Présentation de l'éditeur

Living in the Borderland addresses the evolution of Western consciousness and describes the emergence of the ‘Borderland,' a spectrum of reality that is beyond the rational yet is palpable to an increasing number of individuals. Building on Jungian theory, Jerome Bernstein argues that a greater openness to transrational reality experienced by Borderland personalities allows new possibilities for understanding and healing confounding clinical and developmental enigmas.

There are many people whose experiences of reality is outside the mainstream of Western culture; often they see themselves as abnormal because they have no articulated frame of reference for their experience. The concept of the Borderland personality explains much of their experience.

In three sections, this book examines the psychological and clinical implications of the evolution of consciousness and looks at how the new Borderland consciousness bridges the mind-body divide. Subjects covered include:

· Genesis: Evolution of the Western Ego

· Transrational Data in a Western Clinical Context: Synchronicity

· Trauma and Borderland Transcendence

· Environmental Illness Complex

· Integration of Navajo and Western healing approaches for Borderland Personalities.

Living in the Borderland challenges the standard clinical model, which views normality as an absence of pathology and which equates normality with the rational. Jerome S. Bernstein describes how psychotherapy itself often contributes to the alienation of Borderland personalities by misperceiving the difference between the pathological and the sacred. The case studies included illustrate the potential this has for causing serious psychic and emotional damage to the patient.

This challenge to the orthodoxies and complacencies of Western medicine’s concept of pathology will interest Jungian Analysts, Psychotherapists, Psychiatrists and other physicians, as well as educators of children.

Jerome S. Bernstein is a Jungian Analyst in private practice in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Livng in the Borderland. Jerome S. Bernstein 11 janvier 2006
Par M. G. Grana - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
In his book Living in the Borderland, Jungian Analyst Jerome Bernstein provides a fascinating account of the development of the Western ego from an historical interpretation of the Bible down to our present post-Cold War environment. The author posits that this development has moved the Western psyche away from its roots in Nature into an ever more abstracted intellectual consciousness. As the human species approaches the very real potential for self-annihilation through nuclear assault and ultimate environmental degradation, an evolutionary shift in psychic consciousness has begun, a shift that appears in a growing number of individuals. In a Darwinian sense, it is an evolutionary manifestation of species survival. This shift is evidenced as the psyche's reconnection with Nature, to Nature in all its forms, animate and inanimate, that over the millennia the collective Western ego has neglected as it has developed increasingly toward abstraction of thought and the illusion of control. Through the years of his therapeutic practice Bernstein has seen many patients who are exhibiting this psychic shift. He calls these people Borderlanders, they live in a borderland between rational intellect and an emerging transrational consciousness.

For some Borderlanders, this awareness of the transrational as a dominant and controlling force in the psyche can be traumatic, not infrequently causing the individual to worry that he or she may be "crazy." Traditional psychological approaches to therapy often exacerbate this fear in that most therapists are unaware of the "normalcy" of this evolutionary shift in consciousness. They therefore tend to consider their Borderland patients as suffering from a psychic pathology. And herein is a major emphasis of this book: to alert psychological and medical practitioners as well as the patients themselves, that certain patients' experiences, while evidencing symptoms of psychic trauma, may not be pathological. The situation is often complicated, however, when a patient may evidence psychological illness that is genuinely symptomatic of traumatic experience, yet is unrelated to a patient's borderland consciousness. In this case it is the formidable task of the therapist to differentiate the pathological from the new evolutionary consciousness that is beginning to manifest.

The book is extremely well researched and thoroughly documented with personal testimonials, bibliographic references, and case studies, and contains an exhaustive bibliography. It is essential reading for all psychotherapists and medical practitioners and their patients, and is especially relevant to those suffering from or treating environmental illness. Individuals interested in Jungian psychology and early childhood educators who may be encountering this psychic phenomenon among children will find the guidance of this book invaluable.

Seminal Work 9 janvier 2006
Par Jennie Sherwin - Publié sur
Format: Broché
In this seminal work, Jerome Bernstein presents a highly literate account of the development of the Western ego and chronicles for the first time the stories of those individuals who are experiencing an evolutionary shift of consciousness that manifests itself in many ways, but particularly in receptivity to what he calls transrational reality and sensitivity to all things animate and, to the Western mind, inanimate. He establishes a link between this emerging consciousness and sensitivity to environmental toxins, capturing in graceful and compassionate language both the desperation of those who suffer from environmental illness and the frustration of those who valiantly seek ways to treat them. He differentiates strongly between those who live in the borderland and those who suffer from borderline personality disorder, suggesting therapeutic approaches based on clinical experience. He argues passionately for a new paradigm for the healing of trauma through a reconnecting of the Western medical model with a body-mind-spirit approach, most notably that of the Navajo medical model.

As someone who spent seven months in treatment for pesticide poisoning at an environmental clinic, I was blown away by the accuracy with which Mr. Bernstein portrayed the plight and the suffering of those who experience environmental illness as well as the approaches to treatment. As one who has experienced healing through a combination of allopathic and spiritual approaches, including antigen therapy, psychotherapy, energy medicine and Navajo ceremonials, I can testify to the power of the combined modalities. As a writer with one foot in the creative universe, I applaud the authenticity with which Mr. Bernstein describes the borderland.

A definite must read for clinicians, researchers, patients, and anyone interested in Jungian thought, transrational experience, and environmental illness.

"Tree Huggers," Read This... 16 octobre 2005
Par Joanna - Publié sur
Format: Broché
If you have ever been shamed, ridiculed or pathologized for feeling connected to nature, animals, tides, the sea creatures or to the rhythm of life (though intuitive dreams, psychic phenomena, etc.) YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK. A brilliant Jungian analyst explores the fascinaintg idea that these phenomena are not only not pathological, but in fact represent an evolutionary process by which our psyches (Self, Soul)are trying to right the lopsided Western, power-driven egoic approach to life that is, in fact, killing us.

A must read for therapists, ecologists, psychologists, people interested in transpersonal psycholgists and those of us who can "hear" the animals and nature as they cry out in agony.

Living in the Borderland. Jerome S. Bernstein 21 janvier 2006
Par David G. Barton - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is an important work, both in a psychological and cultural sense. Bernstein is writing about "Borderland" personalities and environmental illness but these two issues also relate to a sea change going on below the surface of the Western psyche. Bernstein is one of a very small number of people who is trying to track this sea change -- pointing us to its possibilities and its potential dangers. Living in the Borderland is a big picture book that dares to ask the really important cultural questions of our day.

Groundbreaking Work 6 janvier 2006
Par Mccullumsmith - Publié sur
Format: Broché
With this book Jerome Bernstein has provided clinicians and patients with an extremely valuable new approach to healing trauma that brings together elements from seemingly disparate cultural contexts. Bernstein's arguments on the evolution of the psyche resonate deeply, and he links these ideas with pratical approaches to healing patients who are viewed as treatment resistant by traditional western medicine. This book is a must read for any therapist, psychiatrist, or other clinician who wishes to broaden their understanding of the interaction between the psyche and somatic symptomatology.
