The Sense of Movement An Intellectual History by Roger SmithSale
Ready to buy.
A rich engaging wide ranging history of a much ignored sense, Roger Smith’s The Sense of Movement: An Intellectual History utilises philosophy and the history of science to explore the under-acknowledged “sixth sense”; the sense of movement. Smith reflects on the way various types of movement have interacted with physiology, psychology and the social sciences to create an idea of what this “sixth sense” really encompasses. He then expands his ideas to how personal awareness of this sense can affect lived experience.
Closing the Asylum: The Mental Patient in Modern Society By Peter Barham
Process Press is very pleased to announce a new edition of this classic book. Peter Barham has written a new 10,000 word prologue and Peter Campbell a new preface.
In this acclaimed book, first published almost thirty years ago, Peter Barham examines the changing fortunes of mental patients in the era of the asylum and after. He demonstrates powerfully that the closure of mental hospitals cannot meet the real needs of people with severe mental health problems without a profound rethinking of the role, rights and status of the former mental patient in society.
Countertransference and Alive Moments Help or Hindrance R.D. Hinshelwood
This book deals with the nitty-gritty of understanding why countertransference remains an on-going challenge for psychotherapists and psychoanalysts. Over the years the emphasis has moved from theoretical disapproval to potential clinical advantage. This advantage is in practice often hard to achieve, sometimes due to the fear of the closeness in the psychoanalyst as much as in the patient. This thorough and thoughtful book will help students and more seasoned practitioners understand the way differing trends in understanding countertransference connect, relate and sometimes contradict. It aims to provide practical insight into the way countertransference experiences can be grasped, worked through and then worked with to powerful and good effect in the clinical work.
