Shortlisted for the Mind 2008 Book of the Year prize, 'An Idea in Practice' is a celebration of the astonishing inroads human givens psychology has made since its inception ten years ago. Its efficacy, practicality and power to promote emotional health and clear thinking are demonstrated time and again throughout the book. Countless professionals in primary care, education, psychology, psychiatry, psychotherapy, social services, immigration services, physiotherapy, criminology and even diplomacy now incorporate the human givens approach into the way they go about their work. This book shows why. Like a powerful lens 'An Idea in Practice' brings into focus rich insights about what is missing from society today and how a variety of talented people from diverse backgrounds are redressing this. It is full of moving stories, humour and deeply thought-provoking material. Written and edited by Joe Griffin and Ivan Tyrrell, who first coined the term `human givens', they and the other contributors reveal not only why people who use this approach are effecting change so quickly, but how others who are trying to transform distressed lives for the better can do so too.
