Alessandra Lemma - Winner of the Levy-Goldfarb Award for Child Psychoanalysis! The contemporary relevance of psychoanalysis is being increasingly questioned; Off the Couch challenges this view, demonstrating that psychoanalytic thinking and its applications are both innovative and relevant, in particular to the management and treatment of more disturbed and difficult to engage patient groups. Chapters address: clinical applications in diverse settings across the age range the relevance of psychoanalytic thinking to the practice of CBT, psychosomatics and general psychiatry the contribution of psychoanalytic thinking to mental health policy and the politics of conflict and mediation. This book suggests that psychoanalysis has a vital position within the public health sector and discusses how it can be better utilised in the treatment of a range of mental health problems. It also highlights the role of empirical research in providing a robust evidence base. Off the Couch will be essential reading for those practicing in the field of mental health and will also be useful for anyone involved in the development of mental health and public policies. It will ensure that practitioners and supervisors have a clear insight into how psychoanalysis can be applied in general healthcare.

Men! It's time to get up, get moving, and get healthy for a better future. According to the Center for Disease Control, there are over 150 million men in the U.S., and one third of them are obese, leading a large percentage of them to struggle with chronic lower respiratory diseases, diabetes, and heart disease. Steve Reynolds, the "Anti-Fat Pastor," writes from the perspective of a pastor/coach who has sat where you are likely sitting: on the couch living a sedentary life. "My wake-up call came when my health started to deteriorate to the point where I was slowly killing myself," he writes. He went to the Bible and learned how to have a Bod4God lifestyle, and the result was losing an incredible 120 pounds! In Get Off the Couch, Steve Reynolds outlines an in-your-face call to A.C.T.I.O.N. with simple and practical solutions designed to get you off the couch and back into the game of truly living life: Aware: of the risks of continuing unhealthy lifestyle and of the "playbook"--what the Bible says about health Commit: to getting off the couch and into the "game of life" Transform: the way you think and live to leave a powerful legacy Incorporate: simple basics of eating healthier and exercising Organize: how to put this all together so that it remains doable for a lifetime and how to develop a team for success Navigate: developing a game plan for health that works and making your "dash" count

Psychoanalysing Ambivalence With Freud And Lacan

Taking a deep dive into contemporary Western culture, this book suggests we are all fundamentally ambivalent beings. A great deal has been written about how to love – to be kinder, more empathic, a better person, and so on. But trying to love without dealing with our ambivalence, with our hatred, is often a recipe for failure. Any attempt, therefore, to love our neighbour as ourselves – or even, for that matter, to love ourselves – must recognise that we love where we hate and we hate where we love. Psychoanalysis, beginning with Freud, has claimed that to be in two minds about something or someone is characteristic of human subjectivity. Owens and Swales trace the concept of ambivalence through its various iterations in Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis in order to question how the contemporary subject deals with its ambivalence. They argue that experiences of ambivalence are, in present-day cultural life, increasingly excised or foreclosed, and that this foreclosure has symptomatic effects at the individual as well as social level. Owens and Swales examine ambivalence as it is at work in mourning, in matters of sexuality, and in our enjoyment under neoliberalism and capitalism. Above all, the authors consider how today’s ambivalent subject relates to the racially, religiously, culturally, or sexually different neighbour as a result of the current societal dictate of complete tolerance of the other. In this vein, Owens and Swales argue that ambivalence about one’s own jouissance is at the very roots of xenophobia. Peppered with relevant and stimulating examples from clinical work, film, television, politics, and everyday life, Psychoanalysing Ambivalence breathes new life into an old concept and will appeal to any reader, academic, or clinician with an interest in psychoanalytic ideas.

Salad instead of steak? Working out? Skipping that second beer or glass of wine? Healthy habits are THE WORST. If you’re someone who gets up every morning and can’t wait for your run, considers eating sweet potatoes a splurge, and sets aside thirty minutes before work to meditate—this book isn’t for you. If you’re someone who thinks about getting up to go for a run but goes back to sleep, regrets last night’s dinner of fast food, and can barely get to work on time—let alone meditate—then this book will help you find the motivation you’ve been looking for to live your healthiest life, even when you don’t want to. With this funny, in-your-face guide, you won’t find advice on how to “enjoy” exercise, or tips for making broccoli and kale taste as good as donuts and ice cream. What you will find are solid skills to help you actually do the healthy things you know you should be doing. Using these skills—based in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and neuroscience—you’ll learn to find the motivation you’re really craving to adopt healthy habits, even if they do suck. You’ll also discover how to accept self-criticism, develop self-compassion, and live a more meaningful life. This book not only acknowledges that many healthy habits suck, it uses science to explain why we want the things we want (junk food), crave the things we crave (sugar), and dislike the things we dislike (exercise). At the end, you’ll feel validated in feeling like these things are the absolute worst. But you’ll also find the motivation to do them anyway.

In this exhilarating debut, three women find that sometimes the best way to nourish your dreams is with friendship—and by daring to try something that’s not on the menu. If there's one thing these three friends can agree on, it's that being a high-achieving Asian-American woman can mean a lot of pressure. Whitney Lee works at a law firm, but no one—not even her best friends—knows about her fantasies of making it as a singer. Restaurateur Hercules Huang is poised to be the next big name in the cooking world, but her strained relationship with her unassimilated father mars her accomplishments. Audrey Henley, the adopted daughter of Texas billionaires, is thrilled when her less-than-wealthy boyfriend proposes, but her mother worries that she’s repeating the mistakes she made decades ago. They're the closest of friends—who still need to learn to trust each other. But through dinners, a weekend getaway, and shared set-ups and let-downs, these three realize that sometimes, to live the life of your dreams, all you have to do is let go of the need to be perfect. "Off the Menu is filled with characters who will resonate with anyone who has struggled to balance pleasing others with following a dream. Christine Son’s attention to cultural details will remind readers of Amy Tan, and the satisfying conclusion of the story is the perfect end to a day spent curled up with this delectable novel."—Tasha Alexander, author of And Only to Deceive and A Fatal Waltz
