Online shopping continues to grow at an astounding rate. In 2012 more than $1 trillion were spent in online retailers alone. The nature of shopping is drastically changing - but with so little information on how best to interact with online customers, how are businesses to succeed? With Click.ology, Internet psychologist Graham Jones has filled that gap. Through years of research into Internet psychology and online consumer habits, Jones has written the first how-to of its kind for online businesses. With his C.L.I.C.K. system, businesses will learn the crucial ways in which online shopping differs from traditional brick-and-mortar salesmanship and how to tweak their websites to avoid the dreaded ´´abandoned shopping cart´´. Jones tackles tricky psychological subjects such as priming customers for a certain price point and the social aspect of online shopping in a way that makes his strategies easy to implement. In addition to these essential tips, Jones investigates the fast-paced future of ecommerce and what businesses can do to stay ahead of the game. In an online world where customers make their choices in a matter of seconds, Click.ology distills the essentials every company in the online economy needs to know in order to turn clicks into dollars. 1.

Almost every interaction involves negotiation, yet we often miss the cues that would allow us to make the most of these exchanges. In Getting (More of) What You Want, Margaret Neale and Thomas Lys draw on the latest advances in psychology and economics to provide new strategies for anyone shopping for a car, lobbying for a raise, or simply haggling over who takes out the trash. Getting (More of) What You Want shows how inexperienced negotiators regularly leave significant value on the table - and reveals how you can claim it.

How can virtue, psychology and spirituality help you flourish? Only 20 percent of the US population appears to be flourishing - characterized by an enthusiastic commitment to personal and professional growth and resilience in the face of disappointments. Psychologists traditionally focused on relieving depression and anxiety. Now, positive psychology aims to maximize positive emotions in the face of life´s challenges through living a virtuous life. Explore the role of Christian spirituality in living a virtuous - and therefore flourishing - life. Your guide, pioneering psychologist, professor, and Jesuit priest John J. Cecero, applies concepts from his book, Praying Through Lifetraps: A Psycho-Spiritual Path to Freedom, to explain how lifetraps, core fears, and experiences prevent us from flourishing. With fresh insight, he will explore depression, anxiety, and isolation as well as various forms of impulsivity and addictions to processes (e.g., work, gambling, shopping, sex, etc.) and substances (e.g., food, alcohol, drugs, etc.) These talks illustrate how Christian spiritual tools can powerfully supplement psychology to help you flourish. You will gain specific guidelines and spiritual practices to cultivate gratitude, temperance, humility, and forgiveness, among other key virtues, in the service of flourishing. The series concludes with specific recommendations for cultivating and sustaining a spiritual path. The final talk addresses an issue of paramount importance in today´s world, namely the call to exercise forgiveness. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fr. John J. Cecero SJ PhD.
