To read this book ... twice if its mythbusting revelations cause you to repress the memory of it."--Michael Shermer, Publisher of Skeptic magazine, monthly columnist for Scientific American, and author of Why People Believe Weird Things "Is it true that psychology is mostly common sense? For anyone who wonders, this amazing book-which effectively discounts 50 pop psychology myths and briefly dismisses 250 more-provides convincing answers. And it does more: it offers fascinating examples of how science works and supports critical thinking. For teachers, students, writers, and anyone who wants to think smarter, this classic-to-be will be a valuable resource and a great read." -David G. Myers, Hope College, author, Intuition: Its Powers and Perils "I find each and every chapter excellent and from a teaching point of view, brilliant. The way in which the history of the myths is presented up to the critical but balanced discussion of each myth, is a great achievement. Scott Lilienfeld is well-known for his user-friendly writing style, but in this text he and his co-authors reach a new level. This led to a book which will not only be easily understandable by undergraduate and especially first year students, but also by the general population." -Dap Louw, Head, Centre for Psychology and the Law, University of the Free State.

نستكشف من خلال اللَّعب كيف يسير عالمنا، وكيف يتفاعل الأصدقاء مع بعضهم، ونتعلم تفسير كثير من الغموض والإثارة التي يمكن أن تواجهنا في الحياة؛ فربُّ الأسرة يستطيع من خلال اللَّعب مع عائلته وضع قوانين ودساتير تنظم حياة أولاده، فضلاً عن أنه يكتشف عن طريق هذه الأنشطة السلبيات فيقوِّمها، والإيجابيات فيعززها، ويشيع جوًّا من الألفة، ويزيد الترابط الاجتماعي، ويخلف ذكريات جميلة لا تُنسى. أما الأصدقاء، سواء أكانوا أصدقاء دراسة، أم مهنة، أم وظيفة، أم أيَّ مجال من مجالات الحياة، فإن اللَّعب يشيع في الفريق جوًّا من الألفة والمحبة، ويجدِّد الروابط، ويُقدِّم نشاطًا ودفعًا معنويًّا لزيادة العمل والإنتاج. إذًا، اللَّعب ليس للأطفال أو لتضييع الوقت بما لا طائل منه، وإنما هو أساس التفكير الحضاري، والجوهر الذي يجعل الحياة تنبض بالحيوية والنشاط، إنه لأفراد المجتمع كلهم على اختلاف فئاتهم، علاوة على أنه للأعمار كلها أيضًا. يبحث هذا الكتاب في فهم اللَّعب، واستخدامه في العثور على الحقائق التي تعتمل في أنفسنا، وكيفية التعبير عنها؛ إنه يدور حول تسخير القوة التي تشكلت في دواخلنا، تلك القوة التي تتيح لنا اكتشاف أعماقنا وتوسيع عالمنا. - هل تحب اللَّعب؟ - هل تظن أن اللَّعب مضيعة للوقت؟ - هل تلعب مع أطفالك؟ - هل تشعر بالذنب إذا فقدت بعض وقتك في اللَّعب؟ العبيكان 2017

This book presents a unique exploration of common myths about autism by examining these myths through the perspectives of autistic individuals. Examining the history of attitudes and beliefs about autism and autistic people, this book highlights the ways that these beliefs are continuing to impact autistic individuals and their families, and offers insights as to how viewing these myths from an autistic perspective can facilitate the transformation of these myths into a more positive direction. From ‘savant syndrome’ to the conception that people with autism lack empathy, each chapter examines a different social myth – tracing its origins, highlighting the implications it has had for autistic individuals and their families, debunking misconceptions and reconstructing the myth with recommendations for current and future practice. By offering an alternative view of autistic individuals as competent and capable of constructing their own futures, this book offers researchers, practitioners, individuals and families a deeper, more accurate, more comprehensive understanding of prevalent views about the abilities of autistic individuals as well as practical ways to re-shape these into more proactive and supportive practices.

Named #1 Best Business Book of 2011, by Patriot-News-PennLive.com If you have ever flown in an airplane, used electricity from a nuclear power plant, or taken an antibiotic, you have benefited from a brilliant mistake. Each of these life-changing innovations was the result of many missteps and an occasional brilliant insight that turned a mistake into a surprising portal of discovery. In Brilliant Mistakes, Paul Schoemaker, founder and chairman of Decision Strategies International, shares critical insights on the surprising benefits of making well-chosen mistakes. Brilliant Mistakes explores why minimizing mistakes may be the greatest mistake of all, situations when mistakes are most beneficial and when they should be avoided, the counter-intuitive idea that we should deliberately permit errors at times, and how to make the most of brilliant mistakes to improve business results. Brilliant Mistakes is based on solid academic research and insights from Schoemaker's work with more than 100 organizations, as well as his provocative Harvard Business Review article with Robert Gunther, "The Wisdom of Deliberate Mistakes." Schoemaker provides a practical roadmap for using mistakes to accelerate learning for your organization and yourself.

More people are in psychotherapy than ever before. Yet most of them have no idea of the vast differences between the hundreds of various schools of therapy. Therapy Breakthrough is the first book to clearly explain the theories and practices of the two big camps: Psychodynamic or PD therapy and Cognitive-Behavioral or CB therapy. PD therapists believe that emotional problems are caused by hidden forces in our unconscious minds, forces that cannot be observed directly and that resist being uncovered. CB therapists, by contrast, maintain that the roots of people’s emotional and behavioral disturbances can be identified by direct questions, and these problems can then be tackled by straightforward techniques. Therapy Breakthrough is written from the standpoint of CB therapy. Using psychological research, philosophy, and common sense, it argues that PD therapy is founded on mistaken theories of the mind, and explains how to apply CB methods directly to your own problems.
