Stress Control

A Mind, Body, Life Approach to Boosting Wellbeing

By Jim White

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

An authoritative and readily accessible wellbeing book for treating common mental health problems with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Stress is part and parcel of life. We all get it. Think of blood pressure. If you are alive, you have blood pressure. If you are alive, you have stress. If your blood pressure gets too high, you should do something about it. The same is true with stress and this book will help you to control it.

Stress can be a mixture of anxiety, depression, panic feelings, poor sleep, low self-confidence, low self-esteem and a poor sense of wellbeing. It is one of the most common problems in the world today. But controlling your stress doesn't have to mean expensive therapy or a long waiting list for a referral to a service. This book will teach you to become your own therapist:

· Learn about stress and how it affects you
· Follow straight-forward steps to get an instant sense of control
· Develop a set of linked skills for long-term stress management
· Boost your wellbeing
· Feel in control of your future

This accessible, jargon-free book combines clinically proven methods from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), positive psychology and mindfulness to give you the tools you need to improve your mind, your body and your life.

No One Cares About Crazy People

Ron Powers
Authors:
Ron Powers

"Extraordinary and courageous . . . No doubt if everyone were to read this book, the world would change."---New York Times Book ReviewNew York Times-bestselling author Ron Powers' critically acclaimed narrative of the social history of mental illness in America paired with the deeply personal story of his two sons' battles with schizophrenia.From the centuries of torture of "lunatiks" at Bedlam Asylum to the infamous eugenics era to the follies of the anti-psychiatry movement to the current landscape in which too many families struggle alone to manage afflicted love ones, Powers limns our fears and myths about mental illness and the fractured public policies that have resulted. Braided with that history is the moving story of Powers's beloved son Kevin--spirited, endearing, and gifted--who triumphed even while suffering from schizophrenia until finally he did not, and the story of his courageous surviving son Dean, who is also schizophrenic. A blend of history, biography, memoir, and current affairs ending with a consideration of where we might go from here, this is a thought-provoking look at a dreaded illness that has long been misunderstood.

The Influential Mind

Tali Sharot
Authors:
Tali Sharot

A cutting-edge, research-based inquiry into how we influence those around us, and how understanding the brain can help us change minds for the better.Part of our daily job as humans is to influence others; we teach our children, guide our patients, advise our clients, help our friends and inform our online followers. We do this because we each have unique experiences and knowledge that others may not. But how good are we at this role? It turns out we systematically fall back on suboptimal habits when trying to change other's beliefs and behaviors. Many of these instincts-from trying to scare people into action, to insisting the other is wrong or attempting to exert control-are ineffective, because they are incompatible with how the mind operates. The principle idea of this book is that an attempt to change will be successful if it is well-matched with the core elements that govern how our brain works. Sharot unveils the hidden power of influence, good and bad, and enables us to identify instances in which we fall prey to delusions. The book will search deep below the surface-relying on the latest research in neuroscience and psychology-to provide new insight into human behavior.
