In this New York Times–bestselling book, Dr. Daniel Siegel shows parents how to turn one of the most challenging developmental periods in their children’s lives into one of the most rewarding. Between the ages of twelve and twenty-four, the brain changes in important and, at times, challenging ways. In Brainstorm, Dr. Daniel Siegel busts a number of commonly held myths about adolescence—for example, that it is merely a stage of “immaturity” filled with often “crazy” behavior. According to Siegel, during adolescence we learn vital skills, such as how to leave home and enter the larger world, connect deeply with others, and safely experiment and take risks. Drawing on important new research in the field of interpersonal neurobiology, Siegel explores exciting ways in which understanding how the brain functions can improve the lives of adolescents, making their relationships more fulfilling and less lonely and distressing on both sides of the generational divide.

Im Alter zwischen 12 und 24 Jahren finden tief greifende Veränderungen in den Gehirnen von Jugendlichen statt. Dies äußert sich meist in einem grundlegend veränderten und scheinbar irrationalen Verhalten und bringt die Jugendlichen sowie auch ihre Eltern oft genug an den Rand des Wahnsinns. Aufruhr im Kopf erklärt die wirklichen Vorgänge in den Gehirnen der Pubertierenden und zeigt, dass es sich nicht nur um eine komplizierte, sondern vor allem um eine sehr lebendige Phase im Leben handelt, in der die Weichen für das Erwachsenendasein gestellt werden. Während dieser Zeit eignen sich die Jugendlichen wichtige Fähigkeiten an, verlassen zum ersten Mal ihr Zuhause, lernen, tief gehende Verbindungen mit anderen einzugehen und mit den komplexen Problemen der Welt um sie herum umzugehen. Anhand neuester Erkenntnisse auf dem Gebiet der Neurobiologie beschreibt Siegel auf anschauliche Weise, wie die Funktionen des Gehirns die Beziehungen Heranwachsender erfüllender gestalten und ihr Leben verbessern können – und wie damit die Zeit der Pubertät für alle Beteiligten weniger anstrengend wird. Ein Buch, das Familien nicht nur helfen wird, diese Zeit zu überleben, sondern sogar zu genießen und aus ihr zu lernen.

“Essential reading for anyone interested in understanding and treating traumatic stress and the scope of its impact on society.” —Alexander McFarlane, Director of the Centre for Traumatic Stress Studies A pioneering researcher transforms our understanding of trauma and offers a bold new paradigm for healing in this New York Times bestseller Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; one in five Americans has been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, one of the world’s foremost experts on trauma, has spent over three decades working with survivors. In The Body Keeps the Score, he uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. He explores innovative treatments—from neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yoga—that offer new paths to recovery by activating the brain’s natural neuroplasticity. Based on Dr. van der Kolk’s own research and that of other leading specialists, The Body Keeps the Score exposes the tremendous power of our relationships both to hurt and to heal—and offers new hope for reclaiming lives.

Das neue große Buch des Erfolgsautors und berühmten buddhistischen Lehrers Schlägt man ein grundlegendes Buch über den Buddhismus auf, erwartet man als Erstes den Hinweis auf das allem Leben zugrunde liegende Leiden. Nicht so bei Jack Kornfield. Im Ursprung, schreibt er, liegt die Würde, die unser tiefstes Wesen ausmacht. Sie entstammt unserer Verbundenheit mit allem Lebendigen, die die Wurzel jedes wahrhaftigen Mitgefühls ist. Seine Vision des Buddhismus offenbart ein absolut positives und ermutigendes Menschenbild. Kornfield versteht den Buddhismus als großartiges psychologisches Konzept und nicht als ab- und ausgrenzende Religion. „Das weise Herz“ ist ein machtvolles Buch der Heilung und zugleich eine Laudatio auf Buddha als den größten Heiler. Es widerlegt überzeugend die Auffassung, dass über den 2500 Jahre alten Buddhismus nichts wirklich Neues und Aufregendes mehr geschrieben werden kann. „Das weise Herz“ ist Kornfields Meisterwerk und dürfte bald nach seinem Erscheinen einen Platz unter den zeitlosen Klassikern des Genres behaupten. • Jack Kornfield gehört mit dem Dalai Lama und Thich Nhat Hanh zu den ganz großen buddhistischen Lehrern • Erstmalige Darstellung des Buddhismus als eines großartigen Systems positiver Psychologie

Defining the true meaning of the “d” word (to instruct, not to shout or reprimand), the authors explain how to reach your child, redirect emotions, and turn a meltdown into an opportunity for growth. By doing so, the cycle of negative behavior (and punishment) is essentially brought to a halt, as problem solving becomes a win/win situation. Inside this sanity-saving guide you’ll discover • strategies that help parents identify their own discipline philosophy—and master the best methods to communicate the lessons they are trying to impart • facts on child brain development—and what kind of discipline is most appropriate and constructive at all ages and stages • the way to calmly and lovingly connect with a child—no matter how extreme the behavior—while still setting clear and consistent limits • tips for navigating your child through a tantrum to achieve insight, empathy, and repair • twenty discipline mistakes even the best parents make—and how to stay focused on the principles of whole-brain parenting and discipline techniques Complete with candid stories and playful illustrations that bring the authors’ suggestions to life, No-Drama Discipline shows you how to work with your child’s developing mind, peacefully resolve conflicts, and inspire happiness and strengthen resilience in everyone in the family.

Case examples, along with informative illustrations, are scattered throughout the book to validate, illustrate, and inspire couples along their journey. Clinicians conversant with EFT can use this workbook to extend the effectiveness of their work with couples by giving them structured tasks to work on between sessions. For clinicians training in EFT, the book can guide them in staying focused on the EFT roadmap and illuminate how important change events unfold.
