SORT BY Relevancy
A fascinating look at the evolution of behavioral science, the revolutionary way it’s changing the way we live, and how nurturing environments can increase people’s well-being in virtually every aspect of our society, from early childhood education to corporate practices. If you want to know how you can help create a better world, read this book.
What if there were a way to prevent criminal behavior, mental illness, drug abuse, poverty, and violence? Written by behavioral scientist Tony Biglan, and based on his ongoing research at the Oregon Research Institute, The Nurture Effect offers evidence-based interventions that can prevent many of the psychological and behavioral problems that plague our society.
For decades, behavioral scientists have investigated the role our environment plays in shaping who we are, and their research shows that we now have the power within our own hands to reduce violence, improve cognitive development in our children, increase levels of education and income, and even prevent future criminal behaviors. By cultivating a positive environment in all aspects of society—from the home, to the classroom, and beyond—we can ensure that young people arrive at adulthood with the skills, interests, assets, and habits needed to live healthy, happy, and productive lives.
The Nurture Effect details over forty years of research in the behavioral sciences, as well as the author’s own research. Biglan illustrates how his findings lay the framework for a model of societal change that has the potential to reverberate through all environments within society.
Anthony Biglan, PhD, is a senior scientist at Oregon Research Institute and a leading figure in the development of prevention science.

SoulMates find each other when they are pursuing a life of passion and purpose.
When was the last time you felt truly in love with your life?
When was the last time you felt awed by the world around you?
If you are longing for deeper relationships, a greater sense of wonder, and a more vibrant life, the skill you need to cultivate is PASSION!
Did you know:
• Passion can be cultivated. Turned on as well as turned off.
• Passion is in the risk.
• Passion breeds passion and disinterest breeds disinterest. If you lack passion in your life, your relationships will be denied that energy.
• Passion is more than exuberance; it's endurance.
• To the degree that passion is vitality, honoring your passions enhances your vitality.
Gregg Levoy’s Vital Signs: The Nature and Nurture of Passion is all about how to do this, discussing the endlessly fruitful tug-of-war between freedom and domestication. It is about the wild in us and the tame, our natural selves and our conditioned selves.
