  • - Close Encounters with Addiction
    af Gabor Maté
    128,95 kr.

    To heal addiction, you have to go back to the start Featured on Russell Brand s podcast Under the Skin Dr Gabor Mate is one of the world s most revered thinkers on the psychology of addiction. His radical findings based on decades of work with patients challenged by catastrophic drug addiction and mental illness are reframing how we view all human development.In this award-winning modern classic, Gabor Mate takes a holistic and compassionate approach to addiction, whether to alcohol, drugs, sex, money or anything self-destructive. He presents it not as a discrete phenomenon confined to a weak-willed few, but as a continuum that runs through (and even underpins) our society; not as a medical condition , but rather the result of a complex interplay of personal history, emotional development and brain chemistry.Distilling cutting-edge research from around the world, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts avoids glib self-help remedies, instead promoting self-understanding as the first key to healing and wellness. Blending personal stories and science with positive solutions, and written in spellbinding prose, it is a must-read that will change how you see yourself, others and the world.10th anniversary edition, updated with new chapter on the Opiod crisis

    'It all starts with waking up... to what our bodies are expressing and our minds are suppressing'Western countries invest billions in healthcare, yet mental illness and chronic diseases are on a seemingly unstoppable rise. Nearly 70% of Americans are now on prescription drugs. So what is 'normal' when it comes to health?Over four decades of clinical experience, renowned physician and addiction expert Dr Gabor Maté has seen how health systems neglect the role that trauma exerts on our bodies and our minds. Medicine often fails to treat the whole person, ignoring how today's culture stresses our bodies, burdens our immune systems and undermines emotional balance.Now, in his most ambitious and urgent book yet, Dr Maté connects the dots between our personal suffering and the pressures of modern-day living - with disease as a natural reflection of a life spent growing further and further apart from our true selves. But, with deep compassion, he also shows us a pathway to health and healing.Filled with stories of people in the grip of illness or in the triumphant wake of recovery, this life-affirming book, co-written with his son Daniel, proves true health is possible - if we are willing to reconnect with each other and our authentic selves.

  • - Forældre er vigtigere end jævnaldrende
    af Gabor Maté & Gordon Neufeld
    334,95 kr.

    Gordon Neufeld og Gabor Matés moderne klassiker og internationale bestseller fra 2004 (Hold on to Your Kids. Why Parents Need to Matter more than Peers) er en åben invitation til alle forældre, der ønsker at opdrage deres barn på en måde, så den vigtige RELATION – nemlig den til forældre og andre vigtige voksne i barnets liv – altid er i fokus. Men bogen er ikke kun skrevet med henblik på forældreopgaven. Alle med interesse for børn og unge, ja, alle der arbejder professionelt i feltet, kan høste uvurderlige erkendelser gennem bogen. Og i særlig grad alle unge studerende inden for felter, der beskæftiger sig med dette arbejde – pædagoger, lærere, psykologer, sagsbehandlere, socialrådgivere, sygeplejersker, læger etc. Bogen er banebrydende inden for pædagogisk forståelse og handling og oplagt som fast pensum på en lang række studier. Gordon Neufelds sigte med bogen er at hjælpe os til at genskabe den intuitive viden om de vigtige relationer, som danner grundlag for barnets mulighed for at blomstre og udfolde sit potentiale som menneske. Udgangspunktet for Neufelds paradigme er hans helt særlige tilknytningsmodel. Tilknytningsmodellen beskriver 6 trin, som ideelt set skulle udfolde sig i barnets første 6 til 9 leveår. Den dybeste tilknytning er til eksempel den, der ligger til grund for, at det kan lykkes for et menneske at bryde den sociale arv. Tilknytningsmodellen åbner døre til en dyb indsigt i menneskenaturen, og med den som baggrund bliver barnets modningsprocesser forståelige, og dermed alt det, der befordrer disse, og alt det, der kan komme i vejen. Når vi ved, hvad der kunne være, har vi mulighed for at se, hvad der mangler, og finde vejen tilbage.Gordon Neufeld tager i bogen armtag med mange aspekter af vores samfund, som ikke er befordrende for vores børn. Han er på børnenes side, og han er på forældrenes side, og de voksne med ansvar for børns udvikling. Bogen har siden dens udgivelse i 2004 været en øjenåbner for forældre og folk i hele verden, der på den ene eller anden måde arbejder professionelt med børn, og den er p.t. oversat til 25 sprog. I genudgivelsen fra 2013 har Gordon Neufeld tilføjet 2 kapitler (som også er med i den danske udgivelse) om opdragelse i den digitale tidsalder. Han kommer her ind på, hvad det er for stærke kræfter, vi har med at gøre i de digitale medier, og hvordan vi kan gennemskue deres påvirkning på vores børns udvikling, så vi kan navigere i dette helt nye felt og styre det, der skal styres, som ansvarlige voksne, i stedet for at børn og unge bliver kørt over af det.Bogen er skrevet i et klart, tilgængeligt og fortællende sprog, hvor forfatteren tager os med ind i hverdagssituationer med børn og forældre, som de fleste af os sikkert kan genkende. Bogens indhold er relevant for forældre til børn i alle aldre, fra småbørn og helt frem til voksne børn. Oversættelsen fra canadisk til dansk varetages af Grete Lyngdorf, der gennem tretten år har formidlet Gordon Neufelds materiale til danske forældre og professionelle gennem NEUFELD KURSER I DANMARK.

    Praise For WHEN THE BODY SAYS NO"e;Once thought to be in the domain of genes, our health and behavior have recently been revealed to be controlled by our perception of the environment and our beliefs.

A must-read for health professionals and lay readers seeking awareness of how the mind controls health."e;-- Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., cellular biologist"e;The interviewees' stories are often touching and haunting. . . . Mate carefully explains the biological mechanisms that are activated when stress and trauma exert a powerful influence on the body, and he backs up his claims with compelling evidence from the field. . . . Both the lay and specialist reader will be grateful for the final chapter, 'The Seven A's of Healing,' in which Mate presents an open formula for healing and the prevention of illness from hidden stress."e;-- Quill & Quire"e;Medical science searches high and low for the causes of cancer, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and a host of other conditions.
