Bedlam: An intimate journey into America's mental health crisis Audiobook

Bedlam: An intimate journey into America's mental health crisis

Author: Kenneth Paul Rosenberg Narrator: Kenneth Paul Rosenberg Release Date: October 2019

A psychiatrist and award-winning documentarian sheds light on the mental-health-care crisis in the United States. When Dr. Kenneth Rosenberg trained as a psychiatrist in the late 1980s, the state mental hospitals, which had reached peak occupancy in the 1950s, were being closed at an alarming rate, with many patients having nowhere to go. There has never been a more important time for this conversation, as one in five adults--40 million Americans--experiences mental illness each year. Today, the largest mental institution in the United States is the Los Angeles County Jail, and the last refuge for many of the 20,000 mentally ill people living on the streets of Los Angeles is L.A. County Hospital. There, Dr. Rosenberg begins his chronicle of what it means to be mentally ill in America today, integrating his own moving story of how the system failed his sister, Merle, who had schizophrenia. As he says, 'I have come to see that my family's tragedy, my family's shame, is America's great secret.' Dr. Rosenberg gives readers an inside look at the historical, political, and economic forces that have resulted in the greatest social crisis of the twenty-first century. The culmination of a seven-year inquiry, Bedlam is not only a rallying cry for change, but also a guidebook for how we move forward with care and compassion, with resources that have never before been compiled, including legal advice, practical solutions for parents and loved ones, help finding community support, and information on therapeutic options.

Better with Age: The Psychology of Successful Aging Audiobook

Better with Age: The Psychology of Successful Aging

Author: Alan D. Castel, Ph.D. Narrator: Chris Sorensen Release Date: October 2019

Age is an important number, but it can also be deceiving. After forty, most people say they feel younger than their years, some lie about their age, and many attempt to hide the signs of growing old. Better with Age addresses the many myths and paradoxes about the aging process. Although most people think of their later years in terms of decline, they can be one of the best times in life. This book presents the latest scientific research about the psychology of aging, coupled with insights from those who have succeeded in doing it well, such as Maya Angelou, Bob Newhart, Jared Diamond, John Glenn, and John Wooden. We are all aging, and many people are concerned about what to expect with advancing years. Retirement, happiness, and brain health are some of the many topics covered in this book. Better with Age shows what we can do now, at any stage in life, to make sure we enjoy old age.

I Wanted Fries with That: How to Ask for What you Want and Get What You Need Audiobook

I Wanted Fries with That: How to Ask for What you Want and Get What You Need

Author: Amy Fish Narrator: Andrea Gallo Release Date: October 2019

At some point in our lives, we've all experienced a small injustice - a restaurant botching our lunch order, a business not returning our calls, or a fellow airline passenger squashing us by moving his seat back - and suffered in silence for fear of offending anyone. When we fail to speak up, however, we end up shortchanging ourselves. In I Wanted Fries with That, Amy Fish encourages readers to stand up for themselves by complaining effectively. In her career as a university ombudsman, Fish has dealt with thousands of complaints - some trivial, some serious - and gained actionable insights about what works and what doesn't. Her suggestions will appeal to anyone who wants to speak up and isn't sure where to start, including managers navigating workplace disputes, couples who argue about the same things over and over, and even someone with a friend with bad breath. Illustrating her points with funny real-life stories, Fish reveals pragmatic methods to redress grievances with civility, honesty, and fairness for everyone involved - whether you're trying to right the wrongs of the world or just claim the French fries you ordered.

Addiction, Attachment, Trauma and Recovery: The Power of Connection Audiobook

Addiction, Attachment, Trauma and Recovery: The Power of Connection

Author: Oliver J. Morgan Narrator: James Anderson Foster Release Date: October 2019

Understanding addiction is no longer just about understanding neurons or genes, broken brain functioning, learning, or faulty choices. Oliver J. Morgan provides a fresh take on addiction and recovery by presenting a more inclusive framework than traditional understanding. Cutting-edge work in attachment, interpersonal neurobiology, and trauma is integrated with ecological-systems thinking to provide a consilient and comprehensive picture of addiction. Humans are born into connection and require nourishing relationships for healthy living. Adversities, however, bring fragmentation and create the conditions for ill health. They create vulnerabilities. In order to cope, individuals can turn to alternatives, 'substitute relationships' that ease the pain of disconnection. These can become addictions. Addiction, Attachment, Trauma, and Recovery presents a model, a method, and a mandate. This new focus calls for change in the established ways we think and behave about addiction and recovery. It reorients understanding and clinical practice for mental health and addiction counselors, psychologists, and social workers, as well as for addicts and those who love them.

