This moving and compelling tour de force will not leave a single reader unaffected, as every individual who reads this book will embark on a personal journey of struggle and inner confrontation. The author acts as the readers personal guide, examining society s most private basic assumptions, as well as life s most fundamental values and doctrines. Several of the issues revealed, include: Have our most natural and passionate understandings of masculinity and femininity been entirely swapped in today s world for a life that is politically correct and numb? Is secular Jewry as unfettered and liberal as they claim and are the religious truly following Judaism and not Christianity? How is it that Peace Now and the religious settlers are actually moving towards the same goal, despite the apparent polarity of opinions? And which side is making the wrong assumptions, thereby delaying the common objective? What does science, if anything, have to do with Judaism, and why is it that almost all those that ask questions about the relationship between the two are missing the point? Why is love and hate the perfect partners, and how is it possible to accomplish love through hate? After exploring the root causes of the various personal and societal trends within the Jewish world today, Keren presents a fresh entry into a Judaism that has been forgotten by most, religious and secular alike. For those courageous enough to enter, the author offers a brave, passionate and embracing new Jewish world and the opportunity for a time to change. This book pulls no punches and not many sacred cows emerge unscathed. Warning: Not for the timid."

This is the first comprehensive assessment of pension systems in the Middle East and North Africa. While other regionsCentral Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America, in particularhave been actively introducing reforms to their pension systems, Middle East and North African countries have lagged behind. This is explained, in part, by the common belief that, because demographics remain favorablethe countries are young and the labor force is expanding rapidlyfinancial problems are far in the future; as a result, pension reform does not have to be a priority in the broader policy agenda.However, the authors show that aging is not the only factor behind a financial crisis; the problem is the generosity of the current schemes. Moreover, badly designed benefit formulas and eligibility conditions introduce unnecessary economic distortions and make the systems vulnerable to adverse distributional transfers. The book does not present a general model that could solve the problems of all pension systems in Middle East and North Africa countries. Instead the authors focus on outlining a framework for guiding discussions on pension reform and making objective policy choices.This assessment will be useful for policy makers and government officials involved in pension reform in the Middle East and North Africa region.

Tracking Transformations in Psychoanalysis - The Three-Level Model
Author: Marina Altmann de Litvan
Publisher: Karnac Books
How can we, analysts, evaluate whether analysis is generating transformations in our patients? The IPA Project Committee on Clinical Observation and Testing offers a tool: The Three-Level Model for Observing Patient Transformations (3-LM); a guide for refining, conceptualizing, and systematizing clinical observations about patient transformations. It seeks to enhance clinical observations, making them more accurate and more useful for theory testing and theory building through a systematic analysis of clinical material.Time for Change: Tracking Transformations in Psychoanalysis - The Three-Level Model focuses on the question of how to observe changes in psychoanalysis. It presents the model and the outcome of having worked with the 3-LM tool, which has been applied to adult patients, adolescents and children, as well as in analytic training. The 3-LM goes from clinic to theory, from implicit to explicit theory, from unquestioned hypotheses to reviewed hypotheses enriched by the work on the clinical material after its discussion by several participants with different perspectives. Firstly, the 3-LM seeks to make a careful characterization of the patient and his/her problems and capacities when (s)he enters analysis. Then, it observes later moments of his/her treatment and the positive or negative changes that have occurred during treatment, what has not changed, the relevance of changes, and how changes are explained. Reports are elaborated in each group which state the convergences and divergences that emerged during the group discussion. Approximately 700 analysts from different parts of the world have participated in these clinical observation groups. They have found that this tool has proved useful and friendly for analysts, for it rescues and re-values the richness of the clinical experience between analyst and patient. It also allows us analysts to exercise our abilities and clinical sharpness as well as acquiring precision when communicating our work. It provides us with one way to monitor our work in a more subtle and meticulous way, offering a second look at the material for the benefit of both analyst and patient.

Re-Visioning Your Call

Many professional ministers struggle at some point with the desire to pursue another career. For those at such a place on their journey, this book poses questions, offers practical suggestions gathered from other ministers who have traveled this path, and shares insights from the authors' own experiences of career change. The authors emphasize two principles. First, entertaining the possibility of leaving professional ministry is not to be condemned or viewed as a sign of failure; rather, it should be accepted as part of the spiritual journey. Second, a new career apart from the institutional church does not mean one is leaving the ministry, but simply that one is changing the mode of expressing that ministry.
