    Title: Brains the Mind as Matter
    Author: KWINT MARIUS & WINGATE RICHARD

    The brain is a unique and enigmatic organ. It cannot be transplanted, and is one of the most complex entities in the known universe. Unusually, this book asks not what our brains do for us, but what we have done to brains, following the long quest to manipulate and decipher this most exceptional of human organs. Brains explores the ways that we have sought to understand and classify the brain over the centuries. It delves into the eerie world of brain collecting: the practice of storing and cataloguing brains -- including those of Albert Einstein, the notorious murderer Edward H Ruloff and pioneering feminist Helen Gardner -- as well as addressing the sinister practices involving brains that took place during the Third Reich period.Lavishly illustrated, the book includes an array of fascinating images -- from Leonardo da Vinci's painstaking drawings of the dissected brain to visceral photography of brain collections and real brains, as well as work from contemporary artists such as Corinne Day and Helen Pynor. This is accompanied by illuminating and accessible commentary from neuroscientist Richard Wingate and art historian Marius Kwint, explaining how humans have imagined, interacted and tried to come to terms with this infinitely mysterious organ.

    Title: Breaking the Patterns of Depression
    Author: YAPKO MICHAEL

    Twenty to thirty million Americans suffer from some form of diagnosable depression, and their ranks are growing. Psychologist Michael D. Yapko explains that in order to find relief, more than the current episode of depression must be examined. InBreaking the Patterns of Depression,he presents skills that enable readers to understand and ultimately avert depression's recurring cycles. Focusing on future prevention as well as initial treatment, the book includes over one hundred structured activities to help sufferers learn the skills necessary to become and remain depression-free. Breaking the Patterns of Depressionbegins by translating the clinical literature on psychotherapy and antidepressant medication into language that can be used to enhance an understanding of depression, and to personalize individual cures. Yapko uses a conversational, anecdotal tone that encourages readers to take an active approach to helping themselves. Special sections entitled ""Learn by Doing"" and ""Shifting Perspectives"" help develop the skills necessary to manage difficult experiences. Readers learn how to solve problems effectively, anticipate the likely consequences of their actions, think and act in a direct, goal-oriented fashion, balance different areas of their lives, and use self-knowledge to stay out of harmful situations. More realistic and helpful than other depression-management books on the market,Breaking the Patterns of Depressiondefines what causes depression and, best of all, clarifies what can be done about it. With this knowledge in hand, readers can control their depression, rather than having depression control them.

    Capacity to Care: Gender & Ethical Subjectivity
    ISBN: 9780415399685
    Title: Capacity to Care: Gender & Ethical Subjectivity
    Author: HOLLWAY WENDY


    Wendy Hollway explores a subject that is largely absent from the topical literature on care. Humans are not born with a capacity to care, and this volume explores how this capacity is achieved through the experiences of primary care, gender development and later, parenting.


    In this book, the author addresses the assumption that the capacity to care is innate. She argues that key processes in the early development of babies and young children create the capability for individuals to care, with a focus on the role of intersubjective experience and parent-child relations. The Capacity to Care also explores the controversial belief that women are better at caring than men and questions whether this is likely to change with contemporary shifts in parenting and gender relations. Similarly, the sensitive domain of the quality of care and how to consider whether care has broken down are also debated, alongside a consideration of what constitutes a good enough family.


    The Capacity to Care provides a unique theorization of the nature of selfhood, drawing on developmental and object relations psychoanalysis, as well as philosophical and feminist literatures. It will be of relevance to social scientists studying gender development, gender relations and the family as well as those interested in the ethics of care debate.

    The modern world can be a dangerous place, filled with fast cars, smart phones, drugs and extreme sports. Meanwhile, we humans are as fragile as ever. In fact, after a century of lengthening life span and a decline in injuries and accidental deaths, avoidable life-threatening accidents are on the rise again. The question is - why?Steve Casner has devoted his career to studying the psychology of safety, and he knows better than most that there's not a safety warning we won't ignore, or a fool-proof device we can't turn into an implement of disaster.Careful! is a user-guide to our injury-prone minds. It will help us understand why we behave in such contradictory ways by, for example, insisting on fat-free salad dressing but then habitually texting while driving. Casner explains the psychological traps that can lead us to the scene of an accident. Based on years of research and understanding of human behaviour learnt as a research psychologist at NASA, Casner shows how and when injuries happen, so that we learn what we should really be worrying about. Careful! will help keep our fingers attached in the kitchen, our kids afloat at the pool and teenagers safe behind the wheel. It will show us all the ways we can take control of our own safety and get through the day in one piece.

    Title: Chasing the Scream: the First & Last Days of the War on Drugs
    Author: HARI JOHANN


    It is now one hundred years since drugs were first banned in the United States. On the eve of this centenary, journalist Johann Hari set off on an epic three-year, thirty-thousand-mile journey into the war on drugs. What he found is that more and more people all over the world have begun to recognize three startling truths: Drugs are not what we think they are. Addiction is not what we think it is. And the drug war has very different motives to the ones we have seen on our TV screens for so long.

    In Chasing the Scream, Hari reveals his discoveries entirely through the stories of people across the world whose lives have been transformed by this war. They range from a transsexual crack dealer in Brooklyn searching for her mother, to a teenage hit-man in Mexico searching for a way out. It begins with Hari's discovery that at the birth of the drug war, Billie Holiday was stalked and killed by the man who launched this crusade--and it ends with the story of a brave doctor who has led his country to decriminalize every drug, from cannabis to crack, with remarkable results.

