Well before his entry into the religious life in the spring of 386 C.E., Augustine had embarked on a lengthy comparison between teachings on the self in the philosophical traditions of Platonism and Neoplatonism and the treatment of the topic in the Psalms, the letters of St. Paul, and other books of the Bible. Brian Stock argues that Augustine, over the course of these reflections, gradually abandoned a dualistic view of the self, in which the mind and the body play different roles, and developed the notion of an integrated self, in which the mind and body function interdependently. Stock identifies two intellectual techniques through which Augustine effected this change in his thought. One, lectio divina, was an early Christian approach to reading that engaged both mind and body. The other was a method of self-examination that consisted of framing an interior Socratic dialogue between Reason and the individual self. Stock investigates practices of writing, reading, and thinking across a range of premodern texts to demonstrate how Augustine builds upon the rhetorical traditions of Cicero and the inner dialogue of Plutarch to create an introspective and autobiographical version of self-study that had little to no precedent. The Integrated Self situates these texts in a broad historical framework while being carefully attuned to what they can tell us about the intersections of mind, body, and medicine in contemporary thought and practice. It is a book in which Stock continues his project of reading Augustine, and one in which he moves forward in new and perhaps unexpected directions.

Contemporary research supports the importance of spirituality for mental health. Counselors, social workers, psychologists and other therapists wonder how to include spirituality in treatment. Mental health training and current treatment models do not equip clinicians to adequately address the topic of spirituality. The Integrated Self presents a model for identifying and assessing spirituality within the client’s own life and experience. By operationally defining spirituality as a dimension of the client’s experience, The Integrated Self explores the role of culture, values, beliefs, and lifestyle for understanding the spiritual dimension of the person. Using case studies, clinicians learn how to implement the model of the integrated self within their existing theoretical orientation. The Integrated Self also includes discussions on the approaches for spiritual assessment and ethical issues related incorporating spirituality in mental health treatment. While other books focus on religious beliefs, spiritual practices, or formulations of a general kind of spirituality, The Integrated Self provides a model for a holistic approach that can be adapted in both mental health and health care settings.

Self Fragmentation and Self Integration in People with Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia has long been regarded as the most important mental problem since the twentieth century. Apart from the biochemical and genetic models, there are many psychosocial theories including psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, phenomenological, existential, biochemical as well as social construction perspectives in explaining the cause and recovery of schizophrenia. Under the domination of biochemical and genetic models, the treatment, services and recovery work for clients with schizophrenia are undermined. Professionals may follow the recovery orientation and focus on hospitalisation as the sole concern in recovery and treatment. However in doing so, they fail to connect with the rich and solid foundation of related theories in schizophrenia in past centuries. In addition, the subjective experiences of people with schizophrenia are severely ignored and neglected by related parties. This book serves to bridge this theoretical gap by a profound revisit of different perspectives and concepts in self-fragmentation of persons with schizophrenia. Within phenomenological, psychodynamic, sociological and existential perspectives, clients with schizophrenia harbor an intense urge for an integrated self-system and ontological existence behind their fragmented psychotic experiences. Within the self-fragmentation and self-integration dilemma, three dynamic forces are identified. They are self-splitting versus self-cohesions, self-concealment versus self-visibility, and self-destruction versus self-preservation. This integration, when it occurs, can finally leas to a full mental health recovery. That includes three positive forces: self-cohesion, self-visibility and self-preservation, which enable the individual with schizophrenia to restore a normal integration system with a normal life and social functioning within an integrated and supportive community.

Two-thirds of the way through my thirty-eight year career as a Clinical Psychologist I felt the need to describe and understand exactly what I had been doing as I attempted to help counselees, and why I seemed to be successful. This self-analysis forced me to develop working definitions of life, consciousness, freewill, self-development, and self-transcendence, and led me to conclude that to be successful in psychotherapy counselees must be taught the effective use of consciousness. Sharing what I have learned is my way of thanking those thousands of counselees who have shared their lives with me and enabled me to learn about myself. I also hope that reading this book will encourage my psychotherapeutic colleagues to put even more effort into their own self-analysis. For me, the effort was worthwhile. At the close of my career, I am finally comfortable that what I was doing was exactly what I should have been doing.

