Discover Your Subpersonalities

Have you ever felt there is more than one you? That sometimes you are one type of person, sometimes another? Do you ever find yourself saying `yes' when you meant to say `no'? Or deciding to do one thing, then actually doing another? Most of us have had this experience of another personality taking us over, causing us to behave in an unintended way. Why do we do it? What's going on? Well known psychologist and writer John Rowan shows how each of us is made up of a number of `subpersonalities'. Some may help us, some may hinder us. If we want to be in charge of our inner world we had better find out who they are and what they do. John Rowan has written this book specifically to enable you to do this.

Press On

If you are looking for better ways to overcome inner conflict, renew your perception of reality, and find better ways of living, you are not alone. In Press On! author CeeCee Robinson shares a powerful memoir full of raw, intimate truth and deep reflection, interspersed with poetic twists of expression. She offers a testimony to the journey she took in overcoming her own inner conflicts, the result of traumatic life experiences. Though she believed she had escaped unscathed, life-altering events caused her to wake up one day with thirty years of suppressed emotions tugging at her heart. In her voyage of self-discovery, she learned that the key to freedom can be found while navigating toward the empowerment of soul's voice. Reshaping our perspective renews our best features-the mind, body, and soul. Only then will solutions appear to aid the healing of multidimensional brokenness. This personal narrative tells one woman's story of rebuilding her life as she decided to live in awareness, affording the ability to embrace humanity refreshed, in the best version of herself in hopes to inspire others to do the same.

Neurosis and Human Growth

In Neurosis and Human Growth, Dr. Horney discusses the neurotic process as a special form of human development, the antithesis of healthy growth.

Neurosis and Human Growth

One of the most original psychoanalysts after Freud, Karen Horney pioneered such now familiar concepts as alienation, self-realization, and the idealized image, and she brought to psychoanalysis a new understanding of the importance of culture and environment.

PSYCHOANALYTIC THERAPY 2 6 INDEX 3O7. INTRODUCTION: MY desire to make a critical re-evaluation of psycho analytical theories had its origin in a dissatisfaction with therapeutic results. I found that almost every patient offered problems for which our accepted psychoanalyt ical knowledge offered no means of solution, and which therefore remained unsolved. As most analysts probably do, at first I attributed the resulting uncertainty to my own lack of experience, lack of understanding or blind spots. I remember pester ing more experienced colleagues with questions such as what Freud or they understood by ego, why sadistic impulses were interrelated with anal libido 1 and why so many different trends were regarded as an expression of latent homosexuality without, however, obtaining answers that seemed satisfactory. I had my first active doubts as to the validity of psy choanalytical theories when I read Freuds concept of feminine psychology, doubts which were then strength ened by his postulate of the death instinct. But it was several years before I started to think through psycho analytical theories in a critical way. As will be seen throughout the book, the system of theories which Freud has gradually developed is so con sistent that when one is once entrenched in them it is difficult to make observations unbiased by his way of thinking. It is only through recognizing the debatable premises on which this system is built that one acquires a clearer vision as to the sources of error contained in the individual theories. In all sincerity I may say that I regard myself qualified to make the criticisms con tained in this book, because I consistently applied Freuds theories for a period of over fifteen years. The resistance which many psychiatrists as well as laymen feel toward orthodox psychoanalysis is due not only to emotional sources, as is assumed, but also to the debatable character of many theories. The complete refutation of psychoanalysis which these critics often resort to is regrettable because it leads to discarding the valid with the dubitable and thereby prevents a recognition of what psychoanalysis essentially has to offer. I found that the more I took a critical stand to ward a series of psychoanalytical theories, the more I realized the constructive value of Freuds fundamental findings and the more paths opened up for the under standing of psychological problems. Thus the purpose of this book is not to show what is wrong with psychoanalysis, but, through eliminating the debatable elements, to enable psychoanalysis to de velop to the height of its potentialities. As a result of both theoretical considerations and practical experi ence, I believe that the range of problems which can be understood is enlarged considerably if we cut loose from certain historically determined theoretical prem ises and discard the theories arising on that basis. My conviction, expressed in a nutshell, is that psycho analysis should outgrow the limitations set by its being an instinctivistic and a genetic psychology. As to the latter, Freud tends to regard later peculiarities as almost direct repetitions of infantile drives or reactions hence he expects later disturbances to vanish if the under lying infantile experiences are elucidated...

