Cinema and Life Development: Healing Lives and Training Therapists

Greenwood Publishing Group, 2004 - 139 páginas

Peake uses prevailing and emerging models of life-span development along with examples from Cinema to animate psychological understanding and application.

The use of film offers powerful opportunities for anecdotes, clinical applications, and examples of life stories drawn from popular and lesser-known cinema. The addition of movies as metaphors make the material accessible to lay, student, and professional readers. Drawn from numerous workshops and symposia using this material, Peake finds this emphasis breathes life into teaching, negotiating, and growing from new perspectives.

Página 37 - In my craft or sullen art Exercised in the still night When only the moon rages And the lovers lie abed With all their griefs in their arms, I labour by singing light Not for ambition or bread Or the strut and trade of charms On the ivory stages But for the common wages Of their most secret heart. Not for the proud man apart From the raging moon I write On these spindrift pages...
Página 50 - Nothing that is worth doing can be achieved in our lifetime; therefore we must be saved by hope. Nothing which is true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore we must be saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore we are saved by love.
Página 49 - It strikes us when our disgust for our own being, our indifference, our weakness, our hostility, and our lack of direction and composure have become intolerable to us. It strikes us when, year after year, the longed-for perfection of life does not appear, when the old compulsions reign within us as they have for decades, when despair destroys all joy and courage. Sometimes at that moment a wave of Light breaks into our darkness, and it is as though a voice were saying: "You are accepted.

Página 30 - Isn't it queer: there are only two or three human stories, and they go on repeating themselves as fiercely as if they had never happened before; like the larks in this country, that have been singing the same five notes over for thousands of years.
