The chorus of the Christian hymn “Amazing Grace” reads, “I once was lost, but now am found, / Was blind but now I see.” Composed by a minister who formerly worked as a slave trader, the song expresses his experience of divine intervention that ultimately caused him to see the error of his ways. This theme of personal awakening is a feature of countless stories throughout history, where the “lost” and the “blind” are saved from darkness and despair by suddenly seeing the light. In Seeing the Light, Thomas DeGloma explores such accounts of personal awakening, in stories that range from the discovery of a religious truth to remembering a childhood trauma to embracing a new sexual orientation. He reveals a common social pattern: When people discover a life-changing truth, they typically ally with a new community. Individuals then use these autobiographical stories to shape their stances on highly controversial issues such as childhood abuse, war and patriotism, political ideology, human sexuality, and religion. Thus, while such stories are seemingly very personal, they also have a distinctly social nature. Tracing a wide variety of narratives through nearly three thousand years of history, Seeing the Light uncovers the common threads of such stories and reveals the crucial, little-recognized social logic of personal discovery.

From the Foreword: Robert and DeMethra’s book, MeSearching and ReSearch, has caught my fancy in a number of ways. The book title cleverly captures what SPN is all about—it is about self narratives (the “mesearch” part) and about scholarly meaning making (the “research” part). This eyecatching title also illuminates the authors’ intent to turn this seemingly intimidating method of selfinquiry into something very accessible and doable. Their jargonfree language is friendly and inviting. Although they don’t intend to make their many methodological tips and tools too prescriptive, their practical suggestions provided in this guide book are, indeed, helpful and useful. I believe that Robert and DeMethra have demonstrated admirable talents as effective educators by unpacking the complex method of SPN writing into bitesized steps. I am fully convinced that the steps will help both novices, and the experienced researcher, to reach the ultimate height of producing engaging, and scholarly significant, SPN’s. The book is also fun to read. The authors intersperse throughout their own SPN’s, pedagogical insights from their doing and teaching, and reallife stories, in order to illustrate the methodological process, challenges, and triumphs.

Humans have always searched for ways to lead a meaningful and purposeful life filled with contentment, happiness, and a sense of flourishing. Today the hallmarks of our societies are drug and alcohol abuse, depression, anxiety, stress-related illnesses, suicide, terrorism, and racial conflicts. Something has gone wrong. This book reviews the history of philosophy from the pre-Socratic philosophers and early Eastern philosophies through existentialists and postmodern philosophers. There is a short but important review of Darwinian science and modern physics as it relates to our philosophy of life. The scientific fields of physics, chemistry, biology, and psychology show that there is increasing order, complexity, and consciousness in the universe. This has led to what has been called “the law of consciousness and complexity.” Using this evidence, a new “evolutionary theory of meaning” shows us how a rational philosophy that reflects truths from science and spirituality can allow us to fully embrace a path that lets us discover our own meaning and purpose in life.

This text offers an extensive array of theories, including all the mainstream approaches as well as contemporary ones such as narrative, feminist, and post-modern. The author provides an integrative framework that allows students to assess the various theories with respect to possible clinical application. By comparing and contrasting the theories, as well as analyzing strengths and weaknesses of each, students will learn to apply them more flexibly in practice. The book is divided into four major theoretical forces in psychotherapy and introductory sections are provided to help students place a particular theory within a major theoretical period. The four theoretical forces discussed are: (1) psychoanalytical and psychodynamic; (2) behavioral and cognitive school(s); (3) existentialism and humanism; and (4) social constructivism school of psychotherapy. The author discusses social constructivism and then describes at least five theoretical approaches within this theoretical force--solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy, strengths-based therapy, and so on.

In Life Tuneups, Loren Slocum empowers and reminds all women—single, married, working, with or without kids—to recognize their unique gifts, celebrate their inner beauty, and take care of themselves as they juggle the myriad facets of their lives. She insists that when a woman is true to herself, she really can have it all—that she can wake up each day feeling motivated, energized, inspired, and passionate about her life. Each chapter begins by defining a word—woman, journey, passion, great, feminine, balance, space, rituals—and then examines what it means in women's lives today. Writing in the first and second person, Loren speaks to readers in the same warm and reassuring tone that has earned her such distinction as a personal development seminar leader, speaker, life fulfillment coach—and mom. Life Tuneups shows how true leadership emerges when a woman steers away from the fast lane to martyrhood and begins to move toward rediscovering her inner core. It encourages women to think about the important things in life, and gives examples of others—both everyday women and famous women—who have pulled through difficult situations. And it guides women through the process of achieving balance and happiness in the little things—whether in morning rituals, journaling, or pampering themselves. Self-assessment prompts and questions throughout help women reconnect with their dreams and passions. Ultimately, Life Tuneups teaches women that they must take time for themselves, and it gives them the tools to go from ideology to action, to incorporate real—and lasting—change into their lives.