Imagined Human Beings

One of literature's greatest gifts is its portrayal of realistically drawn characters--human beings in whom we can recognize motivations and emotions. In Imagined Human Beings, Bernard J. Paris explores the inner conflicts of some of literature's most famous characters, using Karen Horney's psychoanalytic theories to understand the behavior of these characters as we would the behavior of real people. When realistically drawn characters are understood in psychological terms, they tend to escape their roles in the plot and thus subvert the view of them advanced by the author. A Horneyan approach both alerts us to conflicts between plot and characterization, rhetoric and mimesis, and helps us understand the forces in the author's personalty that generate them. The Horneyan model can make sense of thematic inconsistencies by seeing them as the product of the author's inner divisions. Paris uses this approach to explore a wide range of texts, including Antigone, "The Clerk's Tale," The Merchant of Venice, A Doll's House, Hedda Gabler, Great Expectations, Jane Eyre, The Mayor of Casterbridge, Wuthering Heights, Madame Bovary, The Awakening, and The End of the Road.

The Therapeutic Process

Renowned for her contributions as a psychoanalytic theorist, Karen Horney was also a gifted clinician and teacher of analysts. She included chapters on therapy in several of her books, wrote essays on clinical issues throughout her career, and was preparing to write a book on analytic technique at the time of her death. The lectures collected here constitute a version of that book. This volume provides the most complete record to date of Karen Horney's ideas about the therapeutic process. It offers valuable insight into a little-known aspect of her work and fresh understanding of issues that continue to be of concern to clinicians. Well ahead of her time, Karen Horney viewed therapy as a collaborative enterprise in which the open, frank, and supportive therapist grows along with the patient. She discusses countertransference phenomena and the ways in which a therapist's personality can influence the healing process. She offers much wisdom and practical advice based on her own rich experience.

Teaching the World to Shell Peas

Surely, God did not allow African Americans to experience oppression for over four hundred years just for us to dwell in an exclusive neighborhood, acquire material possessions, attain middle class status, or be a famous black first. African Americans are not in America to imitate our white brothers and sisters. Our situation is unique. We are insiders and outsiders, Americans and of African descent, free and unfree. We are a split people seeking wholeness. By bringing new insights into the life of African Americans, Rev. Phillips uses a number of case studies of his former high school students to reveal the severity of the split in the life of the students and their community at large. He contends that if we do not attain true wholeness, our unresolved conflicts would harm us psychologically and spiritually, which in turn could detrimentally affect us socially, politically and economically. Many have already become hopeless and mentally challenged. Our educational and social problems are troublesome. Despite our progress in America, many are still experiencing a meaningless life and are seeking answers. How can one attain wholeness in a materialistic and black phobic world? Rev. Phillips takes us on an engaging journey to discover the answer.

The Chakra Energy System

What is a Chakra? A chakra is a gathering of like energy that forms into a cone shape and resides within the seven major cavities of the physical body. Each body cavity has its own energy field and in that energy field resides a major chakra center. Each major chakra center processes energy. This energy supports the organs associated with its particular body cavity. Each chakra center inter-communicates with all the chakra centers and comprises the comprehensive chakra energy system. The chakra energy system overall supports the wellness of the spiritual energy field. The spiritual energy field works in conjunction with the physical body. Together, these are the elements that support the body-mind-spirit connection, which in turn, brings wellness and the potential to live an empowered life.

