Aggression is a complex social behaviour with multiple causes. In psychology, as well as other social and behavioural sciences, aggression refers to behaviour between members of the same species that is intended to cause pain or harm. Aggression takes a variety of forms among humans and can be physical, mental, or verbal. Aggression should not be confused with assertiveness however, although the terms are often used interchangeably. There are two broad categories of aggression. These include hostile, affective, or retaliatory aggression and instrumental, predatory, or goal-oriented aggression. Empirical research indicates that there is a critical difference between the two, both psychologically and physiologically. Some research indicates that people with tendencies toward affective aggression have lower IQs than those with tendencies toward predatory aggression. If only considering physical aggression, males tend to be more aggressive than females. This new book gathers the latest research from around the world in this field.

What if you thought you had died, only to wake up to find that your brain and eyes had been transplanted into someone else's body? When Lucy, a teen diagnosed with terminal cancer wakes up cancer-free, it should be a dream come true. But faced with a life she didn't choose and trapped in a new body, Lucy must face the biggest question of all . . . How far would you go to save the one you love?
Twenty years after the 1994 genocide, Rwandans are still troubled by what made the violence possible and how they can know it will not recur. This study uncovers how Rwandan visions of peace and modern nationhood concern not only political reform or economic development, but also transformations of the self. The aspiration to become "peaceful selves" finds expression in cultural ideas and everyday practices, in state and popular rhetoric. However, the question of what kind of person one ought to be is fraught with contradictions and raises difficult questions about the nature of post-genocide belonging and the moral order.
An introvert salesperson? Isn't that an oxymoron? Not at all. Sales is a skill just like any other, which anyone can learn and master--including the introvert who is more comfortable alone than in the sales field. As with finding any type of success, it's all about learning how to leverage one's own natural strengths.Extroverts are rarely short on words, and their conversations and sales pitches never feel sales-y to them. The world of sales just comes natural to the extrovert. But introverts aren't comfortable with traditional tactics like aggressively pushing a product or talking over a customer's objections. What makes The Introvert's Edge so powerful and practical is that it explains how the introvert can feel equally comfortable and sincere in the sales world as well--without changing who they are!Within these pages, the introvert can learn how to find natural confidence, prepare for every situation, sidestep objections that would otherwise expose their uncomfortableness, ask for the sale (without asking), profit from a process that doesn't rely on personality, and simply enjoy sales!The introverted salesperson is no longer an oxymoron--it's a recipe for success!
*Shortlisted for the JQ Wingate Literary Prize, 2017* 'Belonging' is both a fundamental human emotion and a political project that affects millions. Since its foundation in 1957, the European Union has encouraged people across its member states to feel a sense of belonging to one united community, with mixed results. Today, faced with the fracturing impacts of the migration crisis, the threat of terrorism and rising tensions within countries, governments within and outside the EU seek to impose a different kind of belonging on their populations through policies of exclusion and bordering. In this collection of original essays, a diverse group of novelists, journalists and academics reflect on their own individual senses of European belonging. In creative and disarming ways, they confront the challenges of nationalism, populism, racism and fundamentalism. Do I Belong? offers fascinating insights into such questions as: Why fear growing diversity? Is there a European identity? Who determines who belongs? Is a single sense of 'good' belonging in Europe dangerous? This collection provides a unique commentary on an insufficiently understood but defining phenomenon of our age. Authors include: Zia Haider Rahman, Goran Rosenberg, Isolde Charim, Hanno Loewy, Diana Pinto, Nira Yuval-Davis and Doron Rabinovici among others.
In 1994 Allan Schore published his groundbreaking book, Affect Regulation and the Origin of the Self, in which he integrated a large number of experimental and clinical studies from both the psychological and biological disciplines in order to construct an overarching model of social and emotional development. Since then he has expanded his regulation theory in more than two dozen articles and essays covering multiple disciplines, including neuroscience, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, developmental psychology, attachment, and trauma. Affect Dysregulation and Disorders of the Self contains writings on developmental affective neuroscience and developmental neuropsychiatry. It is absolutely essential reading for all clinicians, researchers, and general readers interested in normal and abnormal human development.
The author has revised this popular experiential workbook by adding Carl Jung and Karen Horney to his cast of major personality theorists - Freud, Adler, Erikson, Bandura, Allport, Maslow and Rogers - who provide the context within which students explore aspects of their own private experience. In a focused and disciplined way, through carefully developed exercises, projects, and group activities, students are given the means to relate abstract theories and concepts to their own personality development and experience. The exercises have been devised to attract students' thoughtful attention. Many of them deal with private aspects of students' lives and are designed to be completed individually out of the classroom and reviewed by the instructor alone. There are also some classroom exercises that involve working with peers in small-group discussions. These latter activities draw upon those personal experiences that most students are enthusiastic about sharing.
