When Shannon Moroney married Jason Staples in October 2005, she had no idea that her happy life as a newlywed was about to come crashing down around her. One month after her wedding, a police officer arrived at her door with the news that her husband had been arrested and charged with the brutal sexual assault and kidnapping of two women, taking them to the house he shared with Shannon to commit the acts of violence. In the aftermath of the crimes, Shannon dealt with a heavy burden of grief, the stress and publicity of a major criminal investigation, and the painful stigma of guilt by association - all the while attempting to understand what had made Jason commit such violence. In this intimate and gripping journey into the human heart, Shannon reveals the far-reaching impact of Jason's crimes and the agonizing choices faced by the loved ones of offenders. She also tells the powerful story of how she made the amazing transition from being a member of the 'trauma club' to completely rebuilding her life. This is an impassioned, harrowing and ultimately hopeful story of one woman's pursuit of justice, forgiveness and healing.

In addition, there is world wide gambling that is enjoyed by vacationers or via the internet (extremely addictive). Several gamblers can control their gambling and can stop.

Do you know me, or am I a stranger within? When the Lord asked me this question, it changed my life forever. I heard Christians say there was nothing like intimacy with the Lord. I didn’t understand what that meant. I asked spiritually mature Christians to instruct me in the ways of Lord so that I might know Him. They consistently said pray, study the Word, be obedient to the Word, and live a sanctified life. Thus began my pursuit of intimacy with the Lord. I made mistakes during my pursuit; I tried to know Christ through other Christians—big mistake. I decided to pray and study the Word daily, obey His commands, and live a holy life. Out of that obedience came a longing to know Christ and to make Him known to others. God has a place within us where we are to meet with Him daily through His Word and prayer. Humanity has tried to fill that place with drugs, alcohol, porn, women, men, etc.—failing to realize the Lord created that special place just for Himself. The road to knowing the Lord is a journey that must be traveled alone. This book can help you find keys and principles to assist you. Stranger Within seeks to help those who want to look like Jesus, who want to walk in the truth of God’s Word, and who want minister in the power of God’s Spirit.

This book is a cross-cultural, gendered study of both self and curriculum. Initiating a conversation between and among Michel Foucault, Confucius, and Julia Kristeva, it searches for a new (third) cultural and psychic space of transformation and creativity. Weaving together philosophy, psychoanalysis, and autobiography through lived experiences of curriculum, it calls for new configurations of subjectivity at the intersection of culture and gender, through the meeting between selfhood and the human psyche, in the dynamics of the semiotic and the symbolic, and through the interaction between the Western subject and the Chinese self. These multiple layers of inquiry provide unique perspectives for readers who are interested in curriculum theory, feminist analysis, philosophy of education, or East/West dialogue.

The truth remains: men, women, and children are plunging deeper into the entanglement of a deplorable condition. The crisis of identity plagues our world like never before. When a person's basic sense of being is altered, he or she tends to gravitate in the direction that seems to offer a deeper sense of self-worth. You are a unique individual, possessing unique gifts, talents, and abilities. You cannot be duplicated! That is why attempting to be someone else only leaves you feeling inadequate. Your identity is what makes 'you' you, and not someone else. Ignorance is no bliss! What you do not know can hinder you. In the same token, if you do not know who you are, you will stumble in your attempt to fulfill your God-given purpose. In this book, we deal with the importance of manifesting our destiny through grabbing a hold of biblical insights as to who we are in Christ. Why? The reason is 'Mankind has an identity ordained in Christ. This identity once embraced in its totality determines the course of destiny experienced.' It is time to live on purpose! There are countless millions waiting for you to show up and deliver what God has invested in you. The principles discussed in this book have been demonstrated in our lives for years. This is a book from the heart. We believe that as you embrace the principles therein, illumination will come to you relative to your specific condition. With the help of the Spirit of God, you will know what adjustments to make to stand your ground as an ambassador in the Kingdom of God. It is our prayer that you will understand clearly that your identity is suspended between your origin and your destiny. What you identify as your origin affects your perception of self. Why? 'You are a byproduct of the one who made you.' The originator of a thing determines its intrinsic worth. The origin also spells out the outcome of the product. We trust that as you read this book you will grasp that your Creator, God, did a good job in making you. — Kayode and Olumide Taiwo

The figure of the stranger is in serious need of revision, as is our understanding of the society against which the stranger is projected. Under conditions of globalization, inside/outside markers have been eroded and conventional indicators of 'we-ness' are no longer reliable. We now live in a generalized state of strangeness, one consequence of globalization: we no longer know where our community ends and another one begins. In such circumstances it is often the case that neighbours are the nearest strangers. Strangeness occurs when global consciousness outstrips global connectivity and this means that we need to rethink some core elements of globalization theory. Under conditions of strangeness the stranger is a 'here today, gone tomorrow' figure. This book identifies the cosmopolitan stranger as the most significant contemporary figure of the stranger, one adept at negotiating the 'confined spaces' of globalization in order to promote new forms of social solidarity and connect with distant others.

Adult patients exhibit core symptoms: voices in the head and ongoing blank spells or periods of missing time. The voices are the different parts of the personality talking to one another and to the main, presenting part of the person who comes for treatment. Periods of missing time occur when aspects of the personality take turns being in control of the body and memory barriers are erected between them. Patients also experience symptoms such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse, sleep disorders, sexual dysfunction, psychosomatic symptoms, and symptoms that mimic schizophrenia. MPD patients have experienced the most extreme childhood trauma of any diagnostic group and therefore exhibit the psychobiology and psychopathology of trauma to an extreme degree. The good news is that once diagnosed, the MPD patient can be brought back to health.This book is important for all mental health professionals, and also for the general reader interested in psychiatric phenomena.