Integration and self regulation of quality management in Dutch agri food supply chains

During the last decade, sector wide crises in agriculture have rapidly followed each other, resulting in serious consumer concerns about the quality and safety of agri-food products. To prevent new crises, governments have developed quality regulations and retailers have introduced quality management standards. However, concerns have been raised about the administrative burdens placed on firms, because they must comply with many private and public quality regulations. Therefore, both government and firms strive for more integration and self regulation of quality management systems.By combining managerial and economic theory, this study builds a framework to demonstrate the impact of integrated quality management on self regulation and performance. Using empirical evidence from the poultry meat, the fruit and vegetable and the flower and potted plant chains, this study shows that integrated quality management systems positively affect performance and self regulation. However, it is necessary to find committed partners that share the firm's quality objectives. In most cases, too strict enforcement of quality requirements is destructive, initiates conflict and does not lead to higher performance. Furthermore, governmental agencies should focus on innovative approaches to assure quality. Not legislation, but factors such as media attention and corporate social responsibility enlarge the integration of quality management systems.This book is recommended for a broad audience of professionals, practitioners and policy makers who concern themselves with the design, management and assessment of quality management and self regulation in agri-food supply chains.

Self deception and the Common Life

Self-Deception and the Common Life investigates the topic of self-deception from three points of view: philosophical psychology, ethics, and theology. Empirical evidence and an -ordinary language- analysis support the case that the linguistic expression 'self-deception' is literally meaningful and that the language of the common life can be trusted. After critically analyzing the cognition, translation, and action accounts, along with the contributions of Freud and Sartre, Steffen proposes a new synthetic -emotional perception- account, one that avoids paradox. Giving attention to relevant moral issues, he argues that self-deception is not immoral, but represents a peculiar form of akrasia. Finally, because theologians employ 'self-deception' to describe the cognitive component of sin, Steffen considers the logic of theological self-deception. His study seeks an -intimate acquaintance- with self-deception and exemplifies a method of analysis relevant to constructive theological inquiry."

Intrinsic Motivation and Self Determination in Human Behavior

Early in this century, most empirically oriented psychologists believed that all motivation was based in the physiology of a set of non-nervous system tissue needs. The theories of that era reflected this belief and used it in an attempt to explain an increasing number of phenomena. It was not until the 1950s that it became irrefutably clear that much of human motivation is based not in these drives, but rather in a set of innate psychological needs. Their physiological basis is less understood; and as concepts, these needs lend themselves more easily to psycho logical than to physiological theorizing. The convergence of evidence from a variety of scholarly efforts suggests that there are three such needs: self-determination, competence, and interpersonal relatedness. This book is primarily about self-determination and competence (with particular emphasis on the former), and about the processes and structures that relate to these needs. The need for interpersonal relat edness, while no less important, remains to be explored, and the findings from those explorations will need to be integrated with the present theory to develop a broad, organismic theory of human motivation. Thus far, we have articulated self-determination theory, which is offered as a working theory-a theory in the making. To stimulate the research that will allow it to evolve further, we have stated self-determination theory in the form of minitheories that relate to more circumscribed domains, and we have developed paradigms for testing predictions from the various minitheories.

The Integrated Astrological Guide continues with this second volume. This particular text deals with the encoding of information both astrologically and generally that interferes with and colors our critical thinking skills and ability for accurate foresight. Although myths are used to convey concepts, the running theme in all works is that neither astrology nor myths “cause” anything, and that each person’s reality is the result of free will effort and choices at every given moment. They do however; reflect engrained archetypal belief structures passed down over millennia. Those belief structures do affect reality. Logical rules will be increased in this volume and fallacious thinking illuminated not only in traditional astrological principles, but in widely accepted social attitudes.

This ground-breaking book was written to help teachers do the seemingly impossible - engage in one-to-one and small-group teaching and learning experiences with twenty-five to thirty students in the classroom. The innovative model is based on the concept of learning stations - carefully designed and equipped classroom areas in which four to six students work together to accomplish a specific educational task. Learning stations may be as simple as a table and chairs used for specific learning discussions, or as "high tech" as two or three computers networked together sharing a printer, an area for videotaping, or an area for watching videotapes or videodisk. The educational plan for using learning stations is the defining feature of the model. The teaching and learning design presented offers a commonsense, effective strategy for integrating technology and effective teaching to provide the personalized learning students need today. Step-by-step, it takes the reader through the transition from the traditional to the technology-based classroom, and from an authoritarian teaching model to a more collaborative one. Readers will appreciate this ready-to-use resource, filled with detailed explanations, sample plans, dozens of classroom examples, and a real understanding of teacher concerns about incorporating new technology and new methods into their teaching. The author has thoroughly pilot-tested, revised, and debugged the suggested plans and activities in the classroom.
