Many of us are afraid to communicate to others our true feelings.

A guide to rational thinking ( visu )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 104 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

She amplifies on the details of her dream interviewing method and demonstrates the method by working with Jeffrey Mishlove to interpret one of his dreams.Gayle Delaney, Ph.D., is the founding president of the Association for the Study of Dreams. She is director of the Delaney and Flowers Dream Center in San Francisco and is author of Living Your Dreams and Breakthrough Dreaming
The total self ( visu )
3 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 93 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
Approaches to consciousness ( visu )
4 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and held by 88 libraries worldwide
A series of four interviews conducted by Jeffrey Mishlove on problems of consciousness. Robert Ornstein suggests that the mind is composed of many subroutines that he refers to as a "squadron of simpletons." Self-mastery requires orchestrating these "simpletons" to work as a team. "The nervous system and the soul" deals with the dramatic, musical and mathematical qualities of the soul as they are available even to the mentally retarded and those with other neurological defects. Oliver Sacks maintains that our conventional view of awareness keeps us from appreciating the unique talents of those with Tourette's syndrome and other disorders. Arnold Mindell discusses the unique methods he has developed for working with individuals in comatose states. Using the techniques of "process psychology" he is able to find channels into the minds of comatose individuals that allow him to establish communication. Irvin D. Yalom discusses his novel When Nietzsche wept, which highlights the existential issues of human consciousness which are the basis of his own therapeutic approach. The soul-searching self-examination of the philosopher Nietzsche is contrasted with the methodical approach of Joseph Breuer, a renowned physician and pioneer psychotherapist
