Affect Regulation Theory: A Clinical Model Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology

#ad
W. W. Norton & Company #ad - Affect regulation theory―the science of how humans regulate their emotions―is at the root of all psychotherapies. W w norton Company. The key themes of hill’s affect-focused approach include: how and why different patterns of affect regulation develop; how regulatory patterns are transmitted from caretakers to the infants; what adaptive and maladaptive regulatory patterns look like neurobiologically, and relationally; how deficits in affect regulation manifest as psychiatric symptoms and personality disorders; and ultimately, psychologically, the means by which regulatory deficits can be repaired.

With clarity and practicality, Hill decodes the massive body of contemporary research on affect regulation, offering a comprehensible and ready-to-implement model for conducting affect regulation therapy. The rich, complex theory of affect regulation boiled down into a clinically useful guide. Specific chapters explore such subjects as self states, patient–therapist attunement, supporting self-development in therapy, personality disorders, classical and modern attachment theory, implicit and explicit therapeutic actions, and pervasive dissociated shame, relational trauma and its manifestations in chronic dissociation, mentalization, and many more.

Affect Regulation Theory: A Clinical Model Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology #ad - The book is organized around the four domains of a clinical model: 1 a theory of bodymind; 2 a theory of optimal development of affect regulation in secure attachment relationships; 3 a theory of pathogenesis, in which disordered affect regulation originates in relational trauma and insecure attachment relationships; and 4 a theory of therapeutic actions targeted to repair the affect regulating systems.

This book translates the intricacies of the theory into a cogent clinical synthesis. Drawing on attachment, implicit processes, and neurobiology, developmental trauma, major theorists from Allan Schore to Daniel Stern have argued how and why regulated affect is key to our optimal functioning.

Who Cares?: Rediscovering Community

#ad
Westview Press #ad - The beautifully written, touching accounts of individual lives swept under the carpet of the social services system make it impossible to read this book without being affected by the stories—such as the boy who was afraid of white, Nancy who moved to an apartment after forty years in a nursing home, and everyday life in a small east coast town whose inhabitants help one another in times of need.

Schwartz does not advocate the overthrow or dismantling of the social services, but instead proposes supplemental responses that will lead to richer, better lives for both the recipient and the caregiving individual and community. Routledge. The practical, easily encouraged methods of building informal models suggested by the author grow out of both his own practice and his informed experiences as director of a state social services agency and are grounded in the basic desires for nurturing, belonging, and a sense of community.

Traumatic Narcissism Relational Perspectives Book Series

#ad
Routledge #ad - He explores the relationship of cult leaders and their followers, and examines how traumatic narcissism has lingered vestigially in some aspects of the psychoanalytic profession. Used book in Good Condition. Routledge. In this volume, daniel shaw presents a way of understanding the traumatic impact of narcissism as it is engendered developmentally, Traumatic Narcissism: Relational Systems of Subjugation, and as it is enacted relationally.

Focusing on the dynamics of narcissism in interpersonal relations, Shaw describes the relational system of what he terms the 'traumatizing narcissist' as a system of subjugation – the objectification of one person in a relationship as the means of enforcing the dominance of the subjectivity of the other.

Traumatic Narcissism Relational Perspectives Book Series #ad - Daniel shaw illustrates the workings of this relational system of subjugation in a variety of contexts: theorizing traumatic narcissism as an intergenerationally transmitted relational/developmental trauma; and exploring the clinician's experience working with the adult children of traumatizing narcissists.

Ships from Vermont. Routledge. Routledge. Although primarily intended for the professional psychoanalyst and psychotherapist, this is also a book that therapy patients and lay readers will find highly readable and illuminating. Bringing together theories of trauma and attachment, and the rich clinical sensibility of the Relational Psychoanalysis tradition, but as the result of the specific trauma of subjugation, Shaw demonstrates how narcissism can best be understood not merely as character, intersubjectivity and complementarity, in which one person is required to become the object for a significant other who demands hegemonic subjectivity.
