Thanks for staying subscribed. It means a lot to us.
Hello all. Welcome to 2021. May each day of this year be facilitating and enlightening for you. This year and beyond.
We are strongly encouraging prepayment under the current lock down if you are doing curbside pickup. We accept e-transfers if that is information you appreciate.
There are shipping delays and, before that, there are Caversham delays. We just have a lot of orders and phone calls for which we are extremely grateful. This does mean that five gremlins can only do what five gremlins can do. As far as pretending we are six gremlins that is sadly impossible. 
So we may take one to three days to get some orders out the door. That is not because we are staring at your packaged order, smoking cigarettes and drinking martinis, laughing at you. It is because we are endeavouring to minimize mistakes and get everything out and sometimes things bottleneck you see. The first thing I will do when all this is over is buy my nephew an ice cream cone. You folks keep up the good work. Word is spreading of your magnificence.

-Newsletter Neil

Therapy with a Map: A Cognitive Analytic Approach to Helping Relationships
Steve Potter

A therapeutic relationship is a web of interactions, tasks and processes in space and time. It is not easy to stay aware of the relationship in the thick of talking and trying to help someone; but doing so boosts flexibility and enables deeper formulation. A therapist who can attend not only to a specific therapeutic model, but also to relational factors underlying all therapy, has a far greater chance of enabling change.
Therapy with a Map sets out a therapeutic process of talking accompanied by visual conversation maps set down in real time on paper. Like all maps, these help us to find our way, notice when we are lost, track our route and survey the wider landscape. [More. . .]

Emancipatory Perspectives on Madness: Psychological, Social, and Spiritual Dimensions
Marie Brown and Robin S. Brown (Eds)

This collection offers a diverse range of perspectives that seek to find meaning in madness. Mainstream biomedical approaches tend to interpret experiences commonly labelled "psychotic" as being indicative of a biological illness that can best be ameliorated with prescription drugs. In seeking to counter this perspective, psychosocial outlooks commonly focus on the role of trauma and environmental stress. Although an appreciation for the role of trauma has been critical in expanding the ways in which we view madness, an emphasis of this kind may nevertheless continue to perpetuate a subtle form of reductivism—madness continues to be understood as the product of a deficit.
