The Feeling of What Happens: Body and Emotion in the Making of Consciousness

The Feeling of What Happens: Body and Emotion in the Making of Consciousness Lowest new price: $6.40
Lowest used price: $1.57
List price: $16.95
Author: Antonio Damasio

The publication of this book is an event in the making. All over the world scientists, psychologists, and philosophers are waiting to read Antonio Damasio's new theory of the nature of consciousness and the construction of the self. A renowned and revered scientist and clinician, Damasio has spent decades following amnesiacs down hospital corridors, waiting for comatose patients to awaken, and devising ingenious research using PET scans to piece together the great puzzle of consciousness. In his bestselling Descartes' Error, Damasio revealed the critical importance of emotion in the making of reason. Building on this foundation, he now shows how consciousness is created. Consciousness is the feeling of what happens-our mind noticing the body's reaction to the world and responding to that experience. Without our bodies there can be no consciousness, which is at heart a mechanism for survival that engages body, emotion, and mind in the glorious spiral of human life. A hymn to the possibilities of human existence, a magnificent work of ingenious science, a gorgeously written book, The Feeling of What Happens is already being hailed as a classic.

    Emotional Design: Why We Love (or Hate) Everyday Things

    Emotional Design: Why We Love (or Hate) Everyday Things Lowest new price: $8.00
    Lowest used price: $1.99
    List price: $17.99
    Author: Don Norman
    Brand: Basic Books AZ

    Why attractive things work better and other crucial insights into human-centered design

    Emotions are inseparable from how we humans think, choose, and act. In Emotional Design, cognitive scientist Don Norman shows how the principles of human psychology apply to the invention and design of new technologies and products. In The Design of Everyday Things, Norman made the definitive case for human-centered design, showing that good design demanded that the user's must take precedence over a designer's aesthetic if anything, from light switches to airplanes, was going to work as the user needed. In this book, he takes his thinking several steps farther, showing that successful design must incorporate not just what users need, but must address our minds by attending to our visceral reactions, to our behavioral choices, and to the stories we want the things in our lives to tell others about ourselves. Good human-centered design isn't just about making effective tools that are straightforward to use; it's about making affective tools that mesh well with our emotions and help us express our identities and support our social lives. From roller coasters to robots, sports cars to smart phones, attractive things work better. Whether designer or consumer, user or inventor, this book is the definitive guide to making Norman's insights work for you.

    Author: Stanley Keleman
    Brand: Brand: Center Press (Westlake Village, CA)

    "Keleman's approach to somatic therapy follows on naturally from the identity of attitude and form. Accordingly, our emotions and thoughts are intimately connected to our muscular gestures. Our postures and form, our mobility and motility recount our emotional and cognitive history. We therefore organise our own emotional and mental realities. And here is the nub of it; if we organise our realities, we can disorganise and reorganise our muscular emotional pattern. This then is the central feature of Keleman's work today.

    The Body Remembers Volume 2: Revolutionizing Trauma Treatment

    The Body Remembers Volume 2: Revolutionizing Trauma Treatment Lowest new price: $25.78
    Lowest used price: $26.42
    List price: $35.00
    Author: Babette Rothschild

    Challenging the notion that clients with PTSD must revisit, review, and process their memories to recover from trauma.

    The Body Remembers, Volume 2: Revolutionizing Trauma Treatment continues the discussion begun more than fifteen years ago with the publication of the best-selling and beloved The Body Remembers: The Psychophysiology of Trauma and Trauma Treatment.

    This new book is grounded in the belief that the most important goal for any trauma treatment is to improve the quality of life of the client. Therefore, the first prerequisite is that the client be reliably stable and feel safe in his or her daily life as well as the therapy situation.

    To accomplish this, Babette Rothschild empowers both therapists and clients by expanding trauma treatment options. For clients who prefer not to review memories, or are unable to do so safely, new and expanded strategies and principles for trauma recovery are presented. And for those who wish to avail themselves of more typical trauma memory work, tools to make trauma memory resolution even safer are included.

    Being able to monitor and modulate a trauma client’s dysregulated nervous system is one of the practitioner’s best lines of defense against traumatic hyperarousal going amok―risking such consequences as dissociation and decompensation. Rothschild clarifies and simplifies autonomic nervous system (ANS) understanding and observation with her creation of an original full color table that distinguishes six levels of arousal. Included in this table (and the discussion that accompanies it) is a new and essential distinction between trauma-induced hypoarousal and the low arousal that is caused by lethargy or depression.

    The full color ANS table is also available from W.W. Norton as a laminated desk reference and a wall poster suitable for framing so this valuable therapeutic tool will always be at hand.

    Principles and theory come alive through multiple demonstration therapy transcripts that illustrate:

    • Stabilizing a new client who consistently dissociates due to persistent trauma flashbacks
    • Clarifying and keeping therapeutic contracts
    • Identifying and implementing hidden somatic resources for stabilization
    • Easing transition from Phase 1 to Phase 2 trauma treatment via trauma memory outlining
    • Utilizing good memories and somatic markers as antidotes to traumatic memory

    Combining an authoritative yet personal voice, Rothschild gives clinicians the space to recognize where they may have made mistakes―by sharing her own!―as well as a road map toward more effective practice in the future. This book is absolutely essential reading for anyone working with those who have experienced trauma.
