  2. 2. 3 DOSTĘPNE | PSYCHOLOGIA Always the Fat Kid Childhood obesity in the United States has tripled in a generation.But while debates continue over the content of school lunches and the dangers of fast food, we are just beginning to recognize the full extent of the long-term physical, psychological, and social problems that overweight children will endure throughout their lives. Most dramatically, children today have a shorter life expectancy than their parents, something never beforeseen in the course of human history. They will face more chronic illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes that will further burden our healthcare system. Here, authors Jacob Warren and K. Bryant Smalley examine the full effects of childhood obesity and offer the provocative message that being overweight in youth is not a disease but the result of poor lifestyle choices. Theirs is a clarion call for parents to have "the talk" with their kids, which medical professionals say is a harder topicto addressthan sex or drugs. Urgent, timely, and authoritative, Always the Fat Kid delivers a message our society can no longer ignore. "A chronicle of the painful, long-term effects of being a "fat kid.."..

Rich clinical illustrations include an extended case example that runs throughout the book. More than 20 activity planning forms, worksheets, and other reproducible materials are featured.

In contrast, psychological problems such as ADHD, autism, anxiety, and depression are on the rise, as are medical conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and autoimmune disorders. Why, in this era of unprecedented scientific self-knowledge, does there seem to be so much uncertainty about what human beings need for optimal development? Evolution, Early Experience and Human Development asserts that human development is being misshaped by government policies, social practices, and public beliefs that fail to consider basic human needs. In this pioneering volume, scientists from a range of disciplines theorize that the increase in conditions such as depression and obesity can be partially attributed to a disparity between the environments and conditions under which our mammalian brains currently develop and our evolutionary heritage.

What does it mean to be a subject and how is it different from being a self? Is analytic psychotherapy doomed to promote individualism?

The basis for this comparative analysis is laid by means of a critical look at what it means to be a subject across social levels; the manner in which subjecthood develops and its inherent reliance on ethical positioning. Methodologically, the book interfaces theory with the empirical fields of psychotherapy and social activism, further strengthening its rooting in psychosocial studies.

In this intriguing book, author John G. Benjafield, an expert in the history of psychology, examines the contributions of scores of psychologists and psychological thinkers, from Pythagoras, Lao-tzu, and Aristotle to Darwin, Skinner, and Jung. Benjafield begins by considering the origins of psychological thought in the philosophical works of Plato and Aristotle, who framed many of the key questions that still define the field. After considering the contributions of such scholars as Descartes and Darwin, the author examines the rise of psychology as a distinct academic discipline, discussing in detail the work of William James and Wilhelm Wundt, before moving on to the seminal contributions of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. Later chapters deal with the rise of behaviourism and with recent developments in the field, including the growing influence of neuroscience. The result is a fascinating look at how mankind's "proper study" has been carried out, from ancient times to the present day.

People readily behave as amateur psychologists, offering explanations for what people think, feel, and do. But what exactly are psychologists trying to do? What scientific grounding do they have for their approach? This Very Short Introduction explores some of psychology's leading ideas and their practical relevance. In this new edition, Gillian Butler and Freda McManus explore a variety of new topics and ways of studying the brain. Until recently it was not possible to study the living human brain directly, so psychologists studied our behaviour, and used their observations to derive hypotheses about what was going on inside. Now - through neuroscience - our knowledge of the workings of the brain has increased and improved technology provides us with a scientific basis on which to understand the structure and workings of the brain, and allows brain activity to be observed and measured.

  14. 14. 15 DOSTĘPNE | PSYCHOLOGIA Safe, Sane and Consensual Psychological and medical perspectives on sadomasochism (SM) have historically been concerned with understanding it as a form of psychopathology. In the past (but still often today) studies of SM have been concerned with extreme and most often non- consensual acts. More recently, however, there has been growing interest in exploring the meaning of sadomasochism in non- pathological ways. Safe, Sane and Consensual includes work from across the social sciences exploring a variety of aspects of SM from a non-pathological perspective. There are discussions of the history and culture of SM, medical and legal understandings, along with theory and original research on the topic. There are also sections on SM and psychotherapy and writing on bridging the academic/activist divide. This book, now in paperback with a new introduction, includes contributions from an international group of academics, practitioners and activists and represents some of the most recent cutting edge work in the field by leading scholars "One could say that Safe, Sane and Consensual poses more questions than it answers, but it is not necessarily a criticism - it was high time that 7/1/2013 9781137338372 103.95 PLN PO RABACIE: 88.36 PLN Palgrave Macmillan -15% Schizophrenia Schizophrenia is a unique project reflecting the contribution that Robin M.

