Given the current climate of economic and environmental uncertainty, it is all too easy for individuals to feel hopeless about their lives and indifferent to the problems of others. But according to leading psychologist, James Garbarino, this is the peak time for people to enhance their optimism, empathy, and emotional responsiveness. In his important new book, The Positive Psychology of Personal Transformation, Dr. Garbarino reveals the social basis for moral development in adversity, and the mental and physical benefits of psychological and spiritual growth. Drawing widely on his years as a healing professional and own experience of personal crisis as well as on decades of resilience and happiness literature, the author traces the evolution of the moral sense that affects all human relationships, including the one with the Earth itself. In these compelling pages, Dr. Garbarino: Examines how humans’ deep bonds with dogs can model positive human relationships. Compares the risks and benefits of the “oblivious” versus the self-aware life. Analyzes the role of trauma in heightening our sense of the meaning of life and defines the experience of transformational grace in adversity. Explains current manifestations of narcissism and the need for “the positive death of the self.” Asserts that every person is capable of “living an ‘extraordinary’ life.” A book with vast significance across the healing disciplines, The Positive Psychology of Personal Transformation should be read, savored, and practiced by researchers, practitioners, and scientists in clinical child, school, and developmental psychology; social work; educational and community psychology; sociology; and public health.

They are laborers, soldiers, refugees, and orphans. In areas of the world torn by poverty, disease, and war, millions of children are invisible victims, deprived of home, family, and basic human rights. Their chances for a stable adult life are extremely slim. The powerful interdisciplinary volume Vulnerable Children brings a global child-rights perspective to the lives of indigenous, refugee, and minority children in and from crisis-prone regions. Focusing on self-determination, education, security, health, and related issues, an international panel of scholars examines the structural and political sources of children's vulnerabilities and their effects on development. The book analyzes intervention programs currently in place and identifies challenges that must be met at both the community and larger policy levels. These chapters also go a long way to explain the often-blurred line between vulnerability and resilience. Included in the coverage: Dilemmas of rights-based approaches to child well-being in an African cultural context. Poverty and minority children’s education in the U.S.: case study of a Sudanese refugee family. The heterogeneity of young children’s experiences in Kenya and Brazil. A world tour of interventions for children of a parent with a psychiatric illness. An exploration of fosterage of Owambo orphans in Namibia. UNICEF in Colombia: defending and nurturing childhood in media, public, and policy discourses. Vulnerable Children is a must-have volume for researchers, graduate students, and clinicians/professionals/practitioners across a range of fields, including child and school psychology, social work, maternal and child health, developmental psychology, anthropology, sociology, social policy, and public health.

Therapists who work with children and adolescents are frequently faced with nonresponsive, reticent, or completely nonverbal clients. This volume brings together expert clinicians who explore why 4- to 16-year-olds may have difficulty talking and provide creative ways to facilitate communication. A variety of play, art, movement, and animal-assisted therapies, as well as trauma-focused therapy with adolescents, are illustrated with vivid clinical material. Contributors give particular attention to the neurobiological effects of trauma, how they manifest in the body when children "clam up," and how to help children self-regulate and feel safe. Most chapters conclude with succinct lists of recommended practices for engaging hard-to-reach children that therapists can immediately try out in their own work.

People are actively engaged in a life-search for meaning and this search can lead them to take a spiritual perspective of themselves and the world in which they live. Some find this a spiritual journey-a journey towards an inner path enabling a person to discover the essence of their being; or the deepest values and meanings by which people live-through art, music or religion. The ultimate purpose of our spiritual journey is to be an enabling meaning to be found and given for self and others. In Tibetan Buddhism, the ultimate intention and purpose of our personal and spiritual journey is to be of service and benefit to all beings and to bring all beings to 'enlightenment'. Enlightenment is the ultimate step on our journey, whereby we go beyond our everyday consciousness to serve a 'greater whole', where we are in touch with our ultimate, true nature- the essence of our being. We can think of this journey to enlightenment as a journey both for personal mastery and beyond it

