New on our bookshelf today:
Living and Loving Better with Time Perspective Therapy: Healing from the Past, Embracing the Present, Creating an Ideal Future
Philip G. Zimbardo and Rosemary K.M. Sword
In his 2012 book Time Cure, psychologist Philip Zimbardo introduced a groundbreaking therapeutic approach for PTSD sufferers, co-developed with Rosemary Sword. “Time Perspective Therapy” shifts mental focus from the past to the present, and from negative to positive events, helping anyone achieve a more balanced view of life. Featuring real-life stories, this book describes how TPT helps people living with depression, anxiety or stress to move beyond past negative experiences—from toxic relationships to bullying—toward a more positive future.
Coming up for Exposit Books is Living and Loving Better with Time Perspective Therapy: Healing from the Past, Embracing the Present, Creating an Ideal Future by psychologist Philip Zimbardo (conductor of the Stanford Prison Experiment) and counselor Rosemary K.M. Sword. This book examines the different ways in which people regard their past, present and future, and how their perspectives of these times can cause depression, anxiety and stress.
According to editor Lisa Camp, “The authors encourage their readers to be mindful of their time perspectives and in turn create more positive mindsets and healthier relationships—whether between peers, coworkers, romantic partners, or parents and children. Readers are left with invaluable mental tools and the power to better not only themselves, but also the world around them.”
