The doctor has Taken the Pulse of our Modern Way of Life, and concluded that it is very sick-perhaps terminally ill. How did this dangerous state of affairs come to be? And-is there a cure? In this ground-breaking book, noted Chilean-born psychiatrist and consciousness pioneer Dr. Claudio Naranjo, who first created descriptions of the Enneagram character types, now applies over 30 years of transformational work with individuals and groups to the societal realm, to heal our collective illness. His diagnosis? "The great problem of civilization is none other than civilization itself," he declares. Its root cause? Patriarchy: a condition that is deeper, wider, and closer to home than you know. For patriarchy thrives not only in the outer world (the economy, war, racism, child abuse, oppression of women, human rights violations) but also in the workings of our own conditioned mind. A virus that masquerades as ourselves, it is killing life on the planet- and within us. The remedy? To transform our consciousness by integrating and finding balance within our own "intra-psychic family"-our "three brains," corresponding to the "Inner Father," "Inner Mother," and "Inner Child"-through a new Education oriented to personal and collective evolution. For healing civilization is an inside job - and the future of true civilization is in our hands. Healing Civilization: Bringing Personal Transformation into the Societal Realm through Education and the Integration of the Intra-Psychic Family

Personality Theories: Critical Perspectives is the groundbreaking, final text written by Albert Ellis, long considered the founder of cognitive behavioral therapies. The book provides students with supporting and contradictory evidence for the development of personality theories through time. Without condemning the founding theorists who came before him, Ellis builds on more than a century of psychological research to re-examine the theories of Freud, Jung, and Adler while taking an equally critical look at modern, research-based theories, including his own.

In this long-awaited description of the body-centered therapy developed by Marion Rosen, the reader begins to understand how emotional and physical ailments can be addressed through the gentle touch of the Rosen practitioner. Rosen explains how the practitioner identifies tensions in the body that point to the source of a problem and how that awareness guides the healing process. With the help of psychotherapist Susan Brenner, the director of Rosen Center East and one of Marion's first students, she describes the origins of her method; how people reveal their emotions in body postures; barriers they set up to love, self-expression, and intimacy, and how Rosen work enables a client to move beyond these barriers. Treatments for asthma, migraine headaches, heart problems, weak immune systems, and psychosomatic illnesses are chronicled. Essays by doctors, psychologists, and Rosen practitioners describe how this method of touch, words, and acceptance guides their work, and complete this remarkable tribute to a visionary woman.

Lively and readible, learned and insightful, this book will be indispensible both for professionals and the lay-reader, demonstrating why Fritz Perls was truly the father of the now-flourishing human potential movement.
