Mind by Raj Persaud

Book Description

Although we are all born with brains and minds which are amazing, those who research and treat the symptoms of psychological and psychiatric disorder firmly believe we would all find our lives enhanced by a user's guide to the mind. We are supposed to be living in more enlightened times, yet it seems that more people than ever are suffering from mental health problems. In fact, statistics show: 1 in 4 people will experience some kind of mental health disorder in the course of their life; 1 in 6 of us will suffer from depression - most commonly between the ages of 25 and 44; and 1 in 10 people are likely to suffer from disabling anxiety at some stage in their life. Edited by Dr Raj Persaud and published in collaboration with the Royal College of Psychiatrists, "The Mind: A User's Guide" has been written by distinguished experts and offers information on the latest research into brain and mind sciences. It gives distinctive descriptions of behaviour, feelings and thoughts relating to a variety of conditions - including addictions, body image and bipolar disorders, depression and OCD - and helps us to clarify and understand symptoms and treatments. This handbook also confronts and debunks some of the most damaging myths and misconceptions surrounding the subject of mental health. Given how common these kinds of problems are throughout our lifespan, "The Mind: A User's Guide" could prove to be the most valuable reference book you own.

From the Edge of the Couch by Raj Persaud From the Edge of the Couch, Paperback (September 2012)

You may think that vampires and werewolves were merely the stuff of bad Hollywood films and mysterious legends, but as the author reveals, there are real people out there who believe they are werewolves and vampires. This book uses case studies to explain the thinking on brain function and emotional disorders.

Staying Sane by Raj Persaud Staying Sane, Paperback (August 2011)

Confronts crucial issues - such as emotional intelligence and the meaning of happiness - and offers strategies for achieving and maintaining a healthy, positive mental attitude, regardless of the stresses and strains of daily life. This book is packed with case histories, questionnaires and scientific research.

Simply Irresistible by Raj Persaud Simply Irresistible, Paperback (January 2008)

As psychology advances its understanding of the mind and brain, perhaps the last remaining bastion of mystery about why we do what we do relates to love and attraction. Packed with useful questionnaires and invaluable advice, this is a guide on how to catch - and keep - your perfect partner.

Motivated Mind by Raj Persaud Motivated Mind, Paperback (January 2006)

We all seem to be obsessed with advantage and disadvantage, fairness and the level playing field, without realizing that in life, the ability to overcome obstacles is a key part of any success strategy - as is our inner drive and motivation. This book investigates the research on this subject - and comes to some surprising conclusions.
