A leading expert on resilience and behavioral science, Dr. Kristen Lee is a clinician who has developed a new psychology of thinking model based upon her more than twenty years of clinical practice, the latest neuroscience, and her own research findings. Mentalligence: A New Psychology of Thinking―Learn What It Takes to be More Agile, Mindful, and Connected in Today's World
is a guide that will help the reader build meta-awareness by emphasizing an impact-driven rather than a performance-obsessed mindset, and adopt a model of 'collective efficacy' that is less I-focused and more we-focused, to facilitate positive social impact at a time when it's desperately needed. This is what psychologists call 'The Good Life'―living mindfully and consciously. Rather than falling for predominant definitions of 'success' that leave us boxed in, depleted, and oblivious to ways we can work together, "Mentalligence" helps us find the thinking and behavioral agility to work towards better outcomes for all. Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, "Mentalligence" is unreservedly recommended for both community and academic library Psychology and Self-Help collections. It should be noted for the personal reading lists of students, academia, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject that "Mentalligence" is also available in a digital book format.
