Book excerpt: In the course of a long career Colin Murray Parkes, one of the most important and influential psychiatrists working in the field of bereavement and loss, has produced a body of work which can be considered truly ground-breaking. His early studies involved working alongside John Bowlby in the development of attachment theory and led to his pioneering work on the Harvard Bereavement Project in the USA and at the new St Christopher's Hospice in Britain. Parkes focussed on two psychological processes, grief, which is the painful search for a lost person or object of attachment, and transition, which is the process of changing the assumptive world in ways that ensure that nothing worthwhile need be completely lost. Out of the struggle to resolve the conflict between holding on and letting go of the old assumptions there gradually emerges a new and more mature model of the world. These ideas throw light on a wide range of life change events and have proved useful to people faced with bereavement, physical disabilities, dying, disasters and even terrorist attacks. In recent years he has supported humanitarian efforts in countries including Rwanda, India and Japan. Parkes’ career has spanned several decades and touched countless lives. In The Price of Love, Parkes presents papers which span the full extent of his career, covering and linking together our understanding of the five major areas of his work: - Love and grief; - Crisis, trauma and transition; - Death and dying; - Disasters; - War and terrorism: breaking the cycle. The papers included here have been carefully selected and annotated to show how Parkes’ thinking has developed during a career as researcher, practitioner and educator. In each section of the book psychological and social causes are paired with consequences and interventions (both preventive and therapeutic) and explored from Western and cross-cultural perspectives, all with Parkes’ customary clarity and compassion. This unique collection of papers will prove invaluable to psychologists, psychiatrists, palliative care staff, counsellors and students, as well as those studying international conflict and working with the bereaved.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Love’s Great Price is the story of two families who collided, wrestled, got knocked down, stood up, faced each other, loved each other, and made the best of what God had blessed them with. Born with a proverbial silver spoon in her mouth, Crystal Cummings had wanted for very little during her growing-up years. But life as she knew it came to a grinding halt the day her parents died in a plane crash in Italy—followed closely by a series of unstoppable events orchestrated by God to remake her, restore her, and redeem her: A handsome surgeon comes to town—pursued by a half-brother who wants him dead; A young girl’s life is forfeited in a hit and run mishap; An ex-employee comes to the rescue—eight hours after he’d been canned; An unwed mother becomes part of the family ... Come with me on this journey of twists and turns. Witness the drama, the heartache, the joy, as these lives are melded together in a true expression of the high price people are willing to pay for unconditional love.

Download or read book Prayer for the Day Volume II written by BBC Radio 4 and published by Watkins Media Limited. This book was released on 2016-10-18 with total page 400 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A follow-on to the highly successful Prayer for the Day Volume I, this second volume brings together 365 selected readings from the much-loved, long-running series on BBC Radio 4. The programme, which has been broadcast daily at 5:43am for several decades, and continues to attract over half a million dedicated listeners, comprises a short 2-minute reflection to start your day. These artfully combine traditional forms of prayer and reflection, from a variety of religions and denominations, with contemporary issues and themes that are often relevant to the date on which the programme is broadcast. In keeping with the theme of 'Prayer for the Day', there are 365 reflections in the book, from a vast range of the eminent religious figures and broadcasters who have contributed to the programme over the years. There will be a foreword by a prominent figure in the faith community, a short profile of each contributor and an index of contributors. To emphasise the point that the reflections can be used daily, they are ordered by date (i.e. 1st January, 2nd January etc), and each entry is selected on the basis of it being as date-specific as possible. The date of broadcast is underneath each entry, and dates are also marked at the top corners of each page so they can be found easily. The spacious design includes page openers for each month with simple line illustrations. Prayer for the Day Volume II is a beautiful and inspirational addition to any bedside table, with religious meditations that both participate in the ecumenical spirit of the 21st century and equip you perfectly for each day's journey.
