Psy-Complex in Question: Critical Review in Psychology, Psychoanalysis and Social Theory by Ian Parker

English | January 26th, 2018 | ASIN: B078KK3LS8, ISBN: 1785357492 | 184 pages | EPUB | 1.88 MB

Psy-Complex in Question traces a series of key debates in and against the psy-complex through critical reviews of twenty-five key texts over the last twenty-five years, with an emphasis on recent critical psychological, psychoanalytic and critical social theory contributions to how we think about human agency and subjectivity.
The reviews together set out the unfolding context for the debate, and situate the texts under discussion in the cross-cutting debates that define critical psychology today. It also provides an accessible introduction to how psychoanalysis and social theory, with a particular focus on the work of Jacques Lacan and Slavoj Žižek, bears upon work carried out by a new generation of researchers. Ian Parker’s book is written from the perspective of a critical insider to the discipline of psychology, psychoanalysis and social theory, and it will serve as a primer for those new to the ideas searching for compass points and radical arguments, as well as examples of how to write and how not to write a book review.

Dr. David Stoop, Dr. Jan Stoop, “SMART Love: How Improving Your Emotional Intelligence Will Transform Your Marriage”

ISBN: 080072755X | 2017 | EPUB | 208 pages | 4 MB

The principles of emotional intelligence have long been applied to the business world with remarkable results. But what would happen if they were applied to that most important of relationships–marriage?
SMART Love is a system for understanding emotions–both your own and your spouse’s–managing those emotions, and walking hand in hand through those situations when emotions run high. Drs. David and Jan Stoop break the book into five sections:
Self-awareness of your emotions
Managing your emotions
Accountability to yourself, your spouse, and others
Reading the other person’s emotions
Together in the land of emotions
A SMART Love inventory helps readers see where they are strong and where they need improvement, and each section includes action steps couples can take to implement what they’ve learned. Perfect for couples’ counseling, small groups, and anyone who wants to connect with their spouse more deeply.

The Most Important Year: Pre-Kindergarten and the Future of Our Children by Suzanne Bouffard

English | September 5th, 2017 | ASIN: B06X8YCNZV, ISBN: 0399184945 | 272 pages | EPUB | 0.87 MB

An eye-opening look inside pre-K in America and what it will take to give all children the best start in school possible.
At the heart of this groundbreaking book are two urgent questions: What do our young children need in the earliest years of school, and how do we ensure that they all get it? Cutting-edge research has proven that early childhood education is crucial for all children to gain the academic and emotional skills they need to succeed later in life.
Children who attend quality pre-K programs have a host of positive outcomes including better language, literacy, problem-solving and math skills down the line, and they have a leg up on what appears to be the most essential skill to develop at age four: strong self-control. But even with this overwhelming evidence, early childhood education is at a crossroads in America. We know that children can and do benefit, but we also know that too many of our littlest learners don’t get that chance—millions of parents can’t find spots for their children, or their preschoolers end up in poor quality programs.
With engrossing storytelling, journalist Suzanne Bouffard takes us inside some of the country’s best pre-K classrooms to reveal the sometimes surprising ingredients that make them work—and to understand why some programs are doing the opposite of what is best for children. It also chronicles the stories of families and teachers from many backgrounds as they struggle to give their children a good start in school.
This book is a call to arms when we are at a crucial moment, and perhaps on the verge of a missed opportunity: We now have the means and the will to have universal pre-kindergarten, but we are also in grave danger of not getting it right.

A ground-breaking series of practices and personal routines to help you make better choices.
Every day we are bombarded with decisions, from what we watch to how we take our coffee, from whether to change jobs or put a deposit on a house. So many decisions, in fact, that we are getting worse at making them.
Making better choices starts with a sensible balance of four things: Sleep, Hydration, Exercise and Diet – your SHED. Taking control of your SHED will help you to:
• Stop answering emails in bed
• Finish what you start
• Stop agreeing to things that you don’t really want to
• Be resilient in the face of setbacks
• Improve your response to stress and worry
• Be in those moments that matter
Making better decisions is the key to feeling braver, overcoming obstacles, and finding the energy and determination to create the life you want. Based on ten years of coaching high performers and full of step-by-step advice, The SHED Method will change the way you think about life, work and relationships.
