Michael J. Silverman, “Music therapy in mental health for illness management and recovery”

Many music therapists work in adult mental health settings after qualifying. For many, it will be a challenging and even daunting prospect. Yet until now, there has been no psychiatric music therapy text providing advice on illness management and recovery.
This essential book fills the gap in the literature, providing the necessary breadth and depth to inform readers of the psychotherapeutic research base and show how music therapy can effectively and efficiently function within a clinical scenario. The book takes an illness management and recovery approach to music therapy specific to contemporary group-based practice. It is also valuable for administrators of music therapy, providing innovative theory-based approaches to psychiatric music therapy, developing and describing new ways to conceptualize psychiatric music therapy treatment, educating music therapists, stimulating research and employment, and influencing legislative policies.
An important aim of the book is to stimulate both critical thought and lifelong learning concerning issues, ideas, and concepts related to mental illness and music therapy. Critical thinking and lifelong learning have been – and will likely continue to be – essential aspirations in higher education. Moreover, contemporary views concerning evidence-based practice rely heavily upon the clinician’s ability to think critically, seek a breadth of contradicting and confirmatory evidence, implement meta-cognition to monitor thoughts throughout processes, and synthesize and evaluate knowledge to make informed clinical decisions relevant and applicable to idiosyncratic contextual parameters.
For both students and clinicians in music therapy, this is an indispensable text to help them learn, develop, and hone their skills in music therapy

Andrew J. Bremner, David J. Lewkowicz, “Multisensory Development”

We perceive and understand our environment using many sensory systems-vision, touch, hearing, taste, smell, and proprioception. These multiple sensory modalities not only give us complementary sources of information about the environment but also an understanding that is richer and more complex than one modality alone could achieve. As adults, we integrate the multiple signals from these sense organs into unified functional representations. However, the ease with which we accomplish this feat belies its computational complexity. Not only do the senses convey information about the environment in different neural codes, but the relationship between the senses frequently changes when, for example, the body changes posture (e.g. when the eyes move in their sockets), or indeed shape, when the body grows across development. These computational problems prompt an important question which represents the key focus of this book: How do we develop the ability to integrate the senses? While there is a considerable literature on the development of single senses, such as vision or hearing, few books have considered the development of all our senses, and more importantly, how they develop the ability to work with each other.
This book is unique in exploring this extraordinary feat of human nature – how we develop the ability to integrate our senses. It will be an important book for all those in the fields of cognitive and developmental neuroscience.

Brad Stulberg, Steve Magness, “Peak Performance: Elevate Your Game, Avoid Burnout, and Thrive with the New Science of Success”

“A transfixing book on how to sustain peak performance and avoid burnout” ― Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Option B, Originals, and Give and Take
“An essential playbook for success, happiness, and getting the most out of ourselves.” ― Arianna Huffington, author of Thrive and The Sleep Revolution
“I doubt anyone can read Peak Performance without itching to apply something to their own lives.” ― David Epstein, New York Times bestselling author of The Sports Gene
A few common principles drive performance, regardless of the field or the task at hand. Whether someone is trying to qualify for the Olympics, break ground in mathematical theory or craft an artistic masterpiece, many of the practices that lead to great success are the same. In Peak Performance, Brad Stulberg, a former McKinsey and Company consultant and writer who covers health and the science of human performance, and Steve Magness, a performance scientist and coach of Olympic athletes, team up to demystify these practices and demonstrate how everyone can achieve their best.
The first book of its kind, Peak Performance combines the inspiring stories of top performers across a range of capabilities – from athletic, to intellectual, to artistic – with the latest scientific insights into the cognitive and neurochemical factors that drive performance in all domains. In doing so, Peak Performance uncovers new linkages that hold promise as performance enhancers but have been overlooked in our traditionally-siloed ways of thinking. The result is a life-changing book in which readers learn how to enhance their performance via myriad ways including: optimally alternating between periods of intense work and rest; priming the body and mind for enhanced productivity; and developing and harnessing the power of a self-transcending purpose.
In revealing the science of great performance and the stories of great performers across a wide range of capabilities, Peak Performance uncovers the secrets of success, and coaches readers on how to use them. If you want to take your game to the next level, whatever “your game” may be, Peak Performance will teach you how.

Dan Millman – The Four Purposes of Life: Finding Meaning and Direction in a Changing World

The Four Purposes of Life was born from Dan Millman’s decades-long search to make sense of life. He distills decades of experience into a concise map of the journey – the full scope of what we’re each here to accomplish here on planet Earth.
It puts together, for the first time, essential elements from the peaceful warrior teachings in their full and proper context –- providing a burst of clarity to bring our lives into sharper focus.

Learning Life’s Lessons
Finding Your Career and Calling
Fulfilling Your Hidden Life Path
Attending to This Arising Moment
A few highlights include:
the higher purpose of daily life
twelve required lessons in the school of life
how to make better decisions in career and relationships
the qualities of leadership no matter who you are
a mysterious system to clarifying your hidden calling
keys to mastering the most important purpose of all
Prepare for a quantum leap in self-knowledge, insight, and wisdom to light your way, expand your awareness, and improve the quality of your life. The seeds planted by this remarkable book will bear fruit for years to come.

David Scarborough, Mark John Somers – Neural Networks in Organizational Research: Applying Pattern Recogniton to the Analysis of Organizational Behavior

While the term neural networks may be unfamiliar to many organizational psychologists, exciting new applications of artificial intelligence are attracting notice among organizational behavior researchers. In Neural Networks in Organizational Research: Applying Pattern Recognition to the Analysis of Organizational Behavior, authors David Scarborough and Mark Somers bring researchers, academics, and practitioners up to speed on this emerging field, in which powerful computing capabilities offer new insights into longstanding, complex I/O questions such as employee selection and behavioral prediction. Neural networks mimic the way the human brain works, using interconnected nodes and feedback loops to learn to recognize even subtle patterns in vast amounts of data. They can process data far more quickly and efficiently than conventional techniques can, and produce better empirical results. They are especially useful for modeling nonlinear processes. The book traces the development of this methodology and demonstrates how it opens up new ways of thinking about traditional problems. and non-linear elements of a given problem, and thus enhance their own research.
