Linehan, Marsha M. DAT - Dialektisk Adfærdsterapi. Færdighedstræning (8771583998)

DAT er en bredt baseret kognitiv adfærdsterapeutisk behandling, der oprindelig er udviklet til kronisk selvmordstruede personer diagnosticeret med emotionelt ustabil personlighedsstruktur (borderline personality disorder, BPD). DAT består af en kombination af individuel psykoterapi, gruppebaseret færdighedstræning, telefoncoaching og et vejledningsteam og var den første form for psykoterapi, der i kontrollerede forsøg viste sig at have effekt for mennesker med BPD. Siden er der gennemført en række kliniske forsøg, som har demonstreret tilgangens effekt, ikke blot for BPD, men også for en lang række andre forstyrrelser og problemer, herunder både følelsesmæssig underkontrol og overkontrol og tilhørende kognitive og adfærdsmæssige mønstre.DAT - Dialektisk Adfærdsterapi. Færdighedstræning består af to bøger: DAT Manual (650 sider) og DAT Kursusark & Arbejdsark (440 sider).Der er fire primære DAT-færdighedstræningsmoduler: Mindfulnessfærdigheder, Relationsfærdigheder, færdigheder i Følelsesregulering samt Hold ud-færdigheder. Inden for disse fire moduler er der tilføjet nye færdigheder, bl.a. et afsnit om at undervise i mindfulness fra forskellige synsvinkler og afsnit om færdigheder i at finde og opbygge de relationer, man ønsker, og at afbryde relationer, man ikke ønsker. De mange kursusinstruktioner, kursusark og arbejdsark - der er blevet brugt i mere end to årtier af tusindvis af terapeuter og klienter over hele verden - har gennemgået en betydelig revision og er blevet udvidet, så de afspejler seneste forskning og kliniske fremskridt. Forfatteren, Marsha M. Linehan, har grundlagt og videreudviklet dialektisk adfærdsterapi (DAT). Hun er professor i psykologi, psykiatri og adfærdsvidenskab samt leder af Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics ved Washington University. Hun er zen-mester og underviser i mindfulness og kontemplativ praksis for sundhedspersonale.

Irvine, William B. You (0190869194)

What are you? Obviously, you are a person with human ancestors that can be plotted on a family tree, but you have other identities as well. According to evolutionary biologists, for example, you are a member of the species Homo sapiens. To a microbiologist, though, you are a collection of cells, each of which has its own cellular ancestry. A geneticist might point out that besides these identities, you can be understood as a gene-replication machine, which can be plotted on a 'genetic tree.' Finally a physicist will give a rather different answer to the identity question: you can be understood as a collection of atoms, each of which has a very long history. Some have been around since the Big Bang, and others are the result of nuclear fusion that took place within a star. Not only that, but most of your atoms belonged to other living things before joining you. From your atoms' point of view, then, you are just a way station on a multibillion-year-long journey. You: A Natural History offers a multi-disciplinary investigation of your hyper-extended family tree, going all the way back to the Big Bang. And while your family tree may contain surprises, your hyper-extended history contains some truly amazing stories. As the result of learning more about who and what you are, and about how you came to be here, you will likely see the world around you with fresh eyes. You will also become aware of all the one-off events that had to take place for your existence to be possible: stars had to explode, the earth had to be hit 4.5 billion years ago by a planetesimal and 65 million years ago by an asteroid, microbes had to engulf microbes, the African savanna had to undergo climate change, and of course, any number of your direct ancestors had to meet and mate. It is difficult, on becoming aware of just how contingent your own existence is, not to feel very lucky to be part of our universe.

Ord, Toby The Precipice: Existential Risk and the Future of Humanity (0316484911)

This urgent and eye-opening book makes the case that protecting humanity's future is the central challenge of our time. If all goes well, human history is just beginning. Our species could survive for billions of years - enough time to end disease, poverty, and injustice, and to flourish in ways unimaginable today. But this vast future is at risk. With the advent of nuclear weapons, humanity entered a new age, where we face existential catastrophes - those from which we could never come back. Since then, these dangers have only multiplied, from climate change to engineered pathogens and artificial intelligence. If we do not act fast to reach a place of safety, it will soon be too late. Drawing on over a decade of research, The Precipice explores the cutting-edge science behind the risks we face. It puts them in the context of the greater story of humanity: showing how ending these risks is among the most pressing moral issues of our time. And it points the way forward, to the actions and strategies that can safeguard humanity. An Oxford philosopher committed to putting ideas into action, Toby Ord has advised the US National Intelligence Council, the UK Prime Minister's Office, and the World Bank on the biggest questions facing humanity. In The Precipice, he offers a startling reassessment of human history, the future we are failing to protect, and the steps we must take to ensure that our generation is not the last.

