What causes human beings to make a significant change in their lives, a transformative shift in thinking and actions? This fundamental question has preoccupied philosophers, priests, politicians, authors, and scholars for centuries. Today, psychologists and therapists who sit with clients session after session have a unique window into the human psyche, watching the rhythms of change unfold in front of them every day, and yet the process remains a mystery. Research has shown that even in cases of unqualified success, the client and the therapist often have wildly different views on what made it work. Taking that as his starting point, Jeffrey Kottler leads the reader on an exploration of human behavior, seeking to find out what it is that really makes a difference that can lead to transformative and lasting change.

Over the past four decades, the prevalence of autism, asthma, ADHD, obesity, diabetes, and birth defects has increased substantially among children throughout the world. Not coincidentally, more than 80,000 new chemicals have been developed and released into the global environment during this same period. Today the World Health Organization attributes more than one third of all childhood deaths to environmental causes. Children and Environmental Toxins: What Everyone Needs to Know offers an authoritative yet accessible question-and-answer guide to the"silent spring" of environmental threats to children's health. As the burdens of environmental toxins and chronic disease continue to defy borders, this book will be an invaluable addition to the conspicuously sparse literature in this area.

In Guns and Suicide, Michael Anestis reframes our perspective on gun violence by shifting the focus to suicide. Guns play a uniquely profound role in American suicide, and Anestis explains how they have this effect—not by making otherwise non-suicidal people want to die, but by facilitating suicide attempts among suicidal individuals.
