A renowned holistic physician and lecturer skillfully lays bare the inner workings of the subconscious mind to reveal how emotionally charged events from the past can become "trapped emotions"--emotional energies that literally inhabit ones body. Dr. Nelson explains clearly and concisely how trapped emotions can create pain, malfunction, and eventual disease--and ways of ridding oneself of that baggage.

This book is the fourth volume of the book Brain Functioning and Regeneration and is written as a basis for a programming project for dream analysis, DreamWorks, and the production of a dream virtual monitoring software. I would like to emphasize again that many statements in this text are claims and still not approved. However, as a model, they are essential to complete a detailed frame for programming intentions. The claims will be counterchecked with latest researches and will be refined for the noncontingencies continuously. I hope that in the near future, it helps to develop the unknown areas in the subject as well as provide an advanced software that is unique in its subject and services.
Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychotherapy provides a bionetwork theory unifying empirical evidence in cognitive neuroscience and psychopathology to explain how emotion, learning, and reinforcement affect personality and its extremes. The book uses the theory to explain research results in both disciplines and to predict future findings, as well as to suggest what the theory and evidence say about how we should be treating disorders for maximum effectiveness. While theoretical in nature, the book has practical applications, and takes a mathematical approach to proving its own theorems. The book is unapologetically physical in nature, describing everything we think and feel by way of physical mechanisms and reactions in the brain. This unique marrying of cognitive neuroscience and clinical psychology provides an opportunity to better understand both. Unifying theory for cognitive neuroscience and clinical psychology Describes the brain in physical terms via mechanistic processes Systematically uses the theory to explain empirical evidence in both disciplines Theory has practical applications for psychotherapy Ancillary material may be found at: http://booksite.elsevier.com/9780124200715 including an additional chapter and supplements

EMDR Therapy is a psychotherapy approach based on standard procedures and protocols. Using EMDR Therapy’s standard procedures and protocols as its template, this book presents step-by-step scripts that enable new practitioners and seasoned EMDR clinicians, trainers, and consultants alike to incorporate EMDR Therapy into their case conceptualizations and treatment plans while working with patients who have issues related to trauma- and stressor-related conditions. These scripts can be put to use immediately and retain the complete integrity of EMDR Therapy by presenting the three-prong protocol (past memories, present triggers, and future templates) and the 11-step procedure essential to the standard practice of EMDR Therapy. They reinforce the specific parts, sequence, and language used to create an effective outcome, and illustrate how clinicians are using this framework to work with a variety of therapeutic difficulties and modalities while maintaining the integrity of the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) model. This text covers the use of EMDR Therapy with such conditions as reactive attachment disorder, PTSD, acute stress disorder, and persistent complex bereavement disorder, as well as with traumatized patients with psychosis, trauma in emergency (911) telecommunicators, and compassion fatigue. Scripts and summary sheets simplify the gathering of information and ensure documentation in clients’ charts in a consistent format. This facilitates quick retrieval of the essential issues and components needed by clinicians to create appropriate treatment plans and easy access to client information. Key Features: Describes how to use EMDR Therapy based on its standard procedures and protocols Addresses working with issues related to patients with trauma- and stressor-related conditions such as reactive attachment disorder, PTSD, acute stress disorder, and persistent complex bereavement Provides step-by-step scripts that enable practitioners to enhance their expertise more quickly and assist consultants with consultation Describes the three-prong protocol and the 11-step procedure essential to EMDR practice Includes summary sheets for each protocol to facilitate the gathering and quick retrieval of client information Emphasizes the importance of self-care for clinicians Available in print, ebook, and CD-ROM

I Initially wrote this book to retrieve my “voice” and it took on a life of its own. There are so many people that are struggling with their emotions and finding their voice. They have no understanding why their life is crumbling all around them. By sharing my story it is my hope that you will find the courage to go within and throw off the shackles of pain and suffering, to stand tall in the full Glory of your Essence, the love that you are and to retrieve your voice. To live in and from the Peace, Joy, Grace and Power that is your Essence is what we are here to be and do. We are “The One” that we have been waiting for. If my story opens the door for just one person, to find the Peace and Love they have been yearning for, it would have been worth everything. Life’s journeys are great adventures for all of us. But if we’re really lucky, some of them take us beyond anything we might have imagined. Mett e Christensen’s journey is surely one of those. We’re fortunate indeed to have her share it. George Greene, PhD I believe fervently in being the change that I want to see. It all starts with us as individuals. This book is about one amazing woman’s journey through a lifetime, and how it can transcend for all of us; it just starts from within you. It is filled with key reminders of universal tools that we oft en forget when we feel our lives are shaken to the core. I find it essential to keep around and reference back to as I walk through my own journey. J. Darland, Business Consultant

Originally published in 1983, the 14 chapters in this volume are based upon presentations made to a conference held at the University of Western Ontario in June, 1981. The primary purpose of that conference was to mark the 10th anniversary of the publication of Allan Paivio’s text, Imagery and Verbal Processes, and to acknowledge the continuing contribution that Paivio was making to imagery research and theory at the time. His landmark book had been the major publication in the field of imagery, and during the decade prior to this volume Paivio’s theorizing and research dominated the investigation of imaginal processes. It was felt the most appropriate way to honor his achievements and activities, was to hold a conference on current developments in imagery research and theory at the time.

