Understanding Religion and Spirituality in Clinical Practice : by Clark, Margaret.(DLC)1919890;
COVER -- CONTENTS -- ABOUT THE AUTHOR -- PREFACE TO THE SERIES -- Introduction -- CHAPTER ONE The legacy of Freud on religion -- CHAPTER TWO Jung: the symbolic and the arcane -- CHAPTER THREE The creation of our internal image of God: influences personal, developmental, and cultural -- CHAPTER FOUR Spirituality, and God as a transitional object -- CHAPTER FIVE Evaluating spiritual and mystical experiences: from inspiration to addiction -- CHAPTER SIX Evaluating spiritual and mystical experiences: the importance of the ego in seeing visions or hearing voices -- CHAPTER SEVEN Evaluating spiritual and mystical experiences: from identification to possession-myths of the hero/saviour and of the Devil -- CHAPTER EIGHT Conclusion -- REFERENCES -- INDEX.Understanding Religion and Spirituality in Clinical Practice is a volume in the clinical practice monograph series from the Society of Analytical Psychology. This series is intended primarily for trainees on psychotherapy and psychodynamic counselling courses, and for those who are newly qualified.Here, Margaret Clark considers the difficulties clinicians may encounter when patients talk about God or about their spiritual life, and how necessary it is for therapists to examine their own image of God and their own understanding of spirituality, so that they can distinguish these from those of their patients. She emphasizes how varied are people's images and understanding of what "God" stands for, and how in healthy development these will change over time.The book demonstrates, through numerous clinical vignettes, how clinicians can understand a patient's talking about religion or about God - hearing the voice of God, having a vision of God, or being convinced that God wants them to act in a particular way; or, equally, seeing the Devil.The book differentiates between religion and spirituality, and between religious and spiritual aims and practices. It also distinguishes some mystical and spiritual experiences from those which are considered psychotic.There is reference to major theorists throughout, particularly to Freud, Jung, and Winnicott.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.

Eigen in Seoul : Faith and Transformation. by Eigen, Michael.(DLC)1751638;
COVER -- CONTENTS -- PREFACE -- ABOUT THE AUTHOR -- CHAPTER ONE -- CHAPTER TWO -- CHAPTER THREE -- REFERENCES.This book is a transcription of a three day, eighteen hour seminar Eigen gave in Seoul in 2009. It takes forward and complements the Seoul seminar in 2007 (Eigen in Seoul: Volume 1: Madness and Murder).Eigen believes that 'faith plays an important role in transformational processes in psychotherapy. I don't mean "belief". Belief may be a necessary part of the human condition but it tends to prematurely organize processes that remain unknown. For me, faith supports experimental exploration, imaginative conjecture, experiential probes. The more we explore therapy, the more we appreciate how much our response capacity can grow. We are responsive beings, for good and ill. Too often, our responses hem us in. We short-circuit growth of responsiveness. Yet it is possible to become aware of the rich world our responsive nature opens, places it takes us, feelings with as yet no name, hints of contact that may never be exhausted..'.The author uses parts of W. R. Bion's and D. W. Winnicott's texts as points of departure for some of the explorations in the seminar and draw from his own work as well, weaving clinical and cultural concerns, the state of our persons and nations, how we feel, get along with ourselves, and obstacles that dog us but are widely undefined or defined wrongly. He concludes that if psychoanalysis has taught us anything, it is that we are persecuted by our own nature, which finds voice and resonance in structures of the outside world.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.
