In 12 Rules for Life, clinical psychologist and celebrated professor at Harvard and the University of Toronto Dr. Jordan B. Peterson helped millions impose order on the chaos of their lives. Now, in this well-received sequel, Peterson delivers in Beyond Order:12 More Rules For Life, Twelve more life enhancing principles for resisting the exhausting toll that our desire to order the world inevitably takes.

In a time when the human will increasingly imposes itself over every sphere of life - from our social structures to our emotional states - Peterson warns that too much security is dangerous. What's more, he offers strategies for overcoming the cultural, scientific, and psychological forces causing us to tend toward tyranny, and teaches us how to rely instead on our instinct to find meaning and purpose, even - and especially - when we find ourselves powerless.

While chaos, in excess, threatens us with instability and anxiety, unchecked order can petrify us into submission. Beyond Order provides a call to balance these two fundamental principles of reality itself and guides us along the straight and narrow path that divides them.

(Reprinted from Book: Beyond Order:12 More Rules For Life)

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the clinician will be able to:

  • List and explain Peterson's proposed 12 More Rules for Life.
  • Identify the importance of rules, but also explain why sometimes it is important to break the rules.
  • Apply Peterson's philosophy to explain why the world we live in can be described as a 'world of potential'.
  • Articulate what it means to be a 'great player of life'.
  • Discuss how all the Rules tie back to the theme of 'change', and how to engage others in exploring how a lack of change can lead to stifled lives.
  • Compare and contrast how the opportunity for change creates opportunities for meaningful action.
  • Explain to others what point Peterson is making with '12 More Rules for Life' such as 'Do not hide unwanted things in the fog.'
  • Use Peterson's 12 more rules to help others learn how to avoid excessive control and rigidity in times of upheaval.
  • Articulate insights borrowed from psychology and humanity's great myths to identify sources of strength to draw upon in times of suffering.
  • Prevent unresolved past issues from affecting the accuracy of my life map by writing down the incident, coming to terms with what happened and stripping the memory of its horror.
