Hal et Sidra Stone


Hal Stone (Ph.D) et Sidra Stone (Ph.D) ont développé la théorie des Subpersonnalités et de l'Ego Conscient et la méthode de Voice Dialogue.
Cette méthode permet de développer une personnalité libre des automatismes de l'ego ordinaire, encore appelé ego fonctionnel.

C'est le point de départ d'une possibilité de choix par rapport aux conditionnements familiaux et culturels. La relation qu'elle soit thérapeutique, personnelle, intra-personnelle, professionnelle ou familiale est le champ d'application du Voice Dialogue.



La vision qui sous-tend le Voice Dialogue est une référence créative permanente pour tout thérapeute. Dans cet art difficile d'amener l'autre à se réconcilier avec lui-même, avec sa vie et son environnement, les connaissances de la Psychologie des Subpersonnalités et du Voice Dialogue donnent un appui solide. Tant en thérapie individuelle qu'en thérapie de groupe, ils mettent à la disposition du thérapeute des outils qui permettent l'ouverture à l'autre. La vision de la psyché qu'il propose permet d'accompagner chaque individu dans ses chemins, sans jugements et sans perdre ses valeurs propres.

Le Voice Dialogue permet de développer sa sensibilité énergétique. Or toute communication avant d'être verbale est d'abord énergétique. Le concept d'ego conscient est unique et nouveau. C'est un nouveau paradigme qui appartient tout autant à la spiritualité qu'à la psychologie, il est moteur dans un processus d'indiduation et de réactualisation de la personnalité. Son développement permet de disposer d'un réel choix dans la vie et non d'être soumis à des comportements automatiques et conditionnés.

Biographies

Hal et Sidra Stone sont partenaires aussi bien dans leur mariage que dans leur travail, avec à eux deux un total de quatre-vingt-dix années de pratique clinique. Ils sont à l’origine du Voice Dialogue et de la psychologie des subpersonnalités, et ils ont écrit sept livres qui ont été traduits en six langues. Cinq d’entre eux ont été écrits par le couple : Embracing Our Selves (Accueillir tous nos « je »), Embracing Each Other (S'accueillir l'un l'autre), Embracing Your Inner Critic (Le Critique Intérieur), You Don’t Have to Write a Book ! (non traduit) et Partnering (Vivre en couple : rester amants, devenir partenaires). Hal a écrit seul Embracing Heaven and Earth (non traduit), l’histoire de son voyage personnel ; quand à Sidra, elle a rédigé The Shadow King (Le Patriarche Intérieur), un livre sur le rôle caché du patriarche intérieur dans la vie des femmes. Leur travail est aussi disponible en cassettes audio, en vidéo et dans un documentaire qui présente de façon passionnante les dernières évolutions de leur enseignement, sous forme de douze cassettes vidéo et huit cassettes audio.

Ces vingt dernières années, Hal et Sidra ont enseigné ensemble le Voice Dialogue, le rôle des subpersonnalités dans les relations et la psychologie de l’ego conscient, aussi bien aux États-Unis que dans différents pays du monde. Ce sont des enseignants inspirés et inspirants, pleins d’humour et d’enthousiasme, qui amènent une approche très pratique et très enracinée de la spiritualité et du processus de transformation.

Hal et Sidra sont tous deux des psychologues cliniques qui ont de nombreuses années d’expérience professionnelle en tant que psychothérapeutes. Hal a reçu également une formation d’analyste jungien et a fondé The Center for the Healing Arts à Los Angeles, au début des années soixante-dix. Ce centre était un prototype d’un centre de santé holistique, et l’un des premiers à mettre l’accent sur la maladie en tant que chemin de croissance spirituelle. Durant ces années, Sidra dirigeait Hamburger Home, un centre résidentiel de traitement thérapeutique pour adolescentes.

Dans leur vie personnelle, Hal et Sidra ont suivi de nombreux chemins, dans des endroits différents et variés. Hal est né à Detroit, Sidra à Brooklyn, mais ils ont passé la plus grande partie de leur vie adulte à Los Angeles. Ils vivent actuellement dans la région de Mendocino, sur la côte enveloppée de brumes du nord de la Californie. À eux deux, ils ont cinq enfants adultes et quatre petits-enfants.




Hal Stone, Ph.D.

Hal Stone did his undergraduate studies at UCLA, receiving his Ph.D. in psychology in 1953, and he has been a practicing therapist, teacher and writer since that time. He served as a psychologist in the U.S. Army from 1953 to 1957, attaining the rank of Captain. Following his army service, Hal began private practice and entered the training program of the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles which he completed in 1961. He practiced as an analyst through the 1960’s and early 1970’s. He used this early Jungian training and his fascination with mythology, dreams and fairy tales to guide him along an ever-deepening path of inner exploration. During the sixties, he also became certified as a member of the American Board of Examiners in Professional Psychology (ABEPP), served as a training and teaching consultant to the Department of Psychiatry and Psychology at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, and was one the coordinators of the humanities program of the new California School of Professional Psychology. The late 1960’s marked a time of searching and exploration into new modes of transformational work and Hal helped to coordinate a series of programs through the University of California at Berkeley Extension program that brought many of these new developments to a larger audience.

