Description : A Scathing, Thrill-filled Offering JM Ferranto's new mystery thriller spews out a scathing social commentary on modern society. As a college student ten years ago, JM Ferranto laid the groundwork of a grand, deeply personal project; a multi-dimensional, thrill-filled mystery novel that would also serve as a scathing social commentary on modern society Dissident, is a mystery thriller that deeply explores some of human society's most pressing issues: the abortion debates, the theory of "Nature vs. Nurture", and of life's most critical choices; the ones that send ripples of impact throughout a person's existence. Set in the fictional eastern Pennsylvanian town of Revolution, Ferranto's masterfully-written work follows the trail of Isabella Esposito, and her long, strange journey of self-discovery. After a three-year search for her biological parents, Isabella finds herself facing the barrel of a 9MM handgun and then passes out from a blow to the head. In her unconscious state, every decision that led her to this point plays out in her mind and unravels a riveting, thought-provoking story. A powerful tale of family, right and wrong, and the choices we make in life, Ferranto's novel is a thought-provoking mystery thriller that tackles a myriad of pressing social issues and bitingly asks: If a child is unwanted at conception, can it ever truly be wanted?

Description : Dealing with the therapeutic impasse is one of the most challenging tasks faced by therapists. The Integrity Model of Existential Psychotherapy in Working with the 'Difficult Patient' describes how the Integrity model of psychotherapy provides an original solution to dealing with difficult issues such as resistance, acting out, counter-transference, guilt, value clashes and cultural diversity. The Integrity model is based on an existential approach to living and views psychological difficulties as stemming from a lack of fidelity to one's values. In this book, the authors explore how this approach to psychotherapy can enhance other therapeutic models or stand on its own to offer a valuable alternative perspective on the causes of mental illness. Case material is provided to illustrate the value of the Integrity model in relation to a range of clinical issues, including: Borderline Personality Disorders Antisocial Personality Post-Traumatic Stress Schizophrenia Workplace Stress Addictions. This book provides a provocative and insightful presentation of the subject of impasses, as well as dealing with associated issues including the role of values in psychotherapy, community, spirituality, and therapist responsibility. It will be of great interest to counsellors and psychotherapists.
