  4. Progressive Community Organizing Reflective Practice in a Globalizing World, 2nd Edition

    "The first edition of Progressive Community Organizing was a splendid and relatively unique community organizing text in a field that has sparked a great deal of recent interest. The second edition, significantly revised and expanded, is even better. My favorite aspects are how Loretta Pyles grounds the study of community-organization practice in the ideas and contexts that shape contemporary efforts. Progressive Community Organizing is especially strong on the importance of theory to practice, an area most books minimize or ignore. This is a highly accessible and informative read, chock full of valuable insights from an experienced and gifted teacher and practitioner." —Robert Fisher, PhD, professor and chair of community organization at the University of Connecticut School of Social Work, and author of Let the People Decide

    "Pyles’s work is a critical text for students, educators, and practitioners of transformative community organizing. Drawing upon theory and practice, Pyles details the multiple levels—individual, organizational and societal—at which transformation must occur to build movements for lasting comprehensive change." —Laura J. Wernick, PhD, assistant professor at the Fordham University School of Social Service

  5. The Coach’s Mind Manual

    The Coach’s Mind Manual combines the latest findings from neuroscience, psychology, and mindfulness research to provide an accessible framework to help coaches and leadership development specialists improve their awareness of the mind, enhancing their coaching practice. Syed Azmatullah explains how such knowledge can be used to guide clients on a journey of self-discovery, facilitating transformational changes and enriching their performance and personal lives.

  6. Living with the Enemy

    Using the latest developments in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) which emphasise mindfulness and acceptance, and including links to downloadable audio exercises and worksheets, this book will show you how you can live better despite your long-term condition. It will teach you to spot the ways of coping that haven’t been working for you, how to make sure that troubling thoughts and unwanted feelings don’t run your life, how to make sense of the changes in your circumstances, to make the most of today and work towards a future that includes more of the things that matter to you.

  7. Life and Loss

    Many clinicians recognize that denying or ignoring grief issues in children leaves them feeling alone and that acknowledging loss is crucial part of a child’s healthy development. Really dealing with loss in productive ways, however, is sometimes easier said than done. For decades, Life and Loss has been the book clinicians have relied on for a full and nuanced presentation of the many issues with which grieving children grapple as well as an honest exploration of the interrelationship between unresolved grief, educational success, and responsible citizenry. 

  8. A Counselor’s Introduction to Neuroscience

    Praise for A Counselor’s Introduction to Neuroscience:

    "This is the book the field of clinical counseling has been waiting for! In the typical writing style of both Dr. McHenrys, it offers readers an easy-to-read, intelligent, comprehensive picture of the dynamic evolution of neuroscience and provides readers with accessible explanations of the exciting and pragmatic methods for working effectively with people seeking growth and enhanced well-being. It is a must-have addition to any mental-health practitioner's assortment of tools."

    —Kathryn MacCluskie, PhD, Cleveland State University, USA

  9. Mind, Brain and the Path to Happiness

    Mind, Brain and the Path to Happiness presents a contemporary account of traditional Buddhist mind training and the pursuit of wellbeing and happiness in the context of the latest research in psychology and the neuroscience of meditation.

    Following the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of Dzogchen, the book guides the reader through the gradual steps in transformation of the practitioner’s mind and brain on the path to advanced states of balance, genuine happiness and wellbeing.

  10. A Special Scar

    Every 85 minutes someone in the UK takes their own life and the suicide rate is currently the highest since 2004. Society oftentimes reacts with unease, fear and even disapproval but what happens to those bereaved by a self-inflicted death? The reasons leading someone to take their own life are complex, and the bereavement reactions of survivors of suicide can also be complex, including shame, guilt, sadness and the effects of trauma, stigma and social isolation.

    A Special Scar looks in detail at the impact of suicide and offers practical help for survivors, relatives and friends of people who have taken their own life.
