Volume two begins with Goethe's theories of affinities, i.e. the chemical reaction view of human life in 1809. This is followed by the history of how the thermodynamic (1876) and quantum (1905) revolutions modernized chemistry such that affinity (the 'force' of reaction) is now viewed as a function of thermodynamic 'free energy' (reaction spontaneity) and quantum 'valency' (bond stabilities). The composition, energetic state, dynamics, and evolution of the human chemical bond A?B is the centerpiece of this process. The human bond is what gives (yields) and takes (absorbs) energy in life. The coupling of this bond energy, driven by periodic inputs of solar photons, thus triggering activation energies and entropies, connected to the dynamical work of life, is what quantifies the human reaction process. This is followed by topics including mental crystallization, template theory, LGBT chemistry, chemical potential, Le Chatelier's principle, Muller dispersion forces, and human thermodynamics.

With an emphasis on promoting self-reliance, autonomy and independence, this exciting new book provides a contemporary and holistic analysis of the childhood resilience. It recognises 'resilience in childhood' as a complex construct, critically deconstructs it by drawing upon a wide range of academic disciplines and practices, and provides an account of the factors that help and hinder the development of resilience during childhood and adolescence. Part I unpacks definitions of resilience and its "construction" over the last 50 years. Part II examines psychological, sociological and neurobiological perspectives that contribute to our understanding of how childhood resilience can be developed and fostered. Part III explores strategies and approaches relating theory to current intervention practice and policy drivers. Application to professional practice within a multi-agency context is explored throughout. Importantly, this book seeks to develop the notion of 'the promise of resilience' and establish the bond between capabilities built up in childhood and the promise of a positive successful future. Efforts to foster and build effective skills that lead to resilience will result in long-lasting abilities to positively navigate through life's challenges and to become the key architect of one's own success in later life.

I Love You Baby sets out to show parents how they can meet the emotional needs of their children, so that they will become happy and well balanced adults. Since adults also have emotional needs, parents are shown how to meet them for one another, so that their relationship will endure until the nurturing of their children is completed.Adult relationships and the rearing of children are based on love and so the book explains the differences between romantic love between parents and the love between parents and their children.Most parents take care of their children’s physical needs very adequately, especially when they are babies and those needs are simple; being fed, kept warm and dry. It is in the area of emotional support that they often fail them, such as providing affirmation, addressing problems and imposing proper discipline. Inadequate parenting is a consequence of parents having virtually no knowledge of how good parenting is achieved because nobody ever told them how it should be done, and they did not learn about it from their own parents. For, unlike other jobs, there is no training and no exam to pass before one becomes a ‘qualified’ parent. This book provides all the information parents will ever need to have a solid partnership and achieve a good standard of parenting. It also encourages prospective mums and dads to face the reality of what can go wrong because of a lack of knowledge. It is written by an author who has spent many years working with voluntary organisations to help troubled adults work through childhood traumas, that, in turn, led Jonathan to devise a course in psychology for parents...which has become I Love You Baby.

Brain Evolution, Language and Psychopathology in Schizophrenia

This book provides a comprehensive review of new developments in the study of language processing and related neural networks in schizophrenia by addressing the complex link between psychopathology, language and evolution at different levels of analysis. Psychopathological symptoms in schizophrenia are mainly characterized by thought and language disorders, which are strictly intertwined. In particular, language is the distinctive dimension of human beings and is ontologically related to brain development. Although normal at the levels of segmental phonology and morphological organization, the speech of patients suffering from schizophrenia is often characterized by flattened intonation and word-finding difficulties. Furthermore, research suggests that the superior temporal gyrus and specific prefrontal areas which support language in humans are altered in people with schizophrenia. Brambilla and Marini bring together international contributors to explore the link between brain evolution and the psychopathological features of schizophrenia, with a focus on language and its neural underpinnings. Divided into three sections the book covers: • brain evolution and language phylogenesis • brain abnormalities in schizophrenia • psychopathology and schizophrenia. This theoretical approach will appeal to professionals including clinical psychologists, cognitive neuroscientists, neuropsychiatrists, neuropsychologists, neurolinguists, and researchers considering the links between brain evolution, language and psychopathology in schizophrenia.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2001 im Fachbereich Psychologie - Entwicklungspsychologie, Note: 1,7, Universität der Künste Berlin, Veranstaltung: HS Wege und Krisen der kindlichen Entwicklung, 3 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Es wird zunächst ein kurzer geschichtlicher Abriss über die Entstehung und Entwicklung der Bindungstheorie gegeben, eng geknüpft an die biographischen Daten ihres Begründers John Bowlby. Im weiteren Verlauf werden dann einige Merkmale aufzeigt, nach denen die Bindung einer Person klassifiziert werden kann. Diese Informationen sind bedeutsam im Hinblick auf eine Lehrertätigkeit, da auch der Lehrer im Umfeld zwischen Institution Schule, Familie und Kind agiert. Einige Ansätze, wie dieses Wissen auch im schulischen Alltag zur Anwendung kommen könnte, beschließen die Arbeit. Die Bindungsforschung ist ein relativ junges Forschungsfeld innerhalb der Psychologie. Die Bindungstheorie beschäftigt sich vorrangig mit dem Bindungsverhalten - und der daraus resultierenden Bindungsqualität - das ein Säugling zu seiner direkten Bezugsperson (Mutter oder Vater) entwickelt. Als grundlegender Zeitraum, in dem sich die Bindungsqualität ausprägt, gilt das erste Lebensjahr des Säuglings. Nach diesem Jahr kann das Bindungsverhalten eines Säuglings bereits als sicher, unsicher oder desorganisiert eingestuft werden.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.
