D., was the first president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology, president of the California State Psychological Association. He is author of The Search for Authenticity, Psychotherapy and Process and several other seminal books. The client in this process does not necessarily alleviate symptoms or change behavior--but rather completes therapy with a larger sense of who he or she is
Compassion in action( Visual )

5 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ram Dass probes deeply into the nature of helping relationships. He suggests that when we see deeply into each human being, no matter how desperate the situation, we are able to honor and learn from them. If we view ourselves as the "helper," we become trapped in the prison of our own self-image -- and this interferes with genuine compassion. Ram Dass' own path has led him to look for God in every person and situation. Following this path, his life of service has included working with refugees, with the blind, and with the dying. In this moving, two-part program, he examines the delicate state of awareness in which one acts compassionately for social change while also accepting the world exactly as it is
Becoming more fully human by Jeffrey Mishlove( Visual )

6 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problems of society result less from an intrinsic evil in human nature than from our failure to stop repeating behavior patterns from the past. Change, says Virginia Satir, begins with learning to accept and understand the many parts of oneself
Memory, suggestion and abuse( Visual )

4 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With regard to memory, the human brain functions neither like a computer nor a video camera. Memories, says Dr. Michael D Yapko, are more a function of reconstruction than reproduction. Many factors affect memory, and detailed memories, accompanied by strong emotions, can readily be obtained through hypnotic suggestion --even when such memories have no basis in fact. Dr. Yapko reviews the psychotherapeutic interactions that often lead to a diagnosis of childhood sexual abuse and enumerates various therapeutic pitfalls. Michael Yapko, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist and author of Trancework and Suggestions of Abuse: True and False Memories of Childhood Sexual Trauma. EXCERPT:
The human dilemma( Visual )

7 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Existential psychology emphasizes philosophic rather than psychopathological aspects of the human condition. In this animated, two-part discussion, Dr. May proposes that genuine growth comes from confronting the pain of existence rather than escaping into banal pleasures or shallow, positive thinking. Genuine joy, he says, can emerge from an appreciation of life's agonies. The late psychotherapist Rollo May was a recipient of the Distinguished Career Award of the American Psychological Association and a founding sponsor of the Association for Humanistic Psychology. He was author of numerous classic works including Love and Will, Psychology and the Human Dilemma, Freedom and Destiny, Dreams and Symbols, The Meaning of Anxiety and Man's Search for Himself

A guide to rational thinking( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Working to change your personal philosophy is a valid therapeutic technique -- one which can lead to genuine growth. Behavior, emotion and cognition, says Albert Ellis, are all interrelated. He tells us how to recognize irrational belief patterns based on "musts" and "shoulds." He then presents methods for self-analysis and therapy.Dr. Ellis discusses and demonstrates the modeling approach, the use of humor, the use of cognitive homework, unconditional acceptance of clients, the use of strong language and dealing with low frustration tolerance. In a moving manner, he also describes the application of these principles in his own life experience. (A program in two parts)Born in 1913, Albert Ellis, Ph.D., is one of the most influential figures in the history of psychology. He is author of over 600 academic papers and more than 50 books including A Guide to Rational Living, How to Live with a Neurotic, Humanistic Psychotherapy, The Art and Science of Love and Sex Without Guilt. Dr. Ellis is considered the grandfather of cognitive behavior therapy, the founder of Rational-Emotive Therapy (RET) and one of the architects of the sexual revolution

The total self( Visual )

4 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the nature of the Self? In this intriguing program, Dr. Hal Stone proposes that we are not unitary beings, but that we consist of many autonomous sub-personalities and energy complexes. These express themselves as voices in our minds. Some of these voices are "primary personalities" which we normally consider ourselves. Other voices are "disowned" parts of ourselves which we typically project on to other people. Total self- understanding, says Dr. Stone, must include a detached awareness of both the primary and disowned parts of ourselves. In Part II he describes how he discovered the "Voice Dialogue" method of contacting his own sub-personalities. The process, as it has evolved, includes elements of gestalt therapy, psychosynthesis, psychodrama, transactional analysis and Jungian analysis. Dr. Stone describes various sub-personalities such as the "protector-controller," the "pusher" and the "critic." The Voice Dialogue technique is demonstrated with Jeffrey Mishlove and Dr. Stone each taking a turn as therapeutic subject. Hal Stone, Ph.D., is author of Embracing Heaven and Earth and co-author, with his wife Dr. Sidra Winkelman, of Embracing Our Selves and Embracing Each Other. He and Dr. Winkelman are developers of the "Voice Dialogue" psychotherapeutic process
Murphy's law by Arthur Bloch( Book )

25 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than a quarter of a century, Murphy's Law has provided the last word on things going wrong. Positive thinking is all very fine when the world is treating you right, but when things go awry, it's Murphy's Law that comes up with the goods-the pithy revelations and undeniable truths that document our limitless potential for misplaced insight, hopeless wit, and pessimistic wisdom. This special anniversary collection features the best of Murphy's Law--plus new 21st-century entries proving that with advances in technology, even more can go wrong. For example: No matter what goes wrong, there is always somebody who knew it would. Anything is easier to take apart than to put together. For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism. The less you do, the less can go wrong. Everybody lies, but it doesn't matter since nobody listens
