Body and Mature Behavior: A Study of Anxiety, Sex, Gravitation, and Learning


By (author): Moshe Feldenkrais

A victim of debilitating injuries, Moshe Feldenkrais was intimately aware of the link between bodily suffering and mental health. Through healing himself, he made revolutionary discoveries, culminating in the development of the method that now bears his name. In an intellectually rich and eloquent style, Feldenkrais delves into neurology, prehistory, child development, gravity and anti-gravity, reflexive versus learned behavior, the effects of emotion, especially anxiety, on posture, and most importantly, the inseparability of body and mind.

Praise for Healing with Stories

“George Burns has done an expert job of compiling a definitive work that demystifies the ever-versatile metaphor. Whether you are a novice or an expert clinician, you will find a treasury of story interventions along with the ‘inside scoop’ on how each was created and applied to bring success in nineteen unforgettable case chapters. Better yet, you’ll be able to create your own healing metaphors thanks to the expert guidance of a wide range of talented storytellers. Don’t miss out on this one!”
–Maggie Phillips, PhD, author of Finding the Energy to Heal and coauthor of Healing the Divided Self

“If you want to be inspired, entertained, and enlightened, Healing with Stories is the book to read. George Burns, a master storyteller, has assembled a creative, diverse group of clinicians to share their ideas about how metaphor can be used with a variety of problems and clients. The result is a fascinating array of insights into metaphor’s role in the healing process.”
–Richard G. Whiteside, MSW, author of Becoming Dragon

New Treatments for Addiction: Behavioral, Ethical, Legal, and Social Questions


By (author): National Research Council, Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education, Institute of Medicine, Board on Neuroscience and Behavioral Health, Board on Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, Cognitive, and Sensory Sciences Board on Behavioral, Committee on Immunotherapies and Sustained-Release Formulations for Treating Drug Addiction

New and improved therapies to treat and protect against drug dependence and abuse are urgently needed. In the United States alone about 50 million people regularly smoke tobacco and another 5 million are addicted to other drugs. In a given year, millions of these individuals attempt—with or without medical assistance—to quit using drugs, though relapse remains the norm. Furthermore, each year several million teenagers start smoking and nearly as many take illicit drugs for the first time. Research is advancing on promising new means of treating drug addiction using immunotherapies and sustained-release (depot) medications. The aim of this research is to develop medications that can block or significantly attenuate the psychoactive effects of such drugs as cocaine, nicotine, heroin, phencyclidine, and methamphetamine for weeks or months at a time. This represents a fundamentally new therapeutic approach that shows promise for treating drug addiction problems that were difficult to treat in the past. Despite their potential benefits, however, several characteristics of these new methods pose distinct behavioral, ethical, legal, and social challenges that require careful scrutiny. Such issues can be considered unique aspects of safety and efficacy that are fundamentally related to the distinct nature and properties of these new types of medications.
