The vision in this book is to learn on ways of integrating "Environment-Communities-Development". In fact, as trends seem to show, it can be expected that in the future, major conflicts between communities around the world will likely arise from misuse of natural and environmental resources, and misguided development that do not serve the real human needs. That's why a conscious development as another approach to development is required. We believe this new concept of development will help find new ways of improving our communities and their development and environment.

The primary measure that is the first one, for comparing the stages of personality development, is the perception refinement. The more beautiful the understanding, the more attractive shades, and facets the person can see in any event. The rougher the perception, the less picky is this person. What is healthy for a person at the first stage of development, will seem rude (depending on the situation: silly, inappropriate, ineffective, too straightforward) to a more advanced person. And, in fact, everything indicated below is a little more detailed description of the perception process refining with the personality development transition from one stage to another. The second criterion for comparing stages of character development is far-sightedness or wisdom. The wiser the man, the more he filters the contents of own mind and is less receptive to rough impulses. Such a person knows that it is worth taking some patience today and working on himself, and the future won’t disappoint. On the contrary, a narrow-spirited man unreasonably wastes his energy and resources to get quick satisfaction, not thinking of the future. The third and, perhaps, the most curious criterion for comparing the stages of personality development is access to areas. This is expressed as permission of the city 'members' to stay in their society which lives by the appropriate official or privacy laws. The more delicate perception and the higher the stage of development are, the more refined and reasonable are the laws adopted by a person, and the stricter is his adherence to these rules. For example, if a person wants to be in close contact with peace-loving and sincere people, he is obliged to be honest and peaceful himself, and then this area will accept him.

The Origins and History of Consciousness

The Origins and History of Consciousness is an important and wide-ranging interpretation of the relations between psychology and mythology. Erich Neumann undertakes to show that the individual consciousness passes through the same archetypal stages of development that marked the history of human consciousness as a whole. He draws upon the full range of world myth in the illustration of his thesis, and his account makes unexpectedly fresh and lively reading in a field not always notable for these qualities. Neumann ends the work with a trenchant commentary on contemporary society.

The Conscience and Self-Conscious Emotions in Adolescence

An integrative approach

The consequences of apparent moral failings in an individual are something that can be seen frequently in the media and in everyday life. One issue that is rarely addressed in public discussion about someone’s ‘lack of conscience’ is any thought as to how the conscience actually functions. In The Conscience and Self-Conscious Emotions in Adolescence, Frans Schalkwijk presents a new definition of the conscience as a psychic function in which self-conscious emotions and empathy are dominant. Schalkwijk combines current scientific research into empathy, shame and guilt as well as his rich clinical experience to create a wealth of information for clinicians working with children and adolescents. This book is a superb guide for operationalizing the diagnostics of the conscience, presenting a developmental approach to the theory and diagnostics of the conscience and integrating psychoanalytic, cognitive behavioural, social, psychological and neurobiological theories. Research has shown that human behaviours are often enacted well below our potential cognitive level. In this book, a balance is found between affective and cognitive aspects of the conscience. Accessibly written and incorporating case studies and detailed notation throughout, this is a highly practical work ideal for psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, psychologists, students and professionals working with children, adolescents and adults.

Children's Dreaming and the Development of Consciousness

David Foulkes is one of the international leaders in the empirical study of children's dreaming, and a pioneer of the use of sleep labs research with children. In this book, which distills a lifetime of study, Foulkes shows that dreaming as we normally understand it - active stories in which the dreamer is an actor - appears relatively late in childhood. This true dreaming begins between the ages of 7 and 9. Although younger children do report dreams (often at the prompting of their eager parents), careful empirical study suggests that what the child calls dreams are almost certainly waking fantasies and confabulations. Laboratory studies show that preschoolers' REM sleep dreams usually consist of isolated static images - often of animals. Foulkes argues that the late development of narrative dreaming suggests an equally late development of waking reflective self-awareness.

While both positive and negative peer interactions have long been a focus of scientific interest, much less attention has been given to children who tend to refrain from interacting with peers. This volume brings together leading authorities to review progress in understanding the development, causes, and consequences of shyness and social withdrawal. Compelling topics include: The interplay of biological, psychological, family, and interpersonal processes in shyness and social withdrawal from infancy through adolescence. The impact on peer relationships and academic performance. Links among shyness, social withdrawal, and social anxiety disorder. The positive side of unsociability—when to 'leave children alone.' Implications for clinical practice and educational interventions.

Using 'Freud's Project for a scientific psychology' as a starting point, this book is a brilliant new approach that combines psychoanalytical research with neuroscience. Its aim is to to delineate a new psychological framework for mental health practitioners. The author throws light on the slow pace of brain development during childhood, grapples with both the question of evolutionary factors, and the infant's sensitivity and predisposition to build relationships within his environment. The book also broadens and highlights two key topics topics; the origin of language and the importance of introjective-projective modulation in verbal communication.
