What does everyone in the modern world need to know? A renowned psychologist answers hard questions with a unique combination of ancient wisdom and clinical experience.
Jordan Peterson's work as a clinical psychologist has reshaped the modern understanding of personality, and now he has become one of the world's most popular public thinkers, with his lectures on topics ranging from the Bible to romantic relationships drawing tens of millions of viewers. In an era of polarizing politics, echo chambers and trigger warnings, his startling message about the value of personal responsibility and the dangers of ideology has resonated around the world.
In this book, he combines ancient wisdom with decades of experience to provide twelve profound and challenging principles for how to live a meaningful life, from setting your house in order before criticising others to comparing yourself to who you were yesterday, not someone else today. Gripping, thought-provoking and deeply rewarding, 12 Rules For Life offers an antidote to the chaos in our lives: eternal truths applied to our modern problems.
Toe sÍ sy, terwyl sy skuins afkyk na die mat, asof sy met haarself praat: “Vir te lank in my lewe het ek ongedefinieerd geleef. Ek weet nie wie ek is nie.”
Iets of iemand moet die katalisator wees wat ’n mens aan die dink sit oor jouself. Die vrou van Waterkloof was dit vir my, die een wat my oor myself laat wonder en bewus gemaak het: hier binne is ’n mens. Die vraag laat vra het: Wie is ek?
Oorkant jou is gevul met die stories van die uiteenlopende mense wat Juliana Coetzer se pad kruis as psigoterapeut. Deur hul verhale van swaarkry en herstel, neem Juliana die leser op ŉ reis wat eintlik ons almal sŉ is: Die pad van grootword en eienaarskap neem.
Sy vertel hoe sommige kliŽnte haar inspireer en uitdaag om haar eie vrese te konfronteer, maar ook watter uitwerking dit op terapeute het om aan die wreedheid van die mensdom blootgestel te word. Daar is die families wat uitmekaar geskeur is as gevolg van seksuele misbruik, die man wat sukkel met sy selfbeeld weens afknouery en ook die prostituut Venicia wat ’n tragiese symbool van verwaarlosing word.
Juliana se aardse humorsin maak dat sy egter ook die komiese oomblikke raaksien – totdat die volgende storie oor die menslike toestand jou wind uitslaan.

South Africa has one of the highest rates of extreme violence cases in the world, which has created a critical need for counsellors to be trained specifically in this area. In Trauma counselling: Principles and practice in South Africa today, a team of academics and practitioners have compiled a hands-on, yet theoretically grounded and evidence-based South African textbook on counselling victims of trauma. The first part of this publication focuses on the range of potentially traumatic events that commonly occur in South Africa. It clearly describes themes related to traumatic events and traumatic stress and introduces the basic principles of trauma counselling. This section also focuses on how traumatic stress may manifest in different client groups. The second part aims to familiarise students with a range of strategies suitable for trauma counselling, such as brief interventions, cognitive behaviour therapy, the narrative approach, strength-based interventions and integrated or alternative approaches. The final chapter is a personal one, in which the authors reflect on the lessons they have learnt from their own practice and the techniques they have developed to protect themselves from vicarious trauma.
This is the second edition of the book that sparked the current wave of interest in schema therapy. Although schema therapy was originally developed by Jeff Young in the USA, it was not until unprecedented outcome data was published from pioneering Dutch clinical trials with BPD patients that the clinical CBT community took serious notice. Schema therapy has now become one of the most popular forms of contemporary CBT. It has parallels to the 'third wave' of contextual behavioural science in that it develops traditional CBT in new directions, but while contextual behavioural science priorities behavioural techniques based on acceptance and mindfulness, schema therapy is more cognitive and draws on elements of experiential learning, object relations and psychodynamic therapy in addition to traditional CBT. The first edition of this book has sold more than 3,000 copies at a steady rate of around 500 units per year since 2009.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy has already helped millions of people overcome their issues and move their life forward - now it can really help you too. In this busy, demanding and often stressful modern world, it's a struggle to find time to even think about what your dreams and goals might be, let alone work towards actually realising them. It's so easy to get stuck in a routine, to opt for the easy answers, to feel a lack of inspiration and motivation and then wind up feeling anxious and depressed. Far from being an exciting or invigorating prospect, the mere idea of changing anything about your life soon seems hard work, scary and something to be avoided. But your life really can be better than it is now - you just need to learn how to really believe it can. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or CBT, can lend a hand. It will help you change the way you think and feel about yourself, about others and about the world around. As you begin to feel more positive, more motivated and more confident you'll soon begin to realise that your future is fully in your control. The scientifically-proven techniques of CBT are a powerful force to harness. Written by a leading psychologist, Change Your Life with CBT will deliver these tried and tested tools in an accessible package full of exercises, examples and practical advice and guidance . So if you're feeling that your life has got stuck in first gear, or even stuck in reverse, and if you believe that the main thing holding you back is probably yourself, Change Your Life with CBT can help you overcome your barriers and start to achieve your goals at home, at work and throughout your whole life.

Synthesizing cutting-edge neuropsychological and evolutionary research, Russell A. Barkley presents a model of EF that is rooted in meaningful activities of daily life.
