Summary: This dazzling book takes us on a voyage of discovery around the world at the turn of the last millennium, when for the first time the world was in essence a unity. Islam bridged Eurasia, western Europe, and North Africa. Vikings, with links to Scandinavia and Russia, had just arrived in North America. These and other peoples reached out to create links and put isolated cultures unwittingly in touch. John Man vividly captures these epochal events, and depicts the colorful peoples that defined the world's mix of stability and change, of isolation and contact. In an immensely learned portrayal, he traces enduring cultural strands that became part of the world as we know it today.In text, maps, and pictures, virtually all in color, and drawing on the expertise of some two dozen consultants, Man has created a concise compendium of all the major cultures of the lost millennial world of 1000. In some cultures -- Europe, Islam, China, and Japan -- written records contain a vast range of materials, often revealing sharply focused details of life and personality. Here lie startling contrasts with today's world, and even foreshadowings of the. Codice inventario libreria
Riassunto: Drawing on his rich experience within psychiatry, Leston Havens takes the reader on an extraordinary journey through the vast and changing landscape of psychotherapy and psychiatry today. Closely examining the dynamics of the doctor-patient exchange, he seeks to locate and describe the elusive therapeutic environment within which psychological healing most effectively takes place.
From the Back Cover: In a world that seems increasingly complex, even hostile, many of us yearn for a place where we can be totally accepted, where grievances great and small can be aired, old hurts and secret foibles disclosed to another trusting human being. To find such a place, and such a person, could give us the safety and freedom we need to be who we really are. In this beautifully written, meticulously thoughtful book, psychiatrist Leston Havens declares that a safe place does exist--indeed must exist--in the therapist's office as the process of healing takes place. With great empathy for his patients, Dr. Havens takes readers into the mind of the therapist as he does his careful work: the kind of thinking he must do during sessions, how he must sometimes hold back for the patient's good, deal with his own feelings appropriately, or provoke in order to enlighten. As he narrates his experience with a variety of patients--a highly emotional college student, a physician preoccupied by death, a schizophrenic seminary student, and others--Dr. Havens describes the challenge of creating a safe place for people who are wary, forlorn, and sick at heart. And in his capable hands, the idea of a safe place is explored in ways that can be translated to life outside the treatment session. In doing so, he teaches all of us the quality of mind required to establish a safe place for ourselves, and for others.
