Book Excerpt :

WOULD THEIR HONEYMOON QUEST LEAD TO SAYING "I DO?" Laurel Covington had been bamboozled into a trip with Wade Taggart—the insufferable, yet irresistible man who'd broken her heart years ago. Stuck in a cramped car, Wade and Laurel were supposed to be reliving her aunt's honeymoon adventures! That meant traipsing from Dallas to Vegas, stopping at places like Ed's Cheap Eats and Lou Lou's Lounge with a man as prickly as the roadside cactus…. So why was Laurel suddenly hoping this bumpy ride would end at the altar?

  • Pdf File: essentials-of-art-therapy-education-and-practice.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This expanded new edition reflects the author’s efforts to explore the crucial components of the education of the creative arts therapist. The text reflects significant developments in the profession of art therapy, important modifications in the educational standards of the American Art Therapy Association, and profound changes in health care. The book is an expression of the author’s belief that the most essential element of art therapy is art as the core of the profession. It is art making that undergirds the profession and is also the key element that art therapists bring to the client-therapist and educator-student relationships. Central, too, to the author’s approach is the manner in which mentor and beginning art therapist come together in their efforts to learn and grow. The concern for authentic engagement in the training relationship enhances the beginner’s ability to use the self to help clients learn to use art and artistic expression to identify and integrate new insights in their lives. Topics presented include The Image, Making Art, Beginner’s Chaos, Journey Metaphor in Education, Mentor/Supervisor, The Art Experience, Core Curriculum, Practical Experience, Science and Soul in the Clinical Setting, The Work of Art Therapy, The Young Student, Gifts of the Male and Female Student, Role of Philosophy, Therapy and Holidays, Metaverbal Therapy, Role of Metaphor, Role of Love, Role of Assessment, and Role of Work. The book is ultimately concerned with the use of art and the artistic relationship to promote human growth. The author’s deep understanding of both art and existentialism makes this book a high point in the ever-evolving fields of existential psychotherapy and art therapy.

Extravagant Postcolonialism

  • Pdf File: extravagant-postcolonialism.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Brian T. May argues that, contrary to widely held assumptions of postcolonial literary criticism, a distinctive subset of postcolonial novels significantly values and scrupulously explores a healthy individuality. These “extravagant” postcolonial works focus less on collective social reality than on the intimate subjectivity of their characters. Their authors, most of whom received some portion of a canonical western education, do not subordinate the ambitions of their fiction to explicit political causes, but they do create a cosmopolitan rhetorical focus suitable to their well-educated, “western trained,” audiences. May pursues this argument by scrutinizing novels composed during the thirty-year post-independence postcolonial era of Anglophone fiction, a period that began with the Nigerian Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart and that ended, many would say, with the Ayatollah Khomeini’s 1989 publication of the Rushdie Fatwa. He contends that the postcolonial authors under consideration—Naipaul, Rushdie, Achebe, Rhys, Gordimer, and Coetzee—inherited modernism and refashioned it. His account of their work demonstrates how it reflects and transfigures modernists such as Conrad, Eliot, Yeats, Proust, Joyce and Beckett. Tracing the influence of humanistic virtues and the ethical and aesthetic significance of individualism, May demonstrates that these works of “extravagant postcolonialism” are less postcolonial than they are a continuation and evolution of modernism.

Book Short Summary:

Bipolar disorder held Ann in its strong grip for twenty-five years. She was regularly plunged from mountainous mania to deep, dark valleys. Suicide attempts and mental hospital stays were often followed by happy times with family and friends; although excess was often a problem. Persistent prayers of her own and others finally led her to a Christian psychiatrist. Her beloved “Dr. John” prescribed appropriate medication, and fine-tuned the dosage to achieve balanced moods. All the while, he worked to convince Ann to value herself. Eventually, he began to patiently and tenderly coax her to recall and deal with the trauma that she experienced and repressed when she was six years old. Anger, guilt and hurt from myriad other life experiences had to be dealt with as well. Finally, and most importantly, guidance in spiritual formation set Ann free to resume her spiritual journey which was stifled by her illness early in her adulthood. Her gripping story begins with generational issues and progresses through cultural and religious issues, mental and physical illness, love and forgiveness, and finally in recovery as near to wholeness as one could hope for. Ann’s story of perseverance and faith is told simply, but passionately. Her message is straight forward: God’s love and provision is an essential element of lifting one from despair to joy.