Meacham, Jon Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power (1400067669)
Meacham, Jon Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power (1400067669)

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review - The Washington Post - Entertainment Weekly - The Seattle Times - St. Louis Post-Dispatch - Bloomberg Businessweek In this magnificent biography, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of American Lion and Franklin and Winston brings vividly to life an extraordinary man and his remarkable times. Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power gives us Jefferson the politician and president, a great and complex human being forever engaged in the wars of his era. Philosophers think; politicians maneuver. Jefferson's genius was that he was both and could do both, often simultaneously. Such is the art of power. Thomas Jefferson hated confrontation, and yet his understanding of power and of human nature enabled him to move men and to marshal ideas, to learn from his mistakes, and to prevail. Passionate about many things--women, his family, books, science, architecture, gardens, friends, Monticello, and Paris--Jefferson loved America most, and he strove over and over again, despite fierce opposition, to realize his vision: the creation, survival, and success of popular government in America. Jon Meacham lets us see Jefferson's world as Jefferson himself saw it, and to appreciate how Jefferson found the means to endure and win in the face of rife partisan division, economic uncertainty, and external threat. Drawing on archives in the United States, England, and France, as well as unpublished Jefferson presidential papers, Meacham presents Jefferson as the most successful political leader of the early republic, and perhaps in all of American history. The father of the ideal of individual liberty, of the Louisiana Purchase, of the Lewis and Clark expedition, and of the settling of the West, Jefferson recognized that the genius of humanity--and the genius of the new nation--lay in the possibility of progress, of discovering the undiscovered and seeking the unknown. From the writing of the Declaration of Independence to elegant dinners in Paris and in the President's House; from political maneuverings in the boardinghouses and legislative halls of Philadelphia and New York to the infant capital on the Potomac; from his complicated life at Monticello, his breathtaking house and plantation in Virginia, to the creation of the University of Virginia, Jefferson was central to the age. Here too is the personal Jefferson, a man of appetite, sensuality, and passion. The Jefferson story resonates today not least because he led his nation through ferocious partisanship and cultural warfare amid economic change and external threats, and also because he embodies an eternal drama, the struggle of the leadership of a nation to achieve greatness in a difficult and confounding world. Praise for Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power 'This is probably the best single-volume biography of Jefferson ever written.'

Scale Patterns for Guitar (1696447682)

How do you NOT sound like you're just playing up and down the scale?This question gets asked almost daily by guitarists just like you.I wrote this book to answer that question.Look. Everybody knows you're supposed to practice scales if you want to know your way around the guitar fretboard. But nobody really talks about how to turn those scales into musical phrases rather than just playing the notes up and down, up and down.Melodic patterns turn scale practice into music practice.Melodic patterns-also known as scale sequences-have been used by composers and songwriters from Bach to the Beatles. They show up in every era and genre of music. Practicing sequence patterns rather than just going up and down the scale is the first step to TURN THE NOTES INTO MUSIC. It's no wonder that scale sequences have been used for centuries to train basic technique and musicianship skills on practically every instrument. I'm, now, presenting this same practice to you, the guitar player.Melodic patterns will super-charge your lead playing.The secret to great lead playing is melodic phrasing. That's exactly what scale sequences teach you, to connect your ideas-no more wandering around the fretboard hoping to play something that sounds good. 134 unique scale sequences for mastering the fretboardEach sequence is shown ascending and descending through one octave of the C major scale and presented in both standard notation and TAB. The scale shape and fingering used for the sequences are shown, along with a breakdown of the cell or melodic idea that was used to create the pattern.FREE Sound Files IncludedExamples shown in each chapter are clearly demonstrated, so you can hear what they sound like.

Gorsuch, Anne E. Turizm (0801473284)

In the Soviet Union and the eastern bloc, the idea of 'vacation' was never as uncomplicated as throwing some suitcases in the car and heading for the beach. The emphasis was on individual self-improvement within the framework of the collective, an approach manifest in everything from the scheduling of physical exercise to the group tours organized for factory workers, Party cadres, and other segments of society. Like other Soviet-style utopian projects, socialist tourism, which was often heavily laden with rules and prescriptions, was a consciousness-raising project, part of the vast effort to forge new socialist men and women.Turizm is the first book to examine the history of tourism in Russia and eastern Europe from the tsarist period to the age of Soviet and east European mass tourism in the 1960s and 1970s. The contributors to this volume address topics including the roots of socialist tourism, the role of tourism in the making of nations and maintenance of empire, and ways in which the men and women of the 'margins of Europe' understood themselves in relation to 'Europe.' Especially interesting are chapters that show how individuals pursued their own consumerist goals within the framework of collective tourism, obliging the regimes to adapt. Illustrated with period photographs and promotional materials, Turizm will appeal not only to historians of the region but also to anyone with an interest in consumer culture, travel, leisure, and nation-building.
