“Soul is personal and unique, grounded in the depths of individual experience. Spirit is transcendent and all embracing” (Bolman & Deal, 2011, Prelude, para. 6). This statement assisted me in identifying that the desired global outcome starts with the personal experience of the soul. The book develops four characteristics that contribute to a spiritual personal leadership practice.

Raw, powerful, real, healing, and love are just a few terms that may be used to describe Glenn Gannon’s memoir Miracle Man: From Homeless to Hollywood. The memoir explores universal themes such as relationships, family, religion, power (abuse of), addiction, community, isolation, and triumph in the face of adversity. The themes that struck me not only as a person but as a studier of psychology and criminal justice were: power and abuse of it, addiction, community, and isolation. This essay will serve as a personal response to Glenn Gannon’s memoir. Sir John Dalberg-Acton once stated “Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely.” The Catholic church for the longest time has ruled over Ireland.
Despite JB expressing his dislike of being placed in seclusion, nursing and medical staff agreed JB’s capacity to make an informed autonomous decision was impaired due to his current mental distress. Roberts (2004) states that the paternalism in mental health is rationalized through the concept that mental illness can inhibit a persons’ competency and ability to act autonomously in the governance of their care and therefore principles of beneficence and non-maleficence must be introduced to ensure that person receives adequate care. Prinsen & van Delden (2009) also argue that coercive measures such as seclusion can be necessary in reclaiming personal autonomy and control. However this paternalistic viewpoint of overruling a patient’s autonomy is arguable especially if a person is deemed incompetent due to their mental illness. Szasz believed mental illness was mythical and the introduction of a diagnosis was merely to label social deviancy from social norms.
Hermann Hesse highlights important moments on Siddhartha’s spiritual journey and his real life by utilizing symbolism, repetition, and tone in the novel. One could say that both Siddhartha and Hesse were selfish and ungrateful, but in order for one to prosper, their inner self has to first bloom. For this reason, Siddhartha and Hesse had to take time away from their respected life’s to understand the genuine meaning of life. More importantly, this novel served as way for Hesse, the author to vent and express his feelings. Through a fictional story and character, Hesse empathized real life events he once encountered.
Countertransference is present whenever a therapist brings in their own experiences to the extent they lose perspective of client. In countertransference therapist may act overprotective in fear of opening their own wounds, takes out a bad mood on client, shares too many stories about themselves, offer sympathy instead of just empathy, issues judgements related to their personal perspective not clients, example a therapist going through a divorce so he or she makes negative comments about their spouse when client is telling a story of his. There is always a level of transference and countertransference it could be positive or
Although both novels are about a dystopian showing corrupt societies both use different ways to represent the same idea one surpasses the other. The novel 1984 is the dystopian tale of the century it contains literary merit that is still being recognized to this day despite being written over 50 years ago. Authors use dystopian literature as a way to speak up and criticize the world they live in. It shows the reader how the idea of a perfect world is not obtainable and how it can always take a turn for the worst. In both novels we dive deep into one main or central character 's life and explore their journey through their society.
Even though many divergent psychodynamic theories exist, they all stress unconscious motivations and desires, in addition to the importance of childhood experiences in shaping their personalities. Freud also proposed there were ways that we dealt with those theories called defense mechanisms. He believed we must learn to deal with the anxiety that comes from sources in the external world and conflict within one’s own mind. In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, Freud established a method that he called psychoanalysis and he used it to treat mental disorders. He shaped his theory of psychoanalysis by observing his patients.
Thoughts and ideas, either salubrious or deleterious, constantly swarm the human mind. At one point, our thoughts reinforce our spiritual and worldly beliefs; at other times, our thoughts vanquish our life values, tarnishing our personalities. Emily Dickinson addresses changing, ambiguous mental states in her poem “There’s a certain Slant of Light”, describing her personal rise and falls while coping with depression. To convey this theme, Dickinson relies on a single literary device: juxtaposition. Through contrasting definitions of light and spirituality, Dickinson illuminates how depression affects the various mental states, creating a warped outlook on life.
The popular literary texts often showed a “theological bias”, suggesting that some spiritual consolation could follow physical deprivation. Contemporary scientific works that studied and made various developments in the fields of physiology and psychology paid attention to “variation and aberration within human perceptual systems”. There was an attempt to make generalisations about the ‘normal’ functioning of the senses (154). This attitude was duly mirrored in the representation of ‘disabled’ characters in the contemporary English novels. For example, we may mention the diminutive persons of The Marchioness in Dickens’s The Old
