Self-regulation in adolescence ( Book )
11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 101 libraries worldwide
During the transition from childhood to adulthood, adolescents face a unique set of challenges that accompany increased independence and responsibility. This volume combines cutting-edge research in the field of adolescence and the field of motivation and self-regulation to shed new light on these challenges and the self-regulation tools that could most effectively address them. Leading scholars discuss general principles of the adolescent period across a wide variety of areas, including interpersonal relationships, health and achievement. Their interdisciplinary approach covers perspectives from history, anthropology and primatology, as well as numerous subdisciplines of psychology - developmental, educational, social, clinical, motivational, cognitive and neuropsychological. Self-Regulation in Adolescence stresses practical applications, making it a valuable resource not only for scholars, but also for adolescents and their family members, teachers, social workers and health professionals who seek to support them. It presents useful strategies that adolescents can adopt themselves and raises important questions for future research

Rethinking positive thinking : inside the new science of motivation by Gabriele Oettingen( file )
6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 35 libraries worldwide
So often in our day-to-day lives we're inundated with advice to "think positively." From pop music to political speeches to commercials, the general message is the same: look on the bright side, be optimistic in the face of adversity, and focus on your dreams. And whether we're trying to motivate ourselves to lose weight, snag a promotion at work, or run a marathon, we're told time and time again that focusing on fulfilling our wishes will make them come true. Gabriele Oettingen draws on more than twenty years of research in the science of human motivation to reveal why the conventional wisdom falls short. The obstacles that we think prevent us from realizing our deepest wishes can actually lead to their fulfillment. Starry-eyed dreaming isn't all it's cracked up to be, and as it turns out, dreamers are not often doers. Based on her groundbreaking research and large-scale scientific studies, Oettingen introduces a new way to visualize the future, called mental contrasting. It combines focusing on our dreams with visualizing the obstacles that stand in our way. By experiencing our dreams in our minds and facing reality we can address our fears, make concrete plans, and gain energy to take action. Whether you are unhappy and struggling with serious problems or you just want to improve, discover, and explore new opportunities, this book will deepen your ideas about human motivation and help you boldly chart a new path ahead

Exclusion as self-protection: The function of subtypes for ingroup members by Elizabeth J Parks-Stamm( file )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Five studies examined the consequences of subtyping ingroup members for evaluations of one's group and oneself. In Study 1, the impact of subtyping high-performing or low-performing ingroup members on group evaluations was examined. Study 2 tested whether self-evaluations would be influenced by subtyping outliers as well. Given the benefits of subtyping low-performing ingroup members for the group and the benefits of subtyping high-performing ingroup members for the self, Study 3 investigated participants' subtyping selection (i.e., high-performing vs. low-performing ingroup members) when the focus of the sorting task was on self-evaluations or group evaluations. Study 4 employed an alternative manipulation of subtyping. Lastly, Study 5 examined whether the benefit of subtyping high-performing targets for the self is limited to ingroup threats. In sum, these studies suggest subtyping ingroup members can serve a self-protective function
Perceptual consequences of endogenous and exogenous attention by Barbara Montagna( file )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Spatial covert attention is the selective processing of visual information at a given location in space in the absence of eye movements to that location. Covert attention can either be automatically captured by a sudden stimulus in the periphery of the visual field (exogenous or transient attention), or it can be allocated to a given location voluntarily, with conscious effort (endogenous or sustained attention). Both exogenous and endogenous attention affect early visual processing, as reflected in changes in performance in basic visual tasks: Increased contrast sensitivity and spatial resolution, and a faster rate of information processing at the attended location. These benefits in performance at attended locations are often accompanied by costs in performance at unattended locations, a trade-off revealing limits in the availability of visual processing resources and the possible role of attention in managing these resources. Moreover, attention alters the appearance of visual stimuli, which seem to be higher in contrast and more sharp when attended. The present dissertation extends our knowledge of how endogenous and exogenous attention affect both visual performance and visual appearance and of the extent to which the two types of attention differ. The first study (Chapter 1) demonstrates how exogenous and endogenous attention can differentially affect visual performance in a texture segmentation task constrained by spatial resolution. The second study (Chapter 2) demonstrates how both exogenous and endogenous attention trade off spatial acuity between attended and unattended locations of the visual field: When attention is allocated to a given location, acuity increases at that location but worsens at other locations. The third study (Chapter 3) demonstrates that exogenous attention can affect temporal aspects of visual experience: It alters the apparent rate of flicker
