A Story of Crime, Punishment, and Love
Author: Emili LeBlanc
Publisher: Balboa Press
View: 2647Bondage and imprisonment start in the mind. However, our healing and freedom also, start in the mind. Our intention to be free and happy is set in the heart and carried out by the mind and with faith. We simply need to accept the invitation. God built us perfectly and beautifully and gave us many powerful gifts. These gifts are not visible to the naked eye. These gifts are built in. They are natural and intrinsic and it is imperative that we find them and use them. These gifts are when we take our power back from wherever the place was we left it, or whoever we gave it to; places like addictions, poor decision making or in bad relationships with other people on any level. Dauntless A Story of Crime, Punishment, and Love was written to illustrate a journey of overcoming adversity.

Psychoanalytic transformations in dreaming and narration
Author: Antonino Ferro
View: 5601In Torments of the Soul, Antonino Ferro revisits and expands on a theme that has long been at the heart of his work: the study of dreams during sleep and in the waking state, and the psychoanalytic narrative. Following Bion, he focuses on the importance of what he sees as the task of contemporary psychoanalysis for generating, containing and transforming previously unmanageable emotions with a clinical psychoanalytic context. Antonino Ferro explores the concepts of 'transformations in dreaming', the session as a dream, individuals transformed into characters, the interpretation of these characters, and readings of them as the functioning of a single mind or as an analytic field created by the meeting of two minds: the client's and the analyst's. Here, a new identity, the analytic field, is formed from the reverie of both participants, which makes it possible to work on complex, nonlinear phenomena in a radical way, creating a 'royal road' to the unconscious communication of the patient. Torments of the Soul contains a plethora of clinical vignettes from the author's extensive psychoanalytic work with adults and children to illustrate the substantial theoretical progression he advocates here. Offering significant and important new interpretations of theories and ways of working with patients, this book will be essential reading for psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, psychologists, students of these fields and those interested in the human sciences.
How Choosing Your Attitude Gives You a Better Perspective on Life and Work

Author: Virginia Woolf
Publisher: OUP Oxford
Category: Literary Collections
View: 5488'Intellectual freedom depends on material things. Poetry depends on intellectual freedom. And women have always been poor...' In these two classic essays of feminist literature, Woolf argues passionately for women's intellectual freedom and their role in challenging the drive towards fascism and conflict. In A Room of One's Own she explores centuries of limitations placed on women, as well as celebrating the creative achievements of the women writers who overcame these obstacles. In this first history of women's writing, she describes the importance of education, financial independence, and equality of opportunity to creative freedom. Three Guineas was written under the threat of fascism and impending war. A radical articulation of Woolf's pacifist politics, it investigates the causes of gender inequalities and the ways in which women's historic outsider position make them crucial in the prevention of war. Both these works started life as talks to groups of young women, and their engaging wit and informality establish Woolf as one of the twentieth-century's greatest essayists. Their arguments continue to reverberate in feminist discourse to this day. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

View: 4140Deal With It. That's a strong phrase, right? One interpretation is; “here’s how it is, you have to put up with it”. It can be a bratty, unilateral, condescending, dismissive statement. Another interpretation is; “let’s cope with things how they are, but work hard to change them for the better”. An encompassing, generous, creative statement. This book is about choosing which of these two statements you want to embrace as a software professional. It's about choosing how you, as a software developer, deal with our industry and your day-to-day work.
