An Entire Psychology of Happiness Course Conveyed in Easy-to-Read Emails Understand the psychology of happiness. Discover why happiness is a choice. And, learn four simple ways of choosing happiness in this succinct guide that can easily be read over a weekend or long plane flight. "What a beautiful gift--a few simple steps that can end what is so often, and for so many, a futile quest for a truly happy life...This is a simple, practical guide for anyone who's searching for that elusive state called true happiness." - John McGrail, Ph.D. Clinical Therapist. "What a terrific text, especially for those who have yet to learn lessons of happiness, success, and their personal responsibility in making each happen. Definitely a must read for all!"- LaQuisha Beckum Ed.S. Professor of Psychology. About Authentic Happiness in Seven Emails Have you found yourself caught in the happiness trap: in the continual pursuit of happiness? After years of pursuing happiness through money, relationships, and material possessions, Vickay found herself unfulfilled and unhappy. A college course on the psychology of happiness taught by a philosophy instructor piqued her curiosity. On a whim she was inspired to contact the professor for some insights on how to break out of her rut. His ideas forever changed her approach to finding happiness and started her on a path towards living life more skillfully. It all began with an email, containing a simple question, asked at the right time: How can I be happier? Authentic Happiness in Seven Emails is the answer to that question. Through these seven emails, the professor shares three key concepts and four critical skills for living a happy life: - What makes us happy? - If happiness is a choice, why don't we always choose it? - What is happiness anyway? - How can we experience more peace and less negativity? - How can we experience more joy? - How can we be more engaged and satisfied with our lives? - How can we live a meaningful life and rediscover our sense of purpose? Topics Include: the happiness equation; positive psychology; flow experiences; the hedonic treadmill; hedonic adaptation; cultural conditioning and the unconscious mind; mindfulness and meditation; gratitude; negative thinking and the negativity bias; internal locus of control, and much more. The professor draws on modern psychological research to provide practical tools for experiencing consistent, everyday happiness, but he also raises philosophical questions that will have you discovering your own unique insights on life. Authentic Happiness in Seven Emails is more than a collection of emails or an introductory textbook to positive psychology. It is an inspirational, thought-provoking guide to the science of happiness and to a life well lived. Whether over a week, weekend, or long plane flight, what better investment of your time than to learn the basics of the psychology of happiness? Why not learn how to be happy starting today?

A huge bestseller in Europe, Frederic Lenoir’s Happiness is an exciting journey that examines how history’s greatest philosophers and religious figures have answered life’s most fundamental question: What is happiness and how do I achieve it? From the ancient Greeks on—from Aristotle, Plato, and Chuang Tzu to the Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad; from Voltaire, Spinoza, and Schopenhauer to Kant, Freud, and even modern neuroscientists—Lenoir considers the idea that true and lasting happiness is indeed possible. In clear language, Lenoir concisely surveys what the greatest thinkers of all time have had to say on the subject, and, with charming prose, raises provocative questions: · Do we have a duty to be happy? · Is there a connection between individual and collective happiness? · Is happiness contagious? · Is there a difference between pleasure and happiness? · Can unhappiness and happiness coexist? · Does our happiness depend on our luck? Understanding how civilization’s best minds have answered those questions, Lenoir suggests, not only makes for a fascinating reading experience, but also provides a way for us to see us how happiness, that most elusive of feelings, is attainable in our own lives.

Who are the people we describe as having learning or intellectual disability? Many clinical psychologists working in a mental health setting are now encountering people with learning disabilities, in some cases for the first time. This book provides the background information and understanding required to provide a basis for a truly inclusive and effective service for people with learning disability. In A Guide to Psychological Understanding of People with Learning Disabilities, Jenny Webb argues that we need a new, clinically-based definition of learning disability and an approach which integrates scientific rigour with humanistic concern for this group of people, who are so often vulnerable to misunderstanding and marginalisation. Psychological approaches need to be grounded in an understanding of historical, theoretical and ethical influences as well as a body of knowledge from other disciplines. The Eight Domains is a simple but holistic method for information gathering, while The Three Stories is an integrative model of formulation for use in relation for those people whose needs do not fit neatly into any one theory. Divided into three sections, the book explores: Understanding the context Understanding the person: eight domains Making sense: three stories. This book provides an invaluable guide for trainee clinical psychologists and their supervisors and tutors, working with adults with learning disability. It will also be valuable for clinical psychologists working in mainstream settings who may now be receiving referrals for people with learning disability and want to update their skills.

Learn to change the self-critical stories in your mind and rewire your brain so that you gain the self-confidence to build more fulfilling relationships, careers, and social life. Since childhood, our experiences and interactions have shaped the running narrative of who we are and how we view ourselves. When those interactions are painful, many of us have a tendency to internalize the negativity, translating mean or selfish messages given to us by family, friends, or teachers during our youth into truths about who we are—our flaws, failures, and shortcomings.Through practical and easy-to-understand principles and techniques, What Went Right teaches you to recognize and intervene on self-defeating thought processes and uncover your core beliefs about who you really are. Through these exercises, you will learn how your thoughts drive feelings that influence your behaviors. By changing your thinking, you can unlock self-affirming feelings and actions needed to create your new life story and become the person you want to be.
