Download and read online Videogames Identity and Digital Subjectivity in PDF and EPUB This book argues that games offer a means of coming to terms with a world that is being transformed by digital technologies. As blends of software and fiction, videogames are uniquely capable of representing and exploring the effects of digitization on day-to-day life. By modeling and incorporating new technologies (from artificial intelligence routines and data mining techniques to augmented reality interfaces), and by dramatizing the implications of these technologies for understandings of identity, nationality, sexuality, health and work, games encourage us to playfully engage with these issues in ways that traditional media cannot.?

Download and read online Responding to Call of Duty in PDF and EPUB Call of Duty is the one of the most culturally significant video game franchises of the 21st century. Since the first game was released for PC in 2003, the first-person shooter has sold over 250 million copies across a range of platforms, along with merchandise ranging from toys and comic books to a special edition Jeep Wrangler. Top players can compete for millions in prize money in tournaments sanctioned by the Call of Duty World League. While the gaming community has reported on and debated each development, Call of Duty has received little scholarly attention. This collection of new essays examines the ideologically charged campaign mode of major franchise releases, with a special focus on militarism, realism and gender.

Download and read online Medicalizing Counselling in PDF and EPUB This book discusses how counselling, a profession known for diverse and innovative practices, has recently been influenced by scientific, marketplace, and administrative developments corresponding with a medicalized focus on psychiatric diagnoses and related evidence-based treatments. Tensions associated with this medicalized focus refer to competing logics and accountabilities regarding how to understand and address concerns brought to counselling. Tom Strong reviews such tensions as they relate to counsellors’ approaches to practice experienced as incompatible with a medicalized approach. The role of media and technology, therapy culture, and counsellor education, are examined with respect to medicalizing tensions that professionals and clients of counselling increasingly face. The book will interest readers who share concerns regarding the potential for a mental health monoculture grounded in the diagnose and treatment logic of medicalized counselling.

Download and read online The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump in PDF and EPUB The New York Times bestseller! More than two dozen psychiatrists and psychologists offer their consensus view that Trump's mental state presents a clear and present danger to our nation and individual well-being. This is not normal. Since the start of Donald Trump’s presidential run, one question has quietly but urgently permeated the observations of concerned citizens: What is wrong with him? Constrained by the American Psychiatric Association’s “Goldwater rule,” which inhibits mental health professionals from diagnosing public figures they have not personally examined, many of those qualified to answer this question have shied away from discussing the issue at all. The public has thus been left to wonder whether he is mad, bad, or both. In THE DANGEROUS CASE OF DONALD TRUMP, twenty-seven psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health experts argue that, in Mr. Trump’s case, their moral and civic “duty to warn” America supersedes professional neutrality. They then explore Trump’s symptoms and potentially relevant diagnoses to find a complex, if also dangerously mad, man. Philip Zimbardo and Rosemary Sword, for instance, explain Trump’s impulsivity in terms of “unbridled and extreme present hedonism.” Craig Malkin writes on pathological narcissism and politics as a lethal mix. Gail Sheehy, on a lack of trust that exceeds paranoia. Lance Dodes, on sociopathy. Robert Jay Lifton, on the “malignant normality” that can set in everyday life if psychiatrists do not speak up. His madness is catching, too. From the trauma people have experienced under the Trump administration to the cult-like characteristics of his followers, he has created unprecedented mental health consequences across our nation and beyond. It’s not all in our heads. It’s in his. "There will not be a book published this fall more urgent, important, or controversial than The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump...profound, illuminating and discomforting" —Bill Moyers

Download and read online Das weise Herz in PDF and EPUB Das neue große Buch des Erfolgsautors und berühmten buddhistischen Lehrers Schlägt man ein grundlegendes Buch über den Buddhismus auf, erwartet man als Erstes den Hinweis auf das allem Leben zugrunde liegende Leiden. Nicht so bei Jack Kornfield. Im Ursprung, schreibt er, liegt die Würde, die unser tiefstes Wesen ausmacht. Sie entstammt unserer Verbundenheit mit allem Lebendigen, die die Wurzel jedes wahrhaftigen Mitgefühls ist. Seine Vision des Buddhismus offenbart ein absolut positives und ermutigendes Menschenbild. Kornfield versteht den Buddhismus als großartiges psychologisches Konzept und nicht als ab- und ausgrenzende Religion. „Das weise Herz“ ist ein machtvolles Buch der Heilung und zugleich eine Laudatio auf Buddha als den größten Heiler. Es widerlegt überzeugend die Auffassung, dass über den 2500 Jahre alten Buddhismus nichts wirklich Neues und Aufregendes mehr geschrieben werden kann. „Das weise Herz“ ist Kornfields Meisterwerk und dürfte bald nach seinem Erscheinen einen Platz unter den zeitlosen Klassikern des Genres behaupten. • Jack Kornfield gehört mit dem Dalai Lama und Thich Nhat Hanh zu den ganz großen buddhistischen Lehrern • Erstmalige Darstellung des Buddhismus als eines großartigen Systems positiver Psychologie

Download and read online Der Geschmack von Laub und Erde in PDF and EPUB Was fühlt ein Tier, wie lebt es und wie nimmt es seine Umwelt wahr? Um das herauszufinden, tritt Charles Foster ein faszinierendes Experiment an. Er schlüpft in die Rolle von fünf verschiedenen Tierarten: Dachs, Otter, Fuchs, Rothirsch und Mauersegler. Er haust in einem Bau unter der Erde, schnappt mit den Zähnen nach Fischen in einem Fluss und durchstöbert Mülltonnen auf der Suche nach Nahrung. Er schärft seine Sinne, wird zum nachtaktiven Lebewesen, beschreibt wie ein Weinkenner die unterschiedlichen »Terroirs« von Würmern und wie sich der Duft der Erde in den verschiedenen Jahreszeiten verändert. In die scharfsinnige und witzige Schilderung seiner skurrilen Erfahrungen lässt er wissenswerte Fakten einfließen und stellt sie in den Kontext philosophischer Themen. Letztendlich geht es dabei auch um die eine Frage: Was es bedeutet, Mensch zu sein.
