The End of Belonging: Untold Stories of Leaving Home and the Psychology of Globalization

The End of Belonging: Untold Stories of Leaving Home and the Psychology of Globalization | focusing_gr | Scoop.it
by Greg A Madison, PhD.

Do we really know what we're doing when we leave our home to live in a foreign culture? Why do some of us keep leaving, travelling from place to place, never settling, never really feeling at home? In today's globalised world it is increasingly expected that many of us will go where the job takes us, but at what cost? This book tells the stories of 'existential migrants', people who left home in order to discover themselves. It also warns us that there may be an unexpected psychological effect from thinking we can just live everywhere.

Alice Miller

Alice Miller | focusing_gr | Scoop.it
Almost ALL of us, with very few exceptions, were beaten in our childhood and were not allowed to defend ourselves. Our parents were not always "malignant"; they hit us because they have been treated the same way in their childhood. They simply believed and made us believe that this was the right way of upbringing. This message stays still stored up in our brains and as the beaten children we once were we are still afraid of punishments should we want to rebel against this absurdity. Therapists are not an exception, like all of us, like all adults who were formerly beaten they live in fear of their parents. For that reason they are unable to realize that ALL their patients have been actually mistreated in childhood. Parents don't need to be malignant to inflicting pain. They just automatically repeat what has been done to them, what they learned in the first years of their lives when their brain had been structured....

From Fragmentation to Integration 2

From Fragmentation to Integration 2 | focusing_gr | Scoop.it
Returning to Professor Levine's Arts Therapy

I wish now to continue my commentary on Stephen K. Levine's wonderful little book Poiesis: The Language of Psychology and the Speech of the Soul (Jessica Kingsley, London, 1997) which I began more than six months ago but left off completing for one reason or another in these pages.  The book is essentially a thoughtful and philosophical treatment of the use of the arts in therapy.  Levine cogently argues that poiesis, which is essentially the creative act itself, is also the very act by which we affirm our identity and humanity.  Being such it has much to say to and do with therapy in its multifarious forms. ...

Suzanne Noel's : RECOVERY FOCUSING MANUAL

Suzanne Noel's : RECOVERY FOCUSING MANUAL | focusing_gr | Scoop.it
This Recovery Focusing manual is a companion workbook to Suzanne Noël's "Loving At the Edge: Recovery Emerging" book. It offers easy-to-follow instructions on how to apply felt sensing (Focusing) to the 12 Steps of Recovery, as well as how to integrate Focusing into our daily Program of Recovery. She offers a practical model for working with groups which begins with a grounding “Helper” felt sense, dips into “the worst” of the feel of a situation or issue, and gently guides us into the Best of Recovery. Recovery Focusing offers us an enlivening practice that easily enables us to connect and relate to ourselves, to others, and to a greater sense of “all that is.” Felt sensing is the ultimate act of self care. Always fresh and new, the insights we gain are invaluable, for they come from our own felt experience of Recovery!

An Anthropologist in Taliban's Afghanistan by Patricia A. Omidian

An Anthropologist in Taliban's Afghanistan by Patricia A. Omidian | focusing_gr | Scoop.it
When Bamboo Bloom is a medical anthropologist's highly personal ethnographic chronicle of time spent as an aid worker and community outreach trainer in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. While managing to avoid notice by the Taliban herself, Patricia Omidian, an outsider but one who speaks a local language, exposes the searing realities of scarce access to education and health care alongside limited resources and personal loss in Kabul, Hazarajat, and Herat. Readers feel every pothole in the road as she traverses the vast, rugged country and share her distress over everyday Afghan struggles for survival. Yet, resiliency endures, both for the writer and for the Afghan people, even in the face of Taliban edicts. Omidian illustrates how Afghans must negotiate between the dictates of their own culture and the intimidation of the Taliban, wondering herself what characteristic or trait they possess to cope with the erosion of honor and freedom.

This rare, experiential narrative provides an insider's view of people and circumstances that reaches beyond ubiquitous news headlines of wars, invasions, coups, and droughts. It reveals the unexpected hazards, elusive joys, difficult decisions, and subtle complexities in a country where peace may come when bamboo bloom.

When Bamboo Bloom includes an account of the introduction of Focusing to an Afghan aid organization. Dr. Omidian is actively engaged in Community Wellness Focusing.