Gendering Emotions in Organizations is an edited collection that explores the connections between gender and emotion in organizations. In its examination of these connections, this book focuses on two specific areas: emotional labour and the gendered nature of the expression of feelings at work. Drawing on a range of empirical data, including new work on the previously neglected area of men and emotions, Gendering Emotions in Organizations is the first to bring together emerging literature on this fascinating topic.

In his study of infants and children (including observations of his own baby's smiles and pouts), of the insane, of painting and sculpture, of cats and dogs and monkeys, and of the ways that people in different cultures express their feelings, Darwin's insights have not been surpassed by modern science. This definitive edition of Darwin's masterpiece contains a substantial new Introduction and Afterword by Paul Ekman. Ekman also provides commentaries that use the latest scientific knowledge to elaborate, support, and occasionally challenge Darwin's study. For this edition, Ekman has returned to Darwin's original notes in order to produce for the first time a corrected, authoritative text illustrated by drawings and photographs positioned exactly as its author intended. "This new edition of Darwin's extraordinary book is a major event in the human sciences."-Steven Pinker "This new comprehensive edition of Expression will introduce a new generation of readers to Darwin's masterpiece, undiminished and intensely relevant even 125 years after publication."-Oliver Sacks "Ekman's contribution to his edition of Darwin's 1872 monograph can count as a book in its own right."-Ian Hacking, Times Literary Supplement

Homesickness today is dismissed as a sign of immaturity, what children feel at summer camp, but in the nineteenth century it was recognized as a powerful emotion. When gold miners in California heard the tune "Home, Sweet Home," they sobbed. When Civil War soldiers became homesick, army doctors sent them home, lest they die. Such images don't fit with our national mythology, which celebrates the restless individualism of colonists, explorers, pioneers, soldiers, and immigrants who supposedly left home and never looked back. Using letters, diaries, memoirs, medical records, and psychological studies, this wide-ranging book uncovers the profound pain felt by Americans on the move from the country's founding until the present day. Susan Matt shows how colonists in Jamestown longed for and often returned to England, African Americans during the Great Migration yearned for their Southern homes, and immigrants nursed memories of Sicily and Guadalajara and, even after years in America, frequently traveled home. These iconic symbols of the undaunted, forward-looking American spirit were often homesick, hesitant, and reluctant voyagers. National ideology and modern psychology obscure this truth, portraying movement as easy, but in fact Americans had to learn how to leave home, learn to be individualists. Even today, in a global society that prizes movement and that condemns homesickness as a childish emotion, colleges counsel young adults and their families on how to manage the transition away from home, suburbanites pine for their old neighborhoods, and companies take seriously the emotional toll borne by relocated executives and road warriors. In the age of helicopter parents and boomerang kids, and the new social networks that sustain connections across the miles, Americans continue to assert the significance of home ties. By highlighting how Americans reacted to moving farther and farther from their roots, Homesickness: An American History revises long-held assumptions about home, mobility, and our national identity.
On December 23, 1985, Rachelle received a diary for her thirteenth birthday. Her first entry was a pact with God. Either she would have a boyfriend by New Year’s Eve or she would kill herself. She got a boyfriend. Twenty-six years later, Rachelle receives a different kind of gift for her 39th birthday: a visceral vision. When she turns 40, she will turn into a butterfly. After decades of delinquency, promiscuity, bulimia, alcoholism and two failed marriages, Rachelle is eager to shed her caterpillar life for good. She buys a new diary and makes a new pact, dedicating the next year to her butterfly emergence and vowing to follow any guidance the Universe provides. It whispers back two words: Inspired Ideas. CHRYSALIS: A Dark and Delicious Diary of Emergence chronicles Rachelle’s heart-wrenching, heart-healing metamorphic year. It is a profound and provocative memoir of forgiveness, acceptance and self-love.

This book deals with the results of theoretical and ex perimental studies of the emotions which my colleagues and I carried out over the last two decades. An interest in the psychology of emotions prompted us to undertake an analysis of the creative legacy of K. S. Stanislavsky. A result of this analysis was the book, The Method of K. s. StanisZavsky and the PhysioZogy of Emotions, written in 1955-1956 and published by the Academy of Sciences of the USSR in 1962. I am grateful to the first reader and critic of the manuscript, Leon Abgarovich Orbeli. In 1960, having transferred to the Institute of Higher Nervous Activ ity and Neurophysiology of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, I had the opportunity to conduct experiments on prob lems that had interested me for a long time. In close scien tific association with Peter Mikhailovich Ershov, director and teacher of theater, I began a systematic study of the in voluntary and electrophysiological shifts in actors during voluntary production of various emotional states. Here comparatively quickly we became convinced that the fruitfulness of such studies rests on an absence of any kind of developed, systematic, and sound generaZ theory of the emotions of man and the higher mammals. We will illustrate our difficulties if only with one example. We had frequently read of the so-called "emotional memory.
