The Archaeology of Mind: Neuroevolutionary Origins of Human Emotions (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology) [Hardcover]
Jaak Panksepp (Author), Lucy Biven (Author)
What makes us happy? What makes us sad? How do we come to feel a sense of enthusiasm? What fills us with lust, anger, fear, or tenderness? Traditional behavioral and cognitive neuroscience have yet to provide satisfactory answers. The Archaeology of Mind presents an affective neuroscience approach—which takes into consideration basic mental processes, brain functions, and emotional behaviors that all mammals share—to locate the neural mechanisms of emotional expression. It reveals—for the first time—the deep neural sources of our values and basic emotional feelings.
This book elaborates on the seven emotional systems that explain how we live and behave. These systems originate in deep areas of the brain that are remarkably similar across all mammalian species. When they are disrupted, we find the origins of emotional disorders:
- SEEKING: how the brain generates a euphoric and expectant response
- FEAR: how the brain responds to the threat of physical danger and death
- RAGE: sources of irritation and fury in the brain
- LUST: how sexual desire and attachments are elaborated in the brain
- CARE: sources of maternal nurturance
- GRIEF: sources of non-sexual attachments
- PLAY: how the brain generates joyous, rough-and-tumble interactions
- SELF: a hypothesis explaining how affects might be elaborated in the brain
The book offers an evidence-based evolutionary taxonomy of emotions and affects and, as such, a brand-new clinical paradigm for treating psychiatric disorders in clinical practice.
Art Therapy and Political Violence: With Art, Without Illusion [Paperback]
Debra Kalmanowitz (Editor), Bobby Lloyd (Editor), Shaun McNiff (Foreword)
RC489 .A7 A768 2005
The impact of political violence, war, civil war and acts of terrorism on the individuals involved can be extensive. Art therapy can provide an effective means of expressing the resulting experiences of fear, loss, separation, instability and disruption. Art Therapy and Political Violence brings together contributions from all over the world and from diverse theoretical backgrounds. With contributions from Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Israel and South Africa, the book includes numerous clinical examples to vividly illustrate the main issues affecting art therapy. The practical issues involved are also discussed, including subjects such as the importance of working with both the internal and external worlds of the individual and sensitivity to cultural issues. Art therapists, psychotherapists and other mental health professionals, particularly those working in the context of political violence or in countries of refuge, will find the experiences recounted in Art Therapy and Political Violence thought-provoking and will welcome the wealth of practical information provided.
Beyond Borders: Thinking Critically About Global Issues [Paperback]
Paula S. Rothenberg (Author)
Featuring readings from today’s leading scholars, activists and policymakers, Beyond Borders helps today’s college students navigate our increasingly globalized world and think critically about their place in it. This powerful collection encourages students to not only understand the global realities we are faced with today but also the history that gave rise to them. In addition to introducing students to the major forces of globalization, the significant treaties and events, and the organizations involved, Beyond Borders challenges students to shift and broaden their perspective by examining the experiences of people across the globe. In classic Rothenberg style, in-depth part introductions provide a conceptual framework for understanding the issues at hand and “Questions for Thinking, Writing, and Discussion” at the conclusion of each part challenge students to think deeper about issues.
The Genogram Journey: Reconnecting with Your Family / Rev. ed. [ Paperback ]
by Monica McGoldrick (Author
HQ 518.M38 2011
The godmother of genograms revises her revelatory work that explores how to reconnect with your past and invent a new future.
This notable work poignantly explains how a tool of family history—gathering the genogram, or a basic family tree—can help us to better understand and mend family relationships and dynamics. Here, fully updated for the first time, Monica McGoldrick’s book elaborates on the ways in which genograms can reveal a family’s history of estrangement, alliance, divorce, or suicide, exposing intergenerational patterns that prove more than coincidental. Weaving together photographs and genograms of famous families—including the Kennedys, the Freuds, and the Fondas—she sheds light on a range of complex issues such as birth order and sibling rivalry, family myths and secrets, cultural differences, couple relationships, and the pivotal role of loss.
In this important work, readers learn to mine previously untapped information about their own family patterns, leading to a reconnection to home and a deeper sense of identity. Originally published as You Can Go Home Again.
Honoring the Child Spirit: Inspiration and Learning from Our Children [Hardcover]
by Shmuley Boteach (Author)
ML 420 .J175 A5 2010
Honoring the Child Spirit is an inspirational, emotional, and prescriptive book that calls upon each of us to recognize and honor the openness, creativity, innocence, and awe of children—and to tap into and pay tribute to the childlike spirit that lies at the heart of us all.
Adulthood, according to the late Michael Jackson, is not the be all and end all of growing up and living a worthwhile life. With society’s high expectations placed upon maturity and responsibility, we often shut down our curiosity, sense of play, and deep sensitivity. And with this shutting down, we too often fail to recognize and cherish that spirit in our own children—and the world’s children—so that they can thrive and flourish as children.
With evocative chapters on the childlike qualities most important to Michael Jackson—from Awe and Wonder, Creativity, and Gratitude to Imagination and Security—this heartfelt book gives voice to the eternity of Michael’s spirit and how he should be remembered: as someone who tried to live by these childlike qualities. Though far from perfect, it was this attempt to sustain innocence amidst the trappings of fame that became his life’s goal.
The Interpersonal Neurobiology of Group Psychotherapy and Group Process [Paperback]
Susan P. Gantt (Editor), Bonnie Badenoch (Editor)
Might it be possible that neuroscience, in particular interpersonal neurobiology, can illuminate the unique ways that group processes collaborate with and enhance the brain’s natural developmental and repairing processes? This book brings together the work of twelve contemporary group therapists and practitioners who are exploring this possibility through applying the principles of interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB) to a variety of approaches to group therapy and experiential learning groups. IPNB’s focus on how human beings shape one another’s brains throughout the life span makes it a natural fit for those of us who are involved in bringing people together so that, through their interactions, they may better understand and transform their own deeper mind and relational patterns. Group is a unique context that can trigger, amplify, contain, and provide resonance for a broad range of human experiences, creating robust conditions for changing the brain.
The chapters included here introduce and highlight the theoretical and research literatures from an IPNB perspective, especially the newer understandings of brain plasticity, mirror neurons, the autonomic nervous system, implicit and explicit memory, affect regulation and the relation between attachment and brain development. Building on these understandings, the authors elaborate on work with varying types of groups as seen through an IPNB lens, for example; how systems-centered therapy creates a rich neurobiological climate that supports integration; how children’s groups can help with sensory motor, psychological, and interpersonal development; how using an IPNB frame enables couples’ groups to attain more solid interpersonal regulation; and how experiential learning groups can transform implicit memory.

