The Courage to Be Yourself Book Excerpt:

This guide to embracing your true self is “a classic, a masterpiece, yet it is so honest that each time you read it, it speaks with a fresh, new voice” (Hugh Prather, author of The Little Book of Letting Go). Surrounded by the pressures of society, we often measure ourselves by impossible standards. We see images of idealized women and become scared that our own bodies, personalities, or ambitions do not measure up. Author and therapist Sue Patton Thoele knows what it’s like to be scared and unsure of your place. And she knows how to transform these fears into resilience. If our days are riddled with negative self-talk, our happiness inevitably suffers. Unhealthy mindsets can also infiltrate our relationships with others. Women, especially, feel the need to be caretakers, looking out for the needs of others and, often, putting those needs above our own. By learning how to identify these patterns, we can target areas that require change in our lives. In this motivational book, Thoele shares her personal story, as well as other women’s, in order to help readers learn how to journey from a place of fear to a life of courageous self-love and acceptance. In The Courage to Be Yourself discover how to set boundaries, communicate more effectively, and change self-deprecating behavior patterns. This collection of stories of growth and healing from Thoele and other women come together to make the perfect gift for women of all ages

Emotions Stress and Health Book Excerpt:

In this volume, Alex Zautra illustrates how experience with difficult or stressful emotional situations can, contrary to popular belief, be beneficial; for example, our ability to adapt to stress can be improved by experiencing difficult moments on emotional intensity. Zautra masterfully integrates research and theory on emotion and stress, identifying a unique and important role for stressful life events. He offers new insights into how stress and emotions can influence health and illness and demonstrates the wide applicability of this perspective across domains of love and marriage, work, aging, and community. By reviewing research on chronic pain, depression, child abuse, and addiction, Zautra also provides new insights into clinical problems.

Catherine Simmons, PhD, LCSW ìDrs. Simmons and Lehmann have given all of us in the helping professionsópractitioners and researchers alikeóa comprehensive resource for finding and selecting psychometrically sound, practical, strengths-based measures that we can use not only to ëlook at the resultsí but to do so in a way that we ëmeasure others by their strengths.í We look forward to seeing this invaluable resourceÖon every social workerís desk in the coming years.î -John G. Orme, PhD, MSW Professor, University of Tennessee -Terri Combs-Orme, PhD The Urban Child Institute Endowed Professor Traditionally, assessment and evaluation have focused on the negative aspects or deficits of a clientís presentation. Yet strengths, health, and those things that are going ìrightî in a personís life are key protective factors in the prevention and treatment of many mental health problems. Thus, measuring strengths is an important component of a balanced assessment and evaluation process. This is the first compendium of more than 150 valid and reliable strengths-based assessment tools that clinicians, researchers, educators, and program evaluators can use to assess a wide array of positive attributes, including well-being, mindfulness, optimism, resilience, humor, aspirations, values, sources of support, emotional intelligence, and much more. These tools provide a clear picture of an individualís strengths while being easy to complete, score, and interpret. The scales and instruments included are consistently formatted, organized according to construct measures, and include tools for working with adults, couples, families, children, and special populations. They represent a wide range of theoretical approaches and were written by a diverse array of professionals, including social workers, psychologists, nurses, physicians, and sociologists.

Psychological Problems and Their Big Deceptions Book Excerpt:

Psychological Problems And Their Big Deceptions reveals the multiple fraudulent and deceptive concepts of both Psychology and Psychiatry, such as the present-day gross misuse of the "PTSD" diagnosis, while introducing the foremost, but previously unrecognized, concept, the "Unconscious Entity." Though all people do not have a mental illness, everyone, without exception, has periods of being emotionally uncomfortable. This book convincingly shows what causes a state of being emotionally uncomfortable to any degree, and what is necessary to regain a state of being emotionally comfortable. In doing this, one will conclude it is a lot less the psychological counsel, in someone seeking professional help, and much more the listening, in any "counseling," that makes the cure. This book explores, in detail, a dimension of human communication Psychology and Psychiatry have yet to fully appreciate, that has an immense capacity to make a person more emotionally comfortable, as well as an equally immense capacity to keep a person emotionally comfortable. That dimension is prevalent in any on-going small talk, and is mutually utilized, to the same degree, by the participants of that talking.

"This text will be targeted to both active health educators, as well as students and instructors in health education teacher preparation programs. Per the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are roughly 118,500 health educators in the United States, with a 16% increase in jobs projected through 2026. This includes health educators working with audiences outside of K-12, which is the segment of the health education community we are targeting with this publication. On the academic side, the number of health education majors and minors can be difficult to pinpoint, as these are sometimes nested within public health programs. Within these programs, there are unlikely to be courses focused exclusively on SEL, but this would be an appropriate fit for courses focused on the health education curriculum, instruction, and assessment"--
