Sexuality and Sex Therapy

A Comprehensive Christian Appraisal

Author: Mark A. Yarhouse,Erica S. N. Tan

Publisher: InterVarsity Press

ISBN: 0830864830

Category: Religion

Page: 365

View: 4674

The field of human sexuality is one of ever-increasing complexity, particularly for Christian therapists and psychologists seeking to be faithful to Scripture, informed by science and sensitive to culture. In Sexuality and Sex Therapy, Mark Yarhouse and Erica Tan offer a survey and appraisal of this field from a Christian perspective, which grounds sex therapy in the biblical affirmation of physicality and the redemptive purposes of human life. Integrating the latest research within a Christian worldview, the authors explore sexual dysfunctions as well as various clinical issues and treatments. Not only have Yarhouse and Tan written a standard resource for Christian therapists and counselors, but they also challenge the church to talk more honestly and openly about the blessing of human sexuality.

Die Bücherdiebin

Selbst der Tod hat ein Herz ... Molching bei München. Hans und Rosa Hubermann nehmen die kleine Liesel Meminger bei sich auf – für eine bescheidene Beihilfe, die ihnen die ersten Kriegsjahre kaum erträglicher macht. Für Liesel jedoch bricht eine Zeit voller Hoffnung, voll schieren Glücks an – in dem Augenblick, als sie zu stehlen beginnt. Anfangs ist es nur ein Buch, das im Schnee liegen geblieben ist. Dann eines, das sie aus dem Feuer rettet. Dann Äpfel, Kartoffeln und Zwiebeln. Das Herz von Rudi. Die Herzen von Hans und Rosa Hubermann. Das Herz von Max. Und das des Todes. Denn selbst der Tod hat ein Herz. „Die Bücherdiebin“ ist eine Liebesgeschichte, eine Hommage an Bücher und Worte und eine Erinnerung an die Macht der Sprache, die im Roman von Markus Zusak viele Facetten zeigt: den lakonisch-distanzierten Ton des Erzählers, Poesie und Zuversicht – und die reduzierte Sprache der Nazipropaganda.

People -- frustrating, confusing, disappointing, complicated -- are the most difficult part of leadership, and they challenge leaders everywhere, from leaders of many to managers of a few. In this book Chuck DeGroat addresses the flawed nature of people and offers wisdom for leaders of all types in dealing with just about anyone who is difficult to lead and to love. Toughest People to Love explores the basics of how people "tick," encouraging leaders to examine and take care of themselves so that they can better understand and care for others. Based on DeGroat's wealth of experience as a pastor, professor, and therapist, this book -- both wise and practical -- is one that countless leaders will go back to time and again for valuable insights and renewed vision.

Ancient Sins . . . Modern Addictions

A Fresh Look at the Seven Deadly Sins

Author: R. Scott Sullender

Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers

ISBN: 1620326906

Category: Religion

Page: 198

View: 2290

There is a virtual epidemic of addiction in the United States, both traditional addictions to drugs and alcohol but also newer addictions, like sex, gambling, rage, work, and food/eating. Some authorities have labeled addictions the number one mental health problem in America. We are spending millions of dollars annually trying to prevent, understand, and treat this epidemic--and yet by any measure of success we are losing this "war." In this cultural context Dr. Sullender invites us to look again at the spiritually based scheme of the Seven Deadly Sins, which originated at the dawn of Western civilization. He suggests that what our spiritual forebears meant by "deadly" is best captured in the modern concept of "addiction." Based on this thesis, this book explores what is addictive about the sins of pride, envy, anger, greed, gluttony, sloth, and lust, and suggests that these sins are all obsessive, and as such become the mental component in the addictive cycle. Each chapter concludes by offering some spiritual resources, practices, and insights that can help us win the battle against addiction, which is ultimately won or lost on a mental or spiritual plane.

