Untangled

release date: Feb 09, 2016
Untangled
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • An award-winning guide to the sometimes erratic and confusing behavior of teenage girls that explains what’s going on, prepares parents for what’s to come, and lets them know when it’s time to worry. Look for Under Pressure, the companion guide to coping with stress and anxiety among girls, available now. In this sane, highly engaging, and informed guide for parents of daughters, Dr. Damour draws on decades of experience and the latest research to reveal the seven distinct—and absolutely normal—developmental transitions that turn girls into grown-ups, including Parting with Childhood, Contending with Adult Authority, Entering the Romantic World, and Caring for Herself. Providing realistic scenarios and welcome advice on how to engage daughters in smart, constructive ways, Untangled gives parents a broad framework for understanding their daughters while addressing their most common questions, including • My thirteen-year-old rolls her eyes when I try to talk to her, and only does it more when I get angry with her about it. How should I respond? • Do I tell my teen daughter that I’m checking her phone? • My daughter suffers from test anxiety. What can I do to help her? • Where’s the line between healthy eating and having an eating disorder? • My teenage daughter wants to know why I’m against pot when it’s legal in some states. What should I say? • My daughter’s friend is cutting herself. Do I call the girl’s mother to let her know? Perhaps most important, Untangled helps mothers and fathers understand, connect, and grow with their daughters. When parents know what makes their daughter tick, they can embrace and enjoy the challenge of raising a healthy, happy young woman. BOOKS FOR A BETTER LIFE AWARD WINNER “Finally, there’s some good news for puzzled parents of adolescent girls, and psychologist Lisa Damour is the bearer of that happy news. [Untangled] is the most down-to-earth, readable parenting book I’ve come across in a long time.”—The Washington Post “Anna Freud wrote in 1958, ‘There are few situations in life which are more difficult to cope with than an adolescent son or daughter during the attempt to liberate themselves.’ In the intervening decades, the transition doesn’t appear to have gotten any easier which makes Untangled such a welcome new resource.”—The Boston Globe

First Day to Final Grade

release date: Jan 01, 2011
First Day to Final Grade
The third edition of First Day to Final Grade: A Graduate Student’s Guide to Teaching is designed to help new graduate student teaching assistants navigate the challenges of teaching undergraduates. Both a quick reference tool and a fluid read, the book focuses on the “how tos” of teaching, such as setting up a lesson plan, running a discussion, and grading, as well as issues specific to the teaching assistant’s unique role as both student and teacher. This new edition incorporates newer teaching and learning pedagogy. The book has been updated to reflect the role of technology both inside and outside the classroom. In addition, a new chapter has been added that discusses successfully transitioning from being a teaching assistant to being hired as a full-time instructor.

Abnormal Psychology

release date: Jan 01, 2005
Abnormal Psychology
Abnormal Psychology by James Hansell and Lisa Damour bridges the gap between the evolving field of abnormal psychology and the current textbook market. This text is a new, innovative approach to the teaching of abnormal psychology. While covering the latest DSM–IV–TR system and categories, core concepts in abnormal psychology form the backbone of the text. Abnormal Psychology provides an alternative for professors searching for a manageable textbook for their students. Hansell and Damour wrote Abnormal Psychology to help students not get lost in the details of this complex and ever changing field. To achieve this feat, the authors focus on six core concepts that make this field intriguing and appealing to students: The importance of context in defining and understanding abnormality The continuum between normal and abnormal behavior Cultural and historical relativism in defining and classifying abnormality The advantages a nd limitations of diagnoses The principle of multiple causality The connection between mind and body in abnormal behavior Abnormal Psychology is designed to be accessible to the student and easy to use for the instructor. Hansell and Damour have streamlined the traditional table of contents of an abnormal psychology text to a fourteen chapter, affordable text without eliminating important material. For example, research methods are discussed throughout the text, social and legal issues are addressed in the chapters where they are most relevant, and treatment methods are covered in every chapter, not in a separate chapter on psychotherapy.
