It's Not Always Depression: Working the Change Triangle to Listen to the Body, Discover Core Emotions, and Connect to your Authentic Self

It's Not Always Depression: Working the Change Triangle to Listen to the Body, Discover Core Emotions, and Connect to your Authentic Self
Jacobs Hendel, Hilary

"The Change Triangle is a map. It's a guide to carry you from a place of disconnection back to your true self. It's a step-by-step process for feeling better. When you work the Change Triangle, you are using a tool that is at the center of Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), an emerging therapeutic method that teaches patients to identify the defenses and inhibitory emotions (shame, disgust, anxiety) that prevent them from being in touch with their core emotions (joy, anger, sadness, fear, and excitement) that lead us to an openhearted state of the authentic self: it's where we are calm, curious, connected, compassionate, confident, courageous, clear. In this book, Hendel tells stories of working the Change Triangle with patients and teaches us how to apply these principles to our daily lives"--Provided by publisher.

Sold Into Egypt: Journeys Into Human Being

Sold Into Egypt: Journeys Into Human Being
L'Engle, Madeleine

"We trace a new journey, that of Jacob's favored son, Joseph--a journey on many levels: from the Canaan country abduction to pagan Egypt, with its slavery and sophistication; from poverty to riches; from insignificance to the power of privilege and leadership; from the foolish arrogance of youth to the seasoned wisdom of maturity; from parochial narrowness to the authentic humanness that comes with hard lessons learned and relationships restored. Madeleine L'Engle joins Joseph on this spiritual expedition as she herself moves through grief. With the loss of her beloved husband, she traverses the barren desert of bereavement. And just as Yahweh was Joseph's strong companion on the desert journey, in the house of Potiphar, in prison, and during his rise to power, so God was with the author of the this book. And, she assures us, He will be with us as we, too, move toward the humanness of true maturity"--Page [4] of cover.

The Years

The Years
Ernaux, Annie, 1940-

"Available in English for the first time, the latest astonishing, bestselling, and award-winning book by Annie Ernaux. The Years is a personal narrative of the period 1941 to 2006 told through the lens of memory, impressions past and present -- even projections into the future -- photos, books, songs, radio, television and decades of advertising, headlines, contrasted with intimate conflicts and writing notes from six decades of diaries. Local dialect, words of the times, slogans, brands and names for the ever-proliferating objects, are given voice here. The voice we recognize as the author's continually dissolves and re-emerges. Ernaux makes the passage of time palpable. Time itself, inexorable, narrates its own course, consigning all other narrators to anonymity. A new kind of autobiography emerges, at once subjective and impersonal, private and collective. On its 2008 publication in France, The Years came as a surprise. Though Ernaux had for years been hailed as a beloved, bestselling and award-winning author, The Years was in many ways a departure: both an intimate memoir "written" by entire generations, and a story of generations telling a very personal story. Like the generation before hers, the narrator eschews the "I" for the "we" (or "they", or "one") as if collective life were inextricably intertwined with a private life that in her parents' generation ceased to exist. She writes of her parents' generation (and could be writing of her own book): "From a common fund of hunger and fear, everything was told in the "we" and impersonal pronouns.""--Provided by publisher.
