Many thousands of adults have grown up emotionally trapped by the burden of guilt and self-disgust that is the legacy of child abuse. They are ongoing victims, unable to form mature sexual relationships or to function as adults. Parks’ Inner Child Therapy was developed to help victims of sexual abuse to regain emotional health.
Penny Parks describes her techniques, how she gets through to the hurt child at the adult’s core. By re-enacting childhood memories, facing their experience and receiving the reassurance that they need the pain of abuse can be desensitised. By venting suppressed anger, guilt and bitterness and coming to understand what has happened the adult can gradually grow and come to terms with themselves and their sexuality.
Penny Parks was abused as a child and began her struggle for recovery in her twenties when she developed Parks Inner Child Therapy.

A seminal book that placed the study of human behaviour in a new perspective, demolished many schools of psychology and brought about a return to the dynamic view of human personality.
It invites the reader to go on a course of self-therapy designed to develop an awareness of the self and a growth of the personality. Employing the wide-ranging techniques of the Gestalt approach to heighten sensory perception and motoric behaviour and to deepen the capacity to enjoy interpersonal relationships, it is a practical insight into one of the most important psychotherapeutic techniques. Starting with the premise that experience begins at the contact boundary it examines the nature of that experience and the various obstacles that can stand in the way of growth.
Gestalt therapy is explained in detail, with its basis in the methods of psychotherapy from Freud to the present outlined. First published in 1951, Gestalt Therapy has remained constantly in print ever since and is regarded as one of the most important studies of self-awareness available.
Frederick Perls originated and developed Gestalt Therapy at Esalen Institute, California. Paul Goodman was a lay psychotherapist at the New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy.

Even in the degradation and misery of Dachau concentration camp Viktor Frankl retained the belief that the most important freedom of all is the freedom to determine one’s own spiritual well-being. He wrote the international bestseller Man’s Search for Meaning as a result of that experience while in The Doctor and the Soul Dr Frankl revolutionised psychotherapy with his theory of logotherapy. Viktor Frankl’s work has being described as “the most important contributions in the field of psychotherapy since the days of Freud, Adler and Jung.”
In The Doctor and the Soul Dr Frankl maintains that the individual’s most important need is to find meaning in life and the frustration of this need results in neurosis, suffering and despair. A doctor’s work lies in finding personal meaning in a patient’s life, no matter how dismal the circumstances of the life.
Dr Viktor Frankl was the leading figure of the Third Viennese School of Psychotherapy. He was born in Vienna in 1905 and on being freed from Dachau concentration camp found that his family had been almost entirely wiped out in the Holocaust. He went on to hold professorships at universities around the world, including Harvard University and the University of Vienna.
“Viktor Frankl survived three years in the concentration camps of Dachau and Auschwitz. On the basis of his experiences there, he went on to found a new school of psychotherapy, Logotherapy.”
Jonathan Sacks, ‘The Times’
“His most important book… gives an existential and spiritual dimension to the work of psychotherapy.”
“Viktor Frankl’s writings are an inspiration… We learn most from those who suffer most.”

Each development of artificial light, from stone lamps to the lightbulb, along with its companion invention, electricity, has transformed human civilisation and shaped the way we live. The implications of providing light has shaped historical eras: crude lamps and tallow candles constricted waking hours and their meagre illumination restricted daily life, oil lamps created the crazed hunting of whales for their oil while gaslight helped to create leisure hours in the evening and allowed the emergence of vibrant street life in cities.
Edison’s invention of the lightbulb seemed to produce light that required no human effort or cost and yet, as Jane Brox shows, the environmental cost of that system of lighting is still with us. With the spread of light pollution the majority of the Earth’s population can no longer see the Milky Way in the night sky, Jane Brox brilliantly explores how the technology behind artificial light has been the catalyst for industrialisation and consumerism yet it has also led to a disconnection from the natural rhythms of the earth.
In the tradition of Mark Kurlansky’s Cod in its reach and scope, Brilliant is a compelling story of how human lives have been changed by light, and timely questions about how the light of the future will continue to shape our lives. Bringing the increasingly important issue of light pollution to the fore, Brilliant is full of the voices of those whose lives were revolutionised by artificial light over the centuries, and with stunning insights into how science has directed human history and will continue to do so in the future.
Jane Brox has been a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. She is currently the Coastal Studies Scholar at Bowdoin College, Maine.
“An illuminating study… Fascinating… Brox’s concern for the local, the everyday, the rural and the poor gives her book a universal appeal.”
“Few people today appreciate the impact the incandescent lamp made following its invention in 1879. In Brilliant, Jane Brox captures the before-and-after. Beginning with lamps carved from limestone 40,000 years ago, she expertly traces the tortuous route to artificial light.”
“Jane Brox’s extraordinary history of artificial light is aptly named. It’s not just a record of technological innovation; it’s a great human fable about how we went from desperately fending off darkness to searching for the last vestiges of true night in a light-bedazzled world.“
“Like Edison’s incandescent bulb… Brox’s history is warm and illuminating.”
