The Nurture Effect by Anthony Biglan PH.D
In THE NURTURE EFFECT: How the Science of Human Behavior Can Improve Our Lives and Our World Dr. Anthony Biglan—a pioneer in the field of behavioral science—reveals the key to raising better young citizens and building a healthier society along with clear, specific action steps to leverage its power for individuals, families, schools, and finally for all society. By prioritizing the creation of nurturing environments at home, in school, at work, and everywhere else, Dr. Biglan advances a bold new method for wide-ranging societal improvement.
Behavioral science is a relatively new branch of the sciences, and only recently has its potential to vastly change lives for the better begun to be recognized. In THE NURTURE EFFECT, Dr. Biglan draws on the famous early behavioral work of scientists like B.F. Skinner, and synthesizes it with cutting-edge new research to make the case for nurture as the missing ingredient in the most troubled aspects of modern life.
