Ego states are the parts of our personality that cause us to act different ways in different situations. Ego state theory, derived from the ego psychology of Paul Federn and recent developments in the area of dissociation, links normal personality functioning with its extremes, such as found in dissociative identity disorder. Integrating psychoanalytic practice and hypnoanalytic techniques, it encourages discovery and exploration of covert ego states, thereby effecting behavior change. This psychodynamic therapy fulfills the need for an efficient approach that achieves the goals of psychoanalysis, including the lifting of repressions, the working through of resistances, the securing of insight, and the development of maturity and long-lasting stability in personality structure. Although ego state therapy has a solid psychoanalytic rationale, it achieves significant, permanent results in a comparatively short time. With clear language and illustrative case extracts, the recognized originators of ego state therapy explain this fascinating theory and how to put it into practice. They also present objective follow-up research studies comparing effectiveness of this approach with others and address the current controversy over false memories and the implications for forensic practice. Here is an innovative perspective on personality theory and therapy that psychoanalysts, hypnotherapists, researchers, and MPD/DID therapists will find intriguing.
Author: Ragnar Axelsson, Mary Ellen Mark
Raised on an isolated farm in southern Iceland, Ragnar Axelsson (born 1958) became captivated early on by the brutal beauty of the North Atlantic and the delicate interactions between its inhabitants and their environment. Born of that fascination, "Faces of the North," first published in a small print run in 2004, established Axelsson as one of the leading documentary photographers of our time. It contained about 100 lushly austere, powerful images of Greenland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands, taken over two decades. Long out of print, "Faces of the North" is now republished in a special anniversary edition that echoes the format of Axelsson's latest publications, "Last Days of the Arctic" and "Behind the Mountains." Containing the original selection of photographs documenting the vanishing lifestyles of the North Atlantic, the new edition also includes previously unpublished photos, Axelsson's personal accounts of the journeys which led to the images' creation and the artist's sketches of the photographs, drawn nightly as he traveled through the Arctic. In the 2004 edition of "Faces of the North," Axelsson collected the images of farmers, hunters and fishermen in the Arctic and the Atlantic that he became best known for; in the 2014 edition, his oeuvre comes full circle, as he looks back upon the foundation of his photographic passion and career.
