In this diverse world, parents and educators around the globe today face new challenges connecting with raising children. The Nigerian Igbo belief ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ can re-emerge as ‘It takes a multi-cultural perspective in the village that raises a child prepared for the culturally integrated world’. This book offers a multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary, and fresh, global perspective on parenting today by delving deep into the cultural, ethnic, and traditional characteristics of parenting, as well as the latest evidence-based scientific research on parenting a healthy child in every developmental stage for this era. Fascinating topics discussed here include connecting to an infant, potty training toddlers, teaching emotional regulation to preschoolers, task management of school-age children, dramatic transitions of tweens, and communicating effectively with an adolescent.

There is growing consensus in the world of business that truly exceptional performance can best be achieved by leveraging your strengths in building your career path and relationships, and by not threading where your innate weaknesses will hold you back.

Farshad Rafii, Professor Emeritus, Boston College
Dr. Zeine’s new book, Life Reset, is founded upon a solid base of venerable philosophical values and contemporary cognitive psychology. The reader is taken on an extensive and comprehensive investigation of the self, one which promotes the kind of integrated self-awareness necessary for significant personal or psychotherapeutic change. I am informed and inspired by Dr. Zeine’s sensitive and deeply probing inquiries into the often complicated and nuanced landscapes of self and other relationships. I highly recommend this book to all who dare to know themselves and their relationships on a deeper and more meaningful level.

Dr. Foojan Zeine’s Life Reset breathes fresh air into the field of psychology. Her comprehensive unpacking of the Awarness Integration Model fully empowers the reader to take the driver’s seat in the integration of evidence-based techniques to improve emotional well-being and navigating and releasing the impact of our historical trauma on our ability to utilize such tools, through exploration of the mind-body interplay. I cannot recommend this reading enough, for a journey of complete reset.

Dr. Zeine has masterfully captured the wisdom of practical life with honor and commitment to one’s self-expression and fulfillment in many areas of our lives. From self-discovery to relatedness, and general awareness of life as “it is” and as what we would like it “to be”. Life Reset provides valuable information for creating a journey of distinguishing what we are passionate about and how to create the life which we all desire. As someone who went through the process, I personally find the Awareness Integration Model very effective, relevant, and practical. I am very glad to see Dr. Zeine has provided access to the wisdom of this model for people to use and enjoy the outcome.

As the senior researcher on the psychology of time perspective, I am delighted to endorse the masterpiece by Foojan Zeine: Awareness Integration Therapy. Its subtitle displays the scope of this unique contribution to our knowledge base– “Clearing the Past, Creating a New Future, and Living a Fulfilled Life Now”. By revealing how all current psychotherapies can be effectively integrated, Zeine provides therapists a solid foundation for their treatments within this arc of understanding.

Dr. Foojan Zeine has walked a long and rocky road in her pursuit of knowledge and greater self-awareness, and we are fortunate to be the beneficiaries of her hard-earned insights and illuminating perspectives. Awareness Integration Therapy provides a fresh consideration of the many merits of awareness and the power to live well derived from this complex phenomenon. Perhaps the greatest strength of Dr. Zeine’s sensitive and multi-dimensional approach to the subject is her emphasis on awareness with intention, the gentle path she charts to help people turn their pain into power.