Object Relations Family Therapy (The Library of Object Relations) [Paperback]
David E., M.D. Scharff (Author), Jill Savege Scharff (Author)
This book gives individual psychotherapists a way of using dynamic listening and interpreting when working with couples and families, and it offers family therapists the powerful tools of psychoanalysis to deepen their understanding and skills. (Samuel Slipp, M.D.)
In Object Relations Family Therapy, David and Jill Scharff offer the most in-depth and thoughtful exploration of the relevance of modern psychoanalytic theory to family therapy to be found to date. . . . Recently the field is showing a reawakened interest in the psychodynamics of family relationships, and the Scharffs’ book heralds this remarriage of concern with the inner and outer lives of people.

Presented verbatim and accompanied by Dr. Rosen’s commentary, they are grouped under such headings as Motivating Tales, Reframing, and Capturing the Innocent Eye.

Beyond Our Differences (2009)
Presented on Bill Moyers Journal (Actor), Peter Bisanz (Director)
DVD BL 48.B49 2009
With all of the problems facing the world today, people are longing for meaning. Many find answers in religion or spirituality, but as a result faith and religion are often hijacked by those seeking to enhance their own power. With this dichotomy in mind, “Beyond Our Differences” calls upon key religious leaders, politicians, and luminaries in their fields and it asks what it is that inspires them to affect positive change.
NOW hosted by David Brancaccio. / June 26, 2009, Homes for the homeless
DVD HV4505.N69 2009
“American streets are littered with foreclosed houses, but one daring advocate says these homes shouldn’t go to waste. He encourages and facilitates homeless squatting. It’s an idea that addresses two issues at once–homelessness and foreclosed homes–and it’s also illegal. NOW travels to Miami to meet with Max Rameau, an advocate for the homeless. Rameau’s organization, Take Back the Land, identifies empty homes that are still livable, and tries to find responsible families willing to take the enormous legal risks of moving in. Rameau, who considers his mission an act of civil disobedience, says it’s immoral to keep homes vacant while there are human beings living on the street. But while these squatters have morality in their hearts, they don’t have the law on their side.”
The Hungry Heart/
DVD RC 564.66.V5 H86 2013
The Hungry Heart provides an intimate look at the often hidden world of prescription drug addiction through the world of Vermont Pediatrician Fred Holmes who works with patients struggling with this disease. Dr. Holmes prescribes suboxone to his patients struggling with prescription drug addiction. Much like methadone, suboxone helps many addicts in their recovery process- for some taking suboxone is a crucial stepping stone to long term recovery, for others it is a crutch, for others suboxone is abused and diverted onto the street. Through the film we see Dr. Holmes struggling with these challenges and trying to make sense and keep the faith in the midst of many contradictions. Most importantly however, as the film progresses we begin to see the simple but profound connection that Dr. Holmes creates with each patient. The film shines a light on the healing power of conversation and the need for connection that many of these young addicts yearn for but do not have in their lives. In addition, the film interviews a number of older addicts who talk about their recovery process juxtaposed against Fred’s patients. The road to recovery is paved with both success stories and strewn with relapses, downfalls and tragic losses. However, through the movie we see the many faces and diverse .
Makers: Women Who Make America
HQ 1391.U5 M35 2013
MAKERS: Women Who Make America tells the remarkable story of the most sweeping social revolution in American history, as women have asserted their rights to a full and fair share of political power, economic opportunity, and personal autonomy in the last 50 years. It’s a revolution that has unfolded in public and private, in courts and Congress, in the boardroom and the bedroom, changing not only what the world expects from women, but what women expect from themselves. MAKERS brings this story to life with priceless archival treasures and poignant, often funny interviews with those who led the fight, those who opposed it, and those first generations to benefit from its success. Trailblazing women like Hillary Rodham Clinton, Ellen DeGeneres, Gloria Steinem, Eleanor Holmes Norton, and Linda Alvarado share their memories, as do countless women who challenged the status quo in industries from coal-mining to medicine. MAKERS captures with music, humor, and the voices of the women who lived through these turbulent times the dizzying joy, aching frustration, and ultimate triumph of a movement that turned America upside-down.