His interest in these new modalities eventually led to his separation from the Jung Institute in 1970 and his resignation as an analyst in 1975. Dr. Stone established the pioneering Center for the Healing Arts, perhaps the first Holistic Health Training Center in the United States, in 1973. It was the dawn of a new age in psychology and alternative medicine. His ground-breaking programs were an inspiration for much of the psycho-spiritual work with illness that followed and he served as Executive Director of the Center until his resignation in 1979. He then re-entered private practice, and began a more active collaboration with his wife, Dr. Sidra Stone.

Three years later, they began travelling, teaching and training people in their work in the U.S. and abroad and they have continued in this work to the present time. In the early 1970’s, Hal and Sidra had developed Voice Dialogue as a method for working with sub-personalities. They married in 1977. Through both their personal relationship and their professional collaboration, their work evolved over the next quarter of a century into a complex methodology for working with selves and a complete theoretical system which they called the Psychology of Selves. Hal’s first book, Embracing Heaven and Earth, is the story of his personal journey. His other books, Embracing Our Selves, Embracing Each Other, Embracing Your Inner Critic, You Don’t Have to Write a Book, and Partnering were co-authored with Sidra. In addition to these books, their work is presented in a series of 24 audiocassette tapes that deal with a variety of topics. A documentary of 12 videotapes and 8 audiocassette tapes summarizes their work with Voice Dialogue, relationship, and the Psychology of Selves. Now, much of their teaching is done at Thera, their home in Mendocino County on the north coast of California. Here they conduct workshops, do some private consultations, and write.


Hal et Sidra Stone

They have five children between them. Hal’s son, Dr. Joshua David Stone, is a well known author and teacher in the ascension movement and his daughter, Judith Tamar Stone, is one of the foremost Voice Dialogue teachers. Hal and Sidra also have two cats, two step cats, a herd of deer, and a variety of relatively friendly wildlife. Sadly enough, the animals, so far, have shown little interest in either their theories or their methodology.



Sidra L. Stone, Ph.D.

Sidra Levi Stone was born in Brooklyn, New York. She grew up in a working class neighborhood during World War II imbued with the ideals of that era and the expectation that she would make some sort of contribution to the world. Sidra's experience as a State Scholarship student at Barnard College was extremely influential in her development as an independent woman. At Barnard, even in the nineteen-fifties, women were encouraged to attend graduate school, earn advanced degrees and prepare for a profession. She received her B.A. with honors from Barnard in 1957 and, in September of that year, married and moved to Baltimore, Maryland where she began her Ph.D. studies at the University of Maryland. Sidra moved to Washington, D.C. in 1960, completed her Ph.D. in 1962, became a community mental health clinical psychologist, and lived the excitement of the Camelot years. Dr. Stone (at that time Dr. Winkelman) returned to New York, worked for the Veterans Administration as a Clinical Psychologist and gave birth to her first daughter, Elizabeth.


After the birth of her second daughter, Claudia, she affiliated as a psychotherapist with the Lincoln Center for Psychotherapy so that she could practice part-time as a psychotherapist and enjoy motherhood as well. In 1967, during the "Summer of Love", Sidra moved to Los Angeles with her family. She continued her private practice and, in 1968, became the psychological consultant to Hamburger Home, a home for teenaged girls. In 1971 she gave birth to her third daughter, Recha, and in 1972 became the Executive Director of Hamburger Home. With much enthusiasm, Sidra turned the home into a full-service residential treatment center for acting out adolescent girls, introducing holistic treatment techniques to this very difficult yet exciting population. She set up a therapy program combining behavior modification techniques with intensive individual and group psychotherapy that was based upon psychoanalytic principles. She enriched the program by adding an on-grounds high school, an art therapist, a class in creative writing, theater games, yoga, camping experiences in the California wilderness areas, attention to nutritional aspects of lifestyle, and athletic activities. Sidra left Hamburger Home in 1979 to resume full time private practice and begin a more active collaboration with Hal. This collaboration has been extremely creative, both personally and professionally. Hal and Sidra’s work has evolved from their relationship and their professional experiences as therapists. Their relationship, in turn, has evolved as a result of their work! It has been an exciting journey and a romantic 28-year marriage.


Sidra and Hal co-authored Embracing Our Selves, Embracing Each Other, Embracing Your Inner Critic, You Don’t Have to Write a Book, and Partnering.. They also have chapters in three anthologies: Reclaiming the Inner Child, edited by Jeremiah Abrams, Meeting the Shadow edited by Connie Zweig and Jeremiah Abrams, and Gratitude: A Way of Life by Louise L. Hay and Friends. Audiocassettes, videos, and a complete teaching documentary round out the presentation of their joint work. A fascination with women’s issues and the role of the Inner Patriarch in women’s psychology led Sidra to write her book, The Shadow King: The Invisible Force that Holds Women Back.

Sidra has always been an avid traveler (and snorkeler). She and Hal love traveling the world together seeing new sights, meeting new people, and teaching their work. But she also enjoys her home (complete with wildlife) on the foggy, magical Mendocino coast and her family. Her three daughters have followed three distinctly different paths: Dr. Elizabeth Winkelman-Matazzoni is a clinical psychologist, Dr. Claudia Sadoff is an international economist, and Dr. Recha Winkelman is a radiologist. Their mother thinks that they - and her four grandchildren - are all delicious.
