Harness the Therapeutic Power of the Superhero! Application of the Star Wars Adoption Narrative Emotional Literacy and the Incredible Hulk Batman and Trauma What Would Superman Do--An Adlerian Approach? With an incisive historical foreword by John Shelton Lawrence and insight from contributors such as Michael Brody, Patty Scanlon, and Roger Kaufman, Lawrence Rubin takes us on a dynamic tour of the benefits of using these icons of popular culture and fantasy in counseling and play therapy. Not only can superheroes assist in clinical work with children, but Rubin demonstrates how they can facilitate growth and change with teen and adults. Early childhood memories of how we felt pretending to have the power to save the world or our families in the face of impending danger still resonate in our adult lives, making the use of superheroes attractive as well, to the creative counselor. In presenting case studies and wisdom gleaned from practicing therapists' experience, Lawrence Rubin shows how it is possible to uncover children's secret identities, assist treatment of adolescents with sexual behavior problems, and inspire the journey of individuation for gay and lesbian clients, all by paying attention to our intrinsic social need for superhero fantasy and play.

Sandplay is one of the burgeoning Jungian therapies. Developed by Margaret Lowenfeld and Dora Kalff, it is age-proof, gender-proof, and is nonverbal: thus allowing articulation for nonverbal patients. It also provides important amplification of the material of analysis. For those wishing to explore its potential, there is little available. Jungian analyst and leading sandplay exponent Joel Ryce-Menuhin has written an engaging account for those who want to know more. "Jungian Sandplay" contains case histories and is illustrated in full color and will be valuable to students and practitioners of Jungian analysis and therapy.

Margaret Lowenfeld realized that play was the medium through which children worked out their emotional conflicts and that it was a cognitive process which could be analyzed, in a non-Freudian way, to understand and deal with behavior problems and also perhaps help children to develop. She developed the then new concept of non-verbal communication, and methods and tools for using play as therapy and as a therapeutic and analytical tool. This book follows on from her classic book "Play in Childhood," which was published in 1935.

In this book, John Beebe reveals much about the nature of integrity while honoring its central mystery. He traces the evolution of the concept from a moral and theological notion to a psychological one. Viewing anxiety and shame as functions of integrity, he shows the contributions depth psychology can make to integrity's development. Drawing on his own years of experience as a psychotherapist, Beebe shows how the holding environment of psychotherapy can use delight and rage, dreams and transference to reveal and foster individual integrity.
