Counseling and Psychotherapy - Siang-Yang Tan
Call Number: BR115.C69 T36 2011
ISBN: 9780801029660
Publication Date: 2011
This text combines cutting-edge expertise with deeply rooted Christian insights to offer a comprehensive survey of ten major counseling and psychotherapy approaches. For each approach, Siang-Yang Tan provides a substantial introduction, assessing the approach's effectiveness and the latest research findings or empirical evidence for it. He then critiques the approach from a Christian perspective. Tan also includes hypothetical transcripts of interventions for each major approach to help readers better understand the clinical work involved. The book also presents a Christian approach to counseling and psychotherapy that is Christ centered, biblically based, and Spirit filled. It will work well for marriage and family, social work, ministry, counseling, and psychology courses. Christian counselors and psychotherapists, pastors, chaplains, and lay counselors will also benefit from Tan's expertise -- Publisher description.

Psychopathology of Everyday Life - Freud, Sigmund
Call Number: eBook & print (BF173 .F82 1917)
Publication Date: 1914
Freud developed his system of psychoanalysis while studying the so-called borderline cases of mental diseases, such as hysteria and compulsion neurosis. By discarding the old methods of treatment and strictly applying himself to a study of the patient's life he discovered that the hitherto puzzling symptoms had a definite meaning, and that there was nothing arbitrary in any morbid manifestation. Psychoanalysis always showed that they referred to some definite problem or conflict of the person concerned. It was while tracing back the abnormal to the normal state that Freud found how faint the line of demarcation was between the normal and neurotic person, and that the psychopathologic mechanisms so glaringly observed in the psychoneuroses and psychoses could usually be demonstrated in a lesser degree in normal persons. This led to a study of the faulty actions of everyday life and later to the publication of the current text, a book which passed through four editions in Germany and is considered the author's most popular work. With great ingenuity and penetration the author throws much light on the complex problems of human behaviour, and clearly demonstrates that the hitherto considered impassable gap between normal and abnormal mental states is more apparent than real.