The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind Audiobook

The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind

Author: Gustave Le Bon Narrator: Glen Reed Release Date: October 2019

Charles-Marie Gustave Le Bon (1841 -1931) was a French polymath who wrote on anthropology, psychology, sociology, medicine and physics. He is best known for his 1895 work 'The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind', which is considered a seminal work of crowd psychology. In the book, Le Bon identifies the primary characteristics of crowd psychology as impulsiveness, irritability, incapacity to reason, the absence of critical judgement, and the exaggeration of feelings. Le Bon claims that an individual immersed for some length of time in a crowd soon finds himself in a special psychological state, which resembles the state in which a hypnotized individual finds himself under the influence of the hypnotizer. One of Le Bon's disturbing insights is that a man descends several rungs in the ladder of civilisation by the mere fact that he forms part of an organised crowd.

When Antidepressants Aren't Enough: Harnessing the Power of Mindfulness to Alleviate Depression Audiobook

When Antidepressants Aren't Enough: Harnessing the Power of Mindfulness to Alleviate Depression

Author: Stuart J. Eisendraft, M.D., Zindel V. Segal Narrator: Graham Winton Release Date: October 2019

For the past seventeen years, Dr. Stuart Eisendrath has piloted research into the therapeutic effects of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) on people experiencing clinical depression. Since then, by helping people recognize that they don't have to change the content of their thoughts but can find relief simply by changing how they relate to their thoughts, Eisendrath has seen dramatic improvements in people's symptoms and quality of life nearly every day. Eisendrath and his team worked for nearly a decade to extend MBCT's reach to sufferers who had not recovered through treatment or who wanted an alternative approach to conventional treatments. Through this program actual, measurable brain changes occur. Easily practiced breath exercises, meditations, and innovative visualizations release readers from what can often feel like the tyranny of their thoughts. Freedom of thought, feeling, and action is the life-altering result.

The Misinformation Age: How False Beliefs Spread Audiobook

The Misinformation Age: How False Beliefs Spread

Author: Cailin O'connor, James Owen Weatherall Narrator: Chelsea Stephens Release Date: September 2019

The social dynamics of 'alternative facts': why what you believe depends on who you know Why should we care about having true beliefs? And why do demonstrably false beliefs persist and spread despite consequences for the people who hold them? Philosophers of science Cailin O'Connor and James Weatherall argue that social factors, rather than individual psychology, are what's essential to understanding the spread and persistence of false belief. It might seem that there's an obvious reason that true beliefs matter: false beliefs will hurt you. But if that's right, then why is it (apparently) irrelevant to many people whether they believe true things or not? In an age riven by 'fake news,' 'alternative facts,' and disputes over the validity of everything from climate change to the size of inauguration crowds, the authors argue that social factors, not individual psychology, are what's essential to understanding the persistence of false belief and that we must know how those social forces work in order to fight misinformation effectively.

Mind in Motion: How Action Shapes Thought Audiobook

Mind in Motion: How Action Shapes Thought

Author: Barbara Tversky Narrator: Cassandra Campbell Release Date: September 2019

An eminent psychologist offers a major new theory of human cognition: movement, not language, is the foundation of thought When we try to think about how we think, we can't help but think of words. Indeed, some have called language the stuff of thought. But pictures are remembered far better than words, and describing faces, scenes, and events defies words. Anytime you take a shortcut or play chess or basketball or rearrange your furniture in your mind, you've done something remarkable: abstract thinking without words. In Mind in Motion, psychologist Barbara Tversky shows that spatial cognition isn't just a peripheral aspect of thought, but its very foundation, enabling us to draw meaning from our bodies and their actions in the world. Our actions in real space get turned into mental actions on thought, often spouting spontaneously from our bodies as gestures. Spatial thinking underlies creating and using maps, assembling furniture, devising football strategies, designing airports, understanding the flow of people, traffic, water, and ideas. Spatial thinking even underlies the structure and meaning of language: why we say we push ideas forward or tear them apart, why we're feeling up or have grown far apart. Like Thinking, Fast and Slow before it, Mind in Motion gives us a new way to think about how--and where--thinking takes place.
