by J.H. Oosterwegel, The Self In European And North American Culture Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Self In European And North American Culture book, How diverse or potentially overlapping are the numerous self-models, self-theories, and directions of self-research? It has become clear that the processes associated with the self are complex and diverse, and that many of the approaches associated with the self have been pursued in isolation. Moreover, the fact of there being different traditions within developmental and social psychology, as well as different traditions in Europe and North America, has also led to a certain cacophony when we examine the self-field as a whole. The chapters here confront these differences, trying to come to terms with phenomena that are overarching, that extend through the dimensions of developmental psychology, social psychology, motivation psychology, and parts of clinical psychology. The book as whole gives a clear presentation of the issues, questions and phenomena that surface in research fields known as self psychology.

by Abhaya Nath Tiwari, Self Knowledge A Critical Factor For Self Transformation Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Self Knowledge A Critical Factor For Self Transformation book, Self-knowledge: Why it matters to transform ourselves. What makes us who we are? Is it our intelligence, talent, or something else in life? Not as much as we think. Abhaya Tiwari argues - our vision of life is fogged by superficiality. It yearns granularity about our core constituents of self by plowing deeper into our inner self. Self–knowledge plays a critical role in accessing our true self that plays a far greater role in our understanding of our true self, purpose, success and happiness, untangling us from the vicissitudes of life. It matters even more in a disrupted world that is fragmented in our contemporary times, where self-knowledge and its application provide a distinctive edge for exponential growth. Self-knowledge is critical for self-transformation. It provides deeper understanding of self, viz; what it is and what it does, how it regulates and provides common-sense wisdom for its practical application in life. It provides much needed clarity about our true self, evaluation of world around our self, our purpose and competencies requiring mastery to achieve self-transformation. This book will also touch upon deeper understanding of neuropsychology of self and its true nature for high performance and happiness giving insights into human nature and its behavior. Abhaya Tiwari provides insights and guidance to parents, students, teachers, and working professionals to achieve what we set out to be in life and to be content and happy.
by Acharya Shree Sudarshan Jee Maharaj, Let Us Make Life A Celebration Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Let Us Make Life A Celebration book, Man's life is multidimensional. Like when a seed begins its journey of growth, its expansion is in infinite directions. But if the same seed does not get to sprout then all of its creational energies are lost in Nature. In the quantum domain, man is also like a seed, given the right environment its expansion reaches infinite dimensions. For this, its alignment with Nature and the infinite universe is necessary to be maintained. Fundamentally it is the subtle form of the universe only, what lies as the element in the microcosm as a living being is the same one that constitutes this universe also - as is the microcosm so is the macrocosm: 'Yatha Pinde Tatha Brahmande'. This deep understanding of spirituality is revealed in this book which is a collection of the preachings by Acharya Shree Sudarshan Jee Maharaj.

by L.Edward Wells, Social Control And Self Control Theories Of Crime And Deviance Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Social Control And Self Control Theories Of Crime And Deviance book, Control theories have dominated criminological theory and research since the 1969 publication of Hirschi's seminal work on the social bond. Social control and self-control theorists are unique in suggesting that patterns in criminal behaviors are better explained by variations in social constraints rather than by individual motivational impulses, thus indicating that their main concerns are the explication and clarification of the techniques, processes, and institutions of informal social control. The four major sections of this volume focus on: the similarities and differences among the major contributors to the early developmental stage of social control theory; the central importance of parents, peers, and schools in the creation of informal control mechanisms and their link to crime and delinquency; the theoretical underpinnings of self-control theory, including empirical tests and criticisms; and theoretical integrations of social control and self-control theories with various motivational theories of crime and delinquency.
