About Dreams

$19.99 $15.99

by Suzanne T. Saldarini
Illustrations by Simeone, Lou
Psychoanalytic Thought for Youth Series
ISBN: 9780984870066 (soft, color)

School-age children are drawn to mysteries – what can be more mysterious than a dream? The importance of this topic for children rests in the tough questions raised by frightening dreams. For example, where do such scary images come from? Will those things really happen? Why do I dream anyway? Inviting readers to explore these issues encourages them to confront and diminish anxiety. Observing connections between events, feelings, decisions and wishes exercises problem-solving skills, affirms the value of internal experience, encourages communication and discourages avoidance and withdrawal.

Centre and Circumference: a collection of poems

$24.99 $19.99

by Howard F. Stein
ISBN: 978-1942431091

This book is a collection of poems that are authored by Howard F. Stein, PhD, an inter-disciplinarian and psychoanalytic/ anthropological/ humanistic poet and writer, who put the lens to life from three different positions: Love and Life, Time and Memories, Work and Society. The title, “Centre and Circumference,” comes from Percy Shelley’s 1821 essay, A Defence of Poetry. Shelley’s metaphor is how Howard Stein has come to imagine poetry – in fact all the arts. In his essay, Shelley (1821/1840) writes … “Poetry is at once the centre and circumference of knowledge; it is that which comprehends all science, and that to which all science must be referred. It is at the same time the root and blossom of all other systems of thought; it is that from which all spring, and that which adorns all; and that which, if blighted, denies the fruit and seed, and withholds from the barren world the nourishment and the succession of the scions of the tree of life. …Poetry enlarges the circumference of the imagination by replenishing it with thoughts of ever new delight, which have the power of attracting and assimilating to their own nature all other thoughts …” The author hopes that this collection enlarges the compass of the reader’s imagination, of his/her world, and of his/her engagement with it. The author has a further wish that dwells in the invisible bond between a poet and a reader. The book includes black and white reproductions of art by Sandra Indig. The incisive and comprehensive foreword is authored by Inna Rozentsvit.

Harry’s Dream

$24.99 $19.99

by Suzanne T. Saldarini
Illustrations by Simeone, Lou
Psychoanalytic Thought for Youth Series
ISBN: 9781942431015 (soft)

Over one hundred years ago, Freud showed us that dreams are over-determined. Events from the previous day, on-going projects and interests, conversations, childhood memories and feelings attached to all of these come together to form our night-time dramas. The same could be said about any invention, including this short story for young children. Harry’s Dream began with a real night-mare, was shaped by conversations, by interests and by Harry’s memories. Finally, it was determined by the commitment at ORI Academic Press to connect psychoanalytic concepts to ordinary experience. Harry’s Dream is Suzanne Saldarini’s second book for children published by the ORI Academic Press. Her first book, About Dreams, was nominated for a prestigious 2013 Gradiva® Award from the National Association for Advancement of Psychoanalysis. Both books are included in Psychoanalytic Thought for Youth series. Harry’s Dream is brief, vivid and, hopefully, meaningful to anyone who cares for pre-school children.

My Animal Alphabet: Paintings and Poems

$21.99 $17.59

by Linda Mia Turkel
Published by MindMend Publishing, an imprint of the ORI Academic Press
ISBN: 9780984870097 (soft)

Note from the author: There are two things that young children are especially drawn to ─ animals and the alphabet. So I thought I would combine them into a series that would reinforce the alphabet (that they so early learn) and animals (that they are inherently drawn to). Although these animals are recognizable many are somewhat impressionistic. I was careful to not include any “made up” animals such as “unicorn.” The alphabet, I felt, was a good structure to fit the animals into ─ since this combination of “alphabet” and “animal” can be essential for the child’s development with respect to learning (and even comfort) as they experience the world. Rhyming is a very inviting way to remember things, so I wrote a rhyming poem for each animal.

