Love Me True: Overcoming Deception in Relationships

This course will explore ways partners get caught in patterns of subtle and blatant deception. It will use fun stories from real couples and examples from research to examine how cognitive and emotional processes cause blindness and rationalization, and distort couples’ perceptions. This course will identify research-based strategies to increase trust and connection, and professionals can use this information to identify and appropriately address issues related to self-deception and honesty in the individuals with whom they work.

Irritating The Ones You Love

Irritating the Ones You Love explores how “unconscious” reasons control so much of our choices and behavior in relationships—the hidden reasons we are drawn to particular partners, and how, unknowingly, the past affects our reactions in present situations. This book provides tools to help readers uncover the hidden influences on them so that they can choose partners for the “right” reasons, grow as human beings, stop making the same mistakes when issues arise with their partner, and make their relationships more intimate and happy.

Globesity

It is estimated that 1.4 billion adults—one in three across the globe—are overweight. Registered dietitian and health writer Clare Fleishman explores surprising new suspects contributing to our planet’s expanding girth, including air conditioning, drugs, pollution, and others which get little notice as lack of will power shoulders the blame. This important work examines how we live in a new century and why obesity has become a major killer from the American Midwest to the cities of Europe and across the deserts of Africa.

Sugar, Salt, & Fat, 2nd edition

This home-study course outlines the various factors that make foods palatable. It provides evidence that the "hyperpalatability" of our current food supply is undermining our normal satiety signals, motivating the drive to eat even when there is no physiologic need for food. This course presents evidence that repeated exposure to high quantities of palatable foods (i.e., those high in sugar, fat and salt) can alter the brain in ways similar to drugs of abuse, essentially "rewiring" the brain to promote compulsive eating and loss of control over food.
