            The New Science of Learning: How to Learn in Harmony with Your Brain (Trade Paperback / Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)

            Learning to learn is the key skill for tomorrow. This breakthrough book builds the foundation every student needs, from freshman orientation to graduate school. The second edition of this bestselling student text has been considerably updated with the latest findings from cogniti...ve science that further illuminate learning for students, and help them understand what's involved in retaining new information. Beyond updating every chapter with insights from new research, this edition introduces a range of additional topics - such as cognitive load, learned helplessness, and grit - all of which provide students with immediately usable information on how to regulate their lives to maximize learning and fulfillment in college. The premise of this book remains that brain science shows that most students' learning strategies are highly inefficient, ineffective or just plain wrong; and that while all learning requires effort, better learning does not require more effort, but rather effectively aligning how the brain naturally learns with the demands of intellectual work. This book explicates for students what is involved in learning new material, how the human brain processes new information, and what it takes for that information to stick, even after the test. This succinct book explains straightforward strategies for changing how to prepare to learn, engage with course material, and set about improving recall of newly learned material at will. This is not another book about study skills and time management strategies, but instead an easy-to-read description of the research about how the human brain learns in a way that students can put into practice right away.

            What's the one thing a parent can do to make the most difference in the long run? The research is clear- show up! Now the bestselling authors of The Whole-Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline explain what this means over the course of childhood. One of the very best scientific pre...dictors for how any child turns out - in terms of happiness, academic success, leadership skills, and meaningful relationships - is whether at least one adult in their life has consistently shown up for them. In an age of scheduling demands and digital distractions, this might sound like a tall order. But as bestselling authors Daniel Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson reassuringly explain, showing up doesn't take a lot of time, energy, or money. Instead, showing up means offering a quality of presence. And it's simple to provide once you understand the four building blocks of a child's healthy development. Every child needs to feel what Siegel and Bryson call the Four S's- Safe- We can't always insulate a child from injury or hurt feelings. But when we give a child a sense of safe harbour, she will be able to take the needed risks for growth and change. Seen- Truly seeing a child means we pay attention to his emotions - both the positive and the negative - and strive to attune to what's happening in his mind beneath his behaviour. Soothed- Soothing isn't about providing a life of ease, but instead teaching your child how to cope when life gets hard, and showing him that you'll be there with him along the way. Secure- When you reliably provide safety, focus on seeing her, and soothe her in times of need, she will trust in a feeling of secure attachment. And thrive! Based on the latest brain and attachment research, The Power of Showing Up shares stories, scripts, simple strategies, illustrations and tips for honouring the Four S's effectively in all kinds of situations - when our kids are struggling or when they are enjoying success; when we are consoling, disciplining, or arguing with them; and e

            A practical, user-friendly guide for women seeking focus and calm in the midst of life's storms. Overwhelmed by the demands of family, work, and multiple responsibilities, many women find themselves feeling scattered, and distracted. In this eye-opening book, co-founder and CEO o...f the Mindsight Institute Caroline Welch takes readers on a mindfulness journey to help them de-stress and cultivate inner peace. According to Welch, you do not need countless hours sitting in silence to be more present in your life - the key is to practice mindfulness wherever you are and whenever you can. The Gift of Presence guides readers in developing four innate abilities we all possess that will allow us to become more resilient and centred in our lives - even when life is throwing all that it has at us- Presence- the ability to remain firmly in the present moment; to be fully aware of what's happening as it's happening. Purpose- the personal meaning that gets us going and gives direction to our lives. Pivoting- an openness to change that allows you to switch direction if that is what is needed. Pacing- the awareness that it is impossible to do everything we want or need to do all at once; the ability to take it life one step at a time. This life-changing book reveals that you already hold in your hands the keys to a more harmonious life - you simply need to look within. 'The Gift of Presence is a gift for us all - filled with practical insights and fascinating science about the power of mindfulness. By interviewing over one hundred women from diverse backgrounds, Caroline Welch has gathered real life examples of how being present enriches our lives, allows us to find purpose and meaning, to recharge and renew ourselves, and to pivot when we need to course-correct. Well-written and wise, it's a must-read for women of all ages.' -Arianna Huffington, founder of HuffPost and founder & CEO of Thrive Global

            A career-ending injury takes a ballerina from the lofty heights of dance, grounding her into a life where she is forced to confront issues of fetishization, ownership, and brutality to the female body. After a devastating misstep by her dance partner changes the course of her lif...e, life as Ellen knows it comes to an abrupt halt. During her recovery, she recalls a girlhood spent in front of studio mirrors forcibly shaping her body, falling victim to eating disorders in order to retain it, and the slow break down of her body that made literally breaking it much too easy. What isn't easy is accepting a life beyond dance. To do that Ellen must come to terms with the forces that controlled her--the brutally competative world of ballet, the fetishization of the female body, and the sexual assault that led to a severe phobia. Testing how much weight her new identity can hold, embarks upon a life lived on the ground, a new career path, devotion to someone other than herself, love, and learning the delicate balance between the benefits and brutality of pushing yourself to the brink.
