Most of what is published about astrological relationships covers the same ground. We've all read that Libra gets along well with Leo, Aries is bound to clash with Capricorn, Pisces and Scorpio are natural lovers, and so on. It all sounds like a pretty well worn formula, but there's one problem-- people are not that simple, and neither are relationships! Astrology & Relationships takes a much more satisfying path, showing how astrology can help you improve all of your relationships. It addresses the complexities of real relationships by revealing the essential nature, needs, strengths, and challenges of every combination. Then it takes the unique step of offering exercises that will help you manifest the true potential that exists between each of the signs. This book emerged from actual experiences between a practicing professional astrologer and the thousands of people he has worked with. The ideas and exercises included within have been tried, tested, and refined so that they can be integrated into daily living. The program presented in this book has been proven to work--not just in theory, but in real life.

We reap what we sow, but we also reap what others before us have sown. If we do this unconsciously, we find ourselves victims of unfortunate circumstances, but if we are conscious of what we have taken on from our family legacy, we can turn it around. Doctors Bedi and Matthews have worked with people who have carried the burden of their families' best achievements, worst failures, and unrealized dreams. With their experience, we learn to recognize our karmic inheritance and settle our family's karmic accounts so we can redirect our energies in accord with our own true path and passion, our soul's calling. Bedi and Matthews explain how ancestral karma gets energetically encoded in the chakras of our subtle body and manifests as chakra blockages or overactivity. They provide case histories from their patients, an analysis of the Kennedy family history, as well as the archetypal example of the history of the House of Atreus--the Greek legacy of family betrayal stemming from Tantalus to Atreus and Thyestes, to Agamemnon and finally, Orestes. In addition to these examples and illuminating case studies, the authors teach us how to use dreamwork, journaling, and diagramming our family tree as tools for identifying and overcoming inherited karma. To totally comprehend our roots and to realize our destiny, we must look beyond our individual life and understand our ancestral context in order to make sense of our journey. Once we have identified the blessings and the curses we have inherited, we have the possibility of choice. The best way to break old patterns is to work on establishing new ones.

In The Spiritual Child, psychologist Lisa Miller presents the next big idea in psychology: the science and the power of spirituality. She explains the clear, scientific link between spirituality and health and shows that children who have a positive, active relationship to spirituality: * are 40% less likely to use and abuse substances * are 60% less likely to be depressed as teenagers * are 80% less likely to have dangerous or unprotected sex * have significantly more positive markers for thriving including an increased sense of meaning and purpose, and high levels of academic success. Combining cutting-edge research with broad anecdotal evidence from her work as a clinical psychologist to illustrate just how invaluable spirituality is to a child's mental and physical health, Miller translates these findings into practical advice for parents, giving them concrete ways to develop and encourage their children's--as well as their own--well-being. In this provocative, conversation-starting book, Dr. Miller presents us with a pioneering new way to think about parenting our modern youth.

A practicing specialist in the health and education fields for over thirty-five years, Nicholas J. Mason, Ph.D. has typically worked with clients who feel lost in the bewildering environment of their lives. They say they don't know what they feel or what they want from life. They are unclear about where they are going, and they don't know for sure where they have been. These clients complain of feeling helpless, out of control, confused, disoriented and generally unhappy. They are not fulfilled souls. They need a treasure map to lead them back to a more productive and satisfying path. Other clients feel comfortable with their personal lives but have conflicts at work or difficulty getting their careers on track. Some are happy enough personally and professionally but want to eliminate destructive habits or gain greater control over their bodies. Some feel they know what they need to do but lack motivation. Others have severe health problems. They all would prosper from a treasure map that would show them the most productive way to achieve whatever is best for them, in whatever realm of life where they require it. Dr. Mason has developed such a comprehensive Treasure Map to create gratifying lifestyles. Specifically, the Treasure Map reveals that by maintaining heightened conscious awareness, respecting our bodies and spirits, and invoking the powers of our subconscious, we can learn what we really, really want in life and use that knowledge to reach our optimum levels of fulfillment. In his experience, Dr. Mason has found that people who accept this principle and develop the skills to put it into practice solve many of their problems and greatly enhance the quality of their lives. Therefore, the book's primary purpose is to show readers how to create a lifestyle that enables them first to recognize and then realize their deepest ambitions. After the introductory chapters, readers learn how to use their Treasure Map to achieve autonomy and optimize health, careers, and relationships. Each chapter presents anonymous case studies from Dr. Mason's practice and includes specific exercises and practical techniques, as well as narrative explanations.

Although the field of child and adolescent development seems to be an easy one in which to provide active learning opportunities to students, few textbooks currently exist that actually do this. Child Development: An Active Learning Approach includes the following key features: - Challenging Misconceptions: true/false or multiple choice tests are incorporated at the beginning of each chapter to specifically address topics that are sources of misunderstanding amongst students. - Activities with children and adolescents: 'hands-on' activities that complement the ideas of the text, as an integral part of the text, rather than as “add-ons” at the end of each chapter. - 'The journey of research' will introduce students to the process of research that leads from early findings to more refined outcomes through real-life examples - 'Test Yourself' sections include activities that cause students to reflect on an issue through their own experiences to bring about increased motivation and understanding of a specific topic. - The Instructor's Resource CD-ROM includes a computerized test bank, PowerPoint Slides, sample syllabi, suggested in-class learning activities, and homework assignments. - The Student Study Site includes interactive videos, self-quizzes, key term flashcards, SAGE journal articles with accompanying exercises, and web links with accompanying exercises.

Featuring important theories and trends not covered in other foundational texts, this book is designed to equip the next generation of counselors with the tools they need for understanding the core dimensions of the helping relationship. Topical experts provide contemporary information and insight on the following theories: psychoanalytic, Jungian, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, cognitive behavior, dialectical behavior, rational emotive behavior, reality therapy/choice theory, family, feminist, transpersonal, and—new to this edition—solution-focused and narrative therapies, as well as creative approaches to counseling. Each theory is discussed from the perspective of historical background, human nature, major constructs, applications, the change process, traditional and brief intervention strategies, cross-cultural considerations, and limitations. The use of a consistent case study across chapters reinforces the differences between theories. *Requests for digital versions from the ACA can be found on *To request print copies, please visit the ACA website here. *Reproduction requests for material from books published by ACA should be directed to [email protected]
