Psychology: The Workplace Psychology Guide

The Simple Guide to Workplace Psychology Tips for the Employee

Psychology has always been a lot more than a university course. In fact we use the techniques and theories of psychology in our day to day work. Sometimes we do it subconsciously through habit or conditioning. One of the most important parts of our life is work. We spend close to 8 hours a day on the job. When you consider the time spent on commuting and sleep; work seems to be this thing that envelops virtually everything we do. It is a serious business because that is where we earn an income to buy essentials like food, shelter and clothing. At the same time work is also the place where we meet different types of people. Many have met their future spouses and countless friends on the job. It is therefore very important to be able to adjust well to the workplace and all its challenges.

This book is conceived as a simple guide on how an employee can use the theories of psychology in their day to day life. It is not meant to be a definitive discussion of the theories of psychology. In any case it would take thousands of books to completely cover them. Instead this books gives you the reader simple tips and insights that you can use to get on better with your colleagues. The other benefit is that if you are a good colleague then chances are that you will find it easier to progress in your career. The book is divided into nine chapters which tackle specific theories in psychology and then try to apply them to the day to day situations which various workers find themselves in. This book can work for you at any level and any job. It does not matter whether you are a nurse, engineer, politician, miner or a multitude of other things. The book is equally applicable to the top executives and the lowliest people in the chain of command.

Rethinking Interdisciplinarity across the Social Sciences and Neurosciences (Neuroscience Intersections)

This book offers a provocative account of interdisciplinary research across the neurosciences, social sciences and humanities. Setting itself against standard accounts of interdisciplinary 'integration,' and rooting itself in the authors' own experiences, the book establishes a radical agenda for collaboration across these disciplines. Rethinking Interdisciplinarity does not merely advocate interdisciplinary research, but attends to the hitherto tacit pragmatics, affects, power dynamics, and spatial logics in which that research is enfolded. Understanding the complex relationships between brains, minds, and environments requires a delicate, playful and genuinely experimental interdisciplinarity, and this book shows us how it can be done. This book is open access under a CC-BY license and funded by The Wellcome Trust.

Hope for the Hollow: A Thirty-Day Inside-Out Makeover for Women Recovering from Eating Disorders

Hungry for Hope? Approximately eleven million Americans suffer from anorexia, bulimia, and compulsive overeating. Among those not counted in that statistic are those who fall outside of the diagnostic criteria but struggle daily with a poor body image, a fear of gaining weight, and a sense of being out of control. Not merely worldly vanity, these struggles are very much an issue among women in the church, who love and serve the Creator, while struggling to appreciate and care for their bodies as His creation. Hope for the Hollow is a practical, relevant devotional/ journal guide to gently encourage and inspire daughters of God to dare to believe what their Creator says about them, and to replace the lies of their enemy with the glorious, revealing truth of God's word as it applies to their bodies, the temples of the Holy Spirit. Each of the thirty devotionals includes an applicable passage of Scripture dealing with underlying themes of eating disorders such as guilt, shame, control, fear, and pride. Drawing upon her own experiences as a believer recovering from anorexia, Jena candidly shares her heart and relays the lessons she has learned along the way. Jena plans to promote this devotional through her blog, Facebook pages, twitter and via her speaking engagements at churches, women's groups, treatment centers, and recovery groups. Few devotionals have been published dealing specifically with eating disorders and the issues they present. This is a war that is fought and won with both God's word and loving, heart-penetrating encouragement, both of which speak from the pages of Hope for the Hollow.

Children and the media vs kids and technology (Humanity)

Kids and Technology - Nature vs Nurture?

How to keep screen time in check for kids' health and development

Bottom of Form

Edited by Hearts & Minds Media 2017

It seems these days that kids are operating electronic devices such as smartphones practically moments after being born. Just take a look around any local playgroup or playground: You'll be likely to see kids as young as 2 or even younger clutching mom or dad's phone to play games or view videos. When it comes to technology, kids are not only starting to use it at a younger age but are using it in more varied situations, both at home and at school.

Children and the Media

The media machine is changing daily utilising new technologies to stimulate, surprise and saturate not only older but the next generation on new methods of living and experiencing life. It is a force to be reckoned with, with the ability to influence actions and behaviour at least through modelling behaviour leading to desensitisation towards sex, violence with the verbal content of this new medium. The BBFC for example is the UK watchdog towards inappropriate content in film and TV which refrains from following its own standards of content rarely cutting or removing a film from the UK market (10 films only banned in the past 10 years; BBFC, 2017)

From the poem by Edmund Blake, Muggeridge quotes:

This Life's dim windows of the soul

Distorts the Heavens from Pole to Pole,

And leads you to believe a lie,

When you see with, not through, the eye.1

Television is the special target of Muggeridge's criticism. He contends that the tube induces us to "see with the eyes" to secular fantasy and dissuades us from "seeing through the eyes" to spiritual reality.

Thus did Western Man decide to abolish himself, creating his own boredom out of his own affluence, his own vulnerability out of his own strength, his own impotence out of his own erotomania, himself blowing the trumpet that brought the walls of his own city tumbling down, and having convinced himself that he was too numerous, labored with pill and scalpel and syringe to make himself fewer. Until at last, having educated himself into imbecility, and polluted and drugged himself into stupefaction, he keeled over--a weary, battered old brontosaurus--and became extinct."

- Malcolm Muggeridge, Vintage Muggeridge: Religion and Society

"If God is dead, somebody is going to have to take his place. It will be megalomania or erotomania, the drive for power or the drive for pleasure, the clenched fist or the phallus, Hitler or Hugh Hefner."

- Malcolm Muggeridge
