CROOKED RIVER RANCH, Ore., Aug. 31, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- It has been decades since Dr. Arthur Janov pioneered Primal Therapy, which is a psychotherapy that helps patients find their real needs and feelings as they experience primal pain. Primal pain is pain that results from the needs of a fetus, a child or adolescent not being met, pain that is too traumatic to experience. The pain, therefore, is suppressed into the subconscious. Sadly, however, Primal Therapy still has not become accepted generally as the therapy of choice. As a result, most people are unaware of how primal pain adversely affects their mental, emotional and physical health. In the new book The Decline & Fall of Practically Everyone, author Victor G. Novander, Jr. shares his views and analysis in his quest to make people aware of their primal pain and how to resolve it.
The Decline & Fall of Practically Everyone brings to readers a concise history of humanity. It looks closely at the role primal pain has played throughout human history in the devolution of original consciousness into unconscious self-awareness. The book shows that people's inner and outer worlds mirror each other, which means that the status of our internal world is projected outwardly and becomes the status of our external world. Because of this, an analysis of, for example, the history of religion reveals what has been our internal history, and the same thing holds true for the analysis of political history.
One aspect of the book that will fascinate readers is the offering of a perspective on human history from the point of view of primal consciousness, which makes this newsworthy. Furthermore, Novander's book explains in great detail how primal pain results in insatiable wants being substituted for basic needs and how a compulsion for power compensates for the child's helplessness in getting his basic needs met.
Intelligent and compelling, The Decline & Fall of Practically Everyone is bound to motivate people to become primal persons, which would interest a lot of readers, especially parents who are concerned over their children's nurturance. Even if someone decides not to become a primal person, an intellectual understanding of the dynamics of how primal pain affects in an unhealthy way how one thinks, feels, and acts will still be beneficial.
