Self-theories : their role in motivation, personality, and development by Carol S Dweck( Book )
21 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 743 libraries worldwide
"This text sheds light on how people work - why they sometimes function well and, at other times, behave in ways that are self-defeating or destructive. Dweck presents her groundbreaking research on adaptive and maladaptive cognitive-motivational patterns and shows: how these patterns originate in people's self-theories; their consequences for the person - for achievement, social relationships, and emotional well-being; their consequences for society, from issues of human potential to stereotyping and intergroup relations; and the experiences that create them." "Throughout, Dweck shows how examining self-theories illuminates basic issues of human motivation, social cognition, personality, the self, mental health, and development. This text is a must-read for researchers in social psychology, child development, and education, and is appropriate for both graduate and senior undergraduate students in these areas."--BOOK JACKET

In the last two decades, an approach to the study of motivation has emerged that focuses on specific cognitive and affective mediators of behavior, in contrast to more general traits or motives. This book adds to this process-oriented approach a developmental perspective. Critical elements of motivational systems can be specified and their interrelations understood by charting the origins and the developmental course of motivational processes. Moreover, a process-oriented approach helps to identify critical transitions and effective developmental interventions

Mindset : the new psychology of success by Carol S Dweck( Sound Recording )
3 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 184 libraries worldwide
"Dweck explains why it's not just our abilities and talent that bring us success--but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn't foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to raise their grades, as well as reach our own goals--personal and professional. Dweck reveals what all great parents, teachers, CEOs, and athletes already know: how a simple idea about the brain can create a love of learning and a resilience that is the basis of great accomplishment in every area"--Container