Detroit – Symbol für den Tod des American Dream. Zwischen Industrieruinen und Kunstprojekten geschieht Grässliches. Menschen werden ermordet und zu «Kunstwerken» arrangiert: ein Junge mit menschlichem Oberkörper und den Beinen eines Rehs. Eine Keramikkünstlerin als grausige Tonskulptur. Detective Gabriella Versado hat schon vieles gesehen, doch so etwas noch nie. Sie ahnt nicht, dass sie es mit einem Monster zu tun hat – mit jemandem, der von dem brutalen Traum besessen ist, die Welt nach seiner Vision neu zu erschaffen. Und der vor nichts zurückschreckt, um diesen Traum wahr werden zu lassen. «Niemals weniger als absolut fesselnd.» (Val McDermid) «Furchterregend und hypnotisch. Ich konnte es nicht aus der Hand legen – an Ihrer Stelle würde ich es mir sofort besorgen und lesen!» (Stephen King) «Im Ernst: Was für eine brillante Krimi-Phantasmagorie!!!! Dieser umwerfende Roman ist das neue Standardwerk zum urbanen Verfall. Jetzt lesen!» (James Ellroy) «Im allerbesten Sinne verstörend ... Eine Serienkillergeschichte, wie es sie noch nie gegeben hat.» (Kirkus Review) «Ein durchtrieben fieser Thriller, der wie wenige andere den Leser zum Nachdenken bringt.» (Telegraph) «Ein überragender Roman, voll lebendiger Figuren und fesselnder Dialoge.» (Times UK) «Nie voyeuristisch, nie oberflächlich, nie unkompliziert: Beukes zeigt, dass Horror der einzig mögliche Weg sein kann, unsere Realität begreifbar zu machen.» (The Guardian) «Ein ungewöhnlicher und packender Thriller.» (Sunday Express) «Ein grauenerregender Spannungsroman, der die Opfer in den Mittelpunkt stellt.» (Marie Claire) «Wie ein Ermittlerkrimi auf Halluzinogenen – brutal und hoch unterhaltsam.» (Evening Standard) «Beukes ist eine unwiderstehliche Erzählerin, die starke Figuren erschafft.» (Metro)

Use a Behavioral Medicine Approach to Improve Clinical Outcome "All primary care physicians, their residents, and students would benefit from the central message of this book: medical practice occurs in the context of the physician-patient relationship, and only by understanding, managing, and using that relationship in an ethical, supportive, and effective fashion can primary care practice be conducted appropriately. -- Journal of General Internal Medicine * "Cohesively edited...bolstered by clinical vignettes...well positioned as an introduction for the physician-teacher and physician-in-training to the demands of the expanding role of physician as therapist....[Other texts] are not directed at the physician-in-training, are not case based, and are not as useful as a quick reference." -- Annals of Internal Medicine * "An excellent resource...Our family practice residency program has recently adopted this text as the primary resource for our behavioral science curriculum and provides each resident with a copy. It would be similarly useful for internists, nurse practitioners, and other primary care practitioners in training...Primary care health psychologists, medical school faculty, and others needing a compact and useful reference in this area will find this book highly valuable." -- Annals of Behavioral Science & Medical Education * "Doctors Feldman and Christensen have done primary care practice a good and important service with the publication of their book. It remains for clinicians and teachers to open their minds and practices to the ideas within it." -- From the Foreword, by Steven A. Schroeder, MD * Of the first edition.

5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW! "This is an extraordinarily thorough, useful book. It manages to summarize numerous topics, many of which are not a part of a traditional medical curriculum, in concise, relevant chapters. Physicians who do not understand the dynamics behind the doctor-patient relationship usually end up being poor doctors, and this book reviews the many behavioral issues that patients have that can affect this relationship. This is a very welcome addition to the medical education literature, and should be required reading for all practicing clinicians."--Doody's Review Service Behavioral Medicine delivers practical coverage of behavioral and interactional issues that occur between provider and patient in everyday clinical practice. You will learn how to deliver bad news, how to conduct an effective patient interview, how to clinically manage behavioral issues in the dying patient, the principles of medical professionalism, behavioral issues in men's and women's health, and much more. Features: Thorough but practical discussion of the scope of the physician-patient relationship Includes extensive use of cases and clinical vignettes Complete coverage of medical disorders that influence both physician and patient behavior in clinical practice

Sex and Sexuality

Questions and Answers for Counsellors and Psychotherapists

Author: Glyn Hudson-Allez

Publisher: Wiley

ISBN: 9781861564955

Category: Psychology

Page: 152

View: 3795

This book bridges the gap between the counsellor and the specialist sex therapist, by providing answers to questions raised by patients or clients about sex, gender and sexuality. It covers physiological information about genitalia, variations on sexuality, the differences between men and women in genital sexual arousal and sexual dysfunctions, an understanding of developmental sexuality and information as to whether the sex discussed is normal or pathological. By having a clearer understanding of usual sexual practices, counsellors can be readily equipped to reassure their clients, or refer to an appropriate person for specialist referral. Topics covered include physiological difficulties like erectile problems, ejaculatory difficulties, vaginismus and dyspareunia, and loss of sexual desire; gender problems including cross-dressing, transsexualism and intersex; and psychological problems include sexual addiction, fetishism and unusual sexual practices. These are discussed in the context of individual clients and in couple dynamics, and provide a comprehensive reference for the non-specialist mental health professional.