Book Short Summary:

The fabulous gown, the multitiered cake, abundant flowers, attendants and guests in their finery. The white wedding does more than mark a life passage. It marries two of the most sacred tenets of American culture—romantic love and excessive consumption. For anyone who has ever wondered about the meanings behind a white dress, a diamond ring, rice, and traditions such as cake cutting, bouquet tossing, and honeymooning, this book offers an entertaining and enlightening look at the historical, social, and psychological strains that come together to make the lavish wedding the most important cultural ritual in contemporary consumer culture. With an emphasis on North American society, Cele C. Otnes and Elizabeth H. Pleck show how the elaborate wedding means far more than a mere triumph for the bridal industry. Through interviews, media accounts, and wide-ranging research and analysis, they expose the wedding's reflection—or reproduction—of fundamental aspects of popular consumer culture: its link with romantic love, its promise of magical transformation, its engendering of memories, and its legitimization of consumption as an expression of perfection. As meaningful as any prospective bride might wish, the lavish wedding emerges here as a lens that at once reveals, magnifies, and reveres some of the dearest wishes and darkest impulses at the heart of our culture.

Book Short Summary:

Throughout life, we're invited to go through various levels of transformation, but many of us decide not to answer the calls. Instead, we stay in our comfy boxes where everything makes sense. In doing so, we thwart and limit our world of possibilities, and don't get a chance to move beyond our caterpillar like shells and turn into the beatiful butterfly that we are meant to be. In Path to Freedom, Nader Vasseghi reflects on his own journey of transformation and distills a practical set of insights and guideposts to help readers discover and connect to their purpose, access and bring out fullness of their creativity, and lead a life of joy, impact and abundance. The path to freedom starts with opening to and recognizing our own true self, finding our way of being and feeling at home with it, and honoring and living in alignment with our heart's deepest desires.

The first two volumes of Affect Imagery Consciousness (AIC) were released in 1962 and 1963,Volume III in 1991 shortly before he succumbed to a particularly virulent strain of small cell lymphoma, andVolume IV a year after his death. This last book contains Tomkinsís understanding of neocortical cognition,ideas that are even now exciting, but until this current publication of his work as a single supervolume, almostnobody has read it. The bulk of his audience had died along with the enthusiasm generated by his ideas. Bigscience is now more a matter of big machines and unifocal discoveries as the basis for pars pro toto reasoningthan big ideas based on the assembly and analysis of all that is known. Tomkins ignored nothing from anyscience past or present that might lead him toward a more certain understanding of the mind. Every idea,every theory deserved attention if only because significant observations can loiter in blind alleys."--From the Prologue by Donald L. Nathanson, MD Volume 1 of Springer's magisterial new two-volume edition of Tomkins's magnum opus comprises The Positive Affects and The Negative Affects.

Book Short Summary:

Artist, Therapist and Teacher is a compilation of writings taken from the author's 40 years of experience. The book is organized chronologically, earlier works are presented first and the most recent, last. Chapters include writings from particular years accompanied with commentaries by Chris Belkofer, Ph.D. that highlight their relevance to contemporary art therapy practices. Bruce L. Moon uses music, performance art, poetry, sports activities, visual art forms, and other task-oriented modalities to cultivate relationships with clients. His vision of art therapy work is intimately connected to creativity, artistic self-expression, and exploration of meaning. Based on the author's art therapy practice, his overwhelming sense is that art therapy is continually being reshaped and transformed. This sense of ongoing “re-creation” is connected to the foundation of art's healing power, which resides in the ability of art to constantly shift and find new forms of expression. Unique features include: social applications of the arts, art-based group therapy, art therapy education as performance, metaphor, artfully constructed narratives, and case vignettes. Further enhanced with 12 illustrations to completely clarify the vignettes discussed, this book is a call to art therapists to embrace the artistic dimensions of professional identity, and use creativity when presenting ideas about the discipline of art therapy. This book will be an excellent resource for art therapists, art lovers, artists, art educators, and other mental health professionals.

Book Short Summary:

Löfgren takes us on a tour of the Western holiday world and shows how two centuries of "learning to be a tourist" have shaped our own ways of vacationing. We see how fashions in destinations have changed through the years, with popular images (written, drawn, painted, and later photographed) teaching the tourist what to look for and how to experience it. Travelers present and future will never see their cruises, treks, ecotours, round-the-world journeys, or trips to the vacation cottage or condo in quite the same way again. All our land-, sea-, and mindscapes will be the richer for Löfgren's insights.

Book Short Summary:

An important figure in the development of crime fiction, Mary Elizabeth Braddon (1835–1915) wrote more than 80 novels, numerous plays, poems, essays and short stories, and edited two magazines during her 55-year literary career. Her bestselling Lady Audley’s Secret secured her reputation as a leading “sensation novelist.” Though critics called her work immoral, Braddon’s novels influenced the detective fiction of the late Victorian period. With entries on all her published writing, characters, relationships and influences, and themes and contexts, as well as numerous illustrations, a career chronology, and a chronological and alphabetical listing of all of her works, this companion to Braddon’s mystery fiction is the definitive reference on this provocative but overlooked writer.
