The Development of My Ideas about Psychoanalysis

Slice ePub May 22, 2014
<p>ROY SCHAFER</p><p>Where to begin? Perhaps with the history of the Jews in Eastern Europe and then my parents’ wretched childhoods and emigration to the United States, carrying with them poverty-tainted ideals of learning and little emotional preparation for gratifying family life; this leading to a childhood that featured more than enough bad times emotionally and an adolescence overshadowed by the sense of futility and pessimism engendered in the 1930s by the Great Depression, the rise of fascism, and the massive discrimination against and persecution of Jews - all of which together fostered the deep feelings, “What’s wrong with people?” and “What’s wrong with me?” Under the influence of these feelings I adopted the role of cautious observer, outsider, and interpreter of what people said and did as well as doubter of the meaning and validity of my own ideas and feelings. It was in this soil that there grew my lifelong interest in interpretation, and it is the intensity of this interest that I consider the red thread running through my personal life, my occupational skills, and the development of my ideas about psychoanalysis.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/398933-changing-ideas-in-a-changing-world-the-revolution-in-psychoanalysis-essays-in-honour-of-arnold-cooper">See more</a>

CHAPTER NINE: Shadowlands

Slice ePub May 23, 2014
<p>This was the first dream of a 38-year-old man who presented with panic attacks and depression. Bob appeared modestly disheveled, and was nursing a beerbelly. He oscillated in his demeanor from shy and retiring to overconfident and overbearing. He had been referred to therapy because of difficulties with unexpressed anger. He reported his initial dream approximately one year into the treatment.</p><p>I am at college but I am trying to go home. I get on the wrong train and wind up in a black neighborhood. A black man approaches me and begins to take small things out of my pockets. An elderly black man advises me to say the word “ebonic” and that it will help me avoid being robbed. At first I ignore him, but then I take his advice and it works. Next, a large crowd of angry black people surrounds me but I am afraid to antagonize them with the magical word. They take my wallet and my power tools but somehow I get them back.</p><p> <i>Associations</i> </p><p>Bob was a defensive and frequently argumentative patient who expressed little interest in his dreams. He offered the following associations.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/299203-the-herald-dream-an-approach-to-the-initial-dream-in-psychotherapy">See more</a>

9. SQL Functions and Extensions

Source: Using SQLite
Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>SQLite allows a developer to expand the SQL environment by creating custom SQL functions. Although these functions are used in SQL statements, the code to implement the function is written in C.</p><p>SQLite supports three kinds of custom functions. Simple <em>scalar functions</em> are the first type. These take some set of parameters and return a single value. An example would be the built-in function <code>abs()</code>, which takes a single numeric parameter and returns the absolute value of that number.</p><p>The second type of function is an <em>aggregate function</em>, or <em>aggregator</em>. These are SQL functions, such as <code>sum()</code> or <code>avg()</code>, that are used in conjunction with <code>GROUP BY</code> clauses to summarize or otherwise aggregate a series of values together into a final result.</p><p>The last type of custom function is a <em>collation</em>. Collations are used to define a custom sort orders for an index or an <code>ORDER BY</code> clause. Conceptually, collation functions are quite simple: they take two text values and return a greater than, less than, or equal status. In practice, collations can become quite complex, especially when dealing with natural language strings.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362338-using-sqlite">See more</a>

16. Conclusion: Carrying on the Conversation

Slice ePub May 28, 2014
<p>Programming is a unique behavior, no matter how much we torture metaphors to compare it to other activities and professions. It combines engineering and craft in highly coupled ways, requiring good developers to exhibit a wide variety of skills: analytical thinking; extreme attention to detail on multiple levels and aesthetics; an awareness of macro and micro level concerns simultaneously; and a keen, fine-grained understanding of the subject matter were writing software to assist. Ironically, developers have to understand business processes at a much lower level than the actual practitioners of the business. Business people can use their experience to make on-the-fly decisions when novel situations pop up; we must encode everything in algorithms and explicit behavior.</p><p>The original vision for <em>The Productive Programmer</em> was to provide a long list of recipes for productivity. It morphed into a two-part book, where the first part deals with the mechanics of productivity and the second concentrates on the practices of productivity as a developer. In its final form, this book still contains a fair number of recipes. But following recipes leaves you with tasty dishes, but no capability to create your own recipes. Identifying the mechanical productivity principles (acceleration, focus, automation, and canonicality) provided a nomenclature for recognizing new techniques that I never thought about. In essence, I wanted to create a cookbook that also shows you how to create your own recipes.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362759-the-productive-programmer">See more</a>
