What does it mean to work inter-culturally? Our multi-cultural society is changing the parameters of counselling. Working Inter-Culturally in Counselling Settings explores how racial issues can be recognised and worked within a practical, clinical setting.

Using folktales and other metaphoric stories can aid the healing process Just as stories have the power to enrich our lives, shape the way we perceive and interact with the world, and reveal the wonders of the human spirit, so too can they play an important and potent role in therapy-helping people develop the skills to cope with and survive a myriad of life situations. 101 Healing Stories celebrates the rewards of using parables, fables, and metaphors in therapy as a nonthreatening means to help clients discuss problems and consider possible solutions. George W. Burns examines the healing value of using metaphors in therapy and provides 101 inspirational story ideas that therapists can adapt to share with clients for effecting change. He explains how to tell stories that engage the client, how to make them metaphoric, and where to find sources for such tales. Burns also shows readers how to build stories from personal experiences or their own imagination to use in session, making this thoughtful book an especially creative therapeutic tool. Contains 101 stories grouped by desired therapeutic outcome, highlighting each story's applicability to a variety of presenting problems Offers talking points for therapists such as speci?c insights, outcomes, or skills that are illustrated by the stories Features shaded tabs that index stories by therapeutic outcome for easy reference and selection

The power of running to alleviate our suffering and frailties Whether you’re a novice runner making your way from the couch to your first 5K race, or an elite runner toeing the line at the start of the Olympic marathon, you soon discover that within the beauty of movement, there comes a point where you arrive at a mysterious boundary—the border where one valiantly tries to quiet the mind, while allaying incapacitating doubts and fears. This subtle negotiation, this dance with discomfort, is the birthplace of an inner fortitude, and it demands we keep moving when everything inside us is screaming for us to quit. Jean-Paul Bédard explores running’s ability to nurture inner resilience and build community, and how it can help us work through the traumas of addiction, depression, abuse, or anxiety. This book is a message strength and hope.

Project Sanctuary is a training manual to allow the user to begin understanding and using Quantum Logic, and to repair the conscious/unconscious divide.For most if not all endeavours at the far edge of human knowledge, an innate understanding of Quantum Logic is essential. This is systemic, organic thinking which may involve computations of n-complexity - and this cannot be achieved with ordinary thinking "the hard way". Human beings are structurally designed to think in Quantum Logic but have been entrained to a much slower, harder and highly limited logic of four dimensional symbols and language, thus causing a break between what we now call the conscious and the unconscious mind. For anyone involved in learning about people, psychology, healing, mathematics, art, creativity, physics etc. it is of the essence to firstly bridge the gap and allow insights derived from the Quantum Logic processes of the "unconscious mind" to be made available to the conscious mind once more; and secondly, to re-train the conscious mind to be able to compute in Quantum logic also, thereby "reuniting dream and real". This leads even at the beginning stages to a powerful increase in intuition, ESP, creativity and effectiveness in learning and understanding the complex systems of relationships, of people and of their ecology. Project Sanctuary achieves this reunification process by a simple and joyful communication within one person's mind in a stepped off reality dimension which gave the training process and the book its name. Project Sanctuary, the third edition, contains both the original training process as well as a reaching addendum of practical and powerful patterns which were derived directly by using the Project Sanctuary process itself in order to generate these.
