If you can’t trust those in charge, who can you trust?
From government to business, banks to media, trust in institutions is at an all-time low. But this isn’t the age of distrust–far from it.
In this revolutionary book, world-renowned trust expert Rachel Botsman reveals that we are at the tipping point of one of the biggest social transformations in human history–with fundamental consequences for everyone. A new world order is emerging: we might have lost faith in institutions and leaders, but millions of people rent their homes to total strangers, exchange digital currencies, or find themselves trusting a bot. This is the age of “distributed trust,” a paradigm shift driven by innovative technologies that are rewriting the rules of an all-too-human relationship.
If we are to benefit from this radical shift, we must understand the mechanics of how trust is built, managed, lost, and repaired in the digital age. In the first book to explain this new world, Botsman provides a detailed map of this uncharted landscape–and explores what’s next for humanity.

The Power of the Adolescent Brain :
Strategies for Teaching Middle and High School Students

English | 2016 | ISBN: 1416621873 | 215 Pages | PDF | 12 MB

Moody. Reckless. Impractical. Insecure. Distracted. These are all words commonly used to describe adolescents. But what if we recast these traits in a positive light? Teens possess insight, passion, idealism, sensitivity, and creativity in abundance–all qualities that can make a significant positive contribution to society.
In this thought-provoking book, Thomas Armstrong looks at the power and promise of the teenage brain from an empathetic, strength-based perspective—and describes what middle and high school educators can do to make the most of their students’ potential.
Thoroughly grounded in current neuroscience research, the book explains what we know about how the adolescent brain works and proposes eight essential instructional elements that will help students develop the ability to think, make healthy choices, regulate their emotions, handle social conflict, consolidate their identities, and learn enough about the world to move into adulthood with dignity and grace.
Armstrong provides practical strategies and real-life examples from schools that illustrate these eight key practices in action. In addition, you’ll find a glossary of brain terms, a selection of brain-friendly lesson plans across the content areas, and a list of resources to support and extend the book’s ideas and practices.
There is a colossal mismatch between how the adolescent brain has evolved over the millennia and the passive, rote learning experiences that are all too common in today’s test-obsessed educational climate. See the amazing difference—in school and beyond—when you use the insights from this book to help students tap into the power of their changing brains.

Thinking Diagrams :
Processing and Connecting Experiences, Facts, and Ideas

English | 2016 | ISBN: 1475828683 | 149 Pages | PDF | 2.64 MB

Higher-order thinking questions (and their answers) are considered by many to be the holy grail of teaching. Teachers know when students “get it”, but the question remains “How do you teach students to think explicitly and intentionally?” This book uses a series of diagrams to make thinking explicit by using students’ personal experiences as the foundation for their thinking. Thinking Diagrams will help the reader move beyond understanding what metacognition is to teaching students how to understand their thinking in visual form. This book is filled with contemporary and practical insights regarding helping teachers of all levels foster classrooms rich in student thinking, creativity, and learning.

Comparative Psychology for Clinical Psychologists and Therapists :
What Animal Behavior Can Tell Us About Human Psychology

English | 2016 | ISBN: 1849057435 | 255 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Featuring animal research, from pigeons to primates, this book explains how comparative psychology can enrich our insights into human psychological processes.
Each chapter covers a different clinical disorder or problem commonly encountered by clinical psychologists and therapists, including depression, autism and social communication disorders, substance abuse and obesity, and reviews related research into animal behaviors. Revealing how animal models can grant psychologists a better understanding of the motivations and causes for behaviors that are impossible or challenging to study in humans, the authors suggest interventions, drawn from research findings in comparative psychology, that can effectively address psychological disorders in humans.
