            The Power of Discord: Why the ups and downs of relationships are the secret to building intimacy, resilience, and trust

            The Power of Discord: Why the ups and downs of relationships are the secret to building intimacy, resilience, and trust (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            This original look at how to foster connections, attachment, and resiliency explains why working through discord is the key to better relationships. You might think that perfect harmony is the defining characteristic of healthy relationships, but the truth is that human interacti...ons are messy, complicated, and confusing. And according to renowned psychologist Ed Tronick and paediatrician Claudia Gold, that is not only okay, but crucial to our social and emotional development. In The Power of Discord they show how working through the inevitable dissonance of human connection is the path to better relationships with romantic partners, family, friends, and colleagues. Dr. Tronick was one of the first researchers to show, via 'The Still-Face Experiment', that babies are profoundly affected by their parents' emotions and behaviour. His work, which brought about a foundational shift in our understanding of human development, shows that our highly evolved sense of self makes us separate, yet our survival depends on connection. Working through the volley of mismatch and repair in everyday life helps us form deep, lasting, trusting relationships, and resilience in times of stress and trauma, and a solid sense of self in the world. Drawing on Dr Tronick's research and Dr Gold's clinical experience, The Power of Discord is a refreshing and original look at our ability to relate to others and to ourselves.

Full of glorious photos that capture the spirit, purpose, difficulties and humour of outback life, this book is a tribute to the surprising characters, the rarely told stories and the sometimes beautiful, sometimes strange places that exist along the back roads of our extraordinary country.

            Biopolitical Media: Catastrophe, Immunity and Bare Life (Hardback)

            • Ready to ship

            This book presents an historical account of media and catastrophe that engages with theories of biopolitics in the work of Michel Foucault, Giorgio Agamben, Roberto Esposito, Michael Hardt, Antonio Negri and others. It explains how responses to catastrophe in both media and cultu...ral criticism over the past 150 years are embedded in biological conceptions of life and death, health and illness, and human and non-human species. Mediated violence and destruction are often understood today in terms of the transmission of collective memory and according to therapeutic or redemptive accounts of cultural trauma. In contrast to these approaches this book emphasizes the use of media to capture viewer attention through shock, monitor and control bodies in economies of production and consumption, enmesh social relations in information networks, and situate subjects in discourses of victimhood, immunity, survival, and resilience.