Luc has assembled a uniquely comprehensive treasure trove of wisdom that will help you navigate to a truly evolved life. Could be this generations' Think And Grow Rich!" -David M. Corbin, Hall of Fame Keynote Speaker- Business Advisor-Award Winning Inventor and Two time bestselling author "Luc Goulet and his work are something in and of this world but also reach far beyond what we already know to be true of it. Many leaders promise successful methods to change. But, with ease Luc delivers ways to distinguish yourself from the person you used to know yourself to be with the person and business that you are capable of conceiving, becoming and mastering." -Jo Standing, Author of Conquer Trauma Drama, Speaker and Entertainer on PTSD Resilience "Luc Goulet compassionately delves into the very essence of human suffering and joy, offering his recipe for happiness. It’s not the circumstances that we stumble into that transform us. Instead it’s our ability to transcend expectations, serve others and choose to fully embrace the whole package of the realities of who we are and what life has to offer with humility and gratitude --- the good, the bad and the ugly, that creates the change we seek.” -Dr Theresa Nicassio, Registered Psychologist & Integrative Wellness Educator Award-Winning Author & Founder of TheresaNicassio.com "This book is a game changer! Word for word, this book is filled with empowering messages to inspire us to live life to the fullest. I was inspired by Luc’s first book The Big Bang Project, but in this book, Luc takes it to the next level and shows us step by step, how to open our hearts, believe with 100% conviction that whatever we want to achieve is waiting for us. "If you need to be inspired, or need an injection of confidence and belief in your next project, this book shines! Luc has an honourable gift with his writing, reaching out via his heart. His words literally lifted from the pages and found their way to me on a soul level. Leverage your mind is a book everyone must read! Read this book today, and see the results of your new life unfold right before your very eyes.” -Jason Stephenson, You Tube meditation superstar with over 60 million views and 500 000 followers. CEO, Relax Me Online Australia Pty Ltd "When Luc Goulet says "Happiness is choice and success is a mindset" he masterfully captures the essence of how to live a more joyful, wholehearted life. His book is all about how to "reset" not only the old, self-defeating patterns of thinking, perceiving and being but also those beliefs and cognitions that do not serve to move us into joyful and abundant living. Here is a jewel of a book, concise, accessible, easy to read and yet profound in terms of powerful insights and tools to create the life we truly wish to lead. I highly recommend this book as it seems to me to be a guiding light in the current darkness of confusion, fear and uncertainty around us." -Robert (Dusty) Staub, best selling author of four books “As a professional tennis coach, I highly recommend Leverage Your Mind to all coaches, teachers, mentors, athletes and students. The peak performance mindset techniques put forth will help you reach your personal level of excellence. This is priceless information for anyone who wants to perform at their best, always!” -François Lefebvre, Top level professional tennis coach

Mehrere Jahre musste der österreichische Psychologe Viktor E. Frankl in deutschen Konzentrationslagern verbringen. Doch trotz all des Leids, das er dort sah und erlebte, kam er zu dem Schluss, dass es selbst an Orten der größten Unmenschlichkeit möglich ist, einen Sinn im Leben zu sehen. Seine Erinnerungen, die er in diesem Buch festhielt und die über Jahrzehnte Millionen von Menschen bewegten, sollen weder Mitleid erregen noch Anklage erheben. Sie sollen Kraft zum Leben geben.

Die erstaunlichen Fähigkeiten unseres Gehirns Unser Gehirn ist nicht - wie lange angenommen - eine unveränderliche Hardware. Es kann sich vielmehr auf verblüffende Weise umgestalten und sogar selbst reparieren - und das bis ins hohe Alter. Diese Erkenntnis ist die wohl sensationellste Entdeckung der Neurowissenschaften. "Dr. Doidge, ein hervorragender Psychiater und Forscher, erkundet die Neuroplastizität in Begegnungen mit Pionieren der Forschung und mit Patienten, die von den neuen Möglichkeiten der Rehabilitation profitiert haben. ... Das Buch ist ein absolut außergewöhnliches und hoffnungsvolles Zeugnis der Möglichkeiten des menschlichen Gehirns." Oliver Sacks "...ein faszinierender Abriss der jüngsten Revolution in den Neurowissenschaften!" The New York Times "Das Gehirn ist kein fertig verdrahteter Denkapparat, der im Laufe des Lebens immer weiter verschleißt. Es kann sich umorganisieren, umformen und manchmal kann es sogar wachsen. Der Psychologe Norman Doidge erklärt neueste Ergebnisse der Hirnforschung: Durch einfühlsam geschilderte Beispiele macht er sie für jedermann verständlich und nachvollziehbar." Deutschlandfunk