Oedipal Paradigms in Collision: An Emendation of a Piece of Freudian Canon

$49.99 $39.99

by Howard H. Covitz
ISBN: 9781942431046 (soft)

Howard Covitz, in this wonderfully scholarly book, turns his incisive and original readings of old texts, both Freudian and Biblical, into a refreshingly new understanding of the Oedipus Complex that was ahead of its time when first published in 1998, but is extremely timely today. Covitz argues that the Oedipus complex is not primarily about the internalization of a parental/societal superego to resolve a conflict over the child’s forbidden sexual desire and his or her fear of being punished for it; the traditional interpretation. Rather, it is much more importantly about the birth of genuine morality out of a conflict between – on the one hand – the child’s narcissistic demand to have his or her own way, imposing his or her own needs and desires on the parents without recognition or regard for their wishes or for anyone else’s, and – on the other hand – the child’s love for the parents and his or her growing awareness of and concern for their feelings, wishes, and needs, seeing them (and other people, generally) as separate individuals who, like the child, are inherently deserving of respect. Understood in this way, the Oedipal conflict is clearly universal, and it is pervasively apparent in the world today, where it remains largely unresolved in most of us, adults, most of the time.

Saturday Nights at Lafayette Grill: True Tales & Gossips of NY City Argentine Tango Scene

$29.99 $23.99

by Susan Kavaler-Adler
ISBN: 978-1-942431-07-7 (soft)

This book brings the reader into the center of a worldwide cultural craze and passion, as it has developed and thrived in New York City since 1985, when the Broadway show ‘Tango Argentino’ first came to town, followed by ‘Forever Tango.’

With a special dedication of the book and title to the Argentine tango cultural center formerly housed within a Greek restaurant, named ‘Lafayette Grill,’ this book offers 17 interviews with top Argentine tango professionals in NYC (all of whom frequented Lafayette Grill), who each speak of their Argentine tango dance and tango teaching philosophies; of their first interest in Argentine tango, and of their own development within the dance over time. Along with these psychological interviews, this book offers readers 19 anonymous essays, written by Argentine tango dancers, who contribute the main fabric of the social milieu of Argentine tango dancers gathered in the tango parties called milongas, within multiple dance studios and restaurants in NY City. These essays penetrate the internal life of the Argentine tango dancer, and therefore have a psychological focus. These essays also display for the reader the colorful and rich ambience of the Argentine tango world in NY City as a social and cultural environment.

Talking Colors: Seeing Words/Hearing Images

$24.99 $19.99

by Sandra Indig
ISBN: 978-1-942431-06-0 (soft)

This book is for those readers who have a strong interest in creativity and the creative process from the perspective of the artist/analyst. Wrapped in colors, lines, textures, and words is the fascinating, ambiguous, often mysterious story of a life told through images associated with words and words associated with images.

The collection draws from aesthetic, spiritual concerns and those of science and psychoanalysis. Implied, often veiled, ambiguous reference to numerous modalities of expression bring to the level of consciousness both personal and universal emotions often as not, hidden and unspoken. With deeply felt humility, Indig goes to the edge of mythic-poetic worlds and dares her readers to look into the abyss for darkly hidden jewels adorning the cloth of humanity.

The Compulsion to Create: Women Writers and Their Demon Lovers

$34.99 $27.99

by Susan Kavaler-Adler
Foreword by McDougal, Joyce
ISBN: 9780984870004 (soft)

The Compulsion to Create: Women Writers and Their Demon Lovers is a fascinating and informative psychological survey of women and the literature they create, especially as reflected by the lives and work of such luminaries as Charlotte Bronte, Emily Bronte, Emily Dickinson, Anais Nin, Sylvia Plath, and Edith Sitwell. The reader is treated to such issues as compulsion versus reparation, developmental mourning and creative-process reparation, creative women and the “internal father,” and the “demon-lover” theme as literary myth and psychodynamic complex. A highly recommended addition to women’s studies, literary studies, and psychological studies supplemental reading lists, “The Compulsion to Create” is original, revealing, insightful, challenging, at times iconoclastic, and always entertaining.
