An example of several chapter subjects are highlighted in the following: Find your purpose by learning how to acknowledge, accept, and work with all the many unique sides of you. Uncover what drives your behaviors, both positive and negative, what allows you to flourish, what intimidates you, and what propels you to embark on otherwise daunting experiences. Understand the crucial functions of your mind and your heart (mind, body, and spirit) and recognize how they are interconnected. Learn how to bridge the gap between them in order to support your heart, thereby changing your reality and outcomes for the better. Realize that suffering in the form of depression, anxiety, and hopelessness exist as your spiritual teacher. Learn how to simplify your suffering into episodes of pain that you can strategically treat and overcome using the tools that youve gained time and time again. Improve your relationships and deepen intimacy with others by learning how to express your feelings and needs in a constructive, healthy way. Express yourself from a solid foundation of knowing yourself, without expectation from others. Determine how your unique story integrates with the collective stories of others. Use your own story to affect others stories for the better. Traditional stories have a beginning, middle, and end, but learn to transform your story into one that has no end, only a continual, beautiful beginning at every stage throughout your life.

Download or read book The Beholder's Eye written by Scott Anderson and published by Grove/Atlantic, Inc.. This book was released on 2007-12-01 with total page 292 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A collection of the very best in contemporary first-person journalism compiled by the award-winning former Washington Post reporter and author. Great journalists, at one time or another, have all been characters in their own stories: people with personalities that shaped what they saw and reported, and were touched and changed by the experiences about which they wrote; and innovators who borrowed the storytelling techniques of fiction. The Beholder’s Eye showcases the very best of an increasing trend toward personal narrative: Mike Sager stalking Marlon Brando in the Tahitian jungle; J. R. Moehringer’s quest to discover the true identity of an old boxer; Bill Plaschke’s story about a woman with cerebral palsy who runs an obscure Los Angeles Dodgers Web site; Scott Anderson’s story of his lifetime of covering war after war; Harrington’s own tale of his interracial family’s struggle to persevere; and many others. Written by reporters who were willing to reveal themselves in order to bring readers insights that were deeper than supposedly objective third-person stories, their articles are an invaluable resource for aspiring journalists, students, and teachers of the craft of writing, and any reader with an appreciation for masterful storytelling. “Aims to dispel the old journalistic cliché: that a journalist writing about him/herself is always ‘self-indulgent and, quite likely, narcissistic.’ He couldn’t have put together a better lineup of writers to make the point that it doesn’t have to be . . . Not just some of the country’s finest personal journalism, but some of its finest journalism, period.”—Kirkus Reviews

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Cognitive neuroscience, once a specialized area of psychology and biology, has enjoyed increased worldwide legitimacy in the last thirty years not only in psychiatry and mental health, but also in fields as diverse as education, economics, marketing, and law. How can this surge in popularity be explained? Has the new science of human behaviour now become the barometer of our conduct and our lives, taking the place previously occupied by psychoanalysis? Rather than asking if neuronal man will replace social man or how to surmount the opposition between the biological and the social, The Mechanics of Passions uncovers hidden relationships between global social ideals and specialized concepts of neuroscience and cognitive science. Proposing a historical sociology situated in the dual contexts of the history of sciences and the history of self-representation, Alain Ehrenberg describes the conditions through which cognitive neuroscience has developed and acquired a strong moral authority in our individualistic society permeated by ideas, values, and norms of autonomy. Cognitive neuroscience offers the promise of turning personal limitations into assets by exploring an individual's "hidden potential." The Mechanics of Passions identifies this as the echo of social ideals of autonomy, affirming that the moral authority of cognitive neuroscience stems as much from cultural norms as from any results of scientific or medical experimentation.

Download or read book The Transparent Brain in Couple and Family Therapy written by Suzanne Midori Hanna and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2013-09-05 with total page 318 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Why should family therapists care about brain research? Are there invisible connections between the breakdown of our relationships and the breakdown of our cells? To answer these questions, author Suzanne Hanna paints pictures of ancient principles coming together with contemporary research as a context for why basic concepts of neuroscience are relevant to couple and family therapy. She illustrates the reciprocal nature of the body and relationships in a book that simplifies and demystifies brain science for therapists. Using the latest findings from affective and cognitive neuroscience, she highlights 6 brain-friendly family therapy approaches and introduces the concept of biological empathy. This analysis enables practitioners to harness the power of mindfulness toward brain development and interpersonal healing. Client-friendly language allows busy therapists to educate without jargon. Applications of family therapy begin with the self of the therapist and advance through the interpersonal layers of attachment, pair-bonding, and community. Chapters include topics on: • Whole body awareness • A narrative approach to neuroanatomy and physiology • 5 basic principles of neuroscience • Basics of trauma treatment • Male/female brain differences in couples therapy • The ancient concept of tribe and a community frontal lobe Each chapter summarizes with principles and guidelines for clinicians. Numerous illustrations make the brain transparent, while surveys, worksheets, and tables make therapeutic process transparent. The last chapter illustrates concepts and interventions through a full-length case story and applies addiction treatment as a case study for program development. The Transparent Brain includes case examples from all walks of life, highlighting heroic acts of survival. Clinicians can use 5 basic principles of neuroscience to bring relief more quickly, for more people from more diverse backgrounds. It is a revolutionary read and a must-have reference for any mental health professional.
