Russell brand mentors: how to help and be helped describes the impact that a series of significant people have had on the author – from the wayward youths he tried to emulate growing up in Essex, through the first ex-junkie sage, to the people he turns to today to help him be a better father.

I will encourage you to find mentors of your own and explain how you may better use the ones you already have. One of the unexpected advantages my drug addiction granted is that the process of recovery that I practise includes a mentorship tradition. It explores how we all – consciously and unconsciously – choose guides, mentors and heroes throughout our lives and examines the new perspectives they can bring.

#ad
Picador #ad - But despite the unprecedented attention, our understanding of addiction is trapped in unfounded 20th century ideas, addiction as a crime or as brain disease, and in equally outdated treatment. Biography. Like autistic traits, addictive behaviors fall on a spectrum -- and they can be a normal response to an extreme situation.

Ballantine Books. Challenging both the idea of the addict's “broken brain” and the notion of a simple “addictive personality, ” Unbroken Brain offers a radical and groundbreaking new perspective, arguing that addictions are learning disorders and shows how seeing the condition this way can untangle our current debates over treatment, prevention and policy.

UNBROKEN BRAIN #ad - Picador. By illustrating what addiction is, family, peers, and is not, the book illustrates how timing, history, culture and chemicals come together to create both illness and recovery- and why there is no “addictive personality” or single treatment that works for all. Combining maia szalavitz’s personal story with a distillation of more than 25 years of science and research, Unbroken Brain provides a paradigm-shifting approach to thinking about addiction.
