Though my grief is laid bare, it's more than a recounting of grief; it's also a story of hope, and faith, of my safe passage through grief because of my spiritual growth. Passages of grieving from my journal"' are intertwined with pas— ... -- Everyone at one time or another in their life, faces loss—either the loss of a job, a pet, a home, the death of a loved one, either a spouse, a parent, a friend, or the worse loss of all, a child. Loss entails grief, and most of us don’t do the “grief work” adequately. We resume our lives, but we don't usually function at the high level before the grief. Without adequate grief work, we never regain that level of living. It is important to let yourself experience the pain of the loss. Without that, we never get over the loss. Grief Passages is the poignant story of a mother whose 32-year-old daughter has died after an 18-year battle with renal failure. The mother traces the days after the death of her daughter through passages from her journal. Along the way her grief gave way to an exploration of her faith, her belief in God. Grief Passages is more than an account of the author’s grieving for her daughter; it becomes a triumphant declaration of faith in God and the realization that death is not the end, but perhaps the beginning, after all. Passages from the author’s journal give readers of this small book a look into her heart as she struggles with her loss amidst a world that isn’t kind to mourners. Readers who are themselves in mourning will find comfort. As one reader said, “You described the way I feel, but didn’t know how to say it.” The author is a professional, with a master’s degree in counseling.

Infrapolitical Passages
Language: en
Pages: 288
Authors: Gareth Williams
Categories: Literary Criticism
Type: BOOK - Published: 2020-12-01 - Publisher: Fordham University Press

This book makes a case for infrapolitics as an enactment of intellectual responsibility in the face of a tumultuous world of war and of technological value extraction on a planetary scale. Infrapolitical Passages proposes to clear a way through some of the dominant political determinations and violent symptoms of contemporary globalization. In doing so, Gareth Williams makes a case for infrapolitics as an enactment of intellectual responsibility in the face of a tumultuous world of war and of technological value extraction on a planetary scale. The book offers a theory of globalization as a gigantic, directionless crisis in humanity’s symbolic organization, as well as a theory of global economic warfare as the very positing of directionlessness and, at the same time, facticity. Williams’s infrapolitics stands at a distance from the biopolitical, which it understands as domination presenting itself as the production of specific forms of subjectivity in the face of the commodity. The subsequent obscuring of being signals the need to circumvent the instrumentalization of life as subordination to the metaphysics of subjectivity, representation, and politics. Infrapolitical Passages works to confront that which is unavailable in subjectivity and representation, opening a way for facticity in the age of globalization in order to make room for the infrapolitical question for existence.

Understanding and Treating Patients in Clinical Psychoanalysis
Language: en
Pages: 152
Authors: Sandra Buechler
Categories: Psychology
Type: BOOK - Published: 2015-03-05 - Publisher: Routledge

Understanding and Treating Patients in Clinical Psychoanalysis: Lessons from Literature describes the problematic ways people learn to cope with life’s fundamental challenges, such as maintaining self-esteem, bearing loss, and growing old. People tend to deal with the challenges of being human in characteristic, repetitive ways. Descriptions of these patterns in diagnostic terms can be at best dry, and at worst confusing, especially for those starting training in any of the clinical disciplines. To try to appeal to a wider audience, this book illustrates each coping pattern using vivid, compelling fiction whose characters express their dilemmas in easily accessible, evocative language. Sandra Buechler uses these examples to show some of the ways we complicate our lives and, through reimagining different scenarios for these characters, she illustrates how clients can achieve greater emotional health and live their lives more productively. Drawing on the work of Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Munro, Mann, James, O’Connor, Chopin, McCullers, Carver, and the many other authors represented here, Buechler shows how their keen observational short fiction portrays self-hurtful styles of living. She explores how human beings cope using schizoid, paranoid, grandiose, hysteric, obsessive, and other defensive styles. Each is costly, in many senses, and each limits the possibility for happiness and fulfillment. Understanding and Treating Patients in Clinical Psychoanalysis offers insights into what living with and working with problematic behaviors really means through a series of examples of the major personality disorders as portrayed in literature. Through these fictitious examples, clinicians and trainees, and undergraduate and graduate students can gain a greater understanding of how someone becomes paranoid, schizoid, narcissistic, obsessive, or depressive, and how that affects them, and those around them, including the mental health professionals who work with them.

When Tom Crider's only child, Gretchen, died in an apartment fire at age twenty-one, there seemed to be no answers to his questions.

It's a book for good people who've had bad things happen but who can't find consolation in prayer. It's a book for readers--people who would, in sorrow, naturally turn to books for shared experience, reflection, wisdom, comfort in words passed down through the ages. Filled with gleanings from the wisdom and text of many cultures, Tom Crider shares with us the wisdom that helped him find peace and understanding. GIVE SORROW WORDS is a book for any bereaved person facing the loss of a loved one.

When the loss of a loved one is too difficult to talk about, many people have come to grips with their sorrow through writing. Keeping a journal can be a valuable step in the healing process, especially in the dark of night when grief intensifies and sleep eludes you. Especially when there were still things to resolve. Especially if you didn't get to say good-bye.After her husband's death, Barbara Baumgardner turned to journaling to put her thoughts in perspective and express the things she felt she couldn't talk about. In A Passage through Grief, she guides you in the journaling process and shares writings from other grieving people who have let their feelings flow out onto paper rather than holding them inside. A guide for leaders of support groups is also included in this book.
