Jim Kalat’s best-selling INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHOLOGY takes a critical thinking approach to the major theories and concerns of psychology. Kalat’s blend of humorous writing style with fun, hands-on Try It Yourself activities, gives students an engaging learning experience that gets them involved with even the most intimidating concepts. This proven approach has won the text well-deserved praise from instructors and students alike. By prompting students to ask themselves questions like How was this conclusion reached? and Does the evidence really support it?, Kalat encourages the use of scientific principles that psychologists utilize when attempting to answer questions about human intellect, emotion, and behavior. This approach helps students separate what merely sounds plausible from what is scientifically provable -- both in the psychology classroom and beyond it. With the text’s carefully crafted content and pedagogy, as well as its supporting learning tools, students are able to see the study of psychology as an endeavor that has relevance to their scholastic and personal lives. The Ninth Edition builds upon the text’s reputation for incorporating timely information that draws on the latest research and literature.

Beginning in classical antiquity, this book demonstrates how exhaustion has always been with us and helps us evaluate more critically the narratives we tell ourselves about the phenomenon. Pathologized, demonized, sexualized, and even weaponized, exhaustion unites the mind with the body and society in such a way that we attach larger questions of agency, willpower, and well-being to its symptoms. "Exhaustion" finds in our struggle to overcome weariness a more significant effort to master ourselves.

"A funny, horribly accurate portrait of a life in California in the Fifties."—Rolling Stone Jack Isidore doesn't see the world like most people. According to his brother-in-law Charlie, he’s a crap artist, obsessed with his own bizarre theories and ideas, which he fanatically records in his many notebooks. He is so grossly unequipped for real life that his sister and brother-in-law feel compelled to rescue him from it. But while Fay and Charlie Hume put on a happy face for the world, they prove to be just as sealed off from reality, in thrall to obsessions that are slightly more acceptable than Jack's but a great deal uglier. Their constant fighting and betrayals threaten their own marriage and the relationships of everyone around them. When they bring Jack into their home, he finds himself in the middle of a maelstrom of suburban angst from which he might not be able to escape. Confessions of a Crap Artist is one of Philip K. Dick's most accomplished novels, and the only non–science fiction novel published in his lifetime.

Could CRT provide the first structured method of alleviating cognitive deficits associated with schizophrenia? Cognitive Remediation Therapy for Schizophrenia describes the background and development of this new psychological therapy and demonstrates how it provides the first structured help to overcome the thinking problems associated with schizophrenia. In three sections, the book covers the theoretical and empirical underpinning of cognitive remediation therapy and explores its application. Part I, 'The Development of Therapy', provides the historical context and theoretical background to the therapy and emphasizes the value of rehabilitating cognitive deficits. In Part II, 'Improving Cognitive Processes', the process and effects of changing cognition are examined. Finally, in Part III, 'The Process of Therapy', the authors provide a clinical guide to the delivery of cognitive remediation therapy and use case examples to support its efficacy. This book is the first to describe an individual cognitive remediation therapy programme based on a clear model of the relationship between thinking and behaviour. It will be of both academic and clinical value to all those health professionals and clinical academics who want not only to understand the relationships between thought and action but also to intervene to improve therapy.

Mary Buser began her career at Rikers Island as a social work intern, brimming with ideas and eager to help incarcerated women find a better path. Her reassignment to a men's jail coincided with the dawn of the city's "stop-and-frisk" policy, a flood of unprecedented arrests, and the biggest jailhouse build-up in New York City history. Committed to the possibility of growth for the scarred and tattooed masses who filed into her session booth, Buser was suddenly faced with black eyes, punched-out teeth, and frantic whispers of beatings by officers. Recognizing the greater danger of pointing a finger at one's captors, Buser attempted to help them, while also keeping them as well as herself, safe. Following her promotion to assistant chief, she was transferred to different jails, working in the Mental Health Center, and finally, at Rikers's notorious "jail within jail," the dreaded solitary confinement unit, where she saw horrors she'd never imagined. Finally, it became too much to bear, forcing Buser to flee Rikers and never look back - until now. Lockdown on Rikers shines a light into the deepest and most horrific recesses of the criminal justice system, and shows how far it has really drifted from the ideals we espouse.

Piercing research goes beyond the usual arguments against genetic manipulation to show that better crops were never the issue. What bioengineering is really about is a new kind of total serfdom, where the entire world will be in thrall to the likes of Monsanto if they ever want to eat again. Author F. William Engdahl wrote the classic A Century of War, which exposed the hand of Anglo-American petropolitics and hegemonic ambition behind the horrors of the World Wars.
