The Diary of K.c.

The Diary of K.c.

Coming of age it means different things to different people. For some it means alcohol and lose women. For others it means leaving their childhood behind and becoming an adult. For me, it means life or death and everything in between. Like all great stories it starts with a woman. Arianna. She in short is my ideal woman. Arianna. She is a lot of things...Unfortunately alive isn't one of them. Because of her I was drawn into a world that I can barely believe exists. I experienced horrors that I had previously thought only existed on the big screen.

This book will help psychotherapists, pastoral and marriage and family counselors, and medical/nursing service providers guide patients and clients in turning negative actions and decisions into positive ones. In Saints and Rogues, you will find: an assessment of the life of Harry Stack Sullivan (1892-1949)— called “rogue therapist” by his peers; today a hero for his influence on psychotherapy practice bullying in school—the creation of a prevention program used at the K-5 level designed to appeal to the empathy of the children who are bullied as well as the perpetrators an examination of historical, sociological, and psychoanalytic research about Italian Americans stereotyped as rogues during the twentieth century and in the media today interviews with individuals self-identified as “third gender” who live as neither men nor women—and their frequent encounters with spirituality and much more! Saints and Rogues: Conflicts and Convergence in Psychotherapy reevaluates the ethical ramifications of dual/duel relationships, revealing how a roguish character may be seen as saintly and vice versa. This book emphasizes the importance of seeing and treating one another with the same consideration as we would give ourselves. If knowledge is power, the reader—therapist and layperson alike—will find strength in these pages to face their home, work, or school lives with more confidence and pride.
