Desiderata for Cat Lovers

What could be more placid amid noise and haste than a cat staring quietly out into a dramatic skyscape, her soft fur reflecting the light?

What could be more placid amid noise and haste than a cat staring quietly out into a dramatic skyscape, her soft fur reflecting the light? Or more peaceful than sleeping kittens cuddled up together in a pile? Does anything illustrate the idea of "being on good terms with all persons” more than a sweet, small feline sitting atop a large, calm dog? From photos of a meowing kitty ("speak your truth quietly and clearly”) to another happily licking her paw ("beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself”), this Desiderata will charm every cat lover and provide spiritual sustenance, too.

Desiderata for Dog Lovers

Man’s best friend has always been a source of comfort and calm for owners--and that makes the combination of dogs and Desiderata such a superb match.

Man’s best friend has always been a source of comfort and calm for owners--and that makes the combination of dogs and Desiderata such a superb match. Each phrase in the poem receives just the right accompanying image: a black Lab resting quietly on the beach illustrates "and remember what peace there may be in silence.” A cute mutt with its face cocked to the side--as if concentrating on a conversation--demonstrates what it means to "listen to others.” A pair consisting of one large and one small doggie reveals the truth that: "For always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.” Every dog lover will be charmed.

Desiderata for Baby Lovers

Nothing could more perfectly illustrate the Desiderata’s mood and meaning better than this gallery of innocent, adorable tots.

Nothing could more perfectly illustrate the Desiderata’s mood and meaning better than this gallery of innocent, adorable tots. A peacefully sleeping infant helps us remember "what peace there may be in silence” and a tiny hand gripping the edge of a crib shows exactly what it means to "nurture strength of spirit.” It’s an inspired and unusual pairing of words and images that would be the ideal gift for a mom-to-be at her baby shower, expectant grandparents, and every parent.

For nearly a century, Max Ehrmann's famous poem “Desiderata” has inspired people. But what do youdo with stirring words? How do you act on the insights they provide?

Slavit, PhD, shares his practical and psychological perspectives on how to live its truths. Organizing the poem into nineteen offerings, he suggests concrete ways you can practice Ehrmann's wisdom in your everyday life. From being on good terms with all people, to speaking your truth quietly and clearly, to keeping peace in your soul, the lessons covered in this poem are all encompassing. Though “Desiderata” serves as a springboard, this guide draws from Dr. Slavit's forty-year career in human services and provides proven principles for happiness as well as ways to recognize and refute typical irrational beliefs. Grounded in psychology, philosophy, and science, Lessons from Desiderata helps you achieve the peace and joy the poem encourages as you learn to “be gentle with yourself” and “be cheerful”—no matter what life throws your way.

Empiricism and the Foundations of Psychology

Intended for philosophically minded psychologists and psychologically minded philosophers, this book identifies the ways that psychology has hobbled itself by adhering too strictly to empiricism, this being the doctrine that all knowledge is observation-based. In the first part of this two-part work, we show that empiricism is false. In the second part, we identify the psychology-relevant consequences of this fact. Five of these are of special importance: (i) Whereas some psychopathologies (e.g. obsessive-compulsive disorder) corrupt the activity mediated by one's psychological architecture, others (e.g. sociopathy) corrupt that architecture itself. (ii) The basic tenets of psychoanalysis are coherent. (iii) All propositional attitudes are beliefs. (iv) Selves are minds that self-evaluate. And: (v) It is by giving our thoughts a perceptible form that we enable ourselves to evaluate them, and it is by expressing ourselves in language and art that we give our thoughts a perceptible form.

In Understanding Clergy Misconduct in Religious Systems, you’ll take an incisive look at why sexual misconduct occurs in religious systems and how to implement proactive strategies for holistic change. Applicable to both Jewish and Christian communities, this illuminating exploration takes a look at the psychology behind scapegoating, why it is perpetuated, and how you can quell the damaging tradition of silence. Understanding Clergy Misconduct in Religious Systems helps you see leaders of religious institutions in a way that the world has been afraid to see them--in a glass clearly. Enriched with metaphoric myths and fairy tales instead of technical jargon, its unique systemic perspective reveals the psychodynamics behind the obsession with family secrets and lets you understand this dysfunction from the perspectives of victim, abuser, and counselor. These specific areas will both inform and aid you in dealing with this difficult subject: the religious institution as a family system the religious system as an illusion of the perfect family the concept of God-transference and the overidealization of clergy clergy personal relationships and clergy congregational relationships vulnerability and the psychology of the victim strategies for healing dysfunctional religious systems Understanding Clergy Misconduct in Religious Systems comes at just the right time--in an era when little has been written on the subject, especially from a systemic perspective, this work comes at a time when the phenomena of clergy sexual misconduct has rocked the very foundation of religious systems worldwide. Whether you’re a lay congregational leader, judicatory administrator, pastoral counselor, psychologist, or seminarian, you’ll find that the coping strategies and intervention techniques it outlines will guide you in pinpointing the sickness at its source and restoring felicity and order to your religious leaders and their communities.
