A coffee percolator. The boiling water is continually cycled through the coffee grounds. We have been busy but we are now getting busier. Someone turned the heat up on our percolator? We are the coffee? The books are the grounds and we are the water? I've never used a percolator. Can one turn up the heat? Let's say we've had chili simmering on the stove and, now, come April, someone sauntered by and turned up the heat to a BOIL! We are attending a number of conferences in April and it will be busy. Holy moly it's good to see you folks.

Here we have Philosophy of Mind. It doubles a bit as a catch-all philosophy section but its birth name is, indeed, Philosophy of Mind. It is located north of the middle of the west wall. Have you purchased the book you came for and are looking for the perfect second title to balance out your walk home? Check out our Philosophy of Mind section. It'll greatly increase your hamster's middle distance endurance.

by Elliot Jurist

Mentalization—the effort to make sense of our own and others' actions, behavior, and internal states—is something we all do.

This concise, engaging book offers a brief overview of mentalization in psychotherapy, focusing on how to help patients understand and reflect on their emotional experiences.

Depression as a Systemic Illness
Edited by James Strain and Michael Blumenfield

Its unique approach and presentation of depression makes it a key resource for clinicians within the fields of both psychiatry and primary care medicine.
Book Review

After the War: Surviving PTSD and Changing Mental Health Culture by Stephane Grenier

So we will not be in Alliston, Ontario on April 17th and 18th for the Grounding Trauma conference. Stéphane Grenier will be there and you may want to be as well. Grenier has written an exceptional book in After the War. A personal memoir of time spent in multiple war zones; this book serves as a window into horrific events and their effects on Grenier and those around him.
            Grenier takes the reader through the very upsetting bureaucracy of The United Nations, the Canadian Government, and the Canadian Military. He also provides an illuminating, and articulate, play by play of his own PTSD, accompanied by informed and accessible explanations throughout. The fulcrum, for me, came while reading his explanation of how one's moral compass is effected by extremely intense moments. He suggests it is like taking a magnet to that compass and, effectively, "shaking the very foundation of how it works and pulling" the individual "in all directions". One is taken on the journey as we experience Grenier's struggle for his own re-calibration. The moving narrative serves to increase any empathy present in the reader and, impressively, to cultivate a path toward empathy should the reader be reluctant to acquire any. I loved this book. You may as well.
