DBT-Informed Art Therapy: Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and the Creative Process
English | September 21st, 2016 | ISBN: 1849057338 | 346 Pages | EPUB | 8.34 MB
Understand DBT-informed art therapy, and how to apply it to your practice. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) treats problems with emotion regulation, and is especially effective in treating chronic self-harming and suicidal behaviors associated with Borderline Personality Disorder. Combining the structure and skill development of DBT with the creativity and non-verbal communication of art therapy can be a significant advantage in treating patients who are resistant to talking therapy.
This book gives a comprehensive overview of the growing literature and research on DBT-informed art therapy, drawing upon the work of pioneers in the field to explain different types of DBT-informed art therapy and the 'Three Ms' at its core: Mindfulness, Metaphor and Mastery. It also includes creative visual exercises and activities for developing the skills of core mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and non-judgemental acceptance among clients.

Life History Evolution: A Biological Meta-Theory for the Social Sciences
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 407 Pages | ISBN : 3319901249 | 6.66 MB
The social sciences share a mission to shed light on human nature and society. However, there is no widely accepted meta-theory; no foundation from which variables can be linked, causally sequenced, or ultimately explained. This book advances "life history evolution" as the missing meta-theory for the social sciences. Originally a biological theory for the variation between species, research on life history evolution now encompasses psychological and sociological variation within the human species that has long been the stock and trade of social scientific study. The eighteen chapters of this book review six disciplines, eighteen authors, and eighty-two volumes published between 1734 and 2015-re-reading the texts in the light of life history evolution.

What Would Audrey Do?: Timeless Lessons for Living with Grace and Style
English | May 7th, 2015 | ISBN: 1592404286 | 284 Pages | EPUB | 1.02 MB
The author of the bestselling Audrey Style and Jackie Style offers a charming guide to modern living inspired by the impeccable example set by Audrey Hepburn. Audrey Hepburn epitomised grace and style, not only in her appearance but in her very essence. Whether in fashion, relationships, home life, or her work - both on screen and for UNICEF - no role model is more worthy of imitation.
So, who better to turn to when pondering the right thing to do in our complex, modern world? In an era fraught with self-interest, artifice and vulgarity, Audrey can teach us how to remain demure, sophisticated, loving and gorgeous, everyday. Drawing on examples from the actress's extraordinary life, this hugely enjoyable, beautifully-designed book offers advice on dating, seduction techniques and marriage from the woman who enjoyed romances with John F. Kennedy, William Holden and Albert Finney; tips on how to apply Audrey's style to twenty-first-century clothes, make-up and accessories; insights into raising children, taming husbands and achieving a work-life balance and lessons in philanthropy from the star who used her fame to help others long before Bono or Angelina. Indeed, everything one might need to survive in the modern world. So, in place of strife, just ask yourself: What would Audrey do?

Consumer Psychology: A Life Span Developmental Approach
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 361 Pages | ISBN : 331990910X | 4.26 MB
This book approaches consumer psychology from a unique perspective - it covers the entire lifespan, from birth to old age. Childhood and youth are not discussed as areas special, different and remote from the rest of consumer research but are integrated into our development as humans. Consumption is viewed as a process by groups and individuals with the cycle continuing through to disposal or ownership and possession.
The author discusses how people's natural lifespan influences their relationship to the things they own, how preferences are developed from childhood and how motivations for purchases change throughout their lives from childhood to old age. This book brings together the most recent findings and theories on child and youth consumption, including children's understanding of advertising and marketing, teen and youth identities and their consumption tastes. Moving through Erikson's life stages chapters continue on to adulthood, the mid-life 'crisis' and possessions and ownership in older consumers. This is a deeply interdisciplinary work that will be of interest to scholars across the fields of psychology, business and marketing, as well as to the more general consumer.

Death at Work: Existential and Psychosocial Perspectives on End-of-Life Care
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 344 Pages | ISBN : 331990325X | 4.02 MB
This book explores how, in encounters with the terminally ill and dying, there is something existentially at stake for the professional, not only the patient. It connects the professional and personal lives of the interviewees, a range of professionals working in palliative and intensive care. Kjetil Moen discusses how the inner and outer worlds, the psychic and the social, and the existential and the cultural, all inform professionals' experience of work at the boundary between life and death. Death at Work is written for an academic audience, but is accessible to and offers insights for practitioners in a variety of fields.
