In these seven letters, practising psychiatrist Vincenzo Di Nicola offers wisdom to a young therapist from 25 years of experience conducting relational therapy. Ranging from what to read and how to begin therapy, the letters cover therapeutic temperaments and technique, how to create a relational dialogue, the myths of individual psychology and the need for relational psychology, the evolution of therapy in the past century and when therapy is over-all the while looking forward to the relational practices of the coming community. This book complements Di Nicola's model of working with families presented in A Stranger in the Family: Culture, Families, and Therapy (New York and London: W.W. Norton). -- It's a beautiful idea, this project of turning to young people... The relational dialogue offers an important new direction of study to discover the deep basis of the therapeutic alliance, in order to understand the still too-little known phenomenon of "change..".

Letters to a Young Psychologist consists of a series of essays in the form of letters. As a primer on the subject of psychology, it is unique because it comes through the lens of a novelist with insightful references to the junction of psychology and literature. Early in the book, Solares gives an overview of why the field of psychology fascinates him: "Vast regions of the human mind haven't yet been mapped." He encourages the reader: "I can only hope that you will fall madly in love with [psychology]. I give you these letters thoroughly drenched in that same spirit, starting with Freud and ending with the discovery of hypnosis and the volatile introduction of drugs into psychotherapy." Solares explores Freud's contributions and limitations, and does the same for Jung. He also tackles Behaviorism. Pragmatism, spirituality, an entertaining predecessor of Freud, Franz Mesmer, the use and misuse of drugs in psychological treatment, and role of meditation in psychology. The Golden Coin: Freud or Jung?, an award-winning play, features an enlightening and lively intellectual duel between the two famous psychologists of the title, one of whom visits the other from the afterlife.

Dead but dreaming. Don't be a ghost until you are dead...This is the lot to which we are born: we are creatures subject to as many illsof the mind as of the body.-Lucius Annaeus Seneca ("Letters to a Young Therapist" - Vincenzo Di Nicola)

"In Spain, the dead are more alive than the dead of any other country in the world." ---Federico Garcia Lorca One is the other's strength. They are just too similar. Their pull is like that of a magnet. Even before the twins formally met, they still felt the other's emotion, thoughts, and energy. On an energetic level, the presence of the other twin is so strong it's almost like being with the other half constantly. The brothers' union moves them to live toward their highest destiny -- to walk on fire. They remain divinely tested to the degree that they emit crystal light and pure unconditional love. The level of telepathy shared by the twins lets them almost hear each other out loud -- at times even see each other across distance. The image of union with God through pain was particularly very important to the spirituality of the past, and indeed remains important today since this concept is at the heart of almost all Christian asceticism. Even the American tales of Edgar Allan Poe in which reflect "the complete desire of fusion with the beloved being...ends in vampirism...[and]...nervous ecstasy." Sublimation in vampire mythology is always enacted in the surrogate sex act: The relationship between sexual ecstasy and religious ecstasy is represented vividly in St. Teresa of Avila's rapture -- ending by the piercing of her heart with an angle's flaming dart. Her ecstasy is an expression of her spiritual desire to be one with God -- the spiritual reception of God's saint...as St. Teresa serves Him as lover, Even while she actually becomes Him. "One cannot avoid the shadow unless one remains neurotic, and as long as one is neurotic one has omitted the shadow." --Carl Jung. How we live our lives revolves around our ideas about how we define death. What world you end up living in depends at least in part on your use of language. Does the sleep of reason produce monsters? Or does the dream of reason produce monsters? Monsters and nocturnal creatures come alive when reason is inactive. In Hell matters are worse: men kill and devour each other. Art replicates or divulges memory: art as the forgotten, art as experience. What if art does not always reproduce memory? Maybe memory loss is the true source of someone's artistic creative ability? The lesson about Spain's foremost poet/playwright Federico Garcia Lorca is that the poets who are alive are a threat to repression, but dead poets can be safely embalmed as national legends or treasures. The secrets of the past still hold their power for revenge, if exposed. But Garcia Lorca is maybe more important today as a symbol than as a poet. Today things are not so much about Federico Garcia Lorca but about memory and history-- about how poets are given most of their power not by those who love them, but by those who fear them. Dead but dreaming. Don't be a ghost until you are dead... This is the lot to which we are born: we are creatures subject to as many ills of the mind as of the body. -Lucius Annaeus Seneca ("Letters to a Young Therapist" - Vincenzo Di Nicola)"