    Chasing the Scream lays bare what we really have been chasing in our century of drug war--in our hunger for drugs, and in our attempt to destroy them. This book will challenge and change how you think about one of the most controversial--and consequential--questions of our time.

    Author: NAKAZAWA DONNA JACKSON

    The emotional trauma we suffer as children not only shapes our emotional lives as adults but also affects our physical health and overall well-being. Scientists now know on a biochemical level exactly how parents' chronic fights, divorce, death in the family, being bullied or hazed, and growing up with a hypercritical, alcoholic, or mentally ill parent can leave permanent, physical "fingerprints" on our brains. When we as children encounter sudden or chronic adversity, excessive stress hormones cause powerful changes in the body, altering our body chemistry. The developing immune system and brain react to this chemical barrage by permanently resetting our stress response to "high," which in turn can have a devastating impact on our mental and physical health. Donna Jackson Nakazawa shares stories from people who have recognized and overcome their adverse experiences, shows why some children are more immune to stress than others, and explains why women are at particular risk. Groundbreaking in its research and inspiring in its clarity, Childhood Disrupted explains how you can reset your biology-and help your loved ones find ways to heal.

    What if everything we think we know about how the world works our ideas of love, education, spirituality, work, happiness, and love are based on Brules (bullsh*t rules) that get passed from generation to generation and are long past their expiration date?

    This book teaches you to think like some of the greatest non-conformist minds of our era, to question, challenge, hack, and create new rules for YOUR life so you can define success on your own terms.

    "The Code of the Extraordinary Mind, "a "New York Times "bestseller, is a blueprint of laws to break us free from the shackles of an ordinary life. It makes a case that everything we know about the world is shaped by conditioning and habit. And thus, most people live their lives based on limiting rules and outdated beliefs about pretty much everything love, work, money, parenting, sex, health, and more which they inherit and pass on from generation to generation.

    Title: Coercive Control
    Author: STARK EVAN

    One of the most important books ever written on domestic violence, Coercive Control breaks through entrenched views of physical abuse that have ultimately failed to protect women. Evan Stark, founder of one of America's first battered women's shelters, shows how "domestic violence" is neither primarily domestic nor necessarily violent, but a pattern of controlling behaviors more akin to terrorism and hostage-taking. Drawing on court records, interviews, and FBI statistics, Stark details coercive strategies that men use to deny women their very personhood, from "beeper games" to food logs to micromanaging dress, speech, sexual activity, and work. Stark urges us to move beyond the injury model and focus on the real victimization that allows men to violate women's human rights with impunity. Provocative and brilliantly argued, Coercive Control reframes abuse as a liberty crime rather than a crime of assault and points the way to bringing "real" equality for women in line with their formal rights to personhood and citizenship, freedom and safety.

    Title: Commonsense Rebellion Taking Back Your Life from Drugs, Shrinks, Corporations, & a World Gone Crazy
    Author: LEVINE BRUCE E.

    In recent years the mental health industry has been attacked for the invalidity of its illnesses, the unreliability of its diagnoses, the dangers of its treatments, and its corruption by drug companies. Commonsense Rebellion integrates those critiques and goes further.Nearly 1 in 4 American adults take psychiatric drugs, and Ritalin production has increased 800 percent since 1990. Yet the mental health industry laments the fact that two-thirds of us with diagnosable mental disorders do not seek treatment. This book argues that "institutional mental health's" ever-increasing diseases, disorders, and drugs have diverted us from examining an important rebellion against an increasingly impersonal and coercive "institutional society" which worships speed, power, and technology. This has created fantastic wealth - at least for some - but its disregard for human autonomy, community, and diversity has come with a cost. Depression has reportedly increased tenfold since 1900, and suicide levels for teenage boys have tripled since 1960. Have human genetics and serotonin levels changed that much, or has society?

    Author: LINDEN DAVID J

    From the New York Times bestselling author comes a "hugely entertaining" (NPR.org) look at vice and virtue through cutting-edge science.
    As he did in his award-winning bookThe Accidental Mind, David J. Linden - highly regarded neuroscientist, professor, and writer - weaves empirical science with entertaining anecdotes to explain how the gamut of behaviors that give us a buzz actually operates. The Compass of Pleasure makes clear why drugs like nicotine and heroin are addictive while LSD is not, how fast food restaurants ensure that diners will eat more, why some people cannot resist the appeal of a new sexual encounter, and much more. Provocative and illuminating, this is a radically new and thorough look at the desires that define us.

    Title: Compassionate Mind
    Author: GILBERT PAUL

    Developing our sense of compassion can affect many areas of our lives, in particular our relationships with other people. In his revelatory new book, newly available in paperback, Professor Paul Gilbert offers an appealing alternative to the traditional Western view, which can perceive compassion as a sign of weakness and instead encourage self-criticism and a hard-nosed drive to achieve. Scientific evidence has demonstrated, however, that compassion towards oneself and others, particularly when we are feeling stressed, can lead to an increased sense of happiness and well-being. His invaluable and insightful guide provides a new understanding of why our natural emotions can make life difficult for us, and how we can work with them rather than against them. . An important and practical book on the new 'Compassion Focused Therapy', increasingly popular among UK therapists . Based on evolutionary research and scientific studies of how the brain processes emotional information . Includes basic mind-training exercises to enhance creativity plus compassion's six core components.
