Healing Fiction — meaning both “fiction that heals” and “the process of healing the fiction itself” — is a radical revision of the act of therapy. One of the most influential psychological writers of our time, Hillman conceives and practices therapy as an imaginative art, intimately bound with poetics — the making with words, fictioning. To heal the symptom, he argues, we must heal the person, and to heal the person we must first heal the story in which the person has imagined himself. Three essays “revision” the work of Freud, Jung and Adler through the role of fiction in their thought and practice.

Dee Ann Parrish

The message of this clear and sympathetic book is that dysfunctional relationships—characterized by predictable patterns of vicious circles – can be healed. Reassuring case histories, drawn from the author’s own therapeutic practice, demonstrate why relationships disintegrate, and show how they can be made whole again. Here are proven techniques designed to short-circuit destructive habits. Readers will learn to use “diffusers” to keep conflicts from escalating, to gauge levels of emotional intimacy and identify barriers to closeness, to examine their own levels of communication and quality in listening, to use “I” statements to identify problematic issues, and uncover inter-generational patterns of dysfunction. For anyone seeking to improve a relationship or reconnect with a partner -with or without the aid of a therapist – this is essential reading.

With a list of things not to say (from “You look good!” to “Take care of yourself!”) to suggestions for getting along with people you know well (but ought to know better), this is a social survival guide for the 21st century.

This practical manual by an experienced trauma therapist offers a wide variety of therapeutic methods for dealing with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder as well easy to understand explanations for why post-traumatic symptoms occur.

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder may afflict not just war veterans but anyone who has suffered a severe physical or emotional assault. This sane and practical manual by an experienced trauma therapist offers a wide variety of therapeutic methods as well as easy-to-understand explanations for why post-traumatic symptoms occur. Dr. Colodzin’s view is that most post-traumatic symptoms were once in fact adaptive reactions to the situations in which they developed, but are no longer appropriate to a changed, live situation.

The book is for individuals suffering from Post-traumatic Stress, their friends, families, and therapists. It offers techniques to help overcome its often paralyzing effects: from anxiety, depression, and rage to flashbacks, insomnia, nightmares, and substance abuse.

Bruce McClelland

By the author of The Dracula Poems, this cycle continues McClelland’s involvement with archetypal motifs, this time centered specifically on the Indo-Germnic tales collected by the Grimms. Each concerns a tale or folk-mythic theme, some more available than others, & each intentionally avoids mere retelling, but chooses rather to articulate the salient dynamics of the particular story. The cycle means as well to get past the trap of interpretation—as the Prelude says, “these stories are not therapies”—for to interpret, in this case, is to deny the activity of the imagination looking at its own history. The result is an arrangement of lyric poems, each capable of standing alone, yet together forming a reasonable narrative of that process known as individuation, with the Wolf doing the talking.

Christina Crawford

Christina Crawford’s devastating memoir, Mommie Dearest (over 5,000,000 copies sold), first as a book and later as a Hollywood film, made the American public aware of violence in the family.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Jason W. Brown

Jason W. Brown’s highly original approach to unfolding mental content through qualitatively different stages—the theory of microgenesis – developed out of direct clinical observation of patients’ symptoms in relation to focal injuries to the brain. Microgenesis – the “rapidly flickering recapitulation of an individual’s entire past as the content in which each moment of the now is experienced” (Deane Juhan) – is a process theory, as distinct from the localization and cognitivist psychologies that have dominated psychology and neurology for so many years.

Brown’s unique approach began with disorders of language, followed by problems of action and perception; these in turn led to a general theory of the mind and questions on the nature of self and world, the creative aspects of thought and perception, and the nature of time. The theory connects to Whitehead’s process metaphysics and even to some aspects of Buddhist thought. This book is a contribution to the philosophy of mind from the perspective of microgenetic theory.

“Readers who immerse themselves in [Jason w. Brown’s Time, Will, and Mental Process] will be transformed, never to think the same way again about the mind.” – The American Journal of Psychiatry

What is the shape of a life dedicated to poetry—and how, and from where, does such a dedication take hold? Moreover is that foundation a matter of decision, necessity and/or “grace”—or all three to degrees—and what are its costs? Combined with a selection of poems from these three distinguished poets, who together form a core of the Second Generation of New York School poets, Andrew McCarron pursues these questions, and more, through a series of biographical essays addressing each poet’s life story and psychological complexion—and what critical insights such gleanings might lead. The poetry alone of North, Towle and Violi—exact in its execution and wide in its—is of enduring value and utility; juxtaposed with and in part seen through McCarron’s exegeses, these qualities assume a poignancy that seems to lead us further into an examination of our human fate and of what it’s all about: or as Towle writes, “in between the great saga of America, / lying like a lost nickel in New York’s platonic gutter.” As long as interest in the New York School holds—and in fact continues to grow—Three New York Poets will remain an essential guide.
