Description : This collection of essays and reviews represents the most significant and comprehensive writing on Shakespeare's A Comedy of Errors. Miola's edited work also features a comprehensive critical history, coupled with a full bibliography and photographs of major productions of the play from around the world. In the collection, there are five previously unpublished essays. The topics covered in these new essays are women in the play, the play's debt to contemporary theater, its critical and performance histories in Germany and Japan, the metrical variety of the play, and the distinctly modern perspective on the play as containing dark and disturbing elements. To compliment these new essays, the collection features significant scholarship and commentary on The Comedy of Errors that is published in obscure and difficulty accessible journals, newspapers, and other sources. This collection brings together these essays for the first time.

Description : With a new foreword by Raymond DiGiuseppe, PhD, ScD, St. John's University "Albert Ellis has written many books on his favorite topic Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy. Although he writes on that topic very well, he often does not write about generic psychotherapy. REBT is an integrative form of psychotherapy. Following this model, psychotherapists can incorporate many diverse techniques and strategies to change clients' dysfunctional behaviors and emotionsÖ. Much of what Al identifies as good REBT in this book is just good psychotherapy. Because people so universally identify Al with REBT, people may generally overlook his wisdom as a clinician. Having worked with Al for more than thirty years, I have been fortunate enough to learn from him. Much of the knowledge I learned from Al and cherish the most is not necessarily about REBT theory. They concern wise ways of thinking about clinical problems. That is why, out of all Al's books, this is my favorite. This is Al Ellis, the clinician." -- From the Foreword by Raymond DiGiuseppe, PhD, ScD, Director of Professional Education, Albert Ellis Institute; Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology, St. John's University Now available in an affordable paperback, this edition takes a look at the underlying causes of resisting cognitive-emotional-behavioral change and the methods used to overcome them. Written in present-action language, Ellis gives an overview of the basic principles of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy. Ellis charts the changes in the field that have taken place in the 20 years leading up to 2002, when this edition was originally published. The book also integrates recent therapies into REBT, including psychotherapy, solution-focused therapy, and recent findings of experimental psychology.
Description : CLASSIC SELF-HELP FROM A RESPECTED PIONEER OF PSYCHOTHERAPY All of us worry about something, big or small, every day. But much of the emotional misery we feel is an overreaction, and it can be significantly reduced, using the techniques you’ll find in this landmark book. World renowned therapist Dr. Albert Ellis, who created Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), believed that anger, anxiety, and depression are not only unnecessary, they’re unethical, because when we allow ourselves to become emotionally upset, we’re being unfair and unjust to ourselves. Thinking negative thoughts is a choice we can refuse to make. Applying the proven, time-tested principles of REBT is a simple, logical way to find true mental health and happiness. REBT acknowledges the power of emotions, but it also helps us understand which feelings are healthy and which are not. This classic book teaches you how to: *Retrain your brain to focus on the positive aspects of your life and face each obstacle without unnecessary despair *Control your emotional destiny *Refuse to upset yourself about upsetting yourself *Solve practical problems as well as emotional problems *Conquer the tyranny of “shoulds” ...and much more, providing all the tools you need to take back your life—and your happiness. If you can refuse to make yourself miserable, you’re that much closer to making yourself happy—every day.
Description : "Based on a deeply held belief that theory does matter in effective helper-client interactions, this text examines with clarity and wit fourteen theories of counseling and psychotherapy. At the beginning of each chapter, readers "meet" a new client through a case example. The author then presents the theory's basic philosophical assumptions; its beliefs about what motivates human behavior; its central constructs; its picture of how humans develop; its ideas about what constitutes mental health and dysfunction; its perspective on how our relationships with those around us impact our functioning; and its view of how our behavior, thoughts, and emotion impact our functioning. Throughout each chapter, the author immediately illustrates the application of a construct or process by showing how it relates to the client case described at the beginning of the chapter, demonstrating the translation of each theory into practice."--BOOK JACKET.
Description : The Handbook of Constructive Therapies provides a highly practical guide to many innovative therapeutic techniques that have come to be known as constructive therapies.Written by leading theoreticians and clinicians, this extraordinary compAndium represents a variety of contemporary therapeutic schools?including solution-focused, narrative, collaborative language systems, reflecting team, interactional, and neo-Ericksonian?that all share an optimistic view of people as resourceful individuals who, for better or worse, construct their own psychological realities. These approaches emphasize respectful collaboration and focus on the strengths and resources of the client. Constructive therapies look more to where people want to go rather than to where they have been.This ground-breaking book is designed to be a user's guide for both the seasoned professional and beginning practitioner. The Handbook of Constructive Therapies reveals how clinicians can have a fuller appreciation of the powers of language and imagination and shows how to incorporate the qualities of caring, collaboration, and respect for a client's abilities. The twenty-two original chapters and extensive introduction are filled with creative concepts, specific techniques, and illustrative case examples that will help clinicians develop the skills they need to use these results-oriented therapies within their own practice. The authors show how to apply these approaches with a wide range of individuals and families including such difficult clients as violent men, troubled children, couples in conflict, people with eating disorders, victims of abuse, and others with severe and persistent problems. These timely innovations are user friAndly and well-suited to meet the demands for greater efficiency and accountability required in today's health care environment.The Handbook for Constructive Therapies is an invaluable aid for all clinicians who want to integrate their own insights and experiences