This study elaborates and defends an account of the experience of self-identity that underwrites the possibility of authenticity (being true to oneself), only accessible with humility.
This textbook takes a Complex Systems Theory approach to examine individual differences between learners and the potential impact of these variables on the process of acquiring a second language. The authors argue that individual variables cannot provide the complete picture, and that they must instead be understood as part of an interconnected and dynamic system of different factors in order to be useful in a language learning context. Written in an accessible style and suitable for final-year undergraduate and Masters-level students, the book includes clear definitions of key terms, discussion questions for classroom use, practical exercises and activities, and examples of real empirical studies that students and teachers can replicate in their own contexts. This textbook will be of interest to students taking TESOL and SLA courses and modules, as well as those on broader Applied Linguistics programmes.
In this newly reformatted and updated volume, discover the magic of Meta-Programs as perceptual lens and the power of figuring out where others are coming from. Everyday we spend time mind-reading and second-guessing the people with whom we live, work, associate, negotiate, parent, and love. We guess at their intentions, motives, future actions, beliefs, and more. Figuring Out People takes the reader far beyond mere personality typing to being able to recognize and work with each person's uniqueness. Each meta-program provides another way in which we differ as well as another way to create meta-rapport for closer relationships and more in depth understanding and appreciation.
This volume reveals how social-cognitive structures and processes
serve as a basis of personality coherence--the unique patterns of
experience and action that make each of us who we are. In doing so,
the volume demonstrates how a personality theory can be built on
psychology's broader foundation of knowledge about cognitive and
affective systems and the interactions between persons and the
sociocultural environment. Presenting novel theoretical
developments from leaders in personality, social, cultural, and
developmental psychology, chapters show how personality coherence
arises from the ways people assign meaning to social information,
gain causal agency over their lives through self-knowledge and
self-reflective processes, and organize multiple life events within
a framework of goals and life tasks. The book stands as the most
definitive presentation to date of the social-cognitive theories of
Professor Keirsey is a long time clinical psychologist of the gestalt-field systems school. After 30 years of treating hundreds of teaching, parenting, marriage, and management problems, Dr. Keirsey now challenges the reader to "Abondon the Pygmalion Project", that endless and fruitless attempt to change the Other into a carbon copy of Oneself.
How does using FaceBook affect your personality? Do selfies show the real you? You'll find the answers in THEORIES OF PERSONALITY, 11th Edition, which gives you a clear and cogent introduction to this dynamic field. Updated with new research and findings, this popular text discusses major theorists who represent psychoanalytic, neopsychoanalytic, lifespan, trait, humanistic, cognitive, behavioral, and social-learning approaches, while demonstrating the influence of events in theorists' lives on the development of their theories. It reviews current work on selected facets of personality including locus of control, sensation seeking, learned helplessness, optimism-pessimism, and positive psychology, and explores how race, gender, and cultural issues play a part in the study of personality and in personality assessment. The final chapter integrates topics explored in previous chapters and suggests conclusions that can be drawn from the many theorists' work.
Written by the author of 'Emotional Intelligence', this is an analysis of the ways in which people deceive themselves. Daniel Goleman draws on evidence of all kinds - from brain function to social dynamics - the reveal how people distort their most intimate relationships, their day-to-day lives by burying painful insights and memories. This self-deception is the human means of psychological self-preservation, the currency of survival in which all of society transacts. But although self-deception is sometimes benign, it can also be dangerous and life-diminishing. This work illuminates and raises challenging questions about a subject central to people's psychological existence.
"Who am I?" "How do I fit in the world around me?" This revealing
and innovative book demonstrates that each of us discovers what is
true and meaningful, in our lives and in ourselves, through the
creation of personal myths. Challenging the traditional view that
our personalities are formed by fixed, unchanging characteristics,
or by predictable stages through which every individual travels,
"The Stories We Live By" persuasively argues that we "are" the
stories we tell. Informed by extensive scientific research--yet
highly readable, engaging, and accessible--the book explores how
understanding and revising our personal stories can open up new
possibilities for our lives.
Based on Dr. Caroline Leaf's The Perfect You, this nine week curriculum helps participants discover and harness the unique, God-wired thinking pattern that shapes how they make choices--so they can live out their purpose and achieve true success.
There are a lot of personality and intelligence tests out there designed to label you and put you in a particular box. But Dr. Caroline Leaf says there's much more to you than a personality profile can capture. In fact, you cannot be categorized!
