Fathom, an experimental memoir, explores the hinterland of the narrator's mind. The narrative of Fathom focuses on a tantalising fragment from the past. `I think I saw a lot of blood' and other odd surfacings from memory are explored through the work of psychoanalysis. Much like a kind of detective work to begin with, the narrative unravels the depths that appear in psychotic breakdown. Identity is evoked through three personas of the self: the puppet, the puppet-master and She-who-knows. Poetic in style, though something of a detective story, the first-person narrative is richly layered - Plath, Shakespeare, Sophocles and pop songs all have their place. Highly concentrated, structured in three parts, non-linear in chronology and highly metaphoric, Fathom appeals to those with a deep interest in mental health and all types of therapy.

Nursing, by its very nature, involves all the processes of life from birth to death. In response to new consumer needs and demands, health care services are moving more and more into the home, into the community and into alternative settings.

Each chapter focuses on a different health aspect and includes key terms, interim summaries and critical thinking questions. 21st Century psychology for nurses is aimed at student nurses and caregivers, as well as educators, and was compiled after intensive market research at all the nursing colleges in South Africa. Andrea van Vuren has a BA(Nursing) from the University of Pretoria and postgraduate diplomas in midwifery, nursing education and community nursing science. After becoming a nursing educator, she specialised in the fields of sociology and psychology.

The New Sexual Landscape and Contemporary Psychoanalysis (Paperback): Danielle Knafo, Rocco LoBosco The New Sexual Landscape and Contemporary Psychoanalysis (Paperback)
Danielle Knafo, Rocco LoBosco
R372 Discovery Miles 3 720 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The sexual landscape has changed dramatically in the past few decades, with the meaning of gender and sexuality now being parsed within the realms of gender fluidity, nonheteronormative sexuality, BDSM, and polyamory. The sea change in sexual attitudes has also made room for the mainstreaming of internet pornography and the use of virtual reality for sexual pleasure - and the tech gurus have not even scratched the surface when it comes to mining the possibilities of alternative realities. This book surveys modern sex culture and suggests ways psychoanalysis can update its theories and practice to meet the novel needs of today's generations; at the same time, paying special attention to technology, which is augmenting and expanding sexual and gender possibilities. The authors consider how sexuality and bonding in this brave new world are best suited to meet our psychoanalytic needs.

Rudi Dallos
R735 R692 Discovery Miles 6 920 Save R43 (6%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This invaluable contribution to working with families, whether as a family therapist, clinician or parent, offers insight into how problems for families and children arise and what can help. Don't Blame the Parents explores the ubiquitous issue of blame and responsibility in families, especially of parents feeling blamed for causing or exacerbating problems. The book examines problems that we all encounter in family relationships, whether with children's behaviour, marital anxiety, or not feeling like we are the effective parent that we intend to be. Blame can restrict our ability as therapists, clinicians and family members to explore family dynamics and responsibility for emerging problems in a constructive and progressive way. It can prevent exploration of family dynamics and of finding workable options for long-term positive change and better understanding the role of the family unit. The book draws on attachment and systemic perspectives on family therapy to support the view that parents generally intend to repeat or correct positive childhood experiences, while exploring why these intentions may become derailed. Seminal and contemporary research as well as clinical cases feature, all with an eye to fostering positive and responsible families. "Rudi Dallos offers us a thoughtful and helpful deconstruction of the crucial ethical and therapeutic differences between blame and responsibility in family life. Drawing on his integration of trauma theory and attachment theory with systemic theory and practice, he explores the vexed questions of causality, context and intergenerational influences in the understanding and alleviation of distress in close relationships." Arlene Vetere, Professor of Family Therapy and Systemic Practice, VID Specialized University, Oslo, Norway

'I have never read a more powerful book about mental health. it has the ability to change the way people think about mental illness.' JOANNA CANNON, author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep

Schizophrenia: whether it's the associations it conjures or the people it brings to mind, it is a word we all have a view on. How we perceive it - and how we treat people living with it - is at the core of how we understand mental health.

But what do we really know? How much time do we spend listening? Do we truly comprehend this complex and often contradictory diagnosis?

In The Heartland Nathan Filer, mental health nurse and award winning writer, takes us on a journey into the psychiatric wards he once worked on. He also invites us to spend time with world-leading experts, and with some extraordinary people who share their own stories - true stories - about living with this strange and misunderstood condition.

The Heartland debunks myths, challenges assumptions and offers fresh insight into what it means to be mad.

And what it means to be human.
