This book is about how to become an amazing public speaker, creative communicator, effective presenter, and humorous messenger. Summing up, it tells many stories of triumph and defeat, stories of pride and terrible shame, stories of friendship and stories of enmity, inspiring stories on how Lloyd Luna became one of the highest paid motivational speaker in the Philippines and Asia today. From the introduction After an hour of motivational talk that I’d spice up with nonstop humor, the audience often just couldn’t get enough of me. They would shout “More! More!” in chorus and I would then oblige them by extending my talk for another 30 minutes or so. Often, after only the first five minutes, the audience in a good many of such talks would rather that the speaker stop and leave the stage. Why then would they want an extension in my case? Do they love my presentation? Do they love being entertained while being taught at the same time? Or do they just plain love me? Make a guess. Because unless you see me on stage or watch me on YouTube, you won’t have a proper appreciation of how I do it. But as tempting as it is to make this book about me, it really isn’t about me. It’s really about you. It’s just that I can only do it by talking about me. I just need to tell stories about me to make a point, that’s all. For this book is not a product of a routine Google search or the typical how-to that you find in the Internet. To teach you about public speaking, I can only talk about my own successes and failures in doing it. Indeed, this is about my real-life experiences in public speaking.

Psychological Investigations

I think social therapy should be taught as an art form, not as a science. ... art school all the time, and they learn something about how to be an artist.

View: 103

"Psychological Investigations" lets readers listen in on one of the most exciting developments in psychology today as it is unfolding. With the current trend in therapy reflecting a movement away from traditional psychology and towards more postmodern psychologies, social therapy, a psychotherapeutic approach developed by Fred Newman, emerges as a qualitatively new way of doing therapy. Social therapy blends philosophy, the arts, and political concerns into a group approach that focuses on improved social functioning. "Psychological" "Investigations" provides insight into the revolutionary development of social therapy--an improvisational, investigatory, development-focused method of treatment. Featuring dialogues drawn from transcripts of teaching and supervisory sessions between Newman and therapists, the book presents a comprehensive guide to the core philosophical and political issues of social therapy and the social therapeutic group process. Instead of introspection and insight--traditional means to self-realization--Newman and social therapy encourages activity, involvement and commitment to causes larger than the individual ego.

The place of emotion in legal education is rarely discussed or analysed, and we do not have to seek far for the reasons. The difficulty of interdisciplinary research, the technicisation of legal education itself, the view that affect is irrational and antithetical to core western ideals of rationality – all this has made the subject of emotion in legal education invisible. Yet the educational literature on emotion proves how essential it is to student learning and to the professional lives of teachers. This text, the first full-length book study of the subject, seeks to make emotion a central topic of research for legal educators, and restore the power of emotion in our teaching and learning. Part 1 focuses on the contribution that neuroscience can make to legal learning, a theme that is carried through other chapters in the book. Part 2 explores the role of emotion in the working lives of academics and clinical staff, while Part 3 analyses the ways in which emotion can be used in learning and teaching. The book, interdisciplinary and wide-ranging in its reference, breaks new ground in its analysis of the educational lifeworld of situations, communities, actors and interactions in legal education.
