Help your clients successfully integrate the angel and the rebel
Saints and Rogues: Conflicts and Convergence in Psychotherapy is a unique look at two extremes of human behavior and thought--and how they meet within the psychotherapy experience. In this extensive resource, you will gain a greater understanding of human potential by exploring personalities where the line between conformity and divergence has been blurred. This book will help psychotherapists, pastoral and marriage and family counselors, and medical/nursing service providers guide patients and clients in turning negative actions and decisions into positive ones.
In Saints and Rogues, you will find: an assessment of the life of Harry Stack Sullivan (1892-1949)-- called "rogue therapist" by his peers; today a hero for his influence on psychotherapy practice bullying in school--the creation of a prevention program used at the K-5 level designed to appeal to the empathy of the children who are bullied as well as the perpetrators an examination of historical, sociological, and psychoanalytic research about Italian Americans stereotyped as rogues during the twentieth century and in the media today interviews with individuals self-identified as "third gender" who live as neither men nor women--and their frequent encounters with spirituality and much more Saints and Rogues: Conflicts and Convergence in Psychotherapy reevaluates the ethical ramifications of dual/duel relationships, revealing how a roguish character may be seen as saintly and vice versa. This book emphasizes the importance of seeing and treating one another with the same consideration as we would give ourselves. If knowledge is power, the reader--therapist and layperson alike--will find strength in these pages to face their home, work, or school lives with more confidence and pride.
