in advanced undergraduate courses on personality and social psychology to introduce alternatives to the notion of a private self.

The Jungian Archetype -- The Alone: Mapping the Psychological Experience - A Lecture
 Bentley, Steven
2019 1495507092 34 pages
This book is about The Alone as an archetypally grounded, and therefore an ontologically inherent constellation of human beings. As archetypally grounded, The Alone has it within it potential for transformation into the inexpressible energy of The Alone/All One which, as All One, inevitably presents itself as a paradox; at once A and not A, not two and not one. The first formulation is Jungian, the second is Zen. In both practices The Alone is central as both as means and as end.

Theoretical Explorations and Empirical Investigations of Communication and Prayer
 Baesler, E. James
2003 0-7734-6649-5 208 pages
Nearly every definition of prayer refers to some type of communication phenomenon, yet most scholars, especially those in the field of communication, have not pursued the study of prayer as communication. This work brings the relational characteristics of communication into contact with the spiritual life of prayer. It employs quantitative and qualitative methodologies to legitimize the study of prayer as a communication phenomenon, create a theoretical model of prayer, provide three empirical tests of the model, and apply the model to several different contexts, including health, eastern religions, and teaching. The future of communication and prayer research is also considered in terms of theory building, improvements in methodology, and practical applications. This study will be of interest to scholars in the fields of communication, religious studies, psychology, and medicine.

Trickster- a Transformational Archetype
 Lundquist, Suzanne E.
1991 0-7734-9958-X 128 pages
The Winnebago Trickster Myth Cycle, contained in Paul Radin's The Trickster, has significant notions about human nature from which scholars trained in Western thought could profit. Trickster, as challenger of social norms and revealer of faulty assumptions, is also central to Postmodern, Post-Jungian thought. This text demonstrates how an interdisciplinary team of teachers challenged current canons and Western presuppositions by introducing students to non-Western texts such the Trickster Myth Cycle.

Understanding Musical Understanding: The Philosophy, Psychology, and Sociology of the Musical Experience
 Fiske, Harold E.
2008 0-7734-5168-4 340 pages
This work amalgamates music psychology, philosophy, and sociology into a fresh view of the musical learning experience. It demonstrates that explanations of musical understanding are not found in analyzing musical activities per se but rather in examining underlying cognitive activities: principles of melodic and rhythmic construction, language-like template tuning protocols, sensory awareness and quality assessment, and the effects of cultures on neural network formation.

Understanding the Concept of Empathy and Its Foundations in Psychoanalysis
 Sharma, Renuka M.
1994 0-7734-9375-1 132 pages
This work situates the notion of empathy broadly within the historical context of its origins and conceptual development, particularly in psychotherapy. It relates the term to its wider usage in popular culture. Chapters survey the contributions of several psychoanalytic writers, from Freud to Kohut, as well as more recent psychoanalytic inquiries. More specific contributions examine aetiology, description, function and epistemology within the psychoanalytic framework. The work concludes with exploration of some ramifications of the 'empathic stance' for broader application in forms of therapy.

What Can We Learn From the Study of Twins? An Evaluation of the Equal Environments Assumption
 Felson, Jacob
2012 0-7734-2907-7 160 pages
Most evidence about genetic behavior comes from twin studies. The presumption is that this enables an equal environment assumption (EEA). This book argues that the validity of the EEA argument is not as strong as some behavior geneticists have claimed. Felson conducts the most comprehensive evaluation of the EEA to date. His analysis incorporates a larger more diverse set of outcome variables than any previous research on the subject.

Why Physically Attractive People are More Successful
 Patzer, Gordon L.
2007 0-7734-5690-2 608 pages
This book chronicles the reality about physical attractiveness that scientific research documents to be universal throughout the world. Although physical attractiveness may look skin deep as a surface aspect of appearance, looks can be deceiving. Through investigations that meet meticulous scientific methodological procedures to collect empirical data that probe beyond the surfaces, complemented by anecdotal data, researchers reveal a subterranean dimension of physical attractiveness. This book presents the pertinent theories, research data, and knowledge and documents physical attractiveness as a universal phenomenon.

Despite its universality, its pervasive potent influence and promulgation are frequently unrecognized and denied. Regardless of population size or demographics, the impact of physical attractiveness transcends times, geographical and political boundaries, and cultures, in ways positive for people whose appearance is higher in physical attractiveness and negative for people whose appearance is lower in physical attractiveness. Many dimensions define a person’s appearance, but physical attractiveness predominates in information importance in its capacity to evoke and orchestrate an interconnected many-facet reality. Although physical attractiveness is one of a few highly visible traits that people see about a persons when meeting initially, its effects and consequences are lifelong.

Why Psychologists Need to Base Treatment Recommendations on Scientific Evidence. Methodologies for Intervening with Disruptive Adolescents
 Flynn, Brian

This book describes research that sought to clarify if the professional practice of educational/school psychologists is evidence-based when recommending interventions for disruptive adolescents who are diagnosed as seriously emotionally disturbed. Two lines of investigation were employed. First, a literature search using three distinct methodologies - a systematic literature review, a meta-analysis of studies and a best evidence synthesis. Second, a survey of a large sample of school psychologists. All aspects of the literature search confirmed that the current research on effective treatments for seriously emotionally disturbed adolescents is extremely limited.

Why We Read and How Reading Transforms Us
 Schutte, Nicola S.
2006 0-7734-5878-6 232 pages
This book examines the reading experience from an interdisciplinary perspective, incorporating concepts and research from psychology, education, and literary theory. Readers’ narrative accounts of their experiences complement the presentation of theory and review of research. Chapters in the first part of the book examine how evolutionary forces shaped predispositions that promote reading engagement and how reading helps fulfil basic needs such as the desire to learn, achieving an optimum level of excitement, feeling connected to others, and meeting challenges. The second part of the book examines how personality and cultural background influence reading. Chapters in the third part of the book explore the transforming effects of reading, such as changed consciousness and emotions and improved cognitive and emotional abilities. One of the chapters focusing on transforming effects of reading explains how reading can bring about negative changes as well as positive ones. The last part of the book examines research on maximising the benefits of reading and suggests strategies for optimising the reading experience.

Young George Washington in Psychobiographical Perspective
 Rejai, Mostafa
2000 0-7734-7694-6 132 pages
From a personality standpoint there appear to have been two George Washingtons: pre-revolutionary and post-revolutionary. The pre-revolutionary Washington had a grandiose personality, preoccupied with his honor, dignity, and reputation, and obsessed with acquisition of material wealth, especially land. Having won the Revolutionary War and served two terms as president, Washington underwent a transformation by becoming generous, magnanimous, and judicious. Since the literature on post-revolutionary Washington is voluminous, the present work focuses on pre-revolutionary Washington and his strengths, weaknesses and foibles, and specifically the conditions, forces, events, and persons that shaped his personality and drove him to action. The resulting portrait is a careful, accurate, and realistic one, intended to counterbalance the numerous adulatory and superhuman accounts. Part One is an interpretive essay drawing on Washington’s writings in an abbreviated fashion, presenting only the most operative or strategic passages. Part Two consists of a series of appendices that place these passages in broader contexts and allow Washington to speak for himself. In presenting Washington’s writings, spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, italics, the editor’s brackets have been left intact: they are exact reproductions from the sources indicated.
