Synopsis

Redirect The Surprising New Science of Psychological Change by Timothy Wilson

A problem shared is a problem halved? Not necessarily...Talking about our problems isn't always a good idea. World-renowned psychologist Timothy Wilson reveals how this, and many other conventional therapies and interventions, can often do us more harm than good. Presenting the very latest research, Wilson argues that the key to transforming our lives lies simply in learning to redirect the stories we tell ourselves. His revolutionary approach reveals how reshaping our internal narratives can increase our personal well-being and transform our understanding of human behaviour - our narratives can change surprisingly quickly if tweaked in the right way. How can we best recover from trauma? Why might some sex education result in more teen pregnancies? Why will most self-help books leave you worse off? Redirect proposes a radical new view of the world. It also offers a range of practical advice - that has, crucially, been tested scientifically and found to have real results - that can show us the way to social progress.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.
