Arup K. Chakraborty and Andrey S. Shaw | Illustrated by Philip J.S. Stork

How viruses emerge to cause pandemics, how our immune system combats them, and how diagnostic tests, vaccines, and antiviral therapies work.

Throughout history, humans have contended with pandemics. History is replete with references to plagues, pestilence, and contagion, but the devastation wrought by pandemics had been largely forgotten by the twenty-first century.  [More. . .]

Transforming the Living Legacy of Trauma: A Workbook for Survivors and Therapists
Janina Fisher

Traumatic experiences leave a “living legacy” of effects that often persist for years and decades after the events are over. Historically, it has always been assumed that re-telling the story of what happened would resolve these effects.

However, survivors report a different experience: Telling and re-telling the story of what happened to them often reactivates their trauma responses, overwhelming them rather than resolving the trauma.

Deborah Abrahams and Poul Rohleder

This book is a resource for psychodynamic psychotherapy that gives helpful and practical guidelines around a range of patient presentations and clinical dilemmas.

The Lacanian Review, Issue #10: Paranoia
Marie-Hélène Brousse (Editor in Chief)

The 10th volume of The Lacanian Review examines paranoia from the early formations of Jacques Lacan’s work to the contemporary pandemic politics of conspiracy. Paranoia is not only a clinical structure of psychosis cast in the folie a deux that ends in an orgy of blood, as Lacan recounts the infamous crime of the Papin Sisters, but also as the origin of the speaking being, following a new translation of a foundational lesson by Jacques-Alain Miller.
The previous volume of The Lacanian Review (TLR) examined a moment when a chasm opened in the big Other. If the consistency of the semblants, like Truth, were already threadbare, the pandemic ripped them apart. [More. . .]

Cup of Tea with Sadness
Ron Chelsvig

This is absolutely an IFS book for kids!
Children are often told both how and when they should feel. It's no wonder, then, that we struggle with our emotions--when we're sometimes shamed and blamed for having them in the first place, it can be difficult to learn how to express them in a healthy way. [More. . .]

Ketamine | The MIT Essential Knowledge Series
Bita Moghaddam

Ketamine, approved in 2019 by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of depression, has been touted by scientists and media reports as something approaching a miracle cure. This volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series chronicles the ascent of a drug that has been around for fifty years–in previous incarnations, a Vietnam-era combat anesthetic and a popular club drug–that has now been reinvented as a treatment for depression. Bita Moghaddam, a leading researcher in neuropharmacology, explains the scientific history and the biology of ketamine, its clinical use, and its recently discovered antidepressant effects, for the nonspecialist reader.[More. . .]

A Search for Clarity: Science and Philosophy in Lacan's Oeuvre
Jean-Claude Milner

In A Search for Clarity: Science and Philosophy in Lacan’s Oeuvre, Jean-Claude Milner argues that although Jacques Lacan’s writing is notoriously obscure his oeuvre is entirely clear. In a discussion that considers the difference between the esoteric and exoteric works of Plato and Aristotle, Milner argues that Lacan’s oeuvre is to be found in his published writings alone, not his transcribed seminars, and that these published writings contain his official doctrine. This means that Lacan’s oeuvre is already complete, even though many of his seminars remain unpublished.

Intersections of Privilege and Otherness in Counselling and Psychotherapy: Mockingbird
Dwight Turner

To address the absence of the exploration of the unconscious experience of privilege within counselling and psychotherapy, the book not only presents an exploration of intersectional difference, but also discusses the deeper unconscious understanding of difference, and how privilege plays a role in the construction of otherness. It does so by utilising material from both within the world of psychotherapy, and from the fields of post-colonial theory, feminist discourse, and other theoretical areas of relevance. [More. . .]

What is Normal?
Jane Ryan and Roz Carroll (Eds) 

Many people strive to be normal, and deviation from accepted norms can feel like failure. But why do we want to be normal? And what does that mean? Ordinary? Sane? Similar? When probed, the notion of normality starts to look fragile. It is not clear who decides what being normal means or who is entitled to say. Nonetheless, concerns about conforming and being accepted are deeply pervasive. With an extraordinary diversity of perspectives, the authors featured in this collection – all psychotherapists – use biographical accounts, political analyses and clinical vignettes to challenge the concept of normality.
