Positive Discipline, Parenting, and Spirituality

Journeys of Faith:
Religion, Spirituality & Humanistic Psychology

Journeys of Faith: Religion, Spirituality, and Humanistic Psychology is about the intersection of a now hallowed approach to psychotherapy, today referred to as humanistic, or person-centered, counseling, and the broad religious/spiritual world that its first practitioners found themselves engaging, often much to their surprise. What is humanistic psychology? Where did it come from? How did it replace the two storied therapies–Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis and B. F. Skinner’s behaviorism–that had previously dominated counseling? And why and how did the practitioners of humanistic psychology find themselves engaging spiritual and religious questions, which hitherto had been understood by most psychologists as foreign to their field of interest? These are the questions Journeys of Faith: Religion, Spirituality, and Humanistic Psychology addresses.

Be Still and Know that I Am God:
Reflections on God, Connection, and the Gift of Presence

Be still and know that I am God.” For centuries, this beloved verse from Psalms (46:10) has been a source of comfort for those who seek a closer connection with God, however we might understand God. A timeless reminder that God is ever present, it offers the simplest prescription for connection with the divine: Still yourself, quiet yourself, center yourself . . . and God will appear. Today, as we experience the demands of an increasingly hectic and all-consuming world distracting us from our connection to the divine, the reminder that God’s presence is as close as our willingness to still ourselves is more welcome than ever.

Parenting through the School Years… and Beyond!

Parenting through the School Years . . . and Beyond! looks at parenting issues that typically surface during and related to the schooling years, approximately ages 5 through 18. It focuses on three key parenting behaviors that have been found to correlate with success and happiness in school–providing opportunities for contribution in the home, affirming our children by showing real interest in who they are, and providing an emotionally safe home environment–and demonstrates how these behaviors help our children navigate the school years and become respectful, responsible, interdependent adults.
