    Another Interesting Issue

    I found this issue of Recovering The Self to be just as interesting (if not more) as the first issue. It has a great selection of book and film reviews, as well as interesting articles on abuse recovery and stress management. I particularly enjoyed the "veterans" article. Very interesting!!! I highly recommend this issue of RTS.

    This journal (Vol.1, No.1) encompasses themes full of hope, suffering, forgiveness, and peace; all subconsciously demonstrative in execution toward the development of a new substantial self- there are no self- help steps here. I must preface by stating that I came across Recovering the Self for the sheer purpose of reviewing it only to be face to face with my own self awareness that self victimization is as acute as any other oppression. I was feeling more or less self-assured before reading this journal when I started reading a story about forgiveness aloud to my mother and found myself choked up unable to confidently finish. This journal mainly addresses the severity of life difficulty with such encumbrances as the loss of a child, suffering from breast or prostate cancer, homosexuality; not the everyday woes of “normalcy” (and I say that in a truly literal manner). What I love about these journals is the compilation of multiple genres: non-fiction, poetry, fiction, film (in the 2012 edition) etc. making it easy for readers of many followings to connect and recover their own self even if by surprise.

    I would hope that each professional or individual who is looking at making us healthy will have this in their library and use it as homework to start making healthy choices and recovery

    Reviewed by Carol Hoyer, PhD, for Reader Views (04/10)

    At one time or another during our lifetime, we all will experience traumatic events that will have a serious impact on how we choose to live our lives. Through voices of several contributors, this volume addresses topics such as abuse, neglect, death and dying, as well as substance abuse. What we choose to do about this is another story. Each contributor honestly addresses some of these issues that have impacted them, or someone they loved, and what they did to start healing themselves.

    There wasn't one story or poem that stood out, as they all addressed issues we encounter daily. In each article I could see a little of myself and felt like the authors were reading my mind. Even as a professional in the psychology field, I got an "ah ha" from each reading. I particularly liked that these inspiring stories were not "you poor thing," or "I told you so." Each related events, how they handled them and how they made changes. Changes start out slowly; denial is such a big factor in how individuals handle events in their lives. Do others want us to change or keep us in the downward spiral?

    Frankly, I never knew this Journal existed. I would hope that each professional or individual who is looking at making us healthy will have this in their library and use it as homework to start making healthy choices and recovery. I highly recommend "Recovering The Self: A Journal of Hope and Healing (Vol. II, No. 2).

    An Excellent Journal for Recovery

    Recovering the Self: A Journal
    of Hope and Healing
    Volume II, Number 1
    January 2010
    Edited by: Ernest Dempsey
    Published by: Loving Healing Press
    ISBN: 978-1-932690-83-5

    Recovering the Self: A Journal of Hope and Healing is the title of this quarterly journal created to explore the themes of recovery and healing through the use of various media. Each quarterly journal includes poetry, memoir, essays, fiction, psycho-education, humor and reviews. This specific issue covers topics that include recovery from an eating disorder, parenting, culture and ethnicity, abuse recovery, stress management, AIDS orphans and more. The contributors to this issue have a wide variety of life experience, education, outlooks and beliefs.

    I found each offering to be heartfelt, and all contained useful advice and insight. I learned something from each of the contributors, and my time reading was well and usefully spent. Submissions for future quarterly journals are accepted on an ongoing basis; and I look forward to reading future volumes of this well written journal. Yearly subscriptions are available, as well as purchase of individual issues.

    I think anyone with interest in psychology or simply any aspect of recovery would benefit from the variety of talented contributors. Something I find especially attractive about this journal is that it is not written with an eye towards just the professional reader, but anyone who is undergoing recovery from a trauma or impacted family members, coworkers or friends. They would gain useful insight and understanding.

    An excellent anthology dealing with recovery

    Recovering The Self:
    A Journal of Hope and Healing (Vol. 1, No.1)
    Author: Ernest Dempsey (Editor)
    Publisher: Loving Healing Press
    ISBN: 978-1-932690-09-5

    This is the premier issue of Loving Healing Press' quarterly journal "Recovering The Self, A Journal of Hope and Healing. This excellent publication contains a wide variety of articles, poems, fiction, humor, book reviews and book excerpts. This information is provided by numerous well known authorities in the fields of psychology, metaphysics, social work and counseling.

    Specific works in the this volume include:

    Victims No More by Barbara Sinor, PhD; an article to inspire the reader to let go of past programming and thought processes and recreate life to reach the successes desired.

    Frank A. Gerbode, M.D., shares his professional insight into the theory of resilience and why some people seem to be more resilient when faced with trauma and/or stress. He discusses the use of Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) to work through the situation and build resilience.

    An article written by Sam Vaknin (author of 10 books about personality disorders and abuse in relationships) is entitled Sex, Gender and Personality Disorders. It takes an interesting look at gender identity and sexual preferences and whether thay have a specific genetic predisposition, along with a revealing look at the gender disparity found in diagnosing personality disorders. Interesting and insightful, with excellent quotes from key literature..

    Dr. Janet Hall contributes the article "Helping Children Traumatized by Disaster" a well-done source of information to help children dealing with a variety of traumatic experiences.

    I look forward to reading additional volumes of Recovering The Self. This anthology truly offers much useful and thought-provoking information.

    Something for everyone!

    Reviewed by Paige Lovitt for Reader Views

    I always have to have something available for me to read. If I find myself with nothing to do and nothing to read, I feel lost. Sometimes this forces me to purchase a magazine that would be the paper equivalent of junk food. Then I feel guilty. With "Recovering the Self," I am pleased to report that no feelings of guilt were induced while reading. Instead, I found myself relishing each page of the journal.

    "Recovering the Self" is full of articles written by inspiring authors about a variety of topics. Many of these topics involve people taking back their power to recover from issues such as child abuse, anorexia, depression, and cancer. These are just to name a few. There is also poetry, fictional stories, book reviews and movie reviews. I found everything printed in this journal to be of value.

    I also find it inspiring to read about people who become empowered to change their lives or the lives of those around them. I like that each article has information listed about the author and a website to follow up on for more information about the topic. This allows readers to delve further into information that they would like to pursue. For myself, I now have a list of websites to refer to, and a list of reading materials to follow up on.

    "Recovering the Self: A Journal of Hope and Healing (Vol. II, No.1)" is highly recommended reading. It can be read and enjoyed in one sitting, however, for people who do not have a lot of time to read, it will be perfect for them to be able to bookmark and read the articles as time permits. Enjoy.
