Hillsboro, OR, August 17, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Butte Publications, Inc.’s Featured Title for August is “Pro-Social Language: A Way to Think About Behavior" by Ellyn Lucas Arwood, Mabel Brown, and Carole Kaulitz. For the whole month, the featured title is 20% off when ordered on the Butte Publications website.
This excellent resource describes the processes and relationships among thinking, language, and learning to behave. These relationships are based on several principles the authors explain throughout the book. Strategies in “Pro-Social Language” emphasize behavior as a unit of study, separate from people. Behavior is considered a form of communication.
The authors interpret behavior based on knowledge about how people learn to think (neuroscience and cognitive psychology), use language (cognitive psychology and language), and become socially competent (cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and language). From there, they plan an approach to help the learner acquire pro-social ways to be able to make choices for behavior. The hope is that readers enjoy the book's emphasis on the learner's development of higher order, more pro-social development.
