Stanton Jones and Richard Butman present an updated edition of their comprehensive appraisal of modern psychotherapies.

Modern Psychotherapies

The wide variety of psychotherapies that psychologists and students of psychology face can make for a confusing picture. The level of complexity is multiplied for Christians since they must ask how a particular psychotherapy fits (or doesn t fit) with a Christian understanding of persons and their suffering. In this expanded and thoroughly update edition, Stanton Jones and Richard Butman continue to offer a careful analysis and penetrating critiques of the myriad of psychotherapies now current in the field of psychology including: Classical Psychoanalysis Contemporary Psychodynamic Psychotherapies Behavior Therapy Cognitive Therapy Person-Centered Therapy Experiential Therapies Family Systems Theory and Therapy Two valuable new chapters have been added: "Community Psychology and Preventative Intervention Strategies" and "Christian Psychotherapy and the Person of the Christian Psychotherapist." Opening and closing chapters discuss foundational concerns on the integration of psychology and theology and present the authors' call for a "responsible eclecticism." Modern Psychotherapies remains an indispensable resource.

Healing Dream and Ritual

C. A. Meier investigates the ancient Greek understanding of dreams and dreaming, Antique incubation and concomitant rituals. In this greatly expanded version of his classic work, "Ancient Incubation and Modern Psychotherapy" Meier compares Asklepian divine medicine with our own contemporary psychotherapeutic approaches to dreaming. He elucidates how the healing cure was found in the very core of illness itself -- a fact of invaluable significance today in both medicine and psychology. In helping us to recognise the suprapersonal aspects of illness, the dream is shown to reveal a transcendental path to healing.

Ancient Egypt and Modern Psychotherapy

In Ancient Egypt and Modern Psychotherapy, Todd Hayen explores what the spiritual concepts of the enigmatic ancient Egyptians can teach us about our own modern psyches and the pursuit of a meaningful life. Hayen examines the ancient Egyptians’ possession of a concept contemporary academics have labeled "consciousness of the heart": an innate knowledge of the entirety of the universe. While all human beings possess this consciousness of the heart, our modern culture has largely lost the ability to tap into this inborn knowledge. By examining the material accomplishments of ancient Egypt, and how their seemingly deeper awareness of their inner world created a harmonious outer world, we can begin to understand how modern psychotherapy, through a Jungian perspective, could be instrumental in achieving a more profound and meaningful personal experience of life. Ancient Egypt and Modern Psychotherapy will be insightful reading for analytical psychologists in practice and in training, Jungian psychotherapists and psychologists, and academics and students of Jungian and post-Jungian studies and ancient spirituality.

Modern Psychotherapy and Buddhist Thought

Modern Psychotherapy and Buddhist Thought

Essay from the year 2011 in the subject Psychology - Consulting, Therapy, grade: 2.1, Churchill College, Cambridge (-), language: English, abstract: As a final research topic of exploration, I have chosen to explore the Inner Critic due to its clear prevalence in the lives of my clients, but also for its presence in my own personal life, which has often kept me from realizing a dream or finishing a project. For as long as I can remember I have heard friends and family say to me: "David, you are so hard on yourself " It wasn't until I began my own psychotherapeutic work that I was able to see the truth in these claims and to concern myself with how to dampen the Critic's voice. Of great surprise and interest to me was the discovery that at the root of healing Inner Critic wounding is critical compassion: the instrument of self-compassion. Taking a historical view of psychology it is possible to argue that the root of the concept of the Inner Critic lies in the work of Jung and is related, although not the same as Jung's concept of the Shadow. Young-Eisendrath and Dawson (2008, p.98) write of ... that unwelcome side of our nature that Jung calls the shadow. This is made up of all the tendencies, motives and characteristics that we have barred from consciousness, whether deliberately or not. The admission of the shadow is the sine qua non of individuation.

A Practitioner s Guide to What Works in Modern Psychotherapy

This book is a simple recounting of what makes a psychotherapy effective, across different schools, and with a special emphasis on Ambivalence Based Psychotherapy, ABP. ABP is a modern evolution of psychodynamic psychotherapy. ABP includes elements of Freudian thought minus the many overly abstract, cult-like theoretical constructs. While retaining defense recognition, ABP regards many of our desires as inherently and irreducibly conflicting. Both sides of conflicting desires are real and cannot be changed. By transforming the decision of which desire to gratify and which desire to thwart, in ABP the psychotherapist helps the individual transform that decision from an emotional one to an intellectual one. In 71 easy-to-read pages, many of the basic principles and practicalities of effective psychotherapy generally are reviewed. This booklet will be a help to psychiatry Residents, counselors, and psychotherapists on their path to stronger competence. The minimally theoretical approach of ABP makes the booklet useful also to anyone wanting to better understand what psychotherapy can do, how it works, and what psychotherapy cannot do.The author is a psychiatrist with 40 years of experience who believes Psychiatry is best practiced with competency in ABP as well as in neuropharmacology.
