Psychology and many of its subfields have seen a significant shift over the past 10-12 years toward a focus on hope, positive attributes, and character strengths through the positive psychology movement. This book provides a blueprint for a burgeoning subfield in neuropsychology—positive neuropsychology. It proposes an alternative, evidence-based perspective on neuropsychology that incorporates positive psychology principles and a focus on promotion of cognitive health. It synthesizes existing research and provides novel perspectives on promotion of cognitive health in clinical, nonclinical, and academic settings. This work is a resource and reference for neuropsychologists, allied professionals, and students who see the critical role neuropsychologists can play in maintaining, promoting, and being mindful of cognitive health.

This second edition of the popular Cognitive Neuroscience of Aging provides up-to-date coverage of the most fundamental topics in this discipline. Like the first edition, this volume accessibly and comprehensively reviews the neural mechanisms of cognitive aging appropriate to both professionals and students in a variety of domains, including psychology, neuroscience, neuropsychology, neurology, and psychiatry. The chapters are organized into three sections. The first section focuses on major questions regarding methodological approaches and experimental design. It includes chapters on structural imaging (MRI, DTI), functional imaging (fMRI), and molecular imaging (dopamine PET, etc), and covers multimodal imaging, longitudinal studies, and the interpretation of imaging findings. The second section concentrates on specific cognitive abilities, including attention and inhibitory control, executive functions, memory, and emotion. The third section turns to domains with health and clinical implications, such as the emergence of cognitive deficits in middle age, the role of genetics, the effects of modulatory variables (hypertension, exercise, cognitive engagement), and the distinction between healthy aging and the effects of dementia and depression. Taken together, the chapters in this volume, written by many of the most eminent scientists as well as young stars in this discipline, provide a unified and comprehensive overview of cognitive neuroscience of aging.

The Oxford Handbook of Positive Psychology, Second Edition is the seminal reference in the burgeoning field of positive psychology, which, in recent years, has transcended academia to capture the imagination of the general public. The handbook provides a roadmap for the psychology needed by the majority of the population--those who don't need treatment, but want to achieve the lives to which they aspire. The 65 chapters summarize all of the relevant literature in the field, and each of the international slate of contributors is essentially defining a lifetime of research. The content's breadth and depth provide an unparalleled cross-disciplinary look at positive psychology from diverse fields and all branches of psychology, including social, clinical, personality, counseling, school, and developmental psychology. Topics include not only happiness--which has been perhaps misrepresented in the popular media as the entirety of the field--but also hope, strengths, positive emotions, life longings, creativity, emotional creativity, courage, and more, plus guidelines for applying what has worked for people across time and cultures.

"In Neuropsychological Practice with Veterans, Bush endeavors to compile a comprehensive account of how neuropsychological research, assessment, and treatment of veterans are impacted by military status. He succeeds brilliantly with this undertaking...[T]his is an essential text for those working with active duty service members and veterans, and is highly recommended to all those seeking new perspectives."--Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society "In Neuropsychological Practice with Veterans, Dr. Shane S. Bush provides a multifaceted overview of neuropsychological assessments and treatments associated with war veterans who have suffered from traumatic brain injury (TBI) during their service."--Somatic Psychotherapy Today Traumatic brain injury (TBI), afflicting approximately one third of injured veterans returning from duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, is considered the signature injury in these conflicts. In addition to TBI, symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and major depression often afflict these veterans and contribute to neurological symptoms. This is the first volume to provide a comprehensive overview of neuropsychologically grounded assessment, treatment, training, and trends for clinicians who work with this population. Encompassing the writings of clinicians and researchers experienced in working with the Veterans Administration (VA) population, the book is grounded in an understanding of the unique culture of the veteran with its specialized service delivery methods and procedures. In addition to its focus on veterans with TBI, the text also addresses the assessment and treatment of aging veterans of previous military conflicts and of combat and non-combat veterans with neurological and emotional problems related to aging, substance abuse, HIV/hepatitis, psychiatric disorders, and other problems. Key Features: Addresses the growing need for neuropsychological assessment and treatment of returning veterans as well as aging veterans of earlier conflicts Focuses on traumatic brain injury, posttraumatic stress disorder, and major depression Discusses assessment of malingering (faking); benefits, pension, return-to-work evaluations; polytrauma management; and training concerns Written by clinicians and researchers experienced in working with veterans Edited by a neuropsychology specialist who is well known in the VA community