Psychoanalytic Perspectives on Conflict

Since its inception, and throughout its history, psychoanalysis has been defined as a psychology of conflict. Freud’s tripartite structure of id, ego and superego, and then modern conflict theory, placed conflict at the center of mental life and its understanding at the heart of therapeutic action. As psychoanalysis has developed into the various schools of thought, the understanding of the importance of mental conflict has broadened and changed.​ In Psychoanalytic Perspectives on Conflict, a highly distinguished group of authors outline the main contemporary theoretical understandings of the role of conflict in psychoanalysis, and what this can teach us for everyday psychoanalytic practice. The book fills a gap in psychoanalytic thinking as to the essence of conflict and therapeutic action, at a time when many theorists are re-conceptualizing conflict in relation to aspects of mental life as an essential component across theories. Psychoanalytic Perspectives on Conflict will be of interest to psychologists, psychoanalysts, social workers, and other students and professionals involved in the study and practice of psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, cognitive science and neuroscience.

The Knowledge That Leads to Wholeness

The Knowledge that Leads to Wholeness is the first book to specifically illustrate how the major Gnostic myths underlie Jungs theory of individuation. It is a compelling and in-depth examination of a life-changing journey that begins with the author discovering the forgotten secrets of the Gnostics. These secrets are gradually unveiled as the author and his loyal dog, Gold, are initiated, each in their own way, to put the ancient knowledge into practice. Dr. Lloyd explores the esoteric side of Carl Jung and reveals the connections between Jungs pivotal theory of individuation, i.e. the journey to wholeness, and the powerful, visionary myths told by the pioneers of the psyche, the Gnostics. He details what happens to a person who is on the road to wholeness, how the person will change, and how a new divine-human identity will be born into the world as a result of undertaking this transformational odyssey. -KIRKUS DISCOVERIES Review - Did Carl Jungs principles of psychology have Gnostic origins? A Marine Corps Ph.D. explores the complex mystical possibilities. Lloyd splits his expansive hypothesis of the souls journey into three vital steps (preparation, undertaking and re-birth) in discovering Jungs path to wholeness. He credits Jung with saving his life by way of unlocking his imagination (the souls voice) and spiritual mindset. The author familiarizes readers with the Gnostic religious movement, practitioners of an intensely spiritual inner exploration, who believed that humans are not bound to experiences solely of the body and mind. His literary gift to Jung is these comparative ruminations, all exuding a great amount of imagination and provocative thought. Running parallel to the authors spiritually progressive interests is his adventuresome interaction with and imaginal dog named Gold, who discovers two seeds of knowledge. The first rediscovers the spark of divine life, whereby humans are one and the same with God, and the second amplifies Jungs individuation theory that the human ego must relate to the unconscious mind to achieve psychological health. Unerringly throughout his narrative, Lloyd grafts Gnostic myths with Jungian wisdom. He focuses on the psychic creator and king of the material world Demiurge in association with second-century Gnostic visionary Valentinus, whose tragic myth of Sophia tells of a restless female deity who travels outside of herself searching for wholeness rather than looking inward, and her ultimate repentance. Comparatively, Jung also writes of humans who restrict themselves to their five senses rather than tapping into the core strength of their imaginative visions where uncanny experiences might spring forth. As Lloyd (and Gold) survey principles of higher consciousness, the self, the transformative life-cycle process, and the concluding Syrian lyrical myth Song of the Pearl as they are juxtaposed against Jungs theories, the author also cites Gnostic challenges to contemporary religious beliefs as in the re-imagined genesis of Jesus of Nazareth. Most interestingly, Lloyd inserts Jung into his narrative to quiz his arbiters as to whether they have the desire to discover the mystery of their existence. Unfiltered hokum for some, but those who are open to it will find much-needed nourishment and direction for their searching souls. --Nielsen Business Media, 770 Broadway, New York, NY 10003 646-654-7277 fax 646-654-4706 [email protected] Visit www.robertcharleslloyd.com
