Catholic Press Association Award Winner! The Gospel call to do justice has inspired Christians to practice justice throughout the centuries. Yet popular usage associates justice with the legal system, due process, or with fair treatment in ways that are not helpful to Christian practitioners and ministers of justice. When Love Is Not Enoughaddresses the practice of justice at the dawn of the new millennium through the lens of eight dilemmas that confront Christians in their daily efforts to do justice. After an initial description and analysis of these eight specific dilemmas that impact the Christian understanding and practice of justice, When Love Is Not Enough draws on the experience of practitioners of justice; the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures; Catholic Social Teachings; and contemporary theories of justice to develop a comprehensive approach to justice based on faith. Chapter one introduces the dilemmas in contemporary justice that reflect a theological, eschatological, sacramental, and ethical worldview. Chapter two traces the theological framework of justice through the experience of ministers and practitioners of justice. Chapter three looks at the theological framework of justice in the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures, while chapter four examines the theological framework of justice in Catholic Social Teachings. Chapter five draws upon contemporary and classical theories of justice, showing justice as a historically evolving practice. Chapter six examines the anthropological, theological, and sacramental contexts for justice as participation in the human community. Chapter seven outlines how justice as participation in the human community is built around seven important points. The final chapter illustrates how justice as participation can sort out some just practices that respond to the eight initial dilemmas. Chapters are Contemporary Dilemmas of Justice," *Justice and its Theological Framework in the Experience of Ministers and Practitioners of Justice, - *Justice and its Theological Framework in the Hebrew and in the Christian Scriptures, - *Justice and its Theological Framework in Catholic Social Teachings, - *Contemporary, Classic Theories of Justice, - *The Contexts of Justice as Participation in the Human Community, - *Justice as Participation in the Human Community, - and *The Practice of Justice as Participation in the Human Community. - Mary Elsbernd, OSF, STD, is associate professor of pastoral studies in social ethics at Loyola University, Chicago.

Lawrence Chelton loved hard, but at the same time it was all soft, deep, and lasting, filled with a belief that soul mates really do exist. He would do anything for the woman he loved. He was tender, caring, strong, and protective. He knew how to stand and be the man a good woman would truly want—or so he believed. When the woman he loved left him at the altar, he changed. He lost his belief in love. He lost his respect for women. He lost his ability to be decent, to be a good man. He no longer believed love was enough. He didn’t know what was enough, what was life-fulfilling. However, after the altar, he felt it was only right to take advantage of as many women as possible in a depraved attempt to find the truth. To him, they deserved nothing but his contempt.

The Management of Covert Dynamics in Organizations That Treat Children and Adolescents

Author: Donna Piazza, PHD

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1317764242

Category: Psychology

Page: 122

View: 2455

When Love Is Not Enough relates how a multitude of factors--the competence of staff; the safety, nurturing, and protective elements of the emotional, physical, and political setting; and all overt and covert organizational dynamics--determine whether or not a treatment setting accomplishes its therapeutic aims. Authors in When Love Is Not Enough continue the emphasis on the group-as-a-whole “Group Relation” model of organizational and group processes begun with Wilfred Bion’s work at the Tavistok Clinic in London in the 1940s. This model helps those providing services to children and adolescents evaluate their treatment programs and make the necessary changes toward improvement. Chapters in When Love Is Not Enough are dedicated to improving the psychological treatment of children and adolescents in postmodern society, a society in which life in interdependent communities is becoming increasingly important for the health and survival of all persons. Topics covered include: the Tavistok approach to understanding group and organizational behavior the emphasis on group-as-a-whole in problem solving and treatment design narrowing the gap between plan and outcome the dynamics involved in the psychiatric treatment of children issues of staff selection, training, and development in programs designed to treat children countertransference responses in the treatment of children and adolescents revitalizing organizations the subjective experience of school life When Love Is Not Enough helps organizations realize the ways in which they may, inadvertently, undermine the emotional and cognitive functioning of the staff or the identified patients and set serious limits on the growth of members of the organization, staff and patients alike. It urges organizations to conduct an ongoing self-scrutiny concerning their rational and irrational processes, as this self-examination is crucial to the health and vitality of the treatment offered to others. The book also promotes thinking of the conscious and unconscious dynamics of the group-as-a-whole to more completely inform organizational decisions concerning changes that may enhance the treatment of children and adolescents. When Love Is Not Enough serves as an invaluable guide for mental health professionals who treat children and adolescents, group therapists, hospital and clinic administrators, psychoanalysts, nurses, social workers, psychologists, and psychiatrists.

This book was written as a guide to co-parenting. In this book there are 12 easy to read short stories that can serve as a mirror to help parents who are struggling with co-parenting observe their behavior. Our kids see the dislike, anger, resentment, bitterness and even sometimes hatred their parents have for each other. Its makes them sad and often they blame themselves for their parents inability to get along. The struggling co-parents sometimes can't see their behaviors. The purpose of a mirror is to allow us to see things we cannot see, evaluate them and if necessary correct them. My desire in this book is to provide "mirrors" that will allow parents to see some of their behaviors, evaluate them and if necessary correct them.

Bringing Spirituality and Coping Back to Families and Homes

America is losing touch with her young African American male population. Parents are losing touch with sons, and sisters are losing touch with brothers. Why is this? Why are adolescent black males becoming lost to their own self-destructive behaviors? Most parents aren’t going to like to hear it, but it’s due to a lack of spirituality in upbringing. If a young man does not build his foundation on spirituality, he is left to build it on society. Dr. Thomas Page has spent much of his career studying and counseling the African American males of America. He has seen the devastation caused by a life without spirituality, and it is partially the fault of the parents. Parents force their children to get up and go to school every morning, and yet on Sunday they allow the children to choose whether they will go to be spiritually fed. This choice could lead to the children’s downfall. When Love Is Not Enough calls for a return to the notion of spirituality as the center of the household. By identifying with spirituality, young men can avoid identifying with drugs, alcohol, and illegal activities. Children must be spiritually fed in order to become spiritually satiated adults. It’s not too late. Turn back to the strong foundation of spirituality; your children will thank you for it.