  19. 19. 20 DOSTĘPNE | PSYCHOLOGIA The Complex Mind The dominant approach of the last century to behaviour was 'associationism' - reducing the complexity of behaviour to the homogeneous strengthening and weakening of simple connections between stimuli and responses. Chomsky's devastating critique of this account of human language in the 1960s, resulted in a cease fire with human's allowed 'cognitive minds' with more expressive machinery, and animals consigned to the graveyard of associations. As messy as all ceasefires, this one left some animal researchers thinking associationism as bad a theory for animals as for people. But the good effect was that there was a broad appreciation that no one discipline would understand the complexities of the mind, and their origins.

  20. 20. 21 DOSTĘPNE | PSYCHOLOGIA The Neuroscience of Freedom and Creativity Professor Joaquin M. Fuster is an eminent cognitive neuroscientist whose research over the last five decades has made fundamental contributions to our understanding of the neural structures underlying cognition and behaviour. This book provides his view on the eternal question of whether we have free will. Based on his seminal work on the functions of the prefrontal cortex in decision- making, planning, creativity, working memory, and language, Professor Fuster argues that the liberty or freedom to choose between alternatives is a function of the cerebral cortex, under prefrontal control, in its reciprocal interaction with the environment. Freedom is therefore inseparable from that circular relationship. The Neuroscience of Freedom and Creativity is a fascinating inquiry into the cerebral foundation of our ability to choose between alternative actions and to freely lead creative plans to their goal. 'Joaquin Fuster is a distinguished pioneer in the exploration of the brain's prefrontal cortex, the regions we depend on for choices and self-control.

Why do some succeed both in life and in business, and others fail? The 'winner effect' is a term used in biology to describe how an animal that has won a few fights against weak opponents is much more likely to win later bouts against stronger contenders. As Ian Robertson reveals, it applies to humans, too. Success changes the chemistry of the brain, making you more focused, smarter, more confident and more aggressive. And the more you win, the more you will go on to win. But the downside is that winning can become physically addictive. By understanding what the mental and physical changes are that take place in the brain of a 'winner', how they happen, and why they affect some people more than others, Robertson explains what makes a winner or a loser - and how we can use the answers to these questions to understand better the behaviour of our business colleagues, employees, family and friends.

  23. 23. 24 NA ZAMÓWIENIE | PSYCHOLOGIA Action, Perception and the Brain Theories of brain evolution stress communication and sociality are essential to our capacity to represent objects as intersubjectively accessible. How did we grow as a species to be able to recognize objects as common, as that which can also be seen in much the same way by others? Such constitution of intersubjectively accessible objects is bound up with our flexible and sophisticated capacities for social cognition - understanding others and their desires, intentions, emotions, and moods - which are crucial to the way human beings live. This book is about contemporary philosophical and neuroscientific perspectives on the relation of action, perception, and cognition as it is lived in embodied and socially embedded experience. This emphasis on embodiment and embeddedness is a change from traditional theories, which focused on isolated, representational, and conceptual cognition.

Speakers and addressees need to contend with these rules when expressing themselves and when trying to comprehend messages. For example, there are on-going competitions between the speaker's interests and the addressee's needs, or between constraints imposed by grammar and those imposed by online processing. These competitions influence a wide variety of systems, including case marking, agreement and word order, politeness forms, lexical choices, and the position of relative clauses. Chapters in the book analyse grammar and usage in adult language as well as first and second language acquisition, and the motivations that drive historical change. Several of the chapters seek explanations for the competitions involved, based on earlier accounts including the Competition Model, Natural Morphology, the functional-typological tradition, and Optimality Theory.

In this book, two experts on the history of science look at the novel ways in which Galileo looked at the heavens through his telescope, and, in the process, emphasised the importance of contrast phenomena and visual resolution for all observations. He also described the senses and perception in terms that found an echo in doctrines advanced by nineteenth century sensory physiologists. In a fascinating and accessible style, Marco Piccolino and Nick Wade analyse the scientific and philosophical work of Galileo Galilei from the particular viewpoint of his approach to the senses (and especially vision) as a means of acquiring trustworthy knowledge about the constitution of the world. For Galileo evidence from the senses was potentially ambiguous, hence reliable information capable of penetrating the complexity of reality could only be obtained by interpreting the sensory data critically.
