Dopamine For Dinner by Joan Borsten & The Chefs of the World Famous Malibu Beach Recovery Center
Requirements: ePUB, MOBI reader, 87 MB
Overview: "Dopamine for Dinner," is the long-awaited first Malibu Beach Recovery Diet Cookbook, based on our famous low-glycemic diet.
Our clients arrive addicted to alcohol, street drugs and prescription pills, often depressed and anxious. Over the last six years we have seen the positive impact of not allowing them to eat sugar or white carbs, drink coffee or caffeinated drinks while in treatment. The diet, combined with a special nutracutical called SynaptaGenX, and daily practice of Kurma Yoga, helps clients begin to look good and feel good very quickly. They become mentally very clear, and are able to benefit from working with our stellar clinical teams.
"Your low glycemic lunch was out of this world," said Dr. Kenneth Blum PhD. In 1990 Dr. Blum, an eminent scientist and our advisor on neuroscience co-discovered with Dr. Ernest Noble the link between genetics and addiction. "You have what is really going to turn a person’s life around. That includes, and that is, a life-style change — and more importantly — an easy program that an individual can follow for the rest of their life."
"Dopamine for Dinner" was written for our alumni, and all others in any stage of recovery from addiction, seeking long-term sobriety. Four of our chefs — Yannick Marchand, Licia Jaccard, John Handal and Sergio Galvao – each contributed 7 days of meal plans and altogether over 150 simple but elegant breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes.

Life is a work in progress, as ever-changing as a sandy shoreline along the beach. During the years Joan Anderson was a loving wife and supportive mother, she had slowly and unconsciously replaced her own dreams with the needs of her family. With her sons grown, however, she realized that the family no longer centered on the home she provided, and her relationship with her husband had become stagnant. Like many women in her situation, Joan realized that she had neglected to nurture herself and, worse, to envision fulfilling goals for her future. As her husband received a wonderful job opportunity out-of-state, it seemed that the best part of her own life was finished. Shocking both of them, she refused to follow him to his new job and decided to retreat to a family cottage on Cape Cod.

Twins in Session: Case Histories in Treating Twinship Issues by Joan A. Friedman
Requirements: .PDF reader, 666 KB
Overview: Why would a twin sacrifice her own needs to make sure her same-age sibling is always cared for? What would cause a twin to have panic attacks when he and his brother go away to separate colleges? Why do some twins find it so difficult to develop friendships and romantic relationships? The "twin mystique" and twins’ own expectations of their relationship contribute to their difficulties. A therapist who understands the psychology of twins can articulate what’s going on between the siblings. Clients will feel validated as well as relieved to gain clarity about a defining aspect of their identity.
Twins in Session shows therapists how important the twin connection is, what it means, why it’s sometimes more important than the relationship to either parent, and why some twins don’t know who they are apart from the twinship. It will help therapists become a trusted outsider who can give twin clients perspective about their twinship issues and assist them in developing healthy relationships.

The Evolution of Grammar: Tense, Aspect, and Modality in the Languages of the World by Joan Bybee, Revere Perkins, William Pagliuca
Requirements: .PDF reader, 10.3 Mb
Overview: Joan Bybee and her colleagues present a new theory of the evolution of grammar that links structure and meaning in a way that directly challenges most contemporary versions of generative grammar. This study focuses on the use and meaning of grammatical markers of tense, aspect, and modality and identifies a universal set of grammatical categories. The authors demonstrate that the semantic content of these categories evolves gradually and that this process of evolution is strikingly similar across unrelated languages.
Through a survey of seventy-six languages in twenty-five different phyla, the authors show that the same paths of change occur universally and that movement along these paths is in one direction only. This analysis reveals that lexical substance evolves into grammatical substance through various mechanisms of change, such as metaphorical extension and the conventionalization of implicature. Grammaticization is always accompanied by an increase in frequency of the grammatical marker, providing clear evidence that language use is a major factor in the evolution of synchronic language states.
The Evolution of Grammar has important implications for the development of language and for the study of cognitive processes in general.
