In The Bi-Personal Field: Experiences in Child Analysis, Antonino Ferro devised a new model of the relationship between patient and analyst. In the Analyst's Consulting Room complements and develops this model by concentrating on adults. From the standpoint of the "analytic field", Antonino Ferro explores basic psychoanalytic concepts, such as criteria for analysability and ending the analysis, transformations that occur during the session, the impasse and negative therapeutic reactions, sexuality and setting. The author explores certain themes in greater depth, including: * ways in which characters that appear during sessions can be interpreted * continual indications given by the patient during the emotional upheavals of the field * the function of "narrator" which the analyst takes on to mark the boundaries of the possible worlds. Through clinical narrative, Ferro renders Bion's often complex ideas in a very personal and accessible way, making this book invaluable for psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, psychiatrists and psychologists.

Although the discussion focuses mainly on the areas of painting and architecture, the reader can apply what is stated to virtually any area of artistic endeavor.

Sometimes, an appropriate message at just the right time may be the difference between whether a person lives or dies; whether a person is victorious or is swept away in ignominious defeat; whether a person is miraculously healed, or passes away under the ravages of a wasting disease; whether a person is freed from the chains and shackles of a debilitating addiction, or remains an unwilling but helpless captive to destructive substances. At times like these it becomes incumbent that this life-saving message is committed to the hands of a faithful messenger, one who will not distort, pervert or re-engineer the message. It is noteworthy also that the more important a message is, the more careful is the selection process for the vessel chosen to bear the tidings. Since God and His Word are one, He jealously guards its impartation. “A Message from the Throne Room” is a prophetic word in season from God to His children and is designed for times such as these. God has chosen a vessel with whom He shares deep intimacy to bear the glad tidings that this book represents. It is obvious that some of the deep revelations could only have come from intense, “unalloyed” fellowship. Essentially, the book is about faith without which of course God says you cannot please Him. You need faith to receive healing, to face your fears, to discover your life’s purpose, to deal with low self-esteem. You also need faith to find direction as well as in times of need, while waiting on God and battling insecurities. Finally “A Message from the Throne” teaches you how to stay anchored during life’s storms and when you are feeling discouraged. It concludes by calling you to examine the sovereignty of God. Cast in the style of a daily devotional, this is a book that can be digested by both young and mature believers alike. Sit back and digest for your good and that of the world around you, this undiluted, refreshing Message from the Throne Room.

A Handbook for Clinicians
Author: Seymour L. Halleck
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Once upon a time only forensic psychiatrists had much to do with law and the legal system. Now, hardly a day passes in the life of a clinician without some significant encounter with the interface between the law and the practice of psychiatry. That interface extends all the way from the general regulation of clinical practice to the specifics of clinical man agement of individual patients. It includes, like the chapters of this book, such important topics as informed consent, right to treatment, privilege and confidentiality, patients' rights, competency, psychiatric testimony, malpractice, and liability. Dr. Halleck is one of the professions' most distinguished thinkers and authors in the field of psychiatry and law, and is this year's recipient of the coveted Isaac Ray Award of the American Psychiatric Association. Having spent his entire academic and professional life deeply involved in the clinical practice of psychiatry, he is particularly well suited to understand and respond to the clinician's need for a clear and concise elucidation of those areas of psychiatry and law which are involved in the daily work of psychiatrists and all mental health professionals.

Inspirational Christmas Messages from America's Preachers
Author: Olivia Cloud
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
"Is there an idea or a dream that is lingering in the back of your mind this Christmas season?" asks the Reverend Robert H. Schuller in Joy to the World: Inspirational Christmas Messages from America's Preachers. "Is there some long-lost hope that you just cannot forget? God often comes through these thoughts. It is God at work in you." "Track what we call our good fortune and we shall see God clearly in our lives," says the Reverend Gardner C. Taylor in his message. He asked the question "Did you ever sit among your family and, strangely, feel a thankfulness which made you somewhat shamefacedly brush a tear away? You heard the angels sing!" "Christmas is a time of establishing and celebrating many traditions," begins the Reverend Paula White in her reflection. This is but a sampling of dozens of messages on the true meaning of Christmas included in this first book to celebrate the spirituality of Christmas by bringing together a diverse collection of messages from Christian leaders from across the country. Contributors to this collection represent congregations from Hawaii to New York to Atlanta and all the regions surrounding and in between. These inspirational words are from men and women who minister to and console young and old from all walks of life and who reflect the range of ethnicities and Christian religious traditions that characterizes America today. This timeless treasure trove of inspiration and teaching has something for everyone and is the perfect gift for the season of giving. Joy to the World shares the spirit of Christmas throughout the year.
