Grounded in 40 years of clinical practice and research, this book provides a systematic yet flexible evidence-informed framework for treating adult survivors of complex trauma, particularly those exposed to chronic emotional abuse or neglect. Component-based psychotherapy (CBP) addresses four primary treatment components that can be tailored to each client's unique needs--relationship, regulation, dissociative parts, and narrative. Vivid extended case examples illustrate CBP intervention strategies and bring to life both the client's and therapist's internal experiences. The appendix features a reproducible multipage clinician self-assessment tool that can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.

Christianity and Psychiatry Book Excerpt:

This book aims to help readers appreciate the many-faceted relationship between Christianity, one of the world’s major faith traditions, and the practice of psychiatry. Chapter authors in this book first consider challenges posed by historical antagonisms, church-based mental health stigma, and controversy over phenomena such as hearing voices. Next, others explore both how Christians often experience conditions such as mood and psychotic disorders, disorders in children and adolescents, moral injury and PTSD, and ways that their faith can serve as a resource in their healing. Twelve Step spirituality, originally informed by Christianity, is the subject of a chapter, as are issues raised for Christians by disability, death and dying. A set of chapters then focuses on the state of integration of Christian beliefs and practices into psychotherapy, treatment delivery, educational programming, clergy/clinician collaboration, and treatment by a non-Christian psychiatrist. Finally, there are chapters by a mental health professional who has been a patient, a Jewish psychiatrist, a Muslim psychiatrist knowledgeable about Christianity and psychiatry in the Muslim majority world, and a Christian psychiatrist. These chapters provide context, diversity and personal perspectives. Christianity and Psychiatry is a valuable resource for mental health professionals seeking to understand and address the particular challenges that arise when caring for Christian patients.

"In his annual lecture to second year medical students, Dr. Fred Berlin describes an interview he had, early in his career, with a man whom he was evaluating following the man's arrest for child sexual abuse. Halfway through the interview, the arrested man interrupted Dr. Berlin's questions and said, You know, Doctor, your society takes a newborn baby boy; gathers family and friends, takes a knife and without any anesthesia cuts skin off the tip of his penis. This is accepted as a religious act. I bend over and kiss that same penis, and I am arrested as a child sexual abuser. Can you explain that to me? (Berlin, 2000)"--

Lord I m Depressed Book Excerpt:

“Cheer up!” “Just pray it away!” “Christians don’t get depressed!” All too often, we hear these insensitive words from people who mean well but are misguided on depression. A way to help is striving to better understand depression and those dealing with it. In Lord, I'm Depressed, Rico Villanueva shares his own journey with depression and his reflections on the Lament Psalms. He writes, "It is through pain, indeed, through the wounds of Jesus, that healing flows." This book is not about quick fixes, formulas, or false hopes for overcoming depression. It is a profound psychological, biblical, and vulnerable expression of a pastor, scholar, and deeply faithful man of God whose story is, unfortunately, not an exception.

Athena to Barbie Book Excerpt:

Athena to Barbie explores the vexed nature of being a woman. It maps the four corners of impossible choice a female faces because of the female body--her body as spiritual space (Mary), as political space (Athena), as erotic space (Venus), and as materialist space (Barbie). The book tracks the difficulty women face in understanding themselves as someone who has, but is not only, a body. The question of identity is particularly fraught and complicated when it comes to women--because the ability to bear children is a double-edged sword. Across time (including right now), having a womb has shaped how women are viewed and treated in negative ways, and women's childbearing abilities have been used to stereotype, oppress, and constrain them. Pregnancy is powerful, but the possibility of pregnancy comes with impossible pressures and choices. This book takes on the task of reconciliation--how women can understand themselves in light of their bodies--through an intense dive into history, art, literature, theology, and, particularly, philosophy.

Covenant Healing Book Excerpt:

A call to action: God calls us to unite, but the enemy's tactic is continuous strife. Whose mold are you looking to fit into? If all Christians believe that we are made in God's image, why do we ostracize, shame, persecute, and otherwise hurt our fellow brothers and sisters? Are we not called to do His will? Are we not all God's children? The Apostle Paul tells us in Galatians that, "There is no Jew or Greek, slave or free, male or female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:8). Faithful followers of Jesus Christ are all joined together as one in the body of Christ. Every believer has an interconnection that shares in one Holy Spirit and worships one Lord (see Ephesians 4:3-6). Evil has a way of inserting itself even into our most sacred spaces, seeking to destroy the belief in all that is good and ultimately dividing the Christian church. This can take the form of disparagement between Christians of different denominations and various forms of slander that sadly take place between clergy. Join us as we walk in unison through God's Word, the facts, church history, doctrines, and the belief similarities to call upon the unification of the body of Christ.

The New Christian Counselor Book Excerpt:

Seasoned counselors and professors Ron Hawkins and Tim Clinton offer a comprehensive guide that empowers Christian counselors by clarifying their task: to help people take possession of their souls...through the power of the Spirit; under the authority of the Word; in a supportive community of accountability...that they may be like Christ. The authors address head-on today's enticing new imitations of true peace and tantalizing opportunities for people in pain to anesthetize themselves. But they also highlight the foundation of hope: God loves, he empowers, and he refuses to abandon his passion for connection with his children. Case studies illustrate how to help people take possession of the thinking self, the feeling self, the decision-making self, the physical self, and the relational self. This comprehensive plan for effective intervention is perfect for lay counselors, students, and professionals looking for ways to integrate their faith and practice.

Introduction to Christian Counseling and Counseling Psychology Book Excerpt:

My name is Dr. Pearlie Braswell-Tripp, Ph.D. I do not claim to be an expert in religion, psychology, or counseling, but experience has taught me a lot about all three. 2 Timothy, 2:15 says: “study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.” I was born in 1943 in Rocky Mount, North Carolina into a Christian family. My family was attending the Rock of Ages Holiness Church. My mother, Sister Mary Jones-Braswell played the guitar; my sister, Christine Braswell played the piano and the rest of the family sang. There were seven of us girls. My sisters; Frances, Christine, Doretha, Verna, Margaree and Mary Lee were older. We were known as the Braswell sisters. My father was Lee Braswell, the most handsome man in town. I will never forget the great times we had in Rocky Mount, nor will I forget the great Rock of Ages Holiness Church. Our church was two blocks away from our home. That meant we had no real reason not to go. Many of my other relatives attended Rock of Ages also. My mother’s parents attended and so did her brother and his family. Those were what we now call “The good ole days.” I really loved those days. We traveled around singing the gospel until we left home for New York City in 1961. We were rooted and grounded in religion.
