Genre: Religion

From early Jewish-Christian texts such as the Didache, which present well-defined catechetical programs, to contemporary authors such as Dallas Willard, who offer in-depth insights into the transformations of one's heart and soul, systematic texts on spiritual formation in the Western Christian tradition abound. These texts can offer ministers, researchers, and laypersons much clarity and guidance for their craft. However, the spiritual formation systems that we use are also always contextually influenced; such contextual factors may make them difficult to adapt to one's local work. Rather than turning to only a single text or community, then, it can be helpful for practitioners and theorists to look to a broader set of systematic presentations of spiritual formation. By turning to a group of specific individuals and communities in each era of Western Christian history, this book will help those working in this field to better understand how personal spiritual formation has been conceptualized and embodied. Such an exploration will help us not only to compile a more complete history of spiritual formation at the level of the individual but also to glean a better understanding of personal transformation so that we might engage this craft in more informed and systematic ways.

Reidís persona emerges as a warm, generous, and enthusiastic colleague, who is eager to share how he figured this clinical hypnosis stuff out and integrated it into his practice... [The book] serves quite well to introduce the uninitiated, and those who wish to guide them, about using the power of trance and therapeutic communication in practical ways to become more effective in helping those for whom we care. I wish I had read it in medical school." -- Laurence I. Sugarman, M.D., F.A.A.P., A.B.M.H., Annals of Behavioral Sciences and Medical Education "This is an excellent introductory book for any professional who deals with behavioralhealth issues and would like to add hypnosis to her arsenal of clinical tools."--American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis Clinical hypnosis has been proven through decades of rigorous research and practice to be an effective intervention in a wide range of mental, behavioral, and physical health issues. This highly practical text demystifies clinical hypnosis by providing step-by-step guidance for using its techniques to enhance the repertoire of practitioners in other psychotherapeutic modalities. It offers mental health providers with no formal training in hypnosis the requisite guidance and information they need to learn and confidently apply strategies to help their clients initiate constructive, health-oriented change in their lives.

In addition, the author shows clinicians how they can broaden their practice beyond mental or physical health parameters of treatment by applying hypnosis in areas of personal growth and wellness (motivation, athletic performance, conflict resolution). The text also covers ethical and professional issues related to clinical hypnosis, which does not require special licensure when it is integrated into a psychotherapeutic practice.

Packed with dozens of powerful ideas and creative strategies that can be put to use right away in your practice, this rich, comprehensive resource will help you learn:How to coach each of the nine personality types; how to help each type shift from stuckness to growth; how to work with each type's cognitive distorting filters; how to use the Enneagram with the Robbins-Madanes model; how to use the Enneagram with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator; how to help each Type overcome its key developmental obstacles and much more. “The beauty of this new Enneagram and Coaching book is how the authors have created a non-pathologizing methodology that recognizes both our humanness and our spiritual core. They continuously draw on the wisdom of all three Centers in their process for helping clients become unstuck. They also clearly emphasize the more life-embracing sides of type, and include type-specific guided meditations and practices that are grounded in presence and self-awareness. We highly admire the spirit and depth of their approach to coaching with the Enneagram.” ——Don Riso and Russ Hudson, best-selling authors of Personality Types and The Wisdom of the Enneagram. “Excellent, smart and essential. From Stuckness to Growth is a well-organized, finely detailed synthesis of the Enneagram and MBTI and their complementary insights. The book is clearly written with considerable emphasis on direct, practical applications to helping people change. These include useful scripts, detailed instructions and case studies that will effectively address the needs of both coaches and their clients.” ——Tom Condon, author of The Enneagram Movie & Movie Guide and The Dynamic Enneagram: How To Work With Your Personality Style To Truly Grow and Change“This practical, fluff-free coaching guide integrates the Enneagram, Human Needs psychology, and Jungian concepts in a single, easy-to-use guide. In the spirit of learning by doing, the authors open with an overview and then provide step-by-step templates and tips for working with clients of various types. I love how Yechezkel and Ruth Madanes incorporate the Myers-Briggs preferences to better notice individuals' unique needs and differences. At the same time, From Stuckness to Growth helps the coach or therapist keep key principles and good practices in mind. This is a wonderful resource for use with clients and also for oneself!” ——Dario Nardi, Phd., UCLA professor and author of Neuroscience of Personality“From Stuckness to Growth is a mindful, original, wide-ranging synthesis of the Enneagram with Jung's personality work and Human Needs Psychology. The authors, drawing on their considerable experience as coaches, see through behavior to underlying patterns; the focus throughout is pragmatic and change oriented. There is much hands-on guidance for working with persons of each type, along with practical exercises.”——Michael J. Goldberg, author of The Nine Ways of Working and Travels with Odysseus“Coaches can never have too many tools in their kit—and From Stuckness to Growth is a grounded, practical, yet robust addition. Study it for a deeper understanding of how personality types affect our pursuit of core needs, resulting in different detours or even dead ends in the journey toward meaning and purpose. Use it to ponder the patterns in how you might misinterpret clients because of type differences and then tailor your coaching moves in ways that will resonate with each individual. Keep it nearby as a handy reference for insights into changing your style to meet their needs.”——Jane Kise, Phd., executive coach and author of Differentiated Coaching; past President Association for Psychological Type International