Letters to a Young Psychoanalyst

Written in the form of letters from an experienced analyst to a young colleague, Letters to a Young Psychoanalyst expands the psychoanalytic frame to include South American, French, and British theory, and examine a wide variety of theoretical and clinical topics. Letters to a Young Psychoanalyst is ground-breaking in more than one respect. It re-examines major psychoanalytic theories in the light of rich clinical practice, and in the light of the practice of friendship, whilst portraying the practice of analysis as the choice of a personal code of ethics. Covering such core issues as transference, trauma, hysteria, the influence of the mother, and love and hate, and drawing on the work of notable analysts such as Winnicott, McDougall, Pankow and Ferenczi, the book explores the many facets of healing function of psychoanalysis in practice and discloses the workings of the psyche in human existence. This book considers psychoanalysis a humanist endeavour, focussing on its healing function and using captivating examples to illustrate different modes of commitment on the part of the analyst. Rejecting a view of psychoanalysis as a painful and laborious process, the book insists instead on the joyous and passionate nature of the work of psychic elaboration. Uniquely, the transmission of knowledge and skill which it provides, constituting a veritable training, is not at all didactic in tone. It places the two interlocutors, as well as the reader, on the same level: people who share the desire to remain attentive to themselves and to others, and who believe that empathy heals, within the setting of therapy and in human relations in general. Written in a remarkably engaging and accessible style, Letters to a Young Psychoanalyst will appeal to psychoanalysts and psychoanalytic psychotherapists, students of all levels studying in these fields, as well as lay readers wishing to understand fundamental psychoanalytic concepts.

The unexpected loss of a client can be a lonely and isolating experience for therapists. While family and friends can ritually mourn the deceased, the nature of the therapeutic relationship prohibits therapists from engaging in such activities. Practitioners can only share memories of a client in circumscribed ways, while respecting the patient's confidentiality. Therefore, they may find it difficult to discuss the things that made the therapeutic relationship meaningful. Similarly, when a therapist loses someone in their private lives, they are expected to isolate themselves from grief, since allowing one's personal life to enter the working relationship can interfere with a client's self-discovery and healing. For therapists caught between their grief and the empathy they provide for their clients, this collection explores the complexity of bereavement within the practice setting. It also examines the professional and personal ramifications of death and loss for the practicing clinician. Featuring original essays from longstanding practitioners, the collection demonstrates the universal experience of bereavement while outlining a theoretical framework for the position of the bereft therapist. Essays cover the unexpected death of clients and patient suicide, personal loss in a therapist's life, the grief of clients who lose a therapist, disastrous loss within a community, and the grief resulting from professional losses and disruptions. The first of its kind, this volume gives voice to long-suppressed thoughts and emotions, enabling psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, and other mental health specialists to achieve the connection and healing they bring to their own work.

The 25th anniversary edition of the iconic book, revised and updated for 21st-century adolescent girls and their families. In 1994, Reviving Ophelia was published, and it shone a much-needed spotlight on the problems faced by adolescent girls. The book became iconic and helped to reframe the national conversation about what author Mary Pipher called "a girl-poisoning culture" surrounding adolescents. Fast forward to today, and adolescent girls and the parents, teachers, and counselors who care about them find themselves confronting many of the same challenges Pipher wrote about originally as well as new ones specific to today. Girls still struggle with misogyny, sexism, and issues of identity and self-esteem. But they're also more isolated than ever before: They don't talk face-to-face to the people around them, including their peers, as they used to: They're texting or on social media for hours at a time. And while girls today are less likely to be in trouble for their drinking or sexual behavior, they have a greater chance of becoming depressed, anxious, or suicidal. In this revised and updated Reviving Ophelia, Pipher and her daughter, Sara Pipher Gilliam (who was a teenager at the time of the book's original publication), have incorporated these new issues for a 21st-century readership. In addition to examining the impact that social media has on adolescent girls' lives today, Pipher and Gilliam explore the rising and empowering importance of student activism in girls' lives, the wider acceptance of diverse communities among young people, and the growing disparities between urban and rural, rich and poor, and how they can affect young girls' sense of self-worth. With a new foreword and afterword and chapters that explore these topics, this new edition of Reviving Ophelia builds on the relevance of the original as it provides key insights into the challenges and opportunities facing adolescent girls today. The approach Pipher and Gilliam take in the new edition is just what it was in the original: a timely, readable combination of insightful research and real-world examples that illuminate the challenges young women face and the ways to address them. This updated Reviving Ophelia looks at 21st century adolescent girls through fresh eyes, with insights and ideas that will help new generations of readers.

This volume is filled with anecdotal examples of social work with individuals and groups in a variety of settings that include nonprofit agencies, child welfare services, and veteran's health care. Each story is followed by the author's personal and professional insights on how these experiences have informed her practice. She created this work in response to the need for undergraduate and graduate students to hear about real-life experiences working with traumatized clients and for new social workers experiencing the "baptism by fire" as they enter the profession. The author's main message to all social workers is that they can be more effective by getting "back to basics" and staying in touch with the core values of the profession. She notes that one of the most important services that social workers can provide is to be fully present in "witnessing the pain" of a traumatized client. She feels that the self-knowledge and compassion that emerge from this mindfulness make all the difference in working with clients who are overwhelmed by difficult circumstances.
