Anna Ostaszewska (Poland)

Psychoterapia integratywna w podejsciu chrzescijanskim (Integrative Psychotherapy, a Christian Approach - in Polish), 2015 and in 2017 – second edition 

Anna 

  "In the concept impress with a lucid, coherent and systematic exploration of the interface

  between integrative psychotherapy and spirituality in which she distinguish

  between healthy and unhealthy spirituality.

  The author made a reasoned and substantial case for the assimilation of spirituality into

  her approach to integrative psychotherapy which neither compromises her faith nor the

  profession of psychotherapy. This is a commendable achievement. The capacity to speak

  with authority to both worlds is rare in my experience." (Kenneth Evans, past president of the European

  Association of Integrative Psychotherapy)

Olga Krasnikova (Russia)

“Loneliness” (in Russian) Nikea, 2015. 

Olga Krasnikova — counseling  psychologist,  psychology lecturer,  the head of the psychological center “Sobesednik”,  rector assistant of Moscow ICP.

Olga  The book is dedicated to the problem of loneliness.

  The “solo” way of life is  widespread today. But Olga Krasnikova’s book is

  not about formally lonely existence which, by the way, can be comfortable.

  It is about deep loneliness. About the broken communication of a person

  with other people, with the world , and first of all – with

  himself. This dissonance can occur at any time, in bitter and

  joyful circumstances, and even in quite safe family life background.

 

 It is impossible to overcome the feeling of senselessness and emptiness, reestablish the lost communication until the person adjusts the dialogue with himself, accepting his existential loneliness.

 It is amazing how many of us avoid  meeting with themselves. What is that we don’t accept in ourselves or are afraid of? The quiet and wise book of Olga Krasnikova helps us to understand it.

 

Olga Krasnikova (Russia)

“Delays and unfulfilled promises”(in Russian), Nikea 2014

There are people who are always late. And there are those who always come in time and become nervous when they are forced to wait. There are fans of promise, but  not its performing. Others, on the contrary, are trying to keep their word and demand the same from others. Anyway, we are suffering from delays and unfulfilled promises – our own or others, so the book  by the psychologist Olga Krasnikova applies to absolutely everyone. After reading it, you can understand why some people are so hard to come in time, and learn how to minimize the damage caused by their own or someone else carelessness and perhaps become a little more tolerant.

 

 

Werner May (Germany)

Anleitungen zum Staunen. Sich im Geheimnis verwurzeln. IGNIS-Edition, Kitzingen , 2014 

(Instructions for astonishment. Becoming rooted in mystery. In German.)

Werner 

  Astonishment keeps you young. Because children are astonished. We capture something

  of being a child again when we are astonished: spontaneous or carefree reactions, all that

  is natural to children, become available to us as adults.

  Being astonished motivates us to want to know more about what we are astonished by.

  We notice there is still much for us to experience. Space for

  experience opens up surprisingly and therefore with freshness.

  Being astonished awakens in us a fundamental sense of something greater or more

significant, tends to draw us up beyond ourselves. This not only motivates us, but also makes us more humble,

more ready to receive.

 

 

 

Eric Johnson (USA)

God and Soul Care: The Therapeutic Resources of the Christian Faith (2017)

Eric 2  Christianity, at its heart, is a therapeutic faith—a religion of soul care.The story of

  Christianity is a story of divine therapy. God's therapeutic agenda begins in the perfect

  triune communion of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  The triune God created human beings to flourish by participating in his glory, but human

  beings rebelled against this agenda and fell into the psychopathology of sin. God

  therapeutically intervened in Jesus Christ to bring about healing in body and soul.

Through his incarnation, life, death, resurrection, and exaltation, Christ put to death the

soul-disordering consequences of sin and brought about a new creation through union with and conformity to him.

Foundations for Soul Care: A Christian Psychology Proposal (2004)

eric 3   

  In this groundbreaking work of first-order scholarship, Eric Johnson makes a vitally

  important contribution to the field of Christian counseling. He first presents a detailed

  overview and appreciative but critical evaluation of the reigning paradigms in the field

  of Christian counseling, particularly biblical counseling and integration. Building on their

  respective strengths, he seeks to move beyond the current impasse in the field and

  develop a more unified and robustly Christian understanding.