Glück kommt nicht von außen, Glück ist das, was wir aus unseren Erfahrungen machen. Dieses Buch zeigt, dass Menschen dadurch, dass sie ihr eigenes Erleben kontrollieren, die Kontrolle über ihre Lebensqualität selbst in die eigene Hand nehmen. Auf diese Weise kommen sie dem Glück immer näher. »Csikszentmihalyi beweist, was Philosophen schon seit Jahrhunderten sagen: Der Weg zum Glücklichsein liegt nicht in hohler Vergnügungssucht, sondern in sinnvoller Herausforderung.« The New York Times Wer das Glück will, muss das Chaos im eigenen Kopf beherrschen. Wer frei sein will, muss nur seine Ziele kennen. Das Buch fasst jahrzehntelange Forschung über die positiven Aspekte menschlicher Erfahrungen zusammen: Freude, Kreativität und den Prozess vollständigen Einsseins mit dem Leben, den der Autor FLOW nennt. Glück ist nichts, was man mit Geld kaufen könnte. Glück ist flow. Jeder hat dieses Gefühl schon erlebt: über sich selbst zu verfügen, im Einklang mit sich und der Welt zu sein und sein Schicksal in die eigene Hand nehmen zu können. Bei diesen seltenen Gelegenheiten spürt man ein Gefühl von Hochstimmung, von tiefer Freude, das lange anhält und zu einem Maßstab dafür wird, wie das Leben aussehen sollte. »FLOW« ist ein Buch der praktischen Lebensweisheit. Zwar gibt es keinen Königsweg zum flow, auch erfordert die Einzigartigkeit jedes Menschen einen individuellen Zugang; aber wer versteht, was flow ist, dem wird es möglich, das eigene Leben zu verändern. Diese Veränderungen hängen nicht so sehr von äußeren Ereignissen ab, sondern eher davon, wie wir sie deuten. - Glück ist ein Zustand, für den man bereit sein muss, den jeder einzelne kultivieren und für sich verteidigen muss. Menschen, die lernen, ihre innere Erfahrung zu kontrollieren, können ihre Lebensqualität bestimmen; und das kommt dem, was wir gewöhnlich Glück nennen, wohl am allernächsten. »"Flow. Das Geheimnis des Glücks" zeigt, dass Glück nicht vom Himmel fällt. Die Fähigkeit zum Glücklichsein und FLOW zu empfinden, steckt in jedem. Mit Konzentration auf das, was man tut, kann man den Zustand des FLOW erreichen. Ein tolles Buch, das Lust auf Leistung macht.« Wolfgang Joop Flow bezeichnet einen Zustand des Glücksgefühls, in den Menschen geraten, wenn sie gänzlich in einer Beschäftigung »aufgehen«. Entgegen ersten Erwartungen erreichen wir diesen Zustand nahezu euphorischer Stimmung meistens nicht beim Nichtstun oder im Urlaub, sondern wenn wir uns intensiv der Arbeit oder einer schwierigen Aufgabe widmen. Laut The Independent gehört Mihaly Csikszentmihalys »Flow. Das Geheimnis des Glücks« zu den 33 Büchern, die man gelesen haben muss, bevor man 30 wird.

"Neuropsychological Rehabilitation provides useful introductory material and backgroundinformation on various disorders, assessments, and rehabilitative interventions for adult andgeriatric populations...This book is essential for psychologists or clinical neuropsychologists who have a stronginterest in understanding the current medical aspects of neuropsychological rehabilitation."--PsycCRITIQUES This volume disseminates knowledge about the most advanced practices and techniques in the rehabilitation of neuropsychological deficits, covering both specific neuropsychological domains and approaches in neurorehabilitation. It adheres to the philosophy that it is not enough to identify a deficit or diagnose a disease unless doing so helps to direct rehabilitation efforts to improve function. Intended to advance clinical skills, the book goes beyond surface diagnostic practice to foster rehabilitative efforts in response to residual deficits and disease. The volume begins by addressing the foundations of neuropsychology in rehabilitation and discussing, in depth, domain-specific rehabilitation practices, with a focus on functioning. This is followed by a discussion of supplemental applications and practices that go beyond function-specific methodology including neuroimaging and pharmacological agents. Also covered is the role of system/environmental manipulation and transitioning strategies. The final section attends to those presentations/groupings most commonly seen in rehabilitation practice for which there is no prototypical form. Key Features: Presents in depth the most advanced clinical applications for neuropsychological rehabilitation Covers neuropsychological rehabilitation in terms of specific cognitive domains (attention, language, memory) and approaches to and practices in neurorehabilitation (neuroimaging, vocational rehabilitation, pharmacological rehabilitation) Written by the foremost scholars in the field

This clinical reference book presents state-of-the-science knowledge about the neurobiology and genetics of the major mental disorders and how this corresponds with their psychiatric features and neuropsychological traits. The text demonstrates how the application of neuropsychology to these disorders provides a more comprehensive foundation for greater accuracy in assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. The book focuses on the neuropathological and pathophysiological basis of the various symptoms, emphasizing the biological basis of each disorder. This approach stresses the importance of looking at the other functional impacts of these manifestations (for example, cognitive deficits secondary to depression). The text compares adult versus child presentation of psychiatric disorders and covers the major forms of psychopathology including ADHD; Learning Disabilities; Pervasive Developmental Disorders; Mood, Anxiety, Personality, and Schizophrenic Disorders; Cortical and Subcortical Dementias; and Delirium. The book is written for clinical professionals to increase diagnostic accuracy and intervention success and to provide a way to approach psychopathologies as disorders of the neurological system. Key Features: Provides state-of-the-science knowledge about the application of neuropsychological practice to the major forms of psychopathology Examines neurological and neuropsychological features of the major forms of psychopathology Demonstrates how the application of neurobiology and genetics to psychiatric disorders can increase accuracy of assessment, diagnosis, and treatment Considers adult versus child presentation of psychiatric disorders
