The dream of pure freedom in the South Pacific islands has never died on the mainland; sometimes it's more of an ache than a dream. Over time and through the mill of popular culture, the dream has been distilled into two enduring images: the hula dancer and the tiki god. This book displays over 500 color images of collectible hula dancers and tiki gods with which readers can have a little exotic fun and maybe catch a tropical thrill along the way. The hula dance provided an escape in its original culture, and here the dancers are shown in sections devoted to flat images, three-dimensions, crank girls, and Hollywood's versions from the twentieth century. The tiki gods that 1960s surfers wore for luck around their necks may have deeper meanings as well, and became the most important symbol of cool adulthood that mainland youngsters could imagine. Here lamps, figures, posters, and souvenirs all come together for entertainment and enjoyment. All dreamers of tropical pleasures will covet copies of this book to linger over. And the values guide will bring them quickly and happily back to reality.

Intersubjective Processes and the Unconscious looks at how the minds of the therapist and the patient interact with each other in a profound and unconscious way: a concept first described by Freud.
This book expands Freud's ideas further and examines how these have been greatly elaborated by contributions from the Kleinian School as well as from the work of Bion.
It explores how, together, patient and therapist co-create a narrative through these unconscious intersubjective processes. Topics of discussion include: the unconscious dimensions of intersubjective processes an historical overview of Freudian, Kleinian and Bionian contributions an integrated theory of the nature of unconscious intersubjective processes the central importance of dreaming in intersubjective processes the clinical implications of this intersubjective model The author offers in-depth clinical examples and case vignettes to illustrate the application of these principles when working with trauma, countertransference dreams and supervision. As such, this book will be invaluable to all psychoanalysts and psychotherapists interested in the topic of intersubjectivity as well as those who want to learn more about the interactional dimensions of Freud, Klein and Bion.