Based on her powerful book, this study takes participants through seven steps to unlock their unique design--the brilliantly original way they think, feel, relate, and make choices--freeing them from comparison, envy, and jealousy, which destroy brain tissue. Participants learn to be aware of what's going on in their own minds and bodies, to lean in to their own experiences rather than trying to forcefully change them, and to redefine what success means to them. Released from the suffocating box of expectations, they'll embrace their true identity and develop a clear sense of divine purpose in their lives. Dr. Caroline Leaf is the author of Switch On Your Brain, Think and Eat Yourself Smart, and The Perfect You, amongst many other books and journal articles. Since 1981, she has researched the science of thought and the mind-brain connection as it relates to thinking, learning, renewing the mind, gifting, and potential. Dr. Leaf practiced clinically for 25 years and is an international and national conference speaker on topics relating to optimal brain performance such as learning, mindful thinking, stress, toxic thoughts, male/female brain differences, mindful eating and much more. She is frequently interviewed on TV stations around the globe, has published many books and scientific journal articles, and has her own TV show, The Dr. Leaf Show. Leaf and her husband, Mac, live with their four children in Dallas and Los Angeles.
School absenteeism is a pervasive and difficult problem faced by mental health and school-based professionals. Even in mild forms, school absenteeism has been shown to be a significant risk factor for social, behavioral, and academic problems in middle childhood and adolescence, as well as psychiatric, economic, and occupational difficulties in adulthood. Problematic absenteeism has been examined for decades by professionals of many different disciplines, leading to a considerably fractured literature. Managing School Absenteeism at Multiple Tiers provides an integrative strategy for preventing, assessing, and addressing cases of youth with school absenteeism at multiple levels of severity and complexity. Dr. Christopher Kearney presents a multi-tiered framework based on prevention (Tier 1), early intervention for emerging cases (Tier 2), and more extensive intervention and systemic strategies for severe cases (Tier 3). Each tier is based on empirically supported strategies from the literature, and emphasis is placed on specific, implementable recommendations. This approach is based on a Response to Intervention model that has emerged as a powerful guide to prevention, assessment, and treatment of social and academic problems in schools. Response to Intervention is based upon tenets that parallel developments in the school absenteeism literature: (1) a proactive focus on early identification of learning and behavior problems and immediate, effective intervention, (2) universal, targeted, and intensive interventions, (3) frequent progress monitoring, (4) functional behavioral assessment, (5) empirically supported treatment procedures and protocols to reduce obstacles to academic achievement (including absenteeism), and (6) a team-based approach for implementation. This user-friendly, practical guide will be useful to mental health professionals, school administrators, guidance counselors, social workers and psychologists, as well as others who address kids with problematic absenteeism such as pediatricians and probation officers.
Ideally a resource for clinicians and therapists, this book describes the value of using a psychoanalytic theoretical framework to explore and understand behavioural disturbance in patients diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD). It blends both theoretical and practical treatment considerations in working with BPD, using detailed case study presentations to demonstrate this material. It also provides a description of diagnostic procedures and the importance of recognising the transference relationship with patients diagnosed with this disorder. The psychoanalytic framework of moral masochism by Freud (1924/1961) is used to explore the unconscious function of deliberate self-harm behaviours. Case illustrations are offered to highlight the process by which to understand the patient's unconscious responses throughout treatment, and to appreciate the patient's experience of clinical care when a consideration of these unconscious processes is disregarded or not adequately acknowledged. Specific discussion is then offered on appreciating the role of the clinician in the therapeutic alliance in terms of the patient's prognosis. The role of the transference in the repetition of the patient's trauma, and therefore the occurrence of recurrent deliberate self-harm episodes during treatment, is then considered in detail.
Inner speech, also known as self-talk, is distinct from ordinary language. It has several functions and structures, from everyday thinking and self-regulation to stream of consciousness and daydreaming. Inner Speech and the Dialogical Self provides a comprehensive analysis of this internal conversation that people have with themselves to think about problems, clarify goals, and guide their way through life. Norbert Wiley shrewdly emphasizes the semiotic and dialogical features of the inner speech, rather than the biological and neurological issues. He also examines people who lack control of their inner speech-such as some autistics and many emotionally disturbed people who use trial and error rather than self-control-to show the power and effectiveness of inner speech. Inner Speech and the Dialogical Self takes a humanistic social theorist approach to its topic. Wiley acknowledges the contributions of inner speech theorists, Lev Vygotsky and Mikhail Bakhtin, and addresses the classical pragmatism of Charles Sanders Peirce, John Dewey, William James, and George Herbert Mead to show the range and depth of this largely unexplored field.
