in-stock
Levi-Strauss measures the short distance between "complex" and "primitive" societies and finds a shared madness in the ways we enact myth, ritual, and custom. Yet he also locates a pure and persistent ethics that connects the center of Western civilization to far-flung societies and forces a reckoning with outmoded ideas of morality and reason.

By Jason M. Newell

Overwhelming empirical evidence indicates that new social workers going into child welfare or other trauma-related care discover emotional challenges. However, the revised CSWE Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) does not mandate the inclusion of content related to self-care in social work curricula. In a textbook that bridges the gap between theoretical and pragmatic approaches, Jason M. Newell provides a solution by conceptualizing self-care as the key to professional resilience. By examining four key constructs--stress, empathy, resilience, and self-care--from different theoretical dimensions, Newell offers an extensive, competency-based model. He describes a framework grounded in the ecological systems perspective conceptualizing self-care as a broader set of practice behaviors pertaining to the whole person. This comprehensive approach to self-care can help practitioners remain resilient and committed to social work in the face of trauma.

Beginning in classical antiquity, this book demonstrates how exhaustion has always been with us and helps us evaluate more critically the narratives we tell ourselves about the phenomenon. Pathologized, demonized, sexualized, and even weaponized, exhaustion unites the mind with the body and society in such a way that we attach larger questions of agency, willpower, and well-being to its symptoms. Exhaustion finds in our struggle to overcome weariness a more significant effort to master ourselves.

Evolving Brains, Emerging Gods locates the origin of gods within the human brain, arguing that religious belief is a byproduct of evolution. Using data ranging from ancient skulls and artifacts to brain imaging, primatology, and child development studies, this book traces how new cognitive abilities gave rise to new behaviors. Torrey details the neurobiological sequence that explains why the gods appeared when they did, connecting archeological findings including clothing, art, farming, and urbanization to cognitive developments.
