  1. Self-Identity after Brain Injury

    'This book represents a seismic shift in thinking about brain injury and its consequences.' - Skye McDonald

    An injury to the brain can affect virtually any aspect of functioning and, at the deepest level, can alter sense of self or the essential qualities that define who we are. In recent years, there has been a growing body of research investigating changes to self in the context of brain injury. Developments in the cognitive and social neurosciences, psychotherapy and neurorehabilitation have together provided a rich perspective on self and identity reformation after brain injury.

  2. Women Voicing Resistance

    Feminist scholars have demonstrated how ‘dominant discourses’ and ‘master narratives’ frequently reflect patriarchal influence, thereby distorting and depoliticizing women’s storying of their own lives. In this groundbreaking volume a number of internationally recognized researchers, working across a range of disciplines, provide a detailed examination of women’s attempts to counter-story their lives when prevailing discourses are unhelpful or, indeed, harmful.

  5. Youth On Religion

    Youth On Religion outlines the findings from a unique large-scale project investigating the meaning of religion to young people in three multi-faith locations. Drawing on survey data from over 10,000 young people with a range of faith positions, as well as a series of fascinating interviews, discussion groups and diary reports involving 160 adolescents, this book examines myriad aspects of their daily lives.

  6. Gender and Development

    Children are born into a world infused with gendered information. An understanding of what it is to be a boy or girl can be critical in forming social relationships, social identities, and learning how to think and behave. Gender and Development is an important new volume that charts how children practice these gendered identities at different ages and in different social contexts

  7. Self Research

    In Self Research, Ian Law outlines and draws together the theoretical, institutional and practice elements of this work, and offers illustrative examples of how different elements of the methodology can be applied in practice.

  8. The Dark Side of Transformational Leadership

    People have been horrified by the story of three women in London who were rescued by the police from what was initially described as a case of ‘slavery.’ It has since emerged that they were part of a small political cult for over 30 years, run by a married couple. Dennis Tourish is Professor of Leadership at Royal Holloway, University of London. His latest book, The Dark Side of Transformational Leadership, explores how manipulative leaders can sometimes exercise total control over their followers. Dennis has been interviewed on all the main UK news programmes including Radio 4’s World at One, Sky News, BBC, ITV and BBC World News, to provide expert commentary on a case that has fascinated and appalled the public.

  9. Historical Tales and National Identity

    Social psychologists argue that people’s past weighs on their present. Consistent with this view, Historical Tales and National Identity outlines a theory and a methodology which provide tools for better understanding the relation between the present psychological condition of a society and representations of its past.

  10. Decolonizing Global Mental Health

    Decolonizing Global Mental Health is a book that maps a strange irony. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Movement for Global Mental Health are calling to ‘scale up’ access to psychological and psychiatric treatments globaly, particularly within the global South. Simultaneously, in the global North, psychiatry and its oftentimes chemical treatments are coming under increased criticism (from both those who take the medication and those in the position to prescribe it).
