It is a great pleasure to gaze into your eyes from this screen. Sorry I'm so late this month. I wasn't wasting my life away playing Crokinole or anything. It was all due to above board Caversham happenings. We have been to events and we have been mailing boxes of books here and there. We are so grateful for the buzzings in and out of our shop.
Each day would pass and Newsletter Neil would wilt a little more like the weakest flower in a Tim Burton film. Foiled again by father time! Well, there is no day like April 16th to do something one had an obligation to do on April 1st. 
So I'm in a weekly group that exists to helps its members with social anxiety. The book we use is awesome but being in the group has made the fact that Caversham has yet to sell our UK edition of Shrinking Violets an acutely heartbreaking truth for me to cope with. The subtitle is "a field guide to shyness". How could anyone resist such wordsies? Each of you is an incredibly classy individual so I am sure one of you will buy it now that I have guided you to it. In the event that nobody does I will have to buy it myself. I am happy to do so but what would it say about human beings if not a soul was willing to extend their virtual paw into cyberspace and extract this pound of style for their bookshelf. 'Fact is that you sweeties are the coolest people on earth and one of you will, quite rightly, not be able to resist such a thoughtful and debonair pile of words and paper. Go on then. . . eh? Please.
Ship to Schore! Can you read me anymore? Yes. See below.
The Development of the Unconscious Mind
Allan N. Schore
This book traces the evolution of the concept of the unconscious from an intangible, metapsychological abstraction to a psychoneurobiological function of a tangible brain. An integration of current findings in the neurobiological and developmental sciences offers a deeper understanding of the dynamic mechanisms of the unconscious. The relevance of this reformulation to clinical work is a central theme of Schore's other new book, Right Brain Psychotherapy. [More. . .]
Right Brain Psychotherapy
Allan N. Schore
An exploration into the adaptive functions of the emotional right brain, which describes not only affect and affect regulation within minds and brains, but also the communication and interactive regulation of affects between minds and brains. This book offers evidence that emotional interactions reflect right-brain-to-right-brain affective communication. Essential reading for those trying to understand one-person psychology as well as two-person psychology relationships, whether clinical or otherwise. [More. . .]

Treating Risky and Compulsive Behavior in Trauma Survivors
John Briere
From leading authority John Briere, this book provides a comprehensive treatment approach for survivors of childhood trauma who numb or avoid emotional distress by engaging in substance abuse, risky sexual activities, self-injury, suicidality, bingeing and purging, or other self-harming behaviors. 
Newsletter Neil aside: We are very happy this book is here. Very happy indeed.

Hot Off The Press!
Lots of new arrivals this month! Here is just a sample but please click here to view a (long) list of highlights.

The Collected Schizophrenias: Essays
Esmé Weijun Wang

Schizophrenia is not a single unifying diagnosis, and Esmé Weijun Wang writes not just to her fellow members of the “collected schizophrenias” but to those who wish to understand it as well. Opening with the journey toward her diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder, Wang discusses the medical community’s own disagreement about labels and procedures for diagnosing those with mental illness, and then follows an arc that examines the manifestations of schizophrenia in her life. An essay collection of undeniable power, The Collected Schizophrenias dispels misconceptions and provides insight into a condition long misunderstood. [More. . .]

Let that Sh*t Go
Nina Purewal and Kete Petriw

It’s no wonder you can’t calm down: your to-do list is as long as your arm, your bank balance keeps dropping, you feel guilty for not calling your parents more often and there always seems to be a big deadline to meet at work. You need a serious breather—but you can barely find time to shower, let alone to exercise or meditate.
In Let That Sh*t Go, Kate Petriw and Nina Purewal share the wisdom they’ve gained though decades of practising and teaching others to find peace of mind no matter how busy they are. Learn to put your life in perspective, take each day one step at a time and steal moments of calm amid the chaos. And remember: it’s not worth holding onto that sh*t. [More. . .]

Knowing, Not-Knowing, and Jouissance: Levels, Symbols, and Codes of Experience in Psychoanalysis
Sophie Hannah

This book explores the practice and transmission of Lacanian and Freudian theory. It discusses the pure versus applied analysis of Lacanian and Freudian theory in practice; and the hierarchical versus circular transmissions within psychoanalytic organizations.
Underpinned by extensive practical knowledge of the clinic, this work examines the differences between Freud and Lacan in their understanding of the subject and the unconscious and pushes them in new directions. [more. . .]

Handbook of Personality Development
Dan P. McAdams, , Rebecca L. Shiner, and Jennifer L. Tackett (Eds)

Bringing together prominent scholars, this authoritative volume considers the development of personality at multiple levels—from the neuroscience of dispositional traits to the cultural shaping of life stories. Illustrated with case studies and concrete examples, the Handbook integrates areas of research that have often remained disparate. It offers a lifespan perspective on the many factors that influence each individual's psychological makeup and examines the interface of personality development with health, psychopathology, relationships, and the family.

Translating Happiness: A Cross-Cultural Lexicon of Well-Being
Tim Lomas

Western psychology is rooted in the philosophies and epistemologies of Western culture. But what of concepts and insights from outside this frame of reference? Certain terms not easily translatable into English—for example, nirva?a (from Sanskrit), or agápe (from Classical Greek), or turangawaewae (from Maori)—are rich with meaning but largely unavailable to English-speaking students and seekers of wellbeing. [More. . .]

How to Keep Your Cool: An Ancient Guide to Anger Management
Seneca—Selected, translated, and introduced by James Romm

Timeless wisdom on controlling anger in personal life and politics from the Roman Stoic philosopher and statesman Seneca
In his essay “On Anger” (De Ira), the Roman Stoic thinker Seneca (c. 4 BC–65 AD) argues that anger is the most destructive passion: “No plague has cost the human race more dear.” This was proved by his own life, which he barely preserved under one wrathful emperor, Caligula, and lost under a second, Nero. [More. . .]
 

Our Psychiatric Future
Nikolas Rose

Our everyday lives are increasingly intertwined with psychiatry and discussions of mental health. Yet the dominant medical discipline of psychiatry remains surrounded by controversy. Is mental distress really an illness like any other, treatable by drugs? Can psychiatrists differentiate between mental disorders, normal eccentricities, anxieties or even sadness? Should the power of psychiatrists be challenged by the knowledge of those with lived experience of mental ill health? [More. . .]
Ever wonder if there is anywhere to have something to eat near Caversham? wonder no more. I have mentioned many delectable eateries in the past. There are two new ones that are as comforting as a Saint Bernard with cold medication hanging around its neck. Across the street from my regular house of worship we have Matha Roti at 141 Harbord Street. Life changing East Indian cuisine. I had some yesterday in fact. Another brand new culinary palace is the Annex Food Hall. I am partial to El Nahual tacos but there are many options under the one roof. Don't let tummy rumble get in the way of book shopping!
Reflections on Long-Term Relational Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis: Relational Analysis Interminable
Susan Lord (Ed)
Most therapists will work intensively with several of their clients over many years, but more examination and exploration are needed into what is taking place inside of these mutual long-term relationships. Each contributor offers theoretical material, case examples, and some discussion about their views and experiences with long-term work.
Newsletter Neil adds: Local rock star Patricia DeYoung contributes chapter two. Very exciting! 
As soon as I decide to try and kill two birds with one stone I forget about one of the birds and misplace the stone.
